WATCH: Dinesh D’Souza Chokes After CNN’s Camerota Nails Him on Trump-Obama Double Standard

Conservative filmmaker turned Internet troll Dinesh D’Souza continued his victory lap on Tuesday after he was pardoned by President Donald Trump for a felony campaign finance violation — where he was confronted by CNN host Alisyn Camerota for some of his more controversial tweets. Pointing out that D’Souza said that Trump pardoned him so he could be a voice for his principles, Camerota brought up his old tweets with “racist overtones,” including one in which he called Obama’s father “a philandering, inebriated African socialist.” “I’m confused, what are the principles that you are hoping to be able to talk about now and spread?” Camerota asked. “Obama’s father was a philandering, inebriated African socialist as a matter of fact,” D’Souza replied. “Are you anti-philandering?” Camerota shot back. After a pause, D’Souza protested, “look I’m not talking about this.” Camerota again pressed the commentator if he was anti-philandering, Continue reading "WATCH: Dinesh D’Souza Chokes After CNN’s Camerota Nails Him on Trump-Obama Double Standard"

School Cheers When Kentucky Valedictorian Gives Inspirational Trump Quote… Until He Reveals It’s Obama

The best kind of burn is the one you don’t see coming. Kentucky high school student and valedictorian Ben Bowling made his graduation speech a memorable one by quoting a famous figure. “This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bowling told the audience at Bell County High School graduation. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.’ – Donald J. Trump.” The audience erupted into applause, according to the Louisville Courier Journal. 80 percent of Bell County, located in the southeastern part of Kentucky, voted for Trump in the 2016 election. “Just kidding,” Bowling said. “That was Barack Obama.” And a hush fell over the crowd. “The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was Continue reading "School Cheers When Kentucky Valedictorian Gives Inspirational Trump Quote… Until He Reveals It’s Obama"

Clapper: Republicans Stood in the Way of Efforts to Warn U.S. About Russian Interference

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said on New Day that Republican lawmakers stood in the way of efforts by President Barack Obama‘s administration to warn the U.S. about Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Clapper was responding to a New York Times review of Obama adviser Ben Rhodes‘ upcoming memoir, which revealed the former administration’s frustrations with Republicans over their refusal to issue a bipartisan statement warning of Russian election meddling. From the Times:
Mr. Obama had authorized a statement to be issued by intelligence agency leaders a month before the election warning of Russian interference, but was thwarted from doing more because Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, refused to go along with a bipartisan statement. Mr. Rhodes called Mr. McConnell’s refusal “staggeringly partisan and unpatriotic.” But Mr. Obama, whose Supreme Court nomination had been blocked by Mr. McConnell for Continue reading "Clapper: Republicans Stood in the Way of Efforts to Warn U.S. About Russian Interference"

New Memoir Reveals Obama’s Thoughts After Trump Won Election: ‘Maybe This Is What People Want’

Former President Barack Obama has kept himself largely out of the spotlight after he departed the White House, so any insight into his final days in office represents a pretty substantial revelation. In his new memoir The World As It Is, former deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes chronicles some of Obama’s statements in the months before he left office – particularly about the man who was about to replace him, Donald Trump. “Maybe we pushed too far,” Obama said to some of his aides just days after the election. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.” Rhodes recalls Obama talking to several world leaders in his last months in office, including Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who apologized for meeting with Trump at Trump Tower; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whom Obama encouraged to, as it was put in the New York Continue reading "New Memoir Reveals Obama’s Thoughts After Trump Won Election: ‘Maybe This Is What People Want’"

Trump Rips Dems For Blaming Him For Obama-Era Immigrant Photos, Calls For ‘Bipartisan Bill’

President Donald Trump reacted on Tuesday to a debate that raged on Twitter over Memorial Day weekend: a photo showing two children detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in a cage, which many on Twitter blamed on the president’s immigration policies. But the photo, as it turned out, was from 2014, taken under the Obama administration. “Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama’s term showing children from the Border in steel cages,” Trump wrote. “They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backfires. Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country…Bipartisan Bill!”

Trump: Obama ‘Did Nothing’ on Russian Meddling ‘Because He Thought Crooked Hillary Was Going to Win’

President Donald Trump‘s latest attack on the Russia probe? Blaming his predecessor. Taking aim at Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation on Twitter Sunday (again), Trump asked why former President Barack Obama didn’t take action against “the so-called Russian Meddling when he was told about it by the FBI before the Election.” Answering his own apparently rhetorical question, Trump said it was because Obama didn’t want to jeopardize Hillary Clinton‘s chances at winning the presidency. That’s not the first time Trump has pinned the blame on Obama. It’s been Continue reading "Trump: Obama ‘Did Nothing’ on Russian Meddling ‘Because He Thought Crooked Hillary Was Going to Win’"

Ex-Obama WH Photographer Working on a Book Contrasting Obama and Trump: SHADE

You may have heard once or twice about the way former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza throws shade at President Trump with the occasional throwback photo from the Obama era. For example:

Glad he only tweeted out facts with his device.
