‘Sessions has a VERY weak position on Clinton crimes’: Trump issues new loyalty test to attorney general

Published

on

President Donald Trump has made clear to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he must launch an investigation of Hillary Clinton to keep his job.

The president has been attacking Sessions, the first Republican senator to endorse his campaign, for days since expressing anger in a New York Times interview about the attorney general’s decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

Trump asked Monday why the “beleaguered” Sessions and congressional investigators weren’t probing Clinton’s “crimes & Russia relations,” and he sharpened his attack Tuesday morning in a series of tweets.

Trump was referring to reports that Ukrainian government officials helped reporters and Clinton allies look into Trump and his team’s ties to Russia, which the president’s nominee for FBI director, Christopher Wray, has said he’s willing to investigate.

The president appeared to be asking Sessions to demonstrate his loyalty by opening a new investigation of Clinton’s actions during the campaign, which Trump promised to do repeatedly on the campaign trail — which supporters usually punctuated with chants of “lock her up.”

Trump considered nominating McCabe, who took over as interim director after the president fired James Comey for apparently flunking a loyalty test, as FBI director before moving on to Wray.

Andrew Cuomo threatens to bail on CNN interview when his brother shows vintage photo of governor in bellbottoms

Published

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) appeared to feign anger during a CNN interview Wednesday in which his brother, Christopher Cuomo, showed a vintage photo of their family with the elder brother clad in bellbottoms, a rhinestone belt and an unfortunate attempt at an afro.

The younger Cuomo is still suffering from the effects of coronavirus, appearing redfaced and wiping his brow. However, his brother noted that he seemed more animated than he has in days.

"Now I've seen you referred to a little bit recently as the 'Love Gov' and I'm wondering if that's making you a little soft on the president, that you don't want to really criticize him, because you need him and now's not a time for fighting," said the younger Cuomo. "But don't you have to balance that with calling him out if he's doing things that you don't think are great for the people of your state to be hearing and experiencing? Love Gov?"

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.
