White House Press Room Floods During DC Storm

I doubt most of you will be chagrined to hear this. There was a sudden torrential rain in Washington, and the basement section of the White House press room flooded. This is neither unusual nor surprising. Remember, the White House is, in the end, just another federal building. I like how it is characterized as… Continue Reading

Trump Congratulates CNN on its Lowest Ratings of the Year

CNN is trailing the Food Network. Which makes sense, I guess. Only a portion of people hate President Trump, but very few people hate food. Very few people who survive, anyway.

I guess he’s been co-opted into the poisonous liberal culture at CNN, which pretends to play it straight,… Continue Reading

Jonathan Karl: We Have Seen No Evidence of Collusion

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, one of the fairest reporters in the mainstream media – recall how aggressively he went after Barack Obama spokesman Jay Carney – told the ladies of The View what they certainly didn’t want to hear: Robert Mueller may have come up empty on the allegation he was tasked to investigate. “On… Continue Reading

Video || CNN Reporter Has Microphone Taken Away During Trump Press Conference

CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins Friday tried to pull a Jim Acosta during a White House press conference, continuing to ask a question even though someone else had been called on. Someone from the White House came by to take the microphone from her. She didn’t stop asking her question, but unlike Acosta at… Continue Reading
