Jan Brewer: Donald Trump was ‘waterboarded’ by women who accused him of groping

Published

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) argued that Donald Trump was “waterboarded” by a group of women who have accused him of sexual assault and other abusive behavior.

At a campaign rally in Gettysburg over the weekend, Trump vowed to sue “all of these liars” who have recently accused him of groping and unwanted touching.

CNN host Jake Tapper told Brewer on Sunday’s State of the Union that Trump had an opportunity “to make a pitch to voters about things that matter to them” but he chose to attack his accusers instead.

“I’m sorry, people don’t feel sorry for him,” Tapper explained.

“He’s been waterboarded by these issues,” Brewer replied. “It seems like it’s been somewhat of a put-up impression on Donald Trump from all these people lining up. It’s just unbelievable. And anybody that’s been under those kinds of assaults, I think would want to defend themselves.”

“Donald Trump is authentic and he tells it like it is,” she added. “And he went out and told the public exactly what he’s going to deliver when he become president of the United States.”

Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.

"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.

More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.

At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.

Published

on

In a progressive welcoming move, Chief Justice John Roberts issued his New Year's Eve annual report urging his fellow federal judges to stand up for democracy.

"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."

Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why

Published

on

According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.

As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
