Donald Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, teamed up to host Sean Hannity’s radio show on Friday as the Fox News host took a day off.
The two lawyers discussed their client’s case on the air, something that Former Federal Prosecutor Southern District New York Mimi Rocah called the development “stunning.”
“I think Giuliani has been skirting the line, and, in my opinion, has now gone over the line in violating the rules of professional conduct as a lawyer,” she said.
Host Chris Hayes said that Giuliani has made it clear he views this as an “entirely a political proceeding and not a legal one.”
That won’t matter, said Rocah.
If Giuliani has violated he could face discipline by the bar, possibly even disbarment.
“He is saying that, but he is a lawyer,” she said. “He still needs to abide by the rules.”
Seth Meyers hilariously ridicules Trump for not knowing the Constitution: ‘Article II — nobody’s ever seen it before’
After a long vacation, late-night shows returned to bring some levity to the difficulty of the news cycle. Such was the case when "Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed President Donald Trump for not knowing The Constitution that well.
"Number one: there's no crime. And how do you obstruct when there's no crime?" Trump asked during a brief statement Friday. Martha Stewart would take issue with that statement.
"Also take a look at one other thing. It's a thing called Article II. Nobody ever mentions Article II. It give me all these rights at a level nobody has ever seen before. We don't even talk about Article II," Trump said.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow shows what Trump was trying to distract from with his latest racist attacks
On Monday night, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow unpacked a number of critically important news stories that have been largely lost in the shuffle amid outrage over President Donald Trump's racist attacks on Democratic congresswomen — stories that could be critically important in coming weeks, and problematic for the president, but that he doubtless was grateful didn't dominate the cycle.
First, Maddow noted, there was "what they announced in terms of changes to asylum law ... maybe this president's most radical effort to change laws along racial lines since the Muslim ban that he tried to implement as soon as he got into office. It's part of a larger mosaic in terms of how the president is running and using race to get himself reelected." The law would ban any migrants from receiving asylum if they failed to apply for asylum in any country they passed through, which would be impractical or ineffective for many of them.
‘White nationalists will never love you’: Hispanic Trump supporter goes down in flames during CNN debate
CNN's Anderson Cooper struggled to control a segment about President Donald Trump's racism while interviewing a former member of Trump’s Hispanic Advisory Council.
Cooper interviewed Steve Cortes about the president's racists outburts at the four young women of color in Congress that are known collectively as "The Squad."
The host read the dictionary definition of a demagogue.
"A leader that makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises to gain power," Merrian-Webster published.
"Is Donald Trump a demagogue? Isn’t this exactly what he is doing here?" Cooper asked.
