TRUMP JUST GAVE MUELLER ALL THE AMMUNITION HE NEEDS AS HIS PAST WORDS COME BACK TO BITE HIM IN THE ASS

As tragic as it is that we have a president who can’t remember the things he says from one minute to the next, it sure is handy when you’re trying to catch him in a lie. And there has never been a president caught in quite as many lies and Donald J. Trump. Friday’s lie, however, could cost him dearly. After Robert Mueller’s special counsel announced the indictments of 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities for conspiracy, bank fraud, and identity theft, Trump’s lawyer John Dowd was quick to issue a statement declaring that the president was “happy” with the indictments, and that they think he “found the culprits” and “did a good…

Trump just showed his guilty conscience with a panicked response to Mueller’s 13 indictments

Today in Russiagate, we got some juicy indictments. Like clockwork, Trump took to Twitter to issue his daily proclamation of “no collusion,” which rang a little hollow this time, considering. Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that a grand jury just issued indictments to Russian nationals and Russian entities for allegedly interfering in the 2016 election. These indictments specifically mention that any Americans who had contact with the accused did so unwittingly, but Trump preempted the collusion argument with a tweet anyway.   https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/964594780088033282 His guilty conscience was showing and the relevant twittersphere took him to task for it. Atlantic senior editor David Frum pointed out that the indictment specifically calls Trump campaign…

Robert Mueller Sure Does Look Like He’s Taking Down Mike Pence Too

For the last several weeks, it’s becoming more and more clear that the investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller has popular vote loser Donald Trump as its main target, despite Trump claiming that’s not the case. Something else that is becoming more and more clear is that Vice President Mike Pence is a fabricator of the truth who tried to cover up multiple things in the Trump-Russia scandal and will come crashing down alongside his boss. For a while, we wondered if Mueller would take down Trump first and then go after Pence later, or if they’re a package deal. Now, Mueller seems to have given us the answer to…

Trump Jr. just launched an unprovoked attack against US Olympic skater Adam Rippon

Donald Trump Jr. — a man who owes everything in his life to a mix of nepotism and dumb luck — decided to take a shot at an actually accomplished American last night by tweeting dismissively about Adam Rippon. Rippon is an American ice skater currently competing for the United States at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Rippon, America’s first openly gay Olympic athlete to win an Olympic medal, has been in the news for winning his Bronze, but also because of his vocal criticism of the Trump administration. He’s attacked Vice President Mike Pence for his widely publicized and downright medieval anti-LGBTQ stances. Rippon has also already said he…
