This GOP conspiracy theory about Flynn and the FBI was too crazy even for Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro

Published

on

While filling in for Fox News host Sean Hannity, Judge Jeanine Pirro shot down a conspiracy theory about former Trump aide Michael Flynn — because it contained factual inaccuracies.

The bizarre scene transpired during an interview with Sebastian Gorka, a former Trump White House aide who like Flynn left the administration in disgrace after unsavory parts of his background were revealed.

In a panel discussion on the bombastic Flynn sentencing hearing, Gorka echoed a GOP conspiracy theory alleging former FBI director James Comey skirted norms and created a trap by sending agents to interview the ex-national security adviser at the White House.

“Why did Jim Comey send those agents to the White House in flagrant denial of White House Counsel procedure?” the ex-Trump administration aide mused. “It was a classic entrapment ploy.”

Pirro, however, corrected him.

“Not legal entrapment in the sense that we prosecutors understand it,” she told Gorka, adding that it could be considered a “perjury trap.”

Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
