Reid uses the floor of the Senate to incite hate against Trump

Harry Reid took to the floor of the Senate Tuesday to lambaste the stupid people who elected Donald Trump president — via the Electoral College and not the popular vote as he accurately noted, though not much else he said was.

He then said the election of Trump has caused an outbreak of hate crimes, even though one of those turned out to be a hoax and another was committed by a couple of guys with long criminal records who said the other guy started it. Most of the rest were graffiti, waving of Confederate flags or disrespectful or hateful comments — upsetting perhaps, but hardly crimes.

Much of the rest of Reid’s comments were about people spontaneously expressing fears and anxiety about Trump. He called for Trump to heal the nation while he poured fuel on the fire.

Trump also criticized Republicans for blocking spending on infrastructure, even though Trump has repeatedly promised to spend money on infrastructure and even though past such spending has failed stimulate the economy.

Apparently every ugly comment can to lain on the head of Trump, but Reid has no responsibility for the rioters protesting Trump’s election.

He wants to hold Trump accountable but no Democrats. He says people are frightened because of Trump’s election. Who is fueling that fear?

Reid also accused one of Trump’s appointees of being a white nationalist, whatever that is.

Reid’s words were self-contradictory.

John Cornyn of Texas responded:


There is no excuse for some of the things Trump has said and there is ample reason to be leery of how he will behave as president, but Reid’s comments are counterproductive.

    Here’s what our President-elect had to say back when Obama was elected : “As soon as Obama’s re-election victory was projected, Trump went on a tweeting frenzy, calling for a “revolution” of sorts, and putting on his best election inspector glasses to proclaim that the entire thing was a “sham.”

    Turnabout is fair play.

  2. Rincon, living in the past like all progressives. Remind yourself Trump was a Democrat then. Reid is a disgrace and should be sanctioned as unfit for office. The problem is Reid is not going away he is just side lining himself and grooming another Reid clone.

    “Trump has repeatedly promised to spend money on infrastructure and even though past such spending has failed stimulate the economy.”

    Right, But note that (far as I heard) he didn’t say spending money on infrastructure was for *stimulating the economy*. He said it was for *repairing the infrastructure*.

  4. OK, creating jobs then.

  5. Bruce Feher says:

    Soon America will be done with the petty little weasel Reid but what about Nevada?

  6. Rincon says:

    “Living in the past like all progressives” is a contradiction in terms. Check your dictionary.

    So a quote from 4 years ago is no longer valid? Wow, you must be a millennial. Perhaps you believe that Trump has undergone a major personality change within the last 4 years. Help me here. Since 4 year old comments are no longer permitted, at what age do you judge them to be acceptable? Is 2 years OK? 6 months maybe?

  7. Steve says:

    Rincon, what the hell? You would have been one of the first to claim Harry Reid “evolved”

    Are you now say Trump is incapable of doing much the same?

  8. And the Piece de Resistance…

  9. Trust me when I say…January 20th CAN’T COME SOON ENOUGH!

    Go away, Greid! Just go away!

    You’re thinking of someone else, Steve. I don’t pay a lot of attention to Reid, but I have a lot of friends and acquaintances that I’ve known for decades. Very few have changed substantially during the time I’ve known them. I’m can’t see why I should presume that Trump suddenly turned into a new man over a four year period.

    I would have hoped you would have castigated Steve for making up positions for you. You’re obviously above that though. Still, responding to Steve, as if he either has any ability to understand what you’re saying, or hoping that he evolves enough (one day far in the future) to understand what you’re saying seems….naïve at best.

    Patrick is back!

    Enjoying the Republican takeover, I bet….they glue your head back together, cupcake?
