The Five Gets Heated Over NFL Anthem Decision: We Can’t ‘Come Here and Wear T-Shirts With a Bad Word’

The Five seemed to agree Wednesday that the NFL’s decision to fine players who kneel during the national anthem was a “not perfect, but good” move on the organization’s part, in Pete Hegseth‘s words. But Richard Fowler, the one liberal on the panel, felt differently, and the rest of the crew wasted no time in dismissing his points, to the extent that they were interrupting most of his sentences. “There were no players in this meeting when this decision was decided,” Fowler said. “The players’ association was left out of it. It was a bunch of owners who got in a room and made a decision without consulting people.” “The football is not football without the players,” he added. “If corporate makes a decision and we are the employees, we have to follow it,” Dana Perino shot back. “We are not in on every meeting.” “But Continue reading "The Five Gets Heated Over NFL Anthem Decision: We Can’t ‘Come Here and Wear T-Shirts With a Bad Word’"

Kushner Lawyer Says Jared Met With Mueller Team a Second Time: Been Completely Cooperative

During a slippery interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday, Jared Kushner‘s lawyer Abbe Lowell was asked about his client’s lengthy sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He provided only vague details of Kushner’s time with the Special Counsel. He did, however, make it clear he thinks his client has done nothing wrong and is not hiding anything. When asked about the questions that were asked in his client’s meeting with Mueller, Lowell called them “appropriate topics” but then admitted talk turned to allegations of Russia collusion, his contacts with foreign nationals, and obstruction during the 7-hour meeting. He would not go into further specifics, however, and later said: “I can’t really tell you question by question.” One thing Lowell was willing to talk about at greater length, though, was the fact Kushner was a model questionee. “I don’t know that anybody is cooperating more,” Kushner’s lawyer opined, Continue reading "Kushner Lawyer Says Jared Met With Mueller Team a Second Time: Been Completely Cooperative"

Sen. Jeff Flake Goes Off on Trump Again: The Presidency Has ‘Been Debased’

Senator Jeff Flake, one of President Trump‘s toughest Republican critics, unloaded on him again today in remarks to Harvard Law grads. CBS News reports that Flake unloaded not just on the Commander-in-Chief but also Congress for not doing enough to conduct proper oversight:
“Our presidency has been debased. By a figure who has a seemingly bottomless appetite for destruction and division. And only a passing familiarity with how the Constitution works,” Flake said, according to prepared remarks obtained by CBS News ahead of the speech. “And our Article I branch of government, the Congress (that’s me), is utterly supine in the face of the moral vandalism that flows from the White House daily.”
He called Congress “willing accomplices to this calamity” and at one point he even said, “We may have hit bottom.” Flake has made a few speeches on the Senate floor in the past Continue reading "Sen. Jeff Flake Goes Off on Trump Again: The Presidency Has ‘Been Debased’"

Jake Tapper Torches Trump For Pushing Conspiracies in Scathing Monologue: He Just ‘Makes Stuff Up’

Jake Tapper held nothing back during Wednesday’s The Lead as he went off on President Donald Trump for touting a conspiracy theory about a politically motivated FBI informant in his presidential campaign. “U.S. officials tell CNN that that source was not planted within the campaign,” Tapper began. “He wasn’t a campaign staffer as far as we know. There is obviously a lot we don’t know. But there’s no evidence as of now that this was done for political purposes as the president is alleging. We’re told that the FBI was trying to figure out just what the Russians were up to and whether they were getting help from any Americans.” “Now, while we await the investigation into this matter by journalists and by the Justice Department inspector general, it’s worth remembering while we’re sticking to the facts and telling you just what we know, President Trump apparently has Continue reading "Jake Tapper Torches Trump For Pushing Conspiracies in Scathing Monologue: He Just ‘Makes Stuff Up’"

Elon Musk Unloads on Media in Tweetstorm, Cites Trump: ‘Why Do You Think He Got Elected?’

Scion of the future and Mars enthusiast Elon Musk is having a field day on Twitter, today, in what is an at least somewhat surprising tirade against the liberal media. The Tesla CEO (recent Soros cash beneficiaries, by the way) on Wednesday unleashed hell against the media, and floated an idea for correcting them, too. It all started when attacked he “big media” in a quote retweet featuring an article about Tesla, Inc. Which he followed with immediate foreshadowing: Then came pushback:

CNN Interview With the 30-Year-Old ‘Millennial’ Evicted from Parents’ House is a Cringeworthy Train Wreck

A 30-year-old, unemployed man and self-described conservative who was evicted by his parents spoke out on CNN on Wednesday and defended why he did not respond to his parents repeated requests that he did not vacate their Camillus, New York home. In response, during the trainwreck interview, host Brooke Baldwin asked him point blank why he did not get a job. Michael Rotondo, who seemed scattered throughout the awkward and sometimes surreal interview, was first asked if he wanted to move out of his parents’ home. He responded by saying he didn’t want to live there anymore because “it’s very tense, it’s very awkward.” Rotundo, whose eviction story went viral earlier today, then explained that the first time his parents asked him to leave it was winter and that he needed reasonable time to find a new place to live. “I don’t like living here but I need Continue reading "CNN Interview With the 30-Year-Old ‘Millennial’ Evicted from Parents’ House is a Cringeworthy Train Wreck"
