The Tuesday press briefing was all over the issue of Trump’s fracas with the Philadelphia Eagles. Sarah Sanders received multiple questions over Trump’s decision to not include the Eagles players in the celebration in their honor Tuesday at the White House. Fewer than five players would have been in attendance had the Eagles remained invited, according to reports.

Sanders cited the low attendance numbers and Trump’s ongoing feud with NFL kneelers as the reason for the cancellation. Sanders had just finished explaining that the anthem protest was not a first amendment issue, saying “It’s about respecting our national anthem and it’s about standing out of pride for that,” when there was an outburst.

Her answer was not good enough for Urban Radio Network White House Correspondent April Ryan, who began to yell without being called upon. “Is the president aware that … ” Ryan yelled. “Sorry, Stephen, go ahead,” Sarah said to the reporter she was attempting to call upon. The tense exchange continued until Sanders sighed and let Ryan finish her question.

Ryan said, “The underlying issue that keeps going about disrespect of the flag and soldiers,” She said, “Is the president aware that taking the knee is about police involved shootings?”

Sanders said bluntly, “The president has made his position crystal clear,” Sanders said before getting interrupted again by Ryan. “I let you rudely interrupt me and your colleagues,” Sanders snapped, “I’m going to ask that you allow me to finish my answer.”

Sanders continued to an unruly Ryan, “I would be happy to answer it if you stop talking long enough.”

Ultimately, Sanders said “The president has made his position crystal clear on this topic. He feels strongly that standing for our National Anthem is something that we should do, something that matters to what makes our country special and unique and what sets us apart. He’s not going to waver on that.He’s not going to apologize for it.” Sanders continued, “Frankly, more than 70% of Americans agree with him on that matter. This has been made a political argument of which the president is not going to back down from and he’s been clear on it.”

Ryan continued to yell at Sanders, to which she said, “April, I’ve addressed your question and I’m not going to continue to engage with you.”

Ryan continued the belligerence, shouting if the White House will address the issue of racial injustice.

“I’m going to deal with the issue of addressing your colleague’s question,” Sanders declared, sternly looking onto the next reporter.

After the fireworks, that reporter said “Always happy to yield to a colleague … ”

My advise to Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be to never acknowledge April Ryan, no matter how many times she shouts out her stupid questions. If Ryan gets too disruptive, she can be ousted from the press conference. Now I'd really love to see that happen. It would be more of a memorable event than the Presidents visit to Singapore.

As others just suggested, they need to punish them with "time out" because this free-for-all shouting match, the loudest mouth gets to speak, is ludicrous for a formal White House conference!!! She needs to be given indefinite time out!

Sara Sanders should have the right to have these stupid so called reporters REMOVED for being such ASSHOLES.

Hmph. Ms. Sanders would be within her rights to yank the press credentials of those who insist on interrupting, on trying to catch her in a "gotcha" moment or other disrespect towards the President. The reporters granted press credentials should adhere to some basic rules and if they cannot or will not abide by those rules, have the White House security pull the reporter aside and say "I've been asked to escort you to your vehicle, sir, and to confiscate your press credentials. Please surrender them." Yes, the reporter will be livid … Tough. Their employers will have to get a new reporter who will comply with the rules of common courtesy or the reporter will have to call Sarah to kiss her tuchus to get their press pass back. Either that or the entire organization can be on the outside looking in. Freedom of the press is not freedom to abuse their White House access or representatives of the President, regardless of party. Jim Acosta is well known for pushing his luck, accosting Sarah Sanders and by extension the President himself. Why? Because Trump. Why do you think Madcow probably isn't welcome in the White House?

Sarah should have asked her how exactly kneeling for the anthem on a football field helps advance the cause? It does nothing to stop any shootings, it only makes them feel like they're actually doing something!

By standards which have been set w/i the last year, it doesn't matter what I say - I'm a racist. Therefore - I AM! Therefore, you'll TOTALLY understand when I tell you April Ryan is a racist NIGGER, A FUCKING RACIST NIGGER. SHE NEEDS TO BE STRUNG UP BY HER NIGGER HEAD...DONE!

Ryan and Acosta need to have their press passes pulled until they learn a little bit of manners and respect. They have no idea what either one of them is. They are loud and boisterous, rude and talk over even their own colleagues. Boot their asses for a month and maybe they would learn a little respect.

April Ryan is a loud, foul mouth, RACIST, Ignorant Black Bitch that has the opinion that everybody must let her run her dirty mouth and that she is entitled to do what she wants. I say she should be BANNED from all White House Briefings until she learns how to be a polite Human being.

Typical loudmouth(insert whatever word you want here)! Uneducated in protocol and common courtesy and they cry and whine because so few respect them as a race. THIS IS WHY. I assure you, the racist accusations will be forthcoming from her soon. And the idiot who said he would yeild, only did so he wouldnt be labeled a racist himself. Wutta Fukked up world we live in.

Plenty of hateful remarks here pointing out personal opinions with name calling. Doesn't sound much different then those on the opposite side. Hate breeds hate and no matter how righteous some people feel their comments are by spouting the type of judgement they think needs to be brought down on those who are being discussed, and discussed is the key word.

Why anyone would refer to these parasites as journalists is a bit puzzling. Enough of these press briefings; primarily because they only ask questions in attempt to bring down our President. What's more insulting is them yelling at Sarah as she exits the briefing room. Pathetic.
Robert June 6, 2018

All Sarah can do is deflect and not answer questions directly. She gets caught in a lie every time! As the designated spear catcher for the cartoon presidents lies her job must be extremely difficult. April Ryan is doing her job and she's doing her job well in spite of the lies and spin coming out of Sarah's mouth.

I still say that there should be someone in the room that goes down and slaps these so-called journalists up side the head when they get stupid. This ryan should have been knocked right out. She has a problem with law enforcement shooting criminals or thugs who attempt to do them harm -- she needs to take it up with the criminals --- NOT THE PRESIDENT. These phony protests are just that -- phony as a 3 dollar bill.

The media follows the argument about police shootings and discrimination. This argument is bullshit. If discrimination exists it is that too many blacks are hired by the nfl. If the players really care about blacks being shot they would be protesting that something needs to be done about black on black shootings. They would be all over the democrats because they run all of the major murder cities. When you follow an idiot communist like kapernitwit you will not get any sympathy.

It appears EVERYTHING is about race in one form or another. Anyone who dares disagree with this issue will be attacked with no negotiation possible. Obama was a smashing success in tearing our nation apart in every possible way. There's one thing I respect about the Liberals: They NEVER compromise on their principles no matter how bad they are. It's their way or you will be destroyed if you don't fight back ! THAT is the new and improved, "fundamentally transformed" America !

When i joined the army for genuine patriotic reasons near the end of the 'Nam era - i took a vow to uphold the CONSTITUTION of the United States of America. Not some asswad president or congress. Not some Supreme Court moron-jority, not a place: THE CONSTITUTION. The Constitution is in a very real sense the ONLY America. It lists our freedoms by acknowledgment - it DOES NOT GIVE OUR FREEDOMS TO US - those are an inseparable part of us. That's why they are called inherent and inalienable. i joined so that people COULD HAVE FREE SPEECH and say what they thought. i don't give a shit if Trump is trying to turn the reason for the kneeling (which i don't really care about - it's the freedom to kneel that is critical) from a reaction to social injustice at home, into some bullshit form of worshipping our military who are sent overseas agains all international law, to terrorize and illegally invade other sovereign nations. Our military has blindly obeyed the psychopaths running (ruining) this country and murdered more innocent people than the rest of the world combined since probably 1950 - certainly since the 60s. We have NO right at all to be in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, to have killed (sanctioned - then given the weapons to our CIA funded ISIS/Al Nusra) Ghadaffi and destroyed a MUCH more free nation called Libya. EVERY ONE OF THESE NATIONS was put into conflict by the United States - exactly when they stopped taking in only the "petrodollar" for their oil. So there is NOTHING involving our national security in these attacks against innocent and defenseless peoples - it is ALL about rich billionaire parasites enslaving you and your brainwashed opinions in order to get you to kill your kid for their fuckin' profits. Wake up and stop playing their game like you really are their idiot slaves.

April should be fired or not allowed in the press room- period. She redefined her role from a journalist to a politician and only journalists are allowed in the press room.

So, let me understand, this rude reporter says the reason for taking a knee is due police shootings of black civilians. I thought the police are state controlled positions not federal. My question is why are they taking a knee and disrespecting our national flag over a or many states issues. Seems to me if they have finally decided on a single issue at this point then they should show contempt for the entity that controls the so called issue. Just think these are rich people who find it easier to take a knee" then to use their fame and wealth to constructively work towards a solution.

Revoke her Press ass for 30 days, and give her employer written notice that a second offense will be for a year. A third offense will be a permanent ban until Mr. Trump is out of office. Also, it's time to face thee facts that it's the blacks who cause 99% of their own problems in life. If the police were as bad as they claim, the body count would be dozens or hundred killed by police officers, per day. The NFL has shit their own bed, yet they expect special treatment. They are supposed to be grown men, not behaving like six year old girls

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

The Democrats demonized President Trump for using the word ‘fight’. Trump’s attorneys responded today with a collage of clips from each of the Democrats in the room using the word ‘fight’.

This portion of today’s events on Capitol Hill was excellent. The Democrats claim that because President Trump used the word ‘fight’ in his speech on January 6th in Washington D.C. However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
