Trump defended Bernie Sanders and attacked newspapers during post-golf Twitter meltdown

Published

Donald Trump appeared visibly agitated during his Florida vacation on Saturday as the United States Senate ramps up the impeachment trial of the president.

Trump spent Saturday at Trump International Golf Club, before returning to Mar-a-Lago.

“Trump is at his golf course in West Palm Beach again. It is his 76th day there. He has now spent 241 days on a golf course he owns in his 1,094 days in office,” HuffPost’s S.V. Dáte reported Saturday. “He is on his 27th trip to Mar-a-Lago, raising his taxpayer-paid golf tab to $127 million.”

At Mar-a-Lago, Trump unleashed a Twitter tirade. He began by bragging about his approval rating among Republicans — while ignoring that the majority of Americans disapprove of his job.

Trump then alleged that the Democratic National Committee was rigging the primary against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Trump went on to attack Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig over their highly-anticipated book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America prior to its Tuesday release. The commander-in-chief complained that the book was “demeaning and belittling.”

The leader of the free world then turned his attention to climate change, blasting the idea of New York building a sea wall to protect against rising sea levels. Instead, Trump urged New Yorkers to rely upon “mops and buckets” — a suggestion for which he was harshly criticized.

After having already attacked The Washington Post, Trump set his sights on The New York Times:

In an open letter on his website, Young said Trump's "mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable."

"I don't blame the people who voted for you. I support their right to express themselves, although they have been lied to, and in many cases believed the lies, they are true Americans. I have their back," he continued.

'Questioning Where They’re From, Aspects of Their Lineage'

The Bernie Sanders campaign is defending his refusal to release his full medical records by accusing voters wanting to see those records of engaging in a form of birtherism.

“What you’re seeing right now is really reminiscent of some of the kind of smear, kind of skepticism campaigns that have been run against a lot of different candidates in the past, questioning where they’re from, aspects of their lineage, etc., etc,” Sanders campaign national press secretary Briahna Joy Gray said in response to a question from CNN's John Berman Wednesday morning (video below).

People who say they’re ‘fiscally conservative but socially liberal’ just don’t understand these 7 things

Published

"Well, I'm conservative, but I'm not one of those racist, homophobic, dripping-with-hate Tea Party bigots! I'm pro-choice! I'm pro-same-sex-marriage! I'm not a racist! I just want lower taxes, and smaller government, and less government regulation of business. I'm fiscally conservative, and socially liberal."

How many liberals and progressives have heard this? It's ridiculously common. Hell, even David Koch of the Koch brothers has said, "I’m a conservative on economic matters and I’m a social liberal."
