The Case of the Missing President — in House Debates – Roll Call

December 17, 2018 Admin3915 0

OPINION — Judging from two House debates this week in hotly contested races on both sides of the country, you would think that the president of the United States was a shadowy, off-stage figure whose personality and politics are barely worth discussing. Even “The Invisible Man” of the 1897 H.G. Wells novel and the 1933 Claude Rains movie had more of a corporal presence than Donald Trump. During the one-hour debate in Utah’s 4th district in suburban Salt Lake City, the word Trump was not mentioned until the 45-minute mark when the moderator blurted out the president’s name in a question on tariffs. Describing herself as “a free trader,” two-term GOP incumbent Mia Love avoided using the T-word (Trump, not tariffs) while vaguely boasting that she READ MORE

4:14 p.m. As the Washington Post ’s overview points out, it seems clear that Trump’s written answers to Mueller weren’t enough: “Over my dead body,” Giuliani said [about the prospect of Trump sitting down for an interview with Mueller] on “Fox News Sunday.” “But you know, I could be dead.” “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace followed up, pressing Giuliani on whether the special counsel wanted to speak with Trump. Giuliani did not respond directly and instead said he was “disgusted with the tactics they have used in this case.” On ABC News’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Giuliani was asked whether there were ongoing discussions about an interview. He replied that he was “not allowed” to say that. Giuliani added, “The agreement we had READ MORE

Trumphotels.org turned into parody site on Trump immigration policy – Markets Insider

December 12, 2018 Admin3915 0

President Donald Trump. Win McNamee/Getty Images The Trump Organization has long been known to have bought up a slew of domain names associated with President Donald Trump and his family, including URLs containing the phrases “Donald Trump Sucks,” “Im Being Sued By The Donald,” “Ivanka Poker Champion,” and “Play With Donald.” But there’s one domain name the company seems to have overlooked: the innocuous-sounding trumphotels.org . This domain name was registered by an unnamed party sometime last week, according to Gizmodo , and now features a darkly satirical tribute to the Trump administration’s immigration policies, which have drawn widespread criticism and resulted in the separation of more than 2,000 immigrant families in recent months. Visitors to trumphotels.org are greeted with a landing page featuring photos READ MORE

CT Dems say Manafort conviction, Cohen plea, proof of ‘criminality’ in White House – The CT Mirror

December 11, 2018 Admin3915 0

MARK PAZNIOKAS / CTMIRROR.ORG Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort talks to the press after meeting Connecticut delegates in 2016. Washington – Connecticut’s Congressional delegation on Tuesday said the conviction of Paul Manafort, and the plea deal by Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, is proof of “criminality” in the White House. The president, meanwhile, continued to call special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “a witch hunt.” “The White House looks increasingly like a criminal enterprise with the convictions today of President Trump’s former campaign manager and personal lawyer,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. in a statement.  “Paul Manafort today faces, in effect, a life sentence. Michael Cohen should also face serious punishment.” Blumenthal said “no one is above the law – not Paul READ MORE

This Video of Donald Trump Missing a Short Putt and Then Quitting Is a Perfect Metaphor for the Administration – GQ Magazine

December 11, 2018 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump’s administration has been a disaster in so many ways that it’s hard to accurately put into words just how bad things have gotten. You have the lack of any domestic-policy wins for Trump and company, Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia investigation (bye, Manafort!) that seems to finally be bearing fruit, his dick-measuring contest with Kim Jong-un, his use of racist rhetoric, and his constant need to threaten the freedom of the press. How do you sum all that up in a single metaphor? Is it like the Hindenburg disaster? I mean, that’s German, so it definitely captures part of it, but it doesn’t totally work. After all, there was a moment when people thought the Hindenburg would be incredible. The same cannot be said READ MORE

December 10, 2018 Admin3915 0

While the Cavaliers and Warriors played out the end of the fourth quarter, by which time the game was already decided, cameras panned to the stands and zoomed in on players’ faces. They all expressed a sense of confusion. What you didn’t see was that the game was momentarily stopped due to a fan running on the court. The broadcast made the decision to not film this person. Luckily, the security at the Q quickly subdued the running fan and escorted him to the tunnel. But details of the event quickly spread throughout Twitter. The fan took his shirt off, revealing that he painted “TRUMP SUCKS” on his chest. On his back, he wrote “LEBRON 4 PREZ.” The fan is Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, and he has been READ MORE

Late summer polls starting to show possible election results – The Republic

December 3, 2018 Admin3915 0

We are heading into that stretch of the election cycle where distinct trend lines begin to take shape. It was August 1994, 2006 and 2010 when the contours of those wave elections became more recognizable in polling. While voter intensity in polls has been more meaningful up to this point, the congressional generics begin to carry more heft in August and September. The anomaly was the historic 2016 election when many pollsters, pundits and, yes, even Republican nominee Donald Trump himself, were convinced that Hillary Clinton would be the next president. That all changed around 9 on Election Night when the epic Trump upset came into focus. This cycle, President Trump absolutely dominates all things politics. This election will essentially be a referendum on his READ MORE
