Watch Trump brag about ghosting foreign leaders for weeks during his first year in office

Published

President Donald Trump recounted a bizarre story about refusing to speak to foreign leaders during a speech to a hate group on Saturday.

Trump addressed the Values Voters Summit, which is hosted by the Family Research Council — a designated hate group according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Trump told the crowd he received “pressure” to not move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

The president said he received calls from kings — and then provided his impersonation of how a king sounds.

“I stopped taking phone calls,” Trump admitted. “So I said I will not take their call, I will call them back in a couple of weeks.”

Trump said that after blowing off leaders, he moved the embassy and “nothing happened.”

“Everyone is happy,” Trump claimed.

In reality, the United Nations Security Council held an emergency meeting the very next day where 14 of the 15 members condemned Trump’s actions. The United States vetoed the resolution.

The Trump administration has not been seen by the Palestinians as an honest broker for peace in the Middle East since the decision.

Fifty-eight Palestinians were killed by Israel Defence Forces the day the embassy opened.

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

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.

‘Blather and hysteria’: Conservative columnist explains why GOP anti-impeachment ‘antics’ just crashed and burned

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.
