President Trump and First Lady Melania escape DC scandalfest for nine-day foreign tour- the first since they entered the White House-with Jared and Ivanka in tow.* Daily Mail (UK), by David Martosko, Francesca Chambers
President Donald Trump has departed on a five-stop diplomacy tour through Europe and the Middle East that will cover 15,600 miles in the air over the course of nine days. The president, the first lady Melania Trump, Chief of staff Reince Priebus, Jared Kushner, and Trump´s eldest daughter, Ivanka, left the White House aboard Marine One just before 2pm Friday, EST. Fifteen minutes later, the group arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. The first couple stopped and waved as they boarded Air Force One. They are currently on a 12-hour flight to Saudi Arabia. The chaos-courting leader of the
British reporters love to make up hysterical over reach of MSM lies. Comey contradicts his own narrative, because he really isn´t that bright and he lies all the time, so he can´t keep his stories straight.
"Scandalfest"? Name one real, fact based scandal that can be attributed to the Trump Administration. The only real scandal is the treasonous and seditious crimes being comitted by the democrat communist party members in Congress, in government positions and of course by the pond scum media.
A plastic surgeon in New York City says business is booming with a subset of clients — women who want to look like Ivanka Trump. Specific botox, cheek implants, and rhinoplasty procedures designed to make a woman look like President Trump’s eldest daughter have kept Dr. Norman Rowe busy once a week since last summer. The surgeon said over the weekend that he is amazed at the popularity of two procedures; one involves “temporary fillers” with a $30,000 to $40,000 price tag, while the “Permanent Ivanka” tallies $45,000 to $50,000. “Since the summer of ‘16 … [it’s been] maybe four
Jedediah Bila shocked audiences when she departed “The View” on Monday — and according to a source, this sudden departure may have something to do with Hillary Clinton. Clinton was on the show last Wednesday promoting her book “What Happened,” with conservative Bila calling her “tone deaf” and asking the former presidential candidate a tough question. “To be fair, it hasn’t just been Republicans who have taken issue with the writing of this book. Some Democrats have come out as well,” Bila said to Clinton. “Former campaign surrogates of yours, former fundraisers and said, ‘This book puts us in the
It is important for political travelers deep in the weeds to reference and recognize patterns that encompass significant geopolitical events. Businessman Donald Trump has, as a natural disposition of his approach, always maintain a specific engagement pattern of respect toward his adversaries; he carries this same approach into the diplomatic role of the presidency. Tomorrow President Trump will be speaking to the U.N. General Assembly. There is a great deal of anticipatory media reporting circling how international community are evaluating the administration; and how President Trump will outline the “Trump Doctrine”.
Six Californian recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals´ protections sued the Trump administration on Monday to block the repeal of the controversial immigration program. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, alleges that President Donald Trump´s decision to terminate the program "was motivated by unconstitutional bias against Mexicans and Latinos," the Los Angeles Times reports. DACA protects certain illegal immigrants who came to the United States as minors. Implemented by the Obama administration through executive order, the program declines to prosecute or deport its
A number of celebrities attending the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards wore ribbons to express support for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has fought vigorously against President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda. Since Trump’s inauguration in January, the ACLU has filed a number of legal challenges to Trump’s policies, including against his policies on immigration and the ban on transgender members of the military. Over the years, the organization has also become known for its staunch protection of illegal aliens, filing multiple lawsuits against local authorities for upholding federal law. The organization has also become known for its environmental
The Emmys are becoming a tougher sell for viewers. For another year, initial ratings for the TV awards are down — this time slipping to an all-time low. Adjustments could put the total audience ahead of the previous year´s low, but the 8.2 overnight rating among metered market households is down another 2 percent from the previous year. That means that the final tally for the 2017 Emmys, hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS, is on track to slip below the 11.3 million viewers (and a mere 2.8 rating among adults 18-49) that tuned in during 2016. Overnight ratings are naturally below those of NBC's Sunday Night Football,
MSNBC host Katy Tur is granting interviews to promote her book Unbelievable on being a political correspondent on the Trump campaign, and that included an hour-long softball session on NPR´s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Tur claimed she doesn´t vote because "I don´t have a horse in the race." Earth to Miss Tur: When you host a daily program on MSNBC and received adulatory hour-long interviews on NPR, the public can guess which side you´re on. This pose was first notably struck by Leonard Downie when he was the executive editor of The Washington Post. After all, when you're a powerful journalist that can make national
The United Nations must reduce bureaucracy and focus on results, President Trump said Monday during remarks at a reform meeting. Trump said the U.N. was founded on noble goals, but that "in recent years, the United Nations has not reached its full potential because of bureaucracy and mismanagement." "While the United Nations on a regular budget has increased more than 140 percent and its staff has more than doubled since 2000, we are not seeing the results in line with this investment," he said. Trump told U.N. Secretary General António Guterres that he believed blame belonged to his predecessors and that
People are starting to tune out awards shows like the Emmys because they have become so politicized, White House aide Kellyanne Conway said Monday. "It’s — between the Emmys, the Miss America pageant was very politicized. Our sports are very politicized," Conway said on Fox News. "And it looks like the ratings are suffering. It looks like America is responding by tuning out, because they want you to stick to your knitting," she continued. "They want you to, I guess, in this case, read the stuff other people write for you. And so they are welcome to their opinion, but how does it really fit?" Conway said those attending the
Editor’s note: Our coverage of the voter fraud issue, much of it by Fred Lucas, spurs a strong turnout among The Daily Signal’s audience. Today we feature some of those comments. Don’t forget to write us at firstname.lastname@example.org—Ken McIntyre -Dear Daily Signal: I’m a reader from western Pennsylvania expressing my thanks for Fred Lucas’ report on Florida voter fraud and your other efforts to flush out rampant voter fraud in this great country (“Florida Democrat Election Official Admits Noncitizens, Felons Voting”). Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes’ non-efforts to prevent voter fraud are typical of
We´ve had a lot of "bring down Columbus" and other symbols lately. More than that, we just spent $500,000 to remove a Robert E. Lee statue in Dallas at the same time that the police pension is short of cash and the suburbs like Plano are getting all of the relocations from other states. History is ugly but it is also beautiful. The Mayflower is one of those beautiful chapters. This week, we remember one of the most important dates in the history of the New World, the future U.S. and religious freedom. I´m especially fond of the story because
Writer Salena Zito, who is best known for her insightful reporting on Donald Trump and why he won over America´s heartland, has a new piece in the New York Post based on her travels in the industrial heartland, titled, "The Day that Destroyed Youngstown, Ohio." With her always-present humanism and honesty, on Twitter she writes what the story meant to her: I poured my heart into reporting this story. I´m not gonna lie I did cry. "Youngstown sure died hard"
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.
ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and
The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community
Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
The star of HBO´s Insecure proudly spoke about her support for black nominees at the Emmys last night in an awards ceremony that had historic wins for minority stars. ´I´m rooting for everybody black,´ Issa Rae said from the red carpet. ´I am!´ The 32-year-old actress and writer also praised the number of African-Americans recognized for their talents in the TV industry. (Snip) During his speech for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, he said: ´I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. He´s the reason I am probably up here.´
After delivering some rare remarks at a US Air Force event on Friday, First Lady Melania Trump proudly introduced her husband to the stage, no doubt hoping for a congratulatory kiss on the cheek. Instead, she was confronted with an awkward and stern handshake from the President who told her ´thank you´ before ushering her off to the side, muttering: ´You go and sit down now.´ Their interaction, deemed ´bizarre´ for a husband and wife by some, took place at Joint Base Andrews on Friday afternoon. After spending some time at the Maryland base´s youth center with some of the
