With a simple response to a tweet from Pulte Capital CEO Bill Pulte, earlier this month, President Trump is credited with inspiring donations totaling $30,000 for a combat vet with a disabling injury. As a result, Pulte told Fox News on Saturday that Trump transformed the face of philanthropy.“I’m not sure many other presidents would have done it, and literally with one tweet — he calls it his typewriter, I call it his magic typewriter — he literally punched a hole in the reality of philanthropy,” Pulte said.Pulte sent a tweet on July 10 to the President that read: “If @realDonaldTrump retweets this,

Trump has a new super power; punching holes in pomposity. I love that he calls his little keyboard his typewriter. Our President does not live in an Ivory Tower! PS; For as well as a free society has treated Bette Midler, what a shame that she hates the United States Constitution. Maybe she'd be happier someplace else.

And don't forget, Trump donates his salary EVERY year to a charity. He doesn't return it to the government so they can waste it on fruit fly sex studies. Instead, he gives it to multiple groups. Last year I got a letter from the Civil War Preservation Trust wherein they thanked the President for his large donation (a quarter of his 2018 salary if I remember correctly) that was used to buy and preserve battlefield land that would have been developed otherwise. Donald J. Trump --- On the road to be a truly great president. Who knew??

So Bette Middler wants Donald Trump to lose his Twitter Account. I want Bette Middler to stop acting like a typical limousine liberal and sanctimonious slob. So I guess we both lose.

Jennifer Kitchen, candidate for Virginia House Of Delegates, has been caught up in quite the covfefe on facebook. She’s openly mocking a Hispanic Trump supporter who was apparently trying to engage her booth at a fair, referring to “skinfolk who would like to speak with” him, while her supporters claim that he was part of the Charlottesville massacre and question if he’s capable of reading and writing and claim that he is a plant for Trump appearances. Kitchen, of course, is a privileged white female.
Fact Check: Elizabeth Warren Crowd

Claim: The presidential campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claims that she drew 12,000 people to a town hall meeting on the campus of Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Monday evening. VERDICT: The crowd size was closer to 4,000, and probably 6,000 at most.Crowd size is often seen — rightly or wrongly — as a proxy for political support. It is not always a good measure: for example, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) drew massive crowds across California in 2016, but lost the state to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by a wide margin. Still, as the Democratic Party presidential primary heats up, the rival campaigns are

On Monday, Jon Favreau, former speechwriter for former President Barack Obama and currently a co-host for Pod Save America, decided to attack Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his criticism of The New York Times. He should have known better; Cruz calmly took him apart as easily as a surgeon doing a simple operation.Last Sunday, Cruz (R-TX) fired off a series of tweets lambasting The New York Times after a leaked transcript of a speech from New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet was published by Slate.

Hillary Clinton woke up Monday and forgot that it’s 2019 and that she’s still on the losing team. The failed Democrat candidate of years-gone-by jumped on Twitter and took a swinging miss at President Trump’s tweet in which he said, “Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!” Clinton replied: “The debunked study you’re referring to was based on 21 undecided voters. For context that’s about half the number of people associated with your campaign who have been indicted.”

I’ve always loved the news. When I was a kid growing up in Detroit, I found the AM dial on the radio and was hooked. In the dentist office, I’d always grab Newsweek over Highlights for Kids. Maybe that had something to do with the fact that I’d already done the hidden images in the drawing on the last page, but I really liked the political cartoons and quote page. That’s part of why what news magazines have become is so disappointing to me.I get that they have to make money. But when Newsweek sold for a dollar a few years ago,

Salt Lake City — U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney said Monday that he believes climate change is happening and human activity is a significant contributor. During a speech at the conservative Sutherland Institute in Salt Lake City, the senator acknowledged that the position is rare among his fellow Republicans, but one that younger people seem to respond to more strongly than older conservatives.(Snip) The former GOP presidential nominee has acknowledged climate change before, and said during his 2018 campaign for U.S. Senate in Utah that “climate realities” will make wildfires more common and destructive in the West. His comments Monday took that stance a step further.

An emotional Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Monday held back tears during a news conference as she and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar condemned Israel’s recent decision to impose restrictions on visiting the country, with the Democrats calling for Congress to get involved. “We in the United States have a constructive role to play,” Omar said at the news conference in St. Paul, Minn. “We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region, and the only democracy in the Middle East. But, denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally.”

Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren apologized for her claim of Native American ancestry during a Monday appearance at a candidate forum in Sioux City, Iowa. (Snip) The scandal reached a fever pitch last year after President Donald Trump dubbed the senator “Pocahontas,” leading her to release a DNA test in the hopes of bolstering her claims. However, the test only showed that Warren is somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1,024th Native American, and led to ire among Native Americans who pointed out that Warren can make no claim to tribal citizenship based on a DNA test.

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has signed a law allowing Illinois to take its own action to slow climate change. The Democrat approved legislation this week that repeals the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998. It limited state action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. withdrew from Kyoto in 2001. But Illinois had put it into state law so it was bound by rules the federal government no longer intended to follow. Naperville Democratic Sen. Laura Ellman says it sends a message that "Illinois is ready to get serious about climate change." The law she and Evanston Democratic Rep. Robyn Gabel sponsored takes effect Jan. 1.

When Bill Clinton successfully unseated sitting President George H.W. Bush in 1992, Clinton’s campaign manager James Carville coined the phrase, “It's the economy, stupid” as a campaign theme. (snip) Rather than listen to the nay-sayers on cable news, use your own eyes. Look at crowd sizes and enthusiasm as a better metric than opinion polls which oversample Democrats, the same polls that predicted a Clinton landslide victory. Despite CNN’s constant contention that “President Trump is on the ropes,” remember that “it’s the crowd, stupid.”
