MSNBC’s Mika rips Jared Kushner over China event: ‘It’s hypocritical, it’s shady, it’s cashing in’

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski blasted President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, for apparently cashing in on their positions in the White House.

Journalists were barred Sunday from a public event that offered Chinese investors an opportunity to obtain U.S. immigrant visas if they contributed to a real estate development linked to Kushner’s family.

“I don’t think, you know, you should be in a job as adviser to the president when your family is just cashing in on a visa program, by the way — let alone in China,” Brzezinski said. “There’s so much wrong with this that it’s really hard to put it into words.”

Other “Morning Joe” panelists said Trump had set the tone by staying at his own properties for marketing purposes and blurring the line between his presidency and his family’s business.

“It’s hypocritical, it’s shady, it’s cashing in,” Brzezinski said.

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

Trump plays ‘small ball’ because he can’t get a big hit on anything: Democratic Congressman

Published

on

Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD) accused the president of being unable to hit a home run on any of the promises he made in 2016. Instead, he's playing "small ball."

Using a baseball metaphor, Brown explained that President Donald Trump isn't exactly the heavy hitter he wants to pretend he is.

"I think the president is playing political small-ball. He's a small-baller on the political field," said Brown in an MSNBC interview. "What I mean by that is he gets no big wins, home runs or base hits when it comes to health care and infrastructure or any other important policy matters that the American people have focused on."

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

on

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.
