Trump’s ‘shills’ know he’s guilty as they cynically try to undermine the Mueller report: Conservative professor

Published

on

On Saturday, U.S. Naval War College professor Tom Nichols, a Trump-skeptic conservative, tweeted a lengthy thread deconstructing the behavior of President Donald Trump’s loyalists in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia.

Specifically, Nichols identified their desperation to headfake the media into believing the report is exonerating, and demand a mea culpa from reporters who implied otherwise. The problem there is that the report is, in fact, not exonerating. And, suggested Nichols, many of them are doing so because they know the media in fact got the president dead to rights, and are panicking:

Trump accused by ex-Defense Secretary of putting US on ‘the trail toward a dictatorship’

Published

During an appearance on CNN on Friday morning, former Defense Secretary William Cohen - who also served in the U.S. Senate as a Republican -- denounced Donald Trump in no uncertain terms, saying his use of military personnel against anti-police brutality protesters is a sign he has set the country on the path to a dictatorship.

To emphasize his point, he later called Trump the "dictator-in-chief."

One of Maine’s biggest newspapers calls for Trump to resign on the day he visits their state

Published

on

President Donald Trump is scheduled to travel to Maine on Friday -- and when he does, he'll be greeted by one of the state's top newspapers calling for his resignation.

The Portland Press-Herald on Friday published an editorial demanding the president's resignation over his botched handling of the COVID-19 crisis and the civil unrest that arose in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd.

"You have never been a good president, but today your shortcomings are unleashing historic levels of suffering on the American people," the editors write. "Your slow response to the coronavirus pandemic has spun a manageable crisis into the worst public health emergency since 1918... And in the face of the worst civic unrest since 1968, with millions of Americans in the streets protesting systemic racism, you fan the flames."
