Trump hammered for ‘outrageous’ good-luck wish to his ‘felonious national security adviser’ by CNN’s Toobin

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin expressed disgust with Donald Trump on Thursday morning right after the president wished his former national security adviser “good luck” with his sentencing for committing a felony.

Host John Berman got the segment rolling by reading Trump’s early morning tweet aimed at Michel Flynn, who is due in court today.

Trump wrote: “Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn. Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion!”

“We just heard from the president a few hours before the sentencing of Michael Flynn pleading guilty to lying to the FBI which could get him up to six months of prison and the president is wishing him luck,” host Berman explained, before incredulously restating for emphasis, “wishing him luck.”

Asked for comment, Toobin recalled statements made by former FBI Director James Comey.

“It reminds me a little bit of what Comey said, which is, I think, Comey reminded us that we need to take seriously all the stuff the president says,” Toobin began.

“Those of us who are here every day, we somewhat become inured to the whackadoodle tweets and totally outrageous stuff,” he continued. “I thought Comey’s statement was a good reminder of how outrageous this stuff is and how much of a departure from the norms and tradition of the presidency.”

“Good luck to my felonious former national security adviser?” he scowled before grasping for words. “It’s just — well, I thought Comey gave us a good reminder of when it’s important to be outraged, which is often.”

Published

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.

At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.

"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."

"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."

‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist

Published

Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.

Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.

"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"

As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.

"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
