Ohio Dem shreds Trump’s ‘insane’ manufacturing plans: ‘He wants to get back to the horse and buggy’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) ripped into Donald TRump’s economic policies saying that they are devastating his constituents who work in the manufacturing sector in northeast Ohio.

Addressing the recently announced auto plant closures, Ryan complained to MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski that Trump’s tariffs and erratic intrusions while trying to figure out how to handle the U.S. economy are “insane.”

“Let me just say it’s brutal for a community like ours,” the Ohio Democrat explained. “We lost, you know, tens of thousands of steel jobs and now we’re losing General Motors. We used to be able to say, at least we have General Motors — now we’re losing that.”

“You’ve got to keep northeast Ohio in mind, they play by the rules, go to their little league and churches, they do everything right,” the exasperated Ryan continued.

Saying the Trump’s economic advisers are trying to take America back to the “horse and buggy” era, Ryan slammed them for turning their backs on workers.

“Where’s the social contract between the workers and the government?” he asked. “There’s always the hammer, they’re going to lose their pensions and jobs. I mean how much longer are we going to do this to where the worker don’t matter? I hope this is a real wakeup call for us to say workers — white, brown, black, gay, straight — working-class people have got to come together because it’s becoming impossible for them to keep their noses above water.”

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
