Chris Matthews was caught on hot mic audio mocking Hillary Clinton and then joking that he should have brought along date rape drugs for his interview with the the former Secretary of State. The Cut obtained the footage, which was taken on the set of his MSNBC show Hardball while he filmed from Iowa is January 2016 during the Democratic primary in that state between Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. ´Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?´ asks Matthews at the top of the tape, putting on a posh accent as he is handed a bottle of water that
After featuring the fact that he got a tingle up his leg when he was near Obama, and now his obvious delight over saying that he should gobble down a Cosby date rape pill before interviewing Queen Hillary, you have to figure that this guy is a complex under the covers pervert.
Congressman Mark Sanford, R-South Carolina, says President Donald Trump’s new tariffs on imported solar panels and large washing machines are a mistake. On Monday, the Trump administration imposed a tariff of 30-percent on most imported solar panels, and tariffs of up to 50-percent on large residential washing machines made overseas. “If increasing tariffs were the road to prosperity, then a whole host of economically forgotten places around the world would be vibrant. They are not,” Sanford said. “Increased tariffs have proved themselves to sound great but set countries on a financial road to ruin. This is shortsighted and will cost American jobs.” The
Republican senator is claiming on Tuesday that an FBI informant told Congress that a ‘secret society’ formed by agents of the bureau held off-site meetings after Donald Trump’s election. Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, told Fox News that the development is indicative of ‘corruption of the highest levels of the FBI.’ ‘That secret society - we have an informant that´s talking about a group that were holding secret meetings off-site,’ Johnson said. ‘There is so much smoke here.’ ‘A secret society?’ Fox News host Bret Baier asked Johnson. ‘Secret meetings off-site of the Justice Department? And you have an informant saying that?’ ‘Correct,’
TSUNAMI warnings issued after a huge 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Alaska this morning have since been downgraded to advisories after the entire US west coast was put on alert. The quake struck 157 miles (256km) south-east of Chiniak, Alaska, at 9.31am GMT (12.31am local time) on Tuesday. People on Kodiak Island have been urged to stay away from the coast after the quake struck just 175 miles away. The quake prompted a tsunami warning for parts of Alaska and Canada and a tsunami watch for the entire US west coast, the US Tsunami Warning System said. A tsunami watch
President Donald Trump has said that he wants a ´big win for everyone´ at the negotiating table just hours after signing a bill to end the government shutdown. ´Big win for Republicans as Democrats cave on Shutdown. Now I want a big win for everyone, including Republicans, Democrats and DACA, but especially for our Great Military and Border Security,´ Trump tweeted Monday night. ´Should be able to get there. See you at the negotiating table!´ he added. The government shutdown ended earlier on Monday after the president signed a short-term spending bill that will fund the government through February 8.
A group of 16 Senate Democrats – including some with potential presidential ambitions – voted against a resolution that ended the three-day government shutdown. Many of the holdouts said they did not trust President Donald Trump to come up with a deal to help DREAMers who came to the country illegally as children. Others weren´t satisfied by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell´s statement of his intention to bring up immigration legislation within 18 weeks – in a statement that included plenty of wiggle room for the Republican. ´My concern with the three-week extension adopted today is that the Republican leadership will fail to
The 24-year-old recent college graduated appointed to a top position in the White House drug policy office has come under scrutiny after it was revealed he fudged details on the resume he submitted for the position. Taylor Weyeneth´s scanty resume was published by the Washington Post, who noted that it was not only riddled with inaccuracies, but that he was fired from his last job due to his inability to show up to work. Weyeneth was appointed as deputy chief of staff at the Office of National Drug Policy. He was appointed about a year after receiving his undergraduate degree from St
We’re not all like that, Mr. Trump Democrats proved again on Friday that they “don’t play well with others,” so like typical spoiled brats they took their marbles and went home—and shut down the United States Government. Republicans refused to play their game of Immigration Chicken. For Democrats, it’s Our Way or the Highway. They want illegals in. They want Trump out. That’s the game. We shouldn’t pick on anyone in particular, but… Dick Durbin is the kid you hated in school. When the teacher asked who threw that spitball, young Durbin raised his arm and pointed at you. Now he’s grown up. He’s
You’ve got to feel for Robert Mueller. The man overseeing the special investigation into Russian election meddling is by all accounts a non-partisan straight shooter, the model image of a public-minded civil servant. Drafted to lead politically polarizing investigation, working under the beady eyes of distrustful congressional Republicans, Mueller has striven to keep his team’s conduct as unimpeachable as possible by bringing on some of America’s sharpest legal minds to check his own work and keeping public comments to a minimum. Imagine how Mueller feels, then, to have to answer so frequently for the partisans and incompetents surrounding him. The special counsel’s biggest
Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump
Congressional investigators believe they are barely beginning to answer the questions raised by the text messages between the FBI´s Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. For several reasons: 1) Strzok and Page were more prolific texters than anyone knew. In a statement late Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said FBI investigators have found "over 50,000 texts" in their review of Strzok-Page communications. 2) Even with all those texts, the FBI says it cannot find the couple´s messages between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017 — a critical time in the Trump-Russia affair. It´s probably safe to say there is not a single
New text messages from anti-Trump FBI agents reviewed by investigators reportedly make reference to a "secret society," in what could be the nail in the coffin for special counsel Robert Mueller´s Russia investigation. Investigators have reviewed 50,000 text messages on FBI servers looking for all exchanges between anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page during the 2016 election, Fox News reported. The revelation comes as investigators are seeking the whereabouts of approximately five months´ worth of text messages between Page and Strzok. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy told Fox News on Monday that one
The mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month was somber as Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Bremmer began with a show-stopping line:"If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018." The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump´s move away from global leadership, and China´s eagerness to fill the
Chuck Schumer is taking his big spending boost for Donald Trump’s border wall off the table. The Senate minority leader, through an aide, informed the White House on Monday that he was retracting the offer he made last week to give Trump well north of the $1.6 billion in wall funding Trump had asked for this year, according to two Democrats. And now they say Trump will simply not get a better deal than that on his signature campaign promise. Schumer “took it off,” said Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), the No. 2 Senate Democrat. “He called the White House yesterday and said
Calling the Trump administration’s tax reform plan a “middle-class tax increase,” two California lawmakers introduced a bill that would force large companies to fork over half of their expected savings to the state. Assemblymen Kevin McCarty and Phil Ting, both Democrats, introduced Assembly Constitutional Amendment 22, which calls for a 10 percent surcharge on companies with a net earnings over $1 million. The plan could potentially raise billions for the state´s social services programs. “It is unconscionable to force working families to pay the price for tax breaks and loopholes benefiting corporations and wealthy individuals,” Ting said in a statement,
