  • If Sarah Sanders Were to Smack the Press

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is constantly hammered by "Gotcha!" questions from reporters in the briefing room. This was dramatically underlined when the story broke about former White House staff secretary Rob Porter being accused of domestic violence by two ex-wives, one of whom even brandished a picture with a black eye. By the time it was over, Sanders had one, too. It didn't look good, and nothing Sanders said from the lectern was going to be good enough. The same outlets that couldn't muster more than one question regarding former President Bill Clinton's alleged rape of Juanita...

  • Obama Portrait Artist Likes to Paint African-American Women Holding Heads of Decapitated White Women

    Can you imagine if Donald Trump’s official portrait artist painted white women holding the decapitated heads of African-American women? There would be social chaos. But as Americans we are supposed to sit back and applaud Obama’s artist for chopping off the heads of white women to be carried like a trophy by African-American women? Was this artist, Kehinde Wiley, paid with public tax monies to paint Obama’s portrait?

    White House staff secretary Rob Porter resigned Tuesday after two of his ex-wives came forward accusing him of abuse while they were married to him. Porter called the allegations “simply false” before thanking the president for the opportunity to serve in the White House and announcing he would be leaving, reports Axios. “These outrageous allegations are simply false. I took the photos given to the media nearly 15 years ago and the reality behind them is nowhere close to what is being described. I have been transparent and truthful about these vile claims, but I will not further engage publicly...

    I suppose this was inevitable because it’s 2018 and everything has to be terrible. It looks as if the Philadelphia Eagles playbook has been expanded to include more than screen passes and flea flickers.Step 1: Win Super Bowl for first time in franchise history. Step 2: Watch as fans set fire to city, loot department stores and tear down street lights. Step 3: Turn victory into political statement so some players can be part of the #RESIST movement.Time Magazine reports that a number of players didn’t waste any time on celebrating or planning for the next season before they...

    Two sources directly involved in the process say the GOP-authored House Intelligence Committee memo will not be released Thursday. The plan now is for the White House to return the memo – with redactions approved in consultation with the FBI – to the Intelligence Committee Friday.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee is objecting to the memo's release, claiming Wednesday there were "material changes" made to the memo after the committee voted on...

    The White House made good on plans to reopen its online petition site by the end of January, relaunching the platform minutes before midnight Wednesday. Many doubted the administration would stick to quick turnaround plans for the site, which was taken offline “for maintenance” in December as part of a vendor change projected to save $1.3 million annually. The petition platform — hosted at — relaunched under its original name, “We the People,” with all 17 Trump-era petitions that cleared a 100,000-signature threshold for an official response restored.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Chris Long did not visit the White House after winning the Super Bowl with the Patriots last year and he would do the same exact thing again this year. The Eagles’ defensive lineman is now playing against the Patriots in Super Bowl LII and joined Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said. “Are you kidding me?” Long, 32, signed a two-year deal with the Eagles this offseason, and has been well worth it. In the NFC Title game, Long was a beast and he even retweeted a...

"The world is witnessing the resurgence of a strong and prosperous America," Trump said. "America is open for business and we are competitive once again."

    Reflections on Presidents and the Presidency, on Inauguration Day President George Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789, but not by choice. He had been in town, ready to take office, for weeks already… but the newly-elected Congress took their time arriving, as the president, anxious to get started, had to cool his heels. They needed a quorum, to ratify the results of the electors, and to put together a republican response to the monarchial tradition of the formal coronation – with all its pomp and circumstance – to which the rest of the world was accustomed. But as much...

    The White House's public comment telephone line isn't accepting calls amid the ongoing government shutdown, and its recently updated recorded message blames it on Democrats. Upon calling the comment line Sunday morning at (202) 456-1111, a woman's voice reads the following message: "Thank you for calling the White House. Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because congressional Democrats are holding government funding, including funding for our troops and other national security priorities, hostage to an unrelated immigration debate," she says. "Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down," she continues. "In the meantime, you can leave a comment...

    CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta has a history of rude journalistic behavior and disrespect that has never before been allowed in the White House. Today during an oval office meeting between President Trump and President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan the CNN journalist exhibited a level of disrespectful behavior that should lead to his White House press credentials being revoked permanently.
