Trump’s Obsession With Applause

March 2, 2017 Admin3915 0

It’s no secret that President Trump is obsessed with his own popularity, as measured by polls, ratings and Time magazine covers. But last night, the president revealed that this obsession goes even deeper than his constant tweets about poll numbers would suggest. During his address to Congress on Tuesday night, Mr. Trump paid tribute to Chief Petty Officer William (Ryan) Owens, a Navy SEAL who was killed during a raid in Yemen in January. “Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country and for our freedom,” he said. “We will never forget him.” When the audience gave Carryn Owens, Chief Owens’s widow, a standing ovation, Mr. Trump added, “Ryan is looking down right now, you know that, and he’s very happy, because READ MORE

Donald Trump Keeps Washington Guessing

March 1, 2017 Admin3915 0

And then there was that immigration trial balloon. If nothing else, Donald Trump the showman kept the attention right where he wanted it — squarely on himself. By the time he took the rostrum in the House chamber on Tuesday night for the functional equivalent of a State of the Union address, he had generated considerable suspense around what he would actually say and how it would be received. He boasted of deporting “gang members, drug dealers and criminals,” saying that “bad ones are going out as I speak.” He introduced guests in the first lady’s box whose families had suffered at the hands of criminals in the country illegally. But he talked about “reforming our system of legal immigration,” saying as he has before READ MORE

Kimmel referred to Trump’s calling actress Meryl Streep “overrated” after her anti-Trump speech during the Golden Globe and led the audience in a standing ovation for the actress. “Nice dress, by the way. Is that an Ivanka?” Kimmel asked Streep. Kimmel READ MORE

Donald Trump SILENT over an Indian engineer’s murder in Kansas

February 27, 2017 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump is anything but a man of few words. Especially on Twitter, the US president scarcely restrains himself from reacting to a range of events. In the last few days, for instance, his official Twitter handle @POTUS and personal handle @realDonaldTrump have produced the usual flurry of tweets, covering everything from fake news and the leaking of confidential information to a museum visit and shootings in Chicago. Yet, the voluble president hasn’t uttered a word on the shooting in Kansas that killed 32-year-old Indian techie Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injured two others. Kuchibhotla and his colleague, Alok Madasani, were grabbing a beer at a bar in Olathe when they were attacked by 51-year-old Adam Purinton, who apparently mistook them for Middle Eastern men.

5 Roadblocks Donald Trump’s Economic Plan Could Face In Congress – Fortune

February 24, 2017 Admin3915 0

Steven Mnuchin proved a smooth, persuasive salesman for the Trump economic manifesto in his first television interviews as Secretary of the Treasury on Thursday morning. But his ideas clash with the agendas of powerful Republicans in Congress. To win the backing of the Capitol Hill crowd, the former Goldman Sachs honcho will need to display the kinds of adroit diplomatic skills his boss lacks. Fielding questions on CNBC and Fox Business News, Mnuchin renewed Trump’s pledge to lift annual GDP growth to at least 3% for years to come. As for timing, he predicted that the economy should achieve that pace by the end of 2018. He was conciliatory on trade, the issue that most worries business leaders and traditional conservatives, declaring that he seeks READ MORE

Witches Plan To Cast Mass Spell Against Donald Trump – Huffington Post

February 24, 2017 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump’s presidency has cast a pall over the nation, so now witches are casting a spell against him. A document making its rounds among the witch community is asking people who practice the craft to perform a monthly binding ritual until the president is removed from office. In order to work, the mass spell must be performed at midnight EST on every waning crescent moon. The first one is happening on Friday and will be followed by similar spell cast events on March 26, April 24 and May 23 and beyond. Unless, of course, Trump is cast out of office before then. He stressed that a binding spell is different than a curse or hex. “It’s a restraint, not harm,” Hughes told The Huffington Post. READ MORE

Trump REVERSES Guidelines on transgender bathrooms

February 23, 2017 Admin3915 0

    President Donald Trump’s administration on Wednesday revoked landmark guidance to public schools letting transgender students use the bathroom of their choice, reversing a signature initiative of former Democratic President Barack Obama.   Obama had instructed public schools last May to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms matching their chosen gender identity, threatening to withhold funding for schools that did not comply. Transgender people hailed it as victory for their civil rights.   Trump, a Republican who took office last month, rescinded those guidelines, even though they had been put on hold by a federal judge, arguing that states and public schools should have the authority to make their own decisions without federal interference.   The Justice and Education departments will continue to READ MORE

Here Are All The Favors Donald Trump Has Performed For Wall Street – Huffington Post

February 23, 2017 Admin3915 0

Donald Trump built his presidential campaign around two ideas: 1) a corrupt financial establishment had swindled the middle class, and 2) immigrants and foreigners are dangerous. Some combination of these two sentiments has fueled every American populist movement dating back to President Andrew Jackson. Populists can take credit for plenty of economic progress: child labor laws, universal public education, the eight-hour workday, the abandonment of the gold standard and all modern antitrust and bank regulations. The dark side of populism can be blamed for the Trail of Tears, the Chinese Exclusion Act and the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II. After a month in office, it’s pretty clear which strain of populism Trump takes seriously. He’s ordered the construction of a border wall with Mexico and READ MORE

Here’s Why Donald Trump Won’t Be Watching The Oscars – Huffington Post

February 23, 2017 Admin3915 0

President Donald Trump likely won’t be watching the Academy Awards on Sunday night because, duh. But we’ll let White House press secretary Sean Spicer share the official reason why: I think Hollywood is known for being rather far to the left in its opinions, and I’ve got to be honest with you, I think the president will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night. Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event. And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event, in welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital, and I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.
