Hannity admits he ‘misspoke’ about age of sexual consent — then doubles down on attacks against ‘Fake Jake’ Tapper

Published

on

Reacting to allegations that Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore had “relationships” with a teen girls when he was in his 30’s, Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared to deflect criticisms on the former judge because he reportedly had sexual contact with a 14-year-old “consensually.”

Soon after, CNN’s Jake Tapper fact-checked him, saying that legally, 14-year-olds cannot consent to sexual contact.

In response, Hannity attacked Tapper, calling him “Lazy Fake Jake.”

During his show on Fox News later that night, Hannity claimed he “misspoke” about the age of consent — but then doubled down on his attacks against the CNN host by criticizing former President Barack Obama and praising himself for “reserving judgement.”

“One of the reasons I have been right and so many of my bratty friends in the media that are overpaid and lazy like fake Jake Tapper is they rush to judgement — I don’t,” Hannity said on-air. “Jake, listen to the whole two hours of my radio show tonight. It’s one of the reasons we have been more right than wrong.”

WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump

Published

on

Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.

In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

Trump plays ‘small ball’ because he can’t get a big hit on anything: Democratic Congressman

Published

on

Rep. Anthony Brown (D-MD) accused the president of being unable to hit a home run on any of the promises he made in 2016. Instead, he's playing "small ball."

Using a baseball metaphor, Brown explained that President Donald Trump isn't exactly the heavy hitter he wants to pretend he is.

"I think the president is playing political small-ball. He's a small-baller on the political field," said Brown in an MSNBC interview. "What I mean by that is he gets no big wins, home runs or base hits when it comes to health care and infrastructure or any other important policy matters that the American people have focused on."
