In the wake of the revelation that the president’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen also represents Fox News host Sean Hannity, The Late Show‘s Stephen Colbert pieced together a hilarious fake intro to the Trump-loving anchor’s Monday night show.
“The Late Show has acquired a sneak peek of tonight’s Hannity,” the clip’s teaser reads before launching into the fake intro segment regarding the day’s news.
“This is a Fox News alert,” Hannity said in the clip. “President Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen is my attorney and I defended him right here on this program.”
“Can anybody say conflict of interest?” he host asks in the mashup before saying that “Fox News has largely ignored” their unethical lack of disclosure.

Trump goes after Fox News’ Chris Wallace after Shep Smith departure

Friday, longtime Fox newsman Shep Smith was officially released from his contract, at his request and fellow Fox staffers are warning it's only the beginning. But now, it seems the president is seeing his sights on ridding the network of anyone who doesn't parrot his policies, politics, talking points or dares to fact-check him.
Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit
Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.
Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."
While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
