MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace calls out Trump for exploiting Kelly’s son — and asks if he can go any lower

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace upbraided President Donald Trump for trying to politically exploit the slain son of his chief of staff as rationalization for the president’s false claims about his Oval Office predecessors.

“I started this show one day by saying that the bottom was calling, it wanted to know if we were there yet,” MSNBC anchor and former George W. Bush White House communications director Nicole Wallace reminded. “It feels like the right time to re-up the question.”

“Is anything sacred?” Wallace wondered, in disbelief over Trump continuing to question how previous presidents contact families of those who make the ultimate sacrifice.

“Covering a man for who scandals and mistruths are served up in Costco-sized portions overwhelms the circuits, but here are some of the previous moments that we thought represented the bottom at the time they occurred,” Wallace explained, while introducing a video montage of some of Trump’s most embarrassing efforts to find the bottom.

“So it turns out, with this president, there’s always a lower rung from which to swing,” Wallace said angrily, explaining Trump invoked of Kelly’s son, Marine 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010.

Trump apparently finally called the widow of US Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger.

Sgt. Johnson’s widow was told, “he knew what he signed up for.” Johnson’s widow is pregnant with their third child.

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Trump betting he can win re-election by spinning new conspiracy theories to explain investigations: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump's association with Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election may be over. But that does not mean the president is free from oversight.

According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.

Meet the mysterious conservative lawyer who keeps turning up in the Russia probes

Published

on

A prominent conservative lawyer keeps showing up in dramas central to the Trump administration and its battles with Congress—and it turns out he has intimate knowledge of Felix Sater’s intelligence work for the U.S. government while he was working with Trump.

The Moscow-born Sater is the financial criminal and violent felon who worked closely with Trump for years while simultaneously serving as a long-term informant for the FBI and other national security agencies.

In 2015 and into mid-2016, Sater pushed for the development of a Trump Tower in Moscow with his old friend Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime fixer, while trying to enlist support from the Russian government for Trump’s campaign.
