While campaigning for Alabama Senate runoff candidate, President Donald Trump reportedly went on a tangent in which he referred to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a “son of a b*tch.”

“‘Wouldn’t you like to see one of our NFL owners, when somebody disrespects the flag, say, ‘Get that son of a b*tch off the field,'” Trump reportedly said at the rally. Kaepernick is not currently employed by any NFL football teams, as he was not drafted after his controversial bended-knee protests during the National Anthem last year.

Immediately, Twitter took Trump to task over his language and behavior.

“When was the last time a sitting President said ‘son of a b*tch on purpose at a rally?” activist-journalist Shaun King tweeted. “Has that ever happened?”

“Trump used harsher language to describe Kaepernick than he used for the Neo-Nazi who killed Heather Heyer,” another user tweeted in response.

On Tuesday, the Lincoln Project issued a press release announcing a massive ad buy on the Stars & Stripes and Military Times network of publications, aiming ads at servicemembers and veterans to remind them of President Donald Trump's lack of respect for the troops.

“It’s a complete disgrace that a Commander-in-Chief who dodged serving in Vietnam and denigrated POW's publicly has the audacity to disrespect the millions of brave men and women who volunteered for military service,” said Lincoln Project veteran's affairs adviser Fred Wellman. “President Trump has allowed Russia to put bounties on the heads of our brave service members and sought favor with our enemies. The Lincoln Project is taking this message directly to the military community so that every service member, veteran, and their families know the truth about Donald Trump’s betrayal of America’s troops.”

Romney shredded for letting Trump have another justice after he voted to remove Trump from office just months ago

Published

on

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced that he will vote to support President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee despite Americans already casting ballots to replace him. It's something that many found remarkable because Romney just voted earlier this year to remove Trump from office, but he now he believes it is appropriate for another judge to be fast-tracked through the senate.

While Romney does have a history of loving conservative judges, he doesn't have a good history with Trump as he's been one of few Republicans to hold Trump accountable for moral and ethical failings. However, like Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), Romney has refused to do anything about his "concerns."

Whatever happens on Election Day 2020 — whether President Donald Trump wins a second term or Vice President Joe Biden is elected president — Trump will no doubt continue to be the subject of multiple investigations. Some of those investigations are likely to come from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., who has been aggressively probing Trump’s financial history. And in an appellate brief filed on Monday, September 21, Vance stressed that his office should have access to Trump’s tax returns because reports from major publications indicate that a “criminal tax fraud” investigation is needed.
