In the end, the bailout that Obama championed saved more than one million jobs, and Fox News still hated it. If only Obama had saved 1,000 Carrier jobs instead.
Meet K.T. McFarland, Trump’s pick for deputy national security adviser. She has advocated for war with Iran and misled about its nuclear program, expressed support for torture, and has made bizarre and incendiary statements about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Bolling deleted a five-year-old racist tweet about President Obama immediately after Media Matters unearthed it. He’s obviously trying to hide his racism, and he’s doing a terrible job of it.
Trump called Hamilton “highly overrated,” but Pence praised the blockbuster musical, which dramatizes America’s founding in hip-hop style with a multiracial cast.
Conservatives are regurgitating attacks linking Ellison to Farrakhan that were first leveled at him during his first run for Congress in 2006.
During the campaign, the Committee to Protect Journalists declared Trump an “unprecedented threat” to free press. So far, his transition has indicated that won’t be changing anytime soon.
The day before the first presidential debate, Mr. Trump was in a lather again, Ms. Kelly writes. He called Fox executives, saying he’d heard that her first question “was a very pointed question directed at him.”
This election laid bare what has long plagued us. The clash between Trump and Clinton slit open the underbelly of America and a toxic stew has oozed out.
The reports leave little doubt that Fox News is acting as “the pipeline for the fifth column inside the bureau” that is publicly seeking to influence the election.
The GOP is trying to figure out what to do when its public face resembles a rodeo clown like Sean Hannity, and when so many Republican voters live inside the right-wing, fact-free, Rush Limbaugh bubble that Trump so firmly embraced.
Lou Dobbs has claimed that Donald Trump is the victim of a “globalist” conspiracy by the “Mormon mafia,” and he has derided former GOP nominee Mitt Romney for refusing to support Trump, saying maybe it’s because he is a Mormon and “getting visions.”
Trump is making the same mistake as Mitt Romney. He insists that public polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton are biased because they “oversample” Democrats. But that’s exactly the same argument that a lot of conservatives used in 2012 when Romney lost.
Fox News has attempted to delegitimize Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead in the polls for months, claiming that the polls are skewed due to oversampling, that the size of rallies Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump holds is more indicative of his support than polls, and that there are “secret” Trump supporters who are too embarrassed to tell pollsters whom they support.
After retreating to Fox News, the Trump campaign finds a way to get favorable media coverage by just doing it themselves. Is this the beginning of Trump TV?
The suggestion by CNN and Fox News that Clinton’s activities with regard to Morocco are a corrupt pay to play are dubious and baseless.
Trump’s anti-Semitism comes in different shapes and sizes. He verbalizes it, encourages it, enables it, tolerates it, and makes excuses for it. What he doesn’t do is condemn it.
Trump is using convicted criminal James O’Keefe’s heavily edited video to support his claims of a “rigged election” — a page out of Breitbart’s playbook.
What makes Wallace such an effective purveyor of dishonesty is that he’s good at playing the part of the reasonable, “even-handed” journalist, even when what he’s saying is wrong.
Given the constraints Wallace has placed on himself — and his network’s history of conservative misinformation — here’s what to expect at final the debate.
Even in the wake of fresh testimony from multiple women about his alleged sexual assaults and voyeurism, Monica Crowley sees a silver lining for the billionaire bully in these disturbing stories.
For conservative funders seeking to take down the most formidable Democratic presidential contender, Schweizer offered not just audacity and experience but his own nonprofit. As president of the Government Accountability Institute in Tallahassee, Florida, he could accept millions of dollars in tax-exempt funds for research, promotion, and expenses (including his $200,000 annual salary) from foundations and individuals. And unlike the Clintons, who had disclosed decades of tax returns and more than 300,000 foundation donors, Schweizer didn’t have to reveal any of his funders.
Looking to make the media rounds on Tuesday morning in an attempt to clean up his Monday night debate mess, Republican nominee Donald Trump actually had only one destination on his schedule: Fox News, of course.
“There is a movement afoot” to bring ousted Fox News CEO and alleged sexual harasser Roger Ailes “more into the process” of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, according to Washington Post reporter Robert Costa.
Donald Trump has never participated in a one-on-one presidential debate. Hillary Clinton has been in 10 of them. Yet it’s Clinton, not Trump, who is under the most pressure when the two presidential candidates face off Monday night in New York.
