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.”

At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"

Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.

And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."

Ron DeSantis threw temper tantrum after Trump hired strategist he ‘exiled’ from Florida GOP: report

Published

on

On Friday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump has brought back longtime Florida Republican strategist Susie Wiles to try to save his electoral chances in the critical swing state — and that Gov. Ron DeSantis, who worked to cast her out of power in the Florida GOP, is enraged by the move.

"Trump’s decision to reinstate Susie Wiles to his campaign’s good inner circle follows months of behind-the-scenes efforts to bring her back after she was exiled at the demand of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who had her cast out of the president’s good graces in September," reported Gary Fineout and Marc Caputo, and it "comes as polls show Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden in Trump's adopted home state. Trump won Florida four years ago by less than 113,000 votes and a loss in the battleground would likely doom his reelection effort."

Mike Pence raised eyebrows on Friday when he sent a campaign message referring to President Donald Trump as "my father."

"We need you right now," Pence wrote in a campaign ad. "It's going to take EVERY Patriot stepping up if we want to CRUSH Sleepy Joe's dreams of turning America into a BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALIST Nation."

"I convinced my father to give you another chance, which is why he's decided to EXTEND your PERSONAL 500%-MATCH OFFER FOR 1 MORE HOUR," Pence wrote.

NBC News reporter Brandy Zadrozny posted a screengrab of the advertisement.

Zadrozny also offered a theory that language could've have resulted from a copy and paste error with language from an ad that was meant to come from one of Trump's children.
