Jason Johnson: No matter how many times Trump’s lawyers ‘shine up his turd’ Muslim ban it’s still unconstitutional

Published

During a panel discussion on MSNBC, an editor for The Root said that someone in the Trump White House will likely “take the fall” for President Donald Trump’s botched immigration order and that a new one will be a matter of shining “up this turd.”

Discussing the executive order that was smacked down by a unanimous 9th Circuit Court, Dr. Jason Johnson said heads will likely roll in the White House.

“There is probably going be a firing,” Johnson began. “We have to think about the fact that Donald Trump went though three campaign managers in a year last year. Does anyone think that their jobs are safe in the White House? They shouldn’t.”

Turning to reports that a revised order order may be coming from Trump next week, Johnson said the order is still based on “white-supremacism.”

“An even bigger issue is this, “Johnson explained. “The fact that you have this Muslim ban to begin with, the fact that this administration is driven by the this white-supremacist racist notion that brown people and tan people from other countries, and that Muslims are incapable are less fit or more likely to cause more crime and terrorism than white-supremacists is a problem. So I don’t care how many times or ways they want to shine up this turd, it is still bad policy, it is still unconstitutional.”

On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Justice Department officials are closing insider trading investigations into three senators — Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

However, a fourth probe, into insider trading allegations against Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), is reportedly ongoing.

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation began the investigations two months ago, as reports emerged that several members of Congress, their spouses or their investment advisers sold hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock after lawmakers attended closed-door briefings about the threat posed by the new coronavirus," reported Aruna Viswanatha. "Some of those trades spared lawmakers as much as hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses as stocks sank by mid-March."

White House insider says Trump spent Memorial Day weekend ‘in a rage’ – and sees himself as COVID-19’s biggest victim

Published

An inside source speaking to Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman says President Trump spent his Memorial Day weekend "in a f*cking rage" over what he sees is his unfair treatment over his response to the coronavirus outbreak. Even as the death toll neared 100,000 and unemployment swelled to over 38 million, Trump still sees himself as the victim, Sherman writes.

"Trump’s outburst reflected his growing frustration that, at this stage of the race, he is losing to Joe Biden," writes Sherman. "According to a Republican briefed on the campaign’s internal polls, Trump is trailing Biden by double digits among women over 50 in six swing states. 'Trump knows the numbers are bad. It’s why he’s thrashing about,' the Republican said."
