Queens of the House

Way back in 1965 Jody Miller did a parody of Roger Miller’s song, King of the Road, called Queen of the House.
These days we have at least two “queens” in the House, deranged, maniacal, as clueless about the real world as Alice’s rabbit. I’m speaking, of course, of Gasoline Maxine and Nasty Pelousy. They are shining examples of today’s Democrat icons. Their secret lies in the complete ignorance and moonbattery of their voters. All you can think of when you hear their incoherent babble is how did this happen to our country?

Maxine Waters: 70 Percent Of Women Want To Impeach Trump
WHEN YOUR DISTRICT IS FULL OF CRIMINALS AND PARASITES YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
“Everywhere I go, people are talking about, ‘Why can’t y’all get rid of him? Why can’t you impeach him?’” Waters said. “They say all of these things and I’m not just talking about my district — whether I’m on the airplane, I’m walking down the street in New York, wherever I am — I’m hearing it.”
Waters then claimed that 70 percent of women want the president impeached, but did not cite any evidence to back up her claim.

Nancy Pelosi Knocks Her Own San Francisco District Over Free Speech, Says Don’t Shout Down Speakers

Fearless College Student Calls Out Nancy Pelosi About Her ‘Crumbs’ Comments to Her Face
A fearless college student confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about her previous attacks on Trump’s tax cut, where she referred to the plan as “crumbs.”
Nancy Pelosi slurred her words and marred her face as she tried to answer the student with her liberal double-speak.
You’ve spoken about the effects of the Republican tax plan, specifically referring to its effects on average Americans as ‘crumbs,’ as the son of small business owners, I know that it’s helped my parent hire more employees. It’s helped us pay off our mortgage, helped put me through college.”
“Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as crumbs?” the college student asked.

Pelosi Begrudgingly Admits GOP Tax Plan Has Helped Average Americans

Confident Pelosi: Dems Ready to Push Amnesty, Gun Control ‘When We Win’ in Nov
A confident House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) predicted on Tuesday that Democrats will take back the House and immediately push for amnesty for so-called Dreamers and more gun-control legislation.
“When we win and we take over in January, some of the issues that will come up soon are some of the issues that we are asking the Speaker to do right now,” she said at a Georgetown University event.
Pelosi then said Democrats are set to push “gun-violence legislation and background-checks legislation” in addition to “legislation on the Dreamers.”

Maxine Waters Hopes ‘Cohen Tapes’ Give Democrats ‘Treasure Trove Of Information’
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters hopes an FBI raid on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, provides Democrats with a “treasure trove” of information with which to impeach Trump, she said in a new interview.
“I am certainly working toward his impeachment,” Waters told Variety Magazine in an interview published Wednesday. “I think Mueller is doing a great job. I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said.

Maxine Waters to Trump: ‘Please Resign’ so I Don’t Have to Impeach You
The interviewer asked Waters if she had any advice for the president, and the California Democrat did not mince words.
“Please resign,” said Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, after being honored at the Time 100 Gala in New York. “So that I won’t have to keep up this fight of your having impeached because I don’t think you deserve to be there. Just get out.”

Democratic Party files lawsuit alleging Russia, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks conspired to disrupt the 2016 campaign
40% OF DEMOCRAT VOTERS ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS CRAP
The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.
The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there.

New York Attorney General Wants Power To Bypass Trump Pardons
New York’s attorney general on Wednesday asked Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislators to give him and other local prosecutors power to bring criminal charges against people pardoned by U.S. President Donald Trump.
In a letter, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged Cuomo and legislative leaders to close a loophole in New York’s double jeopardy law shielding recipients of presidential pardons from state prosecution.

Trump lawyer warns POTUS: Michael Cohen will roll over
No one thinks Cohen would turn on Trump in lieu of serving a light sentence of a few years, but if the sentence is stiff, all bets are off. Which raises another question: What could Michael Cohen have possibly done that might warrant decades potentially in a federal pen?
That’s what they’ll threaten him with: life imprisonment,” said Alan Dershowitz, the liberal lawyer and frequent Trump defender who met with the president and his staff over two days at the White House last week. “They’re going to threaten him with a long prison term and try to turn him into a canary that sings.”…

Sen. Mitch McConnell Kills President Trump’s Plan to Cut $60 Billion in Spending
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, KY) has torpedoed President Donald Trump’s plan to cut $60 billion in federal spending, despite a promise to open a “discussion” on the cuts.
Even after supporting and passing a $1.3 trillion increase in spending, McConnell said he would talk about a rescissions package that had the support of the president. However, McConnell has ultimately refused to support the plan, Conservative Review noted.

‘Designated Survivor’ Becomes Third Show This Week to Discuss Removal of President

It’s strange how many times this particular amendment has been invoked on television recently when I doubt many could reference its number eighteen months ago. Now, just since January, we’ve seen it discussed on Madam Secretary, Homeland, and Designated Survivor. One show, The Good Fight, even goes so far as to jump to talking about actual impeachment. I’m starting to feel like they want to tell us something.

Republicans Are Fleeing And So Are Their Hopes For Keeping The House
Forty-six House Republicans are either resigning, retiring or seeking other office in 2018. Roughly 22 House members retire each election cycle, so to say the party is going through a seismic shift is not a misnomer.
If the slew of defections weren’t enough, Republicans are trailing their Democratic challengers in 43 races, Politico reported. Some 14 GOP incumbents have less cash on hand than their Democratic counterparts, according to Open Secrets.

Information Overload

With so much happening it’s difficult to determine where to start. OK, let’s just dive in the deep end.
In Filthydelphia, Starbucks has a rule about loitering. Two black men came in, used the bathroom, then refused to buy anything or leave. They said they were waiting for someone. Police were called… CHA CHING!!
Manager gets fired, CEO of Starbucks grovels, apologizes sincerely, and promises to retrain staff to recognize their unconscious racism. As always, you CANNOT appease the socialists. They won’t accept anything but blood. It didn’t take long for the race hustlers and opportunists to swing into action. Expect lawsuits with huge payouts. Guaranteed. It’s called “gettin’ paid.”

“The police did not just happen upon this event, they did not just walk into Starbucks to get a coffee,” he said in a Facebook video. “They were called there, for a service, and that service had to do with quelling a disturbance, a disturbance that had to do with trespassing.”
Ross said the officers “followed policy” and did what they were supposed to do. He said that his department makes sure that officers receive “implicit bias training.”
“I will say, that as an African-American male, I am very aware of implicit bias,” Ross said. “We are committed to fair and unbiased policing and anything less than that will not be tolerated in this department.”

At a hearing last week, allegations arose that Gardner suborned purjury and deliberately withheld exculpatory evidence in the bogus prosecution of Governor Eric Greitens. All of this comes after continuing allegations that Circuit Attorney Gardner has abused her position.She has allegedly used her office as a mini-inquisition: a punitive, partisan, and personal war against Governor Greitens. Rather than use St. Louis City Police to investigate the case and inform her decision to charge Greitens, she hired an out of state, disgraced former FBI agent (whose career ended amid allegations of perjury).

For What It’s Worth

It is as frustrating as it is nauseating to watch what’s been happening to the president. That pig Robert Mueller not only tore the concept of ethics to shreds but is walking close to, if not over, the bounds of legality.

His team of Gestapo agents raided the office and home of long time Trump personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to allegedly look for evidence of a payoff to a porn actress. This is way, way outside the scope of his supposed investigation which is Russian collusion. There is none, of course, but he will never stop until he brings down this president.

This is a blatant attempt by this scum to goad Trump into firing him. The democrats are waiting for an excuse to charge him with obstruction so they can start the impeachment party after they get the majority back.

Feds raid Michael Cohen’s office, seize material related to payments to Stormy Daniels, other matters; Update: Mueller consulted Rosenstein; Update: Bank fraud and campaign finance violations?

The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York…

The payments to Ms. Clifford are only one of many topics being investigated, according to a person briefed on the search. The F.B.I. also seized emails, tax documents and business records, the person said.

The seized records include communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen, which would likely require a special team of agents to review because conversations between lawyers and clients are protected from scrutiny in most instances.

He’s now involved in two criminal investigations, one Mueller’s, the other the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s. That’s extra pressure to cooperate with Mueller, as he could conceivably be indicted by the DOJ in two different jurisdictions if he doesn’t. This is Russiagate’s boldest squeeze play yet

Mueller Investigating Trump Over $150K Donation From Ukrainian Who Gave Clintons $13 Million

THAT’S DIFFERENT. HILLARY HAD TO BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS.

The donation, from steel magnate Victor Pinchuk, pales in comparison to contributions he gave to the charity Bill and Hillary Clinton set up. The billionaire has contributed $13 million to the Clinton Foundation since 2006 and had access to Hillary Clinton while she served as secretary of state.

Trump Blasts AWOL Jeff Sessions: “He Made a Terrible Mistake, He Should Have Let Us Know He Was Going to Recuse Himself”

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME TRUMP HAS CALLED OUT THAT COWARDLY LITTLE PRICK. HAD HE NOT RECUSED HIMSELF FROM ANY INVESTIGATION AS SOON AS HE WAS CONFIRMED, THAT TRUMP-HATING BASTARD ROSENSTEIN COULD NOT HAVE SET MUELLER LOOSE TO GET TRUMP. PERIOD. NO MATTER HOW, JUST DO IT.

Ahead of a briefing from Senior Military Leadership Monday night, President Trump blasted the FBI’s raid of his personal lawyer’s office, calling it a disgraceful situation and an attack on the U.S., according to White House pool reports.

Trump also criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, adding that no one in looking at the other side of the probe, an apparent reference to Hillary Clinton.

FBI Raid: Mueller outsources the legal torment of Michael Cohenbut that doesn’t mean it’s not part of Mueller’s Russian collusion inquisition

Mueller is legally twisting Manafort’s arm so hard to flip him against Trump it may fall off, but will have to outsource the torment of Cohen to others. As so much that has preceded it in the Russia collusion inquisition, this has the appearances of friends of James Comey and Andrew McCabe taking out whatever their agenda is on friends of Trump.

We are witnessing, as Scott [Johnson] says, “a political death struggle with the authorities operating under [President Trump’s] nominal control.” President Trump and his loyal appointees need to assert the powers that the voters have given them.”

We’ll learn more in coming weeks, but this brings to a head a seemingly intractable conflict: Donald Trump was duly elected president and there are a lot of people on Mueller’s team and in DOJ/FBI who still don’t accept that and want it over. Only one of them can win.

Schumer: It’s time to vote on legislation protecting Mueller

ROBESPIERRE MUST BE PROTECTED UNTIL THE EXECUTIONS CONCLUDE.

Schumer called for new protections of Mueller hours after the FBI raided the Manhattan office of Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, enraging the president.

The Democratic leader warned that Mueller’s investigation must be allowed to proceed unimpeded to avoid a constitutional crisis.

Carl Bernstein: FBI raid was about ‘scaring the hell out of the president’

ALL THE OTHER JACKALS ARE ENVIOUS OF THE PRESIDENTIAL SCALP THIS DICKWAD WAVES AROUND. THEY WANT ONE, TOO.

Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein said on Tuesday that President Trump “knows he’s trapped,” reacting to how the commander in chief is lashing out after the FBI raided the office, home, and hotel room of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Furthermore, Bernstein said the raid was about “scaring the hell out of the president,” because Trump “knows better than anyone what he and his lawyer have discussed, communicated about it.”

In light of the CNN report about Rosenstein, Bernstein said Trump is a “lawless president” determined to avoid accountability by trying to shut down special counsel investigation.

“We have a president of the United States willing to risk a constitutional crisis for this nation so he can avoid legitimate investigation and letting the facts roll out the way they ought to,” Bernstein said.

Rod Rosenstein signed off on FBI raid of Michael Cohen’s office: Report

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein personally approved the FBI’s decision to raid Michael Cohen’s office in New York, according to a report.

Sources told the New York Times that Rosenstein’s involvement in the decision to raid the office of Cohen, President Trump’s longtime attorney, led the president to vent about whether he should fire the No. 2 official at the Justice Department.

Facebook assisting Mueller probe into Trump 2016 campaign

Facebook is working with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Trump campaign interactions with Russian operatives during the 2016 election, company founder Mark Zuckerberg told Congress on Tuesday.

Mr. Zuckerberg first said his company had gotten a subpoena from Mr. Mueller, then paused and said he wasn’t sure if there was a subpoena but his company is sharing information the investigation.

He declined to go into more details.

“Our work with the special counsel is confidential,” he said, testifying to the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees.

CtH: Ironic he should claim confidentiality while Mueller’s thugs were busy raiding Trump’s LAWYER.

Obama Holdover Accused of Corruption Approved Trump Lawyer Raid

When the media first began to spin the raid on the president’s lawyer, they claimed that it had been approved by a Trump appointee. Of course it hadn’t. It came from Rosenstein on one end. And Trump’s appointee had recused himself. That left his deputy, an Obama holdover, Robert Khuzami. And there are reports that he allegedly made the decision.

Khuzami was in charge of SEC enforcement under Obama. He did speak at the RNC convention in ’04 in support of the Patriot Act and donated to McCain in ’08. But as we’ve seen with Mueller, that kind of thing is old news. The much more significant factor is his SEC gig.

Michael Cohen has lunch with Donny Deutsch hours after the Morning Joe contributor said that Trump’s lawyer could be on the ‘right side of history’ and help ‘bring down the presidency’

The pair were photographed leaving Barneys together on Wednesday afternoon. The pair dined at Freds, the popular restaurant on the ninth floor.

Deutsch appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show earlier in the day. He told host Joe Scarborough ‘good guy’ Cohen has a lot weighing on him.

“I think Michael has a chance to be on the right side of history’ and bring down presidency,” Donny said.

Late posting today. DW’s check came, had overdue bills to pay, had to get snow tires taken off and highway tires put back on. One was bad and the other one is wearing, so I had to buy another tire.

April Ryan Asks Sarah Sanders If Trump Has ‘Thought About Stepping Down’

“With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked, as the press asked repeatedly about President Trump’s anger at the FBI raiding his personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office.

“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders replied, calling on another reporter.

Ryan shouted over Sanders that “it’s not a ridiculous question,” before Sanders was able to move on.

Fired up donors help Democrats hit early fundraising records

Anti-Trump donors are opening their checkbooks wide this year, helping Democratic candidates set early fundraising records as they hope to send a message in November’s elections.

Democrats running in Senate races across the country have been eager to share their latest fundraising totals with the political universe as they seek to generate a sense of momentum ahead of the midterm elections.

“You realize something when you take this job,” Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning. “It’s a big job with a lot riding on you … but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. … You realize you hold the office for just a small part of our history.

“Eight years takes its time on you. … There’s got to be an exit strategy at some point,” Ross said in an interview, noting he planned on serving 10 years, or five terms.

He dismissed the suggestion that his retirement had anything to do with a possible Democratic wave, though the open seat will now become a target, while setting off a scramble among Republican hopefuls.

Push to Politicize Impeachment May Backfire for Democrats in Midterms
THIS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF REPUBLICAN VOTERS REALIZE WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST. DEMOCRATS WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY THE PRESIDENT.

The push by a number of prominent Democrats to completely politicize the impeachment process could backfire for them in the midterms, David Axelrod, the political adviser who helped elect Barack Obama to the Presidency in 2008, said on Sunday.

Far left billionaire Tom Steyer, who has dedicated $30 million to electing a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives for the express purpose of impeaching President Trump, thinks virtually any action taken by the President is an impeachable offense.

Much Ado

I was going to do an opinion piece, but after almost two weeks of fighting snowstorms every day as I delivered newspapers I’m worn out. Maybe another time.

PAUL RYAN Promises Democrats to Pass Amnesty – Will Get to It Next
NEVER MIND CALLS TO PRIMARY HIM. THE DEMOCRATS IN HIS HOMETOWN LOVE HIM. HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
Speaker Paul Ryan promised Democrats on Thursday he will pass amnesty for illegal aliens. They just need to wait a week or two.

Formerly bankrupt California city tests ‘universal’ income for residents
The proposed project is being funded by a private grant
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
The plan, spearheaded by Stockton’s 27-year-old mayor, Michael Tubbs, will likely begin sometime in August 2018 and involve at least 100 people of varying income levels getting $500 a month for three years.
Ever since it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Stockton has been in recovery-mode, and Tubbs sees basic income — a growing topic of discussion around the world over the past couple years — as one way to rehabilitate the city.
In a basic income system, participants get a fixed amount of money that they can use however they want.

Ignoring Human Rights Abuses, Mainstream Media Gush Over North Korea’s ‘Charm’
In a bizarre display of willful blindness, U.S. liberal media have lavished praise on North Korea’s dictatorship during the first days of the Winter Olympics, gushing over its “charm offensive” and comparing it favorably to the Trump administration.
In an article Sunday titled “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” the New York Times was unable to contain its admiration for the totalitarian state, saying that North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, stole the show at the Winter Olympics by sending his sister, Kim Yo-jong.

Trump wants a military parade and liberals are hysterical (just more proof it’s the right thing to do)
President Trump wants a parade celebrating our military and troops. It’s a great idea, and is a perfect event symbolizing the fact that America is getting back on her feet after eight years of a commander-in-chief who reveled in complaining about America and decimating our military.The hysteria the proposed parade has provoked among Democrats and leftists provides even more proof that it’s the right thing to do.

Liberal Hack to Secretary Mattis: Why Divert Energy, Time, Financial Resources for a Military Parade?
Donald Trump with wife Melania and sons Eric and Donald, Jr. Trump holds the Phelps Award as 2008 Honoree of the Year by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza.
Donald Trump was credited with saving the 50th Anniversary of the NY Veterans Day Parade
UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
Last week the Trump White House announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?

I-TEAM: Inmates claim Corrine Brown getting special treatment
Current, former workers at Coleman facility say that’s not true
Security officials inside the minimum-security prison camp that is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida — where the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman reported to Jan. 29 — said she’s treated like everyone else.
But according to inmates, Brown has been getting everything from massages to being able to wear wigs.
“New mattress, kissing up all day and all night by both staff and residents … and she got to keep a bunch of wigs,” one inmate wrote.
The letter goes on to say, “She had to have a brand new mattress. She has girls that are in prison at her beck and call. She says they are on her payroll. Where we got one chicken pattie for lunch she gets 2. The officers allows her to have massages every night.”
That inmate also claims that Brown is allowed to wear “brand new high-top leather sneakers” that aren’t even sold in the prison commissary.

Justice Ginsburg Indicts Half The Country, Blames ‘Macho Atmosphere’ And ‘Sexism’ For Trump’s Win
WHY IS THIS DECREPIT HAG RULING ON CASES INVOLVING THE PRESIDENT/?
“I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized,” Ginsburg said Sunday.

Jeanne Ives Targets Illinois ‘Sanctuary State’ Law in Republican Primary
RAUNER TRIED TO BRING A BIT OF FISCAL SANITY TO THIS LIBERAL SEWER. HE WAS STEAMROLLED BY THE DEMOCRAT-DOMINANT LEGISLATURE LED BY HOUSE SPEAKER MICHAEL MADIGAN AND THE NEWS MEDIA. HIS VETO WAS EASILY OVERRIDDEN AND HE JUST GAVE UP. NOTHING ANY REPUBLICAN DOES WOULD MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.
Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has launched a biting new ad against incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner that brings the “sanctuary state” issue to the fore in the Republican primary.
In 2017, Rauner signed a law that essentially made Illinois a sanctuary state. Conservatives warned that it marked the “beginning of the end” of his administration.

Columnist: “It’s Time To Accept They’re No Longer Journalists. They’re Activists”
The Washington Post, New York Times, and USA Today still refuse to employ a single columnist that won’t begin each piece with anything less than “Mr. Trump, you are a liar!”
CNN this year had to retract one story and significantly modify a second one (both were related to Trump and Russia) after it turned out the former wasn’t supported by any facts (otherwise often referred to as “fiction”) and the latter was inaccurate to the point of libel.

California Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills
The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises.
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have led to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the death of mothers. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the pre-born infant pass into a toilet.

California Will Block Oil And Coal Shipments, Risks Constitutional Battle
“Given how unpopular oil development in coastal waters is in California, it is certain that the state would not approve new pipelines or allow use of existing pipelines to transport oil from new leases onshore,” coastal commissioners Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, State Controller Betty Yee, and state Department of Finance Director Michael Cohen wrote in a letter Wednesday to the BOEM.
California officials can therefore control pipelines, transportation of materials, terminals, and refineries built in coastal areas. The federal government could pull out the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to create a regulatory framework that would override California law.

Dems left Dreamers out to dry, say activists
Immigration activists are furious that 73 House Democrats, including seven members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, voted for a bipartisan spending bill that doesn’t include a DACA fix.
“Last night immigrant young people and people of conscience fighting for justice were betrayed by both parties,” said Greisa Martínez Rosas, a DACA recipient and advocacy director for United We Dream, an immigrant youth activism network.

NBC Political Analyst: ‘Trump Has Become The Commander in Chief of American Rape Culture’
Last week White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down after his former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. And White House speechwriter David Sorensen also resigned after a former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. Both men denied the charges.
Of course, this story led liberal media headlines all week.
These are the same people who defended Bill Clinton – who actually was accused of rape and was forced to pay thousands to at least one woman he sexually abused.
