WATCH: The Spirit of Hillary Clinton Is Practically Looming Over Trump in the White House

This morning, Donald Trump gave a tour of the White House to some eager reporters and guests. That’s not important right now, though. What is important is the moment he walks under the portrait of former First Lady Hillary Clinton. Trump just can’t escape that so-called nasty woman (and to be honest, she just can’t escape Trump and his administration). So, let’s take some bets. Is this image going to upset Trump like photos of him from certain angles reportedly do? If he does get upset, who will shoulder the blame? White House staff? The crooked media?

Report: Katrina Pierson Denied White House Position After Gunning For Sean Spicer’s Job

  Katrina Pierson According to a senior Donald Trump campaign official, former campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson was denied a position in the Trump administration after she badmouthed Sean Spicer and intimated that she should have his job as White House press secretary instead. The Washingtonian‘s Elaina Plott‘s sat down with Pierson, who now enjoys a lower profile as part of the pro-Trump America First Policies 501 (c)(4) nonprofit. Pierson told Plott she had been offered a role in the White House, but decided on her own not to take it. “It was funny because, I think it might have been a week later…I called ‘em up and said, ‘You know, I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I’m gonna go over to the c4,'” she recounted. “I talked to… staff, who were very disappointed. But they understood. Everybody said, ‘Do what you feel is in your heart.’” Continue reading "Report: Katrina Pierson Denied White House Position After Gunning For Sean Spicer’s Job"

Critics Blast #TrumpCare on Twitter: ‘You Might Die if You Get Sick, But Hillary’s Emails.’

shutterstock_459535759 Since Republicans announced their replacement for Obamacare on Monday, Democratic and non-partisan analysts have voiced broad concerns that the new measure would result in more American left uninsured. Despite adamant defenses from GOP members of Congress, that criticism continued to rise, reaching Twitter on Tuesday morning in the form of #TrumpCare. Snarky Twitter users used the hashtag to poke fun at the bill’s alleged failings. Even United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) couldn’t resist getting in on the act.

In New Tweet, Donald Trump Falsely Blames Obama For Violent Gitmo Detainees Released Under Bush

Trump In a Tuesday morning tweet, President Donald Trump falsely blamed his predecessor Barack Obama for over a hundred Guantanamo Bay detainees who returned to terrorism following their release. Trump tweeted the following: Trump’s figure is actually right on the nose: a 2016 Office of the Director of National Intelligence report found that 122 former Gitmo detainees have returned to the battlefield. But his attribution of their release to Obama is false; the vast majority of those detainees were released under President George W. Bush, a fellow Republican. Only nine of the 122 were released by Obama. Unsurprisingly, Trump’s tweet came thirty minutes after a Fox & Friends segment cited the exact same stat (Fox News did not incorrectly blame Obama, however).

GOP Congressman: Low Income Americans Should Buy Healthcare ‘Rather Than Getting That New iPhone’

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) appeared on CNN’s New Day, Tuesday, to defend the Republican replacement for Obamacare that was rolled out to the public yesterday. The proposal has already faced heat from Democratic and non-partisan organizations who claim it will lead to a growth in the U.S. uninsured population. Congressman Chaffetz said the Republican plan would require Americans to make their own health choices, a situation he explained in the following way:
“Americans have choices and they’ve got to make a choice and so maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest it in their own healthcare. They’ve got to make those decisions themselves.”
“So in other words, for lower income Americans, you’re saying this is going to require some sacrifice on their part?” Continue reading "GOP Congressman: Low Income Americans Should Buy Healthcare ‘Rather Than Getting That New iPhone’"

‘They Don’t Realize Rome is Burning’: Mika Brzezinski Hammers Trump Again Over Wiretapping Claims

Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski opened Tuesday’s edition of the show with a renewed assault on Donald Trump’s claims of wiretapping by his predecessor Barack Obama. The allegations, made over Twitter, came with no evidence and have been roundly denied by current and former leaders of U.S. intelligence agencies. Brzezinski suggested she had her own sources telling her that Trump knew he had erred. “I have some reporting talking to a few people who are either close to the White House or inside it that the president actually knows he messed up and won’t admit it, just refuses to admit it,” said Brzezinski. “Everyone in that inner cadre … they’re so busy trying to either save their hides or get each other’s jobs that they don’t realize Rome is burning.” “This president’s style is to let people fight it out,” quipped regular Continue reading "‘They Don’t Realize Rome is Burning’: Mika Brzezinski Hammers Trump Again Over Wiretapping Claims"

‘I’ve Actually Muted the President on Twitter’: Anderson Cooper Tells Stephen Colbert How he Manages Trump Tweets

Anderson Cooper took the stage last night as a guest of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he made the surprising admission that he personally no longer has interest in President Donald Trump’s Twitter account. ‘I’ve actually muted the president on Twitter,’ he said to laughter. “Don’t tell him.” “You just said that you mute the president of the United States,” said Colbert in semi-disbelief. “I just don’t want to have that drama in my life,” replied Cooper — maybe half jokingly. “I just want to be calm.” Cooper then weighed in more forcefully, saying that constant tweet reporting has become a “large distraction” but that it was a legitimately fascinating view into the president’s state of mine. “This is like a real-time seismograph of the inner workings of the president’s head,” said Cooper. “He’s like a live wire of emotion. We had to wait for decades Continue reading "‘I’ve Actually Muted the President on Twitter’: Anderson Cooper Tells Stephen Colbert How he Manages Trump Tweets"
