A panel discussion hosted by MSNBC host Kendis Gibson turned into an ugly shouting match between Donald Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany and Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn on Sunday.
Touching on multiple subjects, the argument between the two accelerated when McEnany claimed she was speaking for the American people in saying that Trump is doing a great job — using the results from a single poll to validate her claim.
As Corn told her she in no way was in any position to speak for the American public, McEnany attempted to yell over him only to admonished by the MSNBC host to let Corn speak. At the same time, Gibson fact-checked the Trump spokesperson with polls that don’t show near what she claimed.
Things took a turn for the worse when McEnany claimed Trump had no Russian business dealings while he was running for president, to which Corn — who co-authored “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump” — called her out as a liar by pointing out a proposal from Trump to build a Moscow tower as she again talked over him again and denied it.
That prompted Corn to fire back, “That’s crap!”

The term ‘evangelical’ has crumbled into meaninglessness in the era of Trump: professor
As the evangelical Christian movement began to rise in politics before the 1980 election, there was a fork in the road that forced the self-described "Moral Majority" to make a decision in regards to which candidate they supported: the devout Christian Jimmy Carter, or the divorced Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan.
Writing for the Atlantic, Baylor University professor of humanities Alan Jacobs says it was the Moral Majority's decision to go with Reagan that "inaugurated the affiliation of white American evangelicals with the Republican Party that has lasted to this day."

Fox legal analyst: Ukraine scandal is ‘far more serious’ than what Mueller dug up on Trump
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday told Fox Business host David Asman that President Donald Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is a serious case of corruption that cannot be ignored.
Although Asman tried to make the story about the actions of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Napolitano said that what Trump has done appears far worse than anything the former vice president did.
"This is the most serious charge against the president, far more serious than what Bob Mueller dug or dragged up against him," Napolitano said. "If there was a quid pro quo -- it does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these... conversations were going on between the presidents."
