On Monday, CNN’s Jake Tapper’s panel slammed President Donald Trump’s former aide David Urban for defending President Donald’s Trump latest effort to revoke security clearances for former law enforcement officials.
Urban tried to make it out to be not be a big deal. “I know this is a revoking of security clearances. These gentlemen have been retired for quite some time. I think it’s nice that they’re allowed to keep the clearances to be a part of the club,” Urban said.
Political analyst Kristen Powers called out Urban for not seeing the seriousness of the issue.
“The thing is that he’s not applying it equitably and only to people who have criticized him. People who I have certainly had disagreements with, and I’m sure others have and would agree pretty patriotic individuals, some served in the military, they have held positions working for Republicans and Democrats. To make it out like it’s not that big of a deal, it is a big deal when the president singles out people criticizing him who are very reputable,” she said.
The panel then hammered Urban over saying that the Trump administration shouldn’t take advice from previous president who disagree with him. “The notion that somehow the Trump administration is going to sit around and say Kumbaya with the officials of the Obama administration?” He suggested.
“That’s incredibly damaging thing to say,” Barack Obama and George Bush never spoke? What we see with Trump over and over is we’re learning a lot about our system,” Powers said.
She continued: “That the president can do this. No president ever did do this. That seems predicated on the idea to be patriotic, that you’re going to put the country before yourself and your petty little problems with other people and that you’re going to recognize people disagree with you and that you’re going to be okay with that.”

Kellyanne Conway lashes out at Democratic voters as ‘racist and sexist’ at Ohio GOP dinner
Making an appearance at a Republican Party dinner in Columbus, Ohio, Kellyanne Conway accused Democratic voters of being "racist and sexist," in a diatribe as she tried to boost the fortunes of her boss, President Donald Trump.
According to a report from Cincinnati.com, Conway attacked the leading Democratic presidential nominees before making her claim.
“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”
Betsy DeVos’ DOE threatens to cut university funding for positive portrayal of Islam
The U.S Department of Education threatened to pull federal funding from a Middle East studies course jointly run by Duke University and the University of North Carolina because it portrays Islam too positively.
The DOE ordered the universities to change their program or lose its federal grant money. In a letter to UNC, the department criticized the program, arguing that topics like Iranian art and film have “little or no relevance” to the Middle East studies program. The letter also argues that the program “appears to lack balance” because its programs are not focused on the discrimination faced by “religious minorities in the Middle East," including Christians and Jews.
