John Kelly’s allies now realize Trump is the one leaking dirt on him to the press: NYT reporter

Published

on

There have been several leaks out of the White House recently that paint an unflattering portrait of White House chief of staff John Kelly, and the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman says that Kelly’s allies now believe the leaks are coming from President Donald Trump himself.

Writing on Twitter, Haberman described low morale at the Trump White House and she said that many White House staffers believe that their own colleagues are lying about their roles in the handling of former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was fired after it was revealed that both of his former wives accused him of domestic abuse.

“Several White House aides have described a diffuse situation as opposed to a more precise one last year when the focus of attacks was either Priebus or Bannon,” Haberman writes. “Most think the people directly involved in retaining Porter are lying to some degree.”

Haberman then said morale had sunk to a low point not seen since the president’s insistence after Charlottesville that there were “very fine people” attending a white nationalist rally — and she said that Kelly’s allies think Trump is trying to oust him through leaking dirt to the press.

“The morale was already quite low in the Kelly era for several staff,” she writes. “But this is worse than it’s been since Charlottesville. And after dismissing Kelly dismissal talks as spread by Mooch/others, people close to Kelly now realize it’s coming from Trump.”

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.
