Watch: Guest dumbfounded as Fox News host Melissa Francis calls Chelsea Clinton ‘hypocritical’ because of Monica Lewinsky and Benghazi

Published

Chelsea Clinton recently angered Republicans by saying that Donald Trump’s behavior “degrades what it means to be an American.”

A Fox News panel came back firing on Monday, as host Melissa Francis pushed back on Chelsea Clinton by pointing to scandals that happened when she was a child.

“Every time I hear a Clinton talk about degrading the office of the president I think about the office, and Monica Lewinsky and a cigar and I don’t know how much more, you know, it could be degraded,” Francis said of the consensual sex, which occurred when Chelsea Clinton was 15 years old. “As a woman when I hear them talk about dignity and respect and all these things—I just, sort of, I don’t know, it comes off as hypocritical.”

Guest Jon Summers, a Democratic strategist, sat dumbfounded during the rant.

Francis’s thoughts were echoed by GOP spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany  who opened referring to Trump as a “self-made billionaire.” (This is untrue: Trump inherited wealth, and analysts say he would have had more money had he simply played golf and invested his father’s money in an index fund.) She then said the comments were “insulting and they were absurd.”

“What’s degrading to Americans is Benghazi,” she said, referencing a debunked conspiracy theory. “That was degrading to Americans.”

She then said that Chelsea Clinton needed to look “inward.”

President Trump’s campaign of “maximum pressure” on Iran has hit an obstacle: Russia.

While the United States insists that Iran shot down a U.S. surveillance drone in international airspace last week, Russia rejected the charge on Tuesday and supported Iran’s claim that the Global Hawk drone with a 116-foot wingspan was shot down over Iranian territory.

A top Russian official stated Moscow’s intelligence findings at a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday, according to Haaretz, the Israeli daily.

2020 Election

How the GOP is embracing more ruthless power grabs in the face of huge political challenges

Published

on

On Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court is expected to rule on two cases highlighting the collision between partisan power grabs and setting the ground rules for two of the most important elections in America—those for U.S. House and state legislative chambers.

This article was produced by Voting Booth, a project of the Independent Media Institute.

One ruling concerns whether the Trump administration can add a question to the 2020 census that asks if anyone residing in that address is not a U.S. citizen. The other concerns whether hyper-partisanship is unconstitutional when state legislatures run by a single party draw electoral districts to maximize their party’s likelihood of winning elections.

Hope Hicks may have implicated Jared Kushner in a coverup

Published

on

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks frustrated Democrats last week when she refused to answer multiple questions about her time in the White House.

However, Mother Jones' David Corn and Dan Friedman noticed one bit of Hicks's testimony that shines a negative light on Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

When asked about her false statement in December 2016 that there had been no contact between members of the Trump campaign and Russian government officials, Hicks said she consulted several top officials who worked for the campaign before making the statement, including Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon -- and Jared Kushner.
