WATCH: Fox News host slams Nancy Pelosi for accusing Steve Bannon of ‘white supremacist’

Published

on

Fox News host Bob Beckel doesn’t like Steve Bannon, but doesn’t want people to call the senior White House strategist a “white supremacist.”

“I suppose using the word ‘white supremacist’ without having proof beyond the fact, that in the web page, there were some white supremacists who wrote some things,” Beckel told co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle.

“I don’t like Bannon,” Beckel confessed. “I don’t like any of them. That is not the point.”

Guilfoyle argued that Bannon isn’t a white supremacist and to accuse him of such is outright slander from Democratic Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi who referred to him as such.

“It’s really conduct unbecoming,” she continued. “[Pelosi] has no proof to back that up. It shows the depths that they will go to try to disparage someone and the desperation, really, of the liberals. And I’m so sorry, Bob, but, your party right now.”

Bannon is often known as a whisperer of the “alt-right.”

WATCH: Trump whines to Turkish president he only takes questions from ‘friendly reporters’

In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.

"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdo?an after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."

Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.

The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.

Fox legal analyst: Today was a good day for anyone who wants to shorten the Trump presidency

Published

As the first public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump wrapped up this Wednesday, former assistant US attorney and Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy said that he originally expected Republicans' "best pitch" to be that the Democrats' impeachment inquiry hasn't demonstrated anything impeachable.

"Instead what they've tried to do is go at this by saying, 'Nothing bad happened, it was perfect,'" McCarthy said, adding that the latter tactic will open them up to an "itemization of a number of irregularities that happened and a lot of very admirable and articulate government witnesses getting on the witness stand to say, 'This shouldn't have happened, that shouldn't have happened, this is a departure from American interests, a departure from American norms.'"

George Conway blows apart Republicans’ ‘illogical and incoherent’ defense’ of Trump

Published

on

Republican Washington lawyer George Conway found the GOP's attempts to defend President Donald Trump to be "illogical and incoherent."

The spouse of Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, explained that the witnesses were clearly non-partisan professionals only willing to talk about the facts.

"And the facts are quite damning. And the defenses that were put up by the Republicans were fundamentally illogical and incoherent," Conway told MSNBC. "I mean, one defense was, 'Hey, they actually got the money. The Ukrainians got the money and Zelensky didn’t make a statement. But the fact of the matter is, it was the ask that was illegal."
