Donald Trump on Meet the Press (NBC screen grab)

ON NBC’s Meet The Press, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump continued his attacks on Hillary Clinton by bringing up her husband’s sexual indiscretions, while dismissing his own troubled marital history as unimportant because he wasn’t president at the time.

Speaking with host Chuck Todd, Trump continued to swing back at Clinton by using former President Bill Clinton’s sexual history as a cudgel after she accused him of having a “penchant for sexism.”

Cautioned by Todd that, if he continues to talk about the ex-president’s infidelity, he was opening himself up to the same treatment, Trump said, “It’s okay.”

“I mean, your first divorce was ugly,” Todd replied. “It was all over the tabloids.”

“You know what? I wasn’t the President of the United States, and I wasn’t dealing in the Oval Office, all right? Big difference,” Trump parried.

Trump went on to say that his first wife, Ivana, thinks he is “great,” without mentioning his affair with Georgia beauty queen Marla Maples that broke up his first marriage before Maples briefly became his second wife.

Neal Katyal predicts law schools will teach a ‘Worst Mistakes in Court’ class on Trump’s ‘pathetic’ 20-day fiasco

Published

Prominent lawyer Neal Katyal is best known for having tried over 40 cases before the United States Supreme Court and serving as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration.

But he also has spent more than two decades as a law professor at Georgetown.

He drew upon all of that experience for a Monday evening appearance on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

"Someday a law school class is going to be called 'The Worst Mistakes in Court' -- and it will be just about these 20 days," Katyal predicted. "Because this legal strategy is so pathetic it makes Trump's coronavirus strategy look competent by contrast."

Republicans are terrified of having to think for themselves once Trump is gone: S.E. Cupp

Published

on

On CNN Monday, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp argued that GOP lawmakers are not just scared of retribution for not standing with outgoing President Donald Trump; they are also scared of having to define what they stand for as a party without him telling them what to believe.

"For the past four years, we, especially in the media, have heard Republicans in private are XYZ — disgusted, disturbed, troubled — but publicly, very silent, except in these moments where it really doesn't count, where everyone is doing it," said Cupp. "I think, in fact, if I write another book, I will call it 'In private: the great cowardice of Trump's GOP.'"

Fox host whines about the media after Trump begins transition: ‘The 2020 election was not fair’

On Fox News Monday, Tucker Carlson — who just a few days previously criticized President Donald Trump's attorney for refusing to provide evidence for voter fraud conspiracy theories — attacked the entire voting process as unfair.

"Other countries understand it, they don't use electronic voting because they know it undermines confidence in democracy," said Carlson. "We ought to revert immediately to the traditional system of voting, the one that served our democracy for hundreds of years ... but at the same time, we shouldn't let our focus on voting machines distract us from all that happened earlier this month. The 2020 presidential election was not fair. No honest person would claim that it was fair."
