Sounds like Melania Trump won’t be letting that White House glam room go to waste after all. TMZ is reporting that Melania and Barron Trump will “absolutely [be] moving after the school year.” Not only that, but staffers are already hard at work primping the White House for the First Lady’s arrival with some spiffy new paint and whatnot. There have been a lot of rumors about whether or not Melania and Barron would stay in New York City for an indeterminate amount of time or whether they’d head there after the school year was over. In February, a source told
Whether they do or they don´t, really has nothing to do with anything concerning the American people. She was not elected and other than attending required functions, shouldn´t be required to "be there". I´m sure Ivanka is ready and able to hostess. Through out the countrie´s history, there have been times when other family members hosted for the president. It´s a big nothing burger passing for news.
The First Lady was always moving to the WH just exactly as they told everyone in January. She will be an excellent and involved First Lady, I suspect. I think Ivanka´s new WH post is because after June, she won´t be filling in for her stepmom any longer.
Although Washington is not the best place to raise a child, I would think that the President and Melania would want to be together especially for Barron´s sake. Children are resilient and living in the White House as the President´s child is an experience of a lifetime. I used to think it would be safer for him there but with all the missteps being made by the secret service, I am not all that confident. Who would have thought that this formerly exemplary organization would ever find itself called into question regarding its ability to protect the President and his family. Everything in Washington has been compromised to some extent by the foul stench of partisan politics. The left has relinquished all sense of duty for the dogma of the leftist agenda. It´s all about politics now.
A day after a terror attack in his city left three people dead and as many as 40 wounded, London Mayor Sadiq Khan says he has more important things to do than respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. Wednesday, President Trump´s son tweeted, "You have to be kidding me?!" in response Khan´s assertion in 2016 to The Independent newspaper that terror attacks are "part and parcel" of living in a major city. "I´m not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr.," Khan told CNN´s Christiane Amanpour on Thursday. "I´ve been doing far more important things
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus went to the White House today for their first official meeting with President Donald Trump. The meeting, which comes five weeks after Trump asked a reporter at a press conference to help set up a discussion with the group, was organized primarily to discuss Trump’s new budget proposal, which Chairman Cedric Richmond, D-Louisiana, said at a press conference this afternoon would be “devastating” for the African-American community. Rep. Karen Bass, D-California, said that the group raised “several areas of concern” but added that it was a “positive first start.” According to Bass
American couple Kurt and Melissa Cochran were out for a romantic afternoon stroll across the River Thames on Wednesday to wrap up a dream tour of Europe for their 25th anniversary. At the same time, homegrown terrorist Khalid Masood was behind the wheel of a rented Hyundai barreling toward the span, bent on death and destruction. The couple from Utah never had a chance. The impact sent Kurt, a 54-year-old musician, plunging to his death onto a stone landing below the walkway. Melissa, 46, was left splayed out on the roadway, with a broken leg and rib and blood
The top U.S. general in Europe told lawmakers Thursday that he sees evidence Russia might be supplying the Taliban in an effort to undermine the United States, in what could be a significant turning point in the Afghanistan conflict. "I´ve seen the influence of Russia of late, increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban," Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, the head of the U.S. military´s European Command and the Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, told the Senate Armed Services Committee. Scaparotti did not specify what Moscow may have been supplying to the insurgents. Until now,
When it comes to repealing and replacing Obamacare, defenders of President Barack Obama´s signature domestic law constantly ask, "What about those with pre-existing illnesses?" After all, the most popular feature of Obamacare is that it prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because an applicant has a pre-existing illness. And President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan insist that those with pre-existing conditions will be covered. But by agreeing with Obama on the issue of pre-existing illnesses, by promising to replace Obamacare "with something better," Republicans are making a massive concession: That access to health care insurance should be guaranteed by
It’s been a while since I’ve agreed with the Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol, but he’s spot on here: [snip] Indeed, Speaker Paul Ryan (Wisconsin) could do worse than cancel the floor vote today on the American Health Care Act (a.k.a. RINOcare). In fact, expect the vote to be cancelled if the GOP leadership is far short of the 216 votes needed to pass RINOcare. If the vote goes forward, then they either have the votes or are just a handful away and will try to twist some arms on the House floor. How many votes the GOP leadership has is
The ever-charming Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democrats’ pit-bull Senate minority leader, said today that he will not vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court and that Democrats will filibuster the nomination. This is about as surprising as learning the sun will come up in the East tomorrow. Here’s how Schumer, as predictable as he is charming, phrased it: “After careful deliberation I have concluded that I cannot support Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.” What a knee-slapper. Of course our all-partisan, all-the-time Chuck engaged in no “deliberation” at all
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a
British Lawmaker Lord Digby Jones does not believe the religion of the London attacker is pertinent, The Washington Post reports. Jones comments come in the wake of a tweet by Donald Trump Jr. criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan for once telling citizens that terrorist attacks are “part and parcel” part of living in a big city. Some British lawmakers drew offense from the tweet, saying Trump was attacking the mayor in the midst of a terrorist situation. “You’re safer in London than you’ve ever been,” Jones declared. He continued, “If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism,
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
Washington -- Communications of Donald Trump´s transition officials - possibly including the incoming president himself - may have been scooped up in legal surveillance but then improperly distributed throughout the intelligence community, the chairman of the House intelligence committee said Wednesday. In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes said the intercepted communications do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates´ contacts with Russia or any criminal warrants. Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
