‘Did somebody bill for that?’: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow cracks herself up after asking if Cohen billed Hannity for appearing on his show

Published

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Monday cracked herself up as she was reporting on the Sean Hannity-Michael Cohen bombshell.

“There’s been a lot of time and energy and ink spilled over the last 15 months or so over what the term ‘collusion’ actually means,” Maddow said. “But the allegations about Michael Cohen that are contained in the Christopher Steele dossier, the allegations that Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen met with Russian officials in Prague during the presidential campaign to facilitate payments to Kremlin-controlled hackers who were interfering in the election to help Trump—I don’t care how good you are at linguistic gymnastics, I think we could all agree that that would absolutely be collusion.”

Maddow explained the that the Steele dossier allegations are “just” allegations, but noted when Cohen wanted to refute the charges, he luckily “knew a guy.” She then rolled a clip of Hannity offering Cohen a platform to say he’d never been to Prague.

During that clip, Hannity attacked the media and declared journalism “dead.”

“I don’t mean to laugh, but it’s just, these people—I did an opening monologue just in the last segment how journalism is dead,” Hannity said “It’s buried.”

“Dead,” Maddow repeated. “It’s buried. Do you think that was a billable hour for Michael Cohen?”

“I mean, he has a meeting with Sean Hannity, right?” Maddow continued. “Sean Hannity meeting with his lawyer on national television without disclosing that the guy he was interviewing was actually his own lawyer. Did somebody bill for that? Journalism is dead.”

Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus

Published

on

On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.

"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."

The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was

Published

on

Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.

Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.

"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
