Rick Santorum crushes Trump over hate messages to Cindy McCain: ‘You’re going to be blamed’ if you act like this

Published

Trump supporter Rick Santorum admitted on CNN Wednesday that President Donald Trump is bringing a lot of grief upon himself by continuing to attack the late Sen. John McCain months after his death.

Reacting to the hateful messages that widow Cindy McCain has received from Trump’s supporters, Santorum said that the president shouldn’t be held responsible for the actions of some followers.

However, he did say that at the very least, the president ought to discourage such behavior among his fans, which is something that he has steadfastly refused to do.

“The president is not behaving presidential,” he said. “I know that his supporters, and I’m one of them, say, you know, he can’t be blamed for all of this hostility and notes to Cindy McCain. And that’s right, that kind of activity happens all the time! But you’re going to be blamed if you act the way the president does.”

Santorum said that it was “legitimate” to criticize Trump if he “continues these untoward, crude attacks” because “he’s going to get blamed for creating a culture that’s encouraging that.”

Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) went much farther than Santorum did and called Trump “loathsome and disrespectful” for his continued attacks on a dead political rival.

There are enough votes to impeach Trump if it comes to the floor: CNN’s April Ryan quotes congressman

Published

on

On Wednesday, the House voted 332 to 95 to table articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump brought forth by Rep. Al Green (D-TX). Democrats were divided, with 137 members agreeing to table the resolution. All 194 Republicans and independent Justin Amash also voted to do so.

But despite the resounding defeat for Green's measure, one congressman told CNN commentator and American Urban Radio Network director April Ryan that while many Democrats want to continue with investigations for the time being, he believes there would be enough votes to pass it if it actually made it to the floor.

Pelosi slaps Trump with a backhanded compliment: ‘He’s a great distractor — that’s what this is about’

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of making a racist attack on four U.S. congresswomen to distract from failures in his administration.

At a press conference, Pelosi told the reporters that lawmakers were "gentle" in condemning only Trump's tweets as "racist" in a recent vote.

"We weren't saying he is racist," she explained. "We were saying that the words that he used were racist."

"We all know the argument that could be made against us in terms of our philosophy, in terms of our priorities and the rest," Pelosi said. "And the president knows there are arguments that could be made against him and, therefore, he wants to distract from them."

‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist

Published

Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.

Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.

"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"

As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.

"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
