On Monday, President Donald Trump met with Evangelical Christian leaders and issued a dark warning. If Democrats prevail in the midterms, he claimed, they “will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently.” The remarks were delivered to an assembly of 100 supporters in the evangelical community, the New York Times reported.
Trump then conflated the Democrats with antifa, the loose network of left-wing militants devoted to stamping out Nazism.
“They will end everything immediately,” Trump said. “When you look at antifa and you look at some of these groups, these are violent people.”
On MSNBC Wednesday, panelists grappled with the president’s remarks.
“That’s just demagoguery by the president of the United States,” said journalist Jonathan Alter. “It’s one thing to say, I want you to hold the Congress, but when he says all democrats are antifa…”
They also pointed out that Donald Trump once offered to pay the legal bills of protestors.
“This is a guy who is rallying to his base. And the base does what Donald Trump says,” added author and Republican political consultant Noelle Nikpour.
Michael Moore breaks down why Trump is ‘scared’ of The Squad: ‘They’re the force out there!’
Legendary filmmaker Michael Moore revealed why President Donald Trump is so scared of the women of color in Congress known as The Squad.
The Squad is made up of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
"So, Michael, when your political opposition tells you this is the play we’re going to run and the president underscores it, and they’re running this play, is there any — is The Squad blameless for giving the president a steady stream of oxygen and ammunition?" MSNBC's Brian Williams asked.
"I’m so glad he’s that frightened of them, both he and [Benjamin] Netanyahu are scared of them. And the reason they are is — and this is why Trump isn’t as dumb as he comes off," Moore said.
Rick Wilsons destroys Trump for ’punitive ‘dickishness’ and ‘performative assh*lery’ on HBO’s Real Time
Republican strategist Rick Wilson slammed the Trump administration on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher on Friday.
Wilson is the author of the 2018 book Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.
The GOP consultant said America needs to replace the "Goddamn oil lobbyist who runs the f*cking EPA right now."
"This is just punitive dickishness by these people," Wilson charged. "They're just doing this to be *ssholes, they want their base to be like, 'we're taking those regulations away."
"It is just performative assh*lery," he added.
Bill Maher rips Trump’s recession — says new slogan should be ‘Make America Atlantic City Again’
The host of "Real Time" on HBO sarcastically mocked President Donald Trump for being a "financial genius" as the nation braces for a recession.
Comedian Bill Mayer began by noting that Trump "wants to buy Greenland and rename it New Ivanka" the president's "two Nurenberg rallies."
But he quickly moved to discuss the stock market turmoil.
"Trump, the financial genius, is driving the economy off a cliff," he said.
"Make America Atlantic City Again," should be his new slogan.
"Did you see what happened to the stock market this week? I spent more time gasping for breath than Jeffrey Epstein," Maher added.
