Don´t mess with CNN. That´s the unvarnished version of a message that the network´s president, Jeff Zucker, delivered to President-elect Donald Trump in an interview published on Thursday by New York magazine. "One of the things I think this administration hasn’t figured out yet is that there’s only one television network that is seen in Beijing, Moscow, Seoul, Tokyo, Pyongyang, Baghdad, Tehran and Damascus — and that’s CNN," Zucker said. "The perception of Donald Trump in capitals around the world is shaped, in many ways, by CNN. Continuing to have an adversarial relationship with that network is a mistake."
Arizona Sen. John McCain on Sunday said he´s still uncertain about whether President Trump will lead a successful administration. Asked if he has "confidence" in America´s new commander in chief, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee twice said: "I do not know." "I do not know because has made so many comments that are contradictory," McCain told ABC´s George Stephanopoulos. "But I think the fact that he´s appointed and nominated these outstanding individuals is bound to be an encouraging sign," he continued. "I trust them and have worked with them over many years." McCain, a Republican, has been
Marie Harf, a deputy spokeswoman for the State Department under the Obama administration, is joining Fox News as a contributor. Fox News announced Monday that Harf, a Democrat, "will offer national security and political analysis" and that she will begin appearing on air Monday. Harf was often a subject of ridicule, mostly by conservatives, for comments she made at the State Department during her tenure. In early 2015, she memorably argued that to effectively fight the Islamic State, "we need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether
The left wing is always a dangerous place for a Trump supporter to be. Even on an airplane. But when Scott Koteskey boarded his flight from Baltimore to Seattle on Saturday, he likely had no idea the woman sitting next to him would berate him in an incoherent and unhinged rant – that was all captured on a video that quickly went viral. “You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the unidentified woman said after a flight attendant left to get security. “That man doesn’t believe in climate change,”
Former President Barack Obama looked to be in deep thought as he headed home from a workout, escorted by his smallest motorcade in years. The nation´s 44th president has chosen to spend the first days of his newfound retirement playing golf and hitting the gym at Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. Obama was captured looking tiresome and in heavy contemplation as he was driven back to his home in a dark vehicle, flanked by his tiny new security detail on Sunday. He seemed to be in better spirits on Saturday when he was driving around a golf cart at the ultra-exclusive
U.S. government sources tell CBS News that there is a sense of unease in the intelligence community after President Trump’s visit to CIA headquarters on Saturday. An official said the visit “made relations with the intelligence community worse” and described the visit as “uncomfortable.” Authorities are also pushing back against the perception that the CIA workforce was cheering for the president. They say the first three rows in front of the president were largely made up of supporters of Mr. Trump’s campaign. An official with knowledge of the make-up of the crowd says that there were about 40 people who’d been invited by
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is looking at a series of reports to examine what went wrong as she and Bill Clinton figure out what´s next for the couple who have dominating their party´s politics for 25 years. Politico talked to a number of Clinton allies who say the former secretary of state is waiting out the Democratic National Committee chair election in February – as it´s shaping up to be an ideological rematch of the Clinton versus Sen. Bernie Sanders Democratic primary war. Their inner circle is also advocating a ´wait-and-see´ approach before she steps into a more public-facing
Hillary Clinton is ´50-50´ on deciding whether or not she will run for New York mayor, a city political insider claims. Supermarket magnate John Catsimatidis said he´s convinced that Clinton might challenge current Mayor Bill de Blasio with a campaign this year Catsimatidis, a billionaire who was a Clinton donor during the 2016 presidential campaign, said he will hold off his own decision to run for mayor until the former secretary of state decides what she will do. ´I spoke to her about it, but she didn´t indicate or signal to me [whether she would run]. She didn´t say never, she didn´t
By all rights, I should be a Democrat. I´m Hispanic and grew up poor in the 50´s in the mean streets of Spanish Harlem. The films and television entertainment shows at that time had predominantly white stars till the 1960´s. My life had nothing in common with those on the screens and I have never been wealthy nor will I ever be yet I have never envied those who are. The reason why I have always been politically on the right is that I was fortunate to have a very religious mother and I never went to public school, thus I have never been brainwashed.
The Clintons are already plotting their comeback, a new report details. Hillary Clinton is looking for a path to return to the political fray, as both she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, examine how the former secretary of state suffered the most surprising, epic political defeat in recent memory, Politico reports. “[D]espite the grave disappointment, resilience is in the Clintons’ DNA. So, while I certainly don’t expect to see them trying to assert their authority, I think there will be natural and welcome opportunities for them to engage,” said Mack McLarty, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff. Hillary
(Video) After leading a Women’s March during the Sundance Film Festival, talkshow host Chelsea Handler sat down with Variety‘s Elizabeth Wagmeister for an interview. During the chat, she was asked if she would ever interview Donald Trump. She’s already told other outlets she would never do that, but this time, the follow-up question was whether she’d ever consider Melania Trump. “Melania? To talk about what? She can barely speak English,” she quipped. Wagmeister then asked what Handler thinks of the model as First Lady. Handler responded, “xactly what I think about him as the First Man. Nothing. I don’t respect
For the last 8 years leftist thugs have gotten a pass. Early on in the Obama administration, New Black Panther storm troopers – the label is fitting because they were decked out in ominous uniforms – stood before a polling station, weapons at hand, an obvious effort at voter intimidation that drew no official action from Eric Holder’s Justice Department. In effect, open season was declared by the chief law enforcement officer of the United States, and the message was received by progressives. (Photo) Those days are over, now that Holder’s surrogate Loretta Lynch is no longer in charge at
