At an event in Pennsylvania on Thursday, President Donald Trump once again doubled down on his denial that he had suffered “mini-strokes” during his unscheduled visit to Walter Reed last year, and attacking CNN for reporting he had — even though they had in fact done no such thing. He insisted that the visit was merely a “physical,” which was the official line from the White House at the time.

“Yesterday, I read that I had strokes,” said Trump as the crowd booed the press and one of his supporters shouted “Defund the media!” “CNN, fake news CNN, right there … mini-strokes they called them. I don’t know what a mini-stroke is, but it’s not good. And there could be a day — hey, it happens to all of us, right? Except these young ones, it’s never going to happen to them. But it happens, but nothing happened.”

"It’s the latest inaccurate claim from the administration on the severity of the pandemic, which Trump has downplayed throughout his reelection campaign, and as Vice President Mike Pence’s office is dealing with an outbreak."

Trump and Kushner ripped on MSNBC for ‘the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging politics’

Published

Speaking on MSNBC this Tuesday, contributor John Heilman said it's hard to think of a "stupider thing to do politically in the closing days of a campaign" than to insult African Americans.

Heilman was referring to recent comments from Jared Kushner where he said the African American community has to "want to be successful" in order to benefit from Republican policies.

"So what's the dumbest thing you could do if you're Jared Kushner, the son-in-law?" Heilman said. "Go out and say a bunch of racist crap that would not only inflame African Americans, rightly so, but would give the most powerful motivator of Black turnout in the country, Barack Obama, as talking point as powerful as that one -- you heard Obama going after Jared Kushner ... he was driving the message of raising the stakes for that voting cohort that matters so much, is literally the dumbest, most suicidal, self-sabotaging piece of politics I've seen."
