Trump trolled by John Lewis’s constituents after insulting their district as ‘horrible’ and ‘crime ridden’

Published

on

Donald Trump’s tweets attacking Rep. John Lewis did not sit well with the congressman’s constituents on Saturday morning, with residents of Georgia’s Fifth District lashing out at the president-elect on Twitter for saying their community is “in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested).”

According to Trump, who attacked the civil rights icon on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, Lewis needs to “spend more time on fixing and helping his district,” instead of questioning Russian involvement in the election.

Trump’s tweets were in response to an interview Lewis gave to political analyst Chuck Todd, telling the NBC host, “I don’t see the president-elect as a legitimate president. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

While others on Twitter ripped into Trump for attacking the civil rights hero, Lewis’s constituents in Georgia tweeted photos of the supposedly “horrible and falling apart community,” at the behest of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Are you a resident of John Lewis’ ? Tweet us pictures of where you live,” the paper tweeted.

What followed were pictures of what Donald Trump would have his followers believe was a hellhole.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
