Trump ridiculed for Presidential Daily Briefing claim: ‘This tweet has come back to haunt you, sir’

One of the more hilarious aspects of Donald Trump’s administration has been the frequency by which the president’s claims are undermined by his old tweets against Barack Obama.

After The New York Times published a bombshell report that Russia was offering bounties for the killing of U.S. troops in Afghanistan — and Trump had done nothing after being briefed on the intelligence — White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed that Trump had never been briefed on the topic.

But on Monday, CNN reported that the intelligence was included in the Presidential Daily Briefing (PDB).

This led analysts to conclude that Trump’s defense is that he was not personally briefed and was out-of-the-loop was because he had not read his PDB.

“Fact–Obama does not read his intelligence briefings nor does he get briefed in person by the CIA or DOD. Too busy I guess!” Trump argued.

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Tuesday said that she supported a "criminal investigation" into The New York Times for publishing details of President Donald Trump's tax information.

During an interview on Fox News, host Sandra Smith asked McEnany about Rep. Kevin Brady's (R-TX) call for the Department of Justice to open an investigation into the paper's reporting.

"The president hasn't pressed for that [investigation] but, look, that is a fair investigation to have," McEnany replied. "We've seen the politicization of taxes before. We've seen the IRS targeting Tea Party groups and its an unacceptable proposition for that to happen."

"The Trump team asked to inspect the ears of each debater for electronic devices or transmitters," Hemmer announced. "The Biden team has not consented to that."

"The Biden team wanted a break every 30 minutes, the Trump team said we will not have that," he added.
