Seth Meyers: Trump is so bad at looking Innocent he’d admit he wants to kill again at a parole hearing

Recommended Posts

It’s been only a week since the Republican Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump of the crimes he admitted to. In the wake of that, the president has fired anyone who complied with subpoenas and testified before Congress, and he’s even retaliated against the family of people who testified when he fired Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman’s brother.


He’s so bad at looking innocent, “Late Night” host Seth Meyers said that Trump couldn’t even make it through a parole hearing.


“He was basically an inmate at a parole hearing, and when they asked him, ‘So what are your plans when you get out?’ He replied, ‘Uh, I’d like to kill again,'” Meyers joked.

John Kelly again sides with Lt Col Vindman against Trump: Ukraine call was ‘an illegal order’

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly again unloaded on President Donald Trump’s actions toward Ukraine, North Korea, immigrants and the media.


The retired Marine Corps general told students and guests at Drew University that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council aide and impeachment witness, was simply following his military training when he reported “questionable” actions in Ukraine policy, reported The Atlantic.


“He did exactly what we teach them to do from cradle to grave,” Kelly said during the event. “He went and told his boss what he just heard.”


Trump insists his call to Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky was “perfect,” but Kelly accepted the conclusion by House Democrats that the president had conditioned military aid on Ukraine’s agreement to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son.


That would have sounded to Vindman like “an illegal order,” Kelly said — and the U.S. Army officer was duty-bound to report it.


“We teach them, don’t follow an illegal order,” Kelly said, “and if you’re ever given one, you’ll raise it to whoever gives it to you that this is an illegal order, and then tell your boss.”

Ex-GOP senator unloads on former colleagues for their ‘fatigue’ in challenging Trump’s abuses of power

On Wednesday, former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) sharply criticized his erstwhile colleagues in the Washington Post for failing to act in any meaningful way to restrain President Donald Trump during a week in which he has retaliated against impeachment witnesses, weaponized the Justice Department, and allegedly worked to strong-arm prosecutors out of a sentencing recommendation for his former campaign strategist Roger Stone.


“It should be a big moment for Republicans who have argued against this textbook concentration of power for years, whether it’s dealing with our government or autocratic governments abroad,” said Flake. “But I don’t see it. There is so much fatigue, in terms of challenging the president.”


Flake, who retired from the Senate in 2019, was legislatively a supporter of Trump, voting for nearly all of his desired bills and judicial nominees. However, he consistently criticized the president for his attacks on independent institutions and the rule of law, which made him an enemy of Trump and his supporters.


In his final months of office, he blocked judicial nominees in an attempt to force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to take up bills to prevent Trump from firing special counsel Robert Mueller — a gambit that failed when McConnell simply ran out the clock to his exit from office and the arrival of a slightly larger Republican majority.
