Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani Rips Michael Cohen Over Plea Deal: ‘A Pattern of Lies’

Current Donald Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has officially responded to the news today of former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen reaching a plea deal and entering guilty pleas in New York this afternoon. Giuliani says that prosecutors noted that Cohen’s actions “reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time,” and that is correct. The prosecutors did speak to the press following the entering of the guilty pleas, but not merely to say Cohen is a practiced liar. They specifically outlined that two of the eight charges to which he is pleading are campaign Continue reading "Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani Rips Michael Cohen Over Plea Deal: ‘A Pattern of Lies’"

Trump Voter Apologizes to the Nation on CNN: ‘It Was The Biggest Mistake I Ever Made’

While a chunk of President Donald Trump‘s base has stuck by him through ongoing scandals from questionable ties with Russia to the revelation of hush-money payouts to a porn star, some are having voter’s remorse. Regretful ex-Trumpster Jeremy Montanez was felt so strongly about the matter that he apologized to the entire country on CNN. “I want to apologize to the nation for my vote for him,” Montanez said Tuesday during a panel discussion New Day. “It was the wrong thing to do. It was the biggest mistake I ever made.” Montanez also called the president a racist, pointing to his lack of attention to Puerto Rico’s devastation by Hurricane Maria as an example. “He said they want to just cry–they needed help,” Montanez said. “Just because they’re not white skinned he doesn’t want to go down there and help them out?” Montanez was one of several Continue reading "Trump Voter Apologizes to the Nation on CNN: ‘It Was The Biggest Mistake I Ever Made’"

Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow Says ‘Bad Information’ Led to False Statements on Trump Tower Meeting: It Happens

President Donald Trump‘s attorney, Jay Sekulow, is blaming “bad information” on his previous claim that the president had no involvement in releasing a statement on Donald Trump Jr.‘s 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer. “I was in the case at that time, what, a couple of weeks and there was a lot of information that was gathering, and as my colleague Rudy Giuliani said, I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement,” Sekulow told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday’s broadcast of This Week. Sekulow Continue reading "Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow Says ‘Bad Information’ Led to False Statements on Trump Tower Meeting: It Happens"

Giuliani Says Cohen is ‘Bitter’ Over Not Getting WH Job: ‘Really Sick’ Scenario

Following Michael Cohen‘s allegation that President Donald Trump knew of a Trump Tower meeting during which Russians planned to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton just months before the 2016 election, Rudy Giuliani slammed the former fixer as nothing but a jealous liar, spiteful over being excluded from the White House. “He didn’t select Michael for government. You know Michael was bitter about that,” Giuliani told CNN’s Chris Cuomo Thursday evening after the network broke the latest on the Cohen scandal. “That’s going to be on tapes, without getting into the detail of that. And he’s very, very jealous and bitter about the kids, which also comes across on the tapes. So you got a whole scenario here that’s really, really sick.” Giuliani, who serves as Trump’s personal attorney, has been a staunch defender of the president, attempting to paint Cohen as a deceptive character thirsty for revenge as developments continue to Continue reading "Giuliani Says Cohen is ‘Bitter’ Over Not Getting WH Job: ‘Really Sick’ Scenario"

Trump Falsely Claims He Won the Women’s Vote in 2016: I Got More Than Hillary Did

While the 2016 election is long over, President Donald Trump apparently still doesn’t have the vote tallies straight. During a Thursday Granite City, IL speech at one of U.S. Steel’s mill, Trump touted job numbers, giving himself a pat on the back for recent employment growth before erroneously claiming he secured the majority of the women’s vote. Addressing a cheering crowd, Trump said, “I did win that women’s vote, didn’t I? Remember? Remember they said, why would women vote for Trump? I don’t know, but I got more than she did. That’s pretty good.” Contrary to Trump’s assertion, 54 percent of women as a whole voted for his challenger, Hillary Clinton, compared to his 42 percent, according to Quartz. However, if that number is broken down by race, it becomes clear white women favored Trump more strongly over Clinton. But that’s not the first time Trump has Continue reading "Trump Falsely Claims He Won the Women’s Vote in 2016: I Got More Than Hillary Did"

Trump Tweets ‘Scam’ Carter Page FISA Warrants ‘Confirm with Little Doubt’ The ‘Witch Hunt Rigged’

On Saturday, the Carter Page FISA warrants were released, which are the warrants that allowed the original wiretap of the former campaign adviser.

Mark Zuckerberg Reportedly Made Secret Call to Trump to Congratulate Him For Election

Just after his 2016 election, President Donald Trump received a private congratulatory call from Mark Zuckerberg, according to BuzzFeed News. Three people with knowledge of the Facebook CEO’s friendly gesture confirmed to the outlet that he praised the president-elect’s win and his successful campaign just days after he beat his challenger, Hillary Clinton. It is worth noting that Trump campaigned hard on Facebook with millions of dollars worth of ads, the social media mogul himself even admitting in a post on the platform last month that “liberals say we helped” him after the president claimed it was against him. Zuckerberg’s call is one of a handful of Trump endorsements made by employees of his company. [Image via screengrab] Follow Amy Russo on Twitter: @amymrusso
