Almost two-thirds of federal employees voted for Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, according to a new survey. The poll also found that six of 10 felt that the election itself gave Americans a negative impression of federal service. So it may come as no surprise that some federal employees are considering leaving their employment when President-elect Donald Trump assumes office. “More than one in four federal workers, or 28 percent, will definitely or possibly consider leaving their jobs after Jan. 20 when Trump is sworn into office and becomes leader of the executive branch,” according to the survey conducted
This is a remarkable day in the history of our country. We have never over our centuries inaugurated a man like Donald Trump as president of the United States. You can select any random group of former presidents — Madison, Lincoln, Hoover, Carter — and none of them are like Trump. We’ve never had a major national leader as professionally unprepared, intellectually ill informed, morally compromised and temperamentally unfit as the man taking the oath on Friday. So let’s not lessen the shock factor that should reverberate across this extraordinary moment. It took a lot to get us here. It took a
In the first days of 2017, Washington D.C. was empty. It was a city holding its breath. Secret Service police officers in balaclavas waited at the White House as a black SUV carrying departing staffers passed. It had not been so long ago that they came into the city as if they owned it and the entire country. Now the same men and women who ran and ruined the lives of millions were scrolling through job postings on their smartphones. They watched Obama speak from faded screens at sports bars and they cried. They knew it was coming. Day 1. The parties
Wearing pink, pointy-eared "pussyhats" to mock the new president, hundreds of thousands of women massed in the nation´s capital and cities around the globe Saturday to send Donald Trump an emphatic message that they won´t let his agenda go unchallenged over the next four years. "We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war," actress America Ferrera told the Washington crowd. "Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. ...
Michelle Obama looked unimpressed during the inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th President of the United States – summing up the mood among critics of the controversial billionaire who was sworn in at a ceremony on Capitol Hill. Eyebrow raised, the former first lady stood and watched as Mr Trump recited the 35-word oath. Her dour facial expression prompted an immediate reaction on social media, with one person saying that her evident displeasure at the New York tycoon becoming the most powerful man on the planet “spoke for all of us”. One image showed Ms Obama – who has been
So far, first lady Melania Trump´s inaugural weekend wardrobe has been the epitome of powerfully feminine. Trump arrived at St. John's Church on Friday morning in a baby blue Ralph Lauren cashmere bolero jacket with a high cowl neck, and matching sheath and gloves. (So Jackie O. In fact, Jacqueline Kennedy wore a sky-blue suit to her husband's inauguration.) Trump's shoulder-length tresses were pulled into a soft bun. Her cheeks were rosy.
Michelle Obama forcefully and passionately warned last year of the dangers of electing Donald Trump. And, for eight years in the White House, she was never shy about her dislike of politics or her resolve to never seek political office herself. But, within hours of sitting witness to Trump taking the oath of office and then making her post-inaugural getaway to Palm Springs, Calif., Mrs. Obama was on Twitter, promising her followers that she’s only taking “a little break.” “Will be back before you know it to work on the issues we care about.” The former first lady’s tweet came amid
Never mind the Russians. It was Hillary Clinton who was actually trying to sabotage the 2016 Presidential Election, according to a WikiLeaks release. The information released shows that the Hillary Clinton campaign staffers bribed six Republicans to “destroy Trump”. The evidence includes an email from John Podesta to Huma Abedin discussing diverting Clinton campaign funds to various Republicans who were secretly on the Clinton payroll. Conservativedailypost.com reports: The email, sent in July of this year, describes how funds were being diverted from Clinton’s campaign to the Super PACS of Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina,
Michelle Obama may now be the former first lady, but on the Internet, she’s being celebrated as the reigning shade queen, thanks to her facial expressions on Inauguration Day.When the Trumps arrived at the White House and were welcomed by the Obamas, Melania Trump presented Obama with a gift in a Tiffany & Co. blue box. It was a nice gesture (and a traditional one), but split-second freeze frames of Obama’s face have people thinking that she wasn’t really there for the present. same, @MichelleObama pic.twitter.com/rrUBWrsDrZ — Tyler Oakley (@tyleroakley) January 20, 2017 Michelle Obama after getting a Tiffany’s gift
For some it’s more appreciation. For some it’s newly surfaced regrets. Some are committed to watching the inauguration, staring right into how much everything is going to change. Some say they can’t bear the thought of having it on TV. Some conveniently scheduled flights to long-delayed vacations so they’ll be in the air at 12:01. Many of those left to cope by heading to the farewell ceremony that will be at Andrews Air Force Base as soon as the ceremony’s over. Staring down the final hours until Donald Trump is president puts Barack Obama into sharper definition than ever for his network
Donald Trump and his family hit the ground running in Washington DC on Thursday, busying themselves with an array of events and appearances ahead of Donald´s swearing in on Friday afternoon. The family arrived in nation´s capitol shortly after noon on Thursday, before making their way to the family´s eponymous hotel in the district. Then, after a brief appearance at a luncheon, it was off to Arlington National Cemetery, where Trump had the honor of laying the wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns to remember the nation´s fallen soldiers. He was joined for that monumental event by his wife
(Video) Director Michael Moore held a massive protest Thursday night outside Trump´s New York City International Hotel, featuring speeches from prominant figures including Robert De Niro and Mark Ruffalo. The protest started at 6 p.m. with Robert De Niro poking-fun at Trump by reading off imagined tweets from the president-elect. It was followed by speeches from Moore, Alec Baldwin, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, Ruffalo and Rev. Al Sharpton among others. Moore started off saying it is a "very dangerous" time in the United States, calling Trump a "sociopath." "With a lot of work on our part, we will stop
