Trump caught red-handed lying about Mueller ‘correcting’ his statement on Russia probe

Published

on

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti on Thursday caught President Donald Trump pushing a lie about special counsel Robert Mueller and his statement about his final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

During his interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Trump accused Mueller of “making a fool of himself” and then told a blatant falsehood about Mueller issuing a “correction” to his report.

“What people don’t report is the letter [Mueller] had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong,” the president said. “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t talk about it!”

Mariotti, however, notes that this is a lie, as “Mueller never testified or sent a letter ‘correcting’ anything.”

The special counsel’s office and the Department of Justice did put out a joint statement after Mueller’s public statement on his report that emphasized that “the special counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination — one way or the other — about whether the President committed a crime.”

Nothing in the joint statement contradicted anything that Mueller said in his own public statement, however.

‘Trump ain’t playing 3D chess’: CNN polling analyst blows up myth that president’s racism is smart strategy

Published

on

President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic congresswomen were officially condemned in the House of Representatives on Tuesday, which has led to some cable news media speculation that Democrats might be overreaching in telling the president to stop being racist.

However, CNN polling analyst Harry Enten points to new data showing that Trump's racist attacks on the four women are seen negatively by the independent voters whom he needs if he wants to win reelection in 2020.

"Trump ain't playing 3D chess on this," Enten wrote on Twitter. "He's playing Candy Land. Trump managed to turn a potential advantage (a very liberal Dem party) into tweets that a majority are against."

Trump’s racist tweets hurt him with most voters — but helped him with Republicans: polls

Published

Polls are now in on President Donald Trump's vicious, racist attacks the four Democratic congresswomen of color referred to as "the Squad." And the new numbers, while bad for Trump, give insight into why he is so eager to keep the issue going.

A Reuters/Ipsos survey shows that while Trump's approval stands at a dismal 41 percent, and went down with Democrats and independents, it actually went up 4 points among Republican voters, to 72 percent.

A separate USA TODAY/Ipsos poll found that of the Americans who were aware of the controversy, 68 percent found Trump's behavior offensive — but 57 percent of Republicans said they agreed with him.

‘White Identity Politics’ and white backlash: How we wound up with a racist in the White House

Published

on

Today's Republican Party is the largest, most powerful and most dangerous white racist organization in the United States -- if not the world. Donald Trump, the president of the United States, is its leader. These are plain if not understated facts. No embellishment is needed. The examples are many.  Over the last few days Donald Trump has repeatedly dug into his bucket of racist political scatology, saying on Twitter and elsewhere that four nonwhite members of Congress ("Progressive' Democrat Congresswomen," as he mockingly put it) should leave America and go back to their own "crime infested" and "totally broken" countries.
