Conservative offers the perfect explanation for why Trump is ‘tanking’ in devastating new Fox News poll

Published

on

During an MSNBC panel, discussion on a new Fox News poll showing Donald Trump is lagging far behind a handful of the Democratic presidential front-runners, conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin suggested the president take a hard look at his declining numbers because the devil is in the details.

Earlier on MSNBC, fellow Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson looked at the same numbers and flatly stated, “This looks like a campaign going down the tubes right now.”

Rubin concurred and claimed that the White House is currently on edge and has no idea how to stop the slide.

“I think they’re quite worried, at least the people who know what’s going on but they dare not to do anything about it, they say, because they’re afraid these plans would leak,” she explained. “So they’re doing absolutely nothing, which gives you a sense of the circular convoluted thinking that goes on.”

After saying the biggest threat to Trump’s re-election chances is the struggling economy and threat of recession, Rubin advised viewers to take a hard look at the Fox News poll.

“I encourage all your, viewers whenever you look at these polls,” Rubin suggested. “Look at the votes of white women, suburban women, college-educated women — Trump is tanking with all of those groups.”

“And though it’s not a totality of the reasons, one of the reasons is what we just saw, women hate this meanness, this bullying, this super macho routine and he is personally offending and turn off American women,” she elaborated. “It’s not the white male, non-college-educated voter Democrats have to scoop up, it’s all of these women primarily in the suburbs just like they did in 2018 when they swept to a majority in the House.”

Republican Kevin McCarthy gets taken down by former top GOP colleague

Published

on

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
