Arizona Democratic Party Chair Claims President Trump Has “Aligned Himself With ISIS”

Felicia Rotellini has made the sensational claim just as President Trump ordered an operation to kill the leader of ISIS.

The Chairwoman of the Arizona Democratic Party claimed that President Donald Trump is in league with ISIS, a remark made just as after President Trump ordered an operation to kill the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Felicia Rotellini made the claim on Saturday, just as the President was preparing to oversee the operation in Syria in the Situation Room at the White House. Watch here:

The remarks come as incredibly ridiculous in light of the raid, in which al-Baghdadi committed suicide in a tunnel when trapped by American special forces.

Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward slammed Rotellini for the over-the-top and sensational accusation, butting in to call out the allegation of ISIS allegiances as false while sitting on the same panel at a Clean Elections event.

In a statement issued later, Chairwoman Ward called on Arizona Democrats to reject Rotellini’s anti-American accusation of ISIS loyalties against President Trump.

It is extremely disconcerting to hear the top Democrat in Arizona slander and malign an innocent person for being aligned with the world’s most evil terrorists, let alone the President of the United States. While fearmongering from the Left is expected up to a point, we have to draw the line somewhere if they’re going to refuse to police themselves. Baseless statements like those made by the chair of the Arizona Democrat party are wildly irresponsible and not rooted in reality.

Rotellini’s accusation apparently is based upon the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria, which she equivocates as inherent alignment with ISIS.

Rotellini owes an apology to the President for falsely claiming he supports one of the most bloodthirsty terrorist organizations the world has ever known- an accusation ironically made just as the President oversaw the killing of its leader. She also owes an apology to the families of ISIS’s victims for cheapening their deaths at the hand of the cult for a simplistic, empty and knee-jerk reactionary political point.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
