Legendary journalist and winner of multiple Pulitzer-prize awards, Bob Woodward, is publishing a new book providing an unflattering inside-look on the Trump White House. Predictably, Trump and his staffers are pushing back, saying the reports in the book are untrue and exaggerated. So who do you believe... the journalist with recorded interviews and documents with nothing to gain by making shit up, or the Trump White House?
Donald Trump and Mike Pence keep talking about "Space Force," a new branch of the U.S. armed services that would be prepared to fight in space. Except despite what you've seen in Avengers, there actually isn't anyone to fight in space. And yet ideas like Medicare for all, free pre-K and less expensive public college are all deemed "too expensive." How can the wealthiest nation in the world waste money on SPACE FORCE but not on getting everyone health insurance?
It's clear to anyone watching the Paul Manafort trial that the former Trump campaign manager is guilty as sin of a litany of financial crimes. He's the epitome of the Swamp Trump wore to drain. But here's my prediction, and it doesn't take much stretch of the imagination; Manafort won't go to prison, because Trump is going to pardon him.
Democrat Stacey Abrams is taking on Republican Brian Kemp for the Georgia governor position, and it has been described as a battle for the soul of Georgia. Abrams, who supports medicaid for all, would be the first female African-American governor, while Kemp, who is white and received an endorsement from Donald Trump, has said he would drive illegal immigrants to the border himself in his pick-up truck.
In what should be about as surprising as the sun rising every morning, it is being reported that CEOs of major companies have used the Trump and GOP created tax cuts to give themselves huge bonuses. Trump's pledge to drain the swamp and be a man of the people, which he may have forgotten in-between golfing every weekend and tweeting like a guilty person about the Russian investigation, seems like one big lie.
While vacationing at his private golf club in New Jersey, Trump took to Twitter to say he may not have enough time during the midterm elections to campaign for Republican candidates. He's vacationing there this entire week.
Maybe it's just me, but if I was being investigated for a crime I know I didn't commit, I would welcome a full investigation. If my name was being run through the mud on a phony "witch hunt," I'd want to be interviewed by investigators and get my name cleared. That's how an innocent person would act.
The GOP nearly lost another special election last night in a district that has been safely-Republican for a generation. Will this be enough to get the Republican lawmakers to finally abandon Trump, or will they stay on a ship that appears to be sinking?
How rich is Donald Trump? So rich that he apparently has never gone to a grocery store. The President of the United States, who appointed the richest cabinet in the history of the country and signed off on a new tax cut for the richest 1%, made a comment this week about requiring an ID to buy groceries. As anyone who has bought groceries knows, you don't need an ID to buy groceries.
Trump, the self-proclaimed champion of the every-man, has never bought his own groceries.
