Lewandowski Visited Congress

We don't often post videos which run more than four minutes. Yesterday marked a day in US History which includes a congressional Presidential Impeachment inquiry.  The first witness called by Committee Chair Nadler was Trump's former campaign manager (prior to his most recent campaign manager the incarcerated felon Paul Manafort). Corey Lewandowski took a perch in front of the inquiry committee hell bet on mocking the process, poked fingers in the eyes of Democrats on the committee and general protecting Trump. 

Poked fingers? Case in point, at one moment during questioning by California's Eric Swalwell, Trump's operative referred to the congressman as "President Swalwell".  Of course, you know Falwell recently withdrew from a campaign for the Democrat 2020 nomination.  At another point, while taking questions about the type of "man he is", he retorted to the member of congress with. "I think I am a good looking man."  Of course, his teenage retort drew a noticeable "that was cute" smirk form one of the women who obviously accompanied him to the hearing. I have little doubt Trump loved the moments prior to the last 30 minutes of the hearing.  

The Trump operative performed well enough in the first 3.5 hours of the hearing to garner praise from Trump. CNN, MSNBC, and other media also questioned the usefulness of Lewandowski as a witness. I actually watched Wolf Blitzer and a panel literally bemoan the  Dem decision to start with the operative. Well, the hearing process ended with a 30 minute set of questions from a skilled lawyer and didn't the operative's dirty skirt show. 

During the half-hour, Trump's operative literally admitted that he previously lied on a cable news show.  If fairness to the committee at least one member of congress from Georgia got Lewandowski to admit,  he was used as a conduit towards obstruction of justice.

The thirty minutes of hell.

A very brief example of my point via Twitter.

Oh boy...

Earlier today Trump's operative sat for an interview with CNN. His credibility as a witness and a facilitator for Trump was ever clear. As clear as Trump's 12,200 plus lies since taking office.  The interview did not go well (only three-plus minutes).

Well, everything Trump touches becomes ashes.

CNN Offers Insight Into Trump Campaign Psyche (It was Ugly)

Corey Lewandowski, who tried to blast Navarro saying, “What you don’t want to talk about is the thousand Hispanics that he employees in Florida, no one wants to mention that fact. Which is more so than Ana Navarro employees or for that matter anyone else.”

Well, this is hat happens when the uninformed attempts to verbally joust with a professional commentator.  

Donald Trump apparently decided on Tuesday that maybe he should try to get more than one percent of the black vote and proceeded to make a complete fool of himself.
Speaking to almost entirely white crowd in West Bend, Wis., the Republican nominee said that Hillary Clinton is the one who is really guilty of “bigotry.” Trump also claimed that Democrats have “done nothing in return” for the African Americans who vote for them.
They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen,” Trump said. “It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes and it’s time to rebuild the inner cities of America and reject the failed, rigged system.
“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, that’s all they care about, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” he said. “They have taken advantage.
Trump continued, insisting that the lack of policing has hit African American communities the hardest. In the wake of protests and increased racial tensions in Milwaukee following another fatal police shooting of a black man, which was only about 40 miles from where he was speaking, Trump called for enhanced law enforcement.
According to Trump, “law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods” are the hardest hit by lawlessness. Then he added that “there is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct for anyone.”
Not surprisingly, Twitter erupted in mockery and called Trump out on his bullshit.
That speech still has me heated. African Americans? We see right thru him & that's exactly why he has just 1% of our vote.

Trump's speech wasn't aimed at African-Americans. At a guess, it's aimed at moderate white conservatives who don't want to be seen as racist

Hey @realDonaldTrump I wonder why African Americans want nothing 2 do w/ur campaign?!
"There were more African-Americans in the choir that opened up the DNC than there were in the entire RNC."
— @ananavarro
"Trump's speech tonight will resonate with African-Americans" — White people
If Trump cares this much about African Americans, he'll come out strongly against all the laws designed to suppress their votes. Right?
Trump: Immigrants will “take all the jobs, including from low-income African Americans.”

He doesn’t even know he’s being racist.

Trump has only said one actual thing he plans to do to win over African Americans: “More police.”

Great plan y’all.
Trump - whose early properties marked African Americans with a ‘C’ for ‘Colored’ - says he's candidate African Americans have been waiting 4
Trump is delivering standard Republican stuff about how blacks are being tricked by Democrats. Blacks generally do not believe this.
It takes some audacity for a man with a 1% to 2% approval rating with African-Americans to present himself as their true savior.

Trump started his speech seemingly trying to appeal to African Americans, who it would seem were not at the rally.
Wow. @realDonaldTrump is explaining how much he wants to help African-Americans -- to a room that is 99.9% white.
Well, it certainly seems like that was effective. Surely Trump will see a huge boost in the polls now that he has successfully convinced African Americans that he is the candidate, the best candidate, to protect their interests. Who gives a damn that David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is his BFF. Nevermind the fact that he is the darling of white supremacists and loves retweeting neo-Nazis. It is obviously Hillary Clinton that is real racist bigot here. Right?
No one, not even the narcissistic billionaire himself, can seriously believe that people are going to buy this crap.
