World leaders mocked Trump because they’re tired of his ‘center of attention’ act: MSNBC guest

Published

During an MSNBC segment on President Donald Trump’s abrupt departure from NATO talks in London after video was released of world leaders making fun of him, an MSNBC guest said those same leaders have become tired of his act.

Speaking with host David Gura, the LA Times Eli Stokols said international diplomats have realized there is no dealing with the president who is in his own world and just wants attention..

“Your colleague had a great line: ‘This is a president who views norms like a teenager views curfews,'” Gura began.

“Well, he likes going to these things and blowing them up and being the center of attention,” Stokols replied.

“Why didn’t it happen this time in way it usually does?” Gura pressed.

“It’s been three years of Donald Trump going to the summits,” the reporter explained. “What Trudeau is talking about, he [Trump] holds a 40-minute press conference off the top of what’s supposed to be a bilateral meeting and that leaves no time for an actual meeting because the only time the president is engaged is when the cameras are in the room.”

“Your phone is dead by noon because he’s talking so much you’re typing and typing and so you can understand the frustration of the world leaders and what Trudeau was saying is something that all those guys he was talking to could identify with,” Stoklos continued. “It tells you that, after three years, it’s not just frustration with how Trump is or with his antics, it’s the fact that this guy stands in the way of a lot of transatlantic cooperation and strengthening these alliances.”

Published

on

According to a report from Axios, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is taking his cues from Donald Trump's 2016 presidential race playbook and his seemingly endless supply of money to knock the president down more than few notches as well as elevate his own run for the Oval Office.

According to Margaret Talev and Mike Allen of Axios, they visited Bloomberg's Times Square headquarters on Wednesday and found a well-oiled -- and financed -- machine that seems more focused on damaging the president as it is pushing the Bloomberg candidacy.

McCabe flattens Dershowitz’s pitch for the Trump team to get the same number of witnesses as Democrats

Published

on

Appearing on CNN on Thursday morning, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe shot down a proposal from Donald Trump attorney Alan Dershowitz that the president's defense team should get one witness for every witness that the Democratic impeachment managers get, saying that is not how real trials work.

Appearing on Fox News, Dershowitz attempted to make the case that Republicans should be allowed to call in Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, as a matter of fairness, saying, "If I were a defense lawyer in a case and they were trying to prosecute my client for making statements about corruption that weren't true, the first witness I'd call is the witness about whom the conversation took place. so, of course, you could never have witnesses here without Hunter Biden being a central witness."

Evangelicals have let their religion become ‘corrupted from within’ by ‘Pastor-in-Chief’ Trump: Christian writer

Published

on

Writing for the conservative anti-Trump site The Bulwark, Napp Nazworth warned that the president is playing the role of "Pastor-in-Chief" — and weaponizing religion in a way that poses a threat to the American political system.

"Earlier this month, President Trump led an evangelical religious revival," wrote Nazworth, a former writer at the Christian Post who left as the evangelical publication fell in with the president. "His reelection, Trump insisted, is necessary to 'renew faith and family as the center of American life.' This faith is the 'true foundation of American life,' and by voting for Trump, Trump claimed, 'we will ensure that our country forever and always remains one people, one family, and one glorious nation under God.' By contrast, Trump described his political opponents as the enemies of God. 'Our opponents want ... to impose an extreme antireligious socialist agenda,' he explained."
