CNN’s political analyst Gloria Borger revealed that White House aides are refusing to accept that President Donald Trump’s violent behavior and rhetoric lead to multiple bomb threats sent to news organizations and Democrats.
Borger reported that White House aides said, “We are not a doormat.”
“Our colleague, Pamela Brown is reporting that White House officials said ‘we’re not to blame,'” she said. “He should not be blamed for crazy things that violent people want to do. A senior official told Pam that ‘we’re not a doormat.'”
She added, “The president tonight said leaders must stop threatening opponents as if they’re morally defective. [I remember] when the president said that the opponents of Kavanaugh were evil. He used that word, evil. Is that morally defective? I would think so.”
“You have the White House coming out with a statement saying, you know, it’s not us, but this is the president of the United States. His words matter. His words echo throughout not only this country but the world,” she said.

The Robert Mueller standard must be overthrown — for the sake of democracy
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report is a meticulous and compelling document recounting President Donald Trump’s actions and the informational warfare carried out during the 2016 election by the Russian government. But it contains a serious flaw — and it sents a terrible precedent for the country.
We’re now confronted with that flaw once again as the Justice Department has revealed that the case of the 2016 criminal hush money payments meant to benefit Trump’s campaign has closed. Michael Cohen has already been imprisoned for his part in the scheme, but his testimony, public evidence, and common sense all indicate that Trump, too, was just as culpable.
Rush Limbaugh admits his attacks on Obama were ‘bogus’ as he attempts to defend Trump
Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh admitted that Republican fear-mongering over the federal deficit under President Obama was “bogus,” while defending the deficit's explosive rise to $1 trillion under President Trump.
During Limbaugh’s show on Tuesday, a caller suggested that Republicans should nominate a young fiscal conservative instead of Trump, citing the rising deficit. Limbaugh dismissed the concerns, declaring that fiscal conservatism was basically a sham all along.
George Takei opens up about being held in an internment camp — and his views on Trump
At a time when comic books are regularly adapted into superhero movies, George Takei's new graphic memoir "They Called Us Enemy" involves heroes who would also work wonderfully on the silver screen. To be sure, the main characters don't wear colorful costumes or use superpowers, but they are heroes nonetheless — and what they do, in the face of evils no less than those posed by fictional villains, is pretty super too.
