       Sunday, June 16, 2019
Four years ago today Trump launched his campaign. Media still hasn't figured out how to cover him The campaign press simultaneously showered Trump with nonstop attention, while making sure to give him a pass on policy. Trump's announcement speech on June 16 was just the first of endless campaign addresses he gave that were carried live and in their entirety -- while speeches made by Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were virtually ignored by cable news.

Here we go again: The campaign press is obsessing over white working-class Trump voters There's the collection of blue-collar Trump supporters; the interviews conducted inside roadside diners and saloons; and the plainspoken oaths of loyalty offered up to the president. The trusty props are all being dusted off for the 2020 campaign season, as journalists document Trump's "tight bond" with Midwestern working-class voters.

New York Times gets caught peddling bogus GOP attack on Democratic candidate -- again Despite all of that fact-checking and public debunking during the 2016 campaign, the Times couldn't find the time or space to inform its readers that the GOP book the paper wildly hyped turned out to be a dishonest, partisan hit job. Now here we are in 2019, and the Times is doing Schweizer's deceitful bidding once again.

Trump's cover-up is now in plain sight. Will the press say so? The corruption and contempt for transparency is out in the open, with united Republicans flaunting their radical ways. This creates a whole new challenge for Beltway journalists, who for generations have been trained to uncover scandals and root out wrongdoing done in private. But how does a press corps deal with a Trump team that doesn't even bother to hide the ugly stuff?

After the Barr hoax, press has no reason to ever believe Trump team again Barr's completely dishonest re-imagining of Mueller's sprawling investigation ought to signal a long overdue turning point for the press. This ought to be the moment when journalists acknowledge to themselves, and possibly to the public, that Donald Trump's radical administration is incapable of being honest, about anything, ever.

Arizona GOP Sues To Prevent Full Vote Count In Senate Race Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Rep. Martha McSally remain separated by less than 20,000 votes, in a race where more than 600,000 ballots remain uncounted and nearly two million people voted. Yet Republicans, always eager to suppress Democratic votes, are demanding that an entire category of mailed-in ballots be set aside.

Pentagon Has No Plans To Send 15,000 Troops To Border Trump initially ordered 5,200 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. Then out of the blue on Tuesday he nearly tripled that commitment to 15,000 troops. But over at the Defense Department, officials have no idea what he's talking about, raising doubts about whether Trump's latest claim has any basis in reality.

GOP congressman in even deeper trouble now for ignoring sexual abuse In recent weeks, nine former OSU wrestlers have come forward to allege that when Jordan worked as their wrestling coach, he knew that students were being sexually abused by the team doctor -- yet stood by and did nothing. Jordan is mentioned several times in the lawsuit as an example of an OSU official who turned a blind eye to the abuse.

French president debunks Trump's latest whopper about NATO allies Trump has long insisted that all NATO states should be spending 2 percent of their GDP now, not in 2024 as was agreed -- and that anything less means they are "delinquent" on an imaginary debt. Trump is lying about how NATO defense spending works, and he's lying about what our allies are doing in response to his threats.

Trump is about to drive America's largest nail maker out of business Harley-Davidson, facing retaliatory tariffs from Europe, announced on Monday that it will be sending U.S. jobs overseas because of the huge hit it's taking, thanks to Trump. According to Harley-Davidson, the tariffs would cost the company an additional $2,200 for each motorcycle it built in the U.S. and then exported to Europe.

Top US allies slam Trump for putting children in cages This year has featured endless condemnations as Trump has not only shocked the world with his abusive campaign against families, but has needlessly picked fights with allies Canada, France, and the U.K. as he wages a reckless trade war. Trump is now doing his best to dismantle this American ideal.

White House turns to job fair because no one wants to work for Trump The flailing Trump White House, which has set modern-day records for departures and firings, is being forced to host job fairs because it's having so much trouble getting people to work for the administration. Working for Trump has simply become toxic for lots of Republicans.

Trump lawyer Giuliani is more unpopular than even Trump himself This week, while speaking in Isreal, Giuliani warned that America's FBI and the Department of Justice are out to unlawfully "frame" an innocent Trump. He also claimed that prosecutor and investigators represent a "lynching mob." After he was roundly booed at Yankee Stadium, Giuliani insisted people only boo if "they love you."

Trump loses it after "spy" briefing flops with both parties He's desperately pushing the notion that there was "Deep State" plot to undo his campaign in 2016, and subsequently one to undo his presidency. Republicans still can't produce any evidence to support the wild and reckless claim. Nor can they explain how, if such a conspiracy to sink his campaign existed, he managed to win the election.

Royal wedding minister leads protesters to the White House After delivering a stirring sermon at last weekend's Royal Wedding in London that turned him into an international media star, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was back home in the United States on Thursday night -- leading a march to the gates outside the White House to protest "a dangerous crisis of moral and political leadership."

GOP plots to kick failed Speaker Paul Ryan out of his job Ryan's tenure has been marked by incompetence. Whereas then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was able to help President Barack Obama shepherd historic bills through Congress, such as Obamacare and the Recovery Act, which helped save the U.S. economy, Ryan has proven himself to be nearly completely ineffective, as Congress under Trump has ground to a halt, legislatively.

Even Trump lapdog Giuliani can't defend Trump's new ugly attack on Obama Trump and Giuliani are committed to trying to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation by suggesting there was a rogue faction within the straight-laced FBI to derail both Trump's campaign and then his presidency. But no matter how many times Fox News repeats it, proponents have not presented any facts to support the wild claim.

Giuliani willing to trade public humiliation for more TV time Giuliani was actually hired by Trump to handle negotiations with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, the need for a sit-down interview between Trump and investigators. That was before Giuliani became completely entangled in the hush money story.

White House stunned as Giuliani racks up new possible felonies for Trump It was a head-scratcher when Rudy Giuliani was announced as Trump's new top defense attorney just a few weeks ago, while the White House struggles to contain mounting legal woes. As a lawyer, Giuliani hadn't practiced inside a courtroom in nearly three decades, and his background was as a prosecutor, not a defense attorney. Turns out the skeptics were right.

Trump team might have obstructed justice even more with latest leak There's a growing consensus that it was Trump's side that leaked the questions. They may have done it to try to create an image of an investigation that was out of control, allowing Trump to rail against it -- which of course he did. Or it may have been leaked to send a public signal to Trump that the investigation is deadly serious and that he faces enormous legal peril if he agrees to sit down with Mueller.
