On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Trump’s involvement in the last week before the election “really made the difference” in the victories by Rick Scott (R) and Ron DeSantis (R) in Florida’s races for Senate and governor. Conway said, “[T]he president made a big difference. I think that Governor Scott and Congressman DeSantis ran excellent campaigns, but this president getting in there, several times in those last six, seven days really made the difference, and also, him encouraging them not to bail on their clear victories.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

These ceremonies, which normally occur once or twice per year, provide Americans with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of various people who have made an important contribution to U.S. culture. President Donald Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Nov. 16 to recipients including Babe Ruth, Elvis Presley, Antonin Scalia, Orrin Hatch, Roger Staubach, Alan Page and Miriam Adelson. It is the nation’s highest civilian honor. These ceremonies, which normally occur once or twice per year, provide Americans with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of various people who have made an important contribution to U.S. culture. Because the president selects recipients with total discretion – American or otherwise, living or dead –- this award also says a lot about the president himself. What achievements or contributions does the president consider important? What groups of people most easily win his favor? And how does he hope to shape his legacy, jud...

[ADULT LANGUAGE WARNING] Friday on Yahoo News’ podcast, “Skullduggery,” George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, said the Trump administration was a “shit show in a dumpster fire.” While discussing his decision to withdraw his name from consideration for a job in the Trump administration, Conway said, “I’m filling out the financial forms, and it’s like—I forget what time of year it was, it was like late April—man, I’m thinking, I’m watching this thing and, it’s like the administration is like a shit show in a dumpster fire. And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to do that.'” He continued, “And then you got the Comey firing, and then you got him going on TV saying, ‘I had Russia on my mind,’ and it’s like, ‘Oh, no.’ And then it’s like I’m driving home one day from New York and it’s like ‘Robert Mueller appointed special counsel,’ and then I realized, this guy is goi...

What would make him doubt the vice president? Despite publicly asking Vice President Mike Pence last week to be his running mate in 2020, President Donald Trump is secretly harboring doubts about the man first in line to the Oval Office, according to a new report from the New York Times.Citing nearly a dozen White House aides and Trump allies, reporters Maggie Haberman and Katie Rogers find that Trump has been repeatedly asking many of his advisers about Pence's loyalty. The question has come up so much, they say, that some of his advisers have become "alarmed.'The marriage of Trump and Pence's public images was always one of convenience — for both sides. Pence was initially critical of Trump's bid for the presidency, though he was careful to hedge his bets. Reports suggest that, after picking Pence to be his running mate in 2016, Trump had regrets about not picking Chris Christie.But Pence turned out to have significant upsides. His credentials with the evangelical community h...

The attempt to silence Jim Acosta was decisively blocked. CNN thoroughly and fittingly embarrassed the White House Friday when a federal judge ruled that it must return reporter Jim Acosta's press pass after it was summarily taken away last week following a combative press conference with President Donald Trump.Acosta had pressed Trump about his lies about Central American immigrants, prompting the president to become angry and to try to move on to another reporter. When Acosta refused to pass the microphone on, a White House intern tried to grab it out of his hands. The White House later revoked Acosta's press pass, and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders claimed he had "placed his hands" on the young woman, sharing distorted video in an attempt to bolster this claim. (Even this altered footage showed that the brief contact between the two occurred because of the intern's grab, not Acosta.)After U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly ruled Friday that the White House must return Acosta's...

The “debate” over the Jim Acosta video shows the right has no use for facts. Is there any way to talk to them? Last week, Donald Trump's administration pulled off another of the routine stunts it uses to hijack the media narrative, whip up the right-wing base, and distract both journalists and pundits from more important news stories. On Wednesday, Trump used a press conference to create a reality TV-style beef with CNN reporter Jim Acosta. First he got testy with Acosta for asking pointed questions, and then he directed a White House intern to try to confiscate Acosta's microphone. Acosta's efforts to hold onto the microphone resulted in incidentally touching the female intern's arm.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders immediately pretended to believe that a brief brush-off was the equivalent of deliberate gendered violence, using a doctored video created by a conspiracy theory website to back up her obvious bad-faith claims. This lie became the pretense for...

Speculation is mounting that Hillary Clinton could launch a bid for the US presidency in 2020 after two former advisers in as many months floated the idea of a remarkable political comeback.  Mark Penn, who worked with the Clintons for 13 years, co-wrote a piece in the Wall Street Journal on Sunday headlined ‘Hillary will run again’ which predicted a new campaign.  He said Mrs Clinton would reinvent her public image once again, this time as a lifelong liberal, claiming she had learned the lessons of her painful 2016 defeat to Donald Trump.  “Expect Hillary 4.0 to come out swinging", wrote Mr Penn and Andrew Stein, a former Democrat politician, adding that she may leave it late to join the race.   “They [Democrats] will see her now as strong, partisan, Left-leaning and all-Democrat - the one with the guts, experience and steely-eyed determination to defeat Mr Trump."

Well, the definition of the word "altered" now seems to be up for debate — at least if you work for the Trump administration. After last week's testy exchange at the White House between CNN reporter Jim Acosta and President Trump, Kellyanne Conway weighed in Sunday on the controversial video shared by the White House press secretary. Appearing on Fox News, Conway conjured up some alternative facts by saying that the video shared by Sarah Huckabee Sanders (after it had been tweeted out by an InfoWars editor) wasn't altered but, rather, like a sports highlight: “Oh, well that’s not altered. That’s sped up. They do it all the time in sports to see if there’s actually a first down or a touchdown.” Read more...More about Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Jim Acosta, Culture, and Politics

Sarah Huckabee Sanders offered the world an internet sourced doctored video demonstrating CNN's Jim Acosta physically chopping at the arm of a White House intern. The White House then used that video as an excuse to take away Acosta's press pass. Acosta was repeating a question that President Trump did not like, however Acosta felt important to get answered. Journalists try to push the President to answer questions at every press conference. It is their job. Multiple sources have confirmed source video of the actual event, played at normal speed, shows Acosta to be a professional who regarded the intern with respect, while continuing to push the President. The video shared by Sanders is a sham. Meanwhile, back at the White House, damage control was whimpering and hiding in a corner. Things became desperate enough to release the Conway. Be prepared to marvel in Kellyanne's logic free-zone. From Politico: "Oh, well, that's not altered, it's sped up. They do it all the time in spo...

"You mean, Mr. Kellyanne Conway?" Trump said to reporters when asked about a Thursday New York Times editorial by George Conway, who wrote that Trump's appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general was unconstitutional. "He’s trying to get publicity for himself," Trump said, dismissing the commentary from the lawyer, whose wife Kellyanne Conway is counselor to Trump, and managed his 2016 presidential election campaign. Early in his presidency, Trump had considered George Conway for a top Department of Justice job, but Conway withdrew from consideration.

Matthew Whitaker is a horrific choice to lead the Department of Justice for several reasons. In the last 24 hours, the American people have quickly gotten to know Matthew Whitaker, a former U.S. Attorney and Justice Department chief of staff who President Donald Trump has chosen to take over from the abruptly fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. And it is clear that Whitaker being in charge of the DOJ, even for a brief period, is an utter disaster for the fair enforcement of the law.Here are some of the things that Whitaker has said:Robert Mueller should not be allowed to investigate Trump's finances.In an editorial for CNN.com last year, Whitaker made clear that he believes the president's personal finances are off limits to special counsel Robert Mueller. "Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing," he thundered. He added that any attempt to look into the finances of Trump or his family would s...

Trump's brazen move came right after the American people voted. Americans across the country on Thursday took to the streets to protest President Donald Trump's appointment of a new acting attorney general to replace Jeff Sessions, thus usurping oversight of the Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation from Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein.As soon as Matthew Whitaker, who had been Sessions' chief of staff, was appointed to the position in violation of the traditional line of succession, observers immediately cried foul. There was no clear reason to replace Sessions with Whitaker unless the sole purpose was to install a crony at the head of the investigation, which Trump clearly feels threatened by.And if anyone is a crony, Whitaker surely fits the bill.He's made numerous controversial or wrong public claims about the Russia investigation demonstrating his antipathy toward the probe. He seems to share Trump's delusional view that is a "witch hunt." rather than a le...

It's a pretty damning record for the new acting attorney general. President Donald Trump is very good at changing the subject in the most dramatic of ways, and he did exactly that on Wednesday, November 7 with the bombshell news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had been fired and would be replaced by Trump loyalist Matthew Whitaker.When Americans woke up on Wednesday morning after Election Night, political conversations in the U.S. were being dominated by the fact that Republicans had increased their majority in the Senate by two seats while Democrats had achieved a majority in the House of Representatives—which is a definite game-changer for Trump’s presidency. But all of a sudden, the Whitaker bombshell had Americans contemplating what will or won’t happen with the Russia-related investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller—an investigation that Whitaker has been highly critical of. Whitaker, in various interviews, has made it clear that he shares Trump’s...

They lost the House — but the Senate is key to many of their ambitions. Just as many pollsters and political analysts were predicting, Republicans kept the United States Senate but lost the House of Representatives on November 6, 2018. Democrats’ House victory over Republicans was decisive: on Election Night, Democrats had taken at least 28 House seats from Republicans—and with the votes still being counted in about a dozen districts, Democrats stand to increase that number to around 35-40. But in the Senate, Republicans appear to have increased their majority by least two seats, if not three.President Donald Trump’s agenda was clearly rejected in a long list of House races, but his relentless campaigning on behalf of Republicans in high-profile Senate races seems to have worked with rural voters. In the Senate, at least three Democrats were voted out of office on Tuesday: Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Claire McCaskill in Missouri. And that w...

This is nothing new. Nixon and his administration, for example, used dog whistles in election campaigning and were motivated by racism in launching the War on Drugs. I am still reeling after the mass shooting targeting the Jewish community in Pittsburg last month. But perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised; since 2014 we have seen an increase in hate crimes across the United States. As others have noted, increasing use of dog-whistle rhetoric by politicians and pundits has to bear part of the blame.President Trump and others have stoked prejudice around crime allegedly perpetuated by immigrants, or in urban communities of color. Trump’s Twitter account and campaign speeches are filled with examples of language designed to appeal to racists.
