Fox News aired the entirety of President Donald Trump‘s rally in Duluth, Minnesota on Wednesday night, losing some 45 minutes of precious primetime to the event. But that didn’t bother Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host whose program fell victim to Trump’s scheduling. Carlson stepped in at the end of the rally, and praised one moment in particular: when Trump said he is more elite than “the elites” because he has a more expensive apartment and is richer than they are. “Taking on the very idea of the elites in one aside that was, I thought amusing and probably correct,” Carlson noted. Wednesday night’s rally was textbook Trump: he boasted of the crowd size for a lot of it, and spent the rest of his time calling the media “fake news,” bashing Democrats for wanting people from the Middle East to “pour in” to the U.S., Continue reading "Tucker Carlson and Radio Host Tammy Bruce Gush Over Trump Rally: ‘Incredible Crowd’"
President Donald Trump went on a tear against Democrats at his rally in Minnesota Wednesday night regarding his topic du jour — immigration — and made sure to include a painfully xenophobic quip about the Middle East. “So the Democrats want open borders,” Trump told his rowdy crowd at a Duluth, MN stadium. “Let everybody come in. Let everybody pour in, we don’t care, them come in from the Middle East, let them come in from all over the place.” The crowd booed. “We don’t care, we’re not going to let it happen,” Trump said. He then commented on the executive order he signed today the put an end to his administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that separated migrant children from their parents at the southern border. “We will keep families together but the border is going to be just as tough as it has been,” he said. Later in Continue reading "Trump: Democrats Want Immigrants to ‘Pour In’ From the Middle East"
President Donald Trump declared that House Republicans “applauded and laughed loudly” when he mocked their colleague, Rep. Mark Sanford, in a meeting on Tuesday. It was reported on Tuesday night that the president mocked Sanford, a Republican from South Carolina, for losing the primary race to a candidate Trump endorsed at the last minute. “Is Mark Sanford here? I just want to congratulate him on running a great race,” Trump said, according to Politico’s Jake Sherman, one of the reporters to tweet about the remark. Per Sherman, Trump then called the Congressman “nasty,” prompting boos from lawmakers in the room. Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to claim that he was actually “applauded” for mocking Sanford’s loss. “Had a great meeting with the House GOP last night at the Capitol,” he wrote. “They applauded and laughed loudly when I mentioned my experience with Mark Sanford.” “I have Continue reading "Trump: House Republicans ‘Applauded and Laughed Loudly’ When I Mocked Colleague Rep.

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) compared the FBI agents who worked on the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia to members of the Ku Klux Klan sitting on a jury for the trial of an innocent black man. Appearing on Fox News, the New York Republican emphasized Inspector General Michael Horowitz‘s conclusions about bias at the FBI, but dismissed his determination that bias did not taint the results of the Clinton and Trump probes. “I think the fact he was able to repeat just how many abuses there were, how much bias there was,” King said. “Now whether or not he concludes that the overall findings were biased: When you have almost everyone involved in the process being biased, to me it would be like if you were twelve Klansmen on a jury and a African-American was convicted, and the evidence wasn’t there.” “Maybe you can’t find Continue reading "Rep. Peter King Compares Mueller Investigators to ‘Twelve Klansmen’ Trying Innocent Black Man"
Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano dropped the W-bomb on Fox Business Network Wednesday morning, saying the controversy surrounding FBI bias “ranks with” the Watergate scandal… and might even be “bigger.” Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo first took issue with Inspector General Michael Horowitz‘s conclusion that the political bias found at the FBI did not determine the outcome of investigations. She pointed out that Peter Strzok, one of the lead investigators on the Clinton and Trump probes, texted his lover that they would “stop” Trump. Napolitano praised special counsel Robert Mueller for firing Strzok from his team after finding out about his texts. Bartiromo then asked the former judge turned analyst if he would “compare this to Watergate.” “Yes I think this ranks with Watergate,” Napolitano replied. “And the more we learn, it may get bigger.” He added that Strzok “must be a character” given Continue reading "Andrew Napolitano: FBI’s Handling of Clinton and Trump Probes ‘Ranks With Watergate’"
A group of rowdy protestors heckled Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a Mexican restaurant on Tuesday evening, chanting “Shame!” and “Abolish ICE” at the official seen by many as the face of migrant separation. It came down to the Homeland Security spokesman, Tyler Q. Houlton, to put a spin on the imbroglio that might end the bad headlines, and lordy did he deliver. “While having a work dinner tonight, the Secretary and her staff heard from a small group of protestors who share her concern with our current immigration laws that have created a crisis on our southern border,” Houlton wrote in a tweet.
Sparks flew on the set of Hannity Tuesday night as the Fox News host sparred with Geraldo Rivera over the separation of migrant families at the southern border. Sean Hannity first said Democrats were “playing politics” by not taking an immigration deal from President Donald Trump, telling both sides of the aisle to “fix the law and do your jobs.” “Politics aside,” Rivera replied, “This is cruelty as policy. This is an obscenity. This is the government of the United States and the president that we both love, advocating a system by which young children are torn from their mothers.” “Geraldo,” Hannity tried to interject. “History will judge us, Sean,” Rivera continued. “We must take a stand on something. Here is where we draw the line.” Hannity replied that he doesn’t want any family separation, and maintained that if Congress works with the president “it can Continue reading "Geraldo Rivera and Hannity Erupt Over Border Policy: ‘When Did We Become the Party of Child Abuse?!’"
