Fox News Anchor Bret Baier Condemns Trump: ‘Body Slamming’ Reporters is ‘Not OK’

On Friday afternoon, CNN conservative commentator S.E. Cupp criticized Fox News personalities for not coming down on President Donald Trump for his comments lauding Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) for his assault of a journalist. But not long after Cupp’s criticism, one of the network’s signature faces indulged her. Special Report anchor Bret Baier ripped the president on Twitter Friday for his complimentary remarks on Gianforte. “‘Body slamming’ or threatening journalists for asking questions and doing their job is not ok. And shouldn’t be,” Baier wrote. “That’s all.” Cupp expressed her approval of Baier’s Trump condemnation. But some critics thought Baier didn’t go far enough.

Chris Wallace: Trump Claim That Democrats Are Behind Caravan From Honduras is ‘Preposterous’

Chris Wallace is all over President Donald Trump for his suggestion that Democrats are behind a caravan of migrants from Honduras. Appearing on America’s Newsroom Friday, the Fox News Sunday anchor trashed the president’s suggestion that Democrats have anything to do with a caravan. “The idea that the Democrats were somehow behind this caravan coming from Honduras of these women and children is preposterous,” Wallace said. “And there’s been no evidence offered on that any more than there was evidence that the protestors on Capitol Hill during the [Brett] Kavanaugh hearings were paid protestors. These are people that are coming. There are obviously tough conditions both in terms of human rights and in terms of employment in Honduras. Doesn’t mean they have a right to come into the U.S. But this isn’t some Democratic plot.” At a rally in Montana Thursday, the president said, “As Continue reading "Chris Wallace: Trump Claim That Democrats Are Behind Caravan From Honduras is ‘Preposterous’"

The Guardian Blasts Trump For Lauding Assault On Their Reporter: ‘We Hope Decent People Will Denounce’

The Guardian is condemning President Donald Trump‘s remarks praising Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) — who assaulted one of their reporters in 2016. In a statement, Guardian US editor, John Mulholland blasted the president for his comments lauding Gianforte — who, in 2017, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault for bodyslamming Guardian correspondent Ben Jacobs. “The president of the United States tonight applauded the assault on an American journalist who works for the Guardian,” Mullholland said. “To celebrate an attack on a journalist who was simply doing his job is an attack on the first amendment by someone who has taken an oath to defend it. In the aftermath of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, it runs the risk of inviting other assaults on journalists both here and across the world where they often face far greater threats. We hope decent people will denounce these comments and that the president Continue reading "The Guardian Blasts Trump For Lauding Assault On Their Reporter: ‘We Hope Decent People Will Denounce’"

Rihanna Reportedly Turned Down Super Bowl Halftime Show Out of Support For Colin Kaepernick

Maroon 5 is slated to play the halftime show of Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3 in Atlanta. But according to one new report, the Adam Levine-fronted group wasn’t the NFL’s first choice. Before offering the gig to Maroon 5, the NFL approached Rihanna and asked her to take the headline slot on the Super Bowl halftime show, according to Us Weekly. Rihanna, however, declined. The reason? According to an US Weekly source, it’s because the 30-year-old singer “supports Colin Kaepernick.” “The NFL and CBS [which is televising the game] really wanted Rihanna to be next year’s performer in Atlanta,” the unnamed source told US Weekly. “They offered it to her, but she said no because of the kneeling controversy. She doesn’t agree with the NFL’s stance.” Kaepernick remains out of the NFL — with no team having signed him since he left the San Francisco 49ers Continue reading "Rihanna Reportedly Turned Down Super Bowl Halftime Show Out of Support For Colin Kaepernick"

On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) posted a video to Twitter. “BREAKING,” Gaetz wrote. “Footage in Honduras giving cash 2 women & children 2 join the caravan & storm the US border @ election time.” Then, the congressman floated a theory as to who might be funding these efforts. “Soros?” Gaetz wrote. “US-backed NGOs?

The congressman’s suggestion drew brutal mockery on Twitter:

Napolitano Says Trump Could Have FBI Kidnap Suspected Khashoggi Killers: ‘The President Has to Put This Fire Out’

Judge Andrew Napolitano believes the reported murder of Jamal Khashoggi is so disturbing that an unusual — though not unprecedented — measure on the part of President Donald Trump may be called for in order to get justice. Appearing on Fox & Friends Thursday, Napolitano referenced former President Ronald Reagan using the FBI to legally kidnap an individual suspected of murdering an American overseas in a similar case. Napolitano believes Trump would be within bounds to do the same thing with anyone involved in Khashoggi’s murder. “The murder of an American citizen, or a person lawfully resident in the United States, when the murder occurs in another country, it is a Federal crime here,” Napolitano said. “And in the Reagan administration when this happened, President Reagan dispatched agents — intelligence, as well as FBI — to kidnap an individual and bring him here. He said to the Judge, ‘Look, I Continue reading "Napolitano Says Trump Could Have FBI Kidnap Suspected Khashoggi Killers: ‘The President Has to Put This Fire Out’"
