Jeff Sessions Laughs, Joins Chants of ‘Lock Her Up’ During Speech to High Schoolers

Attorney General Jeff Sessions laughed as he joined chants of “lock her up” during a speech to a gathering of high schoolers on Tuesday in Washington D.C. Sessions spoke to Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit, lamenting how freedom of speech and thought are under attack on college campuses. At one point, the room brought back a Trump rally classic and started chanting for Hillary Clinton‘s imprisonment. “Look her up,” Sessions repeated to the crowd — chuckling awkwardly as he did so. That moment from Sessions is a bit of a contrast from yesterday’s address by Nikki Haley. The U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations warned the conference on Monday that political debates aren’t won just by saying something to “own the libs.” Watch above, via CNN.

Scarborough Accuses Fox Hosts of Retreating to ‘Clinton Email Stories’ When There’s ‘Damning News’ About Trump

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough made an intriguing point on Tuesday about “certain hosts on Fox News”: when President Donald Trump‘s having a bad week, their focus is curiously elsewhere. Morning Joe was covering the stink bomb White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tossed out on Monday when she declared the president was weighing revoking the security clearances of six former Obama officials who have been critical of Trump. “There are certain hosts on Fox News, that when there is damning news about Donald Trump, something that should really concern Americans now, they’ll do Hillary Clinton email stories,” Scarborough said. “This whole smokescreen yesterday about taking security clearances away from former CIA directors and other intel giants, that came off of a Fox News segment with Rand Paul,” he continued, referring to Tucker Carlson‘s interview with the Kentucky senator. Scarborough said Paul “shamelessly” said he was going to the Continue reading "Scarborough Accuses Fox Hosts of Retreating to ‘Clinton Email Stories’ When There’s ‘Damning News’ About Trump"

Hillary Clinton Slams Trump at OZY Fest: Why Hasn’t He ‘Spoken Up for our Country’

On Saturday, Hillary Clinton took to the stage of New York City’s OZY Fest to talk, among other things, about President Donald Trump and his meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin. In a clip played by CNN, Clinton takes a stab at Trump for not taking a strong stand against Russian election meddling. “The great mystery is why this president has not spoken up for our country, and we saw this most clearly in this recent meeting with Putin,” she said. She added that “we still do not know” what happened in the room when the two met. According to The Hill, Clinton also called the whole thing “disturbing.” “So this idea that somehow we are not sure where our own president stands is deeply disturbing,” Clinton said. “And the best way to deal with that is to vote in November.” OZY Fest describes itself as a Continue reading "Hillary Clinton Slams Trump at OZY Fest: Why Hasn’t He ‘Spoken Up for our Country’"

Scarborough Drives the Knife On SCOTUS Nomination: Hillary Blew It, This Is What Happens

On Morning Joe on Thursday, Joe Scarborough wasted no time in pointing out to democrat voters in crisis over the news that President Donald Trump will have a second Supreme Court appointment that elections have consequences. He even made a special point of addressing “blue check mark” users on Twitter. “Yesterday there were several people who were shocked at this news, and quite a few people actually with blue check marks by their name, saying this was the bleakest moment in their lives and they didn’t know how they were going to move forward with it,” said Scarborough. He said that although they criticize Trump regularly for, among other things, violating “constitutional norms,” in this case Trump is simply fulfilling an obligation of the office. The office, Joe reminds, that Hillary Clinton failed to win. “When you elect presidents, this is what happens. And when Hillary Clinton didn’t visit Wisconsin Continue reading "Scarborough Drives the Knife On SCOTUS Nomination: Hillary Blew It, This Is What Happens"

Kanye West Says He Felt Pressure to Support Clinton: Seemed Like I Was ‘Castrated’ For Being Pro-Trump

Ever since a series of Tweets supporting President Donald Trump in late April, followed by a meltdown on TMZ in early May, Kanye West has largely remained out of the spotlight. On Monday, however, The New York Times published a lengthy interview with the hip hop star in which he reflected on some of those pro-Trump tweets and opened up a bit on politics. West told the Times that he felt immense pressure to support Hillary Clinton. “Man, I had my [expletive] [expletive] castrated,” West told the Times. “You have to like Hillary. That’s got to be your choice.” West went on to make the claim that he was speaking out in favor of the president on behalf of others who want to do the same, but are afraid. “I felt that I knew people who voted for Trump that were celebrities that were scared to say that Continue reading "Kanye West Says He Felt Pressure to Support Clinton: Seemed Like I Was ‘Castrated’ For Being Pro-Trump"

Roger Stone: I Think Peter Strzok Was Behind Russian Operative Offering Hillary Dirt for $2 Million

Fox News’ Sean Hannity had a conversation Wednesday night on his show with former Trump aide Roger Stone about his new claim that he met with a Russian operative who wanted the Trump campaign to pay for dirt on Hillary Clinton. And boy, did Roger have a kicker. “[Former Trump adviser] Michael Caputo contacted me and said he had been contacted by a man using an alias, as it turns out, Henry Greenberg, who had information that he said would be of great value to the Trump campaign. I met with him – ” “This is important,” Hannity interjected. “Every Congressman would take that call if they got that call.” “Well, and in a presidential year,” Stone added, explaining that he was also writing a book, starring in a Netflix documentary, appearing once a day on InfoWars, and fighting “a terrific war against net censorship.” Okay, okay, Roger, Continue reading "Roger Stone: I Think Peter Strzok Was Behind Russian Operative Offering Hillary Dirt for $2 Million"
