Former Ohio state senator Nina Turner slammed her own party over the weekend in an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
As most Democrats bash President Donald Trump and his unproven ties to Russia, Turner made it clear that she is more interested in jobs.
The hosts of the “fake news” program kept trying to get Turner to talk about Russia, making it seem like it was more important than keeping the American people employed.
“No one in Ohio is asking about Russia,” Turner stated. “I mean, we have to deal with this. It’s all on the minds of the American people. But if you want to know about people in Ohio — they want to know about jobs, they want to know about their children.”
“I was just in California where California folks, especially the national nurses, pushing for healthy California, single payer, Medicare for all kinds of things. I talked to a Boomer, a Baby Boomer who is an African-American Baby Boomer who lives here in D.C., Russia is not in his top five. He believes that both parties are failing.”
“If we were to go to Flint, they want to know how they’re going to get clean water and why 8,000 people are about the to lose their homes. We are preoccupied with this. It’s not that this is not important, but everyday Americans are being left behind because it’s Russia, Russia, Russia. Do we need all 535 members of the Congress to deal with Russia? Can some deal with some domestic issues?”
Well said. All the Democrats care about is manufacturing controversy. They have no interest in fixing America’s problems and they are more than happy to keep their voters stuck on social benefits.
