Even Fox News is now refusing to run Trump’s racist immigration ad: report

Published

on

NBC on Sunday offended millions of its viewers by airing a racist immigration ad promoted by President Donald Trump — but on Monday, it quickly backtracked and said it would no longer run the spot.

And it’s not just NBC that has gotten second thoughts about the ad, which depicts asylum seekers trying to gain lawful entry into the United States as potential psychopathic killers — it’s Fox News too.

According to CNN’s Brian Stelter, Fox News has decided it will no longer air the president’s racist ad on either of its two cable news channels.

“Upon further review, FOX News pulled the ad yesterday and it will not appear on either FOX News Channel or FOX Business Network,” ad sales president Marianne Gambelli tells Stelter.

Although Fox will not show the ad going forward, the network did air the ad over the weekend before deciding to pull the plug on Monday.

As Danielle Allen wrote for the Washington Post on Wednesday, Giuliani wanting to talk about "fair play" is a rich proposition.

Trump made a ‘huge mistake’ talking to reporters about impeachment: Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann

Published

on

One of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors explained on MSNBC how President Donald Trump made a "huge mistake" on Wednesday.

Andrew Weissmann, who is now an MSNBC legal analyst, was interviewed by Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press Daily."

The former federal prosecutor says Trump committed a blunder by denying a call with a Gordon Sondland staffer.

"Why is that?" Todd asked.
