President Donald Trump was slammed by the editorial board of the conservative Wall Street Journal on Tuesday evening.

“Donald Trump sometimes traffics in conspiracy theories—recall his innuendo in 2016 about Ted Cruz’s father and the JFK assassination—but his latest accusation against MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is ugly even for him,” the newspaper noted. “Mr. Trump has been tweeting the suggestion that Mr. Scarborough might have had something to do with the death in 2001 of a young woman who worked in his Florida office when Mr. Scarborough was a GOP Congressman.”

“There’s no evidence of foul play, or an affair with the woman, and the local coroner ruled that the woman fainted from an undiagnosed heart condition and died of head trauma,” The Journal noted.

“Mr. Trump always hits back at critics, and Mr. Scarborough has called the President mentally ill, among other things. But suggesting that the talk-show host is implicated in the woman’s death isn’t political hardball. It’s a smear,” the newspaper noted. “We don’t write this with any expectation that Mr. Trump will stop. Perhaps he even thinks this helps him politically, though we can’t imagine how. But Mr. Trump is debasing his office, and he’s hurting the country in doing so.”

Pat Robertson predicts Trump re-election will usher in apocalypse: ‘By all means get out and vote!’

Published

Televangelist Pat Robertson predicted President Donald Trump would win re-election, and that would usher in the long-promised End Times.

The 90-year-old broadcaster, who has consistently supported the president who is backed by white evangelicals, told "700 Club" viewers that he was certain Trump would win the Nov. 3 election, and he then warned that trouble would soon follow.

"We've never seen the like of it before, but I want to relate to you again, there is going to be a war," Robertson said. "Ezekiel 38 is going to the next thing down the line. Then a time of peace and then maybe the end, but nobody knows the day or the hour when the lord is going to come back. He said the angels don't know it and only the father knows it, so I'm not sure this is the second coming."
