Protesters outside of President Donald Trump’s Virginia golf course got creative Sunday as the president headed for a long weekend of golf.

“About a dozen protestors set up a series of signs along the sidewalk outside the club including ‘Resign’ and ‘Liar.’ The Trump baby balloons were also out,” pool reports said. “They shouted ‘resign’ as the motorcade passed.”

“The blue and white sign in the second photo says ‘Putin’s Apprentice’ with the hammer and sickle symbol of the former Soviet Union replacing the ‘u’ in Putin,” the following pool report said.

Protesters were outside the golf course on Saturday during John McCain’s funeral.

In a new joint ad from the Lincoln Project and VoteVets "Hero of the Hudson" Captain Sully Sullenberger, a lifelong Republican, tore into President Donald Trump's failure of leadership.

"It's about knowing what you're doing, and taking responsibility for it. Being prepared, ready, and able to handle anything that might come your way."

"From my service as an Air Force officer and a fighter pilot, I knew that serving a cause greater than oneself is the highest calling.

Now, it's up to us to overcome his attacks on our very democracy, knowing nearly a quarter million Americans won't have a voice — casualties of his lethal lies and incompetence."

Fascinating new study shows how Fox News’ use of the word ‘hate’ could be warping viewers’ perspectives

Published

Fox News is up to five times more likely to use the word “hate” in its programming than its main competitors, according to our new study of how cable news channels use language.

Fox particularly uses the term when explaining opposition to Donald Trump. His opponents are said to “hate” Trump, his values and his followers.

During a CNN panel discussion on tonight's debate between Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden, a former adviser to the president suggested Biden's son, Hunter, should be fair game for attacks which led fellow panelist Ana Navarro to give him a lesson in the first daughter's corruption and the president's possible legal problems.

With "New Day" hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota looking on, David Urban said he expected Hunter Biden would be used against his father during the debate.

"If the president brings up Hunter Biden as we have heard some suggest he will repeatedly, how do you think Joe Biden should respond?" Urban challenged Navarro.
