On Wednesday, Fox News host Shepard Smith disputed President Donald Trump’s suggestion that the nuclear threat presented by the North Korean regime has been largely neutralized.
Following the summit in Singapore, President Trump made some questionable claims about his alleged diplomatic victory.
“There’s no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong-un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future,” the President said.
Smith begged to differ.
“Well, obviously part of that is not right. The nuke threat is very real. The joint statement both President Trump and dictator Kim Jong-un signed yesterday failed to lay out how North Korea will give up their nukes,” he said.
“Or how the U.S. and its allies will check to make sure that North Korea is keeping up its end of the bargain. The North Koreans haven’t admitted what they have, much less when and how they’ll supposedly get rid of them. A clear reading of the facts indicate the president made concessions in return for nothing concrete.”
The View audience goes wild when Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman get schooled on democratic socialism
Both conservatives on "The View" warned of the dangers of democratic socialism, but co-host Joy Behar drew a rowdy response with her impassioned defense of wealth distribution.
The panelists were discussing Sen. Elizabeth Warren's climb in the polls, and Meghan McCain speculated about the possibility of the Massachusetts Democrat heading into a contested Democratic convention with Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
"I happen to love Elizabeth Warren," Behar said. "I think she would make a magnificent president, and I think this whole talk about she's too far to the left is a lot of hooey, frankly."
Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump
In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.
Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.
Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond
In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.
As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
