White House strategy meeting erupted when Corey Lewandowski yelled at everyone in the room: report

Published

on

A White House meeting about strategy for the mid-term elections erupted in a noisy argument when former manager to President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign Corey Lewandowski bawled out presidential advisers and accused the White House of being too “insular,” said a late-breaking story in the New York Times on Thursday.

Maggie Haberman spoke to unnamed officials who were at the Wednesday meeting, which was reportedly attended by Lewandowski, Pres. Trump, White House chief of staff John Kelly, senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, communications director Hope Hicks and White House political director Bill Stepien.

Lewandowski railed against the Republican National Committee and Mr. Stepien’s operation, while one attendee said, “Mr. Lewandowski lashed out at nearly every department but the political shop.”

“Mr. Lewandowski called the White House team too insular, and he said it had done little to tend to fellow Republicans or to conduct outreach with outside groups and supporters,” the Times said.

Trump — reportedly stinging from dual losses by candidates he endorsed in Virginia and Alabama — appeared to agree with Lewandowski’s dressing-down of the president’s circle of advisers, although Kelly was reportedly “put off” by the former campaign manager’s statements.

Lewandowski and Stepien squared off after the meeting outside the Oval Office, then “continu(ed) the exchange elsewhere on the White House grounds. They eventually reached a cordial place, three people briefed on the exchange said.”

Stepien reportedly called America First Policies on Thursday morning — the pro-Trump PAC that currently employs Lewandowski — and asked that their attorney appear at all future briefings with Lewandowski.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
