‘I will speak out’: Mitt Romney unloads on Trump in Washington Post op-ed days before entering Senate

Published

on

Mitt Romney won’t become a U.S. senator until Thursday, but he’s already showing his willingness to stand up to President Donald Trump.

In a new Washington Post editorial, Romney, who won a Senate seat in Utah, discusses the “deep descent” the Trump presidency made in the month of December.

Romney lays out the on-again, off-again nature of his support of fellow Republican Trump, before making the case that “a presidency shapes the public character of the nation,” and that Trump is making America a worse place.

“His conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office,” Romney writes. “It is not that all of the president’s policies have been misguided… But policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency.”

“The world is also watching” Trump and America’s image abroad has been tarnished by Trump, Romney writes.

“To reassume our leadership in world politics, we must repair failings in our politics at home,” he writes. “That project begins, of course, with the highest office once again acting to inspire and unite us. It includes political parties promoting policies that strengthen us rather than promote tribalism by exploiting fear and resentment.”

Trump’s lies and deception are catching up to all of us as the stock market posts ‘worst point drop ever on record’

Published

In a muddled, dishonest, rambling news conference from the White House press briefing room, President Donald Trump for over an hour talked to reporters Wednesday evening about coronavirus in an attempt to stave off three days of market near-collapse. He lied. He twisted the truth. He displayed little grasp of basic facts. He didn’t let the experts run the show.

He instilled no confidence Wednesday night. In fact, the DOW futures dropped as Trump began speaking:

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.
