President Donald Trump awarded a government contract to his struggling Florida resort to host next year’s G7 summit, and “The View” co-hosts cringed at accounts of the club’s bedbug infestation.
The White House insists the president won’t make money off the deal, but whatever free advertising he’s getting from the most likely unconstitutional venture is being undercut by reminders of a settlement Trump Organization reached with a guest who was bitten by bedbugs.
“Isn’t that the place that had bedbugs?” said co-host Abby Huntsman.
“Oh, no!” said co-host Sunny Hostin, recoiling and making a look of disgust.
“There was a lawsuit,” said guest host Ana Navarro. “There was a lawsuit in 2016 which they settled with a guy who had welts and, you know, bedbug bites.”
Hostin screamed and shuddered.
“The G7 summit is in June in Miami,” Navarro added. “I’m from Miami. I think Miami is paradise. Not even people from Miami want to be in Miami in June. It’s the middle of hurricane season. So, I mean, do not tell me there’s not places in Utah which are not nicer to be in in June.”
‘He got caught!’: Adam Schiff gives impassioned condemnation of Trump to close out the day’s impeachment hearing
When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was gaming out the plan for impeachment hearings, she took a somewhat surprising step by placing the Intelligence Community front and center in the proceedings as it pursues the Ukraine investigation. And on Tuesday, after a long day of testimony from four critical witnesses, Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivered an impassioned speech that exemplified why Pelosi entrusted the trying task of leading the effort to him.
Schiff thanked Ambassador Kurt Volker and White House aide Tim Morrison for their testimony, noting that Volker had debunked Republicans' attacks on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Republicans are getting scared about Gordon Sondland’s Wednesday impeachment testimony: report
Ambassador Gordon Sondland may be the most dangerous witness for President Donald Trump in the impeachment hearings so far, and that's in part because he has a lot to lose.
And according to CNN's Shimon Prokuecz, his scheduled testimony for Wednesday morning is making Republicans nervous:
Multiple GOP sources say they are most worried about what Gordon Sondland will do tomorrow - and whether he will turn on the President. The fear, Republicans say, is that he could undercut the last GOP defense. @mkraju
Trump’s brief out-of-character anti-vaping stance was a mystery — but he flip-flopped back to form
The momentary question upon hearing that Donald Trump’s plan to ban flavored vapes had gone up, well, in smoke was only under which category of Trump strangeness to file this new failed act of governance.
Was it another example of Trump's hypocrisy of advocating one thing, only to do another? Was it another opportunity to suppress a move for public health in favor of perceived personal political advancement? Was it an actual defense of new jobs in the vaping industry over the effects that these jobs have on the vastly growing numbers of new young smokers? Was it another case of Trump surprising his own people by making the announcement on Twitter rather than actually talking to his own administrative staff?
