On Tuesday, President Donald Trump addressed Turning Points USA, the right-wing youth group, where he continued to vilify Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other progressive congresswomen.
“These people have lost all control. Even the Democrats, they laugh, but now they’re getting dragged into a radical left position,” Trump said. “Can’t imagine who’s doing that. But they’re being dragged — they’re being dragged radical left with these people that I believe honestly, I believe they hate our country. Okay?” he said.
“But screaming and shouting, out of control, and then you see they have now another clip, where she’s even worse. This is representing us? This is not what we want representing us, I don’t think,” he said of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).
He then singled out Ocasio-Cortez, mocking her name.
“I think it’s why we’re going to have a tremendous victory in 2020. And when I have one of the others — I guess this is Cortez,'” he said.
“‘Sir, her name is Alexandria’ and the guy couldn’t figure out her second name. I’m so funny. I’m being interviewed by — her name is Alexandria,” he said.
“Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Okay,” he never figured it out. I said, “That’s okay. I told him, ‘Just call her Cortez, because I don’t have time to call her by the whole name. It’s too long.”
“You know, you’re doing an interview. But she called our country and our people garbage. She said, “Garbage.”
He then turned to Hillary Clinton.
“That’s worse than deplorable. Remember deplorable? Yes you do. Remember, Hillary,” he said.
The crowd proceeded to shout four more years.
He returned to Ocasio-Cortez.
“We don’t like when they talk about ‘evil Jews.’ We don’t like when they say horrible things about Israel,” he said.
“And then you don’t have the Democrats fighting for Israel, and they end up passing things that have nothing to do with what the original problem was. You saw that. So I don’t know what they’re going to do. I don’t know.”
World leaders mocked Trump because they’re tired of his ‘center of attention’ act: MSNBC guest
During an MSNBC segment on President Donald Trump's abrupt departure from NATO talks in London after video was released of world leaders making fun of him, an MSNBC guest said those same leaders have become tired of his act.
Speaking with host David Gura, the LA Times Eli Stokols said international diplomats have realized there is no dealing with the president who is in his own world and just wants attention..
"Your colleague had a great line: 'This is a president who views norms like a teenager views curfews,'" Gura began.
"Well, he likes going to these things and blowing them up and being the center of attention," Stokols replied.
Trump slammed for lawless obstruction of Congress: ‘He’s taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution’
On CNN Saturday, former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY), who voted for the articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, discussed the path forward for impeaching President Donald Trump.
"We know moderate Democrats are a bit frustrated with leadership over potentially expanding the scope of their consideration, maybe the Mueller report findings and drawing up these articles of impeachment," said anchor Victor Blackwell. "Do you think it's a mistake not to include anything beyond the Ukraine matter?"
"Yes," said Holtzman. "I think it would be a mistake, although, you know, I'm still at a distance, and the members of the committee really have to, who have been digging into this deeply have the best feel, but my sense is that the, what the president did is so egregious, not just with regard to Ukraine, but what part of what's bad about his activities in Ukraine, is that he's taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution by saying that Congress has no right to get information, and he's cut off his committee, his administration from, and ordered and directed them not to cooperate with the committee in any way."
Giuliani pummeled by ex-press secretary for ‘returning to the scene of the crime’ to create Ukraine chaos
On CNN Saturday, Rudy Giuliani's former mayoral press secretary Ken Frydman harshly criticized his former boss for his ongoing efforts in the Ukraine scheme.
"As you've watched the former mayor over the last several years, have you identified a point at which things shifted for the man who I guess still is for some known at America's Mayor?" asked anchor Victor Blackwell."
"Well, yeah. I think when he went into business with Donald Trump," said Frydman. "You saw a — a severe change in his personality. He had a zealous need to make money, to be relevant. To be part of the political process. And you know right now he's making, I think, ill-advised decisions, like returning to the scene of the crime, Ukraine, to make a propagandist documentary. Almost as if he's playing, he and the president, are playing, 'catch me if you can.' The president will not participate in the impeachment hearings, and Rudy is off in the Ukraine doubling down."
