Sean Hannity melts down in humiliation after conservative group rescinds his ‘Media Excellence’ award

Published

on

Sean Hannity was set to receive the William F. Buckley Award for Media Excellence this week from the right-wing Media Research Center — before, that is, William F. Buckley’s son personally intervened to stop it.

As CNN’s Jake Tapper reports, author Christopher Buckley “expressed great dismay” that Hannity would be receiving an award named after his father, and he successfully lobbied the Media Research Center to pull it.

Even more embarrassing for Hannity is the revelation in Tapper’s report that the MRC tried to work out a way for Hannity to save face by claiming that a scheduling conflict prevented him from attending this year’s awards ceremony.

Upon seeing the story pop up on CNN, Hannity took to Twitter to unleash an angry tirade against Tapper for reporting this humiliating turn of events.

“Hey Fake News Jake, I was offered an award, I was unable to attend, and I respectfully turned it down,” Hannity wrote. “If [National Review] ‘Never Trumpers’ or [Buckley’s] son were upset about me receiving the award, they never told me. Now I’m really glad I said ‘No thanks.'”

Hannity then went on to proclaim that “‘awards’ are BS” and that “the only ‘Award’ I care about is serving my audience, the support of my audience, and saving the USA.”

Trump’s racist attacks on Dem lawmakers are a test run in case he faces Kamala Harris in 2020: MSNBC contributor

Published

on

Speaking with host Alex Witt on Sunday afternoon, an MSNBC contributor speculated that Donald Trump's racist attack on four female Democrats -- none of whom are white -- was a test run to see how far he can go attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) should she be his opponent in the 2020 general election.

According to Democratic strategist Don Calloway, Trump may not have a grand strategy, but he's in "campaign mode" which brings out his barely concealed inner-racist.

"I'm not one to ascribe a strategy to the president when it's clear he's not a deep thinker, but he is, however, in campaign mode," he explained. "I see this as a good campaign device for him to gin up his base, fueled by the xenophobia and race-based hatred."

Here’s how lawyers enabling Trump’s obstruction can have their livelihoods stripped from them — by anyone

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, a former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives laid out a simple way to force lawyers advising aides to Donald Trump to defy Congressional subpoenas -- or avoiding one themselves -- to stop giving bad advice by moving to have them disbarred.

According to Brad Miller, who represented North Carolina in Congress between 2003 and 2013, the way in which former President Bill Clinton's impeachment was handled -- and the penalty he eventually received -- is a road map for legal retaliation even if Democrats in Congress won't do it.

Lara Trump snarls at critics of ‘send her back’ for pushing a ‘biased, racially-charged narrative’

Lara Trump, the wife of President Donald Trump's son Eric, has accused CNN anchor Anderson Cooper of pushing a "biased, racially-charged narrative" after he criticized her recent defense of the Trump administration over the "send her back" scandal.

This article first appeared on Salon.

"Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the “send her back” chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative. #FakeNews," Trump posted to her Twitter account on Saturday. She included a link to the Washington Examiner, a right-leaning newspaper which included a quote from Cooper blasting Trump for supposedly "lying" about her role in whipping up a crowd to chant "send her back" about Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
