Ivanka raked over coals for statement on Charlottesville violence – one year too late

Published

on

First daughter Ivanka Trump received a rude reception Saturday night after she posted a three-tweet statement about the violence in Charlottesville — almost one year to the day after the white-nationalist “Unite the Right” rally that left one woman dead.

According to Ivanka, who also serves as a White House adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, “One year ago in Charlottesville, we witnessed an ugly display of hatred, racism, bigotry & violence.”

She added, “While Americans are blessed to live in a nation that protects liberty, freedom of speech and diversity of opinion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great country. Rather than tearing each other down with hatred, racism & violence, we can lift one another up, strengthen our communities and strive to help every American achieve his or her full potential!”

With many commenters noting her father defended “both sides” at the time, Ivanka got an earful for saying too little, too late.

Ex-FBI agent: the chaos on the House floor is ‘mission accomplished’ for Putin

Published

on

On Tuesday, an unprecedented House vote to condemn President Donald Trump's attacks on four congresswomen as racist descended into chaos. The parliamentarian ruled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's criticism of the president out of order, triggering an initial floor vote to let her speak and a failed Republican vote to strike her words from the record.

As former FBI Special Agent Asha Rangappa remarked on Twitter, the whole episode was humiliating for the United States, and presumably a proud moment for Russian President Vladimir Putin:

Trump is furious Republicans aren’t doing a better job of defending his racist tweets: report

Published

on

Donald Trump is angry at Republicans on Capitol Hill for not doing more to defend him during days of criticism about the president's racism.

"In fact, Trump has already been angered at what he sees as a weak defense by Republican members of Congress and has informed at least two lawmakers of his dissatisfaction, according to multiple sources with direct knowledge of the matter," Politico reported Tuesday. "That reaction explains the ginger response to Trump by Republicans up for reelection in difficult races, who are caught between condemning the president’s words and facing his wrath."
