In the days after the January insurrection, few Conservative lawmakers or media members were willing to defend the rioters. As time has gone on, there has been a push by Republican Reps. and Fox News personalities to downplay the events of that day.
The New York investigators looking into the Trump Organization have continued to widen their probe. Allen Weisselberg, the long time CFO of the company has been in their cross-hairs for months.
Weisselberg, though, has reportedly been a reluctant witness against his boss. So now investigators have set their sights on COO Matthew Calamari. According to a new report, Calamari and his son are being advised to lawyer up.
Donald Trump would very much like to run for president again in 2024. He has a number of hurdles to overcome to get there. He has serious legal issues in both New York and Georgia. He is also a 75 year-old man who isn’t in the greatest physical condition. But if he’s able to clear those hurdles, Trump would be favored to be the 2024 GOP nominee.
Not too many Americans had a good year financially in 2020. Jeff Bezos, however, had a banner year. The fortune of the Amazon founder only grew while people were stuck in their houses.
Amazon has been heavily criticized for the pay and treatment of its workers despite massive profits. On Monday, the online retailer celebrated its Prime Day, offering major discounts on popular items. Bill de Blasio encouraged New Yorkers to instead shop locally.
Joe Biden is now back in town after his first foreign trip. The president’s trip was markedly different than those of his predecessor. Unlike Donald Trump, who was seen as mostly a joke by foreign leaders, Biden was accepted and embraced.
Donald Trump lost the presidential election in 2020. The GOP was also unable to take the house and lost control of the senate in January. Most people watching would realize that Trump was a drag on the party, especially in the suburbs.
When Joe Biden won the White House this November, Democrats thought they wouldn’t have to deal with Donald Trump for number of years. That might not be true, though.
If Trump wanted to, he could easily win a Republican house seat in the state of Florida. And if Republicans won back the House at the same time, Trump could be elected into a leadership position, potentially even Speaker of the House.
The presidency of Donald Trump featured a number of truly awful moments. But the worst or the worst was the January 6th insurrection inspired by Trump’s false election claims.
Rather than taking responsibility for what happened on that day, the anchors of Fox News are looking to blame anyone but Trump. Last night, Tucker Carlson claimed the insurrection was an FBI inspired false flag operation.
Fox News has always been far right. But the network has taken an even more dramatic turn since the election of Joe Biden. Leading this charge is Tucker Carlson who recently claimed that the Trump insurrection this January was actually a false flag operation conducted by the FBI.
Donald Trump functions in a very different way than most politicians. The 45th president was coddled throughout his entire life and it wasn’t very often that he faced consequences for his actions.
Thus far, Joe Biden has received high marks from the press for his recent foreign trip. On Wednesday, though, he did get into a testy exchange with CNN‘s Kaitlin Collins.
And the right-wing media has seized on that moment to allude to the entire trip as a disaster. This was the take Meghan McCain took during Thursday’s episode of The View.
In June of 1865, slaves were emancipated from slavery in the state of Texas. The next year, African Americans began to celebrate the anniversary of this occasion by celebrating Juneteenth.
This week, American lawmakers voted on whether or not to make the day a national holiday. Many Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy were behind the measure. But Tucker Carlson wasn’t. The Fox News host blasted Republican leadership for supporting the bill.
Allen Weisselberg has been with the Trump Organization for a very long time. So long, in fact, that when he started Fred Trump ran the company, not Donald.
But Weisselberg is facing serious legal jeopardy in the state of New York. And with an indictment looming, it looks like he may soon have the choice of saving himself or saving Donald Trump. During a recent interview on MSNBC, Andrew Weissmann explained the sort of trouble Weisselberg is in.
Joe Rogan has one of the most popular podcasts in the country. He is such a powerful voice that Spotify recently signed him to a massive deal that pays him $100 million.
The podcast host is also no stranger to controversy. He recently took heat for saying that young and healthy people don’t need to worry about getting vaccinated.
Most political administrations would have considered Alex Jones to be a joke. The Trump administration, though, desperately need the votes of his supporters. So they played ball.
Trump made a memorable appearance on Jones’ show InfoWars back in December of 2015. At the time, the former president was seeking the Republican nomination. And in one sense, the two men legitimized one another.
The events of January 6th were broadcast live on all cable news channels. Supporters of Donald Trump stormed the United States Capitol and had no problem attacking any police officer that stood in their way.
While a fair amount of his business career has taken place in court rooms, Donald Trump has spent the last 4 years immune from prosecution. That protection, though is now over and Trump has to face the music in New York and Georgia.
Donald Trump is a much weaker figure than he was a year ago. He’s obviously no longer the president and doesn’t have the massive platform that comes along with the office. And he’s been banned from Twitter where millions of people listened to his rants.
Donald Trump may be out of office, but stories are still emerging about the things he did while in office. The New York Times recently revealed that Trump’s Department of Justice issued secret subpoenas to get information on Democratic congressmen Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell.
