Many on the left continue to attemp to tie Trump’s administration to Russia and Clinton’s loss of the election. The mainstream media and political pundits continue to try and spin Clinton’s loss on “Russia” and continue their false narrative that Trump may have shared classified information with the Kremlin. Of course, the real narrative is that Clinton lost the election because of all her lies from Benghazi, to Emailgate, to the pay-to-play Clinton Foundation. There’s so much to add on top of that, including Clinton rigging the election and stealing the nomination from Bernie Sanders. Of course, the Sanders supporters couldn’t support her after that, but hey…the DNC, the Democrats and the MSM are not going to bring that up. There’s at least one Democratic representative who is trying to change the narrative.
Rep. Nina Turner is the former State Senator and Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Executive Committee Member from Ohio. Additionally, she was a supporter for Bernie Sanders. As you can imagine, that didn’t earn her many friends in the Democratic Party, in and outside of Ohio. Rep. Turner made headlines recently when she told reporters on CNN the truth. Truth, liberals and the MSM were not too happy hearing about.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Former Ohio state senator Nina Turner made headlines when she appeared on CNN over the weekend. Speaking bluntly on “The State of the Union,” Turner said that “no one in Ohio is asking about Russia,” The Daily Caller reported.
Turner, a Democrat, made the assertion while discussing reports alleging President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, attempted to set up a back channel with Russia.
Many on the left have attempted to tie Trump’s administration to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mainstream media and political pundits have speculated that Trump may have shared classified information with the Kremlin, and others have suggested Putin interfered with the election which allowed Trump to win against Hillary Clinton.
Nonetheless, no concrete evidence has been presented to back these claims.
When the hosts of “State of the Union” tried to turn the conversation to Russia (as usual), Turner told them that her former constituents are concerned about other issues.
“No one in Ohio is asking about Russia,” Turner stated. “I mean, we have to deal with this. It’s all on the minds of the American people. But if you want to know about people in Ohio — they want to know about jobs, they want to know about their children.”
Here’s Nina Turner:
She continued, “I was just in California where California folks, especially the national nurses, pushing for healthy California, single payer, Medicare for all kinds of things. I talked to a Boomer, a Baby Boomer who is an African-American Baby Boomer who lives here in D.C., Russia is not in his top five. He believes that both parties are failing.”
Turner said the American people have more critical things on their mind.
“If we were to go to Flint, they want to know how they’re going to get clean water and why 8,000 people are about the to lose their homes. We are preoccupied with this. It’s not that this is not important, but everyday Americans are being left behind because it’s Russia, Russia, Russia. Do we need all 535 members of the Congress to deal with Russia? Can some deal with some domestic issues?”
Amen! Amen! Amen!
Democrats and Republicans both need to MOVE ON! Clinton lost the election! Donald Trump is President! Get over it! Deal with it! We are! Trump is not perfect, but he is NOT Hillary….Thank God!
There are a few differences…Trump respects our military. Trump is pro-life. Trump believes in faith and returning our country to ‘In God We Trust’. Trump is also working hard against both Democrats and Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare. Most importantly President Trump is reducing regulations that have been strangling our economic engine. Jobs are returning. Jobs that are important to Americans like former Rep. Nina Turner and her constituents in Ohio.
Now, if the rest of the Democrats would let go of the false narrative ‘the Russians did it’…President Trump could move on with the real business of our country and help continue to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.
