While all of the cable news show hosts were obsessed on Friday morning with reading excerpts from fired FBI Director James Comey’s book, one of the co-hosts of President Donald Trump’s favorite Fox News morning show made a not-too-subtle suggestion to the president on how to make talk of Comey’s revelations go away.
Speaking with Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera, Fox and Friends’ host Ainsley Earhardt proposed a military intervention in Syria could become the talk of the day should the president choose to act immediately.
Sitting between co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, Earhardt made her suggestion.
“If the president, and France, and the UK decide to strike Syria, don’t you think that story would be a bigger story than Comey’s book that’s going to be released on Tuesday?” Earhardt asked.
Speaking remotely, Rivera, paused due to transmission problem before taking the bait.
“I think that the United States, the United Kingdom, and France certainly have the military wherewithal,” Rivera replied. “Indeed, the United States could do it on its own, strike Syria, strike [President Bashar] Assad’s resources, military assets, in retaliation for the gas attack, the horrifying gas attack that the president was so righteously revolted by. I mean, we all were.”

Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
White nationalist Republican ridiculed after only 2 people show up for his town hall meeting
Embattled Rep. Steve King (R-IA) suffered further humiliation on Saturday when only two people showed up for his town hall meeting with Iowa constituents.
King, who was stripped of all committee assignments for his white nationalism, was been an embarrassment for Republicans with his constant racism and misogyny.
A photo of the town hall meeting was posted on Twitter by Reuters photo editor Corinne Perkins.
Rep. King was quickly mocked in the comments.
Here's some of what people were saying:
Democrats could flip the Texas state house in 2020 — and reshape the national map
Blue Texas? Democrats have long dreamt of winning Texas’s 38 electoral votes in the presidential election. That may still be a long shot, but a recent “Texodus” from Congress has given new talk to a political transformation across the Lone Star State that could have massive ramifications down the ballot and for decades to come.
Four of the state’s GOP members of Congress have announced their retirements in recent weeks, an unusual torrent of departures signaling that a storm is coming. And evidence shows that it’s not just hitting Texas’s federal delegation. It’s coming to Austin, too.
