While the weekly “Trump Dump” is always an interesting look back at the most outrageous things that President Donald Trump said over the past week, things truly hit a new level of obscene during his press conference yesterday, which even left Fox News reporter Shepard Smith floored.

In fact, it was so insane, that our weekly “Trump Dump” this week is completely dedicated to the craziest ten things he said during the press conference, as they more or less topped anything else he’s said this week. Here are some of the highlights:

  • In his opening remarks, Trump noted,”I don’t think there’s ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done.”
  • He berated the press, noting, The press has become so dishonest that if we don’t talk about, we are doing a tremendous disservice to the American people. Tremendous disservice. We have to talk to find out what’s going on, because the press honestly is out of control. The level of dishonesty is out of control.”
  • Trump noted that, upon beginning his Presidency, I inherited a mess. It’s a mess. At home and abroad, a mess.”
  • He noted he’s been having “great” conversations with foreign nations that are “far more productive than you would understand.”
  • Trump compared ISIS to cancer, detailing that, They’ve spread like cancer. ISIS has spread like cancer — another mess I inherited.”
  • A blatant lie the media has already disproven was stated regarding his electoral college votes, noting he guesses he had the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.”
  • He noted that, regardless of what the media is trying to portray- that of a chaos going on behind the scenes- his “administration is running like a fine-tuned machine, despite the fact that I can’t get my cabinet approved.”
  • Trump noted he will be “issuing a new executive action next week that will comprehensively protect our country.”
  • He told a reporter that what General Mike Flynn did “wasn’t wrong” even though he admitted he asked for Flynn’s resignation.
  • Perhaps most shockingly, when asked if he would include the Congressional Black Caucus- who he didn’t know CBC stood for- in conversations about urban/inner city agendas, Trump boldly asked the African-American reporter if they wanted to set up a meeting and shockingly asked “Are they friends of yours?”

In our top ten things above, we didn’t even get a chance to mention Trump berating multiple reporters, sarcastically insulting the BBC as “another beauty,” claiming he can “handle a bad story better than anybody,” and so much more.

Seeing as the above has rendered even some conservative reporters speechless, there’s no other word to describe it other than shocking. I anxiously await the next “Trump Dump,” as I’m a bit anxious to see just how much more crazy that will be. Stay tuned.

Yesterday, The Dirty reported that President Donald Trump had accused the NSA and FBI of leaking information to The New York Times and The Washington Post.

This morning, Trump took to Twitter to yet again to call out The New York Times in regards to the leaks.

Leaking, and even illegal classified leaking, has been a big problem in Washington for years,” Trump tweeted. “Failing @nytimes (and others) must apologize!”

“The spotlight has finally been put on the low-life leakers!” he added. “They will be caught!”

Something tells us The New York Times isn’t going to apologize, so we hope Trump isn’t holding his breath waiting.

Trump and Netanyahu Press Conference – “No Greater Supporter of Jews Than Trump”

Within the last hour, President Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, gave a joint press conference.

Here are the highlights:

While speaking, Trump shared:

  • A reaffirmation of our bond with “cherished ally” Israel.
  • “The state of Israel is a symbol… of resilience in the face of oppression… and of survival in the face of genocide.”
  • “I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing- I mean ever- a nuclear weapon.”
  • “Our security assistance to Israel is currently at an all time high, ensuring that Israel has the ability to defend itself from threats of which there are unfortunately many.”
  • “We reject unfair and one sided actions against Israel at the United Nations which has treated Israel- in my opinion- very, very unfairly.”
  • A calling for “working toward a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.” 
  • “The United States stands with Israel in the struggle against terrorism.”

Netanyahu then spoke and he said:

  • Thanked Trump for the “truly warm” hospitality. 
  • Said he “deeply values” Trump’s friendship. 
  • “Israel has no better ally than the United States and I want to assure you, the United States has no better ally than Israel.”

While nothing about President Donald Trump‘s first few weeks in office has been traditional, this morning things hit a new peak when he outrightly accused the NSA and FBI of leaking classified information to the media.

Trump took to Twitter to share that,Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?).Just like Russia.”

Thank you to Eli Lake of The Bloomberg View,” he added. “‘The NSA & FBI…should not interfere in our politics…and is’ Very serious situation for USA.” 

Trump issued one final tweet about his thoughts on this, stating, The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!”

Since these tweets were just issued, it’s definitely going to be an interesting day to news-wise, as it will be fascinating to see when and if the NSA and/or FBI decide to respond to this.

Stay tuned to The Dirty as we’ll be sure to keep you posted.

The state of California has been having a lot of issues going on with the Oroville Dam.

President Donald Trump decided to act upon it, approving an emergency declaration for the state through FEMA.

Here is the press release:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal emergency aid has been made available to the State of California to supplement State, tribal, and local response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the potential failure of the emergency spillway at Lake Oroville Dam beginning on February 7, 2017, and continuing.

The President’s action authorizes FEMA to coordinate all disaster relief efforts that have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the counties of Butte, Sutter, and Yuba.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent Federal funding.

Timothy J. Scranton has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal response operations in the affected area.”

EXCLUSIVE: Religious Freedom Restoration Act Not Introduced Into Congress, Media Spinning Story

EXCLUSIVE: Religious Freedom Restoration Act Not Introduced Into Congress, Media Spinning Story

While President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence recently spoke out in favor of LGBT rights, there has been a lot of chatter regarding the possibility of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act being instated in the coming weeks. The news around this act has stated that it would allow people to discriminate against LGBTQ people on the basis of their religious beliefs.

We spoke exclusively to a political insider close to the Trump camp who told us that, “The Religious Freedom Restoration Act has not been introduced into congress at this point.”

“There’s no plans to enforce this against the LGBTQ community as of now,” our source added, “so that’s definitely the media spinning it for propaganda.”

Our insider had more to add, telling us that, “The media is throwing this around like it’s a shot against the LGBTQ community. President Trump is not planning to reverse LGBTQ rights nor take away their right to marriage.”

“Even if this act was to be enforced,” they continued, “it has more to do with protecting churches and other religious organizations to ensure they remain tax free.”

“The media is trying to portray President Trump as anti-LGBTQ,” our insider wrapped with telling us, “and that couldn’t be further from the truth. There were many gay people working on his campaign and he was the only Presidential nominee in history to speak out for gay rights from the get go.”

I hope that both our President and Vice President continue to protect LGBTQ rights and focus on the actual problems in our country to continue to improve it.
