‘Trump’s 2020 campaign is open for business’ for more foreign election meddling: MSNBC host

Published

on

In a Wednesday interview with ABC host George Stephanopoulos, the president admitted on camera that he doesn’t think it should be illegal for a candidate to take “dirt” from a foreign adversary that has hacked an opposing campaign. It prompted the host to wonder if it was a signal to other countries as the new election begins.

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said that it’s very clear the president is signaling “Trump 2020 campaign is open for business” from foreign leaders.

“Two years of the Mueller report and now we have the president’s motive,” Matthews said. “There is nong wrong with taking dirt from the Russians. It’s a shocking statement from a president who won with help from Moscow in 2016 and signals to foreign governments around the world that his 2020 campaign is open for business.”

Trump has continued to make friends with Russian leaders as well as North Korea, who has been known to hack United States businesses.

“It’s so inconsistent with the values we all understand our politicians live by, Republican and Democrat,” said NBC national security reporter Ken Dilanian. “It’s outside the mainstream. Stephanopoulos went on to say, ‘By the way, had a debate prep book from George W. Bush. He called the FBI.’ He didn’t use it because that was the ethos. And Trump is blowing it all up. And you’re absolutely right, he’s sending a signal to the Chinese and the Russians and anyone who want to interfere, it’s open season. Hack, investigate, use intelligence methods to get incriminating information about opponents and hand it to Donald Trump.”

“When I heard the president say that and nothing wrong with taking dirt from a foreign power, I thought that’s why his lawyers wouldn’t let him give live testimony,” Matthew said. “Because they were afraid this character would just do a Perry Mason and say ‘All right, I did. So what?'”

Published

As President Donald Trump promoted the drug hydroxychloroquine, one California doctor took his recommendations to the bank.

According to the San Diego Tribune, Dr. Jennings Staley is being charged in what appears to be the first case involving the drug. The FBI is charing Staley with mail fraud as part of an effort hailing hydroxychloroquine as a "miracle cure" and the "magic bullet" to an undercover agent posing as a patient, court documents say.

The few police willing to join in solidarity with protesters

Published

on

Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.

A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.

There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
