They have one every year, I do not know why.
Bush started them in 2001, he said the White House belongs to people of all faiths.

That date difference made their "bombshell" story into a completely non-sensical hysteric. Just another illustration of its confirmation bias and another huge hit to its credibility.

As hateable as Trump is for many people, who can deny he has taken on the Republicans, the Democrats, the UN and MSM head-on and is beating them? I suppose he is quite frightening for those inside the bubble.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

It's got nothing to do with him anymore. It's the USA that is becoming a hate object. And rightly so!!! The only time that USA did anything good was getting rid of Hitler! Since then they have been destoying countries. Look at North Korea. Look at Vietnam. Look at Cambodia. Look at Middle East. Look at Jerusalem. The list goes on........

I have to wonder if these are not countries which are intent on destroying themselves. Are you sure it is not brought on by the governments of those countries? It also sounds like a one sided exaggeration, as the US has also brokered many peace deals and kept many aggressors at bay.

I think many Americans would agree with you that our government at times are run by the most inept and corrupt. I can assure you though that Americans themselves are not intent on wreaking havok on the world's.

Pity they were't any good at destroying them.

Meanwhile, the Aussies are pretty good at stockpiling refugees on various islands.

More MSM fake news
Fox News issues correction on Roy Moore accuser yearbook ‘forgery’ headline
Just another illustration of its confirmation bias and another huge hit to its credibility.

Yes, seriously!

How many religions are represented by the US residents? A religious feast for each at the White House? If not, why not?

But my surprise was more about the mixture of religion and politics here.

Yet, I googled, and indeed it does seem to cover more than just two religions.

Hindi
Muslim not with Trump though, surprise, surprise

The Muslims and the press are in the same Trump pot then

Okay, fair enough .... mixture of politics and religion is normal in the US. Sorry for wondering
