Democrat Jacky Rosen Allegedly Told Colleague Kyrsten Sinema to “Watch Your A**” After Applauding Trump

Published

on

Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema was one of the only Senators in her caucus to applaud Trump celebrating the passage of live-saving ‘Right to Try’ legislation on Tuesday’s State of the Union Address.

It seems that taking the audacity of rising to applaud an element of President Trump’s address rubbed at least one Democratic Senator the wrong way.

As cameras captured the scene of Sinema clapping, Nevada Senator Jacky Rosen was seen speaking to her in a curt and seemingly displeased manner. Rosen seems to have mouthed the words “watch your ass” before looking away in an annoyed manner.

Sinema in turn nodded in a dismissive manner, not deterred from reacting to one element of the President’s address by her colleague’s intimidation tactics.

Having come from a light red or purple state, Sinema may not have the political luxury of full partisan opposition to President Trump’s policy agenda that legislators from reliably blue states can afford. Sinema had also declined to participate in a stunt that involved female Democrats dressing in all white with the hopes of making a political statement against Trump.

Other positive reactions to the President’s address were few and far between among Democratic legislators. The form of intimidation employed by Rosen may have been effective in silencing other Democrats sympathetic to common-sense policies supported by Trump, such as Right to Try. It updates medical regulations to allow very sick or terminally ill patients to try experimental drugs not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Apparently giving sick people fighting for the lives the right to choose between medical options is unacceptable grandstanding to senior Democrats.

Principled opposition, or staged and opportunistic political theatre?

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

Published

John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.

Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.

Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”

@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.

The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”

Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”

What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.

And there could be much more where that came from…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
