‘Evil Losers’: President Trump Condemns Manchester Terrorist Attack

Donald Trump took a moment out of his tour of the Middle East to address the catastrophic terrorist attack in Manchester, England last night. Speaking during a press conference in Bethlehem with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, President Trump offered a brief statement condemning the attack, calling the perpetrators “evil losers.” “I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack and to the many killed and their families.” said Trump. “So many young beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.” The president continued in his own unique way. “I wont call them monsters, because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, losers because that’s what they are, they’re losers, and we’ll have more of them, but they’re losers. Just remember that.” The death Continue reading "‘Evil Losers’: President Trump Condemns Manchester Terrorist Attack"

Trump Reportedly Asked Intelligence Chiefs to Publicly Push Back Against FBI Probe

Trump A new report states that President Trump asked top intelligence leaders to join him in publicly denying that his presidential campaign coordinated with the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 election. The Washington Post reports that Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and Michael S. Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency, were both asked by Trump to “push back” against the FBI after James Comey announced that a collusion investigation was underway. Trump’s request reportedly came after the former FBI director confirmed the probe before the House Intelligence Committee, and both Coats and Rogers declined Trump’s requests. From WaPo:
Trump made his appeal to Coats days after Comey’s testimony, according to officials. That same week, Trump telephoned Rogers to make a similar appeal. In his call with Rogers, Trump urged the NSA director to speak out publicly if there was no evidence of collusion, according Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Asked Intelligence Chiefs to Publicly Push Back Against FBI Probe"

Fareed Zakaria Again Praises Trump After ‘Nuanced’ Islam Address: ‘The Kind of Speech Obama Could Have Given’

Fareed Zakaria again has glowing words for President Donald Trump’s foreign policy. A little more than a month after praising Trump for making the call to launch tomahawk missiles into Syria, Zakaria applauded Trump’s address on Islam Sunday in Saudi Arabia. “It’s going very well,” Zakaria said of the trip as a whole. “In terms of both the symbolism, and in one important respect, the substance — which was the speech that President Trump gave in Riyadh on Islam.” Zakaria even went so far as to favorably compare Trump to his predecessor for remarks that Zakaria called “cautious” and “nuanced” — remarks in which Trump went back on a campaign pledge by not using the words “radical Islamic terrorism.” “It was, frankly, the kind of speech President Obama could have given,” Zakaria said. He added, “It had the kind of nuance and empathy that people look for.” The platitudes Continue reading "Fareed Zakaria Again Praises Trump After ‘Nuanced’ Islam Address: ‘The Kind of Speech Obama Could Have Given’"

Christie: If I Were President-Elect, ‘I Wouldn’t Let General Flynn in the White House’

You may remember that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie headed up Donald Trump‘s transition team before Mike Pence did, and today he reiterated that he had concerns about Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. In remarks flagged by CNN, Christie expanded upon comments he made weeks ago when he said Flynn wasn’t his “cup of tea.” He said, “I didn’t think that he was someone who would bring benefit to the President or to the administration, and I made that very clear to candidate Trump, and I made it very clear to President-elect Trump.” And he rather bluntly added, “If I were president-elect of the United States, I wouldn’t let General Flynn in the White House, let alone give him Continue reading "Christie: If I Were President-Elect, ‘I Wouldn’t Let General Flynn in the White House’"

‘Zero Evidence’: CNN Calls Out Fox News For Continuing to Peddle Debunked Seth Rich Conspiracy

CNN is calling Fox News out for continuing to push the debunked conspiracy theory that DNC staffer Seth Rich was murdered over a connection to Wikileaks. Newt Gingrich was the latest to peddle the Rich conspiracy over the Fox News airwaves, carrying the torch from both Hannity and Fox & Friends — both of which have devoted numerous segments to the Rich story. Appearing on Fox & Friends Sunday, the former House speaker said:
We have this very strange story now of this young man who worked for the Democratic National Committee, who apparently was assassinated at 4 in the morning, having given WikiLeaks something like 53,000 emails and 17,000 attachments. Nobody’s investigating that, and what does that tell you about what’s going on? Because it turns out, it wasn’t the Russians. It was this young guy who, I suspect, was disgusted by the corruption of the Democratic National Committee.

What the Hell is Going on with Sean Hannity and the Nutty Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory?!

Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 3.04.10 PM I despise nonsensical conspiracy theories. In fact, despite the fact that morons often confuse some of my contrarian opinions with conspiracies, I am a strong anti-conspiracy theorist. I simply believe that human beings are very poorly designed to engage in large schemes, especially in this era of social media where nearly everyone has a recording device on them at all times. But even for those who also disdain these nutty theories, the insane narrative currently being promoted endlessly by Sean Hannity on radio and television regarding murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich being the REAL source of the WikiLeaks hacking should earn a special place of scorn. Sean Hannity is blatantly lying to his audience, against the wishes of a grieving family, all so he can score points with the Trump Cult in a way which might convince them that the whole Trump/Russia story really is “Fake News.” It Continue reading "What the Hell is Going on with Sean Hannity and the Nutty Seth Rich Conspiracy Theory?!"
