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.”

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates?

Published

on

Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.

Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points in the Dow.

Trump Jr. and McGahn didn’t testify before the Mueller grand jury — and a federal judge wants to know why

Published

on

During the Russia investigation, former special counsel Robert Mueller sought testimony from a long list of people. But according to a court filing on Sunday, two people who Mueller did not force to testify before a grand jury were Donald Trump Jr. and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. And U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell wants to know why.

The court filing on Sunday, according to The Week, was in response to a ruling Howell made on Thursday — when Howell asserted that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was withholding too much information from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York. The House Judiciary Committee, The Week’s Peter Weber reports, has been “wrangling” with DOJ over the evidence that Mueller obtained during his lengthy investigation.

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump furiously took time Twitter, blasting the effort to impeach him over the Ukraine scandal as a "lynching" and threatening that a future Republican Congress will cook up charges against a Democratic president.

Trump's outburst did not impress many commenters on social media, who quickly dogpiled him in criticism and mockery:

You are seriously comparing your impeachment to hate crimes against African-Americans?
