White House Press Secretary on Sunday agreed with North Korea Dictator Jim Jong-un’s assessment that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a “low IQ.”
In a tweet over the weekend, President Donald Trump revealed that he “smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse.”
North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

“Can you explain why Americans should not be concerned the president of the United States is essentially siding with a murderous authoritarian dictator over a former vice president of the United States?” Meet the Press host Chuck Todd asked Sarah Sanders on Sunday.
“The president’s not siding with that,” Sanders replied. “I think they agree in their assessment of former Vice President Joe Biden. The president’s focus in this process is the relationship he has and making sure we continue on the path towards denuclearization.”
“The president of the United States takes the North Korean dictator’s word about Joe Biden?” Todd pressed. “What happened to speaking with one voice on American foreign policy? Is the president not setting up trying to have world leaders sort of pick which political party they should side with? I don’t understand what message the president is sending here.”
Sanders, however, insisted that Trump “doesn’t need somebody else to give him an assessment of Joe Biden.”
“He’s given his own assessment,” she continued. “I’m sure you have covered it. The president watched him and his administration with President Obama fail for eight years. He has come in in 2 1/2 years and cleaned up a lot of the messes left behind. We shouldn’t be in the position we’re in to have to deal with North Korea at the level we are if they had done their job.”
“At the same time, the president wants to develop that relationship and he wants to actually get something done. He doesn’t want to just talk in pretty rhetoric,” Sanders added.

This poisonous mindset convinced Republicans that anything is justifiable
On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi said she asked the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee to draw up articles of impeachment. Her announcement was historic, decisive and fierce due to three simple and overlooked words: once again and enemies.
In using “once again,” the speaker of the House signaled that the House Democrats are prepared to expand the scope of the indictment against Donald Trump to include his complicity in the 2016 assault by Russia on the sovereignty of the American people as well as his enlisting of another foreign leader to undermine the integrity of 2020.
Nikki Haley busted by Civil War historian after claiming the Confederate flag was once a symbol of ‘heritage’
Former South Carolina Governor and Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Friday stirred controversy when she claimed that the Confederate flag was once a noble symbol that only lost legitimacy once it was "hijacked" by a mass murderer.
During an interview with talk show host Glenn Beck, Haley described how she reacted after white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
"Here is this guy who comes out with this manifesto, holding the Confederate flag," she said, referring to Roof. "And [he] had just hijacked everything that people thought of. We don't have hateful people in South Carolina -- there's always the small minority, that's always going to be there -- but people saw it as service and sacrifice and heritage, but once he did that, there was no way to overcome it."
Ex-Infowars staffer exposes the twisted world of Alex Jones in a new tell-all article
Some people listen to far-right conspiracy theorist/radio host and Infowars founder Alex Jones purely for the entertainment value; many of Jones’ hardcore followers, however, take him quite seriously. Former employee Josh Owens used to be one of them. But in a tell-all article for the New York Times, the Texas-based writer explains why he changed his mind and quit what he once considered a dream job.
Owens recalls that he first went to work for Jones in 2012. The writer explains, “Jones — wanting to expand his website, Infowars, into a full-blown guerrilla news operation and hoping to scout new hires from his growing fan base — held an online contest. At 23, I was vulnerable, angry and searching for direction. So, I decided to give it a shot. Out of what Infowars said were hundreds of submissions, my video — a half-witted, conspiratorial glance at the creation and function of the Federal Reserve — made it to the final round.”
