Florida attorney general slammed for ‘auditioning’ to be a Fox News host while still in office

Published

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is receiving criticism at home for “auditioning” for Fox News while serving in elected office.

The Miami Herald reports that the Republican A.G. flew to New York City for three days of hosting “The Five” on the cable television network.

“Call it an audition of sorts for Bondi, who wraps up her two terms as attorney general in January. Cable television is often considered one of several potential landing spots for Bondi, according to her friends and political allies,” the Herald reported.

One Fox News personality even publicly praised Bondi for the tryout.

“While at Fox News studios, she also appeared on Sean Hannity’s show. Hannity congratulated Bondi on the co-hosting position,” the Herald noted.

In a statement to the Tampa Bay Times, Fox News claimed that the Florida Commission on Ethics, “cleared Pam Bondi to appear as a co-host of The Five and travel to New York.”

Fox News did not respond to the Herald‘s request to list any precedent for an elected official hosting a show on the network.

With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.

Published

Olexander Scherba, who currently serves as Ukraine's ambassador to Austria, sent out a scathing tweet on Friday excoriating allies of President Donald Trump who seem hellbent on helping Russian President Vladimir Putin reassert Russia's dominance over Eastern Europe.

In his tweet, Scherba explained the scope of Putin's ambitions, which he said went far beyond seizing Ukrainian territory.

"Putin isn’t just fighting Ukraine," he wrote. "He is fighting the whole world order, created by Reagan."

The ambassador then turned his attention to American supporters of President Donald Trump who have been cheering Putin's actions.
