Fox’s Judge Jeanine: If the devil had dirt on an opponent I’d be ‘on the first trolley to Hell’

Published

on

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro said on Sunday made an interesting admission with regards to her morals around electoral help from hostile foreign powers or other unsavory sources.

The Hill reported that Pirro said she would ride “the first trolley to Hell” if the devil had incriminating information on a political rival.

Pirro was defending the actions of President Donald Trump’s eldest son Donald Jr. who met with a Kremlin-aligned Russian Lawyer and a Russian-born lobbyist along with the top brass of the Donald Trump 2016 campaign staff.

“This hysteria has nothing to do with Russia and everything to do with Donald Trump,” Pirro said, “their hatred, their intolerance, their venom for him. And if it doesn’t stop, then the Democrats alone will be responsible for the demise of a workable and effective government for the people.”

She went on, ““As someone who’s run for office five times, if the Devil called me and said he wanted to set up a meeting to give me opposition research on my opponent, I’d be on the first trolley to Hell to get it.”

She added, “And any politician who tells you otherwise is a bald-faced liar.”

“There is no law that says a campaign cannot accept information from a foreign government,” she insisted.

However, The Federal Election Campaign Act stipulates, “Federal law prohibits a foreign national from directly or indirectly making a “contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election[.]” 52 U.S.C. § 30121(a)(1)(A), and prohibits a person from soliciting, accepting or receiving such a contribution or donation from a foreign national, id. a § 30121(a)(2).”

The term “thing of value” is the key element of the statute here, which courts have ruled can include information about a political opponent, meaning that if anyone on or related to the Trump campaign received opposition research information from a foreign national, they have placed themselves in legal jeopardy.

Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental fitness just draw attention to his own problems: Joy Reid panel

Published

on

MSNBC host Joy Reid gave some helpful advice to President Donald Trump and his children, who frequently attack former Vice President Joe Biden for his mental health: It makes you look worse.

Speaking to her closing Wednesday panel with Jason Johnson and Howard Fineman, Reid showed a super-cut of Trump's knack for getting words wrong, not knowing how to pronounce simple things, slurring his words, stumbling down the stairs, not knowing where to go, dragging his feet and more.

"Well, you know, my pretext for all my students this fall will be: person, woman, man, camera, tv, and if they can do that, I know they're at least as smart as the president," joked Johnson. "Here's the thing. Joe Biden demonstrated that he literally can ride a bike and do something else at the same time. Like, I have always thought the argument that Joe Biden has lost a step or has some sort of mental deficiency was a complete lie. It's Republicans just projecting. What's important to remember is that no matter how much they spout this nonsense, every single time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he looks worse. There is nothing Joe Biden can say that is more foolish or incoherent than Donald Trump in the middle of a substantive interview."

Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?

Published

on

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
