Sanders Questions: Screw The Mooch Edition

“Tired of all the winning, yet? President Trump promised to hire the best people but all we’ve gotten from this White House is a string of failures. Anthony Scaramucci is just the latest casualty. The White House is a disaster from top down and anyone who thinks that John Kelly can right this ship is delusional.” –American Bridge Rapid Response Director Emily Aden 

Here are some key questions for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who will certainly have her hands full this afternoon: 

1. With all of the shakeups at the White House, do you expect you’ll still have a job tomorrow? 

2. What does President Trump have to say to those who will suffer from higher premiums if he follows through with this threat to end Obamacare payments? 

3. What is the Trump administration going to do to other than threaten China on Twitter to address the growing threat of a nuclear […]

Editorials Roundup: Unpresidential Edition

State and local editorial boards captured the outrage of Americans all across the country this past week. First, President Trump and the Senate Republicans failed- again- in their most recent attempt to rip health care away from millions of Americans all to give tax cuts to millionaires. Their effort can only be described as an embarrassing spectacle that culminated in forcing a vote on a bill no one read, without a hearing, in the dead of night.

Then, President Trump gave a highly inappropriate speech to the Boy Scouts of America- sparking such disgust that the organization actually had to apologize. If that wasn’t enough, President Trump desperately tried to change the subject from his failings by instituting an unconstitutional ban on transgender military service members.

President Trump is openly floating the possibility using a recess appointment for a new Attorney General, but such a move would be yet another example of obstruction of justice from a President who is already neck-deep in scandal. First, he tried to block the Russia investigation by firing FBI Director James Comey, but that only made things worse. Now, Trump appears to be shopping for an Attorney General to serve as an accomplice – someone willing to join the President in obstructing justice by ending Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. Unfortunately for Trump, this plan won’t work either, as the Supreme Court and prominent Republicans have already made clear.

Here’s what President Trump should expect to hear from his fellow Republicans if he tries to make an unconstitutional recess appointment:

Sen. Mitch McConnell Called Recess Appointments A “Dangerous Threat To The Rule Of Law.” “It represents a clear, clear rebuke […]

Sanders Questions: Vote-a-Rama Edition

American Bridge Rapid Response Director calls on White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to answer the following questions: 

1. Does President Trump support a “skinny repeal” bill even though it would throw 16 million Americans off their insurance and even cause four million Americans to lose insurance through their employer? 

2. Is the Trump administration threatening to retaliate against all Republican Senators for voting ‘no’ on health care proposals by stalling other policy and personnel priorities as reported in Alaska? 

3. Senator Grassley warned last night that the Judiciary Committee will not confirm a new Attorney General. Will you confirm President Trump won’t attempt a recess appointment to replace Jeff Sessions? 

4. Does President Trump agree with Anthony Scaramucci that Reince Preibus is behind leaks to the press? 

5. Yesterday you said it was up to the Pentagon to determine how to implement President Trump’s transgender ban. Today the Pentagon punted back to the […]
