Trump’s Lewd Access Hollywood Tape debuts on The Mall in Washington for 12 Hours!
A women’s advocacy group is playing the infamous and lewd “Access Hollywood” video of President Trump on a large screen Friday on the Mall. On repeat. Again and Again. For 12 hours straight.
The demonstration comes the day before the first anniversary of when The Washington Post released the explosive footage, which showed Trump in 2005 bragging in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women. The previously unaired footage was released Oct. 8, 2016, when Trump was the Republican presidential nominee. More from The Washington Post here.
Trump denigrates Mayor Cruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s leadership while golfing at his Bedminister golf resort in New Jersey.
“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,”
Trump wrote on Twitter. In another message, he added that Cruz and other local officials
“want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”
Trump attacks mayor of San Juan, ratcheting up tensions over crisis in Puerto Rico
The exchange of words came as the island is dealing with widespread power outages, while food, drinking water and other basic necessities are in short supply in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. More on this story from The Washington Post here.
Former Chief Strategist Bannon admits Trump is easily duped.
But making that argument — that Trump was duped — also means arguing that he is capable of being duped, and apparently rather easily in this case. Inherent in Bannon’s argument is the idea that Trump either isn’t discerning enough to make that endorsement decision for himself, or at least that he doesn’t do enough homework.
Bannon is basically confirming everything aides have said privately about how unsophisticated Trump is in consuming information. This is the president of the United States, and Bannon is talking about him as if he’s still a total political novice — a weather vane, even.
Trump continues to threaten Hillary Clinton with jail at September Alabama rally!
It is completely insane on many levels for a president to suggest that he would jail his political opponents. Unlike Trump, there is no evidence that Hillary Clinton committed a crime. There is no reason for Clinton to be prosecuted for anything. All she did was win the popular vote over Donald Trump. The President has reached a dangerous level of crazy where he and his rabid cult are demanding the imprisonment of those who oppose them.
This is not democracy. This is not the United States of America.
Trump is off his rocker, and the people all political beliefs who love their country must come together to stop this mentally unstable threat to the nation. More from Politics USA.
Trump campaign manager Manafort offered private briefings to Putin-linked oligarch Deripaska two weeks before Republican nomination!
Less than two weeks before Donald Trump accepted the Republican presidential nomination, his campaign chairman offered to provide briefings on the race to a Russian billionaire closely aligned with the Kremlin, according to people familiar with the discussions. Paul Manafort made the offer in an email to an overseas intermediary, asking that a message be sent to Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate with whom Manafort had done business in the past, these people said.
“If he needs private briefings we can accommodate,”
Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was under secret FISA warrants during and after 2016 campaign, reports allege Manafort encouraged Russians to help with campaign.
Some of the intelligence collected includes communications that sparked concerns among investigators that Manafort had encouraged the Russians to help with the campaign, according to three sources familiar with the investigation. Two of these sources, however, cautioned that the evidence is not conclusive.
The conversations between Manafort and Trump continued after the President took office, long after the FBI investigation into Manafort was publicly known, the sources told CNN. They went on until lawyers for the President and Manafort insisted that they stop, according to the sources.
It’s unclear whether Trump himself was picked up on the surveillance.
Trump’s first 2017 Labor Day message encourages American labor. Here’s a list of Trump products made overseas.
Trump has a long history of outsourcing a variety of his products and has acknowledged doing so. When asked during a Republican primary debate in Miami why voters should trust that Trump “will run the country differently from how you run your businesses,” he answered: “Because nobody knows the system better than me. … I’m a businessman. These are laws. These are regulations. These are rules. We’re allowed to do it. … I’m the one that knows how to change it.”
Impeachment numbers are on the rise for Trump, now at 40% among Americans, before last weekend’s Charlottesvilles comments.
The jump in support for impeachment since Trump’s first month in office is attributable to increased opposition to the president from Democrats and independents. Since February, the share of Democrats saying they support impeachment jumped from 58 percent to 72 percent, while the share of independents advocating for Trump’s removal from office increased from 27 percent to 38 percent. But the share of Republicans who agree has remained virtually unchanged in the single digits. More from NBC News here.
Historians dispute Trump’s claim Trump National Golf Club is situated on historic section of river crossing known as ‘The River of Blood’ in Potomac River.
The plaque, which is attached to a flagpole on a stone pedestal overlooking the Potomac, reads: “Many great American soldiers, both of the North and South, died at this spot. The casualties were so great that the water would turn red and thus became known as ‘The River of Blood.’ It is my great honor to have preserved this important section of the Potomac River!” More from Rolling Stone here.
President Trump has been exposed as a known pathological liar. Does anyone really believe this ridiculous claim?
