On Monday, Republican strategist Rick Santorum railed against President Donald Trump after he went off on a Twitter storm over the weekend.
Trump disgracefully tweeted insults about the late Senator John McCain.
“Senator Santorum, if someone’s dad or uncle sent out 29 tweets or re-tweets in one day, wouldn’t their family be a little concerned or have a Twittervention?” Cooper asked.
“There’s nothing I’m going to do to defend the president in this,” Santorum said. “I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it, he gets in the way. A CNN poll shows that 71 percent of the people think that the economy is on the right track and things are going well. He’s doing a good job in many respects as president and then he does this.”
He added. “This diverts attention away from the job he’s doing and some of the things that are positive and just likes to focus on things that negative to him. And it’s all personal.”
“Do you think there’s a strategy there, or it is just personal and he’s just getting it out?” Cooper asked.
“Maybe this is his therapy,” Santorum said. “I don’t know how he does it. I’m not familiar with the internal workings of Donald Trump’s schedule, but my guess is this is his time just to sort of let it all out. And he sees Twitter as his outlet to do that. I wish he wouldn’t do it. I wish he would write to them and send e-mails to a therapist, as opposed to sending tweets to the general public.”
Black Republican: Cops ‘treat their dogs better than they treat us’
Black Republican political commentator Shermichael Singleton was part of a panel discussing the Phoenix police department that violently arrested the parents of a little girl who walked out of a dollar store with a doll.
The incident occurred months ago, but only now the footage is being released by police, revealing the way the family was treated.
Democratic strategist Joel Payne seemed appalled at the police in the video and the mark that likely left on the children who experienced it.
"I think about that young man talking about his child, and this is their first interaction with police," he said, noting Father's Day. "And that is the life, that's the life lesson that that child is being taught is that in that moment, that police officer was trying to hurt her and to hurt her parents. That's unacceptable."
US attacks Russia’s power grid — but Trump was kept in the dark about it
The New York Times is reporting that the United States is cyber attacking Russia's electric power grid and other targets—and that President Donald Trump is being kept out of the loop.
"The American strategy has shifted more toward offense, officials say, with the placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before."
Trump has not been briefed on the operation because of “the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials.”
Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.
Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.
A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK
