Tuesday Open Thread | Eric Holder says he’ll never call Trump “president”

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder railed against what he called the “hateful actions and tweets” of the Trump administration this weekend, refusing to even call Donald Trump “president” of the United States.

Holder, a Democrat who served as attorney general under President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2015, spoke at the 2018 annual Human Rights Campaign dinner Saturday in Washington. The audience cheered throughout as he ran down a list of what he saw as Trump’s failures while calling for “compassionate, intellectually-driven leadership in The White House.” Holder also said Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan was rooted in fear and harkened back to the days of slavery and repression of women’s rights.

  4. .@LindseyGrahamSC you’re really being twisted here. Act like you have some common sense at least. You know darn well this is not how it works. STOP BEING IGNORANT!


  5. .@DallasPD A killer cop was released in one hour after killing a man in his own home but Black non violent, unarmed protesters were kept in jail for 2 nights. See how they are when it comes to Black lives?


  6. Didn’t I tell y’all he was a thug? He’s going to do even more damage before he is finally impeached & kicked out. I don’t think he’ll go willingly. He may have to be physically removed. But he must be severely punished for what he has done to this country.

      It will be interesting to see how the GOP goes about shaming & blaming Christine Ford.

      She’s not Anita Hill.

      but then after all, 53% of white women voted for DUMPSTER!
