Appearing on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, a GOP campaign consultant raked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) over the coals for whining about Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) doing his oversight job investigating Donald Trump — then knocked the rabid Trump defender for once being one of the president’s biggest critics.
Speaking with host Alex Witt, Susan Del Percio called out Graham in no uncertain terms and said he should let Nadler do his constitutionally-mandated job.
“Republicans for the most part and they may not say it on television, but we know that Chairman Nadler is doing his job,” she explained. “That’s what you’re supposed to do as the chairman of the Judiciary [Committee]. They’re conducting oversight hearings, they haven’t started impeachment hearings yet or the inquiry and they are lining up testimony.”
Turning more specifically to Graham, Del Percio complained, “Now, the other thing about Lindsey Graham, I think that Lindsey Graham probably called Donald Trump more negative names during the primary season than Nadler ever did and made it personal.”
“And Donald Trump put out his [Graham’s] cell phone number and the back and forth between them at times was downright ugly, which makes it even more spectacular that Lindsey Graham has turned into the sycophant that he is,” she added.
John Oliver perfectly explains the Mueller report in a way all Americans can understand
The overwhelming majority of Americans have not read the 400-plus-page report from special counsel Robert Mueller. As it stands, it's unclear how many elected officials have either. It's become a problem for Democrats, who would like to impeach the president but can't get the American people to pay attention long enough.
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver has a solution. In his Sunday show, Oliver outlined a vital piece of the report that outlined just one of many obstructions of justice at the hand of President Donald Trump.
After he outlined what impeachment is, he showed Trump talking about the law that claims it's for "high crimes and misdemeanors." According to Trump, he has to be accused of both because it says "and." An annoyed Oliver corrected the president's incorrect assessment.
John Oliver unleashes epic supercut of Fox News host who can’t stop bragging about learning German in high school
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade took German as his foreign language in high school. If you didn't know that, then you likely don't watch Fox News, because the host has made a claim several dozen times.
HBO host John Oliver spent a few moments out of his Sunday episode of "Last Week Tonight" to mock Kilmeade for his desire to remind people of his three years of classes frequently.
Kilmeade has talked about it so many times that his co-hosts began preempting his comment every time the country of Germany is mentioned, or the German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears on the screen.
Watch the hilarious mockery below:
Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats
One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.
According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."
