Lara Trump says the president is the real victim: He ‘gave up his entire life’ to be president

Published

on

Campaign advisor Lara Trump defended her father-in-law saying that he’s the real victim in this exchange between four Congresswomen of color. Then she repeated that these women can “leave” the country.

Trump began the fight Sunday when he told four Congresswomen that if they didn’t like what was happening in the United States Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The women are all citizens and all but one was born in the United States.

“The reality is everything he says, of course, was taken and misconstrued,” she said, alleging Trump’s statements were taken out of context. You can read them below:

She then attacked Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera for taking Trump out of context.

“So you can misconstrue things, you can read things the way you want and even he said today I was very clear in my tweet, and that is honestly — you can read and we want and if you like the present you can read it runway and if you dislike and you will project it,” she continued.

She then went on a diatribe about a college professor liking terrorism because his shoulders “went up” when he talked about Al Queda.

She then called Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) offensive for her attacks on the president.

“I think most Americans would be pretty offended by that,” she said. “Especially after what this country has dealt with when it comes to Al Qaeda and the fact that we have lost many soldiers fighting against them to try and protect not only our country, but countries around the world, and I get why the president is upset.”

The United States is currently fighting a more extreme version of Al Queda with ISIS. Al Queda doesn’t have much of a presence in Afghanistan, Politico explained last year.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) gave a detailed account of the emotional meltdown that President Donald Trump had with congressional Democrats at the White House on Wednesday.

On CNN Thursday, grieving British parents Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were shown footage of how President Donald Trump reacted to the motor vehicle death of their teenage son Harry at the hands of American diplomatic wife Anne Sacoolas.

Trump has refused to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas to face punishment for her actions — and tried to defuse the situation by arranging a surprise meeting between Sacoolas and the parents which fortunately never took place.

"Radd, as you watched all of that play out, describe the mood in the room and what you left feeling after that — after that surprise," said anchor Alisyn Camerota.

MSNBC conservative goes down in flames trying to separate Trump’s incompetence from his corruption

Published

on

MSNBC conservative Noah Rothman met furious pushback when he dismissed poll numbers as insignificant showing a growing majority of Americans support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The "Morning Joe" contributor argued that those numbers reflected the president's approval rating and would not exert any pressure on congressional Republicans, but instead place greater pressure on Democrats to make their case for impeachment.

"It's incumbent on Democrats to make this case," Rothman said. "Right now they are presenting a united front because it's still primary season. Once we get into the general (election campaign) there will be more pressure on them to explain their position, but it's incumbent on Democrats to make the case."
