Trump And Allies Gleefully Seize Upon Mueller’s Denial Of BuzzFeed Reporting

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a man whose reputation and investigation President Donald Trump has been trashing for months, suddenly gained newfound credibility in the President’s eyes when he issued a vague denial of the Buzzfeed News bombshell report on Trump telling Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. Trump and his allies seized on the statement as “proof” that the report was made up to smear the President and his administration. Remember it was Buzzfeed that released the totally discredi...

Trump, North Korea's Kim to hold second summit in late February

The announcement came amid a diplomatic flurry in Washington surrounding the visit of Kim Yong Chol, a hardline former spy chief, and marked a sign of movement in a denuclearization effort that has stalled since a landmark meeting between Trump and the North Korean leader in Singapore on June 12. "President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong Chol for an hour and a half to discuss denuclearization and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February," White House spokeswoman Sarah ...

You Asked, We Answered: Here's How Nancy Pelosi Could Become President

Impeachment talks grew louder on Thursday night after BuzzFeed News reported that President Donald J. Trump instructed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about his involvement in a project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow and the timeline of the negotiations with Russia.Naturally, the possibility of impeaching Trump and kicking him out of office sent #TheResistance into a frenzy. (Trump's attorneys denied all these allegations, by the way.) The natural progression for...

Embattled By Anti-Semitism Claims, The Women’s March Forges On

The day after Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, Hadas Alterman found herself surrounded by nearly 60,000 people in downtown Oakland. The 29-year-old attorney from California has attended her fair share of civil rights demonstrations, but said that she had never experienced anything like the 2017 Women’s March.“It can be scary to protest in Oakland because often there’s a high, very aggressive police presence. But the atmosphere at the Women’s March in O...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 2

  I never set out to be an opinion columnist. It’s true. Hell, before 2008, if you’d told me I’d become a professional blogger, much less do the job for nearly 9 years, I’d have taken you for a crazy person. But everything realigned 10 years ago, in the eye-teeth of The Great Recession, and frankly, I don’t think the world has been the same since. It’s funny, reading the papers, following the discussions about whether the 10 year bull market has finally turned bear. Will the stock market’s tumbl...

Trump’s Companies Boosted Foreign Worker Visas To 10-Year High In 2018

President Trump may have ratcheted up his anti-immigration efforts in recent months, but his family companies appear to be using foreign workers at a higher rate than ever before. The Trump Organization requested and received at least 192 visas for foreign workers in 2018, according to Department of Labor data. That number appears to be the highest for the company going back to at least 2008 and likely much earlier, based on public records. The nearly two decades’ worth of data were pulled to...

Trump Touts 77 ‘Major’ Walls Around The World: ‘Close To 100 Percent Successful’

In a tweet on Wednesday morning, President Trump pointed to the success of other countries’ border walls to propel his hardline immigration stance that’s kept the U.S. in a partial government shutdown for 26 days. It appears he’s citing statistics from a USA Today story about the uptick in border wall construction since 9-11. There are now 77 major or significant Walls built around the world, with 45 countries planning or building Walls. Over 800 miles of Walls have been built in Europe sinc...

Trump Humble Brags About Buying ‘Over 1,000 Hamberders’ (Hamburgers) For Team

Make Fast Food Great Again. Due to the government shutdown he created, our supposed-billionaire president was forced to spend his own big bucks providing dinner for the Clemson Tigers basketball team during their visit to the White House on Monday evening. So, President Trump scrounged up one of his favorite meals: he bought over 1,000 fast food burgers for the team.

Trump Says ‘Rank And File’ FBI Members Are ‘Disgusted’ With Leaders

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the “rank and file” members of the FBI are “disgusted” with leaders like “Lyin’ James Comey.” The rank and file of the FBI are great people who are disgusted with what they are learning about Lyin’ James Comey and the so-called “leaders” of the FBI. Twelve have been fired or forced to leave. They got caught spying on my campaign and then called it an investigation. Bad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2019 [Author: Kate Riga]

"'Well, well, well,' went the general line in the Russian media, 'look what we have here.'"

I guess that's a pretty rough translation, printed in "Fake News as ‘Moral Imperative’? Democrats’ Alabama Move Hints at Ugly 2020" by Jim Rutenberg in the NYT.  The Russian media, we're told, "were downright gleeful over new reports that a group of Democrats had used online disinformation in the campaign against Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama in 2017."Their reaction was understandable, given the news that American political operatives had tried the same kind of troll ...

Trump Claims National Enquirer Reporting ‘Far More Accurate’ Than WaPo

After calling Amazon owner Jeff Bezos’s impending divorce a “beauty” last week, President Trump switched his tone on Sunday night by propping up the National Enquirer’s coverage of Bezos’ divorce and suggesting that the tabloid’s reporting was “far more accurate” than the Washington Post, which Bezos owns. So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Wash...
