Trump Can"t Stop Losing Manufacturing Council Members After Charlottesville! SAD!

Remember when Donald Trump told his supporters there would be so much winning, they'd get "tired of winning"? How's that going? When it comes to Trump's manufacturing council, not very well.

How's that going? When it comes to Trump's manufacturing council, not very well. Related: Late Night Sounds Off On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists 45's failure to immediately condemn the alt-right Nazis and their violent actions in Charlottesville -- and continued failure to call it out as domestic terrorism -- has led to a fourth CEO leaving the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative, following execs for Merck, Under Armour, and Intel. This time it's Scott Paul of the Alliance For American Manufacturing, a nonprofit founded to help keep manufacturing jobs in the United States, who tweeted: I'm resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it's the right thing for me to do. — Scott Paul (@ScottPaulAAM) August 15, 2017 BTW, Paul is a Democrat who was unhappy with the difference between the trade policies of candidate Barack Obama and President Obama. Clearly he must realize by now that Trump is not the man to help anyone. Photos: Protesters Flock To Trump Tower After Charlottesville! How is Trump responding to all these companies publicly shaming him? He called them out as "grandstanders" on Tuesday, tweeting: For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2017 Really? All-caps and monosyllabic. He sure knows how to woo his base. Meanwhile, several companies are staying. GE, Dow Chemical, Whirlpool, Campbell Soup, International Paper, and Nucor all released statements condemning racism and intolerance -- but said essentially that their participation on the council was too important to quit in protest. (Dell just said there was "no change" to its status quo with Trump.) This is the same problem as with Republicans during the election. Everyone is fine condemning the consistently awful things Trump says, but they're too afraid of losing a seat at the table to actually distance themselves from the POTUS. Well, it's time to take a stand, boys. Because if you're not going to expressly denounce this man and his actions, you're turning a blind eye and letting it happen. Sound familiar?

Donald Trump Blames The "Crooked Media" For America"s Social & Political Divide While Defending His Charlottesville Response!

When it comes to violent rallies that result in the death of an anti-white supremacy activist, Donald Trump likes to blame "both sides."

But when he's talking about the giant divide of the country he runs, the president knows only one entity is at fault: the crooked media! Video: Trump Supporters Are Creepin' In AHS: Cult Trailer! POTUS launched a new attack on the "sick people" in the media at a campaign-style rally on Tuesday night, labeling it as "the source of the division in our country." He told a pumped up crowd in Phoenix, Arizona: "These are sick people. If you wanted to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media." The rant came as Trump defended his response to the deadly Charlottesville rally earlier this month, which began in protest of the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Related: Wife Of U.S. Treasury Secretary Ices IG Haters! Unsurprisingly -- and kind of impressively, tbh -- the president divided his supporters further from the other side in the same breath he blamed the media for the social and political divide, hissing: "It's time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions and yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage." Trump then spoke on how the media reacted to his responses to Charlottesville. After reading a version of his initial statement that left out the part that faulted "many sides" for the violence, he said: "They don't report the facts. Just like they don't want to report that I spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry and violence and strongly condemned the neo-nazis, the white supremacists and the KKK. I openly called for unity, healing and love and they know it because they were all there." To his credit, he did condemn the white supremacist groups -- after commenting that some "very fine people" were among the neo-Nazis and KKK protesting the removal of the Confederate leader. Related: Trump Supporters Cancel 37 Rallies Across The Country! The president faced criticism from the media and political leaders -- both Democrats and Republicans -- over his initial response to the violence. But in Trump's eyes, it was only his third statement on the incident that mattered. He complained: "I hit 'em with neo-Nazi. I hit 'em with everything. I got the white supremacist, the neo-Nazi. I got 'em all in there. Let's see. KKK? We have KKK. I got 'em all. So they're having a hard time. So what did they say, right? 'It should have been sooner; he's a racist.'" The crowd at the Phoenix Convention Center seemed to agree, as some were reported to yell out profanities and spit out insults at reporters during the rally. But, you know, this one-sided lib-trash post is what's dividing the country........»»

Donald Trump Gives His Reason for Not Condemning White Supremacy Right Away

I don’t want to go quickly…I want to know the facts. During his press conference, Trump took questions from reporters, and was continuously calling reporters “fake news.” In addition, the President then placed some blame on the alt-left counter protesters. “What about the alt-left that came charging at…the alt-right, do they have any semblance of guilt?

New Bill Calls For Donald Trump To Get A Mental Health Evaluation Following Charlottesville Comments!

A new bill has been introduced to the House of Representatives that would require the President to undergo a physical and mental health exam to see if he's psychologically stable enough to stay in office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren introduced the bill on Friday, which would call on Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Cabinet to remove Trump from office should the results be unfavorable. In a statement announcing the bill, Lofgren questioned if the president is suffering from "early stage dementia," inquiring whether or not he is "mentally and emotionally stable" enough to lead a country. Related: Trump Administration As Game Of Thrones Characters! Lofgren, who is not a psychiatrist or psychologist, pointed out that Trump has yet to release a "serious" medical evaluation to the public. Though she doesn't expect the bill to pass, the representative for California's 19th district told Mercury News the legislature "will stimulate conversation," adding that the Kook-in-Chief should go along with the evaluation if "he cares about the country." The bill, which would invoke the 25th Amendment in allowing the VP and a majority of Cabinet members to remove the president from power, stems from Trump's widely criticized response to the Charlottesville white supremacist rally. Lofgren has already made her thought's on the matter clear, tweeting: Something is seriously wrong with President Trump. Why can't he just condemn Nazis? Unscripted words today show who he really is. Shameful! — Rep. Zoe Lofgren (@RepZoeLofgren) August 16, 2017 Other politicians have suggested booting 45 out of the White House with the 25th Amendment, which is why Lofgren is calling for Pence and other Cabinet members to "quickly secure ... medical and psychiatric professionals," to evaluate Trump's mental health. She explained: "If it was a physical ailment, you would be getting the advice of doctors. The same thing should be true to take a look at his stability here." Sounds like a great plan in theory, but this is definitely a long shot. Anyone with eyes can tell that the president is a few floors short of a Trump Tower, but his failure to condemn his strongest voting demographic may be a very sane -- even shrewd -- move. Maybe there's a diabolical evaluation we can make him take instead?.....»»

The former Breitbart News leader was said to be the real brains behind getting Trump in the White House, but later became too influential for POTUS' liking. Not only was Bannon pushing Trump to follow through on his widely-criticized campaign promises, the media vet was reportedly clashing with top White House advisers -- specifically, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. The real kicker for Trump, though, may have not been Bannon's link to the alt-right amid a white supremacy uprising -- but actually, his recent comments that there was "no military solution" to the North Korean crisis!

Related: Trump & More React To John McCain Brain Cancer Diagnosis A source close to the family says the Trump boys are envious of Kushner's influential role as POTUS's senior adviser and miss being part of the family fun post-election, explaining to People: "All the attention to Jared is a bit of a sore point and they feel left out of the fun in D.C. They miss being at the center of the action." Awww, is that why Junior lashed out and WikiLeaks'd himself? Ivanka Trump's husband resigned as chief executive of Kushner Companies and as publisher of the Observer in January to become the right-hand manboy of the president. He's been given a big plate in the White House -- taking on criminal justice reform, Middle East peace, and everything in between. But if you ask the Trump boys, they won't be able to tell you why Kushner is getting all the love these days instead of them. The source added: "Don worked on the campaign and Jared gets the big Forbes cover and they make him out to be a big genius, and Don is like, ‘No, I worked on the campaign too!'" While the brothers were very visible and outspoken on the 2016 campaign trail, the 36-year-old Kushner was more of a behind-the-scenes player -- which, in the end, is the type of figure who thrives in the White House. Related: Trump Had Second Secret Meeting With Putin At G20 The family source continues: "During the campaign, the brothers thrived on being the spokespeople and speaking at rallies and being very visible.

Though Don Jr. and Eric may be jelly of their brother-in-law, the source says there is no "outward hostility" toward Kushner -- and although Jared "seems uptight," he's actually "hilarious" once you get to know him!

A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. On Monday, Pearce Tefft penned a moving letter to his son Peter, warning that he will be ostracized from his family if he refuses to let go of his "hateful opinions." Video: Late Night On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists In a post on the Forum of Fargo website, Pearce wrote: "My son is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast." Peter calls himself a pro-white activist who went to Charlottesville to protest against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The "Unite the Right" rally erupted into violence after "pro-white activists" clashed with counter-protesters demonstrating against the event. Peter was seen in news footage at the event and, days later, promoted his cause on CBS Minnesota, whining about how "white people deserve civil rights." Related: Jennifer Lawrence Encourages Unmasking White Supremacists! He also flipped the term "white supremacy" on its head, explaining: "As far as the term white supremacist goes, in my view, anybody that thinks white people don't need advocacy, they are the white supremacists." Uh... wut? Like most, Peter's family does Na-zi the ways of his bizarre logic. His nephew Jacob Scott has described the pro-white activist as a "crazy Nazi," telling the Forum: "He scares us all. We don't feel safe around him, and we don't know how he came to be this way… We reject him wholly — both him as a vile person who has himself made violent threats against our family, and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor." Pearce echoed the family's sentiments, making it clear his son's "twisted worldview" was not learned at home. In response to the multiple threats the family received, Peter's father added: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview." Yikes. How did we get here, again?

On many sides,” Trump said in his speech. During last night’s (August 13) episode of Last Week Tonight, John joined a number of celebrities in condemning Trump for his failure to call out the white supremacists. “Wait, on many sides?” John said in response. “This was a white nationalist rally, you have to call that out by name. There honestly aren’t many instances in modern American politics where you can honestly think, ‘That guy really should have mentioned the Nazis,’ but this is emphatically one of them. It’s like a reverse Godwin’s Law: If you fail to mention Nazism, you lose the argument.” Watch the full segment below… John Oliver – White Supremacist Rally.....»»

Church rebukes white supremacy but can't ignore white privilege

The Christian church no longer condones white supremacy in America, but it must recognize white privilege's role in racism's public re-emergence.         The Christian church no longer condones white supremacy in America, but it must recognize white privilege's role in racism's public re-emergence.        .....»»

Trump Wants Police Officers To Be MORE Violent To "Thugs"!

Police brutality has been a huge conversation in America throughout history, and the president is finally speaking up about it. But of course when Donald Trump opened his butthole mouth on the subject, it was to say that he felt police weren't brutal ENOUGH to the "thugs" they arrest!

But of course when Donald Trump opened his butthole mouth on the subject, it was to say that he felt police weren't brutal ENOUGH to the "thugs" they arrest! Video: Maxine Waters Take Trump's Treasury Secretary! POTUS spoke in front of law enforcement officers on Long Island, New York on Friday to discuss efforts to combat the violent MS-13 gang, and received resounding applause when he promoted police brutality. While thanking the officers on all the great work they do in keeping the streets safe -- something we all commend -- the president took a nose dive into Trumpsanity suggesting the officers should hit suspects' heads on the doors of their police cars. He mused: "When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said, ‘Please don't be too nice.' Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you're protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don't hit their head and they've just killed somebody, don't hit their head, I said, ‘You can take the hand away, OK?'" The room responded to his remarks with applause: President urges officers to commit acts of brutality, officers laugh and cheer wildly. Beginning to think problem isn't a few bad apples. pic.twitter.com/o1sSgw6lGy — Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) July 28, 2017 Though, to be fair, the suspect in Trump's hypothetical scenario HAD just killed someone. Not to mention, the MS-13 gang has severely affected the Long Island community recently, as civilians have been rocked by a string of high-profile murders in the area. Related: Trump Blindsided By Republican Senators! The Shit-Stirrer in Chief continued to say that his administration would be "changing" laws to no longer protect the criminals, adding: "For years and years, [laws have] been made to protect the criminal. Totally protect the criminal, not the officers. You do something wrong, you're in more jeopardy than they are. These laws are stacked against you. We're changing those laws… We're going to enforce our laws, protect our borders and support our police like our police have never been supported before." Yup, this all goes back to border protection. The president has often spoken about the "criminal cartel" MS-13 -- which has origins in Central America -- and its relationship to illegal immigration. No one is arguing that the MS-13 is a problem, though some experts have raised concerns about the Trump administration using the gang to justify its controversial immigration policies. As for Trump's police brutality comments, there's a huge difference between rallying officers and encouraging "rough rides" like the ones that killed Freddie Grey and Philando Castile.
