That time Carly Fiorina swore ‘Ted Cruz cannot possibly beat Hillary Clinton’

Published

on

Ted Cruz has named his running mate, Carly Fiorina — who once said he had no chance to beat Hillary Clinton.

Fiorina, who ended her own White House bid in February, made the remarks after a Cruz surrogate launched a sexist attack against her after she referred to her own gender during the opening remarks of a debate, reported Right Wing Watch.

Iowa talk show host Steve Deace, who endorsed Cruz and has served as a campaign surrogate for the Texas senator, complained that the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive officer had gone “full vagina” during her statement.

When challenged by another Twitter user, who called his social media post “disgusting,” Deace fired back: “Completely agree. I think a GOP presidential candidate’s opening statement being all about her gender is disgusting.”

Fiorina, for her part, attacked Cruz during an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.

“(Deace) is more than a radio talk host, he is a major surrogate of Ted Cruz and a major endorser — and this is why Ted Cruz cannot possibly beat Hillary Clinton,” Fiorina said.

She continued hammering Cruz several weeks later, during another interview.

“Ted Cruz is just like any other politician, he says one thing in Manhattan, he says another thing in Iowa, he says whatever he needs to say to get elected and then he’s going to do what he pleases,” Fiorina said.

Trump’s lawyers are trying to tell Appeals Court they actually won the taxes lawsuit — but are still appealing

Published

on

President Donald Trump's lawyers sent out a bizarre letter to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, making the case that they actually won their case to keep the president's taxes a secret. It's an odd take given that they're filing for an appeal.

Oct. 7, a federal judge dismissed Trump's efforts in a 75-page opinion calling the White House claim "extraordinary."

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero explained that no occupant of the White House enjoys "absolute immunity from criminal process of any kind." Such a position "would constitute an overreach of executive power."

Nate Silver claps back at right-wing pollster for accusing him of fraud

Published

on

One of the worst-performing national pollsters in the 2018 election cycle was Rasmussen Reports, a right-leaning outfit that is consistently the only one to show President Donald Trump with a net positive approval rating. In 2018, Rasmussen showed Republicans leading the generic congressional ballot by 1 point — but Democrats won the popular vote by 8.4 points.

Nonetheless, Rasmussen is proud of its methodology and particularly irritated when polling analyst and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver points out their inaccuracy. Over the past two weeks, they have twice accused him of "fraud" and characterized his analyses as "corrupt."

Trump told Republicans he didn’t care ‘about terrorists 7,000 miles away’

Published

President Donald Trump reportedly doesn't care about terrorists, according to sources inside the room after Democrats abandoned the Wednesday meeting with the president.

Washington Post Congressional reporter Mike DeBonis said that the president said "several times" in the meeting that he isn't concerned about terrorists that live 7,000 miles away.

The source said that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had to remind the president that the Sept. 11 terrorists "came from 7,000 away" themselves.

The president has neglected to understand terrorists can attack the U.S. on North American soil as well as at embassies, military bases, international sporting events, or even Trump's properties. It would be simple for ISIS to use a car bomb to attack Trump's property in Indonesia, as an example.
