‘Exactly what the president needs’: Republican strategist pushes Kellyanne Conway for chief of staff

Published

on

President Donald Trump, who once worked as a reality TV star character hyped for his ability to hire and fire, is having a difficult time finding a third White House chief of staff.

“Let’s talk about Trump’s chief of staff woes,” MSNBC anchor Katy Tur suggested. “He announces John Kelly is leaving, everyone looks to Nick Ayers and oh, no Nick Ayers doesn’t want to stay.”

“That would be embarrassing for any presidency,” Tur added.

She noted a number of contenders, including Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Yankees baseball team president Randy Levine, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, former Trump campaign strategist David Bossie and Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Newsmax, the online publication owned by Mar-a-lago member and Trump friend Christopher Ruddy has suggested Jared Kushner as White House chief of staff.

However, one of Tur’s guests had another name to add to the list. Republican strategist Susan Del Perico suggested counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway.

“Someone else who hasn’t been mentioned — and only in the Trump universe would this potentially work — is Kellyanne Conway,” Pel Perico argued.

“Kellyanne was campaign manager, she knows how to handle Trump,” she continued. “She’s been in the White House for two years, so she’s seen the operations.”

“I know people are going to go berzerk on Twitter, but she’s a very smart woman,” Del Perico added.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
