In the second half of an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, the co-hosts of “The View” began to politely question the hypocrisy of President Donald Trump and Pirro’s support of him.
They read off the title of Pirro’s new book “Liars, Leakers and Liberals,” which Republican Ana Navarro said she thought was a description of the White House.

Former federal prosecutor Sunny Hostin stepped in when she heard Pirro say that Hillary Clinton colluded with a foreign power to get dirt on Trump with Christopher Steele’s dossier.
“After Republicans paid for it,” Hostin said.
“No, no,” Pirro said, trying to claim no one in the GOP had anything to do with the dossier, which is factually inaccurate. The conservative news site The Washington Free Beacon paid for the dossier to investigate Trump until he became the nominee. It was then shopped around to see if anyone else wanted to pay for the research to continue.
But it wasn’t until Pirro accused co-host Whoopi Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome” that she lost her cool.
“Did you just point at me?” Goldberg asked.
“Yes,” Pirro responded.
“Listen, I don’t have Trump derangement. Let me tell you what I have,” Goldberg began. “I have a lot of — I’m tired of people starting a conversation with Mexicans are liars and rapists.”
She went on to say that after 62 years alive, she’s seen a lot of people come and go from the White House, some of whom she liked and others she did not.
“I have never, ever seen anything like this,” she continued. “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive. And I — and clearly you don’t watch the show. So, you don’t know that I don’t suffer from that. What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That’s my issue. But one of the things that you talk about a lot, and I’m curious about it is the deep state.”
Pirro said she wanted to answer Goldberg’s question, but Goldberg said she didn’t ask one.
“Your opening statement, how horrible it is that Donald Trump is talking about all of these people,” Pirro began.
“I’m sorry, that’s not what I said,” Goldberg said.
“You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!” Pirro ranted.
“What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people,” Goldberg shouted back. “Say good-bye. I’m done.”
She quickly threw it to commercial. When she came back, Goldberg apologized, saying she rarely loses her cool, but gets really bothered when someone accuses her of “being hysterical because I try not to do it on this show.”

How Teach for America evolved into an arm of the charter school movement
When the Walton Family Foundation announced in 2013 that it was donating $20 million to Teach For America to recruit and train nearly 4,000 teachers for low-income schools, its press release did not reveal the unusual terms for the grant.
Documents obtained by ProPublica show that the foundation, a staunch supporter of school choice and Teach For America’s largest private funder, was paying $4,000 for every teacher placed in a traditional public school — and $6,000 for every one placed in a charter school. The two-year grant was directed at nine cities where charter schools were sprouting up, including New Orleans; Memphis, Tennessee; and Los Angeles.

Here are 5 reasons why 2020’s down-ballot races could reshape America’s future
The political press always tends to focus mostly on the marquee race for the White House but that's especially true this cycle, as Donald Trump runs for a second term. He demands attention and his antics enrage his opponents and delight his supporters in equal measure.
But national reporters risk missing the big picture by centering so much of their reporting at the top when many of the most important political battles in 2020 will take place further down the ballot.
Trump is catnip for reporters and their editors, but the dearth of coverage of downballot races didn't begin with his election. As the news media in general faces structural changes—with print circulation declining and much of their work moving into digital spaces that are more difficult to monetize--publishers have cut back on reporters assigned to the state and local government beat. Nevertheless, Trump has arguably worsened the trend by getting so much airtime— one estimate suggested that over the past four years, Trump has taken up, on average, 15 percent of the entire daily news cycle on the three leading cable networks, nearly three times what Obama did.
