Trump claims Baltimore residents called him to thank him for trashing their city: CNN

Published

President Donald Trump on Tuesday tripled down on his attacks against Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and the city of Baltimore — and he’s even claiming that many residents of Baltimore secretly agree with him.

According to CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, Trump said he had no regrets for attacking Cummings and Baltimore, and then once again blamed the Maryland congressman for conditions in the city’s poorer neighborhoods.

Trump then said, without offering any evidence, that Baltimore residents have called to thank him for his comments in which he called their city “dangerous” and “filthy.”

Trump in the past has been caught blatantly lying about phone calls he’s had with people. For example, in 2017 the president claimed that the leaders of the Boy Scouts of America called him to tell him that his speech before the Scouts’ Jamboree was the “greatest” they’d ever seen.

However, the Scouts denied ever telling Trump this and chief Scouts executive Michael Surbaugh actually went so far as to issue an apology to parents who were offended by the president’s rhetoric at the Jamboree.

Conservative Supreme Court justices’ tortured reasoning in the disastrous Wisconsin case is a thin excuse for their true purpose

Published

on

In the disastrous ruling handed down Monday night from the conservative justices, the Supreme Court said its move to sharply limit voting access for Tuesday’s Wisconsin election was based on the details of a “narrow, technical question.”

Nothing could be further from the truth. The unsigned opinion contained such a thinly reasoned and transparently frivolous defense of the court’s decision that there’s little doubt that the outcome, not the legal arguments, was all that mattered.

Bailing banks out? Again? Really?

Trillions of dollars provided by the Federal Reserve to keep banks out of trouble should sound familiar and it's an anger trigger for many.

During the Great Recession, the mighty Fed reached out with greenback-stuffed lifesavers for the giant financial institutions whose misfeasance, malfeasance and nonfeasance brought on the calamity. While Too-Big-to-Fail bank executives pocketed multi-million-dollar bonuses in 2008 as Mother Jones, CBS News and others documented, millions of regular folks lost their homes despite promises of help that turned out mostly to be hollow.
