‘Undemocratic BS’: Republican challenger warns ‘Donald Trump is trying to eliminate elections’

Published

President Donald Trump was ripped for “trying to eliminate elections” on MSNBC on Friday.

“Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend,” Politico reported Friday, citing three GOP officials.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), who is challenging Trump for the GOP nomination, blasted the decision on Twitter.

Walsh was asked about the reporting on MSNBC’s “The Beat” with Ari Melber.

“This is not North Korea or Russia,” Walsh said.

“Donald Trump is trying to eliminate elections. He wants to eliminate primary elections, right now in four states, Arizona, Nevada, South Carolina and Kansas. That is undemocratic B.S. It’s wrong and that’s the kind of thing that should p*ss off Republican voters,” he added.

“Why do you think they are literally, as you said, canceling primary elections for a sitting incumbent president, why are they doing that?” Melber asked.

“Because I think, again, Ari, maybe it’s not me. I think they’re scared to death of this president having any other name on a primary ballot against him, because he’s imploding day-to-day,” Walsh replied.

“I think they’re afraid,” he continued. “That’s not a sign of strength. You want to eliminate elections? You want to take away the will of the people?”

“You don’t do that if you’re a big, strong guy,” Walsh concluded.

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

on

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump brought up Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in a bizarre rant against the "Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems" and his anger over the direction of the impeachment process:

After watching the disgraceful way that a wonderful man, @BrettKavanaugh, was treated by the Democrats, and now seeing first hand how these same Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems are treating the whole Impeachment Hoax, I understand why so many Dems are voting Republican!
