Fox News host Jeanine Pirro opened her Saturday night show with an unhinged rant about the “haters” who will not stop discussing Donald Trump’s “wh*res and porn stars.”
“Despite a media focused on a whack-a-mole Russia collusion nonsense and the haters continuing to hate, the outsider president has thundered forward with his America first agenda,” she said. “And with a kryptonite-proof aura of invincibility, the 45th outsider president, often working without the support of his own party, has produced a GDP that no one thought possible.”
Pirro’s monologue focused on the success of the economy under Trump.
“The left doesn’t care about our economic success,” she said. “All they want to do is make noise. But it’s nothing more than background noise. White noise. The truth? No one is paying attention to them. [Trump’s] numbers continue to increase and his popularity just keeps going up.”
Pirro falsely claimed that Trump’s popularity is increasing—in fact, Trump’s polling numbers are “dismal.”
After he met with Putin and was accused of everything from collusion to treason—an offense punishable by death—his numbers continued to go up. When are they going to realize their yelling and screaming is nothing but a distraction? Nobody cares.”
We care about food on the table, paying the rent, the mortgage, paying for kids clothing for school. But no, they want to talk about whores and porn stars or a lawyer they are squeezing so tight he’ll confess to sinking the titanic.
Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’
President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.
And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.
But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.
Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:
McConnell warns Trump not to pass a stimulus deal before the election: report
According to a report from the Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told fellow Republicans this Tuesday that he warned the White House not to make a stimulus deal with Democrats before the election.
"McConnell suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not negotiating in good faith with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and any deal they reach could disrupt the Senate’s plans to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court next week," the Post reports.
As the Post points out, McConnell's stance risks dashing any hopes that a stimulus deal would be passed before November 3rd.
Legal analyst suggests ‘truth commission’ to bring the US back from Trumpism
“When a plane falls out of the sky, we don’t just shrug our shoulders and say, 'gravity has consequences'” wrote legal analyst Elie Mystal in his column for "The Nation" Tuesday.
After five years of dealing with President Donald Trump, Mystal thinks that the way to bring the United States back to normal is with a kind of "truth and reconciliation commission."
He recalled in 2009 when former President Barack Obama came into office he was asked if he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate George W. Bush's administration for the torture scandal and illegal detention.
