‘Boom!’ MSNBC’s Morning Joe says Trump about to be held accountable for ‘30-40 years of possible fraud’

Published

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was finally about to be held accountable for decades of possible crimes.

The “Morning Joe” host digested news that Trump participated in efforts to buy up negative stories about him by National Enquirer publisher David Pecker and to pay off his past mistresses just ahead of the 2016 election — which amounts to felony crimes.

“Boom!” Scarborough said. “A lot of good information right there from Fox News. First of all, Judge (Andrew) Nepolitano lays it out clearly and perfectly. If you make a clerical error, that’s fine. You’ll pay a fine, everybody does it. But if there’s a conspiracy to hide a campaign contribution, as David Pecker and his attorney and the judge and the prosecution said yesterday there was, that’s when it becomes a felony.”

Scarborough said the president had legal exposure in so many investigations — the special counsel probe of his campaign ties to Russia, alleged campaign finance violations and a variety of complaints against the Trump Organization — that he simply could not possibly beat every allegation against him.

“You look at all of the legal challenges he has facing him,” Scarborough said, “and then you look at his legal team or his lack of a legal team, my god — it would take a strong law firm of 500 lawyers in private practice to do the legal cleanup work and defense work on the 30, 40 years of possible fraud that Donald Trump has committed in his organizations over the past four decades, and he remains legally unarmed.”

Donald Trump: ‘My life has always been a fight’

Published

on

The full interview with President Donald Trump finally aired on ABC Sunday, revealing the shocking way that he views his life.

Trump lamented that he's had such a hard life, as the son of multi-millionaires who paid to get him out of trouble multiple times.

"You're a fighter. You, you, it feels like you're in a constant kind of churn--" host George Stephanopoulos began.

"Yeah, uh, my life has always been a fight," Trump said. "And I enjoy that I guess, I don't know if I enjoy it or not, I guess -- sometimes I have false fights like the Russian witch hunt. That's a false fight. That's a made-up, uh, hoax. And I had to fight that."

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

Pete Buttigieg says ‘statistically’ we’ve already had a gay president — meet President James Buchanan

Published

on

In an interview with Axios, Mayor Pete Buttigieg said that "statistically" it makes sense that out of the 45 presidents in American history, one of them was LGBT. Statistics aside, the reality is that former President James Buchanan has prompted historians to question.

The moment came when the Axios HBO show questioned what the young mayor would do when he's attacked for being "too gay."

"Republicans claimed that John Kerry was a traitor in Vietnam. That Barack Obama was a Muslim. If you were to win the nomination, they'll say you're too young, too liberal, too gay to be commander-in-chief. You are young. You are a liberal. You are gay. How will you respond?" asked Mike Allen.
