Fox News’ Sean Hannity ‘defends’ Michael Avenatti by comparing him to Kavanaugh and killer cops

Published

on

Michael Avenatti gained an odd defender Thursday night when Fox News’ Sean Hannity compared the domestic violence allegations against him to the multiple sexual assault claims made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“We on this show are consistent: every American deserves due process,” Hannity said during his opening monologue. “And every American deserves that presumption of innocence, even if you don’t agree with them politically.”

“Someone like Michael Avenatti: he deserves it, you deserve it, everybody deserves it,” the host continued. “And guess what, Judge Kavanaugh deserved it and didn’t get it.”

After quickly bringing up the falsely-accused Duke lacrosse athletes, Hannity noted that Darren Wilson, the officer who killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, was never tried on murder charges.

“His career was ruined anyway,” the host opined.

“Remember what happened in Baltimore, all those officers were ‘guilty’ of what happened with Freddie Grey — none of them convicted, he said. “How many times did the president at the time, Obama, rush to judgment?”

Navajo Nation got masks from a former Trump official — that ‘are not approved by the FDA’: report

Published

on

The Indian Health Service acknowledged on Wednesday that 1 million respirator masks it purchased from a former Trump White House official do not meet Food and Drug Administration standards for “use in healthcare settings by health care providers.”

The IHS statement calls into question why the agency purchased expensive medical gear that it now cannot use as intended. The masks were purchased as part of a frantic agency push to supply Navajo hospitals with desperately needed protective equipment in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

ProPublica revealed last week that Zach Fuentes, President Donald Trump’s former deputy chief of staff, formed a company in early April and 11 days later won a $3 million contract with IHS to provide specialized respirator masks to the agency for use in Navajo hospitals. The contract was granted with limited competitive bidding.
