Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) responded to President Donald Trump’s tweet about California’s wildfires. Schiff said, “There are a lot of root causes about why the fire season has become so much worse over the years but for the president at a time when people are facing utter disaster to be making a statement like this making a threat like this, this just how little he understands the job he has — that he would be punitive at a time like this rather than coming to the defense of people facing the worst disasters their lives. He’s out making these broad and false statements and threatening to remove funding from a state that is devastated right now.” He added, “This is a president more than any other is punitive. I think in the tax cut by away state and local tax deductions. That was aimed at the blue states. He is only the president, I think in his view of those in his who voted for him. The rest he could care less.” There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of

Conway on Video of Acosta-Aide Interaction: 'That’s Not Altered, That’s Sped Up'

Sun, 11/11/2018 - 15:38
On this weekend’s broadcast of on “Fox News Sunday,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said a video press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted of the interaction between CNN’s Jim Acosta and an administration intern was not altered. Conway said, “Do you mean by edited or, as others are saying, ‘doctored’ video? He either put his hands on her and grabbed the mic or he did not, and he clearly did.” She continued, “Well that’s not altered. That’s sped up. They do it all the time in sports to see if there’s actually a first down or a touchdown. So I have to disagree with them, I think, overwrought description of this video as being doctored as if we put somebody else’s arm in there.” She added, “He should have apologized to that young aide. As a woman who’s had people put their hands on me, thinking they have a right to get in my personal space. I don’t like him pulling that mike back and doing on her arm. It looked like a karate chop almost.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
