Trump’s Hypocrisy On Rashida Tlaib Just Got Exposed In The Most Humiliating Way Imaginable

Published

It should be obvious to everyone by this point that President Donald Trump has absolutely zero integrity or self-respect at all. What might continue to shock you though – and certainly leaves us here at Blue Side Nation consistently baffled every single day – is how breathtakingly stupid so much of what he says and does is. Take, for example, the recent outrage over Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. The Palestinian-American was heard saying, about Trump, “We’re going to impeach that m*therf***er!” Cue confected outrage from the entire GOP who, despite constantly calling everyone on the Left “snowflakes” for objecting to racism and hate speech, are apparently unable to deal with cuss words.

It was not long, of course, before people in the press began to pick up on the blatant hypocrisy of the reaction of the Trump cronies to this incident. Perhaps the very best taking down of Trump of all came from journalist Dean Obeidallah, who wrote an op-ed for CNN about it. In an article that will surely be derided by the President on Twitter as Fake News (simply because it speaks the unpleasant truth about the appalling nature of the current President of the United States and leader of the free world) Obeidallah mercilessly takes Trump down, picking apart the reasons why his position is totally unjustifiable.

Many of Donald Trump’s supporters at Fox News were outraged by Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s use of the word “motherf***er,” in reference to the President, on Thursday night. If only these same Trump supporters could get half as upset over Trump’s racist and sexist remarks, his alleged corruption and his inhumane immigration policies.

This latest display of hypocrisy came after Rep. Tlaib spoke at a party organized by the progressive organization Moveon.org. Relaying a conversation she’d had after winning, Tlaib told the audience, “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re going to go in there, we’re going to impeach the motherf***er!'” The reaction was swift. The audience in the room cheered Tlaib, once again making it clear that the progressive base remains passionate about opposing Trump — by any political means possible.
On Trump’s side, the response was equally intense. There was Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” bemoaning Tlaib’s comment as being “uncivil.” And Fox News anchor Sandra Smith asked White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley: “I just wonder what this says about decorum in this new era of divided government and the new Congress?” Decorum? Smith should receive an Oscar for not laughing when she asked that question given Trump’s history of racist comments. In particular, Trump has attacked the intelligence of certain prominent black Americans, be it the basketball star LeBron James, whom he referred to as “dumbest man” on TV or Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif), who he said has a “Low IQ.”

In response to that question, Gidley laughably responded by slamming Democrats for their “nasty, ridiculous, outrageous rhetoric.” I guess Gidley has not heard the vileness of his boss — from mocking Dr. Christine Blasey Ford during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings to just last week referring to retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal as a man “known for a big, dumb mouth.” Then there was the reaction of GOP House leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who was absolutely beside himself that Tlaib had used the curse word. McCarthy, at a press gathering on Capitol Hill, began by patting the GOP on the back, saying that when the Republicans had control of the House, “They put a resolution together to actually work with one another, to not use foul language… This is the difference with this Congress, and it’s wrong.”
McCarthy was immediately challenged by a reporter who noted in reference to Trump’s mocking of Stormy Daniels, “The President not too long ago referred to a woman as a ‘horseface,'” adding, “Who within your caucus called out the President for that type of language?” McCarthy, not offering any names or even noting what his reaction had been, responded, “I think a lot of them did.” And while some prominent ones, including then-Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, did, that is but one instance of a select few doing the right thing. McCarthy then walked off before reporters could ask follow-up questions.
If only McCarthy were this worked up over allegations made under oath that Trump directed his then-personal lawyer Michael Cohen to violate campaign finance laws in order to help win the 2016 presidential election. (Trump denies these allegations.) Instead, McCarthy did his best to minimize those allegations: “To go forward and say there’s an impeachable offense because of a campaign finance problem, there’s a lot of members in Congress who would have to leave for that.”
Wow! Now that, folks, is how you respond to hypocrisy from the White House! I predict we will be seeing and hearing a lot more from Dean Obeidallah in the near future.
