CNN’s Rick Santorum blasts SCOTUS pick: ‘Trump bowed to the elite in Washington’

Rick Santorum

On Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) said on CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he wasn’t impressed with President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh.

He said that President Trump’s choice shows that he “bowed to the elite in Washington.”

“Well, I think that Donald Trump said he was going to energize the base with this pick. I don’t think he did that. I think a lot of the folks at the base really were sort of turned off to Brett Kavanaugh for the same reasons you discussed a few minutes ago,” Santorum said.

He continued: “He is from Washington. He is the establishment pick. He is the Bush pick. His father was a judge. His mother was a judge. It just seems like Trump in this case just bowed to the elite in Washington. I think that’s going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. I don’t think it’s going to be a game changer.”

As a fact-check, Kavanaugh’s father, Everett Kavanaugh Jr., is a retired attorney, and was never appointed as a judge.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

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.

News anchor Shepard Smith once characterized comparing the two as “apples and teaspoons.”
