Well, Maxine Waters is at it again, saying President Trump is less worthy than vicious gang members.
“This guy is a street player,” Waters said. “I mean, he’s a guy that has conned folks, he has flirted with gangsters. I have worked in some of the toughest communities. I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips. I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the hood than this man has.”
I’m not sure if this means has one of the worst cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome in the history of psychiatric medicine or if she is insufficiently repelled by the Crips and the Bloods.
Well, it’s Nevada caucuses time, and the demographics are a little different then, uh, New Hampshire. So it’s a good moment to review Democratic presidential candidate pandering to Latinos by speaking Spanish and feeling lots of immigrant pain.
Do Hispanics want to be addressed this way? Is it actually respectful? Somehow, I don’t think my grandparents wanted Franklin Roosevelt to try to speak to them in Yiddish.
This kind of thing is all over the place in the press. President Trump’s admittedly over-the-top remarks Tuesday in response to his acquittal in his impeachment trial are being compared to the “dignity” of Bill Clinton’s response to his own acquittal.

But what all the journalists peddling the “dignified” Clinton response to his acquittal are leaving out is, this, the defiant political rally Clinton held with Democrats in the Rose Garden after the House had impeachment him.
“We must stop the politics of personal destruction,” he said, going on to accuse Republicans of “poisonous venom” — I know, redundant — “obsessive animosity,” and “uncontrolled anger.”
Clinton and his people fought to vilify the Republicans at every turn for impeaching him. There was nothing dignified about it, until dignity was what Clinton decided would work best for him.
I thought this was supposed to be a somber, serious affair. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer would not have touched Rudy Giuliani crony Lev Parnas with a sterilized surgical glove before Parnas decided to claim that President Trump knew about his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens. Now he’s an honored guest at… Continue Reading
