Trump had no idea his administration was trying to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe

When asked by the press about his administration’s new effort to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe, Trump had no idea what they were talking about.

President Donald Trump’s administration launched a global campaign to decriminalize homosexuality. The program is being led by the U.S. ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, who is an openly gay person in the Trump administration.

The campaign will focus on countries where homosexuality is still against the law, such as parts of the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean. The launch of the campaign was met with skepticism from LGBTQ activists.

In addition to the backlash, Trump appeared unaware that his administration even announced the campaign.

While in the Oval Office with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, reporters followed up with Trump on a few of his policies.

“Mr. President, on your push to decriminalize homosexuality, are you doing that? And why?” a reporter asked.

“Say it?” Trump responded.

“Your push to decriminalize homosexuality around the world,” the reporter clarified.

“I don’t know which report you’re talking about. We have many reports. Anybody else?” Trump said.

Republicans keep dragging trolls, wackos and conspiracy theorists before hearings — are the Democrats finally fed up?

Published

on

Republicans in Congress returned to Capitol Hill following their August recess last week and immediately set out to make a mockery of their constitutional obligation — inviting discredited witnesses to provide expert testimony in a manner that only served to derail, dismiss and diminish otherwise serious subject manners.

Former Turning Point USA communications director Candace Owens was again invited by Republicans to appear before a House Joint Oversight Subcommittee on combating white supremacy. Owens, who previously argued that the 2018 mail bombings targeting Democrats actually resulted from a conspiracy plot orchestrated by liberals, claims the NRA was founded as a civil rights organization (it was actually started by Civil War veterans to improve soldiers' marksmanship), and has said, "Black Americans are doing worse off economically today than we were doing in the 1950s under Jim Crow,” to downplay the threat of white supremacy.

Pence knew about and actually participated in Trump’s apparent Ukraine extortion plot: report

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence is seemingly complicit in President Donald Trump's apparent extortion and bribery plot, based on the transcript of a press conference the VP held in Poland on September 2. At issue is a whistleblower's complaint that the White House refuses to release. It is believed it says Trump repeatedly threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine until, or in exchange for, that country digging up and handing over dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. There is no evidence any dirt was found or even exists.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Published

on

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.
