White House aides frantic return of Obama is getting ‘into Trump’s head’

Published

on

According to a report on the reemergence of former President Barack Obama into the public square after giving a scathing speech attacking Donald Trump, White House insiders are worried that Trump will now become obsessed with going after the former president.

Politico reports that insiders claim Trump “has long complained about the fawning coverage and adulation that he believes Obama has received, even after leaving the White House,” which has been exacerbated by the president’s dismay at the fawning coverage given to the late Sen. John McCain in the past two weeks.

With the adulation lavished on Obama’s speech in Illinois on Friday, where he repeatedly took shots at Trump, saying Trump’s Twitter feed is nothing more than an “electronic versions of bread and circuses,” insiders worry Obama’s return could throw Trump off his game.

“Trump also sees Obama as a much more formidable political opponent than Hillary Clinton, the one he actually beat, and Trump’s allies have privately worried that the 44th president could get in his successor’s head,” Politico reports, adding, “Asked what they had to say about Obama’s attacks on Trump — coming at the end of a head-exploding week in the middle of the darkest period of his presidency so far — multiple Trump White House aides and people close to him said they didn’t want to get into it, letting the president’s words speak for themselves.”

Democrats certainly hope so as the midterms loom, with candidates reportedly flooding Obama’s advisers with requests for personal appearances on the campaign trail.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
