As the nation faces a massive cultural shift and woman across the country come forward with their stories of rape, harassment and abuse, Fox News pundit Laura Ingraham worries that the real victims are going to be “this season’s Christmas parties.”
ShareBlue.com reported that Ingraham believes that a heightened awareness of the dynamics of sexual assault and harassment is going to take all the “fun” out of the season.
“Is the #MeToo movement becoming a spoiler for this season’s Christmas parties?” Ingraham asked comedian Jimmy Failla.
Citing some companies’ decision to limit alcohol consumption at professional gatherings, Ingraham said, “I can see this year it might be — a little less festive, let’s say that. No alcohol and no fun and no lampshades and, I don’t know, maybe that’s better.”
“Is this just killing all the fun of Christmas?” she demanded.
“The segment would be wholly inappropriate on any network, but it’s especially galling given Fox News’ own sordid history with workplace sexual harassment,” wrote Caroline Orr. “Several of the most prominent men employed by Fox News have been forced out in the past two years over allegations of workplace sexual assault and harassment, including founder and former CEO Roger Ailes, along with hosts Bill O’Reilly and Eric Boiling.”

Right-wingers have a full-blown freakout over Kavanaugh revelations — and it could blow up in their faces
Do Republicans think “men are the real victims of sexism” is a winning argument going into the 2020 election? That sounds preposterous, but there are strong indications that Donald Trump and other leading Republicans believe they can win by feeding a “victim mentality” in men, a mentality they otherwise tend to decry when detected in actual victims.
On Sunday, the New York Times published an article by the authors of a new book about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, introducing more corroborating evidence for claims that Kavanaugh had a history throughout high school and college of getting trashed and then sexually abusing his female classmates. That story, almost a year after Kavanaugh’s momentous confirmation hearings, was interesting further evidence that Kavanaugh likely perjured himself before the Senate. Ultimately, it doesn’t really change anything, since there’s little reason to believe that anyone actually believed Kavanaugh was telling the truth at the time.
Air Force admits it ‘would’t be surprised’ if they were ‘Trump Turnberry’s largest customer’
The Air Force has not only been staying at Trump's resorts for three years, but they were also likely the largest customer of Trump's Scottish golf club.
Washington Post reporters David Fahrenthold and Jonathan O'Connell outed President Donald Trump for working his official relationship with the Saudi royal family so they'd stay at his hotels. Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand uncovered the fact that the U.S. Air Force was being used to funnel cash to the president's companies.
Trump's Turnberry resort was losing money until he was able to reroute Air Force plans to land in Scotland to refuel instead of a military base. While that might cost American taxpayers significantly more money, it was good business for the president. Now the resort is doing extremely well.
CNN commentators laugh at GOP strategist’s pathetic rationale for why Trump’s Hispanic comments aren’t racist
On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," Mitch McConnell adviser and GOP strategist Scott Jennings offered a feeble defense of President Donald Trump's demand of his Hispanic adviser Steve Cortes at a rally in New Mexico that he say whether he prefers "the country or the Hispanics"
"Of course it masks racism, and he doesn't do a good job of masking it," said Democratic strategist Maria Cardona. "These comments were racist, ignorant and downright stupid. We shouldn't be surprised from what we've seen this president spew, from the moment he came down the escalator when he announced his campaign when he called Mexicans rapists and murderers and what else can we expect from this man? ... In the latest Univision/Latino Decisions poll, you have 71 percent of Latinos who said they will vote for the democratic candidate. 15 percent maybe will vote for Trump. He's in dire straits for Latinos."
