Sarah Palin goes on Fox to denounce interview of Duggar girls — conducted on Fox

Published

on

Appearing on Fox New with Sean Hannity, former half-term Alaskan governor Sarah Palin criticized “the media” for its coverage of the Duggar family scandal, singling out the interview with two Duggar daughters — while failing to mention that it was conducted by Megyn Kelly on Fox.

Although the Duggars agreed to give exclusive interviews with Kelly — spread out over two nights on her Kelly Files — Palin attacked her favorite target, “the mainstream media,” saying the girls were being “revictimized” but without mentioning they appeared on Fox.

What followed was Palin going off on one of her stream-of-consciousness rants regarding reality shows, the media, liberal bias, and Lena Dunham.

“I wrote a post after Bristol had pointed out that issues like, say, um, that liberal actress Lena Dunham having admitted and gleefully wrote about and offered up, rewarded with fame and fortune for, admitting to her sexual predatation [sic] with her own little sister, that she used her for sexual experiments and for her sexual outlet and, as I say, Lena Dunham has been praised, rewarded, and, um, and , you know, the media has this great big yawn when it comes to covering she or others that we have heard about on the liberal side of issues. And yet they try to crucify an entire family for a 14-year-old boy’s issue that he had, that was a bad bad bad issue, that he had twelve years ago, and it was an example that I used for this double standard, the hypocrisy, that, uh….so, you know, absolute blatant in this case.”

After Hannity shared a clip from Megyn Kelly’s interview with Jill and Jess Duggar, pointing out that they are part of a reality show family much like hers, Palin was off again.

“They do have a right to privacy. Yeah, well the difference with our family too, like the Duggars, is that people actually make their living by digging and poking and priding, I mean prodding, trying to find something on conservative families to try to destroy them and their reputations, but that’s another story. Uh, yeah, these girls are being re-victimized, for shame on the media for, under the guise of ‘Hey, gotta let them have their say anyway. Let’s interview them and put them there, back into the fire, and let them explain.’ They’re innocent! And these girls, yeah, so humiliated. The release of these confidential records is, it’s tragic, it’s illegal, it’s unethical. Why isn’t the dialogue going right now towards ‘Hey, let’s get that law enforcement official, he or her, who released this file. It was confidential.’  Who. who has been a victim, would ever want to speak out and still be able to trust law enforcement. That what they’re being told, with counselors and amongst themselves, that their files are going to be held confidential and then they’re exploited.  Why isn’t the press going after that police chief, she or he or whomever it was, and you know it was for political reasons, Sean.”

A Florida sheriff ordered his officers to not wear face masks -- and banned the safety gear from his office -- even as the southern US state has hit record daily coronavirus death tolls.

Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida's Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday to tell them of the new mask prohibition, according to local paper the Ocala Star Banner, citing the message.

"My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the email read.

The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.

‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes

Published

on

"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.

Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
