Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, a GOP campaign consultant raked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over the coals for whining about Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) doing his oversight job investigating Donald Trump — then knocked the rabid Trump defender for once being one of the president’s biggest critics.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Susan Del Percio called out Graham in no uncertain terms and said he should let Nadler do his constitutionally-mandated job.
“Republicans for the most part and they may not say it on television, but we know that Chairman Nadler is doing his job,” she explained. “That’s what you’re supposed to do as the chairman of the Judiciary [Committee]. They’re conducting oversight hearings, they haven’t started impeachment hearings yet or the inquiry and they are lining up testimony.”
Turning more specifically to Graham, Del Percio complained, “Now, the other thing about Lindsey Graham, I think that Lindsey Graham probably called Donald Trump more negative names during the primary season than Nadler ever did and made it personal.”
“And Donald Trump put out his [Graham’s] cell phone number and the back and forth between them at times was downright ugly, which makes it even more spectacular that Lindsey Graham has turned into the sycophant that he is,” she added.
Trump flips out and threatens ‘obliteration’ after Iran calls him retarded
President Donald Trump on Tuesday angrily hit back at Iran after the nation accused him of being "retarded."
Writing on Twitter, the president accused Iran of making a "very ignorant and insulting statement" against him, which he said "only shows that they do not understand reality."
The president then threatened the nation with "obliteration" if it didn't wise up.
"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force," he wrote. "In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"
....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!
Condo owner sends recording of monkey noises to prospective renter — and repeatedly calls her the N-word
Giulia Ozyesilpinar, the owner and operator of the Ocean Five Condo Hotel in Miami Beach, went on a racist tirade this week against a prospective renter because she didn't promptly respond to her WhatsApp messages.
The Miami New Times reports that London resident Monifah Brown had booked a condo at Ocean Five with some friends who were planning to go with her to a summer vacation in Miami.
However, after booking the condo, Ozyesilpinar sent her messages saying that she was having problems processing her credit cards. After Brown didn't initially respond to those messages, Ozyesilpinar sent her a racist message telling her that she was hurting the reputations of other black people.
‘Incoherent’ Trump blistered by ex-National Security Council member for acting as Putin’s unwitting stooge
In a ferocious column for Politico, a former member of the National Security Council who served under both President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton called out Donald Trump for what he called the president's "incomprehensible" policies when it comes to Russia.
According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.
Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.
