Devin Nunes’ constituent pens scathing editorial demanding ‘Trump’s errand boy’ lawmaker resign — now

Published

on

While Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) appears to have a safe seat in his conservative district, one local voter has had enough of the controversial congressman carrying water for President Donald Trump’s attempts to derail special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign.

In a blistering letter to the editor, that the Fresno Bee published under, “In this writer’s opinion, Rep. Devin Nunes should resign,” local Patrick MacMillan tore into his congressional representative, comparing him to the late disgraced red-baiting Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) with a memorable quote delivered by attorney Joseph Welch during the Army–McCarthy hearings in 1954.

“Devin Nunes should resign,” MacMillan bluntly began.

“President Trump’s chief errand boy should leave his post as Representative of California 22. Our history demonstrates several instances of the renegade politics Nunes espouses,” he continued. “I am reminded of a famous line uttered to one Joe McCarthy many decades ago, ‘Have you no sense of decency, sir?’ Nunes’ loyalty to Donald Trump is shameful.”

“I see patients every day that need Mr. Nunes to fight for their health care. Instead Mr. Nunes is attempting to undermine the rule of law in this country. Mr. Nunes would rather serve a carnival con man whose ignorance and corruption surpasses the Harding Administration and Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920s,” he continued. “Of course, the Nixon administration is our best example of political lies and deceit. I hope many in CA District 22 share my contempt for Mr. Nunes, and show up at the polls in November to kick him out of Washington D.C.”

“Mr. Nunes is the swamp” he added. “He epitomizes everything that Americans dislike about our government and its corrupted ways. Mr. Nunes’ assault on the FBI exposes his political motivations to aid and abet the worst political criminal in our nation’s history, Donald Trump. Mr. Nunes, please resign.”

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
