    Ex-President Donald Trump gave his clearest signal about 2024 yet when speaking on a podcast on Friday, saying it would be “very hard” for him not to run again. And when asked about when he will make his decision, and the announcement, Trump told the hosts that he has already made it privately. Trump spoke with hosts Clay Travis and Buck Sexton from his Bedminster golf club, where this week he is controversially hosting a Saudi-backed LIV Golf tournament. The hour-long episode covered a wide array of typical Trump topics, particularly his continuing insistence that he didn’t lose in 2020. But, the MAGA hosts also asked him about his 2024 plans a few times. “Knowing what you know and seeing what you see of Joe Biden, how do you not run in 2024?” asked Travis about midway into the hour. “Very hard for me not to run, to be honest,” said Trump. “And also, the polls indicate that, from the Republican standpoint, it would be easy.” He talked about polling for a minute and they moved on to the midterms....
    A Chicago-area librarian has broken Internet's heart after he revealed that an elderly patron asked him to check obituaries for her friends, only to discover that they have all died. 'I had an elderly patron call who didn't have Internet and ask me to look up some obituaries because she hadn't heard from her gang of high school friends for a while,' Eddie Kristan, a reference librarian at the Warren-Newport Public Library in Illinois tweeted on Friday.  'I found them all,' he continued, noting: 'She cried. I cried. I hope I handled it gently enough for her. 'I talked to her for a bit and told her to come into the library and I'd print the tributes our for her or I can mail them to her. She had me read a few to her. 'It's a really s*** time to feel so lonely.' Those tweets have since gone viral, with nearly 10,000 retweets and more than 204,300 shares. Now, people are commending Kristan for his efforts to comfort the unnamed elderly woman, with some even suggesting they organize a...
    Doja Cat has hit out at Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp after he shared their private DMs, where she voiced a romantic interest in his co-star. On Wednesday, Schnapp took to TikTok to post a now-deleted video that showcased private DMs between him and the 26-year-old singer, where she expressed a romantic interest in Stranger Things actor Joseph Quinn, 29. But Doja Cat, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, has hit back at Schnapp, taking to Instagram Live on Thursday to call him out for his duplicitous act, but added that she didn't want her fans to overreact, since Schnapp, 17, is 'just a kid'.

    Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) hedged repeatedly when CNN’s Dana Bash asked him for evidence that several of his colleagues wanted former President Donald Trump to pardon them after going along with his 2020 election lies. Raskin spoke to Bash on Sunday’s State of the Union, where he offered his reflections and expectations for the future after the January 6th Committee’s first televised hearing on Trump’s attempt to overturn his election loss. As Raskin spoke about the core findings from the committee, Bash asked him about how Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) said that after the storming of the Capitol, Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) and “multiple other Republican congressmen also sought president pardons for their roles in attempting to overturn the 2020 election.” “How many of your colleagues in Congress did that?” Bash asked. “And what evidence do you have? Because you know that Congressman Scott Perry is denying it.” Raskin didn’t directly answer the question, remarking instead that “the seeking of pardons is powerful demonstration of the consciousness of guilt, or at least the consciousness you may be in trouble. That’s...
    A traveler has accused TSA of discrimination after he claimed that he was detained at the airport because of his stutter. Marc Winski is an actor, singer, and public speaker from New York City who suffers from a speech impediment. He has alleged that he was stopped by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and brought in for an extra pat-down after they said he sounded 'nervous' due to his speech disorder. Marc, who often advocates for 'stutter awareness' on social media - where he has over 382,000 followers - opened up about his experience in a TikTok video posted last week.

    The Queen allowing Prince Andrew to escort her to Prince Philip's memorial service showed she 'believes he's innocent', and is still determined to 'make her own decisions', a royal expert has claimed. Speaking on True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat, Vanity Fair's Royal Editor Katie Nicholl, said the Queen knew what she was doing and deliberately wanted to show that she still 'makes the decisions'.  The monarch has been scaling back her public appearances since the start of the year due to mobility issues, but as her biographer Robert Hardman recently noted, she is 'absolutely pin sharp as ever', and seemingly wants to make that clear.  His prominent role on Tuesday came just weeks after agreeing a multi-million-pound settlement with his rape accuser Virginia Giuffre, whose claims he has always denied.   He was stripped of his military honours and royal patronages, and told by Prince Charles he would be made to 'disappear' from public life following his final official outing for his father's memorial.  Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Andrew arrive to attend a Service of Thanksgiving for Prince Philip,...
    Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy sparred with President Joe Biden on Monday over what the former called three “big things” the latter said during his trip in Europe last week. “Are you worried that other leaders in the world are going to start to doubt that America is back if some of these big things that you say on the world stage keep getting walked back,” asked Doocy during a press conference at the White House. “What’s getting walked back?” asked Biden. “In the last couple days, it sounded like you told U.S. troops they were going to Ukraine, it sounded like you said it was possible the U.S. would use a chemical weapon and it sounded like you were calling for regime change in Russia,” said Doocy. “None of the three occurred,” replied Biden. “None of the three occurred?” asked Doocy. “None of the three,” said Biden. However, those three did occur. Regarding the troops gaffe, Biden told U.S. troops in Poland on Friday: “You’re going to see when you’re there, and some of you have been there, you’re gonna see — you’re gonna see women, young people standing...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki deferred Friday when asked about a firm linked to Hunter Biden getting $3.5million from a Russian billionaire who hasn't been sanctioned yet. Psaki said she had 'no confirmation' of the findings of a Senate report saying just that, nor would she say whether or not the White House had point blank asked her boss' son about it. With much of her Friday briefing discussing the president's video call with Chinese President Xi Jinping, she refused to answer whether or not Hunter Biden divested from a Chinese investment fund controlled by state-owned entities.   Psaki said that the president will stay out of the Department of Justice's investigation of Hunter after the Times reported that he remains under investigation for tax fraud, money laundering and foreign lobbying violations.  'Yes, it's Department of Justice, and I would point you to them,' Psaki said when asked if 'the president still intend[s] to stay out of the case.'  hite House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a news briefing at the White House in Washington Friday Hunter Biden walks from...

    Embattled Spotify podcaster Joe Rogan addressed his COVID misinformation controversy during a comedy set in Texas Tuesday, saying that listeners should take his words with a grain of salt because he 'talks sh*t for a living.' 'I talk sh*t for a living - that's why this is so baffling to me,' Rogan, 54, said during an appearance at the Vulcan Gas Company in Austin, referring to the backlash he's faced from stars like Neil Young for anti-vax information that's been discussed on his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, which is exclusive to Spotify. 'If you're taking vaccine advice from me, is that really my fault?' Rogan asked fans in his first public appearance since folk-rock icon Young pulled his discography from the platform over the controversy, spurring others to follow suit and call for the Swedish streaming service to nix their $100million exclusive deal with the comedian. 'What dumb sh*t were you about to do when my stupid idea sounded better? "You know that dude who made people people eat animal dicks on TV? How does he feel about medicine?"' the...
    Mitch McConnell has slammed Joe Biden for 'adopting the Bernie Sanders prescription for America' after the president accused him of trying to stop the administration from being a success. The war of words between the veteran Republican and Democrat showed no sign of slowing down, as the Senate Minority Leader said Biden had 'got it wrong again'. In his Wednesday press conference, Biden repeatedly asked: 'The fundamental question is, what's Mitch for?' He then accused McConnell of doing 'anything to prevent Biden from being a success', and saying the Republicans do not know 'what they are for'. McConnell hit back on Thursday, telling Fox News: 'My good friend the president got it wrong again.  Fox News Privacy Policy Mitch McConnell has slammed Joe Biden for 'adopting the Bernie Sanders prescription for America' In his Wednesday press conference, Biden repeatedly asked: 'The fundamental question is, what's Mitch for?'

    Former Red Sox player David Ortiz twice called Boston sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy an “asshole” during a live radio hit on Wednesday. Ortiz is on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time this year and was snubbed by Shaughnessy, who as a member of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, casts a ballot each year. Shaughnessy, who covered Ortiz with the Boston Globe for the 14 years he played with the Red Sox, was roundly mocked on social media over his ballot. For the second year in a row, he cast only one vote – for former Giants second baseman Jeff Kent. Appearing on WEEI’s Merloni and Fauria on Wednesday, Ortiz shared his thoughts on Shaughnessy. “I’m just curious – you always have a good relationship with Dan?” asked cohost and former teammate Lou Merloni, knowing full well the answer. “It’s funny that you asked me that question because you know exactly the answer about that,” replied Ortiz. “I just thought I’d like to hear you,” said Merloni. “You know that Dan Shaughnessy has been an asshole to everybody,” responded...
    Sparks flew between Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci during a heated moment at a Senate Health Committee COVID-19 hearing on Tuesday. President Biden's chief medical adviser erupted at the Republican lawmaker early in the hearing for attacking him 'without a shred of evidence' and blaming him for threats to him and his family's safety.   He also blamed Paul 'distorting' his messages for a recently thwarted plot to kill Fauci and numerous other Washington, DC officials and political figures.  'What happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue, is that all of a sudden that kindles the crazies out there, and I have life -- threats upon my life, harassments of my family, and my children? Well, I've seen phone calls, because people are lying about me,' a visibly angered Fauci said.  He and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Wallensky are testifying on the government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic toward the end of its second year in front of the Senate panel. Paul, among Fauci's most vocal critics,...
    In the latest spat between the former president and the Senate minority leader, Donald Trump now claims that he did not pen the glowing foreword of Mitch McConnell's memoir that was attributed to him.    In the Kentucky Republican's 2016 book 'The Long Game,' Trump described McConnell as McConnell as an 'ace in the hole' and said he 'couldn't have asked for a better partner in Washington.  But Trump, having fallen out with the Senate leader who pushed through much of his agenda, now says that McConnell wrote the foreword and stuck Trump's name on it, with his permission.  Donald Trump now claims that he did not pen the glowing foreword of Mitch McConnell's memoir that was attributed to him Trump told the Washington Post that he told McConnell at the time, 'Why don't you write it for me and I'll put it in, Mitch? Because that's the way life works.'  McConnell, asked by the Post, if Trump's claim was true, did not dispute it.  'I really don't have anything to add related to him,' McConnell said.  McConnell was pivotal in...
    Joseph Rosenbaum screamed 'Shoot me N*****' and 'false-stepped' towards strangers to incite a violent response on the evening of August 25, 2020.  This is the testimony of Jason Lackowski, the first witness of the fourth day of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial and an army veteran who traveled to Kenosha to 'protect property.' Questioned by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger, Lackowski, who was armed with an AR-15, a knife and CS canisters that night, said that Rosenbaum asked him to shoot him several times. Lackowski said, 'He said 'Shoot me,' and used more explicit language than that. 'He had been acting very belligerently. He had asked people very bluntly to shoot him. He did what I would call, ''false-stepping'' to incite someone.' On Binger's request, Lackowski rose to demonstrate 'false-stepping' to the jurors. He lurched forward from a standing start, in a jarring movement and with his chest puffed out, then simply stepped back. Despite this, Lackowski said he did not consider Rosenbaum a credible threat to him or anyone else. Instead, he turned his back on him and walked away....

    Andrew Cuomo hired a female state trooper to be part of his personal security detail because she made eye contact with him when they met at an event, and 'he liked that she was assertive with him,' his lawyer has said. Cuomo, 63, was accused by 'Trooper Number One' of sexual harassment while she was working for him.  The trooper, in her 20s, officially started working on Cuomo's security detail in January 2018.  Over the next three years, Cuomo had a series of encounters with her that she described as 'flirtatious' and 'creepy,' the report said. They included an unwanted kiss, inappropriate touching, sexually suggestive comments and several invitations to join him 'upstairs' at the governor's executive mansion, according to the report.  Andrew Cuomo is seen with state troopers in October 2016. The following year he would meet a female state trooper at an event in New York City, and request she be assigned to his security detail. She claims he then began sexually harassing her Cuomo attorney Rita Glavin on Friday insisted that Cuomo hired the trooper because...
    Jason Momoa had an awkward encounter with a reporter after calling them out for an "icky" question about his "Game of Thrones" character.  Momoa’s star has been on the rise since his breakout performance as the ruthless Khal Drogo in Season 1 of the hit HBO drama. He’s currently filming the sequel to "Aquaman" and is slated to appear in "Dune," "Sweet Girl" and the latest season of his AppleTV show "See."  Speaking in an interview with The New York Times to promote his new projects, the reporter asked the star about a controversy that sparked from his role in "Game of Thrones" more than a decade ago. The first episode of the series saw the 42-year-old actor’s warlord character force himself on Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen on their wedding night.  When the reporter asked Momoa if he regrets filming the scene or would have done things differently in light of it seeming like an "older cultural moment," the actor got incredibly uncomfortable and defensive.  'AQUAMAN' STAR JASON MOMOA ON PROTECTING HIS KIDS FROM FAME: 'I TURN INTO A BIT...
    For the second time in 48 hours, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) seemed unprepared for a question about whether he spoke with then-President Donald Trump on January 6. On that day, of course, a mob stormed the Capitol in an effort to overturn the 2020 election Trump had lost. Jordan was asked the same question by Bret Baier on Fox News on Tuesday, so it’s a little odd that the Ohio congressman hasn’t nailed down a more polished response. The query may be relevant because Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who is a member of the House select committee investigating the riot, has suggested Jordan could be called before the panel as a material witness. Jordan was slated to be a member of the committee, but his nomination was rejected by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. During the Tuesday interview, an initially evasive Jordan finally admitted – apparently for the first time publicly – that he did talk to Trump on January 6. On Thursday, reporter Taylor Popielarz drilled down on that admission in an interview with Jordan on Spectrum News Ohio. “First off...

    PRESIDENT Joe Biden snapped at a reporter who asked him about his inconsistent mask-wearing during a press conference on Friday. The testy exchange came after Biden delivered remarks in response to a disappointing report that found the economy added only 266,000 jobs last month - far below expectations. 3The testy exchange came after Biden delivered remarks in response to a disappointing jobs report that found the economy added only 266,000 jobs last monthCredit: Reuters While fielding questions, a reporter asked the president: "You walked out to the podium with your mask on. Why do you choose to wear a mask so often when you're vaccinated and you're around others who are vaccinated?" Appearing to be irked by the question, Biden snapped: "Because I'm worried about you." The president then held up his hands and backtracked, saying, "No, that's a joke. It's a joke." He continued: "Why am I wearing the mask? Because when we're inside it's still good policy to wear the mask. That's why. "When I'm outside -- the problem is lots of times I walk away from...
    Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley criticized Donald Trump in a February Politico profile and said she was angry after the Capitol riots. “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.” Haley said Republicans should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.” She defended Trump’s policies in the profile, but her comments at the time indicated she thinks the former president is basically politically dead. On Monday afternoon, Haley said she would support Trump if he decides to run in 2024. AP reporter Meg Kinnard asked Haley about Trump’s continued popularity among Republicans and whether she would support him. “Yes,” Haley said. “If he decides he’s going to run, would that preclude any sort of run that you would possibly make yourself?” Kinnard asked. “I would not run if...
    Susanna Griso reproaches Fran Rivera for a question. (Photo: Antena 3) The bullfighter Fran Rivera took advantage of his section in Public Mirror, Rivera and friends, to interview Luis Moya, Carlos Sáinz’s legendary co-driver with whom he was proclaimed world rally champion in 1990 and 1992. During the interview, the right-hander asked him how people drive in Spain and then asked him a controversial question, which he ended up being reproached by Susanna Griso, the presenter of the Antena 3 space. “Do women drive as well as men?” Rivera wanted to know. Moya replied that according to him yes. “They make the same mistakes that we make,” he said. “For example, I like my wife to drive and she drives well. Sometimes I have to remind her to adjust the seat, because she is smaller than I am and I have it tailored to me, “said the pilot. Moya also explained that this is essential in the event of an accident, since if it is stretched and has a frontal impact, the driver will stiffen and destroy his knees and...
    There will be no confrontation between the former president of the Government, Mariano Rajoy, and the ex-treasurer of the PP, Luis Barcenas, in the case in which box b of the conservative formation is judged. This has been decided by the judge this Monday in the third session of the case, in which Bárcenas has declared for the first time and has pointed out with names and surnames. He has ensured that he himself gave bonuses to senior officials of the formation, who offered him half a million euros to modify his papers and has dated the end of the irregular cash register in 2010. The magistrate has indicated that the confrontation is an “exceptional diligence of the preliminary investigation”, a phase that was left behind since what began a month ago was the oral hearing. However, the judge has agreed to call journalists such as witnesses as witnesses. Ernesto Ekaizer or Eduardo Inda. Both were proposed by the defense of Bárcenas, since supposedly they were aware of the existence of a tape in which the deceased ex-treasurer of the...
    Ted Cruz invited his college roommate from Princeton and Harvard Law to join him and his family on their Cancun vacation, it has been revealed.  The Texas Senator flew to Mexico last Wednesday afternoon with his wife Heidi and their two daughters, aged 10 and 12, while millions in their home state struggled without power, heat and water.  He flew back the next day amid outcry over the trip, and defended it by saying he was just being a 'good dad' and appeasing his 'girls', who'd asked if they could jet somewhere warm while Texas froze.  After planning the trip apparently at the last minute, Cruz also invited his David Panton, his roommate from Princeton and Harvard Law, who lives in Atlanta and works in private equity.  Panton accepted and flew to Cancun, where he also got a room at The Ritz-Carlton, Axios has revealed.  It's unclear when he flew back. Panton grew up in Jamaica before attending college in the US.   Ted Cruz and David Panton (pictured graduating from college).

    Justin Timberlake. Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images Justin Timberlake recently apologized to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson for not doing "what was right." Reporter Ernest Owens is calling attention to the way Timberlake "played the victim" five years ago.  "These weren't 'missteps,' but deliberate actions that caused real harm," Owens wrote in a new article. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. In the wake of Justin Timberlake's recent public apology to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson, one journalist is calling foul and recounting how Timberlake refused to apologize to Jackson five years ago. In a new Daily Beast article, journalist Ernest Owens recalled how he tweeted at Timberlake in 2016, claiming that the singer was appropriating Black music and telling him to "apologize to Janet, too."  Owens, a Black queer journalist, was retweeting Timberlake's praise of actor Jesse Williams' 2016 BET Awards speech, in which Williams condemned police brutality as well as the entertainment industry's "gentrification" of Black culture.—Ernest Owens (@MrErnestOwens) June 27, 2016In a since-deleted tweet, a screenshot of which you can find in Owens' new article,...
    A lawyer for former President Donald Trump went after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for trying to pin him down on who won the 2020 election. The exchange took place during the late Friday afternoon of Trump’s impeachment trial — as the Senate posed questions to the Democratic House managers and the president’s defense team. Sanders asked the following of both sides: The House prosecutors have stated over and over again that President Trump was perpetrating a big lie when he repeatedly claimed that the election was stolen from him, and that he actually won the election by a landslide. Are the prosecutors right when they claim Trump was telling a big lie, or — in your judgment — did Trump actually win the election? After the House managers responded, Trump defense attorney Michael van der Veen expressed bewilderment at the question, and sought to identify his interrogator. “My judgment?!” van der Veen said. “Who asked that?! “I did!” Sanders said, from his desk. “My judgment’s irrelevant in this proceeding!” van der Veen said. The heated exchange triggered shouts from the...
    ABC/Craig Sjodin Matt James on 'The Bachelor.' Even though we are halfway through season 25 of The Bachelor, the same question lingers: Why does Matt James kiss with his eyes open? His recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live seems to provide at least some insight. When asked by the Bravo talk show’s host, Andy Cohen, about his first kiss, James recounted the harrowing story. The real estate broker explained, “I was in seventh grade and I snuck out of the movie theaters to make out with my current girlfriend and I bit her lip so hard that she bled down her chin.” He blamed the incident for his open-eyed kisses, quipping, “I was so traumatized by that experience, I think I started kissing with my eyes open after that so I made sure everything was going the right direction.” Fans seemed to really take notice of this habit starting with the second episode of the season. One fan’s tweet, “i’ve found Matt James’ glaring flaw: he kisses with his eyes open,” echoes the sentiment of many of...

    The doctor granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy who cared for coronavirus patients in New York City at the height of the pandemic has called out her anti-vaccine uncle for spreading 'misinformation'. In an op-ed for the New York Times on Wednesday, Kerry Kennedy Meltzer, 29, wrote that she loves her uncle Robert F. Kennedy Jr. yet 'when it comes to vaccines, he is wrong'. Kennedy Jr, the son of late Attorney General Robert F Kennedy and nephew of late President John F Kennedy, is a prominent anti-vaccine activist and has advocated that parents should choose whether or not they want their children immunized. The 66-year-old has more recently been posting his opposition to the COVID-19 vaccine, claiming that there is a danger of allergic reaction after they were 'shoddily tested' and asking how Dr Fauci and other experts have planned to deal with it. Yet Kennedy Meltzer, who works as an internal medicine resident physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, hit back calling her uncle's assertion 'dangerously wrong' as she urged Americans to take the vaccine 'for your country'.  ...
    Barack Obama gave Drake his stamp of approval to portray him in a movie about his life.  Although there is no biopic about the life of the former president currently in the works, the rapper previously stated that he would love to be selected to play Obama if a project were to ever come about. Speaking with Complex’s “360 With Speedy Morman” for an interview, Obama was asked directly if he’d be comfortable with Drake portraying him. “I will say this,” Obama began. “Drake seems to be able to do anything he wants. I mean, that is a talented, talented brother. So, if the time comes and he’s ready, you know…” The former president added that he believes his daughters, who are fans of Drake’s, would be even more excited than him if the role were to come to fruition.  DRAKE SHARES FIRST PUBLIC IMAGES OF SON ADONIS: 'I LOVE AND MISS MY BEAUTIFUL FAMILY' “You know what, Drake has, more importantly I think, my household’s stamp of approval,” he said with a laugh. “I suspect Malia and Sasha will be...
    Democratic Delaware Sen. Chris Coons said Tuesday that a number of Republicans have privately asked him to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden. Because President Donald Trump has openly contested the results of the election, Coons told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that there were some Republicans who felt that they could not publicly congratulate Biden, who is the projected winner. (RELATED: Chris Coons Is ‘Not A Fan Of Court Packing,’ But He’s Open To It If Amy Coney Barrett Is Confirmed) WATCH: Coons told the “New Day” host that he believed it was time for Republicans to step up and accept Biden as the president-elect in spite of Trump’s objections. “Do you see any evidence that Republican leaders are doing that? Will do that?” Camerota asked. “I see no evidence of voter fraud in the key states that would need to have their outcomes changed, and I so far see little evidence of any Republicans standing up to the president,” Coons began, noting that four Republican senators had offered their congratulations to Biden. The four Republican Senators who have publicly congratulated Biden...
    Screenshot via CBS. Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke candidly in a 60 Minutes interview with CBS’ Dr. Jon LaPook about his experiences with President Donald Trump on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, including acknowledging that the White House has been controlling his media appearances, his lack of surprise that the president contracted Covid-19, and his anger over being featured in a Trump campaign ad without his permission. As the pandemic spread across the country, infecting millions of Americans and killing over 200,000, Fauci’s continued pleas for people to take the virus seriously often put him at crosshairs with the president, who wanted a more positive message leading into the November election. Former Trump administration officials like Olivia Troye have acknowledged that Fauci was sidelined, and members of the media have repeatedly complained that the White House has refused to make Fauci or other experts on the task force available for interviews. LaPook asked Fauci head on if the White House had been “controlling” when he could speak with the media. “You know, I think you’d have to be honest...
    Georgia Democratic State Rep. Vernon Jones slammed MSNBC host Craig Melvin on Wednesday after Melvin asked Jones if the reason that he supported President Donald Trump was because he was being paid. “Are you a paid campaign surrogate?” Melvin asked. “Are you being compensated?” “Let me be clear. You get paid to shape a liberal narrative. You get paid to attack this president,” Jones fired back. “I don’t get a dime for this president. I don’t get a dime from the campaign. Everything I’ve done has been me and based on my principles.” “And see, that’s the problem, when an African American that’s an [elected official]–” Jones continued before Melvin cut him off. “Sir, I did not raise your race,” Melvin said as the bickering intensified. “Let me finish now,” Jones said. “Let me finish.” “No, no, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa,” Melvin continued to interrupt. “You’re not going to imply that I asked that question because you’re black.” “You don’t ask Stacey Abrams if she’s getting paid from the Left,” Jones shot back. “So don’t ask me that. You only ask...

    “The first Christians did not blame the others. They prayed. They did not say, if Pedro had been more prudent … They did not speak ill of him, they did not criticize him, not even from the back,” the pontiff said Monday when celebrating the so-called Solemnity. of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in the Vatican. “They prayed for him. What would happen if we prayed more and murmured less?” Francis summoned before a group of fifty faithful and ten cardinals who witnessed the celebration.

During an interview with Axios, the president was reportedly asked why his administration declined to impose sanctions over the issue prior to his decision in recent days to sign a bill imposing sanctions on several Chinese officials and calling on the State Department to file a report on Chinese suppression of its Uighur Muslim minority. "Well, we were in the middle of a major trade deal," the president responded. "And when you're in the middle of a negotiation and then all of a sudden you start throwing additional sanctions on — we've done a lot," he added, according to Axios. "I put tariffs on China, which are far worse than any sanction you can think of." Trump also...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump “pleaded” with China’s Xi Jinping during a 2019 summit to help his reelection prospects, according to a scathing new book by former Trump adviser John Bolton that accuses the president of being driven by political calculations when making national security decisions. The White House was working furiously to block release of the book, asking a federal court for an emergency temporary restrainer Wednesday to prevent the spread of allegations, like those about China, that carry echoes of Trump’s efforts to solicit political help from Ukraine. Those efforts led to his impeachment. The 577-page book paints an unvarnished portrait of Trump and his administration, lending the most vivid, first-person account yet of how Trump conducts himself in office. Several other former officials have written books, but most have been flattering about the president. Other former officials have indicated they were saving their accounts of their time working for Trump until after he left office in order to speak more candidly. The Associated Press obtained a copy of Bolton’s book in advance of its release next...
    WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump asked China's Xi Jinping during a 2019 summit meeting to help his reelection prospects by purchasing more American farm products, according to a new book by former Trump national security adviser John Bolton that is highly critical of the president.Bolton called Trump's effort to shift the June 2019 conversation to the U.S. election a stunning move, and wrote that it was among innumerable conversations that "formed a pattern of fundamentally unacceptable behavior that eroded the very legitimacy of the presidency."Overall, Bolton wrote, because staff had served him so poorly, Trump "saw conspiracies behind rocks, and remained stunningly uninformed on how to run the White House, let alone the huge federal government."As for the meeting with the Chinese president in Osaka, Japan, Bolton wrote that Trump told Xi that Democrats were hostile to China."He then, stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming U.S. presidential election, alluding to China's economic capability to affect the ongoing campaigns, pleading with Xi to ensure he'd win," Bolton said. "He stressed the importance of farmers, and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans...
    President Trump appealed to China’s President Xi Jinping to help him win the next election by increasing the Chinese government’s agricultural purchases from American farmers, former National Security Adviser John Bolton writes in his bombshell forthcoming memoir. During a one-on-one meeting at the June 2019 G20, Trump “stunningly, turned the conversation to the coming U.S. presidential election, alluding to China’s economic capability to affect the ongoing campaigns, pleading with Xi to ensure he’d win,” Bolton writes, according to an excerpt in the Wall Street Journal. It was one of several disturbing instances Bolton outlines of Trump appealing to foreign dictators for his own gains—a pattern of behavior that he says went far beyond the Ukraine aid saga. Trump was willing to kill off criminal probes against Turkish and Chinese companies to “in effect, give personal favors to dictators he liked,” Bolton writes, alleging that Trump was willing to intervene in probes against Turkey’s Halkbank and China’s ZTE to curry favor with either country’s leaders. “The pattern looked like obstruction of justice as a way of life, which we...
