AMERICA has failed to self-correct and self-contain itself; by allowing President Donald Trump to continuously bridle ‘elimination rhetoric’ around, and spout language that is deficient in political gymnasium; a President who uses egregious language; deriding and lampooning ‘opponents’ real or imagined and rather averse to any ‘Russianalised‘ conversation.
Donald Trump is systematically and progressively uprooting the guard-rails of democracy and the’rule of law’ as we have known time immemorial. A President who fans, rather than douses, the ‘Nation’s Racial Fires’. Except there’s one: The National Enquirer who kept a safe containing documents on hush money payments and other damaging stories (under what was dubbed ‘catch & kill’) it killed as part of its cozy relationship with Donald Trump leading up to the 2016 presidential election.
Several media outlets reported on Thursday that federal prosecutors had granted immunity to National Enquirer chief David Pecker, potentially laying bare his efforts to protect his longtime friend Trump.
Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty this week to campaign finance violations alleging he, Trump and the tabloid were involved in buying the silence of a porn actress and a Playboy model who alleged affairs with Trump.
bY CRIMSON TAZVINZWA//President Donald Trump referred to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman, the only African-American to have served in a senior role in the White House, as a “dog.”
Trump ramps up rhetoric on undocumented immigrants: ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’
President Donald Trump has occasionally told people he doesn’t regret his notorious 2015 remark that Sen. John McCain of Arizona was “not a war hero,” The Washington Post reported on Saturday.
The most well-known instance of feud between the two politicians came during a campaign event in Iowa more than three years ago, when Trump prompted outrage by saying that McCain’s capture during the Vietnam War — during which he was tortured and imprisoned for five years — meant he wasn’t a hero.
“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”
But it wasn’t about that if you ask Omarosa Manigault Newman.
“He was certainly going after him because of his race,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews ahead of the release of her tell-all book about the current White House administration.
One of the paradoxes of Donald Trump’s election was that it seemed like a dramatic repudiation of Barack Obama — after the first black president, a birther; after a cool liberal academic, a roaring populist; after a multicultural “world man,” an American nationalist — and yet it happened at a time when Obama was quite popular.
