CNN host Jake Tapper lambasted Donald Trump for a series of racist retweets falsely accusing Muslims of violence against Christians, in an effort to stoke fear and religious hatred among his 47 million followers on Twitter.
Trump re-tweeted three videos originally posted by an extremist British political leader, Jayda Fransen, that showed unidentified individuals committing acts of violence.
The irony here is that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s impetuous tweets by claiming, “Whether or not it’s a real video, the threat is real, and that’s the president’s point.”
It is utterly insane that in 2017 the President of the United States has a license to retweet unverified, radical, inflammatory posts with little to no regard for the impacts his actions have on international relations.
An unhinged man with the nuclear codes, tweeting recklessly at 4 AM from a toilet in the White House, is a grave threat to national security and the integrity of American democracy.
Trump even took a crack at MSNBC host Joe Scarborough by peddling a ludicrous conspiracy theory relating to an “unsolved mystery” in Florida. With the bonkers call to action of “Investigate!” Trump insinuated Scarborough is a murderer by linking the Morning Joe co-host to the death of an intern at his Florida offices in the early 2000s.
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!
