President Donald Trump spent an extra $400,000 of taxpayer dollars to fly from Washington, D.C. to his resort in New Jersey then back to Washington again for “the first ever Freedom Rally” at the Kennedy Center Saturday. During his speech, Trump decided “freedom” meant celebrating Christmas in July.

Trump began his speech by attacking the media and touting his election win, as he is known to do.

He went on to involved the memory of Benjamin Franklin and noted that at the Constitutional Convention, Franklin reminded his fellow delegates to “bow their head in prayer. I remind you, we’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again.”

Trump closed his speech to encouraging chants and assured supporters, “For those that are curious, we will build the wall.”

The fascinating psychology of the Kellyanne Conway dynamic and the "victim mentality"

STEP 1: Get a job as Trump's "mouthpiece"

STEP 2: Deliver any and every message Trump hands you

STEP 3: Get caught in multiple lies

STEP 4: Claim that the lies are actually "alternative facts"

STEP 5: When step 4 fails, claim that you are being attacked because "liberals" can't "handle strong women"

STEP 6: Once every last shred of your credibility has vanished, once you have been banned from certain networks and / or shows, double down on Step 5, claim that no matter how much unprecedented, historic, dazzling progress made by our President (presented by more "alternative facts), respond by saying that the "liberal media" only wants to see the President fail, and that not only are they undermining the selfless efforts of our President (who just burned up $800,000 of taxpayer money to go to the golf course in New Jersey and then fly back for a concert in Washington DC), they are also attacking you personally because you can't handle a "strong woman" (Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and many others apparently exist in some invisible, "alternate" universe).

STEP 7: Double down, triple down, quadruple down until you get to the point where people who should know better start taking the cheapest of cheap shots at you (like the recent story about someone saying her face looks like it has been "hit by a shovel". Use this as undeniable proof that you were right about points 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Pence staffers weary of being on poopy diaper duty for Baby Donnie

Republicans say it's only natural that some of the president's aides are reconsidering who they can trust as the White House continues to reel from an undisciplined president and multiple inquiries into whether Trump associates joined Russia in meddling in the presidential election.

"The administration doesn't know who to trust," Republican strategist Michael Steel said. "When you're under attack the circle tightens."

At the same time, Republicans say, some of the vice president's aides say they are frustrated over Trump's many self-inflicted wounds, some of which the conventional and even-keeled Pence is forced to try to explain away as he looks to smooth over hurt feelings with members of even his own party.

"Trump does something and Mike Pence has to do cleanup," Republican strategist Doug Heye said. "That can be very frustrating for staff."

"Well, invite Sean Hannity. Were not going to be schmoozed because you gave us some fish."

Buried deep within a New York Times look at the deteriorating relationship between President Donald Trump and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, the Morning Joe host revealed that an angry Trump once threatened to pull an invite for lunch because Scarborough was too tough on White House adviser Stephen Miller.

According to Scarborough, his relationship with the Trump took a turn for the worse shortly after the inauguration and hit a particularly rough patch after Miller’s disastrous star turn on Sunday morning cable shows.

Described as a screaming over the telephone by the MSNBC host, Scarborough claimed Trump demanded he and co-host Mike Brezinski ease up on criticizing Miller.

“It went back and forth for 20 or 30 minutes and it was a very ugly call,” Mr. Scarborough explained. “He was screaming at me saying, ‘Why are you being so tough on this kid — I invited you to lunch at the White House, and you know I could have invited Sean Hannity,’ and I said, ‘Well, invite Sean Hannity — we’re not going to be schmoozed because you gave us some fish.’”

Trump-supporting minister "tried to live a good life," now faces deportation

But according to the San Diego Union Tribune, Ramirez is awaiting deportation all the same. He’s been in a detention facility since May, when Border Patrol staked his house out and detained him.

“Trump said, ‘Let’s keep all the good people here and all the bad people out,’” Ramirez, who both doesn’t have a criminal record and has not previously been given a deportation order, told the Union Tribune.

“That’s great, but I’m here,” Ramirez said. “If I’m here, anybody can be here. I’m not saying I’m the best person in the world, but I’ve tried to live a good life.”

Despite Trump issuing the executive order that led to his ordered deportation, Ramirez, who came to the United States at age 11, said he still supports the president and considers himself a Republican.

Oh, Tweety. You're not helping with this.

Chris Matthews On Trump’s Family: At Least Mussolini Executed His Son-In-Law

MSNBC host Chris Matthews took a comparison too far on Thursday during a segment comparing President Donald Trump to a long line of power-hungry politicians, including Italian strongman Benito Mussolini.

Speaking of nepotism and the at-times baffling amount of power that Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner seems to wield, Matthews remarked, “So the son-in-law — you know, one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law.”

“I mean, I’m talking about Ciano,” he added, referring to Galeazzo Ciano, whom Mussolini had executed in 1944 after a sham trial found him guilty of treason.

Matthews sought support for the comparison from New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, who appeared on the segment as a guest, but Bruni wasn’t buying.

“I don’t think ... Let’s be careful there,” Bruni said, raising his hand sharply.


Republican Senate caucus sends Turtle-Gram to Mitch to save them from angry voters

A group of ten Republicans senators were the latest to join the chorus asking GOP leadership to save them from angry voters by cancelling the August recess.

In a Friday letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the group wrote, “we respectfully request that you consider truncating, if not completely foregoing, the scheduled August state work period,” the Washington Post reports.

Nearly a fifth of the Republican Senate caucus signed the letter, including Steve Daines (R-MT), Joni Ernst (R-IA), John Neely Kennedy (R-LA), James Lankford (R-OK) Mike Lee (R-UT), David Perdue, (R-GA), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Luther Strange (R-AL), Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and Thom Tillis (R-NC).

“Republicans are steeling themselves for attacks on their health-care negotiations over the July Fourth recess, with progressive activists planning to pressure any members of Congress they see at public events,” the Washington Post explained.
