Trump accuser tells Melania: You’re doing exactly what your husband accuses Hillary of

Published

on

Republican nominee Donald Trump has been under fire since the Washington Post released audio in which he is bragging about sexually assaulting women.

As various women have come forward with accusations of their own, Trump’s wife Melania came to his defense during a Monday interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. She echoed her husband’s statements that all of the allegations are lies, and said “I believe my husband. I believe my husband.”

She added that Trump was reportedly “egged on” into engaging in “boy talk” with Billy Bush in 2005. One of Trump’s accusers, Jessica Leeds wasn’t having it.

Leeds, who claims Trump groped her 35 years ago while on a plane, told TMZ that Melania’s defense of her husband is akin to Hillary Clinton’s defense of Bill in the 90s.

She said, “The wives are in a difficult position if they want to save their marriage. They’ll make compromises and accept the good with the bad.”

She added, “I feel it’s terrible Melania is being viewed as sympathetic when Donald is beating up on Hillary for doing the same with Bill.”

Trump has used the narrative that Bill Clinton is an alleged sexual abuser time and time again, seemingly to suggest that he himself is not also a perpetrator of sexual violence.

Trump has also claimed on various occasions that Hillary either defended Bill, or threatened his accusers. However, Melania’s defense of her husband is playing the exact same hand, according to Leeds.

Leeds isn’t the only one who noticed the similarities between the Melania and Hillary. Check out the clip below from NBC Nightly News senior editor and writer Bradd Jaffy.

Republicans have gone silent about their internal polls because they show a ‘Democratic rout’: Election analyst

Published

on

On Saturday, writing for CNN, elections forecaster Harry Enten argued that it's not just public polls showing President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans losing big in November — it's the GOP's private internal polls, too.

"Perhaps, it's not surprising then that when one party puts out a lot more internal polls than normal, it is good for their side," wrote Enten. "Parties tend to release good polling when they have it. Since 2004, there has been a near perfect correlation (+0.96 on a scale from -1 to +1) between the share of partisan polls released by the Democrats and the November results."

Kayleigh McEnany slammed for press conference stunts designed to duck tough Trump questions

Published

on

In a report on Kayleigh McEnany's tenure as White House press secretary at Politico, critics took special notice of her refusal to give straight answers about Donald Trump and turning every inquiry back on reporters in the form of attacking the media for even asking.

Using the press secretary's contentious Tuesday press conference where she dismissed press attempts to get to the bottom of the Russian bounty reports, and what the president knows about it, as a springboard, Politico found critics who called McEnany out for her deflections and distractions.

Trump ridiculed for plan to build a ‘National Garden of American Heroes’: ‘Surprised he didn’t include Zorro’

Published

on

At President Donald Trump's Independence Day Speech at Mount Rushmore, he pledged to sign an executive order establishing the "National Garden of American Heroes" in reaction to efforts to tear down monuments glorifying racist historical figures. Although many of the people proposed by the administration for the garden, like Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr., are fairly universally beloved, others, like former President Ronald Reagan, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, and evangelical preacher Billy Graham, are sharply partisan choices.

The White House just sent out the text of the executive order. It creates a task force to recommend how and where to create this new garden. And it specifies the statues that should be in the park (including Antonin Scalia): pic.twitter.com/fGjFbr4JtQ
