Politics / Mike Pompeo a REAL POS

Pompeo curses out reporter after question on impeachment scandal: ‘Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?'

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cut an interview short, cursed out a reporter and bizarrely demanded that she point out Ukraine on a map after she asked him Friday about a matter at the heart of President Trump’s impeachment.

The hot-headed secretary exploded after NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly asked him whether he owed an apology to Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine who was abruptly removed by Trump last year after she expressed concern about his plot to pressure the country into opening investigations of his Democratic rivals.

“I agreed to come on your show today to talk about Iran,” Pompeo fumed.

But the reporter pointed out that she had confirmed with Pompeo’s staff that she would ask questions about Ukraine, in addition to Iran.

“I’ve defended every single person on this team. I’ve done what’s right for every single person on this team,” Pompeo insisted.

Asked for a specific instance in which Pompeo offered a defense for Yovanovitch, the secretary demurred.

“I’ve said all I’m going to say today,” he bristled before cutting the interview short and leaving the room.

But Pompeo wasn’t done.

Kelly said on the air that Pompeo brought her into his private living room after the mics were turned off and began shouting at her.

“He was not happy to have been questioned about Ukraine,” she said. “He asked, ‘do you think Americans care about Ukraine?’ He used the F-word in that sentence and many others."

Then came the map moment.

“He asked if I could find Ukraine on a map,” Kelly said. “I said ‘yes,’ and he called out for aides to bring us a map of the world with no writing. I pointed to Ukraine.  :clap: :clap: He put the map away. He said, ‘People will hear about this.’"

Pompeo is expected to travel to Ukraine next week.

A spokeswoman for the secretary did not return a request for comment.

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-gop-leader-in-texas-blames-racist-text-on-unfortunate-typo-20191210-vrqo5znl3fa7jaj6axrcddccnq-story.html

A Texas GOP leader is under fire over a months-old text message in which she used the N-word to refer to a fellow black Republican, an action she has blamed on “an unfortunate typo.”

Yolanda Waters, chairwoman of the Galveston County Republican Party, was texting a colleague when she referred to J.T. Edwards, another party leader, as a “typical n-g," according to screenshots of the March 27 exchange that surfaced online over the weekend.

Waters, who describes herself as a “Latina / African-American woman," has since faced widespread backlash and calls to resign even as she insists it was all a mistake.

“I usually type very fast, and in this case, I moved too fast to see that the word was there," she wrote in a statement posted on Facebook and shared with local media. “I made the typo because I did not proofread my text. I do not believe it is appropriate language to use in speaking about a fellow African-American."

Water did not say what she meant to type instead of the N-word. She did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday morning.


use the link at the top to read the full story

note:  She using ni88er, y04185 uses 'you people' constantly.  He also uses the condescending words of whites who slander Black people. See y04185 comments on Maxine Walters.

Also, his lack of clarity.  When you ask him a question, rarely is an answer coming or it will be one word, as if he's on a witness stand and doesn't want to incriminate himself.  Oops too late on that.
