Panicky Trump calling friends to gauge how Stormy Daniels’ 60 Minutes bombshells will hurt his poll numbers: report

Published

on

According to a report in the Washington Post, Donald Trump is worried about what will come out about him in a 60 Minutes interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels on Sunday night, with the ratings and poll-obsessed president fearing his already shaky poll numbers could collapse even further.

With the lawyer for the porn star touting possible photos or video on a DVD that he has promoted on Twitter — the president has reportedly been complaining all week about the media coverage the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been receiving.

Trump has particularly taken notice of Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, who has been a continuous presence on cable news talk shows.

According to the report, Trump has been on the phones with friends and outside advisers attempting to gauge how much damage he’ll take on should the woman, who claims she had an affair with him, reveal details or photos that could possibly shake his administration more than an FBI investigation into his presidential campaign.

Sources note that Trump is particularly worried about his poll numbers plummeting even further if his base abandons him.

Trump is returning to the White House on Sunday prior to the highly anticipated CBS interview — with his wife, Melania, remaining at their Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for spring break with their youngest son, Barron.

‘Come heavily armed’: Oregon GOP lawmaker threatens state troopers over dispute with Dem governor

Published

on

On Wednesday, The Oregonian reported that GOP state Sen. Brian Boquist threatened to kill state troopers if they try to keep him in the Senate chamber to debate climate change legislation.

"I'm quotable, so here's the quote. This is what I told the [police] superintendent," said Boquist to reporters outside the Senate chamber. "Send bachelors and come heavily armed. I'm not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It's just that simple."

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has made passing a climate change bill one of her top priorities. While Democrats control Oregon's legislature, Senate Republicans have enough votes to block legislation by walking out and denying a quorum — which they have done to stonewall this legislation.

Nightmare scenario: Trump could lose by 5 million votes — but still win re-election by one electoral vote

Published

on

President Donald Trump could potentially win re-election next year by a single electoral vote.

In that nightmare scenario for Democrats, the president could lose the popular vote -- again -- but still narrowly eke out an electoral win by holding onto four states he carried in 2016, reported Axios.

Even if Democrats flip Michigan and Pennsylvania, increase their vote totals in California and come close to winning Texas -- which could give them 5 million more votes than Trump -- their candidate could still lose if Trump narrowly wins Arizona, Florida, North Carolina and Wisconsin.
