Appearing on Fox News’ Chris Wallace Show Fox News Sunday yesterday, Kellyanne Conway was asked by Wallace about the tape capturing last week’s altercation between a White House intern and Jim Acosta from CNN, and then circulated by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and InfoWars claiming the “altered video” was not altered at all, because it is “done all the time in sports.”
Prior to leaving for Paris, Mr. Trump had an impromptu press interaction and declared he did not know his newly placed Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, who is now overseeing the Mueller probe.
Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent out a series of Tweets implying a vast conspiracy was taking place due to his belief that “democratic lawyers are trying to change the results” of this past Tuesday’s election. Governor Rick Scott continues to hold a slim lead over his opponent, Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL), however, that margin continues to deteriorate as more votes continue to be counted.
As my colleague, Leo Vidal here at PoliticusUSA makes clear regarding Mr. Trump using the most blatant of racist ads to use as his closing argument for the mid-term elections by pinning it up on top of his Twitter feed:
Many are aware of Mr. Trump‘s mental deficiencies and pathological lying, but what remains puzzling is why so many of his supporters remain so vigilant in their defense of him, when he has made such a delusional and mendacious remark as he did yesterday, regarding his Administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Yesterday the ABC network – cancelled The Roseanne Barr Show due to Barr placing an inflammatory Tweet on Twitter for public consumption.
In response to a Tweet about former President Barack Obama’s aide, Valerie Jarrett, Barr made the following statement:
Rudy Giuliani had quite the unhinged interview with Dana Bash several days ago.
As PoliticusUSA Editor-In-Chief, and my colleauge Jason Easley described that interview in his piece titled Rudy Giuliani Screws Up And Admits Mueller Wants To Interview Trump On Obstruction of Justice:
On the same broadcast this past Friday when Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, laid into Donald Trump for his persistent lying with impunity to the people of this nation, in a later segment Wallace reminded her viewers through one of her panelists why Mr. Trump is “utterly unfit” to be President of the United States.
MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace, host of Deadline: White House, has had it with Donald Trump’s propaganda, and has reached a point of utter frustration, as a direct result of it, so much so that she refused to share with her viewers any more of the plethora of Tweets Trump spewed Friday morning regarding the Russian investigation.
E. J. Dionne, columnist for the Washington Post and author of several works regarding political analysis, reports that the American Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael Curry, who “preached for the royal wedding last Saturday, isn’t finished with us yet.”
The first amendment of our constitution is clear:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
On January 6, 2017, between Donald Trump winning the presidential election and his being sworn in, our nation’s intelligence community issued a document clearly outlining how Russia, at the directive of the President of that nation, interfered with our election, favoring Donald Trump.
Instead of providing reassurance that Mr. Trump was not considering firing Robert Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, Trump provided a cryptic response to a reporter yesterday asking whether “he had decided it not worth the political fallout” to fire either of the men associated with the Russian investigation.
By now we all have learned how American Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley appeared on Meet the Press on Sunday to tell the world that the United States was going to be imposing a new round of sanctions against Russia for their involvement in the Syrian crisis.
Several rumors continue circulating that Mr. Trump wants to fire the Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice, Rod Rosenstein, or Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, with reports by major media outlets such as The Washington Post and The New York Times, confirming such speculation.
Last night, Robert Costa, from the Washington Post reports that Steve Bannon is “pitching a plan to West Wing aides and congressional allies” in an apparent attempt to “cripple the federal investigation, into the matter of Russian interference.”
During Mr. Trump’s meltdown on Monday night, prior to his meeting with his security team regarding the issue of Syria, the reader might recall a reporter asking Mr. Trump quite an unusual question:
It is one thing for liberal leaning political analysts or pundits to discuss Mr. Trump’s apparent meltdown yesterday addressing how his long time friend and lawyer, Michael Cohen is now at the center of a federal investigation and quite another to witness Republican strategist, and former John McCain campaign Chief Strategist, Steve Schmidt doing so.
In front of his Security Council yesterday, Mr. Trump commented on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s earlier raid and warrant served on his longtime friend and lawyer, Michael Cohen.
Lashing out at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, calling the investigation a “witch hunt” and a “disgrace,” Trump said the following regarding the raid which took place in multiple locations earlier in the day:
