Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson demands John McCain answer her questions — and gets buried in ridicule

Published

on

A former Trump campaign spokesperson demanded that recently-deceased Sen. John McCain answer questions about a controversial dossier — and immediately drew ridicule.

Trump surrogate Katrina Pierson tweeted Thursday evening that McCain “still refuses to answer questions about his role” in the dossier alleging a number of damning ties between Donald Trump and Russia written by former MI6 spy Christopher Steele.

The link in the tweet was from 2017 — before the senator and former presidential candidate passed away — but was nonetheless sent out on December 20, 2018.

“Who wants to tell her?” writer Dustin Giebel tweeted before joking that Pierson is “screaming at McCain’s gravestone, ‘”ANSWER ME G*DDAMNIT.'”

ABC News podcaster Matt Bevin, meanwhile, mused that the former Trump campaign aide is “in her office screaming questions at a Ouija board.”

Another user noted, in vulgar fashion, that Pierson may have messed up her Hootsuite tweet-scheduling settings — or at least hoped she had.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell suggested to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden could "damage" his campaign by holding a virtual convention speech.

Mitchell made the remark after President Donald Trump said that he was considering holding his convention speech at the White House.

"Joe Biden is not going to Milwaukee," Mitchell told Pelosi. "How much does this damage the campaign?"

Pelosi disagreed by insisting that Democrats will hold a "great convention."

Mitchell then asked about Trump's plan to hold his convention speech at the White House.

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.

"You weren't investigating a crime, were you?" Graham asked Yates.

"We were investigating a counter-intelligence threat," Yates responded.
