MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace airs epic and brutal fact check of Donald Trump

Published

on

MSNBC’s Deadline: White House broadcast an in-depth fact check on President Donald Trump’s latest attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller.

“There is a lot of debate in the media whether you cover the president’s tweets,” anchor Nicolle Wallace acknowledged. “We pay attention to them, because for the most part, they look like they come interest straight from the true Trump.”

Wallace then examined a single tweet from the commander-in-chief.

“Let’s fact check that, no it’s not,” Wallace noted, examining the first the three highlighted sections of his argument.

“Fact check, not really, sir,” was the conclusion of the MSNBC anchor and former GOP White House communications director.

“Wrong again,” was her conclusion and the last section of the tweet. “Here may be where you are the most wrong, Mr. President.”

Though her fact check may not reach those most in need of hearing it, one panelist suggested.

“The president may want to live in an alternate reality and so too do people who support him. They are not watching your fact check on the show right now,” MSNBC political analyst Eli Stokols noted. “And I think what we are heading to in terms of this possible constitutional crisis that we may arrive at, we will find out whether or not we live in a true constitutional democracy with checks and balances, or if we’re going to live in Donald Trump’s alternative reality, because I don’t know that we can live in both.”

“Look, this is a president to whom truth is inconsequential and corruption is commonplace,” explained former Congressman David Jolly (R-FL). “It should be on the shoulders of the Paul Ryans and the Mitch McConnells and Republican Leaders on Capitol Hill and throughout the party to stand up to that, but they are staying silent and they are staying silent because Donald Trump has fully high-jacked this party.”

“This is Donald Trump’s party,” the former Republican congressman concluded. “He owns it and he controls it.”

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Published

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
