Sarah Sanders ‘tired’ of defending Trump as Stephen Miller’s gloating over child jails infuriates West Wing staff

Published

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fields questions about the administration's position on slavery.

Trump’s West Wing is in chaos amidst the fiery blowback over the administration’s child internment camps, according to a new report from Vanity Fair.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is dodging her responsibility to do press briefings because of the policy, which she does not support.

“She’s tired of taking on water for something she doesn’t believe in,” a source told Vanity Fair.

On the other side, adviser Stephen Miller is taking sadistic joy in seeing photos of crying children and triggering outrage among liberals and traditional conservatives.

“Stephen actually enjoys seeing those pictures at the border,” a Trump adviser told Vanity Fair. “He’s a twisted guy, the way he was raised and picked on. There’s always been a way he’s gone about this. He’s Waffen-SS.”

There is no graceful exit for Trump and he’s growing angry as Democrats refuse to bend to his will, sources said. He continues to think he can blame them and avoid the blowback.

“He doesn’t like this policy, and he knows it’s not helping him,” said a source who Vanity Fair has spoken to on the subject. “But he can’t get within him that this is a problem, and he needs to take ownership of it.”

When Tunisian dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled the country in January 2011, rumours and uncertainty created "panic and hysteria", said ex-activist and entrepreneur Houeida Anouar.

"January 14 was a horrible night, so traumatic," she said. "We heard gunfire, and a neighbour shouted 'hide yourselves, they're raping women'."

As pro-regime media pumped out misinformation, the flood of bogus news also spread to the internet, a space activists had long seen as a refuge from censorship and propaganda.

Dr. Fauci warns of post-Thanksgiving COVID-19 surge in US

Published

on

The United States is the worst-affected country, with 266,074 Covid-19 deaths, and President Donald Trump's administration has issued conflicting messages on mask-wearing, travel and the danger posed by the virus.

"There almost certainly is going to be an uptick because of what has happened with the travel," Fauci told CNN's "State of the Union."

Travel surrounding Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday made this the busiest week in US airports since the pandemic began.

"We may see a surge upon a surge" in two or three weeks, Fauci added. "We don't want to frighten people, but that's the reality."

Sidney Powell’s new election lawsuit cites election experts she won’t even name: legal expert

Published

on

President Donald Trump's former election lawyer, Sidney Powell, has filed her lawsuit in Georgia suing Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) for what she says is a fraudulent election.

But lawyer Mike Dunford explained that it doesn't exactly work that way. Reading through Powell's court document "Emergency Motion for Declaratory, Emergency, and Permanent Injunctive Relief and Memorandum in Support Thereof."

"If you want emergency relief it is very helpful to be as clear and concise as humanly possible," he explained. "Pointing the court back to your 100+ page complaint with its 29 exhibits isn't how that is best done. To put it very mildly."
