Jan Brewer: ‘Orchestrated’ Trump protesters are ‘just awful’ — and many owe allegiance to Mexico

Jan Brewer appears on CNN (screen grab)

Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, a longtime Donald Trump ally and potential cabinet pick, is simply shocked that so many Americans are out protesting the president-elect before he even takes office.

CNN reports that Brewer appeared on KTAR News 92.3 FM Arizona radio, where she bashed many of the American citizens who were exercising their rights to protest their government. In particular, she took swipes at a group of protesters who waved Mexican flags at rallies and used it as proof that many of these demonstrators are disloyal to the United States.

“Obviously their allegiance isn’t to the United States, it was to Mexico,” she said, while also calling the protests “orchestrated” and “just awful.” “They’re not entitled to behave like that, I don’t believe. You know, people protest, it’s fine. A lot of them aren’t legal citizens and some of them are and they didn’t even vote and now they’re outraged. They could at least give him a chance.”

Brewer went on to sneer that a lot of the people who have been protesting Trump for the last week “obviously don’t have jobs” because otherwise how could they possibly find the time to exercise their first amendment rights?

“What day are we going on now, seven?” asked Brewer rhetorically. “And they’re still out there protesting. And obviously, I have even recognized a couple of people and the signs are the same signs that we’ve seen all seven days, practically. They obviously don’t have jobs, right? So what better things do they have to do? So they’re just out there marching away. And these kids that are leaving school. If I was the principal of that school, I’d lay down the law. This is outrageous. It’s just out of control.”

Chuck Todd shreds GOP senator for making rules ‘out of thin air’: ‘The party looks like a bunch of hypocrites’

Published

Chuck Todd, host of NBC's Meet the Press, on Sunday told Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (MO) that his party "looks like a bunch of hypocrites" because they are set to nominate President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick in an election year.

Following Trump's nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the high court, Todd reminded Blunt that Republicans had blocked former President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nomination because it was an election year.

"You have no qualms about doing this before the election?" Todd asked. "You've seen, polling is pretty overwhelming on this issue. A large majority of the American public do not believe this president before the election should make this pick and it should be whoever wins the election."

Tom Cotton cornered by CNN’s Tapper over Trump’s threat to not hand over power if he loses in November

Published

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) was put on the spot on Sunday morning during his appearance on CNN when "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper pressed him over Donald Trump's suggestion he won't peacefully step down if he loses the election.

With Cotton glibly commenting he expected a peaceful transfer of power “in January 2025, after President Trump finishes his second term,” Tapper pressed him about the president's comments.

“You’re not at all disturbed by what he’s saying about if the ballots aren’t counted? " the CNN host asked. "It is really quite alarming to a lot of Republicans his refusal to say, 'of course, if I lose, I will abide by a peaceful transfer of power.'”
