Trump attacks ‘Crazy Mueller report’ with swipe at McGahn: ‘Watch out for people that take so-called notes’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Friday attacked special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election by taking a swipe at former White House counsel Don McGahn.

“Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated and totally untrue,” the president ranted on Twitter. “Watch out for people that take so-called ‘notes,’ when the notes never existed until needed.”

Trump’s reference to “notes” was a nod toward a section of the Mueller report in which McGahn told the special counsel that the president scolded him for taking notes during a meeting.

“What-about these notes?” Trump asked, according to McGahn. “Why do you take notes? Lawyers don ‘t take notes. I never had a lawyer who took notes… I’ve had a lot of great lawyers, like Roy Cohn. He did not take notes.”

Conservative columnist blasts GOP as ‘partisan hacks for whom hypocrisy is second-nature’

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again ripped into The Squad, this time to undercut an emotional press conference in which Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) described the conditions her Palestinian relatives live under.

“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” the president tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”

Trump-loving evangelicals don’t want Mike Pence as president because he has too much ‘decency’: WaPo columnist

Published

on

Washington Post columnist Elizabeth Bruenig this week talked with Ana Marie Cox on her "With Friends Like These" podcast about how evangelical Christians have an almost apocalyptic fervor for supporting President Donald Trump.

Bruenig, who is herself a practicing Catholic, earlier this year traveled to her home state of Texas to get a sense of how evangelicals were feeling about politics headed into 2020.

What she found, she told Cox, was a group of Christian conservatives who are even more devoted to the president than they were just three years ago when they helped power his electoral college victory.
