Trump Brags About Being Able To Recite 5 Words In Order To Prove Mental Fitness

President Donald Trump wants America to know that he’s extremely mentally stable, and he can prove it in five words: “person, woman, man, camera, TV.” During an interview with Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel on Wednesday, Trump recalled asking then-White House physician Ronny Jackson in 2018 to administer an “acuity” test to help fend off impressions that the President’s cognitive ability was in decline. “The last questions are much more difficult. Like a memory question,” Trump told Sie...

Points For Trying? WH Says Trump’s ‘Intent’ Is To Tell The Truth

In a predictably testy exchange with CNN reporter Jim Acosta Thursday, White House press secretary  Kayleigh McEnany dodged when asked whether President Trump has ever outright “lied” to the American public. “You have pledged in this briefing room to never lie to the American people,” Acosta said. “Are you saying the President has never lied to the public before?” “His intent is to always give truthful information to the American people,” said  McEnany, who added that no one should be fact ch...

WH Punts Again On COVID-19 Economic Package Details Trump Promised

The White House on Tuesday punted again on a promised package to goose the economy amid the COVID-19 epidemic. At a press conference Monday, President Donald Trump promised a proposal by Tuesday.

"Trump's three-track clemency process just might work"

The title of this post is the headline of this new Hill commentary authored by Mark Osler. I recommend the full piece, and here are excerpts: Once upon a time, there was only one way to have the president consider your petition for a pardon (which mitigates the effects of a conviction) or a commutation (which shortens a sentence) — and it was terrible.  That process required that a petition go through seven levels of sequential review, mostly within the Department of Justice.  It was so ineffic...

President Trump appears to have temporarily put his feud with the Washington Post aside during his remarks at the White House a day after the Senate voted to acquit him in the impeachment trial.

Trump Sees A Border Wall And He Wants It Painted Black

President Donald Trump cannot stop micromanaging his border wall, down to the color (black: visually intimidating, hot to the touch in the summer) and the medieval-type spikes he wants mounted on the top. According to the Washington Post, Trump is approaching the wall like one of his Manhattan high-rises — he wants creative control over the design aesthetic, a frustrating ask of the engineers who are building the wall solely for functionality. Trump has also reportedly floated names of his fr...
