April Ryan on Sean Spicer’s insulting behavior: ‘I’ll be back’

Addressing, American Urban Radio Networks Washington Bureau Chief April D. Ryan, White House press secretary Sean Spicer defended President Trump, saying, "You're hellbent on trying to make sure whatever image you want to tell about this White House stays." (Reuters) And the more we see of him, the nastier he appears. Ryan, the longtime White House correspondent and Washington bureau chief for American Urban Radio Networks. Ryan cited investigations into the activities of the Trump campaign and Russia. And as he unfurled his explanation, he snapped at Ryan: “I’m sorry that that disgusts you. On the one hand, you’re saying what are we doing to improve our image? The record is fact — yet somehow Spicer couldn’t handle the weight of the recent past as presented by Ryan. “It was insulting but … people are seeing the treatment of the press and how we are treated,” said Ryan in a chat with the Erik Wemple Blog. Following her face-off with Spicer, Ryan received messages from many friends and colleagues, including Republicans and a former Republican White House press secretary. But I’ll be back. Watch the whole thing.

Is There Rhyme or Reason in Trump’s Approach to Syria, Afghanistan and North Korea?

History News Network And he is warning of retaliation against North Korea’s maverick leadership. The start of the Trump administration has been chaotic. Bush seven months, and the traumatic events of 9/11, to go on the warpath. Donald Trump’s foremost targets are the Muslim world and North Korea. The decision to hit the Shayrat airbase with cruise missiles three days after a chemical attack was reported in the rebel-held town of Khan Shaykhun was a policy reversal by Trump. The attack on the Syrian airbase also helped Trump counter domestic criticisms of close ties with Putin and the Kremlin lobby, though it was not enough to stop new revelations. To say that mutual accusations of recent days between the White House and the Kremlin amount to a phony war would be an exaggeration. But to say that it is at the lowest point is way over the top. On North Korea, Trump said that President Xi had explained the situation, and that he was confident that China would do something. Trump’s manner of telling the Chinese President over chocolate cake that cruise missiles were on their way to hit Syria was strange and amusing. Not to be left behind, North Korea showed off new missiles in a huge military parade in Pyongyang to celebrate the 105th anniversary of its founding leader Kim Il-sung. As President Trump deals with Syria and North Korea, the stakes are high because of Russian and Chinese involvement. Like the cruise attack on Syria, Trump’s decision to drop a 22000 pound…

Trump’s Executive Order Threatens to Wreck Earth as a Livable Planet for Humans

Decades of progress on cleaning up our dirty air took a significant hit on Tuesday, along with hopes for a livable future climate, when President Trump issued his Energy Independence Executive Order. Most seriously, the order attacks the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Clean Power Plan, which requires a 32 percent reduction in CO2 emissions from existing power plants by 2030 (compared to 2005 emission rates.) Most seriously, the order attacks the U.S. On March 15, Trump also ordered the EPA to review tough air pollution rules for cars and light trucks that were set to kick in between 2022 and 2025. non-profit corporation funded by the EPA and the auto industry) estimated that air pollution kills between 91,000 and 100,000 Americans each year—nearly double the number of U.S. The World Bank study estimated that in the year 2013 alone, the U.S. Polling in 2016 by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication revealed widespread support among Americans for the key provision of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan: setting strict CO2 limits on existing coal-fired power plants. The authority for the Clean Power Plan comes from the EPA’s Clean Air Act, along with the Supreme Court’s 2007 decision requiring the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant. A January 2017 poll by Reuters found that 39 percent of Americans would like to see the EPA "strengthened or expanded," 22 percent wanted it to "remain the same," and just 19 percent said they would like to see the…
