IPSOS POLL. 43 percent of Republicans say Trump should have authority to shut news outlets “engaged in bad behavior.” BEAST: “The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members. They also illustrate the extent to which Trump’s anti-press drumbeat has shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering his administration.”
MIKE PENCE. Unearthed columns reveal Mike Pence thought lying about adultery was grounds for impeaching the president: “Pence made the argument in two columns in the late 1990s, where he wrote that then-President Bill Clinton’s admission of an affair with a White House intern and prior lies to the public about the matter, possibly under oath, meant Clinton should be removed from office.”
DAVID TENNANT. Dr. Who actor slams Trump on behalf of the Scottish people: “When he was over here and he was talking about England and he was saying ‘I’m going out to Scotland for my golf course in Scotland cause people in London are protesting but obviously [in] Scotland they really like me.’ Can I say on behalf of the Scottish nation, we f—ing don’t?”
