Trump Just Tweeted A Pathetic Response To Tonight’s Obamacare Repeal Defeat

by admin
The President of the United States, having done nothing more than fire off a few tweets in support of the latest, last-ditch effort to partially repeal the Affordable Care Act (the “skinny” repeal), took to Twitter tonight to grouse about how three Republicans – Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Susan Collins (R-ME), and John McCain (R-AZ) killed the effort to strip some sixteen million people of their healthcare. 3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017 Trying […]

Congress Just Moved To Punish Trump For His Threat Against Senator Murkowski

by admin
The budding feud between President Trump and Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is  escalating quickly, with congress now looking into investigating the President for arm twisting that may have crossed the line. It all began Tuesday when Sen. Murkowski joined Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in voting no on a procedural motion that allowed the Republicans’ TrumpCare bill no one has yet seen to move to floor for debate.  The motion passed anyway, but two days later the President’s anger hasn’t. First, he publicly shamed Sen. Murowski on Twitter yesterday hoping to pressure her into falling in line on subsequent votes. […]

Top Generals Just Defied Trump, Refused To Change Transgender Policy Until Order From Mattis

by admin
Yesterday’s abrupt and uncalled for ban on transgender Americans serving in the US military took everyone by surprise, including the Pentagon. The President apparently fired off the edict on Twitter without informing anyone in the military and with no consideration for what would happen to the 4,000 or so active duty transgender soldiers currently serving American empire across the world. After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow…… — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2017 When Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked […]

Anthony Scaramucci Called Me to Unload About White House Leakers, Reince Priebus, and Steve Bannon

by admin
On Wednesday night, I received a phone call from Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director. He wasn’t happy. Earlier in the night, I’d tweeted, citing a “senior White House official,” that Scaramucci was having dinner at the White House with President Trump, the First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine. It was an interesting group, and raised some questions. Was Trump getting strategic advice from Hannity? Was he considering hiring Shine? But Scaramucci had his own question—for me. “Who leaked that to you?” he asked. I said I couldn’t give him that information. […]

Senate Votes Down Broad Obamacare Repeal

by admin
But the victory could be fleeting: Senate Republicans still have no agreement on a repeal bill that they can ultimately pass to uproot the law that has provided health insurance to millions of Americans. The Senate is now moving ahead with debate, amendments and ultimately a final vote in the coming days on legislation that would have a profound effect on the American health care system — roughly one-sixth of the United States’ economy. But it is entirely possible that by week’s end, the senators will have passed nothing. “Now we move forward towards truly great health care for the […]

Trump Says Transgender People Will Not Be Allowed in the Military

by admin
It was not clear what prompted Mr. Trump’s decision. The Pentagon referred questions about the policy change to the White House, where several officials did not immediately respond to questions about the reasoning and timing behind Mr. Trump’s decision. But the announcement came amid a debate on Capitol Hill over the Obama-era practice of requiring the Pentagon to pay for medical treatment related to gender transition. The dispute has unfolded as Congress considers a nearly $700 billion spending bill to fund the Pentagon. Representative Vicky Hartzler, Republican of Missouri, has proposed an amendment that would bar the Pentagon from spending […]

Pres. Trump Just Cursed In Front Of 40,000 Boy Scout Children In Unhinged Speech

by admin
The President of the United States can’t even be trusted to speak to a group of children and their parents without making a fool of himself. Within minutes of beginning his speech in front of the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree in West Virginia, Trump had boasted about how large the crowd present was, began attacking the “fake news” media and threw out a curse word sure to anger his evangelical supporters. Trump, to kids at Scout jamboree: “Who the hell wants to speak about politics when I’m in front of the Boy Scouts?” https://t.co/Rz5Tko7WW8 — Bradd Jaffy […]
