Transportation Dept.: Anti-Trump Tweet from Sec. Chao Was Posted by an Employee

Earlier today a rather odd tweet about President Trump was posted from the official account of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, in response to a pro-impeachment tweet from Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters: Now, it’s probably a given that Donald Trump’s Transportation Secretary does not actually believe that Trump’s very soul should be sued. So what happened? Well, CNN reports the Department of Transportation explained that it was an employee:
[T]he tweet was “posted by an employee with access to the account” who “took action outside of his scope of work and duties and without any approvals.” “We are taking appropriate action,” the spokesperson said. “We regret that this transpired and have taken steps to prevent any future occurrence.”

In the Love Actually Mini-Sequel Trailer, the Cast Debates Who’s Aged the Best

Fans of Love Actually will have to wait until Red Nose Day, May 25th, to see the ten-minute mini-sequel to the 2003 movie. Today, however, NBC released a trailer, and as you might expect, all these years later everyone is talking about who has aged best. Red Nose Day is a day of fundraising for children living in poverty created by Richard Curtis, who wrote and directed the Christmas film. The trailer is a nod to the “cue cards” scene from the film that has now become iconic.

Red Nose Day Actually airs at 10:00pm EST on NBC. Watch the trailer above. [featured image via screen grab]

And I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.” “You have seen direct evidence of collusion?” Continue reading "Adam Schiff on Russia/Trump Collusion: ‘There is Evidence That is Not Circumstantial’"
