George Conway blasts ‘Deranged Donald’ in extensive anti-Trump tweetstorm

Published

on

Although Washington, DC-based attorney George Conway and his wife, Kellyanne Fitzpatrick Conway, are both right-wing Republicans, they have radically different views where Donald Trump’s presidency is concerned. KC, a Trump adviser and long-time GOP strategist, is one of the president’s most ardent defenders, while GC is one of his most vehement critics on the right. And GC has been ramping up his anti-Trump attacks this week, even going so far as to invent a new hashtag: #DerangedDonald.

Trump, after accepting an invitation from the Queen of England this week for an official U.K. state visit, revived his accusations of British spying on him—which GC considers ridiculous. And the 55-year-old attorney, in response, complained on Twitter that the spying accusations were being underreported “because it gets lost beneath all of the other deranged things Deranged Donald does.”

GC used the Deranged Donald insult in other tweets as well on Thursday, brutally mocking Trump for his aversion to reading. “Deranged Donald,” GC scoffed, avoids books “unless they have lots of pictures and tell him how great he is.”

In response to a Wednesday Trump tweet in which the president reiterated his claim that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report for the Russia investigation was a total vindication of him, GC complained that Trump had “little understanding” of the Constitution. And in other tweets, GC wrote that “#DerangedDonald” suffered from a “narcissistic personality disorder” and an “antisocial personality disorder.”

Jon Stewart blasts ‘abomination’ of Rand Paul trying to ‘balance the budget on the backs of’ 9/11 responders

Published

on

On Wednesday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report," comedian and activist Jon Stewart slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for blocking unanimous consent for a bill to support health care for 9/11 first responders.

"Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling," said Stewart to anchor Bret Baier, who appeared on the show with first responder and activist John Feal.

He added that Paul's complaint, that the bill was unfunded, rings hollow given that he "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" with the GOP tax cuts for billionaires. He castigated Paul for trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community."

Republicans will never say that racism is ‘racism’ — basically because they’re racist

Published

on

Is there any expression of racism that Republicans will actually admit is racism? It's a question on a lot of progressive minds in the wake of Donald Trump demonizing female congresswomen of color with the "go back" canard that white nationalists and other assorted racists have long used to abuse anyone with heritage they dislike, whether that heritage is Jewish, Irish, Italian, African, Latin American or Muslim. Telling someone to "go back" is, in the ranks of racist statements, right up there with calling a person the N-word or some other rank slur. Yet, there still appears to be resistance among Republicans to admitting that is racism, which leads many on the left to wonder: If this doesn't count, then what could possibly count?

This explains why Trump picked a fight with the four Congresswomen of color: analysis

Published

on

On one hand, President Donald Trump almost certainly chose to mark out Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) because of his own deep-seated racism.

But there is likely another reason he is doing it, wrote Aaron Blake of the Washington Post's "The Fix" on Wednesday: because his core voters hate them as much as he does.

Blake cited a new The Economist/YouGov poll of 2016 Trump voters' opinions on several politicians. "As you peruse it, it becomes clear that the conventional wisdom about why Trump picked these targets is right: They were ripe for motivating the GOP base ... All of them are better known among Republicans than Democrats, which suggests that a steady stream of coverage in conservative media has elevated them as potential Democratic bogeywomen. Trump is tilling fertile soil. And in fact, they might already be his most effective foils."
