    President Trump called out CNN’s Van Jones during a black leadership summit for not thanking him for his achievements in criminal justice reform. Speaking to an audience attending the Young Black Leadership Summit held at the White House Friday, the president took a shot at Jones and MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton when he got to the topic of the much-lauded bipartisan criminal justice reform bill that was passed last year. “So Van Jones was on about two weeks ago, and he came to me, and I am telling you, he was so nice,” Trump said at the summit hosted...
  • CNN Upset Over Mexican Cooperation with Trump on Border Control

    CNN is upset because President Donald Trump's border control policies are working so well thanks in large part to the cooperation of the Mexican government. And it is that cooperation with Mexico that also irks Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from whom it is obvious CNN got many of their talking points. Oddly enough, however, CNN while being upset with Mexico, also concedes that Trump's border policies are working well. You can see that suprising concession in the very title of their Sunday story by Catherine Shoichet and Natalie Gallón (with talking points lifted from Jorge Ramos), "Why some say Mexico already...
  • Tucker Carlson: Outrage over Trump's Syria decision shows Washington's perverse priorities

    Finally, some good news from Washington. That doesn't happen very often. Over the weekend, the Trump administration announced plans to withdraw the remaining American troops that are still stationed in Northern Syria. Of countless decisions Donald Trump has announced via Twitter, you'd think this would be the least controversial of all. There's no reason for Americans to remain in Syria. ISIS no longer controls the cities there. We have no plans to overthrow the Assad government either. So, there's no longer a mission, and yet Syria remains a dangerous place. Five Americans have been killed there just this year, and...

    Nobel-prize winning economist Robert Shiller believes a recession may be years away due to a bullish Trump effect in the market. According to the Yale University professor, President Donald Trump is creating an environment that’s conducive to strong consumer spending, and it’s a major force that should hold off a recession. Before the markets can take-off, Shiller stresses President Trump needs to get past the impeachment inquiry. He sees this as the biggest threat to his optimistic forecast. Yet, he’s sticking with the idea that the economy and markets should have a lot of runway left for gains if President...
  • Maddow’s latest crystal ball reading: Putin ‘ordered’ Trump to withdraw from Afghanistan

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow – a pioneer of Putin-ate-my-homework journalism – has predictably mused that Donald Trump is considering pulling troops out of Afghanistan on the orders of Russia’s president. The evidence speaks for itself. In segment on her critically-acclaimed show, “Watch Me Scream ‘Russia’ Until I Dislocate My Jaw”, Maddow made an adroit observation of seismic proportions: Reports that Donald Trump is mulling a partial withdrawal from Afghanistan emerged only hours after Vladimir Putin said that the US keeps promising to leave the country but never does! In layman’s terms: Putin ordered Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan, during...

    The New York Times is clamping down on its reporters appearing on opinionated cable news shows to avoid the appearance of “bias.” The newspaper recently blocked its finance editor David Enrich from appearing on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show to talk about his reporting on President Trump’s finances and Deutsche Bank, according to according to Vanity Fair. The paper has also placed Lawrence O'Donnell’s show on MSNBC and Don Lemon’s show on CNN on its blacklist. “In deciding whether to make a radio, television or Internet appearance, a staff member should consider its probable tone and content to make sure they are...

    FULL TITLE: Bolton wanted White House lawyers alerted to Ukrainian efforts, called it 'drug deal,' witness tells Congress ============================================ Former national security adviser John Bolton was so disturbed by the efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate President Donald Trump’s political opponents that he called it a “drug deal,” former White House official Fiona Hill reportedly told Congress on Monday. Hill, the former top Europe expert in Trump’s White House, testified that Bolton told her he wanted no part of the effort that involved acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, a person in the room for Hill’s testimony...

    A former GOP county chairman and Ohio farmer said Monday he wouldn't vote for President Trump again even if the president walked on water. Chris Gibbs, the former chairman of the Shelby County Republican Party, told CNBC that he feels "dubious" about the Trump administration's announced agricultural buys from China amounting to $40 billion to $50 billion amid the heated trade war between Washington and Beijing that experts say has hit farmers particularly hard. "He could come up with this $50 billion, he could walk across my pond and not get wet, and I'm still not going to vote for...

    Do Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump want John Bolton to offer a deposition to House Democrats? One might think that, under the circumstances, the president and his attorney might want to lower the temperature with Trump’s former national security adviser after Fiona Hill’s testimony. Instead, Giuliani wasted no time in trolling Bolton over Hill’s reports about his reaction to Giuliani’s work in Ukraine.His conversation with New York Magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi wasn’t too bad: I asked Rudy Giuliani, “If you had to describe yourself as a weapon other than a hand grenade what weapon would you be?” Giuliani responded, “I’m...

    A new report about the relationship between President Donald Trump and Fox News alleges that hosts Chris Wallace and Martha MacCallum criticized and mocked Trump during a closed-door meeting last month. Fox News hosts Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, and Martha MacCallum attended an event in Manhattan to assure advertisers that “Trump doesn’t own” them, according to a piece published Sunday in the New York Times. The Times report continues: “‘Contrary to the opinion of some people, he’s not our boss,’ Ms. MacCallum said, marveling at Mr. Trump’s criticism of Fox News for airing interviews with Democratic presidential candidates. ‘It is...

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Biden’s recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. “Bloomberg is in if Biden is out,” says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. “I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that,” one of...

He began by talking about Wells Fargo’s struggle to find a new CEO. “I still wonder what it’s like to have no CEO. In the end, I know, Elizabeth Warren don’t listen, I favor...

    Campaign's attempt to berate the press, squelch stories has so far shown only modest payoff Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden has shown flimsy fealty to the facts in his own political career, but his campaign is now fighting to be the arbiter of truth, lobbying media outlets to squelch stories and refuse ads he says stretch the truth. His campaign asked networks to stop booking Trump ally Rudolph W. Giuliani and then tried to organize a boycott of a Trump campaign ad by accusing the president of lying about Mr. Biden’s actions to try to get a Ukrainian prosecutor...

    Former NBC News employee Brooke Nevils claims in a new book that Matt Lauer raped her in a hotel room in 2014, a report said Wednesday. The journalist discloses the sexual assault allegation in Ronan Farrow’s “Catch and Kill,” which describes how the former “Today” show host allegedly anally raped her in the hotel room during the network’s coverage of the Sochi Olympics, according to Variety.

  • NBC News chief Andy Lack preyed on female employees for sex: report

    NBC News chief Andrew Lack — once accused of mishandling sexual harassment complaints at the Peacock Network — preyed on female underlings and pursued sexual relationships with them, according to one of his alleged victims. Lack’s alleged behavior is detailed in Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book, “Catch and Kill” — an excerpt of which was obtained Wednesday by The Post. In it, Jane Wallace, an anchor on CBS’s “West 57th” news show when Lack was an executive producer in the late 1980s, discussed her affair with the then-married news man. Lack, 72, a close friend of ousted “Today” show anchor Matt...

    In Sochi, Nevils was tasked with working with former “Today” co-anchor Meredith Vieira, who’d been brought back to the show to do Olympics coverage. In her account, one night over drinks with Vieira at the hotel bar where the NBC News team was staying, they ran into Lauer, who joined them. At the end of the night, Nevils, who’d had six shots of vodka, ended up going to Lauer’s hotel room twice — once to retrieve her press credential, which Lauer had taken as a joke, and the second time because he invited her back. Nevils, Farrow writes, “had no...

    The questionable actions of former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former CIA director John Brennan have made it impossible for Americans to trust the country’s intelligence apparatuses and created a sense of extreme skepticism, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said during an interview that aired Sunday. Johnson appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” and got into a heated debate with host Chuck Todd over House Democrats’ impeachment efforts and various intelligence community abuses. The GOP senator said there still were unanswered questions when asked if he thought Russia interfered in the 2016 election. “They absolutely...
