Trump mocked Sarah Sanders for having ‘a nervous breakdown’ as he insulted McCain after his death: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has handled every aspect of the passing of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) terribly.

From canning a proposed laudatory statement by his aides to raising the White House flag to full-staff inappropriately early, his every action speaks to the years of bad blood he engendered between himself and McCain and his refusal to see past it.

On Thursday, Trump doubled down on his behavior, insisting that he had done nothing wrong. And according to Bloomberg, when the topic turned to McCain’s failed 2008 presidential run against Barack Obama, he proceeded to throw more shade in such a stunning spectacle that even the White House press secretary stared at him in astonishment:

Asked if McCain would have been a better president, Trump declined to say, even as his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, stared at him.

“I don’t want to comment on it,” he said. “I have a very strong opinion, all right.”

Sanders, he joked, was “having a nervous breakdown” over his response. “Maybe I’ll give you that answer some day later.”

Trump evidently feels so much spite that he will not even give a straight answer on whether he believes McCain, a member of his own party, would have made a better president than Obama, a man who Trump famously embarked on a racist crusade to disprove the U.S. citizenship of.

It is little wonder that Sanders apparently could not contain her shock.

Bombshell report confirms Trump ‘repeatedly pressed’ Ukrainian leader to probe Joe Biden’s family

Published

on

A new report from the Wall Street Journal confirms that President Donald Trump over the summer "repeatedly pressed" Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.

According to WSJ, Trump asked Zelensky an estimated eight different times to launch a probe of Hunter Biden in a move aimed at crippling Joe Biden's presidential campaign.

"He told him that he should work with [Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know," one of WSJ's sources claims. According to this source, however, Trump on this phone call made no mention of foreign aid and didn't offer Zelensky an explicit quid-pro-quo for his cooperation in investigating Biden.
