Wife of White House Comms Chief Bill Shine Jokes at Book Party: ‘I’m the Racist and He’s the Rapist!’

Darla Shine, the wife of White House communications chief Bill Shine, introduced herself and her husband as “the racist” and “the rapist” — respectively — while at Seb Gorka’s book party on Tuesday night. She was referencing Mediaite’s July story on the racially charged remarks Darla made before her husband accepted a presidential appointment. “That’s off the record,” Bill Shine said after his wife’s “rapist” and “racist” comment, per the Washington Post. However, Darla opted to double-down, saying, “I’m always on the record.” The report states that a young man attending Gorka’s book party defended Darla as she recounted the news coverage of her comments. “They twisted your word [and] made it seem something different,” the person said, which Darla agreed with by shouting “yes!” Darla faced heavy criticism shortly after her husband accepted the White House communications position, as it was revealed that she had Continue reading "Wife of White House Comms Chief Bill Shine Jokes at Book Party: ‘I’m the Racist and He’s the Rapist!’"

First-son Eric Trump warned Fox News viewers today that Democrats will “investigate everybody” if they flip the House in the upcoming midterms. “If the House flips, word is that they’re gonna’ start investigating the Trump Organization, let alone the president and everybody around him,” host Brian Kilmeade said on Fox & Friends this morning. “How do you feel about that?” “You watch the level of harassment.

CNN’s Don Lemon: Trump Keeps Insulting People’s Looks But ‘Does He Own a Mirror?’

CNN host Don Lemon pushed back on President Donald Trump insulting the looks of critics by asking if he owns a mirror, since he is “no prize” himself. “This is built into the sauce for Donald Trump, and I think people know that, and we have to keep pointing it out, it’s awful,” Lemon said tonight, just hours after Trump insulted Stormy Daniels by calling her “horseface.” “Here’s a bigger question, I don’t usually like to talk about people’s looks — does he own a mirror? He keeps talking about people gaining weight and how people look,” Lemon added. “Does he own a mirror that doesn’t have vaseline over it or a cloth? I mean, all he has to do is look in the mirror.” “Donald Trump is no prize, and if I were him — not that I’m one either — I would keep my thoughts about other Continue reading "CNN’s Don Lemon: Trump Keeps Insulting People’s Looks But ‘Does He Own a Mirror?’"

Sen. Ben Sasse Challenges Sean Hannity to ‘Debate the Role of the Media’ in Political Division

The beef between Senator Ben Sasse and Fox News host Sean Hannity escalated tonight after the pro-Trump pundit accused Republican lawmaker of going “BERSERK” against him. “If you write a book about the outrage merchants that are dividing America and you fail to mention Sean Hannity because he’s in your party, you aren’t being honest,” Sasse tweeted in response to Hannity’s claim. “I invite you to come out from behind the safety of your cable news desk and join me at a neutral forum to debate the role of the media—Left and Right—in dividing us. Honest conversation isn’t where the quick-hit $ and ratings are — but it’d be good for America.”
