Trump Reportedly Considering Firing Rod Rosenstein Following Cohen Office Raid

President Trump is reportedly weighing whether or not to fire Rod Rosenstein, as multiple sources close to the matter told CNN that the president’s interest in releasing the deputy attorney general was heightened after the office of his personal lawyer Michael Cohen was raided by the FBI. The CNN report noted that such a move could limit special counsel Robert Mueller’s quickly escalating investigation into Trump and Russia. However, the sources who spoke to the network said that even firing Rosenstein may not be enough a drastic enough move for the president who is reeling after the Cohen raid that the deputy attorney general personally signed-off on, per the New York Times. At one point, Trump was driven to reportedly ask if “my guys” with the “Trump Justice Department” could handle all the investigation matters, all while complaining to administration officials that Rosenstein and the DOJ are not providing sufficient Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Considering Firing Rod Rosenstein Following Cohen Office Raid"

S.E. Cupp Calls Out the U.N.: ‘Metaphorically Masturbating While the World Is Watching’ Syria

HLN host S.E. Cupp called out the United Nations for “metaphorically masturbating” amid the international attention the chemical attack that took place in Syria, which was allegedly carried out by forces connected to the Bashar al-Assad regime. Cupp opened her segment by slamming Barack Obama‘s “red line” chemical weapons policy, which he infamously backed off of by punting the issue to Congress. The issue was then debated on Capitol Hill, but action against Assad for crossing the “red line” was ultimately never taken. “Nobody was held accountable for the attack,” lamented Cupp. “Not by the US, and certainly not by the UN.” She continued by explaining how the situation got worse:
“Next month the UN is set to hold a chemical weapons disarmament conference. Guess who is set to preside over it? Syria. I’m not making this up. So, from calling inquiry after inquiry to issuing condemnation Continue reading "S.E. Cupp Calls Out the U.N.: ‘Metaphorically Masturbating While the World Is Watching’ Syria"

Durbin Confronts Zuckerberg on Privacy Concerns: Will You Share Which ‘Hotel You Stayed In Last Night?’

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois grilled Mark Zuckerberg over his social media site’s privacy issues by asking if the Facebook founder would be willing to share “the name of the hotel you stayed in last night” and who he’s “messaged” in recent days. While many of the questions asked during Zuckerberg’s big day on Capitol Hill were pointless ramblings from tech illiterate lawmakers, Durbin appeared to hit the tech superstar in a way he did not predict, as he fumbled to answer the confrontational line of questioning that many users of the site are now concerned with amid Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica voter data scandal. “Mr. Zuckerberg, would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?” questioned Durbin, to which Zuckerberg replied with an awkward, “Um… no.” While the crowd watching the spectacle laughed at the lawmaker’s questions, he continued by Continue reading "Durbin Confronts Zuckerberg on Privacy Concerns: Will You Share Which ‘Hotel You Stayed In Last Night?’"

NBC’s Hallie Jackson Confronts Sarah Sanders About Trump’s ‘Standard of Accuracy’

NBC News chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson scuffled with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over her knock on the media for not holding themselves to a “high standard of accuracy,” as the reporter pointed to some of the president’s more outlandish claims and asked if she holds him to that same standard. “Your comments citing the L.A. Times article, when asked — I think by John here — about the president’s rape remarks at that event last week, that didn’t actually back up the president’s claim,” Jackson said during today’s White House press briefing. “You actually, last fall, admonished reporters to make sure we hold ourselves to a high standard of accuracy. Does the president also need to be held to that same standard of accuracy?” “Absolutely,” shot back Sanders, who defended Trump’s claims regarding female migrants being raped. “80% of the women that make that Continue reading "NBC’s Hallie Jackson Confronts Sarah Sanders About Trump’s ‘Standard of Accuracy’"

Larry Kudlow Mocks Mark Zuckerberg For His ‘Phony Baloney’ Casual Outfits: ‘Hoodies and Dungarees’

Larry Kudlow, a cable news amateur economist-turned-Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, did his best old-man-yells-at-clouds impersonation by mocking Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg for dressing unprofessionally with his “phony baloney… hoodies and dungarees.” Kudlow went on to advise the beleaguered social media giant to “clean up his act,” as he is testifying before Congress tomorrow regarding Facebook’s voter data scandal. “Is he gonna wear a suit and tie and a clean white shirt? That is my biggest question,” said Kudlow to reporters asking him if the White House thinks Facebook should be regulated. “Is he gonna behave like an adult as a major corporate leader, or give me this phony baloney — what is it, hoodies and dungarees? What is that?” For readers unfamiliar with the term “dungarees,” it’s apparently old man terminology for blue jeans — a staple of Zuckerberg’s signature casual look that he is Continue reading "Larry Kudlow Mocks Mark Zuckerberg For His ‘Phony Baloney’ Casual Outfits: ‘Hoodies and Dungarees’"

Fox News Guest Looks Into the Camera to Appeal to Trump on Syria: ‘I’m Speaking to You Directly’

A Fox News guest advocating for US military intervention against Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria turned away from the network’s host and looked directly into the studio’s camera to talk “directly” to Donald Trump, as the president has a well-known addiction to cable news. Bassam Rifai of the Syrian American Council appeared on the network to discuss the recent chemical weapon attack that was reportedly carried out by forces tied to Assad, but rather than talking to the Fox News anchor, Rifai opted to speak to the most powerful member of the network’s audience:
“The president needs to take swift and decisive action right now. President Trump, I’m speaking to you directly. Do not [make] the same mistake that President Obama had made. The action that you had taken in Khan Shaykhun to take out the airbase there, that was important — and that was strong. That was a very Continue reading "Fox News Guest Looks Into the Camera to Appeal to Trump on Syria: ‘I’m Speaking to You Directly’"
