‘The Forrest Gump of collusion’: Samantha Bee mocks Don Jr. for being the one who might bring down Trump’s presidency

Published

on

During Wednesday’s “Full Frontal,” host Samantha Bee couldn’t help but knock President Donald Trump’s eldest son Don Jr.

“Trump seems pretty comfortable letting [Paul] Manafort twist in the wind,” Bee observed as the Virginia trial moves forward. “But would he do the same thing to his own flesh and blood? It kinda seems like it.”

Bee cited the tweet from last weekend from the president where he acknowledges that his “wonderful” son did meet with Russian operatives at Trump Tower under the pretense of obtaining dirt on Hillary Clinton.

“It must have been a shocking moment for Don Jr. when his father threw him under the bus,” Bee continued. “He probably thought, ‘Oh my god, Dad knows I exist! We shouldn’t be surprised to see Trump’s least favorite non-Tiffany child at the center of this scandal because he’s at the center of pretty much every Trump scandal. If Donald Trump is the Death Star, Don Jr. is the exhaust port.”

Bee went on to explain how Trump Jr. has “further befouled his dad’s already soiled name,” from his “shady business empire” to his the increasing conflicts of interest. “Of course, of all the Trump scandals that Donny has bungled into, none is more important/stupid than his interactions with Russia.”

Bee also brought up the meeting between Trump Jr. and alleged Russian agent Maria Butina during the NRA dinner prior to the 2016 election.

“Any time there was collusion going on, Donny was there. He shows up everywhere. He’s like the Forrest Gump of collusion,” she said.

“This sad, sticky wad of congealed hair gel has spent his whole life seeking his dad’s approval and failing at it,” Bee psychoanalyzed. “And now he might be the one to bring down Trump’s presidency. So keep up the good work, buddy, we’re all rooting for you.”

Veteran ex-Trump supporter: ‘Real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment’

Published

on

In an op-ed published in The Times of Israel this Wednesday, an Army veteran who has since renounced his support of President Trump accused the President of being "unpatriotic."

According to David Weisman, "real veterans who remember their oath will support impeachment."

"When I first got into politics, as I have mentioned numerous times, I thought the Republican Party was the party of upholding the Constitution and ethical principles," Wesiman writes. "I took the word of pundits thinking Republicans stood for truth, justice, and the American way. I never questioned their integrity when they condemned President Obama. Why? Because they were religious and it didn’t occur to me they would lie. Years later, if you are aware of my story, I learned that most of the demonizing of President Obama was propaganda. I’ve also learned to read the fine print of the Constitution because there’s more involved than just the right of free speech and the right to bear arms. Lots of nuance to acknowledge."

WATCH: Trump whines to Turkish president he only takes questions from ‘friendly reporters’

Published

on

In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.

"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdo?an after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."

Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.

The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.

Fox legal analyst: Today was a good day for anyone who wants to shorten the Trump presidency

Published

on

As the first public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump wrapped up this Wednesday, former assistant US attorney and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said that he originally expected Republicans' "best pitch" to be that the Democrats' impeachment inquiry hasn't demonstrated anything impeachable.

"Instead what they've tried to do is go at this by saying, 'Nothing bad happened, it was perfect,'" McCarthy said, adding that the latter tactic will open them up to an "itemization of a number of irregularities that happened and a lot of very admirable and articulate government witnesses getting on the witness stand to say, 'This shouldn't have happened, that shouldn't have happened, this is a departure from American interests, a departure from American norms.'"
