Republican CNN pundit nails Melania Trump for acting like she is in the royal family: ‘Last time I checked we didn’t have one’

Published

CNN political commentator Amanda Carpenter took a swipe at the prima donna status of the Trump White House.

During a panel discussion Tuesday, host Jake Tapper cited a Wall Street Journal report that revealed the only people who feel secure in their jobs at the White House are related to the president.

“Last time I checked we didn’t have a royal family, but they sure like to act like it,” Carpenter said. “How hostile of a workplace is this? They treat the people who go to serve them in good faith with such hostility and slam the door on them as they go out.”

She asked what the possible purpose could be for such an action.

“I mean, I really wanted to give Melania [Trump] a fair chance, and I thought she was doing a great job as first lady, until you had that moment with the ‘I just don’t care’ jacket,” she confessed.

Democratic strategist Symone Sanders was floored by the fact that the biggest scandals for Michelle Obama were when she wore a sleeveless dress and told children to eat their vegetables.

Even the host noted he’s not clear how anyone can avoid the first lady “throwing shade on a sitting deputy national security official.”

The panel all agreed that the Trump White House has become more like “Survivor” than an episode of “The Apprentice.”

‘They offered him no humanity’: Floyd family attorney rips Minneapolis for adding ‘insult to injury’

Published

on

On Friday's edition of CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360," Ben Crump, the attorney for the family of George Floyd, expressed his outrage at how local officials are handling the case — and demanded harsher prosecution of the officers responsible.

"The family does not trust the Minneapolis Police Department or anybody affiliated with the Minneapolis Police Department, Anderson," said Crump. "Remember the first report that came out, they gave so much false information in that report, talking about George was resisting. George was threatening, saying that he died of a medical condition. Never once mentioning the fact that this officer had his knee on his neck, not just for one minute, two minutes, three minutes, four minutes, five minutes, six minutes, seven minutes but for eight minutes ... people need to understand, the last eight minutes of his life he was struggling to breathe, telling them I couldn't breathe, and they offered him no humanity."

CNN’s Jim Acosta walks through all the times Trump has ‘thrown gasoline’ on racial tension

Published

on

On CNN Friday, following President Donald Trump's abrupt exit from a press conference following a racially charged tweet, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta broke down President Donald Trump's history of stoking racial tensions during moments of crisis.

"He is trying to clean up this tweet that he posted last night," said Acosta. "First, just what the president said a few moments ago. He said the looters in Minneapolis should not be able to drown out the voice of so many peaceful protesters. That, obviously, is a very mild version of what he was trying to say or he claims he was trying to say last night when he tweeted, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." That obviously is an expression steeped in all kinds of ugliness. The Miami Police chief back in 1967, when there was unrest in that city, used that expression. George Wallace, the segregationist, used words like that in 1968."
