Democratic U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota did his best Donald Trump impression Friday, and it left a lot to be desired.
Ellison, the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, made a spectacle of himself with the help of his son, Minneapolis City Council Member Jeremiah Ellison, as the two jammed out for MinnRoast2018.
Ellison donned a blond wig and suit with red tie, and played the guitar, while Jeremiah provided percussion to the tune of “Guantanamera.”
For advocates of major reform of the U.S. education system, they now have a mutual ally in former Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
Last week, Obama’s first education secretary embraced a call for “America’s 50 million school parents to simply pull their kids out of school until we have better gun laws.”
This is brilliant, and tragically necessary. What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe? My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us? https://t.co/Yo4wsFuJI5
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is defending violent MS-13 gang members after President Trump referred to them as “animals” during a meeting at the White House Wednesday with mayors, sheriffs and other leaders who oppose sanctuary policies.
Trump was speaking with a roundtable of California officials when he made the remarks, and Pelosi and other Democratic leaders are working to conflate the comments to include all illegal immigrants.
Unbelievable… Pelosi straight up defending MS-13.
“Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person? Calling people animals is not a good thing.” pic.twitter.com/t9uuAzKuE2
During her weekly press conference, the House Minority Leader — whom some speculate will be the next Speaker of the House if Democrats recapture the majority this November — was seen uttering gibberish, bizarrely laughing and staring off mid-sentence before re-engaging the press during the appearance.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spent a Wednesday press conference offering new reasons why President Trump’s policies are a “raw deal” for Americans, while doing her best to sell an ambiguous “better deal” from Democrats.
But Trump left her tongue-tied, stumbling over words and correcting her own garbled speech.
Pelosi attempted to build the case that Trump is breaking campaign promises about cracking down on the cost of prescription drugs and trade issues with China, though the 77-year-old’s meandering monologue was difficult to follow.
Texas Congressman Al Green took a shot at fellow Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments arguing against impeaching President Trump, alleging the House Minority Leader’s words trivialize his campaign to unseat Trump for “hateful, harmful, bigoted policies.”
Green also alleged the president’s policies discriminate against Jews, despite Trump’s widely heralded decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem to recognize the city as Israel’s eternal capital – a feat prior presidents have tried and failed to accomplish.
Levi Sanders, the only biological son of Vermont senator and 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, is running for Congress in New Hampshire, and he’s speaking his mind about problems in the Democratic Party.
Among the biggest issues is Democrats don’t make voters feel good enough about themselves, he said, unlike the “incredible job” Donald Trump and the Republican Party is doing, the Independent reports.
“The Democratic Party has done a very poor job of bolstering people’s confidence and self-esteem, and that has significant consequences when it comes to reaching out to low-income and working-class people,” Sanders said, pointing to Hillary Clinton’s penchant for talking down to voters.
“When Hillary Clinton used the word ‘deplorable’ that had a significant effect on so many people. They basically said ‘We understand that Donald Trump is not a nice guy, but he is one of us.’ He said ‘Yes, I know I’m a billionaire, but I’m like your weird uncle. I’m not politically correct and I’m not judging you’ and that’s the key.”
Now we know why Hillary Clinton wasn’t able to campaign in Michigan and Wisconsin: She was forced to spend so much time looking more presentable to all those sexist American voters who only care about appearance!
During a book event in Australia this week, the failed presidential candidate once again disparaged Americans, saying the double standard for male and female candidates put her at a disadvantage.
