Sen. John McCain exploded on Fox News’ Peter Doocy on Wednesday for asking him if he would oppose everything that President Trump asks him to do. Doocy asked Sen. McCain if his relationship with the president is “so frayed” that McCain would “not support anything that he comes to you and asks for?” McCain snapped, “Why would you say something that stupid? Why would you ask something that dumb?” “My job as a United States senator — you mean I am somehow going to behave in a way that I’m going to block everything because of some personal disagreement?” McCain said incredulously.
Comments: What a despicable, rude, contemptible old jerk he is. Good for Peter Doocy for asking that question. It ticked off McCain because he knew there was truth contained in that question. McCain sounds weak and horrible. He needs to retire now!
Well, the question is dumb only to the extent that everyone already knows the answer is yes - McCain will obstruct Trump in every way possible. So - why even ask the question? McCain didn´t really answer the question, BTW. He´s driven by revenge - or whatever emotional state in which he resides at any given moment. I absolutely fail to understand how he gets elected - though graft and corruption can provide answers to many questions. He´s the guy that, at the behest of the drug companies, tried to push a bill to outlaw over the counter vitamins & food supplements. He also tried to abolish the presumptive injury cases inflicted by agent orange in Vietnam, which would have prevented VA care for thousands of Vietnam veterans. So - I guess he hates Trump, healthy people and veterans. Putz!
No surprise at all at Sen. Tantrum McScamnesty´s behavior.
I have maintained for the last 8 years that if Sen. McScamnesty had accidentally (and believe me it would have been unintended...) beaten The Obammunist in the 2008 election, the country would have ended up in about the same condition as those eight years of Obammunism wrought.
Dear John, Your hate and anger is only going to hasten your death. If you want to get every moment you can from your last days, you should retire from public life and spend time with your loved ones. Raising your blood pressure is not helping you.
Thanks Peter Doocy, you managed to point out what an idiot and a presidential looser looks like. Perhaps McPain should explode over the dumb interviews his prima donna daughter gives. Speaking of dumb!
Second question, can anyone just walk up to you and hand you a fake ´report´ and you run with it? What did you know about the person handing you the report and why didn´t you investigate it, or did you initiate it?
Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was
Ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke, countless men have been accused of sexual misconduct that ranges from verbal harassment, assault, rape, and child molestation. It’s common knowledge that such abuse isn’t just a problem in Hollywood but in our society as a whole. And in recent days, it’s been made clear that it’s a problem in politics. (Snip) While the media has been primarily focused on such titillating headlines, there hasn’t been nearly enough focus on the recent revelation that Congress has paid a whopping $15 million in sexual harassment and discrimination settlements over the past 20 years. And
At the end of his program last night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity decided that Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore had met his 24-hour ultimatum to provide sufficient evidence and address the inconsistencies in his defense of the accusations of teen sex abuse made against him. (Snip) During a Deadline: White House panel discussion this afternoon, MSNBC analyst John Heilemann absolutely laid into both Hannity and Fox News over what he feels is obviously biased coverage given to accusations against liberals versus conservatives. With the panel noting that it is likely that Fox News’ primetime coverage will be all over Sen.
“Morning Joe” offered some trollish praise onWednesday to Shepard Smith, the longtime Fox News anchor who offered a systemic take-down on Tuesday of the Hillary Clinton Uranium 1 scandal that other organs of his network have obsessed over for weeks. “Yesterday, one of Fox’s leading journalists, Shep Smith, took on the allegations and by extension his own network,” Mika Brzezinski crowed. The show then proceeded to play Smith’s lengthy analysis, which he said debunked claims that Clinton had approved the deal which gave a Russian company control of large U.S. uranium stockpiles in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation
Senator Al Franken’s past jokes about rape and other forms of inappropriate sexual conduct resurfaced Thursday after a radio anchor accused him of forcefully kissing her during a rehearsal and of groping her breasts while she slept on a flight from Afghanistan following a USO tour in December 2006. (Snip) Franken once joked about child rape during a comedic roast of film director Rob Reiner. Franken laid out a scene where Reiner’s father, Carl, would invite famous friends over to rape his son. “On a typical night, Carl would slip into Rob’s bed, roll him over, swab him down and
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) after his bribery and corruption trial ended in a mistrial. “Because of the seriousness of these charges, I am calling on the Senate Ethics committee to immediately investigate Senator Menendez’s actions which led to his indictment," McConnell said in a statement. He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history." Menendez´s bribery and corruption trial ended with the judge declaring a mistrial on Thursday after jurors
A Democrats-only Hispanic caucus denied Republican Carlos Curbelo’s membership request Thursday after weeks of speculation and a bitter dispute between the Florida congressman and members of the group. What first appeared to be a drama-free request by Curbelo to join the Congressional Hispanic Caucus turned into a nasty feud that left many members of the caucus agitated. Some ended up accusing the Republican of playing politics. "After due consideration, the CHC determined not to accept Rep. Curbelo’s request to join the caucus,” said CHC spokesperson Carlos Paz, Jr. “The CHC isn’t just an organization for Hispanics; it is a caucus
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday called for an ethics probe of Sen. Al Franken in the wake of allegations that he groped and kissed a Los Angeles TV host without her consent, as fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill condemned the Minnesota senator. “Sexual harassment is never acceptable and must not be tolerated,” Schumer, D-N.Y. said in a statement Thursday. “I hope and expect that the Ethics Committee will fully investigate this troubling incident as they should with any credible allegation of sexual harassment.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., first called for the ethics probe, and encouraged Schumer to do
Key Republicans and Democrats announced a significant gun bill Thursday, striking a deal to push federal agencies to report more domestic violence records to the gun-buying background check system. The deal includes Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican whose state suffered the recent tragic church shooting, as well as Sens. Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal, two Democrats from Connecticut who have been among the most prominent gun-control supporters. “For years agencies and states haven’t complied with the law, failing to upload these critical records without consequence,” Mr. Cornyn said. The new bill would punish agencies that fail to report their
Shortly before last year’s election, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrote an email on his official government account stating that the Hillary Clinton email probe had been given “special” status, according to documents released Wednesday. McCabe’s Oct. 23, 2016, email to press officials in the FBI said the probe was under the control of a small group of high-ranking people at the FBI’s headquarters in Washington. “As I now know the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team,” McCabe wrote in the email. He said he had no input when the Clinton email investigation started in summer
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough will release a President Donald Trump-inspired EP titled "A Very Drumpf Christmas" on Friday. An advance copy generously provided to Business Insider showed artwork depicting Trump as the Grinch. The EP includes three songs, complete with sleigh-bell jingles, lyrics about reindeer, and a track titled "The Drumpf," a jazzy, ballad-tempo cut seemingly indebted to "You´re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." "Oh you can save our Christmas from going kerplumf, from that orange creep that children call the Drumpf?" the band sings on "The Drumpf," which also references former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. The release
The Army´s top officer said Wednesday that the service had "rescinded" a controversial memo permitting people with a history of severe mental illness to seek waivers allowing them to join up. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley told reporters the memo was "unauthorized" and its author did not have the authority to change the Army´s recruitment policy. "It was rescinded last night," Milley said of the memo, which was dated Sept. 7 of this year and initially reported by USA Today on Sunday. "There wasn’t a change in policy," Milley added. "There cannot be a change in policy by
In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities. On a good day, I´m elated — empowered and inspired by the many women who have courageously opened the floodgates to help end the shroud of silence and shame that surrounds victims of sexual assault and harassment. I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change. On a bad day, I´m despondent — devastated and angry that so many of the people who were rightly outraged over Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey were utterly disbelieving
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC. When Tweeden returned from the tour, she noticed a photo from the tour where Franken has his hands on her breasts and is smiling into the camera. “You knew exactly what you were doing. You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both
When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A
Environment: This week, thousands of scientists issued a bleak and terrifying "second notice" to mankind about how we will destroy the planet unless we take "urgent" action. If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about. In an article published in the journal Bioscience, 15,364 scientists warned that we are "jeopardizing our future" and that "immediate action" is needed to "safeguard our imperiled biosphere." "Soon it will be too late to shift course away from our failing trajectory, and time is running out," the scientists say. The article
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
It was a rather cagey move via Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The longtime anti-Trumper was barely able to conceal his smirk as he informed the media that should Roy Moore win next month’s Alabama special election to fill the vacant Senate seat created when Jeff Sessions became the U.S. Attorney General, it would be up to President Trump to make the final decision regarding whether or not Moore would be allowed to actually serve in the Senate. (Snip) Democrats in Congress are said to already be preparing a full-on “If Roy Moore isn’t fit to be a senator then Donald
Papa John´s apologized Tuesday night for comments made by CEO John Schnatter blaming sluggish pizza sales on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. The company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John´s shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago."(Snip) "The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive," it said. "That definitely was not our
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special
President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com. The fundraiser was held at the palatial Upper East Side duplex owned by Dennis Mehiel, a former candidate

Gustav Åhr, who grew up in Long Beach, New York, was reportedly taken to hospital following an overdose, according to music manager Adam Grandmaison.
