Sarah Sanders flips out on ‘disgraced partisan hack’ James Comey during White House press briefing

Published

on

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday berated former FBI director James Comey as “a liar and a leaker.”

President Donald Trump’s top spokesperson insisted firing Comey was the right thing to do. She said his new book “belongs in the bargain bin of the fiction section.”

“Comey will forever be known as a disgraced partisan hack that broke his sacred trust with the president of the United States,” Sanders said. “One of the president’s great achievements will go down as firing James Comey.”

She later insisted Trump had respect for law enforcement and the rule of law, despite the president making public criticisms of his own Department of Justice nominees.

Sanders also attacked the media for allegedly “praising” Comey and “propping him up.”

“We shouldn’t be praising him we should be putting him down,” she added. “We should be taking him off of air.”

Before the press briefing, Trump had attacked Comey as an “untruthful slime ball” over his new book. Comey compared Trump to a mob boss and said Trump asked him whether Russians did have a video tape of him in a hotel room with prostitutes.

MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch shreds ‘pathetic circus figure’ Rudy Giuliani

MSNBC's Donny Deutsch shredded Rudy Giuliani as a "pathetic" clown for continuing to trade out what was left of his reputation to serve President Donald Trump.

Giuliani dismissed special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming congressional testimony, scheduled for July 17, as "totally useless," and "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough raked him over the coals.

"It's hard to believe this man ever ran a city like New York, let alone the fact that many people like myself consider him to be a very effect effective mayor," Scarborough said. "It's just a cynical, cynical, stupid thing for Rudy Giuliani to say."

2020 Election

Joe Biden’s ‘Jim Crow moment’ was dreadful — but he may be Democrats’ best shot at beating Trump

Published

on

The Democratic Party's presidential nomination and the White House are Joe Biden's to win — unless he sabotages himself.

Last Tuesday while speaking at a fundraising speech in New York, Biden reflected on his early career in the Senate, working alongside Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi and and Sen. Herman Talmadge of Georgia, a pair of old-line segregationists:

I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me 'boy,' he always called me 'son.' Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you're the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore.

"Yahya Jammeh treated Gambian women like his personal property," said US attorney Reed Brody of Human Rights Watch (HRW).

"But rape and sexual assault are crimes, and Jammeh is not above the law, and no woman is beneath it."
