Gov. Bill Weld plans to foil Trump’s reelection with liberal policies, if April Ryan will excuse his French
Pro choice Gov. Bill Weld plans to foil the future of Pres. Trump by presenting a liberal agenda that includes completely rebuilding one of the severely undeveloped countries, like Haiti. The same day as the Mueller hearing, July 24, nine Democrat candidates and liberal Republican candidate Bill Weld introduced themselves to the majority black audience at the NAACP convention in Detroit, MI.
Though he is a Republican in name only, he still spoke last, because after all, the black people in the audience are supposed to vote Democrat, not Republican.
Weld is running as a liberal foil against Trump, since he has no hope of getting the Republican nomination. Still, he says he is planing on winning a smaller New England state, New Hampshire.
The candidate event was hosted by April Ryan, who herself is a partisan commentator on CNN. Ryan was often at odds with former Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, and played the role of the combative black grandstander.
Like other Democrat candidates, Weld also calls Trump a racist, and even a raging racist. There is no push back on this from people like Ryan. It's common for liberals like CNN’s Don Lemon consistently use the same adjective, despite the fact that the president has done as much or more for blacks as any previous president, including Barach Obama.
Trump has invited dozens of black leaders, including pastors and business leaders to the White House and has even prayed with a group of black pastors on one occasion. He commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender, a week after Kim Kardashian West pleaded her case during an Oval Office meeting with Trump. He also posthumously pardoned boxer Jack Jackson, which Obama had the opportunity to do, but did not.
Jackson, the first black heavyweight champion, was convicted in 1913 for violating a Jim Crow-era law that made it illegal to transport a white woman across state lines “for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose.”
For the May 24, 2018 ceremony, Trump was joined in the Oval Office by actor Sylvester Stallone, Lennox Lewis, and current heavy weight champion Deontay Wilder. The event is on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5u_GKzXWXc.
Weld claims that Trump and his father excludes blacks from their apartments and housing decades ago.
“He’s a complete and thorough going racist,” Weld said. “We have ways of keeping people like those out of our projects.”
Weld said if the Republican Party backs Trump it will be called the party of racism in America.
At the same time, Weld said he supports school choice and charter schools, policies that are supported by Republicans but not teacher unions or the National Education Association, or most other Democrats. When Obama first took office, he took action against school choice programs in Washington, D.C., in order to keep the teacher unions happy, since school choice programs take funding away from public schools.
In regard to the Mueller Report, Weld said Robert Mueller was his deputy in the Justice Department.
“I read every word of the Mueller Report,” he said.
Weld, along with more than 1,000 former prosecutors, signed a document that agrees with supposed obstruction of justice charges n the Mueller Report.
“It paints a picture of a one man scofflaw and a crime wave,” he said. “The man is a moral leper.”
Weld, who said he worked on the Nixon impeachment hearings, said the House of Representatives should start an impeachment inquiry. The impeachment process would probably take more than a year, and would continue after the 2020 election, he said.
“The fear that he would be exonerated again is a baseless fear,” Weld said.
Weld said he has been prochoice since he started in politics. “I intend as part of my coalition, to appeal to all women to vote for me,” he said. “Mr. Trump is associated with the atrocious legislation coming out of Georgia and Alabama which treats women as chattel.”
He said he “could not vote for the Hyde Amendment,” which keeps federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.
Ryan revealed her stance on global warming: “It impacts us all, just look at (Hurricane) Katrina,” meaning because blacks live in New Orleans and Louisiana, it impacts blacks as well as whites.
Like Ryan, Weld is also a believer in global warming. “If nothing is done to lower the CO2 levels, the polar ice cap will melt and it will disproportionately impact people of color,” he said. It’s hard to see how this would disproportionately affect blacks, since as many whites live in low-lying coastal areas.
Weld said the United States should help Haiti rebuild, not just provide humanitarian aid.
Fixing Haiti “would be a drop in the bucket compared to what FEMA spends every hear, he said. “I would pull the lever and say, ‘That’s my priority,’ he said.
As for Africa, Weld said it is “the continent of the future. There are lot so African countries with annual growth rates of ten, 12, 16 percent,” he said. “People don’t know that.”
Weld again used Trump’s words to refer to Africa as having “shit-hole” countries, saying it was French. “That’s Donald Trump,” he said. Ryan, not getting the joke, said “that’s not a French word." “Oh, I thought it was,” Weld said, making her sound stupid.
He was referring to often used phrase, pardon my French when using a curse word. Perhaps in doing so, Weld is showing that he is not just condescending, but also a racist, since the majority of blacks in the audience probably did not understand what he meant either.
Weld said President Thabo Mbeki gave him the South Africa tie that he was wearing, which happened to be Trump red.
He said he favored focusing on income inequality instead of giving attention to reparations, and justice reform legislation promoted by Sen. Cory Booker.
As to the nomination, Weld said he would not try to convert Republicans and others are were already sold on Trump.
“I’m not going to try to convert the Republican Committee, the state organizations,” he said. “They are already in lockstep (with Trump).” “I’m speaking to the millennials, who will get murdered by the debt, by the climate change, to women everywhere,” he said.
Weld’s plan is to weaken Trump by encouraging people to vote for him in the primaries. “We can send a message to Donald J. Trump as he packs his golf clubs, and that is, ‘You’re fired.’”
The Democrat candidates at the event included, in order of appearance, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, former Vice President Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Mayor Julian Castro, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, and Sen. Kamala Harris.
