On Tuesday, Fox News’ “The Five” discussed recent reports of a great white shark that has been observed heading for New York City — not the sort of news story that would typically have any sort of partisan connotations.
Incredibly, however, co-host Greg Gutfeld found a way to make sharks a partisan issue. Specifically, he argued, they are just like President Donald Trump — because they too are unfairly demonized by the “fake news” media despite not having killed that many people!
“The shark is the first victim of fake news,” said Gutfeld. “You can put it all on [Jaws director] Steven Spielberg, with that movie changed the way that people looked at sharks. Because sharks don’t kill that many people — in fact, I think in this segment alone, this four-minute segment, more people have probably died in car accidents or accidental overdoses, blah blah blah.”
“Shark coverage is a microcosm of Trump coverage,” Gutfeld added. “You have nonstop sightings, fearmongering, nonsensical hysteria, all created by the media who then makes these segments.”
Meghan McCain mystifies co-hosts by defending Trump with a bizarre Ebola rant: ‘It’s my No. 1 fear in life’
Meghan McCain briefly derailed a conversation on "The View" about President Donald Trump humiliating his chief of staff during a TV interview.
The president ordered White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney out of the Oval Office after he coughed as Trump was speaking to ABC News, and McCain said she couldn't blame him.
"My No. 1 fear in life, in general, above all things, is getting the Ebola virus, above all else," McCain said. "It's my biggest fear in the entire world."
Her comment seemed to amuse co-host Joy Behar, who cracked a grin.
"Ebola virus?" Behar said. "Do they have that here?"
Here are 4 ways unrestrained crony capitalism is making Americans’ lives miserable
Although Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, both running for president in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, have similar economic views, they part company when it comes to the use of the words “socialism” and “capitalism.” Sanders describes himself as a “democratic socialist,” while Warren has declared, “I’m a capitalist to my bones.” But truth be told, Sanders and Warren are both disciples of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal and President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society — and both of them are campaigning on the fact that unrestrained crony capitalism has been a source of misery for the American working class.
Rep. Ted Lieu asks special counsel to bring the hammer down on Jared Kushner for Hatch Act violations
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) have asked the Office of Special Counsel to open an investigation into Jared Kushner for alleged violations of the Hatch Act.
According to the congressmen, Kushner violated the law by "engaging in prohibited campaign fundraising activities."
Reports have suggested that Kushner has used his official role in the White House to aid President Donald Trump's reelection effort.
Last week the Office of Special Counsel took the unprecedented step of recommending Kellyanne Conway's removal from service for violations of the Hatch Act.
