Anthony Scaramucci joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo in primetime Tuesday night, and naturally one of the first things to be brought up was Steve Bannon’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Back in August of last year, Scaramucci was hired and then (very) quickly fired as White House communications director after an interview of him went public. In the interview Scaramucci discussed his disdain for the then-White House Chief Strategist, using especially colorful language. Cuomo started out saying, “The president says he always hires the best people, how do you explain him having Steve Bannon?” “Well, I would say that Steve had a voice. Steve was a good writer. Steve — the biggest problem that Steve had in my opinion and I said it, I didn’t say it perfectly, he was more focused on Steve.” Scaramucci added, “Well, he’s not a team player.” The Mooch Continue reading "Scaramucci Piles on ‘Bad Hire’ Steve Bannon: ‘He Just Didn’t Want To Play Inside the Sandbox’"
It appears Hollywood is inspiring a fashion trend on Capitol Hill. After dozens of actresses wore black to Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards in order to make a statement against sexual harassment in the industry and show solidarity with the #TimesUp movement, Democratic women are now reportedly wearing black to President Trump‘s first State of the Union address later this month. “This is a culture change that is sweeping the country, and Congress is embracing it,” Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told NBC News. The silent protest, which is being organized by the Democratic Women’s Working Group, invites both men and women on both sides of the aisle to join in. Speier was the congresswoman who publicized Congress’ decades-long funding of sexual harassment settlements. However, it’s worth noting that last year, Democratic women wore all-white to Trump’s first joint address to Congress… also as the form of a silent protest. Quite the

On MSNBC tonight, Joy Reid and her panel were amused by what President Trump revealed during his televised bipartisan meeting on immigration. Reid noted how Trump seems less like how he sounded during the campaign and more like Marco Rubio. “I think,” Rick Wilson said, “Donald Trump got his Gang of 8 tattoo tonight and the members-only jacket for RINO cuck immigration squishes, because this is a guy who literally sat there today and shredded the entire Bannon-Steve Miller agenda on building the wall and throwing out all the brown people. It was a clown show.” As she laughed, Reid wondered who’s in charge of breaking the news to Ann Coulter (who hasn’t been happy about today’s news). Jason Johnson, meanwhile, noted how Democrats don’t necessarily need to take a strong position yet because it’s not really clear what position the President himself will hold weeks Continue reading "MSNBC Panel Goes Off on Trump at Immigration Meeting: He ‘Got His Gang of 8 Tattoo’"
Tucker Carlson faced off against Univision anchor Jorge Ramos to discuss immigration after President Trump‘s televised bipartisan meeting that was held at the White House. Ramos began by applauding Carlson of being critical of the president during his opening monologue. But things turned sour rather quickly when Ramos insisted that the 11 million immigrants are here illegally “because of us.” “It’s not because of me,” Carlson pushed back. “It’s because a small number of employers wanted to pay less for labor and the Democratic Party wanted new voters. I didn’t do that!” Ramos doubled down on his argument, claiming that both he and Carlson are guilty of “supply and demand” and that they’re both “responsible for them.” “Because we have taken the time to build a functioning country. A clean, safe country with a working justice system and a thriving economy, then we are somehow morally Continue reading "Tucker Carlson, Jorge Ramos Spar Over Immigration: ‘Accusing People You Disagree With of Bigotry!’"
On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson opened his show with harsh criticisms of President Trump for his televised bipartisan meeting on immigration at the White House. The Fox News host called the meeting a “weird scene” because it was a departure from Trump’s campaign rhetoric in 2016 and that now he was making a deal with the “swamp creatures” he accused of “wrecking the country” and that he would sign any deal that makes it to his desk, “even a bad one.” He slammed the president for initially agreeing with Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) when she proposed handling DACA separately from everything else. He continued:
“It was a completely different Donald Trump from the one we watched on the campaign trail just two years ago… In 2016, Donald Trump ran on the premise that America’s borders ought to be real. That the repeated amnesties of the past have betrayed voters Continue reading "Tucker Carlson Blasts Trump on Immigration: ‘What Was The Point of Running for President?’"
Ann Coulter appeared with Lou Dobbs tonight on FBN to elaborate on her frustrations with President Trump‘s immigration meeting. Earlier today, she tweeted it was a “DACA lovefest,” and when Dobbs asked Coulter for her take, she said this:
“When Kevin McCarthy is the hardliner on immigration in the room, I think we can call this the lowest day in the Trump Presidency. I mean, he was clearly trying to overcome the bad press of this Michael Wolff book by showing he’s in command, but in fact what he did was fulfill every description of him in the Michael Wolff book. He doesn’t listen. He has no command of the facts. He agrees with the last person who speaks with him.”Dobbs quickly broke in to say, “We don’t need to go through the whole damn book, it’s trash.” “No, It isn’t!” Coulter quickly said. “He Continue reading "Ann Coulter Slams Trump’s Immigration Meeting: ‘Lowest Day in the Trump Presidency’"
A new report suggests another Trump administration shake-up may be coming, with big names like National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and White House Counsel Don McGahn being floated as potential officials on the way out. As reported by CNN, officials in the White House were informed that they have until the end of January to decide whether or not they plan on staying with the Trump administration through the 2018 midterms or if they wish to move on before then. The reasoning behind this deadline is to add a “sense of order to an anticipated staffing exodus.” CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash, while on The Situation Room, broke down her reporting:
“The president has — we are told — said some things about his disregard with some of the actions that McGahn has made… With H.R. McMaster, he is an active duty general. He Continue reading "There May Be Another White House Staff Shake-Up Coming"
