Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is being still criticized by Americans for her claim that President Donald Trump has learned his lesson. But worse, Trump has shown Collins and the rest of the Republican Senate Caucus that he has no intention of cleaning up his act. In fact, he’s said as much. When asked to respond, he explained that there was no reason for him to have learned anything because it was a “perfect call.”

When confronted by CNN today, Collins was asked if she still believes Trump learned his lesson. She quickly tried to scramble away, saying she didn’t understand why people keep asking her that question.

“This notion has proved so wrong, so fast, that Sen. Collins is pretending it never happened,” Cuomo shot back. “Just today, her quote, ‘I don’t understand why you keep linking how I voted to whether or not the president’s learned to be more careful.’ We link it because you said it.”

“Like others in an apparent play to get or keep power, and if she and the other GOPers were hoping that the president would play nice for a while, to not, you know, expose them right away as suckers, they were wrong again,” Cuomo went on.

He noted that it’s been merely a week since the Senate voted against allowing witnesses and documents to be presented in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. Already he’s fired several people who testified to Congress and he’s instructed the military to go after one of them.

CNN host threatens to end interview after Trump spokesperson smears the New York Times

Published

on

CNN host Poppy Harlow lost patience with a White House spokesperson on Monday afternoon after he deflected questions about the New York Times reporting on Donald Trump's taxes by trying to smear the paper and the reporters behind the bombshell report.

After White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern tried to smirk his way through an attack on the report and the journalists who compiled it, Harlow warned him the interview would end immediately if he didn't stick the subject and answer her questions.

"In 2017, Brian, in 2017, according to all of these documents, it appears the president paid more in taxes to Panama, India, and the Philippines than he did to Uncle Sam. How is that America first?" the CNN host pressed.

‘This is the smoking gun’: Carl Bernstein claims Trump’s taxes expose his ‘grifter presidency’

Published

Appearing on CNN on Monday morning, Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein called revelations exposed in the New York Times report on Donald Trump's taxes the "smoking gun" that could end his presidency.

Speaking with "New Day" hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, the author and journalist declared the current administration is the "first grifter presidency."

"The two numbers that jump off the page, the $750, that's what the president paid in taxes his first two years in office, but then, Carl, the other number that I think people need to know is $421 million. this is what the president owes," Camerota prompted. "These are the loans that will come due over the next four or five years. So when you see this article, Carl, what's your major takeaway?"

Former GOP governor slams Trump over ‘disturbing’ tax revelations — and throws his support behind Biden

Published

on

On CNN Monday, former Pennsylvania Republican governor and inaugural Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge — one of many Republicans who has come out in endorsement of Joe Biden — reacted with outrage to the bombshell New York Times report that President Donald Trump has paid virtually no taxes and papered over financial losses for years.

"The fact that he has paid $750 annually in income tax is revealing of many, many things," said Ridge. "Most of all, I think, it kind of reveals the lack of transparency, the lack of honesty, and his inability ultimately, I think, to connect with people who scramble, maybe two household incomes, scramble to pay $1,000 or two in taxes, and speaks to not only the lack of transparency but I think historically he's shown a tremendous lack of empathy and appreciation for those people who struggle with limited income. He certainly doesn't live the lifestyle of limited income, although he's paying taxes as if he has limited income, and professes to be different, but he has no empathy and no transparency there. That's probably more disturbing than anything else."
