Ambassador Wilson drops the F-bomb on MSNBC in epic rant about Trump being ‘dangerous for America’

Published

on

Former Ambassador Joe Wilson utilized harsh language during a MSNBC interview with Katy Tur on Friday.

It was Ambassador Wilson’s first television interview since President Donald Trump pardoned Scooter Libby.

Libby had been convicted for his role in outing undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame, who is Ambassador Wilson’s wife.

Anchor Katy Tur asked Ambassador Wilson about the future of Trump’s policy in Iraq.

“He campaigned on Iraq being a bad idea,” Tur noted. “Do you think that the advisors he has in place right now are going to change his mind on that sort of thing or he’s going to change their mind on that sort of thing?”

“I don’t think he actually has a mind,” the ambassador replied. “I think he’s basically very venal.”

“He is looking to get himself through the next day and put as many f*cking dollars — as many dollars — into his bank account as he possibly can,” Ambassador Wilson concluded. “I think this man is a danger to the United States of America.

“Ambassador Joe Wilson, thank you very much, we appreciate your time,” Tur replied. “I’m sorry for the vulgarity right here.”

“I apologize for the profanity,” he said, “but these are serious times.”

Right-wingers have a full-blown freakout over Kavanaugh revelations — and it could blow up in their faces

Published

on

Do Republicans think “men are the real victims of sexism” is a winning argument going into the 2020 election? That sounds preposterous, but there are strong indications that Donald Trump and other leading Republicans believe they can win by feeding a “victim mentality” in men, a mentality they otherwise tend to decry when detected in actual victims.

On Sunday, the New York Times published an article by the authors of a new book about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, introducing more corroborating evidence for claims that Kavanaugh had a history throughout high school and college of getting trashed and then sexually abusing his female classmates. That story, almost a year after Kavanaugh’s momentous confirmation hearings, was interesting further evidence that Kavanaugh likely perjured himself before the Senate. Ultimately, it doesn’t really change anything, since there’s little reason to believe that anyone actually believed Kavanaugh was telling the truth at the time.

WATCH: Lewandowski’s lawyer freaks out, tries to block Congress from asking any further questions

Published

on

During the House Judiciary Committee testimony of President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski about the Russia investigation, Lewandowski's attorney frantically crashed the witness table and demanded that Congress stop asking questions of his client.

"Mister Chairman, as you know I am counsel for Mr. Lewandowski—" began the attorney.

"You are not a witness and you should not be seated at that table," cut in House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) sharply.

"I understand that," said Lewandowski's attorney. "I will leave after I register a formal protest based upon the debate that I heard. These seem to be unauthorized questions and I know you choose your words carefully—"

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:
