‘The the biggest con job on the face of the Earth’: Tennessee Democrat drops the mic on Trump’s entire time in office

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, blunt-speaking Tennessee Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen detailed all the ways President Donald Trump has enriched himself and his family since he was elected in 2016, calling it a “criminal enterprise run amok on the American people.”

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Cohen explained that Trump has no interest in serving the public and is only interested in cashing in for as long as he can.

He took particular aim at Trump’s involvement with the Saudis.

“In every action, he takes he’s making money for him and his family,” Cohen stated. “It’s that type of behavior which was really never a vision to be this obvious and outrageous when the founding fathers put the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution. This president has asked for no permission and he’s taken money from the Saudis in Trump Tower where they’ve got a big holding and at the Trump Hotels where they stay anytime they can. And he said publicly they have so much money, anything he had asked, they paid enormous amounts of money for his condos.”

Adding, “Trump’s interest trumps everything,” Cohen later said, “We have about 17 or 18 sponsors for the impeachment of the president and one of the basis is Emoluments Clause violations both foreign and domestic.”

“It’s about the money he makes from taking money for the government for trips to Mar-a-Lago and charging our Secret Service for golf carts and food and you name it,” he elaborated. “This is just a criminal enterprise run amok on the American people and the biggest con job on the face of the Earth.”

Gohmert’s daughter Caroline, who is also a recording artist known as BELLSAINT, said that “wearing a mask is a non-partisan issue.”

“The advice of medical experts shouldn’t be politicized,” her statement read. “My father ignored medical expertise and now he has COVID.”

“It’s not worth following a president who has no remorse for leading his followers to an early grave,” she added.

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election

Published

on

There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.

Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not. Some of the scientists even work for the American government and have updated information on the status of a vaccine.

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

on

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.
