This week we all saw Donald Trump’s tweet in which he recognized Russia’s interference in his favor in the 2016 presidential election: “Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax … And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist.” Minutes later, a seemingly different Donald Trump barked at reporters on the South Lawn: “No, Russia did not help me get elected. You know who got me elected? I got me elected!”



Rev. Franklin Graham apparently disagrees with both of them. In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon in January 2018, Franklin revealed who he thinks was behind Trump’s election as President of the United States: “I think God put him there. He offended everybody, just like you said. He seemed to be — he did everything wrong as a candidate and he won and I don’t understand it, other than I think God put him there.”




Continuing with this theme, Graham recently announced on Twitter that he and other Christian leaders across the country are asking Americans to take a moment this Sunday, June 2, “to pray for President Donald Trump.” As Graham explains, “I don’t believe that any President in the history of this nation has been attacked more than President Donald Trump. He is our President, and if he succeeds, we all benefit. But if his enemies are allowed to destroy him and pull down the presidency, it will hurt our entire nation.”


It appears that Graham is a little late to this game. Just over a week ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a point of telling us, “I pray for the President of the United States” after Trump got colicky and ran out of an infrastructure meeting. Many people may be praying for Trump for different reasons. But if there is anyone who should be praying for Trump right now, it’s Trump. The walls are closing in and the drumbeat for impeachment is growing louder each day. Trump should pray that once he realizes that his best option is to make a resignation plea deal, he won’t discover that it’s too late.

We Found The Guy Behind the Viral ‘Drunk Pelosi’ Video  The Daily Beast

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Getty On May 22, a Donald Trump superfan and occasional sports blogger from the Bronx named Shawn Brooks posted a video clip of Nancy Pelosi on his personal Facebook page. The clip showed Pelosi at her most excitable, stammering during a press conference as she voiced frustration over an abortive infrastructure meeting with the president. Brooks’ commentary on the video was succinct: “Is Pelosi drunk?” Thirteen minutes later, a Facebook official told The Daily Beast, Brooks posted a very different Pelosi video to a Facebook page calle…

White House lawyer who handled Mueller inquiry to leave June 14  CNN

White House counsel Emmet Flood, the lawyer who has dealt with the response to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, will leave now that Mueller’s probe report has been delivered, President Donald Trump announced Saturday. “Emmet Flood, who came to the White House to help me with the Mueller Report, will be leaving service on June 14th,” Trump tweeted. “He has done an outstanding job — NO COLLUSION – NO OBSTRUCTION! Case Closed! Emmet is my friend, and I thank him for the GREAT JOB he has done.” Flood has been White House counsel since Ty Cobb’s departure from the position last spring. …

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler Taken To Hospital After Health Scare At NYC Press Conference: Gothamist

A press conference on the reauthorization of New York City speed cameras was cut short on Friday after Congressman Jerry Nadler suffered a medical issue on the podium.

Nadler, the 71-year-old chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, appeared to briefly lose consciousness during the Q&A portion of the Upper West Side briefing.

“You seem a little dehydrated, brother,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio, handing him a water bottle as a voice over the loud speaker declared a “code blue” in the gymnasium. Medical personnel quickly surrounded Nadler, and the room was cleared of reporters and advocates.

A spokesperson for Nadler’s office told Gothamist that “he is okay. Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He was sitting down so did not faint or anything. He is responsive and receiving a check-up.” Reporters on the scene said he appeared to be in “okay spirits,” and photos show him smiling.


De Blasio, Nadler and several elected officials had gathered at the West End school to tout a “rapid expansion” of speed cameras in the city, following the passage of a state law reauthorizing the program earlier this month. Starting in July, the cameras will expand to 750 school zones, with extended hours of operation, including on summer weekdays and evenings.

The mayor also said he will begin pushing for reforms in Albany to escalate fines and suspend vehicle registration for repeat speeding and red-light offenders. A spokesperson for the Mayor’s Office did not respond to Gothamist’s inquiries about whether he supported similar legislation in the City Council.

On Thursday, Nadler told MSNBC that he’d spoken to Special Counsel Robert Mueller about his investigation into Trump, and that Mueller was prepared to testify in private before Congress.

UPDATE: Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters outside the press conference it seemed Nadler was “just taking a little nap for a moment. I put my hand on his shoulder and said, ‘Jerry are you okay?’ He didn’t respond right away.”

The mayor added that “after a few minutes he started coming back to his energetic self,” speculating that it was probably just dehydration. Nadler has since been removed from the premises in an ambulance. President Trump has not tweeted about the episode…yet.
