During a briefing that launched a famous photo of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) giving Trump the business, she said “with you, all roads lead to Putin.” Nearly four years into his presidency, that still holds true.
If you’re worried about the news coming out of the intelligence community that Donald Trump was briefed on intel that Russia was offering bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers and the president did nothing about it, you should be. The Trump administration has yet to do anything about it or to respond at all, and like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi once said, “with Trump, all roads lead back to Putin.”
But if your biggest concern during this time, a time when more than 126,000 people have died in a pandemic and our national security is at risk thanks to an incompetent, bumbling, wanna-be strongman in the White House is statues of racist slaveowners, have no fear. Trump is all over it.
When Trump’s friend Roger Stone was convicted of not only lying under oath but threatening to kill a witness in his case as well as the witness’s therapy dog, Trump found the recommended sentence of six to nine years “a miscarriage of justice.” Throw some paint on a statue, however, and Trump believes you deserve ten years in prison.
Geraldo’s reporting, hard-hitting as he’d like you to think it is, is untrue. The New York Times has in no way backtracked on any part of their story. The word “conflicting” comes from statements made by House Republicans after a briefing on the natter, a briefing Democrats were not invited to, and they echoed the White House press secretary’s statement from the day prior. It’s a preconceived and agreed upon spin by the GOP to say the intel was “conflicting” as there’s no evidence that this is true.
Twitter had a big reaction to Trump’s Tuesday morning rant. Read some of their comments below:
