The audience for “The View” gasped in disbelief after watching video of indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas dish out devastating allegations against President Donald Trump and his top officials.
The daily talk show opened with a segment on the political feud between Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders, but then moved on to a pair of interviews Parnas gave to MSNBC and CNN.
The Ukraine-born Parnas told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his efforts to pressure his home country’s government to announce an investigation of Joe Biden — and he insisted every move he made was sanctioned by Trump and known by Vice President Mike Pence.
“We would speak every day,” Parnas said. “I knew everything that was going on. After Rudy would speak with the president or come from the White House, I was the first person he briefed.”
The studio audience reacted in shock at that last statement, and host Whoopi Goldberg joked that everyone involved in the scheme was in big trouble.
“My plan is to send pearls to everybody who’s involved so they have something to clutch,” she said. “That’s a lot of pearls.”
Colossal failure of leadership’: Trump ‘unfit’ for pandemic, ‘has blood on his hands’ says Pulitzer Prize winning paper
'Come November, There Must Be a Reckoning for the Lives Lost'
A Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper is responding to President Donald Trump's failure to manage the coronavirus pandemic, and is not holding back. The Boston Globe's editorial board, far from a bastion of far left liberalism, is denouncing the nation's President as "unfit for a pandemic."
"Much of the suffering and death coming was preventable. The president has blood on his hands," the Globe's editorial board writes.
Trump’s much-hyped Walmart and CVS coronavirus testing centers have been a massive flop
During a press conference last month, President Donald Trump brought several corporate bigwigs with him to announce that major retailers Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and Target would all be making their parking lots available to set up drive-through COVID-19 testing centers.
"The goal is for individuals to be able to drive up and be swabbed without having to leave your car," the president said.
It's been nearly three weeks since that announcement, however, and CNN reports that companies have only set up five of these testing centers in the United States so far -- and that none of them are available to the general public.
Trump admin dropped the ball on Pentagon’s offer to deliver thousand of ventilators: report
According to a CNN report this Tuesday, the Defense Department offered two weeks ago to make thousands of ventilators available, but the Trump administration failed to take them up on the offer.
After offering to send 2,000 ventilators to FEMA and HHS, the Pentagon never got the go-ahead to ship them off or any sort of directions on where to send them to.
CNN reports that the Defense Department also made its testing labs available, but still hasn't heard back from the White House.
