Jeanine Pirro is one of Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters, and has defended even his most controversial decisions and statements on her Saturday night Fox News show.
But Jeanine Pirro is now deeply concerned by America’s coarsening dialogue after Sarah Huckabee Sanders was thrown out of a restaurant in Virginia.
Pirro is deeply, deeply offended by the “outrageous” decision for a private business owner to refuse to serve someone who they had moral qualms about.
“Has the left really lost its collective mind?” she said. “It’s come to this? No more civil discourse? What’s happening in this country right now is beyond anything we’ve ever seen in American politic. Political debate, at the very heart of the founding of this country, has devolved into political harassment and outright political abuse. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, one of the most prestigious in Washington, D.C., out to dinner, places her order and then is told to leave by the owner because she works for the president of the United States.”
Pirro then talked about Kirstjen Nielsen being forced out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington by Democratic Socialists chanting at her.
“Trump supporters are being harassed all over this country buy a hysterical left unwilling to accept the decision, and the will of the American people who put Donald Trump in office. These unhinged leftists are normalizing outrageous behavior which is only getting worse.
Julian Assange in UK court outburst over distance from lawyers
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Wednesday briefly disrupted his extradition hearing in Britain to complain about being forced to sit away from his lawyers.
The 48-year-old Australian stood up and launched an impromptu courtroom address from inside the glass-panelled dock of the court during the third day of the hearing, being held in southeast London.
"I can't speak to my lawyers with any proper confidentiality," he complained, noting microphones near the dock could pick up conversations.
"I can't ask, I can't instruct them," added Assange, wearing a grey blazer and a sweater over a collared shirt and seated between two guards.
Google pledges new $10 billion investment in US in 2020
Google said Wednesday it would invest more than $10 billion in US offices and data centers in 2020, including its new campus planned for New York City and projects in 10 other states.
The pledge comes on top of some $22 billion invested by the US tech giant unit over the past two years.
"These investments will create thousands of jobs -- including roles within Google, construction jobs in data centers and renewable energy facilities, and opportunities in local businesses in surrounding towns and communities," said a blog post by Sundar Pichai, chief executive of Google parent Alphabet.
Devin Nunes’ income called into question as watchdog asks for investigation of his finances
According to a report from the Fresno Bee,the non-partisan Campaign Legal Center is requesting a federal investigation into whether U.S. Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) is receiving legal services in violation of House ethics rules.
Over the past year, the conservative Republicans has launched a handful of lawsuits against critics -- including the McClatchy newspaper chain and a person on Twitter purporting to be one of his cows.
According to the Bee, "The complaint says Nunes appears to be in 'blatant violation of House rules,' because he would have trouble paying for all these lawsuits solely from his congressional salary of $174,000 per year. The group argues he’d only be able to pay if he received legal services for free, at a discounted rate, or based on a contingency fee, meaning the lawyer would get compensated from Nunes’ winnings if he prevails in his lawsuits."
