Howard Stern: ‘Moron’ Spicer’s Hitler blunder made Trump White House a ‘laughingstock’

Published

on

Shock jock Howard Stern on Wednesday ridiculed Sean Spicer over his “crazy” comparison of Adolf Hitler and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, insisting the blunder proves Donald Trump’s White House press secretary speaks “fluent moron.”

Spicer made the controversial statement Tuesday during a White House press briefing, arguing Hitler “didn’t even sink” to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s level by using chemical weapons against. Spicer was forced to walk back that claim, eventually apologizing for becoming a “distraction” from the Trump administration.

“When I heard this, I was like, Trump’s got to fire this guy, I think,” Stern said on his SiriusXM radio show.

“Spicer managed to make Assad look good,” Stern argued, noting after Spicer made those remarks, the conversation shifted focus from the atrocities committed by Assad’s regime. Instead, people were left wondering how Spicer could “not know that Hitler marched his own people … to concentration camps and turned on chemical gas.”

“It was somewhat remarkable that a guy this high up in the administration wouldn’t know this,” Stern said. “The guy’s just not informed, and it’s kind of embarrassing—it’s just embarrassing.”

“But it’s entertaining as hell,” Stern added, insisting if what Trump wants is “ratings” and “comedy, there’s nothing better than this.”

“But if I’m President Trump, I’m like, well Jesus Christ, we’re a laughingstock,” Stern said.

Stern later observed Spicer—who the radio personality called “bottom of the barrel”—“always looks scared” while delivering his press briefings and interviews.

“There were no other guys available for this job when Trump was looking for a press secretary?” Stern asked, adding Spicer speaks “fluent moron.”

“Why would [Trump] not want a guy that makes him look good?” Stern, a long-time friends of the president, asked.

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering editorial asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering editorial, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
