White House lashes out at ‘asinine’ Meghan McCain after she accuses Ivanka of crashing her dad’s funeral

Published

The Trump White House is now in a war of words with “View” co-host Meghan McCain.

McCain on Tuesday trashed first daughter Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner during a segment in which she claimed both of them showed up uninvited to the funeral of her father, the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

“No offense, they crashed my dad’s funeral,” McCain said. “They get nothing from me. Really, they’re not good people.”

Elsewhere in the segment, McCain said Ivanka didn’t do much real work in the White House and also called her assorted initiatives “nebulous.”

A White House spokesperson hit back against McCain on Wednesday and told People Magazine that it didn’t take McCain’s criticisms of the first daughter seriously.

“The idea that the hosts of The View… have any factual reads on what goes on within the Trump family is completely asinine,” they said. “Ivanka is proud of this administration and the work that they have done over the last two-and-a-half years.”

Additionally, People notes that some reports have claimed that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) actually did invite Jared and Ivanka to McCain’s funeral, although McCain herself may not have been aware of this.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
