Trump attacks Dem governor as being way in over her head on coronavirus response

Published

on

President Donald Trump attacked a Democratic Party governor on Friday.

Trump told the White House press corps on Friday that he wants governors to be “appreciative” of him — and has ordered Vice President Mike Pence not to call governors who are not.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has said that vendors are being told not to send Michigan supplies.

“I love Michigan, one of the reasons we are doing such a GREAT job for them during this horrible Pandemic,” Trump argued.

“Yet your Governor, Gretchen ‘Half’ Whitmer is way in over her ahead (sic), she doesn’t have a clue. Likes blaming everyone for her own ineptitude,” Trump posted on Twitter, describing Whitmer in the same terms medical experts have used to characterize his response to the coronavirus crisis.

Big hints lie in the official complaint against Derek Chauvin — and surprising details are left out: ex-prosecutor

Published

In a column for CNN, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig reviewed the criminal complaint filed against ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and said it gives clues as to the direction prosecutors are likely to follow to convict the alleged killer of Georg Floyd -- but it also leaves out  key elements of the case that should be brought before a jury.
