Breitbart reporter calls BS on Trump’s bogus ‘War on Christmas’ attack on Obama

Published

on

Three years ago, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump attacked former President Barack Obama for supposedly waging a war against Christmas after he released a statement wishing people a happy Kwanza but not a statement for Christmas.

“What a convenient mistake: Barack Obama issued a statement for Kwanzaa but failed to issue one for Christmas,” Trump wrote while linking to an article by the Gateway Pundit, a right-wing website notorious for publishing fake news.

However, Breitbart News reporter Charlie Spiering points out that even though Obama didn’t issue a formal statement on Christmas in 2015, he did post a full video on his social media pages paying tribute to the Christian holiday.

What’s more, Spiering notes that Trump himself this year put out a Christmas video without also issuing a separate statement on the holiday — and that Trump did put out an official statement wishing people a happy Kwanzaa.

“Ironically, Trump is in the same situation as Obama was when he sent this tweet,” he writes. “Both presidents sent statement recognizing Kwanzaa, and did a video message for Christmas.”

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.

Mueller probably won’t be giving new information — here’s why that can still sink Trump

Published

on

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will appear in Congress this week to testify for two hours about the report he authored on the case of Russian collusion.

The hearing is set for Wednesday, though Mueller has said that he won't have any additional information other than what is in his report. A Washington Post report used examples of past Mueller testimony to outline what can be anticipated. The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.
