'Resistance' Builds As Hillary Unveils "Onward Together" Group To Help People Run For Office

'Resistance' Builds As Hillary Unveils "Onward Together" Group To Help People Run For Office

After proclaiming herself "an activist citizen and part of the resistance," and by definition - absolutely not part of the establishment? - Hillary Clinton has unveiled her latest fund-raising vehicle - Onward Together to "champion the vision that earned 66 million votes in the last election."

The group, “Onward Together,” will work “to build a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organize and run for office," according to a statement from Hillary Clinton.

As a reminder, in early May, Clinton identified herself as part of “the resistance.”

 
 

“I can’t be anything other than who I am,” Clinton said at a Women for Women International event.

Ann Coulter Turns On Trump: "This Is The Great Negotiator?"

Ann Coulter Turns On Trump: "This Is The Great Negotiator?"

Ann Coulter was a Trump believer from the beginning.  As far back at June 2015 she predicted a Trump victory on the Bill Maher show and was openly mocked by the audience and other panelists.  But, turns out she was quite right.

 

Coulter even went on to publish a book entitled "In Trump We Trust" which she hailed as the story of a "one-man wrecking ball against our dysfunctional and corrupt establishment." 

But, after a series of flip-flops on everything from the timing of the border wall to the 'obsolescence' of NATO, Coulter is growing a little weary of waiting on Trump to deliver on campaign promises.

 

Sitting down for an interview with the Daily Caller, Coulter said she's "not very happy with what has happened so far" and asked "is the great negotiator?"

 
 

Uhhhh. I’m not very happy with what has happened so far. I guess we have to try to push him to keep his promises. But this isn’t North Korea, and if he doesn’t keep his promises I’m out. This is why we voted for him. I think everyone who voted for him knew his personality was grotesque, it was the issues.

"He's Angry At Everyone": Trump Said To Plan "Huge Reboot" - Priebus, Bannon, Spicer Could May Be Fired

"He's Angry At Everyone": Trump Said To Plan "Huge Reboot" - Priebus, Bannon, Spicer Could May Be Fired

In a report by Axios this morning, citing White House sources, President Trump is reportedly considering a "huge reboot" of his core staff and cabinet members that could lead to the termination of everyone from Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon, to counsel Don McGahn and press secretary Sean Spicer: "He's frustrated, and angry at everyone."

According to Axios, the conversations intensified this week as the fallout from the Comey firing "pushed the White House from chaos into crisis" and notes that Trump's friends are telling him that many of his top aides don't know how to work with him, pointing out that "his approval ratings aren't rising, but the leaks are." As a result the advice he's getting is to "go big — that he has nothing to lose," the confidant said. "The question now is how big and how bold. I'm not sure he knows the answer to that yet."

Additionally, Trump reportedly feels he has been "ill-served" by several of his Cabinet officials.

 
 

Trump has two complaints about Cabinet members: Either they're tooting their own horns too much, or they're insufficiently effusive in praising him as a brilliant diplomat, etc. Among the cross-currents:

Under threat are some of his key economic and domestic policy advisors, including:

Trump To Dump Spicer? Here's Who May Replace Him

Trump To Dump Spicer? Here's Who May Replace Him

After this week's SNAFU of conflicting reports of the timeline surrounding Comey's dismissal, The New York Times reports 'anonymous' West Wing officials have stated that President Trump is considering the most far-reaching shake-up of his first term after being dissatisfied with several top aides, especially Spicer.

The Times reported that Trump has also grown "increasingly
dissatisfied" with the performance of his chief of staff Reince Priebus
and communications director Michael Dubke.

As The Hill notes, Trump has discussed Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle as a possible press secretary, according to the Times, which noted that the president has also spent several hours with Spicer this week praising his TV "ratings" during briefings.

 

Guilfoyle is a former assistant district attorney in San Francisco.
She was once married to former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, a
Democrat. She is said to have a friendly relationship with Trump's oldest daughter, Ivanka, and Ivanka's husband, publisher Jared Kushner.
