During a Thursday night interview with Sean Hannity, President Donald Trump put singer-songwriter Madonna on blast, calling her “disgusting” for her comments during the Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21, 2017.

“Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged,” she told the crowd on Saturday. “Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House … but I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”

“Honestly, she’s disgusting,” Trump told Hannity. “I think she hurt herself very badly. I think she hurt that whole cause.” However, the resistance to Trump has been essentially incessant since his inauguration, with demonstrations happening nearly everyday since Jan. 20. It appears that Madonna’s comments didn’t hurt the cause after all.

The singer defended her comments on Sunday, noting that they were taken “wildly out of context.” Trump told Hannity on Thursday, “I thought she was in particular – I thought what she said was disgraceful to our country.”

Trump seems to be pulling a page from Newt Gingrich’s book. Gingrich was on Fox & Friends on Jan. 23 where he argued, “Madonna ought to be arrested for saying she thought about blowing up the White House.”

The president also said he had made up his mind about his Supreme Court pick, though he maintains he could change his mind at the last minute.

Trump also said that he hopes he can convince Americans that Obamacare is a disaster. According to a RealClearPolitics poll, Obamacare currently has higher approval ratings than President Trump does.

The president also called waterboarding “just short of torture” but proclaimed that it isn’t torture. General Mattis said that it doesn’t work, “so we won’t use it,” Trump said. But he reiterated that the United States won’t use it. “But I believe it works.”

Trump also confessed that he is not concerned about a balanced budget. “Sometimes you have to fuel the well in order to really get the economy going and we really have to take care of our military and our military is more important to me than a balanced budget,” he said.

His philosophy that one must stimulate the economy is a strategy that was used by former President Barack Obama in 2009, which the Republicans strongly opposed because they claimed it would add to the deficit.

Trump also mentioned that the letter he received from former President Barack Obama was “something to think about.” He was shocked by the kindness given how “nasty” the 2016 campaign was.

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

on

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ — in 11 pm conspiracy-filled rant

Published

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
