One of Fox News’s most outspoken Democrats used her online segment to go after some of Donald Trump‘s top officials today. Julie Roginsky has been honored here on Mediaite for the skillful way she dismisses Twitter trolls, but did you know she has a video segment online dedicated to it, too? It’s called Clapback and in it, she reviews some of her greatest Twitter hits, then opines on the topics of the day. Here are the tweets she featured when discussing yesterday’s big revelation that the Trump campaign has been under FBI investigation for possible ties to Russia:
Obviously, Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are two of Trump’s most outspoken spokespeople and team members.
“Hmm…well, I refer you to Jim Comey‘s testimony from yesterday,” Roginsky said in response to Conway’s old tweet. To Huckabee’s, she said, “Yeah, just imagine, Sarah Continue reading "’Yeah, Just Imagine…’: Fox’s Roginsky Hits Trump Admin Members For FBI Investigation Hypocrisy"
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News’ senior judicial analyst, has been pulled from the network, according to a new report out tonight. The L.A. Times reports that Napolitano has been “taken off the air” after comments he made last week about President Trump‘s wiretapping claims became a major issue. Napolitano said that according to sources, the Obama administration went to British intelligence agency GCHQ to surveil Trump. Sean Spicer cited it at a press briefing, and the end result here was that GCHQ slammed the claim in a statement and Fox anchors had to state for the record that the news division could not corroborate those claims. Per the L.A. Times:
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future.CNN’s Brian Stelter tweeted Continue reading "Report: Fox News Pulls Judge Andrew Napolitano Following Trump Wiretap Comments"
Over the past few months, Fox News has witnessed unprecedented movement in its on-air ranks. Tucker Carlson took the ball and ran (with his program outdrawing his predecessors), while Greta Van Susteren — and later Megyn Kelly — found greener pastures elsewhere (albeit for very different reasons). In the Roger Ailes era, major changes at the network were rare, leaving little real chance for movement. So, with this newfound opportunity gold rush at (or from) Fox, who is best poised to make the next meteoric rise? My cable news Ouija board is spelling out Eric Bolling. (Insert eye roll here.) Yes, the conservative pundit has been toiling in only somewhat prominent spots on the Fox farm for a long time, but Bolling’s extensive — and often controversial — track record put him in the perfect spot to become the new Fox News darling. Back in 2006, CNBC was Continue reading "My Pick For The Next Fox News Breakout Star"
On Sunday Morning Futures, today, host Maria Bartiromo teased an upcoming interview with Eric Trump. With his father and sister now in the White House, management of the Trump organization has fallen to Eric and his older brother Donald Trump Jr. During the interview, Bartiromo asked about the recent tax leak that showed President Trump paid an effective 25% tax rate for the year 2005. The younger Trump didn’t mince words. “It’s really sad that we’re in an environment where tax returns are leaked by whoever it may be,” he said. “Just think about how dangerous that is, how third world, that is, of a practice” “When personal information is being put out by people for political agendas, as a civilian it’s actually scary to me,” he continued. Trump’s tough talk came at the very end. The tease — which lasted a ten Continue reading "Eric Trump: Leaking Dad’s Taxes ‘Sad,’ ‘Scary,’ like ‘Third World’ Country"
