‘What are you talking about?’:Tapper slaps down Trump advocate claiming non-existent interview was cancelled

Published

on

Roger Stone, one of Donald Trump’s biggest boosters, took to Twitter Monday night to complain that CNN’s Jake Tapper inexplicably cancelled an interview slated for Tuesday.

According to Tapper, he has no idea what Stone is talking about.

Stone, whose stock in trade has been conspiracy theories, was banished from most cable shows during the late days of the election before appearing infrequently with Infowars’ Alex Jones to peddle whatever stories he was selling.

At a time when President Trump has declared war on CNN, accusing the network of “fake news” and withholding key spokespeople from appearing, Stone appeared to be accusing the network of bias by tweeting, “CNN canceled my interview with @jaketapper tomorrow- further proof CNN is not a news organization but shameless purveyors of fake news.”

Not one to shy away from a fight — or a false accusation — Tapper responded in kind on Twitter, writing: “@RogerJStoneJr respectfully, no one on my staff has any idea what you’re talking about. With whom were you speaking?”

Having made the accusation, and hearing back from Tapper, Stone failed to back up his accusation over six hours later.

Donald Trump’s Secretary of State apparently thinks Spanish is spoken in Lebanon

Published

The president of United States is often criticized for getting his facts wrong, especially when it comes to understanding the world.

Trump made up the country of "Nambia" while not knowing that Bhutan and Nepal (which he pronounced "nipple") are real countries. He said the country of Belgium "is a beautiful city" and once told the prime minister of India that the country does not share a border with China (their shared border is 2,500 miles).

Jason Crow lays out the human cost of Trump’s Ukraine scheme — citing his military experience

Published

on

On the second day of the impeachment trial, Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO), a veteran and one of the House impeachment managers, clearly laid out the risk that President Donald Trump's Ukraine scheme posed to human life — and drew from his own experience in the military.

"I know something about counter-battery radar," said Crow. "In 2005 I was an Army Ranger serving in a special operations task force in Afghanistan. We were at a remote operating base along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. And frequently, the insurgents that we were fighting would launch rockets and missiles onto our small base. But luckily we were provided with counter-battery radar. The 20, 30, 40 seconds before those rockets and mortars rained down on us, an alarm would sound, and we would run out from our tents and jump into our concrete bunkers and wait for the attack to end. This is not a theoretical exercise, and the Ukrainians know it."

‘Sealed off’: China isolates city of virus outbreak

Published

on

The Chinese city at the heart of a deadly virus outbreak is under effective quarantine, with outward flights and trains suspended, subways halted and large public events cancelled as doctors in full-body protective suits treat patients.

The coronavirus has spread across China and beyond, with 17 people killed and more than 500 infected in an outbreak that started in Wuhan -- a central city of 11 million people described by state media as "the main battlefield" against the disease.

Most cases are in Wuhan, a major transport hub with a seafood market that has been identified as the epicentre of the epidemic. A few cases involving people who visited Wuhan have been found elsewhere in the United States and some Asian countries.
