Trump Tries To Get Into Navy’s Good Graces Amid Week Of Military Remarks Gone Awry

President Trump is apparently trying to make up for the backlash that ensued over his recent remarks regarding the military by praising the U.S. Navy’s reversal of a controversial cost-cutting decision that would cancel Catholic Masses at Naval bases in Southern California. On Saturday, the Navy announced that Catholic Masses at San Diego-area bases are ending as it declined to renew contracts with Catholic priests — a decision the department explained as a cost-cutting move, according to The ...

Trump Praises Federal Troops In Portland In Informercial-Like Tweet: ‘Matter Of Minutes’

President Trump on Tuesday continued expressing his unwavering support for federal law enforcement days after agents fatally shot a man who was suspected of killing a pro-Trump supporter during protests in Portland. In a Tuesday tweet, the President appeared to hail federal troops in Portland, who he praised for resolving “problems in a matter of minutes.” They are not “peaceful protesters”, as Sleepy Joe and the Democrats call them, they are THUGS – And it is all taking place in Democrat run...

Trump Claims ‘VERY High Marks’ For COVID Response As Death Toll Approaches 189k

President Donald Trump patted himself on the back for his widely panned response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has reached a death toll of nearly 189,000 in the U.S. as of Monday morning. “Starting to get VERY high marks in our handling of the Coronavirus (China Virus), especially when compared to other countries and areas of the world,” Trump tweeted on Monday. It is unclear where the “marks” are coming from. The White House did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for clarification. ...

Trump Scrambles To Deny Trashing John McCain And Fallen Soldiers

President Donald Trump on Thursday night denied in a series of tweets reports that he had mocked the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and fallen soldiers behind closed doors. In response to the Atlantic’s that he had complained about about lowering flags in honor of the senator’s death in 2018, Trump conceded that he was “never a big fan” of McCain but insisted that he had the flags lowered “without hesitation or complaint.” The President also denied calling McCain a “fucking loser” and deridin...

Trump Bashes Pelosi Over Salon Appointment That Flouted COVID-19 Rules

President Trump on Wednesday morning found yet another reason to continue bashing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): a hair salon appointment in San Francisco that apparently flouted the city’s COVID-19 restrictions. On Tuesday night, Fox News first reported on security footage of Pelosi visiting eSalon in San Francisco that shows the House speaker not wearing a mask while walking through the salon with wet hair. The owner of the salon, Erica Kious, told Fox News that she felt that it was “a s...

Trump Gives Conflicting Reason For Hospital Visit As His Meltdown Over Stroke-Gate Continues

President Donald Trump, who’s been insisting in the past 24 hours that he definitely didn’t have a stroke when he went to Walter Reed hospital in Bethesda, Maryland last November, offered a reason on Tuesday night for his hospital visit that contradicted the excuse he had given at the time. “The reason for the visit to Walter Reed, together with the full press pool, was to complete my yearly physical,” Trump tweeted late Tuesday as he railed once more against the notion that he had gone to th...

Pence Insists Trump Has ‘Remarkable’ Health Amid POTUS Tirade Against Stroke Claims

Nothing to see here, apparently. Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday backed President Trump’s ongoing denial that he suffered a stroke late last year — a suggestion that the President vehemently denies yet continues to rehash. Throughout Tuesday, Trump repeatedly brought up and denied a suggestion that CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart floated that speculated that the President’s unexpected visit to Walter Reed late last year was prompted by a stroke, which the President dismissed as “fake n...

GOPers Punt To Blaming Local Officials As Trump Praises Supporters In Portland Clash

Republicans on Sunday wouldn’t condemn President Trump’s praise for his supporters involved in a violent clash with Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon, but instead shifted blame to local officials. On Friday, Portland mayor Ted Wheeler wrote in a letter to Trump “no thanks” after the President said that he offered aid to Portland by sending federal law enforcement into the city to quell unrest amid ongoing protests against police brutality. The next day, Trump supporters descend...

Meadows ‘Applauds’ Trump For Tweet Stoking Unfounded ‘Deep State’ At FDA

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Sunday defended President Trump’s tweet the day before that baselessly accuses the “deep state” at the Federal Drug Administration of forcing drug companies to delay clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines in an effort to hurt his re-election campaign. The deep state, or whoever, over at the FDA is making it very difficult for drug companies to get people in order to test the vaccines and therapeutics. Obviously, they are hoping to delay the answer unt...

‘HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN’: Trump Livetweets His Meltdown Over Obama’s DNC Speech

President Donald Trump has been regularly issuing several angry tweets in response to various speeches at the 2020 Democratic National Convention this week. But he took his fury to a whole other level on Wednesday night when former President Barack Obama took the (virtual) stage. “HE SPIED ON MY CAMPAIGN, AND GOT CAUGHT!” Trump howled on Twitter about a half hour into Obama’s speech, once again pushing his evidence-free conspiracy theory about his predecessor. “WHY DID HE REFUSE TO ENDORSE ...

WH: Trump Calls For Goodyear Boycott Because ‘MAGA Is Unanimous With Blue Lives Matter’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday defended President Trump’s call for a boycott against Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. by attempting to bolster Trump’s unwavering support for law enforcement officers. In a Wednesday morning tweet, the President urged the public to boycott Goodyear tires over a “BAN ON MAGA HATS.” However, the Ohio-based company has not officially implemented a ban targeting MAGA hats, and stated that it’s asked its employees to “refrain from workplace exp...

Indignant Trump Lashes Out At Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech: ‘Thanks For Your Very Kind Words Michelle!’

Former First Lady Michelle Obama’s headliner speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on Monday night was an unflinching dressing-down of the current administration–and President Donald Trump apparently felt the bruise. “Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning. “[Joe] Biden was merely an afterthought, a good reason fo...

President Trump on Wednesday morning rehashed his racist appeal to suburbanites a day after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made the historic announcement of choosing Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. Late last month, the President nonchalantly tweeted that “people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream” would no longer have to worry about low income housing in their neighborhood.

Twitter's trending topics are 'illegal' says Trump, because trends are not nice enough to him

The president of the United States, folks. So disgusting to watch Twitter’s so-called “Trending”, where sooo many trends are about me, and never a good one.

Trump Claims He ‘Often’ Regrets Things He Retweets

President Donald Trump apparently has some regrets about his Twitter activity. Some. Trump took a rare moment to reflect on Friday when Barstool Sports exec Dave Portnoy asked if he’d ever regretted something he tweeted. “Often. Too often,” the President replied. “It used to be in the old days, before this, you’d write a letter and you’d say, ‘This letter’s really bad’ and you’d put it on your desk and then you’d go back tomorrow and you’d say ‘Oh, I’m glad I didn’t send this,'” he continued....

Trump Boosts False Conspiracy Theory That Doctors And CDC Are ‘Lying’ About COVID
