Ex-Trump staffer: Mulvaney needs to resign and get himself a good lawyer

Published

on

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci suggested acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney resign immediately and lawyer up due to his complicity in Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call seeking dirt on Joe Biden.

Ostensibly brought on to talk about his plan to attempt to draft Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) to run against Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination, Scaramucci — who host John Berman jokingly noted only lasted 11 days in his White House job — admitted that he was a fan of Mulvaney, but that he has put himself in a bad place.

“I feel bad for him,” Scaramucci began, causing host Berman to ask, “Why?”

“Well, because he’s a good guy,” he explained. “At the end of the day, Mulvaney’s a good guy and he’s working for a terrible person. Let’s be honest, you can’t work for a guy [Trump] like that. He’s a horrific manager, he’s like a porcupine; every time you go to touch the guy, you get cut up some way.”

“Mick Mulvaney was like that teenager in a horror movie that was scratching ‘help me’ on the fogged shower door, okay?” he continued. “That’s what he was doing last Thursday. If I were giving Mick Mulvaney advice, I would resign and get myself a really good lawyer because he’s obviously working at the direction of the president you’re going to have to explain a lot of things.”

“Here’s what happens to the president,” he warned. “The mayor has discovered this, Mayor [Rudy] Giuliani, and everybody who spends a lot of time with the president. He will continue to move the goalposts on you to get you to a point where you’re disavowing your personal integrity and your personal life story. They are there now and I want to say, you’re a good Catholic: resign and go to confession, okay? And then let’s rebuild your career from here. You were trying to help the country by being this guy’s chief of staff, it’s an impossible thing.”

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
