Don Jr burned to the ground for boasting about Mueller report that shows he was too clueless to commit crimes

Published

on

The oldest son of President Donald Trump spent the morning celebrating Attorney General Bob Barr’s determination that he couldn’t find any prosecutable crimes in the Trump White House with a series of tweets, including a celebratory: “TOLD YA!!!”

What Don Trump Jr. failed to mention is that he didn’t come off looking like the sharpest Trump in the family, with the special counsel noting Trump Jr. seemed to be over his head when it came to dealing with the Russians, or anything else election-related for that matter.

According to an unredacted portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report aimed at Trump Jr. among others: “The Office determined that the government would not be likely to obtain and sustain a conviction for two other reasons: first, the Office did not obtain admissible evidence likely to meet the government’s burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these individuals acted ‘willfully,’ i.e., with general knowledge of the illegality of their conduct; and, second, the government would likely encounter difficulty in proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the value of the promised information exceeded the threshold for a criminal violation.”

Needless to say, Don Jr’s Twitter celebration brought out the Twitter critics who rained on his parade — as you can see below:

A video circulated on social media on Monday showed a woman in Central Park falsely claiming that an "African-American man" threatened her life.

After the man asked the woman to put her dog on a leash, he took out his phone to film her.

"Please stop," the woman says. "Sir, I'm asking you to stop recording me."

Trump’s televised ‘petulance’ is driving a key voting bloc away from the GOP amid the coronavirus pandemic: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Karen Tumulty writes that when it comes to the reliable voting bloc of Americans who are 65 and older, President Trump is on shaky ground, thanks to his bungled response to the coronavirus.

Recent polling has shown a notable shift in support for Trump from America's senior citizens. According to Democratic pollster Geoff Garin, "Trump is blowing what had become an important Republican advantage."

Tumulty writes that this slip in support is also the fault of Republicans in general, who've been sending subtle messages to older Americans that their lives are not worth as much as a strong economy. Nevertheless, older Americans have been paying close attention to Trump's handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Fox’s Chris Wallace rips into Kayleigh McEnany for questioning faith of White House reporters

Published

There aren’t many people at Fox News who President Donald Trump angrily rails against on Twitter, but Chris Wallace is an exception. Wallace, although conservative, isn’t shy about being critical of Trump and his administration at times — and on Sunday, May 24, Wallace called out White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for questioning the faith of White House reporters.

Trump is demanding that governors in the U.S. allow churches to fully reopen sooner rather than later — and McEnany, at a press conference, joined him in that assertion. Reporters, however, brought up a very legitimate concern of governors: crowded religious gatherings, governors worry, could promote the spread of coronavirus. And McEnany accused White House reporters of being anti-religion — a claim that Wallace stressed was way out of line.
