Published

on

On Wednesday, an editorial in The Washington Post ripped President Donald Trump for his ongoing “drama” surrounding his tax returns. In a bombshell report, The New York Times revealed a decade worth of Trump’s tax information and transcripts.

They went on to slam trump as a “disastrously poor businessman.”

The said the new tax information exposed him as a “disastrously poor businessman, at least through 1994. Which has us wondering: At this point, what does Mr. Trump have left to hide? The Times’s analysis of the records contains more indications of sleaziness than business acumen.”

Trump responded to the report by calling it a “fake news hit job” and saying that his business dealings were nothing but a “sport.”

Still, the editorial board ripped Trump for breaking presidential norms.

“But it should not fall to courts or state officials to enforce a norm that previously did not need to be mandated. The president should end this drama now and finally release the rest of his tax returns,” they wrote.

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle.
