Melania Trump rose to her husband’s defense, describing lewd comments as “boy talk” and claiming Trump was “egged on” by Billy Bush.
Former New York politician Betsy McCaughey is back, spinning for Trump. And she left CNN’s Don Lemon agog when she tried to defend his taped remarks about assaulting women by attacking Hillary Clinton and…Beyonce.
Effrontery on this level, as ex-Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski attempts to spin away the horrendous tape of his former boss boasting about sexual assault, is simply beyond price.
Media are infatuated with millennial voters and relentless report how they might not like Clinton as much as they loved Barack Obama. Mathematically, the indications are that the Republican Party stands poised to be routed by those voters in November.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski refused to answer questions from Media Matters about the ongoing payments he is receiving from the Trump campaign while he serves as a CNN contributor, claiming he can’t answer media questions without network approval.
Most networks ignored a report that American intelligence officials are probing Russian government ties to a man identified as a foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump.
Donald Trump has never participated in a one-on-one presidential debate. Hillary Clinton has been in 10 of them. Yet it’s Clinton, not Trump, who is under the most pressure when the two presidential candidates face off Monday night in New York.
Apparently pretty much everyone I know is a bed-wetter. The term gained currency in politics in January 2010 when Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, in a Washington Post opinion piece  titled “November doesn’t need to be a nightmare for Democrats,” gave this advice to his party: “No bed-wetting.” “Instead of fearing what may happen,” he […]
CNN’s decision to continue employing Corey Lewandowski, who is being simultaneously paid by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, clashes with its own years-long stated policies. The network has previously said that a person being “paid” by a campaign “would not be permitted to be a CNN contributor.”
Many have accused Kaepernick of seeking to insult veterans — though he explicitly said that was not the point of his protest — and others have said the national anthem ought to be above politics, a unifying theme under which celebrate our ideals.
CNN, which has repeatedly defended its hire of former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as a paid contributor, will soon have to explain why he is still receiving his regular salary from the Trump campaign.
CNN anchor Kate Bolduan was visibly shaken while reporting on the tale of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, a Syrian boy who was pulled from the ruins of a building in Aleppo after an airstrike there Wednesday.
The past year in politics has been a swirling vortex of hate, hyperbole, and conspiracy theories so out-of-control that nearly every spectacle — usually, a moment of Trumpian improv at some rally somewhere — seems immediately to erase the entire election from the attention of the Twittering class. But, occasionally, moments last: Jeb Bush’s “Please clap.” Donald Trump’s reluctance to disavow the KKK. And now: “Says who?”
So did the Secret Service discuss the violent comments with Trump’s campaign? By all accounts, except Trump’s own, it seems likely that they did.
Donald Trump “has increasingly been back in regular contact” with his former campaign manager and current paid CNN commentator Corey Lewandowski, according to U.S. News & World Report. The news comes amid reports of a Trump campaign implosion and CNN coming under increasing criticism for their hiring of Lewandowski. On July 1, Lewandowski admitted that he was still doing, in his words, “the same thing I’ve always been able to do,” as an adviser to Trump.
“Have those ever been released, and the question was did he get in as a U.S. citizen or was he brought into Harvard University as a citizen who wasn’t from this country?”
Trump “has not demonstrated to me the kind of coolness that you need in that situation,” King explained.
By now, it’s a pattern: Conservative politicians, after failed or menially important careers in public service, turn to cable news to make a real name for themselves, parlaying the illusion of power and influence into book deals, “consulting” positions, and TV shows. Last week was a shining example.
Lord shifted the blame to the Democratic Party, accusing them of anti-semitism, and arguing that they are “pushing anti-Israel points of view who were put there by Bernie Sanders.”
The program got heated when Lewandowski clashed with former New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn, who argued that Trump is a selfish, heartless businessman who only looks out for himself.
“We’re going to try to keep the focus where we think it belongs – the people whose lives were cut short.” said the CNN anchor, who became visibly emotional and teared up several times while reading the names.
Donald Trump’s campaign is rolling out a new strategy to try to tamp down the widespread criticism from the media and his fellow Republicans of Trump’s racist comments about a federal judge: flat-out lie about what he said and why.
