Hours before Russia briefing, PEOTUS gloats over Schwarzenegger’s low ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ ratings
Donald Trump will be briefed Friday on what U.S. intelligence has concluded was Russian interference in the election that made him president-elect. But he began his day, as he often does, by tweeting what amounts to a one-way briefing. Among Friday’s topics: “Celebrity Apprentice” ratings.
President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman, Josh Earnest, spent much of Thursday answering reporters’ questions that stemmed from a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing with U.S. intelligence officials about their conclusion that the Russian government was directly involved in the hacking. Earnest fielded questions about whether the Obama administration's response was strong enough and whether what the Kremlin did should be considered an act of war.
