There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!” Trump wrote. People criticized the tweet for not actually calling out white supremacy or even mentioning Charlottesville in the tweet.

Donald Trump VS The NFL — Everything You Need To Know!

What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly — OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding [...] What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Donald Trump Blames The "Crooked Media" For America"s Social & Political Divide While Defending His Charlottesville Response!

When it comes to violent rallies that result in the death of an anti-white supremacy activist, Donald Trump likes to blame "both sides." But when he's talking about the giant divide of the country he runs, the president knows only one entity is at fault: the crooked media! Video: Trump Supporters Are Creepin' In AHS: Cult Trailer! POTUS [...] When it comes to violent rallies that result in the death of an anti-white supremacy activist, Donald Trump likes to blame "both sides." But when he's talking about the giant divide of the country he runs, the president knows only one entity is at fault: the crooked media! Video: Trump Supporters Are Creepin' In AHS: Cult Trailer! POTUS launched a new attack on the "sick people" in the media at a campaign-style rally on Tuesday night, labeling it as "the source of the division in our country." He told a pumped up crowd in Phoenix, Arizona: "These are sick people. If you wanted to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media." The rant came as Trump defended his response to the deadly Charlottesville rally earlier this month, which began in protest of the planned removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. Related: Wife Of U.S. Treasury Secretary Ices IG Haters! Unsurprisingly -- and kind of impressively, tbh -- the president divided his supporters further from the other side in the same breath he blamed the media for the social and political divide, hissing: "It's time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions and yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage." Trump then spoke on how the media reacted to his responses to Charlottesville. After reading a version of his initial statement that left out the part that faulted "many sides" for the violence, he said: "They don't report the facts. Just like they don't want to report that I spoke out forcefully against hatred, bigotry and violence and strongly condemned the neo-nazis, the white supremacists and the KKK. I openly called for unity, healing and love and they know it because they were all there." To his credit, he did condemn the white supremacist groups -- after commenting that some "very fine people" were among the neo-Nazis and KKK protesting the removal of the Confederate leader. Related: Trump Supporters Cancel 37 Rallies Across The Country! The president faced criticism from the media and political leaders -- both Democrats and Republicans -- over his initial response to the violence. But in Trump's eyes, it was only his third statement on the incident that mattered. He complained: "I hit 'em with neo-Nazi. I hit 'em with everything. I got the white supremacist, the neo-Nazi. I got 'em all in there. Let's see. KKK? We have KKK. I got 'em all. So they're having a hard time. So what did they say, right? 'It should have been sooner; he's a racist.'" The crowd at the Phoenix Convention Center seemed to agree, as some were reported to yell out profanities and spit out insults at reporters during the rally. But, you know, this one-sided lib-trash post is what's dividing the country........»»

How's that going? When it comes to Trump's manufacturing council, not very well. Related: Late Night Sounds Off On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists 45's failure to immediately condemn the alt-right Nazis and their violent actions in Charlottesville -- and continued failure to call it out as domestic terrorism -- has led to a fourth CEO leaving the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative, following execs for Merck, Under Armour, and Intel. This time it's Scott Paul of the Alliance For American Manufacturing, a nonprofit founded to help keep manufacturing jobs in the United States, who tweeted: I'm resigning from the Manufacturing Jobs Initiative because it's the right thing for me to do. — Scott Paul (@ScottPaulAAM) August 15, 2017 BTW, Paul is a Democrat who was unhappy with the difference between the trade policies of candidate Barack Obama and President Obama. Clearly he must realize by now that Trump is not the man to help anyone. Photos: Protesters Flock To Trump Tower After Charlottesville! How is Trump responding to all these companies publicly shaming him? He called them out as "grandstanders" on Tuesday, tweeting: For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2017 Really? All-caps and monosyllabic. He sure knows how to woo his base. Meanwhile, several companies are staying. GE, Dow Chemical, Whirlpool, Campbell Soup, International Paper, and Nucor all released statements condemning racism and intolerance -- but said essentially that their participation on the council was too important to quit in protest. (Dell just said there was "no change" to its status quo with Trump.) This is the same problem as with Republicans during the election. Everyone is fine condemning the consistently awful things Trump says, but they're too afraid of losing a seat at the table to actually distance themselves from the POTUS. Well, it's time to take a stand, boys. Because if you're not going to expressly denounce this man and his actions, you're turning a blind eye and letting it happen. Sound familiar?

I don’t want to go quickly…I want to know the facts.

A new bill has been introduced to the House of Representatives that would require the President to undergo a physical and mental health exam to see if he's psychologically stable enough to stay in office. Rep. Zoe Lofgren introduced the bill on Friday, which would call on Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Cabinet to remove Trump from office should the results be unfavorable. In a statement announcing the bill, Lofgren questioned if the president is suffering from "early stage dementia," inquiring whether or not he is "mentally and emotionally stable" enough to lead a country. Related: Trump Administration As Game Of Thrones Characters! Lofgren, who is not a psychiatrist or psychologist, pointed out that Trump has yet to release a "serious" medical evaluation to the public. Though she doesn't expect the bill to pass, the representative for California's 19th district told Mercury News the legislature "will stimulate conversation," adding that the Kook-in-Chief should go along with the evaluation if "he cares about the country." The bill, which would invoke the 25th Amendment in allowing the VP and a majority of Cabinet members to remove the president from power, stems from Trump's widely criticized response to the Charlottesville white supremacist rally. Lofgren has already made her thought's on the matter clear, tweeting: Something is seriously wrong with President Trump. Why can't he just condemn Nazis? Unscripted words today show who he really is. Shameful! — Rep. Zoe Lofgren (@RepZoeLofgren) August 16, 2017 Other politicians have suggested booting 45 out of the White House with the 25th Amendment, which is why Lofgren is calling for Pence and other Cabinet members to "quickly secure ... medical and psychiatric professionals," to evaluate Trump's mental health. She explained: "If it was a physical ailment, you would be getting the advice of doctors. The same thing should be true to take a look at his stability here." Sounds like a great plan in theory, but this is definitely a long shot. Anyone with eyes can tell that the president is a few floors short of a Trump Tower, but his failure to condemn his strongest voting demographic may be a very sane -- even shrewd -- move. Maybe there's a diabolical evaluation we can make him take instead?.....»»

For years the Trump family has allegedly been using the Trump Foundation to steal from real charities, and it's disgusting. But the New York State Attorney General's office didn't. They announced on Thursday they're suing the Trump Foundation for what they call "a pattern of persistent illegal conduct." Related: How The Eric Trump Foundation Allegedly Stole From St. Jude's Children's Hospital The AG has named the President but also Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Eric Trump in their lawsuit. See the accusations against the Trump family (below)! The AG's office writes: "The petition filed today alleges a pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade, that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump's personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations." "The Attorney General's investigation found that the Trump Foundation raised in excess of $2.8 million in a manner designed to influence the 2016 presidential election at the direction and under the control of senior leadership of the Trump presidential campaign." Seriously important note: while the big focus is on the money given to the Trump campaign (because Dishonest Don isn't as rich as he pretends to be and could never actually finance his own run), remember they've allegedly been at this for OVER 10 YEARS! AG Barbara D. Underwood, who has been in the office just weeks now, had this to say: "As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality. This is not how private foundations should function and my office intends to hold the foundation accountable for its misuse of charitable assets." New York state is demanding restitution of the money, fines, and dissolution of the Trump Foundation completely -- with Trump not allowed to start another charity for 10 years and his kids for 1 year each. Frankly, for people stealing from charity, that sounds light to us. They are also referring their info to the F.E.C. and the I.R.S., which should have a lot to say. Hey, maybe Trump's taxes will finally be under audit! Ha! Related: All Of Trump's Many Scandals EXPLAINED!

Is Trump About To Fire Mueller?? Look At The Evidence!

OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded [...] OK, we're not going to keep you in suspense. The answer to bet on is OF COURSE Donald Trump is going to fire Robert Mueller. The only questions are When? and What are we going to do about it? Many have been calling for months for the protection of the Special Prosecutor's investigation, which has already yielded multiple guilty pleas and apparently uncovered Russian agents who compromised the 2016 election. Related: EXCLUSIVE! Donald Trump Jr.'s Secret Affair With Aubrey O'Day Revealed! Congress has passed no legislation, with some Republicans saying essentially there's no need to buy an umbrella because it's not raining yet. After this weekend's actions and tweetstorm by the President, we think the evidence is pretty clear. Ch-ch-check it out (below)! 1.) Trump actively encouraged the quick firing of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe before his official retirement date -- keeping him from receiving his pension. And Jeff Sessions went through with it, despite McCabe being a witness in the Mueller probe and Sessions supposedly being recused from anything related to the investigation. Sessions faced no repercussions, so now he's obviously free to fire Mueller when Trump tells him to. Related: Why Trump's Next Picks For Secretary Of State & CIA Director Should Scare You 2.) Trump went on a Twitter rant over the weekend, using Mueller's name for the first time, calling fired FBI leaders James Comey and McCabe liars and saying outright the probe should end. As the House Intelligence Committee has concluded, there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump Campaign. As many are now finding out, however, there was tremendous leaking, lying and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, Justice & State. #DrainTheSwamp — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2018 Trump's toadie Devin Nunes ended the House Intelligence Committee's Russia probe without interviewing all witnesses or cooperating with any of the Democrats on the committee in drafting its report. Trump is now using that to discredit the entire investigation. The Mueller probe should never have been started in that there was no collusion and there was no crime. It was based on fraudulent activities and a Fake Dossier paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC, and improperly used in FISA COURT for surveillance of my campaign. WITCH HUNT! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 The investigation actually began based on information from many sources, including in his own team. The FBI had found Carter Page was approached by Russian agents years before Trump's campaign. And that "Fake Dossier" was first paid for by Republicans. It was just garden variety opposition research that turned scandalous because TRUMP IS CONNECTED TO RUSSIAN CRIMINALS. (And also possibly watersports.) Why does the Mueller team have 13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans? Another Dem recently added...does anyone think this is fair? And yet, there is NO COLLUSION! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 18, 2018 Zero Republicans? Mueller is a Republican. Also, all his bosses are Republicans. James Comey is a Republican. Andrew McCabe is a Republican. The FBI is FILLED with Republicans. Separate from that though... the notion that Democrats can't serve their country as law enforcement agents is despicable, tyrannical garbage. What he really means is, if anyone ever disagrees with him or accuses him of crimes, even with evidence, they're biased. BULLSHIT. A total WITCH HUNT with massive conflicts of interest! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2018 This is totally what innocent people say... Team Trump keeps trying to have it both ways, saying Trump is just kidding or merely expressing feelings on his Twitter account when they want the American people to look away -- but also referring the press to it for his official statements. Also, Trump does make announcements on it, like when he fired Rex Tillerson. So as unhinged as it is, this is Trump's official word. Related: Trump Got PISSED After Sanders Accidentally Told The Wrong Lies About Stormy Daniels 3.) Even one of Trump's lawyers, John Dowd, called for the end of the Mueller probe this weekend. He declared to CNN in a statement: "I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt dossier." That's the President's personal lawyer saying that. 4.) What happened Monday morning was even more concrete. Trump hired yet another lawyer Joseph diGenova, who has previously been all over Fox News claiming the FBI and DOJ are trying to frame Trump. Back in late 2016 and early 2017, he said the same about Comey -- before Trump fired him. diGenova is being hired to spread the word. They're all getting the message out to the American people: it's OK to fire Mueller because the probe is bogus. This is FOR SURE about to happen. And it's apparently going to happen soon. All this nonsense seemed to ramp up right after Mueller's team sent Trump's lawyers a list of questions they would ask him in the interview he said he wanted to do. So once again, the question is WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?? [Image via Ron Sachs/Alex Edelman//CNP/Media Punch.].....»»

Trump Uninvites Golden State Warriors to White House, Team Will Instead Promote Equality in DC

The Golden State Warriors are speaking out after President Trump uninvited the team from a visit to the White House. Championship sports teams are often invited to the White House for a visit with the president, but Stephen Curry said he was not interested in meeting Trump following the Warriors’ win in the NBA Finals. [...] The Golden State Warriors are speaking out after President Trump uninvited the team from a visit to the White House. Championship sports teams are often invited to the White House for a visit with the president, but Stephen Curry said he was not interested in meeting Trump following the Warriors’ win in the NBA Finals. “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump tweeted on Saturday morning (September 23). While the team as a whole had not made a decision as a whole about visiting the White House, a statement was released saying the team will not visit following Trump‘s remarks. “While we intended to meet as a team at the first opportunity we had this morning to collaboratively discuss a potential visit to the White House, we accept that President Trump has made it clear that we are not invited,” the Warriors said in a statement. “We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We’re disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise.” “In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization,” the statement added. LeBron James‘ response to Trump‘s tweet has gone viral.
