Published

on

First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Tuesday evening to on CBS’ The Late Show and provided a very colorful Top 10 fun facts on gardening.

Obama offered up some interesting “facts” to host David Letterman, from mentioning how the average American will eat half a radish in his or her lifetime, to pointing out that if one has a green thumb, they might actually have a case of scurvy.

But she arguably saved the best fact for last, encouraging the audience that with just enough effort, they could make their own “Barack-oli” just like she can.

Steve Schmidt breaks down why Joe Biden should be an ‘easy’ choice for moderate Republicans

Published

on

On MSNBC Friday, former GOP strategist Steve Schmidt criticized Sen. Lisa Murkowski's (R-AK) claim that she was struggling over whether to support the president — and laid out why she should unequivocally decide she doesn't.

"We saw the president direct violence against peaceful protesters this week, and seen the president lie to the country nearly 20,000 times," said Schmidt.

Published

on

On Friday, the conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump — this time using the criticism of his former Defense Secretary James Mattis, and comparing and contrasting their leadership ability.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."
