A second U.S. judge blocked President Donald Trump’s administration from enforcing new rules that undermine an Obamacare requirement for employers to provide insurance that covers women’s birth control.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland, California, on Thursday said the federal government likely did not follow proper administrative procedures in promulgating the new rules, and put them on hold while a lawsuit challenging their legality unfolds. The decision follows a similar ruling from a federal judge in Philadelphia last week.

Internet stunned as pro-Trump reporter uses White House briefing to suggest the president depose Joe Scarborough

Published

At Thursday's White House briefing, OANN reporter Chanel Rion suggested to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany that President Donald Trump should welcome a defamation suit from MSNBC host and former congressman Joe Scarborough — so that Trump can depose him and further investigate the conspiracy theory that he murdered staffer Lori Klausutis.

Even McEnany herself seemed taken aback by the suggestion, saying "I have no further comments."

Holy Shit!
