    The Trumps embarked on a family getaway to Mar-a-Lago on Jan. 17, and they were pictured striding side-by-side towards Marine One. That gave a clear picture of just how tall Barron is compared to his dad, Donald! Barron Trump, 13, is not just taller than his dad Donald, 73 — he’s almost a head taller! This was apparent in a photo of Barron strolling besides his parents Donald and Melania Trump, 49, as they made their way across The White House’s South Lawn to board Marine One on Jan. 17. While the trio was en route for a weekend of...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Sunday that the Senate’s impeachment trial could last as long as eight weeks if the chamber elects to hear from witnesses. “I think it’s certainly possible that this trial could last one to two weeks, on the other hand if the Senate makes the decision to go down the road of additional witnesses that could extend it to six to eight weeks or even longer,” Cruz told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
  • Impeachment manager claims Trump attempted bribery, dodges when asked why it was not charge

    Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., one of the seven Democratic impeachment managers prosecuting President Trump before the Senate, accused Trump of attempting to commit bribery in his dealings with Ukraine, but when asked why this was not one of the articles of impeachment, he did not appear to have an explanation. Bribery is one of the specific offenses mentioned in the Constitution’s discussion of impeachment. The House impeached Trump for alleged abuse of power -- itself is not a statutory crime – and obstruction of Congress, but Crow insisted Sunday that the president was still guilty of attempted bribery. “Yeah, specifically...

    Chesley Sullenberger, the pilot who performed the “Miracle on the Hudson”, has told Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump to “grow up” and “show some decency”, after she mocked Joe Biden for stuttering. Biden, a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination to face President Trump in November, has spoken openly about his lifelong experiences with a stutter. Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s second son Eric, works for the Trump re-election campaign and spoke in that capacity at an event in Iowa on Friday, the day after the seventh Democratic debate. “I feel kind of sad for Biden,” she said....

    Alleging that “racists” are not entitled to elect members of our government, Terry Smith, visiting professor at the University of Baltimore School of Law, says “ballots cast for racist candidates like Trump can be thrown out by the courts. We don’t allow racism to deny a person a job or a place to live. We shouldn’t allow racism to have a voice in deciding who will govern.” Smith brushed aside the difficulty of proving a ballot was cast with racist intention by pointing out that “there is wide agreement across the spectrum of media covering politics that Trump and, indeed,...

    WASHINGTON—When revelations about President Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine first started dribbling into the public in late September and early October, Republicans were caught off guard. Some members of the GOP criticized Mr. Trump’s request for Ukraine to open investigations that benefited him politically, while others sought to avoid the topic altogether. As many as 20 House Republicans initially were open to supporting Mr. Trump’s impeachment, according to Rep. Pete King (R., N.Y.), a retiring member from a competitive district who quickly made up his mind that Mr. Trump’s conduct wasn’t impeachable.

    My wife Mary and I spent a wonderful weekend in California with fellow Trump supporters filming the music video for my Trump Train 2020 song. We boarded our flight back home to the East Coast on Sunday at 8 P.M., arriving at BWI airport in Maryland on Monday at 10:30 am. We were exhausted. The taxi driver taking us to our car was listening to NPR. A radio show host and his caller were lying about Trump, venomously declaring him a serial liar. Perhaps it was because I was so tired that I had zero tolerance. I spouted, “Those guys...

    It’s equal time for doggies day.What do you suppose makes this little Jack Russell Terrier pup so appealing?Is it the stocky little body? The swagger? The authoritative stance? The self-assurance that his presence just exudes?Is it the set of those almond-shaped eyes? Or perhaps his unusual coloration: the white spot on his nose, the black eye, the black smudge above that determined little mouth?Or wait, maybe it’s the tail, held high and proud? You can tell this little guy knows where he’s going and means to get there.  Yes, I think it’s definitely the FU tail. Alpha-dog, for sure; who...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr has said that President Donald Trump 'discredited the American experiment' in an interview published Friday. 'I think the problem is, number one, he is a bully. And you know, I don't like bullies. And I don't think ... that that's part of America's tradition,' Kennedy Jr said in an interview with Yahoo Finance. 'I think, in many ways, he's discredited the American experiment with self-governance,' added Kennedy Jr, an anti-vaccination activist who is the nephew of former president John F. Kennedy and son of his attorney general, Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy Jr went on to lament...

    Facebook has blamed a technical error for Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s name appearing as “Mr Shithole” in posts on its platform when translated into English from Burmese, apologising for any offence caused and saying the problem had been fixed. The error came to light on the second day of a visit by the president to Myanmar, where Xi and state counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi signed dozens of agreements covering massive Beijing-backed infrastructure plans.

    If this stat is accurate -- and I have no reason to doubt it -- President Trump has far more cross-party appeal than the Media Cartel would have us believe. Oh, and, if true, he's clearly the odds on favorite to win the 2020 election... in an electoral college landslide.Earlier this week, Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale shared some statistics from Trump's campaign rally in Wisconsin on Tuesday. They are absolutely staggering. According to Pascale, 57.9% of the 20,395 voters in attendance were either registered Democrats or Independents. Excellent data from Milwaukee: ? 20,395 Voters Identified ? 15,738 Voters...

    ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Saturday the Oval Office requires a wartime veteran, a niche he occupies exclusively among top-tier candidates in his party’s race for the 2020 nomination. During an interview on Iowa PBS in suburban Des Moines, Buttigieg was asked if there’s value in a president who had faced hostile fire. Buttigieg, a Naval intelligence officer in Afghanistan in 2014, noted he had been present for rocket attacks while stationed at Bagram Airfield, and later faced potential danger as an armed driver in Kabul. Another presidential candidate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, served...

    President Donald Trump took aim at Virginia Democrats and their push to stiffen the state's gun laws, saying that the U.S. Constitution was under attack just as thousands of armed militia members began arriving in Richmond for a Monday gun rally. Trump doubled down with his support of gun enthusiasts in the state, which Hilary Clinton won in 2016 and where Democrats took full control of the state legislature for the first time in a generation in November, as candidates made passing stronger gun control laws a central campaign theme. "Your 2nd Amendment is under very serious attack in the...

    The fact that unemployment is at a 50-year low and the wages of employees have increased faster than the salaries of their bosses under the economic policies of the Trump Administration was roundly condemned by leading Democrats. “The working class has been a prime constituency of the Democratic Party for generations,” presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass) said. “The initiation of economic policies that have generated raises for private sector employees are an encroachment on this long-standing relationship. There is no emotional bond between Republicans and the working class. They’re just appealing to selfishness in an underhanded bid to sever...

    President Trump's legal team on Saturday issued a full-throttled defense to the articles of impeachment, refuting the substance and process of the charges while accusing House Democrats of engaging in a "dangerous attack" on the right of the American people to freely choose their president. "This is a brazen and unlawful attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election and interfere with the 2020 election now just months away," said a source close to the president's legal team, reading from the expected legal filing. The legal paperwork is the first formal response to the two articles of impeachment read...

    Not much seemed solemn or prayerful about Nancy Pelosi's appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" on Friday night. In Maher's return from a holiday hiatus, the House speaker spoke gleefully about her colleagues impeaching President Trump and doubled down on her Russian-charged attacks against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. After Maher pointed out that Pelosi was initially "rather reluctant" to move forward with impeachment and waited until "it was inevitable," the California Democrat responded that Trump simply gave his critics in the House "no choice" in the matter. "The president was self-impeaching almost every single day," Pelosi said. "There...
