Fox News’ Sean Hannity ripped CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta over his recent claims that he was just as tough on former President Barack Obama as he is on President Donald Trump. Acosta, who out of the entire press corps probably boasts the most contentious relationship with the White House, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night and said, “when I covered Barack Obama, I was just as tough on him.” Acosta pointed to a question he once asked the Obama administration about ISIS that apparently rankled the White House. Those comments didn’t satisfy Hannity, however, who mocked Acosta’s claims of balance. “CNN’s Fake News self-righteous cry-baby Jim Acosta, yes, the big liberal leftist will do anything for attention,” Hannity rhapsodized. “He went on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, claimed that he was just as tough on Obama as he is on President Trump. Really?” In response Continue reading "Sean Hannity Rips CNN’s Jim Acosta For Claiming He Was Tough on Obama With Clip of Softball Question"
Jesse Watters would be pretty pleased if President Donald Trump won a Nobel Peace Prize – because it would really piss off the left. During a discussion of North Korea and international politics, the cohost of The Five said Wednesday that if Trump won the Nobel Peace Prize, it would be a boon to the right because it would give them the right to, in modern parlance, dab on the haters. The comment was made after Juan Williams conjectured that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and other leaders across the globe feel that President Donald Trump and “the conservative media” are “so hungry for the Nobel Prize that … [if Kim says] cancel your joint military exercises, President [Donald] Trump will be under pressure to do it. We’ll see what happens.” “No, we’re not hungry for the Peace Prize, Juan, we’re hungry for peace,” Watters replied. “It’s just, like, Continue reading "Jesse Watters on Trump Winning Nobel Peace Prize: Would Be ‘A Nice Trophy to Shove in The Left’s Face’"
Former CIA Director John Brennan said Tuesday that President Donald Trump‘s withdrawal from the Iran Deal is a “dangerous, dangerous act” that “puts at risk our national security.” Brennan, who served under both Democrats and Republicans, made the comment to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace hours after Trump announced from the Diplomatic Room of the White House America’s withdrawal from the multilateral agreement, despite multiple U.S. allies urging otherwise. Critics of the administration’s withdrawal from the deal have said that it sends the wrong message to North Korea, for example, a country with whom the U.S. is currently trying to reach a diplomatic solution on the development of nuclear weapons. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a tweet Tuesday that he was on his way to North Korea to lay the groundwork for Trump’s eventual meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. The administration’s withdrawal from Continue reading "Ex-CIA Director John Brennan Makes Dire Warning After Trump Withdraws From Iran Deal: ‘Dangerous Act’"
President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal today, a deal which President Barack Obama helped forge. Obama, on Tuesday afternoon, released a statement expressing his disappointment in his successor’s move, warning that “walking away from the JCPOA risks losing a deal that accomplishes – with Iran – the very outcome that we are pursuing with the North Koreans.” “Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated,” Obama said. “In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.” “In a dangerous world, America must be able to rely in part on strong, Continue reading "Obama Reacts to U.S. Withdrawal From Iran Nuclear Deal: ‘Risks Eroding America’s Credibility’"
The family of Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) does not plan to invite President Donald Trump to the senator’s funeral when the time comes, according to a New York Times report. McCain and Trump have long had a contentious relationship, including Trump slamming McCain and insisting he was not a war hero during his 2016 campaign. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said back then, referring to the former prisoner of war. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” The relationship did not get better after Trump was elected, particularly after Trump mocked McCain after he voted against a key Obamacare repeal. According to NBC, it is McCain’s wish that Trump not attend. However, two former presidents — Barack Obama and George W. Bush — will be in attendance and be asked to deliver eulogies for the longtime and Continue reading "John McCain Reportedly Wants Obama at His Funeral But Not Trump"
According to a stunning new report from the Guardian, the current White House’s campaign to sabotage the Iran deal extended beyond President Donald Trump’s public rebukes of it. Per the Observer:
Aides to Donald Trump, the US president, hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against key individuals from the Obama administration who helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal, the Observer can reveal.Those aides reportedly reached out to private investigators in May, 2017 to seek out “dirt” on Ben Rhodes — a top Obama national security adviser — “as part of an elaborate attempt to discredit the deal.” The campaign also targeted Colin Kahl, a former deputy assistant to Obama. Rhodes was chief salesman of the Iran deal when he served in the Obama administration, and in the Trump era has been a consistent defender of the deal.

After reports emerged of President Donald Trump‘s fixation on proving there was no lewd tape of prostitutes urinating in a Moscow hotel, The New York Daily News made it tomorrow’s cover, with the headline ‘PEE BRAIN!’ slapped across the front page.
pic.twitter.com/mRgKGv1fBK — New York Daily News (@NYDailyNews) April 12, 2018The not-so-subtle cover is no surprise for the Daily News, but the allegations in former FBI Director James Comey‘s book are. A High Loyalty will be released on April 17, and details the president’s supposed obsession with claims he asked the prostitutes to urinate on the same Ritz-Carlton bed where President Barack Obama slept. “There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me,” Comey recalled Trump stating, according to his new book. “No way.” Comey Continue reading "NY Daily News Cover Goes There After Comey Claims Trump Was Obsessed With Pee Tape: ‘PEE BRAIN!’"
