Elderly Americans are dying angry because they did not get to read the Mueller report

Published

on

It has been 657 days since special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.

While the investigation has resulted in public criminal indictments against 34 individuals — including Trump’s campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, National Security Advisor and longtime personal attorney, Mueller has yet to publicly release a report on what he has found during his 21 month investigation.

As NPR reported Tuesday, that is leading to a situation where elderly Americans are dying before learning about the extent of Trump’s relationship with Russia and obstruction of justice.

The family of Mitchell Tendler, a World World II veteran, explained his last coherent thought before dying in the ER.

“It just was quiet for a little while and then he just sits up in bed halfway and looks at me and he goes, ‘Sh*t, I’m not going to see the Mueller report, am I?’ And that was really the last coherent thing that he said,” explained his son, Walter Tendler.

Mitchell Tendler is not alone.

“For nearly two years, those who find fault with President Trump have been hanging onto hope that Mueller will produce evidence that will be damaging to the president,” NPR explained. “These expectations are so high that there are even those who in their last years are hoping to survive just long enough to see the conclusion.”

“I know exactly how he feels. I feel the same way. I’ve been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,” Richard Armstrong, 94, told NPR. “I was hoping to live to see the outcome of what I think it should be — justice.”

NPR said, “these stories show just how much communities across America are eagerly waiting news from the special counsel — and it’s even more urgent for those Americans approaching the end of their lives.”

Republicans in Congress are angry about Trump’s latest racist comments — but not because they’re racist

Published

on

There can be no denying that amid the firestorm from President Donald Trump tweeting that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) should "go back where they came from," Republicans in Congress are upset.

However, as many of them make clear in conversation with reporters, the fact that these comments were racist is not the main reason they are angry at the president. Rather, they are frustrated that his comments are hogging the news cycle, which leaves them incapable of discussing their agenda — and of criticizing the agenda of the Democratic representatives he targeted.

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

Published

on

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.

‘He’s the one who hates our country’: Rep. Rashida Tlaib rips Trump’s ‘failed presidency’

Published

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) ripped President Donald Trump for his "failed presidency" during an interview on CNN following her press conference with the three other young women of color in Congress known as "The Squad."

"You’re a child of immigrants here to the United States," CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer noted. "I’m a child of immigrants here to the United States as well. And all of us can relate specifically to what’s going on, because I’m sure you’ve heard basically most of your life go back where you came from."

"As you point out, you are the first of two Muslim women to serve in the United States Congress. Why do you think President Trump specifically chose to paint the two of you as disloyal?" Blitzer asked.
