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"
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…
What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians? Also, is it true that the DNC would not let the FBI in to look?— Donald J. Continue reading "Bravo’s Andy Cohen Delivers a Unique Burn to Donald Trump"
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"
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"
