    The left thinks that the conservative news is misleading and neglects to report on things that show Trump in a bad light, and the right thinks that the MSM is fake news and blames them for all of Trump's problems. I don't listen very often to conservative news outlets, so I'm unaware of the daily stories regarding Trump. And I'm sure there are lots of conservatives out there that usually don't listen to liberal news outlets.

    I thought it would be interesting if people posted news stories from their favorite news outlets every day. Only news stories please! You can use your own words to relate the story or headline, but in order to guarantee that there will be no arguments - Please refrain from personal commentary or comments.

    Trump claims that he was contacted by the Head of The Boy Scouts and was told that his speech was the best speech ever. The Head of The Boy Scouts says it never happened.

    Trump claims that the President of Mexico called him to tell him what a great job he was doing. The President of Mexico denies it ever happened.

    The White House and Fox News is involved together in the Seth Rich conspiracy. Allegedly the story was released to create an alternate theory that Rich was responsible for the Wikileaks and not Russia - therefore getting Trump off the hook. There are e-mails, texts, and voice mails from a rich Trump supporter stating that the W/H knew about the false story before it was released and that they ok'd releasing it.

    Trump calls the White House a dump.

    • Increasingly, federal officials are deciding simply to ignore President Donald Trump.
    • Evidence arrives every day of the government treating the man elected to lead it as someone talking mostly to himself.
    • The phenomenon has grown more pronounced as Trump keeps struggling to govern amid special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

  3. Trump's Top Strategist Is Now Suing The Federal Government To Decriminalize Marijuana

    At exactly 4:20 p.m. on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Pasadena, California, nearly a thousand people crammed inside a lecture hall to listen as five experts discussed the politics of “Weed Nation.”

    Sitting at the center of the panel was a well-tanned man with firmly parted white hair and a matching cream colored, three-piece suit. His brow furrowed skeptically as he looked over the crowd.

    “That guy in the center looks like he’s got a big stick up his butt,” said a woman sitting in the row behind me. Her friend laughed in agreement but whispered back, “Yeah, but his tie is really nice.”

    The man in question was Roger Stone, who has been described as the “brains” behind Donald Trump’s unlikely rise to the White House. Stone, 64, has a notorious history in politics going back four decades to when he played a role in the re-election of Richard Nixon and currently finds himself embroiled in the Trump campaign’s Russia scandal.

    But on this day, Stone was taking part in the third annual “Politicon,” a gathering of an estimated 10,000 political junkies who came out to hear pundits, policymakers, and activists debate the issues of the day.

    To the surprise of many, Stone has become an outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana. And it’s something he says he thinks he can convince Trump to come around on.

    “Medical marijuana is now a consensus issue in the United States,” he said during the panel. “And recreational marijuana is headed that way.”

    Stone said he has filed a federal lawsuit with Florida attorney John Morgan that asks the government to remove cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug. That classification, first enacted under the Nixon administration, puts pot in the same category as drugs like heroin and cocaine. Morgan has invested millions of his own fortune fighting for the legalization of medical marijuana in Florida, the state where Stone now lives with his wife and family.

    The duo recently formed a group called the U.S. Cannabis Coalition, which allows them to officially lobby the government, including Trump, on the issue. Stone is widely considered to be one of the most successful lobbyists in modern American history, even by his biggest critics.

    Jeff Sessions announced that he wanted to go after states that had voted to legalize medical and recreational marijuana. That position directly contradicts comments made by then-candidate Trump in which he said the issue of marijuana should be left to the states.

    “I hope to convince the president of the United States to honor his pledge,” Stone said. “It’s time for the administration to speak with one voice and not break faith with the American voter.”

    So, how did a man best known for electing men like Nixon and Trump get here? “Everyone evolves in their views,” he said. “If not, there’s something wrong with you.”

    In an unusually personal confession, Stone explained that his own views changed after seeing his father and grandfather battling terminal cancer. “They were going through chemotherapy and radiation,” a visibly emotional Stone said. “You could smell them burning alive. That’s when a cousin of mine suggested trying medical marijuana. And yes, I got ahold of marijuana and gave it to them. It made a tremendous difference.”

    Furthermore, Stone wasn’t shy about trash talking fellow Republicans who continue oppose marijuana.

    On former President George W. Bush, he quipped, “The guy snorted so much coke, he had a personal thank you note from Pablo Escobar,” while also knocking Ohio Gov. John Kasich, claiming that Stone fired him from a campaign job in 1976 when he allegedly found out a young Kasich was selling pot.

    Beyond his own personal connection to medical marijuana, Stone says it just makes sense for Trump to either fully support legalizing marijuana or at least get out of the way and allow the individual states to continue experimenting with their own laws.

    Stone noted that in swing states that Trump narrowly won like Michigan and Pennsylvania, support for medical and recreational marijuana has been rapidly increasing and that cracking down on pot could doom Trump in 2020.

    “A tidal wave is coming,” Stone said. “I predict the president will do the right thing.”

  5. Russian officials and politicians have vented their frustration with US President Donald Trump's decision to sign a bill imposing new sanctions on the country.

    In an emotional Facebook post, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev described the move as a humiliating defeat for Mr Trump. The Russian Foreign Ministry warned of possible new retaliatory measures.

    "The hope for improving our relations with the new US administration is now over," said Mr Medvedev, who served as Russian president in 2008-2012 before stepping down to allow Vladimir Putin to reclaim the job.

  6. I hope this is okay -

    MOSCOW (The Borowitz Report)—Capping an extraordinary year for the former television host, the Kremlin has named Donald J. Trump its Employee of the Month for December.

    “No one has worked more tirelessly for the glory of the Fatherland than Donald Trump,” the Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an official statement. “He has set a high bar for all Kremlin employees, and for that, we salute him.”

    To mark the honor, Trump’s name will be added to a plaque that hangs in the hallway outside the Kremlin’s H.R. office.

    According to Kremlin sources, Trump faced tough competition in the Employee of the Month voting, besting both Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and ExxonMobil’s C.E.O., Rex Tillerson.

    Speaking to reporters at his Mar-a-Lago estate, in Florida, Trump called the award “a tremendous honor, just tremendous.”

    “Obama was President for eight years and he didn’t win this a single month,” he said. “Loser.”

  7. NYT 8/2/2017
    WASHINGTON — Has President Trump told you about the time the head of the Boy Scouts called to say his was the best speech ever delivered to the more than century-old organization? What about when the president of Mexico picked up the telephone to let him know that his tough enforcement efforts at the border were paying off handsomely?

    The anecdotes, both of which Mr. Trump told last week, were similar in that they appeared to be efforts to showcase broad support for the president when his White House has been mired in turmoil. But they also had another thing in common, the White House conceded on Wednesday: Neither was true.
  8. Trump Exploits Child Labor at White House

    The National Park Service might be out of a job keeping the White House grounds maintained.

    A 10-year-old boy named Frank wrote President Donald Trump to offer his lawn mowing services "at no charge" -- and we all know the President loves a good deal.

    "Even though I'm only 10, I would like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for," Frank wrote.

    The young entrepreneur even offered to bring extra fuel and batteries for the power mower and weed whacker equipment he uses.

    Sanders said she spoke with the President and not only did he want to pass along the message to Frank that he's "doing a great job," but he also wanted to invite Frank to the White House to cut the grass in the famous Rose Garden.
