The View’s Sunny Hostin torches Ivanka’s flimsy denial: ‘You just kind of confirmed the BuzzFeed story’

Published

on

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin ripped into Ivanka Trump’s carefully worded denial of a BuzzFeed report about her father allegedly directing attorney Michael Cohen to commit perjury.

The president’s daughter and senior adviser issued a statement through a spokesperson denying some of the report’s claims about her involvement in negotiations for Trump Tower Moscow, but Hostin said the denial was pretty thin.

“What struck me as interesting is Ivanka Trump’s very carefully worded statement which, in my view, wasn’t necessarily a denial,” Hostin said. “She said through one of her spokespeople, ‘Ms. Trump did not know about this proposal until after a non-binding letter of intent had been signed, never talked to anyone outside the organization about the proposal, never visited the project site and was only minimally involved.'”

“That says to me, so you were kind of involved, but only minimally,” Hostin said. “You didn’t go to the site, but you knew about the site, and you found out about the proposal, but only after a letter of intent had been signed. So that kind of told me, well then, you just kind of confirmed that the BuzzFeed story is kind of accurate, right?”

"Well, Donald Trump has already had two income tax fraud trials by the state of New York and the city of New York," said Johnston. "They were civil fraud, not criminal fraud. The New York Times in October of 2018, in this brilliant project on Trump's taxes based on records we know came from his niece — without question, he and his siblings are major-league tax cheats."

Tucker Carlson’s ex-lead writer has a history of racist, homophobic and misogynistic social media posts

Published

on

Blake Neff, the lead writer of The Tucker Carlson Show on FOX News, resigned on Friday after CNN uncovered a trove of disgustingly racist, homophobic and misogynist social media posts that Blake published under the handle “CharlesXII” on AutoAdmit (aka. XOXOhth), a largely unmoderated message board used by lawyers and law school students.

Among Neff’s most telling posts are a reference to “foodie faggots,” a comment stating, “Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down,” and another comment stating that Democratic U.S. House Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib, all women of color, want to “MAKE YOUR COUNTRY A DUMPING GROUND FOR PEOPLE FROM THIRD WORLD SHITHOLES.”
