As Comey Delivers Senate Testimony What Will Trump Be Doing? Live-Tweeting His Responses.

Trump Meets With Three GOP Senators Today Who Will Be Questioning Comey Thursday

On Thursday former FBI Director Jim Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, and President Donald Trump has every intention of live-tweeting if he feels the need to dispute what the man he fired has to say.

This, according to the Washington Post’s Robert Costa, who often reports what his sources in the White House have to say.

What else will the President be doing while Comey is testifying? Delivering a speech to a far right wing group of religious extremists.

“The Faith and Freedom Coalition’s ‘Road to Majority’ conference announced Tuesday that the president had agreed to address the annual gathering Thursday,” TIME magazine reports. “Faith and Freedom spokesman Lance Lemmonds says the president is expected to speak at 12:30 p.m. EDT.”

The Faith and Freedom Coalition opposes a woman’s right to choose and same-sex marriage. It is headed by the notorious Ralph Reed, who grew his career by working with far right Christian extremists, like Pat Robertson, and right wing conservative politicians and operatives, including Tom Delay, Grover Norquist, and Jack Abramoff.

If that’s not sufficiently disturbing, tonight President Trump will be dining with six Republican Senators, two of whom will be questioning Jim Comey just 36 hours later: Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Tom Cotton (R-AR).

And there’s more.

“Tuesday, Trump is meeting with congressional GOP leadership at the White House, including Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who is also on the committee,” the Washington Examiner adds.

Photos: Trump’s Postmaster General Removing Mailboxes in at Least 5 States Weeks Before Early Voting – Explanation Fails

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s newly-installed Postmaster General is working to reduce capacity across the United States, just weeks before early voting in the 2020 presidential election begins in some states. Americans are furious, after seeing many reports on massive reductions in mail sorting machines, and Trump’s refusal to fund the USPS – along with his admission he is doing so to make it impossible for people to vote by mail.

A local Portland, Oregon news reporter says the USPS admits it’s already removed 27 mailboxes from Eugene, Oregon, with more removals to come there. She says the Post Office claims “they’re only removing them from locations that have multiple mailboxes next to each other.”

Which does not explain this:

Or this:

NBC Montana reports it has “confirmed with the Montana State Association of the National Association of Letter Carriers the orders to remove 13 boxes in Missoula, 9 in Bozeman, 3 in Lewistown and 30 in Billings.”

NPR’s Lulu Miller show that not only are mailboxes being removed, some are just being sealed, rendering them useless:

‘I Haven’t Been Blunt’: Trump Defends Attacks on ‘Nasty’ Kamala Harris, Invokes Racist Slur Against Warren

Published

on

President Donald Trump refused to accept responsibility for calling sitting U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, the presumptive Democratic vice presidential nominee, a “Mad Woman,” “nasty,” “angry,” “radical,” and “condescending.”

Confronted with just a few of his attacks Friday afternoon in a press conference Trump pushed back against the reporter’s charges.

“I haven’t been blunt,” Trump insisted, falsely, as CNN’s fact checker noted:

Trump went on to claim, repeatedly, that Sen. Harris “treated Joe Biden worse than anybody else by far.”

“Nobody treated Biden so badly, as Kamala,” Trump claimed, stressing the pronunciation of her name as if to mock it.

He also attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren, invoking his racist slur for her, “Pocahontas.”

WHAM!

Obama Slams Trump Over USPS Attack in Rare Remarks: ‘More Concerned With Suppressing the Vote’

Published

on

In rare remarks about his successor former President Barack Obama slammed President Donald Trump, accusing him of being “more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.”

President Donald Trump has admitted he is blocking desperately needed funding to help the postal service survive in a direct attempt to stop Americans from voting by mail. The Postmaster General he installed has been removing mail boxes from several cities and removing high-volume mail sorting machines across the country, with a plan to reduce the number of sorters by nearly 700 machines.

Everyone depends on the USPS,” President Obama said via Twitter Friday. “Seniors for their Social Security, veterans for their prescriptions, small businesses trying to keep their doors open. They can’t be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.”

President Obama also accused President Trump of making “attempts to undermine the election.”

And he urged Americans to vote early: “do that now.”
