‘Bartender is not a qualification’: Hypocritical Republicans crap all over AOC’s former working-class job

Published

on

When first daughter Ivanka Trump had a rough go at the G-20 meeting, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) couldn’t help but note she isn’t quite qualified to be handling international diplomacy on behalf of the United States.

In defense of their dear leader’s daughter, President Donald Trump’s supporters lashed out at the Congresswoman, not for a nuanced conversation about diplomacy or international relations, but because AOC once had a working-class job as a bartender. Trump and his supporters have touted themselves as “real working people” fighting to fix “economic anxiety.” Yet, when faced with one of their own, they mocked the elected official for her “class” and work experience.

Ivanka Trump, who was neither appointed nor elected, was largely ignored by diplomats at the G-20 meeting. It’s unclear if the reason is due to her father or Ivanka herself, but the international community isn’t interested in U.S. leaders as they once were. Ironically, the president campaigned in 2016 on being more respected abroad. He’s now running for reelection with a campaign slogan: “Promises made, promises kept.”

Nate Silver claps back at right-wing pollster for accusing him of fraud

Published

on

One of the worst-performing national pollsters in the 2018 election cycle was Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning outfit that is consistently the only one to show President Donald Trump with a net positive approval rating. In 2018, Rasmussen showed Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot by 1 point — but Democrats won the popular vote by 8.4 points.

Nonetheless, Rasmussen is proud of its methodology and particularly irritated when polling analyst and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver points out their inaccuracy. Over the past two weeks, they have twice accused him of "fraud" and characterized his analyses as "corrupt."

Trump told Republicans he didn’t care ‘about terrorists 7,000 miles away’

Published

President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.

Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.

The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.

The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.

President Donald Trump's former special envoy to Ukraine testified about fears that Rudy Giuliani was trying to cut a "grand bargain" with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, according to a new report in Axios.

Volker reportedly testified that Bill Taylor was reluctant to take the position of acting ambassador to Ukraine after the firing of Marie Yovanovitch.

"He was just worried [Ukraine] was going to get undermined at some point,” Volker reportedly testified. “Hanging over everyone’s head in the expert community is, is there some grand bargain with Russia where we throw Ukraine under the bus?”
