  • Trump Gave Secret Service Protections To His Kids Before Leaving Office

    Former President Donald Trump granted extended Secret Service protections to his four adult children. This is also extended to their spouses, according to Business Insider. He made this move before he left the White House in a last effort of wielding power. This expensive, full-time security detail is an unexpected move for most. The extended security detail could cost taxpayers millions of dollars. Given the amount of traveling that the Trump children do, the cost could be astronomical.

  • Far From Raising A Glass To The Bidens, The Trumps Are Raising Something Else

    On the morning of January 20, 2021, Donald Trump and Melania Trump will depart the White House as President and first lady. According to tradition and proper White House etiquette, the outgoing First Couple observes a number of protocols in the peaceful transition of power. But the Trumps have no intention of doing so. Rather than offering the hand of friendship, they will be raising their well-manicured middle fingers. CNN reports the Trumps have refused to invite the Bidens inside the White House before departing. Nor will they welcome the Bidens on the steps of the North Portico, much less ride with them to the United States Capitol. After all, the outgoing President and his family have refused to attend President-elect Biden's inauguration ceremony entirely.

However, sources say Pence isn't ruling out the option of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Still, sources say Pence and his team are reportedly worried that Trump may descend into even more mental instability. They fear that by invoking the amendment or starting an impeachment process, Trump will be triggered into action and put the nation at risk.

  • Lin Wood's Tweet That VP Pence Should Be Executed Too Much For Some Party Faithful

    Attorney Lin Wood tweeted on Friday that Vice President Mike Pence should be arrested for treason and executed by firing squad. The staunch supporter of President Donald Trump also blamed Chief Justice John Roberts and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the election results. According to Business Insider, Wood's remarks triggered some Republicans to issue tweets to distance themselves from him. Among them were Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis, and the conservative high school student Nicholas Sandmann. In recent weeks, Wood has filed or joined lawsuits to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's election victory. Wood has also cited conspiracy theories in the past.

  • Concern Growing Over Bizarre Company Trump Is Keeping In His Final White House Days

    Grave concern is growing among senior White House advisers about the people President Donald Trump has been listening to lately. CNN reports Trump has turned to a fringe group of advisers peddling increasingly dubious tactics to overturn the results of the election. That's generated new levels of uncertainty at how Trump will resist the coming end of his tenure. The coterie includes conspiracist lawyer Sidney Powell, disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and onetime chief strategist Steve Bannon. Other voices in Trump's ear are those from hawkish trade adviser Peter Navarro and the eccentric founder of the retail website Overstock. Sources close to the President say his advisers are particularly worried about what Powell may convince him to do in the coming days. Through it all, Trump has mostly abandoned the day-to-day running of government.
