WATCH: Ex-RNC chair chides fellow Republicans for setting their ‘pants on fire’ over John Roberts’ Trump rebuke

Published

The former chairman of the National Republican Committee on Wednesday poked fun at fellow GOP-ers for freaking out over Chief Justice John Roberts’ rebuke of Donald Trump’s partisanship.

After Trump smeared a federal judge as being an “Obama judge,” the conservative head of the Supreme Court issued a rare public statement aimed at the president.

“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

“That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for,” the chief justice added.

Michael Steele, the former head of the RNC and a regular MSNBC contributor, noted that pro-Trump Republicans generally tend to get upset when other members of their party attempt to check or criticize the president.

“What was not talked about and what has not been talked about certainly not by the RNC or by others is the number of Republicans across the country who voted for the Democrat in this election,” Steele noted on Meet the Press. “As a check, as a rebuke, as a response to the administration.”

Those that rebuke Trump “are no less Republican, so y’all just put the fire out on your pants,” he advised.

“They are concerned Republicans because they do believe in the checks and balances of this country,” Steele concluded.

As Tracinski began, "Donald Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds is a moment that might be more important than it seems—one that is likely to have a far-reaching impact that goes well beyond what happens in Syria."

Hosting the G-7 at Doral is still worth a million dollars to Trump — even if he donates all the profits: reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump's chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said that holding the G7 summit at Trump's Doral resort would not be a profit for the president. Reports about it fly in the face of the White House claims, however.

The Miami Herald reported in July, when Trump floated the idea, that Doral is in a financial rut and the G7 meeting could help Trump climb out of it.

"Hosting foreign dignitaries has been a financial boon for Trump’s private Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago Club, providing some insight into what financial gains might be expected from hosting the G7 Summit at Trump Doral," said The Herald.
