Russian media crows over Mueller report: ‘We will help you elect Trump once again — just like last time!’

Published

on

Russian state-owned media gloated over public revelations in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which showed the Kremlin interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win.

The Kremlin denied Mueller’s findings of “sweeping and systematic” election interference, but Russian media boasted that Vladimir Putin had won after the special counsel did not bring additional charges at the investigation’s conclusion, reported The Daily Beast.

Russian media watchdog Julia Davis said the country’s state TV hosts gleefully repeated Trump’s “no collusion, no obstruction” mantra throughout Mueller’s investigation, and they told viewers that economic sanctions would soon be lifted.

“Average Russians are being sold on the idea that Putin’s long-term strategy is bound to pay off,” Davis wrote. “According to the Russian state TV, Putin always wins — even when he loses.”

Russian media has openly bragged — sarcastically, they say — in recent years about propaganda campaigns directed at other countries, including the U.S., and experts say the Kremlin has already aimed online disinformation at American voters ahead of the 2020 elections.

Soon, we will help you elect Trump once again,” Evgeny Popov, host of the popular Russian “60 Minutes” program, boasted to Davis. “Just like the last time. Get ready!”

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-IL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
