Published

on

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta reported on Friday that White House aides are unhappy with Ambassador Gordon Sondland for holding up a call with Trump in a restaurant for multiple witnesses to listen.

The details were revealed in bombshell closed-door testimony before Congress on Friday.

Acosta noted the administration was trying to downplay the significance of the call.

“But I will tell you, that the aides of the president are not happy that Gordon Sondland apparently held the phone up so other aides could hear what was going on and the words of the source familiar with the conversations inside the White House, the president speaks loudly, Sondland should know that,” Acosta reported.

“And so there is some consternation inside the White House, Wolf, that aides heard this conversation that was supposed to be going on only between the ambassador and the president,” Acosta added.

“Yeah, Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador of the E.U. could be in big trouble with the president of the United States and his aides, but also in big trouble potentially legally, as well,” Wolf Blitzer added.

MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes blasted Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for white supremacy on Monday.

Hayes played clips of Carlson discussing white supremacy on-air.

"If you were to assemble a list, a hierarchy of concerns, of problems this country faces, where would white supremacy be on the list? Right up there with Russia probably. It is actually not a real problem in America," Carlson falsely claimed. "This is a hoax."

Hayes blasted the segment.

"Tucker Carlson wants you to believe the concern about white supremacy in America is a hoax, which is very convenient for a guy who's show has been dabbling in it for years," Hayes noted. "The truth is that white supremacy is alive and well in this country, on TV and certain corners of the internet where racists get together and post this stuff."

Published

The anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project is moving into Texas, with new spending against Sen. John Cornyn, a major figure in the GOP majority and a close ally of the president.

Cornyn, unhappy about this, lashed out at the group on Twitter.
