Fox News panel batters Sarah Sanders’ ‘credibility’ for refusing to own up to making a false statement: ‘It needs to be dealt with’

Published

on

In a surprisingly critical segment on Media Buzz — the Fox News show covering the media — host Howie Kurtz and his guests took White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders to task for refusing to acknowledge she gave  reporters false information when discussing a meeting at Trump Tower in 2016.

Host Kurtz called out Sanders for refusing “to even engage or acknowledge the question” asked by reporter Josh Dawsey who cited a statement from Donald Trump’s lawyers that the president personally dictated a response to the meeting currently under investigation — completely contradicting Sanders’ previous comments.

Panelist and Federalist editor Mollie Hemingway only lightly defended Sanders.

“Last year she specifically said Trump didn’t dictate the letter,” Hemingway recalled. “The attorney’s letter said he did. That is something that needs to be dealt with.”

“No one begrudges her for having had false information,” Hemingway said. “And it’s not a big deal whether the president dictated this letter or not. But something needs to be done to restore credibility when you have said something that’s not true, and I’m surprised that they don’t have a better way of cleaning that up.”

Andrew McCabe rains hell on ‘insanely stupid’ Trump in epic rant before calling for impeachment hearings

Published

on

Appearing on CNN's "New Day" on Thursday morning, former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe unleashed hell on President Donald Trump for launching yet another unprovoked attack on him, saying the president says lots of "stupid things."

On Wednesday evening, the president smeared McCabe, with Trump calling him "terrible" and saying he couldn't do anything -- including go to the bathroom -- without former FBI Director James Comey's permission.

Given a chance to respond by CNN's John Berman, McCabe didn't hold back.

"You know, I've been listening to the president say insanely stupid things for years now about me personally, about my organization, and about the investigation, we undertook to find out if the president posed a threat to national security," McCabe began. "I won't get down in the weeds with the president and exchange insults on Twitter or TV or anywhere else, but the question we should be asking is: why do we have a president who feels necessary to attack individuals? Individuals -- private citizens, individuals who serve in our government -- to attack personally when he's scared of the truth that they have to offer."

‘Come heavily armed’: Oregon GOP lawmaker threatens state troopers over dispute with Dem governor

Published

on

On Wednesday, The Oregonian reported that GOP state Sen. Brian Boquist threatened to kill state troopers if they try to keep him in the Senate chamber to debate climate change legislation.

"I'm quotable, so here's the quote. This is what I told the [police] superintendent," said Boquist to reporters outside the Senate chamber. "Send bachelors and come heavily armed. I'm not going to be a political prisoner in the state of Oregon. It's just that simple."

Democratic Gov. Kate Brown has made passing a climate change bill one of her top priorities. While Democrats control Oregon's legislature, Senate Republicans have enough votes to block legislation by walking out and denying a quorum — which they have done to stonewall this legislation.

Impressionism’s ‘forgotten woman’ shines in new Paris show

Published

on

The first major show of Berthe Morisot's paintings in France in nearly 80 years puts the forgotten woman of Impressionism back at the centre of the movement she helped found.

One damning review of the first exhibition by the group that would revolutionise art blasted that it was no more than "five or six lunatics of which one is a woman ...[whose] feminine grace is maintained amid the outpourings of a delirious mind."

That 1874 show included such soon-to-be art giants as Monet and Manet, whose brother Eugene later married Morisot.
