President Donald Trump and Sen. Dianne Feinstein share a moment during a meeting with bipartisan members of Congress at the Cabinet Room of the White House. Alex Wong/Getty Images At the very end of a lengthy, televised White House meeting on gun legislation, during which President Trump seemed to endorse just about every idea that Democratic attendees had thrown at him, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein tried to press her luck. She asked Trump what to do about “weapons of war,” the phrase Democrats are using interchangeably for “assault weapons” like the AR-15. Though the president wouldn’t outright support a ban on such weapons, he did give a fatherly look and finger wag to Sens. Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey and instruct them “to discuss that READ MORE

Donald Trump Gets a Lesson From That ‘Very Bad Judge’

March 1, 2018 Admin3915 0

Mr. Trump, who refuses to be held to account for anything he has ever said or done, was irked that a federal judge would dare to entertain litigation against him. At a rally in San Diego, Mr. Trump called Judge Curiel “very hostile,” “a very bad judge” and a “hater of Donald Trump,” and said he “should be ashamed of himself. I think it’s a disgrace that he’s doing this.” He added that Judge Curiel “happens to be, we believe, Mexican.” Not true: Judge Curiel was born and raised in Indiana. But the implication, of course, was that Mr. Trump, who had begun his own candidacy with derogatory comments about Mexicans and had been pushing a border wall with Mexico throughout the campaign, could not READ MORE

Forty-seven percent, including three-quarters of blacks, think they’ve been bad for African Americans. Fifty-seven percent of all adults, including more than 8 in 10 blacks, three-quarters of Hispanics and nearly half of whites, said they think Trump is racist.

Donald Trump’s public shaming of Jeff Sessions is shameful

March 1, 2018 Admin3915 0

Tweeted Trump : “Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!” Here’s what is actually disgraceful: The president of the United States is engaged in a one-sided smear effort against the man who, less than 18 months ago, he nominated to be the top law enforcement official in the country. There’s more. But let’s take it out of the context of a president talking about his attorney general. If a boss treated an employee this way — denigrating him publicly, saying he would never have hired him if he knew READ MORE

March 1, 2018 Admin3915 0

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director who has been part of President Donald Trump’s inner circle since joining his campaign in 2016, said Wednesday she is resigning. Hicks has been considering leaving for several months, the New York Times reported. At 29, she is the youngest person in Trump’s inner circle and one of its strongest leaders. In September, she succeeded Anthony Scaramucci after he spent less than two weeks as communications director following an expletive-filled interview he gave to The New Yorker . Hicks, one of Trump’s longest serving advisers, said she’ll leave in the coming weeks. Her announcement comes one day after appearing before the House Intelligence Committee as part of the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. “There READ MORE
