WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas Department of Transportation worker who posted a tweet from the agency’s official Twitter account criticizing President Donald Trump is no longer employed by the department, the agency said.

Conway: I Don’t Share My Husband’s ‘Concerns’ About Trump’s Mental State

Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway said Monday that she didn’t agree with her husband’s assessment of President Donald Trump’s mental state. “I don’t share those concerns,” Conway told reporters outside the White House on Monday.

Trump says media trying to blame him for NZ massacre

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he is unfairly being blamed for the New Zealand mosque massacre.

Word of the week: Invasion

On March 15, a gunman killed at least 50 people and injured another 50 as they gathered in two Christchurch mosques. Minutes before the attacks, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had been emailed a 74-page document, variously called a “manifesto” and a “screed,” purported to have been written by the gunman. In it, the man – a 28-year-old Australian living in New Zealand – denounced immigrants as “invaders.” Hours later, Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House to mark the firs...

Conway: People Look For ‘Cheap And Easy’ To Align NZ Shooter With Trump Ideology

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway berated people for looking for the “cheap and easy” by aligning the motivations of the New Zealand shooter with a Trump-MAGA ideology. “I guess everybody scoured [the shooter’s manifesto], searched for Donald Trump’s name and there it is one time,” Conway said Monday morning on “Fox and Friends.” “I think people look for the cheap and easy, especially if it fits their own ideology.” She called the comparison “predictable and outrageous.” Conway says peo...

'I don't trust some computer to drive me around': Trump reportedly says he'd never get in a 'crazy' driverless car

Four sources told the news website Axios that President Donald Trump had a deep mistrust of driverless cars. Trump sometimes imagines scenes in which the cars veer out of control, Axios said. As Axios noted, Trump's administration has largely taken a "hands-off approach" to regulating the rapidly changing self-driving technology, but one source reportedly said Trump could be spurred into action to make the regulatory landscape much tougher for autonomous vehicles. President Donald Trump is no...

Mosque attacks and the narrative of exclusion | Letters

Guardian readers respond to the Christchurch shootingsJonathan Freedland (We must confront the right’s hate preachers, 16 March) is right to castigate Viktor Orbán, Matteo Salvini and Donald Trump for their anti-Islamic rhetoric. But we must not omit the part played by British politicians in deliberately adopting language that promotes hatred of religious and racial groups. Boris Johnson’s “letterboxes”, David Cameron’s “swarm” of migrants, Theresa May’s “Go home” posters, Sajid Javid’s “asylum ...

New Zealand mosque shooter 'acted alone'; sent manifesto to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern

Police in New Zealand said on Sunday that the right-wing terrorist behind a massacre at two mosques in Christchurch was acting alone, as it emerged the killer's manifesto had been sent to the country's prime minister minutes before the tragedy unfolded. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, sent a racist, rambling manifesto to prime minister Jacinda Ardern in which he denied being linked to any organisations and said he was acting on his own. The document, which praised President Donald Trump ...

Reductio Ad Absurdum

Here’s an opinion piece by the two NYU students who accosted Chelsea Clinton at that Christchurch massacre vigil and denounced her as part of the hate that had spurred the attack. This is because she tweeted criticism of Ilhan Omar during the original “benjamins” controversy more than a month ago. (Here’s what I wrote in response to that original flare-up. A month later I wrote this.) Many Jews who are not supporters of the Israel right or the occupation or AIPAC thought that Omar’s remarks us...

Joe Biden Accidentally Announces He’s ‘Running’

DOVER, Del. (AP) — Did Joe Biden accidentally reveal his plans to run for the White House? Or was it just another slip of the tongue by the former vice president with a reputation for veering off script? In a keynote speech at a dinner for the Delaware Democratic Party, Biden boasted Saturday that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running.” The only problem is that Biden hasn’t announced whether he will launch a third run for the White House, despite repeatedly teasing the possib...
