Here are the 5 wildest moments from Trump’s furious Rose Garden rant about Mueller and Pelosi

Published

on

President Donald Trump delivered an angry and defensive rant in the White House Rose Garden on Wednesday in which he lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who earlier in the day accused him of engaging in a “coverup.”

The president often swung wildly from one grievance to another, and he regularly made baseless claims about supposed “crimes” that were committed by Democrats trying to undermine his presidency.

Here are the five craziest moments from Trump’s Rose Garden rant.

1.) Trump cancels all plans to work on rebuilding American infrastructure until Democrats agree to stop investigating him.

Trump told reporters that he was putting off all talks on infrastructure unless Democrats stop probing his administration.

“You can’t do it under these circumstances,” the president complained. “So get these phony investigations over with.”

2.) Trump scolds reporters for their work documenting special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The president alleged without presenting any evidence that his political opponents had tried to set him up to collude with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election, and he attacked reporters for not repeating his wild assertions as fact.

“The crime was committed on the other side!” the president fumed. “This whole thing was a takedown attempt at the President of the United States. And all of you should be ashamed for the way you reported it!”

3.) Trump slams Nancy Pelosi for saying he’s engaged in a “coverup.”

The president seemed particularly angry that Pelosi accused him of trying to conceal information about his past actions from the American public.

“Instead of walking happily into a meeting, I walked into a meeting with people who said I had done a coverup,” Trump said. “I don’t do coverups.”

In fact, Trump’s personal attorney last year pleaded guilty to making an illegal campaign contribution under Trump’s instructions to cover up his past affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

4.) Trump regularly refers to himself in the third person while trying to discredit the Mueller investigation.

“They hated President Trump,” Trump said of Mueller’s team of prosecutors. “They hated him, with a passion.”

5.) Trump freaks out about Democrats even discussing impeachment.

Although Speaker Pelosi is still holding the line against firing up impeachment hearings, Trump grew furious at the idea that the word was even being discussed.

“All of a sudden I hear last night that they’re going to have another meeting about the ‘I-word,'” Trump said, referring to impeachment. “The ‘I-word!’ Can you imagine? I don’t speak to Russians about campaigns! It’s a hoax! The greatest hoax in history!”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

on

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering op-ed asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering op-ed, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
