Melania Trump stays seated after husband praises ‘faith and family’ as ‘center of American life’ — and declares ‘in God we trust’

During Donald Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, the president made a bold claim about the pillars of American democracy. Notably, First Lady Melania Trump did not seem particularly moved by his sentiment.

“In America we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy are the the center of American life,” Trump said during his address. “The motto is: In god we trust.”

Melania Trump was “furious” with her husband after the Wall Street Journal reported his lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid porn star Stephanie Clifford (whose stage name is Stormy Daniels) $130,000 in 2016 to hide an affair with the president. The First Lady abruptly cancelled a planned trip to Davos and rode separately from the president to the State of the Union.

CNN White House reporter Kate Bennett even related Melania Trump’s white outfit to female Democratic Senators who protested Trump’s election last year.

“You know, she’s wearing a cream-colored suit there, which I find interesting. Remember last year the female Democratic Senators all wore white,” Bennett noted.

Published

Last month, Lebanon declared a default on debt payments, and this week Argentina said it would delay payment of almost $10 billion in debt.

Many emerging economies were already in dire straits before anybody had heard of COVID-19.

"Even before the new coronavirus arrived, we were seeing public debt close to historic highs in almost all emerging regions," noted Julien Marcilly, chief economist at the French credit-insurance group Coface.

Trump economic adviser says US should ‘bet on President Trump’s intuition’ over science

Published

on

Trump’s economic adviser, Peter Navarro, has been doing the media rounds to discuss the merits of science and medicine because there are very few scientists and medical experts willing to toe the Trump administration’s anti-science line when it comes to their novel coronavirus response. Navarro is the perfect mouthpiece for this administration in a time of crisis because he’s the kind of snake oil salesman that other snake oil salesmen try to avoid. As always, Fox News is a safe space for such bamboozlement.

Rick Wilson goes scorched earth on Trump for putting on a show for his fans while ‘the bodies pile up’

Published

on

In yet another scathing column for the Daily Beast, conservative campaign consultant Rick Wilson lashed out at Donald Trump for using the daily White House task force press briefings on the coronavirus pandemic as a chance to strut and perform for his adoring fans while over 10,000 Americans have died -- so far.

According to the Wilson, who has become one of the president's most vocal critics, "Like some defective and malevolent artificial intelligence that reflexively fires off nuclear missiles long after the world is a blasted radioactive wasteland populated by tribes of cannibal mutants and murderous scavengers, the Trump media machine relentlessly continues its bizarre and destructive propaganda war against America."
