Trump Calls Biden VP Pick Kamala Harris ‘A Dangerous Choice’

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s selection of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his vice presidential pick was “a dangerous choice.”  “A lot of people think it’s a dangerous choice,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday night. “I think she is the most liberal person, supposedly, in the Senate.”  At a White House news conference shortly after Biden revealed his decision, Trump suggested that Harris had been his “number one draft...

AZ Senator Implies Voters In DC And Puerto Rico Don’t Deserve Full Congressional Representation

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally (R) said Tuesday that if Democrats managed to gain control of the White House, the Senate and the House in November, the party would legislate statehood to both Puerto Rico and D.C. — a move that she said would be disastrous for Republicans.  “They’re going to make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state and get four new Democrat Senators,” McSally told NBC News in an interview Tuesday. “We’d never get the Senate back again.” Some have criticized McSally’s remarks as an imp...

President Donald Trump abruptly ended a news conference Saturday when he was pressed by a reporter regarding his false claim that he was the first to sign the Veterans Choice bill into law, a feat that he said “no president has ever been able to do.” “I’ve just signed two bills that are great for our vets, our vets are very special,” Trump announced during a news conference in Bedminster, New Jersey — his second in just two days. “We passed Veterans Choice, as you know, and Veterans Accountab...

Trump Calls Lawsuit To Dissolve NRA ‘A Very Terrible Thing’

President Donald Trump on Thursday called a lawsuit that seeks to dissolve the National Rifle Association filed earlier in the day “ a very terrible thing.” As he was leaving the White House en route to Ohio, Trump responded to a reporter question regarding a lawsuit filed in state court by New York Attorney General Tish James against the NRA, saying that the state’s legal efforts against the NRA have “absolutely decimated” the gun advocacy group with its costs. “It’s very sad,” Trump said. ...

Facebook just took down a Trump post that claimed kids are immune to COVID-19

Facebook took down a video President Trump posted to his account Wednesday, citing its rules against false claims about the coronavirus. The decision to remove the video signals a new direction for Facebook, which has been taking incremental steps recently to distance itself from the perception that the company deliberately turns a blind eye to the president’s potentially harmful behavior. The video in question was a clip from a Fox News segment from Wednesday morning in which the president make...

Susan Rice Highlights Past Virus Response Efforts As She Vies For VP Slot

Former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice challenged those who have suggested she isn’t a qualified pick for vice president, saying Tuesday that her career has been dedicated to public service over personal political ambition. “It’s not about one’s own profile,” Rice told CBS when asked about the role of a vice president, adding that while some have suggested she lacks the experience of running for political office, she is proud of a career dedicated to serving others. “I don’t h...

The AXIOS on HBO interview with President Trump.

I think interruptions are important and wouldn't like an interviewer who let Trump filibuster, but the continual agitation along with the interruption feels hopelessly aggressive. You could tell from the first couple minutes that this guy, Jonathan Swan, thought he had a killer idea: Trump believes in the power of positive thinking and that's not the right approach for governing duri...

Stephen Miller Falsely Claims Voter Identity Is Not Confirmed For Mail-In Ballots

White House senior adviser Stephen Miller spewed some mistruths Friday, calling mail-in ballots a “catastrophic problem” as he tried to justify fresh attempts by President Donald Trump to sow doubt about the legitimacy of an election that polls have consistently shown does not favor him.  “The President brought attention to catastrophic problem of universal mail-in ballots,” Miller told “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning. “Nobody who mails in a ballot has their identity confirmed, nobody ch...
