Jeb Bush schools Trump on the border wall: ‘We have one in many places — I don’t know if you’ve been there’

Published

Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) can’t resist a few jabs at President Donald Trump‘s lack of knowledge about basic American facts.

While at the Milken Institute’s Global Conference in Los Angeles Tuesday, Bush repeated his only praise for Trump, that he’s “made some good appointments.” However, once the niceties were out of the way, “low energy Jeb” schooled the new president on some basic facts, the Palm Beach Post reported.

“We have one in many places — I don’t know if you’ve been there,” Bush said about Trump’s border wall. “There is a wall.”

This week, Republicans announced a budget deal that would fund the government through September. Missing from the budget was the funding for the “big, beautiful wall” Trump promised he’d begin building on “day one” of his presidency.

Bush also would like to see Trump stop tweeting.

“Someone oughta grab the damn phone and stop allowing him to create this uncertainty,” Bush suggested.

In March, Bush emerged for the first time since the election and trashed Trump for lying.

“He should stop saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand,” Bush said in an interview. “He hasn’t shifted to being president in the way that people are used to, and I think that’s the problem.”

The failed 2016 presidential candidate has been in talks with former New York Yankee Derek Jeter about purchasing the Marlins baseball team. However, doing so would mean he’s once again following in his little brother’s footsteps. Former President George W. Bush was a franchise owner of the Texas Rangers in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

A Texas man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend for speaking Spanish.

Local news station Fox 7 Austin reports that 46-year-old Rogelio Moreno Lara was charged this week with "continuous violence," a third-degree felony, for his alleged assault against his girlfriend, who told police that he has regularly demanded that she only speak English.

According to Fox 7 Austin, the woman told police that Lara earlier this month "got up from the living room couch and got on top of her on the bed and grabbed her head by her hair with two hands and shook her head while telling her not to speak Spanish anymore." She also said that "he pulled her hair for about 15 seconds and slapped her once."

‘This is outrageous’: Legal experts condemn Trump for demanding Sotomayor and Ginsburg recusals

Published

on

President Donald Trump Monday night called on Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse themselves from any cases involving the president, a demand critics denounced as an "outrageous" attack on the nation's highest legal body.

"Justice Sotomayor issued a reasoned dissent noting a pattern among the justices of allowing the Trump administration to ignore the appellate courts and skip to the SCOTUS to secure their desired outcome."—Kristen Clarke, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

Trump's demand came in response to Sotomayor's scathing dissent in the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision to allow the president's so-called "wealth test" for immigrants—also known as the public charge rule—to take effect in Illinois. Sotomayor accused the court's five conservative justices of favoring one litigant over all others—the Trump administration—in their ruling.

‘Paranoid cultist’ Rush Limbaugh blasted after claiming coronavirus is being ‘weaponized’ against Trump

Published

on

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh raised eyebrows this Monday when he claimed that it looks like the "coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump," adding that the ""truth" about the coronavirus is that it's the "common cold."

Limbaugh went on to slam the media for overhyping the virus in an effort to “an effort to get Trump” and even repeated a rumor that the virus originated in a Chinese biological weapons lab. While Limbaugh's initial comments were likely meant to critique what he sees as the media's bias against President Trump, others suggested he was trying to disseminate a conspiracy theory that the virus itself is a ploy to undermine Trump's presidency.
