D.L. Hughley goes off on Trump’s ‘ridiculous’ staff hires: ‘He has wife beaters — why not a drug dealer?’

Political commentator and comedian D.L. Hughley slammed President Donald Trump during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House.

Host Nicole Wallace noted the latest reports that White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson prescribed a “large supply of Percocet” to a White House staffer.

“He has wife beaters, he had people that abused women on his staff, why not a drug dealer?” Hughley asked. “I mean, like literally.”

“The serious part of your point is they don’t vet anyone,” Wallace interjected.

“Here’s the serious part of my point,” Hughley continued. “Two weeks ago we had a president saying we will — we should, put drug dealers to death.”

“It’s a good thing he didn’t, because he’d be short a doctor,” he suggested. “It’s ridiculous.”

“If you told Donald Trump his lawn looked nice, he would make you Secretary of the Interior,” Hughley predicted. “It’s ridiculous that we’re running a country like it is — like it’s ‘The Apprentice.’ He doesn’t vet anybody.”

“That’s how he’s doing it,” Wallace agreed.

“I watched him build a temporary monument to the people, to the victims of the opioid crisis,” Hughley noted. “You know what black people, what people on crack, got build for them? Prisons.”

Hughley also criticized President Trump for allegedly not practicing safe sex.

“I watched Stormy Daniels say the President of the United States had unprotected sex with her,” Hughley noted. “If you’re a 60-year-old man and you don’t care about gonorrhea, how can you worry about North Korea?”

“That’s the most disturbing part of that story? Not getting spanked by the magazine?” Wallace asked.

“You’re 60 years old and you’re playing craps with your sexual organs?” Hughley replied. “That’s a mistake young football players make!”

Some of the most powerful Texas House Republicans said Monday they no longer support GOP Speaker Dennis Bonnen, marking the biggest blow yet to his political future amid the fallout from a secret recording released last week by a hardline conservative activist.

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.

The faith of Fox News: How the network’s propaganda warps viewers’ sense of reality

Published

on

A longtime sticking point among Fox News employees is their insistent differentiation between its news division, where employees practice actual journalism, and its opinion division, where employees practice actual nativism, spew misinformation, and have been actively campaigning for Donald Trump’s re-election since 2016.  Inside the organization, they claim to believe that the news side is separate from the opinion side, and insist that the audience can tell the difference.

News anchor Shepard Smith once characterized comparing the two as “apples and teaspoons.”
