‘Nuts day in the news’: Rachel Maddow scrambles to update list of Trump departures

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow joked with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes about another “nuts day in the news” with ongoing wave of departures from the White House

“I have a feeling that eventually we’ll look back on this day and have more clarity what happened, but right now it feels like a complete spaghetti dinner and all related courses thrown up against the wall for us to try and figure out,” Maddow noted. “Thanks for joining us on what now passes for a totally normal typical Tuesday in American news.”

Maddow then proceeded to list all the recent departures from the administration. Maddow has been continuously updating the her list.

“Just in the past couple weeks we have had to move my camera position so that we can show you this bigger wall, so we could make room to add a third column here on this wall,” Maddow noted. “We were two columns before.”

“We have gone to the big wall and three columns,” Maddow continued. “Anybody else going tonight?”

“Well, actually I should let you know that MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace stands by her multiple-source reporting that Trump’s second national security advisor after Mike Flynn, H.R. McMaster is due out any day now,” Maddow reminded. “Due out by the end of the month.”

Ben Carson is Donald Trump’s faulty human shield against accusations of racism

Published

Ben Carson is back in the news — after another long absence — because Donald Trump has once again been accused of racism.

This article originally appeared at Salon.

The secretary of Housing and Urban Development is the only African-American member of the president’s Cabinet, and is often trotted out to clean up after Trump makes a mess too obviously problematic for the media to ignore. While Trump has tried to spin his recent racist attacks on four progressive freshman congresswomen as a strategic maneuver meant to manipulate Democratic infighting to his advantage, Carson's re-emergence from his stupor should be a clear indication that the president’s team recognizes the damage that can be caused by his unforced errors.

An illegal trend could be emerging after Trump let Kellyanne Conway off the hook for breaking federal law

Published

on

Federal workplaces are supposed to be free of politics, but a Trump administration appointee used a government forum Wednesday to express support for the president’s reelection.

At a conference on religious freedom hosted by the State Department, an official told the crowd of several hundred people that “hopefully he will be reelected,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It’s illegal for federal employees to engage in political activities while they are on the job.

“It’s a violation of the Hatch Act for a federal official, to say in her official capacity, to hope that the president will be reelected,” said Kathleen Clark, an expert on legal ethics at the Washington University in St. Louis.
