Revelation that Trump and Melania ‘sleep on separate floors’ sparks range of reactions

Published

on

An unauthorized biography of Melania Trump offers insight into the very private First Lady, including that she and her husband not only sleep in separate bedrooms but on separate floors.

CNN reports “Free, Melania: The Unauthorized Biography,” reveals that this First Lady is “way more powerful and influential with her husband than you might think,” and her “relationship with Ivanka Trump isn’t as chummy as it was pre-White House.”

But it was this tweet from CNN’s Brian Stelter that has drawn a lot of responses – some good, some bad – on social media:

Some note that there appears to be no mention of the fact that Melania Trump is (or was) a birther. She advanced her husband’s lies about President Barack Obama not being born in America, which is a lie.

Some noted that the Obamas were practically under a 24/7 media microscope, and if this story had been about them or the Clintons it would have garnered weeks of Fox News coverage:

Republican response to potential pandemic aims at protecting Trump with cowardice, hypocrisy and outright lies

Published

The last time a deadly virus spread quickly across continents, Republicans in Congress ramped up xenophobic rhetoric to fear-monger ahead of the 2014 midterm elections. Echoing Donald Trump, who at the time hosted a weekly "Fox & Friends," Republicans called for a travel ban and spread misinformation. "[President] Obama should apologize to the American people & resign!" Trump tweeted in October of 2014. Public polls right before the midterm elections showed that nearly 80% of Republicans thought the U.S. government should quarantine people who had recently been in a West African country with a major Ebola outbreak and nearly 50% worried they would be exposed to the Ebola virus. It was a catastrophic election for Democrats, with Republicans winning nine Senate seats and 13 House seats.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe bashes Mike Pence for sucking up to Trump during coronavirus briefing

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough gave credit to President Donald Trump for delivering a news conference on the coronavirus, but he bashed Vice President Mike Pence for "kowtowing" to his boss after he was tasked with leading the response to the outbreak.

The president placed Pence in charge of the administration's response, but the "Morning Joe" host said the vice president embarrassed himself by praising Trump during the White House briefing.

"Of course, we're grading on a lower scale and, of course, we had to listen to poor Mike Pence bow and scrape and talk about how great Donald Trump was every three seconds," Scarborough said. "But, again, all that aside, the president came out, got the message out. Yes, he was being overly optimistic, but there were several times, I believe, during that press conference, where he said, yes, it could get worse, and his health official said, that's what we need to prepare communities for, and this is what communities need to do."

Published

on

The White House pushed out a top Pentagon official last week as part of an ongoing purge of administration officials who disagree with President Donald Trump.

John Rood, who served as undersecretary of Defense for policy since January 2018, resigned Feb. 19 after clashing with the White House and colleague on the National Security Council, reported Politico.

“He never hesitated to tell the White House that he disagreed on stuff,” said one former administration official. “He definitely wasn’t a loyalist.”
