‘Oh, c’mon’: WaPo columnist goes scorched earth on Trump kids for complaining about Hunter Biden cashing in

Published

on

Appearing on “AM Joy,” with fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin, Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank rolled his eyes and laughed off complaints from the children of Donald Trump who have been criticizing former Vice President Joe Biden’s son is cashing in on his famous name.

Responding to a clip of Eric Trump complaining about Hunter Biden landing jobs he may not have been qualified for because of who his father is, Milbank brought up all three Trump kids — Eric, Don Jr. and Ivanka — of their own sins while their father is in the Oval Office.

“It is breathtaking,” the smirking Milbank said after watch the Eric Trump clip. “They used to say of George Bush that he was born on third and thought he hit a triple. That would give too much credit to these Trump boys. I think they were born on third base and think they scored a touchdown. They don’t have any awareness at all.”

Stating he wasn’t going to defend the Bidens, he continued, “I mean, the amazing thing is this is coming in the same week when Trump attempted to have the G7 at Doral before pulling it back. I mean, you know, talk about a quid pro quo. this entire presidency has been about, you know, a quid pro cash flow.”

Turning back to the Trump kids, he continued, “I mean, we’ve seen this over and over again. It’s sort of a projection, remember ‘no puppet, you’re the puppet’? Whatever President Trump or for that matter his sons are accused of, it becomes that which they accuse the opponent of.”

“Think of Ivanka Trump getting her trademarks in China at the same time the president is negotiating with the Chinese,” he elaborated. “Think of the Saudis. Think of Attorney General Bill Barr paying tens of thousands of dollars to the Trump Hotel in Washington for his Christmas party. Think of all the lobbyists putting in money there; this is all going to the bottom line and to the profits that are enjoyed by Don Jr., Eric and the president himself.”

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.
