Trump calls Madonna ‘disgusting’ for comments at Women’s March — claims ‘she hurt that whole cause’

Published

on

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.

Justice Department sues Omarosa Manigault Newman over financial disclosures

Published

on

The Justice Department on Tuesday sued Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former contestant on "The Apprentice" who campaigned for President Donald Trump and later worked for him in the White House, alleging she failed to file a required public disclosure report after she left 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington, claims Manigault Newman "knowingly and willingly" failed to file the financial disclosure report after corresponding multiple times with attorneys for the White House. It accuses her of violating the Ethics in Government Act (EIGA) by not filing the report, which was required because her salary exceeded $124,406, despite several oral and written reminders from White House ethics lawyers.

Retired admiral could pose serious threat if he decides to run against Iowa Republican: report

Published

On Wednesday, Iowa Starting Line reported that Ret. Adm. Michael Franken is in talks with state and national Democrats about challenging GOP Sen. Joni Ernst.

Franken, who has served as Deputy for Military Operations for AFRICOM, Director of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, and Chief of Legislative Affairs for the Department of the Navy, hails from Sioux Center, a town in the deeply conservative northwest part of the state.

Ernst, who first gained national attention for her 2014 campaign ad about castrating hogs, is a reliable vote for President Donald Trump in the Senate, and the president's poor approval ratings in Iowa have left Democrats hopeful that they can defeat her.
