Trump agrees with Putin again: ‘Democrat crazies’ using collusion as ‘an excuse for them losing the election’

Published

on

President Donald Trump again disputed Russian election meddling, and he sounded like Vladimir Putin doing it.

Trump tweeted Friday afternoon that “Democrat crazies” had lost a lawsuit related to election hacking, and agreed with Putin that the Democratic Party was using that as an excuse for their 2016 loss.

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that Trump’s campaign and former adviser Roger Stone conspired with Russia and WikiLeaks to circulate stolen DNC emails ahead of the 2016 election.

U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Huvelle found the plaintiffs — former DNC staffer Scott Comer and two party donors, Roy Cockrum and Eric Schoenberg — had not filed the suit in the proper jurisdiction, and they may refile in the proper court.

Trump has repeatedly disputed the widespread agreement by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement that the Kremlin directed the Democratic National Committee hacks to hurt Hillary Clinton’s election chances.

“They want to explain to themselves and prove to others that they had nothing to do with it, their policy was right, they have done everything well, but someone from the outside cheated them,” Putin told France’s Le Figaro. “It’s not so. They simply lost, and they must acknowledge it.”

“[The] people who lost the vote hate to acknowledge that they indeed lost because the person who won was closer to the people and had a better understanding of what people wanted,” Putin said.

WATCH: John Oliver exposes Trump’s lies about vote-by-mail — and the Fox News ‘cult’ claiming the election is already ‘rigged’

Published

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

Oliver called out Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R-MO), who outright told people not to vote if they were too afraid to vote in the local elections next week.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
