Watch: Fox News already prepping to spin the defeat of ‘Original Trump’ Saccone in Pennsylvania

Published

on

Conservatives are prepping to spin a possible Republican loss in a district President Trump won by 20 points in 2016.

Centrist Democrat Conor Lamb is facing ultra-conservative Rick Saccone in a special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th district, which has been reliably red for 15 years. Polling shows Lamb has an advantage, even after Trump flew in for a Saturday night rally and dispatched his son to campaign hard for Saccone, who aligns himself closely with Trump and who has called himself “the original Trump.”

On Outnumbered, panelists debated what Saccone’s possible loss means. David Avella, a GOP strategist, said that this election has nothing to do with Trump—but that Trump should take credit if Saccone pulls it out.

“What does the outcome of this election say about the president?” Avella was asked.

“It says people in PA-18 people are going to choose between Rick Saccone and Conor Lamb, and we shouldn’t look way much to into this,” he said. “Everybody wants to say this election is about President Trump but you just herd Conor Lamb say it’s not about Trump.”

Avella was then asked what happens if Saccone wins—should Trump take a victory lap?

“He absolutely should take a victory lap!” Avella said.

Avella has help spinning from fellow-panelist Lisa Boothe.

“Look, there are more registered Democrats in the district than Republicans,” she said. “Conor Lamb is a strong candidate, Rick Saccone isn’t. Look at some of the debates. He’s had some messy moments.”

Watch them spin below—but take some dramamine firat.

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
