Some Republicans criticize Trump for meeting with white supremacist

Key word "some". What is MTG's take on this?

David Friedman, Trump's former ambassador to Israel, said anti-Semites "deserve no quarter among American leaders, right or left."

"To my friend Donald Trump, you are better than this. Even a social visit from an antisemite like Kanye West and human scum like Nick Fuentes is unacceptable," Friedman wrote on Twitter.

A diplomat who had no problem serving with a president he praises who called immigrants and POC protesting against police violence "rapists, savages" and countries on other continents " ****holes".

I suppose antisemitism triggered him. All the rest is fine.

This is Republican virtue signaling. Free speech, big tent.

Fuentes' and Trump's opinions are not fringe in the alt-right MAGA griftosphere.

What can you expect, that is the mentality of the MAGA gang, extremism is their instrument to polarize and entertain their mass of followers..

The most pathetic thing is that only "some" criticized this, and what with the rest of the "glorious" GOP???..

Interesting things happen at the Mar-a-Lago lair..

There is no Trump 2.0. This is who he is. He is willing to break bread with the worst of humanity on Thanksgiving (His family wasn’t doing something together? Shocker!) if it will validate his tissue thin ego.

THEN he will lie about not knowing, deflect and whine.

And his cultist Rubes in Congress will carry his water and pretend they’re deaf.

The Anti-Defamation League said Fuentes once "'jokingly' denied the Holocaust and compared Jews burnt in concentration camps to cookies in an oven.'"

Filth.

You turn the hosepipe on these types if they come to your door.

Mentally functioning Republicans should tear into Trump for this. The Jewish space laser crowd may like it but they belong in zoos.

Strange how Ye (Kane West), a "Black" guy, brings with him a White Supremacist to Dinner at Trump's venue. Trump reportedly said Ye is a Troubled man...

Incidentally, wasn't he married to Kim Kardashian ... perhaps Social Media got to him ?

As well as being a racist and fascist, Nick Fuentes has, to put it gently, very poor social skills:

The best way not to inadvertently have lunch with an anti-Semite is to not have lunch with an open anti-Semite and allow him to bring a friend.

Just like there’s no Trump 2.0, there’s no GQP 2.0. They cannot, will not call out and reject their racist, anti-Semitic, xenophobic, homophobic base because they would lose every national election and most state races where it’s a threat to win.

So silence as the nut-job caucus whistles past the grave where what was left of the Republican Party of Regan lies.

Trump made excuses instead of speaking out against the beliefs of Nick Fuentes who he claimed he knew nothing about.

Trying to distance himself from Fuentes by saying he didn’t previously know the far-right activist or inviting him to the dinner.

"Dining with bigots is perfectly on brand for Trump, given his well-documented history of making vulgar comments about majority non-White countries and downplaying the threat posed by White supremacists."

"Trump wrote on Truth Social, his social media platform, that West had shown up unexpectedly at Mar-a-Lago with three friends and that “we got along great.” "

You're just plain hysterical, Jimizoo. Although meeting with Kanye West is foolish, no one in their right minds believes Trump is a "white supremicist". People like you are simply looking to score political points.

No one cares.

So, Mara-lardo is supposedly so safe that highly classified documents are perfectly safe in the dotard’s desk. And yet…..

People He “doesn’t know” can waltz into his club for a sit down, order off the menu unbidden, right?

And the USSS is just fine with strangers walking up to a former POTUS to talk shop, right?

Yeah, that seems “improbable”…..

So which is it? He’s knowing dining with a widely recognized Anti-Semite (2 of them actually) with full fore-knowledge of who they are and the views they espouse? Or is Mara-Laredo not really that secure and he shouldn’t have stolen highly classified documents stored there?

To be fair, it’s actually “both.”

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Fuentes has been described as a white supremacist by the U.S. Justice Department and he attended the Jan 6, 2021, rally in Washington that preceded the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters. The Anti-Defamation League said Fuentes once "'jokingly' denied the Holocaust and compared Jews burnt in concentration camps to cookies in an oven.'"

So Trump had dinner with a guy that compares his daughter, (converted Jewish), son-in-law (Jewish), and grandchildren to "cookies burnt in an oven"....

Gee, what a great father and grandfather, huh?

Oops! what's this?

President Trump was exonerated more than 2 weeks ago?

What other 2 week old news are you unaware?

-12 ( +2 / -14 )

The dream team: Trump, West, and Fuentes. Donald Trump was reported as 'very taken' with Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.

7 ( +9 / -2 )

Nick "Jew-baiter" Fuentes "gets" Trump so tone-deaf Trump gave him a pass for stroking his bruised ego, but shot himself in the foot politically: the whiff of antisemitism by association with those two other dim right-wing narcissists has reduced Trump's political capital and pushed him further towards the pariah state that many in the GOP hope will sink his 2024 shot at the presidency. Of course, Garland should in theory be the man to get that job done.

Trump's Jewish daughter Ivanka and her Jewish husband Jared Kushner are believed to be the ones who spilled the beans to the FBI over the documents Trump hid at his Mar-a-Lago.

Maybe Trump's Jewish grandchildren had dinner with the likes of Nick Fuentes.

A. He’s a FORMER president

B. He was not exonerated in any way shape or form. He’s about to be indicted though.

No. Ore than you are giddy about Trump condemnation.

President Trump was exonerated more than 2 weeks ago

I couldn’t find where it says former president Trump was exonerated in the article you linked to. There was this:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.

Doesn’t sound like he’s been exonerated yet.

Except:

A. He’s a FORMER president 

B. He was not exonerated in any way shape or form. He’s about to be indicted though.

Other than that, you nailed it! 

Congrats…

A. ALL former presidents are referred to as President after their time in office. Even Barrak Obama

B. Exonerated. The FBI has ended the investigation (right after the midterms - imagine that!)

so yes. I nailed it.

-14 ( +1 / -15 )

Exonerated. The FBI has ended the investigation (right after the midterms - imagine that!)

Um, naming a special counsel doesn’t end the investigation or “exonerate” the orange blob.

min fact it makes criminal indictments more, not less likely.

but by all means continue.

Summary: every person here has had dinner where someone they know brought someone they don’t know.

no one is responsible for the views of someone they have dinner with. and none of you leftists (or anyone else) even knew who this person was until your media told you to be offended.

Then you ran and googled the person, same as i did.

-16 ( +1 / -17 )

Trump is under criminal investigation for the removal of nearly 3,000 documents from the White House.

Did he show them to West and Nick Fuentes? Did he share his Macron sex file with them?

Why didn't Trump speak out against Nick Fuentes? Instead of denying he knew nothing about him and trying to save his own scalp.

The days of White rule left America decade go,

No, it’s still here, look at the WH and most of their minions.

A. He’s a FORMER president 

Yes, so why the obsession ?

B. He was not exonerated in any way shape or form. He’s about to be indicted though.

Yes, he was, and even if he is indicted, it’s more for visual and political reasons, the man is not going to prison, Garland is not THAT stupid.

Don’t get your hopes up, really.

The Trump supporters here have no comments against the beliefs of Nick Fuentes. Or the anti-Semitism by Kaya West.

Summary: every person here has had dinner where someone they know brought someone they don’t know.

That's a pretty stunning admission....Trump is so stupid he doesn't even check or vet those he has dinner with....even someone who thinks his son-in-law and daughter are vermin...

no one is responsible for the views of someone they have dinner with. and none of you leftists (or anyone else) even knew who this person was until your media told you to be offended.

Sure, invite a known anti-Semite and Neo-Nazi into your house for dinner - and you're not responsible...

Just proves he does indeed think they are "very fine people"...

Wonder what Trump buddy Bibi Netanyahu thinks of this confab...

6 ( +8 / -2 )

The fact (which you so desperately try to muddle) is that the Sega to leader of the GQP, a man you claim actually won the 2020 election (spoiler alert: he didn’t) let 2 known Anti-Semites one of whom also advocated denying women bottling rights and said that rape was no big deal, in his clubeven though he claims not to have known the guy. Yeah, that doesn’t happen even with a former potus .

Then he had a dinner where he fawned over the worse of the two. “This guy gets me!” He exclaimed.

Then he claims not to know the guy. He’s lying or he’s an idiot. (Actually he’s a lying idiot and he’s not even a good liar).

Never denounces him, just whines about it.

Never denounces anti-Semitism.

And you’re fine with that.

Got it.

No one here is an ex-president or running for office in 2024 if nominated. Visitors to Trump are not vetted by his security agents?

the most interesting thing is the media cant decided to go with white supremacist or Holocaust denier for this random person that Kanye brought that no one knows.

This site picked "white supremacist" I see.

But seeing as Kanye is actually Black, the white supremacist thing doesnt really make much sense.

I really would not expect that someone a Black brother brought to dinner with me would be a white supremacist.

So I think if it was found out that he was, the person bringing him would be to blame, not me? Not something I should be expected to expect.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

Sure, invite a known anti-Semite and Neo-Nazi into your house for dinner - and you're not responsible...

Fawned over? How would you know that?

Then he claims not to know the guy. He’s lying or he’s an idiot.

Prove it, if you can, I’ll apologize, because you’d be the first person to prove something no other human can.

Never denounces him, just whines about it. 

He has to denounce him? Why and more importantly, would you tone down your Trump hatred? If not, then it really doesn’t matter what you or anyone of us think, right?

Never denounces anti-Semitism. 

Yeah, the left are the last people to call anyone anti-Semitic

you have no comments about anti-Semitism or white supremacism or Holocaust denial. After the dinner when the story broke it seems Trump had nothing to say except deny he knew anything about them.

Dunno if you realize this, but it’s 2022, not 1964 (when the Democrats passed the Civil Rights Act starting the shift of Southern Whites to the GQP). 

Wrong, these are the people that invented the Klan.

https://homework.study.com/explanation/why-did-democrats-oppose-the-civil-rights-act-of-1960.html

Your “thoughts” are no more relevant than exclamations that Lincoln greed the slaves. 

He did, that’s a fact and who killed him? Not a Republican…l

And that’s not who the GQP are TODAY. Not by a long shot.

The Democrats are not the party of FDR, not by a long shot, in fact they embraced the tenants of socialism and communism, the very ideological that thousands of Americans died to keep off our shores

No, it’s not an accurate description of the Democratic Party today.

No, the history is worse actually.

As Trump said, Kanye seemed troubled and he wanted to understand what was going on and see if he could help in some way.

Yeah, that sounds like Trump. Always compassionate, always helping out others before himself. Lol

If Kanye showed up and was denied entry, the story would be "racist" Trump denied Black superstar Kanye West entry to Mar A Lago, wouldnt it?

I don’t know. It’s a hypothetical. More likely it would be “Trump denied racist weirdo superstar Kanye West entry to Mar A Lago”.

And Trump would gain a tiny bit of respect from those who abhor racism. MTG and Tucker might be upset though.

   It is acceptable that Trump's visitors are not vetted by his security?

I am not an ex-president of America who needs 24/7 security detail from terrorists and people looking to kill. I certainly would not invite anyone with anti-Semitic beliefs, like West.

Under federal law, Trump, his wife, Melania Trump, and their 14-year-old son are the only members of his immediate family entitled to Secret Service protection. Trump extended Secret Service protection to his adult children. The Secret Service spent $1.3m on hotel and transport costs protecting Donald Trump in the 12 months since he left office.

The Anti-Defamation League said Fuentes once "'jokingly' denied the Holocaust and compared Jews burnt in concentration camps to cookies in an oven.'"

Trump referred to Hispanics as an 'invasion of animals'. That's Hitler talk there, then he kidnapped and caged thousands of Hispanic children in concentration camps. Birds a feather. He associates and surrounds himself with hateful trash, his track record promotes hate and violence, he talks trash, he is TRASH. Racist, fascist, sexist, antisemitic, xenophobic, homophobic, egotistical, blasphemous antichrist, immature sociopathic trash.

Filth.

You turn the hosepipe on these types if they come to your door.

Mentally functioning Republicans should tear into Trump for this. The Jewish space laser crowd may like it but they belong in zoos.

Fascists do not belong in the Republican or Democratic parties. If the GOP is to truly survive it must gouge out the core of trumpism. Trump is a social/political/historical cancer on America. And his associations with this trash only furthers what he is truly is, he is worthless criminal trash.
