Trump just gave an anti-Semitic speech ‘dripping with hatred’ — and the Internet is horrified

Published

on

Donald Trump lashed out at global elites who undermine American sovereignty through “international banks” — and many observers couldn’t help but notice the underlying anti-Semitic message.

The Republican presidential candidate flatly denied recent reports of women claiming he’d sexually abused or assaulted them after the release of a 2005 recording that showed Trump boasting about getting away with grabbing women by the genitals because he was rich and famous.

During the speech in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump threatened to sue the New York Times, which published some of those accounts, and he agreed with his supporters’ call to arrests and imprison his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

“Honestly, she should be locked up, she should be,” Trump said.

He accused Clinton of being “the vessel (of) a corrupt global establishment that’s raiding our country and surrendering the sovereignty of our nation.”

Trump portrayed the Nov. 8 election as an apocalyptic choice.

“This is not simply another four-year election,” he said. “This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we, the people, reclaim control over our government. The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration, and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.”

“This election will determine whether we remain a free country in the truest sense of the word or we become a corrupt banana republic controlled by large donors and foreign governments,” Trump said. “The election of Hillary Clinton would lead to the destruction of our country.”

Many internet users were alarmed at Trump’s language, noting its reliance on anti-Semitic themes and more suited to a fascist dictator than a presidential candidate.

Viewers baffled as GOP counsel appears to push anti-Trump talking points during Yovanovich cross-examination

Published

on

House Republican impeachment inquiry attorney Steve Castor on Friday baffled viewers with a line of questioning that appeared to be beneficial to House Democrats' case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Among other things, Castor referred to ambassador Bill Taylor as a man of integrity and also didn't challenge former ambassador Marie Yovanovich's story that she had been the subject of a smear campaign launched by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

In fact, Castor's line of questioning was so friendly to House Democrats, that some Twitter users joked that he was a "deep state plant" who's secretly helping to impeach the president.

CNN legal analysts rip apart Jim Jordan’s ‘nonsensical’ defense of Trump witness intimidation

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig blasted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for arguing that President Donald Trump hadn't engaged in witness intimidation by tweeting attacks on a former ambassador as she testified against him in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan argued the tweet can't be witness intimidation because Marie Yovanovitch wouldn't have known about the attack if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't read it to her, but Honig said the GOP lawmaker's claim was ridiculous.

"His point is nonsensical," Honig said. "Of course, she was going to find out about a tweet that went out to 60 million people-plus. The law covers any way you look regarding timing."
