    President Joe Biden ridiculed Donald Trump's view of Vladimir Putin in an interview released on Saturday, laughing off the way the former president said the Russian leader's invasion of Ukraine as a move of 'genius.' 'I put as much stock in Trump saying that Putin's a genius as I do when he called himself a stable genius,' Biden said in an interview with political commentator Brian Tyler Cohen. Ukrainians are engaged in a bitter fight for their country after Moscow ordered an invasion on Wednesday night.  Republicans have been quick to blame Biden for allowing Putin to make aggressive moves, saying the Russian leader viewed him as weak. At times they have hinted that Putin is less of a villain than Biden himself.  Trump went even further this week, talking in admiring tones about the way the former KGB officer had gone about invading Ukraine.   'I put as much stock in Trump saying that Putin's a genius as I do when he called himself a stable genius,' Biden said in an interview with political commentator Brian Tyler Cohen Ukrainian soldiers...
    DONALD Trump fans applauded a dramatically different look as he called himself the "45th and 47th president" while playing golf. In an undated video shared to social media, it appeared that the former president confirmed he is considering a run for the Oval Office again in 2024. 3Fans praised Donald's weight lossCredit: Twitter/The Columbia Bugle 3He played golf in the undated videoCredit: Twitter/The Columbia Bugle He has teased the idea for months in rallies and during interviews but has not yet officially confirmed it due to campaigning laws. Fans welcomed his comment in the video footage of him playing golf in what appeared to be one of his own courses. He wore a MAGA hat and white polo shirt as he teed up while his companions praised his shot. “Now on the tee, the 45th president of the United States,” the unidentified man speaking over the video states. “The 45th and 47th,” Trump appeared to joke in return, before taking his shot. Trump supporters commented on the ex-president's appearance after his 15lb weight loss...
    Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie is taking jabs at Donald Trump in his new book, Republican Rescue, which is released on Tuesday.  In his book, Christie, 59, argues that the GOP faces danger from conspiracy theorists trying to overtake the party, and writes that Republicans 'need to renounce the conspiracy theories and truth deniers, the ones who know better and the ones who are just plain nuts.'  'We need to give our supporters facts that will help put all these fantasies to rest, so everyone can focus with clear minds on the issues that really matter. We need to quit wasting our time, our energy and our credibility on claims that won't ever convince anyone or bring fresh converts onboard,' Christie wrote in excerpts published by The Guardian on Saturday.  He is appearing to reference Trump's repeated claims that voter fraud was to blame for his loss in the 2020 election.  The book will be released just a week after the former two-term governor mocked Trump for his failed re-election bid and loss to Joe Biden.  Chris Christie paints...
    Donald Trump said Saturday evening that his loyal base will need to turn out for Republican Glenn Youngkin to win the Virginia gubernatorial race on Tuesday. 'I think he should win,' Trump told Fox news' Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday evening. 'I'll be honest, my base has to turn out.' Trump endorsed Youngkin against Democratic contender Terry McAuliffe, who served a Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018. The former president is holding a tele-rally for Youngkin on Monday, which the candidate will not make an appearance at – making it seem that he is trying to distance himself from the former president.  The endorsement, Trump insinuated, is key for Republican candidates to get voters from the ex-president's base to turn out in elections that may have otherwise not gained as much national attention. Democrats have labeled Youngkin as a 'Trump acolyte' to try and deter independents and moderates from voting him in as the next Virginia governor, but Trump said that tactic 'backfires because I think it gets the base to come out and vote.' 'The last...
    Donald Trump is a different kind of beast. It’s been clear for some time that he’s completely untethered from the truth, and that his army of sycophants is dutifully orbiting Planet Bullshit right along with him. Trump tends to engage with the truth the same way he addressed COVID-19: just ignore it, the thinking goes, and it will disappear on its own. Or, like mixed vegetables, you can hide it in your hulking mound of mashed potato lies so your gape-mouthed troglodyte horde will never even know it’s there. I sometimes wonder what it feels like to have no shame and absolutely no fealty to the truth. I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to bask in Walter Mitty-like fantasies about myself—like how I’ve won prestigious-sounding, decidedly nonexistent awards and how Madonna was begging to date me at the height of her fame—but I’m constrained by consensus reality and the fact that I didn’t inherit $413 million from my dad. Well, as COVID-19 proved to Trump that there’s also a limit to his lies, his latest cranial methane blast may...
    Donald Trump furiously claimed Tuesday night that Mike Pence can overturn the election result single-handed in Congress Wednesday - and denied the vice president had told him he could not. The president issued a statement after the New York Times reported that Pence had told him over lunch that he had no constitutional power to 'decertify' states' slates of electors when he presides over Congress to certify the election result.  But Trump called that 'fake news' then outlined an extraordinary plan to either get Republican state legislatures to send Trump electors - or turn the election to Congress under the 12th Amendment, which could then vote for Trump. 'Decertifying' the results would plunge the country into a constitutional crisis but Trump claimed that Pence was in 'total agreement' that he 'has the power to act.'  Trump's statement publicly turned the heat up on Pence after a pressure campaign which has been going on in private for weeks and exploded into the public on Monday night at Trump's Georgia rally, then on Twitter Tuesday.  'The New York Times report regarding comments Vice...
    Things were already sub-ideal for the president and his Republican Party in the Peach State. The GOP’s incumbent senators, who in any normal year would be locks for re-election, both have a habit of shady stock trades. The early vote has been huge, and breaking Democrats’ way. Then came the instantly infamous call between President Donald Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger—the one where the president asked him to dig 11,000 votes or so out of the trash pile. For Trump, the news may get worse. One end of the call took place in Fulton County, Georgia, where Fani Willis was just elected district attorney. “She prosecutes without fear or favor. And her folks are looking at that call closely,” Daily Beast editor-at-large and Georgia political veteran Goldie Taylor explains on The New Abnormal’s first show of 2021. “Donald Trump—and anybody else in that room, helping him—could very well face charges here in Georgia, in Fulton County. Charges that they cannot make go away.”
    Former White House communications director Omarosa Manigault Newman says President Donald Trump is going through a 'psychotic episode' after losing the presidential election. 'I think Donald Trump is going through a psychotic episode. I think that he has come to terms with his loss, but his arrogance, his ego will not allow him to accept that he is not going to be president come January,' she said to MSNBC’s Alex Witt Saturday. Manigault Newman, who was a contestant on Trump's reality show The Apprentice, spent a year in the White House and was fired in December 2017, leading her to write a tell-all book call Unhinged. In the Saturday interview Manigault Newman spoke on an Axios report that claimed Trump is venting his outrage on those close to his office including Vice President Mike Pence and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. 'I really feel bad for those who are left because the reality is that Donald is going to turn to turn to anyone and blame everyone for his loss except for himself and the only ones left now are...
    Donald Trump's niece has claimed attention is 'like a drug' to the President after battling to win his father's approval as a young boy. Author and psychologist Mary Trump argued that her 74-year-old uncle has 'never really experienced' love and suggested that his feelings of 'abandonment' as a youngster forced him to develop defense mechanisms which hardened into permanent character traits. Speaking in a new discovery+ documentary, Donald Trump: A Faking It Special, Mary - an outspoken critic of her estranged relative - suggests her uncle lies 'constantly and relentlessly' to the point where he 'convinces himself that it's the truth'. Meanwhile his former National Security Advisor John Bolton sensationally claims that Trump can't tell the difference between 'truth and falsehood'.
    Karl Rove has said Donald Trump is 'on the edge of looking like a sore loser', urging the president to put the country first and accept the results of the election. Rove, who was George W. Bush's chief advisor, said on Sunday that Trump needed to put the country's interests first. Trump told Fox News on Saturday, in an interview which aired Sunday, that he felt the election was 'not over' and he would continue to fight.  He also refused to say whether he would attend Joe Biden's inauguration, which would make him the fourth president to shun the ceremony, after John Adams in 1801, John Quincy Adams in 1829 and Andrew Johnson in 1869. Asked whether he believed Trump would continue to contest the results even after January 6 - the day when both the Senate and House gather to officially count the votes - Rove told Fox news it depended on what Trump's aim was. Karl Rove, who was George W. Bush's senior advisor, said Trump needed to accept reality Donald Trump spent Sunday golfing at...
    President Donald Trump reiterated this Saturday that they will start a legal battle over the election results, again making unsubstantiated claims about a “theft” of votes, after NBC News and other media projected Joe Biden as the winner of the presidency . President Donald Trump’s campaign reported that starting Monday they will be initiating court litigation to “ensure that electoral laws are fully complied with and that the legitimate winner is in office.” “The simple fact is, this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any state, let alone the highly controversial states that are heading for mandatory counts, or states where our campaign has valid legal challenges. and legitimate ones that could determine the final winner, “the campaign added in a statement. After several hours of silence on Twitter, Trump once again declared himself the winner of the elections, claiming that he obtained “71,000,000 legal votes”, in a message written all in capital letters and marked by Twitter as “disputable.” The president...

    Winston Churchill's granddaughter Edwina Sandys penned a scathing op-ed where she reveals she voted for Joe Biden blasts Trump for his 'lies' and comparison's to Churchill.  Sandys, an artist and sculptor, noted that her grandfather steeled the British public for a long and difficult war with inspiring lines like 'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.' She contrasted this with Trump's repeated claims that the coronavirus will 'go away.' Trump in recent days has continued to say the U.S. is 'turning the corner,' even as the U.S. hit 100,000 new infections catalogued in a single day. Winston Churchill's granddaughter Edwina Sandys penned an op-ed blasting President Trump and revealing she voted for Democrat Joe Biden 'My grandfather did not mince words about the Nazi threat — or say something like, 'Hitler will be gone– disappear – like a miracle!' she writes in USA Today.  'He trusted people with the truth, even when difficult. No! Winston Churchill did not promise the British people a rose garden,' she adds.  Sandys, a U.S. citizen, writes that she was brought...
    Eddie Johnson, the disgraced former Chicago Police Chief, had had the equivalent of ten drinks before he was found asleep at the wheel of his cop car last year by two of his subordinates who let him drive himself home afterwards despite fearing for his safety.  Johnson was fired last December for lying about the October 16 incident. It involved him going to Ceres Bar in Chicago with Cynthia Donald, his security guard and driver, where they were seen kissing repeatedly.  He then drove her back to police HQ and started to drive himself but didn't make it all the way before he stopped the car and fell asleep the wheel, leaving the vehicle running.  The incident and what happened afterwards have been under review for a year but on Friday - a day after Donald filed a lawsuit against Johnson alleging he'd sexually abused and harassed her - Chicago's Inspector General's Office released their report.  Seven cops were suspended over their handling of the incident.  Eddie Johnson was found asleep at the wheel of his car in October...
    Sheriff Mike Reese was previously the chief of the Portland Police Department. AP Photo/Don Ryan President Donald Trump claimed during Tuesday's debate that the "Portland sheriff" endorsed him, which is not true.  The sheriff himself fact-checked Trump in a tweet: "As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him." Reese also tweeted that Trump talking about Portland has made his job "a hell of a lot harder." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The sheriff who serves Portland, Oregon, called out President Donald Trump for saying during Tuesday's debate that he had the sheriff's support.  Mike Reese, who was previously the Portland Police Chief before taking over as sheriff, said that he did not and will not endorse Trump.

    President Donald Trump compared his response to the coronavirus to the actions of the great leaders of World War II: Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. At a campaign rally in Michigan Thursday night, Trump defended himself after coming under fire when revelations in Bob Woodward's upcoming book 'Rage' showed he privately acknowledged the dangers of COVID while publicly telling Americans the situation was under control. Trump argued he was trying not to cause panic - a theme he kept up Thursday night, this time comparing himself to Roosevelt and Churchill, who became icons for their leadership in the United States and the United Kingdom during the war with Nazi Germany.  But his comparisons were flawed both in the historical sense and in his presentation of them - Roosevelt and Churchill famously leveled with the public about the challenges their countries faced during the war while Trump said everything would be fine during the growing threat of the pandemic, which has killed almost 200,000 Americans. 'As the British government advised the British people in the face of World War II,...
    Michael Cohen has said Donald Trump is 'guilty of the same crimes' that landed him in a federal prison, after the former fixer pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.  In his upcoming tell-all memoir the president's former personal lawyer has offered a blow-by-blow account of Trump's alleged role in a hush money conspiracy involving porn star Stormy Daniels.   Cohen, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations, calls himself the 'star witness' of the scandal that still could culminate in charges for Trump after he leaves office.  He described his new book, Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, as a 'fundamental piece of evidence' of the president's guilt. The memoir bookshelves Tuesday, despite his currently serving out a three-year federal prison sentence.   The White House called Cohen's memoir 'fan fiction.' 'He readily admits to lying routinely but expects people to believe him now so that he can make money from book sales,' White House spokesman Brian Morgenstern said in a statement. 'It's unfortunate that the...
    A maskless Donald Trump expressed the importance of wearing face-coverings to a packed, non-socially distanced crowd during a rally in Pennsylvania on Thursday, in which the president also admonished Joe Biden as a 'puppet' of domestic terrorists.    While the polls insist the presidential election this November will likely prove to be a ‘game of inches’, Trump assured a jubilant crowd gathered at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, in Latrobe, that Biden is ‘dropping like a rock in water’. Trump attributed the Democratic nominee's apparent demise to idea that Biden's plan 'is to appease the domestic terrorists and my plan is to arrest them and prosecute them.' He went on to accuse the former Vice President of being ‘a puppet of the socialist, Marxist and the cop-hating extremists' - a comment met with rapturous applause from the crowd. The rally comes as Trump's campaign is claiming new signs of momentum, including in the longtime Democratic stronghold that Trump won by less than 45,000 votes in 2016.  After months of trepidation, Trump campaign officials have been feeling encouraged in the last few weeks as...
    For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.This post was originally published as part of “The Trump Files”—a collection of telling episodes, strange but true stories, and curious scenes from the life of our current president—on October 5, 2016. In early 2006, eager to cash in on the housing bubble he believed would continue to grow indefinitely, Donald Trump unveiled his newest business venture, Trump Mortgage LLC, at a reception in Trump Tower. “Trump Mortgage is going to take better care of people than anyone in the mortgage industry ever has,” he promised. In some ways, Trump Mortgage was typical of a lot of Trump’s ventures, in that Trump licensed his name to an idea that someone else had come up with. In this case, the CEO, EJ Ridings, had suggested a mortgage company to Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., and Trump had given it the green light. But unlike some licensing deals, Trump also played a key role in getting it off the ground. He hired Ridings as the CEO of the company...
