Ex-GOP rep. says Republican buddies will flip on Trump: ‘They do believe he’s a moron’

Published

Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh predicted this week that lawmakers from his own party will eventually support the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

“I think he knows it’s coming,” Walsh told CNN’s Brianna Keilar following the president’s remarks to reporters. “He sounded like a frightened baby right there.”

According to Walsh, “even Republicans” are embarrassed by Trump’s failed effort to hold the G7 summit at his Miami Doral resort.

“It’s really important to note, I need to say this, Republicans don’t like him,” Walsh explained. “Republicans in Congress. They don’t like him, they don’t fear him, they don’t respect him. They do believe he’s incompetent, they do believe he’s a moron.”

Walsh, a presidential candidate, went on to say that Republicans do respect Trump’s voters.

“They fear Trump’s voters, and Trump’s voters were bothered by what Trump did,” he said. “That will move them.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta walks through all the times Trump has ‘thrown gasoline’ on racial tension

Published

on

On CNN Friday, following President Donald Trump's abrupt exit from a press conference following a racially charged tweet, chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta broke down President Donald Trump's history of stoking racial tensions during moments of crisis.

"He is trying to clean up this tweet that he posted last night," said Acosta. "First, just what the president said a few moments ago. He said the looters in Minneapolis should not be able to drown out the voice of so many peaceful protesters. That, obviously, is a very mild version of what he was trying to say or he claims he was trying to say last night when he tweeted, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." That obviously is an expression steeped in all kinds of ugliness. The Miami Police chief back in 1967, when there was unrest in that city, used that expression. George Wallace, the segregationist, used words like that in 1968."

‘This is not going to end’: Van Jones says the public doesn’t trust local authorities to deliver justice

Published

On CNN Friday, commentator Van Jones discussed where the George Floyd case currently stands — and what must happen to ensure the peace.

"This particular medical examiner's report reminds me of the 1990s, where there was this thing called 'sudden in-custody death syndrome,'" said Jones. "Things just got so sudden that the person died. It almost began to feel like a collaboration or collusion between law enforcement and the medical examiners to come up with stuff that kind of watered down the role of the police. If hypertension is going to become an excuse for what happened here, African-Americans including myself have hypertension at epidemic rates."

‘The world witnessed a lynching’: CNN’s Van Jones explains why many black Americans are totally fed up

Published

on

CNN political analyst Van Jones on Friday said that the angry demonstrations in Minneapolis aren't only about the killing of George Floyd, but about years of pent-up frustration and anger from black Americans who are fed up with being treated as second-class citizens.

During a panel discussion with CNN host W. Kamau Bell, Jones explained that many white Americans simply don't understand that incidents like the George Floyd killing are all too common for black Americans.

"I think that's the hardest thing I think for my white friends to understand... is that this is every day," he said. "Black people being choked off from dignity, from opportunity, from humanity, from understanding, from empathy."
