President Trump Friday said it is responding to the judge’s ruling temporarily granting CNN’s Jim Acosta his pass back by saying the White House is writing up new rules for conduct and he vowed to continue making the case in court that Acosta’s pass should be revoked. Trump said, according to the White House pool… Continue Reading

Trump Endorses Sentencing Reform – But Press Doesn’t Care Because He’s “a Racist”

President Trump Tuesday endorsed the “First Step Act,” a measure that would overhaul sentencing laws and disproportionately benefit African Americans, and while the press dutifully reported on it, no one in the MSM that I saw presented the move as perhaps belying claims that Trump is a racist. And it’s mostly not highlighted in on… Continue Reading

Trump Attacked for Treatment of Military By Those Who Nearly Destroyed It

It’s hilarious, truly, to hear the whining from Democrats and the carping in the press about President Trump’s supposed offenses toward our servicemembers. In recent days, he’s taken a boatload of you-know-what – let’s say, opprobrium – from the left for his treatment of the armed forces members serving on battlefields – and those buried… Continue Reading

Bob Woodward Opposes CNN Lawsuit, Saying It Helps Trump

Legendary reporter Bob Woodward says CNN’s lawsuit to reinstate Jim Acosta’s press pass is a bad idea, suggesting it only helps Trump, according to remarks reported by NBC News media reporter Dylan Byers on his Twitter feed. “This is a negative … Trump is sitting around saying, ‘This is great,’” Woodward said at the Global Financial… Continue Reading

Trump to Remove National Security Aide at Melania’s Request

Sounds like Mira Ricardel, one of National Security Advisor John Bolton’s most trusted aides, rubbed the first lady the wrong way. According to the Wall Street Journal: Mr. Trump has already decided to remove Ms. Ricardel, the top deputy for national security adviser John Bolton, officials said on Tuesday.

Trump Attacks Macron and, Unfortunately, France

President Trump Tuesday morning went after French President Emmanuel Macron, who has been trying to have it both ways lately – being the Friend of Trump and leading the European resistance against him, most notably in a speech delivered Sunday in Paris as Trump looked on against Trump-style “nationalism.” So Trump is more than a… Continue Reading

President Trump Friday said other reporters’ press passes could be taken away and said he has not made a decision on whether CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s pass would be permanently pulled. “I haven’t made that decision [on Acosta] but it could be others also,” Trump said.

Video || Trump: “I’ll Never Forgive” Obama for What He Did to the U.S. Military

President Trump Friday spoke to reporters – yet again – as he departed for a trip to Paris, France, saying he would “never forgive” Barack Obama for depleting the U.S. military. Trump spoke on the South Lawn before departing for a trip to Paris, France. He was responding to a question about Michelle Obama’s new… Continue Reading

America Did Not Reject Trumpism on Election Day

This is from an article I wrote last night for NBC News: Trump’s message in large part prevailed. In many key states where he campaigned aggressively — including Florida, Missouri, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas — Republican statewide candidates prevailed, perhaps due to Trump’s rollicking, improvisational rallies. He certainly didn’t hurt them. What liberals who believed… Continue Reading

CNN’s Jim Acosta Singlehandedly Sinks the Cause of a Free Press

CNN’s Jim Acosta was called on, allowed to ask several questions, and then told to sit down by the president. He refused and continued standing and talking, even wrestling with a young female White House staffer over the microphone. He offered a personal opinion, stating that the migrant caravan was not an “invasion,” disagreeing with… Continue Reading

Why the 2016 Midterms Might Elect Trump in 2020

From a piece I did in the Washington Examiner: The biggest winner of the 2018 elections was someone not on any ballot — it was President Trump, specifically, his 2020 re-election campaign. Assuming the absence of catastrophic events like a war or economic collapse — and those things could happen — the midterms have perfectly… Continue Reading
