Trump complained about Obama’s Hanukkah party — yet did it even worse himself

Published

on

President Donald Trump held the official White House Hanukkah party weeks before the holiday was slated to begin on Dec. 22.

Ironically, however, in 2011, Trump attacked President Barack Obama for holding an early Hanukkah party because he would be in Hawaii for the family’s annual Christmas celebration.

“Why was the Hanukah celebration held in the White House two weeks early? @BarackObama wants to vacation in Hawaii in late December. Sad,” Trump tweeted.

Just a few years later when it was his turn to hold a White House Hanukkah party, the goy-in-chief did it even earlier than Obama. In 2011, Obama held his party one week before the “eight crazy nights” began. Trump’s party is 11 days out from Hanukkah. Trump lit the candles anyway.

It’s unknown when Trump intends to leave Washington for his holiday celebrations. It’s assumed he will opt for the warmth of his Mar-a-Lago golf course, but the White House hasn’t announced details.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani took to Twitter to defend his client with a novel comparison: Trump's obstruction of document and witness production to Congress is basically the same as when George Washington signed the treaty that restored diplomatic relations with the British:

Democrats act like executive privilege was invented by @realDonaldTrump.

Either their ignorance or perversity ignores the historical reality that was created when George Washington refused to turn over any doc’s underlying the Jay Treaty...

Trump impeachment trial lawyers facing fresh scrutiny with new evidence of corruption involvement: report

Published

on

According to a report from Politico, two of Donald Trump's attorneys representing the president in his impeachment trial are risking possible damage to their own careers that could, at worst, put them in the company of disgraced former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who is currently under federal investigation.

Beginning, "They’ve been accused of orchestrating a criminal conspiracy. They’ve been dubbed ethically compromised. They’ve been labeled liars. They could even be called to testify in the impeachment case they were hired to combat. In the opening days of Donald Trump’s Senate trial, it has at times felt like the president’s lawyers are his co-defendants," the report notes that the attorneys, specifically Jay Sekulow and White House counsel Pat Cipollone, have embraced their roles defending Trump but at their own peril, given the president's history with lawyers doing his bidding.

‘Indiana deserves better’: GOP’s Mike Braun destroyed for tweeting out video of himself lying about impeachment

Published

on

Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) tweeted out a video clip of himself lying about impeachment evidence -- and was met with furious mockery.

The Indiana Republican told a reporter that he didn't think it was appropriate for a president to coerce a foreign country to investigate a political rival -- as witness testimony and other evidence shows President Trump did to Ukraine's president -- but Braun flatly denied that had occurred.

Braun posted a video clip of the exchange, and other Twitter users wondered why he would do that.

REPORTER: So you're saying that it's okay for a President to ask a foreign leader to investigate a political rival and withhold foreign aid to coerce him into doing so?
