Trump and Ryan’s Venomous Spat Over Citizenship Intensifies

With only six days to go until the midterms, the last thing Paul Ryan wants to do is tick off POTUS.

With a massive migrant caravan forcing the issue to surface in an undeniable way, President Trump has been absolutely fervent regarding immigration as of late.

This should come as no surprise, however, for anyone who paid even the slightest semblance of attention to the 2016 election.  President Trump, then a candidate for the republican party, was the only candidate to come out and publicly verbalize the idea of creating a physical, all-encompassing deterrent to illegal immigration upon our southern border.  The idea was a huge hit with the GOP base, and likely propelled Trump to the presidency.

Now, after the President made the frankly-worrisome claim about using an executive order to amend the Constitution, Speaker of The House Paul Ryan has again vocalized his disapproval of The Donald’s rhetoric.

The amendment in question concerns birthright citizenship, and the President is fairly sure that Paul Ryan knows nothing about it.

President Donald Trump went after House Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday, saying one of the top Republican leaders in the President’s party “knows nothing about” birthright citizenship and “should be focusing on holding the Majority” in the House of Representatives “rather than giving his opinions” on the issue.

The comments come a day after Ryan threw cold water on the President’s assertion that he can use executive action to end the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to anyone born in the United States.
Ryan told a Kentucky radio station Tuesday that “you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order,” following remarks from the President indicating that Trump believes he can do just that, though many legal scholars disagree.
On Wednesday, the President tweeted, “Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!”
This episode of the spat comes just one day after several prominent leaders in DC, including Speaker Ryan, declined to accompany the President during his visit to the site of an antisemitic mass shooting that occurred over the weekend.

POTUS and George Conway Trade NASTY Narratives Online

Conway’s insinuation of Trump’s mental condition set the President off.

George Conway

After President Trump’s extended Tweet storm this past weekend, it comes as no surprise that there would be some residual precipitation throughout the week. The Commander in Chief, who is an avid and proficient Twitter user, has been using the platform to circumvent the mainstream media as of late.  The reason being is simple; the MSM is slanted and biased in ways that our nation would never have imagined possible. Of course, due to the freedom of the internet, (or what’s left of it anyway), there are plenty of characters who spend their days attempting to garner the attention of the President via the Twitter platform.  Often these short and biting pieces of drivel sail right past ol’ 45. Not today, however. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George is ‘a total loser,’ Preisdent Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Washington lawyer blasted him on Twitter as mentally ill. And the president’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claimed ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’ is ‘jealous’ of his more-famous wife’s success after being bounced from a low-prestige job at the U.S. Department of Justice. ‘He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!’ Parscale tweeted Monday night. George Conway and President Trump have feuded quite publicly in the past as well, but this latest spat seems to have arrived with a newfound intensity, thanks in no small part to the President’s increasingly combative behavior. But can we really blame Trump for this shift in attitude?  Given what passes for “news” these days, we’re not so sure.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up. “Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate. “Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics. Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”. In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.” Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration. Navarrette continued… “For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked. And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either. In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic…
