Trump lashing out at Kirsten Gillibrand reveals he is ‘caged animal’ gripped by fear: Dan Rather

Published

on

Legendary White House journalist and long-time CBS anchor Dan Rather explained the significance of President Donald Trump “lashing out” at Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

“Have you ever seen a caged animal pacing and baring its fangs?” Rather asked in a new Facebook post. “It is an unsettling sight as any movement or meeting of the eyes can induce a blood-curdling roar and you are left to wonder if those bars are strong enough to protect you from the wrath of nature.”

“This image has been in my mind of late as I watch what seems to be the encircling forces ensnaring President Trump,” Rather explained.

“As is his nature, Mr. Trump is lashing out – most recently at Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who called on him to resign. The President’s tweet said the Senator ‘would do anything for’ campaign donations. This is disgusting and sexist rhetoric,” Rather explained. “It is so far below the standards of human decency that no civil person should condone it, let alone normalize it.”

Trump’s polling weakness and the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller have changed the political dynamics, which has resulted in a White House filled with fear.

“But I think that what we are seeing here is fear, a deep fear of a world closing in. After all fear is what an animal in a cage really is feeling. The opposition to President Trump is emboldened. It is clear that Democrats who are positioning themselves for a run at the Oval Office in 2020 – like Senator Gillibrand – feel that their path lies through calling out Mr. Trump, especially on his sexual harassment allegations,” Rather explained. “Meanwhile Mueller keeps digging, and digging.”

Rather believes that whatever happens in the Alabama special election today, Trump will haunt the Republican Party.

“There is a showdown in Alabama tonight. It is impossible to tell what will happen. But whatever the outcome, the Republican Party has become the Party of Trump. And they will have to wear that mantle in front of the American electorate likely for years to come,” Rather concluded.

Ocasio-Cortez: Democratic refusal to impeach Trump is a ‘bigger national scandal’ than Trump’s lawbreaking

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., criticized House Democrats on Saturday for their unwillingness to impeach President Donald Trump despite new revelations that he may have pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on one of his potential Democratic rivals in 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden.

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night.

She also retweeted 2020 presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, who responded to a story about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to reevaluate her position on impeaching Trump in spite of the Ukraine story by saying, "What is Congress waiting for? This is crazy. Unless we take action now, we will see the end of American democracy."

Published

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.
