Republicans are ‘cringing’ at Trump’s latest racist attacks — but are too scared to say anything: report

Published

on

A new report from Axios claims that several Republicans are privately sickened by President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen — but they still won’t criticize him publicly.

One source described as a “Trump ally” tells Axios that “Republicans with a conscience are cringing” at Trump’s strategy of telling Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) to “go back to the crime-infested places from which they came,” despite the fact that all four congresswomen are American citizens.

However, the source also said that the president believes his racist attacks on the women are a winning political strategy that will help him win reelection in 2020.

“He believes the more he puts ‘The Squad’ front and center, the better his re-election chances get,” the source said.

The source said that GOP lawmakers feared that they would potentially face primary challenges if they called out the president for being a racist.

“If anything, history has said that this stuff does go away and that it’s not worth the potentially catastrophic political cost of weighing in against him,” the source claimed.

A former White House official, meanwhile, admitted to Axios that Trump’s strategy is “insane” and doubted it would be effective at helping him win next year.

According to a report from the New York Times, longtime government employees who landed their jobs because of their Republican bonafides are now coming to work each day with the threat of dismissal hanging over their heads if it is believed they are are not totally on board with Donald Trump policies.

Following a report that Johnny McEntee, a 29-year-old loyalist just installed to take over the Office of Presidential Personnel, is instructing "departments to search for people not devoted to the president so they can be removed," the Times notes that just because a staffer is a Republican in good standing doesn't mean that won't be booted.

Here is why these Nevadans are betting on Sanders

Published

LAS VEGAS — Any doubts that Nevadans wouldn't show up for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were quickly squashed by the amount of people lined up to get into his Friday night rally in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus: an estimated 2,020, according to his campaign. One would have been forgiven for assuming the crowd spilling out the main entrance and down the street had lined up to get into one of the city's hottest shows, not a "Get Out the Vote" event. Despite stereotypes that Sanders only draws support from the young (and mostly white), the crowd was visibly diverse in age, ethnicity and race. And anyone who didn't arrive already wearing the requisite Bernie gear had plenty of opportunities to buy some as they waited to enter the venue.

Roger Stone’s dream of booting judge for sentencing comments brutally crushed by ex-US Attorney: ‘He’s met his match’

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday afternoon, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance crushed any hopes former Donald Trump associate Roger Stone might have that his prison sentence will be voided due to comments made by the presiding judge in his federal trial.

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Vance left no doubt Stone's latest legal gambit will collapse just like his previous attempts to squirm out of his trial did.

"Stone's legal team says that Judge Amy Berman Jackson's assertion that the jurors served with integrity shows bias," host Witt stated. "Do you buy that argument and legally would that be enough to get the judge dismissed from the case?"
