‘A bunch of BS’: Ex-RNC head decimates evangelicals who ignore Trump’s trysts in exchange for a conservative Supreme Court

Published

on

Former RNC Chair Michael Steele blasted evangelical Christians for giving President Donald Trump “a mulligan” in the hopes of him nominating additional Supreme Court justices.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, guest hosted by Peter Alexander, Steele disagreed with New York Times journalist Jeremy Peters’ contention that a court vacancy would be a “reset button” that would bind the evangelical community to the White House.

Steele spoke directly to the Christian right.

“I said have said before, for the last thirty-five years, you have condemned everybody else in this country for how they lived their lives, very publicly and in a very embarrassing way,” Steele reminded. “Here you have a man in the White House with all of this ‘ish’ coming out about him and his behavior — and you’re giving him a mulligan?”

A mulligan is essentially a do-over, a second chance that ignores the initial failure.

“I said before, repeat here again, we don’t want to hear it,” Steele declared.

“If you have this public stance that we are with the president, he gets to do a mulligan, don’t get me in a corner privately and say, you know, ‘we’re really concerned about his behavior, this is so upsetting.’ That’s a bunch of B.S.” Steele concluded. “The American people aren’t buy buying it. Enough’s enough about it.”

Nicolle Wallace, the host of Deadline: White House tweeted a similar statement on Saturday about Republicans who “whisper” off the record about Trump but won’t stand up to him publicly.

Don Trump Jr shamed for sucking up to his dad on Twitter: ‘Ivanka is still his favorite’

Published

on

President Donald Trump retweeted about a half dozen posts early Wednesday from his wife and children, but not one particularly approval-seeking tweet from his namesake son.

The president's namesake son hyped his father's promotion of the "American Dream" late Tuesday, but Trump didn't include that one among several others posted by Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Melania Trump, as well as another touting son-in-law Jared Kushner's Middle East peace plan.

"For the last 50 years our biggest net export has been The American Dream, but because of @realDonaldTrump we’ve brought that American Dream home, where it belongs," tweeted Donald Trump Jr. "He’s doing this for you, your children, and for your grandchildren. Let’s Keep America Great! #2020"

Reporting team that busted Trump’s tax secrets crumbles — thanks to ‘wrecking ball’ NYT journalist

Published

on

In October 2018, The New York Times published a landmark story on how President Donald Trump and his siblings committed large-scale tax fraud in the 1990s to maximize their inheritance.

Even for a story about Trump, who is seemingly invulnerable to financial scandal, it was hugely consequential — among other things, it led to Trump's sister resigning as a federal judge — and the reporters won a Pulitzer Prize for their efforts.

2020 Election

Joe Biden’s ‘Jim Crow moment’ was dreadful — but he may be Democrats’ best shot at beating Trump

Published

on

The Democratic Party's presidential nomination and the White House are Joe Biden's to win — unless he sabotages himself.

Last Tuesday while speaking at a fundraising speech in New York, Biden reflected on his early career in the Senate, working alongside Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi and and Sen. Herman Talmadge of Georgia, a pair of old-line segregationists:

I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me 'boy,' he always called me 'son.' Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you're the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore.
