Seth Meyers spent time on his show Wednesday night ripping President Donald Trump‘s lies and at one point even getting in a jab at Fox and Friends Steve Doocy. Speaking during “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers started by saying that Trump’s true political skill lies in the fact he has no shame. “Trump’s only political skill is his total and complete lack of shame,” Meyers said. “His malignant narcissism allows him to confidently and brazenly lie in the way that most other politicians would be too embarrassed to even try.” He then turned to Trump signing the executive order, stressing that Trump does not deserve credit when he created the problem himself. “You don’t get credit for solving a problem when you yourself created the problem,” Meyers continued on. “You can’t eat half a cheeseburger, put it down and say you’re a vegan—especially when everyone knows you’re just Continue reading "Seth Meyers Skewers Trump For Border Policy Lies, Fits in Roasting of Steve Doocy"
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"
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes grilled Rep. Dr. Roger Marshall (R-KS) on a series of outlandish claims he made about immigrant children being separated from their families at the border. “The president’s intention was never to hurt families,” Marshall insisted about the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy. “His intention was national security and border security.” That did not satisfy Hayes in the least. “We have interviewed on this network, we’ve interviewed mothers from Guatemala and Honduras whose sons have been killed by drug cartels who have fled 1000 miles north risking everything. Are they a national security threat?” he asked. “I think that you have to share the rest of the story,” Marshall replied. “The number of families that are posing as families has quadrupled trying to cross our borders. So you’re having people who are doing human trafficking, terrorists, and cartel members.” “Where is the evidence of that?” Continue reading "GOP Rep Claims 5-Year-Olds Helping Cartels Smuggle Drugs in Off The Rails MSNBC Hit"
President Donald Trump‘s rally in Duluth, MN touched on all the greatest hits, including, of course, the “fake news media.” After touting the creation of “3.4 million new jobs” since Election Day, Trump turned his attention to bashing the press. “And I have said before, if I would have said that to you during the campaign, those very dishonest people back there, the fake news, very dishonest. They would have said, he is exaggerating.” At this point, the crowd chanted “CNN Sucks!” for several seconds, and Trump let it die down before saying again: “These are very dishonest people.” The president’s constant condemnation of the media is unacceptable — and leads to unfortunate, even dangerous scenes such as this. A free press needs to be cherished by our government, and when the press is the enemy of the state, the country becomes a dictatorship.

Fox’s Laura Ingraham was among the many people who this week said dumb, clumsy, or rotten things about the family separation at the U.S.-Mexico border, but on Tuesday night, before Trump announced his executive action, Ingraham ran an extensive segment from on-location at the border south of San Diego. The lengthy opening segment to The Ingraham Angle on Tuesday was, in contrast to the icy detachment of White House adviser Stephen Miller, very cognizant of the well-being of the children who have become the responsibility of the American taxpayer. In keeping with her “summer camp” remark, she was highly focused on the quality of care for the kids at the known facilities, as opposed to the harm of being apart from their parents or the horror of American government officials taking them away. Nevertheless, at least some care was taken with the topic. The situation was “not Continue reading "Laura Ingraham at Border Ahead of Trump Executive Order: Stop Playing Politics and Act"
The organizer behind last year’s deadly Charlottesville rally has just received approval to hold a rally across from the White House on Aug. 12. Jason Kessler, a white supremacist and one of the primary organizers behind the Unite the Right rally, applied for a permit for a “white civil rights” rally to be held on Lafayette Square. The purpose of the gathering, according to The Washington Post, is to protest “civil rights abuse in Charlottesville.” While the request has been approved, a permit has not yet been issued. Kessler had first tried to apply for a rally permit in Charlottesville for the same day, but that permit was denied. Last year’s Charlottesville rally erupted into violent brawls and took the life of Heather Heyer, an anti-racism activist and paralegal who died after a car drove through a group of counterprotesters. She was 32. A total of Continue reading "‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Gets Approval for ‘White Civil Rights’ Rally in DC on Anniversary of Charlottesville"
If you can’t beat them, throw delicious chewy candy at ’em! According to CBS Senior Global Affairs Contributor Ian Bremmer, President Donald Trump, who was particularly petulant throughout the G7 Summit, threw a couple of Starburst candies on the table in front of German Chancellor Angela Merkel after begrudgingly agreeing to sign a communiqué committing to a “rules-based international order.” “The advisers had been working on it until 3:00 that morning, straight through the night, including [Economic Advisor Larry] Kudlow from the United States, and Trump was sitting there with his arms crossed, clearly not liking the fact that he felt like they were ganging up on him,” Bremmer explained. “He eventually agreed. He said, okay, he’ll sign it. At that point, he stood up, he put his hand in his pocket, his suit jacket pocket, and he took two Starburst candies out, threw them on the Continue reading "Trump Reportedly Threw Starburst At Angela Merkel During G-7: ‘Don’t Say I Never Gave You Anything’"
