Meadows: CDC Chief’s 2021 Vaccine Timeline ‘Not Based’ On Info From Those ‘Closest To The Process’

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows asserted on Thursday morning that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield didn’t have his facts straight when he told Congress that a COVID-19 vaccine wouldn’t be widely available until 2021, contradicting President Donald Trump’s insistence that the vaccine would be ready in October. When the hosts of “Fox and Friends” asked who was correct, Meadows claimed it was Trump “based on what I know behind the scenes, how quic...

As POTUS Rants About ‘Explosive Trees,’ Biden Warns Trump Win Means ‘More Of America Ablaze’

President Trump on Monday continued dismissing climate change as a cause behind the raging wildfires across several West Coast states by making an absurd suggestion in his attempt to bolster his argument that lack of “forest management” is to blame for the ongoing devastation. Shortly upon landing in McClellan Park, California ahead of a briefing on the wildfires and surveying the damage from the relentless blaze, Trump told reporters that a “lot of things were possible” when pressed on whethe...

Navarro Grows Irate As He Accuses CNN Host Of ‘Cherry Picking’ Trump’s COVID Downplay

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday found himself in a heated exchange with CNN’s Jake Tapper as the anchor took him to task on President Trump’s purposeful downplaying of the COVID-19 pandemic in its early stages, according to legendary journalist Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book. When pressed on why Trump misled the public on COVID-19 — citing his remarks to Woodward in a Feb. 7 interview when the President privately expressed fear over COVID-19 after being warned by national s...

Trump Blames Woodward — A Journalist — For Not Being Presidential Enough To Alert Authorities On COVID

In a sign of his reelection desperation, President Trump on Thursday held his fourth press conference in a week as he continued fielding questions following reports on legendary journalist Bob Woodward’s book, which revealed that Trump purposefully downplayed the COVID-19 pandemic in its early stages. During a press conference at the White House on Thursday, Trump echoed his admission from the day before that he intentionally downplayed the severity of COVID-19 early this year because he is “a...

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...

WH Denies Trump Downplayed COVID-19 Despite Audio Proving He Did

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday vehemently defended President Trump just hours after reports on journalist Bob Woodward’s forthcoming book “Rage” recounted Trump admission that he downplayed the risk of COVID-19 publicly. According to multiple reports on Wednesday, Woodward reported that Trump privately expressed fear over COVID-19 after being warned by national security officials in late January that COVID-19 would be the worst pandemic in a century. However, the Pre...

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. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow asked Cohen, who is currently serving a prison sentence for campaign finance violations and tax fraud, about his allegation, which the disbarred lawyer had first mentioned in his new tell-all book, “Disl...

WH Trolls Pelosi On Salon Appointment Despite Trump’s Disastrous COVID Response

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany kicked off her briefing on Thursday by playing on loop a video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a salon earlier this week in San Francisco, where the Democratic leader flouted COVID-19 restrictions in the city. But the White House doesn’t have a leg to stand on when it comes to policing anyone else’s behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic. From President Trump repeatedly insisting the virus will simply “disappear” to hosting a largely unmasked ...

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...

Fauci Squashes Trump’s Distortion Of CDC’s COVID-19 Death Toll Data

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday threw cold water on President Donald Trump and his allies’ attempt to distort the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) data to misleadingly shrink the COVID-19 death toll. During an interview on “Good Morning America,” Fauci clarified the CDC’s recent report that states 6 percent (approximately 9,000) of the 183,500 COVID-19 deaths were attributed to the coronavirus alone. The infectious disease expert pointed out that the figure simply means COVID-1...

On Sunday, Evers urged Trump in a letter to “reconsider” his upcoming trip to Kenosha on Tuesday. Evers wrote that he is “concerned your presence will only hinder our healing,” which echoes Democrats’ concerns that ...

During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity last week, the self-proclaimed President of “law and order” was asked whether there would be “poll watchers” ensuring all voters were registered. “We’re going to have everything,” Trump told Hannity. “We’re going to have sheriffs, and we’re going to have law enfo...

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...

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