‘Oh f*ck!’ Trump’s plans to fire Comey accidentally revealed after White House printer mixup

Published

on

“Kushner, Inc.,” a new book about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump has revealed more details about the chaos swirling around the White House when President Donald Trump decided to fire former FBI Director James Comey.

As Axios reports, the book claims that someone in the White House accidentally sent Trump’s letter firing Comey to the wrong printer, and it wound up in the hands of one of the aides to former economic adviser Gary Cohn.

Cohn then instructed the aide to bring the letter to White House counsel Don McGahn, who freaked out when he learned the letter had been sent to the wrong printer.

“Oh f*ck!” he exclaimed, according to the book.

“Kushner, Inc.,” which was written by journalist Vicky Ward, also claims that the president ordered former chief of staff John Kelly to fire his own daughter and son-in-law because they kept generating embarrassing headlines for his administration.

“Get rid of my kids,” Trump reportedly told Kelly. “Get them back to New York!”

Kelly, however, responded that it would be difficult for him to force Jared and Ivanka to give up their positions in the White House without Trump’s explicitly telling them he wanted them out.

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.

In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.

Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president

Published

on

A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.

According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.

During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
