Bristol Palin backs Trump, slams Fox News president for saying he only hired her mom because she was ‘hot’

Published

on

Saying she was breaking with her normal routine of blogging about liberals and their “outrage industry,” Bristol Palin turned her guns on her mother’s former employers — Fox News — for their attacks on Donald Trump.

Since last week’s Fox News GOP debate, Trump’s campaign has spent more time attacking debate moderator and Fox host Megyn Kelly than going after Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Trump has come under withering criticism for saying Kelly had “Blood coming out of her wherever” when she pressed him about comments he had previously made about women.

Writing on her blog, the daughter of the former half-term Alaskan governor claimed that she doesn’t “endorse” everything that comes out of the mouth of the bombastic GOP presidential front runner, saying, ” I actually have to work for a living and I don’t pay as much attention to politics as professional pundits.  But I know that I hate the ‘politics of outrage’ that people engage in.”

Palin lambasted Fox contributor Erick Erickson for attacking Trump and disinviting the candidate from a RedState gathering in Atlanta over the weekend due to his misogynistic attacks on Kelly.

“Want to learn some ‘lessons in sexual and political decency’ from Erickson?” Palin wrote. “Erickson’s RedState once used a demeaning fake photo (wearing a revealing shirt with Santa Claus) of my Mom for an attack article on her.  Erickson refused to take it down even after he was made aware that it was photoshopped.”

The soon-to-be single mother of two, also hammered the Fox debate moderators for asking GOP candidates questions “that the New York Times applauds.”

She then served up a shot at Fox News President Roger Ailes for hypocrisy over sexist comments, noting he once said, “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.”

Trump has previously said he would consider Sarah Palin for a spot in his administration.

Republican lawmakers ask judge to destroy smoking gun documents proving GOP’s white supremacy

Published

Republicans on Monday sought a court order to block damning documents from being used against them in a lawsuit.

"North Carolina Republican lawmakers on Monday asked a court to make sure the files of the now-deceased GOP strategist Tom Hofeller are destroyed, or at least kept secret, instead of being used in a high-profile gerrymandering lawsuit," the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

"The filing comes after the groups behind the lawsuit, including Common Cause, accused Republican lawmakers of making false statements in court in a previous gerrymandering case, when the state’s 2011 maps were ruled unconstitutional," the newspaper noted. "That blockbuster accusation made national headlines and was, it said, based on Hofeller’s files which had been secret until recently."

Trump angrily demands newspaper reveal unnamed sources behind bombshell report on his Russia policy

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday evening again lashed out at The New York Times for reporting on his Russia policy.

"The story in The New York Times about the U.S. escalating attacks on Russia’s power grid is fake news, and the failing New York Times knows it," Trump argued in a tweet sent after 10 p.m.

"They should immediately release their sources which, if they exist at all, which I doubt, are phony," he continued.

"Times must be held fully accountable," he demanded.

In a tweet Monday night, the president lashed out at the network over its polling and called it “fake news’ — an epithet he usually reserves for mainstream outlets:

Media Matters for America Senior Fellow Matthew Gertz, who has previously noted that Trump appears to record news segments and watch them a few hours later, suggested that the president appeared to be reacting to an earlier segment from Special Report with Bret Baier. The segment showed that, even according to Fox News’ polling, Trump trails every single leading candidate in the Democratic field in head-to-head matchups.
