Fox News host Jeanine Pirro opened her Saturday night show with a broad condemnation of President Barack Obama’s “full-throttle savage attack” on Donald Trump.
“It has never happened in the history of this country, an ex-president viciously attacking his successor, trashing our commander-in-chief, his party, and all those Americans who put him in the Oval Office,” Pirro said.
“Donald Trump is one of the biggest threats to our democracy?” Pirro said. “How dare you! This man is the president of the United States, someone we put in office, and he is to be respected!”
“If you’re a patriot and you like the course America is on, just ignore them, get behind this president, and vote,” she told her viewers.
Pirro said Obama “pontificated” about racism and accused him of being “divisive” by making
“Are you kidding?” Pirro said. “If anyone has stoked racial hatred and divisiveness it’s you and your self-proclaimed wingman Attorney General Eric Holder, running off to Ferguson, attacking all law enforcement, whenever there’s a death, even before there’s any investigation.”
Pirro said that Trump’s election was Obama’s fault.
“You desperately tried to defeat Trump and it didn’t work,” Pirro said. “I’m sorry to say this, but there’s one thing you’re going to have to live with: the only reason we have an outsider businessman president, is because of you, your lies, your policies and your divisiveness. You, Barack, you elected Donald Trump. And there’s nothing you can do about the fact that he’s sitting in the Oval Office now. So I guess I should say, ‘thank you Barak.'”
Russian disqualified from Tango competition for punching his partner
A Russian participant in the World Tango Championships in Buenos Aires has been disqualified for violence towards his partner, the organizers said Wednesday.
The incident happened after the duo, a husband and wife, took part in the semi-final of the competition on Tuesday in the Argentine capital.
Organizers condemned the assault plus "assisted the victim and made the decision to disqualify the dancer," said a source with the Championships who declined to be named.
Officials did not name the couple in order "to preserve the identity of the victim who declined to file a complaint."
‘His mommy should have told him she loved him a little bit more’: CNN analyst eviscerates Trump over ‘chosen one’ comments’
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," analyst Gloria Borger laid into President Donald Trump for his bizarre press conference anointing himself "the chosen one."
"'I am the chosen one,' and that comes after the president re-tweeted a conspiracy theorist radio host who said that he is like the second coming," said host Brianna Keilar. "So what do you make of all of this?"
"I think maybe his mommy should have told him she loved him a little bit more," said Borger. "I don't know. It is hard — it is hard to know what to make of this. Some people will say, as Trump says, 'Oh, I was only joking when I said all of that stuff.' But the truth of the matter is that he does this all of the time, and talks about how wonderful he is, and if you recall during his speech at the convention when he talked about the problems the country was facing he was saying 'I alone can fix it.'"
Trump’s ‘fake concern’ for Jews doesn’t mask his anti-Semitism, say critics
"By his continued encouragement of white supremacy and his daily racist attacks on immigrants and people of color, Trump is making the American Jewish community less safe by the day."
President Donald Trump doubled down on his accusations of disloyalty to Jewish-Americans who vote for Democrats during an impromptu press conference Wednesday, prompting a fresh round of recriminations from critics.
"If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel," the president said during remarks to reporters on the White House South Lawn.
