PUTTING ON A BOLD FACE. Still emotionally bruised from the shock of learning her boyfriend Rob Porter quit his job as White House aide after two ex-wives accused him of physical abuse, Hope Hicks, 29-year-old White House communications director, puts a bold foot forward, well two actually, and heads to work Monday from her Washington apartment.
The Donald and Melania head out for dinner at the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Saturday night after another stormy week in which Trump, clearly to Melania’s chagrin, sided with two male staffers who resigned after being accused by their ex-wives of spousal abuse.
Not to mention the lingering alleged fling with Stormy Daniels.
When will domestic bliss and tranquility return to the White House?
Liberal professor’s remark about President Trump has been deleted — but it’s too late.
A professor at Boston’s Northeastern University was being recorded during a public lecture when he said he wouldn’t mind seeing President Trump dead.
“Sometimes I want to just see him impeached. Other times, quite honestly — I hope there are no FBI agents here — I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead,” Barry Bluestone, a professor of political economy, said during a public event labelled ‘The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization.’
The university is trying to distance itself from what he said. That’s not enough. He should be fired.
Bluestone’s remarks were recorded in a YouTube video uploaded by the school on Monday, but it has since been deleted, according to several news sources.

But what he said cannot be unsaid.
Uranium One deal still red hot
An FBI informant said to be dying of brain cancer and leukemia has testified that Moscow funneled millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton’s “charitable efforts” to bribe Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to go soft on U.S.-Russia relations.
Testimony by Douglas Campbell exposes that the real “collusion” with Russia was between former President Obama’s White House and the Kremlin, and ties Hillary Clinton to a bribery scheme arranged by Russian government leaders, The Hill website reports.
In a written statement to three congressional committees, Campbell said he is speaking out now because he was never reimbursed for “hundreds of thousands of dollars” of his own money he used to make bribe payments ordered by the FBI.
Campbell was also interviewed on Wednesday for several hours by bipartisan members of the committees: the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence, and House Oversight.
The main interest in Campbell’s story is on the Obama administration’s approval of the ‘Uranium One deal,’ which gave the Russian mining company Rosatom control of 20 percent of America’s uranium mines — a deal that was also okayed by Clinton’s State Department.
