President Donald Trump over the weekend criticized the Navy SEALs for failing to kill terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden “a lot sooner.”
Speaking to Fox News host Chris Wallace in a interview that aired on Sunday, Trump lashed out at retired Navy Admiral William H. McRaven as a “Hillary Clinton fan” because he has called the president “the greatest threat to democracy” in his lifetime.
“He’s a Hillary Clinton backer!” Trump snapped at Wallace.
“He was a Navy SEAL,” Wallace observed.
“It would be nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner,” Trump complained. “Wouldn’t it have been nice?”
Bin Laden was killed in 2011 during President Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House.
Watch the video below from Fox News.
Holy shit — Trump dismisses a Navy SEAL who has been critical of him as "a Hillary Clinton fan & Obama backer" & criticizes Navy SEALs for not taking out bin Laden *sooner.*
"Frankly, wouldn't it have been nice if we had gotten Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that?"

Black Republican: Cops ‘treat their dogs better than they treat us’
Black Republican political commentator Shermichael Singleton was part of a panel discussing the Phoenix police department that violently arrested the parents of a little girl who walked out of a dollar store with a doll.
The incident occurred months ago, but only now the footage is being released by police, revealing the way the family was treated.
Democratic strategist Joel Payne seemed appalled at the police in the video and the mark that likely left on the children who experienced it.
"I think about that young man talking about his child, and this is their first interaction with police," he said, noting Father's Day. "And that is the life, that's the life lesson that that child is being taught is that in that moment, that police officer was trying to hurt her and to hurt her parents. That's unacceptable."

Speaking with host Chris Wallace, the former host of "The Daily Show" singled out the Republican among all the other lawmakers who have failed to step up with renewed support.
“Have you had problems with Senator McConnell?” host Wallace asked.
“Yes,” Stewart replied. “I mean, not me personally, but in terms of getting the 9/11 bills passed, Mitch McConnell has been the white whale of this since 2010.”

Addressing the president's claim, made during an interview on ABC with host George Stephanopoulos, law professor Vance bluntly pointed out that the president is no constitutional scholar.
After watching a clip of Trump claiming unchecked power as president, Vance was asked what she thought of his claims.
