Even Donald Trump mocks Fox News’ Sean Hannity’s slobbering devotion: report

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity stirred up controversy by appearing at a Trump rally recently, raising questions about whether the network should so blatantly back President Donald Trump.

Hannity also often hosts the president on his show.

A new report in the Daily Beast reveals that even Trump mocks Hannity for asking softball questions.

Sources tell the Beast that Trump, who appears to thrive on validation, nevertheless has made fun of Hannity for the host’s excessive sucking up.

“It’s like he’s not even trying,” Trump has said, one source told the Daily Beast, before Trump did a nasty impersonation of Hannity’s gestures and voice.

He’s also called Hannity’s line of inquiry “dumb.”

In fact, Trump, who often spars with reporters like CNN’s Jim Acosta, appears bored by Hannity’s unadulterated support.

“[Trump] does enjoy the back-and-forth with the press—look at this whole Jim Acosta thing,” Jeff Lord, a Trump ally, told the Beast. “The president can call on anybody he wants. He could have ignored Jim Acosta. He didn’t do it. And he didn’t do it because… they would have some chance to do some verbal jousting there.”

Fox News issued a statement calling Hannity’s appearance at a Trump campaign event an “unfortunate distraction.”

Published

President Donald Trump said Friday that he was fine with a "longer" impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate because he wanted to call his own witnesses to appear, despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's resistance.

Yet, when he returned to Twitter Friday night, Trump lamented that it wasn't fair he was being impeached.

"It’s not fair that I’m being Impeached when I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong! The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have become the Party of Hate. They are so bad for our Country!" he tweeted.

‘Moscow Mitch’ blunder means Donald Trump can never be vindicated: Harvard Law’s Laurence Tribe

Published

on

Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for violating a legal principle that has existed for over 1,000 -- and his move means that President Donald Trump can never be vindicated during impeachment.

Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law School for 50 years and argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court, has been advising Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats during the impeachment inquiry. He was interviewed on Friday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.

Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."

Published

on

A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.

"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.
