Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace said Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had hit a nerve with her comments about President Donald Trump.
Pelosi and Trump have been engaged in a public feud since Wednesday, when the house speaker accused the president of being engaged in a “cover-up.”
On Thursday, Trump derailed a press conference by going on a lengthy attack against Pelosi and insisting he was completely “calm” during his brief infrastructure meeting with Democrats.
“I have to say I’m not sure who was trolling whom. I think they were trying to get under each other’s skin. There is no question that Nancy Pelosi, when she starts talking about I pray for the president and perhaps his family should have an intervention, was trying to get at the president,” Wallace explained.
“And clearly she succeeded to some degree in getting under his skin when yesterday at the press conference he called on what, about four or five members of his administration to confirm the fact that he didn’t have a ‘temper tantrum’ and didn’t lose his temper when he ended the meeting on infrastructure on Wednesday.”
“On the other hand, he gives as good as he gets and talking about ‘crazy Nancy’ and that she is losing it and he is worried about her,” Wallace continued.
“You know, look, as a political reporter in this town it’s all very entertaining but as an American what it means is that nothing gets done. That has to be concerning whether it’s infrastructure. There are a lot of things that have to get done in the course of this year, let alone 2020 and the campaign. They have to figure out how to fund the government by October 1. They have to raise the debt limit or the country goes into default.”
Attorney George Conway reveals two ‘great’ questions — that Trump can’t answer
Prominent Republican attorney and Lincoln Project member George Conway on Monday offered his analysis of how reporters should question President Donald Trump.
Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, made his comments after watching video of Trump refusing to criticize Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Who do you think poisoned Alexei Navalny in Russia?”
“Uh,” Trump replied. “We’ll talk about that at another time.”
Jaime Harrison says ‘I am living rent free in Lindsey Graham’s head’ — and he might be right
Jaime Harrison, the Democrat challenging Sen. Lindsey Graham, on Monday said that his upstart campaign is panicking the incumbent.
Harrison was interviewed on MSNBC by "The Last Word" anchor Lawrence O'Donnell, who noted the most recent polling shows a tied race.
"Have you experienced any extra fund-raising surge over the weekend?" O'Donnell asked.
"Well, Lawrence, we have gotten tremendous support and we really appreciate it," Harrison replied.
"Do you believe you have the resources and the campaign team and the ground troops you need in South Carolina to actually pull this off?" O'Donnell asked later in the interview.
Outrage against Dianne Feinstein as potential Judiciary chair comes out against Senate reform
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) received harsh criticism on Monday after coming out against Senate reform of the filibuster.
“I don't believe in doing that. I think the filibuster serves a purpose," Feinstein argued.
"It is not often used, it's often less used now than when I first came, and I think it's part of the Senate that differentiates itself," Feinstein falsely claimed.
Feinstein is in line to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee if Democrats regain the Senate, despite never attending law school or having ever tried a case.
