    Fox News had high praise for Michelle Obama’s address at the Democratic National Convention Monday night. Obama denounced President Donald Trump for creating chaos and division and failing to lead with empathy and competence. She urged Americans to elect former Vice President Joe Biden. “It’s very difficult to try to connect with an audience without an actual audience there with you but she has the ability to connect with people through the screen,” Fox News anchor Dana Perino said. “You got the sense when you talk about authenticity, she has it in spades. “She has that voice, she has clarity,...

    In a new Op-Ed for The Hill, Fox News contributor Juan Williams argues Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic will hurt him with older voters. Williams brings up the examples of Stacey Nagy, who wrote in her husband’s newspaper obituary. “They blame his death…on Trump, Abbott and all the politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives.”

    CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter may have landed himself in hot water, according to the attorney of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann. Last week, Sandmann announced that The Washington Post settled the $250 million defamation lawsuit he filed over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder who had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor. This followed the multimillion dollar settlement agreement CNN reached with the teenager back in January. However, Sandmann's attorney, Lin Wood, spotted a retweet from Stelter of a tweet written by attorney Mark Zaid, who speculated about how...

    **SNIP** WALLACE: Whether it’s in 2021 or 2025, how will you regard your years as President of the United States? TRUMP: I think I was very unfairly treated. From before I even won I was under investigation by a bunch of thieves, crooks. It was an illegal investigation. WALLACE: But what about the good – TRUMP: Russia, Russia, Russia. WALLACE: But what about the good parts, sir? TRUMP: No, no. I want to go this. I have done more than any president in history in the first three and a half years, and I’ve done it suffering through investigations where...

    President Trump said his niece Mary L. Trump “was not exactly a family favorite” and that he and his family “didn’t have a lot of respect or like for her.” Trump made the comments during an exclusive interview on “Fox News Sunday” a few days after his niece’s tell-all, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” set a first-day record for Simon & Schuster after the publisher said Thursday it sold 950,000 copies, including presales. During the interview Trump called his niece’s book “stupid” and “vicious.” Host Chris Wallace noted that one of...

    Fox News host Chris Wallace confronted President Trump during an interview to air Sunday, where he accused President Trump of lying about presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden wanting to defund the police. During the “Fox News Sunday” interview, Trump explained that Biden’s platform has been adopted from the radical left, including defunding the police, citing the radical “unity” charter drafted by Biden and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). “It’s gotten totally out of control and it’s really because they want to defund the police, and Biden wants to defund the police,” Trump told Wallace. Wallace interjected, “Sir, he does...

    President Trump, in a “Fox News Sunday” interview with Chris Wallace set to air Sunday, blamed surging violence across the country on “stupidly run” cities, while also offering support for facial coverings to stop the spread of coronavirus but saying he wouldn't issue a national mandate. During the exclusive interview at the White House on Friday, Wallace asked Trump to explain why murder rates were up in cities like Chicago and New York. “I explain it very simply by saying they’re Democrat-run cities, they are liberally run. They are stupidly run,” the president said.

(snip) Wallace said, “Liberal Democrats have been running cities in this country for decades.” Trump said, “Poorly.” Wallace said, “Why is it so bad right now?” Trump answered, “They run them poorly, it was always bad, but now it’s gotten totally out of control, and it’s really because they want to defund the police and Biden wants to defund the police.” Wallace interjected,...

    Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of the Times, was a guest on Harris Faulkner's Fox News Channel show yesterday. Discussing the Weiss resignation, Abramson began by sloughing off Weiss's resignation as a "molehill," dismissing her as a "junior-level opinion editor." Abramson then made two absurd assertions: "The idea that the New York Times is edited by a cabal of left-wing journalists is just not true." "I don’t think it’s true that moderate voices are being hushed at the New York Times. Most of the opinion columnists at the Times are centrists. They are center to liberal." Get the rest...

    Democratic challengers in many of the key Senate races that will determine which party controls the chamber next year have over the past three months outraised the Republican incumbents they’re hoping to unseat in November’s general election. “The green wave of fundraising that helped Democrats take back the House in 2018 is now a tsunami of cash in Senate races for Democrats that could clear the way for them to flip the Senate in November,” said Jessica Taylor, who closely tracks the Senate races for the Cook Report, a leading non-partisan political handicapper. Republicans enjoy a 53-47 majority in the...

    President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both set eye-popping fundraising records last month – but Biden’s records were larger. The former vice president’s campaign announced on Wednesday night that they, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and their joint fundraising committees hauled in a combined $141 million in June, which was by far the campaign’s best monthly figure to date. Biden’s campaign called it a “jaw-dropping sum of money”

    Some GOP operatives are wondering if the president could drop out of the presidential race if his poll numbers don't improve. A stretch of lackluster polling for President Trump has some Republican operatives nervous about the president’s reelection prospects in November – with some even floating the possibility for the first time that Trump could drop out if his poll numbers don’t rebound. “It’s too early, but if the polls continue to worsen, you can see a scenario where he drops out,” one GOP operative who asked to remain anonymous told Fox News. Trump’s poll numbers in recent weeks have...

    President Trump railed against former Vice President Joe Biden and “radical” Democrats Sunday morning over a recent push to weaken law enforcement in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Days after the death of Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died while in police custody after an officer kneeled on his neck, Black Lives Matter said they “call for a national defunding of police,” and notable Democratic voices have echoed the sentiment. “Sleepy Joe Biden and the Radical Left Democrats want to ‘DEFUND THE POLICE,’” Trump tweeted Sunday morning. “I want great and well paid LAW ENFORCEMENT.

    ‘Imagine if former President Bush, as Trump’s most recent Republican predecessor, backed a Democrat. Bush’s voice has the singular power to reach moderate Republicans and Republican-leaning independent voters, freeing them to walk away from the Party of Trump.’ That’s Fox News analyst Juan Williams musing in an op-ed for The Hill on Monday about what an endorsement from George W. Bush could mean for Joe Biden’s chances in the 2020 election.

    Paul Feig, the director and co-writer of the 2016 “Ghostbusters” reboot, noted in a recent interview about the film that he believes the “anti-Hillary movement” played a big role in the movie’s negative perception. The 57-year-old director’s announcement in 2015 that he would reboot the beloved comedy franchise with an all-female cast led by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones drew a slew of criticism from fans of the original movies. The film ultimately underperformed at the box office, only earning $229.1 million worldwide. Speaking in an interview on Jess Cagle’s SiriusXM show, Feig explained that he...
