MSNBC’s Morning Joe: Trump ‘has already confessed from the mountaintops’ to crimes Mueller is investigating

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump had already publicly “confessed” to wrongdoing similar to the crimes that brought down Richard Nixon.

The “Morning Joe” host disagreed with journalist Bob Woodward — who helped expose the Watergate crimes that led to Nixon’s resignation — that more and stronger evidence was needed to prove Trump had broken the law.

“This is a year into the presidency, earlier this year this occurred — (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo realizes what’s going on and says there’s a thin blue line of keeping some order in all of this,” Woodward said. “There are things when the presidencies go off the rails, we know that.”

Scarborough asked whether the Trump presidency had gone off the rails, and asked Woodward to compare the current situation to the Watergate news in 1973 and 1974.

“We’ve got to watch it,” Woodward said. “The Mueller investigation is significant, dramatic. I know from the Nixon case, you need irrefutable evidence or tapes or witnesses or documents to get full credibility.”

Scarborough said that evidence was already public.

“I’m saying the tapes are public,” Scarborough said. “He admitted obstruction of justice to (NBC News anchor) Lester Holt, he admitted obstruction to the Russian foreign minister. Richard Nixon admitted or schemed behind closed doors. Donald Trump has already confessed from the mountaintops.”

Black Georgia lawmaker accuses white man of demanding she ‘go back where she came from’ in supermarket diatribe

On Friday evening, Erica Thomas, and African-American Democratic lawmaker in the Georgia House of Representatives, was shopping at a Publix supermarket in Mableton when a white customer came up to her and shouted at her, telling her to "go back where you came from" — words echoing President Donald Trump's recent racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.

Thomas' crime? She had too many items for the express checkout line.

Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!

Published

on

US President Donald Trump offered Saturday to guarantee the bail of rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on suspicion of assault following a street brawl.

Trump tweeted that he had spoken with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who he said gave assurances that the singer would be treated fairly.

"Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative," Trump wrote.

There is no system of bail in Sweden.

Trump said he and Lofven had agreed to speak again over the next 48 hours.

Fans, fellow artists and US Congress members have campaigned for the 30-year-old artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, to be freed since his arrest on July 3 following the fight on June 30.

The best Civil War movie ever made finally gets its due

Published

on

On Sunday and on July 24, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events are presenting big-screen showings in theaters nationwide of “Glory,” in honor of the 30-year anniversary of its release. The greatest movie ever made about the American Civil War, “Glory” was the first and, with the exception of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” the only film that eschewed romanticism to reveal what the war was really about.

The story is told through the eyes of one of the first regiments of African American soldiers. Almost from the time the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., the issue of black soldiers in the Union army was hotly debated. On Jan. 1, 1863, as the country faced the third year of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, rapidly accelerating the process of putting black men into federal blue.
