John Bolton keeps trying to change Trump — it’s not working: CNN reporter

CNN’s Dana Bash thinks that John Bolton might be on the outs with President Donald Trump.

During a CNN panel discussion about the disagreements between the two men, Bash said that Trump is souring on his latest appointed warhawk.

“Bolton has always been a true believer,” she said. “There is no gray area. It is black and it is white, especially on the issues of Iran, but also North Korea. And the fact that he agreed to go into the administration and was eager into the administration, by all accounts, is just a different approach from what others who are saying, you know, ‘I don’t agree with this guy, I’m not going to get involved.’ He believes so much in himself, John Bolton, that he believes he can even try to change — and successfully tweak — the way that the president approaches these things.”

She went on to say that she has spoken with her source, who has spoken with the president, and he’s not happy with Bolton.

“The president is actively badmouthing John Bolton,” Bash continued. “This is even before the North Korea thing. This is about specifically about Iran, saying that he’s worried that he just wants to start a war. This is something — this is not exactly a difference of world view that should surprise anybody.”

CNN reporter Gloria Borger wondered if the president googled John Bolton before he hired him.

"Only three things happened for me tonight," Jone said.

"Number one, Donald Trump refused to condemn white supremacy," he explained.

"Number two, the president of the United States refused to condemn white supremacy," he continued.

"Number three, the commander-in-chief refused to condemn white supremacy on the global stage -- in front of my children, in front of everybody's families -- and he was given the opportunity multiple times to condemn white supremacy," Jones said.

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’

Published

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"

Here’s all the evidence you need that the tax code wasn’t written for you

Published

on

The New York Times reported that Trump only paid $750 in taxes in 2016 and again in 2017, and documented how much of his lavish lifestyle he could write off.  I have no proof that this travesty is actually true.  But there is plenty of evidence that his tax code is definitely not written for you, the average reader.  It’s designed to do exactly what The New York Times is reporting.

You’ve probably read stories about how Warren Buffett realized his secretary was paying more in taxes than he was.  Well, it’s hardly an isolated tale.
