Morning Joe reveals why Trump is suddenly encouraging foreign interference in the next election

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough bashed President Donald Trump for inviting foreign election interference — again — and called on Republicans to condemn his statements.

The president told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he would accept foreign assistance to his re-election campaign, and the “Morning Joe” host strongly disagreed that was standard practice in Washington.

“When he said all congressman do it, well, I was elected four times, was up there for quite some time, ran four campaigns, and if anybody had come from a foreign country with any information, that would send blinking red lights on and off,” Scarborough said. “You would immediately contact the FBI, not even a close call. I never once heard from a single congressman or congresswoman or U.S. senator, and I’ve known a lot over the past 25 years, that ever took information from foreign sources, nor would they.”

“The Republicans have no choice but to condemn this,” he added. “If they don’t condemn it then, of course, they are being disloyal to their country and choosing instead to be loyal to Donald Trump.”

Scarborough suggested the president needed foreign help to win re-election, because he’s not strong enough to earn a new term without cheating.

“This is Donald Trump, whose back is against the wall, he’s losing in poll after poll,” he said, “so perhaps this all is unfortunately all too predictable for this man.”

Colbert names Trump’s siege on DC the ‘Tinyman Square’ incident

Published

on

It wasn't quite Tiananmen Square, where a still-unknown number of Chinese protesters were murdered by the government in 1989, but it was the closest thing President Donald Trump managed to score this week.

After watching the footage of the military tear gas, beat and shoot at protesters so Trump could march from the presidential bunker to St. John's Church for the cameras.

"It was like Tiananmen Square," Colbert deemed. "Except, in Trump's case, Tinyman Square."

Trump claimed on "The Fox & Friends" that no one was tear-gassed, so it's unclear what was stinging people's eyes and making them cough, choke and tear up. The Park Police released a statement saying it wasn't tear gas. While the moment was captured on video from dozens of different camera angles, one protester actually grabbed a canister of Oleoresins Capiscum, or "OC," the gas that was used.

Vladimir Putin must love watching the US fall apart: columnist

Published

on

New Yorker columnist Susan Glasser made the astute observation that if Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to destabilize the United States with the election of President Donald Trump, he's clearly achieved his objective.

It was reported in March that Russian intelligence services are working to incite violence using white supremacist groups to try and sow racial chaos in the United States ahead of the November election.

Conservative columnist links all Republicans to the attack on Lafayette Square

Published

on

Monday afternoon, President Donald Trump decided to walk across Lafayette Square for a photo-op. To get there, however, it took an outright battle with mounted park police, police covered in body armor and rattled Secret Service members who had just rushed the president to the bunker several nights before. Armed with semi-automatic weapons and military gear, they staged a siege on Lafayette Square against unarmed hippies, woke whites and people of color, again, forced to fight for justice.

Writing for the Washington Post Wednesday, conservative columnist Max Boot attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, who accepted responsibility for demanding that demonstrators be tear-gassed, beaten and shot with rubber bullets. Like Bull Conor ordering fire hoses on students marching in Birmingham, Alabama, Barr's attack on Lafayette Square for a photo-op proved he is willing to do what it takes to stroke the fractured ego of a president forced to cower in a bunker.
