    U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said he will not support a resolution to censure President Donald Trump over his comments following a white supremacist rally in Virginia, but said Trump “messed up” by saying “both sides” were to blame for violence and that there were “very fine people” among those marching to protect Confederate statues. Ryan made the comments during a town hall Monday night organized by CNN in his Wisconsin congressional district, after being asked whether he would back the resolution that comes following Trump’s comments about the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The question came from Rabbi Dena Feingold,...

    The Congressional Black Caucus, a formidable bloc of lawmakers with a big say in the fate of President Donald Trump and his legislation, Monday sent him a terse, clear message: We don't think you understand us at all. The caucus' chairman Monday urged cancellation of next month's highly anticipated meeting between White House officials and leaders of the nation's historically black colleges. And he plans to have the 49-member caucus meet when Congress returns in two weeks to discuss whether to back Democratic-led efforts to impeach Trump. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., the caucus chairman, said the president's remarks after the...

    The discussion about Confederate statues is about addition as well as subtraction, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said on Sunday. He told CBS's "Face the Nation" that he favors removing the statue of Robert E. Lee in the U.S. Capitol and replacing it with one of Pocahontas, for example.

    House Dem introduces measure urging Trump undergo mental exam By Cristina Marcos - 08/18/17 04:39 PM EDT A House Democrat introduced a resolution on Friday suggesting that President Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to help determine whether he is fit for office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s (D-Calif.) resolution specifically calls on Vice President Pence and Trump’s Cabinet members to “quickly secure the services of medical and psychiatric professionals” to “assist in their deliberations” invoking the 25th Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures. It posits that such an examination by doctors would “determine whether the president suffers from mental...

    BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) - House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said the departure of White House adviser Steve Bannon is "welcome news," but she is calling on President Donald Trump to fire additional staff. Pelosi said in a statement that Bannon's departure "doesn't disguise where President Trump himself stands on white supremacists and the bigoted beliefs they advance." Trump has said "both sides" are to blame for the clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and counter-protesters last weekend. One woman protesting the far-right extremist groups died when a car drove into a crowd.....

    Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, announced Thursday that he plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump. Cohen cited potential obstruction of justice and violations of the Constitution's Foreign Emoluments Clause as the reasons for impeachment while also addressing his own strong moral opposition to the president's words and actions relating to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.

    Former Vice President Al Gore (D) was asked what advice he had for President Trump. The former Tennessee senator had only one word for the New York Republican: "Resign." Gore said Americans must take a look at the "climate crisis and how we can solve it." "Global warming is by far and away the most serious crisis we face," he said. Gore said there are 100 million tons of man-made pollution released into the atmosphere daily.

    The offer hasn’t even been sent, but Kevin Durant is rejecting it anyway. “Nah, I won’t do that,” Kevin Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, said about the possibility of visiting the White House. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.” Durant told ESPN on Thursday that he would stay away from President Donald Trump, skipping the traditional White House visit that so many championship teams have taken. The team is scheduled to visit Washington on Feb. 28 to take on the Wizards, and if the White House asks Golden State to stop by, Durant will be absent. “I...

    Seizing on the outrage at President Donald Trump's response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) announced Thursday that he is introducing articles of impeachment against the president, saying Trump "has failed the presidential test of moral leadership." Cohen had already expressed that he had no confidence in the president, when he introduced the Resolution of No Confidence last month. “I have expressed great concerns about President Trump’s ability to lead our country in the Resolution of No Confidence (H.Res. 456) that I introduced in July with 29 of my colleagues; however, after the President’s comments on...

    Dame Helen Mirren has never been one to bite her tongue. The 72-year-old Oscar-winning actress gave her thoughts on First Lady Melania Trump and Donald‘s right-hand woman Ivanka in a new interview for the August issue of Allure — and, naturally, didn’t hold back. “[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there’s no substance,” Mirren said. “Her book [Women Who Work] is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about ‘Make time for yourself to have a massage.’ Puh-lease.” As for Ivanka’s father, Mirren says Donald is “less of an extremist than he lets on.” “[Donald] just...

    WASHINGTON House Democrats are introducing a formal resolution to denounce President Donald Trump for saying that “both sides” are to blame for a violent encounter between white supremacists and neo-Nazis and the activists who showed up to protest them. While the censure is unlikely to see traction in the GOP-led House, it serves as a rebuke to Trump and mirrors some of the Republican criticism the president has faced for his remarks. “A president of the United States cannot support neo-Nazis. It’s just beyond the pale,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “I hope...

    Late last week, U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., tweeted that the NRA is increasingly becoming a domestic security threat. Her exact words: I'm just going to say it. #NRA & @DLoesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can't ignore that. Rice’s proclamation does two things: First, it makes her but the latest in a long line of liberal politicians who have decided to attack the NRA instead of dealing with examples of leftist-inspired violence uncovered by the NRA. Secondly, it insults the whole of NRA's membership, as the NRA is not an abstraction but a...

    A Bay Area congresswoman is calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from the presidency under a never-before-used constitutional provision. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, said on Tuesday that Trump should be removed from office with the 25th Amendment, following his latest comments blaming “many sides” for violence after white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va. “POTUS is showing signs of erratic behavior and mental instability that place the country in grave danger,” Speier tweeted Tuesday night. “Time to invoke the 25th Amendment.” Speier also quoted from Voltaire in a tweet: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make...

    More than 30 Democratic House members are moving to pressure the Trump administration to fire employees whom they deem supportive of white supremacy. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) introduced a resolution Tuesday condemning the breakout of violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend during demonstrations by white nationalists, as well as a series of equivocal statements made by President Trump in the immediate aftermath of the violent protest. “When the president fails to swiftly condemn white supremacist terrorism, it’s imperative that Congress steps up and says clearly: Hate is not welcome, hate is un-American and we will strongly resist hate wherever...

    House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called Tuesday for the National Park Service to reconsider its decision to grant a permit to a right-wing group planning a rally at San Francisco’s Crissy Field, and asked whether the gathering had been approved “under guidance from the White House.” Pelosi was reacting to plans by a group called Patriot Prayer to rally Aug. 26 at Crissy Field, which is part of Presidio National Park. The group’s permit was tentatively approved before violence broke out Saturday at a rally of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va.

    President Donald Trump responded to two days’ worth of criticism on Monday by criticizing the white supremacist groups involved in the Charlottesville violence on Saturday explicitly in a statement from the White House. But Trump’s condemnation did not satisfy the mainstream media, some of whom rushed to criticize Trump for not delivering that explicit condemnation as quickly or as passionately as they believe he ought to have done. Trump said: “Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything...
  • Twitter users are reporting Trump's account for 'threatening violence' against North Korea

    Can a president be suspended from Twitter for threatening to attack another country? That's what some Twitter users, including actor and former Barack Obama aide Kal Penn, are demanding, after President Trump tweeted Friday morning that U.S. "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely." Critics of the president's tweet say the rhetoric reflects a threat of violence against North Korea that violates Twitter's rules and terms of service. "Seems pretty clear that you can't threaten mass murder via nuclear war, right @twitter? Asking for 7.4 billion friends," tweeted Penn, along with a...

    Chelsea Handler suggested on Friday that U.S. generals should carry out a military coup to replace President Trump, who she called “our idiot-in-chief.” “To all the generals surrounding our idiot-in-chief…the longer U wait to remove him, the longer UR name will appear negatively in history,” the TV personality wrote on Twitter. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Handler’s comments come as the Trump administration, including the Defense Department, are on heightened alert over a rhetorical battle between President Trump and North Korea. Handler, a Hillary Clinton supporter who cried when the Democrat lost in November, frequently makes controversial statements about Trump. Earlier on Friday she...
