On Thursday, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs suggested the real reason that CNN was suing to get Jim Acosta‘s hard pass back was to get attention and publicity. Speaking with former Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie — the latest in a long line of Trumpians to have out a new book — Dobbs started out by calling Acosta an “embarrassment.” “He is an embarrassment and that is one of the reasons that the president decided to take the swift action that he did,” Bossie agreed with Dobbs. “Jim Acosta made that press conference a travesty. And he made about himself. It was his ego-driven speech to the president that, not a question, not a question but a speech.” Then turning to CNN’s lawsuit, Dobbs said he doesn’t think “anyone should take very seriously” and called it “frivolous.” “This is a publicity stunt on the part of CNN Continue reading "Lou Dobbs: CNN Suing to Get Acosta’s Hard Pass Back is ‘Publicity Stunt’"
Michelle Obama sat down with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night to talk about her post-White House life and her new book. After talking about how her husband Barack Obama has a messy desk, getting real about paying for food in the White House and how her dogs had appearance schedules too, Mrs. Obama read off prepared cards of things she could not say while First Lady. “The whole eight years we were in the White House, we used Laura Bush’s Netflix password,” she read, offering to pay the bill. “I’m not sure which one’s Sasha and which one’s Malia,” she also read, adding her girls would agree. “I stole the phrase when we go low, they go high from the back of a Snapple cap,” she read with a laugh. “Clooney is my freebie,” she also read, without comment. The only one Mrs. Obama actually said was not true Continue reading "Michelle Obama Reads Things She Couldn’t Say as First Lady on Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
In an unusual segment on Laura Ingraham‘s The Ingraham Angle Thursday night, millennial vaper Tommy Smokes aka Tommy Scibelli defended his right to blow big fat clouds especially since it helped him get chicks. “I’m 22 years old,” Smokes said when Ingraham asked him about vaping. “I’m using them legally and honestly they are cool. You rip them. There is nothing cooler than blowing a fat cloud like that. They call me the Colossus of Cloud. It helps my swag. It helps my drip. I love walking around. It’s really good for getting chicks.” Ingraham then had a doctor weigh in on the health risks while Smokes continued to vape and cough.

President Donald Trump has become notorious for his ongoing stream of inflammatory Twitter tirades, but CNN’s Don Lemon has no hope that his staffers will ever be able to rein him in. During the start of his broadcast Thursday evening, Lemon caught up with colleague Chris Cuomo and the two discussed the commander in chief’s latest social media attack targeting Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Cuomo appeared stunned by Trump’s post falsely claiming Mueller served the Obama administration for eight years, stating, “I can’t believe that the men and women around this man let him tweet the things that he does when they have to know the minute they look at them, the minute they hear the idea, this is going to hurt us.” “Him saying that Mueller served under Obama for eight years, it’s just not true, and there’s no reason for him to double the amount of time that Continue reading "Don Lemon Doubts Trump’s Twitter Tirades Can Be Reined In: ‘He’s a Grown A– Man,’ How Can You Stop Him?"
For the second night in a row, Fox News’ Sean Hannity defended Stormy Daniel lawyer Michael Avenatti’s right to due process after his arrest for alleged domestic violence but then slammed him for his role in the Kavanaugh accusations. Last night, Hannity said that Avenatti deserved due process but then brought up Avenatti’s part in making claims against Kavanaugh. Then tonight, Hannity noted that things had come “full circle” for the Kavanaugh accuser who he said tried to destroy the judge’s life. “Remember it was he that pushed a phony claim from a client named Julie Swetnick,” Hannity said. “Remember they came out with that affidavit.” He added: “No evidence was ever presented. Swetnick later backtracked during an interview with NBC…It is clear that Avenatti, he wanted to derail Judge Kavanaugh’s life over these absurd claims. He should have gotten the full story and how does his own Continue reading "Hannity: Avenatti Didn’t Give ‘a Rip’ About Ruining Kavanaugh’s Life, Now It’s Come ‘Full Circle’ for Him"
Spreading a baseless claim on his evening program Thursday, Fox News’ Lou Dobbs argued a substantial number of immigrants cast ballots in the midterm elections. “We’re watching millions of illegal immigrants cross our borders and many of them voting in the past election…a couple of weeks ago, and having an immense impact,” Dobbs said. “If there, as Yale and M.I.T. say, 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants already in this country, you know what that means for the districts of the U.S. Congress and the influence that they’re giving to, for example, the state of California, Illinois, New York.” While Dobbs is correct that a September study from Yale and M.I.T. stated that there could be, at most, nearly 30 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., his claim that they’re influencing election outcomes holds no water. In fact, there is no evidence Continue reading "Lou Dobbs Spreads Unsubstantiated Claim That ‘Many’ Illegal Immigrants Voted in Midterms: They’re ‘Having an Immense Impact’"
Florida rejected recount results from the Broward County elections office on Thursday night after officials missed the deadline to submit by just two minutes. MSNBC’s Ari Melber had on Brad Todd, senior advisor to Rick Scott‘s Senate campaign, to react. “Brad, your candidate may ultimately win, and yet he has really sort of embarrassed himself by saying all these things aren’t true, by alleging this process was going to hurt him,” Melber said to Scott on The Beat. “In fact, before these numbers were just canceled out, the Democratic margin was decreasing?” “Wait a minute Ari,” Todd replied. “Every time when you’re a kid and you said the dog ate my homework, the dog really never ate your homework. And they really didn’t have this issue of two minutes ahead of time.” Todd then accused Broward County officials of deliberately missing the deadline because they realized Continue reading "MSNBC’s Ari Melber Grills Rick Scott Adviser on New Voter Fraud Claims: Your Candidate Has ‘Embarrassed Himself’"
