So our illustrious former Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid tried to make Republican Front Runner Donald Trump look bad in the eyes of his supporters by saying that Trump did two fundraising parties for him, but at the end it was Harry Reid who looks even worse than what people had already thought of him.
“Oh, I remember the good old days when Donald Trump did a fundraising or two for me,” Reid said before immediately assuring reporters he was just pulling their legs.
True or false, the reality is that Senator Harry Reid is the one who has suffered the consequences of his “ humorous” statement because it proves one more time that most politicians, and those on Capitol Hill are not immune, are greedy and accept money from anyone that gives them money for whatever purpose they may have in mind when money is donated to a PAC, or a campaign contribution is given to a candidate’s political coffer, especially from a different party’s ideology.
The fact is that not everyone in Nevada was surprised by Senator Reid accepting campaign contributions from anyone, regardless of who that donor was, because Harry Reid has been, and is, loyal only to Harry Reid.
The only good thing about politicians is that they know how to take punches and Harry Reid is no exception because he used to be a fighter and knows how to take punches well, as long as later on down the road he is allowed to apologize to whom ever he tried to insult or hurt.
Remember when Harry Reid was the majority leader and he made some crude comments about President Barack Obama and he later had to apologize to his new best friend, the President of the United States.
Donald Trump, Reid said, is a “hateful demagogue who will do immeasurable damage to our country.” He then apologized.
“He [Reid] was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,’ Journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann reported the remarks in their new book, “Game Change.”
It seems like our illustrious Senator is as used to squeezing favors from his scary friend as he is in apologizing for indiscretions and a very loose tongue.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid made an outrageous allegation that GOP nominee Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes for 10 years.
This was not a slip of the tongue; it was a calculated lie that Reid repeated several times in an attempt to pressure Romney into releasing tax returns for years prior to 2010, Journalist and Communications Strategist Ayobami Olugbemiga wrote in The Blog.
The people of Nevada have allowed Harry Reid to manipulate the system, the scenario and the time to what is better to Harry Reid spreading baseless allegations with no concern for the truth and the consequences of his actions as long as he wins in the end.
What is more scary and despicable is that regardless of how many times he apologizes for his slips of the tongue, his actions and lies, he shows no remorse; and when asked about Romney’s Tax issue by the media, his response was “He did not win, did he?” and went on with his life disregarding whatever the end results may have been.
For years the local media has covered up for Harry Reid’s lies and game-playing while the Las Vegas Tribune has exposed him and his actions every time we had the opportunity to learn of his off-kilter actions — and we have paid the price for that.
Just not long ago this newspaper pointed out some of Harry Reid’s misspoken moments when our own Alexandra Cohen wrote that Senator Harry Reid shocked the Asian Chamber and Press as he wished Ed Uehling “Good Luck” in the election, then slammed the incumbent as “nothing but a coward”!
Only Harry! Only our Senior Senator and Senate Majority Leader, fourth in line to the Presidency, could put his foot so far into his mouth so many times within an hour!
Only Harry could lump his own protégé, Ruben Kihuen, into a group, the entire Nevada legislature, which he labeled “THE LEGISLATURE, THEY’RE ALL A BUNCH OF COWARDS”; and then, when one of the leaders of the Asian Chamber of Commerce, Terry Wong, was introduced to give him a gift, he responded, ‘All day today I haven’t been able to keep my Wongs straight.’
But the people of Nevada seem to forget and forgive Harry Reid as well as the present resident of the White House, who may have learned from Senator Harry Reid how to go around apologizing to the world.
