‘Lying, cheating and stealing his whole life’: Professor says Trump’s ‘manipulative’ streak is what is landing him in trouble

Published

on

President Donald Trump famously hails from Queens, New York — and as Fordham political science professor Christina Greer notes, news that the president was upset that his former adviser Mike Flynn turned on him proves that he still acts like it.

“Donald Trump sees the presidency and the office of the presidency as a series of friendships and relationships that he’s been able to manipulate,” Greer said. “What he doesn’t realize is this isn’t Queens anymore.”

“He has been lying, cheating and stealing his entire career, ask any New Yorker that’s ever done business with him,” Greer, whose employer is based in The Bronx, noted. “He’s no longer in that realm.”

Watch a fellow New Yorker blast the president for continuing to live in his freewheeling Manhattan mindset below, via MSNBC.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Monday's expected rally of racist gun nuts expected at the Virginia capitol is no different.

Colorblind author Tim Wise said that it's a whole different level with pro-gun activists. He noted that there was a message from the NRA that former President Barack Obama was going to take everyone's guns away. Of course, that never happened, but it was part of the narrative to scare sensible gun owners. Now, President Donald Trump is employing the same idea, saying that the rally of racists in Virginia is being spun by the president as another Democratic power-grab. Wise called it a kind of "front-lash" instead of "backlash."

Farmers refuse to cheer for Trump as he lies that he’s fighting for them to keep their land

Published

President Donald Trump appeared in Texas Sunday to speak to the Farm Bureau conference. Among the things he promised was that he was fighting for them to have their water rights and rights to control their own land usage.

As one viewer noted, there was noticeable silence when Trump mentioned land usage. It could be due to the fact that Trump is suing in court to take the land of farmers and ranches so he can build his border wall. For some, the land has been in their family since the founding of the state of Texas.
