Conservative columnist crushes GOP leadership for enabling Trump and the most ‘incompetent’ administration ever

Published

on

Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin used the announcement that President Donald Trump wants the Senate to approve former “Fox & Friends” newsreader Heather Nauert as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to rip into the GOP leadership for rubber-stamping Trump’s incompetent nominees.

In a scathing column for the Washington Post, Rubin essentially told Republican leaders that enough is enough and to do their jobs.

“When Trump nominates Heather Nauert for ambassador to the United Nations — a woman who was until a year ago a Fox News personality and as a State Department spokesperson with zero experience in diplomacy — we can expect that, once more, the Republican-controlled Senate will issue its stamp of approval,” Rubin wrote.

“We shouldn’t be surprised that the least qualified president in history — with a long record of bankruptcies, refusal to pay his bills and schemes such as Trump University — should select unqualified and ethically challenged advisers and/or retain those whose ethical misdeeds and incompetence become apparent once in office,” she lectured before getting to the heart of the matter.

“However, we cannot blame Trump alone for lousy appointments and staffing the government with unfit characters,” Rubin accused. “The Constitution provides a check on the president’s ability to put shady characters in positions of power. It’s the current Republican Party that rejects that role and decides its job description is to enable Trump’s worst instincts.”

Asking, “Why is the Senate bringing and confirming candidates with questionable track records — on race or otherwise — to a vote on the floor?” Rubin stated that they need to man up and defy the president.

“If Senate Republicans started dinging just a few of the lousy nominees, the White House would get the message and be compelled to find more-qualified people,” she wrote. “Senate Republicans would do themselves a favor (diminishing the perception they are invertebrates) and Trump a favor as well if they started saying ‘no’ once in a while.”

Published

Morrissey came out for the anti-Islam political party in England, and has run into problems about his political claims ever since. As noted by Consequence of Sound, "it doesn’t help that he says thing like Halal certifiers support ISIS, of course."

He made the comments as part of an interview with his own nephew Sam Etsy Rayner, for Moz’s website.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
