Trump apologist threatens European counties over Iran deal: ‘You should be joining us in this crusade’

Published

on

Former Lt. Governor of South Carolina and unofficial apologist for President Donald Trump Andre Bauer called the U.S. violation of the Iran nuclear deal part of a “crusade” and encouraged other countries to get on board.

During a Sunday discussion on CNN, the guest cautioned those European detractors chiding the president

“It’s trying to be very firm in the fact that, look, we are going to come to some solution here. If you’re not going to be part of the solution, there will be repercussions,” Bauer threatened. “We need every friend, every person we can to join us in this crusade to try to correct a long-term problem and a safety for the world. And so, I think this is a monumental thing for the president, but it’s also monumental for the safety of the world. This has monumental implications. We’ve heard the rhetoric, but we haven’t got the results that we’re starting to see a different type of action, and hopefully they’ll continue in this matter.”

French President Emmanuel Macron came to the White House to try and change Trump’s mind about the decision to violate the treaty, but to no avail. He, along with other European leaders, have said that they will continue to move forward with Iran despite the void left by the American government.

The conversation came after Trump tweeted a promise that Iran will never attack anyone in the Middle East again.

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe has the perfect answer for Trump’s claim America can’t be criticized

Published

As President Donald Trump continued his racist targeting of four women of color in Congress, he attempted to excuse his racism by claiming it was justified as the lawmakers had criticized America.

“I can tell you this, you can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I am the president,” Trump threatened.

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe was asked about her take on patriotism during an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday evening.

"I think I’m super patriotic. I do consider myself extremely patriotic," Rapinoe said.

"I think, like, we love in America to talk about, you know, how good we are, and how like we want to save the world, and always intervening in places because they’re not doing it right. Meanwhile, at home, we’re not even doing that oftentimes for our own people," she explained.

Published

on

CNN anchor S.E. Cupp on Saturday blasted the Republican Party for enabling President Donald Trump's racism.

"Welcome to 'Unfiltered,' in what might be the ugliest week of his presidency so far, Donald Trump went from dipping a toe in the pool of white nationalism to bathing in it," Cupp declared.

First, there was the racist tweetstorm he told four women of color, elected representatives no less -- to go back to their own countries. Then his followers took his cues and responded, chanting “Send her back” about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at a rally in North Carolina," she reported.
