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.
Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money
The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.
New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.
Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
