London mayor trolls Trump: He doesn’t deserve red-carpet treatment in Britain

Published

on

London mayor Sadiq Khan slammed President Donald Trump on his second day in Britain.

The president attacked Khan as a “stone cold loser” shortly before arriving Monday morning in London, and Khan fired back the next day, reported the Independent.

“Donald Trump basically is the poster boy for the far right movement around the world,” Khan said.

The mayor bashed Trump for pushing to ban travelers from some Muslim nations, and he said the president had inspired right-wing leaders in other countries.

“A number of things he has said and done is causing problems, people in France, Hungary, Italy, the UK,” Khan said, “who are having their views which are abhorrent normalized and mainstreamed because some of the things Donald Trump has done.”

Khan warned that Trump and his right-wing allies were undoing gains made since World War II.

“In the last 70 years we have not had a war in mainstream Europe,” he said, “so it does worry me that the right(-wing) part of politics is setting the agenda, but what worries me more is the fruits of this will be exploited by the far right, and these fruits are poisonous.”

He disagreed with prime minister Theresa May’s invitation of the U.S. president.

”The red carpet is not an honor that should be bestowed on this president,” he said.

While most of his colleagues worked out of plain, professional offices, Schock's working space was reminiscent of Downtown Abbey.

Writing in the Journal Star, columnist Phil Luciano observed that First Lady Melania Trump's redecoration of several White House rooms seems to borrow heavily from Schock's style.

‘The ground is shifting’: Longtime GOP aide sounds the alarm that Trump is putting Arizona in play

Published

on

Chuck Coughlin, who once served as a top aide to two different Republican governors in Arizona, is warning that President Donald Trump is putting his state in play for the 2020 presidential election.

In an interview with Politico, Coughlin said his party has expressed real anxiety about the state turning blue next year.

"Republicans are very concerned,” he said. "The ground is shifting."

At the moment, just 45 percent of Arizona voters have a favorable view of Trump, while 53 percent have an unfavorable view. Additionally, the victory of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) in last year's midterm elections showed that Democrats can be competitive in statewide races in a place that became famous for electing iconic conservative senators such as John McCain and Barry Goldwater.

PolitiFact corrects conservatives: The NYT Kavanaugh story has not been debunked

Published

on

The new report from The New York Times on the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh contained some stunning new revelations — including that several people tried to contact the FBI to corroborate Deborah Ramirez's assault allegation but were ignored, and that prominent attorney Max Stier alleges he saw Kavanaugh take part in a third assault.

But conservative news sites are now running with the idea that the Times article has been discredited and that the paper has retracted its claims. PJ Media, a prominent right-wing site, ran the headline "New York Times Now Admits New Kavanaugh Accusation Is Fake News."
