The View shreds thrice-divorced Giuliani’s hypocritical attacks on Stormy: ‘Trump appeared in skin flicks!’

Published

on

The co-hosts of “The View” came together to trash Rudy Giuliani for questioning Stormy Daniels’ credibility because she had made a living as a pornographic actress.

Conservative Meghan McCain went first, saying she found the former porn actress highly credible in her claims against President Donald Trump — and she challenged the former New York City mayor’s own morality.

“We interviewed Stormy Daniels on the show, and James Comey and Michael Avenatti, all within a day of each other, and I found her by far the most credible and well spoken,” McCain said. “I want to say that first and foremost. There’s no reason anybody should question this woman’s credibility.”

McCain then listed the thrice-divorced Giuliani’s checkered marital history, which includes a marriage to his second cousin, and a years-long estrangement from his own children.

“Let’s come with a moral judgment on people’s industries,” McCain said.

McCain said she had written a book that had introduced her to a number of sex workers, and she’s stayed in touch with one — who sent a message in response to Giuliani’s slut-shaming insults.

“I was messaging her about this, and she said, ‘Sex work is work, and like any other business, it’s bad with laws criminalizing consensual, transactional sex,'” McCain said. “He sounds like the typical cheap ‘blank’ that can’t afford our services.”

Co-host Joy Behar said Trump’s lawyer had no standing to question someone for appearing in pornographic videos.

“I have a factoid, I didn’t even know this,” Behar said. “Apparently, in 1994, 2000 and 2002, Trump made cameo appearances in several soft-core ‘Playboy’ skin flicks — Trump himself. That’s what my research says. He appeared on a ‘Playboy’ cover in 1990, so Rudy, you better get your act together.”

‘This is how he gets us killed’: American Jews and allies horrified after Trump blurts out anti-Semitic trope

Published

on

President Donald Trump blurted out another anti-Semitic trope during his brief press availability Tuesday in the Oval Office.

Trump has been having a kind of holy war with Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), two of just three Muslim officials in Congress. When speaking to the press Tuesday, he claimed that Jews have no business supporting Democrats because they're anti-Semitic. But then he took it a step further.

After getting caught having sex with former congregants, Franklin Graham’s nephew launches new church based on ‘redemption’

Published

on

Tullian Tchividjian insists that when he had extra-marital affairs with congregants at his former church, they were "consensual" and not an abuse of power. Nevertheless, he's getting a second shot with the upcoming launch of his new church in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, The Christian Post reports.

“I don’t care what role a person has, a consensual relationship between two adults is not abuse. And some of these people will try to make the case that, ‘Well, because you’re in a position of authority, it is abuse,’” Tchividjian, who is the nephew of evangelical figurehead Franklin Graham and the grandson of famed evangelist Billy Graham, told the Palm Beach Post this weekend. “And I’ll go, ‘OK I can see how that has been and can be used by people in those positions.’ ... [But] that just was not true for me. I was not abusing my authoritative role to try and find women.”

Conservative columnist blasts GOP as ‘partisan hacks for whom hypocrisy is second-nature’

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump once again ripped into The Squad, this time to undercut an emotional press conference in which Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MN) described the conditions her Palestinian relatives live under.

“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears. I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long,” the president tweeted. “Now tears? She hates Israel and all Jewish people. She is an anti-Semite. She and her 3 friends are the new face of the Democrat Party. Live with it!”
