From RAW STORY:
For 29 years, National Public Radio’s “Morning Edition” has celebrated the Fourth of July with a reading of the Declaration of Independence by hosts, reporters, newscasters and commentators.
This testament to the nation’s founding document has previously proved uncontroversial. But that changed in the year 2017.
After NPR tweeted the accompanying text of the declaration line by line, Donald Trump backers (seemingly unaware of the source document) accused the media organization of playing partisan politics and attacking the president.
“So, NPR is calling for a revolution,” Twitter user @JustEsrafel wrote.

When he assumed his nation’s highest office, he had no previous governmental experience. Born wealthy, he’d never worked for anyone else. Now his nation’s commander in chief, he had never served in the military.
For his every move, he relied on a secretive, eccentric advisor bent on reshaping the nation’s political order. Demanding absolute loyalty, the new ruler did not trust anyone more popular than he was, and detested all opposition.
If these facts sound familiar, they fit not only President Donald Trump but America’s last king, George III.

From THE HILL:

You can’t make this shit up, kids! The Chairman and CEO of American Media and publisher of the toilet paper called The National Enquirer (among other tabloid rags) is name David….are ya ready?….Pecker!!! So, anyway, the latest is that the Twitler-loving Pecker has been bashing anyone Twitler perceives to be his enemies (like Joe Scarborough and bloody-faced girlfriend Mika Brzezinski) and covering up anything that might be detrimental to the Shithead-in-Chief. Put on your seatbelts, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride…

From MEDIA MATTERS:
This morning, the president of the United States used his favorite media platform for addressing the public to remind us of just how little respect he has for women — especially women in the press.
Shortly before 9 a.m., Trump posted two revoltingly sexist tweets attacking MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski for her appearance and intellect. The leader of the free world called the morning show anchor “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and alleged that she had attempted to visit him at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on New Year’s Eve and was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” at the time.

It’s hard to keep track of things when you’re making them up as you go. The new line from the Trump administration is a breezy “what investigation?” flick of the wrist to bat away questions about the reported expansion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe to include not just Russian election meddling and Trump’s ties to any such effort, but also possible obstruction of justice by the president. On Sunday, the president trotted out his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, to do the Sunday morning talk shows.
On Meet the Press, Sekulow stressed that the president isn’t even under investigation.
