This story broke a few days ago, but I wanted to mention it. More than one hundred newspapers – does anyone even read newspapers anymore? – have scheduled a coordinated attack on President Trump tomorrow. So, in other words, it will be a day ending in “y.”
The Boston Globe has enlisted more than 100 newspapers from across the country to publish editorials fighting back against President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media.
The Globe has been contacting editorial boards and asking them to publish an editorial on Thursday, CNN reported Saturday.
“We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration’s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date,” The Globe said in its pitch.
Now, if I’m reading this correctly, a gaggle of newspapers want to prove their integrity… by launching a pre-planned, coordinated attack against the president? The Boston Globe begged and pleaded with their leftist counterparts to join the fray, then claimed it was a grassroots effort.
Even when these clowns attempt to do something noble, they trip over their bias. And people wonder why most newspapers are failing.
That awful, corrupt, Visigoth president of ours showed his true dictatorial colors after stopping his motorcade to personally thank a group of firefighters. Donald Trump is obviously a racist. Or something
A video from June showing an impromptu presidential stop to greet and thank a group of surprised firefighters has gone viral this weekend.
The video shows Trump’s limousine stopping abruptly, presumably on Trump’s orders, as two Secret Service agents come to the window to speak with the president.
A firefighter who had been videoing the motorcade can be heard saying “No, he’s not …” and nervously laughing. But then, Trump exits the vehicle and applauds the firefighters as he makes his way towards them.
“Thank you, men, thank you,” the president can be heard saying as he shakes hands, poses for selfies, and makes his way through the group. (H/T – MelP)
As I said to MelP when she forwarded this, you can say what you want about the president’s demeanor, tact, and the way he speaks, but there is no doubt he loves this country, and its citizens.
Thursday’s Rasmussen daily tracking poll showed President Trump with a 50% approval rating. The president earned this number the day after he called on Attorney General “Sleepy” Jeff Sessions to reign in the Mueller investigation.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
The latest figures include 35% who Strongly Approve of the way Trump is performing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -6. While his daily approval rating is 50% today, President Trump has earned a monthly job approval of 46% in July.
Donald Trump is a phenomenon rarely seen in presidential politics. The man can be loud, arrogant, and uncouth, but he also is doing tremendous things for the country. If the polling data is any indication, the voters are taking notice.
During a press conference yesterday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders – a woman I absolutely adore – stated President Trump is considering revoking the security clearances of the Obama administration’s most prolific jackasses.
President Trump is looking into revoking the security clearances of several top Obama-era intelligence and law enforcement officials, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday, accusing them of having “politicized” or “monetized” their public service.
She made the announcement at Monday’s press briefing, after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called on the president to specifically revoke Trump critic and former CIA Director John Brennan’s clearance.
Sanders said Trump is considering it — and also looking into the clearances for other former officials and Trump critics: former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and former CIA Director Michael Hayden (who also worked under President George W. Bush).
I already love this man and his administration, but if President Trump does this I will build many churches in his honor.
President Trump took the fight to CNN once again yesterday, calling the “news network” fake news while responding to prissy little snowflake Jim Acosta.
President Donald Trump called CNN “fake news” when the network’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta tried to ask a question during a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May Friday.
Trump told Acosta that he preferred taking a question from a “real” news network. “No, John Roberts, go ahead,” Trump repeated. “CNN is fake news. I don’t take questions from CNN. CNN is fake news.” Acosta countered that CNN is also a “real network.”
Heh. Every day, I love the president a little more.
P.S. – I’m in Maryland this weekend for Kyle’s final summer lacrosse tournament. I’ll only be online sporadically, since Kyle has two games today and two tomorrow.
The June jobs report is out, and with it, more than 200,000 new jobs were added. While this continuing trend is good news for America, it is apparently not good news for the Democrats.
Democrats saw nothing positive in the new June jobs report that highlighted 213,000 new jobs added. Instead, the Democratic Party issued a statement criticizing President Trump’s jobs agenda as “reckless.”
After the U.S. Department of Labor released the latest jobs and unemployment numbers, DNC Chair and former Labor Secretary Tom Perez released the following statement:
“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families. Trump and Republicans in Congress have been so determined to undermine workers that they held a Supreme Court seat hostage for nearly a year in order to nominate an aggressively anti-union justice, who became the deciding vote in last week’s disgraceful decision in the Janus case.
You see, a jobs boom means more money in people’s pockets. More money means more independence, and more independence means people have less use for Tom Perez, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrat machine.
The Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s travel ban Monday, in a close decision which was divided along party lines.
A sharply divided Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump’s ban on travel from several mostly Muslim countries Tuesday, the conservative majority taking his side in a major ruling supporting his presidential power.
The 5-4 decision was a big victory for Trump in the court’s first substantive ruling on one of his administration’s policies. It also was the latest demonstration of a newly invigorated conservative majority and a bitter defeat for the court’s liberals.
Dear Never Trumpers, while I doubt any of you will admit you were wrong about this president, his actions show he is more conservative than any of you in the alleged #TruCon media.
[Chief Justice John] Roberts wrote that the travel ban was well within U.S. presidents’ considerable authority over immigration and responsibility for keeping the nation safe. He rejected the challengers’ claim of anti-Muslim bias that rested in large part on Trump’s own tweets and statements over the past three years.
Roberts is absolutely correct here. The president has always enjoyed sweeping authority over the border and immigration issues. Moreover, the first and most important job of the president is to keep the citizens safe. We cannot do that with porous borders.
Now sing it with me…
“Trumpety Trump Trump, Trumpety, Trump, Trump,
Watch illegals go,
Trumpety Trump Trump, Trumpety, Trump, Trump,
Back to Mexico!”
