‘An accessory to neo-Nazi domestic terror’: Olbermann indicts Trump’s too-late response to Charlottesville

Published

on

On Monday’s installment of “The Resistance,” host Keith Olbermann offered one of his most scathing critiques of President Donald Trump yet — that he is, at best, an “apologist” for neo-Nazis.

The president was “dragged in front of a microphone like a nine-year-old playground bully forced to apologize to his victim,” Olbermann said. Although he “finally said something” about the self-avowed Nazi who killed one and maimed dozens of others at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA this weekend, it was “nothing of substance.”

“He said nothing of substance about Heather Heyer,” Olbermann said, naming the counterprotester killed when Alex Fields, Jr. plowed his car through a crowd a protesters. “He said nothing about domestic terror.”

“The president of the United States has lost any moral authority he ever had to comment further on terrorism, domestic or international, at home or abroad,” he claimed.

Trump “is at best indirectly responsible for the domestic terror at Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday,” Olbermann said, “and for whatever comes next.”

He went on to claim that the president is “a sympathizer, an apologist and practically an accessory after the fact to neo-Nazi domestic terrorism.”

Watch Olbermann indict the president for terrorism and murder below.

Trump’s ‘full-on racism’ will ‘go way uglier’ as election nears: Ex-White House official

Published

on

On MSNBC Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's toxicity on race relations will only worsen in the run-up to the election in November.

"You were in charge, for a brief time, but for communications from this White House, and it does seem that Trump is going there because that's where he thinks he has to go," said host Joy Reid. "92 percent of African-Americans, not surprisingly, disapprove of Donald Trump's handling of race. But even 57 percent of white Americans disapprove of his handling of race relations. There's a lot of white marchers out there, marching for Black Lives Matter. Has he miscalculated and misread white people, at least the majority of them, in this moment?"

Trump leveled in brutal Never-Trumper Republican ad accusing him of turning US into a ‘banana republic’

Published

In an ad released by Republicans Voter Against Trump, the president was accused of turning the U.S. into a "banana republic" after he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone who was convicted of multiple felonies.

Coming just hours after the president handed Stone a get-out-of-jail-card that kept him from turning himself into jail later this month, the dissident Republican group posted their new ad to Twitter which accused Stone of "lying under to oath" to protect Trump, while also noting that Stone was looking at three years in jail.

The ad also notes that a "criminal who lies to protect Trump goes free."

‘Donald Trump is going to get indicted’ when New York gets his tax returns: David Cay Johnston

Published

on

On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," Pulitzer Prize-winning Trump biographer David Cay Johnston predicted that the Supreme Court's decision on President Donald Trump's tax returns will lead to an indictment from New York prosecutors.

"What do you think might be out there?" asked host Joy Reid.

"Well, Donald Trump has already had two income tax fraud trials by the state of New York and the city of New York," said Johnston. "They were civil fraud, not criminal fraud. The New York Times in October of 2018, in this brilliant project on Trump's taxes based on records we know came from his niece — without question, he and his siblings are major-league tax cheats."
