Trump Explodes When White House Staff Doesn’t Transfer Putin’s Call to Him



A new book is out called Trump and His Generals: The Cost of Chaos and it’s certainly living up to its name. Specifically, there was an outburst on January 27, 2017 that reportedly occurred in the middle of a meeting between Trump and then-British Prime Minister Theresa May.

During their meeting, May asked Trump whether or not he’d made contact with Vladimir Putin. As Trump was answering with a solid “no,”  former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn corrected him.

“Sir, we’re arranging that call now,” Flynn said. “President Putin called several days ago, but we haven’t been able to get it on your calendar yet.”

To which Trump erupted, “Are you kidding me? Vladimir Putin tried to call me, and you didn’t put him through? What the hell were you thinking?”

And it didn’t stop there.

“Well, sir, you know, you have a lot of calls coming in, and we’re trying to manage who you talk to,” said Flynn.

The book advances to recall that Trump blasted White House staff with temper tantrums months later.

“What kind of bullsh*t is this? How is it possible that Putin calls me and you don’t put the call through? I don’t know what you guys are doing,” he said, adding that Putin is “the only man on earth who can destroy us.”

Watch: Trump Responds to Weinstein Verdict by Saying Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton ‘Loved Him’



President Donald Trump responded to the Harvey Weinstein trial verdict by saying Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton “loved” the disgraced movie producer who was convicted of rape and sexual assault Monday.

Asked if he thought “justice was served in the Harvey Weinstein case?” Trump immediately made the question about himself.

“So I was never a fan of Harvey Weinstein, as you know – in fact he said he was going to work hard to defeat me in the election. How did that work out, by the way, I’m trying to figure that out,” Trump told a reporter.

“He was a person I didn’t like,” the president continued. “I knew him a little bit but not very well.”

“I knew him because he was in New York. Not a person I liked. I will say the people that liked him were the Democrats. Michelle Obama loved him. Loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him. And he gave tremendous money to the Democrats and my question is, will the Democrats be asking for that money back?”

When pressed for an answer to the question by another reporter, Trump said the conviction was “a great thing. It was a great victory and sends a very strong message. Very, very strong message.”

Trump himself has been accused of sexual misconduct, assault, and rape by at least two dozen women.

Trump Tries to Discredit John Bolton in Twitter Tantrum, Gets Destroyed: ‘You Should Fire the Moron Who Hired’ Him



President Donald Trump is now trying to discredit his former National Security Advisor, Ambassador John Bolton, who has information on Trump so damning it could be the end of his presidency.

In a Twitter tantrum Trump attacked Bolton Wednesday morning, curiously not by name – presumably after reports said he had waived executive privilege previously by attacking Bolton.

It did not go well for the president, in large part because despite his war-mongering policies, Bolton is seen as tremendously credible by Republicans and Democrats alike.

But more so because, as so many point out, Trump hired him.

Trump has the worst hiring record of any president in history. He frequently hires incompetent people, dishonest people, and too many of them have ended up arrested, charged, convicted, and jailed.

As many on social media point out, Trump’s claim he only hires “the best people” is a total fraud.

‘Alleged Democrat’ Tulsi Gabbard Slammed for Her Debate Remarks Attacking Democrats as They’re Widely Promoted – by Trump



U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took a hard swipe at the Democratic Party during her remarks at Wednesday night’s presidential debate, and the video of her comments were widely promoted by the Trump re-election campaign. The controversial Congresswoman’s comments drew the ire of many, but the fact that they were used by the Trump campaign to attack Democrats did not help her either.

“My god. Within minutes the Trump campaign is promoting Tulsi,” one person on Twitter wrote. “All you need to know.”

Of course, Gabbard’s words were chopped down by the president’s people at one of his official Twitter accounts. Here’s the video of here saying “our Democratic Party unfortunately is not the party that is of, by, and for the people.”

Gabbard continued, saying: “It is a party that has been and continues to be influenced by the foreign policy establishment in Washington represented by Hillary Clinton and others’ foreign policy, by the military industrial complex and other greedy corporate interests.”

Here’s how some others are responding.
