Trump mocked on MSNBC as real ‘secret Muslim president’ for proposed meeting with Taliban

Published

on

An MSNBC panel on Donald Trump’s shocking admission that he had planned to hold secret meetings with the Taliban at his Camp David retreat reached several conclusions on Sunday morning, including saying his plan to force the hand-over of Afghanistan to the Taliban would amount to a “surrender.”

As part of an “AM Joy” panel discussing Trump’s Twitter admission on Saturday night that he had canceled a “secret” meeting with Taliban leaders, The Beat DC founder Tiffany Cross quipped the bigger secret is that Trump might be the “secret Muslim president” rightwingers claimed Barack Obama was.

With the panel wondering where saber-rattling Republicans — including Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and R Tom Cotton (R-AR) are — conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin suggested Secretary of State Mike Pompeo should resign over Trump’s aborted meeting at Camp David.

“Do you expect to hear outrage from Lindsey Graham?” host Reid asked Cross.

“It is kind of ironic. maybe it turns out Donald Trump is the secret Muslim president that they feared Barack Obama was,” Cross joked as the panel laughed. “Where is the outrage from the right? I don’t understand this, the scary thing from all of this. This should be breaking news banners all across the country.”

“I wonder what Fox News is talking about,” she continued. “We talked about this on Friday, trying to cover this administration, it’s like trying to catch confetti, there is so much. The challenge is foreign policy, there are so many people removed from 9/11, so you go to his rallies and you ask these MAGA people, ‘tell me the difference of Taliban and Al Qaeda?’ I doubt they can do this.”

“I fear what will happen with the president having access to the [nuclear] codes,” she added. “This is crazy because he puts it out there for us to see.”

Adam Schiff moves to implicate Pence in the Ukraine scandal as Republicans go off the rails

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.

Why saying ‘OK boomer’ at work is considered age discrimination – but millennial put-downs aren’t

Published

on

The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.

Though it originated online and primarily is fueling memes, Twitter feuds and a flurry of commentary, it has begun migrating to real life. Earlier this month, a New Zealand lawmaker lobbed the insult at an older legislator who had dismissed her argument about climate change.

Published

on

Ambassador Gordon Sondland may be the most dangerous witness for President Donald Trump in the impeachment hearings so far, and that's in part because he has a lot to lose.

And according to CNN's Shimon Prokuecz, his scheduled testimony for Wednesday morning is making Republicans nervous:

Multiple GOP sources say they are most worried about what Gordon Sondland will do tomorrow - and whether he will turn on the President. The fear, Republicans say, is that he could undercut the last GOP defense. @mkraju
