‘Yeah, I don’t know’: Defeated Meghan McCain admits she can’t justify Trump’s blatant lie about Rudy Giuliani

Published

on

The hosts of ABC’s “The View” took a blowtorch to President Donald Trump’s flagrant lie about not ordering personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to travel to Ukraine.

After playing a clip of the president denying he had anything to do with Giuliani’s Ukraine trips to radio host Bill O’Reilly, co-host Joy Behar mocked the president for saying that Giuliani might have traveled to Ukraine to help out some other unspecified clients.

“Rudy has other criminals he has to represent!” she joked.

“At one point, I thought Rudy was only representing him!” added co-host Whoopi Goldberg. “That’s what he said!”

Co-host Meghan McCain seemed to meekly provide some cover for the president by portraying Giuliani as a loose cannon who may have legitimately been acting on his own.

“I think the problem is he doesn’t seem entirely in control of himself in interviews,” she said. “That’s why I have distrust for him, because he seems so manic and frenetic when he’s speaking on this, and his timelines are really off, so I think he’s a completely irrational actor in all this.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin, however, threw cold water on this theory by saying there’s no way the president’s personal attorney would have traveled to Ukraine claiming to be working on the president’s behalf without the president’s blessing.

“Who would believe Rudy was acting on his own, and went rogue?” she asked.

“Yeah, I don’t know,” McCain admitted.

WATCH: New Zealand prime minister unfazed as quake hits during an interview

Published

on

A moderate 5.6-magnitude earthquake rattled New Zealand's North Island early Monday but failed to crack Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's trademark composure as she conducted a live television interview.

The quake struck just off the coast before 8:00 am local time (2000 Sunday GMT) at a depth of about 52 kilometres (32 miles) near Levin, about 90 kilometres north of Wellington, the US Geological Survey said.

St John Ambulance and New Zealand Police both said there were no initial reports of injuries or damage. There was no tsunami warning.

But there was sustained shaking in Wellington, where Ardern was being interviewed on breakfast television from parliament's Beehive building, which is designed to absorb seismic forces by swaying slightly on its foundations.

US farmers are starting to worry as crop prices dip during COVID-19 crisis: ‘It’s kind of glum’

Published

Dave Burrier steered his tractor through a field, following a GPS map as he tried to plant as much corn as possible amid the yellow and green rye covering the ground.

Striving to get a massive yield out of his crops in rural Maryland is how Burrier hopes to make it through yet another uncertain year, beset by market disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and renewed trade tensions between the United States and China.

"We've had so much price erosion that we're basically at below the cost of production. We've got to figure out how to manage and turn a profit," Burrier told AFP.

‘It’s the first time I’ve played golf in almost 3 months’: Trump makes excuses for golfing during coronavirus pandemic

Published

on

President Donald Trump was blasted on Sunday for playing golf during the coronavirus pandemic, a dramatic economic recession and after proclaiming churches "essential."

Instead of joining his voters sitting in the pews, Trump went for the links, which drew criticisms for the hypocrisy.

"Sleepy Joe’s representatives have just put out an ad saying that I went to play golf (exercise) today. They think I should stay in the White House at all times. What they didn’t say is that it’s the first time I’ve played golf in almost 3 months, that Biden was constantly vacationing, relaxing & making shady deals with other countries, & that Barack was always playing golf, doing much of his traveling in a fume spewing 747 to play golf in Hawaii - Once even teeing off immediately after announcing the gruesome death of a great young man by ISIS!" tweeted Trump.
