White House staff dreads vacations Trump spends ‘fuming and stewing between golf games’ — here’s why

Published

When Donald Trump has downtime, his aides get nervous, according to Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire.

Appearing on Nicolle Wallace’s MSNBC show on Thursday afternoon, Lemire said that he’s spent the last five days tagging along on Trump’s golf retreat in New Jersey where Trump has “not had a lot of structured time.”

“Every time he goes to Mar-A-Lago, every time he goes to Bedminster, aides get nervous,” Lemire said. “He’s not as well staffed. He has access to friends and club members who just kinda come and go and makes suggestions. He often gets revved up.”

There’s a history of Trump acting rashly while on vacation, Lemire said.

“It was Bedminster that he made the decision to fire James Comey. It was Bedminster last year when we heard about fire and fury when he bashed Mitch McConnell.”

Lemire said that Republicans are afraid Trump may decide to interfere in the Mueller probe or “at the very least, another distraction tactic and there will be some other Uranium 1 style messaging muddle that will come up in the next couple weeks.”

Wallace herself worried that Trump may be “about to blow” as he spends his days “fuming and stewing between golf games.”

"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.

"Absolutely," Harris replied.

"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.

"Does it matter?" Harris replied.

"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."

Democrats blast Trump and demand his impeachment at CNN debate

Published

on

Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.

From the opening moments, most of the dozen candidates on stage launched fierce broadsides against Trump over the Ukrainian scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.

"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.

"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.

Here are 3 winners and 4 losers from the CNN/NYT Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Twelve Democrats took to the stage Tuesday night for yet another debate in the party's 2020 president primary hosted by CNN and the New York Times.

After only ten candidates qualified for the previous debate, an additional two — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and wealthy donor and former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — made it to the stage this round for an even more crowded event.

The candidates discussed a range of important policy issues, but since the format was a debate, and they're all competing for the same nomination, it is ultimately most critical who won and who lost the night. Here are three winners and four losers — necessarily a subjective assessment, of course — from the debate:
