Fox News host Sean Hannity is reportedly using his platform to participate in a Trump campaign “media blitz” by hosting a special program to interview Bill Clinton’s accusers.

After several women accused Donald Trump of inappropriate touching on Thursday, campaign advisers explained to Bloomberg that the GOP nominee was “doubling down” on his strategy to depress turnout by dredging up Bill Clinton’s scandals.

According to a senior Trump official, campaign CEO Stephen Bannon told staffers that he wanted to focus on Hillary Clinton’s “program of victim intimidation.”

“This has nothing to do with consensual sexual affairs and infidelities,” Bannon reportedly said. “This is Bill. We’re going to turn him into Bill Cosby. He’s a violent sexual predator who physically abuses women who he assaults. And she takes the lead on the intimidation of the victims.”

Hannity’s Fox News special is scheduled to air Thursday night. During the program, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones are expected to recount their alleged assaults by Bill Clinton.

As Bloomberg’s Joshua Greene noted, few millennial women voters watch Hannity’s program so the campaign also plans to use Trump’s Twitter account to force the issue.

“By tweeting, by just moving it out there. The mainstream media will be embarrassed not to cover this,” one adviser insisted.

Update: CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Trump backed out an interview on Hannity’s Thursday night’s show. But the interviews with Kathy Shelton, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broaddrick were expected to go on as planned.

‘At the edge of an abyss’: Experts warn America could plunge into sectarian violence after election

Published

Experts on international conflict resolution are warning that the United States is on the verge of seeing a wave of sectarian violence unleashed by the 2020 presidential election.

In interviews with NPR, several experts said the United States is exhibiting troubling signs that other countries that have been plagued by sectarian violence have shown in recent decades.

"We thought we were immune to it," said Tim Phillips, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Beyond Conflict. "When we looked at our own problems, we thought: 'Of course we have some big issues, but we're in a sense immune from an us-versus-them mindset, a sectarian mindset, where there could be real conflict.'"

Trump’s massive rallies amid COVID-19 pandemic are flopping in key battleground states

Published

It is no secret President Donald Trump loves to bask in MAGA glory at his rallies, but a new survey shows his campaign blitz may be backfiring as voters wonder if the president bears responsibility for hosting potential super-spreader events while COVID-19 batters the Midwestern United States.

A new survey, compiled of voters in six battleground states—Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—found that a great number of voters view Trump "much less" or "somewhat less favorably" due to his continued behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic, reports US News. Despite alarming upticks in cases across the Midwest, Trump has continued to visit vulnerable states and hold massive rallies all while disregarding COVID-19 mitigation practices.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Jared Kushner for bragging about Trump’s COVID-19 disaster

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blasted Jared Kushner for bragging about actions that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths from the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser told reporter Bob Woodward the president had wrested control of the pandemic response away from the doctors, and the "Morning Joe" host said that admission was damning.

"We actually have the 'Perry Mason' moment," Scarborough said. "We actually have the person on the witness stand who is actually testifying against interests for himself and for Donald Trump. They deliberately, deliberately 'freed' America from the doctors and the scientists, so by the end of this, 400,000 people will be dead. Almost as many Americans who died in World War II."
