Fox News graphic busts White House press secretary for lying about Syria cease-fire

Published

on

A Fox News chyron underlined a major lie by White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

She still hasn’t given an official press briefing, but Grisham made one of her frequent appearances on “Fox & Friends” to celebrate a cease-fire negotiated Thursday by Vice President Mike Pence that’s already been broken.

“The president has an obligation to look out for the troops and look out for the country,” Grisham said, justifying President Donald Trump’s decision to remove troops from northern Syria and abandoned Kurdish allies to ethnic cleansing by Turkey.

“When (Turkish president Recep Tayyip) Erdoğan made it clear he was going to invade, the president acted decisively to pull our military out of the way,” Grisham said. “He sent a delegation over to get a cease-fire. That takes time.”

As she spoke, a graphic reading, “fighting continues in Syria despite cease-fire,” ran underneath a split screen showing Grisham alongside video of fighting in the area U.S. troops have abandoned.

“I will not talk about operations on the ground, I leave that to the Department of Defense,” Grisham said. “The president is to protect our country. He is putting America first. He always said that we’ll not be in never-ending wars anymore. As for the cease-fire, I’m really happy that our delegation was successful. We’ll leave it at that.”

Mitchell made the remark after President Donald Trump said that he was considering holding his convention speech at the White House.

"Joe Biden is not going to Milwaukee," Mitchell told Pelosi. "How much does this damage the campaign?"

Pelosi disagreed by insisting that Democrats will hold a "great convention."

Mitchell then asked about Trump's plan to hold his convention speech at the White House.

Trump’s psychiatric disturbance could destroy democracy if he wins a second term: clinical psychologist

Published

on

I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.

Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.
