Last week, President Trump launched into an extended Twitter attack against Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Ed Henry, after he dared to ask conservative radio host Mark Levin if he was “okay” with Trump’s pressuring the Ukraine president to investigate his political rivals. Now, Henry is seemingly trying to get back in Trump’s good graces.
After the Sunday segment with Levin, Trump began retweeting random Twitter users who praised Levin for lashing out at Henry over his question. One tweet shared by Trump referred to the Fox host as a “lying sh*t head.” But on Friday, as the Daily Beast points out, Henry was back to praising the President.
@foxandfriends Mark Levin sure put that lying shit head Ed Henry in his place didn’t he?

According to Henry, Trump openly calling on China to investigate the Bidens is just another example of him being “honest and transparent,” adding that Trump is “not hiding that he wants an investigation.”
“The question is going to be, was it tied to U.S. aid to Ukraine, could they prove that?” Henry said. “So far there has been no evidence of that.”
“The president is going to have to make sure the facts are on his side though,” he continued. “He has been honest and transparent publicly about how he wants this investigated and by the way it’s put a spotlight on Joe and Hunter Biden in a way that the way the Democrats didn’t want.”
During the Sunday segment, Levin exploded at Henry, saying his question about Trump pressuring foreign governments to investigate his political rivals was “not honest.”

The View hosts shudder at creepy-crawly accounts of bedbugs at Trump’s club hosting G7
President Donald Trump awarded a government contract to his struggling Florida resort to host next year's G7 summit, and "The View" co-hosts cringed at accounts of the club's bedbug infestation.
The White House insists the president won't make money off the deal, but whatever free advertising he's getting from the most likely unconstitutional venture is being undercut by reminders of a settlement Trump Organization reached with a guest who was bitten by bedbugs.
Clinton drops a stunning claim: Russia is grooming a 2020 Democrat to launch third-party presidential run
Hillary Clinton just dropped a bombshell.

Russia knows they “they can’t win without a third-party candidate,” Clinton told David Plouffe on his podcast Campaign HQ, as Mediaite reports.
Kellyanne Conway accused of violating Hatch Act at least 50 times this year — on Twitter alone
According to a report from Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway has "surpassed 50 violations of the Hatch Act on Twitter alone this past year."
Explaining the numbers, the report states, "CREW’s report on Conway’s continued violations outlines five categories of tweets that violate the Hatch Act: attacking or mocking Democratic presidential candidates, attacking the Democratic Party, promoting President Trump's re-election, promoting the Republican Party, and attacking President Trump's political adversaries. Conway has multiple violations in each category," before noting that Twitter's Terms of Service indicates one of Trump's closest aides is in violation and should have her account suspended.
