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.

Reflecting on the impassioned case laid out by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the past three days, Tomasky wondered what it would take to get through to Republicans who seem uninterested in fulfilling their constitutional duties.

‘Take her out!’ Leaked audio purportedly catches Trump demanding firing of Marie Yovanovitch

Published

An audio recording that has been reviewed by ABC News purportedly catches President Donald Trump demanding the firing of former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

According to ABC News, the recording was made in April 2018, which was more than a year before Yovanovitch was finally ousted from her position. Additionally, ABC News reports that the recording was made by Igor Fruman, the now-indicted henchman of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who captured the president's voice during a private dinner where he also met with Fruman's co-conspirator, Lev Parnas.

Trump's tirade against Yovanovitch came after both Fruman and Parnas had informed the president that the ambassador was known to say nasty things about it, which prompted Trump to demand her dismissal.

Published

on

In a column for Politico, senior media editor Jack Shafer claimed that President Donald Trump appears to be winning his Senate impeachment trial battle but that he is setting himself to lose the war in the long run.

According to the columnist, the president is likely responsible for directly coming up with his impeachment defense but also notes that he hasn't looked past the trial and what awaits him if he gets his wish and Senate Republicans dismiss the charges against him.
