Twitter Agog At Trump Whopper That Californians Are 'Rioting' Over Sanctuary Cities




 

President Donald Trump insisted Saturday at a Nevada campaign rally that Californians are "rioting" in protest of sanctuary cities.

No one knew what he was talking about.

Twitter was dumbfounded.

Trump also again derided black congresswoman Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, as a "low IQ individual," an insult he largely reserves for her and one that others have called racist.

Trump was stumping for Nevada GOP Sen. Dean Heller, and blasted both Waters and Heller's Democratic rival in November's election, Rep. Jacky Rosen, for their support of what he termed "deadly" sanctuary cities ― municipalities where local officials don't cooperate with federal authorities to deport undocumented immigrants.

"A lot of people in California don't want" sanctuary cities, Trump said. "They're rioting now; they wanna get out of their sanctuary cities ... They're demanding they be released from sanctuary cities." (Check out the video above.)

No one's rioting in California to escape sanctuary cities.

Stunned Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale noted in a tweet that Trump is "now inventing nonexistent domestic riots."

Ted Westrup, a spokesman for California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), told Dale that "Trump and truth have long had a troubled relationship. These comments, frankly, don't merit a response."

Other Twitter users were furious or stunned by Trump's comments, while some expected nothing less from the president. Several tweets checked in from all over California with the exact same report: No riots.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the newly confirmed US attorney general should be the person who decides whether to publicly release the much-anticipated Russia report, which could be completed as early as next week. The remarks came as CNN reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has headed the probe since May 2017, could deliver his final report next week, possibly when Trump travels to Asia for his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Asked at the White House whether Mueller should release the text while the president is out of the country, a subdued Trump said "that will be totally up to the new attorney general," Bill Barr.
