MSNBC’s Mika says ‘bone-headed’ birther Mark Meadows still owes Rashida Tlaib — and Obama — an apology

Published

on

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski called on Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) to publicly apologize to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and former President Barack Obama for his racist remarks.

The “Morning Joe” co-host was disgusted that Meadows brought out a black woman to excuse President Donald Trump’s racism, and then forced an apology from Tlaib after she and other Democratic lawmakers called him out during a House Oversight Committee hearing.

“That apology should never have happened,” Brzezinski said. “I’m personally waiting for the apology by Mark Meadows. I’m waiting for him to say, if I appeared to be racist, I did not mean to be, if I was bone-headed by bringing out a black woman and saying, hey, President Trump is friends with her, I have black friends. If I was bone-headed not knowing that that is the lamest excuse to cover up racism.”

She and host Joe Scarborough said Meadows had never fully accounted for his repeated “birther” claims about Obama, and Brzezinski hoped Tlaib hugging the GOP lawmaker on the House floor did not mean she’d let him off the hook.

“She can hug him put this behind her,” Brzezinski said, “but she can also look at him straight in the eye and say, ‘I’m still waiting for your apology.'”

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
