Shania Twain Apologizes for Saying She Would Have Voted for Trump

Country-pop superstar Shania Twain caused a stir yesterday when she said in an interview with The Guardian that if she would have been able to vote in the Presidential election that it would have been for Donald Trump.

Here’s the excerpt from that interview that caused such a ruckus on social media.

It is not the only way in which she expresses her conservatism. If she had been able to vote in the US election, she would have plumped for Donald Trump, she says. “I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest. Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want bullshit. I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

That’s it. In a very long interview, mostly about her life and career, this paragraph that was near the very end, caused people to lose their minds and prompted Twain to apologize/clarify what she meant.

This is really a non-story and why The Guardian even asked her about it is questionable. Twain is Canadian and therefore ineligible to vote in US elections, so it really doesn’t matter who she hypothetically might have voted for. Not to mention, it has nothing else to do with the profile piece about her life.

And if she had been able to vote for Donald Trump and felt that was the right choice – she shouldn’t apologize for anything.

Celebrities who say something different than what’s expected of them need to stop bowing to the liberal mob when they start crying about an opinion they don’t agree with. Last time I checked, people were free to think whatever they want and vote for whomever they like.

Trump campaign to Rokita: Take down your yard signs

They say there are only two things we can be sure of in life: death and taxes. Well, we might as well add another to that list: political campaigns with yard signs.

Every candidate likes seeing their signs with their name, website and ill-conceived logo and color scheme in a voter’s yard. That has to be the case, because why else would campaigns spend valuable funds on signs.

Anyway, one campaign that isn’t too thrilled with another candidate’s signs is none other than President Donald Trump’s campaign. And the candidate’s signs they aren’t real thrilled with: Todd Rokita.

As you can see, the Rokita campaign is prominently displaying the fact that they are endorsed by Trump/Pence. Except, that’s not actually the case.

You see, Rokita was actually endorsed by the Trump campaign’s Indiana leaders. That distinction is emblazoned underneath the much bigger Trump/Pence.  But hey, who really cares, right? Well, apparently the Trump campaign.

The Trump campaign has ordered those signs be taken down, stating that it gives the false impression that Rokita has the support of the president in this contentious, increasingly negative race.

The Rokita campaign’s response to demand?

“We don’t comment on yard sign strategy.”  Huh? Really?

It’s actually fairly embarrassing, especially for a campaign and a candidate that spouts “pro-Trump” ad nauseam.

Sean Hannity revealed to be Michael Cohen client

In a New York court room Monday, it was revealed that Fox News commentator Sean Hannity is a client of Micheal Cohen. Hannity was referred to as Cohen’s “secret third client.” Cohen’s other two clients: President Donald Trump and GOP fundraiser Elliot Broidy.

Broidy has since admitted to having a relationship with a Playboy playmate and then paying her $1.6 million after learning she was pregnant. Cohen helped arrange the transaction. Of course, you already know Cohen has admitted to paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 prior to the 2016 election.

Now, this new revelation of Hannity being a Cohen client comes after last week’s FBI raid of Cohen’s home and office, in which documents and business records were seized. The Department of Justice has since revealed that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer has been under investigation for several months for business dealings

Following Monday’s news, Hannity sent out a number of tweets defending himself.

This is just another strange turn in this long legal battle, in which Fox News’ biggest star is now entangled.

This obviously brings to mind a number of questions: Simply for transparency’s sake, why didn’t Hannity just reveal he was a client of Cohen’s? What will the network do, if anything? What exactly did Cohen do for Hannity? Is this why Hannity has been completely and unabashedly sold out to Donald Trump since he announced his run for president?

My guess: Hannity will soon be taking a “pre-planned, weeklong vacation” in the hopes that this story dies down.

New History Book is Blatantly Anti-Trump

“By the People: A History of the United States” hasn’t been published yet but it’s set to replace an older copy that many high schools in America use. When it does, students may find that the information contained in the text book is very liberally biased.

From Fox News:

Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, who saw a copy of the book sent to her school, told Fox News she was “appalled” after seeing how “blatantly biased” the newest edition of “By the People: A History of the United States” was toward Trump and his voters. She said it also glossed over all issues then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced during her campaign.

“There are specific parts where it goes off the rails from a historical textbook toward an op-ed,” Snyder told Fox News.

Definitely not okay for a teaching tool that’s tax payer funded.

Alex Clark, a radio host from the Joe and Alex Show in Indianapolis, broke the story and tweeted some photos from the textbook that Tarra Snyder shared with her. Fox later picked up on the story after the attention the the tweets were getting.

Here are a few examples of content found in the text book, as reported by Clark and Fox.

The final section of the book, titled “The Angry Election of 2016,” is highly critical of Trump.

“Most thought that Trump was too extreme a candidate to win the nomination, but his extremism, his anti-establishment rhetoric, and, some said, his not-very-hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters,” Fraser wrote.

“Clinton’s supporters feared that the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history,” the textbook says. “They also worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation.”

In addition to the election, the book also covers Black Lives Matter and Ferguson.

In a section titled “Black Lives Matter,” Fraser wrote that after the shooting of Michael Brown, Brown’s “parents were kept away at gunpoint.” He paints a negative view of police while glossing over violent tactics carried out by some rioters, critics say.

“The nearly all-white police force was seen as an occupying army in the mostly African American town…the police increased the tensions, defacing memorials set up for Brown and using rubber bullets on demonstrators,” he wrote.

Pearson Education, a well-known publishing company, told Fox that “the textbook was developed by an expert author and underwent rigorous peer review to ensure academic integrity.” They also stated that it was “designed to convey college-level information to high school students” and “aims to promote debate and critical thinking by presenting multiple sides” of the 2016 election.”

Yeah, right.

Parents are going to have to start paying attention to their children’s curriculums then having honest discussions with them about the historical accuracy of what’s being taught in public schools.

Either that or send them to Christian school or homeschool them.

Trump needs to put phone down and step away from the blue bird

There’s no denying, President Donald Trump likes Twitter. At approximately, 6 a.m. or so, every morning President Trump fires of a couple of tweets, usually about the prior days’ events.

Being the President of the United States, Trump knows anything and everything he posts on his personal Twitter page will become headlines around the world in minutes. And that’s exactly why someone really needs to grab his phone and ask him kindly to slowly step away from the blue bird.

For instance, ever since the recent images and videos showing the victims of the chemical attacks in Syria have come out, it has been a hot topic. Will the U.S. respond? When will they respond? How will they respond? What other countries will join the U.S.?

Well, yesterday, just like clockwork, Trump tweeted, but he decided to make Syria the subject of one of his tweets.

See, this is probably not the kind of thing you want to do if you’re the leader the free world. Telling other countries you’re going to attack may not be the best of ideas. You likely want to keep that kind of stuff quiet, and I don’t know, may be even a surprise to the country you’re planning to attack.

Several people close to Trump must have delivered a similiar message because the next day Trump tweeted the following:

Regardless, why in the world is he talking about national security issues on Twitter? Is he talking a poll?

Also, he continues to talk about the Mueller investigation. You know the thing that continues to hang around Trump and his administration like a stray dog that just won’t go away.

Absolutely nothing about these tweets are helpful. Anytime he talks about the Mueller investigation, he isn’t going to win, he just isn’t. The majority of the media already have their minds made up when it comes to that subject, their verdict: guilty.

Instead, he needs to discuss more about the strong economic numbers. He needs to keep the focus on what his administration is doing, the positive.

Instead, he continues to talk on Twitter about subjects that he just is not going to win. It’s starting to feel like he may just like the drama of it all.

 

GOP using Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton to attack James Comey

Chuck Schumer. Maxine Waters. Hillary Clinton.  Those names don’t exactly scream conservatism.

Waters, a totally ineffective legislator from the Golden State, spends more time on MSNBC calling for President Trump’s impeachment than she does on any kind of legislation. Seriously, in the nearly 30 years the woman has been in Congress, she has introduced and passed THREE bills!

Also, in 2009 she was investigated for conflict of interest, concerning meetings she took with a bank where had a vested financial interest.

Chuck Schumer, the liberal senator from New York, is a strong proponent for increased gun control and an abortion advocate, who actually high-fived a fellow Democratic senator after voting for late-term abortion. 

Then there’s Hillary Clinton. The former Democratic presidential nominee, who has an issue with emails just seemingly disappearing, was accused of using the State Department when she was Secretary of State to enrich her and her husband Billy’s foundation, and that’s just her most recent scandals.

She also referred to Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” and blamed white women for her presidential loss to Donald Trump, saying they simply listened to their husbands when it came to voting booth. Apparently, Hillary doesn’t think white women possess a brain.

Knowing all this about these three Democratic all-stars, why in the world would the GOP use them in their defense of President Donald Trump? But that’s exactly what the Republican National Committee is doing with a website they’ve set up, LyinComey.com. Quotes from all three bashing Comey are prominently featured on the site.

The new website is just part of the GOP’s plan to combat former FBI director James Comey as he’s set to begin his media tour; promoting his new book , which hits shelves Tuesday.

You’ve got to ask yourself, why are the Trump administration and the GOP so afraid of Comey?  If there was no wrongdoing on behalf of Trump and his administration in regards to their dealing with Comey- and I’m not suggesting there is – why such an aggressive plan to discredit him? Why not simply let this thing die down on its own?

What’s that old saying? The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Who would’ve thought the GOP would have ever quoted Hillary Clinton in their defense of anything?

Buckle up and hold on tight because from the looks of it things are about to become really, really interesting and that ain’t no Lyin’.

BREAKING: Trump-Pence Leadership Team Endorses Indiana Senate Candidate Todd Rokita

This endorsement is sure to make the Indiana GOP Primary even more interesting.

Rex Early, from Trump’s 2016 general election campaign in Indiana endorsed US Senate hopeful Todd Rokita a few minutes ago. Stating that Rokita “wholeheartedly” supported Trump, Early criticized fellow candidates Luke Messer and Mike Braun for not doing enough in 2016 to support Trump’s campaign.

Indiana voters will decide on their GOP candidate May 8th and that person will go on to face incumbent Joe Donnelly this fall in the general election.
