President blasted for refusing to say the term ‘white supremacist terrorism’ after latest attack by a Trump supporter

Published

President Donald Trump was slammed for refusing to use the term “white supremacist terrorism” following the attacks on Mosques in New Zealand that left fifty people dead.

CNN anchor Ana Cabrera recounted how terrorism by white nationalists is on the rise in America and around the world.

“Trump is about what helps him personally and politically he needs white supremacists,” SiriusXM host Dean Obeidallah explained. “It’s worse than him not condemning it, he has ginned it up in this country.”

Cabrera asked CNN national correspondent Sara Sidner what white nationalists hear in Trump’s words.

“It’s pretty clear — what they hear is support,” Sidner noted.

“Even though, every now and then, the president will condemn the actions of white nationalists, neo-Nazis, white supremacists — there’s always a hesitation there when he talked about both sides during the Charlottesville argument,” she explained. “People saw that as, look, we know he can’t overtly support us, but we feel supported by the things he says, the people he retweets, the word choice he uses that are similar or the same as white nationalists say and the way they put things and talking white genocide.”

“White nationalists, neo-Nazis, KK members are all looking for signs,” she continued. “They know that being overt about it, you will get condemned. Being covert about it and trying to send signals, that’s how they feel, they have been sent a signal from the president who talks in terms of invaders when talking inference and immigration.”

“He used the word invaders. What we see in this so-called manifesto, 67 times the word invade or invaders or invasion was used,” she noted. “You can see the words used. People are reacting to what the president of the United States is saying.”

Obeidallah had a simple suggestion for the president.

“I would like him to say, ‘I stand with Muslims and I despise white supremacist terrorism,'” he suggested.

“During his campaign, he said we must say radical Islamic terrorism, because if you don’t say it, you can’t solve it,” he noted. “He has not said the words white supremacist terrorism.”

“Donald Trump watches the news all day. If he’s watching, I hope he has the courage to tweet, ‘I denounce white supremacist terrorism,'” he continued.

“But he won’t,” Obeidallah predicted.

Internet slams ‘disgusting’ Donald Trump Jr. after he skates for killing endangered Mongolian sheep

Published

on

According to new reports, Donald Trump Jr. illegally shot and killed an endangered argali sheep on a taxpayer-funded hunting trip in Western Mongolia in August — and the Mongolian government retroactively gave him a permit rather than tread on the toes of the U.S. government.

The report was met with outrage on social media, with commenters blasting Trump Jr.'s bloodthirst for endangered animals and the wealth and privilege that allowed him to kill them with no accountability. Some even compared it to the right-wing outrage about Hunter Biden being given a free position on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

‘This is a lie’: Lisa Page pummels Trump for telling blatant falsehoods about her at crazed rally

Published

on

Former FBI attorney Lisa Page on Wednesday called out President Donald Trump for once again lying about her at one of his political rallies.

On Tuesday night, Trump told supporters in Pennsylvania that Page supposedly had to file a restraining order against former FBI agent Peter Strzok, with whom she'd had a relationship during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump hedged his claim by telling his supporters, "That's what I heard, I don't know if it's true."

Page, however, took to Twitter to shred the president for repeating a blatant falsehood.

"This is a lie," she wrote. "Nothing like this ever happened. I wish we had a president who knew how to act like one."

Trump busted for lying about NATO in days-late response to world leaders mocking him

Published

on

President Donald Trump responded to a week-old tweet from a Fox Business personality about Canada's prime minister and other world leaders mocking him, and spouted misleading claims about NATO allies.

The president falsely claimed in his response to Charles Payne that Justin Trudeau, along with French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Boris Johnson, were actually angry and not laughing about his bizarre news conference at the NATO summit.

"They were just upset that I demanded they pay their fair share for NATO," Trump claimed, four days after Payne's tweet. "Their countries are delinquent. I raised $530 Billion more from NATO countries! Thank you Charles."
