‘A ludicrous stunt’: Bill Kristol rips Trumps for a hoax press briefing

Published

on

On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced a surprise press briefing, that turned out to be a hoax.

During the briefing, Trump made a surprise appearance and ranted about the border wall and border security, inviting a few border control agents to agree with him and then leaving without answering any questions.

After the fake briefing ended, CNN host Brianna Keilar’s panel ripped Trump for being selfish in the midst of a historic day. The 116th Congress was sworn in and praised for being the most diverse Congress yet.

Conservative pundit Bill Kristol said that Trump could not stand not being the center of attention for a day.

“To be clear, this is a stunt. This isn’t a briefing,” Keilar said.

“Donald Trump couldn’t stand that Nancy Pelosi was the center of attention today,” Kristol said. “He can’t stand the fact any other human could get his spotlight, so he had to butt in at 4:30 in the afternoon.”

He added, “It’s pretty disgraceful, [he had to do] a ludicrous stunt with some union officials who endorsed him.”

Internet pummels Trump for frantic demand to investigate Obama instead: ‘This is not the tweet of an innocent man’

Published

President Donald Trump jealously raged against Barack Obama's post-presidency business deals, which includes a production agreement with Netflix -- and other social media users ridiculed his apparent envy.

Trump questioned that deal and others in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee, and he suggested Congress look at Obama's business since he left the White House.

....work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!

Is the Trump administration squelching a whistleblower — and a major scandal?

Published

on

America's system of government has always worked on the honor system. With so few Senate-confirmed Cabinet and federal agency heads, and so many “acting” officials working in the Trump administration, people who are constantly forced to audition for permanent positions are now under tremendous pressure to protect a president hellbent on breaking every norm of good governance. Now a new possible political scandal could be brewing in the Trump administration that tests the loyalty of these “acting” officials — pitting their allegiance to the nation against their desire to impress their boss.

Jealous Trump rages against Obama’s Netflix deal in early morning Twitter rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump betrayed his apparent jealously over Barack Obama's production deal with Netflix in a new Twitter rant.

The former president and first lady Michele Obama made their Hollywood debut last month with the documentary "American Factory" released through joint venture with Netflix and their production company, Higher Ground.

Trump questioned that deal in a pair of tweets complaining about an impeachment inquiry launched against him last week by the House Judiciary Committee.

"House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent - ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION," Trump tweeted. "So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that “Trump” has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way."
