  • Trump’s ..Manager: ‘There Was A Sexual Assaulter In The White House. He Was Called Bill Clinton’

    "That's the sexual assaulter she should be talking about in the White House." Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski fired back at Hillary Clinton on Saturday after Clinton called President Donald Trump “a sexual assaulter.” Clinton, who for five days had kept silent on the scandal that enveloped Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood executive and big-time donor to her own campaigns, spoke about Weinstein and Trump during a BBC interview. “This kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics — after all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office — there...
  • Trump Head, Pence Tail

    If a metaphor could be used for this White House, it might be a two-sided coin with President Trump the head and Vice President Mike Pence the tail. The president tends toward the bombastic to get people's attention and make his points, while his vice president is calm and measured in his response to questions, sometimes resembling a contemplative monk. In many ways, they complement each other. During an interview Thursday, the vice president said tax reform is now the administration's top domestic priority and that "we have the best opportunity between now and the end of the year to...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Pittsburgh Penguins view their trip to the White House on Tuesday as the final moment of celebration for a championship season, not some sort of statement about where they stand on President Donald Trump. ''From my side of things, there's absolutely no politics involved,'' Crosby said Monday. ''Hopefully it stays that way. It's a visit we've done in the past. It's been a good experience. It's not about politics, that's for sure.'' At least, it hasn't been. Yet the Penguins have found themselves unwittingly thrust into the increasingly uncomfortable intersection of...

    Bold tax reform got a big boost on Wednesday. Leaders in the House, the Senate, and the White House have all agreed on a tax outline, meaning a true update to our broken tax system could be imminent. First, the GOP tax plan framework would lower taxes for individual Americans. It would double the standard deduction for individuals and thereby expand the zero-percent bracket, and it would create three income tax brackets (down from seven): 12, 25, and 35 percent, respectively. Most simply, this will allow all Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. Importantly, the...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon thinks NFL players should be kneeling to thank God for President Trump rather than protesting during the national anthem. "If people in this country take a knee and the national football league players want to take a knee, they should take a knee at night, every night, and thank God in heaven Donald J. Trump is president of the United States," Bannon told Fox News on Monday. "He has saved this country so much grief. He has done such a tremendous job with virtually no help," Bannon continued.

    A man arrested near the White House Sunday morning is a former Memphis police officer who had an arsenal of weapons in his car and believed the CIA had implanted a chip in his head, according to court documents.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — A federal judge ordered a young woman charged with leaking classified U.S. documents to remain jailed until her trial after prosecutors argued she might possess more stolen government secrets. Prosecutors also said Thursday that 25-year-old Reality Winner might try to flee the U.S. if released on bond. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Solari told the judge Winner had written in a notebook: “I want to burn the White House Down … find somewhere in Kurdistan to live. Ha-ha!” Wearing an orange jumpsuit and leg shackles, Winner pleaded not guilty in U.S. district court to charges that she...

    Stephen Curry went to bed Friday night thinking he and the rest of the Golden State Warriors would convene Saturday for their first day of practice to decide whether they would be making the NBA champions’ traditional White House visit when they travel to Washington in February. He woke up to 20 text messages telling him that choice had been made for him, thanks to President Trump’s tweet that Curry’s White House invitation had been rescinded. “It’s surreal, to be honest,” Curry said after that practice had concluded at the team’s facility in downtown Oakland. “I don’t know why he...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    NBA star Stephen Curry was dis-invited from the White House on Saturday by President Trump. Curry, a Golden State Warriors guard and two-time NBA MVP, said Friday he would vote against the team visiting Trump's White House to celebrate the team’s 2017 championship. That was enough for Trump to decide against inviting him. "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!" the chief executive tweeted at 8:45 a.m.

    On one level, the saga of Madame Giselle is a story about, in no particular order, allegations by two neighbors who say they were swindled in an elaborate scheme to sell T-shirts to the Venezuelan army, a cash-stuffed envelope slipped under a doorway, a legendary bygone scandal involving the Colombian military and a glamorous woman known as “The Blonde,” an ongoing multimillion-dollar Colombian fraud case, and a supposed helicopter ride into Syria. But on another level, as illustrated in interviews and in hundreds of text messages obtained by The Washington Post, it’s a story about friendship and trust, about what...

    When John Sexton wrote about 11 year old Frank Giaccio getting to mow the White House lawn, he seemed to be taking a tongue-in-cheek tone when he wondered if anyone would invoke child labor laws to criticize the President. I mean, seriously now… who could be that insane? I half-expected Salon or maybe Slate to run this story under the headline, “Trump violates child labor laws at the White House.” So far it seems only a handful of nuts on Twitter are bringing up child labor laws, so maybe this means President Trump is slowly becoming “nomalized.” Not so...

The Daily Caller first reported that Rohrabacher met with Assange in mid-August. Rohrabacher later spoke to TheDC and said that Assange could potentially be pardoned for “information that will be of dramatic importance to the United States.” Assange has been in asylum since 2012 in the Ecuadorian embassy in London following sexual assault charges in Sweden...

    An 11-year-old boy earned a "great job" and a high five from US President Donald Trump for mowing the White House lawn on Friday (Sep 15). Frank Giaccio, from Falls Church, Virginia, wrote the president earlier this year saying that he owned his own lawn-mowing business and it would an "honour" to mow the White House lawn. The White House accepted his offer and Frank was invited to mow the grass in the Rose Garden on Friday under the watchful eye of uniformed park service workers.
