WATCH: Trump’s North Carolina rally where he’ll explain why he’s not a racist

Published

on

President Donald Trump will deliver a speech to a North Carolina audience Wednesday. The rally was designed to respond to the testimony of former special counsel Robert Mueller, but after the hearing date was moved, it left Trump without an adversary.

After starting a fight with four Congresswoman of color, Trump is now expected to justify his tweets telling the women to go back where they came from. The Trump campaign has struggled to convince Americans that Trump never said those words, instead, he told the women to leave the U.S. if he doesn’t like it. The phrase is a racist trope typically used by white nationalists.

Since Trump tweeted the comments Sunday, political commentators have noted that Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, presumes that America isn’t great, and he should follow his own advice if he’d displeased with the United States.

The rally is set to begin at 7 p.m. EST, though sometimes Trump can run behind. You can watch the video below:

Trump lawyer cites former GOP senator to discredit impeachment — but leaves out he supports convicting the president

Published

During the Senate impeachment trial on Monday, White House lawyer Robert Ray attempted to contrast the impeachment of President Donald Trump with that of President Richard Nixon, by arguing that unlike in the former case, Republicans came together with Democrats to call for removing Nixon. As part of the comparison, he brought up then-Rep. William Cohen, who went on to become a U.S. senator from Maine and Secretary of Defense for President Bill Clinton.

"Together these six Republicans made history," said Ray. "They did so with no sense of triumph and no fist bumps."

What Ray chose not to mention, however, is that Cohen has specifically weighed in on the Trump case, and said that he should be impeached and removed over the Ukraine scheme.

‘Give me a break’: CNN analyst explains why Trump defense of Rudy Giuliani was terrible

Published

While the Senate impeachment trial against President Donald Trump paused for a dinner break, CNN analysts responded to the White House's afternoon defense of the president was by blaming the Biden family.

Political commentator Gloria Borger noted that Trump lawyer, Eric Herschmann, going after former President Barack Obama just seemed desperate.

"Give me a break," she said. "What does that have to do with any of this right now? His defense boiled down to, 'He did it, so what? He did it. He was trying to root out corruption.' But if he was concerned about rooting out corruption, why haven't we seen more of that? His defense was, 'He had a reason to do it. It's OK. Therefore it was in the national interest.' This wasn't just about Joe Biden."
