Chuck Grassley Stumps For Trump’s Campaign Of Hate, Bigotry and Racism

Chuck Grassley is now in the tightest race in his career, and as his poll numbers continue to plummet, he’s increasingly harder to find in state. Grassley skipped out on an Iowa tradition this month when he refused to appear at the Des Moines Register’s Soapbox at the Iowa State Fair. Editorial boards and voters alike have noticed that the Senator who, in the past has been lauded for his accessibility, has become completely absent.

Chuck Grassley is coming out of hiding this weekend — to join his friend Donald Trump at Joni Ernst’s Roast & Ride. Grassley has been working behind the scenes to obstruct the confirmation of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee and hold the seat open for a potential Trump nominee, so it’s no surprise that he’s making a public appearance to stump with Trump.

Congressman Joe Heck May Cringe But Still Supports Trump

Donald Trump is wrapping up another week of headline making gaffes in Nevada today. In just the past week, The Donald has made news for“hardening” his stance on immigration, insulting and then asking African Americans “what the hell do you have to lose” by voting for him, and inexplicably calling Hillary Clinton a “bigot.”

Trump’s campaign is barely surviving after another shake-up — going from crisis to crisis instead of pushing out realistic policy agendas. Yet, Congressman Joe Heck is still supporting Donald Trump as Commander-in-Chief.

Heck may cringe at taking questions about Trump, but there is no denying that Heck is standing behind the GOP nominee. And Heck doesn’t just think Trump is the best person to hand the nuclear codes to — he agrees with Trump’s policies on much more. Take a look:

Both opposed birthright citizenship
Use the term “anchor babies”
Denied the existence of climate change
Opposed marriage […]

Trump’s Staff Of The “Best People” Now Include Bridgegate Plotter

Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed that he only hires the very best people. Apparently he considers Chris Christie’s disgraced former campaign manager and deputy chief of staff one of those people. The Trump campaign has hired Bill Stepien as a National Field Director. Christie claimed to be disturbed by  Stepien’s “callous indifference” in hatching the “Bridgegate” scandal, concerns apparently not shared by the Trump campaign.

Background:

Bill Stepien’s Role In Bridgegate

Stepien Was Central Christie Aide In Government And Campaigns

Bill Stepien Was Christie’s Campaign Manager In 2009. According to the Star-Ledger, “And Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien issued a statement late yesterday saying ‘Former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie wants to bring real change to Trenton and that comes with ending politics as usual, which this trip has become a symbol of.’” [Star-Ledger, 1/29/09]

Stepien Was Christie’s Campaign Manager In 2013. According to the Record, “‘He took charge and produced a record of accomplishment, bipartisan reforms and steady leadership […]

NEW VIDEO — Trump: Make America Hate Again

Donald Trump is running a campaign powered by fear and hatred. He’s fear-mongered about refugees and maligned Muslims and immigrants as murderous criminals set on destroying the country.

Trump said an American-born judge was inherently biased and unable to do his job because the judge is of Mexican descent. And he’s incited violence against African American protesters and maliciously attacked a Muslim Gold Star family just because they dared to question his un-American Muslim ban.

Donald Trump is mostly famous for being a racist birther, and he’s repeatedly pledged to forcibly deport the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. Is it any wonder that white nationalists are crazy about him?

​McCain’s Week Of Growling And Denying (Spoiler Alert: All because of Trump)

John McCain has proven he’s no independent maverick, abandoning the title for another one:

Trump loyalist.

While he tries to sell his national security background to voters, he simulatenously denies knowing about Russian connections of Trump’s previous campaign chair, and still close adviser, Paul Manafort. But, as Huffington Post Hill Reporter Amanda Terkel uncovered, McCain’s knowledge of Manafort’s Russian involvement dates back to 2005.

McCain’s awkward navigation of the presidential race aside — it’s clear he’s fully committed to the GOP nominee, Donald Trump. He might occasionally “growl” at reporters when he’s questioned, but voters can only take him at his word. And his word is that he wants Trump as Commander-in-Chief.

McCain should brace himself for more incoming questions on Trump, especially in light of Trump’s new chief executive and alt right hero, Steve Bannon.  (Read more from American Bridge about Trump’s ties to white nationalists here.)

Here’s The “Nothing” The Justice Dept Found When They Investigated Trump In The 70s

Donald Trump told CNN that the federal government “found nothing” when they investigated the Trump company in 1972 for discriminating against African Americans. But in reality, an investigation showed that Trump’s real estate company refused to rent property to African Americans and employees made special codes like “C” for “colored people.”  The Trumps were even found in contempt of decree and the Justice Department brought back them to court in 1978.

That’s hardly “nothing.”

Once again, Trump is lying about his record of racism.
