Hannity pondering bailing on Fox News because he no longer feels the network is loyal to Trump: report

Published

on

A new Vanity Fair analysis behind the scenes of Fox News reveals an interesting new piece of information: longtime Fox megastar conservative commentator Sean Hannity has told friends that he plans to leave the network after his current contract expires in 2021.

According to sources, Hannity is angry at the Murdochs, the powerful conservative family that owns the network, believing they are insufficiently loyal to President Donald Trump and secretly out to get him. He has been angry ever since the network ousted former Fox CEO Roger Ailes, who was accused of sexual harassment by multiple employees, and co-president Bill Shine, who served a brief stint in the White House after his departure.

“Sean doesn’t feel supported,” one Fox news staffersaid. “He has no relationship with Lachlan [Murdoch]. Sean thinks, Wait a second, I was hired to get ratings and I get ratings, but now people are embarrassed about me? He feels Fox spends a lot of time supporting Shepard Smith but his show makes no money. That’s annoying to him.”

Another source claimed that Hannity even “told Trump last year that the Murdochs hate Trump, and Hannity is the only one holding Fox together.”

Hannity’s discontent underscores a growing problem for Fox News’ owners: they are stuck between trying to please President Donald Trump and trying not to alienate mainstream corporate advertisers, who have increasingly denounced the most inflammatory rhetoric from personalities like Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson.

‘I can do what I want!’ Angry woman threatens to sue dental office for asking her to wear a face mask

Published

on

A woman was caught on camera this week having a full meltdown in a dental office waiting room after she refused to either wear a face mask or let workers take her temperature.

In a video posted on TikTok, the woman can be seen berating office employees who asked her to wear a mask while in the waiting room.

"They're going to be working on my teeth, not on my nose!" the woman yelled. "I don't wear a mask when I'm getting my teeth cleaned."

The workers tried to explain to the woman that the mask would only be worn in the waiting room to prevent other people there from potentially being infected by the novel coronavirus.

Trump set out to be ‘a president who makes us puke’ — and it’s sabotaging his chances for another term: columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, writing for Politico, John Harris argued that part of the reason President Donald Trump is struggling to win re-election is that he is a victim of his own success.

"It is not intended as an insult to President Donald Trump to observe that he is the political equivalent of ipecac syrup. Looked at in a certain light, it is closer to a compliment," wrote Harris. "His supporters gave him power in 2016 because they believed the body politic was beset with toxins — an overdose of fecklessness and hypocrisy — and in need of a purge. Trump vowed to channel the contempt his supporters felt toward the established order, and pledged plausibly to send the old order into a state of convulsive disarray."
