Sarah Drops Hammer HARD At Reporter Who Asked About Trump Being Removed From Office

Published

on

Washington Post editor Bob Woodard’s explosive and salacious book was released yesterday and through a series of coordinated “leaks” if you want to call them that, Woodward’s book – aptly titled “Fear” has dominated headlines in the remaining two months heading towards the 2018 midterm elections.

Full of innuendo and explosive anecdotes about the supposed lengths to which members of the Trump administration have allegedly gone to in an effort to stop President Trump from acting on what they believed were dangerous impulses, it is interesting to note that Woodward’s Watergate colleague, Carl Bernstein, was recently publically called out after helping to author a widely debunked story alleging that Michael Cohen had evidence that President Trump gave the green light for the now-infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting.

Known for anonymous sources and publishing what many would view as simply propaganda rather than actually reporting the news, WaPo is not known to be a particular friend to the Trump administration. WaPo reported Woodard’s book contained details of  “staffers reportedly went as far as grabbing papers off the president’s desk to stop him from acting rashly. Woodward’s book was reportedly drawn from meeting notes, personal diaries and government documents given to him by administration officials, as well as hundreds of hours of interviews with administration officials and “other principals.”

Naturally, President Trump famously took Bernstein to task via social media for his lies and storytelling, referring to him as a “degenerate fool”  as well as speaking of Bernstein’s own many skeletons including an alleged gambling addiction and a widely publicized divorce from ex-wife Nora Ephron. One wonders what President Trump has in store for Woodward…

With the most explosive claims having a common theme, Woodard writes either Senior Trump administration officials are expressing their frustration about the president’s behavior or the book tells stories of President Trump insulting the various members of his cabinet and his administrative staff.

An excerpt reads – “Woodward illustrates how the dread in Trump’s orbit became all-encompassing over the course of Trump’s first year in office, leaving some staff members and Cabinet members confounded by the president’s lack of understanding about how government functions and his inability and unwillingness to learn.”

One of the most scathing quotes in the entire book is attributed to current Chief of Staff John Kelly.  Woodard claims Kelly referred to President Trump as an “idiot” adding that he had gone “off the rails” and that “I don’t know why any of us are here.”

The excerpt reads fully – “White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly frequently lost his temper and told colleagues that he thought the president was “unhinged,” Woodward writes. In one small group meeting, Kelly said of Trump: “He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”

According to the Washington Examiner, Kelly vehemently denies any claims he said any such thing about President Trump, stating –

“Kelly said that Woodward’s characterization is patently false and that it is simply another “attempt to smear people close to” Trump.

“The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true,” Kelly said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly added. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.'”

Monday’s press briefing saw outrageous questions and wild speculation amongst the press pool that President Trump could potentially be removed from office under the auspice of the 25th amendment. In summary, the 25th amendment would allow for the vice president, in this case, Mike Pence, to become president in the event of death, resignation, removal from office or impairment that prevents the current president from fulfilling his or her duties.

Naturally, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders had quite a bit to say in response to that and promptly gave the media a piece of her mind over the rabid speculation after an alleged “reporter” asked her if the White House was at all concerned about how reports from “mainstream” media outlets claiming Trump’s “crazy talk” could spell trouble for his presidency.

The reporter stated – “There’s a lot of talk about that on many of the mainstream media outlets.”

Sanders issued back a fiery response, stating – “I think we would say that it’s about as ridiculous as most of Bob Woodward’s book. The fact that that’s actually being honestly discussed is ridiculous and, frankly, it’s insulting to the nearly 62 million people that came out and overwhelmingly supported this president, voted for him, supported his agenda, and are watching and cheering on as he successfully implements that agenda every single day.”

Among other wild claims, the book also claims Kelly’s predecessor, Reince Priebus, was also on the receiving end scathing commentary from President Trump, who reportedly told former staff secretary Rob Porter to ignore Preibus’s orders. President Trump is then said to have described the then-chief-of-staff as “a little rat” who “just scurries around.”

The excerpt reads – “Reince Priebus, Kelly’s predecessor, fretted that he could do little to constrain Trump from sparking chaos. Woodward writes that Priebus dubbed the presidential bedroom, where Trump obsessively watched cable news and tweeted, “the devil’s workshop,” and said early mornings and Sunday evenings, when the president often set off tweetstorms, were “the witching hour.”

Trump apparently had little regard for Priebus. He once instructed then-staff secretary Rob Porter to ignore Priebus, even though Porter reported to the chief of staff, saying that Priebus was “‘like a little rat. He just scurries around.'”

Then there were comments made about Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told that he was past his prime. The excerpt reads – “Trump told Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, a wealthy investor eight years his senior: “I don’t trust you. I don’t want you doing any more negotiations. … You’re past your prime.”

Regarding former National Security Advisor HR McMaster, Woodward’s book claims President Trump said he wore tacky suits that made him look like “a beer salesman.” The excerpt reads – “Few in Trump’s orbit were protected from the president’s insults. He often mocked former national security adviser H.R. McMaster behind his back, puffing up his chest and exaggerating his breathing as he impersonated the retired Army general, and once said McMaster dresses in cheap suits, “like a beer salesman.'”

One of the harshest and most demeaning criticisms was reserved for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom President Trump is accused of mocking as “mentally retarded” and a “traitor”. The excerpt reads – “A near-constant subject of withering presidential attacks was Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump told Porter that Sessions was a “traitor” for recusing himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, Woodward writes. Mocking Sessions’ accent, Trump added, “This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.'”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis has also refuted claims made in the book that mention him specifically. One of many things Woodward claims Mattis said is that he left a meeting with President Trump and told “close associates” that the president had the understanding of a “fifth- or sixth-grader.” The excerpt reads – “After Trump left a meeting with Defense Secretary James Mattis on North Korea, Woodward recounts, “Mattis was particularly exasperated and alarmed, telling close associates that the president acted like — and had the understanding of — ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.’”

Mattis minced no words and said in response – “The contemptuous words about the President attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence. While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility.”

Florida Election About To Do What’s NEVER Been Done Before – ‘Laughingstock Of World’

Published

on

...

* By

Florida has officially become the laughingstock of the world over their corrupt and incompetent management of the midterm elections. It’s simply disgraceful. Currently, Republican senatorial candidate Rick Scott still maintains his lead over Democrat incumbent Senator Bill Nelson. But a machine recount has now failed and they will now be forced to do a manual recount.

Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes is at the center of this monstrous mess and President Trump has called for her to be fired and removed over it. More votes keep magically appearing that allegedly add to the tally for the Democrats – that’s called voter fraud.

Sarah Palin has more on the embarrassing antics in Florida:

Republican senatorial candidate Rick Scott still maintains his lead over Democrat incumbent Senator Bill Nelson, but the election drama in Florida is heading into its next chapter after a machine recount effort failed. Three counties missed the Thursday afternoon deadline to submit their results of a machine recount.

Hillsborough, Broward, and Palm Beach counties are holding the entire election in limbo after two flat-out missed the recount deadline and Broward County submitted their results two minutes late. The timing certainly seems suspicious as Broward election officials commented that they finished tallying the votes earlier in the day.

From BizPac Review:

Citing broken down machines, Palm Beach County didn’t make much effort to get to the finish line, while Broward raced to the deadline and actually finished the recount before 3 p.m.

But in a display of incompetence so egregious it’s hard to believe it wasn’t planned, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes suspiciously turned the new figures in two minutes after the deadline, Judicial Watch reported:

A Judicial Watch investigative team is on the ground monitoring the debacle in south Florida and attorneys were present in Broward until the recount was completed just minutes before the clock ran out. However, the county uploaded the results two minutes too late which means the state will likely stick to the original tallies submitted on Saturday.

So why did Broward miss the deadline after having the results in their hands and ready to report? One can only guess it had something to do with the fact that Scott would have gained more than 700 votes.

Had Broward officials submitted the results just two minutes earlier, the Republican candidate would have furthered his lead. But, since the results came in late, election officials will use the previously recorded information.

BizPac Review:

Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson, gained an additional 779 votes in the recount.

Scott saw an initial lead of around 60,000 votes on election night dwindle all the way down to just over 12,000, thanks in large part to Broward and Palm Beach submitting votes after the polls closed.

And with the potential to add to that lead, Snipes sent the numbers late and Florida law stipulates that when the deadline is missed the last unofficial count is then used — meaning the tardiness cost Scott 779 votes.

As the Daily Caller reports, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker said: “We have been the laughingstock of the world, election after election, and we chose not to fix this.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton expressed his frustration with the recount process and called echoed the line, saying: “On a day when a federal judge said Florida is the ‘laughingstock of the world election after election,’ all but three of the state’s 67 counties met the recount deadline. Hillsborough and Palm Beach counties failed to complete machine recounts of their midterm election ballots by the 3 p.m. Thursday deadline and Broward missed it by just two minutes.”

So—what happens now? Florida will initiate its first statewide hand recounts ever, the Miami Herald reports.

And, via the Associated Press:

Election offices across Florida will have to hand count at a bare minimum almost 54,000 ballots in the U.S. Senate race.

A survey of 64 of Florida’s 67 counties by The Associated Press put the number of overvotes and undervotes Thursday evening at 53,769 ballots in the U.S. Senate race between incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson and GOP Gov. Rick Scott.

The remaining counties have until Sunday to finish submitting their hand recount data, CBS News reports.

As the senatorial race will continue on, the race for the state’s governorship seems to be over.

Through the recount effort, Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis held a 0.41 percent lead which is enough to avoid another recount. From BizPac Review:

As a result of the machine recount, Republican Ron DeSantis still holds a 33,683 vote lead over Democratic candidate and media darling Andrew Gillum, who gained just a single vote in the recount.

With a margin of 0.41 percent, the difference is high enough under state law to avoid a mandatory manual recount, which effectively ends the race — USA Today called it for DeSantis.

Gillum, who has not filed any legal action yet and has no other play, refused to throw the towel in.

“I remain humbled by your support and the great honor the people of Florida have shown me as I prepare to serve as your next governor,” DeSantis said in a statement after the result signaled his lead, via the Miami Herald.

Ocasio-Cortez Complains She’s Already Being Discriminated Against On Capitol Hill

Published

on

...

* By

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a number of things… a Democratic Socialist, the nation’s youngest congresswoman and a professional victim and whiner extraordinaire. Her progressive shoes had barely hit DC dirt when she started complaining about racism and sexism while declaring that she wasn’t ready to support Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker.

Ocasio-Cortez was quick to prove her radical status on The Hill by making an appearance at a sit-in protest by a group of climate activists calling themselves the “Sunrise Movement” which was held outside Nancy Pelosi’s office. The Daily Wire has more on the moves by this aggressive female socialist that whined she couldn’t afford an apartment in DC:

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was only elected a week ago, but she’s already causing a stir in Washington. Her first big appearance was at a climate change protest — at the office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who the representative-elect has signaled she isn’t ready to support for her bid to take back the role of House Speaker.

The nation’s youngest congresswoman has also been sounding the alarm over racism and sexism she suggests she’s already experienced on Capitol Hill.

“Dem Spouse + Member luncheon were at the same time today. I was sent to spouse event,” she wrote late Wednesday. “Last night I was stopped bc it was assumed I was an intern/staffer.”

“Next time try believing women + people of color when they talk about their experiences being a woman or person of color,” she concluded.

On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez triggered some of her fellow Democrats when she made a surprise appearance at a sit-in protest by a group of climate activists calling themselves the “Sunrise Movement” staged outside of the highest ranking Democrat in the House, and her potential future boss. The Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reports:

Ocasio-Cortez addressed the protesters, who were holding signs asking for a “Green New Deal” from Democrats in charge, and demanding “Green Jobs for All,” shook hands, and gave high-fives to the 50 or so protesters who blocked the entrance to Pelosi’s office.

The event marked Ocasio-Cortez’s first visit to the soon-to-be Speaker’s office, and leftists were pretty miffed that she introduced herself to her Democratic colleagues not by embracing inter-party collegiality, but by openly disagreeing with her party’s long-time leadership.

The newly elected representative slammed her critics online Thursday.

“When I respectfully join young people in an action promoting climate action while encouraging leadership decisions, it’s ‘divisive,'” she wrote. “Yet when *other* Dems hold the Speaker vote hostage unless conservative concessions are made, it’s business as usual.”

In the post, she links to a report by The Hill about a bid to rob Pelosi of her throne. Here’s how the piece begins:

Democrats in the Problem Solvers Caucus are proving to be the latest hurdle to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) rise to the Speakership.

Ten Democrats in the bipartisan, 48-member group are vowing to withhold their support for Pelosi — or any other Speaker nominee — unless the candidate commits, in writing, to certain changes in House rules designed to empower rank-and-file lawmakers and break partisan gridlock.

Pelosi, while voicing general support for the group’s ideas, has not issued a written commitment to adopting them. And the Democratic co-chairman of the group, Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), said Tuesday that he won’t support her without such assurances.

Ocasio-Cortez has also been in the news this week for her opposition to Amazon’s big HQ2 deal, which she touted as an example of how she can unite people while holding true to her principles.
