Trump rages at ‘pee tape’ dossier on Twitter, compares FBI to ‘pile of garbage’

#Donald Trump is not a fan of #Hillary Clinton or the #FBI and just one day after Christmas he decided to go on the attack once again. Deciding to quote Fox News, the president railed against a previous FBI investigation into Clinton's private email server. Trump on Clinton During the 2016 presidential election, questions were raised as to whether or not Donald Trump was in cahoots with Russia. The former host of "The Apprentice" was forced to push back at allegations of possible collusion with the Kremlin, which increased as he praised Russian President Vladimir Putin and refused to release his tax returns, becoming the first major presidential candidate not to do so in the last 40 years. Since the election, several well-respected…

Rosie O’Donnell just slammed Paul Ryan in perfect Christmas morning tweet

Hypocritically religious House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted out this Christmas message the other day: https://twitter.com/SpeakerRyan/status/944700120968331265 Fine sentiments, but the denizens of Twitter were not going to let the man who led the fight to destroy health care and reduce needed social services to millions of needy Americans get away with issuing pious platitudes without pointing out his abandonment of Christian principles in his legislative agenda. Shannon Watts, the founder of the anti-gun violence group Moms Demand, fired one of the first volleys: https://twitter.com/shannonrwatts/status/944949424962150400 TV Host and comedienne Rosie O’Donnell saw Ms. Watts tweet and added her own inimitable commentary. https://twitter.com/Rosie/status/945177776289734657 The House Speaker regularly professes his Catholic faith, however, his true…

Melania Trump just tweeted a disastrous Christmas photo and immediately paid the price

Melania Trump took over the Christmas spirit duties that her husband completely abdicated today, tweeting out this telling photo showing the first couple having “fun” tracking down a bearded foreigner surreptitiously entering unaware Americans’ homes while they sleep. With the two facing away from each other and speaking into their secure land-lines to better access the intelligence agencies’ tracking data presumably, the fun was practically palpable. The denizens of the internet took a break from their holiday wrapping to react appropriately: https://twitter.com/karolina_p/status/945076649418145792 https://twitter.com/markchildress/status/945081391871676418 https://www.facebook.com/ODAction/posts/706905696175649 https://twitter.com/KTKeith/status/945071454105886720 https://twitter.com/briantylercohen/status/945084231520325633 https://twitter.com/KoriOlsen1/status/945081480505520128 https://twitter.com/lukeroyes/status/945084210296979456 https://twitter.com/Cassizzi/status/945075839879827456 https://twitter.com/Viki_in_Florida/status/945084936431833089 https://twitter.com/LadyModBlog/status/945084877136973824 Nothing like a perfect tweet to kick off Christmas eve.

Trump just attacked Comey and his deputy in an unhinged Twitter rant

After claiming the FBI was in “tatters”, President Trump took to Twitter today to shred the agency’s reputation even further, attacking the one institution that had the temerity to investigate his ties to Russia and leaving the majority of Americans wondering exactly what he must be trying to hide. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/944665687292817415 You have to admire Trump’s ability to pack so many lies and insults into a single tweet. His accusations that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal was somehow tainted insults the dedicated FBI agents who tired ceaselessly on the case by questioning their impartiality. Never mind that Republicans in Congress with no hint of impartiality couldn’t find anything…

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter was just forced to step down as CEO

This afternoon, Papa John’s announced the pizza company’s founder, largest shareholder, and chairman of the board, John Schnatter, will be stepping down from his position as CEO, after a backlash to his remarks criticizing NFL players for kneeling during the National Anthem to protest racial injustice. https://twitter.com/APBusiness/status/943961299536539648 Company stocks have plummeted 13% since Schnatter said, “The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country.” He said the protests were hurting pizza sales, but his remarks invited praise from white supremacists, creating a PR nightmare for the NFL sponsor. Schnatter, a well-known Republican donor, blamed racial polarization on the men standing up against the unpunished police murders of unarmed black people. In so doing, he sounded like…
