Previously on White House Apprentice, Donald Trump showed once again that he is a bumbling idiot. While honoring Navajo veterans at a White House event Monday, he referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.” In doing so, he may have provided yet another way for Congress to impeach him.
Steve “Chompers” Harvey — who famously met with Donald Trump earlier this year and then spent the next several months caping for the monster that is in the highest position in the country — now says he should have listened to his wife and skipped the meeting entirely, according to a recent interview.
Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed to oversee the investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, has impaneled a grand jury in Washington, D.C., a clear indication that the investigation may in fact be yielding actual fruit and moving full-speed ahead.
My money is on new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. From my latest commentary on The Root:
Although Jeff Sessions has done everything in his power to prove he is still loyal to the head diva in charge, Trump still did talking heads and Twitter threads hinting that he wants him gone. Your president does not appreciate backstabbing and wavering fealty, which is why I am worried that the next person to be kicked out of the house, if not Sessions, will be new Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Where are your president’s handlers when he needs them? Does he even have handlers? Is there anyone in the White House that is in charge of making sure he doesn’t say stupid stuff to the media he is so critical of? Apparently not, because this latest thing is a doozy.
Cedric L. Richmond, Democratic Representative from New Orleans and chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, wrote a three-page letter Wednesday to Donald Trump declining his invitation to meet with the CBC and outlining the many reasons why the group as a whole is saying no.
Daniel Coats, Director of National Intelligence, told associates in March that Donald Trump asked him to intervene with then-FBI Director James Comey and get him to have the bureau back off of its investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his ties to Russia.
Rumor has it that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has had about enough of your president, and he’s threatening to quit his job and go back to Alabama where he doesn’t have to put up with shit like this. My fingers are crossed that this is indeed happening so that we don’t have to put up with anymore of Jeff Sessions’ bullshit either. It’s way past time for him to go.
It looks like Former FBI Director James Comey’s public testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee is a go, and could happen as early as next week. Comey will be confirming what we all already know: your president attempted to obstruct a federal investigation.
Former CIA Director John Brennan testified on Tuesday that his agency alerted the FBI to a troubling pattern of contacts between Russian officials and Trump campaign associates last year, adding himself to the long list of people who have expressed suspicions or concerns about the President’s Russian connections.
Donald Trump’s new budget proposal will be reveals that he really and truly hates poor people. It comes with major cuts to Medicaid and changes to anti-poverty programs that would allow states to limit a range of benefits for needy families, something that Congress has already been uneasy about.
The Washington Post is reporting that in his capacity as president, Donald Trump reportedly asked two high-ranking national intelligence officials in March to help him push back against the FBI investigation into possible connections between his presidential campaign and the Russian government.
