CNN panel goes off the rails when Republican claims ‘Red Wave’ is coming: ‘We can’t lose anywhere’

Published

A CNN panel got heated Sunday afternoon when a Republican panelist predicted a “Red Wave” based on Ted Cruz’s support among Texas Latinos.

Commentator Maria Cardona and former Trump Latino council head Steve Cortes were on Ana Cabrera’s show to debate the midterm elections.

After Cabrera aired a graphic that showed there are more independents than Republicans in California, Cortes pointed out that Ted Cruz is polling well in Texas with Latinos.

“What’s most encouraging is he’s winning the hispanic vote in Texas,” Cortes said. “That’s not just great for President Trump, that’s great news for the Republican Party as a whole. If we capture the Hispanic vote, which I think we will, we can’t lose anywhere there will be a Red Wave—we can’t lose anywhere.”

Cardona argued that Trump’s corruption was a liability as the election draws closer.

“The Republican Party is in search of its soul, because when you have a president where he is focused on a culture of corruption, where everything he’s focused on is to enrich himself and enrich his family,” she said.

Cortes replied by falsely claiming that Trump is a “self-made billionaire”—Trump inherited his wealth and would have more money today had he simply put it into index funds and played golf instead of playing businessman.

“The idea that he ran for office to enrich himself, a self-made billionaire, the idea that he needed this for his bottom line is absolutely insulting,” Cortes said as Cabrera told both she needed to cut away.

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist

Published

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
