The hosts of “Fox & Friends” giggled and gloated over Corey Lewandowski’s contentious appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager claimed executive privilege over testimony he gave before special counsel Robert Mueller, admitted he had lied in TV appearances and cracked jokes during five hours of testimony — and the Fox News hosts were delighted.
“He gave as good as he got,” said co-host Steve Doocy.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt was laughing so hard she could barely speak.
“She said the truth shall set you free,” Earhardt said, quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) through guffaws. “‘Answer the question,’ there was no question.”
Co-host Brian Kilmeade opened the segment by declaring Lewandowski the winner of the hearing that opened what could become an impeachment inquiry.
“In the most predictable sense of combat you could possibly imagine,” Kilmeade said, “nothing was done and Democrats are left beyond embarrassed.”

Florida man wanted in case involving Giuliani associates gets arrested at New York airport
According to a report from the Miami Herald, a former pro golfer from South Florida who was indicted last week on campaign finance charges was arrested by federal authorities this Wednesday.
David Correia, who worked with Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, is now in federal custody and will be arraigned Thursday before U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken in Manhattan federal court, a Justice Department spokesperson said.
Correia was one of four people, including Parnas, Igor Fruman and Andrey Kukushkin, who allegedly conspired to circumvent federal campaign finance laws by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and state office so they could buy potential influence with candidates, campaigns, and the candidates’ governments, according to the indictment.
Ex-GOP lawmaker will run for Senate in Kansas — as a Democrat
A Kansas state lawmaker who left the Republican Party last year will run next year for the U.S. Senate -- as a Democrat.
State Sen. Barbara Bollier (D-Mission Hills) will run for the seat held since 1997 by the retiring Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), reported the Associated Press.
Republicans have not lost a U.S. Senate race in Kansas since 1932, but Democrats are feeling more confident with the victories last year of Gov. Laura Kelly and Rep. Sharice Davids.
Hypocrisy or stupidity? Trump’s utterly clueless sons rail against Hunter Biden’s nepotism
Former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday, and when asked if he thought foreign companies and investment banks would have hired him if his name wasn't Biden he said, "Probably not." He is correct. The younger Biden had little to no experience in the businesses for which he was paid big salaries. He was hired because he is the son of a powerful person, clearly in hopes that they would have some influence with the father and impress their customers with the fact that they were so close to someone with influence.
That reeks of class privilege and it is incredibly common in American business and politics. I don't think I have ever worked anywhere in my life where cronyism, nepotism and influence-peddling weren't present in some form or another. Hiring some ne'er-do-well relative is one of the ways rich and powerful people scratch each other's backs — and, not incidentally, ensure that the quasi-aristocracy of the one percent is perpetuated. If anything, what's uncommon is for some scion of the powerful to openly admit he only got the job was because of his name. Usually, they fatuously insist their "success" is due to their own unique brilliance and talent.
