Fox News guest: Trump ‘can’t get over his anger’ at Sessions for recusing himself in Russia probe

Published

A Fox News guest suggested that President Donald Trump may be mentally unable to move beyond Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from the Russian investigation.

“He seems to be unable to get beyond that and just beyond the basic anger that he has about that whole situation,” Associated Press White House reporter Julie Bykowicz told Shepard Smith.

“In some ways, I feel like Jeff Sessions has become the scapegoat for the entire sort of Russia mess that the administration finds itself in with, you know, various congressional probes going on and of course the Special Counsel,” Bykowicz continued.

“First, he fired James Comey, now he wants Jeff Sessions out,” Smith replied.

Earlier in the show, Bykowicz expressed disbelief that Sessions had not yet be fire.

“It’s just really a head-scratcher why the President isn’t taking action on the Attorney General,” Bykowicas “It’s so clear that he does not want Jeff sessions in this position, he absolutely does have the ability to fire him,” Bykowicz reminded.

“So the ball is somewhat in the attorney general’s court at this point. we’ll have to check back in with Jeff Sessions and see if yet another day of the president pretty openly dump on him has changed his mind about whether he wants to continue in this role.”

“If you’re Jeff Sessions, you’ve got to be evaluating your job on a minute by minute basis here,” Bykowicz concluded.

Lady Antebellum changed their name for racial sensitivity — now they’re suing the Black singer who already used the name

Published

In June, as the national conversation about racial justice in the wake of the George Floyd killing pushed many groups and organizations to examine the racial connotations of their brands, the country music group Lady Antebellum announced they were changing their name to "Lady A" to remove reference to the slavery period of Southern history.

There was just one problem: an African-American blues singer in Seattle, Anita White, already went by that name. Now, according to Pitchfork, the band is going to court for the right to use the trademark.

Published

On Wednesday, The New York Times reported that the flight crew on an American Airlines trip ordered two passengers to stop social distancing and move back to their seats.

The reason? The empty row they moved into cost slightly more.

"On a June 30 flight on American Airlines from Dallas to Newark, Joy Gonzalez, an aviation engineer based in Seattle, found herself seated at a window with two older passengers beside her in the middle and aisle seats," reported Elaine Glusac. "In order to gain more social distance, she and the aisle passenger both moved to seats behind them where two rows were empty.
