Gorka: 'A president is never measured by his pressers'

Awash with adjectives and outrage, much of the news media was in full cry Monday after the summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But such is the current media marketplace when political agenda, journalism, spectacle and the need for ratings and readership collide. Published July 16, 2018

But the GOP has a new wrinkle to worry about.

America's growing fatigue with Democratic outrage

Yes, it is very understandable that Democrats would be sad, mad and uneasy following the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. That defeat was almost two years ago. But the decibel level of Democratic dismay only seems to have grown louder in 20 months.

He still prays for the president

The whirlwind of media and politics continues to spin toward uncertain destinations. But one thing appears to remain steady. There are many who continue to pray for President Trump, and the practice goes back a-ways. On the night before Americans went to the polls in the 2016 presidential election, the Rev. Franklin Graham called for the faithful to pray for America, and then go vote. He had a clear comment following Mr. Trump's victory. Published July 9, 2018
