Donald Trump speaks to press

Commenting on her bombshell New York Times report about President Donald Trump’s unprompted admission that he’s “looking forward” to his interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, reporter Maggie Haberman noted another strange exchange she had with the president.

The president, Haberman said, is still “obsessed” with Hillary Clinton, and only said he’d be willing to answer FBI questions under oath after he asked if his former campaign rival had done so.

“He doesn’t seem to know that lying to the FBI even without being under oath is a crime,” Haberman tweeted, noting that perhaps his disgraced ex-adviser Mike Flynn, who was charged with lying to bureau investigators, “can tell him.”

Audio posted shortly after Haberman’s tweet by CNN appears to corroborate her claim that the president is still “obsessed” with Clinton.

“You people won’t say this, but I’ll say it,” Trump told reporters. “I was a much better candidate than her. … I was one of the greatest candidates.”

Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.

A former strategist for former President George W. Bush accused Republican lawmakers of hypocrisy on Sunday for for failing to honestly consider the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Matthew Dowd, a campaign strategist-turned-media-analyst, made the remarks in a tweet on Sunday.

"Deep in their hearts the Republicans in Congress know that if Obama had done one tenth of what President Trump has done they would have voted to impeach and convict him," Dowd wrote. "And Fox News would have been cheering them on. And Trump would have been pushing for it from the sidelines."

‘Opportunistic’ Trump has an ulterior motive for hyping Virginia gun rally on MLK day: MSNBC guest

Published

on

During a panel discussion on MSNBC's "AM Joy," the Reverend Mark Thompson claimed that President Donald Trump is sending a message to his rabid base by hyping up a pro-gun rally in Virginia on Martin Luther King Day.

Addressing the rally to be held in Richmond, which has the entire state on edge and forced lawmakers to ban weapons at the event in the name of safety, Thompson told host Joy Reid it was accident that the president linked the rally to a day when Americans celebrate the life of the civil rights leader who was gunned down in 1968 in Memphis.

Asked about Trump's tweets about the rally, the reverend called them disgraceful.
