‘Check your soul’: Conservative Matt Drudge unloads on Fox News for laughing about the massacre of Jews

Published

on

Conservative media personality Matt Drudge is not the likeliest critic of Fox News. But a segment on Fox this morning was too much even for him.

“A segment on Fox News this morning where hosts laughed and joked their way through a discussion on political impact of terror was bizarre,” he posted to Twitter. “Not even 48 hours since blood flowed at synagogue? Check your soul in the makeup chair!”

Drudge was apparently referring to an Outnumbered segment this morning. He posted a picture of Fox News host Kennedy laughing above a chyron that said, “Questions on how mail bomb scare, synagogue attack could impact midterm voters eight days from now.”

During a segment on Outnumbered, the Fox News hosts discussed how politicians were responding to the Pittsburg shooting and mail bombs targeting prominent liberals.

“Sadly tragedies are not even bringing us together any more,” Kennedy said. “It used to be — unfortunately, it was a unifying factor. We all remember how the country and in places like New York City, how people came together after 9/11. Watching vigils and other parts of the world as they pray for us and pray for our country to heal. It feels like we have really lost that.”

She then pivoted to joking about voting for a third party as her colleagues laughed.

“What I will say is being a member of a third party for a little while,” Kennedy remarked. “Then you will see what it feels like to lose every single election and still walk around with a smile on your face.”

A spokesperson for Fox News responded to Drudge in a statement.

“Kennedy made an unrelated quip at the end of the segment which was focused on unity – there was absolutely no joking or laughing about the events of this weekend and a screen grab of her smiling is hardly indicative of the entire segment. The lower third should not have been up for the duration of this segment as it was not fully reflective of what the panelists were discussing,” the statement said.

WATCH: Roger Stone greeted with ‘Lock Him Up!’ chants after getting sentenced to 40 months

Published

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

Watch the video below.

‘Beg to be tried as a white man’: Disgust follows Roger Stone’s light sentence — while people of color sit in jail for less

Published

Judge Amy Berman Jackson was the target of serious attacks by President Donald Trump's supporters and Roger Stone himself. When the Justice Department encouraged seven to nine years in prison for Stone, Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr freaked out, rewriting the sentencing memo that was ultimately ignored by the new prosecutors.

But Stone wasn't given the hefty sentence that Trump and his followers assumed Stone would get. Instead, he got a fairly light sentence of just over three years.

Leading up to the sentence, Berman Jackson was blasted on Twitter. So, it's unclear how Trump and his followers will manage to attack the judge for the sentence. Some still managed to do it, saying Stone shouldn't have been sentenced to any time at all.

Trump supporter made death threat to whistleblower’s lawyer one day after president targeted him at rally: feds

A Trump supporter has been charged with making death threats to Mark Zaid, an attorney who represents the whistleblower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump over his efforts to extort the Ukrainian government.

Politico reports that Michigan resident Brittan J. Atkinson emailed a violent threat to Zaid just one day after the president held up the attorney's photo at one of his rallies and read some of his tweets.

“All traitors must die miserable deaths,” Atkinson allegedly wrote in the email, which was sent on November 7th. “Those that represent traitors shall meet the same fate. We will hunt you down and bleed you out like the pigs you are. We have nothing but time, and you are running out of it. Keep looking over your shoulder. We know who you are, where you live, and who you associate with. We are all strangers in a crowd to you.”
