Donald Trump Just Praised Mike Pompeo for Bullying and Swearing at an NPR Reporter – ‘Be Best’

0

Following a morning of media bashing on Twitter, Donald Trump praised his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, for his confrontation with NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly in which the nation’s top diplomat berated the reporter in private following a contentious interview.

Because there is nothing Trump loves more than a big ol’ bully!

Trump’s remark came during a news conference announcing his Middle East peace proposal, which has already been rejected by the Palestinian leadership.

During the event, Trump praised Pompeo for his work on the plan and then shouted out his confrontation with the NPR reporter.

“That reporter couldn’t have done too good a job on you yesterday, huh?” Trump said. “I think you did a good job on her, actually.”

Pompeo claimed that Kelly had violated a pre-interview agreement between the two after he refused to engage on the subject of Ukraine. But emails reported by the Washington Post support Kelly’s claim that she refused to take any subject off the table.

Twitter was sickened:

Ivanka Whines in Davos: ‘I Gave Up My Life to Move to Washington DC to Help Americans’

0

Forgive this, but are you f…ing kidding me?

Ivanka Trump, who has never sacrificed a thing in her life, earning an estimated $80 million last year, based upon half her genome and proximity to power, wants you to know she gave up her life for you, the American people.

The New York Times reports:

“I gave up my life to move to Washington to try to help Americans, and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.”

I ask again, are you ffff … just never mind.

Jesus Christ throwing chairs and tables at Davos, this woman is more impressed with herself than the rest of the world (including Dad) is impressed with her, combined.

I could write a dissertation on all that’s wrong with Ivanka having a White House position, attending Davos on the government dime, with her believing she’s qualified to discuss anything, or actively engage in any policy position, but I wouldn’t come up with anything that you either don’t already know, or recognize as obvious the moment you read it.

Therefore, we’ll just leave it at this: The only thing Ivanka has given up in her life is her conscience, her empathy, and all but about 50 dangling IQ points.

First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s Car Rentals Push Taxpayer Cost of 2-Day Davos Trip to Over $4 Million

0

Donald Trump is currently in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum and he brought along daughter Ivanka Trump, who serves as an assistant to the president.

The fact that conservatives have been screaming Hunter Biden’s name for months now is truly incredible consider Ivanka Trump is exploiting the American taxpayer as I type this.

And now, based on a report from Quartz, Ivanka is costing the taxpayer a lot of money as well.

From QZ.com:

Vehicles rented by the US Secret Service to shuttle Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and advisor, around Davos will add another $34,000 to the cost of the administration’s two-day trip to this year’s World Economic Forum, helping nudge the total price tag past $4 million.

You will note the form lists the cars for “MARVEL” which is Ivanka’s secret service code name.

Additional rental car expenses in Davos include $736,000 by the White House travel office, and two more hotel bookings for the president’s entourage—one for $286,000, and one for $29,000—have now combined to make Team Trump’s two-day jaunt to Davos the priciest yet.

The total does not include security costs, salaries, or the estimated $2.2 million necessary to fly Air Force One round-trip between the US and Zurich and the Marine One helicopter flight from Zurich to Davos.

Ivanka caused a scene earlier int he day when she refused to answer a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“Your father’s impeachment trial, what are your thoughts?” Acosta asked Trump before she walked past him without responding on Tuesday. The reporter later shared a video of their interaction on Twitter.

Trump tweeted on Monday that she was attending the forum in Davos with the goal of gathering support for the White House’s “Pledge to America’s Workers.”

“Headed to Davos to call on the world’s largest employers to sign our #PledgetoAmericasWorkers and join us in unleashing the potential of our people and accelerating the historic wave of opportunity, wage growth and job creation in the United States,” her tweet read.

Acosta later said that other Trump administration figures gave him similar treatment.

“Much of the same from cabinet secretaries and other top WH aides at forum. Up until now they’ve been keeping clear of impeachment questions,” he tweeted.

Watch Donald Trump Just Got Booed During 30-Second Photo-Op at Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington D.C.

0

Well, I think it’s safe to say we expected this from Donald Trump.

Donald Trump and Mike Pence visited the Martin Luther King Memorial Monday afternoon and stayed for about 30 seconds, according to CNN’s Daniel Dale.

The announced trip is just a few hours before Trump is set to depart the White House for a quick trip to Davos, Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum.

Earlier Monday, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told reporters in the briefing room that Trump “agrees with many of the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for and agreed with for many years, including unity and equality.”

Conway also suggested King would have opposed Trump’s impeachment.

“When you see the articles of impeachment that came out, I don’t think it was within Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the President is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors,” she said.

“And I think that anybody who cares about ‘and justice for all’ — today or any day of the year — will appreciate the fact that the President now will have a full throttle defense on the facts. And everybody should have that.”

According to the pool report, Trump was booed at the memorial, but also received some cheers and a few chants of U-S-A.

“A mixture of cheers and boos greeted President Trump and Vice President Pence as they arrived at the MLK Memorial at around 4:33 p.m. Trump smiled and waved.

Trump and Pence stood at the base of the MLK sculpture for a minute, their heads bowed.

Some members of the crowd chanted “ U-S-A! “ A few delivered sustained boos.

Pool was pulled out after less than two minutes.”

Trump Supporters Try to Pass Off Woodstock Photo As a Photo of Donald Trump Rally

0

Ah, what would we do without Trump supporters?

Oh, I know. We’d have Hillary Clinton as president and a normal running democracy. But I digress.

Trump supporters have been on Twitter spreading a meme that purports to show an enormous crowd at a recent Trump rally in Pennsylvania.

There’s just one problem though. The photo is actually from the Woodstock music festival in August of 1969. Which is obvious if you notice everyone is wearing tie-dye and bellbottoms and not racist red MAGA hats.

Per Snopes, the original picture was taken by photographer Barry Z. Levine on 15 August 1969 and captured an aerial view of the massive festival crowd in Bethel, New York.

The president did hold a rally in Montoursville, Penn., in May 2019, and according to local news reports, thousands of supporters attended. However, Woodstock was a historic cultural event that was notable not just for capturing the zeitgeist of the Baby Boomer generation and the artists who performed there, but also its size. An estimated 400,000 celebrants attended the festival at its height.

Crowd size is a topic of some obsession for Trump, who made a fuss about images comparing the size of his inauguration crowd with that of his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Twitter had a field day:

President Trump Supporters Appear to Think a Porn Star is ‘More Classy’ Than a Two-Time Ivy League Graduate

0

I am constantly shocked by the number of Trump supporters who claim they are thankful for Melania Trump because she brought “class” back into the White House.

And as sad as this is to say, certain white people still think they are superior to black people. Unfortunately, that attitude is still prevalent.

Here are two recent examples.

First lady Melania Trump was named a “Woman of Distinction” by Palm Beach University, a small Florida Christian college. Melania Trump is a former model, who also did softcore porn, and is now married to a man old enough to be her father. She’s also a college dropout. I can’t think of anything notable she’s done in her life or as first lady.

As the wife of the president, she’s lead the ridiculous “Be Best” campaign which is supposed to teach children about bullying.

Meanwhile, she’s married to Donald Trump, a man who specializes in taunting his opponents with insulting nicknames and recently bullied 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg!

But this kind of insanity is not unusual.

I mean, just take a look at this horrific meme I found on Twitter:

During the 2016 campaign, there was a focus group where a white woman said that she couldn’t wait until Melania was first lady so she could bring class back to the White House. So in her mind, Michelle Obama, a law school graduate who attended two Ivy League universities, was less classy than Melania, the former nude model and trophy wife.

Obama was an Ivy League graduate, had a picture-perfect wife and two kids, no divorce, no out of wedlock children and even then white people still hated him for daring to ascend to the highest office in the land.

Sorry, but last time I checked there weren’t pictures of Michelle Obama’s naked vagina on the Internet, and Michelle Obama didn’t take part in a lesbian porn photoshoot.

Additionally, Melania Trump once claimed that she was the “most bullied person on the world.” Oh, really? Michelle Obama was regularly called “an ape” and a “Wookie” and never publicly complained when she was first lady.

This was just one of many double standards the Obamas faced.

Obama had to be darned near perfect to get in the White House. Obama was an Ivy League graduate, had a picture-perfect wife and two kids, no divorce, no out of wedlock children and even then white people still hated him for daring to ascend to the highest office in the land.

That hatred is still potent.

Trump used it to get elected and even today right wingers still believe the most ridiculous Obama conspiracy theories. The New York Times recently covered a rally of Trump supporters in Arizona and one attendee said she wasn’t sure about Obama’s birth certificate or religion!

“If you’re Muslim, just tell us you’re Muslim,” said Stacey Goodman, a retired police officer. “It’s not that I didn’t believe him, I’m just not qualified to answer that question. I’ve seen information on both sides that’s compelling.”

Even more ridiculous are the lies about Michelle Obama’s gender. A conspiracy theory has been circulating that she is transgender. (A quick Google search will produce plenty of pictures of her earlier accomplishments including photos while she was pregnant.) The fact that this was promoted by conspiracy king Alex Jones, should have stopped it dead in its tracks, but it’s still alive in 2020.

Graduates of Florida University are FURIOUS That Melania Awarded ‘Women of Distinction

0

First Lady Melania Trump is set to be recognized by Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBAU) as its 2020 “Woman of Distinction,” but it appears graduates of the small Christian college are not thrilled with the choice.

The university typically fetes two women who have contributed to the community each year at an honorary luncheon, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Melania Trump will be the sole recipient of the recognition at this year’s awards luncheon, though, which will be held on Feb. 19.

“Our first lady is an exquisite human being, a magnificent wife and life partner, a superb mother and an outstanding first lady,” the luncheon’s co-chairwoman Eileen Burns told USA Today.

“First ladies define the history of our country” Frances Fisher, another co-chairwoman for the event at the private Christian university, told the Palm Beach Post. “We are honored to recognize Mrs. Trump as a Woman of Distinction and the only first lady since Mrs. Kennedy to be a Palm Beach resident. This will be a truly memorable event.”

However, one graduate of the university, Kyra Kinnaman is not pleased with the choice.

In an op-ed in the Palm Beach Post, Kinnaman writes that Melania is not the kind of “distinction” PBAU should be awarding.

Kinnaman lists 4 reasons why she feels the choice is terrible.

A. Melania Trump has pulled publicity stunts that are disrespectful to the dignity of human persons. She wore a now infamous jacket with the text “I DON’T REALLY CARE, DO U?” on the back while on a visit to an immigration detention center. While she has tried to give context to this fashion choice by saying that it was to troll the left-wing media, it was a personal decision and a blatant disregard for the human rights atrocities that are occurring at the U.S. Southern border (still today). While the Woman of Distinction honor is supposed to recognize her work in bettering the lives of children, she has not spoken up once against family separation at the border, used her influence on her husband to allow for donated vaccines for detained migrants and their children or advocated for any change to the living conditions at the detention centers where people are quite literally dying.

B. The BE BEST campaign is not consistent with the rest of her actions as first lady. She has never criticized President Donald Trump’s frequent online harassment of many people, notably including 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg — a minor.

C. As a learning institution, it should be concerning that its chosen Woman of Distinction allegedly plagiarized part of a speech previously given by former first lady Michelle Obama.

D. Melania Trump has done nothing to separate herself from the nationalist, racist narrative often promulgated by the Trump White House. The administration has pardoned war criminals and then hosted them at Mar-a-Lago, defended white nationalists, and very recently escalated what many believe was a baseless conflict with Iran.

Trump Insider: First Lady Truly Believes She’s the ‘Most Bullied Person in the World’

0

Melania Trump says she is “the most bullied person in the world.”

And according to someone who knows Melania well, she really believes this.

The First Lady told ABC News in 2018 that personal attacks on her inspired her to launch the “Be Best” anti-bullying initiative.

“I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world,” she said in an interview recorded during her tour of Africa. “One of them – if you really see what people are saying about me.”

“That’s why ‘Be Best’ is focusing on online behavior and social media,” she added. “We need to educate the children [about] social, emotional behavior.”

The First Lady has made cyberbullying a key part of her public platform, having pledged to fight it while campaigning for her husband in 2016.

But many have questioned the choice of subject, given her husband’s well-known habit of insulting his critics on Twitter.

In the ABC interview Melania also dismissed the idea that she had “the most control”over the president but said she often gave him “her honest advice” about which members of the administration he should trust.

“It’s harder to govern,” she said. “You always need to watch your back.”

According to CNN’s Kate Bennett, who covers the First Lady exclusively, Melania truly believes she is the most bullied person in the world.

Bennett was interviewed by The Washingtonian about her new book, “Free, Melania” and was asked about Melania claiming she is the most bullied person in the world.

Bennett responded, “I think she really believes it.”

She then followed up and said, “Well, you have to also remember she’s a Trump. She lives in that bubble—like, “We’re constantly under attack.” Sometimes she remarkably does the wrong thing. But I’ve gone with her to see detained [migrant] kids, and she really does get down on her hands and knees and gets dirty and holds kids and plays with them.”

When asked whether Melania was a hostage at the White House, Bennett said, “No. This is another thing that surprises people: She really digs living in the White House. I don’t think she would have chosen to be First Lady, but now that she’s there . . . . I’ve never thought she was trapped.

People find this hard to believe, but she’s very warm and very friendly. The things about Melania that people assume—that she’s cold and rigid and haughty, she doesn’t let us tell any other story. I think for years she’s watched Donald Trump and just does the opposite. Like with Ivanka: She watched Ivanka trot out her kids, Instagram about them, do this whole, like, Camelot 2.0. And it was like—bloop!—“I’m not doing any of that.”

Republicans Furious That WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is Being Blacklisted From Getting a Job

0

We haven’t seem much from Sarah Huckabee Sanders since she left the White House, and we consider that a GOOD THING.

Former White House Press Secretary Sanders will no doubt go down in history as one of the worst press secretaries in history and the progressive organization American Bridge is attempting to make sure Sanders stays where she belongs…in the background and away from any position that requires trustworthiness.

American Bridge recently sent out a mass email containing an open letter calling for American CEOs to refuse to hire Sarah Huckabee Sanders on the basis of her job performance as Trump’s Press Secretary.

You remember, the lies, obfuscation, and more lies.

American Bridge is hoping to get as many signatures as possible to ensure she is not hired in any capacity to serve the American people again.

Currently she is on Fox News, although pretty rarely. But still, her segments are just what you’d expect. All lies.

Many Democrats say Sanders blatantly lied for the President, deflected blame for him in many situations, and constantly appeared as an actively untrustworthy representation of the American Presidency. In her testimony to Robert Mueller, she even admitted to lying to the press.

The letter effectively sums up the opinions of many Americans on Sanders and calls for the nation’s business leaders to act now to stop her from continuing.

Take a look below at excerpts from the American Bridge open letter:

“Hello: We signed an open letter to America’s CEOs demanding they won’t hire anyone from the Trump administration who was complicit in Trump’s family separation policy.

Trump just announced that Sarah Sanders, his long-time press secretary and avid liar from the White House podium, will be leaving his administration at the end of the month.

Sanders will no doubt be looking for her next big gig––but CEOs must reject her resume.

Sanders spread misinformation, deflected blame, and did her best to cover for Trump at the expense of the truth about the family separation policy.”

The email also read “50,000 SIGNATURES NEEDED → Tell America’s CEOs: Don’t hire Sarah Sanders!” in hopes of gaining support from as many as possible and continues:

“Because of their negligence, children have been physically abused.

Because of their negligence, children have been sexually assaulted.

Because of their negligence, children have died.

Their inaction and negligence did not happen in a vacuum. Senior members of the Trump administration played a role, many helping craft, implement, and defend this heinous policy.

Some of these individuals have left the administration in recent months. Regardless of when they leave, they should not be allowed to seek refuge in your boardrooms or corner offices. Allowing them to step off of the revolving door and into your welcoming arms should be a nonstarter.

Many of you spoke out against this barbaric policy. However strong the opposition, your words are meaningless unless they are backed up with resolute action.

We call on you to make it clear that you will not hire for employment, contract for consulting, or seat on your boards, anyone involved in the development or implementation of the Trump administration’s family separation immigration policy.”

Well, the right-wing alt-right rag Breitbart is calling on their readers to stop the attack on Sanders. Many in the GOP and the far right believe this is an unfair boycott and some have even called for conservatives to stage their own boycotts in schools, workplaces, etc. to prove their point.

None of this is seeming to bother Sanders though, who on Friday paid Trump’s filing fee to the Republican Party to run for reelection in Arkansas.

Sanders, an Arkansas native, said she wished to “convey our strong support of the president” ahead of his reelection campaign.

Expert Suggests Trump May Replace Mike Pence on Ticket With Ivanka Trump So He Can Stay in Power Longer

0
(Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

Ever since Donald Trump’s June rally in Florida where supporters behind him were seen with signs that read “Trump 2020”, there have been rumors Trump would drop Mike Pence as his running mate.

Choosing a new running mate for a second term isn’t a new idea. It’s been over 40 years since a president ran for re-election with a new running mate — it’s been over 70 years since it was successful.

As rare as it is, it is still a subject of speculation amongst every leader running for re-election. But as with everything surrounding the Trump Administration, this one is different.

There are two things that Donald Trump loves in this world more than anything.

The first is obviously himself.

The second is his First Daughter, Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka has taken on a very large role since her father won the presidency. She is his special advisor and has traveled the world meeting with world leaders in various forums. This is usually something handled by the president himself or the vice president, but President Trump has often delegated this position to Ivanka, who came in with zero experience in this arena.

It has always appeared that Donald Trump has been preparing his daughter for some form of elected office in the future. And the future could be now. Here’s why it would work for him.

Donald Trump trusts Ivanka. Ivanka might as well be the vice president right now. There is nobody that Donald trusts more than his daughter. She is a part of him and has faithfully been by his side and never dares to say a negative thing about him. She lives by and understands what he means when he says that loyalty is everything to him.

Donald Trump does not need Mike Pence. Mike Pence was chosen for one reason and one reason only — he’s as close to a fundamental evangelical as you can get in politics. Donald Trump had a religious problem going into the election and he used Mike Pence (and Jerry Falwell Jr.) to give him that official evangelical checkmark of approval to get the evangelical vote.

At this time, enough propaganda has been out there that he no longer needs Mike Pence. As long as Jerry Falwell Jr. is there to promote him as a man of God, that’s all he needs for that evangelical approval.

Donald Trump needs the women’s vote. Women are the largest group of people outside of the non-Christian population and non-caucasian population that do not approve of Donald Trump.

Would a female vice president help soften that image and tip the scales? It may just enough. It’s a better option than Mike Pence that’s for sure.

Donald Trump likes making history. A Trump as the first female vice president? History. Then when Donald steps down in 2023 (or removed from office before then) to let his daughter take over, it makes a Trump the first female president of the United States.

In addition to that, she would not hesitate one bit to pardon him for any potential crimes he may have committed. It’s as easy of a “Get Out of Jail Free” card as you’re gonna find.

And many people are speculating this will happen, including Dr. Jack Brown, a physician and body language and motional intelligence expert.

Take a look at what Dr. Brown foresees happening:
