Donald Trump

Late to the party

Featured image E. Jean Carroll, a longtime women’s advice columnist, has accused President Trump of sexually assaulting her more than two decades ago in the dressing room of a department store. Carroll, who was 52 years old at the time of the alleged assault, makes this allegation in a book she has just published. I have no trouble believing that Trump has improperly and forcefully touched women in the past. For one »

Trump demonizes Dems. They deserve it, but is it a good idea?

Featured image Scott has written about President Trump’s rally in Florida with which he kicked off his reelection campaign. Scott pointed to this quote from Trump: Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it. Not acceptable. It’s not going to happen. This statement, I feel sure, resonated with those who attended the rally. »

Orlando and dawn of the campaign

Featured image President Trump kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign with a best-ever rally of the faithful at the Amway Center in Orlando last night (video below). Bruce Kesler posted the photo above taken by his son at the rally here at Maggie’s Farm. Bruce also quoted Trump on the opposition: “Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy »

Trump’s McCarthyite enemies

Featured image “McCarthyism” is a charge Democrats like to level against those who make allegations that make them uncomfortable. But Robert Merry, a journalist, publisher, and presidential historian, exposes the McCarthyism in the Democrats’ treatment of President Trump. Merry’s argument is predicated on a key, but generally overlooked, point about McCarthyism. The problem with it wasn’t that there was no reason to believe communists had penetrated our government. Communist penetration was, in »

Happy Father’s Day Everybody! [Updated]

Featured image You know who’s really enjoying this Father’s Day? Donald Trump, that’s who. With these two tweets early this morning, he’s ruined Father’s Day for the media and The Resistance (but I repeat myself): You can just hear liberal heads exploding from coast-to-coast—especially over the bit about staying on if the people demand it. Heh. UPDATE: Sometimes I wonder if Trump is actually the reincarnation of Dr. Pavlov. Certainly USA Today »

President Trump and Race [Updated]

Featured image It has been a long time since David Brooks has written anything worth paying attention to, and his current New York Times column, titled “The Racial Reckoning Comes” and subtitled “Trump has changed our national narrative,” is no exception. But, while I don’t want to critique it in detail, it does prompt a question. Brooks says that when he was young, the predominant narrative about America featured men like Benjamin »

Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren: Soul Siblings?

Featured image Elizabeth Warren has her faults, but she isn’t stupid. In her campaign for the presidency, she has adopted President Trump’s economic nationalism, and gone him one better with a leftist twist. The New York Times headlines: “Elizabeth Warren Proposes ‘Aggressive Intervention’ to Create Jobs.” Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts on Tuesday proposed an economic program of “aggressive intervention on behalf of American workers,” suggesting that as president she would invest »

Trump commemorates D-Day

Featured image This morning President Trump commemorated the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Nazi-occupied northern France by Allied forces. Trump joined French President Emmanuel Macron in honoring the attending veterans of the battle and their fallen colleagues at the site of the invasion just above the beaches of Normandy. I have posted the text of the president’s eloquent and moving speech below the video, which really has to be seen. »

Lost & found: Trump’s GMB interview

Featured image I posted the full video of President Trump’s interview by Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain here yesterday morning, shortly after it had been posted on YouTube by GMB itself. Steve Cates writes from Catallaxy Files to note that he watched it as well until it disappeared. Steve has posted the excerpts still available on YouTube and linked to the full video posted at Bing. “All this is recounted in »

Goodbye to England

Featured image President and Mrs. Trump have finished up a triumphant visit to the U.K. If Brits followed the visit on BBC, they saw news readers ridiculing the President with a replica of the “baby Trump” balloon floated by leftists on their set. No surprise there: fake news. But if you followed the Daily Mail and the Sun, the newspapers that most Brits actually read, the coverage was overwhelmingly positive. The Daily »

Trump does GMB [updated]

Featured image President Trump sat down with Piers Morgan for a 30-minute interview on Good Morning Britain. Touting the interview as a world exclusive, GMB has just posted the video on YouTube. I have posted the video below. Morgan’s interview covers Trump’s state visit and America’s relationship with the United Kingdom. “In the half-hour long chat in Churchill’s historic war rooms,” GMB notes, “Trump clarifies his ‘nasty’ comments about Meghan Markle and »

Trump Visits the U.K.

Featured image President Trump is in the midst of his visit to the United Kingdom, tweeting as he goes. For example: London part of trip is going really well. The Queen and the entire Royal family have been fantastic. The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. Tremendous crowds of well wishers and people that love our Country. Haven’t seen any protests yet, but I’m sure the…. — Donald J. Trump »

Trump demagogues crime issue. . .from the left

Featured image Yesterday, President Trump tweeted: Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected. In particular, African Americans will not be able to vote for you. I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, & helped fix the bad 1994 Bill! By “anyone,” Trump means Joe Biden. In fact, he also tweeted: Super Predator was the term associated »

Steamed in the Rose Garden

Featured image President Trump ejected from his meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to arrive at an agreement on infrastructure spending. He was obviously steamed. One didn’t have to wonder if it was something he or she said. It was something she said — about Trump’s (alleged) Great Coverup. You know, the Great Coverup of the crime he didn’t commit. Trump ejected from the meeting to »

Impeachment mania

Featured image The Dems invested heavily in the Mueller Report, but were disappointed by the outcome. Remember the weeping and wailing about the sanctity of Mueller himself? He required protection at all costs from the Hitlerian madman in the White House. Left free to run wild with a team of subpoena wielding Clintonian partisans, Mueller delivered too much of nothing. The Dems went bust on their investment. Those Clintonian partisans on Mueller’s »

Trump unhappy to see Democrats on Fox News

Featured image Fox News has been hosting Democratic presidential candidates willing to appear on the network. It has staged “town halls” for Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Amy Klobuchar, and has scheduled one for Kirsten Gillibrand. President Trump seems unhappy about this. Before the Fox News event with Buttigieg, he tweeted: Hard to believe that @Fox News is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is »

Trump’s immigration proposal

Featured image President Trump presented his new immigration plan today. It focuses on enhancing border security and basing entry into this country on merit. The plan is perhaps most notable for what it doesn’t do. It offers nothing for the “Dreamers” or even the smaller DACA population. And it does not decrease the amount of legal immigration. For every potential immigrant who loses out due to the slashing of chain migration, another »
