Maddow revolted by child sex trafficking charges against Trump pal George Nader: ‘None of this is normal’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow connected the dots between the President Donald Trump’s administration and George Nader, who served time for child pornography prior to Trump’s 2016 campaign and has subsequently been arrested on child sex trafficking charges.

“In what is an astonishingly scandal-ridden presidency, populated by an astonishingly strange cast of characters, he remains one of the most unsettling figures in all of Trump world. Again, to be clear, to disambiguate here, we are not talking about Jeffrey Epstein, seen here with the president, who is also now in custody awaiting child sex trafficking charges,” Maddow explained. “No, this is a whole different guy who you can see in this picture with the president who is now in federal custody awaiting a different set of sex trafficking charges as well as serious child porn charges and not for the first time.”

“George Nader’s role in the Trump campaign and the Trump transition and even in the Trump administration is not a glancing thing,” Maddow reported. “He’s not just a guy who showed up at a fund-raiser once.”

She then revealed Nader’s known connections to Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Eric Prince, Mike Flynn, Steve Bannon and United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

“So bottom line, if you are wondering, no, all is not well. None of this is normal,” she concluded.

George Conway fears Trump is ‘psychologically decompensating before our very eyes’

Published

on

President Donald Trump spent Friday morning melting down on Twitter as he watches bad economic news pour in, and conservative attorney George Conway worries he's suffering a mental breakdown.

Economists have been sounding alarms about a possible recession ahead of the 2020 election, and Trump has been alternately insisting things are fine while also trying to lay blame for a downturn at the feet of his political enemies.

Trump snapped at his own Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell, who has resisted pressure by the president to lower interest rates, and attacked Chinese leader Xi Jinping over a new round of tariffs in an escalating trade war.

Fox’s Chris Wallace stunned as ‘flailing’ Trump tries to order around US companies while the stock market plunges

Published

on

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace seemed stunned by a series of angry tweets from Donald Trump on Friday morning, first attacking Fed Chair Jerome Powell for not lowering interest rates than exploding at China over a new round of tariffs.

Speaking with host Sandra Smith, Wallace sat and listened as she read off the president's Twitter complaints about economic events beyond his control, including one telling U.S. companies to take their manufacturing business elsewhere.

"We are just all learning of this at the same time, but the best I can tell, the American president can’t order U.S. companies how they’re going to do their sales and where they’re going to have their supply chains," Wallace lectured. "We have a free-market capitalist system."

‘Alarming gibberish’: Trump mocked for raging impotently against Fed chair and China

Published

on

President Donald Trump attacked his own Federal Reserve chairman as an "enemy" of the United States amid his escalating trade war with China -- and other social media users were flabbergasted.

Fed chairman Jerome Powell refused to budge on interest rates, despite heavy pressure by the president in the face of a looming recession, and China retaliated against the tariffs Trump imposed with a new round of their own.

Trump lashed out at Powell, whose name he misspelled, and compared him unfavorably to Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
