Captain America hates on Donald Trump

- The Washington Times

The actor who plays Captain America, Chris Evans, has launched a fight against President Donald Trump, taking his public platform in a new political direction to talk up how bad the commander-in-chief is to any fan who will listen. Talk about 'dissing your fans. Doesn't Evans know Marvel fans and Trump fans are often one and the same?

John Bolton's right -- Israeli-Palestinian peace 'undoable'

- The Washington Times

Former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said President Donald Trump may have the best of intentions, but his attempts to forge peace between Israel and the Palestinians with a two-state deal would most certainly fail. "It's undoable," Bolton said. And he's very, very likely quite right.

Ramadan bombings target shoppers, families eating ice cream

- The Washington Times

ISIS terrorists targeted a popular ice cream shop in Baghdad for their next hit, detonating a bomb in the nighttime hours where families -- families with children -- went for a snack to mark the end of the day's Ramadan fast. A second bombing hours later targeted bustling shoppers in the Shawaka region. Happy Ramadan.

Hillary Clinton still blaming press, Russia, FBI

- The Washington Times

Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential election, just can't quite seem to get it through her head -- that she lost the presidential election. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, she told the writer she should've won -- she would've won -- had it not been for those dang, pesky Russians.

Maxine Waters: Less lawmaker, more circus act

- The Washington Times

Rep. Maxine Waters, once again, has gone on national television to talk about impeaching President Donald Trump -- to double down that time's a-tickin' and Americans are weary of waiting. This is a woman who has been blinded by hate.

GOP's slow-walk of Obamacare to bring certain failure

- The Washington Times

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Obamacare is going to be tough to repeal and that the bill he's bringing to the floor for vote probably won't meet voters' expectations. And with that, out the window flew any grand vision the GOP held for 2018.

4th Circuit's Russian roulette roll of the border

- The Washington Times

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit shot down yet another attempt by President Donald Trump to control and limit travelers to this country from terror hot spots in the world. It's like the panel just can't get enough of Russian roulette -- the game that's basically being played with America's border security and the open door approach the left wants to keep intact, regardless of terror and security concerns.

Mark Zuckerberg's brainless world tax to pay all for being born

- The Washington Times

Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of Facebook, has made his money -- his billions of dollars in a short span of time -- and now? Now, he wants yours. How? He pitched a global tax idea to Harvard graduations, a way of giving every man, woman and child a set amount of money for the simple reason of being born.

Republican candidate for Montana's only U.S. House seat, Greg Gianforte, sits in a vehicle near a Discovery Drive building Wednesday, May 24, 2017, in Bozeman, Mont. A reporter said Gianforte "body-slammed" him Wednesday, the day before the special election. (Freddy Monares/Bozeman Daily Chronicle via AP)

Greg Gianforte's teachable moment: Don't body-slam reporters

- The Washington Times

Greg Gianforte, Montana's Republican hopeful for the congressional seat vacated by Ryan Zinke -- who's now President Donald Trump's secretary of Interior -- had a little bit of an altercation with one of the reporters who questioned him at his campaign headquarters in Bozeman. And given the special election is Thursday, one might say the unpleasantries came at a quite inopportune time. Moreover, altercation is probably an understatement.

Bob Woodward's right -- the media is 'smug'

- The Washington Times

Bob Woodward, one of the legendary Washington Post journalists who broke Watergate said reporters ought to tread carefully, or face the risk of tripping over their own smug attitudes. That's a pretty apt summary of the nastiness and snark that passes as Investigative Reporting, and Hard Journalism these days.

AP fires freelancer for anti-Trump post

- The Washington Times

The Associated Press, in a near-unprecedented move for a mainstream news outlet, fired a freelance journalist it employed after it was discovered she posted anti-Donald Trump remarks on her Facebook page in 2016 -- and then sneaked into a closed Republican event and reported negatively on Kellyanne Conway.

Katy Perry's delusional hug-a-terrorist approach

- The Washington Times

Katy Perry, pop star-turned-Hillary Clinton-gal-Friday-turned-anti-Trumpeteer, offered up the bubble of all bubble responses to the terror attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that left adults and kids alike dead and injured -- and it went something like this: All we need is love.

John Brennan's Russian-Trump testimony big nothingburger

- The Washington Times

John Brennan, former CIA director, said during congressional testimony this week that Russian officials most definitely tried to interfere in America's 2016 elections, and that he was concerned they may have recruited some of President Donald Trump's aides to help with the sabotage. More conjecture, suggestion and innuendo, once again. Nothing factual to show that Trump worked with Russia to steal the election.
