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.
UK travel giant Thomas Cook set to collapse: report
Thomas Cook's 178-year existence was reported to be coming to an end on Monday after the British travel firm struggled to find private investment to keep it afloat, potentially affecting thousands of holidaymakers.
The operator has said it needs £200 million ($250 million) or else it will face administration, which could affect 600,000 holidaymakers and require Britain's largest peacetime repatriation.
A source close to the negotiations told AFP that the company had failed to find the cash from private investors and would collapse unless the government intervened.
But ministers are unlikely to step in due to worries about the pioneering operator's longer-term viability, the Times reported, leaving it on the brink.
‘We are the people’: Watch Billy Porter get a standing ovation for his passionate speech at the Emmys
In a powerful and passionate speech accepting his Emmy, "Pose" actor Billy Porter showered the audience with love and proudly reminded all of their right to belong and be loved.
"Oh, my God. God bless you all! The category is love, y'all, love!" Porter exclaimed.
The epic FX show "Pose" depicts Black and Latinos in the LGBTQ ballroom culture of New York City in the 1980s in the first season and the early 1990s in the second season.
"I am so overwhelmed and so overjoyed to have lived long enough to see this day," he said. "James Baldwin wrote, 'It took many years of vomiting up the filth I was taught about myself and half-believed, before I was able to walk on the earth as though I had a right to be here.' I have the right. You have the right. We all have the right."
Paris show of King Tutankhamun artifacts set new record with 1.42 million visitors
A blockbuster Tutankhamun show set a new all-time French record Sunday, with 1.42 million visitors flocking to see the exhibition in Paris, the organisers said.
The turnout beat the previous record set by another Tutankhamun show billed as the "exhibition of the century" in 1967, when 1.24 million queued to see "Tutankhamun and His Times" at the Petit Palais.
"Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh" -- which has been described as a "once in a generation" show -- will open in London in November.
The last time a show of comparable size about the boy king opened there in 1972 it sparked "Tutmania", with 1.6 million people thronging the British Museum.
