Democratic Congressman rips Trump as a ‘man-baby’ for retaliating against Nancy Pelosi

Published

on

Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI) called Trump’s letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) nothing more than a fit from a “man-baby” who doesn’t want to work hard and fix problems.

During an MSNBC appearance, the Congressman called Trump’s accusations “ridiculous.” He noted he was “just in a meeting” with Pelosi, and she indicated everyone would have to stay in Washington to do what they can to end the shutdown.

The White House is passing Trump’s angry letter off as a “good faith effort” at negotiation. Kildee said this is obviously not the case.

“It is ridiculous,” he said. “We are ready to take up any legislation that the president may sign or any legislation with sufficient votes to pass it without the president’s signature. This is the president essentially being a man-baby all over again.”

As part of a conversation about the classified codel to Afghanistan, Kildee said he didn’t know anything about it.

“I will tell you this: [Pelosi] is a woman who’ll take all responsibilities extraordinary,” he said. “He works hard — she works harder than anybody here on the globe. President Trump should take a lesson from her. If he worked that hard, he would not have and we would not have a problem.”

"Meet the Press Daily" anchor Katy Tur interviewed former Southern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah, who is a distinguished fellow in criminal justice at Pace Law School.

"So this news that the SDNY is looking into what Rudy Giuliani was doing overseas in Ukraine, explain what they’re doing. Also, very weird since Giuliani used to run the office," Tur noted.

Published

on

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is having his banking records scrutinized as part of the federal criminal investigation into his dealings in the Ukraine.

The report says that prosecutors are also looking into his work for a city mayor in the country.

Giuliani has been a central figure in Trump's apparent scheme to extort the Ukrainian president into helping him dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, holding military aid appropriated by Congress hostage until the country investigates "corruption."

Published

On Monday, TMZ reported that former police officer John Reid is suing director Ava Duvernay over her depiction of the "Reid Technique" used against the young, Black suspects known as the Central Park Five in the Netflix film "When They See Us."

Reid is claiming defamation, insisting that the film's depiction of his methods are wrong.

"You squeezed statements out of them after 42 hours of questioning and coercing, without food, bathroom breaks, withholding parental supervision," said a prosecution staffer to a detective in the movie. "The Reid Technique has been universally rejected. That's truth to you."
