Fox News panel trashes Trump for his ‘truly offensive’ obsession with attacking ‘dead war hero’ John McCain

Published

on

An entire panel on Fox News criticized President Donald Trump for repeatedly trashing the late John McCain after his most recent comments about the “dead war hero” during a press conference with Brazil’s far-right president Jair Bolsonaro.

GOP strategist Lauren Claffey said the party is “always a little concerned” about Trump’s inability to stay on-message in the wake of his comment earlier in the day when he said he was “never a fan of John McCain and never will be.”

Host Neil Cavuto then noted that Trump’s “fixation” on McCain is “in a field of its own” apart from his typical tweeting.

RealClearPolitics’ A.B. Stoddard agreed with the host, noting that “we’ve known for a while that President Trump took it very personally” when McCain voted against the “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act when he was still in the Senate.

“He obviously takes it very personally,” Stoddard added. “He mentions it at rallies, mentions it over and over again. It is truly offensive. There’s veterans that are supporters of Donald Trump that will be deeply hurt by these comments.”

“I do believe you do jump that proverbial shark going after a dead war hero,” Cavuto added later in the segment.

‘I’ve heard enough’: Representative refuses to ask Lewandowski questions because it’s giving him ‘a platform’

Published

In a brief moment of the Corey Lewandowski hearing Tuesday, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) refused to allow the top Trump advisor any more time to promote himself or his political campaign.

She probed whether President Donald Trump had ever promised to pardon Lewandowski, which he refused to answer.

"The president did indicate that he’s going to support your Senate campaign. Didn’t he?" Scanlon asked. But Lewandowski said he wasn't sure.

"Okay. Well, I just want to know for the record when Mr. Lewandowski asked for the committee to give him a little break an hour and a half, two hours ago, he took the time during that recess to launch his Senate campaign website with a tweet," she continued. "And I think that fact says an awful lot about the witness’ motivation to appear here today and I’ve heard enough. I yield back."

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.
