WASHINGTON – In the last days of the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump fought on brutal power.
On Comey Letter: “The investigation is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and it is everyone’s hope that justice can finally be delivered, he said on October 28, 201
On WikiLeak’s Revelations: “Boy, I love to read the WikiLeaks,” he said on November 4.
When Comey said there was nothing new in these Abedin / Weiner mail: “Right now, [Hillary Clinton] is protected by a rigid system. It is a completely rigid system. I’ve said so long. You can not review 650,000 new emails in 8 days, you can not make it people. Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows. The FBI knows that, he said on November 6 – two days before the presidential election.
And the story seems to repeat in 2018, at least in how Trump fought last night in Montana about conspiracy theories, Hillary Clinton, violence and brutal power.
And in 2016 this pure brute force of Trump could work, because there is no similar response from the Democrats. If the next 18 days will be like last night, Trump’s message will be dominant. Are democratic television ads on healthcare, bipartisanship and “check and balance” enough to counter Trump on the campaign trail?
If you woke up from a coma and watched Trumps rally in Montana last night, you would conclude that the president and his party were off the rails. Instead, given the voting and senate momentum we have seen for GOP in the last month, it seems that Trump actually puts the train back on track.
You think if you were fighting for a democratic “mob”, you would not praise someone who acknowledged attacking a reporter. But here we are via NBC Jonathan Allen:
“President Donald Trump praised Rep Greg Gianforte, R-Mont., Thursday to physically assault a reporter during a house race last year.” Never crush him, “Trump said Gianforte has a campaign experience here. “Every guy who can make a body slam, he’s my guy.” “
” Gianforte accused guilty of an assault attack last year after Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian, said the then candidate Gianforte was sentenced to 40 hours of community service, 20 hours of advisory counseling and payment of a fine of $ 385. As part of a bourgeois settlement, he apologized for responding to physical violence on a question asked by Jacobs about health policy. “
” Encouraged by the audience in a rally against the colorful background of a Big Sky sunset, Trump added that he did not believe the episode would hurt Gianforte with Montana well years – “I think it can help him,” thought Trump thinking. “And it did.” “
Speak how the President talks about violence against reporters …” Hard Republicans and Conservative Commentators raise a wisdom campaign against Jamal Khashoggi designed to protect President Trump from criticism of his dealings with the alleged assassination of dissident journalist Saudi Arabia – and support Trump’s continued aversion to a powerful response to the oil-rich desert kingdom, Washington Post reports.
More: “In recent days, a conservative conservative house republic who is associated with Trump, exchanging articles from the right-hand outlet that burn suspicions about Khashoggi and emphasizing his association with the Muslim Brotherhood in his youth and giving rise to conspiracy issues about his work decades ago as an embedded reporter covering Osama bin Laden, according to four GOP- officials involved in the discussion ns who were not authorized to speak in public. “
Politics:” Interior Minister Ryan Zinke tried to postpone or change department policy to motivate his taxpayers travel with his wife, the Authority’s Inspector General Secretary said in the latest critical report on travel reforms by President Donald Trump’s Cabinet Members. Zinkes maneuvers included pushing domestic staff to investigate if his wife, Lola, could become a volunteer at the agency, a move that employees said was designed so that she could travel with him at the expense of the taxpayer. “
At the Arizona Campaign Trail, NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard GOP Senate asked candidate questions about Trump and her 2017 vote to abolish and replace Obamacare.
Hillyard: When the president comes to town [today]] will you encourage him not to refer to another woman as a horseface?
McSally: Come on, Vaughn.  Hillyard: There are many young Arizonans
McSally: I did not agree with it. I thought it was inappropriate, okay. I thought it was inappropriate. It’s an absurd question.
Hillyard: You are not sorry to vote for [health-care]?
McSally: See, that was not a perfect proposition. I suggested too many things in the invoice. advocated making sure that it was $ 60 billion awarded to Medicaid when d I personally advocated and led the $ 90 billion fight for tax credit for the age of 50-64 because I was worried when moving from Obamacare to a more stable market, it will take some time for that market to pop up . And I did not want age 50-64 to get hurt. And that’s 90 billion dollars, an extra $ 2000 in tax credits. I advocated $ 15 billion for nursing and mental health, and an additional $ 8 billion for those with existing conditions. So I will continue to be constructive of these complicated problems. “
The broadcast from NBC’s Shaquille Brewster:” Sen. Sherrod Brown’s campaign threatened to take legal action against his Republican opponent Rep. Jim Renacci on Thursday night after Renacci released a statement commissioned by a woman who said Brown attacked her in the late 80’s … “Just a few hours after a cessation and sent to Jim Renacci informed him that he, if he chose to continue making unauthorized and false claims about something that never happened would face legal consequences, Jim Renaci’s former business partner and friend, in conjunction with Renaci’s campaign, have made a statement with nothing but further anonymous and untreated statements ” said Brown’s campaign advocate Preston Maddock in a statement. “
” Renacci released a statement at the bottom of the press release and wrote: “While the comprehensive and well-motivated claims and court records describing Sherrod Brown’s long history of engaging in acts of violence have already disqualified him from continuing to serve in the United States Senate, these Further allegations from another prosecutor obviously reveal even more questions and alarms about Sherrod Brown’s behavior towards women. “
