“The View” co-host Joy Behar was creeped out how ousted Fox News executive Bill Shine was helping to coach Brett Kavanaugh through sexual assault allegations, after he was pushed out over his handling of harassment allegations by women at the network.
California professor Christine Blasey Ford accused the Supreme Court nominee of trying to rape her when they were teenagers, and Shine is helping Kavanaugh navigate the allegations before the Senate can vote on his confirmation.
“This is also very rich,” Behar said. “Kavanaugh is going to be in front of them, I guess, next week under oath. So Bill Shine, who was ousted from Fox because he basically oversaw and enabled a culture of sexual harassment over there when Roger Ailes was there. I remember this, you know this.”
Co-host Abby Huntsman, a former Fox News broadcaster, broke in to defend Shine, who joined the White House as communications director in July after leaving the conservative network.
“Bill Shine hired me,” Huntsman said. “He’s a brilliant communicator. I worked with him, and I worked at Fox for a number of — for three years. He’s good at what he does.”
Behar wasn’t sidetracked.
“Bill Shine, he is the one who is coaching Kavanaugh,” Behar said. “Just let that sink in for a second. The guy oversees a culture of sexual harassment, keeps it quiet, doesn’t report it, and basically enables it, and he is now going to be coaching Kavanaugh, who is accused of sexual assault — unbelievable.”
Melania Trump ripped for bragging about helping children while her husband runs concentration camps for kids
Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.
"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.
The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.
Border Patrol blocking Americans from donating toothbrushes and diapers for detained children
On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.
About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.
But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon
When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.
And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
