It’s Official: Melania and Barron Trump Are D.C.-Bound This Summer

melania-trump A senior White House official reportedly told Fox News that Melania Trump and young son Barron will be joining Donald Trump in D.C. this summer. Melania and the child have lived in New York City for the first four months of Trump’s presidency at great cost to taxpayers. Whether or not the duo would be leaving Trump Tower to go to the White House has been up for debate for months. It was reported that they’d wait to move until the end of the school year in November, but by February there were reports that the former model and her son wouldn’t move at all.  Those were followed up with reports that they would and now it seems like they really will.

Astronaut Goes After Trump With NSFW Quote Used In First Protest in Space

An anonymous group of space experts and scientists known as the Autonomous Space Agency Network just gave the world (universe?) its first protest in space. Naturally, the protest was against Donald Trump. A weather balloon was sent up with a printout of an ASAN tweet attached to it. That tweet quoted Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who said that after seeing the planet from afar, “You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch.’” Thus, the tweet said, “@realDonaldTrump: Look at that you son of a bitch.” An ASAN member told the Washington Post, “We sought to send a message of protest to President Trump against his proposed budget cuts for NASA’s Earth science program, which is invaluable to understanding climate change and Continue reading "Astronaut Goes After Trump With NSFW Quote Used In First Protest in Space"

‘Show Us Your F*cking Taxes, You Emotional Child’: Sarah Silverman Speaks at Tax March

Right now in America’s major cities, a Tax March is underway as demonstrators call on Donald Trump to release his tax returns. Comedian Sarah Silverman joined the call today by addressing the march in New York City. “Show us your fucking taxes, you emotional child,” she chided. When MSNBC caught up to her and asked why she was participating, she said, “I was raised to be an active citizen.” Watch above to hear her lambast Trump for not releasing his returns. He’s been facing down calls to release them for well over a year now. He’s already said he Continue reading "‘Show Us Your F*cking Taxes, You Emotional Child’: Sarah Silverman Speaks at Tax March"

Rep Ted Lieu: Jared Kushner ‘Lied And His Security Clearance Should Be Revoked’

Reports from last week indicated that Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner failed to disclose some Russian meetings while submitting the forms to get top-level security clearance. Governmental officials are not thrilled. Representative Ted Lieu, a Democrat from California, said this to MSNBC’s Joy Reid today:
Kushner’s security clearance absolutely should be suspended. I’ve filled out these forms before … one of the reasons you have thisform is to figure out if the person had contacts with foreign officials. Jared Kushner intentionally omitted his various contacts and he knew these contact were important because of the whole Russia scandal that’s been developing. He lied and he needs to have his security clearance revoked.
Kushner’s lawyer has called the omissions an “oversight.” [image: screengrab] Lindsey: Twitter. Facebook.

Viral Town Hall Questioner Talks ‘Old White Man’ Trump on CNN

A town hall for Arizona’s Jeff Flake went wildly off the rails the other night as constituents began screaming, “Shame on you,” but it was a 16-year-old girl who was the standout star of the event. Deja Foxx confronted the GOP senator about his opposition to funding for Planned Parenthood and how Republicans would be denying her the American Dream if they did away with the family planning and health centers. The video of her quickly went viral. With her newfound fame, Foxx appeared on CNN with Don Lemon last night. This time, she talked directly about Donald Trump. She stated that the president was out of touch with women’s health issues, adding:
He cannot claim that he, an old white man, that he can relate to me. He’s refusing to make a commitment to get to know my story, to get to know the stories of women like me. Continue reading "Viral Town Hall Questioner Talks ‘Old White Man’ Trump on CNN"

University Newspaper’s Staff Release Their Tax Returns, ‘Subtweet’ Trump

A group of college students has done what President Donald Trump will not: they’ve publicly released their tax returns. Seriously, they put their tax returns on their paper. Look. Of course, they supplemented that with a pretty scathing editorial, too, which you can read here. Ahead of Tax Day, the staff of North Dakota State University’s Spectrum wanted to” voice [their] thoughts to make effective change,” Editor-in-Chief Ben Norman told Mediaite. Trump’s decision not to release his tax returns — both during the campaign and now in his presidency — has been a source of “personal frustration” for Norman. “Writing a standard, stand-alone editorial about the tax returns, like national newspapers have already done, seemed ineffective,” Norman explained. “So I thought, I’ve got nothing to hide. Like we suggest to President Trump at the end of our editorial, it’s more effective to show, not just tell.” As Norman had nothing Continue reading "University Newspaper’s Staff Release Their Tax Returns, ‘Subtweet’ Trump"

No One Will Admit It But Never-Trump Conservatives Are Now Officially Vindicated

I’m very capable of changing into anything I want to change to.” –Donald J. Trump, February 10, 2016 Of all the statements that caused me to be one of the few conservatives to never give in to the temptation of selling out to the “Republican” presidential candidacy of a liberal conman who was uniquely unqualified for the job, this one has always stood out. As most people intrinsically understand, the devil you know is usually better than the one you don’t. I have always seen Donald Trump as fitting into the latter category. It has been obvious for quite a while that Trump was never going to being able, or even willing, to fulfill most of his often insanely unrealistic campaign promises. It was also clear that he was very likely to move to the left, just as Arnold Schwarzenegger did here in California if things didn’t immediately work Continue reading "No One Will Admit It But Never-Trump Conservatives Are Now Officially Vindicated"
