Published

on

President Donald Trump launched an early morning Twitter attack on the mayor of San Juan, saying she is being manipulated by the Democratic Party, and told to be “nasty” to him.

He followed that up by blaming her leadership for the slowness in repairs, while calling Puerto Rican workers lazy, saying they “want everything done for them.”

Throughout Friday, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz made multiple appeals to mainland U.S. citizens that “people are dying” in Puerto Rico, and was mildly critical of the president for not sending more help to the U.S. territory that was ravaged by a hurricane.

Later in the day, Cruz ramped up her appeal, specifically addressing Trump, saying, “We are not as second-class citizens, but as animals that can be disposed of.”

Trump, who has a history of over-reacting on Twitter to even the smallest slight, lashed out at Cruz early Saturday morning, tweeting, “The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’

Published

on

Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.

But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.

In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.

FBI officials are scared to look into Ukraine — because of what Trump did to the ones who investigated Russia: report

Published

on

According to Yahoo News, the FBI is interested in interviewing the CIA whistleblower whose complaint about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine triggered the impeachment inquiry — but at least some FBI agents are frightened of getting involved because of how the president declared partisan political war on the agents who investigated his campaign's contacts with Russia.
