Trump-loving media figure accused of making sexual comments to teen girls encourages Trump to shoot migrants

Michael Moates with Sean Hannity

Michael Moates, a Trump-loving conservative media figure who has been accused by multiple underage girls of making inappropriate sexual comments, encouraged President Donald Trump on Monday to shoot any migrants approaching the United States border.

Responding to a President Trump tweet about the caravan of Central American migrants constituting a “National Emergy” (sic), Moates wrote a three-word reply that simply said, “Shoot on site.”

Moates’ recommendation to shoot the immigrants “on site” is actually a malapropism, as the correct term for shooting someone when you first see them is “on sight.”

Moates subsequently deleted the tweet — but not, he says, because he realized that it’s wrong to advocate gunning down women and children seeking asylum in the United States.

“Let me clarify that his tweet was in the context of Donald Trump addressing illegal aliens coming into this country without permission and I also want to go as far as to say the only reason the tweet was deleted was because I was afraid Twitter would ban me,” he wrote in a followup tweet.

Earlier this month, a report from Right Wing Watch documented how multiple pro-life Christian teens have accused the 23-year-old Moates of making sexual comments to them and sending them “inappropriate” photos despite knowing that they were underage.

Moates has responded to the accusations by saying, “The fact that you can’t call a woman beautiful without offending them anymore is a problem.”

Morning Joe’s Mika: Thousands are dying of COVID-19 because Trump is ‘surrounded by inexperienced suck-ups’

Published

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski got right to the point on Tuesday morning by saying people are getting sick and dying in the U.S. because Donald Trump is surrounded by a collection of "suck-ups" who won't tell him the brutal truth about what is happening in the country.

As part of a "Morning Joe" panel discussion on the failings of the Trump administration to head off of the COVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging the country -- despite ample warnings it was on the way -- Brzezinski, as well as co-host Willie Geist, levied some hard accusations against the president and his team.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika reveal why Trump likely ignored startlingly accurate COVID-19 memos

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski rebuked President Donald Trump for apparently ignoring startlingly accurate warnings from trade adviser Peter Navarro about the coronavirus pandemic.

Navarro's memos were circulated at the highest levels of government in January and February, but the president downplayed the virus until early March, when statewide lockdowns started wrecking the U.S. economy.

"In one worst-case scenario cited in the memo, Navarro warned that more than half a million Americans could die, and, yet, weeks after that, you had Donald Trump at rallies saying that in April when it warms up, this will miraculously go away," Scarborough said. "Put this in context with, I suppose you could say with 9/11, the memos warning of al-Qaeda attacks using airplanes, maybe missed signals FDR didn't pick up on before Pearl Harbor. I really don't know, though, what parallel there can be, because so many more people are going to die because of these missed signals."

‘One failure after another’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe busts tragic COVID-19 mistakes Trump keeps trying to deny

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough lamented the repeated failures and missed opportunities by President Donald Trump as he faced the coronavirus outbreak.

The "Morning Joe" host criticized the president for claiming it was not the federal government's job to test Americans for the virus, and instead shifted responsibility to the states and their governors.

"This is a perfect 'the buck stops here' contrast with Donald Trump, saying, 'I am not responsible,'" Scarborough said. "What we can talk about is ventilators, the national Defense Production Act. We could talk about all the ways that Donald Trump keeps trying to pass the buck, keeps trying to say, 'I'm not responsible.'"
