‘It’s not unreasonable to want a parade’: Trump surrogate praises military parade in rant about Trump Derangement Syndrome

Published

on

An advisor for the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and commentator for The One America News Network suggested that criticizing Donald Trump’s plan for a military parade was akin to comparing him to Adolph Hitler.

“You have to look at why he’s doing this, this has nothing to do with President Trump himself,” Trump supporter Stephanie Hamill claimed. “He’s doing this to showcase the military men and women of this country and the hard work that they do.”

“It’s not unreasonable to want to have a parade,” Hamill added.

“These are warplanes, they drop bombs, but you have to respect the military because these are the men and women who are keeping us safe every single day, and I made phone calls to some friends who are retired and active military men and women and they told me they loved it and it’s about time,” Hamill claimed.

In January, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid pulled the plug on Hamill after she suggested that the Clinton Foundation had committed murder.

“I don’t know you, Stephanie, but let me explain this to you: this is not Fox News and we are not going to play the game of rolling out crazy conspiracy theories in answers to my questions and take us off track,” Reid lectured. “So I am going to put you pause for the minute, I’m going to put you to the side because they are more familiar with the way that we do things here.”

Hamill also received backlash today.

“I don’t if we had Republican Party has looked at the books, but we’re broke right now and everybody knows it,” Professor Christina Greer of NYU noted. “We are still in two wars, there are individuals in these wars that weren’t even born when they started.”

“So to have a parade in front of Trump Tower — which we know it would be — is a fundamental waste of taxpayer,” Prof. Greer concluded.

“I love the idea of a parade,” Hamill admitted.

“It’s interesting to see how people perceive this and take it in the headlines today. So if you have Trump Derangement Syndrome, then you compare Trump to Hitler or to Russia or any other evil, brutal dictators, it is absolutely absurd to compare him,” Hamill continued.

Professor Greer then explained reality to the conservative commentator.

“That’s why people are freaking out, we don’t actually need a display of our might, because we’re genuinely afraid that this man might use it for no at all,” Prof. Greer explained.

Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate

Published

on

Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.

The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.

But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.

Here are 4 winners and 9 losers from the first 2020 Democratic primary debate

Published

on

With ten candidates on stage Wednesday, the opening debate of the 2020 Democratic primary in Miami was a packed mess. And this was only the first course in a two-part event — 10 more candidates will debate on the following night.

A crowded field makes it difficult to stand out, and that means that even after a big night like a debate, the most likely result is that not much changes. But the debate was still significant, giving candidates the chance to exceed, meet, or fall below expectations for their performances.

Here's a list — necessarily subjective, of course — of the people who came out on the top when the dust was settled, and those who came out on the bottom.

Here are 3 ways Julián Castro stood out in the first Democratic Debate

Published

on

There were many predictions going into the first Democratic debate on MSNBC, but no one predicted that Julián Castro would break out from the crowd.

Check out the top three ways Castro stood out from the crowd.

Immigration:

The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development was the outright winner of the immigration section of the debate

It should "piss us all off," Castro said about the father and his little girl who were found face-down in the shores of the Rio Grande River this week. “It’s heartbreaking."

Castro is a second generation American who got into specifics on immigration policy, calling for an outright "Marshall Plan" style of action for Guatemala and Honduras. He joined with other Democrats calling for an end to President Donald Trump's family separation policy, but he then suggested ending the "metering" of legitimate asylum seekers.
