‘Lie after lie after lie’: Dem lawmaker shoots down Trump’s ‘fishing expedition’ talking points on CNN

Published

on

Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) on Wednesday shot down President Donald Trump’s allegations that House Democrats are going on a “fishing expedition” with their multiple investigations into his presidency.

During a CNN interview, host Kate Bolduan asked Meeks whether there was any validity to Trump’s charges that he and his colleagues were overreaching in their broad inquiries into the president’s actions over the past two years, and Meeks said there was not given that the president continues to lie about what he has done.

“Basically, why we have to go at this in this way is, he’s continuing to lie,” Meeks said. “For example, when you talk about the security clearances, he said he had nothing to do with it. Then all the evidence comes out that he did have something to do with it. It’s lie after lie after lie from this White House.”

Bolduan then asked Meeks what he thought of Trump being resistant to handing over documents related to the process whereby son-in-law Jared Kushner was granted a security clearance.

“We’re going to do our job,” he said. “We have the responsibility of oversight. We are a separate branch of government, we want honesty and integrity for the American people and, quite frankly, for our allies around the world because he’s lied to them also. So I think that we have a responsibility and we’re going to live up to that responsibility.”

"You have Democrats fighting each other in the primary. Democrats fighting each other in the House. What do you think about the AOC versus Pelosi dynamic?" Jones asked. "How do you read that? How do you read that?"

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe has the perfect answer for Trump’s claim America can’t be criticized

Published

As President Donald Trump continued his racist targeting of four women of color in Congress, he attempted to excuse his racism by claiming it was justified as the lawmakers had criticized America.

“I can tell you this, you can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I am the president,” Trump threatened.

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe was asked about her take on patriotism during an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday evening.

"I think I’m super patriotic. I do consider myself extremely patriotic," Rapinoe said.

"I think, like, we love in America to talk about, you know, how good we are, and how like we want to save the world, and always intervening in places because they’re not doing it right. Meanwhile, at home, we’re not even doing that oftentimes for our own people," she explained.

CNN’s Republican anchor rips GOP for allowing Trump’s racism: ‘What a load of crap’

Published

on

CNN anchor S.E. Cupp on Saturday blasted the Republican Party for enabling President Donald Trump's racism.

"Welcome to 'Unfiltered,' in what might be the ugliest week of his presidency so far, Donald Trump went from dipping a toe in the pool of white nationalism to bathing in it," Cupp declared.

First, there was the racist tweetstorm he told four women of color, elected representatives no less -- to go back to their own countries. Then his followers took his cues and responded, chanting “Send her back” about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) at a rally in North Carolina," she reported.
