Fox Business producers mock reporter with ‘womp-womp’ sound effect after she corrects host on Home Alone 2 edit

Fox Business anchor Charles Payne jokingly suggested the Canadian Broadcast Corporation had cut out President Donald Trump’s cameo in “Home Alone 2” for political reasons — at least a year before he announced his first campaign.

The president complained that prime minister Justin Trudeau may have ordered the edit over their disagreements on trade and NATO, and Payne suggested the CBC suffered from “Trump derangement syndrome” before his election, reported The Daily Beast.

“So they had Trump derangement syndrome before everyone else?” Payne said, as he filled in as host on “Varney and Co.”

Correspondent Kristina Partsinevelos, who had previously chided her colleagues on “Fox & Friends” for “fulfilling a stereotype” by blaming the edit on “Trump derangement syndrome,” corrected Payne.

“That’s the narrative, (but) that’s unfortunately not the case,” Partsinevelos said. “This movie was a little too long. They chopped off eight minutes. This is seriously the case. I’m not trying to spin it or anything. This is the story here.”

Payne seemed unpersuaded, and as Partsinevelos spoke the show’s producers played a “womp-womp” sound effect from “Saturday Night Live” skits featuring the character Debbie Downer.

“He’s well known, ‘The Apprentice’ was popular in Canada,” she added, as the producers again mocked her with the sound effect.

“The movie will never be the same again,” Payne said.

Morning Joe destroys your Facebook friends’ excuses for voting for Trump

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said most of the people he grew up hate President Donald Trump, but they're voting for him anyway.

The "Morning Joe" host said they share many of his concerns about the president and his fitness for office, but he said they always offer excuses for holding their nose and voting to give him four more years.

"It's good talking to them and just saying, so why are you voting for this man?" Scarborough said. "'Well, he's a terrible guy, he's a horrible example for my kids, I'd never invite him over to the house, he's despicable -- I hate him, I just hate him,' but and then, fill in the blank, AOC or Nancy Pelosi or Bernie Sanders or regulations or tax cuts or 401(k)s, and I say, so, well, we have right now a president of the United States who is demanding that his attorney general arrest the former vice president of the United States, his chief political competitor. This is something that happens or happened in the former Soviet Union, this is something that happens still in Russia."

Trump ‘is hemorrhaging support’ and is flailing badly to win it back: reporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in the polls, and one veteran journalist said that he seems clueless about how to stop the bleeding.

Journalist Alex Wagner, the host of Showtime's "The Circus," told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's flailing attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci and "60 Minutes'" Lesley Stahl are not part of some grand strategy to stage a comeback in the 2020 presidential election.

"The idea that President Trump has somehow hatched a multi-pronged plan to make a closing argument in the last remaining days of the election is a fallacy," she said. "He is hemorrhaging support among suburban women and seniors, and what is he doing? Taking on a fight with the elder statesmen of the most venerable news brand in America. She is an older woman at precisely the time he needs to be getting women and seniors."

Progressives unite for last-ditch effort to delay Amy Coney Barrett vote — by impeaching Bill Barr

Published

on

Progressive activists are urging House Democrats to essentially kill two birds with one stone by impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr -- which would delay the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

"Attorney General Barr has acted to subvert the laws that he, as our nation's chief federal law enforcement official, is duty-bound to uphold," more than 20 progressive groups signed in a joint letter.

"Attorney General Barr has made a career out of undermining our democracy and it is pellucidly clear that he has been ramping up efforts to undermine the upcoming elections and invalidate the votes of millions of Americans," the groups wrote.
