Corey Lewandowski, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, on Saturday night downplayed the deadly shooting rampage inside a Texas church.
During an appearance on Fox News’ Watters’ World, Lewandowski attacked a reporter for asking Trump about gun restrictions in the days following the massacre.
“You know, when the president is overseas and he is just south of a madman, why don’t we actually talk about the things that the world cares about?” he said. “Which is containing that madman in North Korea.”
Twenty-six people were killed in Sutherland Springs when gunman Devin Patrick Kelley opened fire in the First Baptist Church on November 4.
Two days later, Trump was asked about efforts to restrict gun access during a press conference in Seoul.
Senate Dems blast ‘corrupt’ nomination of Amy Coney Barrett: ‘This entire process is illegitimate’
President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the United States Supreme Court -- and Democrats were livid.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) linked the nomination to the Affordable Care Act and the COVID-19 pandemic.
"A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions in the middle of a pandemic," Schumer wrote. "Democrats are fighting for Americans' health care."
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ripped the nomination for coming so close to the election.
Senate Republicans attempt to brand Amy Coney Barrett as the ‘Notorious ACB’
The campaign arm for Senate Republicans is raising money by attempting to brand conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett as the "Notorious A.C.B."
The scheme is an attempt appropriate Ruth Bader Ginsburg's famous nickname -- The Notorious R.B.G. -- for a jurist nothing like the late Supreme Court justice.
T-shirts with "Notorious A.C.B." are being given out for donations between $25 and $5,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
The website where the T-shirts are sold says the money will go to the "Supreme Court Defense Fund."
"Democrats will do ANYTHING to stop President Trump and Senate Republicans from filling the Supreme Court vacancy," the website argues. "Protecting our Majority has never been more important. HELP!"
Joe Biden responds to Trump picking Amy Coney Barrett for the US Supreme Court
Democratic 2020 nominee Joe Biden released a statement shortly after President Donald Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the United States Supreme Court.
"Election Day is just weeks away, and millions of Americans are already voting because the stakes in this election could not be higher. They feel the urgency of this choice – an urgency made all the more acute by what’s at stake at the U.S. Supreme Court," Biden wrote.
"They are voting because their health care hangs in the balance. They are voting because they worry about losing their right to vote or being expelled from the only country they have ever known. They are voting right now because they fear losing their collective bargaining rights. They are voting to demand that equal justice be guaranteed for all. They are voting because they don’t want Roe v. Wade, which has been the law of the land for nearly half a century, to be overturned," he explained.
