Trump quoted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia, underscoring that the grim state of the world applies “in particular” to the Middle East.

The move followed Wolf’s routine in April, when she stirred outrage on the right by making fun of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was in the audience at the time. On Tuesday,…

Perhaps in our next presidential election, we can institute a mandatory IQ test. Or elect a separate president for those citizens whose IQ’s don’t quite exceed the bottom limits of the median range. Many people think that President Donald Trump is dumber than a post. There are plenty of examples to prove that point — an opinion that’s been echoed by plenty of people with daily interactions with Donald Trump, including several former and current members of his cabinet and the White House staff — the president reinforced the basis for that low estimation of his intellect with his latest…

President Donald Trump lashed out at Chief Justice John Roberts Wednesday after the Supreme Court leader rebuked the president for suggesting a U.S. judge was biased. “Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country,” Trump said over Twitter.

Very dangerous and unwise!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1065346909362143232 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1065351478347530241 Trump dismissed a ruling against his administration on Tuesday because it came from an “Obama judge.”…

Anthony Scaramucci has dragged Ivanka Trump’s private email use for government business. He called it “hypocritical,” given her family’s hysterical reaction to the Hillary Clinton email controversy. “It’s hypocritical and certainly it looks bad,” Marc Short, Trump’s former legislative director, said on CNN’s “New Day.” Short, who departed the White House in July, was one of the Trump administration’s longest-serving aides. He regularly appeared on TV to defend the White House and advocate for the president. “I’m sure that the media will have a field day with it today,” Short said Tuesday of the emerging scandal. “I think there are…

In an op-ed for the New York Times published on Monday, Michael Bloomberg — who is reportedly eyeing the Oval Office — announced that he had donated $1.8 billion to Johns Hopkins University. The donation, which is the largest-ever contribution made to any educational institution, will exclusively be used to provide financial aid to undergraduate students at Bloomberg’s alma mater, according to a press release from the university. “America is at its best when we reward people based on the quality of their work, not the size of their pocketbook,” Bloomberg, a billionaire himself, wrote in the op-ed. “Denying students…
