Trump Complains Media Doesn’t Care About His ‘Great Job Numbers’: ‘Only Russia, Russia, Russia’

It’s Saturday and President Donald Trump is angry again on Twitter. In a predictable weekend tweetstorm, Trump voiced his outrage that the media was not focusing on his “great job numbers” and are instead too obsessed with “Russia, Russia, Russia.” “Great jobs numbers and finally, after many years, rising wages- and nobody even talks about them. Only Russia, Russia, Russia, despite the fact that, after a year of looking, there is No Collusion!” Tweeted Trump. The president went on to tweet a full excerpt of a Wall Street Journal piece regarding the infamous House Intelligence Committee Republican memo, as he seemingly cannot figure out how screenshots work.

Breitbart News Editor: Trump Sharing Unverified Anti-Muslim Videos Is ‘Too Far’

In response to President Donald Trump retweeting three anti-Muslim videos that were originally posted by a far-right, racist political group, Joel Pollak — who is an editor for the vehemently pro-Trump site Breitbart Newspublished an op-ed declaring the controversial clips to be “too far” and even “hate speech.” Jayda Fransen, who is the deputy leader of a UK anti-immigrant party called Britain First, shared the videos on her personal Twitter account and they were retweeted by Trump this morning. The authenticity of the videos are highly questionable, as at least one of the clips has been verified as false. The other two videos in question may not be showing what their anti-Muslim captions suggest the videos are showing, which is the issue Pollak takes with the retweets. Breitbart’s senior editor-at-large wrote the following to justify his issue with Trump’s tweets:
“The caption for the first tweet Continue reading "Breitbart News Editor: Trump Sharing Unverified Anti-Muslim Videos Is ‘Too Far’"

‘MADMAN’: NY Daily News Throws Gauntlet in Editorial Attacking Trump as ‘Mentally Unwell’

In the wake of yet another unhinged, conspiracy-mongering, morning tweetstorm from the president, the New York Daily News‘ editorial board published a piece claiming President Donald Trump is suffering from a form of poor mental health-induced “mania.” While the paper is known to be New York City’s more liberal publication, seriously questioning Trump’s mental capacity and referring to him as a “madman” — in the literal sense of the term — is still striking. The editorial board wrote the following in their op-ed today:
“After his latest spasm of deranged tweets, only those completely under his spell can deny what growing numbers of Americans have long suspected: The President of the United States is profoundly unstable. He is mad. He is, by any honest layman’s definition, mentally unwell and viciously lashing out… The sheer strangeness of Trump’s behavior leads us to conclude that we are witnessing signs of mania.

Twitter Shocked By Trump’s Retweeting of Graphic Anti-Muslim Videos from Extremist: ‘When You’ve Lost Infowars’

President Donald Trump’s Twitter habits have reached such extreme levels that they hardly have the shock value they once had, but his retweets this morning surprised and bewildered some of his most ardent supporters. The president shared three videos posted by an anti-Muslim activist and leading official of the right-wing UK political party Britain First. The clips were titled “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches,” “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary,” and “Islamist mob pushes teenage boy off roof and beats him to death.” Britain First and the original poster Jayda Fransen are known for attempting to use anti-Muslim content to rile up outrage against immigrants. In response to Trump’s support, Fransen tweeted, “GOD BLESS YOU TRUMP! GOD BLESS YOU AMERICA!” Twitter reacted to the president’s disturbing retweets with an array of anger and shock, as can be seen below. Bredan Cox, the husband Continue reading "Twitter Shocked By Trump’s Retweeting of Graphic Anti-Muslim Videos from Extremist: ‘When You’ve Lost Infowars’"
