Republican Governor sounds off on Trump’s riot response, says it’s ‘not helpful’

Republican Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan betrayed President Trump in a CNN interview on Sunday, attacking the way Trump has responded to the violent protests breaking out all over the nation. 

“I think one of the most important things that a leader can do right now, and I went through this in 2015 during the riots in Baltimore, one of my primary focuses was to try to lower the temperature,” Hogan told host Jake Tapper. 

Amid the devastating violence perpetrated by rioters across the nation, Trump tweeted that the “THUGS” initiating the violence were “dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.”

Hogan criticized the tweet, saying that it’s “not helpful,” continuing to say that “it’s not lowering the temperature. It’s sort of continuing to escalate the rhetoric. I think it’s just the opposite of the message that should have been coming out of the White House.

Hogan pointed to his experience with the 2015 Baltimore riots, saying that “our theory was peace through strength,” crowing that officials “successfully” stopped the localized violence in “a few hours.”

Fox News reported on Saturday that 5,000 National Guard troops have been deployed across 15 states in response to the rapidly escalating violence that broke out earlier this week. Protests are said to be planned for the next several weeks.

Trump issued a statement on Saturday calling for justice for George Floyd while also condemning the out-of-control riots. Floyd’s death “filled America all over the country with horror, anger and grief,” Trump said, remarking that he had met with Floyd’s family to express “the sorrow of our entire nation for their loss.”

“I stand before you as a friend and ally of every American seeking justice and peace,” Trump continued, continuing on to call for an end to the violence. “What we are seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or peace. The memory of Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists.”

I agree. Obama and Eric Holder made the problem worse for the police by agreeing with the thug that attacked the policeman in Misdouri and the police were told to stand back. These rioter thugs are brought in to burn, steal and make it difficult. I believe the National guard should be brought in immediately with guns and if the don’t stop, they should start shooting. It is a WAR and they get away with it without any fear of retaliation. IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!!!! Trump is correct. They are hired thugs and the ones who are hiring them need to be prosecuted as well!!! If this Rep. won’t stand behind the president, he needs to be voted out!!

Your on the right track on who are those behind these riots , like all the Democrats that run those paces where all the riots are taking place , and it looks like they are the types of people behind those riots taking place across our county , and running those riots ,almost like a union when they want the working people to go a strike , weather it be for a raise in pay or benefits are both. , and those who organized these riots may have been payed off just like their leaders of the riots taking place ,and those who get their benefits are those that break into stores and steal anything they can get their evil crooked hands on and take home. and what may need to take place , is when an order is given to the National Guard to round up all those who are in power of their cities , and put them all in jails , And with them in jail , we may see all this evil riots come to a halt real quick.

I absolutely agree with you. It is time to show domestic terrorists that we follow the rights that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights give us. People need to learn the truth about how this Country was founded and why the Constitution and Bill of Rights was written in the way that they were. Our forefathers were fighting against foreign soldiers and home grown terrorists also. If people don’t know the truth about America’s history that in the future we would have the same issues that they had just with m

I am with Trump, inititially he gave comfort to the Floyd family, then spoke harshly about the rioters and I am in full agreement with his statement, if they want to peacefully protest, I support them, but not the looting and burning and spdestructionn of property. Hogan is a Republican living in a Democratic State, that affects his thought process, wants to get re-elected.
Shame on the looters and burners!

Quit trying to spin this riot as a political agenda. The fact you are Republican taking to Jake Tapper on fake news CNN pretty much tells me you are a Rhino and a back stabber. People on the streets using violence are thugs and domestic terrorists funded by Deep Stays left wing radicals.
If you do not support your Republican Party then switch parties and go kiss the Democrats a$$es.

Once again, Soros’ is paying his thug puppets to come in from other areas and join the peaceful demonstrators to turn the situation violent! He and the dirty left will stop at nothing to try to cause chaos and undermine any thing that is done to show respect, sympathy, or unity of a action that people, no matter their race, religion, political views, or what ever! Find TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! And EXPECT NOTHING LESS than SEVERE PUNISHMENT for MURDER! PRESIDENT Trump called them by their correct names, they weren’t at the Demonstrations to let George Floyd’s family know that they supported them, they were there to loot and steal! The Dirty Left would like nothing better than to see if they can’t insight a Martial Law! There’s a Payday coming ! There’s alot of People Praying and I Believe GOD is hearing Our Prayers! What has been done in the dark, GOD will reveal in the Light! Just like Hogan showed his true colors!

He was not talking about the protesters it was those that were destroying people’s property. If they are not thugs then what are they. Those that were marching to let it be known how valuable George Floyd’s life was great but those who were using it as means to vandalize is another thing. Mr. Floyd’s family did not want destruction of property. I am sure the residents of Baltimore did not want their property and lives destroyed. Is Baltimore whole today are they still trying to rebuild their community?

I to am with the President on this. The President is right these rioters, looters, and anarchist don’t belong. What have these store owners done for people to go in and steal from them, George Floyd lost his life to four brutal and disrespectful people what they did we should never forgive but breaking into innocent peoples property is just plain wrong, so Mr Governor Hogan get over yourself the President was right. Stop your attacks you sound like a demonrat!

This rhino hogan is the same oh, same oh rhedoric that dummies usually spew. President Trump is taking the right approach, by telling the TRUTH, something rhino hogan, cnn, msnbc or any of the left wing lying liberal fake news outlets even know what TRUTH means. What a shame that most everyone in the media, the democrats, congress, the senate dems & evil Hollywood scumbags all hate someone so much, they would lie, lie, lie about what is really going on. These un-American people are slowly waking up a sleeping giant that they will be sorry for when the time comes, it will be to late to turn back for them once it gets started. We tried to get them to listen the easy way, but they are too filled with hate to see the real problem. MAGA !

Hogan where have you been for five years…let’s face facts we need real change. All white people like me are sick to death with the brutality that is being affected on all races. However, th riots are not the local people doing this. It’s up to the people on the street to ask these outsiders to leave and stop destroying their homes and businesses. We all need to stand up and take control and make changes, not 5 years from now, today. Their are good and bad in all races, let’s be clear and send a message to stand together.

Governor Hogan, you are a moron… They are thugs sir, not protesters… Once you step over the line of the law, even picking up that first rock and heaving it towards someone or something to hurt or cause damage, you are no longer a legal, constitutional protester… You are now a criminal. None of the damage and looting those “Thug” criminal cowards are doing has anything to do with protesting what the police officer did to George Floyd. It was merely just a reason for those coward thug morons to cause a riot. I have seen my share of “Race Riots” back in the 70’s and 80’s and to say president Trump isn’t helping the situation is a farce in and of itself, and you Governor Hogan, are the farce for suggesting that. President Trump is doing more than ALL of you Governors and Mayors to defuse the rioting, but we all also have to be reminded that it will never be acceptable for this level of violence and destruction under any circumstances including this one because it just hurts or kills their own cause to make it better. and president Trump is not afrarto remind us of that…They’re the ones “Not Helping” their cause Governor. And you sir are not helping by attacking the one man who is doing more about this situation than any of the states going though this. This is a terrible situation going on now and you are just another finger pointer. You’re worse than a Democrat Governor Hogan because you are a Republican. One of the good guys right? This will not make it any better either, any more than for the police, or anyone else in a position of power to allow what had happened to George Floyd and believe those cowards who refuse to hold their tempers have a reason to create destruction… It is NOT understadable, because I’ve been there. And I’m a white man who doesn’t pretend to know what anyone in the African American communities are going through. It is a struggle and a fight and they truly deserve better. You are better pressed to concentrate on justice for Mr. Floyd instead of being another fake “RINO” finger pointer at the president sir. Don’t the Dems lie and falsely accuse president Trump enough? Do our party a favor and don’t act like one. Do your job.

I guess Gov. Hogan is OK with this kind of response from someone wanting to replace PRESIDENT TRUMP.
“Biden staffers are donating to spring violent rioters out of jail, and Joe doesn’t have any problem with it”.
What an empty shirt and empty head this governor is. No wonder Cities in Maryland are shit holes with this kind of leadership at the top in the State. Nice job Gov of “helping” to pull the Nation together. You would have been better off keeping your mouth SHUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My question to all, how can one identify a peaceful protester, from a looter, a arsenist. If anyone can identify them from one another, you’re good, because I cannot, they all look alike. This is true, the anarchist, socialism, the left media, are all trying to overthrow peace, with the expense of our freedom.

These “THUG” CRIMINALS AND VERY DEPRAVED people should be arrested and serve prison time as well as huge fines for the damages they have caused. You Governor Hogan don’t even know what you’re talking about. Obama called the rioters thugs in 2015 too. I don’t think this was cooling the temperature. I remember the riots going on for quite a while, days not a few hours. I remember how people were blocking streets and highways and stopping others from getting to work day after day until they became so angry they started driving through the human chains. There were injuries and that finally put a stop to it.
These criminals are not doing all this in grief for George, they’re taking advantage of the situation to do what they do best after being kept locked at home because of the coronavirus. They’re enjoying themselves and have already injured people. Deaths will be next if they haven’t already happened.

Personally I don’t think that it makes a difference to what our Leaders are saying because some people are gonna act the way their acting. I am all for protesting, but if you’re out there acting like a thug then you get what you get . Burning buildings and cars, beating up other people and the police and stealing are all crimes. So if you’re one of those people doing criminal actions then i wholly agree with throwing them in jail R I P George Floyd

President Trump IS addressing the violent looters but those are not in this to reach peace. The looters rioters are acting as if they deserve to rob the businesses without recourse. They’ll probably be from out of state & probably funded. Even the looters have a price.
Maybe be the city mayor could invite some of the protestors to meet with other civic leaders to address their grievances but protesting daily is only allowing the rioters & looters to create chaos for its not about the death of Mr Floyd. Those rioting are not respectful to the Floyd Family. Hopefully this will end for those committing harm will return to their home state.

Excuse me some of my grandchildren are black & they have many opportunities. My black grandson received grants & loans for college.,my white grandaughter received loans but struggled to get a grant so she worked 2 jobs to put herself through school. So dont tell me they arent treatrd the same sometimes better. I’ve seen this before many times with the black communities. Why they feel totally destroying everything is there right is beyond me. I’m so tired of hearing how ones great grandparents where slaves . It time to get over it. Maybe when Lincoln freed the slaves they should have all been returned to their orginal homeland. Which if you remember that homeland sold them as slaves the US didn’t go kidnap them.

President Trumps response was honest and heartfelt. None of the non-demonstrators (and rioters) are comfortable with these displays. Everyone has been on lockdown (sheltering in place) for so long that everyone is anxious to have something to do. Oddly enough, I’ve never heard of a demonstration/riot for the loss of an Asian, Caucasian or Hispanic loss of life. Why is that?
Why is everyone always looking for an excuse to belittle our POTUS>

I feel the United STATES will not fall for this commie action–and put the members who are responsible in jail–and then deport them to a red nation like China. If these people who think they can get way with this–better think twice.
