The Morning Briefing: Hey Nazi-Racist, Your Rhetoric is Dividing the Country
Good Monday morning.
Here is what's on the president's agenda today:
- The president participates in the arrival of the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
- President Trump participates in a bilateral meeting with the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
- The president participates in an expanded bilateral working lunch with the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
- President Trump participates in the departure of the Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
Battle with "The Squad" oozes into Sunday shows, of course
The media and the Democrats are still chirping about the Great Battle Between Trump and The Squad. Stephen Miller was on FNC talking to the nakedly biased Chris Wallace who interrogated him about Trump's infamous tweets.
“I’ve never called any of his tweets racist,” Wallace said on Fox News Sunday. “But there’s no question he’s stoking racial divisions.” It seems to me the Democrats are the ones stoking racial divisions: everything they say and all their attacks are race-based. Trump does nothing, says nothing that's not motivated by his racism, according to the Democrats and the media.
“I fundamentally disagree with the view that if you criticize somebody and they happen to be a different color skin that that makes it a racial criticism,” Miller said.
“I’m a Jew,” Miller said. “As an American Jew I am profoundly outraged by the comments from Ocasio-Cortez. It is a historical smear. It is a sinful comment. It minimizes the death of 6 million of my Jewish brothers and sisters.”
Oh enough about that, let's talk about Trump.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee said on a Sunday snuff show that Trump's tweets telling The Squad to "go back to where they came from" reminded him of the time he was told to "go back from where he came from." Cummings made his remarks to George Stephanopoulos, who also revealed that has been told to "go back to where he came from." This is a new epidemic, so many Democrats have been told to "go back," why are we only hearing about it until now?
"When Trump does these things, it brings up the same feelings that I had over 50 some years ago, and it's very, very painful," he said. "It's extremely divisive and I don't think this is becoming of the President of the United States of America."
Now, I've never been told to "go back from where I came from" 50 years ago (I wasn't born 50 years ago) but I'm white and my family came here from RUSSIA. I am also Jewish, and I was very recently told that I have secret dual loyalties to Israel and me and my fellow Jews are using all our Jew-money to pay off politicians to forsake America in favor of Israel. But whatever, that's fine, there's nothing wrong with that and it's not divisive rhetoric. Shut up.
Get ready for Robert Mueller
On Wednesday, Robert Mueller will finally testify before two congressional committees. I hear he's been working the the Democrats to provide them with those scrumptious, juicy sound bites (yum, yum!) that we are going to hear for as long as the media can milk it. The plan is to resurrect the RUSSIA collusion narrative that turned out to be a political dud for the Democrats but cost the taxpayers tens of millions of dollars.
Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) who uses a booster seat and is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee was gently interviewed by Chris Wallace. Nadler really gave away the Democrat plan which is to have Mueller read parts of the report the media can play over and over again for the dumb, stupid public who didn't read the report. Remember, the report is out there for everyone to see, so why bring Mueller in? To get the spectacle on television for stupid public who didn't read it.
Nadler says the Mueller report "presents very substantial evidence that the president is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. The administration must be held accountable," he said.
Then what is the hold up? The report is public, all the "crimes" are outlined there, let's go! Of course, Nadler has less than half of his caucus's support for impeachment, last week was the third time they tried to get impeachment moving. And then there is that small matter of no arrests or charges brought against any Trump associate related to the investigation. Pesky facts!
Rep. Adam Schiff D-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, popped off on a CBS political snuff show confirming the plan.
"Since most of our constituents in their busy lives haven't had the opportunity to read that report — and it's a pretty dry prosecutorial work product — we want Bob Mueller to bring it to life, to talk about what's in that report," the California Democrat told Margaret Brennan on CBS' Face the Nation.
Right, because the media hasn't been trying to tell them what's in the report for months, there's just NO WAY for anyone to know what's in that report, eh? A real lack of think-pieces from Vox, Salon or HuffPo and barely any media coverage if you believe Schiff.
"It's a pretty damning set of facts," he said, "that involve a presidential campaign in a close race welcoming help from a hostile foreign power, not reporting it but eagerly embracing it, building it into their campaign strategy, lying about it to cover up, then obstructing an investigation into foreign interference again to try to cover up.
"That's a pretty damning set of facts that most American people are not familiar with," Schiff said. "And, of course, the president keeps on trying to deceive them about those facts. But who better to bring them to life than the man who did the investigation himself?"
Let's get it on, Schiff, let's get it on!
