Trump and the right wing may have just mobilized millions of women: Conservative columnist Max Boot

Published

on

Conservative columnist Max Boot warned President Donald Trump and the rest of the right-wing that they should probably be aware that their culture war could backfire for the 2020 election.

“This whole base strategy is a long pedigree going back at least to Karl Rove and the 2004 election campaign where he decided there was no need to enlarge the base of bush support,” Boot said.

The reference is to the crusade former President George W. Bush waged to outlaw LGBTQ equality. With a group of same-sex marriage bans across the country, Bush’s campaign mobilized 10 million evangelicals Christians to ensure those bills passed and supported Bush along with it.

“All you had to do was mobilize existing Bush supporters and that’s essentially what Trump did in 2016,” Boot said. “I think there’s reason to think that may not continue to work because with this move on abortion, for example, there’s a real risk the president’s supporters are going to mobilize all these women across the country to March in favor of abortion rights.”

The pro-women movement could easily place initiatives on the ballot in key swing states that are a blanket “get government out of my personal life” law and mobilize millions of Americans that way.

CNN’s Toobin unleashes hell on Trump’s ‘outrageous’ attacks on Stone jury

Published

On CNN Wednesday, chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin laid into President Donald Trump for his ongoing public attacks on the jurors who convicted his former campaign strategist and friend Roger Stone. Trump and his allies have been arguing that the verdict is invalid because the jury forewoman had a Twitter account in which she criticized the president.

"To be honest, I don't know what Judge Jackson is going to do. I don't really know how significant these statements are. So I wouldn't make a prediction about what she's going to do about the new trial situation," said Toobin. "But as for what the president said, it is so outrageous to attack jurors. I mean, these are ultimately private figures. They didn't volunteer. The judges, you know, need jurors. The legal system needs jurors. And the idea that the president would single out jurors repeatedly for criticism..."

Published

on

Appearing on CNN's " New Day," on Wednesday, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases claimed  that Donald Trump's administration is running behind on containing the coronavirus -- and that the public shouldn't expect a viable vaccine for at least a year.

Speaking with host John Berman, Dr. Anthony Fauci addressed the efforts of the Trump administration attempting to get their arms around the rapidly growing health threat before cautioning viewers not to expect an immediate fix.

"I want to ask you one more question which is one of the things the president said yesterday," host Berman stated. "We're very close to a vaccine. Now, I know this is something you know a lot about -- this is your job. How close are we to a vaccine?"
