The White House insisted Thursday that Donald Trump´s lispy, halting performance Wednesday in an Israel policy speech is nothing to worry about, and a U.S. Navy doctor will release the results of a physical next year to prove it. The president´s speaking cadence became irregular and his speech slurred during part of his delivery, concluding with ´God bless the United Shhtates.´ ´There were a lot of questions on that. Frankly pretty ridiculous questions,´ White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters on Thursday.´The president´s throat was dry. Nothing more than that.´ Sanders took a nothing-to-see-here approach on Thursday, and committed to
He appeared to have some congestion since his nasal breathing was noticeable. But he only had two misspoken words, which is pretty good for reading a teleprompter. He´s much more accustomed to winging it and the physiological effects of reading a speech like that at a pace like that are hard to know -- each person is different.
I am not surprised the left/media would jump on this non-story.
Oh please President Trump, stop letting the Dems, Media, Your adversaries, all of the above, they´re all the same....Please stop letting them drive any of your narrative.
They´re all fake news all the time now. They wouldn´t dare report on Hilary when there actually was news. They´re like monkeys flinging poo. And every time they get you to respond to them, they see that as a win for them. Leave the poo where it originates, with them, the Dems and media. Thank you.
Half a dozen times during that video you can see the President moving his mouth in a way that is obvious that he is working to adjust his plate. Another NOTHINGBBURGER for the Left to have a feeding frenzy over. Sheesh.
A friend’s very learned father taught his children to never come down to the level of people beneath their intellectual level; to never argue with anyone beneath their intellectual level. That admonishment has served his now aged children and their friends with whom they shared his wisdom very well.
Pelosi either has dementia or has made too many trips to the wine rack.Neither her or Hiterly has offered to take a doc´s exam.The left will grasp at any straw to get rid of Trump.They´re scared to death that he´ll get more converts as he goes along.The left simply can´t stand a moral authority president.
Bill Staehle, who served with Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore in Vietnam, stood onstage Monday night during a rally in Midland City, Alabama, delivering a rousing character testimony of his war buddy and defending him from what he saw as incoming political fire. “I looked into his eyes. Last time I had seen him he was wearing jungle fatigues,” he said. “And I tell you, people of Alabama, he’s the same guy.” “He’s honorable, disciplined, morally straight, highly principled — the same qualities we would hope to have in all of our elected officials but don’t,” he said, prompting
Alabama talk radio host Dale Jackson ripped CNN and the rest of the mainstream media on Sunday during an episode of “Reliable Sources” with host Brian Stelter, as he explained why people do not trust the network. During the segment, Stelter was trying to understand why people in Alabama were still supporting Roy Moore after explosive allegations published by The Washington Post several weeks ago. “Why in the world would people believe the things that are said if it’s always negative over and over and over and over again?” Jackson said. “That weaponizes the term fake news.” Jackson continued, “The bottom
At the conclusion of U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley´s interview with CNN´s Jake Tapper yesterday, Tapper wished Haley a "merry Christmas and happy new year." Haley responded by wishing Tapper "a merry Christmas." But in the Trump era, nothing is ever as it appears to be. Tapper is Jewish (first I´ve heard of that), and, according to lefties on the internet, she should have wished him a "happy Hanukkah."Crooks and Liars: At the end of an interview with Haley about President Donald Trump´s decision to accept Jerusalem as the Israel´s capital, Tapper concluded by acknowledging Haley´s Christian faith. "Madam Ambassador," Tapper
Former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that there’s “no legitimate” reason why the public should see her testimony about her role in tea party targeting, pleading with a judge to keep her deposition permanently sealed. Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment. They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out
The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the
GOP senatorial nominee Judge Roy Moore will throw a rally Monday night, on the eve of Election Day, in Midland City, Alabama. Breitbart News’ Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon will join Moore, as well as Sheriff David Clarke, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and other local speakers. Moore is campaigning against Democratic nominee Doug Jones in a special election to fill U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former Senate seat. The event is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m. ET (6:00 p.m. local).
Fox News is back in action with the single most ridiculous, psy-op engineered, agenda polls in the last several years…. and coming from a CTH community that has reviewed hundreds of media polls in the past 5 years, that’s quite a statement. Consider:(Photos) (Emerson Poll Link) -vs-(Fox News Poll Link)Both of these cannot be correct. The margin of error claimed is +/- 2.5%. There is a NINETEEN point difference between both Alabama Polls. However, only ONE is a media driven agenda poll. Can you guess which one? Yes, once again, the Rupert Murdoch clan are up to their media-polling tricks
California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and
An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,
There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most
The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for
Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some
In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for
