Even as mainstream Americans have spent the past few days railing against Donald Trump for his latest blatantly racist remarks, Trump keeps trying to distract from the issue by attacking Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein. Trump is angry, of course, because Feinstein released the Trump Russia dossier transcripts this week which further help to expose Trump as a traitor who conspired to rig the election in his favor. Feinstein fired back at Trump today, saying that he’s gotta go.
Dianne Feinstein tweeted the following this afternoon: “If the president can’t control himself and lead this country with the authority, dignity and leadership it requires, then he shouldn’t be the president. There’s no room for racism in the Oval Office.”
This came after Trump told members of Congress yesterday that he doesn’t want immigrants coming from (black) countries like Haiti because they’re “shithole countries” and he’d rather have immigrants from (white) countries like Norway.
Donald Trump has been hurling one vicious and dishonest attack at Dianne Feinstein after another. For instance, he tried to distract from his Haiti scandal last night by tweeting “Democrat Dianne Feinstein should never have released secret committee testimony to the public without authorization. Very disrespectful to committee members and possibly illegal. She blamed her poor decision on the fact she had a cold – a first!” Now that Feinstein is publicly fighting back, watch the coward Trump back off.
