’Yeah, Just Imagine…’: Fox’s Roginsky Hits Trump Admin Members For FBI Investigation Hypocrisy

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:

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"

Bravo’s Andy Cohen Delivers a Unique Burn to Donald Trump

imageedit_101_2426470313 Nobody knows how to insult someone like a Real Housewife and nobody knows the Real Housewives like Andy Cohen. The Bravo host, who wrangles and chaperones the cast of each Real Housewives franchise in a reunion at the end of every season, served up a reality television-worthy burn to Donald Trump after the president sent out some of his signature tweets this morning. See, ahead of the House Intelligence Committee hearing in which we learned that, yes, the FBI is definitely investigating Trump’s campaign for possible Russian ties, the president tweeted that news about Russia is all fake. Then, he tweeted that if anyone colluded with Russia, it was Hillary Clinton. Cohen wasn’t having it. He followed up this…

The Comey Hearing Exposed Abject Hypocrisy On All Sides

comey Of all of the corrosive elements of Donald Trump somehow becoming President of the United States, two of the worst are that he has completely desensitized our gauge of what it outrageous and has totally eliminated hypocrisy from the list of mortal political sins. Both of these scary realities were on full display at the much-hyped congressional hearing today that featured FBI Director James Comey. There were two major headlines from this highly-orchestrated television spectacle. The first was that Comey officially confirmed that there is an investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia. The second was that to the surprise of no one with a lick of common sense, there is no evidence to back up Trump’s absurd claim that he had been “wiretapped” by the Obama administration. In the remotely rational world of say maybe a year ago, these two stories would shake a new president Continue reading "The Comey Hearing Exposed Abject Hypocrisy On All Sides"

‘What Was Hillary Clinton’s Role?’: Spicer Wonders Why No Concern About Hillary/Russia Collusion

During today’s White House press briefing — which was occurring while the House Intelligence Committee was holding a hearing on Russian election interference — White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked about President Donald Trump’s tweet this morning seemingly accusing Hillary Clinton of having ties to Russia. “Is he under the impression that the Clinton campaign had inappropriate contact with Russia during the election?” One America News’ Trey Yingst asked. After answering Yingst’s first question about Trump slamming the DNC for not being forthright with the FBI regarding the hacks of their servers, Spicer then went onto the Clinton issue. “There is a whole second set of concerns here in terms of what was Hillary Clinton’s role,” the press sec exclaimed. “When you look at the Obama history — the Obama Administration and the Clinton — the Clinton’ involvement with Russia in terms Continue reading "‘What Was Hillary Clinton’s Role?’: Spicer Wonders Why No Concern About Hillary/Russia Collusion"

James Comey: Our Analysts Assessed the Russians Wanted Trump to Win the Election

At today’s House Intelligence hearing, FBI Director James Comey acknowledged that the FBI had assessed that the Russian government wanted Donald Trump to win the election. While questioning Comey on Russia’s preference between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) attempted to use his wife’s love of the Texas Tech Red Raiders as an analogy for rooting interests, stating that his wife automatically roots against anyone that plays her favorite team. This seemed to be a way to discern if Russian President Vladimir Putin merely hated Clinton or if he also liked Trump. “It’s based on more than that, but part of it is — we’re not going to get into the details of it — but part of is the logic,” Comey noted. “Whoever the Red Raiders are playing, you want the Red Raiders to win, by definition you want Continue reading "James Comey: Our Analysts Assessed the Russians Wanted Trump to Win the Election"

Hillary Clinton: ‘I Am Ready to Come Out of the Woods’

Hillary Clinton made some remarks at at St. Patrick’s Dinner last night held by the Society of Irish Women that referenced the deep divisions in the country. Clinton admitted, “I’m like a lot of my friends right now, I have a hard time watching the news, I’ll confess.” Referencing those chance encounters she’s had with people while taking walks recently, the former presidential candidate said, “I am ready to come out of the woods and to help shine a light on what is already happening around kitchen tables, at dinners like this, to help draw strength that will enable everybody to keep going.” Watch a clip above, via MSNBC.

‘I Will Forever Regret’: Donna Brazile Admits She Gave Debate Questions to Clinton Campaign

brazile Democratic analyst Donna Brazile seems to have confessed that she sent town hall debate topics to Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign while she worked for CNN. During the last stages of the 2016 election, e-mails released by WikiLeaks revealed that Brazile was passing questions along to members of Clinton’s inner circle. Brazile dodged questions about these actions for months, and CNN ended up cutting ties with her while she was serving as the interim head of the Democratic National Committee. On Friday, Brazile penned an essay for TIME where she talked about the importance of launching an investigation into the Trump administration’s apparent connections to Russia. As Brazile talked about how the Russians interfered with the election to President Trump‘s advantage, she reflected on how the e-mails about her were part of a strategy to destabilize the DNC. From TIME:
In October, a subsequent release of emails revealed Continue reading "‘I Will Forever Regret’: Donna Brazile Admits She Gave Debate Questions to Clinton Campaign"
