Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law is facing a backlash for comments she recently made about German history.
Lara Trump told Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Thursday that allowing refugees into the country was “the downfall of Germany.” She added, “It was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany.”
“This president knows that. He’s trying to prevent it from happening,” Trump continued.

@LaraLeaTrump so…what are the worst things to happen to Germany? Immigrants under Merkel? Hitler? Allied invasion/occupation? Treaty of Versailles? Kristallnacht? Partition of Germany (1945-1990), 30 Years War?

Do any of these family members have any actual brain cells? I know she’s a Trump by marriage, but Jesus Christ read a fucking history book.

Boris Johnson ‘tremendously humiliated’ Donald Trump on a global scale at G-7 meeting: CNN analyst
United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson was one of President Donald Trump's favorite people to take over for Theresa May when she resigned this summer. But Johnson also mocked the U.S. president and humiliated him on a global scale, said New Yorker reporter Olivia Nuzzi.
During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
Trump allies acquiring ‘dirt’ on journalists to take them down during the 2020 election
President Donald Trump's war against the media has taken a next step. According to The New York Times, Trump's allies have been compiling information on reporters at CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times to strike back because the president believes they "aggressively investigated" him.
The information was revealed Sunday using information disclosed by associates of conservative Arthur Schwartz, who is spearheading the project. Schwartz is an adviser to Donald Trump Jr. and previously worked with Steve Bannon.
Black MSNBC host schools Joe Walsh on N-word tweets being racist: ‘Hard to put the toothpaste back in’
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is like a lighter version of President Donald Trump, said Republican strategist Shermichael Singleton. But MSNBC host Kendis Gibson couldn't help but ask Walsh about his history of racism.
In an interview after Walsh's announcement, Gibson asked hard questions about Walsh's history of racism. Walsh profusely apologized to former President Barack Obama, who Walsh waged war against during his tenure in the White House. While Wash was not a supporter of the racist birther campaign that Trump perpetuated, Wash does have a history of using racist terms on Twitter.
