Devin Nunes honorary dinner cancelled by Fresno GOP

Published

on

The Fresno County GOP has canceled a dinner that would have honored Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) amid calls to crash the event that came after his legal spat with the “Devin Nunes’ cow” Twitter account.

The Fresno Bee newspaper, known for their own public feuds with Nunes, reported that the county’s Republican party canceled the Lincoln Reagan dinner scheduled for April that would have featured the California congressman as its keynote speaker.

Organizers confirmed to the Bee that they are trying to reschedule the event that would also have honored Rep. David Valadao and former state Sen. Andy Vidak (both of whom lost re-election bids last year).

Earlier this week, news broke that Nunes is suing the @Devincow parody Twitter account that jokingly purports to be a cow living in Iowa that belongs to the GOP congressman. He also is planning to sue another user who pretended to be his mother and Twitter itself.

Soon after Fox News broke the story about the “Devin cow” account, its follower count surpassed Nunes’.

Twitter users — including Andy Lassner, an executive producer for The Ellen Show — tweeted about the event, joking that it would be funny if people bought tickets and showed up to the event to “moo” at Nunes.

“I’m not saying it would be hilarious if folks in Fresno showed up to this event just to moo,” Lassner tweeted. “I’m not saying that at all.”

The Fresno GOP did not respond to the Bee‘s questions about whether they delayed the dinner due to calls to crash the event.

Fox News is so obsessed with Ocasio-Cortez they said her name three times as much as CNN or MSNBC

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
