‘Not true’: Katy Tur – a victim of Trump’s vile words – rips claim president never advocated violence

Published

on

In a segment responding to Thrusday’s White House press briefing, MSNBC host Katy Tur bashed Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for claiming President Donald Trump “hasn’t advocated violence.”

“I wonder if she knows what she’s saying when she says some of the things she says,” Tur began. “Donald Trump has advocated violence — I saw him do it several times on the campaign trail.”

Tur herself was the target of Trump’s rhetoric on the campaign trail, when the president’s taunts against her at multiple rallies caused her to need Secret Service protection.

After giving examples of times the president advocated violence at rallies, Tur mentioned that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), a fellow GOP member, denounced Trump on Twitter for his attacks on MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski.

She then turned the mic over to White House correspondent Kristen Welker, who described the scene at the press briefing where Huckabee Sanders “dodged” questions about whether Trump’s tweets about Brzezinski “undercut” the message of unity he was pushing after Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot by a detractor a few weeks prior.

“For Sarah Huckabee Sanders to go out there and say the president hasn’t advocated violence — that is demonstrably not true” Tur continued after Welker’s “overly-diplomatic” rundown of the press briefing.

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-IL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
