Trump Nominates Former CNN Contributor Stephen Moore to Federal Reserve Board

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

President Donald Trump nominated Stephen Miller, a former CNN contributor and campaign advisor, to the Federal Reserve Board, he announced in a tweet on Friday.

“It is my pleasure to announce that @StephenMoore, a very respected Economist, will be nominated to serve on the Fed Board,” Trump tweeted. “I have known Steve for a long time — and have no doubt that he will be an outstanding choice!”

Moore, who is a visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation, co-authored a 2018 book titled, “Trumponomics: Inside the America First Plan to Revive Our Economy.” He was also a CNN contributor until recently.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday. However, CNN media reporter Brian Stelter tweeted on Friday that Moore was no longer with the network.

Moore joined CNN as a contributor in early 2017. Given this news, he is no longer with the network, a CNN spokeswoman confirms. https://t.co/v2donxatUE

Last week, Moore, who is a member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board, wrote an op-ed titled “The Fed Is a Threat to Growth,” which criticized the Fed for its rate hikes.

Moore is the latest television personalities to be appointed by Trump for a government post, joining Larry Kudlow, Heather Nauert, John Bolton and former Fox News co-president Bill Shine.

A CNN panel in January got heated after Moore suggested that federal workers were treating the government shutdown as a “paid vacation.”

Trump repeatedly slammed the Fed, specifically its chairman, Jerome Powell, his own appointee, for raising rates four times last year.

On Friday, Trump renewed his attack on the Fed, telling Fox Business that the country’s gross domestic product would have been higher had it not been for the interest rate spikes.

“If we didn’t have somebody raising interest rates and do quantitative tightening we would have been over 4 [percent] instead of at 3.1 [percent],” Trump told host Maria Bartiromo. “I’m not happy with it.”

It is my pleasure to announce that @StephenMoore, a very respected Economist, will be nominated to serve on the Fed Board. I have known Steve for a long time – and have no doubt he will be an outstanding choice!

Meghan McCain Calls Out Trump for ‘Obsessing Over’ Her Family: ‘No One Will Ever Love You’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Meghan McCain fired back at Donald Trump Saturday after the president delivered yet another verbal attack on her father, the late Sen. John McCain.

“No one will ever love you the way they loved my father,” “The View” co-host said in a tweet replying to the POTUS. “I wish I had been given more Saturday’s with him. Maybe spend yours with your family instead of on twitter obsessing over mine?”

The sharp words came after Trump disparaged McCain in yet another tweet on Saturday, blasting the Vietnam veteran over his “no” vote to repeal Obamacare and his part in bringing the Steele Dossier to public attention.

“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.’” Trump wrote, quoting former Clinton special prosecutor Ken Starr. Trump continued on Sen. McCain: “He had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!”

The president has long nursed a grudge against McCain. The Arizona Republican was a sharp critic of Trump’s during the 2016 presidential campaign and frequently frustrated his legislative plans during his last months in the Senate. One of McCain’s final Senate votes was also one of his most significant — preventing the chamber from sending a repeal of Obamacare to the president’s desk.

Trump has never shied about going after McCain, famously telling pollster Frank Luntz in 2015 that the Senator was only considered a war hero “because he was captured,” adding that he liked “people who weren’t captured.” The attacks from Trump continued even after McCain was diagnosed with the malignant brain tumor and his subsequent death.

Meghan McCain Calls Katrina Pierson ‘One of the Dumbest People Ever to Work for Trump’ After Tweet About John McCain

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The late John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, called Katrina Pierson “one of the dumbest people ever to work for Trump” after Pierson appeared to call on the late senator to answer questions — without taking note of his death earlier this year.

“You’re exponentially more stupid than I’ve ever given you credit for — and I’ve always considered you one of the dumbest people ever to work for Trump, which is quite the fete [sic]. Delete your account,” McCain tweeted Friday morning.

Pierson, who worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign and describes herself as a “senior adviser” for Trump’s 2020 campaign, appeared to slam Meghan’s father, the late Sen. John McCain Thursday for failing to answer questions about the so-called Christopher Steele dossier. Sen. McCain died earlier this year.

On Thursday, Pierson tweeted: “Since everyone is just now realizing his staffers role in the #RussiaHoax. We have been asking questions! John McCain Still Refuses to Answer Questions About His Role in the Dossier.”

The last sentence was the headline of an old post from when McCain was still alive, but because it ran together with the previous sentences, it appeared that Pierson was unaware of McCain’s passing.

This is such important work, I implore you to dedicate yourself to nothing else until you finally get an answer from him.

Colbert Wants to Remind You Republicans Have Never Wanted Insurance to Have to Cover Pre-existing Conditions (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

On Friday night’s episode of “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert opened his monologue by pummeling Donald Trump and the rest of the Republicans for trying to act like they haven’t spent years trying to repeal Obamacare and ensure that health insurance providers didn’t have to provide coverage for pre-existing conditions.

“Polls indicate that health care is the number one issue for voters. That shows how hopeful Americans are. Donald Trump is president, and they still want to live,” Colbert quipped. “Good for you. Good for you.

“Americans like certain aspects of Obamacare a lot. A recent poll showed a full 90 percent of people said it was either somewhat or very important that the law protect people with pre-existing conditions. 90 percent! Nothing in America is that popular. That’s the Tom Hanks with fudge sauce of Obamacare provisions.”

Also Read: Seth Meyers: The Answer to ‘Is Trump Lying or Is He Stupid’ Is Both (Video)

After driving that point home, Colbert then took aim at Republicans, who have very much not operated as though they have any interest in protecting coverage of pre-existing conditions even though many of them are now trying to say they do.

“But that’s awkward for Republicans, since they have voted to repeal Obamacare at least 70 times. Of course, Republicans in Congress were doing it to please their biggest donor,” Colbert joked, as an image of the Grim Reaper wearing a MAGA hat appeared on screen. “But with public sentiment so against them, the GOP came up with an entirely new health care plan: lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie.

“And it starts at the top. Two days ago, Trump tweeted this: ‘Republicans will totally protect people with Pre-Existing Conditions, Democrats will not! Vote Republican.’ What the hell? Does Donald Trump think we’ve been in a coma for two years? We’re not covered for that. He spent most of his presidency trying to repeal Obamacare until one man stopped him.”

Colbert is referring to John McCain, whose deciding vote killed Mitch McConnell’s Obamacare repeal bill last year. Then “The Late Show” played a clip of Trump talking about that vote, saying that “I would’ve gotten rid of everything” had McCain not voted against that bill.

“Yes, he would have gotten rid of everything, and ‘everything’ includes coverage for pre-existing conditions he just swore that he would save,” Colbert said. “Nothing Trump is saying is true, but he doesn’t care. ‘Sure, every word out of my mouth is a lie. But you knew that when you elected me. I’m a pre-existing condition.’ And it’s not just the president. Republicans are saying this all over the place.”

Next up was a brief montage of Republicans Rick Scott, Brian Kemp and Ted Cruz insisting vociferously that they definitely are all about coverage of pre-existing conditions. The Cruz clip saw the senator go so far as to declare that “everyone agrees we’re going to protect pre-existing conditions.”

“Oh, yeah, senator Cruz, everyone agrees,” Colbert said. “Except you, because you filibustered for 21 hours to try to completely eliminate all of Obamacare. Remember this?”

Then “The Late Show” played a clip of Cruz reading part of the Dr. Seuss book “Green Eggs and Ham” during his filibuster. “Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like them, Sam I am. I do not like green eggs and ham!”

And then Colbert finished the rhyme with a twist of his own.

“I will not eat them in a box. I will not eat them with a fox. I will not eat them with a fork. You should vote for Beto O’Rourke,” Colbert said.

Meghan McCain Makes Tearful Return to ‘The View’: ‘Fabric of Democracy Is Fraying’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Meghan McCain made an emotional return back to “The View” where she has been absent since her father Sen. John McCain passed away in August.

McCain thanked her co-hosts for all their support’s during her father’s yearlong fight with brain cancer and used her return appeal to unity in the United States.

“I understand how divided and how scared lot of people are. It looks like the fabric of democracy is fraying. We do not surrender, I’m not surrendering, so you have to join me in not surrendering,” she said.

McCain also took a veiled swipe at Trump, who clashed with her father in his final years.

When someone “says something racist at a rally you push back. That is what America is,” she said, a reference to a moment during the 2008 presidential campaign when Sen. McCain defended Barack Obama from a racist smear by one of his supporters. Trump has often been accused of peddling racism by his critics.

“I really want to thank all of America with being so kind with my family.”@MeghanMcCain returns to @TheView for the first time since her father Sen. John McCain passed away in August: “He wanted me to come back here, which is why I’m here.” https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/BwYtgRZdC3

“He believed in American exceptionalism. He believed America is the greatest country in the history of the world,” said McCain of her father breaking down during several moments. “He believed that when your candidate’s opponent says something racist in a rally, you push back. That is John McCain and that is what America is.”

She gave a particular shoutout to co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who she said her father always loved and whose dressing room she would often cry in as Sen. McCain’s illness progressed.

Once a surrogate for her father’s campaigns, Meghan McCain emerged as a personality in her own right as a host on Fox News and then on “The View.” She remains the primary Republican on the show’s panel, but has not been shy about continuing her father’s legacy of disagreeing with Trump.

Colbert Fact Checks Trump’s ‘Sickening’ Puerto Rico Tweet: ‘It Is in No Way True’ (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Trump’s America never stops being a weird and confusing place, but it got weirder and more confusing on Thursday when Trump tweeted what amounts to a conspiracy theory involving the death toll in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria last year.

So while Hurricane Florence is presently hitting North and South Carolina, Trump was still talking about last year’s big storm. And in his monologue on “The Late Show” Thursday night, Stephen Colbert was pretty mad about it.

“President Trump has been laser focused on hurricane response this week. Just not this one. He’s talking about the one a year ago, because he’s been tweeting a lot about what a great job he did responding to Hurricane Maria, that decimated Puerto Rico last year, resulting in the death of almost 3,000 American citizens,” Colbert said. “It’s really hard to imagine anything more horrible than that. Other than this tweet.”

Here are the Trump tweets in question.

3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000…

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 13, 2018

…..This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 13, 2018

As Colbert read the tweets out loud in his Trump voice, the crowd booed loudly.

“Yes, you’re my favorite bunch of lying, ungrateful fake dead people. I like Puerto Ricans who don’t die,” Colbert said, still in the Trump voice and referencing Trump’s “I like people who weren’t captured” crack about John McCain from 2015.

“I just wanna state that not only is this a sickening tweet, it is in no way true,” Colbert continued before detailing where that death toll number came from. “At the government’s request, researchers at George Washington University’s Milken Institute of Public Health did a study and estimated that 2,975 people died as a result of the disaster and its effects, which unfolded over months.

“And it had been pushed out of the front pages, because of all the other bad news about Donald Trump. Then he brought it up again. It’s kinda like he was on trial for littering and he said on the stand, ‘I only threw that cup out of my window because I was distracted by the homeless man I ran over. Pretty sure he died of old age.’ “

The Season 28 episode also included the White Stripes as musical guests.

McCain died last Saturday after battling brain cancer. In his life, he was known for his sense of humor that frequently lightened discussions of tragic events in his military career.

The “SNL” episode with McCain marked the first time in the history of the show that a sitting senator played host. In his opening monologue on the show, he joked about then-president George W. Bush, only to find himself getting comedy tips from cast member Fred Armisen, who played a Venezuelan nightclub comedian Fericito. Armisen suggests McCain needs to make goofy faces to accentuate his punchlines, and tells him to get a catch phrase.

You can watch the video of the monologue above, and catch the entire episode at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.

In his political career, McCain was called a maverick. The last two years of his life saw him often sparring with Donald Trump after Trump’s win as the Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential election. Trump did not attend McCain’s funeral, but three other presidents did — Bush, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, along with former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Bush and Obama joined McCain’s daughter, Meghan, in eulogizing the senator.

Meghan McCain Praised for Father’s Eulogy: ‘Never Heard Applause at a Funeral Here Before’

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Meghan McCain’s passionate, tearful eulogy delivered during her father, Sen. John McCain’s, funeral, was widely praised from across the political aisle, with many noting what appeared to be swipes at President Donald Trump.

“Make no mistake: the applause ringing out at the Cathedral when Meghan McCain says ‘America has no need to be made great again because America was always great’ is not standard,” wrote New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser. “Never heard applause at a funeral here before.”

Though she never mentions Trump by name, McCain seemed to be aiming some of her remarks directly at the current White House during her 17-minute eulogy (which you can watch in full here). Trump was not invited, though his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner (along with several members of Trump’s administration) were in attendance. Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush were also on hand to give eulogies of their own.

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness,” she said, towards the beginning of her remarks. “The real thing. Not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly. Nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served.”

She spoke about her father’s “fire” and how grateful she was for the outpouring of support from those who “stood in the warmth and light of his fire.”

“A few have resented that fire, for that light it cast upon them, for the truth it revealed about their character,” she continued. “But my father never cared what they thought.”

But the most pointed remarks came when McCain referenced Trump’s campaign slogan, which received wide applause from those inside the National Cathedral in Washington D.C.

“The America of John McCain is generous and welcoming and bold. She’s resourceful, confident, secure. She meets her responsibilities. She speaks quietly because she’s strong. America does not boast because she has no need to. The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”
