‘A devastating day’: Conservative writer says Comey testimony is beginning of the end for Trump

Published

Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin said Thursday that former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was a “devastating” blow to President Donald Trump and could spell the beginning of the end of his administration.

Rubin — who appeared on “Hardball” alongside GOP strategist John Brabender — said, “It’s obvious he doesn’t know what he’s doing,” with regard to Trump’s decision to hire his personal “fixer” attorney Marc Kasowitz to represent him during this investigation, which Rubin called a great way to not “look innocent.”

“Actually I thought it was a devastating day for the president,” Rubin said. “What [Comey] painted was not any one incident but a portrait of the way this guy operates, which no one on the Republican side is going to defend.”

She continued, “Now the question is just whether this was highly inappropriate, whether this was impeachable or whether this is grounds for a criminal prosecution.”

By comparison to Comey, she said, Tump “comes across like a sleazy guy trying to lean on Jimmy Stewart — the director of the FBI.”

"I know that's the White House argument," Wallace acknowledged. "There is a consistent story that came out this week and we've heard it from members of the committee, from members of the intelligence community, we've heard it from people in your own White House."

According to a report from the Washington Times, Maryland Republicans are up in arms after an AP history teacher at a local high school used a slide to illustrate similarities between Donald Trump's policies and those of the Nazis.

The report states, "A slide used in an Advanced Placement history class at Loch Raven High School in Towson shows a picture of Trump above pictures of a Nazi swastika and a flag of the Soviet Union. Two captions read 'wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall' and 'oh, THAT is why it sounds so familiar!'"

Stop praising anti-Trump evangelicals: Their embrace of authoritarianism is a big part of the problem

Published

on

At this critical moment for American democracy our media landscape is doing a poor job in its coverage of conservative white evangelicals. Coverage of this relatively large segment of the population is characterized by, on the one hand, effusive praise for the slightest milquetoast criticism of Donald Trump, and on the other, by a periodic parade of nearly interchangeable unfounded predictions about how evangelical youth are going to change America’s most radically right-wing demographic for the better—any day now. In the words of the great sage Bullwinkle J. Moose, “This time for sure!”
