Dennis Rodman breaks down in tears live on television over Trump-Kim summit

Published

on

Basketball star and improbable North Korean envoy Dennis Rodman broke down in tears live on television Tuesday as he recounted the hostility he faced for meeting dictator Kim Jong Un.

Amid a landmark summit between President Donald Trump and the young North Korean strongman, Rodman appeared on CNN to voice hope, and vindication.

“I got death threats,” Rodman said breaking down in tears. “I couldn’t even go home … I had to hide out for 30 days.”

Saying the controversial talks between him and Kim and between Trump and Kim were the right thing to do, Rodman said: “We need the doors to be open and start fresh and make this world a better place, baby, that’s it”.

Rodman has struck up an unlikely friendship with the basketball loving North Korean leader and made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.

He flew into Singapore late Monday to be present for the historic first summit between the two leaders.

Ex-prosecutor slams Congress for not jailing subpoena violators in the Trump administration: ‘It’s incomprehensible’

House Democrats have been blocked at every turn from their lawful oversight functions as President Donald Trump's administration directs its members to ignore subpoenas for information on a variety of topics, from the Russia investigation to the census.

On Thursday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner castigated Democrats for their unwillingness to use their biggest weapon in the subpoena fight: inherent contempt.

It’s incomprehensible that Congress appears unwilling to use its lawful inherent contempt powers to force the issue of administration members ignoring properly issued subpoenas. Like a football team refusing to pass the ball, forever running up the middle, gaining zero yards. https://t.co/AaWvEsJvk2

Trump’s campaign is a perpetual outrage machine designed to inflame ‘every f-cking deplorable’ in America

Published

on

President Donald Trump's re-election campaign is gambling on an unprecedented strategy by focusing entirely on his base, while making little or no effort to attract new supporters.

The president still hasn't cracked 50 percent approval in two and a half years in the White House, and his 2020 campaign was built around a perpetual outrage machine designed to inflame his core supporters -- and drive them to the polls, reported TIME.

The campaign uses Google and Facebook algorithms to make massive digital advertising purchases any time Trump stirs up controversy, and scoops up data when supporters interact with those ads or buy online merchandise from the Trump campaign website.

Putin says use of US force against Iran would be ‘disaster’

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said any use of force by the US against Iran would lead to disaster as tensions escalate between Washington and Tehran.

"The US says it does not rule out the use of force... This would be a disaster for the region," Putin said during an annual televised phone-in with screened questions posed by Russian viewers.

"It would lead to a surge in violence and an increase in the number of refugees," he said, adding that the consequences of intervention would be "difficult to calculate".

Moscow has backed Tehran in its stand off with the United States since Washington pulled out of an international 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran last year.
