    When you’re the CEO of a company, you have the final say. If subordinates are pushing a different view, they either get with the program or they’re gone. Donald Trump, long accustomed to running his own real estate empire, has taken a similar approach as the government’s chief executive. When he grew dissatisfied with Jeff Sessions, Jim Mattis, Rex Tillerson, John Kelly, John Bolton and many others, they were shown the door (and in some cases rushed to go through it.) But there are two areas where it is problematic for a president to take a my-way-or-the-highway approach: science and law enforcement. The latest media uproar over Trump--there seems to be at least one a day--was triggered by the way...
    It wasn’t quite the proverbial unstoppable force versus the immovable object, but Bob Woodward’s first appearance on Fox News since publishing the new White House tell-all Rage was a clash of some inside-the-beltway titans as Dana Perino tried to score points in a 15 round battle that had no clear winner. The former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush seemed to try to frame Woodward purely as someone fiercely anti-Trump, to which the famed journalists paid zero heed and instead stayed on message and showing his vast experience of television hits designed to promote his latest book. An early version of the headline for this post was “Dana Perino Repeatedly Cuts Off Bob Woodward While He’s...
    CNN’s Erin Burnett confronted Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh Wednesday night asking him what exactly President Donald Trump’s much-talked-about health care plan is and when Americans will see it. Burnett noted what Trump said at his ABC News town hall Tuesday night about his health care plan and asked Murtaugh, “Is this real or just an empty campaign promise?” “Of course it’s real,” Murtaugh said, before slamming the Obama administration over Obamacare and “if you like your plan you can keep your plan.” He defended Trump’s record on health care and said, “I’m not going to get ahead of the White House and their plans for the announcement. I think you heard the chief of staff say I...
    A sorority girl, a volunteer medic and a newspaper employee are among the 13 protesters who were arrested during clashes with police in Pennsylvania.   The bevy of protesters were taken into custody on Monday in Lancaster and slapped with a slew of misdemeanor charges including arson, riot, vandalism and criminal conspiracy.  A judge set bail for nine of the defendants at an astonishing $1million, including 20-year-old Kathryn Patterson, a Kappa Delta sorority sister at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster.  A GoFundMe campaign raising money to help Patterson post bail describes her as an 'ally' of Black Student Union at her school, which charges nearly $60,000-a-year for tuition.    Another campaign was set up for fellow defendant Taylor Enterline, 20, whose...
    Thirteen protesters who were arrested during clashes with police in Pennsylvania at the weekend remain behind bars after a judge slapped the majority of them with bonds of $1 million each.  Police say the protesters, who range from 16 to 43 years of age, were arrested for rioting in Lancaster in the early hours of Monday morning after the police shooting of a knife-wielding man sparked protests.   The 13 protesters remained behind bars on Tuesday with bail for seven of them set at $1 million each.       Authorities said the protests following Ricardo Munoz's fatal shooting degenerated into rioting that damaged Lancaster's police headquarters and produced an arson fire that blocked a downtown intersection.   Kathryn Patterson (left) and Lee Wise (right) were...

    At least nine people died during protests in Colombia’s capital city, where demonstrators set fires to city buses and torched police stations after a taxi driver was repeatedly tased by officers and later died. Video shot by witnesses showed the cabdriver, Javier Ordonez, 46, being pinned to the street Wednesday in a working-class section of Bogota, where he begged officers to stop, the Wall Street Journal reports. “Please, no more,” Ordonez said on the footage as the cops were atop him and firing a stun gun into his hip.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Russia clashed with Germany and five of its Western allies Thursday over the poisoning of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, with Moscow’s ambassador demanding evidence that a Soviet-era nerve agent was responsible and Germany’s envoy countering that his country’s findings have been handed over to the international chemical weapons watchdog. The confrontation came at the monthly U.N. Security Council meeting on chemical weapons in Syria, with the United States, Belgium, Britain, Estonia and France expressing grave concern at Germany’s determination that 44-year-old Navalny was the victim of a chemical weapons attack using a military-grade nerve agent from the Novichok group.

    Fox News’ Harris Faulkner and Jessica Tarlov clashed on Outnumbered after Tarlov accused President Donald Trump’s administration of lying about his downplaying of the coronavirus. On Bob Woodward’s new book, which reveals Trump downplayed the coronavirus in February despite knowing the danger, Tarlov said, “This is a problem for the Trump administration because he is on tape.” “Last week we spent all this time talking about whether anonymous sourcing — even if it was confirmed by multiple outlets, including Fox News — was legitimate. Now you have the president in his own voice, saying, ‘I purposely downplayed it, I know it’s airborne, I know it’s more serious than the flu,'” she declared. “That’s a very serious thing that he held...

During the Q&A portion of Trump’s Labor Day press conference, AP White House reporter Darlene Superville said, “You said a moment ago, ‘They will say anything.’ You were talking about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and their comments about the vaccine.” Before Superville could move onto her question, however, Trump took over, responding, “No, they say worse.

    SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Fighting resumed in southern Yemen between Emirati-backed separatists and the internationally recognized government, officials said Wednesday. The renewed violence comes after the separatists suspended participation in talks to implement a Saudi-brokered peace deal. The secessionist Southern Transitional Council, an umbrella group of militias backed by the UAE, said late Tuesday it informed Saudi Arabia of the suspension, accusing the government of Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi of mobilizing forces in the southern province of Abyan. There was no immediate comment from Hadi’s government, and a spokesman for the Saudi-led coalition embroiled in a years-long conflict in Yemen was not available for comment. The separatists’ announcement could thwart Saudi efforts to close a year-long rift amid...

    Congressman Stephen Lynch (D-MA) and Louis DeJoy had a heated encounter on Monday during the postmaster general’s testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Lynch used his time during the hearing to speak of the Postal Service’s perseverance through times of American crisis, but then he switched gears to slam DeJoy for removing mail sorting machines and causing delivery service delays with his efforts to overhaul the post office’s infrastructure. After speaking of how this will impact mail-in voting during the 2020 election, Lynch proclaimed that DeJoy is guilty of either “gross incompetence,” or “deliberately dismantling this once proud tradition” to President Donald Trump’s benefit. As Lynch was told that his time was up, he furiously charged...

Navarro defended the president’s executive action to “help deal with the pain” Americans are suffering, in the absence of a deal from Congress. At one point he said the negotiations “should be easy” and said the White House is questioning “whether the Democrats are really sincere when they come to the table.” “It doesn’t help when Speaker Pelosi goes out after every day, with her scarves flying and just beats the heck out of us for being cruel people,” Navarro said. Todd jumped in to ask about Trump’s role: “Where is...

President Trump has been outspoken with his opposition to mail-in voting ahead of November, warning of "voter fraud" and delayed election results.

    Joe Pesci thinks some of his Jersey Shore neighbors have taken things too far.  Their docks, particularly. The Ocean County resident has joined a neighborhood fight against two Lavallette property owners' applications for 315-foot docks -- more than twice the length of his own. Pesci, 76, says the standard 125-foot dock behind his $6.5 million mansion juts out just far enough at 91 Pershing Blvd. In a letter to Department of Environmental Protection officials, the Oscar-winner argued that doubling the length of docks will block Barnegat Bay views enjoyed by neighbors, and create a new hazard for boaters, kayakers and paddlers forced to navigate around the structure and in more dangerous tides.. “As a 30-year resident of West Point Island, I...

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Clashes between Iraqi protesters and security forces in central Baghdad killed at least two demonstrators overnight, security and medical sources said on Monday. It was the first such deadly incident for months at Tahrir Square, which became a symbol of anti-government protests during months of deadly mass unrest last year. The protesters had begun marching from Tahrir to nearby Tayaran Square chanting about worsening power cuts during a heat wave that has sent temperatures soaring above 50 degrees centigrade in Iraq. Security forces tried to contain the march and fired tear gas, police, medics and protesters said. Protesters threw stones and petrol bombs, a security source said. Medics at two hospitals in Baghdad said two men were...
    As violent clashes continue between law enforcement and protesters in Portland and around the country, debate is swirling around how police can cut back on lethal force. Some companies are stepping up to offer new high-tech tools like remote handcuffs for police to use instead of the more dangerous options like pepper spray, rubber bullets and flash grenades. Human rights group Amnesty International analyzed 500 videos from protests from May 26 through June 5 and found 125 incidents of excessive force across 40 states and the District of Columbia. "We saw a misuse of tear gas, pepper spray, pepper balls, 40 millimeter impact rounds, basically every combination of less-lethal weapon being used in inappropriate ways," said Amnesty International weapons investigator...

    Thousands of protesters flooded downtown Portland overnight, setting fires and launching fireworks as federal agents dispersed the crowd while being hit with large projectiles and targeted with lasers, police said. More than 1,000 protesters gathered late Thursday outside the Multnomah County Justice Center and a nearby federal courthouse, where they blocked traffic for several hours, Portland police said in a statement early Friday. By 11 p.m., the group started setting fires inside a fence protecting the courthouse and began trying to dissemble the barrier while hurling projectiles, prompting federal agents to disperse the raucous demonstrators, police said. Two hours later, a few hundred people returned to the fence at the federal courthouse, where they continued to start fires and launch...
    One of President Trump’s most senior former economic advisers says he left the White House early due to the combined effects of suffering COVID-19 and frustration at policy disputes at the heart of the administration. In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Tomas Philipson, who was acting chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers until announcing his departure last month, said his three-year leave of absence from the University of Chicago was drawing to a close, but he hastened his exit in part because of efforts by trade adviser Peter Navarro to sideline his team. He said their disputes pitted CEA’s more free market analysis against Navarro’s protectionist instincts over questions such as whether to bring back medical supply chains...
    ABC co-host Meghan McCain challenged Mary Trump over her tell-all book during a Thursday morning interview on “The View.” Trump’s book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” details a bevy of allegations against her uncle, President Donald Trump. Those allegations include the claim that he paid someone to take his college entrance exam and has used the N-word and anti-semitic slurs. The White House has denied the claims, pointing to Mary Trump’s financial incentive to publish a book of that nature. “Look, I think I’ve made it clear to your publishers, I don’t like books like this,” McCain told Trump. “I don’t like family tell-all books, especially when it comes to families...
    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is reportedly fighting cellphone carriers over the right to send Americans unsolicited texts. According to Business Insider, the campaign’s lawyers are in active talks with phone companies after a third-party screening tool blocked Trump texts in early July. The campaign alleges that screening the texts amounts to suppressing political speech, while carriers fear allowing them will result in fines for violating anti-spam rules. The 2020 election has brought a wave of text messages from across the political spectrum, particularly with the pandemic limiting in-person outreach. Many users didn’t opt in to these missives, and it’s unclear whether they violate federal laws meant to curb unwanted texts. The Trump administration, meanwhile, has imposed steeper fines for...
    FEMA Administrator Peter Gaynor was grilled by Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday over his agency's response to the coronavirus pandemic, but he struggled to even get answers out during a particularly tense exchange with California Rep. Lou Correa. Correa began with questions about whether masks are effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19 (Gaynor said they are), but then he pressed the FEMA head over U.S. reliance on other countries when it comes to personal protective equipment, or PPE. Illustrating his point, the Democrat compared the current situation to catastrophes like Sept. 11 and a possible viral bomb from an enemy country, as well as recent outbreaks of Ebola and Zika, NSA LEAKER REALITY WINNER AMONG MORE THAN 500...
    Clackamas County, Oregon – Eighteen months before she resigned as San Antonio’s health director amid tensions with an assistant city manager, Dawn Emerick clashed with another health department executive at a previous job in northwest Oregon, according to public records obtained by the KSAT 12 Defenders. In December 2018, while public health director of Clackamas County, Oregon, Emerick provided Human Resources there a list of close to 20 issues she had with the county’s health, housing and human services director. Emerick, who sent the complaint to HR from a personal email account, stated that HHS Director Richard Swift was not communicating properly, took credit for work that was not his own and fostered a “culture of intimidation and dysfunction.” Records...
    CNN anchor Brianna Keilar pressed Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh on the president's coronavirus response, arguing Tuesday that the administration had failed to provide adequate supplies for Americans during the pandemic. "The test had to be invented first before it could be mass-produced and spread around the country, and that's what the president has achieved -- 46 million tests have been conducted in this country. We're now testing 800,000 people a day," Murtaugh told Keilar. As of Tuesday evening, the U.S. has reported more than 48 million tests. Keilar responded: "Yes, and they take two weeks and sometimes longer, and you know that according to a study out of the Netherlands that if you don't test, get the results back within...
    Portland endured yet another night of violence and vandalism Monday — after the largest crowd in weeks stormed the streets for the 53rd day of protests. The massive crowd included moms dressed in yellow and dads dressed in orange, who marched with protesters to the Multnomah County Justice Center and created a human shield to protect them against police, KOIN reported.

    CNN anchor Poppy Harlow had a testy exchange with Trump campaign adviser Mercedes Schlapp Friday as the two discussed how the president responded to the coronavirus pandemic. "You all spend a lot of time wanting to criticize the president about his response," Schlapp told Harlow. Harlow responded: "I want to ask you about the facts because you have more than 130,000 Americans who died. This is a wartime president -- self-proclaimed -- who has now seen more deaths from coronavirus than the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and September 11th -- and the Obama administration left you guys a 69-page playbook on this." "Are you kidding me?" Schlapp shot back in reference to former President Obama. "They ended up depleting...
    CNN anchor Brianna Keilar had a tense exchange with GOP Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, who has filed lawsuits against cities that are mandating the wearing of masks. Keilar began the interview by pouncing on Sabatini over the rising coronavirus cases in major metro areas in his state. However, the representative dismissed what he suggested was the media's fixation on the number of cases instead of "hospitalizations and fatalities," which he insisted have either "flatlined or gone down" in states like his. "So if we focus on the two more relevant metrics, Florida is doing just fine," Sabatini told Keilar. The "CNN Newsroom" host remained combative, citing the 301,810 COVID cases and 4,521 deaths from the virus and the stressed ICU...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – President Donald Trump is pushing for schools to open this fall, even as coronavirus cases continue to climb across the country. “We want to learn in the classroom, so we want them open in the fall,” he said Wednesday. U.S. Education Secretary Betsy Devos slammed plans to alternate days in the classroom. “They must fully open and they must be fully operational,” she said. The president threatened to cut off funding for schools that don’t reopen and criticized his own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s safety guidelines, calling them “very tough and expensive.” “It’s guidance. It’s not requirements,” said CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said it’s a state and local decision when...
    CNN’s Brianna Keilar clashed with an Ohio sheriff Wednesday afternoon over mask mandates and whether people should have the right not to wear facial coverings. At one point during the debate, Keilar tried to present a study’s findings about the effectiveness of mask-wearing. Butler County (OH) sheriff Richard Jones expressed some skepticism, and Keilar noted, “This is the data the White House relies on. This is good data, I promise you.” “Well, I’m not trusting what you say,” Jones shot back. “I don’t know you that well, but listen, every week they change how you can catch this. How you can’t. First wear a mask, then not to wear a mask, then there’s a certain kind of mask. How...
    HENDERSONVILLE, North Carolina — North Carolina reportedly contributed more troops to the Confederacy than any other state and suffered more losses. But the ancestors of incoming GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn fought for the Union side. And in a break with President Trump’s stance on monuments to Confederate leaders, the 24-year-old Republican nominee to fill the House seat previously held by Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, says it’s time to end the romanticizing. “I understand people want to honor their ancestors, but I do not believe we should be romanticizing people who seceded from our country,” Cawthorn recently told the Washington Examiner as part of a wide-ranging interview. “They literally seceded from the United States and then fought...
    Liberal CNN commentator Bakari Sellers slammed conservative Rick Santorum for comparing the morality of slavery to abortion. On Tuesday, the two agreed that statues of historical figures such as President George Washington should not be taken down, but Sellers said they should be adjusted to acknowledge their ties to slavery. "George Washington was a slave owner. Put that on the side of the statue so that when people go and watch and see and want to understand who George Washington is, they get the full picture of what our country once was," Sellers said. Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, took issue with the characterization, arguing that statues that pay tribute to historical figures need to contextualize...

Sarri has been accused of getting on the wrong side of Cristiano Ronaldo and other Juventus stars. 3Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri revealed he only clashes with Gonzalo Higuain But that is not the case according to the Italian, who names Higuain as the sole player that he bumps heads with. Sarri said: "I always read that I fight with everyone, when actually the only person I fight with is Higuain. "I don't know why that is, but it's always been the case.

    CNN host Don Lemon clashed with Terry Crews over the Black Lives Matter movement in a heated interview on Monday, in which the actor warned about the “very militant-type forces in Black Lives Matter,” and the “extremes” of the movement. “When you have the leaders of the Black Lives movement, who are now talking about, ‘If we don’t get our demands, we’re going to burn it down,’ other Black people who are talking about working with other whites and other races, they’re being viewed as sell-outs, or called Uncle Toms. You start to understand you’re now being controlled,” Crews said. “You’re not being treated as loved, you’re actually being controlled. Someone wants to control the narrative, and I viewed...

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday defended President Donald Trump’s claim that Black Lives Matter is a “symbol of hate.” McEnany was responding to ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, who asked McEnany about Trump’s tweet posted earlier in the day commenting on a plan to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the street outside of Trump Tower in New York City. “Why is the president calling Black Lives Matter a symbol of hate?” Karl asked. McEnany backed Trump’s claim, accusing BLM protesters of chanting anti-police statements like, “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” Some participants at a Black Lives Matter protest at the 2015 Minnesota State Fair in 2015 were captured on video...
    White House adviser Kellyanne Conway clashed with reporters on Wednesday over a racist video that was shared on Twitter by President Donald Trump. While taking questions outside the White House, NBC’s Kristen Welker asked Conway about a video tweeted by Trump in which a man shouts “white power.” Conway noted that the president had eventually deleted the tweet. “Does he need to condemn white power?” Welker asked. “He condemned it by taking it down,” Conway replied. “He never heard that. He doesn’t support that phrase. This is a president that has worked for all Americans. If you’re not going to cover the other side of the coin, respectfully, everything he’s done for African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, vulnerable populations.” “You just want to talk...
    Following a violent clash between Black Lives Matter demonstrators and counterprotesters in Norco on Monday, the city has declared a local emergency and issued a daily curfew. The 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew will be in place indefinitely, city officials said Tuesday in announcing the measure.

The move came one day after a rally protesting police treatment of Black Americans was held at Neal Snipes Park, followed by a march to Norco City Hall. The gathering was marred by what city...
