Trump insists Brett Kavanaugh is the real victim after rape accuser comes forward

Published

on

Donald Trump spoke to the press pool at the White House Wednesday morning, where he addressed a wide range of issues from the difficulties surrounding his embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, to the cooperation of his former campaign chair Paul Manafort with the Russia probe, to his criticism this morning of his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions.

Trump was effusive in his praise of Kavanaugh, whose nomination to the highest court has been delayed by accusations of sexual assault from Christine Ford, who claims the nominee attacked her at a party in the 1980s.

“I think he’s an extraordinary man. I think he’s a man of great intellect, as I’ve been telling you, and he had this unblemished record. This is a very tough thing for him and his family. And we want to get it over with,” Trump said.

The president also said it was “very hard for me to imagine that anything happened.”

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Monday expressed little confidence that President Donald Trump could unify the nation at a time when the United States faces a triple threat of a recession, a pandemic, and civil unrest.

During an interview on CNN, host Alisyn Camerota asked Bottoms about actions Trump could possibly take to calm nerves and bring the country together.

"What about the debate that we are told is going on in the White House, as to whether or not the president should at this moment make some sort of national statement and call for unity?" she asked. "Would you like to see that?"

Racist cops, COVID-19 and unemployment are sending black Americans into ‘despair’: Charles Blow

The multiple crises hitting the United States at the moment are hitting the black community particularly hard, and New York Times columnist Charles Blow said on Monday that it's sending people into deep despair.

While appearing on CNN, Blow said that the nationwide protests that have erupted in the wake of George Floyd's killing last week were about much more than the death of just one man.

"You add on top of that all the other conditions, which you spoke before, about this happening in the middle of a pandemic," he said. "Everybody's at home. 40 million people have filed for unemployment. They don't know where their next check is coming from... The idea that [unemployment] is disproportionately affecting black people, that COVID is disproportionately affecting black people that, police brutality is disproportionately affecting black people, it's all part of the despair."

Trump’s Confederacy-loving fans accused of treason in brutal new Lincoln Project ad

Published

on

In another no-holds-barred ad from the Lincoln Project -- headed up by Republicans Rick Wilson, George Conway and Steve Schmidt -- Donald Trump is linked to the Confederacy and, by extension, treason against the United States.

The ad notes the prevalence of the Confederate flag at Trump rallies -- some even bearing his name -- and notes, "The men who followed this flag 150 years ago knew what it meant: Treason against their country. Death of the United States,” in the voiceover.

With clips showing the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, the ad goes on to ask, "What does it say that they’re all in for Trump?"
