Alex Moffat and Mikey Day reprised their roles as Eric and Donald Trump Jr. during the season finale of Saturday Night Live and once again Eric was the butt of most of the jokes. Fresh off their cold open appearance, the Don Jr. was asked on Weekend Update about the dubious Trump Tower meeting and about the calls he made to a blocked number, which many speculate were to his dad. “This may sound crazy,” Don Jr. said. “But the dishonest media is being dishonest.” Eric then laughed and tried and failed to give his brother a high-five, before Don. Jr said he never spoke to his father about the “harmless meeting.” Eric then chimed in to say he remembered his brother saying “Siri call Dad” because he has “pornographic memory.” Then, after Eric said a little too much about “hidden swastikas” in Trump Tower, Don Jr. gave his little brother Playdoh, which he promptly ate.

“No collusion.”For months, that’s been the position of President Donald Trump and the White House. They have insisted that they did not collude with Russia during the 2016 campaign.But in the wake of the Donald Trump Jr. revelations this week, conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer just doesn’t buy it.Appearing on Special Report Thursday night, Krauthammer said that, in his view, Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer, while not criminal, does indeed meet the definition of collusion. “I don’t think anybody’s claiming it’s illegal,” Krauthammer said. “But…the one thing it does do, it totally undermines a six-month story from the White House to which I was sympathetic that there wasn’t any collusion.”The fact that they collusion wasn’t necessarily well executed is irrelevant, according to Krauthammer. The attempt is all that matters. “This was a bungled collusion,” Krauthammer said. … [Read more...] about ‘Keystone Cops Collusion’: Krauthammer Blasts White House Over Donald Trump Jr.
Morning Joe spent their Friday examining the news about how Donald Trump Jr. met another person with links to Kremlin intelligence on the day he met with a Russian lawyer.Earlier today, NBC dropped an exclusive report about Natalia Veselnitskaya‘s companion who accompanied her as she spoke to President Trump‘s son and his campaign staff. While the name has not been released, the individual was described as a Russian-American lobbyist who was previously involved with the Soviet military and counter-intelligence communities.As the panel examined the news, Mike Barnicle tore into the Trump scion for what he viewed as an inadequate, delayed attempt of transparency.“The level of ignorance and duplicity I find truly astounding,” said Barnicle. “He does it and continues to talk about the e-mails and the meeting knowing there was a fifth person there, and never getting to the fifth person, never getting that out. I mean, it’s astounding.”As the … [Read more...] about Blasts Trump Jr.: Astounding ‘Level of Ignorance and Duplicity’
On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert took shots at President Trump for Monday night’s bombshell from The Washington Post that revealed he “dictated” Donald Trump Jr.‘s statement regarding his meeting with the Russian lawyer during the election.“It’s official — Donald Trump is a dictator,” Colbert stated, before adding “technically.”The Late Show host continued to mock the presidential father and son.“That is so weak!” he exclaimed. “Can you imagine? Don Jr. gets in trouble. He literally got his daddy to write a note for him!”He noted in the report that the advisors who wrote the statement “wanted to be truthful.”“They wanted it to be truthful, which is great because they can plead ‘we prefer to be innocent,'” he quipped.Colbert then took on Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for her defense of Trump, saying “The President weighed in as any father … [Read more...] about Colbert Mocks Donald Trump Jr.: ‘He Literally Got His Daddy To Write a Note For Him’
