Trump ‘infuriated’ when officials tell him he can’t break the law — and it led to Kirstjen Nielson firing: NYT

Published

In a New York Times report, it was revealed President Donald Trump frequently flew into a rage when he was told he couldn’t do something because it was illegal.

In wake of Secretary Kirstjen Nielson’s firing, stories surfaced of their heated exchanges.

“The president berated Ms. Nielsen regularly, calling her at home early in the mornings to demand that she take action to stop migrants from entering the country, including doing things that were clearly illegal, like blocking all migrants from seeking asylum,” the Times wrote. “She repeatedly noted the limitations imposed on her department by federal laws, court settlements and international obligations.

“Those responses only infuriated Mr. Trump further. The president’s fury erupted in the spring of 2018 as Ms. Nielsen hesitated for weeks about whether to sign a memo ordering the routine separation of migrant children from their families so that the parents could be detained.”

Interestingly, the news comes as former White House Counsel Don McGahn revealed in a GOP lunch that he was one of the president’s punching bags.

“I spent the last couple of years getting yelled at,” McGahn said according to Axios. “And you may soon read about some of the more spirited debates I had with the president.”

According to CNN reports Sunday, Trump was becoming “increasingly unhinged” when it came to Nielsen.

This wasn’t the first time either. Trump regularly berated Nielsen in front of cabinet officials.

BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women

Published

on

The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.

The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.

"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.

Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
