Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) Walks Back His Comments that He was “Pulling” for Trump

REID SAID WHAT? OH WAIT, NO HE DIDN’T, HE’S TAKING HIS LOVE-FEST WITH TRUMP BACK … 

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says of Donald Trump, “Look, we’ve gotten along fine. With that bunch of people running, I’m kind of pulling for him.”

Hmm, looks like Harry Reid got the collective stink eye and an ear full from Democrats after he made the comment that he was pulling for Donald Trump. Reid no sooner made the comment when he was forced an hour later to hold a presser stating that he was joking. Senate Minority Leader Reid said, “Obviously it wasn’t very funny, Schumer kicked me in the back [of the] leg,” he said. “I’m watching with pleasure the Republicans fumbling around. … I just think it has made a mockery of our Republican Party.”

Makes you really wonder, doesn’t it?

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) backpedaled Wednesday after joking that, among the current Republican presidential field, he’s considering backing Donald Trump for the nomination.

“Look, we’ve gotten along fine,” the Democratic leader told reporters. “With that bunch of people running, I’m kind of pulling for him.”

Reid made the remark after the GOP front-runner touted his ability to work with top Democrats in Congress, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader.

Asked about Trump’s statement, Reid added, “Oh, I remember the good old days when he did a fundraiser or two for me.”

Reid quickly walked back his comments, apologizing for joking about supporting Trump — whom he called a “hateful demagogue who will do immeasurable damage to our country.”

“There’s some things I shouldn’t joke about,” he said from the Senate floor. “The danger of a Donald Trump candidacy to our country is not a joke.”

On MSNBC Donald Trump Touts Friendship With Democrats Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Chuck Schumer

DONALD TRUMP SAID WHAT!!!

Donald Trump in an MSNBC interview that he gets along with three of the most vile Democrats out there, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Chucky Schumer. Trump then went on to say that he would work with Democrats. WHAT!!! Dude, if elected you are about to be handed the presidency with a GOP controlled House and Senate, and you are going to be working with Democrats? Sorry, but the only way we are ever going to be able to fix this country is do nothing what Pelosi, Reid and Schumer want. It is their polices and Obama’s that have been driven down our throats without our buy in that have caused the damage.

“I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid. And frankly, if I weren’t running for office I’d be able to deal with her [Pelosi], I’d be able to deal with Reid, I’d be able to deal with anybody.”

The Hill:

People better take a good listen to what this man is saying before the vote. He has only praise for these three shrill Democrats but can say nothing good about his Republican presidential contenders?

“I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi — I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the House minority leader.

“Reid’s going to be gone. I’ve always had a decent relationship with Reid,” Trump said, referring to Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader. “I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid.”

Trump said he thought he’d get along with “just about everybody,” including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), likely to be the next Senate Democratic leader, who Trump said he was “close to … in many in ways.”

The real estate mogul is targeting GOP rival Ted Cruz, against whom Trump is running neck and neck in Iowa a week out from the state’s caucuses. Trump argues that the Texas senator won’t work with others in Congress and that while both candidates have positioned themselves as political outsiders, Trump argues even Republicans don’t want Cruz.

“He is a guy that nobody likes and nobody trusts,” Trump said on MSNBC before reiterating that Cruz “is a nasty guy, he says things that are very nasty, so I have to be nastier than him and it’s just one of those things.”

“I’ve been in politics all my life, I’ve been dealing with politicians all my life,” Trump said of whether he would have any friends in Congress.

Mark Levin Radio Show: Hillary Clinton & Harry Reid Were Not Always for Open Borders for Illegals … “Adamently Against Illegal Immigrants” … “No Sane Country Would” Reward Illegals

NO ONE POINTS OUT THE HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT LIKE MARK LEVINE …

During yesterdays Mark Levine Radio Show (July 7), conservative talk show host Mark Levine not only spoke the truth about illegal immigration, self-deportation and how illegals are responsible for breaking up their own family. The below VIDEO is a must listen. Levine brings up some hot button topics that of course today’s Republican politicians try and avoid like the plague.

Harry Reed used to be one of the most aggressive, anti-immigration, anti-illegal immigration Senator. Levine used some past Harry Reed comments where Reed says, “no sane country would offer rewards for illegals.” Imagine that. I guess the United States today has become an insane country with Reed’s premise. So what happened to change Reed’s mind, power? The comments from 1993 Harry Reed sounds like, well, it sounds like Donald Trump.

Listen at your own risk, Can you handle the truth?

Outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Says of GOP Presidential Contenders, “I Think They’re all Losers.”

GOOD RIDDANCE HARRY REID …

Honestly, no one is going to miss this miserable man when he leaves the Senate. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood that the candidates running for president are all losers. What a miserable individual. It is exactly this type of crotchety, mean spirited behavior that was evident during his run as Senate Majority leader. What ever happened to liberal tolerance? As Taylor Swift sings, “Why do you have to be so mean?”

The Republican field for president in 2016 is full of “losers,” Harry Reid said in an interview that aired Wednesday.

The Senate minority leader, a boxer in his youth, delivered some spirited blows while talking with CNBC’s John Harwood, calling his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell “a lump of coal” and slamming alternative theories about how he sustained his eye injury.

Reid also said he doesn’t really care who wins the Republican nomination for president. “I think they’re all losers,” he said.

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Defends His Lies of GOP Presidential Candidate Not Paying His Taxes … “Romney Didn’t Win, Did He?”

There are lying, pathetic, disingenuous politicians and then there are scumbag liars like former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid …

If you want to know why Washington, DC and federal politics are so screwed up today and so polarized, you need to look no further than Sen. Dingy Harry (D-NV). In an interview on CNN with Dana Bash, Harry Reid not only refused to apologize for lying to the American people while standing on the US Senate floor that Mitt Romney had not paid his taxes, he seemed to relish and gloat that his lie caused Romney not to win the 2012 Presidential election. Reid’s smug little comment during the interview of “Romney didn’t win, did he” makes one want to vomit. Reid is unapologetic and showed no remorse for his lie. In fact, he is gleeful. What a miserable, little man. But in the end, this is how Democrats win elections … THEY LIE. And the American people are too apathetic to care.

Thankfully, this piece of human excrement is retiring from the US Senate as he has done this country no favors. Reid will for ever be remembered for being nothing more than carrying Barack Obama’s water and blocking the GOP at every turn in presenting bills to the Senate so to protect the Obama agenda. Reid will also be known for creating a poisonous atmosphere and one of the most divisive US Senates ever. GOOD RIDDANCE.

WAPO:

Reid’s claim, which seemed outrageous on its face, was widely dismissed by fact-checkers. Wrote WaPo’s Fact Checker Glenn Kessler in a piece giving Reid four Pinocchios for the claim:

Without seeing Romney’s taxes, we cannot definitively prove Reid  incorrect. But tax experts say his claim is highly improbable. Reid also has made no effort to explain why his unnamed source would be credible. So, in the absence of more information, it appears he has no basis to make his incendiary claim.

Moreover, Reid holds a position of great authority in the U.S. Congress.  He should hold himself to a high standard of accuracy when making claims about political opponents.

And yet, the clip above shows Reid, in an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, not only refusing to apologize for the claim but defending it — in a very weird way.

“Romney didn’t win, did he?” Reid said in response to Bash’s question of whether he regretted what he had said about Romney.
