When a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6th, the rioters came from all over. A number of them, however, came together. They were from organized groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers.
Donald Trump has shown a willingness to defend almost anyone who is willing to defend him. When it comes to the Capitol insurrectionists, he went as far as saying that rather than attacking the police officers, they were hugging and kissing them.
In 2020, Democrats were able to regain control of the White House and the Senate. It would have been impossible to do so without the state of Georgia.
The long time red state turned purple in the last calendar year. In November, Joe Biden secured the state’s 16 electoral votes. In January, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff eeked out wins and gave Democrats control of the United States Senate.
After playing a clip of the comments, CNN's Jake Tapper remarked, "I don’t even know what to say to that, it’s so stupid."
The first two months of Joe Biden‘s presidency have gone pretty well. He was able to pass a massive stimulus bill that is already putting money in American pockets. And millions of people are getting vaccinated each day.
Over the last few months, Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson has become one of the most talked about lawmakers in America. He recently said that he won’t be getting the COVID-19 vaccine because he already has the illness.
Donald Trump threw a number of wild accusations out when he was running against Joe Biden. The 45th president wanted to make one thing clear; a Biden presidency would be bad for Wall St.
Wall St. apparently does not agree. On Wednesday, the same day that Congress based Biden’s stimulus package, the Dow Jones hit an all-time high. During his Wednesday broadcast, Blitzer mocked Trump’s prediction.
On Sunday night, Oprah Winfrey interview Prince Harry and Meghan Markle about their time in the White House. Mouths dropped across the world as Markle talked about the racism she faced as a member of the Royal family.
January 6th was a dark day in American history. Scores of Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol intending to do harm to Republicans and Democrats alike.
Since that event, more than 310 of those insurrections have been arrested. But many more are not done yet.
Donald Trump doesn’t have much use for friends. His two closest friends were a bodyguard who worked in his administration and Michael Cohen, a lawyer who went to jail for him.
Once the usefulness of the friendship has come to pass, Trump is quick to take the exit ramp. And when Mike Pence decided not to help the former president overturn the election, he wasn’t all that useful anymore.
For much of January and February, there was a lot of attention being paid to Marjorie Taylor Greene. The QAnon congresswoman made news when Kevin McCarthy dared to put her on a congressional committee.
Donald Trump has never let any slight, perceived or real, go unanswered. And this wasn’t just during his presidency, but during his entire business career.
So when Mitch McConnell blasted the 45th president on Saturday, Trump was itching to reply. The former president was reportedly so mad that he had be talked out of including a crack about McConnell’s chins.
The nation is, at the moment, very polarized. The last two elections could have swung on just around 100,000 votes. So it behooves both the Democratic and Republicans parties to embrace all types of voters.
While the majority of Republicans refused to convict Donald Trump, most were at least willing to admit that he had done something wrong.
That isn’t the case with Ron Johnson, though. The Wisconsin senator not only voted to acquit Trump, he has also been downplaying the seriousness of the January 6th Capitol attack.
When Donald Trump first encountered the COVID-19 pandemic, he was lucky to have two doctor’s with decades of experience in immunology. The doctors, Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx took divergent paths in how they handled Trump.
It is not too often that a GOP lawmaker appears on CNN or MSNBC. So it was a bit of a surprise to see New York Freshman congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis appear on Erin Burnett’s CNN show.
Malliotakis came on to talk about her hopes to work with Democrats in a bi-partisan manner. This came off as disingenuous, though, as the New York Rep. challenged the election results on January 6th.
About the time George W. Bush became President, the Fox News network became the dominant force in cable news. Rupert Murdoch‘s
operation made stars out of anchors such as Megyn Kelly, Bill O‘Reilly, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.
Last week had a number of major political events. On Monday, Donald Trump made a stump speech in Dalton Georgia. On Tuesday, Americans eagerly awaiting the results of the Georgia senate race.
On Wednesday, viewers tuned in to see the election challenge being mounted by Trump loyalists in the House and Senate. As the fight began, though, a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol.
An aide to outgoing Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler elbowed and pushed Senior Congressional Correspondent for CNN Manu Raju early Wednesday afternoon after he asked her if she thought the Georgia runoff was a free and fair election.
It has been very obvious over the last 4 years that Donald Trump does not enjoy the job of president. It has been equally obvious, though, that Trump very much enjoys the power of the job.
And Trump has exercised that power over the last few weeks in the form of pardons for his political allies and friends. This week, however, Mitch McConnell showed Trump what real power was.
