President Trump wants to meet with Covington Catholic boys at the White House: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump will meet with the Covington Catholic High School boys at the center of a national controversy over their confrontation with a Native American man on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

The news was posted by Fox News host Laura Ingraham, who described the students as having been “threatened by the leftist internet mob” and said the meeting could happen as soon as Wednesday.

The boys, who wore MAGA hats during the confrontation with the Native American man who was singing and playing a drum, have been defended by conservatives after they were attacked following the first videos of the confrontation. The boys were later apologized to by the New York Times Kara Swisher and many others.

The changing narrative followed CNN host Jake Tapper publishing a letter written by a PR agency that was hired by the mother of the boy at the center of the original video, Nick Sandmann.

Update: A CBS News producer disputes the report with an anonymous source.

“They are not coming tomorrow, they are not coming this week, that does not mean they are not going to come at all? I don’t know,” he quotes the anonymous source as saying.

Update 2: Ingraham is now backing away from her reporting, saying that “White House now seems to be in flux” and that the meeting would happen “after shutdown.”

Update 3: A senior White House official said that there are currently no plans to have Covington students to the White House.

Update 4: The White House confirmed they reached out to the students.

‘Comparing yourself to terrorists?’ Internet cracks up at Trump saying dead 9-11 hijackers got more justice than him

Published

on

President Donald Trump quoted Fox News host Mark Levin that left many scratching their heads. Levin, who has a show on Sunday evenings, claimed that the terrorists from Sept. 11 got more due process than the president.

The claim was a curious one because, as many on Twitter noted, it's not often that the president of the United States compares himself to a terrorist. Secondly, the 9-11 hijackers all died in the attack, as they were on the planes that crashed into the buildings and into a Pennsylvania field.

Trump is known to quote Levin frequently, though the citations often make the president look worse.

MLK was ‘gravely disappointed’ with white moderates — whom he believed were responsible for impeding civil rights

"We also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power."

—Martin Luther King Jr., 1967

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day comes as moderate Democrats, falling in line behind former vice president Joe Biden, are warning that the party risks re-electing Donald Trump if it nominates too radical a candidate for president — by which they mean someone like Senators Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe catches Alan Dershowitz in humiliating hypocrisy: ‘He’s not to be trusted’

Published

on

Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe called out President Donald Trump's lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, Sunday on Twitter, noting that his opinions seem to evolve depending on who he's defending.

Dershowitz is on a kind of press junket for the president, defending him in various media appearances. The former lawyer to Jeffrey Epstein is handling Trump's defense as it pertains to the abuse of power. Dershowitz thinks that charge has no basis in law. In fact, impeachment trials aren't actually legal proceedings, they're political proceedings, because the Justice Department claimed that Trump can't be indicted under the law while he's president.
