Twitter baffled at Trump’s tirade over Roger Stone’s sentencing

Published

on

Roger Stone, a longtime confidant of Donald Trump, is facing sentencing this Thursday in a Washington federal court after being convicted in November of lying to Congress and witness tampering. In a Twitter rant this morning, Trump lamented Stone’s predicament, saying he’s being unfairly targeted while figures like James Comey and Hillary Clinton have escaped justice.

“‘They say Roger Stone lied to Congress,'” Trump tweeted while sending a shot at his least favorite network, CNN. “I see, but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information, for which almost everyone, other than Crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI!

"This is not even a smart person," Trump added.

Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in political science and economics.

The attack had parallels to when Trump claimed in 2011, baselessly, that he had heard President Barack Obama had been a "terrible student" — even though Obama had run the Harvard Law Review.

Trump adviser Larry Kudlow: ‘We don’t want to have’ voting rights protections get through Congress

Published

on

On CNBC News Thursday, President Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the administration does not want protection of voting rights to pass as part of the coronavirus stimulus package.

"So much of the Democratic asks are really liberal left wishlists we don't want to have," said Kudlow. "Voting rights, and aid to aliens, and so forth. That's not our game."

Talks between Congress and the White House are currently at an impasse. The administration is refusing to support outlays greater than $1 trillion, and the president has explicitly demanded there be no funding for the Postal Service, to keep voting by mail as difficult as possible.
