‘The fix is already in’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe accuses Trump and Bolton of Senate testimony conspiracy

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough doesn’t trust John Bolton’s intentions when it comes to testifying before President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

The “Morning Joe” host said he believes the former national security adviser has cut a behind-the-scenes deal with the White House on his offer to testify.

“Forgive me for being cynical, but I think John Bolton wants to sell his book,” Scarborough said. “These people who were saying, you know what? We’ll give you Bolton. You give us, fill in the blank. I mean, whoever else is called, if the Republicans call (anyone), will not talk about executive privilege, but I guarantee you John Bolton will.”

Scarborough said the fix was in.

“You talk about drug deals,” he said. “I think there’s a smaller drug deal going on between Bolton and the White House right now, where there’s a nod and a wink. Yes, I’m going to say that I’ll testify, knowing perfectly well the second he gets there to testify the White House will claim executive privilege, and he’ll say, you know what? I came here to testify, but this really does fit under executive privilege, and I’m not going to weaken the presidency and so then Republicans call who they want to call. I think the fix is already in here.”

"Much of the suffering and death coming was preventable. The president has blood on his hands," the Globe's editorial board writes.

Trump’s much-hyped Walmart and CVS coronavirus testing centers have been a massive flop

Published

on

During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump brought several corporate bigwigs with him to announce that major retailers Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Target would all be making their parking lots available to set up drive-through COVID-19 testing centers.

"The goal is for individuals to be able to drive up and be swabbed without having to leave your car," the president said.

It's been nearly three weeks since that announcement, however, and CNN reports that companies have only set up five of these testing centers in the United States so far -- and that none of them are available to the general public.

Published

According to a CNN report this Tuesday, the Defense Department offered two weeks ago to make thousands of ventilators available, but the Trump administration failed to take them up on the offer.

After offering to send 2,000 ventilators to FEMA and HHS, the Pentagon never got the go-ahead to ship them off or any sort of directions on where to send them to.

CNN reports that the Defense Department also made its testing labs available, but still hasn't heard back from the White House.

Read the full report over at CNN.
