“He is only the president, I think in his view, of those who voted for him,” the Democrat tells “Meet the Press.”
WASHINGTON — California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff dismissed President Donald Trump’s response to the destructive Golden State fires, accusing him of threatening to withhold federal disaster funds for political reasons.
In an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sunday, Schiff lambasted Trump’s recent tweets blaming the devastation on “gross mismanagement of the forests” and threatening the state to “remedy now, or no more Fed payments.”
“For the president, at a time where people are facing utter disaster, to be making a statement like this, making a threat like this, just goes to show how little he understands the job he has, that he would be punitive at a time like this rather than coming to the defense of people facing the worst disaster of their lives,” Schiff said.
The Democratic congressman added that he believes the president’s motivation, and threat, is political.
“This is a president who, more than any other, is punitive,” he said. “He is only the president, I think in his view, of those who voted for him.” Schiff added that Trump couldn’t “care less” about “the rest” of the nation.

It is what happens when a minority of voters put him in the office for one sole qualification – that Trump is a racist just as they are.

It’s all about Trump and when it isn’t about Trump it’s about his perceived enemies.

Be cheered guys. Minnesota just sent to the House two fire breathing Muslim women.
The 2018 midterm will bring many new faces to Washington, but few will find as much adoration as Ilhan Omar. One of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, Omar, who will represent Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, is a Somali refugee with a celebrity aura and an uplifting story.
What went curiously unmentioned in all the flattering post-election coverage, however, was that Omar, who replaces Keith Ellison — a former acolyte of anti-Semitic minister Louis Farrakhan — also has some exotic notions about the Jewish people.
In a 2012 tweet, for instance, the Democrat explained that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.”
Meanwhile, the other Muslim woman headed to Congress is Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants who wants to cut aid to the Jewish state because supporting it “doesn’t fit the values of our country.”
But one of them is cute as hell:

Wrong again Mark, Minnesota is sending ONE Muslim woman. The other is from Michigan which you would have known if you had read your own article.
If figures that a misogynist would think of appearance more than qualifications and both are well qualified. But don’t worry, you’re not alone. Trump is pissed off about it too. Oh, I doubt very seriously that either would allow that asshole to grab them no matter what he thinks his entitlements are.
