‘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.

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

Published

ABC News reporter Kyra Phillips on Saturday heaped praise on President Donald Trump for his treatment of the press.

Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
