Trump: Devin Nunes Should Get ‘The Medal of Honor’ for Coordination With White House to Halt Russia Probe

Published

on

President Donald Trump says Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) should get the Medal of Honor for what was a behind the scenes coordination with the White House attempt to essentially upend the Russia investigation.

“If this turns out as everyone thinks it will, Devin Nunes should get the Medal of Honor,” President Trump said Thursday morning in a telephone call in to Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” (video below.)

The President, as Commander-in-Chief, bestows the Medal of Honor, to members of the U.S. Military for valor. It is the highest award given to service members. It is not given to civilians.

“He is really – what he’s gone through, and his bravery, he should get a very important medal. Maybe we’ll call it the Medal of Freedom ’cause we actually give them.”

The President also praised Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who’s being accused of ignoring sexual molestation of college wrestlers when he was an assistant coach.

The segment below begins with Trump again repeating his totally false conspiracy theory that now-fired, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe received $750,000 from Hillary Clinton, while the FBI was investigating her. Trump claims that the money came from a Super PAC run by Terry McAuliffe, “who’s absolutely Hillary Clinton’s best friend,” and was for McCabe’s wife’s political campaign.

“Nobody even knows if she spent the money – she might not have spent the money,” Trump says, apparently implying that it might have wound up in Jill McCabe’s personal finances.

Watch: Trump Ludicrously Claims ‘Herd Mentality’ Will End COVID-19 Pandemic ‘Without the Vaccine’

Published

on

President Donald Trump says the coronavirus pandemic is “going away,” and would even disappear without a COVID-19 vaccine, thanks to a “herd mentality.”

That’s entirely false.

“We are going to be okay, we’re going to be okay and it is going away,” Trump said about the coronavirus pandemic that’s taken 200,000 American lives, “and it’s probably going to go away now a lot faster because of the vaccine.”

“It would go away without the vaccine, George, but it’s going to go away a lot faster with go away without the vaccine,” Trump continued, speaking at an ABC News town hall hosted by George Stephanopoulos.

An incredulous Stephanopoulos asked, “it’s going to go away without the vaccine?”

“Sure, over a period of time,” Trump said. “Sure with time it goes away. And you’ll develop, you’ll develop, like a herd-mentality it’s going to be it’s going to be herd-developed and that’s going to happen, that will all happen, but with the vaccine, I think it will go away very quickly But I really believe we’re rounding the corner, and I believe that strongly.”

Trump likely meant herd immunity, which he incorrectly described. Experts say herd immunity will not resolve the coronavirus and we will be dealing with it “forever.”

Trump Cries Twitter Is ‘Negative’ Against Republicans – ‘Especially’ Him – After Top Trend Highlights All His Failures

Published

on

President Donald Trump is accusing the Twitter and its executive of being biased against Republicans, especially him, despite no evidence and the fact that for years he has been allowed to violate the social media platform’s terms of service with impunity.

“It’s never a real Twitter Trending,” Trump said, on Twitter, referring to the top issues people are tweeting about. “It’s Twitter Executive’s Choice. Only negative on Republican voices, especially mine!”

Trump’s accusation comes just as “AND GOT CAUGHT” was trending on Twitter, highlighting Trump’s failures. It was in response to Trump’s own tweet, a lie, that he posted Wednesday night as former President Barack Obama was speaking at the Democratic Convention.
