According to a Politico report, the president felt “resentful and angry” when Ivanka Trump condemned Moore in November and told the Associated Press there’s “a special place in hell for people who prey on children.”
The America First Project published a video Sunday that showed Millie March—who rose to fame at the age of 11 during the 2016 election due to her support for Donald Trump—interviewing Moore as part of his campaign for election in Alabama.
“It’s time for the American public to ponder the gravity and consequences of the scandal engulfing the White House,” writes CNN commentator Errol Louis. “We know Trump has been trying in every way possible to deny, delay or discredit efforts by the Justice Department to ferret out the connections between the administration and a hostile foreign power.”
While it was disturbing, it was sadly unsurprising that Donald Trump eventually endorsed Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore, and implored his own supporters to vote for a man accused of serial sexual predation against young girls.
Donald Trump knows the story of Winston Churchill, whose judgment was: “Chamberlain had the choice between war and shame. Now he has chosen shame — he’ll get war later.” A year later, he was proved right. But the lesson Trump learned from World War II is that aggression can pay off.
Ford hit Michigan and its auto workers with some crappy holiday news. Instead of building a $700 million electric vehicle factory in Michigan as promised in January, Ford will construct the plant in Mexico.
King, a representative of Iowa, linked to an article from the Voice of Europe that quoted Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban saying that all cultures should not be mixed because it’s “against common sense.”
Moore has been accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the late 1970s. Several Republicans called on Moore to drop out of the race, but the candidate has denied all allegations and has the support and endorsement of President Donald Trump.
In the waning days of the 2016 presidential election, worried political prognosticators, including more than a few moderate Republicans, papered over their fears about the possible victory of Donald J. Trump with reminders of the constitutional balance of power.
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore’s allies in the conservative media have been trying desperately to undermine the numerous credible reports of sexual misconduct by Moore, and today they thought they’d finally spied an opportunity — which they immediately seized on with characteristic dishonesty.
Maybe it was masochism, or maybe I felt the need to better understand the culture warrior’s demented version of American constitutional history, but something was nagging at me – as if I had forgotten some detail that would pull everything together if only I took the time to read his self-serving screed once again.
At a campaign event earlier this year, an audience member asked Moore for his opinion on when the last time America was “great.” Moore responded: “I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.”
The federal oil-lease sale promoted as the largest ever in Alaska’s Arctic Reserve sold only seven tracts, or 0.8% of the 900 tracts offered, undercutting Republican arguments that they can help pay for their proposed $1.5 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy by selling oil leases in the Alaskan wilderness.
I’m not one to wait with bated breath for Time magazine’s annual bequest. But this year was different, starting last month, after Donald Trump claimed he had declined the magazine’s request to photograph and interview him because editors would only say he “probably” would be this year’s selection.
Sen. Al Franken said he would resign from the U.S. Senate on Thursday following mounting allegations of sexual harassment and loss of support by fellow Democrats, a stunning and rapid fall for a Minnesota politician who followed decades as a successful TV comic with a rise to the highest echelons of U.S. political power.
That’s how a moral America deals with men who molest underage girls. Roy Moore apparently did the same at age 32, except that one of the girls was 14 and his hands roved down to panty level. Every society has its Moores — sick predators who hide their perversions in a thick cloud of religiosity.
Increasingly, it seems like Donald Trump has paved the way for Republicans to get away with statements that are nearly as outrageous as his own. Take the shameless claims the Republicans have used to push for the tax bill over the past two months.
Lawyers representing Alabama citizens may file a lawsuit within days to preserve electronic images of every paper ballot cast in next week’s high-profile special U.S. Senate election between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore.
Facing a rising chorus of voices demanding he step down because of sexual harassment claims, U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., on Tuesday retired from the seat he has held for more than five decades, a swift and crushing fall from grace for a civil rights icon and the longest-serving active member of Congress.
There’s no shortage of appalling features in the reward-the-rich Republican tax bills passed by Congress. The process now moves to a phase where differences between each body’s bills must be reconciled. Those discrepancies offer slim chances for fair-minded Americans to pressure Congress to soften the blows.
Republicans have spent years complaining about how Congress spent less than a year reviewing Obamacare before voting to overhaul one-sixth of the American economy. But that’s a lifetime compared to how long the GOP waited over the weekend before passing a tax bill that could overhaul the entire economy: About eight hours.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Monday fully endorsed Roy Moore, acting to back the Alabama Senate candidate after conversations with his former strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, who has advocated Moore’s candidacy.
Under pressure from Democratic senators — “There are so many deserving schools in Oregon and Pennsylvania and elsewhere who don’t get this special treatment,” Oregon’s Ron Wyden observed — Toomey claimed Hillsdale’s not having to pay a tax on its endowment…
Four-decade-old sexual misconduct allegations against Alabama Republican Roy Moore are playing a major role for voters in his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat, but nine days ahead of the election two major polls are split whether he is ahead of Democrat Doug Jones.
Protesters greeted President Trump’s motorcade in New York City with chants of “lock him up” on Saturday—echoing the slogan Trump used on the campaign trail about his presidential rival, Hillary Clinton. Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the restaurant where Trump is to hold a fundraiser Saturday…
