Trump auditioning man who called Hillary Clinton a c*nt for agriculture secretary

Published

on

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, who came under fire last month after calling former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a “c*nt,” is interviewing to become Donald Trump’s Agriculture Secretary, Politico reports.

Miller travelled to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate Friday to meet with transition team members, reportedly to audition for one of the few remaining cabinet positions. Miller’s first act as Texas Agriculture Commissioner granted “full amnesty to cupcakes,” the Texas Tribune reports, when he promised Texas parents he’d protect their right to bring desserts to school.

In November, Miller retweeted an obscene post about Clinton.

He or a staffer quickly deleted the tweet, posting instead “@MillerForTexas HAS BEEN HACKED. The disgusting re-tweet has been removed and we have changed all account passwords. Be advised.”

A few minutes later, Miller deleted the tweet that claimed the account was hacked and admitted the tweet was sent by the campaign. He then issued a statement blaming the mishap on a campaign staffer who “inadvertently retweeted a tweet that they were not aware contained a derogatory term”

“I said, ‘Why don’t y’all just do some retweets?'” Miller told The Texas Tribune. “They didn’t notice it had a derogatory term in it and they tweeted it out.”

Even Texas Gov. Greg Abbott condemned the retweet, telling Miller, ”no true Texas gentleman would ever talk this way.”

Miller isn’t the only one who’s faced criticism for sharing derogatory posts “inadvertently.” Fittingly, Trump himself drew fire in July after tweeting a graphic of Hillary Clinton that prominently featured the Star of David and a pile of money. The meme originated on the neo-Nazi message board, 8Chan.

The Trump campaign deleted the post before subbing in a circle for the Star of David.

Andrea Mitchell knocks Biden for virtual convention speech: ‘How much does that damage the campaign?’

Published

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell suggested to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden could "damage" his campaign by holding a virtual convention speech.

Mitchell made the remark after President Donald Trump said that he was considering holding his convention speech at the White House.

"Joe Biden is not going to Milwaukee," Mitchell told Pelosi. "How much does this damage the campaign?"

Pelosi disagreed by insisting that Democrats will hold a "great convention."

Mitchell then asked about Trump's plan to hold his convention speech at the White House.

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

on

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.
