tweet of the night


wait, so Mike Pence, a man who professes to be so concerned with the sanctity of life that he forces women to hold funerals for miscarriages, went to one of his boss's concentration camps and stared blankly for 72 seconds before hightailing it out of there? I did Nazi that coming

Trump is dismantling our government


This is serious. Trump says he thinks the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is an “unnecessary bureaucratic layer” and that he wants to “get rid of it.” So he’s going to fire Dan Coates. Trump is dismantling our government. Call your reps!😡


President Trump has told confidants he's eager to remove Dan Coats as director of national intelligence, according to five sources who have discussed the matter directly with the president.

The state of play: Trump hasn't told our sources when he plans to make a move, but they say his discussions on the topic have been occurring for months — often unprompted — and the president has mentioned potential replacements since at least February. A source who spoke to Trump about Coats a week ago said the president gave them the impression that the move would happen "sooner rather than later."

The director of national intelligence serves as an overseer of the U.S. intelligence community and a close adviser to the president and National Security Council, producing each day's top-secret Presidential Daily Brief.
A source with direct knowledge told me that Trump has privately said he thinks the Office of the Director of National Intelligence represents an unnecessary bureaucratic layer and that he would like to get rid of it. He has been told that eliminating the ODNI is not politically possible, but still would like to "downsize" the office, the source said.
A government source who has discussed the matter with Trump characterized the president's thinking this way: "It's time for a change. Dan's a great guy but the president doesn't listen to him anymore."
A White House official responded: "We have no personnel announcements at this time."

Here's Trump Screaming in Front of a Plane About How He Has Unlimited Power


Following a week of ignominious policy defeats and not-altogether shocking Cabinet departures, President Donald Trump would like the American public to know that he still thinks he possesses virtually limitless constitutional power.

Speaking about Special Counsel Robert Mueller with reporters outside the White House on Friday, Trump insisted his near-omnipotence derives from “a thing called Article II”—presumably meaning the section of the Constitution on presidential authority (given that this is Trump, though, he might also be talking about the second article he read on InfoWars this morning)

“Nobody ever mentions Article II,” Trump continued. “It gives me all of these rights at a level that nobody has ever seen before.”

In fact, Article II gives him “rights” at exactly the same level as every other president for the past 200+ years. But, that’s really beside the point here. I would bet all the money in my wallet right now ($17 and a coupon to Cold Stone Creamery) that Trump has no idea what’s actually in Article II, which is chock full of very clearly enumerated limits to his power, as well as the basis by which he can be removed from office through impeachment.

Nasa chief fired as Trump administration wants moon landing to occur during his 2nd term

Nasa chief fired as Trump administration vents frustration over moon landing delays

The sudden removal of Nasa’s head of human exploration William Gerstenmaier on Wednesday is a clear sign the White House is increasingly frustrated with the agency’s efforts to return humans to the surface of the moon by 2024.

Donald Trump‘s administration is laser-focused on that date, which would come during a second term of his presidency, should he be re-elected.

But despite the mandate, Nasa has continued to struggle with delays and cost overruns that have threatened the programme.

And the ousting of one of the longest-serving stalwarts in the agency shows how far the White House and Nasa’s politically appointed leadership are willing to go towards disrupting Nasa and attempting to break through the bureaucracy many think has stilted its exploration efforts for years.

In March Mike Pence, the US vice president, fired the first warning shot, announcing a new, expedited timeline for Nasa’s moon landing plans.

Instead of getting humans there by 2028, he said, its new charge would be within five years. He put Nasa leaders on notice, saying if they could not complete the mission, they would be held accountable.

President's Thursday morning Twitter tirade set a new record for his most mistakes per 270 character

Trump rips social media giants in tweetstorm that botches Elizabeth Warren's DNA test result, confuses his campaign launch with Election Day and claims 'fake news' will close without him

President's Thursday morning Twitter tirade set a new record for his most mistakes per 270 characters

Claimed he 'came down the escalator' in Trump Tower to launch his campaign in November 2016, the month he was elected president

Misstated the results of Elizabeth Warren's now-infamous DNA test, saying she was '1,000/24th' American Indian rather than 1/1,024

He linked to an anti-Trump Twitter account instead of MAD Magazine's 'Alfred E. Neuman' mascot in his attempt to mock Pete Buttigieg

And Trump mocked the news media as unimportant, just minutes after boasting that he would hold a press conference in the afternoon


Jeffrey Epstein had 14 phone numbers connected to Trump in his contacts


Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier charged this week with sex trafficking, had 14 phone numbers connected to Donald Trump in his black book of contacts, which included a slew of powerful people from celebrities to politicians to Saudi royals.

The book, first reported on by Gawker in 2005, includes Trump's wife Melania, his longtime personal assistant Norma Foerderer, his houseman, his security officer, the president's brother and his wife, his ex-wife Ivana, and his daughter Ivanka, according to The Washington Post.

The president told reporters on Tuesday that he had a falling out with the hedge fund manager and hasn't spoken to him in years. "And he, like everyone else, sees these charges, the description of these charges against Epstein, as completely unconscionable and obviously criminal," added White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. "Disgusting, really."

Dershowitz: 'I Kept My Underwear On' During Massage At Epstein's Mansion


Yesterday, Axios' Jonathan Swan was just floored when Dershowitz told them he did get a massage at Epstein's residence but it was from a very "old, old Russian woman."

Swan had the same reaction that we all did which is "What the hell is going on?" It's insane.

Now Dershowitz is adding more details to his story and it's not doing him a lick of good. I can never un-watch this or rinse out my brain, and neither can you.

Epstein's butler testified under oath that Dershowitz was present when underage girls were around, according to court filings.

In an interview via Skype, Dershowitz insisted he never saw an underage girl at Epstein's house, but was worked on by an older lady. Huh?

"Were there young women in another part of the house giving massages when I wasn't around? I have no idea of that," he said.

"I kept my underwear on during the massage," Dershowitz went on to stammer. "I don't like massages particularly."
