‘Cousin Huckabee’ looked like she was going walk out of WHCD as Michelle Wolf roasted her: CNN analysts

Published

on

Michelle Wolf’s raunchy routine during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner apparently caught some observers off guard.

The most talked about moment of the routine was Wolf’s brutal roast of White House spokesperson Sarah “Cousin Huckabee” Sanders, who took 90 seconds of dead-on abuse as she sat stone-faced.

The moment was apparently awkward for the White House reporters who go to see Sanders every day.

“It was actually pretty quiet in the room toward the end of Michelle Wolf’s appearance,” said CNN reporter Kaitlin Collins.

“I could not take my eyes off Sarah Sanders and other members of the White House press office,” said CNN reporter Kate Bennett. “Sarah actually physically shifted in her seat a couple times and for a second I thought she might actually get up and leave.”

“I wondered the exact same thing,” said CNN reporter Laura Jarrett. “I thought for a minute that somebody was going to get up and lead the charge to get out of here. It was uncomfortable. It was cringeworthy, I think, at best.”

After the event, an upset “Cousin Huckabee” was spotted in a hallway being consoled by Chris Christie.

A woman who identified herself as Sarah Sanders mom—but who is not verified as such by Twitter— complained about the routine on Twitter.

Papa Huckabee said on Twitter that he did not watch “the insufferable WHINE House Correspondent’s [sic] Dinner.” The former Arkansas governor clearly had not watched the event, because he referenced his daughter having to “pretend she was enjoying” it, when she did no such thing.

Jeffrey Epstein’s IT consultant reveals he saw girls who ‘couldn’t have more than 15 or 16’ on private island

Published

on

ABC News broke a story just after midnight Thursday about a former IT consultant of Jeffrey Epstein's who resigned because he couldn't take some of the things he was seeing on Epstein's private island compound.

The island, which has been called "pedophile island" by locals, had "topless women everywhere.

"There were photos of topless women everywhere," said contractor Steve Scully, who began working for Epstein in 1999 and continued for six years. "On his desk, in his office, in his bedroom."

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.
