Trump administration full of ‘crybabies’: Senator Kaine
[PRESSTV] US President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
's attacks on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau show that his administration is full of "crybabies," Democratic Senator Tim Kaine says.

"The Trump administration is filled with people with glass jaws who they love to punch people, but if somebody punches back? They just can’t believe it. They’re crybabies," Kaine told The Washington Post on Tuesday.

"President Trump can name-call everybody all day long. And somebody gets in his face a little bit and they melt into a pool of lukewarm water," said Kaine, who was the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nominee in the 2016 election.

He added that "the scuffle over the weekend shows how weak the administration is."

On Saturday, Trump left the Group of Seven (G7) industrial nations’ summit in Canada early in anticipation of the meeting with North Korean leader Kim Pudge Jong-un
...the overweight, pouty-looking hereditary potentate of North Korea. Pudge appears to believe in his own divinity, but has yet to produce any loaves and fishes, so his subjects remain malnourished...
in Singapore.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said after the G7 summit that it was "kind of insulting" that the United States implemented steel and aluminum tariffs against his country on the basis of national security. Trudeau also promised to slap retaliatory tariffs against Washington and said that Canada "will not be pushed around."

Ivanka, Kushner made over $82m outside White House roles: Report
[PRESSTV] US President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
’s daughter, Ivanka, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have reportedly earned at least 82 million dollars from outside income while serving as senior White House advisers.

The revelation was made by the Washington Post on Tuesday, raising concern about possible conflicts of interest.

The American daily, citing financial disclosure forms, reported that Ivanka had made 3.9 million dollars from her stake in the Trump International Hotel and more than two million dollars from her personal clothing brand during 2017.

The US president’s daughter also received a $289,000 advance for her book, Women Who Work, published last year. She said she would donate the profits from the book to charity.

Ivanka’s husband brought in over five million dollars in income last year from Quail Ridge, a New Jersey apartment complex that was purchased by his family’s business, Kushner Companies.

The Post reported that Jared’s 2017 assets were worth between $179m and $735m, while Ivanka’s were worth between about $55.3m and $75.6m.

The couple’s vast business investments have repeatedly drawn scrutiny for potential ethics violations and conflicts of interest, with watchdog groups in the United States accusing the Trump family of using the presidency and its stature for personal profit.

Peter Mirijanian, a front man for the couple's ethics counsel, however, claimed that Ivanka and Kushner had abided by government ethics rules.

"Since joining the administration, Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump have complied with the rules and restrictions as set out by the Office of Government Ethics," Mirijanian said in a statement.

Trump has faced a furious backlash from political opponents and ethics experts for placing his children in positions of power.

#1  A large share of the $82 million, I'm sure, has been pumped back into charity.

#3  Wonder when 0bama started discussions about his book advance...

Oh and who really funded that straight to pulp retro-bribe

#4  82 Million is probably less than they made in the years prior. This is just slander propaganda to divert attention...

I wonder how much she'll make when she's President.

#6  3.9 + 2 + 0.289 + 5 = 82?

Must be that common core math they keep talking about...

Claire McCaskill told supporters she was hitting the road for a campaign RV... but had her private plane take the same route
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Sen. Claire McCaskill
    ...Now, why would I pay taxes on my airplane? Send the bill to the taxpayers!...
    said her campaign was 'hitting the road' in an RV

  • 'Big Blue' as the RV was called was heavily featured on social media as part of a three-day campaign trip across Missouri

  • But records show her private plane used the same campaign route

  • McCaskill denied report: 'I added some stops with the use of the plane, but I was on the RV so much that the broken door drove me crazy'

  • McCaskill has gotten in trouble for use of her private plane before and has taken steps to try and hide its radar tracking information

Thought that was kind of, you know, illegal.

#3  and has taken steps to try and hide its radar tracking information

Might be trying to smuggle cocaine or cigarettes, too.

Perhaps a DEA/ICE airborne 'interdiction' is in order.

If only we had the technology to fix a broken door. Perhaps if there was some sort of auto-parts industry...

#6  Hope she paid her carbon tax on that private plane flight. Couldn't she have driven a Prius instead?

#7  I dunno. Flying worked out so well for Mel Carnahan. Does McCaskill have a wife for the governor to appoint if her plane has problems before the election?
