Check out the bad, the more bad and bigly moments from this week in the Trump presidency:
Thursday, October 19
- President Donald Trump sent out a tweet that the FBI, Democrats and Russia might all be co-conspirators, saying, “Workers of firm involved with the discredited and Fake Dossier take the 5th. Who paid for it, Russia, the FBI or the Dems (or all)?”
- That whole body double Melania Trump story? It’s finally some fake news we can all get behind. Buzzfeed debunked the theory shortly after it went viral.
Wednesday, October 18
- Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson says President Donald Trump told the widow of a slain American solider that her husband “knew what he signed up for.” Trump, of course, took to Twitter to deny the report.
- Trump isn’t too happy about the NFL deciding that it won’t force players to stand during the National Anthem. “Total disrespect for our great country,” he tweeted.
Tuesday, October 17
- Not only are President Donald Trump’s approval ratings falling, but so is his net worth. According to Forbes, his fortune fell by $600 million to $3.1 billion.
- POTUS still isn’t happy about John McCain opposing several GOP health care plans and now warns that it could get ugly. “I’m being very nice. I’m being very, very nice. But at some point, I fight back, and it won’t be pretty,” Trump said.
Monday, October 16
- President Donald Trump said he’s “going to be looking into” a report about Rep. Tom Marino —his drug czar nominee —in the wake of an investigation that found that he helped steer legislation that made it harder for the government to take actions against giant drug companies.
- Hustler publisher Larry Flynt wants 45 out really bad. So bad that he took out a full-page ad in Sunday’s Washington Post saying he’ll pay $10 million to anyone who can provide information leading to his impeachment.
- Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is still refusing to admit whether he called the President a moron. “I’m not dignifying the question with an answer,” he told CNN.
- Twitter feuds and shouting matches between Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and Trump are likely far from being over but the two spoke decently of each other and stood next to one another during a Rose Garden briefing.
