Economist Jeff Sachs was furious with President Donald Trump and the White House’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In a panel discussion on CNN Friday, Sachs went off on everyone, including Trump’s economic advisor Steve Moore and the conservative funders Charles and David Koch.
“It’s just unbelievable,” Sachs said, disgusted. “Every word has been a lie for the last two days. And you have Stephen Moore. And he is from the Heritage Foundation, paid for by the ‘Koch Brothers’ that have engineered the whole story here. So it’s just endless big money of the Koch brothers is behind this. And Mr. Moore and his Heritage Foundation is a Koch Brothers-financed operation. And this is corruption! And it’s so clear and it’s disgusting after a while because they’re all lying.”
Moore tried to refute Sach by claiming that the Heritage Foundation gets less than three percent of their budget from the Koch Brothers.
Sachs called BS.
“I know where I’m getting my facts from! You’re on the take!” he said, insinuating that Moore was being bribed. “I am shocked that you are a correspondent for this network.”

US foes are goading Trump because they know he’s a ‘blow-hard and full of bluster’: CNN analyst
President Donald Trump walked back from the brink of atrocities last week, from calling off a military strike against Iran to pushing back planned Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in major American cities.
On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told anchor Wolf Blitzer how foreign adversaries have been emboldened to challenge Trump — because for all his bombast, they know they are calling a bluff.
"I think Donald Trump is pretty well a known quantity at this point," said Toobin. "I mean, I think people around the world know he's a blowhard, knows he's full of bluster. But that's no reason to get into a war."
New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump
On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.
"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."
