Michelle and Barack Obama just issued a rare joint statement to Florida massacre survivors

On the heels of last week’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, the Parkland, Florida students have unwittingly been thrust into the national spotlight in the gun debate that is now surging throughout the country. In a rare move, Michelle Obama took to Twitter on behalf of herself and former President Barack Obama to issue words of encouragement to those students. https://twitter.com/MichelleObama/status/966483852834287621 In fact, a Republican Congress blocked Obama’s calls for tougher gun reforms in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting, in which a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Connecticut. Meanwhile, the GOP has continued to press for even more guns, and even advocates for arming our nation’s teachers…

Everyone Is Laughing At Huckabee Sanders For Saying ‘Unlike Obama,’ Trump Is Tough On Russia

President Barack Obama warned Donald Trump against hiring Michael Flynn as national security adviser just after the 2016 election but the former reality show star refused to listen. Flynn had been fired by the Obama administration and after he resigned in disgrace from the Trump administration, the so-called president called him a ‘wonderful guy’ then proceeded to blast the ‘fake media.’ Obama applied sanctions to Russia in January of 2017 as punishment for interfering in the 2016 election. Trump recently failed to impose sanctions against the hostile foreign power.

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 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…
