During an all-women panel brought together to discuss the Women’s March on Washington for Don Lemon’s Friday night show, Hilary Rosen wasn’t letting conservative Kayleigh McEnany say the march was negative.
McEnany attempted to claim that she and many anti-choice activists were treated badly when they attempted to walk through the march. She claimed that there were threats of violence and horrible things said about the president of the United States.
Rosen refused to let her play the victim, saying that the day was about feminists and pro-choice women everywhere coming together for something positive.
“An entire day filled with love, no violence, not a single arrest, huge amount of good energy,” Rosen said. “I can’t accept the characterization of close to a million women coming to Washington being in communities around the country and you characterizing it as negative. It was not negative.”
She did concede that it was absolutely tough on those that fight against women’s rights and women’s choice but it wasn’t about “random violence.”
McEnany attempted to push the talking point that she wasn’t welcome and people were mean to her and other anti-choice people.
“Here’s the thing, people are afraid of being deported,” Rosen said. “People are afraid of having health care taken away, people are afraid of their rights being stripped by courts. Don’t act like that should be sunshine to Donald Trump and people against it. The president next week is going to appoint a Supreme Court justice if they get a majority votes will do all those things.”

State Department retaliated against NPR by kicking reporter off Mike Pompeo’s plane: report
The U.S. State Department appears to be retaliating against National Public Radio (NPR) after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suffered a caught-on-tape meltdown following an interview with NPR "All Things Considered" co-host Mary Louise Kelly.
According to PBS "Newshour" reporter Nick Schifrin, the State Department kicked NPR diplomatic correspondent Michele Kelemen off of Pompeo's jet.
"State Department removes NPR’s Michele Kelemen from Sec. Pompeo plane--where she was scheduled for a pool radio rotation--during upcoming trip to London, Kiev," Schifrin reported.
AFP State Department correspondent Shaun Tandon blasted the move on behalf of the State Department Correspondent's Association.
Trump’s lawyers slammed by CNN’s Toobin for ‘parade of lies’ about Biden’s involvement in Ukraine
On CNN Monday, chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin argued that the White House team's defense in the impeachment trial was disastrously bad.
"I thought Attorney General [Pam] Bondi did an effective job of showing how sleazy the hiring of Hunter Biden was," acknowledged Toobin. However, he added "her discussion, and Eric Herschmann's discussion, of the role of Joe Biden, vice president at the time, was a parade of lies. Just outrageously false in every fact, in every insinuation ... this idea that he engineered the fire firing of [Ukrainian prosecutor] Viktor Shokin to get his son in. Since Joe Biden is the one who is running for president, that seems to be enormously important."
Republicans claim Democrats leaked John Bolton’s book that was given to the White House — then quickly back down
In a bizarre twist, Republicans are blaming Democrats for releasing information included in John Bolton's.
Speaking in a line of Republicans, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) explained that it was clear Democrats were part of some kind of conspiracy to turn senators against the speedy trial the White House wanted. With the revelation that Bolton confirmed President Donald Trump was indeed trying to bribe Ukraine, a very few Republican senators are more willing to call him as a witness.
The problem, of course, with Meadows' accusations is that the manuscript was never sent to Democrats. According to the New York Times report, Bolton sent the book to the White House for security checks to ensure nothing he put in the book was classified.
