    President Biden poked fun at his own low approval rating and called the Trump administration a 'horrible plague' as he cracked jokes and roasted the press at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner.  'Tonight, we come here to answer a very important question in everybody's mind. Why in hell are we still doing this?' Biden quipped as he took the stage in the room full of journalists and D.C. insiders.  'I know there are questions about whether we should gather here tonight because of COVID. Well, we're here to show the country that we're getting through this pandemic. Plus, everyone had to prove they're fully vaccinated and boosted,' he said. 'Just contact your favorite Fox News reporter they're all here vaccinated and boosted.' He then addressed his historically low poll numbers for the first time, claiming that journalists were the only people who were less well-liked.  'I'm really excited to be here tonight with the only group of Americans have a lower approval rating than I have,' Biden said.  'Well, that's hard to say after what we just saw this...

    The White House has said Joe Biden will not have the final say on whether Donald Trump can receive intelligence briefings after the president said his predecessor's 'erratic behavior' means 'he might slip and say something'. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki poured cold water on what had appeared to be Biden taking the unprecedented step to deny Trump access to classified information now he has left office.  Psaki said in a statement Saturday the president was merely 'expressing his concern' and will leave the final decision to his intelligence team.  'The president was expressing his concern about former president Trump receiving access to sensitive intelligence, but he also has deep trust in his own intelligence team to make a determination about how to provide intelligence information if at any point the former president Trump requests a briefing,' Psaki said, according to the Washington Post.  It is not clear when a final decision on the matter will be reached.    The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has not commented on the decision and did not immediately return DailyMail.com's...

    For now, it's an open question if President-elect Joe Biden has interest in testing his presidential power to try to forgive student debt.Joe Raedle |Getty Images It's a pressing question not just for higher-education experts and legal wonks. Tens of millions of Americans have a lot riding on the answer: Can the president forgive student debt without Congress? If the president was able to cancel student debt without passing legislation, in theory borrowers could see their balances reduced or eliminated overnight. On the other hand, the chances of Congress agreeing to forgive the loans is, at best, uncertain. Generally, Republicans are not in favor of debt forgiveness. For now, it's also an open question if President-elect Joe Biden has interest in testing his presidential power in this way.

    Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro fired back at President Donald Trump’s recent comments demanding that election results be announced quickly, dismissing the president as “all bark and no bite,” and vowing that in his state, “we will count these ballots.” Shapiro made the comments in an appearance on CNN Sunday evening, telling Erin Burnett that he had been concerned about delays in mail delivery, and urging viewers who had received an absentee ballot but not yet mailed it in to instead deliver the completed ballot in person at the dropbox at their local election supervisor’s office. Trump had spoken to reporters earlier Sunday while traveling between his campaign rallies, criticizing voters who hadn’t sent their ballots back “a month ago.” “I don’t think it’s fair that we have to wait a long period of time after the election,” said Trump. Burnett brought up the very close margin of victory in the 2016 presidential race — a mere 44,000 votes — and noted that several hundred thousand mail ballots in Pennsylvania had not yet been returned. “Ballots that are mailed prior...

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slithered into the Senate today to appear before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where he was confronted about the Trump administration’s many questionable foreign policy moves including the dismissal of career diplomats and the decision to withdrawal U.S. troops from Germany. While Pompeo was deflecting questions about his conduct and questionable moves at the State Department, Donald Trump was busy tweeting to the world, wondering if the November election should be delayed. Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine used his time to ask Pompeo about Trump’s tweet and whether he believes Donald Trump could delay the election. Pompeo replied, “Senator, i'm not going enter a legal judgment on that on the fly this morning.”  Kaine did not let go and noted Pompeo is a Harvard Law School grad who was on the Harvard Law Review, and questioned why he was struggling to answer such a basic legal question with a very clear answer: The president absolutely positively does not have that power. When Kaine kept pressing for an answer, Pompeo said, “Senator, in the end the Department of Justice and others will make that legal...
    (CNN)White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was pressed Wednesday on why a coronavirus stimulus bill includes $1.75 billion for a new FBI building."So, this was part of the President's priority of updating the FBI building, keeping it in DC, and it's been one of the things that's been mentioned that's in this bill and it's a part of one of the President's priorities and it's been a priority for several months," she said during an appearance on CBS News.Asked again what that provision was doing in the coronavirus bill, McEnany couldn't say, but said it is "not a dealbreaker."The funding is opposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, despite the fact that the Senate GOP stimulus proposal formally unveiled Monday included it.Pressed by a reporter on Tuesday over the funding, McConnell responded by saying he hopes that anything not directly related to Covid-19 will be stripped out before a new relief measure is enacted.

    The Trump family have claimed that 'no amount of monetary damages can ameliorate the loss' if Mary Trump is allowed to publish her tell-all book about them In their application for a temporary restraining order, the Trumps said that they would suffer 'irreparable harm' if Mary's book is released next month as planned. They argued that Mary agreed not to write a memoir back in 2001 under the terms of a settlement which resolved a bitter family dispute over the estate of family patriarch Fred Trump Sr. The agreement said that due to Donald Trump being famous and his sister Maryanne being a federal judge 'the family made the decision collectively to enter into an agreement that would maintain the confidentiality of the family's private matters'.
