Melania Trump’s decision to wear a green army-style jacket with the saying “I really don’t care” painted across it as she went to visit some of the 2,000 children her husband ordered to be taken from their parents and locked in cages has led to a lot of speculation.
What does she not care about and who is she asking whether they care? Her husband has said it was a message aimed at the media, while her spokesperson said there was no message. People were generally too bewildered by the taunt to get angry.
David Jolly, a Republican former congressman from Florida, was irate about the jacket.
He said it’s time for the media and others to stop treating Melania Trump with kid gloves.
“This was an unforgivable moment for the first lady and the first family,” he said. “Not just because of what happened in the initial moment where, ‘Wow, did she wear this?’ There was intrigue. And, frankly, I was one who dismissed it the first time we saw it, as she was departing.”
Then Melania Trump wore it upon her return—despite sweltering heat.
“To wear it on her affirm that this was a political message, This was not a fashion statement. This was a political message where she said ‘I don’t care.'” he said. “She was going to the border, where her husband had ripped families apart and wearing a jacket that said ‘I don’t care.’ …she does not deserve latitude on this because she doubled-down after questions were asked.”
Harry Reid warns of Trump’s mental state on CNN: ‘There’s something wrong with that man — he’s getting worse’
Former Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) on Friday warned that President Donald Trump's mental state appears to be "getting worse" amid his claims that former Vice President Joe Biden will somehow "hurt God."
In an interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar, Reid was asked what to make of Trump's claims that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was "against God," despite being a lifelong Catholic.
"I think it's just so absolutely crazy," he said. "There's something wrong with that man. We keep -- I keep hoping that it will become more attuned with reality, but he's getting worse. Joe Biden's against God? That's kind of a stretch, I would think."
Trump earns a new title: Terrorist-in-Chief
OK, we’ve managed to find ourselves in another governmental tempest in a substantial teacup. Donald Trump is working overtime to undercut the U.S. Postal Service just as he is railing on mail ballots.
It’s a pairing that just makes no sense.
Or, more politely, if there is something wrong with the post office that will keep it from working most efficiently in an election that will depend on mailed ballots, make it better, not worse.
Larry Kudlow whines after CNN’s Harlow fact-checks him in real time: ‘I resent your little nitpicking’
President Donald Trump's National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow struggled to justify why the jobs numbers are "good" after seeing the unemployment rate at 10.2 percent, down from 11.1 percent. At the same time, another 1.2 million people filed for unemployment for the first time this week, taking the numbers to 21 million Americans still unemployed.
Trump celebrated the numbers because jobs added were slightly greater than expected, but the numbers are a far cry from where they were in May and June, which set records with jobs coming back amid states reopening. This month just 1.8. million jobs were added in July, where in June there were 4.8 million. It was a number that prompted CNN's Poppy Harlow to ask Kudlow if he is concerned about a slow-down.
