Trump supporter crosses state line to drive ‘Build the Wall’ float past New Zealand massacre mourners

Published

A Trump supporter drove from Michigan to Ohio to drive his homemade “Build the Wall” float past a New Zealand mosque massacre vigil.

WOIO reported that an interfaith vigil at Cleveland City Hall was interrupted Friday when Michigan resident Robert Cortis drove by in his “Trump Unity Bridge” float blaring music. He then took a lap back around and played “God Bless America.”

Cortis told the news station that he’d been visiting the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame when he drove by the vigil.

According to the report, the religious speakers who were on stage when the Michigan man drove by with the float stayed on script as “mourners looked on in disbelief.”

Cortis has made many appearances with his “Unity Bridge” and other pro-Trump auto accouterments since Donald Trump was on the campaign trail.

In September 2016, PR professional Brent Snavely tweeted a photo of Cortis’ “Trumpmobile,” which he claimed took 25 hours to build.

In an October 2018 interview, Cortis claimed he wanted to “unite people on positive messages and make America a better place.” He also said he intended to travel to all 50 states with the float.

In an August 2018 Facebook post, a user shared a photo of Cortis and Donald Trump, Jr. standing on the float at the headquarters of the La Quinta, California Republican Party.

Published

on

President Donald Trump isn't exactly known for being calm or measured, but that's what his White House is claiming he was during a meeting with Democratic and Republican leaders.

"[email protected] was measured & decisive today. @SpeakerPelosi walking out was baffling but not surprising w NO intention of participating in a mtg on nat’l security. Dem “leadership” chose to storm out & whine to cameras, everyone else stayed to work on behalf of our country," tweeted Stephanie Grisham.

It prompted CNN's Chris Cillizza to inquire when Trump ever struck someone as "measured."

Republicans lack the ‘moxie’ to defend America’s Kurdish allies in Syria: Ex-RNC Chair

Published

on

Republicans will criticize President Donald Trump on foreign policy, but lack the nerve to do anything meaningful to protect America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria, the former chair of the Republican Party explained on MSNBC on Wednesday.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd interviewed Steele about what it would take for Republicans to serve as a check on the president.

"I think the only way to make him change his mind is -- he’s got to think they might walk," Todd said.

"Well, that would require a level of moxie that we haven’t seen from the leadership," Steele replied.

"On the foreign policy space, I think that’s the one area where we’ve seen people actually start to push back rhetorically," he noted. "But I don’t know if internally they’ve really sat down with the president and go, 'This is how damaging this is, this is how troublesome it is, and this is the problem you’re having inside the caucus.' I just don’t — at least from the folks I’ve talked to, I haven’t gotten the sense they’ve gone there yet."
