Safety zone: Fox’s Megyn Kelly says she won’t ask the Duggars any ‘tough’ questions

Published

on

Don’t expect Megyn Kelly to conduct a “cross-examination” of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar during their scheduled appearance Wednesday on Fox News.

The host warned viewers that she may not be as “tough” as some might wish in asking the reality TV stars about revelations that their eldest son molested five young girls, including some of his sisters, reported Mediaite.

“Nothing is off limits,” Kelly said. “I don’t plan on getting into the specific details about what was done, because my understanding is the victims don’t want to discuss that either.”

Police reports indicate the couple waited more than a year to report the abuse and may have helped cover up criminal activity by a then-teenaged Josh Duggar.

Kelly complained that media reports have highlighted the family’s connections to prominent Republicans, particularly presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee – who offered a full-throated defense of his fellow Arkansans.

“Bill Clinton was accused of rape,” Kelly said. “He has been accused by several women of sexually assaulting them. But the fact that a presidential candidate has posed with some random member of the family that’s going through this issue is somehow a problem for the GOPers?”

Nearly all of the current GOP presidential candidates have been photographed with the 27-year-old Duggar – who resigned in the wake of the sex abuse revelations from his position with the anti-LGBT Family Research Council.

“I’ve been pretty disgusted by how some liberal media types are using what’s obviously a family tragedy to score political points,” said guest Howard Kurtz.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
