‘Babbling and incoherent’: Internet stunned by Kudlow’s trainwreck appearance on CNN

- Commentary

While no one accused White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow of being drunk on the air this morning (well a few did), he definitely seemed unprepared to speak with “State of the Union” fill-in host Dana Bash, seemingly unable to get his talking points and numbers straight when asked about Donald Trump’s plan to supplement unemployment payments.

Pressed multiple times about what the nation’s unemployed can expect on a weekly basis, Kudlow stated $400, then in the next breath said $800 and then $1,200 without being able to explain where he was getting his numbers from.

Twitter users were just as baffled by the CNN host who finally gave up trying to bring clarity to the issue, with one Twitter commenter calling the economic adviser “incoherent.”

Small donor contributions to Democratic Senate campaigns have skyrocketed after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

"From Alaska to Maine to the Carolinas, Democratic strategists working on Senate campaigns described a spontaneous outpouring of donations the likes of which they had never seen, allowing Democrats the financial freedom to broaden the map of pickup opportunities, or press their financial advantage in top battlegrounds already saturated with advertising," The New York Times reported Monday.

The latest bombshell book on the Trump administration reveals new details on the special counsel investigation into the president's relationship with Moscow.

"The team led by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, failed to do everything it could to determine what happened in the 2016 election, shying away from steps like subpoenaing President Trump and scrutinizing his finances out of fear he would fire them, one of Mr. Mueller’s top lieutenants argued in the first insider account of the inquiry," The New York Times reported Monday.

2020 Election

Jeffrey Toobin warns Republicans in NC and WI could declare Trump the winner — regardless of the vote

Published

On CNN Monday, chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin warned of a possible scenario in which close states with right-wing legislatures could find a pretext to overturn the election and hand their electoral votes to President Donald Trump.

"What is so remarkable is how many different tentacles there are," said Toobin. "Bush v. Gore was just about Florida. But there are now literally 200 lawsuits pending around the country about various issues relating to voting."

"Let me just give you one example of the issues that are out there," said Toobin. "Most people don't know this, but under the Constitution, a state legislature can decide to award the electoral votes to the candidate of its choice, regardless of the voters. So if you have contested elections in North Carolina, in Wisconsin, states with active and very conservative Republican majorities, they can say, you know, this election is too chaotic, we are awarding our electoral votes to Donald Trump. That is a possibility that exists. And people need to start focusing on it now, because it is a real possibility."
