Longtime Republican official resigns from the party with a devastating rebuke of Trump’s enablers

Published

on

Michael J. London, a former member of the Trumbull Republican town committee in Connecticut, detailed in an opinion article multiple reasons why he left the Republican Party.

In August, London resigned from the Republican Party and registered as an unaffiliated voter. He described the act as something he “never thought he would do.”

London blamed President Donald Trump for the downfall of the GOP.  He claimed that President Trump has transformed the party “into a lame, extreme right-wing group of people unwilling or unable to see the truth.”

“Trump is simply the worst president our country has had — ever. He is encouraging increased pollution and disavowing the need to halt climate change,” London wrote.

“He is taking credit for a strong economy when it was the previous president (like him or not) who set the current strong economy in motion,” he said.” He has separated immigrant mothers and children. He has, more likely than not, supported (or participated in) collusion with an enemy.”

He noted that Trump has embarrassed America on the global stage. “He is almost dictatorial and he has severely hurt our standing in the international community. People around the globe are laughing at us. His patriotism is really egotism,” he said.

He said that overall Trump does not even represent what it means to be a Republican.

“I can’t take it anymore. Trump does not represent true Republican values. He does not represent my values. I am leaving the Republican Party and, for the time being, will remain unaffiliated,” London concluded.

‘The wheels are coming off’: MSNBC panel says Trump told his chief of staff to ‘walk the plank’

Published

Two MSNBC anchors discussed Thursday's whirlwind day of breaking news in scandals involving President Donald Trump.

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" joined Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour" to discuss Trump holding the G7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course and the White House acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, confessing that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine -- before attempting to walk back his confession.

"Did things change today, do you think?" Williams asked.

"I do feel like the wheels are coming off," Maddow said.

"For the Energy Secretary [Rick Perry] to resign, you've had two cabinet secretaries resign during the impeachment proceedings already, one of whom, the current one resigning tonight, the Energy Secretary, does appear to be involved in the scheme, at least on a couple of different levels. We have got the White House Chief of Staff who was sent out today, not only to make the, 'Yes, it was quid pro quo. Yes, we did it. What are you going to make of it?' article -- which was bracing, but then to take it back, simultaneously announcing this self-dealing, which is something more blatant than we’ve ever seen from any president in U.S. history," she explained.

Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech

Published

on

President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.

Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.

"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."

In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.

He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.

"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
