Andrew Breitbart spoke Friday at the Chicago Tea Party’s TeaCon 2011 Convention in Schaumburg, where he attacked actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo. Breitbart told the crowd that Garofalo is “Hollywood’s sympathy fuck” because casting people feel sorry for her.
Garofalo, an outspoken liberal, has criticized the tea party movement. During an appearance on Coundown with Keith Olbermann, she said that presidential candidate Herman Cain “is probably well liked by some of the Republicans because it hides the racist elements of the Republican party.”

Mnuchin admits White House has transcript of Ukraine call and ‘they’re going to be kept confidential’
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin confirmed on Sunday that the White House does have a transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
During an interview on NBC's Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Mnuchin if he had an objection to Congress' request to see a transcript in which Trump allegedly asks Zelensky to open an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
While confirming that a transcript of the call exists, Mnuchin said that House Democrats have no right to see it.
"What I have a problem with is Congress asking for a transcript between world leaders," he told Todd. "I think that those are confidential discussions and that’s a difficult precedent."
Lindsey Graham drives bus over Trump kids to get to Biden: ‘You can’t investigate one family and not the other’

While speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Graham was asked if he is calling for an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son over dealings in the Ukraine. President Donald Trump allegedly also asked Ukraine's president for help with the Bidens.
"Yeah, I want the Department of Justice to appoint somebody to look at the role the Ukraine played if any in the 2016 elections," Graham told Bartiromo. "There are a lot of allegations out there how Ukraine fed information maybe to the Democrats."
Entire CNN panel beats down Santorum for Ukraine misinformation: ‘You don’t get to decide what the facts are’
Conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum was called out on Sunday after he seemed to be uneducated about President Donald Trump's attempt to have Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son.
During a panel discussion on CNN, Republican contributor Mia Love said that Trump's communication with Ukraine was not "appropriate" if he was looking for campaign help.
"There is no equivalence between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and what this president has allegedly done," Democratic consultant Karen Finney noted. "The things that were investigated against the Bidens [were] shelved, totally debunked."
