The View’s Sunny Hostin can’t believe National Enquirer was stupid enough to blackmail Bezos

Published

on

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Thursday provided evidence that the National Enquirer tried to blackmail him. The View’s Sunny Hostin was flabbergasted by the allegations.

“But if you’re [American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer], why would you try to blackmail or extort the richest guy in the world?” Hostin said Friday.

“Like he is the one guy that can stand up to you. And AMI has an agreement with the government, with the Southern District of New York, which says you cannot commit any other crimes because then you don’t have an agreement,” the former prosecutor noted.

Federal prosecutors announced in December 2018 that AMI had entered into a “non-prosecution agreement” regarding its role in a hush-money payment to a former Playboy model who claimed to have had an affair with Donald Trump.

The View co-host Ana Navarro said AMI could be a victim of overconfidence.

“I’ll tell you why they go after him, because they think they can. They were so cocky as to put the extortion, the threat in writing, in detailed writing,” she remarked.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.

Tongue-tied GOP strategist crashes and burns on-air while trying to deny Trump’s racism

Republican strategist Amy Tarkanian crashed and burned on CNN on Saturday while attempting to deny President Donald Trump's racism.

"I do not believe that the president’s tweets were racist. I do believe they were not well thought out. He needs that extra, 'Are you sure?' button on Twitter," Tarkanian argued.

"I'm a black man, I'm a Republican and a black man," the Rev. Joe Watkins interjected. "My mother's an immigrant, I would be angry if someone said that to my mother."

"Oh, it’s very offensive. But he did not say, because you are this color, go back to where you came from," Tarkanian argued. "I’m not supporting that tweet. Was it racist? No. Was it stupid? Yes."

Trump supporter blames Democrats for being targeted by the president: ‘Why is that racist?’

Published

on

CNN interviewed a supporter of President Donald Trump in Eau Claire, Wisconsin who refused to acknowledge the racism in the president's "Go Back" attacks on four women of color in Congress.

The network interviewed Kerri Krumenauer of Wiersgalla Plumbing & Heating Company about Trump's attacks.

"How is it racist?" she asked.

"If you don't like this country, get out," she demanded. "Leave!"

She then showed how misinformed she was about the incident.

"He didn't use any names -- they stood up," she falsely claimed. In fact, Trump did use names and the targets did not stand up as they were not at his North Carolina campaign rally.
