To the surprise of practically no one, the panel on ABC’s The View didn’t have much good to say about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s continuing fat-shaming jihad against former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, with one stating, “The message is ‘don’t vote for me’.”
Following a discussion over Trump’s unrelenting attacks on Machado, which continued Tuesday morning during an interview on Fox & Friends, it was conservative panelist, Jedediah Bila, who lowered the boom on Trump — essentially telling him to ‘man up.’
“Okay. Now is that this guy doesn’t know how to apologize it seems, because this happened a long time ago and everybody has a past and all of us have said things that maybe we sit and say ‘I regret it,'” she began. “It’s seems though he doesn’t regret it, because the comment here, the only acceptable remark is, ‘You know what? That was a long time ago when I was a different man and I’m sorry. I’m deeply sorry that I said those things.'”
“That shows character, there’s a character flaw here,” she continued. “And everybody want to blame his handlers and say, ‘Why isn’t he being told,” and I say, you know what, you’re a grown man running for president, you’re responsible for what you said, and you’re responsible for owning up. And I don’t care who your handlers are — grow up and say, ‘I’m sorry'”

‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
