Trump Speechwriter With White Nationalist Ties Exits the White House

Darren Beattie, a speechwriter for President Donald Trump, has left the White House after reporters uncovered that he had spoken at a conference of white nationalists. CNN reports that it reached out about Beattie after finding out that he was listed as a speaker at the 2016 H.L. Mencken Club Conference. Other speakers at 2016’s conference included John Derbyshire and Robert Weissberg, two National Review writers who were fired from the magazine in 2012 after expressing racist viewpoints. Beattie confirmed that he was at the conference, telling CNN in an email Saturday: “In 2016 I attended the Mencken conference in question and delivered a stand-alone, academic talk titled ‘The Intelligentsia and the Right.’ I said nothing objectionable and stand by my remarks completely.” “It was the honor of my life to serve in the Trump Administration. I love President Trump, who is a fearless Continue reading "Trump Speechwriter With White Nationalist Ties Exits the White House"

J.K. Rowling Ridicules Typo-Riddled Trump Twitter Rant: ‘I Do’nt Care What Kids at School Call Me’

Author J.K. Rowling smashed President Donald Trump with a tweet mocking his cadence on a tweet about The New York Times Sunday. The Times reported that that White House counsel Don McGahn has been cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Trump said this was “Fake News,” and that “some members of the media… actually called to complain and apologize.” (No word on who these “members” were, but smart money’s on employees of Breitbart and/or Fox News.)

John Oliver Mocks Giuliani’s ‘Truth Isn’t Truth’ Quote: ‘Don’t Worry Donald, Prison Isn’t Prison’

John Oliver took on Rudy Giuliani‘s wild appearance on Meet the Press Sunday, when the Trump lawyer declared “truth isn’t truth.” Giuliani told NBC News anchor Chuck Todd that “truth isn’t truth” when trying to make a point about people making contradictory statements in statements to Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation. When Todd called him out on the gaffe, Giuliani protested, “Don’t do this to me.” Oliver – after referring to Giuliani a ““a one-man legal improve troupe” on Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight — reacted: “Don’t do this to you!? You just said ‘truth isn’t truth.’ That is not acceptable from a president’s lawyer. It’s barely acceptable from a sophomore philosophy major who just tried Molly for the first time. ‘Truth isn’t truth, man and also toes are just feet fingers. I feel warm.’” The HBO host went on to refer Continue reading "John Oliver Mocks Giuliani’s ‘Truth Isn’t Truth’ Quote: ‘Don’t Worry Donald, Prison Isn’t Prison’"

Giuliani Clarifies ‘Truth Isn’t Truth’ Comment: ‘Not Meant as a Pontification on Moral Theology’

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani raised the nation’s eyebrows yesterday when during an impassioned debate with Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, he proclaimed “truth isn’t truth!” Given Trump’s past comments that “what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening” and Kellyanne Conway’s infamous “alternative facts” comment, many laid into this administration’s obvious obfuscation of objectivity as a last tactic in a lowing political war over the Mueller investigation. This morning, the former New York Mayor cleaned up his Sunday morning comment with a tweet that clarified the intended meaning of his comment: Despite Continue reading "Giuliani Clarifies ‘Truth Isn’t Truth’ Comment: ‘Not Meant as a Pontification on Moral Theology’"

President Donald Trump kicked off Monday morning with a Twitter attack aimed at Robert Mueller, referring to the special counsel as “Disgraced and discredited,” and his investigators as “Angry Democrat Thugs.” “Disgraced and discredited Bob Mueller and his whole group of Angry Democrat Thugs spent over 30 hours with the White House Councel [sic], only with my approval, for purposes of transparency,” he wrote. Trump continued: “Anybody needing that much time when they know there is no Russian Collusion is just someone….
