CNN anchor warns Trump’s defenders: “He’s playing you.”

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is calling on President Donald Trump’s supporters to demand higher standards from their leader. 

So far, however, they’ve refused to do so. Cuomo wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that their support has “a religious quality” that leads them to defend the president almost as a matter of faith: 

Christopher C. Cuomo ✔@ChrisCuomo

The lying is unprecedented. That’s clear. What is also clear is that trump support has a religious quality to it: their belief in him is not about fact but faith in some set of expectations it seems. So it doesn’t matter what he says or who lies abt it.

Last night on Fox @KatrinaPierson denied that she said "he said it" on a conference call about the alleged "n-word tape."

Now, she's acknowledging that there was a call. The audio seems clear: she said "he said it. He's embarrassed by it."

Credibility problems on all fronts.

Earlier in the day, Trump called former White House aide and “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog” after she published a book critical of him and said the president had used a racial slur. 

Cuomo said the president seems to get away with insults and language that most people ― even his supporters ― wouldn’t accept: 

“If my 12-year-old, Mario, called someone a ‘dog,’ he would not say it again in my presence. I guarantee you he would apologize. In fact, if he said most of the things that the president says about people he’s threatened by or doesn’t like, his cheeks would be glowing.” Read more:

Fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok is Already Raking in Major Cash For His Corruption

Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok was finally fired Monday morning after a Department of Justice Inspector General report revealed wide spread bias during his time working on the Clinton email investigation and Robert Mueller's Special Counsel. 

“Mr. Strzok was subject to the standard FBI review and disciplinary process after conduct highlighted in the IG report was referred to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). OPR reviewed the investigative materials, as well as the written and oral responses of Mr. Strzok and his counsel, and issued OPR's decision," the FBI released in a statement. "The Deputy Director, as the senior career FBI official, has the delegated authority to review and modify any disciplinary findings and/or penalty as deemed necessary in the best interest of the FBI.”

Right on cue, Strzok pulled out his victim card and created a GoFundMe account. 

That account has raked in more than $250,000 in less than 24-hours. 

Strzok isn't the first fired bureaucrat to capitalize on their much deserved termination. When Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired earlier this year, he too started a fund and raked in more than $500,000 dollars. McCabe was fired for being serial liar during his time at the Bureau, which included making false statements under oath to federal investigators. 

"The OIG found that then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe lacked candor, including under oath on multiple occasions in connection with describing his role in connection with a disclosure to the WSJ, and that this conduct violated FBI Offense Codes 2.5 and 2.6. The OIG also concluded that McCabe’s disclosure of the existence of an ongoing investigation in the manner described in this report violated the FBI’s and the Department’s media policy and constituted misconduct," a DOJ inspector general report states.

Amazing how bureaucrats, even the rare ones who end up getting fired, always seem to fall up.

Trump Signs Act Named After John McCain Without Mentioning McCain Once

The president couldn’t say one nice thing about the senator before signing the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act.

President Donald Trump couldn’t manage to say a single nice thing about Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at an event on Monday where he signed a defense bill named for the former prisoner of war. 

Trump went to Fort Drum in New York to sign the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act but did not mention the senator at all in his speech. The president has frequently insulted McCain, a Vietnam veteran and prisoner of war, even as the senator battles an aggressive form of brain cancer. 

The president did, however, boast about creating a new military branch, the Space Force. 

“It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space,” Trump told troops at Fort Drum. “We must have American dominance in space.”

"It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space," Pres. Trump brings up Space Force to troops at Fort Drum, New York. 

3:24 PM - Aug 13, 2018

McCain became one of Trump’s favorite targets on the presidential campaign trail in 2015 when Trump told supporters he “liked people who weren’t captured.” Trump continually attacked McCain’s status as a war hero, despite having dodged the Vietnam draft multiple times himself for “bone spurs.”

Trump has been critical of McCain since long b

Stephen Miller’s Uncle Blasts Him As ‘Immigration Hypocrite’

The senior policy adviser was reminded about his family’s roots in a scathing op-ed written by his uncle.

Stephen Miller, senior policy adviser to President Donald Trump, was called out on his immigration “hypocrisy” by his uncle in a scathing op-ed published Monday on Politico.

David S. Glosser, a retired neuropsychologist, accused both his nephew and Trump of becoming “numb to the resultant human tragedy and blind to the hypocrisy of their policy decisions.”

“I have watched with dismay and increasing horror as my nephew, who is an educated man and well aware of his heritage, has become the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family’s life in this country,” Glosser wrote in his piece.

Miller is credited with crafting some of the Trump administration’s most controversial immigration policies, including family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border and the travel ban, which targets immigrants from five mostly Muslim countries.

Trump and my nephew both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human.David S. Glosser, uncle of Stephen Miller

Glosser pointed out that Miller’s family has benefited from American immigration policies the Trump administration is seeking to corrode. Miller’s relatives gained citizenship though family-based immigration, which the Trump administration pejoratively refers to as “chain migration,” according to Glosser. The policy also likely helped first lady Melania Trump’s parents become U.S. citizens last week.

“President Trump wants to make us believe that these desperate migrants are an existential threat to the United States; the most powerful nation in world history and a nation made strong by immigrants,” Glosser wrote.

He continued: “Trump and my nephew both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human.”
