Trump’s deputy press secretary owned online after claiming Mike Pence is not anti-LGBTQ

Published

White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere was mocked online on Thursday after posting a bizarre argument claiming Vice President Mike Pence is not anti-LGBTQ.

Deere, who is a gay man working for an anti-LGBTQ administration, made something of a “but I have a black friend” defense of the Vice President.

“For all of you who still think our VP is anti-gay, I point you to his and the Second Lady’s schedule tomorrow where they will join Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his partner Dr. Matthew Barrett for lunch in Ireland,” Deere tweeted on Monday.

Published

on

The conservative Wall Street Journal urged readers to tune out President Donald Trump's daily coronavirus briefings.

The newspaper's editorial board published a column Wednesday evening lamenting that Trump had turned those news conferences into an airing of grievances instead of useful updates on the public health crisis.

"The briefings began as a good idea to educate the public about the dangers of the virus, how Americans should change their behavior, and what the government is doing to combat it," the column began. "They showed seriousness of purpose, action to mobilize public and private resources, and a sense of optimism. Mr. Trump benefitted in the polls not because he was the center of attention but because he showed he had put together a team of experts working to overcome a national health crisis."

BOMBSHELL: Secret provision sets up mysterious $450 billion coronavirus bailout fund — with almost no oversight

Published

on

A last-minute provision tucked into the coronavirus recovery bill allows the Federal Reserve to set up a $450 billion bailout plan with almost no oversight.

The previously unreported provision -- which makes the bailout funds exempt from the federal open meetings law -- was inserted into the 880-page bill during the rush to get it passed, Politico revealed.

Right wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh baselessly accused Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, of being a "Hillary Clinton sympathizer" who wants "to get rid of Donald Trump" during a Tuesday broadcast.

After claiming that the media tries to use its press briefings to undermine President Donald Trump, Limbaugh accused ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl of bringing in a reporter from Phoenix TV, a privately owned company stationed in Hong Kong with connections to the Chinese government. Limbaugh claimed that Fauci "gave Karl a-thumbs up, like a 'job well done' kind of thing" after the press briefing.
