Coffee boy just served tea.

George Papadopoulos has decided to stick with his plea agreement with Robert Mueller, his wife told ABC News.


George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign, has decided to stick with his plea agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, his wife told ABC News on Wednesday.

The decision puts to rest weeks of public hand-wringing by his wife, Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos, who has been acting as an informal spokeswoman for her husband. She said in an interview with ABC News earlier this month that her husband was strongly considering backing away from the agreement he struck with Mueller that led him to plead guilty to lying to the FBI.

“George will take responsibility for some inaccuracies during the interview with the FBI,” Mangiante Papadopoulos said in a statement to ABC News on Wednesday, adding that she hopes the judge determining his fate will not send the former Trump campaign adviser to jail.

Fox Replies To DeSantis' 'Monkey' Comment: 'We Do Not Condone This Language'

Smith said, "A little while ago, we had Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee for governor in Florida on for an interview to discuss the Florida election. During the interview, he made what some are calling a inappropriate comment about his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum."

She continued, "DeSantis has since clarified his comment in a statement, saying quote, ‘Ron DeSantis was obviously talking about Florida not making the wrong decision to embrace the socialist policies that Andrew Gillum espouses. To characterize it as anything else is absurd. Florida’s economy has been on the move for the last eight years and the last thing we need is a far-left democrat trying to stop our success.’"

"We do not condone this language and wanted to make our viewers aware that he has since clarified his statement.”

Wall Street Journal: Trump-Mexico trade deal is "worse in many ways" than NAFTA

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board on Tuesday criticized President Trump over the trade deal he announced Monday with Mexico, calling it “notably worse in many ways” than the North American Free Trade Agreement.

The editorial board pointed to the exclusion of Canada from the deal as one of its shortcomings. The U.S. and Canada are still in negotiations.

To break up the current three-country trade agreement, Trump would need approval from Congress, something he is unlikely to get.


Another problem with the deal reached Monday, according to the Journal’s editorial board, is that it strips protections from most U.S. investors in Mexico. The editorial board also criticized the deal for imposing “new red tape and costs” on the auto industry, noting that the deal says that cars sold in North America need to have 75 percent of their content made there to avoid tariffs.

“This is politically managed trade, and its economic logic is the opposite of Mr. Trump’s domestic deregulation agenda,” the Journal wrote.

A final FUCK YOU from McCain to Shitler and Putin.



During McCain’s funeral, which he planned, he appointed Russian dissident Vladimir Kara-Murza to carry his coffin. Kara-Murza will carry his coffin to the front of the Washington National Cathedral during Saturday’s memorial service.


Kara-Murza, 36, has worked with McCain for more than seven years to criticize Putin. Kara-Murza works as the vice chairman of the Open Russia movement and chairman of the Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom.

McCain has referred to Kara-Murza as a man who is, “A personal hero whose courage, selflessness and idealism I find awe-inspiring.”

Together the two pushed an anti-Putin measure through Congress called the Magnitsky Act, which put sanctions on Russia. “On the Magnitsky Act, on public advocacy for Russian political prisoners, and on speaking the truth about Putin’s regime, McCain was indispensable,” Kara-Murza wrote in The Washington Post.

Here's Melania, planting a tree in a $4,000 skirt just like you do

Like all of her outfits, Melania’s gardening ensemble costs more than the average American makes in months. The skirt, an airy Valentino A-line, retailed at nearly $4,000, while the shoes are $700 Louboutins, which sank straight into the soft muck as she patted around with her ceremonial shovel.

Lindsey Graham is crying & I'm not buying it.

Lindsey Graham on John McCain: "He failed a lot, but he never quit. And the reason we're talking about him today and the reason I'm crying is because he was successful in spite of his failures." (via CSPAN)

I listened to Graham’s eulogy on the Senate floor.
The words,touching,unfortunately they’re empty,
maybe Graham acted on them in the past,but no
longer.
His dearest friend was horribly disrespected by
Trump and Graham made excuses,he’s a member
of “Bastardized GOP/Trump Party”.
