“The View” co-host Meghan McCain bristled when a producer scolded her for repeatedly using “jackass” during a discussion of former Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen.
Co-host Abby Huntsman suggested Cohen’s congressional testimony Feb. 7 will drive Twitter “wild,” but she questioned why Trump’s opponents suddenly considered the president’s former attorney a “hero.”
“Let’s not forget who Michael Cohen is,” Huntsman said. “A year ago people people hated this guy. He was the fixer for the Trump family for over a decade, he once said he would take a bullet for Trump.”
She argued that Cohen wouldn’t reveal much of value during his testimony, which she insisted couldn’t even be trusted, and McCain largely agreed.
“We’ll probably get some information,” McCain said. “Will it be the damning ‘Trump is impeached’ moment? Probably not. I honestly think Michael Cohen was a jackass from Day One, and I continue to think he’s a jackass. I don’t know what he could probably say to change that.”
Guest host Ana Navarro disagreed, saying Cohen’s testimony was indeed significant.
“Here’s the thing though,” Navarro said. “He’s Donald Trump’s jackass.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in, saying that was exactly what she was going to say — and McCain pressed her fingers to her earpiece and interrupted.
“Sorry, apparently you’re not allowed to say that, Ana,” McCain said, frowning. “I just got it in my earpiece — sorry. Sorry I can’t say that, but the audience is in agreement with us, that guy seems shady.”
“I’m sorry, don’t censor us on what we’re allowed to say about a guy like Michael Cohen who’s about to rot in jail,” she added.
‘Go back to Harlem!’: Florida woman has n-word laced meltdown after bumping black woman’s shopping cart
On Saturday, the Atlanta Black Star reported an incident in Florida, in which a white woman screamed racial slurs at a black woman at a Publix supermarket in Miami after their shopping carts jostled each other.
After the woman allegedly banged into Nicki Johnson's cart, she refused to apologize, saying, "I didn't hit you with my cart, and f**k you, you f**king n****r."
Johnson whipped out her cell phone camera, and began recording the incident, saying "You, why don't you call me a n****r again?"
"You thinking I'm sorry?" snapped the woman. "Let me tell you something, I don't have to call you anything. Get away from me, I will call security and there are surveillance videos. Get away from me!"
‘I’m a nurse, what are you?’: Tennessee lawmaker humiliates anti-choice activists in brutal public grilling
Anti-choice activists in Tennessee were unprepared for the grilling they got from a Democratic Party lawmaker when making the case for a bill that would outlaw abortion before many women knew they were pregnant.
One of the speakers in favor of the fetal heartbeat bill was Baptist Pastor Randy Davis, who was questioned by state Sen. Katrina Robinson (D-Memphis).
"How many women executive pastors do you have in your convention?" Robinson asked Davis. "Or senior pastors."
"None," Davis replied.
"So is it the same ideology that restricts access to women being able to lead a congregation that leads you all to support women not being able to make a medical decision about their body?" Robinson asked.
Trump is doing everything he did in 2016 to get elected — and it’s failing this time: columnist
On Saturday, Washington Post columnist Dan Balz wrote that President Donald Trump is relying on the same old bag of tricks that let him lurch blindly to a surprise victory in 2016 — but that that playbook is unlikely to get him elected again, let alone deliver sound domestic or foreign policy.
"After a week in which the threat of recession rocked global financial markets, his trade war with China showed no signs of progress and the government of Israel got into a nasty dispute with two members of Congress, President Trump went to bed Thursday night with other weighty issues on his mind. 'Great news,' he tweeted. 'Tonight we broke the all-time attendance record previously held by Elton John at #SNHUArena [Southern New Hampshire University] in Manchester!'" wrote Balz. "This is the frivolous mind-set of the president of the United States. Trump’s flurry of statements over the past few days have brought into focus once again something fundamental about him: He has little understanding of what it means to govern. He would rather tweet from the bleachers."
