No White House Selfie
Anyway, I thought 41 was a pretty classy president. Ever since then, not so much.
At a press conference today Donald Trump said that he thinks Russia probably did hack the DNC. He added that lots of countries hack. And he claimed the DNC was careless with its servers. Not to mention Hillary Clinton and John Podesta, windows logon: p@ssw0rd.
Fake News Hack
Yesterday Buzz Feed and CNN ran with an unverified story of a Trump honey trap in Moscow. The story claims Putin blackmailed Trump into reporting on Russian Oligarchs with whom he had dealings. Trump and Mike Pence both condemned the story as fake news at the press conference.
Update: A former British spy named Christopher Steele prepared ane opposition research dossier on Trump. It contained unverified material about Russian romps with prostitutes and sweetheart business deals that would make Trump vulnerable to blackmail. The NYT called the dossier Washington’s “worst kept secret”. It was circulated among the NSA, CIA, FBI, and various news organizations. It went unreported because it wasn’t verifiable. That is until BuzzFeed published it. CNN did not publish the contents of the report. It published a story that that the contents of the Dossier had been attached to a confidential report prepared for Donald Trump by the CIA. BuzzFeed, however, did publish the contents of the dossier.
Washington Post blogger Ezra Klein, a supporter of ObamaCare, called the launch a big failure.
And Forbes says, “ObamaCare’s website is crashing because it doesn’t want you to know how costly its plans are.”
ObamaCare Failure to Launch
Even Robert Gibbs wants people fired
When President Obama met with party leaders in 2009 Eric Cantor pitched some ideas for the stimulus bill. The president responded, “Elections have consequences and, at the end of the day, I won.” The 800 billion dollar stimulus went on to pass with three Republican votes. And ObamaCare rammed its way through Congress without any Republican support. At the time Democrats controlled the White House, Senate, and House.
The program has never been popular with voters. A new Rasmussen survey finds that only 12% of voters want to keep it as it is. However 56% want the law improved piece by piece. Only 30% want to see the program immediately brought to room temperature.
