Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, Republican strategist Rick Wilson was asked to sum up how President Donald Trump fared in his battle with the Democrats after he caved to their demand to temporarily re-open the government without getting a penny for his border wall.
According to Wilson, Trump walked away from Friday’s Rose Garden address “humiliated.”
“I think that the major loss for the president this week was that the fraud and the con of Donald Trump, that he is the master negotiator, that he’s the king of the art of the deal. that he always wins when he sits down at the bargaining table was finally shattered” Wilson began.
“This is a guy who spent– who threw our government and economy into chaos for 35 days and who insists, absolutely categorically that under no circumstances would he stop this shutdown unless he got $5.7 billion for his wall,” he continued. “He walked out of the room with nothing, he didn’t even have his pants. At the end of this negotiation, he had been humiliated and been shamed.
“He was knocked down hard he got spanked hard by Nancy Pelosi and it still hurts so much he can barely sit down,” he said at the end of his rant.
Donald Trump and the Jews: He’s exactly why most of us vote for Democrats
If President Trump doesn't understand why a large majority of American Jews are Democrats, maybe he should take a look in the mirror.
In case you need a quick refresher, Trump sparked an enormous furor on Tuesday when he said, "I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty." He added that "five years ago, the concept of even talking about this . . . of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people — I can't believe we're even having this conversation. Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they're defending these two people over the State of Israel?"
Still-free Epstein friend Ghislaine Maxwell likely cooperating with prosecutors: Vanity Fair columnist
High-powered wealth manager Jeffrey Epstein may have committed suicide — but the case looking into his alleged involvement in trafficking and raping teenage girls is far from over. One particular loose end is Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who was close friends with Epstein — and who is accused of helping to groom Epstein's victims, and who has seemingly disappeared.
As Vanity Fair contributor William Cohen told MSNBC's Alex Witt, Maxwell is likely not really on the lam at all — she may be helping prosecutors in secret, to lull Epstein's other co-conspirators into a false sense of security.
Wall Street Journal drops a truth-bomb on Trump over his market-destroying trade war: ‘Everyone loses’
In yet another blast from the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal, the editors looked back at Friday's stock market free fall and pointed the finger directly at President Donald Trump and his "trade-war general" Peter Navarro for being the main culprits.
After Friday's disastrous stock market session that took a major downturn due to the escalation of the trade war -- with China and Trump ordering billions of dollars in new tariffs -- the Journal pointed out that there will be no winners.
