Michele Bachmann refuses to answer questions about her husband’s clinic

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN) has remained silent on her husband’s Christian counseling center, which reportedly practices a discredited “reparative therapy” aimed at converting patients into heterosexuals.

ABC News presented undercover video Monday that confirms the clinic owned by Bachmann and her husband, Dr. Marcus Bachmann, does indeed try to “pray away the gay.”

When News8 anchor RaeChelle Davis asked Bachmann on Monday about the hidden camera video, the congresswoman refused to answer the question.

“Well, I’m running for the presidency of the United States and I am here today to talk about job creation,” she said.

When pressed for an answer, Bachmann against responded: “Well, I’m here to run for the presidency of the United States,” adding she was “very proud” of her and her husband’s business.

When ABC News confronted Bachmann about reparative therapy being practiced at her clinic, she again refused to talk about it.

“I’m focusing on turning the economy around and on jobs so that’s what I’m focusing on,” she responded.

The American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association have both said there is no evidence that reparative therapy can change sexual orientation.

“This is so far outside the mainstream it’s practically on Mars,” Dr. Jack Drescher told ABC News. He added that the therapy could actually harm patients.

Marcus said in a radio interview unearthed by ThinkProgress that “barbarians need to be educated” when asked how parents should deal with non-heterosexual children.

“They need to be disciplined,” he said last year on Point of View Radio Talk Show. “Just because someone feels it or thinks it doesn’t mean that we are supposed to go down that road. That’s what is called the sinful nature.”

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Trump betting he can win re-election by spinning new conspiracy theories to explain investigations: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump's association with Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election may be over. But that does not mean the president is free from oversight.

According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.

Meet the mysterious conservative lawyer who keeps turning up in the Russia probes

Published

on

A prominent conservative lawyer keeps showing up in dramas central to the Trump administration and its battles with Congress—and it turns out he has intimate knowledge of Felix Sater’s intelligence work for the U.S. government while he was working with Trump.

The Moscow-born Sater is the financial criminal and violent felon who worked closely with Trump for years while simultaneously serving as a long-term informant for the FBI and other national security agencies.

In 2015 and into mid-2016, Sater pushed for the development of a Trump Tower in Moscow with his old friend Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime fixer, while trying to enlist support from the Russian government for Trump’s campaign.
