‘They don’t care!’: ‘The View’ blows up as Joy Behar says GOP ‘sell their souls’ to cover for Trump

Published

Things got feisty on ABC’s The View on Wednesday after co-host Joy Behar insisted that Republicans will “sell their souls” to cover up for Trump as long as he signs their proposed tax cuts.

During a discussion of President Donald Trump’s alleged ties to the Russian government, Behar ripped the Republican Party for supposedly being unwilling to investigate the Trump campaign’s reported regular contacts with Russian intelligence officials throughout 2016.

“The Republican Party is not stepping up the way they should,” she said. “They will sell their soul down the river — sell democracy down the river — so that the rich can get tax cuts.”

Co-host Jedediah Bila quickly interjected and pointed out that several Republicans — including GOP Sens. Mitch McConnell, Richard Burr, and Roy Blunt — had all expressed a desire to have a full investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.

Behar, however, was not impressed, and repeatedly raised her voice to say, “they don’t care” about getting to the bottom of the Russia scandal.

Co-host Sunny Hostin then jumped in to say that, if Trump really did collude with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign, “this is treason.”

But his racist, white nationalist, white supremacist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, biphobic remarks and disturbing ties to far right radical European politicians – including one he endorsed who has ties to a neo-Nazi, finally caught up with him.

When the president’s son-in-law truly was a great success

Published

on

For many Americans, the idea of the president tasking his son-in-law with solving national, even international, crises, seems problematic, if not absurd. But it happened once before and turned out to be the kind of “great success story” our current first family wants us to believe in again. Slightly over a century ago, as the US mobilized for the First World War, the nation faced devastating breakdowns of its financial and transport systems. In response, President Woodrow Wilson leaned heavily on his talented and experienced Treasury Secretary, William McAdoo, who just happened to be his son-in-law. Looking back at this episode tells us a lot about what makes for successful emergency management at the highest levels of government.

Here are 7 ways Donald Trump is just like Henry Ford — and why that’s not good for American democracy

Published

On May 21, speaking at the Ford Motor Company’s Rawsonville plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Donald Trump paid his latest homage to Henry Ford, lauding the family’s “good bloodlines” with Ford’s great grandson sitting in the front row.
