Trump: Obama is the person who really ‘colluded’ with Russia

Published

on

President Donald Trump has accused former President Barack Obama of “colluding” with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.

In a series of Monday morning tweets, Trump accused Obama of doing “NOTHING” about Russia’s efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, and suggested that he’s the one who should be investigated for collusion.

“The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win and did not want to ‘rock the boat,'” Trump wrote. “He didn’t ‘choke,’ he colluded or obstructed, and it did the Dems and Crooked Hillary no good.”

Trump’s reference to “choking” refers to a quote from a former Obama administration official who told the Washington Post he and his team “choked” last week that he felt like in response to last year’s Russian campaign to meddle in the presidential election.

Late last week, the Post reported that Obama was reluctant to make a full public announcement about the depths of the Russian hacking campaign because he believed both that Hillary Clinton was likely to win the election anyway, and he worried that Trump and the Republicans would claim he was trying to “rig” the election in Clinton’s favor if he did go public with evidence of Russian hacking.

A little bit after these tweets, Trump demanded an apology because four months of investigating Russian interference into the election “zero ‘tapes’ of T people colluding.”

In response to the scandal, the University of Pennsylvania announced that would revoke the degree of any graduate found to have given false information in an admission application, cheated on an exam or tempered with their records, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported.

Gov. Ron DeSantis still won’t reveal true COID-19 data — so things are probably much worse

Published

on

Florida reached 213,000 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, as Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to encourage the state to reopen at all costs.

According to CNN's Randi Kaye, the numbers spell "trouble" for the state as it's GOP leaders are opting for a simplistic approach to reopening.

Just in the last 24 hours, they have had more than 1,600 people hospitalized for COVID," she cited. "In the last two weeks, the hospitalization haves gone up 90 percent. The ICU bed demand has gone up 86 percent, and the ventilator usage has gone up 127 percent. The governor is saying he's sending 100 nurses and 47 beds to Jackson Health because they need it so much. But at last check, we've noted that about 56 hospitals around the state have run out of ICU beds, which means they have no space for anyone who needs an ICU bed. This is really critical for Miami-Dade because they make up the 24 percent of the cases throughout the state, so they really need those hospital beds."

Joe Shapiro — the man who took Trump’s SATs for him

Published

on

The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School is being thrust into the spotlight after it was alleged that President Donald Trump was admitted after his sister did his homework for him and a friend named Joe Shapiro took his SATs.

In a new tell-all book by the president's niece, Mary Trump, it was revealed that the Penn grad wasn't quite the "genius" he has claimed to be. He announced he was "first in his class at Wharton," though he never was admitted to the prestigious MBA program at the school and he was never listed on the dean's list the year he graduated, the Penn student newspaper reported in 2017.
