    For the first time since the 2018-midterm elections, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi met with President Trump at the White House Tuesday. Their meeting was originally supposed to be closed press, but that all changed when the White House press pool was invited into the Oval Office to broadcast their remarks. President Trump started the meeting by thanking Pelosi and Schumer for showing up and made his case for additional border security. "I am proud to shut down the government over border security," Trump said. "I will take the mantle." "They're pouring into our...

    Was Chris Matthews suddenly struck by some semblance of fairness? Or is the Bill Clinton fan, and the man who has described notorious womanizer JFK as a "hero," reluctant to condemn presidents for their peccadilloes? On his Hardball show this evening, Matthews suggested that impeaching a President over sexual misbehavior would be a "witch hunt." Said Matthews, posing the question to Dem Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Chris Matthews: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think you can actually impeach a President for basically covering up sexual misbehavior? I mean, we had this with Clinton....

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    Crisis: Over the weekend the cable news shows were filled with politicians Left and Right pontificating about what special counsel Robert Mueller’s latest filings on Friday regarding President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen really mean. The pontificating went into hyperdrive following the publication of a column by former national security prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, in which he predicted that the president is about to be indicted by the Southern District of New York for “campaign finance violations.” Impeachment! the Democrats screamed. Impeachment! As if they weren’t already considering it, without cause or reason. McCarthy wrote: The major takeaway from...

    What they call "cable news" these days often is a repetitive exercise in speculating that the worst for Donald Trump is always right around the corner. On Monday, the doomsaying ghouls of Morning Joe reveled in Trump's troubles, prematurely dancing on the President's political grave. But not even the prospect of Trump being hounded from office satisfied them. No, they gleefully predicted that even as an ex-President, Donald Trump would be beset with problems "for the rest of his life." [snip] Donny Deutsch then delivered the coup de un-grace, proclaiming that the President's current predicament is: "Just the beginning. This...

    CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program. In the first segment of the show, Stelter was speaking with CNN political analyst and former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein about the similarities between the scandals for former President Richard Nixon and President Donald Trump. “After you...

    WASHINGTON -- Who will speak for President Donald Trump at his state funeral, far in the future though it should be? That must be what the 45th president was thinking as he sat in the front pew at the funeral for former President George H.W. Bush. Bush was eulogized by a man of words, a foreign world leader, a onetime ally in Congress and his eldest son -- Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and Bush biographer Jon Meacham, former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and son and former president George W. Bush. Is there a scribe...

    Espionage: On Wednesday, news broke that Canadian authorities had arrested Meng Wanzhou, 46, the chief financial officer of mega-Chinese telecom Huawei, the largest in the world, as she was changing planes in Vancouver. As Fox Business reported, authorities picked her up “as part of a U.S. investigation into an alleged scheme by Huawei to use the global banking system to avoid American sanctions against Iran.” Meng, other reports noted, is the chief financial officer for the company, so on the surface at least, it makes sense that she would be targeted by authorities. Subsequent reporting noted that Weng was detained...

    The liberal networks have figured out a sure-fire formula for guaranteed, Grade-A, Trump-bashing. Invite on a hyper-partisan former US attorney appointed by President Obama, and let them unload. Yesterday, we noted Barbara McQuade on MSNBC, suggesting that President Trump be stripped of [depending on how you interpreted McQuade's remarks] either his presidency, or his US citizenship. Not to be outdone, CNN's New Day on Sunday morning invited on Michael Moore, another former Obama US attorney appointee, and a former Democrat state senator in Georgia. Moore might even have outbid McQuade when it came to making over-the-top suggestions about President Trump....

    Michael Avenatti, the attorney suing President Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen on behalf of adult film actress Stormy Daniels, pushed Saturday for federal prosecutors to break precedent by filing criminal charges against the president over related campaign finance law violations. “.realDonaldTrump should be indicted for committing the two felonies designed to get him elected. Now. No court has ever ruled that the POTUS cannot be indicted and there is nothing in the constitution that states as much,” Mr. Avenatti wrote on Twitter. Mr. Avenatti suggestion came on the heels of prosecutors in the Southern District of New York...

    It's a commonplace for President Trump's antagonists to suggest that he be impeached, or prosecuted for crimes. So if a Trump hater wants to make headlines, she's going to have to come up with an ingenious new way in which the president can be punished. Let us, accordingly, give Barbara McQuade credit. She's dreamed up a diabolical new device to make the President a pariah: strip him of his U.S. citizenship! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    One of the most comforting talking points in politics is to claim that your political opponents are irrationally obsessed. I'm sure this is as old as time, but I first noticed it in the late 1990s. Many of Bill Clinton's most ardent supporters responded to every new criticism by claiming the president's enemies were twisted by hate for the man. During the George W. Bush administration, thanks in part to a phrase coined by my late friend Charles Krauthammer, conservatives deflected criticism of the president by claiming his foes suffered from "Bush derangement syndrome." The term caught on, and Obama...

    President Trump’s picks for attorney general and U.N. ambassador have run into immediate opposition from Democrats -- suggesting both nominees could face tough confirmation hearings. Trump announced Friday morning that he plans to nominate William Barr, the George H.W. Bush-era leader of the Justice Department, as his next attorney general to replace former AG Jeff Sessions. Fox News is told Trump liked the respect Barr commands and the fact that he has earned bipartisan support in the past. If confirmed, he would replace Matthew Whitaker, the former Sessions chief of staff who took over as acting attorney general last month....

    In November 2016, when then-President-elect Trump was assembling his cabinet, we noted Mika Brzezinski trying to derail President Trump's possible pick of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State by hinting that Rudy had been "drinking a lot" during a meeting with Trump. Mika was back at her not-so-subtle intimations about Rudy's imbibing on today's Morning Joe. Commenting on what could be seen as criticisms of the President that Giuliani had made in an interview with The Atlantic, Mika twice wondered out loud about "what time" Giuliani had made his comments. As an explanation of Rudy's candid tone, Mika twice suggested...

    President Trump marked Hanukkah Thursday evening at a White House reception that included eight survivors of the Holocaust. In an East Room event, Mr. Trump recalled the fatal mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in October, calling it a “sinister anti-Semitic attack.” “In the aftermath of that wicked assault, we reaffirmed our solemn duty to confront anti-Semitism everywhere it occurs,” the president said. “We must stamp out this vile hatred from the world.” The president then introduced eight Holocaust survivors, calling the era “history’s darkest hour.” He told the survivors that they inspire the world with their courage,...

    Trump and first lady Melania Trump took their place in the front row at President George H. W. Bush's funeral at National Cathedral yesterday morning, right next to the Obamas. It was a bit awkward considering the past war of words between the two couples. Trump has accused Obama of authoring some of the worst deals the U.S. has ever signed and is currently upending his predecessor's legacy, while Obama has sounded off on Trump's policies. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama wrote some unflattering things about 45 in her new book, including how she'll never forgive him for his role in...

    God rest the soul of George H.W. Bush. But God forbid that President Trump should receive credit for according H.W. all possible honors and conducting himself with grace during the funeral service. That latter, ungracious, thought was on John Avlon's mind this morning. The CNN commentator, on New Day, reacted to a statement by former Bush 43 aide Scott Jennings, praising President Trump's handling of the passing of H.W. Sneered Avlon: "I don't think you want to give out too many medals for not screwing up a presidential funeral. The President was on best behavior this week, but that's a...
