Donald Trump calls former aide Omarosa a 'dog,' triggering outrage

Amorosa called a dog by Trump

President Donald Trump on Tuesday called Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog" on Twitter, prompting outrage by critics who said the comment was a racially charged attack on the former aide, who is a black woman.

The comment came amid the revelation of a new tape featuring a discussion among Trump campaign aides that suggested he had used a racial slur to describe black people. It also came amid back-and-forth attacks between Trump and Manigault Newman, who has written a book, "Unhinged," about her tenure that is highly critical of the president.

"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out," the president tweeted about Manigault Newman. "Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!"

highway bridge collapse in Italy

A bridge on a main highway linking Italy with France collapsed Tuesday in the Italian port city of Genoa during a sudden, violent storm, sending vehicles plunging 45 meters (nearly 150 feet) into a heap of rubble below. Italian officials said at least 20 people were killed and others injured.

A huge section of the Morandi Bridge collapsed over an industrial zone, sending tons of twisted steel and concrete debris onto warehouses below. Photos published by the Italian news agency ANSA showed a massive, empty gulf between two sections of the bridge.


Trump-appointed judge upholds Mueller's legitimacy

Mueller probe is legitimate

A federal judge appointed by President Donald Trump ruled Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller's probe is constitutional and legitimate, rejecting an effort by a Russian company -- accused of financing a massive political influence operation in the United States -- to stamp out the ongoing investigation.

Judge Dabney Friedrich, who Trump appointed to the U.S. District Court of Washington D.C. last year, is the fourth judge to quash efforts to upend Mueller's legitimacy and cancel his investigation. Judges overseeing the two trials of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort -- D.C. judge Amy Berman Jackson and Eastern District of Virginia Judge T.S. Ellis -- rejected Manafort's bid to invalidate Mueller.


President Donald Trump snubs John McCain again, not mentioning his name on defense bill

Trump snubs McCain again

President Donald Trump went petty, again.

The president snubbed Sen. John McCain, again.

He didn't mention the senator's name during the signing of what was titled the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019.

He should be ashamed. We should be ashamed of him.

The same may be true of Rep. Martha McSally, who has been kowtowing to Trump in the hope that it help her to win the senate seat of Sen. Jeff Flake. She also doesn't appear to mention McCain on Fox News, most likely to avoid upsetting Trump.

Goodlatte's son says he’s 'embarrassed' his father’s 'grandstanding' got Strzok fired

Goodlatte's son embarrassed by himBobby Goodlatte, the son of House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said on Monday he is “embarrassed” that his father’s “political grandstanding” cost FBI agent Peter Strzok his job.

Earlier Monday, it was announced that Strzok was fired on Friday after sending disparaging text messages about President Trump during the 2016 election.

Strzok, a frequent target of GOP critics of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, clashed with the elder Goodlatte during a hearing on Capitol Hill last month.

Republicans says Strzok's texts are proof of anti-Trump bias in the FBI, and the president cheered his ouster on Monday.


CBO downgrades economic growth projection for 2018

CBO downgrades projections for 2018The U.S. economy will grow at 3.1 percent in 2018, according to updated projections by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), down from its April estimate of 3.3 percent.

The updated estimate projects that 4.1 percent second quarter spike of real GDP will come back down in the third and fourth quarters.
"Such moderation occurs because several factors that boosted second-quarter growth— including a rebound in the growth of consumer spending from a weak first quarter and a surge in agricultural exports—are expected to either fade or reverse," the CBO report said.

Trump and Amorosa escalate feudPresident Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault Newman escalated their feud on Monday, with Trump slamming the former White House aide as “wacky,” “vicious” and “not smart” and the former “Apprentice” star threatening to release more tapes of secretly recorded conversations.

The latest flare-up came after Manigault Newman released the audio of multiple conversations she taped during her time in the West Wing, including one in which Trump expressed surprise and disappointment that she had been ousted, and one from the highly sensitive environment of the Situation Room in which chief of staff John Kelly fired her.

Surrounded by thousands of protesters, White nationalists slither homeThe racists wanted a show of force, a two-hour rally, and the respect of the nation’s capital. They got none of it.

Instead, the two dozen or so white supremacists were outnumbered by more than 1,000 protesters. The group relied all day on a heavy police presence to escort their rally and then, before it was even scheduled to start, they fled in police vans.
