Trump refuses interview with female Florida reporter unless she gives him questions in advance

Republican nominee Donald Trump made a campaign stop in St. Augustine, Florida on Monday where he conveniently dodged an one-on-one interview with a tough local reporter, Florida Politics reports.

Action News Jax reporter Jenna Bourne had set up a one-on-one interview with Trump on Monday following his rally, but the campaign refused to meet with Bourne after she declined to send them a list of questions.

Rather than sending a full list of questions, Bourne, after consulting Action News Jax, sent the campaign a few general ideas, which included “Marco Rubio, diplomacy in the White House, Hispanic Florida voters and Refugees.”

The irony is not lost. Trump has been on a crusade over the last two weeks after a WikiLeaks leak revealed that interim DNC chair Donna Brazile provided Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with the exact wording of one question ahead of a town hall event.

Of course, the Republican nominee responded to the information in the best way he knows how: on Twitter, and at his rallies. He took to Twitter and said, “Why didn’t Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions – she secretly used them! Crooked Hillary.”

During a campaign stop in Delaware, Ohio last week, Trump said to his supporters, “Can you imagine if I got the questions?They would call for the reestablishment of the electric chair.”

It seems, then, that the only time that anyone should receive questions in advance is when Trump is faced with an interview with a tough female reporter.

The Trump campaign reportedly “ghosted” Bourne — meaning they cancelled the interview with little to no notice — who said they told her the interview had either never been scheduled or that a “decision hadn’t been made” about whether to schedule one in the first place.

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
