‘You’re scaring the children’: Nancy Pelosi says she got in Trump’s face with terms he can understand

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) revealed on Monday that she told President Donald Trump that he is “scaring children” with his family separation policy at the border.

“Children are scared,” she recalled telling him. “You’re scaring the children of America, not just in those families, but their neighbors and communities.”

“You’re scaring the children,” Pelosi repeated. “Now we have to continue to keep that pressure on [the president] to remove all doubt that we in our country respect people for their dignity and worth.”

“Families belong together,” the Speaker concluded.

Trump and Pence’s racist weekend spectacle was no accident: It’s the re-election plan

Published

on

If you doubted that the 2020 presidential campaign will be the ugliest you've ever experienced,  the past few days should have disabused you of that. It's been a descent into grotesque racism and xenophobia on a level we haven't seen in our national politics for many decades. And it's not just a matter of Donald Trump acting out and having one of his regular tantrums. There's a rationale behind his behavior that's extremely disturbing.

As everyone is well aware by now — or should be — the refugee camps at the border are a national disgrace. If this was happening in another country (and if we had a different president) the United States would be leading the charge to condemn what was happening. The plight of families, particularly the kids, is an ongoing nightmare and Trump seems determined to exploit the pain and suffering of these vulnerable people to keep the country in a constant state of hysteria.

Trump’s immigration czar snarls at CNN’s Camerota after she busts him for lying about president’s tweets: ‘So what?’

Published

In a highly contentious CNN interview, Ken Cuccinelli, Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services, snapped at CNN's Alisyn Camerota after she called him out as a liar for denying knowledge of Donald Trump's grotesquely racist tweets on Sunday.

Appearing on CNN's "New Day" to discuss ICE raids, the Trump aide claimed he was too tied up over the weekend with immigration details to be aware of the tweets that have dominated the news for almost 24 hours.

With Cuccinelli professing, "Well, I didn't see that tweet actually. I spent the weekend reading litigation and regulatory materials related to asylum," the CNN host refused to let up asking him to condemn the president's remarks about non-white Democrats going back to where they came from.

Ex-GOP lawmaker freaks out on CNN after she’s called out for being too afraid to criticize Trump for racism

Published

on

On Monday's edition of CNN's "New Day," former Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) and CNN contributor Frank Bruni clashed over whether to call President Donald Trump's demand that four progressive congresswomen of color "go back" to other countries racist.

Love, who was one of only two black Republicans in Congress at the time she lost re-election in 2018, visibly squirmed over the president's words, but danced around using the term — and lashed out at the idea that she should be expected to criticize the president.

"First of all, I think the reason why you’re not seeing Republicans come out is because it’s a very icky subject to get into," said Love. "They don’t like it. They don’t want to be part of it. They would rather it just kind of go away. Frankly to me, and I think a lot of people, it’s incredibly frustrating to see these types of tweets come out because it pulls away from any positive agenda that has to happen ... it’s going to be difficult for the president to continue to talk to independents, when he continues to make people feel like they aren’t part of the American vision he’s putting out there."
