Trump says the press ‘have to have the last word’ — as he drags his lie about Alabama into 7th day

Published

The president of the United States returned to the White House from Trump National Golf Club on Saturday — and launched yet another inaccurate rant about the press.

In a tweet lacking in any self-awareness, Donald Trump complained about the press needing to have the last word as he repeated his lie that Hurricane Dorian threatened Alabama last Sunday.

“The failing New York Times stated, in an article written by Obama flunky Peter Baker (who lovingly wrote Obama book), ‘Even after the President forecast the storm to include Alabama.’ This is not true. I said, very early, that it may hit Alabama,” Trump argued. “A big difference…fake news.”

In reality, Trump said Alabama “will most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated.”

Trump’s lie was fact-checked within 20 minutes by his own government, but that has not stopped Trump from repeating the lie all week.

Trump also complained that the media fact-checked him as he lied about what happened for seven days.

“I would like very much to stop referring to this ridiculous story, but the lamestream media just won’t let it alone,” Trump argued.

“They always have to have the last word, even though they know they are defrauding and deceiving the public,” Trump inaccurately claimed.

Mitch McConnell may let Republicans write Senate impeachment rules without Democratic votes

Published

on

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is plotting to shut out Democrats on impeachment if a bipartisan compromise on rules for the trial can't be reached.

The Kentucky Republican said this week that he hopes to reach an agreement on rules for the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, but he's also readying a "backup plan" in case he can't reach an agreement with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, reported Vanity Fair.

“The first thing Sen. Schumer and I will do is see if there’s a possibility of agreement on a procedure,” McConnell said. “That failing, I would probably come back to my own members and say, ‘Okay, can 51 of us agree how we’re going to handle this?’”
