Even Trump’s Own Administration Can’t Defend Trump’s Tweets

Trump’s latest unhinged tweets have fact checked as false by the Associated Press and have the lawyers opposing Trump travel ban popping champagne, but Trump’s own spokespeople are struggling to defend them.  Even Kellyanne Conway’s husband, a potential Trump nominee to the Justice Department has had enough with Trump’s tweets. 

Here are three Trump administration spokespeople trying to distract, dodge and duck questions about Trump’s tweets: 

Watch Kellyanne Conway Claim There Is An Obsession With Covering Every Tweet: “Every time you said twitter, imagine if you said terrorist….. You are covering tweets…. This obsession with covering everything he says on twitter and very little of what he does…”  

Watch Seb Gorka Claim Trump’s Tweets Aren’t Policy, Just Social Media: “I just find it really disappointing that not only did you have one of your staff on before me for several minutes to discuss […]

Statement on Trump’s Neo-Nazi Adviser Seb Gorka

Ahead of Donald Trump’s remarks at the Holocaust Memorial Museum’s National Days of Remembrance, American Bridge spokeswoman Sabrina Singh released the following statement: 

“As Trump remembers the six million Jews and millions of others killed by Nazis during the Holocaust, it serves as a reminder that Seb Gorka, whose affiliation to a Neo-Nazi group is well-documented and goes back decades, still serves as an adviser to Trump.

“Unless Trump fires Gorka, nothing he says today should be taken seriously. Gorka should not have any place in the White House, let alone be advising Trump on matters of national security. It’s long past time for him to go.”

Trump Adviser and Alleged Nazi-Sympathizer Seb Gorka Draws His Plans on Napkins

“‘Widely disdained‘ alleged Nazi-sympathizer Seb Gorka has such a dense understanding of Libya that he thinks a plan for the country can be summarized on a discarded napkin. Gorka’s Nazi ties and lack of foreign policy experience are alarming, embarrassing and should not be tolerated by Donald Trump. It is time for Gorka to go,” said American Bridge Spokesperson Sabrina Singh.

A senior White House foreign policy official has pushed a plan to partition Libya, and once drew a picture of how the country could be divided into three areas on a napkin in a meeting with a senior European diplomat, the Guardian has learned.

Sebastian Gorka, a deputy assistant to Donald Trump under pressure over his past ties with Hungarian far-right groups, suggested the idea […]

Meet the New White House, Same As the Old White House

What’s that about a pivot? Spare us. This morning Sebastian Gorka, White House national security adviser and widely disdained terrorism expert, wouldn’t say if the President believes Islam is a religion instead stating “we don’t need to get into theological debates” and admitted the Trump administration would not listen to counter-terrorism experts that served in the Obama administration. Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said Islam was a political ideology hiding behind this notion of it being a religion.

In response to these offensive remarks, American Bridge spokesperson Sabrina Singh released the following statement:

“It’s sad that this needs to even be said but thanks to the racists in the White House, it’s where we find ourselves: Islam is a religion. Full stop.”

“What we heard this morning was chilling but not surprising considering Trump’s history and bigotry. The President’s views are offensive and are at direct odds with the principles laid out […]
