‘The Twilight Zone returns’: Scottish newspaper’s TV guide preview of Trump inauguration goes viral

Published

Scotland’s The Sunday Herald struck a chord this week with a hilarious and chilling preview of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.

In its Sunday TV guide section, the paper characterizes Trump’s swearing in as a return of The Twilight Zone.

The Herald guide describes the inauguration as an alternate history, likening it to “What If The Nazis Had Won The Second World War.”

“This huge virtual reality project, which will unfold on TV, in the press, and on Twitter over the next four years sets out to build on an alternative present,” the paper explains. “The story begins in a nightmarish version of 2017 in which huge sections of the US electorate have somehow been duped into voting to make Donald Trump president.”

“It sounds far-fetched, and it is,” the description continues, “but as it goes on it becomes more and more chillingly plausible.”

“It’s a flawed piece, but a disturbing glimpse of the horrors we could stumble into, if we’re not careful.”

"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”

GOP lawmaker goes on extended rant about Schiff to duck Tapper questions about Trump intimidating witnesses

Published

on

On Sunday morning House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) attempted to blow off questions by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether President Donald Trump was trying to intimidate former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with a tweet during her testimony, choosing instead to attack committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.

Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.
