Trump sends UK debate off the rails when Nigel Farage decides he must defend sexual assault remarks

Published

The UK heads into a forced election as Prime Minister Boris Johnson failed to create a consensus around a Brexit plan. During a Sunday debate, candidates were asked about their stance on President Donald Trump and what was once a very “special relationship” between Britain and the United States.

One Trump-related question was about his sexual harassment and sexual assault of women and his need to brag about it.

“It can never be acceptable for a man to talk about grabbing a woman’s p*ssy and if you think it is, you should be ashamed of yourself,” said Adam Price during the debate.

But it was the far-right’s Nigel Farage that delivered the “controversy of the night,” according to Paul Brand of ITV.

“Men say dreadful things sometimes” after “a night out with a drink,” said Farage.

House of Commons member Jo Swinson and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon were both outraged, Brand described.

Trump wasn’t drunk when he bragged on the “Access Hollywood” tape about grabbing women. He also wasn’t drunk when he did the grabbing, because Trump doesn’t drink alcohol.

Farage later said that the debate was all about political correctness.

Giuliani’s latest trip to Ukraine opened a new door for prosecutors to go after Trump: MSNBC analyst

Published

on

On MSNBC Saturday afternoon, legal analyst Danny Cevallos explained how Rudy Giuliani's trip to Ukraine to produce anti-impeachment propaganda could end up harming his legal position — by muddying attorney-client privilege with President Donald Trump.

"The only path to legitimacy is if there was a true corruption threat in Ukraine, and specifically if Hunter Biden and Burisma posed a true corruption threat," said Cevallos. "That is why Rudy Giuliani is in Ukraine. He's building that case. So that he can show, bring a news network there, right-leaning news network to do a documentary or investigate this issue and yield factual information that Rudy Giuliani can point to and say, this corruption, this evidence, these facts show that President trump was warranted in requesting an investigation, not generally into corruption, specifically into Hunter Biden. It's the only path that will work for Republicans that passes even remotely any kind of smell test. Even then, it's a bit of a stretch."

Trump declares himself the ‘greatest of all presidents’ in manic tweetstorm attacking Pelosi and Democrats

Published

Donald Trump broke out of his Twitter hibernation on Saturday afternoon just before flying off to Florida for a pair of fundraisers, and used the opportunity to declare himself the "greatest of all presidents."

Attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not passing his signature trade bill, Trump then went after Democrats for trying to impeach him -- saying they were making a big mistake.

On Twitter, the president wrote: ""Hard to believe, but if Nancy Pelosi had put our great Trade Deal with Mexico and Canada, USMCA, up for a vote long ago, our economy would be even better. If she doesn’t move quickly, it will collapse!"

Donald Trump sounds like a complete lunatic because he’s isolated himself in a far-right media bubble

Published

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

If you have an older relative who spends way too much time stewing in the conservative media, you may have experienced a moment when you not only disagreed with him, but you realized that you had no earthly clue what he was going on about. Perhaps it was when he started talking about the UN plot to eliminate golf courses and replace paved roads with bicycle paths. Maybe he stopped you in your tracks with a discourse on why flies were attracted to Barack Obama, or complained about the government insisting on referring to Christians as "Easter-worshippers" or expressed outrage over 9/11 hijackers being given leniency by Muslim jurists.
