Michael Moore Slams Dems: 'No Message, No Plan, No Leaders'

Filmmaker and liberal activist Michael Moore slammed Democratic Party leaders on Wednesday. Just one day after the party lost congressional elections in Georgia and South Carolina, Moore fired off a blistering series of tweets warning that Democrats were in danger of getting routed in next year’s midterm elections.  He wrote:  If u think the party who's won the vote in 6 o last 7 Prez votes but holds ZERO power &is now 0-4 in 2017 votes is going to win next year...— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) June 21, 2017 ...get a friggin' clue. The DNC&DCCC has NO idea how 2 win cause they have no message, no plan, no leaders, won't fight &hate the resistance— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) June 21, 2017 I say this to my 7.5 million ppl on social media & the millions who watch my movies & read my books: Are we going 2 sit by &let this happen?— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) June 21, 2017 Not everyone was as negative about the party’s chances next year.  One analyst said the Democrats have been losing special elections, but they were all for seats in solid red districts, and in each case, the Democratic candidate came much closer than would be expected.  David Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report also noted that the numbers so far showed an enthusiasm gap “big enough to gravely imperil the Republican majority next November.”   (h/t The Hill) -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Ivanka Trump Says 'Viciousness' Toward President 'Blindsided' Her

In a discussion that touched on the president’s infrastructure and economic initiatives, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked her if it was hard to focus on issues important to her when there were “distractions” ― like the investigations of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia and Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election. The first daughter said she was surprised by the harsh criticism Trump is facing. “It is hard. And there is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I was not expecting the intensity of this experience,” she said. “But this isn’t supposed to be easy,” she continued. “My father and this administration intends to be transformative. And we want to do big, bold things. And we’re looking to change the status quo. So, I didn’t expect it to be easy. I think some of the distractions and some of the ferocity was — I was a little blindsided by on a personal level.”  Trump also said she was “trying to keep my head down, not listen to the noise and just work really hard to make a positive impact in the lives of many people.”  "There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting...but this isn't supposed to be easy." -@IvankaTrump pic.twitter.com/viiMQ2ij1d— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) June 12, 2017 Trump’s “viciousness” comment left many Twitter users incredulous, given her father’s actions on the campaign trail and as president.

Ivanka Trump did say on Monday that her father felt “very vindicated” after former FBI Director James Comey’s hearing last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee. However, Comey suggested during his testimony that Trump had privately requested that he drop an FBI investigation and later lied and defamed him.  “My father felt very vindicated in all the statements that he’s been making and feels incredibly optimistic,” she said. “[We’re] incredibly focused on the reason we all went to Washington and what we’re fighting for.” .@IvankaTrump: With all the noise and intensity surrounding the Comey hearing, we're focused on why the American people elected Donald Trump pic.twitter.com/G0Ils9I31j— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) June 12, 2017 She also discussed the administration's first international trip and said she was particularly taken with their visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. “Every day in this experience has been surreal, but that was truly an unbelievable moment,” she said.  Trump, who converted to Judaism prior to marrying Trump senior aide Jared Kushner, incorrectly called Judaism one of the three largest world religions during the interview.  She also proceeded to wave off rumors about her husband -- who is reportedly being investigated as part of the Russia probe -- by saying that she and the rest of Team Trump are “really focused on why the American people elected Donald Trump president.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Pound hits seven-month low as UK political uncertainty hits markets - as it happened

Moody’s says UK election result will heightens uncertainty over Brexit negotiations and increases fiscal risksPound falls amid political crisisMoody’s: Election result heightens uncertainty and is ‘credit negative’S&P: Uncertainty will hurt growthIntroduction: Business optimism has plunged since the electionPolitics Live: Theresa May faces critical meeting with Tory party 4.42pm BST Time for a quick recapSterling has lost ground today as fresh signs of UK political instability rattled investors. The pound has hit a seven-month low against the euro and is close to an eight-week low against the US dollar.Our second edition @EveningStandard has more on Cabinet splits + on the Queen's Speech delay before it was confirmed - quite extraordinary. pic.twitter.com/qKdcEHRR2d“It is hard to overstate what a dramatic impact the current political uncertainty is having on business leaders, and the consequences could – if not addressed immediately – be disastrous for the UK economy.The needs of business and discussion of the economy were largely absent from the campaign, but this crash in confidence shows how urgently that must change in the new government.Election result heightens uncertainty over Brexit negotiations and increases fiscal risks, a credit negative”.Attention is concentrated on the ongoing rout in US tech stocks. Having been such a one-way bet so far this year, this sudden turn to the downside will have caught out more than a few over-eager latecomers.However, those rushing to proclaim the demise of one of the big rallies of not only the past year but the past eight years too need to be careful – there will be plenty of dip buyers out there who have been waiting for a pullback of this kind of size. 4.16pm BST Dr Mike Ellington of the University of Liverpool has written an interesting article on how sterling will suffer from the political crisis in Westminster.He’s analysed UK economic uncertainty (measured by recording how many articles on economic and political unrest appear in the media each day), and tracked it against the value of the pound.It is clear that the negative relationship between policy uncertainty and the euro to sterling exchange rate is intensifying. This implies that increases in economic policy uncertainty are met with depreciations in the sterling to euro exchange rate running up to June 9, 2017.This, coupled with May’s lack of support in the general election, should put her leadership into question, particularly when it comes to entering divorce talks with the EU.The very fact that the domestic political landscape of the UK is shrouded by yet another layer of uncertainty suggests that economic policy, the exchange rate, and indeed the wider economy, is in for a rough ride.

Megyn Kelly, NBC Under Fire Over 'Sickening' Alex Jones Interview

Kelly previewed her interview with Jones on Sunday.  The full episode airs June 18 on her new show. Kelly was criticized on social media for what some saw as an attempt to normalize Jones and his outlandish and untrue claims. She defended herself by saying President Donald Trump had praised Jones and appeared on his show. She also noted that Jones’ InfoWars was given credibility when the site received White House press credentials.  “Many don’t know him; our job is 2 shine a light,” she wrote.  But that didn’t slow the outrage. Some viewers even called for a boycott of the network over the upcoming interview. Here’s a sampling: My nephew survived Sandy Hook. I am not tolerating this.

Twitter Applies Comey's 'Open Setting' Excuse To Everyday Life

And although his refusal to answer these questions is presumably because they touched on classified information, Comey said the phrase so often, it became drinking-game worthy.

Trump’s New Thoughts On His Travel Ban Are Making His Lawyers’ Lives Miserable

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); WASHINGTON ― Government lawyers trying to defend President Donald Trump’s travel ban in court might be excused if they decide they are stuck with the world’s worst client. With the case now before the U.S. Supreme Court, Trump early Monday let loose a string of statements on Twitter, criticizing opponents of his executive order banning travel from six majority-Muslim nations, his own Department of Justice, and the judiciary generally for being “political.” Federal appeals courts have struck down the ban, ruling that statements from Trump and other administration officials showed that the order unconstitutionally targeted Muslims. Trump’s latest tirade adds to that body of remarks. “To the extent that the government has taken a position ... and that position is at odds with what the president has said, it presents a challenge that the Department of Justice will have to deal with,” said Alberto Gonzales, who served as President George W. Bush’s attorney general a decade ago. George Washington University law professor Orin Kerr, a former Justice Department prosecutor who was appeared before the Supreme Court, said the tweets make it harder for Trump’s lawyers now to argue ― as other White House officials have tried ― that the “travel ban” wasn’t really a “travel ban.” “A big question in the case is what the president intends,” Kerr said. “It’s directly undercutting what his lawyers are trying to say.” Lawyers working to keep the travel ban off the books seemed to agree. The ACLU posted a tweet Monday afternoon: “Yes, we may incorporate @realDonaldTrump’s tweets about the ban into our Supreme Court argument.” Trump started sharing his thoughts on the matter at 6:25 a.m. “People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” Trump wrote in the first of four tweets over 20 minutes. “The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C. The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version! In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!” Perhaps the most surprising critic of Trump’s statements was George Conway, husband of top White House aide Kellyanne Conway and who, until last week, was considering a top-level job with the Department of Justice civil division. “These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won’t help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad,” Conway wrote, referring to acronyms for the Office of Solicitor General and the Supreme Court of the United States. A while later, as buzz spread from his original tweet – including the obvious copying of the Trumpism “Sad” – Conway posted four more threaded tweets: “Just to be clear, and in response to inquiries, I still VERY, VERY STRONGLY support POTUS, his Admin, policies, the executive order and of course, my wonderful wife. Which is why I said what I said this morning. Every sensible lawyer in WHCO [White House Counsel’s Office] and every political appointee at DOJ wd agree with me (as some have already told me). The pt cannot be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters seriously undermine Admin agenda and POTUS―and those who support him, as I do, need to reinforce that pt and not be shy about it.” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders argued during the daily press briefing that Trump’s word choice really did not matter. “The president isn’t concerned with what you call it. He’s concerned with national security and protecting people in this country,” Sanders said. “He isn’t concerned with being politically correct. He’s concerned with protecting the American people.” The Justice Department last week requested that the Supreme Court take up the case. The justices have not yet announced whether they will do so. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Kellyanne Conway's husband mocks Trump's tweets on travel ban

George Conway, the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway who was under consideration for multiple positions in President Donald Trump’s administration, mocked the president on Monday for targeting his own Justice Department.In a series of tweets, Trump rebuffed his top aides and other administration officials, who had insisted that the administration’s executive order suspending visa issuance from six majority-Muslim countries was not a travel ban.“People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” Trump tweeted Monday morning.“The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.” the president added. “The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!”Conway derided Trump’s tweets, criticizing the president in a post that concluded with his trademark “Sad.”“These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won't help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad,” Conway wrote, referring to the Office of the Solicitor General, which argues before the Supreme Court on behalf of the Trump administration.Conway, a partner at the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, was a candidate for the solicitor general post and the front-runner to head DOJ’s Civil Division until he withdrew his name from consideration last week.Asked if the tweet from the unverified account was his — Monday was the first time the account had tweeted since 2015 — Conway told POLITICO: “Yes. My tweet.”In a statement announcing his withdrawal last week, Conway had said the time wasn’t right for him to leave the private sector but maintained that he continues to support the Trump administration.In subsequent tweets Monday, Conway made clear: “I still VERY, VERY STRONGLY support POTUS, his Admin, policies, the executive order and of course, my wonderful wife.” That’s why, he continued, “I said what I said this morning. Every sensible lawyer in WHCO and every political appointee at DOJ wd agree with me (as some have already told me). The pt cannot be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters seriously undermine Admin agenda and POTUS--and those who support him, as I do, need to reinforce that pt and not be shy about it.”Kellyanne Conway earlier Monday had blasted the media for what she called their “obsession with covering everything [Trump] says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president.”

Kellyanne Conway's Husband Says Trump's 'Sad' Travel Ban Tweets 'Won't Help'

WASHINGTON ― George Conway, a conservative lawyer who last week dropped out of the running for a key position in the Justice Department, said Monday that President Donald Trump’s tweets about his administration’s travel ban could hurt the case in court. Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, was until last week reportedly the front-runner to become assistant attorney general of the Justice Department’s civil division, a prominent role that involves defending and representing the Trump administration in court. Conway was never formally nominated and said last week he had “reluctantly concluded” that “this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government.” A tweet from Conway on Monday suggested one of the factors that may have contributed to his decision to drop out. Conway referenced a tweet from Trump on Monday morning in which the president said the Justice Department “should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted” to the Supreme Court. “These tweets may make some [people] feel better, but they certainly won’t help [the Office of the Solicitor General] get 5 votes in [the Supreme Court], which is what actually matters,” Conway tweeted. “Sad.” These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won't help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad. https://t.co/zVhcyfm8Hr— George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 5, 2017 Trump himself signed the very “watered down” executive order he referred to in his tweet on Monday. Trump’s tweets and anti-Muslim rhetoric have repeatedly been cited by federal judges who ruled against the administration’s executive order, which would halt immigration from several Muslim-majority countries.  In other tweets, Trump referred to the executive order as a “TRAVEL BAN” and said the Justice Department “should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court ― & seek much tougher version!” The tweets were evidently inspired by the terror attack in London over the weekend. In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017 Earlier on Monday, Kellyanne Conway said the media had an “obsession” with covering Trump’s tweets. George Conway, on the other hand, acknowledged the effect that Trump’s tweets could have.  The Justice Department last week filed emergency applications to the Supreme Court asking the nation’s highest court to reinstate the travel ban. George Conway’s Twitter account had been dormant since December 2015. Neither Conway nor a spokesman for his law firm immediately responded to HuffPost’s request to confirm that the Twitter account belonged to Conway, but the account’s first follower was his wife, and George Conway confirmed the legitimacy of the Twitter account in an email to a Washington Post reporter. George Conway later tweeted a link to a Washington Post story on how Trump’s tweets could hurt the administration’s efforts to restore the travel ban. Conway said he still “VERY VERY STRONGLY” supports the administration, and that every sensible lawyer in the White House and Trump political appointees at DOJ would agree with him: 1) Just to be clear, and in response to inquiries, I still VERY, VERY STRONGLY support POTUS, his Admin, policies, the executive order ...— George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 5, 2017 2) ... and of course, my wonderful wife. Which is why I said what I said this morning. Every sensible lawyer in WHCO and every political ...— George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 5, 2017 3) ... appointee at DOJ wd agree with me (as some have already told me). The pt cannot be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters ...— George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 5, 2017 4) ... seriously undermine Admin agenda and POTUS--and those who support him, as I do, need to reinforce that pt and not be shy about it.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) June 5, 2017 Then, responding to a reporter who tweeted about Conway’s “first tweetstorm,” Conway replied “And last.” This article has been updated with additional posts from George Conway’s Twitter account. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Ben Carson Says Poverty Is A 'State Of Mind,' Folks On Twitter Give Him A Piece Of Theirs

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); People on Twitter took Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson to task after he said that poverty was a “state of mind.” The neurosurgeon, who previously caught heat for suggesting that slaves who were brought to America were “immigrants,” made the controversial comment during a SiriusXM Radio interview with Armstrong Williams released Wednesday. Listen to the clip here: ”I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind,” said Carson. “You take somebody that has the right mindset, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee you in a little while they’ll be right back up there.” Carson’s comments sparked anger among Twitter users, including “Star Trek” actor George Takei. Here’s a sampling: Ben Carson says that poverty is a "state of mind." You know what else is a state of mind? Always being a blithering idiot.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) May 24, 2017 Dear @SecretaryCarson, States of mind:✔️ Happy✔️ Sad✔️ New York NOT a state of mind:❌ Systemic poverty https://t.co/HAuQrNzvTL— Nita Lowey (@NitaLowey) May 24, 2017 @WajahatAli @whattheshihtzu Im gonna use my "state of mind" to do all my farm work for me. Why have I not thought of this before. Gonna dream up lobster too.— Teemedome (@teemedome) May 25, 2017 Huh. We say poverty is the condition of having little or no money, goods, or means of support.https://t.co/HBXsKo83sQ https://t.co/IRdMSW93eC— Dictionary.com (@Dictionarycom) May 24, 2017 So is hunger apparently. Let's Jedi Mind trick ourselves into eating a steak. https://t.co/t20slNjhIF— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) May 24, 2017 If poverty is "a state of mind" then so is wealth. So how about Ben Carson trade places with someone impoverished and show us how it's done.— Nut Job (@MacSmiff) May 24, 2017 Let's have him swap with a family living below the poverty line for - meeehhh - 3 months & see what he says then. https://t.co/P7AKwz0tJj— Nemesis Resis☨ (@LaPajamas) May 24, 2017 I just imagined a few million into my bank account, thanks Ben Carson https://t.co/uYqFjQwWXR— thomas a moore (@Thomas_A_Moore) May 24, 2017 Ben Carson said poverty is a state of mind. Next month, I'm going to tell my landlord that I paid my rent with positive thinking!— Zerlina Maxwell (@ZerlinaMaxwell) May 24, 2017 Ben Carson says you can think your way out of poverty, time to start thinking hard. pic.twitter.com/eM0Hc6oHRs— Ryan (@ryanztweetz) May 24, 2017 @washingtonpost Ben Carson is an idiot! Let him live in poverty for a year & then get a comment from him! Are poor people suppose to mediate out of poverty?— Doc CB (@cbeidson) May 24, 2017 Ben Carson says that poverty is a "state of mind."Tell that to my low-income students whose parents struggle w/the basic necessities.— Talia (@2020fight) May 25, 2017 Ben Carson said poverty is a state of mind. The 45 million people living below the poverty line should just smile themselves to wealth.— Michael, still here (@Home_Halfway) May 24, 2017 Ben Carson says poverty is a state of mind, so next month try paying your rent with The Force— Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) May 25, 2017 Ben Carson thinking that poverty is a mindset is a pretentious dismissal of the struggle that millions of working parents go through.— Simar (@sahluwal) May 24, 2017 If poverty is a "state of mind" Ben Carson, why don't we put you in our lower class's shoes and you can just "think" your way out of it?— Christian Tall (@ChristianLTall) May 25, 2017 On a serious note, poverty is physically&very mentally exhausting. Ppl like Ben Carson don't have a clue on how hard it is to live w/no hope— Tina-TheResistance (@trcfwtt) May 25, 2017 Ben Carson called poverty a state of mind. No, sir stupidity is a state of mind.
