On Monday, comedian D.L. Hughley appeared on MSNBC and explained why Trump administration officials’ calls for “civility” are pretty ironic, given what President Barack Obama had to endure during his tenure.
“I think that when you have a president that is lowering the norms of civility … when you call people racist names and misogynist names and xenophobic names … everybody’s talking about Sarah Huckabee Sanders … and how uncivil that was, but I remember when the Tea Party would come to Barack Obama’s rallies and be outside armed, you know? They started carrying guns.”
“This president is racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and I think Islamophobic,” Hughley continued.
He also pointed out that government officials who facilitate separating children from their parents at the border and at times putting them in cages, should not be surprised when a backlash occurs.
Trump supporters may have been fooled by candidate Trump’s rhetoric during an election. But since assuming the presidency, Hughley argued, Trump has made his racial biases abundantly clear.
“I can understand supporting somebody and then not being sure where they’ll go. Like he’s going to change … I’m not saying that everybody who supports Donald Trump is a racist. But his supporters definitely don’t think racism is a disqualifier,” he concluded.
Ex-GOP senator hammers lawmakers quaking in their boots out of fear of Trump: ‘Why are you there?’
Appearing on CNN on Wednesday morning, retired Sen. William Cohen (R-ME) hammered members of his own party still sitting in the Senate who refuse to take on Donald Trump, saying they are failing the country and themselves by standing by in fear.
Speaking with CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto, Cohen said kowtowing to the president is nothing new, but has grown worse over the past ten years.
"Some of it has to do with external pressures, that of social media, talk radio, specific channels that have a particular view and then hammer that view home to the constituents who then pressure the members of Congress," he explained. "But you have to ask yourself: Why are you a senator? Why are you there? Are you acting out of sheer fear that if you speak up and take a position that's controversial you'll be punished?"
Nancy Pelosi blisters Trump’s latest ‘anemic’ response to Coronavirus: ‘What he’s doing is too late’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lashed out at President Donald Trump on Wednesday over his response to the Coronavirus.
While speaking to reporters at the U.S. Capitol, Pelosi slammed the president after he promised the epidemic "is going to go away."
"This is shameful," Pelosi said. "He puts forth a proposal now that is meager, anemic in terms of addressing this. Ebola, we did $5 billion. And now they're trying to take the ebola money and spend it here."
"What he's doing is late, too late, anemic," she added. "Hopefully we came make up for the loss of time but we have to have professionals in place, resources that are adequate and not use scare tactics about people coming back to our country."
