President Donald Trump’s highly anticipated meeting with Queen Elizabeth II was spoiled on Friday as news broke that 12 Russian officials had been indicted for allegedly hacking into the Democratic National Committee.
During MSNBC coverage of the president’s visit with the queen, Andrea Mitchell cut into footage of a ceremony at Windsor Castle featuring Trump and the queen to announce breaking news out of special counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
“We are now hearing that 12 Russians have been indicted by the Justice Department,” Mitchell announced as Trump was walking with the queen. “Russian intelligence officers charged with hacking. Now, we know how difficult it would be to ever pursue them in terms of getting them here and prosecuting them, but this adds to the 13 Russians who were not directly involved with the government, per se. But these are Russian intelligence operatives who are charged with hacking the Democratic National Committee in the run-up to the 2016 election.”
Shortly before announcing the indictments of the Russians, Mitchell noted that the procession at Windsor Castle was “the kind of pageantry we know President Trump loves.”

Faced with a continuing firestorm over last Sunday's racist Twitter attack on four Democratic lawmakers -- who all happen to be women of color -- President Donald Trump was again returned to Twitter to attack the women instead of letting the issue die.
Moments after he used Twitter to attack the Washington Post for reporting on the turmoil he created -- which has been unversally condemned by Democrats and conservatives alike -- the president thought it was a good time to add fuel to the fire.

Responding to the Post's report that Kellyanne Conway was forced to tell the president that he had set off a firestorm last Sunday with his tweets attacking four Democratic lawmakers, the president pushed back using his old stand-by: "Fake News."
Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera turns his back on Trump after racist furor: His ‘critics were much more right than I’
Deep in a report on the fissures Donald Trump created between himself and some of his defenders, after he launched a racist attack on four Democratic lawmakers that led to an equally racist chant at a North Carolina presidential rally, Fox News contributor Gerald Rivera admitted that he now finds it near impossible to defend the president.
In an interview with the New York Times that came after Rivera blew up on a fellow Fox News host over the "send her back" chant aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) the longtime Fox personality said he has all but given up on Trump.
