Barring a miracle, there is no way that Trump is going to pass a budget with tax cuts in it. Though it's always good to pray for divine intervention, it's also wise not to press God too hard. By Bob Adelmann
In what seems like the latest episode of The Apprentice but is in fact just another day in the Trump White House, Anthony Scaramucci (nicknamed “The Mooch") has been ousted as communications director after just 10 days in the position. According to Politico, the decision followed a recommendation by new chief of staff John Kelly, who started only on Monday in the role. And while Scaramucci’s exit is no loss to the Republicans or to the voters, he marks the 10th key White House staff member to be removed since Trump took office on January 20, underscoring just how chaotic this administration truly is.
This isn't so much a cleansing of Republican establishment types as it is bringing in heavier artillery to face the enemy.
Senator Lindsey Graham wants legislation to protect the special counsel from termination. But who then will protect us from the special counsel?
In Hays County, Texas, the fluke discovery of one miscounted vote on a ballot item set events in motion leading to the discovery of other uncounted votes, leaving outraged residents clamoring for a voting paper trail.
As Anthony Scaramucci takes his place as White House communications director, be sure that Scaramucci has rightfully earned the title of The Mooch.
CNN seems determined to go out with a fake news bang. Rather than learning from the consequences of the past few weeks and adjusting course, the network continues to pump out more and more (and worse and worse) fake news. Along with other liberal mainstream media, CNN reported Tuesday that President Trump had not one, but two, undisclosed, secret meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the G-20 summit. Those reports were completely bogus.
There are varying degrees of fake news, from spin to outright fabrication. What CNN has been doing for the past few months is an extreme — but far from singular — example of manufacturing “news” out of thin air. People — known for celebrity gossip — is (not for the first time) wading in out of its depth in its upcoming print issue in an apparent attempt to capitalize on the anti-Trump fake news market.
The liberal mainstream media — caught time and again producing fake news — is still flogging the story of Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya last summer. And while playing a rousing game of pin-the-rumor-on-the-Trump, they continue to ignore facts inconvenient to their made-up narrative. Case in point: That Russian lawyer spent years working closely with Democrats.
