‘Crazy’: CNN conservative shoots down Trump’s budget GOP can’t even understand

Published

on

On Monday, A CNN panel hosted by Brianna Keilar shredded President Donald Trump over his 2019 budget proposal.

“There is one number that is getting a lot of attention — 8.6 billion is what Trump is requesting for his border wall next year,” Keilar said.

Keilar said that Trump’s budget sounded like a “wish list” for “Santa Clause.”

“I think it’s pretty clear the message the president is trying to say is ‘don’t pay attention to the $7.5 trillion deficit, but pay attention to the fight I really want to have which is the wall. That’s how I will get reelected.’ That’s what he is trying to say,” Democratic strategist Karen Finney said.

Commentator Jamal Simmons ripped the budget as nothing more than “smoke and mirrors.”

“It is somewhat of a wish list. The numbers get bouncing around like crazy. He is playing with the numbers in a way that I don’t even think Republicans can understand. I think he is shooting himself in the foot.” Conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter said.

When Neil Armstrong manually guided the lunar module to a safe touchdown, he had to override the computer which had the craft landing in a field of boulders. It left the demonstration of precision automated guidance to Apollo 12.

Fifty years ago this month, Apollo 12 successfully landed within a few hundred meters of its target, 400,000 kilometers (248,500 miles) away from where it lifted off. A key figure responsible for that precision landing was an unassuming Englishman living in the Arizona desert, Ewen Whitaker. Without the aid of computers or GPS, but with patience and an exhaustive knowledge of the geography of the Moon, Whitaker pinpointed where a robotic spacecraft had landed two years earlier.

President Donald Trump's eldest son found himself caught in the middle of an alt-right takeover of a libertarian group with close ties to mainstream conservatism, and video of the encounter provided an embarrassing start to his book tour.

Attorney William Pittard said that Mulvaney would file a separate lawsuit instead in opposition to a subpoena from House Democrats.
