‘It’s all your fault!’ Trump screamed at Giuliani — and blamed him for putting Don Jr. in legal jeopardy

Published

on

A new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman claims that President Donald Trump is now blaming attorney Rudy Giuliani for supposedly putting his own son in legal jeopardy.

According to Sherman’s sources, Trump blames Giuliani for not taking up the job of attorney general, which eventually went to Jeff Sessions. Because Giuliani wouldn’t have recused himself as Sessions did, the president’s logic goes, Giuliani could have kept the president safe had he agreed to become AG.

A person described by Sherman as “close to the Trump family” claims that the president is particularly furious with Giuliani because it appears that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe appears to be turning its attention to Donald Trump Jr., who set up the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian government officials to get dirt on then-rival Hillary Clinton.

“A lot of what Trump is doing is based on the fact [that] Mueller is going after Don Jr.,” the source said. “They’re squeezing Don Jr. right now.”

Trump Jr.’s attorney declined to comment to Sherman about whether Mueller is “squeezing” his client.

Adding to the tension in the White House, according to Sherman’s sources, is the fact that Trump is worried that White House counsel Don McGahn might be secretly ratting him out.

“Over the weekend, Jared Kushner described Trump’s mood as ‘rip-shit,’ according to one of the advisers,” Sherman writes. “‘Total meltdown’ was how another adviser put it. ‘He’s extremely frustrated,’ a Republican close to the White House said.”

Nate Silver claps back at right-wing pollster for accusing him of fraud

Published

on

One of the worst-performing national pollsters in the 2018 election cycle was Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning outfit that is consistently the only one to show President Donald Trump with a net positive approval rating. In 2018, Rasmussen showed Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot by 1 point — but Democrats won the popular vote by 8.4 points.

Nonetheless, Rasmussen is proud of its methodology and particularly irritated when polling analyst and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver points out their inaccuracy. Over the past two weeks, they have twice accused him of "fraud" and characterized his analyses as "corrupt."

Trump told Republicans he didn’t care ‘about terrorists 7,000 miles away’

Published

President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.

Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.

The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.

The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.

Volker reportedly testified that Bill Taylor was reluctant to take the position of acting ambassador to Ukraine after the firing of Marie Yovanovitch.

"He was just worried [Ukraine] was going to get undermined at some point,” Volker reportedly testified. “Hanging over everyone’s head in the expert community is, is there some grand bargain with Russia where we throw Ukraine under the bus?”
