Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act

Fox’s Laura Ingraham was among the many people who this week said dumb, clumsy, or rotten things about the family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, but on Tuesday night, before Trump announced his executive action, Ingraham ran an extensive segment from on-location at the border south of San Diego. The lengthy opening segment to The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday was, in contrast to the icy detachment of White House adviser Stephen Miller, very cognizant of the well-being of the children who have become the responsibility of the American taxpayer. In keeping with her “summer camp” remark, she was highly focused on the quality of care for the kids at the known facilities, as opposed to the harm of being apart from their parents or the horror of American government officials taking them away. Nevertheless, at least some care was taken with the topic. The situation was “not Continue reading "Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act"

WATCH LIVE: Trump Holds Rally in Duluth

President Donald Trump will be holding a rally in Duluth, MN on protecting American workers Wednesday night. He will also be stumping for Pete Stauber for the Eighth Congressional seat. The rally is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. EST. Trump arrives in Minnesota on the heels of signing an executive order which aims to reunite immigrant children with their families. The president, however, tends to cover a vast array of topics during rallies which are not directly related to the subject matter POTUS initially planned to discuss; the president will likely be eager to discuss the executive order as a triumph in his administration’s immigration policy. This is also one of several rallies Trump has held which focus on the American worker. Watch above, via The White House. [image via screengrab]

Right there in lights, the huge sign is advertising Trump’s Twitter feed as a way to “stay up to date.” Jacobs also noted video of Lara Trump was being shown on the big screens pre-rally.

Trump Reportedly Threw Starburst At Angela Merkel During G-7: ‘Don’t Say I Never Gave You Anything’

If you can’t beat them, throw delicious chewy candy at ’em! According to CBS Senior Global Affairs Contributor Ian Bremmer, President Donald Trump, who was particularly petulant throughout the G7 Summit, threw a couple of Starburst candies on the table in front of German Chancellor Angela Merkel after begrudgingly agreeing to sign a communiqué committing to a “rules-based international order.” “The advisers had been working on it until 3:00 that morning, straight through the night, including [Economic Advisor Larry] Kudlow from the United States, and Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that he felt like they were ganging up on him,” Bremmer explained. “He eventually agreed. He said, okay, he’ll sign it. At that point, he stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Threw Starburst At Angela Merkel During G-7: ‘Don’t Say I Never Gave You Anything’"

Baltimore Sun Critic Skewers Fox News as Trump’s ‘Propaganda Puppets’: Like We’re in ‘Communist Country’

Fox News got an earful from media analyst for the Baltimore Sun David Zurawik Wednesday. Speaking with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Wednesday, Zurawik said that Fox News’ media strategy of sucking up to President Donald Trump is going to bite them. “It’s a bad strategy. It looks good now, ’cause they have ratings,” he said. “But I don’t think there’s any thinking person in this country that doesn’t believe Trump’s going to end up in infamy and if you’re in bed with him as a media company the way Fox News has become, you’re going to live with that stain. You’re gonna destroy your brand even with your base.” “Their primetime lineup… is straight propaganda, it’s propaganda puppets, it’s unbelievable,” he added. “It’s like a communist country when you watch that show. It’s beyond state TV.” Zurawik then called out Tucker Carlson in particular for telling his viewers to Continue reading "Baltimore Sun Critic Skewers Fox News as Trump’s ‘Propaganda Puppets’: Like We’re in ‘Communist Country’"

GOP Rep. Says ‘Nobody Applauded’ Trump’s Joke About Sanford: It Was ‘Display of Pettiness and Insecurity’

On Wednesday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) had a very different view than Donald Trump of  Tuesday immigration meeting with House Republicans — especially the president’s pointed joke aimed at newly defeated Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC). Yesterday, reports surfaced that Trump had mocked Rep. Mark Sanford who just lost his primary, in part, because of Trump’s primary day Sanford-slamming tweet. “Is Mark Sanford here? I just want to congratulate him on running a great race,” Trump reportedly said, according to multiple media reports. He then called him “nasty,” prompting boos. While Trump recalled the GOPers in the room “applauded and laughed loudly” at his joke, Amash, who was there, seemed to think people were far less amused by him calling out their colleague who will not be returning next term. Here is Trump’s version: “Had a great meeting with the House GOP last night at the Capitol. They applauded and laughed Continue reading "GOP Rep. Says ‘Nobody Applauded’ Trump’s Joke About Sanford: It Was ‘Display of Pettiness and Insecurity’"
