Trump hires man who has been sued for voter suppression to review for voter suppression as vice chair of election integrity commission.
The Vice Chair of Donald Trump’s new “election integrity” commission has been successfully sued four times for voter suppression, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Kris Kobach led restrictive voting initiatives that targeted minorities and perpetuated voter suppression, the not-for-profit legal advocacy group said.
Mr Trump signed an executive order establishing the commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the American election system. More from the Independent UK.
Journalist asks Twitter followers to describe Trump in two words, and the Internet goes crazy!
I recently asked readers of my Twitter account to describe the first 100 days of the Trump administration in two words. More than 2,000 readers responded, and while many of the responses were profane — and some didn’t quite follow the prompt — a trend among the replies was evident: Americans, or at least the 100,000 or so who follow my Twitter feed, have almost nothing positive to say about the current occupant of the White House.
Below I’ve listed several hundred of the responses I received to my query. Be warned: graphic language abounds here, and avid Trump supporters may find themselves repeatedly triggered.

Administration press secretary Spicer falsely points to Atlanta terrorism attack which never happened on three separate occasions while Trump fights high courts for enforcement of travel ban.
Here’s what Spicer told ABC’s “This Week” on January 29 while defending the President’s travel ban:
“What do we say to the family who loses somebody over a terroristic (sic) — to whether it’s Atlanta or San Bernardino or the Boston bomber? Those people, each of whom had gone out to a country and then come back.”
And Spicer continued to refer to the false attack two additional times on separate occasions. Watch the video here.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed claims that the Kremlin meddled in the presidential race—characterizing it as “ridiculous” and “just another excuse.”
December 16, 2016
While Trump has repeatedly dismissed claims that the Kremlin meddled in the presidential race—characterizing it as “ridiculous” and “just another excuse”—President Barack Obama has vowed to retaliate against Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, who is believed to have been directly involved in the hacking effort. “I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections … we need to take action. And we will—at a time and place of our own choosing,” Obama said in an interview with NPR that will air on Friday. “Some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be.” Read more here now.
January 2016 Update:
Trump continues to to deny all evidence of Russian hacking. Over the Christmas holiday New Year’s week, he states he has private information, a revelation he intends to release to the American public regarding the Russian hacking. He seems to have America on the edge of their seats as we wait for Trump to divulge this private information. Will he or won’t he, and how will this revelation affect his presidential image going forward? Is the revelation just another showman stunt, more Trump nonsense to dominate and control the media?
