    Trump responded, "I didn't know that she was nasty. I hope she is OK. ..." He seemed to bury the hatchet saying, "I am sure she will go excellently (as a royal). She will be very good."

    President Trump’s enemies are providing yet another disturbing glimpse of the veritable fake news factory into which the mainstream media has morphed.Late last week, Ian Bremmer, one of the most well-known foreign policy experts in America, tweeted a made-up quote from President Trump without offering any indication that the statement was fictitious. “President Trump in Tokyo: ‘Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden,'” Bremmer wrote, providing no further context.Predictably, the fake news twitterverse took the quote at face-value. Journalists and lawmakers alike went on to share Bremmer’s tweet, blasting President Trump for...

    CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was accused of being dishonest over a tweet he sent while covering President Trump's immigration overhaul remarks. In a speech given at the Rose Garden, President Trump detailed what he hoped would be included in a massive reform, including using a merit-based system for new migrants and ending the visa lottery. Acosta opined from his account about a remark the president made about asylum seekers, accusing him of painting with a "broad brush."

    Teen who taunted Native American man at march defends his actions The MAGA hat-wearing teen who went viral over the weekend — after he was caught on camera smiling and staring down an elderly Native American war vet at the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington — has come forward to defend his actions. “I am providing this factual account of what happened on Friday afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial to correct misinformation and outright lies being spread about my family and me,” explained Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in northern Kentucky.

    CNN guest and radio host Ben Ferguson said Friday that BuzzFeed News “got their brains kicked in” by the Special Counsel’s office over their disputed report on President Donald Trump. BuzzFeed News reported on Thursday night that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen told Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors that the president had directed him to lie about a potential Trump Tower deal in Moscow during the 2016 election. (RELATED: Mueller’s Office Disputes BuzzFeed’s Report) Mueller’s office issued a rare statement disputing BuzzFeed’s reporting on Friday: “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and...

    The Justice Department’s inspector general says a senior FBI official accepted two tickets to a sports event from a television news correspondent who regularly covered the bureau. The watchdog office said the official had not paid for the tickets. Initially, under oath, the official claimed to have done so, the watchdog said. The episode was briefly mentioned in a much broader report from last June about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. …

    Stoneman Douglas survivor Emma Gonzalez said on Sunday that she has no choice but to advocate for stricter gun control laws. "I have no choice because there were CNN cameras there, and my speech was broadcast all over the country in like four seconds and I had no ideas they were going to be there, and that's..like I'm not upset about that..I'm never going to be the same person again," Gonzalez told "60 Minutes" on CBS.

    CNN recently hosted an anti-gun town hall featuring a number of grieving children and parents from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who aimed their ire at the National Rifle Association, politicians peripherally associated with the NRA and anyone who didn't say exactly what they wanted to hear. It was an event where a student could compare Sen. Marco Rubio to a mass murderer and question whether NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch truly cares about her children without ever being challenged. I hope CNN got the rating it was looking for, because it's almost guaranteed that NRA membership and gun...

    Recently a Senator, whom many refer to by his nickname Dirty Durbin, said that President Trump referred to certain countries with a less-than-rosy word while objecting to the Temporary Protected Status of immigrants from those countries. President Trump reportedly also noted that increasing immigration from countries of European heritage, like Norway, which has been a source of productive immigrants to North America for over 1100 years, would be good. While President Trump was referring to the way that TPS countries are managed, and not impugning rank-and-file citizens of good character in those countries, the matter does raise two questions. The...

    When truck driver Chris Gromek wants to know what’s really going on in Washington, he scans the internet and satellite radio. He no longer flips TV channels because networks such as Fox News and MSNBC deliver conflicting accounts tainted by politics, he says. “Where is the truth?” asks the 47-year-old North Carolina resident. Answering that question accurately is a cornerstone of any functioning democracy, according to none other than Thomas Jefferson. But a year into Donald Trump’s fact-bending, media-bashing presidency, Americans are increasingly confused about who can be trusted to tell them reliably what their government and their commander in...

    When it comes to dealing with the mainstream media, President Donald Trump pulls no punches. During his first press conference as President-elect, Trump told the press in no uncertain terms: "You are fake news." This was music to the ears, figuratively speaking, for many of his supporters. Now, with the launch of our latest parody song, it can be music to their ears literally as well. Introducing "Fake News Remix - Donald Trump vs. The Mainstream Media," a satirical song/video highlighting President Trump's dressing down of the dishonest press. With vocals performed by Donald Trump himself, and guest starring prominent...

    To judge by the unfiltered contents of President Trump’s psyche as expressed through his Twitter feed, there is nothing he cares about more as president of the United States — not health care, not regulation, not taxes, not trade — than his ongoing battles with the news media. And whenever he says or tweets something more appalling than the last thing he said or tweeted, what ensues is a regular and repeated pattern that goes like this: Trump tweets something despicable.Elected Republicans say, “I don’t approve of this.”White House spokespeople offer laughably pathetic defenses of his behavior.Journalists and commentators point...

Only problem? Both Trump administration officials and those close to Senate GOP leadership say it’s simply...

    It was the biggest, juiciest story of the week, complete with everything that the mainstream media loves to latch onto. “Trump budget kills Meals on Wheels program!” New jobs would soon be coming available for people willing to push handcarts through towns and cities across the nation, collecting the bodies of starving senior citizens who had fallen victim to the Trump presidency. Heck, I even fell for it myself. After seeing it blasted across social media by so many news outlets it was easy to do. Then came the much less widely reported wrinkle to the story: it wasn’t true....
