Here is the full interview of Stormy Daniels, the porn star that President Trump paid, or didn’t pay, to keep quiet about an sexual fling, with Jimmy Kimmel.
The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announces its annual presentation of the symbolic “Doomsday Clock.” This year, the measure is winding from 2 ½ minutes to 2 minutes to “midnight” — or moving a notch closer to the end of humanity.
JOE MANCHIN, CNN: I got to the point — so many good people up here, both Democrats and Republicans, they’re all my friends. I work with them. When you get us together, it sounds like we make sense. We want things to work. And all of a sudden, all the power transfers to two people, the majority leader and minority leader, who makes a decision what moves and doesn’t move. The majority sets the agenda. I keep thinking my beloved Robert C. Byrd, laying in his grave, he’s got to be twisting and turning thinking how did we get to this. We’ve got to come back to regular order and where other senators have input and our voices are heard, we’re able to move the dialogue … I said the place sucks when it doesn’t work. I get a little frustrated at times. I let it fly that day. I probably shouldn’t have.
World Economic Forum in Davos 2018 Kevin McCarthy, Kirstjen Nielsen, Elaine Chao, Gerard Baker On American First
At the World Economic Forum in Davos 2018, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, DHS Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen, and Transportation Sec. Elaine Chao speak at a forum hosted by Wall Street Journal’s Gerard Baker. Jan 24, 2018
“It is quite a compliment to Davos that the president is coming,” Chaos said. “Stay tuned, and listen.”
McCarthy added: “You’ve got to understand what does ‘America First’ mean. We wanted to focus on the economics of America, we want the citizens to be safe at home and abroad… What is interesting is the number of countries now talking about their tax systems. With doing something as big as the tax change, the economic America rising helps the rest of the world. It also helps from a safety perspective around the world. I think you’ll hear about that, but also the future plans for infrastructure, for building greater relationships with other countries, and Davos is a great place for that to happen.”
“We’re all here to make it clear that ‘America First’ is not America alone,” Sec. Nielsen added. “We’re here to partner… We need those partnerships.”
McCarthy explains why ‘America First’ is not protectionist: “Where was the first time you heard Make America Great Again? President Ronald Reagan. Think about what the world looked like after Reagan was President of the United States. Secondly, it is only right to modernize the NAFTA agreement. The NAFTA agreement was created before computers — before technology. There’s nothing wrong with negotiating.”
“Look at what just happened with solar panels, and you tell me if this is protectionism or fair trade: So, the film that goes over the top of a solar panel is made by DOW chemical… China does not allow them to sell it. Who subsidize solar panels and sells them into America. Is it right and fair to have a president who stands up and says, ‘Wait a minute, if we want to have trade, let’s make it fair. If you deny an American company from even selling a product, that is not protectionism. That is creating more jobs. And then when you look to immigration. We have one of the most liberal forms of immigration because we assimilate, we love the process. But there is not one person who is going to tell you it is going well. If you look within chain migration, if you want to bring a brother or sister, it is a 30-year wait. So why don’t we create a system that works? Why don’t we create a system that works, as the president talks about, on merit? Doesn’t that really go to breaking the barriers down?”
“The world should take a step back and say, maybe you disagree with a word he says or something, but what are the results,” McCarthy said. “Would North Korea be talking to South Korea? Is that America First, or is that making the rest of the world safe?”
“I am proud that during my time the Senate I have used my time to be a champion of women and that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside everyday. I know there’s been a very different picture of me painted over the last few weeks, but I know who I really am,” Franken said.
Franken called it “ironic” that he is forced to resign for his sexual misconduct while people like President Trump continue to serve and Alabamians are on the verge of electing someone like Republican Roy Moore
Former President Obama spoke about the Trump presidency at a campaign event in New Jersey on Thursday afternoon,
What we can’t have is the same old politics of division that we have seen so many times before, that dates back centuries. Some of the politics we see, we thought we put that to bed. That has folks looking 50 years back.
It is the 21st century, not the 19th century. Come on!
Here is Obama’s full speech on the campaign trail with N.J. gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy.
Paul Ryan was the keynote speaker at the 72nd annual Alfred E. Smith Foundation charity dinner in New York City on Thursday evening.
Here are excerpts where Ryan roasts President Trump;
PAUL RYAN: I know last year, that Donald Trump offended some people. I know his comments, according to critics, went to far. Some said it was unbecoming for a public figure, they said his comments were offensive.
Thank God he’s learned his lesson…
A lot of people ask me, a guy from Wisconsin, what is it like to work on a daily basis with an abraisive New Yorker with a loud mouth. Once you get to know him, Chuck Schumer is not all that bad…
The press absolutely misunderstands and never records the big accomplishments of the White House.
Look at all the new jobs the president has created, just among the White House staff.
When you read the papers tomorrow, everyone is going to report this thing differently.
Breitbart will lead with: ‘Ryan slams president among liberal elites.’
New York Times will say: ‘Ryan defends the president in a state Hillary won.’
And the president will tweet: ‘300,000 at Al Smith dinner cheer mention of my name.’
Here is the full speech
