    Please help me understand how trump WON in a landslide yet according to this CNN article DJT never polled over 50% (CNN)Donald Trump has always been fixated on writing his name into the history books, to ensure his four years as president aren't forgotten. Well, he's done it! Trump ends his term with the lowest average job approval rating -- 41% -- of any president in the last seven-plus decades, according to Gallup. That's four points worse than the next, uh, worst -- Harry Truman, who averaged a 45% job approval score throughout his time in office. Barack Obama averaged...
  • Pence has not ruled out 25th Amendment, source says

    Vice President Mike Pence has not ruled out an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment and wants to preserve the option in case President Donald Trump becomes more unstable, a source close to the vice president says. The source said there is some concern inside Pence's team that there are risks to invoking the 25th Amendment or even to an impeachment process, as Trump could take some sort of rash action putting the nation at risk. As of Saturday evening, Trump and Pence still have not spoken since the Wednesday incursion at the US Capitol that left five people dead,...

    Washington (CNN) Hours before President Donald Trump retweeted a message for his vice president to "act" in stopping the ratification of the Electoral College, he met for more than an hour in the Oval Office with Mike Pence, whom he has complained recently isn't doing enough to support his bid to overturn the election. The discussion was "entirely unrelated" to the eventual tweet, one person familiar with the matter said, though would not specify whether the issue of the January 6 ratification in Congress arose. The two men went separate ways for the holiday. As Trump enters the holiday stretch...
  • Biden's Catholic faith will be on full display as the first publicly churchgoing president in decades

    Joe Biden rarely misses Sunday Mass. So it was notable when the President-elect didn't attend church on November 29, the first Sunday of Advent and the beginning of the season when Roman Catholics like Biden prepare for Christmas. Biden's absence was understandable, since just a day earlier he had broken his foot. But the following weekend, Biden was back at his home parish in Wilmington, Delaware -- St. Joseph on the Brandywine -- for Saturday's vigil Mass. He was there again on Tuesday on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, a holy day of obligation. That's a level of devotion...
  • Pennsylvania issues blistering rebuke of Texas' lawsuit seeking to invalidate millions of votes

    Pennsylvania officials on Thursday filed a blistering brief at the Supreme Court rebuking the Texas lawsuit seeking to overturn President Donald Trump's defeat in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, casting the move as using a "cacophony of bogus claims" to support a "seditious abuse of the judicial process." "Texas seeks to invalidate elections in four states for yielding results with which it disagrees. Its request for this Court to exercise its original jurisdiction and then anoint Texas's preferred candidate for President is legally indefensible and is an affront to principles of constitutional democracy," wrote Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. The...

    As Thanksgiving week draws to an end, more experts are warning the Covid-19 pandemic will likely get much worse in the coming weeks before a possible vaccine begins to offer some relief. More than 205,000 new cases were reported Friday -- which likely consists of both Thursday and Friday reports in some cases, as at least 20 states did not report Covid-19 numbers on Thanksgiving. As of Saturday evening, more than 138,000 new cases and 1,100 deaths had been reported, according to Johns Hopkins University. The US has now reported more than 100,000 infections every day for 26 consecutive days....

    I had an opportunity to ask the president of the United States a question only once in the six weeks prior to the November general election—when, on September 23, I asked him if he would support a peaceful transfer of power following the election “win, lose or draw.” His answer was explosively controversial at the time: “We’ll see what happens.” Well, we have seen. We have seen the president lose the election—by more than 5 million popular votes and by 306-232 in the Electoral College. In 2016, when Trump won the Electoral College by that same margin but lost the...
  • CNN’s Cuomo: Trump Is ‘Lying His Ass Off’ on Election Fraud Claims

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo accused President Donald Trump of “lying his ass off” about fraud in the 2020 presidential election. David Gregory said, “There were not widespread irregularities. We should be celebrating the fact that this went off so well in a pandemic. There are always things to look at in terms of irregularities in an election, but there was nothing widespread. There are trial lawyers who are hacks and there are good ones. You know how I know the difference? In this case the good lawyers are getting out of this litigation. They don’t want to be any part...

    Hunter Biden, hello? At the end of a panel discussion this morning on CNN's New Day about President Trump's challenges to the election results, co-host John Berman swiped at Rudy Giuliani: "And by the way, you know, there are reports in The Times and other places that Rudy Giuliani wants to charge $20,000 a day for his "legal services." And yes, that did merit air quotes right there. And there have been these questions about, oh, is Rudy maybe lacking mental acuity, has he slipped a little bit? You know, I think we can stop grading him on a curve....

    President Donald Trump's agenda listed "no public events" on Tuesday -- the 10th time since the election that those words have appeared on his daily schedule. He has answered no questions from reporters, invited no cameras into the Oval Office and ventured no further than his namesake golf course, 25 miles from the White House in Virginia.

    In a shocking segment, CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour recalled Kristallnacht — the infamous anti-Jewish pogrom carried out throughout Nazi Germany — by noting that President Donald Trump’s presidency has similarly been a “modern day assault” attacking “those same values.” In the opening of her daily global affairs interview program on Thursday, Amanpour dedicated her introduction to commemorating Kristallnacht (or “Night of Broken Glass”) which occurred this week in 1938. “This week, 82 years ago, Kristallnacht happened; it was the Nazis’ warning shot across the bow of our human civilization that led to genocide against a whole identity,” she stated.

    A defamation lawsuit brought against CNN by President Donald Trump’s campaign will not move forward, a federal judge in Georgia ruled Thursday, part of a raft of libel accusations the campaign waged against media outlets over the last year. Trump’s campaign filed the lawsuit in federal court in March, seeking damages for a 2019 opinion piece on CNN’s website that it called false and libelous. Judge Michael Brown dismissed the legal challenge on Thursday, arguing the campaign could not demonstrate that CNN published any inaccurate information intentionally or with reckless disregard for the truth, a high standard known as “actual...

    Airspace now restricted over Biden’s home From CNN's Pete Muntean New restricted "national defense airspace" has been put in place over Democratic nominee Joe Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware. The Federal Aviation Administration posted the Temporary Flight Restriction on Wednesday, the day after the general election. An FAA notice to pilots available online shows the one mile radius no-fly zone is now active until next Wednesday morning. The FAA says airspace has also been temporarily restricted over the nearby Chase Center, where the stage is set for a possible Biden victory speech – should he ultimately win the presidential election....

    As Covid-19 cases continue to jump during the fall surge, Dr. Anthony Fauci says there's little chance of normalcy on the horizon. The US will have a vaccine in the next few months, but there's a chance a "substantial proportion of the people" won't be vaccinated until the second or third quarter of 2021, Fauci said. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reiterated caution on the nation's outlook. "I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci...

    Almost 1,000 absentee ballots are sitting in a locked bin somewhere in the Guilford County Board of Elections waiting to be processed. At least two voters in Greensboro, North Carolina, part of Guilford County, had no idea their ballots were sitting in that pile. incent Gager, a 48-year-old Black man, and his 83-year-old father Nathaniel mailed in their ballots on September 4. They wanted to vote by mail to avoid exposure to Covid-19. Over a month later, neither man had any idea their ballot had been listed as "pending cure" -- which meant there was something wrong with them that...

    Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump nationally and is running ahead or even with him in most swing state polls. He is besting Trump on just about every question atop voters' minds, from the coronavirus and health care to "law and order." And yet, for many Democrats a constant anxiety -- that somehow seems to spike with each dose of good news -- persists. Four years on from Trump's stunning victory, the psychic wounds of Hillary Clinton's loss remain fresh. When a flurry of new polls were released this week that showed Biden's advantage widening, the collective reaction from liberals,...

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett initially failed to disclose two talks she gave in 2013 hosted by two anti-abortion student groups on paperwork provided to the Senate ahead of her confirmation hearing to become the next Supreme Court justice. Barrett, President Donald Trump's nominee to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, gave the talks in 2013 in her capacity as a law professor at the University of Notre Dame. The seminar was co-sponsored by the school's Right to Life club and constitutional studies minor, and the lecture was held by the law school's Jus Vitae club. Late on Friday night, hours after...
