Menendez Criticizes Trump Right Outside His Bribery Trial

The Democratic senator may want to pick a better background than the federal courthouse where he’s standing trial.

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) should fire his advance man after an embarrassing background to his criticism of President Trump.

With a federal courthouse, the site of his bribery trial, behind him, Menendez blasted Trump for “difficulty exhibiting empathy.”

“The comments that the president has made that everything is great and everything is working well, that is not the reality I saw as of Friday,” he told reporters.

Menendez is on trial for his connections to a wealthy Florida ophthalmologist and gifts that the doctor gave to the New Jersey senator.
