Trump screams ‘BORING!’ on Twitter after Dem Debate excoriates him over photo of dead migrants

Published

Just as Democrats began discussing immigration reform and the difficult issues facing Americans, President Donald Trump took a moment to tweet out that he was bored. The moment came specifically just after the group of Democrats discussed the photo of the migrants who died in the Rio Grande River.

At least three Democrats could speak Spanish and thus far two of them used their expertise to connect with Latino voters. Trump does not speak a foreign language.

The Associated Press captured Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria, lying face down in the muddy waters of the river as they tried to reach the American promise land. Their heads are seen wrapped in Oscar’s black T-shirt, with Angie Valeria’s tiny arm around his neck.

According to Oscar’s wife Tania, the two took off across the river. He put little Angie Valeria down on the bank and went back after Tania, but the baby rushed after him and was swept up in the river current. Oscar tried to save her, but both died before Tania’s eyes.

The family had hoped to file for asylum but were turned away, so they tried to enter the country by crossing the river. Their story isn’t the only one and it’s one that many migrants knowingly face when coming to the United States. Their situations are so dire they risk death to achieve freedom.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.

The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.

"I think for Democratic professionals who saw this guy as their political savior to save them from Bernie Sanders, they had to be disappointed last night because he was bad in politics 101," Scarborough said. "They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."

While Trump tries to remake the federal courts, progressive state prosecutors are making huge inroads

Published

on

On the national level, President Donald Trump is appointing judges by the dozens to positions on US federal courts, ensuring a conservative tilt for a generation.

But on the local level, a small group of progressive state prosecutors have been elected, and they have big ideas about criminal justice reform.

Parisa Dehghani-Tafti -- who is now the top prosecutor in northern Virginia's Arlington county in the Washington suburbs -- knows she is not the "typical" candidate for the job.

"I am an immigrant. I grew up very poor. I have done some (public) defender work," says the 46-year-old, who was born in Iran, and is a mother to two black children.

Trump lobs late-night attacks at Bloomberg after debate flop: ‘Worst in the history of debates!’

Published

President Donald Trump took a victory lap around Mike Bloomberg after the billionaire candidate flopped in his first Democratic presidential debate.

The former New York City mayor qualified for the debate in Las Vegas just last week, and his rivals were waiting for him with pointed attacks -- especially Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who eviscerated his record with women -- while Bloomberg appeared unprepared.

"Mini Mike Bloomberg’s debate performance tonight was perhaps the worst in the history of debates, and there have been some really bad ones," Trump tweeted Thursday at 1:19 a.m.
