‘Befuddled reality TV host’ Trump nursing ‘sad obsession’ against Obama as COVID-19 deaths approach grim milestone: Morning Joe

Published

on

MSNBC’ Joe Scarborough thrashed President Donald Trump for nursing petty grievances and engaging in magical thinking instead of marshaling U.S. resources to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Morning Joe” host read from his Washington Post column published Wednesday evening in which he lamented the president never gave Americans a chance to save thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

“You know, the most damning element of his response may well be his stubborn refusal to marshal the resources of the U.S. government in the face of a once-in-a-century challenge, to create a Manhattan Project for our time,” Scarborough said. “To create a Manhattan Project for the veterans and the seniors who have given so much to this country and who were dying alone in nursing homes, in VA hospitals, and in retirement communities across Florida, Arizona and the country.”

“Instead, this befuddled former reality TV host continues to spend his time spinning wild conspiracy theories, attacking the state of Michigan, attacking the state of Nevada and continuing his sad obsession — and it is so sad — with former President Barack Obama,” he added. “The U.S. death toll is now rising toward 100,000 lost souls. [White House adviser] Peter Navarro was on to something at the end of January, and despite the fact that we’re approaching that bleak, bleak number, the only thing exceptional about this American president’s management of the crisis has been his gross negligence. He has allowed so many people to die in a country that remains home to the best and the brightest innovators this world has ever known.”

President Donald Trump still denies that Russia issued bounties on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan, but his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, didn't get the memo.

Speaking to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Pompeo even went so far as to issue a threat to the Trump ally.

“What we’ve said is this: If the Russians are offering money to kill Americans or, for that matter, other Westerners as well, there will be an enormous price to pay,” said Pompeo, as captured by the Washington Post. “That’s what I shared with Foreign Minister [Sergey] Lavrov. I know our military has talked to their senior leaders as well. We won’t brook that; we won’t tolerate that.”

Jared Kushner exposed as Trump’s ‘most dangerous enabler’ by veteran journalist

Published

on

Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner is the subject of a lengthy new profile in The Atlantic by veteran journalist Franklin Foer, who describes Kushner as President Donald Trump's "most dangerous enabler."

The profile draws on Kushner's history of growing up under a father who may be even more demanding and irascible than Trump to show how he is both used to managing impulsive people with explosive tempers, and how he has boundless self-confidence in his ability to solve problems.
