The View shreds ‘bully’ Kellyanne Conway for unhinged threat against reporter

Published

The hosts of “The View” on Friday were decidedly unimpressed by White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after she made a series of unhinged threats against a Washington Examiner reporter earlier this week.

While co-host Abby Huntsman said that she understood criticisms of Examiner reporter Caitlin Yilek for publishing what Conway had believed was an off-the-record interview, she said that Conway’s behavior still needed to be called out.

“When you are calling people and you are bullying people, that I will not stand for,” she said. “I have been on the other end of those calls before too, and if you think I’m going to roll over, and you calling me is going to change my opinion, change the way I talk about things at this table, think again.”

Co-host Meghan McCain said it was interesting that Conway tried to call the Examiner, which is a conservative publication, on the assumption that she could steamroll the reporter into changing her coverage.

“They’re not calling me, you know,” she said. “They’re trying to find people to manipulate or bully.”

“Call me, Kellyanne!” co-host Joy Behar cracked.

McCain then went on to say that these types of abusive calls are a phenomenon she’s only seen with the Trump White House.

“These phone calls are highly unusual,” she said. “It’s unique to his henchpeople.”

Maddow destroys ‘bad faith’ complaints about impeachment from Republican Trump supporters

Published

on

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Friday blasted "bad faith" arguments from Republicans about the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky) but without making a coherent point about any of them.

Read the whole stream of consciousness rant to get a sense of what it was like:
