Welcome to the pop-up edition of “At the Movies,” hosted by Donald Trump.Our president and cultural commander in chief tried out a few riffs, working without a co-host Thursday night at one of his pep rallies, this one in Colorado Springs, Colo. With strategically situated African American and Asian American attendees in the audience behind him, on camera — the African American male to his left went sort of cold when “Gone With the Wind” came up — he lent the voice of federal authority to the opinion that no, “Parasite,” the staggeringly profitable hit from South Korea and a film not in Englis...

Trump fires back at former aide who testified that he attacked Secret Service agent: 'I hardly knew her'
Former President Donald Trump fired back at a former top aide to his chief of staff who testified before the Jan. 6 committee this Tuesday, saying in a post to his Truth Social platform that he he “hardly” knows who she is.
Trump made the post during the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, who served in Trump’s Office of Legislative Affairs and later as a top aide to former chief of staff Mark Meadows.
“I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and ‘leaker’), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down,” Trump wrote.

“Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible? I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!” he added.
Hutchinson testified that she heard Trump say the Secret Service should take away metal detectors and let all his supporters in for the "Strop the Steal" rally on Jan. 6 at the White House before the Capitol riot, even though some of them were carrying weapons.
She also said the White House chief of staff on Jan. 6 told her Trump was so mad when told he could not go to the Capitol that day, that he lunged at the steering wheel of his vehicle and at a Secret Service agent.
'Mike deserves it': Aide claims Trump said rioters seeking to hang Pence weren’t doing anything wrong
https://www.rawstory.com/trump-hang-mike-pence/Cassidy Hutchinson continued to provide bombshell testimony after a short recess during Tuesday's hastily scheduled hearing by the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Hutchinson described a conversation in the White House with her boss, chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House counsel Pat Cipollone after Meadows spoke on the phone with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
"I remember Pat saying something to the effect of, 'Mark, we need to do something more, they're literally calling for the vice president to be f*cking hung.' And Mark had responded something to the effect of, 'You heard him, Pat. He thinks Mike deserves it. He doesn't think they're doing anything wrong.' To which Pat said something -- 'This is f*ckng crazy. We need to be doing something more,'" she testified.
"Let me pause here on this point," Vice-Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) said. "The rioters chanted 'hang Mike Pence.' The president of the United States, Donald Trump, said that, 'Mike deserves it' and that those rioters were not doing anything wrong."
Cheney noted that Trump had expressed that opinion multiple times.

CNN's Chris Wallace was aghast as the House Select Committee held its first break of the sixth day of public hearings.
"Beyond these legalities, and we'll get to them, I mean, the take takeaway from this, and Cassidy Hutchinson draws a real timeline from Jan. 2nd, Rudy Giuliani saying it's going to be exciting, wait for it, and people knowing the increasing possibility of violence surrounding Jan. 6th, but what people are going to take away from this is that image inside the beast which is what they call the presidential limousine, inside the beast when Trump gets in, after the rally, and thinks he's going to Capitol Hill to be with the marchers and his Secret Service -- it's not just any Secret Service person" said Wallace. "It's the head of the presidential detail, Bobby Engel, says, 'no, we're going to the White House.' The president of the United States, I assume he's sitting in the backseat, reaches forward, tries to grab the steering wheel, and when the secret service head takes his hand away, he reaches with his other hand for the guy's throat!"
The "Beast" — the transport for the president — has the seat for the president further back from the driver and passenger seats. So, Trump would have had to launch himself far forward to try and grab the agents around the throat.
"I mean, it's — it's astonishing," Wallace said, aghast.
