Watch Shep Smith’s awkward reaction after he’s blindsided by news that Hannity is Cohen’s secret client

Published

on

During the beginning of Fox News host Shepard Smith’s show on Monday, news broke that his colleague Sean Hannity was a client of Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Smith at first had little to say about the revelation.

“Let’s turn to Bob Bianci now, a defense attorney and former prosecutor — and we’ll get to the part that I’m sure you’re curious about in a minute when I have a little bit more information,” Smith said.

The Fox News host later said that producers were trying to get in touch with Hannity.

“We’ll report on it when we know the rest of it. A lot of people know his number.”

Eventually, Smith obtained a statement from Hannity’s publicist.

“We just spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they’ve been friends for a long time, he never denied that he he was his lawyer, that he did some legal work along the way, and that’s the extent of that,” Smith reported.

Trump’s ‘devastating’ internal polls are a red flag that he’s doomed in 2020: political analyst

Published

on

On Saturday, The Nation writer John Nichols told MSNBC that President Donald Trump's new internal polls showing him losing key states are "devastating" — and show why his path to re-election may be slipping out of his grasp.

"I would just emphasize these polls are more than a wake-up call. They're pretty devastating numbers," said Nichols. "We can get excited about a close race in Texas or even some good numbers out of Florida. But remember that for Donald Trump, the key is the Great Lakes states."

"What these internal polls tell us parallels what we're seeing from publicly done polling in those regions," said Nichols. "Two things very significant. Number one, there is an energized Democratic base, more energized, it appears, than 2016. And additionally one subset of this that's a really big deal, major issue for Trump, and that is that in the rural areas where Democrats severely underperformed in 2016, it's what we are seeing in the public polls and I suspect top line numbers from what we're seeing in other places suggest we're seeing rural areas begin to tick back up for Democrats going to that 40 percent number."

Trump perfectly trolled with Obama’s stock market success after president warns of crash without him

Published

Reporting on one of Donald Trump's Saturday tweets -- where the president darkly warned that the stock market would collapse if he is not re-elected -- a financial reporter for Bloomberg slyly pointed out that Trump financial successes since he became president are "middling" -- and that his predecessor was more successful.

According to Bloomberg's Roz Krasny, "President Donald Trump, gearing up for the official start of his 2020 campaign, warned that the U.S. would face an epic stock market crash if he’s not re-elected," noting his tweet stated, "The Trump Economy is setting records, and has a long way up to go....However, if anyone but me takes over in 2020 (I know the competition very well), there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before! KEEP AMERICA GREAT."

Sarah Sanders’ lies were worse than reported — here is how she got away with them

Published

on

In her tenure as White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders became legendary for her ability to lie at the podium.

But according to conservative commentator Andrew Egger, writing for The Bulwark, Sanders' real "success" for the Trump administration did not come from how frequently she lied — it came from the fact that most of her lies were boring.

"Her morose, plodding style and Bartlebyesque refusals to grant reporters a single inch of ground poured cold water on news cycle after news cycle that might otherwise have ignited," wrote Egger. "The downside, of course, was that she lied a lot. But even here she distinguished herself from [predecessor Sean] Spicer, whose sweaty, frantic tall tales—that was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period!—always invited heaps of instant ridicule. Deadpanning her way through boring, misleading briefing after boring, misleading briefing, Sarah Sanders managed to take most of the fun out of calling her out—as much of a victory as Trump could typically hope for, under the circumstances."
