This administration continues to do damage to itself. Look at yesterday:
Chief of Staff Mike Mulvaney goes out to clear things up and he creates a mess. He tried clarifying and backtracking later, but he linked the decision to hold up aid to Ukraine to the desire for a probe into the DNC server and 2016 election.
Way to help. Just give the left and MSM more fodder.
In his anger at the W.H. meeting with Pelosi and Schumer this week the President called General Mattis “overrated” as a military person. Really? The man you called “Mad Dog” you are attacking? The man who wrote a book and wouldn’t talk about you?
Mattis spoke last night at the Al Smith Dinner in NY. Here’s what he said:
“I’m not just an overrated general. I am the greatest, the world’s most overrated. I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump, because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals. And frankly, that sounds pretty good to me.”
Then he took this shot at the President (and his deferment):
“I earned my spurs on the battlefield; Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor.”
And this is why the President doesn’t have the loyalty back from people that other Presidents did. They all know he will turn on them in a second and bury them. Leaders simply do not do that.
The W.H. announced that Energy Secretary Rick Perry is going to step down. Why? Well his name has come up all the time in this Ukraine mess and he is under investigation. He has been called to testify.
Of course it happens as the President heads into Perry’s home state to campaign.
Then there was this story out of Italy, where AG Barr has been investigating the tie to the 2016 election and the infamous Joseph Mifsud.
“The Italian government has determined that its intelligence services had no connection to a Maltese professor who told a Trump campaign adviser in 2016 that the Russian government had thousands of stolen emails that could damage Hillary Clinton’s candidacy”. This according to two senior Italian intelligence sources with knowledge of the matter.
“In a series of meetings in Rome over the past two weeks, high-level Italian intelligence officials have repeatedly told cabinet members and a parliamentary oversight committee that the intelligence services did not have a relationship with Joseph Mifsud, a mysterious ex-diplomat who was a professor at a Rome university in 2016”.
The President announced the next G7 Summit would be held at his Doral Club. Now let me explain this. I have been to that club for meetings on many occasions, it is ideal. Yes he said he would do the meeting at cost, no profit. But, you had to know that the left and MSM would be all over it and add it to their charges of his “personal gain” in office. It just fed the beast to attack.
What you won’t hear on the MSM is this.
According to Forbes, “hotel revenues at the Trump National Doral, arguably the Donald’s golf flagship, have dropped like a stone since Trump became president. Revenues at the Trump Doral in 2017 fell an astounding 16 percent. and the resort lost 100,000 booked-room nights”.
The resort has only 643 rooms and revenue has been plummeting at the property since Trump announced for President. A consultant for the Trump Organization told Miami-Dade County tax officials in late 2018 that the resort was “severely underperforming” when compared with comparable hotel properties in South Florida.
When you hear the President is profiting from the office it is wrong. His properties have lost revenue and value. The Trump Organization has stopped building outside the U.S. to avoid issues. The President hasn’t even taken a dime in salary as President. The press won’t tell you this and the left will hammer him for proftiting, which is a shame; but he fed them this opportunity by choosing Doral.
So the administration gave the MSM plenty of material yesterday, and that’s before the continued beatdown on the Syria pullout.
was there Other worthy news?
Yes, but it was drowned out by their shoot first then aim approach.
The President has taken this strong stand on China as we all know. He has continually said that China is being hurt far more than us. The MSM hasn’t exactly backed him up. Well yesterday there was this news:
China’s economic growth slowed even more. China’s economy grew 6% in the third quarter as business activity continued to deteriorate.
Not much coverage of this as the MSM focused on the negative.
Today is Mark Allen’s funeral. He was the soldier gravely wounded in trying to find and “rescue” Bowe Bergdhal. He was so wounded that he was never able to talk and function again. Did you hear anything about it on the MSM or see them cover this?
Do you think if the President this happened under was Trump you would have seen a lot on it? Especially since there was a claim “no one” was killed in the operation and we traded terrorists to get back a traitor?
Have a great weekend.
