‘A humiliating coup de grace’: Right-wing WSJ editorial roasts Trump’s fight with London mayor

Published

on

The Wall Street Journal’s right-wing editorial page has written another blistering editorial slamming President Donald Trump’s erratic and self-destructive behavior.

In a Tuesday op-ed, the Journal’s editors excoriated the president for sending out tweets that attacked London Mayor Sadiq Khan and that undermined his own case for his proposed travel ban.

When it comes to his fight with Khan, the Journal editors were appalled that Trump would bash the London mayor less than a day after his city suffered from a deadly terrorist attack.

“World leaders who stoop to attack municipal politicians in foreign cities look small, not that we can recall a precedent,” they wrote. “If Theresa May has an opinion about Bill de Blasio she’s kept it to herself, though the Prime Minister was compelled to say Mr. Khan is ‘doing a good job. It’s wrong to say anything else.’ In a humiliating coup de grace, the mayor’s office put out a statement saying he ‘has more important things to do than respond’ to Mr. Trump’s social-media insults.”

Pivoting to Trump’s tweets in support of his ban on travel from several Muslim majority countries, the editors wrote that Trump had undermined the case that his own lawyers at the U.S. Department of Justice had meticulously constructed to help it pass the legal muster.

In conclusion, the editors said that Trump’s continued ineptitude will only scare away intelligent and qualified people from working at the White House — and leave an administration filled with “no one but his family and the Breitbart staff.”

Melania’s ‘shameful’ complicity in Trump’s agenda slammed by women activists from her home country

Published

on

Melania Trump has been known for very little in her own right. Aside from her widely-panned "Be Best" anti-cyberbullying initiative, she is mostly notable only as a staunch defender of Trump's agenda and behavior, backing him up on everything from Birtherism to abuse of migrant children.

It's a major disappointment to women's activists in her native country of Slovenia, reports The Daily Beast. Several of them were hoping that Melania would be a strong voice on the world stage in her own right, and are frustrated that she has acted as nothing more than a mouthpiece for the president.

GOP strategist delivers devastating analysis of Trump’s ‘Make America White Again’ agenda on CNN

Published

on

Republican strategist Tara Setmayer on Tuesday delivered a brutal analysis of President Donald Trump's strategy to win reelection, which she dubbed "Make America White Again."

During a panel discussion on Trump ramping up his racist attacks on four Democratic women of color, Setmayer argued that appealing solely to angry white voters was the only hope he had of winning in 2020.

"It's 'Make America White Again,' according to the president of the United States, because everyone in the country is not welcome," she said. "If you have a difference of opinion, you're not welcome."

She then went on to document all the ways Trump is uniquely unfit to judge who does and does not belong in the United States.

Trump raked over the coals by WSJ for ‘politically stupid’ racist comments debacle

Published

on

In a brutally blunt column from the conservative editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, the editors scolded Donald Trump for being "politically stupid" by wading into a dispute between factions within the Democratic Party that has blown up in his face.

Under a headline reading, "Defining Politics Down," the editorial seemed less concerned with Trump's racist attacks and more with the fact that he has made his racism front and center as the country gears up for the 2020 election.
