Fox’s Chris Wallace schools Trump on The View: When you’re getting called out by a bishop, Mattis and Esper ‘it’s not a good week’

Published

on

Fox News host Chris Wallace told the women of “The View” that it’s clear President Donald Trump is having a really bad week.

Co-host Sunny Hostin asked Wallace if he sees “change” coming. Has America finally reached a tipping point with police brutality that there could be meaningful change?

“Well, when you’re talking about race relations and police, I hope there’s change. I hope there’s reform and improvement. But I can’t say I’m especially hopeful that it’s going to happen. Whoopi, you and I are roughly the same age. You remember 1968. You remember Rodney King. You remember Michael Brown in Ferguson. You remember Eric Garner in New York City. They all have a similar pattern which is that there is a case of undue violence. There are protests and sometimes they devolve into riots. There are calls for reform and we are where we are. George Floyd died, you know, you hope that this time it’s going to be different. I have to say I’m not sure I would bet on it.”

When it comes to his prediction for Trump, Wallace said things aren’t looking great.

“The president has his base and he has his beliefs and he’s entitled to them,” Wallace began. “I would say that the last week was a very bad week for the president in terms of politics, in terms of his potential re-election prospects. When you’re getting called out by the Episcopal bishop of Washington and the Archbishop of the Catholic Church of Washington; when you’re getting called out by Jim Mattis, to the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mike Mullen, and your own current Secretary of Defense [Mike Esper] breaks with you, that’s not a good week. He had some good news on the economy. Clearly — there’s a new poll in the Washington Post that indicates by a two to one margin people don’t think the president has handled the last week properly. His approval ratings have dropped. You can argue as to whether he’s right or wrong, but politically it’s been a bad week.”

The problem isn’t the campaign manager — it’s Trump: Republican analyst

Published

on

Switching up the campaign manager four months before the election when the latest poll shows you 12 points down has nothing to do with the campaign's leadership, Republican analyst Amanda Carpenter explained on CNN Wednesday.

"The problem isn't that Donald Trump has a bad campaigner," said Carpenter in an interview with CNN's Don Lemon. "They're raising tons of money. They have a boatload of surrogates. The problem is that he has a bad presidency. And no one -- no one, no spin master, not Kellyanne Conway, not Brad Parscale can spin the most important number of this election, and that's -- at present, 137,000 dead and rising. And so what we need to see if Donald Trump wants to turn this around is to turn around his white house. And I have four words of advice: More Fauci, less Kayleigh."

Here’s what you need to know about Bill Stepien — the man who just took over Trump’s fledgling campaign

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced that his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, is being shoved out of his role given the failures the campaign has suffered over the past seven months.

In his place, for now, at least, will be Bill Stepien.

If that name sounds familiar, it may be because Stepien was part of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's Bridgegate scandal, where, as punishment to Mayor Mark Sokolich, two of three toll lanes were closed during a Monday morning rush hour and weren't reopened until Friday.

The court case quoted Bill Stepien's name over 700 times, including an email in which he claimed, "It will be a tough November for this little Serbian." The mayor was born in Fort Lee, and his lineage isn't Serbian, it's actually Croatian.

Anti-corruption group files motion in Roger Stone case saying pardon is void due to ‘self dealing’

Published

on

The anti-corruption group Free Speech for the People filed a motion with Judge Amy Berman Jackson opposing the pardon of President Donald Trump's pal, Roger Stone.

According to the organization's president, John Bonifaz, there are "limits to the pardon power" that the president holds, "including when the power is abused for self-dealing purposes." He said that Stone's "commutation violates the Take Care Clause of the Constitution," and thus, should be declared void.
