Trump Whines That His Opponents Are Called ‘Elite’: ‘I’m Richer Than They Are’

“Do you ever notice they always call the other side — and they do this sometimes — the elite?” President Donald Trump said Wednesday night at a rally in Duluth, MN. “The elite!” The Seinfeld-ian “Did you ever notice?” query was lobbed in the direction of the president’s audience in the waning moments of the Wednesday night speech. Trump said the thought suddenly occurred to him. “Why are they elite?” Trump said. “I have a much better apartment than they do. I’m smarter than they are. I’m richer they are. I became president and they didn’t.” The crowd let up a huge cheer. Watch above, via Fox News. [featured image via screengrab] —— Follow Joe DePaolo (@joe_depaolo) on Twitter

Fox News Chyron Trashes Other Networks For ‘Ignoring’ Trump’s ‘Presidential’ Rally

On Wednesday night, Fox News called out the other networks which neglected to cover the rally that President Donald Trump held Wednesday night in Duluth, MN. In an impressive show of passive-aggression during the rally, Fox News’ chyron – for several minutes of their broadcast – read: “Trump Rally Live & Only on Fox News: Other Networks Ignore Presidential Rally.” Indeed, other networks (except for Fox Business and CSPAN, which were also covering the rally) were focused on the new executive order Trump signed seeking to end the policy of separating children from their families. Thanks for the shade, Fox News. I can’t imagine why other networks chose to forgo airing chants of “CNN Sucks” and Trump boasting about how rich he is for 45 minutes of primetime. But, as it often does, Twitter threw some shade right back:

Trump: Democrats Want Immigrants to ‘Pour In’ From the Middle East

President Donald Trump went on a tear against Democrats at his rally in Minnesota Wednesday night regarding his topic du jour — immigration — and made sure to include a painfully xenophobic quip about the Middle East. “So the Democrats want open borders,” Trump told his rowdy crowd at a Duluth, MN stadium. “Let everybody come in. Let everybody pour in, we don’t care, them come in from the Middle East, let them come in from all over the place.” The crowd booed. “We don’t care, we’re not going to let it happen,” Trump said. He then commented on the executive order he signed today the put an end to his administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that separated migrant children from their parents at the southern border. “We will keep families together but the border is going to be just as tough as it has been,” he said.

Crowd at Trump Rally Chants ‘CNN Sucks!’ As POTUS Rails Against ‘Fake News’

President Donald Trump‘s rally in Duluth, MN touched on all the greatest hits, including, of course, the “fake news media.” After touting the creation of “3.4 million new jobs” since Election Day, Trump turned his attention to bashing the press. “And I have said before, if I would have said that to you during the campaign, those very dishonest people back there, the fake news, very dishonest. They would have said, he is exaggerating.” At this point, the crowd chanted “CNN Sucks!” for several seconds, and Trump let it die down before saying again: “These are very dishonest people.” The president’s constant condemnation of the media is unacceptable — and leads to unfortunate, even dangerous scenes such as this. A free press needs to be cherished by our government, and when the press is the enemy of the state, the country becomes a dictatorship.

Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act

Fox’s Laura Ingraham was among the many people who this week said dumb, clumsy, or rotten things about the family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, but on Tuesday night, before Trump announced his executive action, Ingraham ran an extensive segment from on-location at the border south of San Diego. The lengthy opening segment to The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday was, in contrast to the icy detachment of White House adviser Stephen Miller, very cognizant of the well-being of the children who have become the responsibility of the American taxpayer. In keeping with her “summer camp” remark, she was highly focused on the quality of care for the kids at the known facilities, as opposed to the harm of being apart from their parents or the horror of American government officials taking them away. Nevertheless, at least some care was taken with the topic. The situation was “not Continue reading "Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act"

‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Gets Approval for ‘White Civil Rights’ Rally in DC on Anniversary of Charlottesville

The organizer behind last year’s deadly Charlottesville rally has just received approval to hold a rally across from the White House on Aug. 12. Jason Kessler, a white supremacist and one of the primary organizers behind the Unite the Right rally, applied for a permit for a “white civil rights” rally to be held on Lafayette Square. The purpose of the gathering, according to The Washington Post, is to protest “civil rights abuse in Charlottesville.” While the request has been approved, a permit has not yet been issued. Kessler had first tried to apply for a rally permit in Charlottesville for the same day, but that permit was denied. Last year’s Charlottesville rally erupted into violent brawls and took the life of Heather Heyer, an anti-racism activist and paralegal who died after a car drove through a group of counterprotesters. She was 32. A total of Continue reading "‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Gets Approval for ‘White Civil Rights’ Rally in DC on Anniversary of Charlottesville"
