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.”

When CdeBaca, then a Denver City Council candidate, finally got power back and turned on her phone, she saw she had an unusually high number of missed calls and messages. Birthday wishes, she assumed.

“There was a death threat,” she said. “There were two of them within an hour. One of them said, ‘I was trained to kill commie shit like you.’”

The context: At a candidate forum on April 7, CdeBaca offered some remarks that, to many, sounded like she was advocating a Communist form of government.

Honduran military police opened fire on protesting students at a university on Monday, wounding at least five, campus and hospital officials said.

"About 40 military police entered the university campus without authorization," Armando Sarmiento, director of institutional development at the Tegucigalpa-based university, told AFP.

Health care price transparency: Fool’s gold, or real money in your pocket?

Published

on

The news is full of stories about monumental surprise hospital bills, sky-high drug prices and patients going bankrupt. The government’s approach to addressing this, via an executive order that President Trump signed June 24, 2019, is to make hospitals post their list prices online so that patients supposedly can comparison shop. But this is fool’s gold – information that doesn’t address the real question about why these prices are so high in the first place.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
