GOP senator furiously tap-dances away from questions about Rudy Giuliani: ‘He’s a free-range chicken’

Published

A Republican senator tossed out some colorful colloquialisms as he tap-danced around questions about Rudy Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine.

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney claims he has essentially been acting as a private emissary between the U.S. State Department and Ukraine, which Giuliani and Trump have been pressuring to dig up dirt on Joe Biden, but Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) did not want to discuss those dealings in an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“I was with Chuck Todd yesterday, and Chuck asked me about Mr. Giuliani, and my response was, I don’t really want to go there,’ Kennedy said. “I mean no disrespect, I have never met Mr. Giuliani, but I think I said, and I meant it, he is wild as a March hare. I can’t be responsible — he’s a smart guy, but he’s a free range chicken. I mean, he kind of gets on out there.”

Kennedy’s metaphors amused the show’s co-hosts, but MSNBC’s Willie Geist pressed the Louisiana Republican to say whether he was troubled by reports that Giuliani has been running a shadow policy toward Ukraine on behalf of the president.

“Well, if it’s true, sure, but there are going to be all kind of allegations,” Kennedy said.

Geist asked the senator if he was questioning the reports on Giuliani’s efforts.

“I’m not going there, Willie,” he said.

A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."

Trump faces a ‘personnel time bomb’ as his complicit officials get hauled before Congress: columnist

Published

President Trump's prospects for a second term are threatened by two kinds of people: Those "who have either had enough of him or are being forced by subpoena to share what they’ve seen," according to a new Washington Post opinion piece by Paul Waldman.

Waldman writes that it isn't Trump's top administration officials who are threatening his presidency; it's the lesser known professionals who are "so distant from the Oval Office that Trump probably doesn’t even know they exist" -- one example being former US Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.

OANN anchor goes down in flames for reporting Christopher Columbus saved natives with Christianity

Published

on

One America News Network anchor Liz Wheeler took on history this week when she suggested that Christopher Columbus actually ended atrocities against Native Americans by bringing Christianity to America.

In a series of eye-popping tweets on Monday, Wheeler decided to celebrate Columbus Day by whitewashing the explorer's legacy.

"Christopher Columbus didn't commit genocide," she wrote. "Within 200 years of Columbus's arrival, 95% of the 20M Native Americans died... from disease. Smallpox, flu, tuberculosis, malaria, plague, measles, cholera."

"Tragic, definitely. But mass murder by Columbus? Not even close," Wheeler added.
