Financial Times editor drops bombshell on Trump over increased odds of Senate booting him from office

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” an editor from the Financial Times looked at new polling showing a majority of Americans want Donald Trump impeached and said odds are rapidly increasing that the Senate will vote to remove the president.

Speaking with host Joe Scarborough, Financial Times U.S. National Editor Edward Luce said things are looking grim for the president — particularly in light of new information revealed by former Trump Russia adviser Fiona Hill.

After putting Trump’s poor numbers up on the screen for viewers, host Scarborough began, “You know, Ed, it wasn’t so long ago, maybe three weeks ago that the president said he was going to get worried if those numbers ever got over 50 percent. All of the fear and loathing, all of the weeping and gnashing of teeth of Democrats and whether they should start an impeachment inquiry. I think it’s gone away. Look at these poll numbers, they’re overwhelmingly supportive of an inquiry.”

“These polls have been so dramatic and so pronounced and so constant in the last three weeks,” Luce admitted. “I think, really this morning for the first time I was thinking about this, there is a material chance that Trump is going to be removed, one in three, one in four [odds], whatever it might be.”

“This is moving so quickly that he’s been caught out by himself more than anything else so dramatically,” he suggested. “And his foreign policy, which is the fate of Ukraine of course, is linked to all of this. It’s disintegrating in such a terrible realtime fashion causing such anguish amongst Republicans whose support he’ll need in the Senate.”

Published

Former Vice President Joe Biden talked about the importance of a president's words and accountability during times of crisis during a Friday appearance on MSNBC.

Biden was interviewed by Craig Melvin, who noted the protests tearing apart cities and asked where he would start if elected president.

"I start by talking about what we must be, making no excuses, talking about our obligation to be decent," Biden answered. "Our obligation to take responsibility, our obligation to stand up when we see injustice."

"Look, the words of a president matter -- no matter how good or bad that president is," he explained. "A president can, by their words alone no matter who they are, make it rise or fall, take us to war, bring us to peace. The words of a president matter."

South Carolina Republicans gather for an ‘active rejection’ of social distancing measures: report

Published

on

On Friday, The New York Times reported on a gathering of Republicans in Conway, South Carolina that appeared to be an "active rejection" of social distancing measures and other public health guidelines.

"The outdoor gathering here on Thursday was a send-off event for Cleo Steele, a longtime Republican Party operative in Horry County, who is retiring to Ohio," wrote Astead Herndon. "Speakers shared the same microphone. Local and state political candidates greeted voters with handshakes and squeezed tight for pictures. Of all the people gathered outside the county Republican office — many of them senior citizens — fewer than a dozen wore masks."
