Ukrainian president denies having ever spoken with Rudy Giuliani

Published

Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky on Tuesday denied that he ever met with or spoke with Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Reuters reports that the Ukrainian president never followed through on Trump’s requests that he work with Giuliani to help investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is one of Trump’s potential rivals in the 2020 presidential race.

During the now-infamous July 25th phone call between Trump and Zelensky, the American president repeatedly pushed his Ukrainian counterpart to look into discredited allegations of corruption on the part of Biden. Zelensky seemed generally receptive to working with Giuliani but made no concrete promises to do so.

The intelligence community whistleblower’s complaint against Trump claimed that Ukrainian officials generally understood that Zelensky would have to be willing to discuss Biden with Trump as a precondition for having a phone call with the American president.

Trump’s phone call with Zelensky is now at the center of an impeachment inquiry into the president being led by House Democrats.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.

‘The mess right in front of us’: Impeachment hearings reveal as much about dishonest congressional GOPers as Trump

Published

on

If the point of Wednesday's public testimony opening impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump were meant to show off credible accounts from straight-laced, super-patriotic, service-oriented diplomats, they were bulls-eyes.

If the point of Republican questionings was to make a mockery of the proceedings, they may have boomeranged—the Republicans are the ones who come across as partisan nitpickers intentionally trying to misdirect the point, underlying meaning and urgency of these proceedings.

If the overall tone, as Democratic leaders insist, was supposed to reflect somber, serious, sober consideration, well, they did that and more. Indeed, they made it downright scary to learn that Donald Trump and his team are running around in ways that show little respect for other nations, no understanding of diplomacy and no ability to actually handle appropriate communications within his team.
