Palmer Report: Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets schooled by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez


Republican politicians and pundits just keep lining up to dishonestly attack new Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it just keeps working out poorly for them. The latest member of the GOP to take on AOC in a battle of wits is the eternally witless Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and well, you can already figure out who won and who didn’t.


Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on Fox News and slammed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s climate change plan, saying “I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority.” This is far from the first time in which Sanders has severely twisted Christianity to fit her distinctly un-Christ-like political view, but rarely has it gone quite this poorly for her.


Ocasio-Cortez promptly fired back on Twitter with three Bible verses that spell out how God would actually want us to deal with climate change and the planet:
Genesis 1: God looked on the world & called it good not once, not twice, but seven times.
Genesis 2: God commands all people to “serve and protect” creation.
Leviticus: God mandates that not only the people, but the land that sustains them, shall be respected.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez then added “You shouldn’t need a Bible to tell you to protect our planet, but it does anyway.” Not surprisingly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has had nothing to say in response. It’s still not quite clear why so many prominent figures in the the Republican Party and the Trump regime keep taking on the same freshman Congresswoman. But it is clear that they keep losing whenever they try it.

After Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó declared himself president, the U.S. recognized him as the country’s legitimate leader while Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro severed diplomatic ties with Washington, the New York Times reports. Following the U.S. recognition of Guaidó’s presidency, other countries followed suit, including Canada, Argentina, Brazil, and other Central and South American states.
President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen delayed his scheduled February 7th testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, referencing threats against his family from President Trump and Rudy Giuliani, according to the Wall Street Journal. Following the postponement of his House testimony, Cohen was subpoenaed to privately testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on February 12th, details the Journal.
After a tit-for-tat exchange on Wednesday in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rescinded the invitation for Trump to deliver the State of the Union on January 29th, Trump announced he will wait until the government shutdown ends to give the address, the BBC reports.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump spirals out of control as Senate bill fails to reopen the government


Last night Donald Trump gave up on one of his key pieces of potential leverage in the government shutdown when he caved to Nancy Pelosi’s demand that the State of the Union address be delayed until after the shutdown is over. Today things didn’t go anyone’s way when both bills before the Senate ended up failing. Trump is spiraling out of control.


Everyone knew that the first Senate bill, to reopen the government with funding for Trump’s imaginary border wall, would fail. But there was some hope heading into today that the second Senate bill, to reopen the government without any wall funding, might pass. That failed to happen, meaning that Trump is still stuck with his shutdown and without his wall, and America is stuck without a government.


Before the vote took place, Donald Trump posted this whacked out tweet: “Nancy just said she “just doesn’t understand why?” Very simply, without a Wall it all doesn’t work. Our Country has a chance to greatly reduce Crime, Human Trafficking, Gangs and Drugs. Should have been done for decades. We will not Cave!” It seemed to be a signal to Senate Republicans that they’d better not vote to reopen the government without his wall, and sure enough, they caved accordingly.

But the true spiraling chaos came when Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted this after both votes failed: “Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Chuck Schumer are meeting now to see whether or not they can work out of the deadlock. As was made clear to Senator Lindsay Graham, the 3 week CR would only work if there is a large down payment on the wall.” In other words, Donald Trump is still insistent on riding his wall demands all the way to the bottom. This shutdown is harming Americans, but it’s finishing Trump off in real time.
