Sen. Mitt Romney blasted President Donald Trump Saturday for “unprecedented, historic corruption” in commuting Roger Stone’s prison sentence.Even as most other Republicans held their tongues, the Utah senator slammed Trump for trying to save his own skin by protecting Stone from punishment.“Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president,” Romney tweeted.Stone was convicted last year of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstruction of an official proceeding.He lashed out at Romney on S...
Fox News panelists rush to cut off Jesse Watters after he says Kamala Harris may be having 'a typical female problem'
Panelists on Fox News' "The Five" rushed to cut off Jesse Watters on Thursday after he pondered whether Vice President Kamala Harris was having a "typical female problem."
The remark came during a discussion about Harris claiming that she felt she was in a "bubble" in Washington D.C., which prompted Watters to accuse her of not feeling grateful enough for the position she's in.
"She has her jet, she has a chef, she can move mountains if she wants to affect policy," he said. "I like that bubble! It's a cozy bubble! I wouldn't try to get out of that bubble."
Things got more dicey from there, however, as Watters started musing about whether Harris's sex was playing a role in her dissatisfaction.
"I’m sorry to say this, but many people are saying this -- I am not saying this, but many are saying! -- this sounds like a typical female problem," he said.
This prompted audible groans of protest from fellow panelists Jeanine Pirro and Dana Perino, who both tried to get Watters to stop talking about "typical female problems."
"Jesse, stop it!" Pirro pleaded with him, even as he kept saying that Harris was too concerned about her "feelings."
Watch the video below.

I\u2019m saying this is what people are telling me!"\n\nDana and Jeanine quickly try to cut him off.pic.twitter.com/o8oqITN5bl— Justin Baragona (@Justin Baragona) 1643323976
Republicans 'obliterated their own credibility' by attacking SCOTUS nominee who hasn't even been picked yet: Psaki
On Thursday, according to Forbes, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki hit back at Republicans who have pre-emptively attacked President Joe Biden's Supreme Court nomination without him even having made his selection, saying that they have "obliterated their own credibility" on the issue.
"Biden will 'work in good faith with senators of both parties' to choose a Supreme Court nominee, Psaki said Thursday, and slammed Republicans characterizing Biden’s nominee as 'radical, before they know literally anything about who she is,'" reported Alison Durkee. "She also hit back at Republicans who have criticized Biden’s commitment to nominating the first Black woman to the court, saying suggestions that Black female candidates are somehow less qualified are 'ludicrous.'"
Already some Republicans are attacking the process, with National Republican Senatorial Committee chair Rick Scott (R-FL) claiming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will make Democrats "walk the plank" to confirm a "radical liberal with extremist views."
Biden's commitment to nominating a Black woman to the Supreme Court dates back to the campaign, and is part of a broader push by the president to increase the diversity of the federal bench, both racial and professional — a counterbalance to the years Republicans and the Federalist Society have spent creating a system to shuttle right-wing legal activists onto the bench.
Two prominently discussed candidates include D.C. appellate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, whom Biden appointed to that role last year, and California Supreme Court Justice Leondra Kruger.
During a segment on Fox News this Thursday, NYPD officer and commentator Joseph Imperatrice reacted to recent news that Democratic Rep. and "Squad" member Cori Bush's car was struck by gunfire. Despite the fact that she was not in the parked car when it was hit, Bush said that "any act of gun violence shakes your soul."
But according to Imperatrice, he'd like progressive lawmakers to have more experiences like Bush's.
“The harsh truth is we need the lawmakers to be victims,” replied Imperatrice, the founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC.
“We need them to understand when the worst situation possible hits them, and then they can turn around and say, ‘Wow, maybe it’s an issue. Maybe I need to wake up and do my job and change things for the better,’” he added. “I’m not praying any of these people get hurt or harmed, but they need to see firsthand how bad the streets really are.”
Fox News anchor Griff Jenkins made sure to slightly walk back Imperatrice's comments.
“Joe, of course, we would never wish any harm whatsoever on any American, let alone a politician we disagreed with,” Jenkins said. “But the instances we did see -- two instances of carjacking, fortunately, everyone was ok—maybe it will change their minds. Who knows?”
Reacting to the segment, Bush posted the clip to Twitter, writing, "But??? Fox News is literally out here advocating for me to face violence. I'm just gonna keep working to get justice. Y'all stay mad and be blessed."
