Judiciary Panel Member Declares Trump An ‘Embarrassment’ To The U.S. Over His Hatred


At a recent campaign rally, former President Donald Trump derisively mimicked a stutter while complaining about the “State of the Union” address recently given by President Joe Biden, leading to condemnation for Trump’s stance on real-world issues affecting and impairing many Americans.

“Trump is an embarrassment to the United States of America. Trump repeatedly mocks veterans, Asian Americans and those with disabilities. Trump just mocked Biden for stuttering. Biden overcame his lifelong stuttering issue to beat Trump and become President of the United States,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) wrote on X, formerly called Twitter. Lieu serves on the House Judiciary Committee, and he is also the vice chair of the House Democratic Caucus. He’s also on the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC).

Lieu’s reference to Trump mocking Asian Americans reflects developments including a couple of high-profile flashpoints, from Trump’s long insistence on calling COVID-19 the “China virus” to his belittling and evidently intentional misspellings of former Cabinet Secretary Elaine Chao’s last name. Chao served in Trump’s own administration and on the presidential team of the Republican Party’s George W. Bush. She is the wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), outgoing leader of Senate Republicans.

Trump and many Republicans are characterizing Biden’s “State of the Union” address as divisive and hateful, besides Trump’s characteristic complaints about the current president supposedly not doing or saying enough about the border… though the Biden team was involved in a bipartisan proposal on the border voted down in the Senate by Republicans. The Republicans calling Biden too angry and political are glossing over how his claimed anger reflects the frustrations of clearly many Americans amid developments like the conservatively leaning U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. And is anyone aligned with Trump really trying to call Biden the one who’s supposedly too political, meaning election or campaign grievance-focused?
