Senate GOP dodges over Trump’s baseless Buffalo protester tweet

Senate GOP dodges over Trump's baseless Buffalo protester tweet 1


A number of Republican senators dodged questions or were silent when pressed for reaction after President Donald Trump suggested without evidence that a 75-year-old man who was seriously injured after being shoved by police officers in Buffalo, New York, last week, may have been part of a "set up."
In an unsubstantiated claim, the President tweeted, "Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?"
At a news conference following a Republican policy lunch, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky refused to say whether Trump's tweet was appropriate.
CNN pressed him twice, and he instead pointed to the work led by GOP Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina to try to put together a police reform package.

  1. Should be a new slogan campaign: “What is he doing!?” Gov. Cuomo.

  2. Like a police chief says, silence and inaction equals you’re complicit.

    When you think things can’t get any more appallingly despicable.

    Any Senator who supports the POTUS about this issue should get voted out of office!

    “A lot of this just goes over my head” – Summary of the U.S. government.

  8. McConnell is such a coward. He’s harming the US so much that I hope KY people vote him out of the senate.

      @Mars Tru what are you talking about? We dont watch fox news? What did trump say about that? Does his hypocrisy soothe you? ?

      And who the hell would smash their head on concrete to set up someone? Risk vs reward?

    • @Mars Tru There’s no hypocrisy. That rioter is probably on the same team as the cop who shoved the elderly man. Just wear different “uniforms” is all. This is not about hating a group – and until people start thinking of others as individuals and not part of a labeled group, we surely will never have peace or justice.

      those cops have signed their own death warrants…I hope some patriots and freedom fighters hunt them down and make them disappear

    • @ItsStillRealToMe DamnIt Paranoid BunkerBoy – puts fencing all around the white house, hiding in a bunker, tweeting hate and chaos everywhere, taking breaks only to order pizza or McDonalds. Admiring himself in a mirror – quietly chanting I am the greatest, the best. No one has done more for America – I am wonderful. lol.

    McConnell isn’t just afraid. He is a psychopath, he enjoys angering people.

  11. All these politicians act like Children, not just DT.

    Remember when Obama had to imprison himself in the White House? Neither do I. That elderly man is smart as hell to know to put a blood capsule in his ear.

    All these Republican Senators remind me of Sergeant Shultz from Hogan’s Heros!

    “I know nothing! I see nothing!”

  14. Mitch really be looking more like a turtle by the day

  15. Nah let him keep talking.He’s doing a great job killing himself.

    • lol……i hope he continues to talk like this all the way up to the elections. his poll numbers are dropping fast.

    • Tommy Gibz this is what I think sometimes… just let him keep talking. Hopefully he will bury himself

    McConnell sounds like he has a mouthful of…💩

  17. Why are people still surprised by Trump’s tweets?

  18. The Secret Service needs to take the scared little bunker-boy’s tweeter phone away from him for his own safety.

    Like someone would deliberately fall hard enuff to crack their skull.
