Jim Acosta Virtue Signals to Trump About Female Reporters. Trump Has Perfect Response.

Published

on

Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta.

As Ben Shapiro often says, find you someone who loves you like Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta.

Jim Acosta loves Jim Acosta so much, he took the opportunity to ask President Trump during a press conference at the UN if Trump would give his next question to a female reporter, instead of, you know, simply giving a female reporter an opportunity to ask the next question instead of Jim Acosta.

Jim Acosta was likely incredibly please with Jim Acosta for thinking of saying this.

Trump, on the other hand, whether consciously or not, totally called his bluff and had the perfect response: “Sure, whatever.”

The Daily Caller reports:

Acosta received a question from the president at a press conference at the United Nations in New York City on Wednesday. Before asking his question, Acosta demanded that the next question go to one of his female colleagues in the press corps.

“If you don’t mind, after I’m finished if … one of our female colleagues could go after me that would be great,” Acosta said.

Trump appeared confused and asked, “What does he mean by that?”

“What does that mean?” he repeated. “What does it mean, no, what does it mean?”

Acosta explained, “It would be great if a female reporter asked you a question about this issue,” referring to the sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Trump replied with a shrug and a bit of an eye roll. “Wouldn’t make any difference to me.”

I don’t get CNN and Jim “We Are Real News, Sir” Acosta. They’re always whining about how Trump calls them “fake news”, and yet they use their opportunity to ask the President a question to shamelessly show their partisan colors.

Is Acosta a reporter, a commentator, or the Politically Correct police?

Trump’s response was, of course, perfect because, it truly makes no difference whether a female reporter asks him a question or not. That’s what equality is. The press pool is obviously full of female reporters, and when it comes to the hot news topic du jour, Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accusations, a woman is no more capable of extracting the truth than the president.

That’s how truth works.

Prosecutors Could Strip POTUS’ Pardon Power for Paul Manafort

The legal maneuver is likely to peeve the President.

Published

on

Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort was undoubtedly a close friend and ally to Donald Trump for some time, but his current position as a Robert Mueller-led pawn is likely grating to the Commander in Chief.

Manafort stands accused of several crimes – some loosely tied to the 2016 election, some not at all.  Given his close relationship with President Trump, the possibility of Manafort being pardoned when, (or if), his court dates cease has long been the subject of tenacious pontification.

For his part, President Trump has refused to rule out such a maneuver, but has not indicated his inclination either.

Now, prosecutors from the State of New York are looking to neuter the President’s options in Manafort’s case, by adjudicating it outside of the Presidential Pardon’s jurisdiction.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is preparing state criminal charges against Paul J. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, in an effort to ensure he will still face prison time even if the president pardons him for his federal crimes, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.

Mr. Manafort is scheduled to be sentenced next month for convictions in two federal cases brought by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III. He faces up to 25 years in prison for tax and bank fraud and additional time for conspiracy counts in a related case. It could effectively be a life sentence for Mr. Manafort, who turns 70 in April.

The move was likely designed to curtal the President’s pardon powers specifically.

The president has broad power to issue pardons for federal crimes, but no such authority in state cases. And while there has been no clear indication that Mr. Trump intends to pardon Mr. Manafort, the president has spoken repeatedly of his pardon power and defended his former campaign chairman on a number of occasions, calling him a “brave man.”

Manafort’s troubles come just days before the Department of Justice expects to receive the final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Kamala Harris’ Ex-Flame Makes WILD Prediction About 2020 Chances

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild. 

Published

Kamala Harris

As with any election that involves an incumbent President, the other side of the aisle is straining to put as many candidates out in the ether as possible.

This crowding of the democratic race for 2020 will certainly provide the nation with a very intimate look into the differences among the progressive avenues of the left-wing, and will undoubtedly escalate their internal infighting to epic proportions.

There is a very real chance that this could bring the democratic party itself to its knees, as the socialist wing attempts to convert some of the more moderate wings, and with the possibility that the entire organization could be driven hard to the left.

And let’s not forget that the 2016 race created an unfathomable opportunity for the DNC to discover just how to rig their own primaries.  Now that this precedent has been set, trust in the democrats is at an all time low.

So, does Kamala Harris stand a chance?  Her ex-lover doesn’t seem to think so.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

“Beyond the left” sounds like the surefire end of the democrats as we know it, but there will only be one way to know for sure.

Buckle up, folks.  Things are about to get pretty wild.
