‘You’re bitter and you’re angry’: Fox News host slams failed GOP Senate candidate now running as spoiler

Published

on

After scaring both Democrats and Republicans with his racist campaign ads in the West Virginia Republican primary, Senate candidate Don Blankenship has announced that he’ll run as an independent.

This development didn’t sit well with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, who invited Blankenship on his show Wednesday. West Virginia is Trump country, and Republican voters there took Trump’s advice and didn’t send him through to the general election.

“Why you doing this?” Cavuto asked to open the fiery interview.

Cavuto went on to tell Blankenship that he was going to be a spoiler and take votes away from Republicans, which Blankenship denied, railing against the establishment of both parties.

“You were running for the Republican nomination. Now it just seems that after failing to get it, coming in third, you’re bitter and you’re angry,” Cavuto said.

“They didn’t run on the facts, they ran on what Fox News and other said I was a felon,” said Blankenship, who was technically convicted of a misdemeanor.

“You don’t call yourself a sore loser? You’re not a sore, bitter loser,” Cavuto asked.

Ex-GOP senator hammers lawmakers quaking in their boots out of fear of Trump: ‘Why are you there?’

Appearing on CNN on Wednesday morning, retired Sen. William Cohen (R-ME) hammered members of his own party still sitting in the Senate who refuse to take on Donald Trump, saying they are failing the country and themselves by standing by in fear.

Speaking with CNN hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto, Cohen said kowtowing to the president is nothing new, but has grown worse over the past ten years.

"Some of it has to do with external pressures, that of social media, talk radio, specific channels that have a particular view and then hammer that view home to the constituents who then pressure the members of Congress," he explained. "But you have to ask yourself: Why are you a senator? Why are you there? Are you acting out of sheer fear that if you speak up and take a position that's controversial you'll be punished?"

Legal experts speculate Bill Barr was merely ‘nonsense posturing’ when he claimed Trump’s tweets made his job ‘impossible’

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr recently complained that President Donald Trump makes it “impossible” for him to do his job when he tweets about cases that are still making their way through the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the federal courts — for example, the criminal case of long-time Trump ally and veteran GOP operative Roger Stone. But Barr remains a Trump loyalist, and Law & Crime reporter Jerry Lambe notes in an article published on February 25 that Trump continues to tweet about Stone’s case.

Adam Schiff explains how Trump just crippled US election security with appointment of ‘loyalist’ intel director

Published

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) warned on Wednesday that election security in the United States is in jeopardy due to President Donald Trump's choice for acting director of national intelligence.

CNN's Manu Raju asked Schiff about the appointment of Richard Grenell as the nation's top intelligence coordinator.

"He has little to no relevant experience except for being a Trump loyalist," Schiff noted. "And the level of confidence that we can have that we will get fully informed of threats to our elections has just gone down to practically none."

Grenell, who currently serves as the ambassador to Germany, has come under fire from Democrats for possibly violating federal law after he "failed to inform the department about work he did for foreign entities before joining the Trump administration," according to CBS News.
