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........»»

Trump Can"t Stop Losing Manufacturing Council Members After Charlottesville! SAD!

Remember when Donald Trump told his supporters there would be so much winning, they'd get "tired of winning"? How's that going? When it comes to Trump's manufacturing council, not very well.

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. During his press conference, Trump took questions from reporters, and was continuously calling reporters “fake news.” In addition, the President then placed some blame on the alt-left counter protesters. “What about the alt-left that came charging at…the alt-right, do they have any semblance of guilt? They do,” he said.

New Bill Calls For Donald Trump To Get A Mental Health Evaluation Following Charlottesville Comments!

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?.....»»

Donald Trump Uses 280 Characters To Whine About Story Revealing His INSANE Cable News, Diet Coke, & Twitter Habits

Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes [...] Most of the "fake news" Donald Trump has been attacking lately is factual errors in reporting on the Russia scandal and ongoing Mueller investigation. Even if those stories are quickly corrected, any mistakes serve as fuel for Drumpf's war against the press. But don't forget that the President is a very small man, and this fight comes first and foremost from a fear of people not taking him seriously. Video: Watch Trump Creeps On A Woman In Vintage Commercial Footage! After all, the more people actually learn about him, the worse he looks. That's the problem with being an awful, crooked simpleton. So it's no wonder Trump had a meltdown in response to a mind-blowing profile in The New York Times this weekend, which revealed he consistently watches 4-8 hours of TV and drinks "a dozen Diet Cokes" every day. See some of the most shocking excerpts AND Dumb Donald's response (below)! Trump The TV Addict "Before taking office, Mr. Trump told top aides to think of each presidential day as an episode in a television show in which he vanquishes rivals. People close to him estimate that Mr. Trump spends at least four hours a day, and sometimes as much as twice that, in front of a television, sometimes with the volume muted, marinating in the no-holds-barred wars of cable news and eager to fire back." Did Trump's Lawyer Really Write That Obstruction Tweet? "When three former campaign advisers were indicted or pleaded guilty this fall, Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer handling the investigation, urged the president not to respond. If he did, it would only elevate the story. Mr. Trump, however, could not help himself... By Sunday morning, with news shows consumed by Mr. Flynn's case, the president grew angry and fired off a series of tweets excoriating Mrs. Clinton and the F.B.I., tweets that several advisers told him were problematic and needed to stop, according to a person briefed on the discussion." Diet Coke Fiend "The ammunition for his Twitter war is television. No one touches the remote control except Mr. Trump and the technical support staff — at least that's the rule. During meetings, the 60-inch screen mounted in the dining room may be muted, but Mr. Trump keeps an eye on scrolling headlines. What he misses he checks out later on what he calls his "Super TiVo," a state-of-the-art system that records cable news. Watching cable, he shares thoughts with anyone in the room, even the household staff he summons via a button for lunch or for one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day." Trump's Work Day "Mr. Kelly is trying, quietly and respectfully, to reduce the amount of free time the president has for fiery tweets by accelerating the start of his workday. Mr. Priebus also tried, with only modest success, to encourage Mr. Trump to arrive by 9 or 9:30 a.m." Eesh! Democrat or Republican, EVERYONE should be a little freaked out by this information. We're talking about the POTUS here! And he can't get to work by 9:30? He watches sometimes EIGHT HOURS of cable news a day? TWELVE DIET COKES??? How is he even standing?? His off-the-rail speeches are starting to make more sense... Video: Trump Accusers Demand Congressional Probe Into Alleged Sexual Misconduct! So of course Trump had to respond (exactly as one who read the article might expect), on Twitter: Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day - Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News. I never watch Don Lemon, who I once called the "dumbest man on television!" Bad Reporting. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2017 Just real quick, some reasons for not believing this is "bad reporting." 1. We have plenty of circumstantial evidence of his TV habits; his tweets that seem apropos of nothing can usually be traced directly to the subjects being discussed on Fox & Friends or other cable news shows -- including Don Lemon, which the article claims he "hate-watches." 2. The information is not supposition; it's based on the accounts of "60 advisers, associates, friends and members of Congress." 3. The article was written by Maggie Haberman, Glenn Thrush, and Peter Baker, who have better access to Trump and the White House than any other reporters alive. Trump keeps calling it the "failing NY Times", but he gives extensive interviews with these three reporters every few months, including April and July of this year. Then again, maybe he'll say that was faked too. As the article tells us: "Mr. Trump's insistence on defining his own reality — his repeated claims, for example, that he actually won the popular vote — is immutable and has had a "numbing effect" on people who work with him, said Tony Schwartz, his ghostwriter on The Art of the Deal." That sound like "Fake News" to anyone? [Image via Kento Nara/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

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.

In case you haven't been following this story, the POTUS made a point on Tuesday -- after erroneously claiming other presidents didn't call families of soldiers -- of calling the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in an ambush in Niger two weeks ago. He also apparently planned to make a media coup of the moment as Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who is a friend of the family, says reporters were waiting at the airport (when their limousine arrived to greet the coffin) to ask them about the call. Related: Gretchen Carlson Showed Trump's Access Hollywood Tape To Her Kids! But that backfired when he reportedly failed to remember Johnson's name, and even told Myeshia Johnson her husband "knew what he signed up for." The President then angrily tweeted on Wednesday that Wilson -- whose account was backed by grieving mother Cowanda Jones-Johnson btw -- was a liar, and that he had proof. Naturally, a reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders what proof that was exactly? Were there recordings? Sanders said: "No, but there were several people in the room from the administration that were on the call, including the Chief Of Staff, General John Kelly." Her response is typical of what we've come to expect from her position under Trump: general vague support of the president that stops short of ever saying he was being truthful or accurate. Because they can't. Because LIES!

" Translation: No, the military liaisons don't trust him with comforting parents and widows. What about all the families that have come forward saying they haven't been contacted at all? "All of the individuals that the president has been presented with through the proper protocol have been contacted through that process." Translation: It wasn't Trump's fault. It probably happened but was someone else's fault. Maybe the bereaved? So is the President denying he said the soldier "knew what he signed up for"? Is anyone willing to even deny that? "The president's call as accounted by multiple people in the room believed that the president was completely respectful, very sympathetic, and expressed the condolences of himself and the rest of the country, and thanked the family for their service and commended them for having an American hero in their family. And I don't know how you could take it any other way." Translation: Nope, no denial. He said that shit. Frankly, the press gave Sanders every opportunity when they explicitly asked if Trump just thought the words were taken out of context. It would have been so easy for her to say, "Yes. He said those words, but not in the way it sounds." She didn't do that. Instead, she said: "I'm not get into the back and forth. The sentiment of the president very clear. He took the time to make a call to express his condolences, to thank the family for this individual's service. And it, frankly is a disgrace for the media to try to portray an act of kindness like that, and that gesture, and try to make it into something it isn't." What about him not knowing Sgt. Johnson's name, only referring to him during the call as "your guy"? "Just because the president said ‘your guy' I don't think that means he doesn't know his name. As president, the hardest job he has is making calls like that. It is appalling what the congresswoman done, politicizing this issue. This was a president who loves our country very much, who has the greatest level of respect for men and women in uniform, and wanted to call and offer condolences to the family. And to try and create something from that, that the congresswoman is doing is frankly appalling and disgusting." Translation: Trump actually did his job for once, who cares if he did it poorly? How dare you cover Trump's failed publicity stunt and accurately portray him as the horrible, empathy-lacking dolt, unable to even comfort a widow, that he obviously is? We may have overdone it on that one, but the point is the White House can't deny the claims. It obviously happened. So they've reverted to the strategy of saying the media is being cruel for covering it. When you can't say Fake News, just go with Inappropriate News we guess. And the beat goes on.

Donald Trump Attacks Black Pharma CEO Who Resigned Over His Lame Response To White Nationalist Rally

Unsurprisingly, the president's initial non-response -- a vague tweet condemning "hate" instead of denouncing white nationalism -- caused a whole lot of backlash, which POTUS continued to stay silent for. That is, until Big Pharma mogul Ken Frazier publicly resigned from the American Manufacturing Council -- and you better believe that got Trump talking! Related: Too Little, Too Late, Ivanka Trump On Monday, the Merck CEO released a statement announcing his resignation to take "a stand against intolerance and extremism." But before the president got to denouncing the neo-Nazis and the KKK rallying in the name of white supremacy, he jumped at the opportunity to lash out at Frazier, who is black, with a boardroom-style dig, writing: Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President's Manufacturing Council,he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES! — Donald J.

Steve Bannon Is Just The Latest Member Of The Trump Administration To "Resign"

On Friday, the White House announced the resignation of Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's Chief Strategist and key adviser in his election campaign. The former Breitbart News leader was said to be the real brains behind getting Trump in the White House, but later became too influential for POTUS' liking.

The former Breitbart News leader was said to be the real brains behind getting Trump in the White House, but later became too influential for POTUS' liking. Not only was Bannon pushing Trump to follow through on his widely-criticized campaign promises, the media vet was reportedly clashing with top White House advisers -- specifically, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. The real kicker for Trump, though, may have not been Bannon's link to the alt-right amid a white supremacy uprising -- but actually, his recent comments that there was "no military solution" to the North Korean crisis! So, does that mean Bannon got canned because he didn't want to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea? Should we be more concerned now that he's gone?

LAWLZ! Steve Bannon Says Donald Trump Is "The Least Racist Guy I"ve Ever Met" — Watch His New York Times Interview!

Just because Donald Trump needs the support of white supremacists doesn't mean he supports them.

Related: Trump Aide Contacted Leah Remini About Revoking Scientology's Tax Exempt Status Bannon, who stepped down as White House advisor back in August to resume his post running Breitbart News, claimed that white nationalist groups simply cling to Trump just to stay relevant. Speaking to NYT reporter Jeremy Peters, he explained: "It's nonsense. I think these [white nationalist] guys grab on to anything. [Trump] is the least racist guy I've ever met. Nothing in the campaign, nothing that he's done to date. That's all left wing, that's all MSNBC nonsense." In his defense, Bannon may be telling the truth -- Trump could very well be the least racist member of his alt-right circle! POTUS's former chief strategist went on to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists "don't have any meaning or purpose," so they cling to a big movement like MAGA to attract publicity from the left wing media. Related: Bannon Says You Can Call Him 'Racist' When Peters asked if Trump's ties to white nationalists was "a media fabrication," Bannon replied: "100 percent. If they sit around and do whatever they do, nobody covers them because nobody cares, they don't have any meaning or purpose. They're so tiny and irrelevant As soon as they start bringing in the president, yeah, all of a sudden the cameras are there, CNN is there, New York Times is there, it's a front page story… They play the mainstream media to build it up. It's irrelevant nonsense." Wow. He's really putting those losers on blast... now that he's out of the White House. Trump may genuinely not support neo-Nazis and white supremacists as Bannon says, but he's still pandering to those groups to secure his re-election votes. How about you win the rest of us over with positive change and actual leadership, Donny?

A North Dakota father has publicly disowned his son after the 30-year-old took part in the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. On Monday, Pearce Tefft penned a moving letter to his son Peter, warning that he will be ostracized from his family if he refuses to let go of his "hateful opinions." Video: Late Night On Trump's Inability To Condemn White Supremacists In a post on the Forum of Fargo website, Pearce wrote: "My son is not welcome at our family gatherings any longer. I pray my prodigal son will renounce his hateful beliefs and return home. Then and only then will I lay out the feast." Peter calls himself a pro-white activist who went to Charlottesville to protest against the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The "Unite the Right" rally erupted into violence after "pro-white activists" clashed with counter-protesters demonstrating against the event. Peter was seen in news footage at the event and, days later, promoted his cause on CBS Minnesota, whining about how "white people deserve civil rights." Related: Jennifer Lawrence Encourages Unmasking White Supremacists! He also flipped the term "white supremacy" on its head, explaining: "As far as the term white supremacist goes, in my view, anybody that thinks white people don't need advocacy, they are the white supremacists." Uh... wut? Like most, Peter's family does Na-zi the ways of his bizarre logic. His nephew Jacob Scott has described the pro-white activist as a "crazy Nazi," telling the Forum: "He scares us all. We don't feel safe around him, and we don't know how he came to be this way… We reject him wholly — both him as a vile person who has himself made violent threats against our family, and also his hideous ideology, which we abhor." Pearce echoed the family's sentiments, making it clear his son's "twisted worldview" was not learned at home. In response to the multiple threats the family received, Peter's father added: "His hateful opinions are bringing hateful rhetoric to his siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews as well as his parents. Why must we be guilty by association? Again, none of his beliefs were learned at home. We do not, never have, and never will, accept his twisted worldview." Yikes. How did we get here, again?
