MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle burns Ivanka Trump on gun control ‘efforts’ in one perfect tweet

Published

on

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle blasted Ivanka Trump on all of the issues the first daughter hs tried and failed to make a difference on.

The tweet came as a Axios report about the eldest Trump child trying to work “quietly” with lawmakers behind the scenes to get gun control passed, while her father is on vacation.

In a call with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Ivanka said she “was trying to get a sense of what [gun reform] bills are out there.”

“She had him explain how they drafted the bill, where it stands and what changes need to be made in order for it to pass,” the aide also said.

Ruhle recalled that this isn’t the first time Ivanka has tried to make a difference while serving in her father’s administration. If she accomplishes the goal, it may be the first actual accomplishment she’s made in the 2-and-a-half years she’s spent in the White House.

“And climate change, and child separation policy, and women’s health, and supporting LGBTQ rights,” Ruhle tweeted, listing all of Ivanvka’s failed attempts. “Given the lack of success around the anonymously sourced quiet’ advocacy we’ve heard so much about, perhaps actually saying & doing it out loud would have a bigger impact.”

Sondland is in ‘tremendous trouble’ no matter how he tries to change his testimony tomorrow: NYT columnist

Published

On Tuesday, in the wake of testimony from several witnesses in the impeachment hearing that broadly implicated EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland in improper backchannel foreign policy, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali suggested that Sondland is in "tremendous trouble" — and that no testimony he could give tomorrow will get him out of this mess:

No. He will be trying to save himself. The perjury plus multiple stellar witnesses paint a damning portrait. He's in tremendous trouble. https://t.co/CxN5w0EErb

Even the Republican witnesses make Donald Trump look like a depraved criminal

Published

on

The second half of Tuesday's hearing offered something new in the Donald Trump impeachment inquiry: Witnesses called by the Republican minority on the House Intelligence Committee. It's understandable why Republicans would want these two men.

One of them was Tim Morrison, a former National Security Council aide who is among the few people directly exposed to Trump's famous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky who claims to believe there was nothing wrong with it. The other was Kurt Volker, a former special envoy to Ukraine, who appears to have been a major actor in Trump's extortion scheme in that country. Indeed, Volker was deemed one of the "three amigos" — along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Trump donor/EU ambassador Gordon Sondland — who Trump entrusted with Ukrainian relations as he exerted increasing pressure on the country's leaders to give into his extortion scheme.

Impeachment: Trump’s ‘hearsay’ defense just crashed and burned

Published

on

In the panoply of contradictory and incoherent defenses of Donald Trump, a favorite of Republicans has been to harp on the claim that witnesses to Trump's extortion scheme against Ukraine were all "second-hand" or "third-hand." This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.
