MSNBC’s Mika scorches Trump over sex assault denials: ‘What type of woman would you rape?’

Published

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski revealed the horrific meaning behind President Donald Trump’s defense against new rape claims.

Author and columnist E. Jean Carroll has accused the president of raping her more than 20 years ago after a chance meeting at a Manhattan department store, but Trump insists he couldn’t have assaulted her because she’s not his “type.”

“We’re talking about sexual assault, talking about actual rape and the president said that she’s not his type,” the “Morning Joe” co-host said. “So I guess the follow-up question is, since you have a type when it comes to rape, what’s your type, Donald Trump, and is it any of the other women who claimed that you raped them?”

“What is your type, since you have a type, that you would rape?” Brzezinski added.

MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan thanked her for describing Carroll’s claims as rape, and explained why the author’s allegations — and Trump’s denials — hit her particularly hard.

“I feel it very viscerally,” Jordan said. “What Trump is saying is this woman wasn’t even worth raping, wasn’t even worth assaulting. It’s the low regard that he holds so many women, and it’s behavior, his attitude towards women that permeates everything he does in his entire life on a daily basis his entire life.”

Supreme Court decision on Trump’s taxes handed Democratic lawmakers a powerful new weapon: law professor

Published

on

According to a law professor writing for Politico, Donald Trump earned a small victory this past week when the Supreme Court did not allow Congress to have his tax returns that prosecutors in New York will receive, but it did set a precedent for more Congressional power over the president that can be used in further conflicts.

In her column for Politico, Kimberly Wehle of the University of Baltimore School of Law, wrote that "Congress emerged with more clarity about its oversight powers, and how to enforce them, than it had before the Supreme Court weighed in," in its 7/2 decision.

Trump campaign workers ducking wearing masks over fears of mockery: ‘You get made fun of’

Published

on

According to Politico, Trump campaign officials at the re-election headquarters in Arlington, Virginia are too embarrassed to follow the president's own CDC guidelines about wearing masks and practicing physical distancing — because the president himself has done so much to politicize the coronavirus pandemic.

"The campaign’s headquarters — located on the 14th floor of an Arlington, Va., office building that shares space with multiple businesses — is normally packed with dozens of staffers, often sitting in close proximity to conduct phone calls and other urgent campaign business, said three people with knowledge of its operations," wrote Dan Diamond. "But the office was shut down for its first deep cleaning in weeks after a senior campaign official tested positive for the virus. The decision to conduct the cleaning came after two months of flouting the Trump administration’s own public health guidance: There are no face coverings or temporary barriers between desks at headquarters, and leaders have limited efforts to implement social distancing."

According to WOAI, a patient in San Antonio, Texas in their 30s has died after going to a "COVID party" — a gathering of people who intentionally expose themselves to coronavirus to see for themselves whether the virus is real.

Per Methodist Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jane Appleby, the patient's final words to the nurse were, "I think I made a mistake, I thought this was a hoax, but it’s not."

“It doesn’t discriminate and none of us are invincible,” warned Appleby. “I don’t want to be an alarmist and we’re just trying to share some real-world examples to help our community realize that this virus is very serious and can spread easily.”
