CNN panel rips Trump for an elementary explanation of ISIS: ‘Most presidents would have at least read about the region’

Published

on

On Wednesday, legal commentator Jeffrey Toobin nailed President Donald Trump over his ignorance of foreign policy and the threat of terrorism.

During a cabinet meeting, Trump went on a rant about Defense Secretary James Mattis. Trump, who dodged the draft said that he could have probably made a good general.

He also said that the U.S. should allow the Taliban and ISIS to “just fight each other.”

Toobin said, that a president of the United States should have a broader and deeper understanding of the impact of foreign policy.

“Jeffrey, do you think he would have been a good general or who knows?” Wolf said.

“It is so unbelievable. Like most presidents have read a book before they became president and know something about the history of the region or they listen to people or they read briefing papers,” Toobin said.

He added, “The idea that the whole story there is ISIS and Taliban fighting each other and let’s just leave it, is so incredible that it is really hard to know how to address it.”

George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column

Published

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.

Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.

"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.

Professor reminds Trump of his two immigrant wives: ‘Four of his five children are children of immigrants’

As President Donald Trump complains about immigrants, he should remember his own family, Fordham Professor Christina Greer explained on MSNBC on Monday.

"Mind you, he's a child of immigrants and twice married to two immigrants, right? Four of his five children are children of immigrants, but he has to use this rhetoric to make sure that he can frame all of his failures in a way that it’s never him and it’s always someone else who is taking away from the good, 'white Americans' who deserve to be here," Greer explained.

In 1977, Trump became the second husband of Ivana Zelní?ková -- who was born in Czechoslovakia. She is the mother of Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Washington Post reporter David Swerdlick told anchor Wolf Blitzer that there's nothing truly new about President Donald Trump's racist social media assaults on Democratic congresswomen of color — but that there is something uniquely horrible about the latest episode.

"People are suggesting what the president has said in the past day or two represents a new low," said Blitzer. "But when you look at the president's history ... the president claiming Barack Obama wasn't born here in the United States, his comments about Charlottesville. This clearly isn't a one-off."
