Trump Tweets “Cute!”

It’s Monday.

As the News Blender reported well connected financier Jeffrey Epstein has been charged with sex trafficking minors, the indictment was released Monday, following his arrest on Saturday.

10 days from now on July 17th, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, is scheduled to testify before two House Committees regarding the Russian Election Interference of 2016, as detailed in the Mueller Report.

The President has tweeted 3 times and re-tweeted 4 times, so far.

The tweet issued by The Reagan Battalion has now been deleted.

In February of 2019 Politifact rated this meme, “Pants on Fire” following the reappearance of the meme on Facebook.

As they note the image of the two shaking heads is real, however, the former President Reagan quote, that reads, “For the life of me, and I’ll never know how to explain it, when I met that young man, I felt like I was the one shaking hands with the president,” is false.

According to the Chief Administrative Officer for the Ronald Reagan President Foundation and Institute, Joanne Drake, the photo was taken in the fall of 1987, but she told Politifact that Reagan, “did not ever say that about Donald Trump.”

In August of 2016, Snopes reported that the same image with the same quote had been “widely shared on social media,” but they found no record that the quote existed before it first appeared on the Facebook page the “Trump Train,” in July of 2016.

According to Trump Twitter Archive this is the second time within the last few days that President Trump has thanked Ari Fleischer, for his praise regarding President Trump’s “Salute to America,” speech.

For What It’s Worth.

I refuse to get into the “crowd” size debate.

But I will share the best memes to result from the “Salute to America” speech as noted by both the News Blender and Snip Bytes.

May 15th, 2018, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson rules that Mueller’s appointment was both lawful and Constitutional. The 37 page opinion can be found here.

June 26, 2018, U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis rules that Mueller’s appointment was “consistent with both the Constitution and relevant federal statutes, and the Constitution and federal statutes do not mandate that the Attorney General adopt any particular procedures prior to appointing a Special Counsel.” The 31 page ruling can be found here.

July 31st, 2018, U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell rules that Mueller’s appointment is lawful and Constitutional. The 92 page ruling can be found here.

November 15th, 2018, U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich rules that Mueller’s appointment was lawful and falls within the Constitutional framework. The 32 page ruling can be found here. Of note, Friedrich was nominated to the bench by President Trump and confirmed in a bipartisan effort in the Senate, in 2017.

In February of 2019 as the News Blender reported, “A three-judge panel out of D.C. ruled that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment was constitutional.” The 16 page ruling can be found here.

According to the Daily, Ambassador Sir Kim Darroch sent “secret cables,” that said, the President of the U.S., was “inept,” that he “radiates insecurity,” and that media reports of chaos inside the Trump White House, are “mostly true.”

Following the report BBC News explained that the government has launched an official investigation into the leaked secret cables.

As to the advice that President Trump gave outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May, so far, all I could track down, was a BBC interview with May, in which she says “he told me to sue the EU. Not to negotiate, but to sue them.” The clip was posted in July of 2018.

This post will be updated within reason.

This is an Open Thread.

Authors Note: I’m digging into the weekend tweets, to find out exactly why Fox News Weekend earned President Trump’s ire and how come he mentioned for the first time via tweet according to Trump Twitter Archive the decision by Fox News to hire former CNN contributor and DNC Chairman Donna Brazile, who was hired by Fox News in March of 2019, according to AP News.
