On Friday, MSNBC host Ari Melber ripped Laura Ingraham, after President Donald Trump undercut her claim. Ingraham denied that Trump held up a D-Day ceremony to interview on her Fox News show — even though Trump admitted that he did.
“Some of you may have heard or read that President Trump supposedly held up the entire D-Day ceremony in order to do this interview with me. That is patently false. Fake news,” Ingraham told her viewers.
Melber then played a clip of Trump on Ingraham’s show confessing that he held up the ceremony on purpose.
“Patently false? Melber said. “Well, as Scooby Doo used to say, roh-roh! Her solemn assurance to her audience was undercut by the president himself who just minutes before actually admitted he held up the ceremony because of the Fox interview, and as the old saying goes — Congratulations you played yourself.”

White anti-vaxxers declare themselves to be the new ‘civil rights movement’
It was a scene meant to be reminiscent of the Civil Rights era: chants of “No segregation, no discrimination," T-shirts emblazoned with the moniker "Freedom Keepers," the sounds of "We Shall Overcome" emanating from the California state Capitol in Sacramento -- except the protest was led by mostly white people from affluent backgrounds who think vaccines are dangerous, POLITICO reports.
The protesters, who are adherents of the anti-vax movement, drew fire from lawmakers who represent minority communities. One lawmaker, Assemblywoman and Legislative Black Caucus member Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-Los Angeles), said the rally was "borderline racist" and ignorant of history.
The White House is now ‘furiously backpedaling’ after promoting gun background check legislation
Will President Donald Trump support background checks on firearms sales? At this point, it’s not even clear if the White House has enough internal coherence to claim he even has any position at all on the matter.
News broke Wednesday morning, originally from the conservative Daily Caller reporter Amber Athey, that White House Legislative Affairs Director Eric Ueland, along with Attorney General Bill Barr, brought a proposal for expanded background checks modeled off the Manchin-Toomey bill to GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill:
Did Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump break up over Iran?
It appears there is trouble in Warhawk paradise if Twitter is any indication.
A Twitter exchange between Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and President Donald Trump are battling over the recent drone strike of the Saudi oil fields. Trump, Graham and the Saudis are all blaming Iran, but Japan said that there is no evidence that it was Iran.
Aaron Blake at the Washington Post noted that Trump and Graham have long been together on foreign policy issues, but something changed when it comes to Iran.
