Comedians Ask Trump Employees if They’re Voting for Their Boss

Armed with a hidden camera, Noah Forman travelled to various Trump-owned properties in New York City to ask the employees if they would be voting for their boss.

The segment is part of the latest season of The Chris Gethard Show, a long-running NYC comedy institution known for its oddball stunts and pranks, which currently airs on Fusion.

“Congratulations, Noah,” Gethard said, “when Trump is the Supreme Leader, you’ll be the first one to have to deal with the repercussions.”

The New York primary is Tuesday, April 19.

Limbaugh Starts Show by Saying He Really Doesn’t Want to Opine on Lewandowski

limbaughAfter a brief comment yesterday, Rush Limbaugh started his radio show today by saying he really doesn’t want to share his opinion on the Corey LewandowskiMichelle Fields fracas.

Limbaugh went over the controversy regarding the video showing Lewandowski grabbing Fields before saying, “I have decided that going forward, I cannot share with you my opinion on this story… No matter what I say, I am convinced people cannot listen anymore.”

Yes, Limbaugh seems to be frustrated at how much he’s gotten criticized by anti-Donald Trump conservatives for seemingly carrying water for him instead of standing firm on conservative principles––something Limbaugh has admitted is not what’s fueling Trump’s campaign.

Limbaugh’s already gotten some blowback on this from people already critical of him. Per Leon Wolf at RedState:

Rush Limbaugh’s job is to Continue reading "Limbaugh Starts Show by Saying He Really Doesn’t Want to Opine on Lewandowski"

Trump Says Geneva Convention Is a ‘Problem,’ Makes Soldiers ‘Afraid to Fight’

trumpDonald Trump said that the Geneva Convention was a “problem,” because the “rules and regulations” made American soldiers “afraid to fight.”

“We can’t waterboard, but they can chop off heads,” Trump added. “I think we’ve got to make some changes, some adjustments.”

The GOP frontrunner made the remarks during a town hall Wednesday afternoon, and they echo truculent stances the candidate has taken before, specifically on torture and on expanding warfare beyond what is currently legally defined.

Hillary: Trump ‘Plays Coy with White Supremacists’

Hillary Clinton went on the attack against both Donald Trump and Ted Cruz during a campaign event at the Apollo Theater in Harlem today.

She said, “Just listen to Donald Trump. He plays coy with white supremacists. He says demeaning and degrading things about women. He wants to round up millions of Latino immigrants and kick them out… He wants to ban all Muslims from entering America.”

The white supremacists remark is, of course, a reference to Trump’s now-infamous refusal to disavow support from white supremacists after being pressed multiple times on the matter.

Clinton also went after Trump for talking “casually about using torture” and lumped him in with Ted Cruz to say they both “sound in over their heads.”

Gutfeld Gets Brutally Honest About Fox’s Network-Wide ‘Tension’ Over Trump

gutfeldDuring a discussion about the fractured GOP today, The Five‘s Greg Gutfeld brought up how the current GOP fight has been a source of tension not just on their show, but on Fox News as a whole.

“We as a show,” he said, “are facing internal strife, from a micro level to a macro level… Look at The Five. On any given day, we have tension over this nomination, over this candidate. You can look at our network as a whole.”

He said this is true of pretty much “every area where there is conservatism” these days, but pointed to specific “issues within a family of anchors” that has fractured the anti-Obama unity they once enjoyed.

Eric Bolling––who if not openly for Trump is clearly one of the most pro-Trump voices on the network––expressed some frustrations with the “if you like him, you’re an idiot” kind Continue reading "Gutfeld Gets Brutally Honest About Fox’s Network-Wide ‘Tension’ Over Trump"

Two Major Pro-Life Groups Release Statements Denouncing Trump’s Abortion ‘Punishment’ Remarks

donald-trumpTwo major pro-life organizations have spoken out today against Donald Trump‘s comment on “punishment” for abortion.

Trump said today that he believes that the women who get abortions should be punished if abortion is banned. Trump’s son backed his dad up and said it should be obvious that breaking the law should lead to punishment

But both March for Life and Susan B. Anthony List said in statements today that the concept of punishing women who get abortions is antithetical to their pro-life beliefs.

March for Life––a group that organizes major marches and rallies to speak out against abortion––released the following statement:

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, who just last night confirmed that he had “evolved” on the issue of abortion and is now pro-life, managed to upset both pro-lifers and abortion supporters with his comments that women who have abortions should face “some form of punishment” if abortion Continue reading "Two Major Pro-Life Groups Release Statements Denouncing Trump’s Abortion ‘Punishment’ Remarks"

Trump Flip-Flops on Abortion: Doctors Should Be Held Responsible, Not Women

trump2-1Donald Trump released a statement this afternoon completely flip-flopping on his earlier comments about abortion.

To review, when Chris Matthews repeatedly pressed Trump on abortion today, Trump said that “there has to be some form of punishment” specifically for the women who get abortions.

But after Trump got serious blowback from his campaign rivals and from pro-life groups, he issued this statement:

If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed – like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions.
