    Fired FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before Congress on Monday to talk about his handling of the Clinton email investigation, and his fired deputy, Andrew McCabe, asserted his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination, Sen. Charles E. Grassley said. Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch also declined to show up for a major hearing where the Senate Judiciary Committee was looking into the inspector general’s report detailing major bungles in Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation. Mr. Comey’s lawyer said he was out of the country — though Mr. Grassley, committee chairman, said he saw Mr. Comey was in...

    A Gallup Poll released Monday showed President Trump earning his highest approval rating since shortly after he took office, even as his administration faces growing criticism over its immigration policies. The Gallup Poll found 45 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance as of Sunday, while 50 percent disapprove. The approval number matches Trump’s highest to date from Gallup. He previously received the same rating for the week ending on Jan. 29, 2017. Trump’s current approval rating rose 3 percentage points since June 10. ETC...
  • Tom Arnold Rants That 'Trump Is a Russian Asset'; Gives No Evidence

    "Don't worry. Tom Arnold is on it and I'm Tom Arnold." That was Tom Arnold promoting his upcoming television show, The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold. However the only thing Arnold seemed to be on during his Wednesday interview on the Daily Wire's Michael Knowles Show podcast was a variety of stimulants judging from his unhinged rants about President Trump being a "Russian asset" backed up by nothing since he was unable to provide any evidence for his wild claim.
  • Michelle Wolf: ‘Trump Doesn’t Want to Be Allies With Anyone Who’s Good-Looking’

    Michelle Wolf thinks Donald Trump might be picking allies for the United States based on whether their leaders overshadow him with their attractiveness. On her Netflix show “The Break With Michelle Wolf,” the comedian joked that Trump’s recent foreign policy moves are pretty confusing. Trump insulted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Twitter after a chilly G7 summit, in which longtime U.S. allies were frustrated with Trump over actions like trade tariffs and frequent demands to allow Russia back into the group. Right after that, Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Singapore, where he said Kim...
  • Scarborough: Trump Admin Marching Children to Showers “Like the Nazis”

    Want to accuse the Trump admin of being a bunch of Nazis? All you need is a tweet by a Boston Globe reporter passing along what “a public defender in McAllen [TX] says.” On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said: “I know that children are being marched away to showers . . . being told they are, just like the Nazis said they were taking people to showers and then they never came back.” Scarborough was referring to the handling of children brought into the country by people accused of illegal immigration. So, how does Scarborough “know” that children are...

    Germany has responded to US President Donald Trump’s egotistic policy of ’America First’ by calling on the European Union to “bundle its strength” and show more courage — continuing the more bellicose German rhetoric that followed the US decision last week to withdraw from a G7 statement. “Under President Trump, the Atlantic has got wider,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Wednesday, standing at a podium emblazoned with the hashtag #EuropeUnited. “Where the US administration overtly calls our values and interests into question, we certainly need to take a more robust stance.” During the speech, delivered to a room...

    On Sunday night, Melania Trump spoke at the Ford Theatre’s annual gala, where she served as honorary chairperson. It was her first major public appearance after her lengthy, and still unexplained, disappearance from the public eye this past month. The strangeness of this saga reminds us just how much the workings of this administration resemble classic Hollywood thrillers such as Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes and Rebecca or George Cukor’s Gaslight—all mystery stories surrounding a dead or missing woman, and the desperate anxiety, even near-madness, experienced by another woman trying to solve the mystery, as she grapples with physical danger as...

    CNN's Jake Tapper on Tuesday weighed in on the Trump-Kim summit arguing that other presidents did not meet with North Korean leaders to avoid giving their dictatorships “prestige.” “It's not as if other presidents couldn't have done this,” Tapper said of Trump's historic meeting with the North Korean leader. “It's that they didn't want to.” Tapper, the host of CNN shows “The Lead” and “State of the Union,” prefaced his comments that past presidents decided not to meet for direct talks with North Korea because “the concern was, you don't want to give North Korea that kind of prestige.” “You...

    SINGAPORE (Reuters) - In their first moments of meeting each other, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un both sought to project a sense of command but displayed some anxiety at the start of their high-stakes summit in Singapore. Body language experts said that in the 13 seconds or so the U.S. president held on to the hand of Kim for the first time, he projected his usual dominance by reaching out first, and patting the North Korean leader's shoulder. Not to be outdone, Kim firmly pumped Trump's hand, looking him straight in the eye for...

    Donald Trump looks and talks like a person who is mentally ill, says CNBC correspondent John Harwood, and others at the network are also questioning the president’s sanity, Mediaite is reporting. Trump’s behavior at the G7 summit, during which he’s railed against “unfair” trade practices with America’s closest allies, suggested allowing Russia back into the fold, threatening retaliatory tariffs, and criticized presidents going back to the Eisenhower administration, has been described as “harsh” even by Fox News. But for Harwood and his CNBC colleagues, it’s more concerning than that. Speaking to MSNBC’s AM Joy on Saturday, Harwood brought up Trump’s...

    Full title - ‘Con-Artist Son of a B-tch’ – UNHINGED ROBERT DeNIRO Blasts Trump in Profane-Laced Speech to High School Students Robert DeNiro used an awards ceremony speech for high school students this week to go on a profane rant about President Trump, even comparing the president to Nazi leader Adolph Hitler. Trump and Republicans in Congress have a problem telling the “truth,” DeNiro warned while addressing student recipients of the Rosemary Breslin American Writer Award in New York. “What does the truth even mean today? I mean, if you’re Donald Trump it doesn’t mean anything. If you’re cowardly Republican...

    Trump Derangement Syndrome is a very real affliction that plagues many in the liberal media and many in the anti-Trump crowd. During an appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday, David Frum, a faux Republican and editor for the left-leaning Atlantic, showed off how advanced his TDS was when he decried President Trump ahead of the historic North Korea summit as a cruel “punishment” against the American people for being irresponsible and hating the news media. CNN host Brian Stelter originally asked Frum to comment on President Trump’s criticism of CNN while at the press conference at the G7 summit...

    Remember that scene in The Blues Brothers where John Belushi’s ex-fiancee is about to shoot him for jilting her at the altar? Belushi reels off a string of transparently phony excuses, ultimately screaming “it wasn’t my fault!” On her MSNBC show today, a desperate Joy Reid gave a mirror-image imitation of Belushi’s spiel. Instead of trying to deflect blame, Reid did her best to deny credit to President Trump should his summit with Kim Jong Un be a success. Reid came up with three theories: 1. The real credit goes to South Korean President Moon Jae-in. 2. Don’t praise Trump...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace on Thursday questioned whether first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump are “dead inside” during a discussion about what her panel called President Trump’s “misogynistic views.” The comments come after Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said earlier this week that he does not “respect” Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star who is suing Trump to void a nondisclosure agreement about their alleged affair, because of her profession. "I respect women — beautiful women and women with value — but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation, I don't respect," Giuliani said. The MSNBC panel,...

    Shock! Horror! President Trump is actually doing something right. Sadly, Democrats in Congress are responding in a quite Trumpian way: They seem more concerned with undermining him than supporting a peace process with North Korea. They are on the same side as National Security Adviser John Bolton, quietly subverting attempts to pursue peace. While international security is complicated, here’s a rule of thumb: When you find yourself on the same side as Bolton, go back and re-examine your position. Sure, we all wish that Trump treated Justin Trudeau or Angela Merkel with the respect that he now shows Kim Jong-un....

    OTTAWA (Reuters) - Leaders of the Group of Seven rich nations headed for a summit in Canada on Thursday more divided than at any time in the group’s 42-year history, as U.S. President Donald Trump’s “America First” policies risk causing a global trade war and deep diplomatic schisms. In a bid to rebuild America’s industry, Trump has imposed hefty tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, including those from key G7 allies like Canada, Japan and the European Union. He has threatened to use national security laws to do the same for foreign car imports and has walked back on environmental...
