Trump’s frustrated lawyers see their legal advice go down the drain every time the president gets tips from Fox News hosts: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump believes that what he hears over public airwaves on Fox News is smarter legal advice than any attorney could provide, The New York Times reported Thursday.

White House counsel Pat Cipollone is currently directing Trump’s legal strategy — at least, that is, until he turns on cable news.

“Trump has been watching Fox News and other coverage of congressional efforts to obtain the parts of Mr. Mueller’s report that were redacted by Mr. Barr, people close to him said,” The Times reported. “At times, his impulses have contradicted the lawyers’ advice, they said.”

The Fox News approach may backfire.

“Yet the president risks actually pushing Democrats into doing what they otherwise might not have. After Mr. Mueller wrapped up his investigation by saying that he had not established a conspiracy between Mr. Trump and Russia and could neither accuse nor exonerate him of obstructing justice, House leaders poured water on the prospect of impeachment,” The Times explained. “But the president’s stiff-arm response to congressional requests for testimony and information has angered Democrats and some say increased the chances that they may yet pursue impeachment.”

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
