It's just another day...

Thursday morning, when Trump heard someone on “Fox & Friends” raising questions about a government surveillance bill up for reauthorization, suggesting it was a bad idea. Logically, the president of the United States of America listened to the person on his TV and sent a tweet that contradicted the position his own White House and national security team have taken on the bill.

The tweet read: “‘House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.’ This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?”

Aside from that being a bunch of unrelated and conspiratorial jibber-jabber, it also contradicted a statement the White House issued Wednesday night strongly supporting reauthorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

President Trump on Wednesday repeated a pledge to make it easier for people to sue news organizations and publishers for defamation, denouncing the country’s libel laws as a “sham” a day after his personal lawyer filed a lawsuit against a major media outlet, BuzzFeed News.

Fox News ...host Shepard Smith said...“For clarity, because we’re in the position to report facts here, all of that about libel laws––that was just a word salad of nothingness... He couldn’t change the libel laws if he wanted to change the libel laws...These are state laws.

Trump lauded delivery of "F-52s" to Norway. The planes only exist in ‘Call of Duty.’

Trump lauded the sale of the fictional planes alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg at the White House on Wednesday,...

Frightening to think that Fox & Friends now has control over the use of our Nuclear weapons with their consistently demonstrated control over 45's mind.

Right wing media has been exerting more and more influence over Republicans for decades now. And getting more and more powerful. All the while making a boatload of money. So now, lobbyists can go to right wing media and spend money instead of congress.

President Trump reportedly referred to immigrants from Haiti and African countries as coming from “@#$%& countries” on Thursday.

Trump made the comment in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers during a discussion of protections for immigrants from several countries, according to The Washington Post.

“Why are we having all these people from @#$%& countries come here?” Trump said, according to multiple people briefed on the meeting.

He reportedly suggested that the U.S. should bring in more immigrants from countries like Norway.

Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) were present at the meeting, and were surprised by the comments, according to the Post.

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” a White House spokesman said when asked to comment on the Post story, before outlining Trump's requirements for an immigration deal.

Looking forward to Sarah's answers to questions about this.
