White House invites Trump-loving reporter back to the briefing room after she’s booted for flouting COVID-19 rules

Published

The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) this week voted to expel Trump-loving One America News reporter Chanel Rion after she refused to follow pandemic social distancing rules — but now she’s been invited back just one day later.

OAN’s Jennifer Franco tweeted on Thursday that Rion “has been invited by [White House Press Secretary] Stephanie Grisham to attend today’s coronavirus press briefing, despite being voted out the rotation by the WHCA yesterday for violating social distancing guidelines.”

Rion has become notorious for asking questions during press briefings that both praise President Donald Trump and cast aspersions on her fellow reporters.

She also has a history of promoting wild conspiracy theories that claim that the coronavirus was created in a lab in North Carolina with the financial help of Dr. Anthony Fauci to bring down the president.

Kawaski Trawick was shot and killed in his Bronx apartment by a New York Police Department officer on April 14, 2019. The NYPD said Trawick had charged at officers with a knife. Video of the shooting shows the officers had escalated the situation — and that one officer then shot Trawick over his more-experienced partner’s objections.

While the NYPD has never released video of the shooting, the Bronx District Attorney’s Office released footage of it last month, along with a detailed report. ProPublica separately obtained parts of the videos.

The View’s Ana Navarro drops the hammer on election challenge: ‘One more Trump fraud’

Published

on

"The View" co-host Ana Navarro called out President Donald Trump's efforts to undermine U.S. democracy as just another "grift."

The president's efforts to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden have set Republicans against each other in Georgia, where both Senate seats -- and the GOP majority -- remain up for grabs in a Jan. 5 runoff.

"When your enemy is shooting themselves, don't get in the way," Navarro said. "Look, if I were [Sen. Kelly] Loeffler or [Sen. David] Perdue, frankly, I would draw the curtains, bolt the doors, shut off the lights and ask somebody to wake me up when he's gone."
