Rev. Al Sharpton celebrated his annual Revvie Awards on his Sunday show, where panelists came clad in tuxedos and gowns. The group discussed their top nominees for the best and worst of 2019.

The group voted on what Sharpton called the “Ridicu-List,” the top things that were the most ridiculous in 2019. The options were Trump’s chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitting to Trump’s quid pro quo, the college admissions bribery scandal, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) suing a fake cow on Twitter, Sean Spicer appearing on “Dancing with the Stars” or President Donald Trump trying to justify his claim Alabama would be hit by a hurricane by changing a NOAA weather map with a Sharpie.

One nominee, however, led to the panel cracking up with laughter. It was Donald Trump Jr., whose book attacking progressives as snowflakes only landed on the New York Times “Bestseller List” because his father made the Republican Party and nine conservative groups purchase it in bulk.

It was Joy Ann Reid who called it part of the “ongoing project to help Donald Trump Jr. be his own man.”

She explained that liberal pundit Molly Jong-Fast introduced her to the concept of a “failson, a son that cannot accomplish anything unless his rich father does something for him.”

“The fact that he needed the RNC to buy all of the books to put him on The New York Times ‘Bestseller List.’ As an author who’s gotten on there by myself, I think that’s hilarious.

Republican strategist Susan Del Percio said that her favorite ridiculous moment came from the day the president woke up and decided that he wanted to buy Greenland.

GOPer threatens to quit party on live TV over QAnon Republicans ‘who think Lord of the Rings is a documentary’

Published

Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) on Sunday slammed members of his own party who believe in conspiracy theories pushed by QAnon.

During an interview on Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Riggleman about "this wacky QAnon conspiracy that has led to some violent actions."

Todd noted that Republican Party had officially endorsed and funded QAnon follower Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress.

"I might as well just piss everybody off," Riggleman replied. "I think if we're doing this, if we're looking at misinformation to pander to a subset of voters, I think we've lost our way."

CNN’s Tapper fires back at White House’s Meadows for personal attack about mask-wearing

Published

on

During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.

After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.

Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’

Published

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.

Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.

"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.

"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
