Fox News host Jeanine Pirro melts down over ‘her hero’ Trey Gowdy for ‘going to the dark side’

Published

Republican Trey Gowdy is the latest Republican to feel the wrath of hardened Trumpistas.

The South Carolina congressman was a hero to the Tea Party when he was leading the Benghazi investigation.

But on Wednesday, the former federal prosecutor made the uncontroversial statement that the FBI did what it “should have done” and that informants such as the one used by the FBI used to talk to the Russia-connected aides in Trump’s campaign was done “all day, every day by law enforcement.”

And that has caused a meltdown by other rightwing extremists, such as Fox News host Jeanine Pirro who dedicated the opening of her Saturday night show to bashing Gowdy with three of his fellow Tea Partiers: Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan and Ron DeSantis.

They all said they liked Gowdy, before this.

“He is, in fact, one of my hereos,” Pirro said. “I don’t know if he went to the dark side or what.”

The men all agreed they need to protect Trump, even suggesting that maybe Hillary Clinton’s campaign should be investigated.

“We need McConnell and Paul Ryan to put on their big boy pants,” Pirro said. “They’re a bunch of fraudsters right now.”

Five Republicans considered senior members of the lower chamber issued a statement withdrawing support for him: State Reps. Four Price of Amarillo, Dan Huberty of Houston, Lyle Larson of San Antonio, Chris Paddie of Marshall and John Frullo of Lubbock.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.

The faith of Fox News: How the network’s propaganda warps viewers’ sense of reality

Published

on

A longtime sticking point among Fox News employees is their insistent differentiation between its news division, where employees practice actual journalism, and its opinion division, where employees practice actual nativism, spew misinformation, and have been actively campaigning for Donald Trump’s re-election since 2016.  Inside the organization, they claim to believe that the news side is separate from the opinion side, and insist that the audience can tell the difference.
