On Wednesday, Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara suggested that President Donald Trump’s latest actions show that he really cares about the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
While talking to reporters on the South Lawn, Trump said that the public should have the opportunity to see the full Mueller report.
“Let it come out. Let people see it — that’s up to the attorney general,” Trump said.
“I don’t think it says anything about what Donald Trump wants and what he might instruct Bill Barr to do if he thinks it’s appropriate,” Bharara said. “We heard him time and time again say that he has no problem with something and then he does nothing. He said for months, everybody will remember, that he had no problem sitting down with Bob Mueller and answering questions. He said it was up to his lawyers.”
Trump never sat down with Mueller and blamed it on his lawyers. He also answered written questions.
Adding, “There are times when Donald Trump realizes he sounds defensive and he is afraid and running from something. He will say things like, ‘I don’t care, and tt doesn’t bother me’ when it does. I don’t think it’s any evidence of anything that might happen in the future.”

John Oliver cites Donald Trump’s final offer for Greenland: ‘$200 and I’ll throw in Don Jr.’

In his opener Sunday, the HBO host said that he wasn't all that surprised given Trump's track record.

Florida teacher removed after bizarre rant about students not standing for the pledge
Students were faced with a white-board rant in a classroom attacking anyone not standing up for the Pledge of Allegiance.
The moment went viral locally on Thursday after students posted Daniel Goodman‘s “inappropriate” message to students at First Coast High School in Duval County, Florida, The Atlanta Black Star reported.
“THINK: We had about a half million Americans die in our Civil War, which was largely to get rid of slavery. There are no longer separate water fountains and bathrooms in Jacksonville for ‘white’ and ‘colored,’ as Mr. Goodman remembers from the 1960?s. We had an amendment to the U.S. Constitution allowing women the right to vote. We have had a Black president. The superintendent of Duval Schools is a Black woman. Mr. Fluent, our principal, replaced a Black man. Mr. Simmons, who now is a DC PS admninistrator.”
Angry Minnesota farmer bashes ‘insulting’ Trump comments that ‘we’re great patriots’ during his trade war
President Donald Trump has insulted at least one Minnesota farmer by his claim that farmers are "great patriots" who want him to continue his trade fight against China.
"This wound is self-inflicted, by our president," said Gary Wertish, who is the Minnesota Farm Bureau president. "We definitely agreed with it in the beginning. But it doesn’t appear that there’s a plan B. Some of the callous comments come, especially from the president, you know, that farmers are 'winning,' we’re 'great patriots,' that’s very insulting. That’s coming from someone who never has faced the challenges of a family farmer. I go into the bank and tell the lender I can’t make the payment because we lost our market? The banker is going to tell me you don’t have to make your payment because you’re a patriot."
