‘I’m so f*cking mad’: Fox News staffers erupt with rage after Sean Hannity campaigns with Trump

Published

on

Fox News employees expressed outrage this week after Sean Hannity referred to his own network as “fake news” at a campaign rally with President Donald Trump.

CNN on Tuesday reported that more than a dozen Fox News staffers said they were disappointed by Hannity’s decision to participate in a campaign rally in Missouri on Monday night.

“People throughout the company think a new line was crossed,” one employee of the network told CNN.

“It disturbs me to my core,” another Fox News staffer agreed. “I am so f—ing mad.”

A third employee explained that staffers had been told that Hannity would limit his participation to interviewing the president.

“We were all told that Hannity was going to interview the president, but no one that I spoke with expected what happened last night,” the employee said. “I’m aghast as are a number of other people.”

Although Hannity promised in a tweet not to campaign with the president, he appeared on stage with Trump at the rally.

And to add insult to injury, Hannity referred to media in the room — including Fox News employees — as “fake news.”

“By the way,” Hannity told the crowd, “all those people in the back are fake news.”

Legal battles sparked by Trump’s behavior could affect how the US government works for generations — long after his impeachment trial is over

Published

After the last Senate staffer turns out the lights, major questions remain to be decided outside of the Capitol about the limits of presidential power, the willingness of courts to decide political questions and the ability of Congress to exercise effective oversight and hold a president accountable.

Here are three of those questions.

What are the limits of presidential power?

First, the aggressive exercise of executive power by Trump has put this power under court scrutiny.

Trump’s vow to “fight all the subpoenas” breaks from the traditional process – negotiation and accommodation – that previous presidents have used to resolve disputes between branches of the government.

Secret recording features Trump falsely claiming that weed makes people ‘lose IQ points’

Published

on

President Donald Trump falsely claimed that marijuana makes people "lose IQ points" in a secret recording released by indicted former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

Parnas released the recording, which captured more than one hour of conversation at a private donor dinner with Trump in 2018, to show that the president told him that he would fire then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. But the recording, which was apparently captured by Parnas' indicted associate Igor Fruman, also featured Trump discussing Kim Jong Un's golf game, the European Union trying to "screw the United States," the 2016 election . . . and his views on marijuana.

Experts explain how Trump team’s defense against the Bolton bombshell is blowing up in the president’s face

Published

on

Should former National Security Adviser John Bolton testify in President Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial? This question has loomed over the entire proceedings, given Bolton's key role in the events in question, but it garnered heightened urgency when a report broke recently in the New York Times revealing that the ex-Trump aide would likely confirm the core of the Democrats' case against the president.

It still seems Republicans may succeed in quashing any demands for witnesses like Bolton. But as Trump and his attorney responded to the release of Bolton bombshell, they actually strengthened the case for having him testify rather than weakening it. Even if the GOP successfully brings the trial to a swift close, their having accidentally strengthened the case for witnesses may hurt the legitimacy of the Senate's proceedings and undermined Trump's inevitable claims of exoneration.
