3 GOP Congressmen Flew Commercial After Flying With Trump On Air Force One

Description

Three Minnesota congressmen took a commercial Delta flight just two days after being on Air Force One with President Donald Trump. Business Insider reports Republican Reps. Pete Stauber, Tom Emmer, and Jim Hagedorn flew on the same flight to Washington DC on Friday night. That was just several hours after President Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus. Now, they're facing backlash for their choice to do so. These congressmen's stupidity and disregard for the well-being of their fellow passengers is staggering. Ken Martin Chairman of the Minnesota Democratic Party But the trio is passing the buck and blaming the airline. Hagedorn claimed they'd informed the airline of the situation beforehand and that it was Delta's 'decision to fly based upon the facts.' All three congressmen later tested negative for COVID-19. The White House is having a major coronavirus outbreak. In addition to Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, 10 GOP officials have tested positive for the virus.

  • Trump To Vulnerable GOP Senators: It's Not You, It's Me. All Me.

    As President Donald Trump crosses the country in a last-minute frenzy of campaign stumping, he's given short shrift to down-ballot Republican senators. Speaking in Arizona on Wednesday, CNN reports Trump offered a mortifyingly dismissive introduction to the state's vulnerable GOP senator, Martha McSally. Martha, just come up fast. Fast. Fast. Come on. Quick. You got one minute! One minute, Martha! They don't want to hear this, Martha. Come on. Let's go. Quick, quick, quick. Come on. Let's go. US President Donald J. Trump Polls have shown McSally facing a tough reelection battle against her Democratic challenger, former astronaut Mark Kelly. And as they have in other tighter-than-expected Senate races, Trump's divisive behavior has been blamed for dragging down McSally's prospects. While she is still courting Trump supporters, she refused to say whether she was proud of the president during a recent Senate debate with Kelly.

  • GOP Incumbent Rep. Doug Collins Slammed For 'Putrescent' Campaign Ads

    Georgia's Republican Rep. Doug Collins served in the House for seven years and has raised his political profile as the ranking member on the House Judiciary Committee. However, Business Insider reports his reelection campaign is under fire for showing numerous ads featuring Collins wearing his US Air Force uniform. Collins serves as a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserves. He previously deployed to Iraq as a chaplain. Several of Collins' images appeared to violate the Defense Department's regulations intended to protect the military's apolitical status. Ads must indicate their retired or reserve status and include a disclaimer stating that the Defense Department does not necessarily endorse them. Attorney Michael Weinstein is the founder of the non-profit group Military Religious Freedom Foundation. He described the ads as a 'shameful' violation. He's like the sole star of these ads. That's not biographical. That's political. He's using it for a partisan, political agenda. It's pathetic. It's putrescent. Michael Weinstein, Attorney Founder, Military Religious Freedom Foundation
