Trump made House Republicans look like complete fools

Published

on

House and Senate Republicans have maintained that the most crucial thing in the special counsel’s investigation is transparency for them and the public. Now, suddenly, things have changed, leaving them in an awkward predicament.

President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans repeated over and over that the full report from Robert Mueller would be available. They all promised that Mueller should and would testify to the House and Senate. They even promised Attorney General Bill Barr would answer questions before the House and Senate, but he fell short of the commitment.

Sunday, Trump tweeted that he didn’t want Mueller to testify before the House or Senate, a new kink in the president’s lists of promises made and promises kept.

It put the president into a self-imposed exile on an island away from his party. Republicans in the House demanded in April that Mueller testify “immediately.”

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) demanded Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) call Mueller to testify immediately.

“If you see both transparency and for the American public to learn the full contours of the Special Counsel’s (sic) investigation, public testimony from Special Counsel Mueller himself is undoubtedly the best way to accomplish this goal,” he said in a statement.

It’s putting Republicans in an awkward position to contrast with the leader of their party.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Published

on

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
