Trump campaign plans to ‘weaponize’ the Mueller report to discredit his Democratic rivals

Published

on

On Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller submitted the results of his departments Russia probe.

The special counsel found that although there was no evidence that Trump had colluded with Russia, the report does not exonerate him on charges that he obstructed justice during the course of the probe.

Nevertheless, Trump claimed that he’d been fully exonerated of wrongdoing, a characterization that will likely play a big part in his reelection campaign.

Writing in the Washington Examiner, David M. Drucker details how the President is likely to weaponize the results of the probe.

“President Trump will make Robert Mueller’s conclusions an integral part of his 2020 re-election strategy,” Drucker writes.

“The Trump campaign is incorporating the Mueller probe into its topline messaging, spying opportunities to boost the president with critical voters and discredit the field of Democratic White House hopefuls. Many had aggressively promoted the theory that he colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016, right up until the moment the special counsel inquiry revealed otherwise,” he continues.

Drucker cites Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, who told the Examiner, “Rest assured that you will be hearing about the Democrats’ collusion, obstruction, and lies and President Trump’s full vindication between now and Election Day.”

“She’s extremely serious,” said one of those people, who has recently spoken to Sanders about a possible campaign.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:
