Trump feels no regrets about Herman Cain’s death from COVID: NYT’s Haberman

Published

on

Last month, former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa without wearing a face mask — then 40 days later, he died from COVID-19.

Trump’s campaign held the rally in Tulsa in an indoor venue where it did not require face masks or social distancing — but New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman says the president and his advisers have no regrets about how they held the rally.

During an interview, CNN host Alisyn Camerota wondered if there was any remorse about holding the rally in the middle of the pandemic against the advice of medical professionals.

“Knowing that Herman Cain went to that Tulsa rally — okay, the Tulsa rally that the medical experts in Tulsa did not want the president to hold because they knew it would be dangerous — he went as a healthy, 74-year-old man,” she said. “He was not sick, he was not positive for coronavirus that day. Then a month later, he is dead. Is there any feeling inside the White House of responsibility, of guilt, of connection to this?”

“This is not how the White House is is handling it,” Haberman replied. “The White House continues to have a blinder view of all of this. They do not look at actions they have taken as having an impact on people getting sick, whether that’s the Tulsa rally or a lack of sufficient testing across the country.”

"Democrats argue the investigation is based on Russian disinformation aimed at tipping the outcome of the election toward President Donald Trump — a charge that Johnson rejects."

Published

on

Former Justice Department lawyer Matt Miller said that Attorney General Bill Barr has a "tell" that Miller thinks reveals what Barr will do about his new attempt at a GOP-run Russia investigation.

The MSNBC panel discussion looked back at Barr's testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, where he admitted that the White House government appointees have discussions about the 2020 campaign during Cabinet Meetings. Conducting politics under the government is strictly prohibited.

Miller noted that when Barr didn't want to answer Chairman Jerry Nadler's (D-CA) question, it reminded him of a moment at Barr's confirmation hearing where Barr wouldn't answer if
