President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that he loved the conflicts in the White House after staffer Kellyanne Conway was found to have violated the Hatch Act by using federal resources to support Republican candidates.
At a press conference with Sweden Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Trump called on a reporter from the Daily Caller, who asked whether the president expected other people to leave the White House.
Trump, however, refused to say whether he expected other staffers to quit or be fired.
“The White House has tremendous energy, tremendous spirit, it is a great place to be working,” he insisted. “Many, many people want every single job. [People say], oh gee, maybe people don’t want to work for Trump. Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. They all want a piece of that Oval Office. They all want a piece of the West Wing.”
“I like conflict,” the president added. “And I certainly have that and then I make a decision. But I like watching it, I like seeing it.”

The religious right poured millions into this group’s war on same-sex marriage. Now even its website doesn’t exist.
In the years before the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the same rights and responsibilities to marriage that different-sex couples do, the National Organization For Marriage, known to many simply as “NOM,” was a recognized leader in the fight against equality.
The religious right poured millions of dollars into the tiny organization, despite its ludicrous efforts to battle equality. Some said it was the Catholic Church. Others said it was the Mormon Church. At one point, investigations into NOM’s taxes revealed the vast majority of its funding came from a tiny handful of anonymous donors sinking a few million into the group’s coffers.
Facebook finally yanks Trump ad after his campaign gets caught blatantly violating rules
Thanks to some nudging by the newsletter Popular Info, Facebook has taken down yet another Trump campaign ad for violating the social network's advertising policies.
A screenshot of the ad shows a crowd of women with the caption, "The Women for Trump Coalition needs the support of strong women like you!" and violates a Facebook policy that states ads "must not contain content that asserts or implies personal attributes."
NYC public advocate confronts defender of Eric Garner’s killer: ‘Stop pretending black folks aren’t human’
Former New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and former FBI special agent James Gagliano debated the firing of Daniel Pantaleo, an NYPD officer who caused the death of Eric Garner.
Gagliano called the firing a "glaring miscarriage of justice."
"I look at it from the perspective of the law," Gagliano opined. "It's easy to watch the video and feel passion for the [Garner] family. We've had his wife on here, we've had his mother on here, we've had his children on here."
Gagliano insisted that he is not an "unabashed police shill." He said that basing the firing on the video of Garner's death is "unfair to the officer."
