Meadows: I ‘Would Not Have Recommended’ Giving Woodward So Much Trump Access

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows asserted on Wednesday night that allowing Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward to speak to President Donald Trump, who subsequently told the reporter he was downplaying COVID-19 on purpose, was probably not a good idea. During an interview on Fox News, Meadows said he was “not surprised” Trump spoke to Woodward as the journalist was writing a new book about the President titled “Rage.” “Honestly, his access to the White House is probably something th...

Trump Blabbed To Woodward For Months Because He Thought He’d Get Good PR

Trump Was Personally Involved In Pushing Wacky Cruz-JFK Assassination Conspiracy Theory, Says Cohen

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, alleged on Tuesday night that Trump had directly approved a National Enquirer front-page story in 2016 that ludicrously claimed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’s father was involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Melania Trump’s Remodeled Rose Garden Is Already Crumbling

Less than three weeks after it was debuted, First Lady Melania Trump’s Rose Garden renovation at the White House is reportedly falling apart. According to CNN, there are “issues with water drainage” and “some minor complications with updated construction” at the iconic garden, requiring new repairs. During Trump’s Republican National Convention (RNC) speech in the garden, the lack of drainage caused the ground to become too muddy to hold the 75 guests at the event without putting down artific...

Cohen: Trump ‘Couldn’t Care Less’ About His White Working Class Supporters

In his new book, Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer who is currently serving a prison sentence, portrayed his ex-client as an elitist with little concern for those who support him if they aren’t from “the ruling class.” According to Cohen’s tell-all book, “Disloyal: A Memoir,” as reported by NBC News on Tuesday, Trump held a deep admiration for Russian leader Vladimir Putin during the 2016 presidential race, admiration that was sparked by the now-Presid...

Trump Ends Labor Day Presser With Complaint About ‘Cancel Culture’

President Donald Trump held a Labor Day press conference at the White House on Monday and gave a speech that largely ticked off all the boxes: False claims about how well he’s handling the pandemic, rants about China “ripping off” the U.S., and fearmongering about “Democrat-run” cities. At the end of the presser, Trump expanded on his threat to somehow yank funding from public schools that incorporate the New York Times’ 1619 Project, which focuses on the legacy of slavery, in their lesson plans...

WH COVID Adviser Advocating Controversial ‘Herd Immunity’ Approach

Scott Atlas, a new member of the White House’s COVID-19 task force, is reportedly pushing President Donald Trump to combat the coronavirus with the “herd immunity” strategy, which requires allowing mass infections to bloom throughout the country uninhibited.
