During a CNN panel discussion on tonight’s debate between Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden, a former adviser to the president suggested Biden’s son, Hunter, should be fair game for attacks which led fellow panelist Ana Navarro to give him a lesson in the first daughter’s corruption and the president’s possible legal problems.
With “New Day” hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota looking on, David Urban said he expected Hunter Biden would be used against his father during the debate.
“If the president brings up Hunter Biden as we have heard some suggest he will repeatedly, how do you think Joe Biden should respond?” Urban challenged Navarro.
“Ivanka Trump,” Navarro shot back. “You want to bring up Hunter Biden, go ahead, go right ahead. I think Joe Biden has an answer for that and I think, right now, Donald Trump has to explain why he had his daughter on his corporate payroll and at the same time was paying her $750,000 in consulting fees. Which is a tax scam — that is a tax scam. How he’s used the bully pulpit of the presidency and the platforms of the government to promote his properties and push money towards his properties, whether it’s the websites or whether it’s trying to hold the — you know, G8 at Doral [country club] or making his hotels and golf courses the place where people go.”
“He’s going to have to explain all that,” she added. “So if he wants to talk about corruption, go ahead — make our day.”

Win or lose — Trump is about to unleash hell
With poll numbers staying put and the odds of a Joe Biden win in Tuesday's election looking good — possibly by a decisive margin — there's mounting dread about how Donald Trump will behave after a defeat. After all, Trump is a sociopathic narcissist with the emotional control of a — well, I won't insult toddlers with the comparison — and he lives in mortal terror of being viewed as a loser. He's already made clear that he will refuses to concede, no matter what, and he's grasping desperately for any way to get legal ballots thrown out so he can steal the election.
GOP senator offended LDS community after likening Trump to a ‘selfless’ Book of Mormon hero: report
Politics and religion are colliding out west after comments a Republican senator made while stumping for the president.
"Sen. Mike Lee drew criticism from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this week after comparing President Donald Trump to Captain Moroni, a heroic and selfless figure in the Book of Mormon," The Arizona Republic reported Friday evening.
"To my Mormon friends, my Latter-day Saint friends, think of him as Captain Moroni," Lee (R-UT) said, pointing to Trump. "He seeks not power, but to pull it down. He seeks not the praise of the world or the ‘fake news,’ but he seeks the well-being and the peace of the American people."
