A Democratic lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives berated President Trump for not spending enough time with his 11-year-old son, Barron. Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) made the disgusting charge on New Year´s Eve -- when Trump, first lady Melania and Barron were all actually attending a party together. ´He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron," Cohen wrote on Twitter. "You´d think he´d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show." (Tweet) Cohen -- among a group of Democratic
This jackwagon should be hounded out of Congress. Where was his morality when Obamboozer was running all over the country golfing (if you call it that) with his buddies. What a pathetic, despicable excuse for a human being.
President Trump is sorta´ busy during the day. as most father´s are. At some point in the day he retreats to the White House residence. There he spends time with his family. What you don´t see doesn´t mean he is not a solid family man. I think otherwise. You don´t see lot of Barron which is fine. He goes to school and likely has homework. I believe the Trumps keep Barron away from the prying eyes and ears of the media so he isn´t spied on or ridiculed for whatever nasty, mean thing they can come up with. Congressman Cohen, how much time do you spend with your children?????? Ah sure, I know, you have a job that keeps you busy. Silly me!
I´m not familiar with Rep. Cohen, so I did a quick web search... he´s pro-abortion (no surprise, since he´s a "D"), and if he has kids, he doesn´t make any mention of it on his website, nor is there anything in a quick web search.
Is he a noted authority on family relationships, or does he just pontificate like one?
(My mother had SERIOUS misgivings about voting for Trump, particularly after the Billy Bush surfaced. But the alternative was Hillary... she ended up voting for Trump based on how close he seemed to his children, and how well-reared they seemed to be.)
There is a big difference between President Trump´s golfing outings and a lot of former President Obama´s golfing outings. Trump appears to only golf on weekends and while he is on vacation. Obama used to golf on weekday (federal workday) afternoons while in DC, and also on weekends and while he was on vacation. I can see where congress critters could complain when the President takes off during afternoons on federal workdays and goes golfing, but not on weekends and while the President is on vacation.
The President´s children should be out of bounds, unless they somehow violate the law and are arrested.
Few people are aware that Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen majored in Body Language in the remedial high school he is alleged to have attended. Cohen minored in Crystal Ball Gazing. His hobby is said to be Palm Reading. But only Left Palms.
Presidents get holidays and weekend respites. Trump does not take a salary, plays golf at his golf course. And by the way, Barron was there, along with the rest of the Trump family. PDT will go down in history and one of our greatest presidents, Obama will go down as a traitor and the worst.
A 64-year-old man, a paternity test, and the young woman he thought was his daughter -- no, that isn’t the tagline for an episode of “Maury” but a peculiar development in the life of Tennessee Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen.
Cohen, a prolific tweeter, was discovered corresponding with a 24-year-old aspiring model while sitting in the House chamber during the president’s State of the Union address in February. The tweets, thanking the woman for watching the speech, wishing her a happy Valentine’s Day, and telling her he loved her, were soon deleted -- but not before raising many eyebrows. Cohen later explained that the woman was Victoria Brink, whom he had discovered just a few years earlier was his daughter.
But as it turned out, the congressman didn’t do his homework. He said he learned about the daughter when Google-searching for an ex-girlfriend and found out she had a child; as he has described to NBC News at the time, “the math looked pretty accurate.” He also told NBC that he corresponded with the young woman’s mother, who told him they had “a lot of catching up to do.” He also mentioned that he took Brink on a tour of the Capitol and was proud to be her father.
A paternity test released Thursday, however, proved Cohen’s Google “discovery” to be false.
Homely as a mud fence and single. Cohen doesn’t seem the type any woman would have even a one-nighter with. Photo with article proves my point:
The real father of the young woman whom Rep. Steve Cohen thought was his daughter said Thursday he had no idea the lawmaker even knew his ex-wife and was “rocked” by his claims of paternity.
In an interview with POLITICO, John Brink said while he wasn’t aware his ex-wife, Texas lawyer Cynthia Sinatra, knew the Tennessee Democrat, he put the blame for the fatherhood controversy squarely on her, not Cohen.
“How could I get mad at him? I don’t see it as his fault, I see it as my ex-wife’s fault,” said Brink, president of Houston-based Environment & Energy Group. “I wasn’t aware that they know each other.”
Brink said he learned of the possible connection between his daughter, Victoria Brink, and Cohen only when the congressman was caught tweeting at her during the State of the Union address earlier this year. Cohen at the time claimed Brink was his daughter.
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), a ´´black´´ white man from Memphis has such a mental block, there is no room for a brain, no matter how small. Being assaulted by Cohen, or in this case a nasty-gram word salad tossed at a child, is like being called ugly by a frog. Barron Trump has more class in his shoelaces than Cohen will ever achieve.
(As to where has Cohen been during the recent Obamanation, he was attached to Obama´s backside.)
If you are from TN, you know this guy is a maximum sleazeball, much less from Memphis. I, like many East Tennesseans wonder how sleazeballs like this get elected. But then again, we have Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker from East TN. Sleazeballs for sure, but not as bad as this idiot. Hopefully, we Tennesseans can get rid of all of them soon and get back to the days of Davy Crockett, Cordell Hull, Howard Baker, Fred Thompson and the like. I am reluctant to suggest others for fear of retribution. LOL
The way I hear it, Barron and the President golf together regularly and I hear the Kid´s almost better than the old man. So much for not spending time with his son. And just for my own edification, did Abu bin Bama ever spend time with his kids that didn´t include a $100 Million vacation with some shaved ice photo ops?
President Donald Trump boasted that the Democrats were giving him a political gift after they voted against a bill that would fund the government late Friday night. “This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present,” Trump wrote on Twitter with the hashtag #DemocratShutdown. Trump challenged Democrats for focusing more on amnesty for illegal immigrants than funding the government. “Democrats are far more concerned with Illegal Immigrants than they are with our great Military or Safety at our dangerous Southern Border,” he wrote. “They could have easily made a deal but decided
President Trump on Saturday acknowledged the thousands of people taking part in Women´s March demonstrations across the country, saying it was a "beautiful" day for people to "celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success" under his term. In a tweet acknowledging the marches, which were planned for the one-year anniversary of Trump entering office and aimed primarily at protesting his rhetoric and policies, Trump urged people to focus on economic successes since he became president. "Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March. Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones
Many of the country’s top media outfits blamed the Democratic Party for allowing the government to shutdown instead of bridging a budget impasse with Republicans in the Senate. “U.S. Shutdown Starts as Senate Democrats Block GOP Funding Plan” a Bloomberg headline blared early Saturday morning, referring to the Senate’s inability to agree on a variety of budgetary issues. The New York Times and AP chimed in with similar headlines. Republican and Democratic leaders have not stopped talking through their differences. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, for instance, said late Friday night that the conflict has a “really
As previously reported, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a blistering statement late Friday night on the Senate Democrats blocking funding the federal government in favor of amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients. The Trump administration is putting America first and the Senate Democrats dug in their heels Friday night, shutting down the government in favor of illegal aliens. The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49. (Photo) The Schumer Shutdown went in to effect shortly after midnight Saturday. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went
Deep State stalwart James Clapper provably lied to Congress on a matter of substantive importance, yet he was never charged with perjury. In less than two months, the statute of limitations will excuse him from any criminal liability if he is not charged with lying to Congress. Jonathan Turley, a liberal law professor who is honest, explains the outrageous process by which a "made man" (his term) escapes prosecution for crimes that less connected others would be imprisoned for committing.

Citng an unnamed source, Variety magazine is claiming “exclusive” news that President Donald Trump will break the tradition of presidents giving pre-game Super Bowl interviews on the game-broadcasting networks. The “person familiar” with the news told Variety, exclusively, that Trump declined NBC’s request for an interview, even though he gave a pre-game interview last year: “The White House has at present, according to a person familiar with the matter, indicated to NBC News that President Donald Trump will not take part in a recent Super Bowl ritual: a pre-game interview between the commander-in-chief and the news unit of the network
President Donald Trump spoke live via satellite at the March for Life in Washington, DC, on Friday, thanking pro-life activists for marching against abortion.“The March for Life is a movement born out of love,” Trump said. “You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation, and you love every child, born and unborn, because you believe that every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God. We know that life is the greatest miracle of all.”The president spoke from the Rose Garden surrounded by pro-life activists and even a few parents holding their
Five Democratic senators from states won by President Trump in the 2016 presidential election introduced legislation Friday to withhold pay from members of Congress in the event of a government shutdown. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Jon Tester (Mont.), Debbie Stabenow (Mich.) and Joe Manchin (W.Va.), all of whom are up for reelection this year, announced the bill Friday, hours ahead of a government funding deadline. “If members of Congress can’t fulfill their basic duty to keep the government open and provide the essential services Americans depend on, then they don’t deserve their paychecks,” Heitkamp said in a
Acting ICE Director Tom Homan hit back Thursday at California´s Democratic senators, who criticized his agency over reports of planned immigration sweeps in the sanctuary state. Local law enforcement officials have reportedly stated they will not assist ICE in raids aimed at apprehending 1,500 illegal immigrants in northern California. California Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris wrote a letter to the agency, asking for a briefing on the raids. They argued the action would be "an abhorrent abuse of power" and a diversion of resources to "score political points" and "punish" the state for its policies toward illegal immigrants. Homan
President Trump argued Friday that a partial shutdown of the federal government is on the horizon because Senate Democrats refuse to support a continuing resolution, and said voters should send more Republicans to Congress in November as a result. "Government Funding Bill past last night in the House of Representatives. Now Democrats are needed if it is to pass in the Senate - but they want illegal immigration and weak borders. Shutdown coming? We need more Republican victories in 2018!" Trump tweeted Friday morning. (Tweet) The House passed a spending bill late Thursday that would keep the government open through Feb.
The Democrats’ 2018 chances will be damaged by the government shutdown if voters blame the Democrats’ pro-amnesty agenda, a Washington Post report admitted Thursday evening. The good news for President Donald Trump and the bad news for amnesty-advocates was buried in the last paragraph of the article, which is based on a poll conducted for Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer: If Democrats can make this looming shutdown about Trump and his ability to govern, they will be in a strong position to win the fight nationally and help the “Big Five [Democratic Senators]” hold their own. If Republicans can make
The acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), former congressman Mick Mulvaney, has submitted a budget request that may be a first in the history of government. The CFPB is an independent agency that recieves its funding from the Federal Reserve. The director must submit a budget request to the Fed every quarter. The most recent budget request came from former director Richard Cordray, an Obama appointee. Cordray asked the Fed for $217 million. But Mulvaney shocked official Washington by making a budget request for zero dollars. That´s $0.00 in taxpayer funds.
A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
After leaving office, President Ronald Reagan created the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award to recognize individuals who have fought to spread liberty worldwide. Nancy Reagan continued the tradition after her husband’s death, and in 2008 she bestowed the honor on human rights icon Natan Sharansky, who credited Reagan’s strong defense of freedom for his own survival in Soviet gulags. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used it to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world. President Donald Trump does not seem to understand that his rhetoric and actions reverberate in
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
The House Intel panel’s passage of New York Republican Rep. Peter King’s motion to release the FISA abuse memo to fellow House members has rocked Washington, D.C. (Photo) Lawmakers from Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) have called for the classified memo’s immediate release. According to Fox News contributor Sara Carter, the contents of the memo are so “explosive,” that it could end special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe once and for all.Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino warned the release of the FISA report will destroy the image of his former boss Barack Obama.“Take it to
California lawmakers are targeting the expected windfall companies in the state would see under the federal tax overhaul with a bill that would require businesses to turn over half to the state. A proposed Assembly Constitutional Amendment by Assemblymen Kevin McCarty, D -Sacramento and Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, would create a tax surcharge on California companies making more than $1 million so that half of their federal tax cut would instead go to programs that benefit low-income and middle class families.
Former FBI director James B. Comey is joining the faculty of his alma mater, the College of William & Mary, and plans to teach a course on ethical leadership at the school’s Washington center starting in the fall. Comey, whom President Trump fired last year, will have a nontenured position as an executive professor in education, the school announced Friday. His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.
During his town hall tour across Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given explicit notice to pro-life Canadians that their beliefs on abortion make them second-class citizens. (Snip) According to the article, Trudeau warned that "an organization that has the explicit purpose of restricting women´s rights by removing rights to abortion, the right for women to control their own bodies, is not in line with where we are as a government and quite frankly where we are as a society." According to Trudeau, his tongue-lashing of pro-life groups was prompted by responses to a change to who can receive grants as
Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,
More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to
Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. According to the Daily News, the police
