Just a reminder of some of Sean’s best moments amid reports he is about to be given the hook. Personally, I’ve seen plenty of press secretaries, and I think Sean does pretty well, despite some mistakes.
Everyone seems surprised, but it doesn’t seem to have occurred to anyone on the Washington mainstream media that body-slamming a reporter, particularly one so dripping with metrosexuality — Oh, you broke my glasses! — might actually have HELPED his prospects.
This, of course, is not the first time in American history a politician has needed to body-slam a reporter. Reason.com has documented several such cases.
President Trump met with Pope Francis today. Looked a little awkward, and for good reason.
As you may remember, Trump got under Fancis’s skin last year when he suggested the Mexicans were using him, during a visit he was making to the country, to advance their opposition to a wall along the Mexican border.
The pope responded by saying Trump was not a Christian.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and does not focus on building bridges, is not a Christian,” Francis said.
Trump quite properly responded that the Vatican should know who its friend are:
If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians . . .
For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. [Mexican leaders] are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.
Here is some video of Trump’s motorcade making its way through Rome. I can tell you, I’ve witnessed and been in plenty of motorcades covering presidents, and I’ve never seen anything like this in terms of its length and the small army of security that appears to be within it.
Well, she did it again. Here are President Trump and Mrs. Trump landing in Rome, and she again refuses to take his hand. As you can see, she gets a nice little pat in the ass instead. She did it before in Israel. Now, of course, it could be that she’s sick of him and… Continue Reading
Sorry to disappoint. Okay, you want corruption related to the Soviet Union? Here. Bill Clinton’s trip to Kazakhstan in 2005, while Hillary Clinton was a senator and preparing to run for president. Don’t forget the $500,000 Bill was paid for a speech in Moscow in 2010, while his wife was Secretary of State. Does he… Continue Reading
“Young, beautiful, innocent people . . . murdered by “evil losers in life,” President Trump said, adding, “I won’t call them monsters, because they would like that term . . . I will call them, from now on, losers.” Continue Reading
One can only imagine what it must take to protect a president traveling in Saudi Arabia and Israel. And next he’s off the Palestinian Authority and then to Europe, where terrorism is now abundant. Not a simple trip. Continue Reading
I’m a sucker for the grandeur of events such as these, so I give you video showing the entire arrival ceremony earlier today in Israel. If you want to skip a head to Trumps, Remarks, they begin at about 21:10. “We love Israel; we respect Israel. And I send your people the warmest greetings from… Continue Reading
In Jerusalem. In Israel. You can see Ivanka and Jared Kushner, who are Orthodox Jews, tagging along. After the president was finished, Jared kushner, economic adviser Gary Cohn, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson approached the wall together and offered their own prayers. Continue Reading
And he even joins in, looking about as natural as you would imagine a real estate magnate from Queens hanging with the locals in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I’m wondering if the Secret Service agreed in advance to choreography that put a sword litterally on the president’s neck, of if that was just a pleasant surprise… Continue Reading
Looks like only a relative handful of young totalitarian dummies who approve of free speech as long as they agree with it. Glad they got booed, but I’m sure they still thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Continue Reading
