On Thursday, Politico reported that the top communications official for the National Security Council is departing — and that President Donald Trump will replace him with a key aide to his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

“Mike Martin, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, is leaving the White House later this month, according to a White House official,” reported Meridith McGraw. “Martin worked under President Donald Trump’s last two national security advisors, John Bolton and Robert O’Brien. During that time, he played a lead role in crafting White House messaging for some of the most tumultuous moments of the Trump presidency, including the strike on Iranian major general Qasem Soleimani, the raid against Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and alleged Iranian attacks on ships in international waters. He also assisted with White House communications on counter-China efforts and travel restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic.”

“He will be replaced by Eddie Vasquez, a top communications aide focusing on international negotiations for Trump senior advisor Jared Kushner,” continued the report. “Vasquez most recently helped with the roll-out of Kushner’s Middle East peace plan, according to the White House official, an effort that hasn’t progressed significantly since the plan’s release.”

This comes after Trump replaced White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham with Trump campaign official Kayleigh McEnany, and is the latest of a long string of staffing shakeups that have plagued the administration.

Attorney Ken White, a former federal prosecutor, has taken a look at some of the Trump campaign's latest legal filings and has found them to be equal parts "shockingly ridiculous" and "stunningly incompetent."

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

Published

on

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.

A video from Germany is circulating on social media, showing a COVID-denier addressing a rally, only to have her speech interrupted by a security guard who was disgusted by her comparisons of pandemic restrictions to the Holocaust.

“I feel like Sophie Scholl, since I've been active in the resistance, giving speeches, going to protests, distributing flyers," the woman says to the audience, referring to the famous "White Rose" resistance fighter who opposed the Nazis during World War II.
