Sean Hannity backtracks on threat to leave New York over Gov. Cuomo’s remarks

Published

on

In an appearance on Greta Van Susteren’s Fox News show “On the Record” Tuesday, Sean Hannity attempted to walk back his announcement earlier in the day that he was leaving New York for Texas or Florida.

Talking Points Memo reported that Hannity was reacting to comments by Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) last week in which the governor said that far-right extremist Republicans aren’t welcome in the state.

“I think people might have interpreted it that I’m leaving the next day. If I could I probably would, but I like to consider myself a responsible person,” Hannity said Tuesday evening. Too many people depend on his show, he said, as their means of making a living.

Instead, he said, he and his wife will continue to live in the “United Socialist State of New York,” but just complain about it more, particularly what he feels to be an unfair tax burden imposed by the state.

“It’s like I’m facilitating the robbery of the hard-earned money that I’m making, and I’m not gonna do it anymore,” he groused. “As soon as I am able, sometime probably when my son graduates from high school, I’m getting out of here as quick as I can.”

Watch Joy Reid’s epic correction of GOP strategist: ‘This is going to be a white nationalist reelection’

Published

on

President Donald Trump will continue to attack the four young women of color in Congress known as The Squad, MSNBC anchor Joy Reid predicted on Friday.

Trump has repeatedly used racist attacks to target the four, who are Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Host Steve Kornacki interviewed Republican strategist Noelle Nikpour about Trump's message.

"So Noelle, for Republicans, again the folks who were getting in touch with [Mike] Pence and saying 'make Trump stop doing this,' do they have to be ready now for the possibility Trump’s going to keep doing these rallies, he wants to run against these four congresswomen in particular, make them the face of the Democratic Party?" Kornacki asked. "If the crowd starts chanting again, 'send her back,' 'send them back,” doesn't stop, is this going to be a feature of Trump rallies from here through 2020?"

Trump hates women of color for birthing babies keeping him from ‘making America white again’: MSNBC analyst

Published

on

President Donald Trump's loathing of women of color is driven by the fact he hates the babies they birth, a Rutgers University professor argued on MSNBC on Friday.

"The Beat" anchor Ari Melber interviewed Prof. Brittney Cooper about Trump's racist attacks on four young women of color in Congress.

"Look, the thing that bothers me about Trump and his cronies is that they have a long history of attacking women of color, and it’s really important to say these comments are not just racist, they’re also deeply sexist," Cooper explained.

"They don't just attack people of color, they also specifically go after women of color," she continued.

Hope Hicks’ testimony ‘appears to be false’ — and Democrats have a plan to prove it: Judiciary member

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks likely lied to Congress -- and Democrats have a plan to prove it, a Democrat on the House Judiciary said on MSNBC on Friday.

Anchor Peter Alexander interviewed Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) about potential perjury by Hicks, who was a close confidant of Trump during his campaign, transition, and administration.

"It has been several months since President Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen testified that President Trump directed him to pay hush-money payments to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, but new documents muddy the waters a bit for former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who testified to the House Judiciary Committee that she had no knowledge of the payments before they were made," Alexander reported.
