Keith Boykin shuts down Ben Ferguson’s claim Trump deserves praise for treatment of freed basketball players

President Donald Trump chose to begin his day with an early-morning tirade against LaVar Ball, the father of a UCLA basketball player accused of shoplifting sunglasses in China. Trump has spent several days claiming no one would thank him for intervening. When he was thanked by the young man, he then turned to attack the father, who refused to thank Trump in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Yet, somehow conservative radio host, Ben Ferguson, thought Trump deserved praise for the treatment.

“This is what Donald Trump is going to do with his Twitter,” conservative radio host Ben Ferguson explained. “Whether you like it or not, he’s going to be blunt. He’s going to fight back… I don’t know why anyone is surprised that the president decides to tweet about things like this.”

Ferguson did admit that he wouldn’t endorse Trump’s Twitter war with Ball if it were up to him. But he then went on to say that Trump deserves credit for intervening in the matter in China.

Democratic commentator Keith Boykin railed against Trump’s knack for saying the worst possible thing at the worst possible time — particularly if it has to do with people of color. He cited the attacks on the NFL players, Trump’s flub on Charlottesville, and the administration’s sluggish response to multiple hurricanes in Puerto Rico.

“I do know that the president has a history of racism,” Boykin said.

Boykin agreed Trump acted like a president in securing the players’ release. However, he noted, “I’m not completely sure that he did for the same reason.”

Ferguson blasted Boykin’s comments, saying that “playing the race card” is getting “old.”

Watergate lawyer explains why Biden has no choice but to prosecute Trump

Published

on

The last thing that President-elect Joe Biden wants to do is be inundated by crimes committed by the previous administration. Biden is a "worker," looking forward toward a future that repairs relationships with the international community, fixes regulations, revives government agencies and, hopefully, bring public servants back to fill positions. There's just one problem, however, Donald Trump.

Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, Philip Allen Lacovara, a former counselor to the Watergate special prosecutor, explained that Biden may not have any options. It's a sentiment, Andrew Weissmann, former senior attorney to special counsel Robert Mueller, agrees must happen.

‘Black Voices for Trump’ spokesperson wants to nullify 100,000 Black votes he says were ‘tampered with’

Published

Paris Dennard, a spokesperson for Black Voices for Trump, on Tuesday suggested that someone "tampered with" the votes of Black Americans in a scheme to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

During an interview on Newsmax, Dennard said that he believes that Trump will overturn the results of the election despite a determination by the General Services Administration (GSA) that Joe Biden is the president elect.

"There's no doubt that if we are able to prove our case in court looking at the states -- Arizona, looking at Georgia, looking at places like Michigan and Pennsylvania -- where we believe that there are irregularities," Dennard opined. "If we can show fraud going forward and toss out illegally cast ballots, ballots that should not have been counted, people that are dead or are not on the roles or if there's anything -- evidence that can be provided about [Dominion Election Systems] and any discrepancies there, it can overturn the certifications in these states and, thus, giving President Trump the win through the legal votes that were cast."
