Trump Blames Obama for Russian Election Meddling: ‘Why Didn’t He Do Something?’

Reach for the sky, Barack Obama! Donald Trump of Star Command has his laser pointed right at you. Tweeting once again about Russia meddling in the election – on which he has flip-flopped like a Slinky Dog in the wind – Trump called out Obama for not doing more to deal with the issue: “Obama was President up to, AND BEYOND [our emphasis], the 2016 Election,” Trump tweeted. But the question is: Was Obama president to infinity? Incidentally, intelligence pegged Russia as the culprit of election interference as early as October of 2016, at which point Obama called Russian President Vladimir Putin to issue censure and ordered a report into the matter. In other words: he did do something. It seems like somebody’s Continue reading "Trump Blames Obama for Russian Election Meddling: ‘Why Didn’t He Do Something?’"

Trump Rages Against FBI, Obama, and His Own National Security Adviser in Latest Russia Tweetstorm

President Trump went off on the Russia investigation in a prolonged tweetstorm that started last night, continued into this morning, and involved the President going after his own National Security Adviser. Late last night, Trump tweeted a criticism of the FBI’s handling of the Parkland school shooting and said they’re “spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign”: And in response to National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saying yesterday that the evidence of Russian meddling is “incontrovertible,” the President publicly called him out:

Fox’s Tammy Bruce: Obama Told Trump to ‘Stop Whining’ About Interference With the Election

A day after it was announced that 13 Russian officials and three Russian entities were indicted for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce claimed that the Russian efforts to meddle in the election were essentially Barack Obama’s fault. And that Obama told then-candidate Donald Trump to be quiet when Trump raised concerns about election issues. “Many of the individuals who were indicted came in — into this country when John Kerry was Secretary of State under Barack Obama,” she said on Fox News this morning. “This is what we know.” Stating that the indictments show that the meddling was an “anti-Hillary effort,” Bruce claimed that Russia began hating Clinton because Continue reading "Fox’s Tammy Bruce: Obama Told Trump to ‘Stop Whining’ About Interference With the Election"

Hillary Clinton Responds to Florida School Shooting: ‘Mass Shootings Are Not Inevitable’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared her thoughts about the massacre in Parkland, FL that killed 17 people on Twitter Friday, two days after the attack. Clinton, an advocate for common sense gun reform, wrote that “mass shootings are not inevitable” and that “we [need to] end this carnage once and for all with gun safety laws.”

Obama Calls for ‘Common-Sense Gun Safety Laws’ After Florida Shooting: ‘We Are Not Powerless’

Former president Barack Obama has offered a statement in response to the shooting that left 17 people dead and over a dozen more injured in Parkland, Florida yesterday. Obama’s call for increased gun safety laws contrasts with President Trump, who addressed the nation earlier today and said he was focused on mental health issues in the aftermath of the shooting. The tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has prompted new discussions about gun violence prevention, which is likely to spark emotional and contentious legal debates around the country for the foreseeable Continue reading "Obama Calls for ‘Common-Sense Gun Safety Laws’ After Florida Shooting: ‘We Are Not Powerless’"

Guest on Laura Ingraham’s Show Brings Up Hannity’s ‘Sperm’ Post

Sean Hannity went his entire show Tuesday night without mentioning sperm once, but one of Laura Ingraham‘s guests worked in a reference in the following hour. Just to recap, Hannity’s website on Tuesday afternoon had a post up talking about “SECRET SPERM” in the new Obama portrait. Hannity even tweeted about it. But then the post and tweet were taken down and Hannity pinned the blame on staffers. Fast-foward to tonight when Ingraham did a segment on the Obama portrait by speaking with former Clinton advisor Philippe Reines and EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo. And as they were discussing the reaction to the painting, Reines went ahead and said this:
“I think, if I’m not mistaken, Sean Hannity had tweeted something about there being sperm embedded… I don’t know if I can say that…”
So that happened. Watch above, via Fox News. [image via screengrab] — — Follow Josh Continue reading "Guest on Laura Ingraham’s Show Brings Up Hannity’s ‘Sperm’ Post"

Hannity Claims He Didn’t Review Report on ‘Secret Sperm’ in Obama Portrait: ‘Does Not Reflect My Voice’

Fox News host Sean Hannity set the internet ablaze on Tuesday after his website posted an article suggesting that former President Barack Obama’s portrait is jam-packed with “secret sperm.” The post, which has now been deleted but can be seen here, alleged that a scandal was brewing around the Kehinde Wiley painting of Obama unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery earlier this week. “The widening scandal surrounding former President Barack Obama’s official portrait continued to swirl on Tuesday, with shocking allegations the artist included ‘secret sperm cells’ within the painting and once joked about ‘Killing Whitey’ during an interview,” the post read. It went on to claim that “industry insiders” allege that Wiley’s “trademark technique” is the insertion of “sperm within his paintings.” The post — which bore the very subtle headline “PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM,’ Artist Joked About ‘Killing Whitey’” — and an Continue reading "Hannity Claims He Didn’t Review Report on ‘Secret Sperm’ in Obama Portrait: ‘Does Not Reflect My Voice’"
