Stephen Colbert took a moment during their monologue to call out the media over their coverage of former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman and her media blitz promoting her book. Colbert began by mocking Omarosa for her recent realization that her former boss President Donald Trump is a “racist” after supposedly hearing him say the N-word on tape. “This is huge…” Colbert sarcastically reacted. “Finally, we have proof that the guy who refused to rent to black tenants, said that a Nazi Klan rally had some fine people and called Africa a sh*thole… is a racist… We didn’t know!” Later on, The Late Show host played several clips featuring political pundits weighing in on Omarosa, including CNN’s Brian Stelter calling her a “liar, backstabber, and self promoter” and New York Times columnist Bret Stephens insisting that “if anyone has less credibility than Donald Trump, it’s actually probably Continue reading "Colbert Hits Media For Dismissing Omarosa as ‘Unreliable’: You Can’t ‘Report’ and ‘Roll Your Eyes’ at Once!"

On Monday night, a CNN panel got quite heated between Steve Cortes, Bakari Sellers, and Ana Navarro over whether or not President Donald Trump is racist. Sellers began by insisting that it’s “very hard” to find black people who want to work for the Trump administration, comparing Trump to George Wallace and the “dog whistles” he used, something Cortes vehemently opposed. “For you to compare him to George Wallace… is so utterly insulting,” Cortes told Sellers. “There is not a sintela of evidence that this president is a racist. And just because you say it every time you’re on CNN and just because this show says it every single night doesn’t make it true. And all he has done is make life better for minorities. And by the way, both blacks and Hispanics are responding to their improved lives with vastly higher approval numbers for this president.” Continue reading "Ana Navarro, Bakari Sellers Battle Steve Cortes For Saying Trump Isn’t Racist: ‘Lay Off The Kool-Aid!’"
Sean Hannity may have cut a little deeper than he intended with a comment to his Fox News colleague Laura Ingraham. As is custom, Hannity threw to Ingraham at the conclusion of his broadcast, and the two — as they often do in these casual chats — needled each other a bit. But then, Hannity made a comment which he seemed to mean in jest — but one which the 10 P.M. host did not seem to appreciate. “Are you gonna get in trouble every week on the air?” Hannity said. “Do you have to get in trouble every week?” Hannity, of course, was referring to the latest in a series of controversies involving Ingraham — the fallout over comments she made last Wednesday on her show about “massive demographic changes” in the U.S. “[I]n some parts of the country, it does seem like the America Continue reading "Hannity to Ingraham Amid Latest Controversy: ‘Do You Have to Get in Trouble Every Week?’"
Tucker Carlson returned to Fox News on Monday night after a week-long break, and teamed up with Mark Steyn to slam Antifa and dismiss the notion that white supremacy still has a serious presence in America. Since the Unite the Right 2 rally-goers in Charlottesville and Washington D.C. were vastly outnumbered by counter-protesters over the weekend, Carlson sarcastically bashed the media and political figures who continue to say that white supremacy is a national crisis. “So much for the Klan rally,” Carlson snarked. “White supremacy is not ubiquitous in America, it’s not a crisis. It’s not even a meaningful category. It is incredibly rare…People who tell you otherwise are either delusional or trying to control with you fear, likely both.” Like his Fox Business colleague Lou Dobbs, Carlson focused on the bad behavior from Antifa and other counter-protesters during their demonstrations against white nationalists. He also tore Continue reading "Mark Steyn Compares Antifa to Charlie Hebdo Shooters: ‘Someone is Gonna Get Killed’ Because of Them"
Lou Dobbs took a markedly-harsher approach to Antifa than he did with white supremacists on Monday night as he covered the events this weekend in Charlottesville, VA and Washington, D.C. White nationalists led by Jason Kessler were largely outnumbered by counter-protesters over the last few days when they tried to hold a sequel to last year’s infamous Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, VA. Some of these counter-protesters were affiliated with Antifa, and there were several who harassed reporters and clashed with law enforcement. The counter-protests gave Dobbs enough fodder to work with, so he kicked off his show tonight by lambasting the “Antifa thugs” for their behavior. Dobbs acknowledged Kessler and his fellow demonstrators as “white nationalists” at first, but soon he softened up by referring to them as “so-called white supremacists” — while putting the focus back on “thuggery” of the counter-protesters who wished harm upon President Continue reading "WATCH: Lou Dobbs Refers to Unite the Right 2 Rallygoers as ‘So-Called White Supremacists’ While Blasting Antifa"
Omarosa Manigault Newman is willing to cooperate with Robert Mueller‘s office if they ask her for any of the recordings she took. She confirmed to Chris Matthews tonight that she has plenty more recordings that haven’t been made public yet. “Anything Mueller would like to see?” Matthews asked. “If his office calls again, anything they want, I’ll share,” she responded. She added that Trump should be impeached. Her saying “again” would seem to indicate Mueller’s office reached out to her previously, something that had not been reported on, though there is apparently this little tidbit in her new book:

She says in her book that she was contacted by the FBI in 2018 but doesn't say what she said or why. "We'll see how that goes," she writes vaguely. https://t.co/XHdU3I5zHt— Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) August 13, 2018
