Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) tried to sound optimistic that the GOP would repeal and replace Obamacare after promising to do so on NBC's Meet The Press, but host Chuck Todd pressed him on it, saying, "It seems like you're selling something that can't be done realistically."
During Cotton's interview, Todd switched the topic to the repeal of Obamacare and after the beleaguered senator said the GOP must "get healthcare reform right here," but he offered only empty platitudes as a solution.
"Healthcare can be a very stressful thing.
“Welcome to the real world of responsibility. The fact is that, right now, the heat is on the Republicans. It’s on us… We now have two-thirds of the statehouses in America. We have the House. We have the Senate. We have the White House. It’s now on us to produce results.”
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer “is cracking down on leaks coming out of the West Wing, with increased security measures including phone checks for White House staffers overseen by White House attorneys,” Politico reports.
“The push to snuff out leaks to the press comes after a week in which President Trump expressed growing frustration with the media and the unauthorized sharing of information by individuals in his administration.”
New York Times: “Attacking the news media, which has an abysmal approval rating among Republican voters, is sound politics in the short term. But Mr. Trump’s fury is less strategic than heartfelt… “
“His anger is compounded by his belief that he should still be able to plant and steer stories.
Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out to Trump surrogate Corey Lewandowski on Sunday that attacking the media does not further the president's legislative agenda.
"The reason we invited you one in the first place, I want to talk about the Trump agenda with you," Wallace told Lewandowski during an interview on Fox News Sunday.
The father of a Navy SEAL killed during a mission that Donald Trump approved just a week into his administration blames the president for his son's death.
William Owens told The Miami Herald that he refused to meet with Trump when the remains of son, William “Ryan” Owens, were returned to Dover Air Force Base.
“I’m sorry, I don’t want to see him," Owens recalled explaining to the chaplain.
