On Thanksgiving, Fox News continued their panic over Democrats capturing control of the House of Representatives.

Fox Business Network personality Charles Payne, who was filling in during the holiday, was concerned that Democrats would provide oversight of President Donald Trump.

“You’ve got these older, established Democrats who’ve seen what’s happened in the past, they know it’s a risky political move,” he argued.

“Whereas the upstarts, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s of the world, maybe they just don’t know, they’re like bulls in a china shop, they just want to create havoc,” Payne suggested.

“Right,” said Phil Wegmann of the conservative Washington Examiner.

“The question for Republicans is how do they want to respond,” Wegmann said. “Are they going to continue with a nice-guy sort-of schtick, like we saw out of Paul Ryan (R-WI) — who is a lovable policy wonk — or Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is, you know, the affable friend of everybody in Congress or are they going to respond like Newt Gingrich would have and really bring the hammer down.”

Wegmann’s publication, the Washington Examiner, was recently in a scandal after reporter Eddie Scary posted a widely-criticized picture of Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez’s posterior.

‘NO WAY!’ Trump starts off Thanksgiving by whining about his election loss

Published

on

President Donald Trump started off Thanksgiving by whining about his election loss to Joe Biden.

Biden earned a record 80 million votes, with ballots still being counted, and the president reacted to that news Thursday by insisting his loss was impossible.

"Just saw the vote tabulations," Trump tweeted. "There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION."

Twitter immediately slapped a disclaimer on his unfounded claims, which have been rejected over and over by courts and were disputed by the Homeland Security official who oversaw election security -- until the president fired him.

Trump will soon be a ‘dumpy 74-year-old wheeling around the golf course’ while awaiting ‘his next cheeseburger’: columnist

Published

on

Daily Beast columnist Margaret Carlson on Thursday published a brutal opinion piece in which she danced on President Donald Trump's political grave and relished the thought of his fading into irrelevancy.

In her column, Carlson acknowledged many liberals' fears that Trump will never leave the national spotlight, but she said the soon-to-be-ex-president is more likely to be treated more like a washed-up celebrity that a political icon.

"To those worried we will never rid ourselves of Trump, watch as he shrinks before our very eyes in a Washington minute from leader of the free world to a broken-down real estate developer up to his ears in debt," she wrote. "On Monday, Trump was just another dumpy 74-year-old man wheeling around the golf course in a motorized cart wondering how long it would be until his next cheeseburger."
