Sarah Huckabee Sanders Says Nancy Pelosi ‘Should Smile More,’ Seriously?!

Of all people to accuse others of not ‘smiling enough,’ Trump’s spokesperson, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is hardly one who should be doing so. In an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” Wednesday morning, Sanders defended the president’s attempt to deliver a bipartisan speech, which some said contained an uncharacteristic sense of optimism that stood at odds with his extremist actions.

So, I am totally conflicted here. My parents were avowed Republicans and I think they would be the first ones in line today to disavow...

The Buck Stops Here: The Government Shutdown Blame Game

A fish rots from the head, and Trump’s head is rotting faster that a frog jumps out of a pot of boiling water. Remember the now famous quote from President Truman, ‘The Buck Stops Here?’ He meant that whatever happens in the federal government, the president is responsible. If the government shuts down, it will be Trump’s responsibility....

Wow! Trump Sucks Up To Democrat Chuck Schumer To Avoid Government Shutdown!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the Trump-Schumer meeting gives her optimism that things could be heading in the right direction. “I’m optimistic that that overture was made hopefully to be constructive,” Pelosi said today. “We’ll see when they out of the room.” She said Schumer is “well aware of the priorities that we share” and expects to get a readout afterward. “We have to know what the president will sign. Hopefully Mr. Schumer will find out.” She quipped that she basically does not envy Schumer’s position right now, smiling as she said, “I’m so glad Schumer is the...
