‘Trump is sitting in a lawn chair fanning himself’: Watch MSNBC panel trash the president over leaked schedule

Published

on

On Monday, MSNBC’s host Nicolle Wallace compared President Donald Trump to a seven-year-old child after another schedule was leaked showing that the president spent the majority of his day in “unstructured executive time.”

“Donald Trump still managed to spend between three to eight hours a day in unstructured executive time,” she said. “Which we know now involves tweeting away in front of the television.”

“It doesn’t mean you’re working because you’re awake and watching Fox,” Wallace said.

Alexi McCammond, a reporter for Axios then explained that Trump even tweets during the times he is apparently working.

“[I was] tracking the tweets during times he’s supposedly meeting with his chief of staff or during intelligence briefings or policy times because it’s not infrequent,” she said.

“He’s retweeting Charlie Kirk while supposedly in a staff meeting, and tweeting about illegal immigration when he’s supposedly meeting with his chief of staff. During lunch, with Mike Pence he is tweeting about fake news. During policy time he is tweeting about other things,” McCammond said.

“If he were seven, it would be called screen time. As a mother of a seven-year-old, screen time is more structured than his executive time. He’s never doing what he says he’s doing,” Wallace said.

Former DNC senior advisor Doug Thornell said that if most Americans had a work ethic like Trump they would be fired.

“If most American workers kept a work schedule like this, they would be fired,” he said. “He thinks he has a no-show job where he can just show up and do the bare minimum such as, sit around in a lawn chair and fan himself like a ‘Soprano’ character while everybody else around him is working.”

Netanyahu cancels UN visit over post-poll ‘political context’

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has cancelled his planned visit to the United Nations General Assembly due to the "political context" in Israel, sources in his office told AFP Wednesday.

Initial results from Tuesday's general election show Netanyahu's Likud party tied with the Blue and White alliance of his main challenger, former army chief Benny Gantz.

According to Israeli media, with more than 90 percent of ballots counted, Netanyahu's right-wing Likud had 31 seats, while Gantz's Blue and White took 32 places in Israel's 120-member parliament.

If the results hold, it will be a major setback for Netanyahu, who hoped to form a right-wing coalition similar to his current administration as he faces possible corruption charges in the weeks ahead.

Whoopi Goldberg drops the hammer on Trump impeachment: ‘We’re a lawless country right now — open your eyes’

Published

on

"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg urged viewers to open their eyes to President Donald Trump's lawlessness -- and demand accountability.

The show's panelists discussed former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, which co-host Abby Huntsman denounced as a "total embarrassment for democracy," and Goldberg said it was even worse than that.

"Even if you start to impeach him, he's there for the next two years," said Goldberg, who was wearing a wig from her upcoming role in Stephen King's "The Stand." "It's going to take that long. Look how long it took to impeach (Bill) Clinton."

Its importance in shaping Lennon's personality was laid bare in the classic 1967 psychedelic hit.

Around 60,000 fans flock each year to the site to have their photographs taken outside the famous red gates, but until now have never been allowed beyond.
