Fox News host blisters ‘shameless’ Michael Cohen for pay-to-play cash grab: Pay back your ‘swamp fees and apologize’

Published

on

Fox News anchor and former top strategist for the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom, Steve Hilton, demanded an apology from Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen on Saturday.

Writing for Fox, Hilton praised Trump’s rhetoric against pay-to-play politics.

“It was all captured in one phrase that came to define the 2016 campaign’s epic battle between the populist insurgent and the corrupt Clinton machine and all it represented: Drain the Swamp!” the Tory argued. “Contrary to what his critics would have you believe, since his inauguration President Trump has delivered on many of his Drain the Swamp promises, including tough new rules on lobbying.”

In Hilton’s thinking, all of Trump’s progress is being undermined by his own attorney.

“Cohen was reported this week to have touted himself to a number of giant global corporations as someone who could give them an inside track with the new Trump administration,” he noted. “But the real damage here is not to the reputation of AT&T or Novartis – it’s to President Trump and his entire Drain the Swamp crusade.”

“Did Cohen even listen to what Donald Trump was saying on the campaign trail?” Hilton asked. “What part of Drain the Swamp did Cohen not understand?”

“By cashing in on his connection to the president to help giant global corporations, Cohen insulted every single Trump voter,” he argued. “Here’s what needs to happen: Cohen must apologize, pay back his swamp fees and tell us who else he pitched his services to. We need to see the full list of the “select few companies” he reportedly offered to help.”

Hilton concluded that “there has to be a proper reckoning for the damage Cohen has done with his cynical, shameless behavior.”

Trump busted for acting like the Saudi’s ‘press secretary’ after Florida naval yard shooting

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot blasted President Donald Trump for essentially becoming a "press secretary" for the Saudi Arabian government in wake of the Pensacola, Florida mass shooting.

In his column Sunday, Boot noted that the typical mass shooting sentiments like "thoughts and prayers" were absent Friday when Trump discovered that the shooting was done by a Muslim.

"It turns out that Trump actually has a triple standard, because he treats attacks by Saudis differently than those from other Muslim nations," Boot observed. "On Friday, a Saudi air force officer studying at the Naval Air Station Pensacola shot dead three Americans and wounded eight others. Instead of expressing outrage or vowing vengeance, or even waiting for all the facts to come in, Trump sounded as if he were auditioning for the job of press secretary at the Saudi Embassy."

McConnell blocked by his own party from calling impeachment witnesses Trump wants for Senate trial: report

Published

on

According to a report from the New York Times, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is finding his hands tied by members of his own party who are skeptical over the appropriateness of calling some of the witnesses Donald Trump  -- and a few of his House Republican enablers  -- want to appear.

As the Times notes, "While Democrats who control the House are focused on a swift impeachment vote by year’s end, the White House is almost entirely consumed by the trial that would follow in the Republican-controlled Senate, where Mr. Trump’s team believes he would have the chance to defend himself and where Democrats would almost certainly fall short of the two-thirds vote they would need to remove him from office."

Published

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin in publically shamed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his conversion from Cold War Russia critic to unabashed "Putin stooge" after his performance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

Speaking with NBC host Chuck Todd on Sunday, Cruz attempted to push what has been described as Kremlin propaganda, asserting that "there is evidence of Ukraine interference in our election because an op-ed was written criticizing Trump’s campaign rhetoric about Ukraine."
