Anti-Trump protester has perfect response for why he’ll never support Donald Trump

Published

on

People across the country took to the streets in various cities on Wednesday night in response to President-Elect Donald Trump, and their message was that he is absolutely not their president.

CNN spoke with protesters in New York City to get an idea of why they were out there and why they wouldn’t get behind the next President of the United States.

“I’m actually here to support the outrage of what happened and I’m not surprised, I’m not shocked,” one individual told CNN. “I’ve been having this conversation with my friends over the last year and a half and I was expecting a turnout like this because Trump did something very interesting. He opened the key and turned the key to feelings people are having in this country.”

The reporter asked, “What kind of feelings do you think he turned the key on?” to which the protestor responded, “Racism, separatism, division. All those things he’s been running on.”

The CNN correspondent then said to the group of protestors, “Trump now says what he wants to do is he wants to be the president of all the people regardless of race, background, religion.”

One individual chimed in with an important question. The protestor asked, “How does he take back everything he’s already said in these debates, and how do we have people watching these debates, these two people, and the intelligence level between these two people?”

The individual continued, “I’m just confused here. He now wants to be for all of the people when before he wanted to be for some of the people? Who are all of the people? We live in a diverse nation and yet we’re not being represented.”

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

Rick Wilson obliterates Dems for letting Lewandowski get away with stonewalling: ‘So bad it makes me cringe’

Published

on

Anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson dropped the hammer on House Democrats Tuesday for letting Trump minion Corey Lewandowski make a mockery of their oversight powers.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
