It used to take a fancy degree and political connections to become a presidential speechwriter. In the era of President Donald Trump, all you need is a tweet. On a Thursday morning earlier this month, a Twitter user in Georgia with 500 followers responded to a video of Trump touting the economy and denouncing Democrats by tweeting the hashtag “#JobsNotMobs.” The next day, Scott Adams, the pro-Trump creator of the comic strip “Dilbert,” who has nearly 300,000 followers, endorsed this catchy framing in a tweet of his own. The hashtag took off from there, as Trump supporters on Reddit turned it into a visual internet meme, with images of autoworkers set against leftist antifa protesters. Even former House Speaker and Trump confidant Newt Gingrich tweeted in praise of the concept, calling it “a nice, clean formula.”Story Continued Below Within a week, Trump had begun incorporating a variation of the concept — “Democrats produce mobs, … [Read more...] about How an internet meme became a Trump campaign slogan
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is living in an alternate reality when it comes to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and other controversies swirling around him. He laments the threat of a "perjury trap" in explaining why he's hesitant to be interviewed by Mueller in the Russia probe, even as Trump's lawyers assert that Mueller had ruled out trying to indict a sitting president. Trump also makes the head-scratching claim that the crimes of his ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, are not criminal and falsely suggests that Paul Manafort, the president's former campaign chairman, should be viewed as innocent even after being found guilty on several bank fraud and other charges. The statements came in a week of distorted truth in which Trump also complained about a politician plagiarizing his slogan despite his history of doing the same, wrongly claimed his tax cuts are the biggest ever and defied data in declaring the U.S. is No. 1 in environmental quality. A look at his … [Read more...] about AP FACT CHECK: Trump’s bent reality: Cohen, clean air, taxes

It’s probably inoffensive enough to appeal to all wings of the fractured party. It fits pretty well in a hashtag. Advertisement But most important, Democrats believe, it’s catchier than “A Better Deal,’’ the party’s initial slogan that alluded to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal while simultaneously eluding simple definition.
