Michael Moore rips apart ‘madman’ Trump’s ‘never worked for Russia’ defense: ‘His removal can’t come soon enough’

Published

on

Writing on Facebook, filmmaker Michael Moore expressed outrage that the U.S. has reached such a low-point that people are so numbed by the pronouncements of Donald Trump that they are not in a “state of panic” when he had to assure Americans he’s not working for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Following a report from the New York Times that the FBI opened a secret investigation into a sitting president because they were concerned about his loyalties, Trump denied it while also attacking the FBI.

As Moore wrote, “That this question would even have to be asked — ‘Are you working for Russia, Mr. President?’ — is the shame of Trump’s very existence.”

‘True, he is now on the run, hunted daily by the press, by Mueller, by the new House of Representatives — he is scared, defensive, constantly repeating like a madman, “THERE WAS NO COLLUSION!”— and yesterday he was forced to answer a question never asked before of an American President: Are you an agent of a hostile foreign government?” Moore explained.

Moore also criticized Trump for tweeting support from noted ultra-conservative Patrick Buchanan, who threatened, “The United States, as we have known it, will cease to exist” if Trump’s border wall is not built.

“He said that while discussing how mad he is that he is not getting his wall, and while threatening to use our military to secure our southern border,” Moore wrote. “He was also quoting from a man he once called ‘a Hitler lover’ — Pat Buchanan, who wrote an op-ed defending Trump this weekend.”

Moore then lowered the boom.

“We are probably so overdosed by now on Trump’s comments that we don’t see the utter danger on those days he’s actually trying to tell us something that he truly believes,” he charged. “In this case, in these three statements, that he hates the idea of a federal government, he despises the rule of law, and he longs for the day when he can declare himself autocrat-in-chief.”

“His removal can’t come soon enough,” Moore pronounced.

Trump encourages China to take advantage of Jay Powell and Fed: They ‘don’t have a clue’

Published

on

President Donald Trump launched a new attack against his own Federal Reserve chairman in a pair of Monday morning tweets.

The president has been publicly pressuring Fed chairman Jerome Powell to lower interest rates in hopes of staving off a recession, but the Trump appointee has so far resisted his calls.

"Producer prices in China shrank most in 3 years due to China’s big devaluation of their currency, coupled with monetary stimulus," Trump tweeted. "Federal Reserve not watching? Will Fed ever get into the game? Dollar strongest EVER! Really bad for exports. No Inflation...Highest Interest Rates..."

Internet pummels Trump for frantic demand to investigate Obama instead: ‘This is not the tweet of an innocent man’

Published

on

President Donald Trump jealously raged against Barack Obama's post-presidency business deals, which includes a production agreement with Netflix -- and other social media users ridiculed his apparent envy.

Trump questioned that deal and others in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee, and he suggested Congress look at Obama's business since he left the White House.

....work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!

Is the Trump administration squelching a whistleblower — and a major scandal?

Published

on

America's system of government has always worked on the honor system. With so few Senate-confirmed Cabinet and federal agency heads, and so many “acting” officials working in the Trump administration, people who are constantly forced to audition for permanent positions are now under tremendous pressure to protect a president hellbent on breaking every norm of good governance. Now a new possible political scandal could be brewing in the Trump administration that tests the loyalty of these “acting” officials — pitting their allegiance to the nation against their desire to impress their boss.
