President Donald Trump spoke to chemical workers in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. The speech was supposed to be about energy, but it quickly went off the rails.

Though he was there on an official presidential visit, not a campaign event, that didn’t stop him from using the slur “Pocahontas” to refer to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), telling the workers to “make sure we win” in the 2020 presidential election, or from joking about the possibility of there being no election at all.

Over the weekend, two more mass shootings occurred in the United States with one confirmed as the act of a White nationalist domestic terrorist. The second is still under investigation.

In a rare move, President Donald Trump addressed White supremacy, White nationalism and racism in the United States, condemning it in an address before the White House press corps for broadcast to the nation.

President Donald Trump left the White House Friday to travel to Indianapolis, Indiana for the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention. The President delivered a speech before the attendees that raised eyebrows and criticism.

One area of contention is Trump's use of the mass shooting in Paris, France to advocate for fewer sensible gun control laws, like universal background checks. Repeating the NRA rhetoric of the "good guy with a gun," Trump claimed if only the "other side" in the Paris mass shooting had one gun, things would have turned out differently.

President Donald Trump's propensity for near constant lying—an asset when he was a private businessman trying to appear more successful than his bottom line before investors and the public—paid off for people Tuesday night.

How could a President with a passing relationship with the truth pay off?

In a speech over a wide range of topics, President Donald Trump attempted to justify his decision to renege on his promise to Republican leadership to sign a continuing resolution authority (CRA) to keep the government operating. Congress agreed to a CRA until February 8, 2019 to avoid a shutdown.

With no federal budget approved for fiscal year 2019, which began October 1, 2018, the government is currently operating on a CRA that is set to expire. Trump initially threatened Democrats that he would be "proud" to shut down the government if he did not get the over $5 billion he wants for his unpopular and ill-advised border wall.

The symbiotic relationship between President Donald Trump and Fox News is well known, so it came as little surprise that Fox would make some convenient edits to the video of Trump's embarrassing moment in front of the UN General Assembly earlier today.

In case you missed it, Trump stated with a straight face:

Trump loves Twitter. Our President uses the platform to announce everything from negotiations with North Korea and the ban on transgender soldiers to tirades against “fake news,” which are all freely readable, even if you’re not one of the nearly 46 million followers he has on the site.

Unless, of course, you’re blocked. This is a punishment Trump doles out to some of his worst enemies on the site: Stephen King, Chrissy Teigen, and countless other Americans who’ve expressed less-than-stellar reviews of his policies.
