George Conway mocks Trump for alienating Franklin Graham amid impeachment fight: ‘Not real smart’

Published

President Donald Trump’s decision to hang Kurdish allies out to dry in Syria is harming his standing with evangelicals — which is a major political blunder during impeachment, prominent Republican attorney George Conway explained on Wednesday.

“Today, join me in praying as the Turkish army has invaded Syria in the area that the US military withdrew from,” Graham tweeted. “Turks have a dismal record on human rights and they can’t be trusted. Pray for the Kurds, Christians, and other minorities in this region.”

Right-wing writer Ross Douthat questioned Trump’s judgement for alienating Graham.

“Truly remarkable that Trump, facing impeachment, decided this was the time to make a foreign policy move calculated to alienate his most stalwart evangelical supporters,” Douthat noted.

George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, agreed that Trump had made a political blunder.

“He’s not real smart, as you may have noticed by now,” Conway noted.

He also acknowledged he was struggling to keep up with all the new scandals hitting the White House on Wednesday.

“Lighter tweeting today as I try to keep track of all the president’s high crimes and misdemeanors, foreign policy fiascos, and dozens of additional sexual misconduct allegations,” he noted.

Nikki Haley busted by Civil War historian after claiming the Confederate flag was once a symbol of ‘heritage’

Published

Former South Carolina Governor and Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Friday stirred controversy when she claimed that the Confederate flag was once a noble symbol that only lost legitimacy once it was "hijacked" by a mass murderer.

During an interview with talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley described how she reacted after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

"Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag," she said, referring to Roof. "And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don't have hateful people in South Carolina -- there's always the small minority, that's always going to be there -- but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it."

Conservative stunned Trump is allowing Giuliani to create more evidence against him

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Jennifer Rubin was appalled -- but not surprised -- that Donald Trump is turning a blind eye to the fact that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is overseas trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden despite the fact that the president is facing impeachment for exactly that abuse of power.

As Rubin puts it under a headline, "Trump creates evidence faster than the House can draft impeachment articles." Rubin first notes that the President has been conducting government business on unsecured lines, writing, "President Trump in the 2016 race made one argument against Hillary Clinton more than any other: Her sloppy handling of emails using a private server disqualified her from holding office. Someone that negligent with U.S. security could not be trusted."
