    A game of cat and mouse has begun in the White House after US Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and over a dozen other Trump administration officials have denied taking part in the bombshell op-ed published Wednesday in the New York Times.

    TREASON?

    Not long after social media was overcome with "#OpEdGUESS" and other related hashtags, US President Donald Trump took time to denounce not only the anonymous author and the "Failing New York Times," but also other left-leaning outlets covering the alleged insider dirt.

    According to the US president's Wednesday address, following his two terms in office (he assumes he'll win again in 2020), "the New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business… because there'll be nothing to write and nothing of interest."

    As if Trump asserting news would cease to exist in a few years weren't cringeworthy enough, a slew of Trump officials and even FLOTUS Melania Trump herself decided to turn the administration into a game of Clue by each denying (in some way or another) accusations of authoring the op-ed.

      Twitter Fire

      Tensions between Tehran and Washington reached new levels on Tuesday after Iran’s president criticized his US counterpart’s administration, asserting the White House is “full of lies” and “mentally retarded” for its sanctions. US President Donald Trump, of course, did not let this comment go without a Twitter response.

      Segregationist Sympathizer

      On Wednesday, former US Vice President Joe Biden doubled down and defended his romanticization of time spent working with senators who opposed efforts toward desegregation, saying it was wrong of his fellow Democrats to criticize his comments because there’s “not a racist bone” in his body.

      All ICE, No Human Rights

      In a bold Monday night tweet, US President Donald Trump proudly announced the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) would begin removing “millions” of “illegal aliens” from US cities. Through what means? That’s anyone’s guess.
