CNN’s Bakari Sellers destroys Trump defender blowing off Manafort charges as ‘petty crimes’

Published

on

On Thursday, political commentator Bakari Sellers slammed President Donald Trump’s former campaign strategist David Urban during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

In light of Trump confidant Roger Stone’s trial, Sellers argued that Trump is surrounded by criminals.

“What do you think it says, though, about the president that more than just a few people he has chosen to surround himself with are known liars and felons?” Cooper asked Urban.

“It’s obviously not a great situation by any stretch of the imagination. But what Paul Manafort did is a petty crime. Wire fraud, and bank fraud. It’s things that don’t relate to the campaign at all,” Urban said.

Sellers then called him out and said that if the roles were reversed that Republicans would be up in arms about it.

“To my Republican friends, the only thing I can ask you is what happens if this was President Obama or President Clinton? You would be literally pulling your hair out on TV, calling them anything but a child of God to have all of these individuals around him which are felons,” he said.

Sellers then listed some of the felons that Trump is surrounded by.

“Roger Stone is a criminal. You have Paul Manafort who is a criminal. Rick Gates is a criminal. The list goes on and on and on. How many felons do you want around him? Six or seven? What’s enough?

Trump introduced his family at his official campaign kickoff — including ‘my late brother Fred, Jr’

Published

President Donald Trump introduced a long-deceased sibling moments after officially announcing his re-election bid during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.

"And I am profoundly thankful to my family, I have a great family. Melania, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, baron, Lara, Jared, Robert, Marianne, Elizabeth and my late brother, Fred, Jr." Trump said.

Fred, Jr. was Trump's older brother and died of a heart attack almost four decades ago, passing in 1981.

"In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Trump said he had learned by watching his brother how bad choices could drag down even those who seemed destined to rise," The New York Times reported in 2016. Seeing his brother suffering led him to avoid ever trying alcohol or cigarettes, he said."

‘Take a drink every time he says no collusion’: Social media reacts to Trump’s Orlando rally

Published

on

As President Donald Trump took the stage in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday to officially launch his 2020 campaign for re-election, numerous people all over social media expressed their thoughts on the matter.

Predictably, Trump had his fair share of online supporters cheering him on and wishing him luck defeating the evil liberals and "Floppy Joe" Biden — a new nickname Trump coined that joins the ranks of such other juvenile insults as "Sleepy Joe," "SleepyCreepy Joe," "Crazy Joe Biden," "Swampman Joe Biden," and "1 Percent Joe."

But at the same time, plenty of commentators noted some of the rally's more lacking features — as well as the president's own shortcomings as a leader and as a candidate.

I don’t feel bad for Kyle Kashuv losing Harvard: He gets a glimpse of what it’s like to be black

Published

on

Kyle Kashuv losing his admission to Harvard is the dose of reality that America needs now.

Public opinion, at least on the internet, appears to be split over Harvard’s decision to disinvite Kashuv from joining its incoming freshman class. Kashuv, 18, rose to prominence as a young conservative star after he survived the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. While many of his other classmates used the media attention to advocate for gun control, as they fought to deal with the trauma of seeing their classmates murdered, Kashuv did the opposite, becoming the high school outreach director for the conservative group Turning Point USA, lobbying for more guns in schools, and even meeting President Donald Trump.
