CNN panel ridicules exodus from White House after Bill Shine bails: ‘The only ones left are the nepotism hires’

Published

On Friday, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin ridiculed President Donald Trump for having a rotating staff. Former Fox News executive Bill Shine resigned from his position as White House communication director.

During an interview with CNN host Wolf Blitzer, Toobin said that the only people left in Trump’s White House are his “nepotism hires.”

“It’s not just the Communication Department. Other than Kellyanne Conway, who is still there from the beginning?” Toobin said. “They’re all gone.”

He added, “The chief of staff, the national security adviser, he’s gone through several. The only people that are there are the nepotism hires like his daughter and son-in-law. And Kellyanne Conway who has some magic potion that allows her to stay. The rule is, he gets sick of people. It’s not the exception.”

National security analyst Shawn Turner added, “The president isn’t looking for someone to give advice and counsel. They are looking for someone to do the impossible and make the president look good no matter what he says.”

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver's main story Sunday refuted President Donald Trump's latest crusade against vote-by-mail. Trump announced on Twitter that the more people who vote in an election, the more Republicans tend to lose. So, he wants fewer people to have access to the ballot in November, even if people are too scared to go out during the coronavirus crisis.

"Well, hold on there," Oliver interjected. "Voting is a right. It has to be easy to understand and accessible to anyone."

John Oliver rips Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for urging ‘order’ from people of color — but never demanding it of police

Published

on

John Oliver opened his Sunday show, shredding Fox News host Tucker Carlson for uring "order" among protesters, but refusing to urge "order" to police and "wannabe police" who can't stop killing people.

It's a lot, Oliver explained. "How these protests are a response to a legacy of police misconduct, both in Minneapolis and the nation at large and how that misconduct is, itself, built on a legacy of white supremacy that prioritizes the comfort of white Americans over the safety of people of color."

While some of it is complicated, Oliver conceded, most of it is "all too clear."

Cars set on fire blocks from White House as DC protests turn violent

Published

on

The Washington, D.C. protests turned violent as the city approached the 11 p.m. curfew the mayor instituted Sunday afternoon.

The policy of D.C. police is that when they are attacked, they advance forward. So, when fireworks were fired, the line of officers began pushing the protesters back further from the White House. Behind the line of police officers also stand a line of National Guard troops that President Donald Trump has demanded stand watch in the city.

Lights that normally shine on the White House have also been turned off, reporters revealed.
