‘You gave in right away!’ Fox & Friends reads Trump the riot act for caving on wall funding

Published

on

“Fox & Friends,” which is normally the most Trump-friendly morning cable news show, absolutely hammered President Donald Trump for caving on his promise to shut down the federal government unless Congress gave him funds to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

While discussing the GOP’s failure to fund the wall in the latest government spending bill, guest host Jedidiah Bila predicted that the president’s base would be enraged if the wall didn’t get built, even though Republicans have held both chambers of Congress for the past two years.

“This is going to be a problem for Republicans,” she said. “I think a lot of people who voted for President Trump counted on him on this particular issue, I think their feet were to the fire. And you see a lot of people around the country saying, ‘Hold on a second. You told us that you weren’t afraid to shut down the government, that’s why we like you. What happened? You just gave in right away?'”

Guest host Ed Henry then piped up to defend the president by claiming that “the border is more secure now than it was under President Obama” — but host Brian Kilmeade quickly shut him down.

“It seems like chaos,” Kilmeade said of the border. “And by the way, the amount of apprehensions has gone up — November, I think, was a record.”

This has always been confounding, as the official summary readout of the famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shows Trump clearly conditioning military aid and U.S. support on Zelensky giving a public boost to Trump's conspiracy theories about former Vice President Joe Biden and other Democratic leaders. The witnesses so far have simply affirmed what the written record demonstrates amply.

Why saying ‘OK boomer’ at work is considered age discrimination – but millennial put-downs aren’t

Published

on

The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.

Though it originated online and primarily is fueling memes, Twitter feuds and a flurry of commentary, it has begun migrating to real life. Earlier this month, a New Zealand lawmaker lobbed the insult at an older legislator who had dismissed her argument about climate change.

Republicans are getting scared about Gordon Sondland’s Wednesday impeachment testimony: report

Published

on

Ambassador Gordon Sondland may be the most dangerous witness for President Donald Trump in the impeachment hearings so far, and that's in part because he has a lot to lose.

And according to CNN's Shimon Prokuecz, his scheduled testimony for Wednesday morning is making Republicans nervous:

Multiple GOP sources say they are most worried about what Gordon Sondland will do tomorrow - and whether he will turn on the President. The fear, Republicans say, is that he could undercut the last GOP defense. @mkraju
