Watch GOP senators dodge questions about Trump’s tweet

Watch GOP senators dodge questions about Trump's tweet 1

 

CNN's Anderson Cooper calls out a number of Republican senators who 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.

      @Philly Beccio wasn’t it the same in N Dakota?

    • Donald tDUMP is a freaking BULLY AND VINDICTIVE. Donald tDUMP’s words will not hurt you BUT if you’re scared of Donald tDUMP, you will lose your right to exist as a human being.

    • Voting him out…This isn’t a Disney movie. (You ve got fascists in the Supreme Court. Seat for live ) We are talking about an extreme narcissist = psychopath here. Hasn’t he been clear enough yet? A narcissist exposed, under pressure brings out the worst in them. When going down they are ready to take everything and everybody down with them. Even more in need to show their power. You think you’ve seen crazy? Fasten your seatbelt. Narcissists thrive on provoking until their targets can’t take it anymore. When they finally explode they point the finger. Claiming they are the victim and you misbehave. Take it as an excuse to punnish you. Kicking while you are already down. They want you out of balance, emotional. Devided. Sadistic cowards. Compulsive liars. Gaslighting. Never wrong. Don’t know empathy, guilt nor shame. Really no heart. Sadistic, cruel powergame. Grandiose sense of self. This at the core of racism. His enablers made this possible. Plus the indifference of the ‘United’ States. Fertile ground for fascism.

      It’s too easy to blame this mess on trump. Here respresents unwilling, arrogant, indifferent America. Your silence has been earth shattering. The whole world knows you never were the greatest country. It’s you just waking up to it. Insane.
      I admire the patience of the people needing to educate white privileged people about empathy, like toddlers. See the resembles with bunkerboy? How ugly and what cruelty it creates not to listen to the pain, to respect it. That’s 401 yrs of oppression. Your Indigenous people are living in camps ffs! and America goes about their day. Shame on you. They stand up for your clean water, for values. Last in line to get support during a pandemic. Same as the black community.
      Good to see peoples from all creeds together supporting BlackLivesMatter. I thank you. May we rise together. ✊🏿❤✊🏼. Europe is with you

    What’s wrong with him?!” Know empathy!’ Ridicule everthing!!” ‘The elderman was pushed down!’ Hard enough that land’s him in the hospital!” Know compassion!”

    • He does not know those things

    • Yes, so pitiful. Whatever it is and what political ideal he is in, he is a senior person of 75 yes old and deserves love and respect. Your Police Brutality is atrocious to us in other parts of the world. No way near the very restraint and professional Police force in HK.

    • Worst if All, what did your Lunatic President tweeted? Most disgusting.

    • He wasn’t just pushed, but shoved backwards. Many people have died from this sort of shove.

      ​@Todd Hardman It’s reality. The Black Panthers, heroes all, in the 60’s excercise their 2nd Amendment rights and carry guns to the Capitol in use of that right. They get that right taken away by legislation. In Virginia groups did the same thing. Exactly the same thing. The vast majority of whom are white. They get called some stupid names by progressive fools.

      In Illinois, in Chicago, the Mecca of Black activism, guns have been effectively outlawed and owning a gun takes the infringement procedure of having to buy and maintain a FOID Card. “Maintain” being the “operative” word. Firearms Owner Identification Card. The very definition of “infringment.” I am not Black. But I believe that Black Lives Matter even (and especialy) when it comes to the Second Amendment. This is about L I B E R T Y not just gun ownership. I stand on history and show your opinion of my username as absurd. In fact, those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Thom Hartmann springs quickly to mind as a propagandist that is very dark indeed. But pretends he is light. Of course.

      Ariel Shwartz they all look like gradeschool kids out there collecting March of dimes money and then going to the Local wars to get a shake and a burger and then tell the school that they didn’t collect anything except for the checks! Do you remember having your little milk carton going on collecting for March of Dimes as a kidI can’t tell you how many Catholic kids only came back with checks no cash and no change! This is what Mitch McConnell reminds me of! I took all of the cash up front but I only gave you the checks because they would’ve been documented!

    Bunch of cowards. They are the same age, I wonder if they would like if someone pushed them…

      Oh you have an excellent point. And I think Trump is the biggest coward of them all. It’s easy to talk big with a keyboard and a barricade, while hiding in a bunker. He dishes it out and literally can’t take it. It’s comical, but mostly sad at how the majority of Republicans avoid the questions. Some of their “excuses” are so obviously idiotic. They continue to make themselves look like fools, and for what?

    • I really think Anderson needs to give up his job and give a black person a chance at his position. Why are all these positions taken by whites?

    • It’s getting close to the time that maybe we should push them 🛑🐂💩

    • @Cheryl Pounds “Bunker Boy Bone Spurs” or “TRIPLE B-S” is truly MENTALLY UNHINGED 🛑🐂💩

    • @D D must of missed don lemon. I forgot all the black anchors fox news has….ZERO.

  19. I am APPALLED at the president’s response to a older citizen being assaulted.

  20. Spineless cowards. Traitors by every measurable standard.
