Former McCain aide Steve Schmidt:
Trump´s ´impairment is chilling´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Joe Concha

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 11:07:21 AM

Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) former presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday that President Trump was "clearly slurring his words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is chilling." "I don’t know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an

Comments:
These loser hacks are really tiresome. His behavior is reckless and irresponsible. On Laura Ingraham´s show this morning Lewandowski and Bossie appeared and Corey made an stinging comment regarding the vile Schmidt. Schmidt came to Trump Tower two times begging for a job with the campaign.Trump said he was not interested because he really did a bang-up job with the McCain campaign so he would take a pass. Ouch. Schmidt is pathetic, incompetent loser whose ego was smashed by Trump. His behavior sure doesn´t help is image.

Leave it to "The Hill" to seek out these losers to interview over their hatred of Donald. Lucky for us, as they dig deeper and deeper into these childish tricks, more and more people who sat on the sidelines are paying attention and seeing this for what it is. I believe there is a revolution going on right now that the screaming left can not fathom.

I believe Steve Schmidt was the guy on the McCain presidential campaign who trashed Sarah Palin and her family. He has no credibility with me. None.

As far as the slurred speech is concerned, I believe Mr. Trump might have been experiencing trouble with his dental work. That was what they were saying on WIND AM 560 in Chicago.

I just watched the President´s speech on Jerusalem, it is twelve and one half minutes long and you should watch it too. The press lies, it lies all the time and about everything. Do not trust anything reported by it. I didn´t know that Congress passed a law in 1995 to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, did you?

McCain is becoming weaker and weaker. His surrogates will be all over the landscape. We can ignore them. I imagine many others will as well.

An example of how esoteric a lot of what we see here really is: I had never heard of The Hill before I came to LCom.

I have long despised McCain, but I absolutely LOATHE this guy. He is a loser, I don´t believe he has ever run a successful campaign for national office for any candidate, and he dares to speak on subjects he knows nothing about.

He and Nicole Wallace are the mental zombie version of Carville and Matalin. At least those two keep it civil and they are still very much married. Wallace and Schmidt were a very bad couple of campaign managers and they prove it over and over.

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Roger Goodell’s NFL contract is a slap

The decision by the NFL Compensation Committee on Wednesday to give Commissioner Roger Goodell a five-year contract extension that could top out at nearly $40 million a year is pure craziness. NFL owners are watching their brand implode and TV ratings for games plummet under a reckless commissioner – and they fail to see that Goodell is running the wrong game plan. Giving Goodell a huge compensation package like this – 90 percent of it tied to incentives – is like giving Hillary Clinton an award for outstanding email practices and honesty.

Hillary Clinton´s Russia collusion

If the media are defining “collusion” as President Trump’s team being willing to accept potentially beneficial information from Russia in the 2016 election, all future cable news analysis on the issue should include a disclaimer: Hillary Clinton’s campaign did precisely the same thing and more! There is no real consensus about what any collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia would have entailed (which is helpful for Democrats and self-interest-driven Republicans like Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in maintaining a scandalous fog over the White House) but news reports typically discuss it with ominous references to campaign advisers and aides who had any

The FBI has put to bed a controversy whipped up by liberal critics of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with foreign officials including Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 presidential campaign. An FBI email released through the Freedom of Information Act said that Sessions had no obligation to reveal any contacts with foreign officials unless he “developed personal relationships” with them. The bottom line: His two contacts with Kislyak in 2016 did not have to be revealed to the FBI on his SF-86 security clearance application, part of his confirmation process. Sessions has repeatedly denied that he

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday.

Rep. Hakeen Jeffries (D-N.Y.) blasted President Trump’s Friday campaign rally in Pensacola, Fla., in a tweet Saturday, labeling it a “hatefest.” The tweet also appeared to blast Roy Moore, the GOP Senate candidate in Alabama, as "a racially insensitive homophobe." “Is he referring to the HATEFEST on the Alabama border designed to bolster a racially insensitive homophobe?” Jeffires tweeted. (Snip) Trump’s rally came just days before the Alabama special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat. While the White House maintained Trump wouldn’t go to Alabama to campaign for Moore, the Pensacola rally took place just miles away

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has sabotaged his own investigation of Russian meddling into the 2016 election. He has only himself to blame for ruining what could have been a credible probe. (Snip) Because Mueller improperly stacked the deck of his special counsel staff with biased crusaders, he transformed what was supposed to be an impartial investigation into an illegitimate and seemingly corrupt one. To restore integrity, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should un-recuse himself from the case for the limited purpose of cleaning up Mueller’s mess. There is no law that prevents the attorney general from doing this. Sessions should remove all of

Then the Washington Post published allegations of Roy Moore courting a young teenager 38 years ago in Alabama. That sent the liberal media on a frenzied attack against Judge Moore.

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.

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.

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

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

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

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday.

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
