President Trump and Democratic state Sen. Kevin de León agree on one thing: They’re both convinced California Sen. Dianne Feinstein made a mistake when she delayed for weeks the release of a letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape. Trump joined a chorus of Republicans on Tuesday in criticizing Feinstein for the timing of the release of a letter from Christine Blasey Ford, a Palo Alto University psychology professor who said she was assaulted by a “stumbling drunk” Kavanaugh during a party when they were in high school during the early 1980s. It’s a charge the federal appeals court judge has vehemently denied. “It is frankly a terrible thing that this information wasn’t given to us a long time ago, months ago when (Feinstein) got it,” Trump said at the White House. Democrats “could’ve done that instead of waiting until everything was finished and then all of a sudden spring it.” Although his … [Read more...] about Trump and Kevin de León agree Feinstein blew it. Did she have another way?
On Sunday night, the 73rd Tony Awards went down at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. And unlike last year, which saw Robert De Niro make a (random) cameo wherein he cursed out President Trump (“It’s no longer ‘down with Trump,’ it’s F*CK TRUMP!” he yelled, getting bleeped by censors), the night was relatively light on politics. And then Bryan Cranston took the stage. After accepting the award for Best Leading Actor in a Play for his dazzling turn as unraveling newsman Howard Beale in Network, beating out the likes of Jeff Daniels in To Kill a Mockingbird and Adam Driver in Burn This, Cranston began his speech with a groan-worthy joke: “Wow. Finally, a straight, old white man gets a break!” He thanked his cast and crew, as well as the legendary Paddy Chayefsky, who penned the film upon which the play is based, and his lovely wife, Robin. Then he took aim at President Trump—and his regular attacks on the media for holding … [Read more...] about Bryan Cranston Calls Out Trump at the Tonys: ‘Demagoguery Is the Enemy of the People’
close Video Biden nears end of eight-day Iowa bus tour The trip comes as Biden tries to regain lost momentum in the Hawkeye State. I recently received a fundraising email from former Vice President Joe Biden that captured the profound difference in the approach to foreign policy between Democrats and President Trump. Biden wrote: “Did you see the video of our friends and allies in London this week? World leaders were LAUGHING at the President of the United States, after he once again embarrassed himself and tarnished the reputation of the United States at a summit.” The Democrats’ desperate desire to be loved by foreigners runs through the entire email. In effect, Biden is promising to have policies that would lead President Emmanuel Macron of France to like him. JOE BIDEN PREDICTS HE'D BE 'LIKELY TO INHERIT' A RECESSION AS PRESIDENT Macron, of course, recently called NATO “brain dead,” has about one half of President Trump’s … [Read more...] about Newt Gingrich: Trump stands for American strength, Biden stands for American weakness
The good news for Sen. Kamala Harris, now that she has to return to the Senate full time after spending 11 months running for president, is that she will soon have a job that plays to her strength: judging President Trump in his likely impeachment trial. The more troubling news for Harris is that her campaign exposed her vulnerabilities back home. Just 43% of likely California voters surveyed in September thought Harris was doing a good job in the Senate. And even though she often introduced herself as a “proud daughter of California” on the campaign trail, her California siblings didn’t think much of her as a presidential candidate. She was running a distant fifth in a poll taken last month, even in the Bay Area, where voters knew the former San Francisco district attorney best. Home-state voters’ views of Harris are unlikely to improve right away. California officials who cast an eye on the White House in the past had mixed success in readjusting to the … [Read more...] about Kamala Harris’ campaign exposed her California weakness.
