Trump backs the Georgia governor candidate who said he'd use a truck to 'round up criminal illegals'

Donald Trump tweeted out his endorsement for Secretary of State Brian Kemp on Wednesday, a move that comes less than a week before the GOP's July 24 primary runoff for governor of Georgia. There was little indication before this that Trump preferred Kemp over Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who has the support of termed-out Gov. Nathan Deal, and Trump's tweet only offered the usual «tough on crime, strong on the border and illegal immigration» platitudes that he gives out to pretty much all his endorsed candidates. However, it's possible the White House has decided that Kemp is likely to win next week, and they want to take credit for his victory. And while a recent independent poll from the University of Georgia gave Kemp only a small 44-41 lead, there's a good reason to think he had the edge even before he got Trump's help. Even though Cagle led Kemp 39-25 in the first round of the primary in May, the lieutenant governor has struggled to pick up more support despite decisively outspending his opponent. Trump may also simply prefer Kemp, who used one ad to brag about his «big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take 'em home myself,» to the more establishment-friendly Cagle. On Wednesday, Kemp also earned an endorsement from Clay Tippins, who took fourth place in May with 12 percent of the vote. This move was very unsurprising, since Tippins released a recorded conversation with Cagle last month where the lieutenant governor admitted to supporting a bad bill solely to stop a super PAC from backing another candidate, former state Sen. Hunter Hill. Tippins later provided Kemp with more audio of that conversation where Cagle was heard saying that primary voters were too extreme and driven by identity politics. Earlier this week, Kemp also picked up the support of Hill, who took 18 percent of the vote. Cagle is also out with what his campaign has labeled his closing ad, and let's just say he's not ending the extremely nasty campaign on a warm and fuzzy note. The narrator details what he says are Kemp's victims after 20 years in politics, beginning with, «26 women sexually assaulted during massages.» The commercial does not go into any detail about this very explosive charge, but Cagle's allies recently launched a different ad (you know, that spot that resembled a 1970s softcore porn video) arguing that the secretary of state failed to revoke licenses of a business with a «series of sexual assault complaints,» and declaring that they and other companies like them contributed heavily to his campaign. The spot continues by saying that Kemp's legacy also includes «57 farmers stiffed for millions, hundreds of seniors hurt by abusive nurses, [and] 6 million Georgians exposed to identify theft.» The narrator then asks what Kemp has to say about «20 years of failures,» and it shows a clip from his last ad where Kemp says, «I say merry Christmas.» The rest of the ad declares that NRA head Oliver North, Trump's state chair, and Deal support Cagle. Let's make sure Stacey Abrams has the resources to beat whichever Republican emerges next week. Please chip in $3 today!

Donald Trump won't call Putin a liar, but he has plenty of names for US intelligence officials

On Wednesday evening, Donald Trump sat down for an interview with CBS anchor Jeff Glor, and while accounts of that interview have indicated that Trump expressed faith in US intelligence, the actual contents don’t agree. Throughout the interview, Trump shows that he’s unable to call Vladimir Putin a liar, as he savages a long list of U.S. intelligence figures and indicates he only has faith in “his people.” Trump’s statements also include an open claim that there is a secret plot within the U.S. government—a mysterious “they”—working against Trump from somewhere in the deepest deep state to take him down. Far from walking back anything Trump said in Helsinki, his CBS interview did just what could be expected from Trump: It doubled down on his attack on intelligence officials, criticized reporters for reporting, and put forward again the idea that only someone who is a partisan for Trump can be trusted. Glor: But he denies it, so if you believe US intelligence agencies, is Putin lying to you? Trump: I don't want to get into whether or not he's lying. I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as currently constituted. It’s the “as currently configured” part of this that renders everything else moot. Because what Trump is actually saying is that he likes Dan Coats and Gina Haspel—though obviously not enough to say that Putin is lying. But his “belief” in U.S. intelligence agencies stops as soon as it passes the people he personally put in place. And that includes disregarding everything he was told by everyone up until … Tuesday? Wednesday? That part isn’t quite clear.  What is clear is that Trump doesn’t trust anyone except Coats, because he rattles off a long list of people including James Comey, Andrew McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper, Michael Hayden, and of course Peter Strzok and Lisa Page who get labeled as untrustworthy. And that’s before Trump divulges his belief in a secret cabal within the intelligence community that is out to get him. Trump: You know, Clapper wrote me a beautiful letter when I first went to office, and it was really nice. And then, all of a sudden, he's gone haywire because they got to him and they probably got him to say things that maybe he doesn't even mean. They got to Clapper. They got him to ‘say things’ he doesn’t mean. Only … who is they?

US military is depending on Russian ambassador to tell them what happened between Trump and Putin

In an interview with CBS on Wednesday, Donald Trump complained that all the coverage of his meeting with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin had not been “fair.” All the networks and papers had focused on his fumbling, fawning appearance at the press conference, his inability to stand up to Putin, and “a few statements” he made throwing his own country under the bus. When it was suggested to Trump that the media had provided wall to wall, accurate coverage of everything said at the conference, his response was telling. TRUMP: I don't care what they covered. They don't, they didn't cover my meeting. The important thing, frankly, was the meeting that lasted for two and a half hours, or almost two and a half hours. And in that meeting, we discussed many, many things that were very, very positive for both countries. But of course there’s a reason why the press hasn’t covered the contents of the meeting. We don’t know the contents of the meeting. Trump has provided only shifting, and vague claims about what was said. The press conference was supposed to tell the world what had happened in the meeting, but it turned into a showcase of Donald Trump showing his preference for Putin over America. Which, for all anyone knows, is exactly what happened in the discussion we didn’t see. Only, as the Washington Post reports, someone is coming forward to talk about that private meeting. It’s not Trump. It’s the Russian ambassador making claims about what Trump promised his country when no one was looking. “Important verbal agreements” were reached at the Helsinki meeting, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, told reporters in Moscow Wednesday, including preservation of the New Start and INF agreements, major bilateral arms control treaties whose futures have been in question. Antonov also said that Putin had made “specific and interesting proposals to Washington” on how the two countries could cooperate on Syria. Preserving the arms limits under New START would seem to be a good thing, only … we don’t know if that’s true. We don’t know anything. Except that the US military should not be scrambling to discover what happened in this meeting by listing to the Russian ambassador speak in Moscow.
