    Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue said Sunday that President Donald Trump did not use the phrase "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week. "I'm telling you he did not use that word, George, and I'm telling you it's a gross misrepresentation," Perdue told moderator George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week." During an Oval Office meeting on immigration Thursday, Trump expressed frustration with people coming to the United States from "shithole countries," sources told CNN.

    U.S. Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) compared President Donald J. Trump’s animus towards the media to totalitarian dictator Joseph Stalin's propaganda on ABC News' ‘This Week’.While discussing a series of speeches the soon-to-be-retired Senator will be giving over the next few weeks, host George Stephanopoulos read aloud an excerpt from one.  STEPHANOPOULOS: We’ve gotten some excerpts of what you’re planning to say, taking on the president’s comments about calling the press the enemy of the people. And I just want to read a portion of what we’ve had.It’s a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses...

    ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s This Week by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave. Stephanopoulos Exploits Death of US Soldier to Take a...

    You can place the blame for the current epidemic of sexual harassment right at the feet of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It could be argued that it began with Ted Kennedy, who let Mary Jo Kopechne drown while he chilled out at a hotel after saving himself, but it was the Clinton's who raised  the politics of sexual harassment and personal destruction to an art form. As the accusers of Bill Clinton came forward, Bill Clinton's top aide Betsy Wright coined them term "bimbo eruptions" and she and she colleagues then set about to destroy the women who dared speak...

Reines didn't agree. "Ken Starr spent $70 million on a consensual blowjob. Senate voted to keep POTUS WJC. But not enough for you @SenGillibrand? Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons’ endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite. Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck," Reines fired back on Twitter.

    Those comments came during a discussion a New York Times reporter was having with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York for an upcoming podcast. Asked point-blank if she thought President Clinton should’ve resigned from office, the Times reported that Gillibrand “took a long pause” and conceded,“Yes, I think that is the appropriate response.” Gillibrand went on to characterize today’s culture as somehow less permissable of this behavior then it was twenty years ago when Clinton was in office, hinting that President Trump should face the same fate.  https://www.mrctv.org/videos/abc-ignores-gillibrand-saying-clinton-shouldve-resigned   “Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should...

    Full title: George Stephanopoulos asked Kellyanne Conway about the Trump Jr. meeting. She talked about ObamaCare, Benghazi, and Michigan. ... Stephanopoulos continued to press the question of why the Trump team's narratives varied, but Conway responded by turning to topics including ObamaCare, Benghazi, and campaigning in Michigan. "There's nothing. There's nonsense. It was a ridiculous meeting," she said. "It was nothing. People want to offer their services and have meetings all of the time, believe me. I know you know this. But let's look at the consequence: no follow-up. No results." ...
  • Vanity: Russian Conspiracy Theory, CrowdStrike, and the Atlantic Counsel

    04/04/2017 9:12:52 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 41 replies
    The key to all of this is the Atlantic Council. The vehemently anti-russian think tank that Dr. Farkas is a senior fellow. Most people think that the FBI analyzed the DNC servers and came to the conclusion based on their analysis that Russia hacked the DNC. That is not true. The DNC refused to let the FBI look at their servers. Instead the DNC hired a private company, Crowdstrike, to do an analysis of their servers. It was Crowdstrike that concluded that Russia hacked the DNC. They then turned over those findings to the FBI. If this sounds incredibly shady...

    File this one under A Liberal Discovers Media Bias . . . Back in 2012, George Stephanopoulos somehow was permitted to moderate a Republican primary debate, and proceeded to harangue frontrunner Mitt Romney on the arcane matter of the right of states to prohibit contraceptive sales, thus abetting the Dems' "GOP War on Women" narrative. Republicans were rightly outraged. Now, in an ironic twist, it's the turn of some liberals to doubt Stephanopoulos' ability to serve as an impartial moderatot . . . of a Dem debate. On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski repeatedly expressed skepticism at the notion of...

    Hillary Clinton says Donald Trump's strong standing in the Republican primary race can likely be boiled down to his time in the national spotlight. When asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday about Trump's status as the Republican front-runner, Clinton said Trump's appeal was rooted in his long stint as a reality-television star.

    In the wake of the CNBC debate debacle, Joe Scarborough went on an epic rant on liberal media bias on today's Morning Joe. He summed things up this way, in challenging the panel: "you can't do it and nobody here can do it: name the single Republican that has hosted a Sunday show, that has been an anchor of a news network for the big three networks over the past 50 years: you can not do it." Mark Halperin largely agreed, saying "there's huge liberal media bias." But Mike Barnicle actually claimed that having fair moderators would be a bad...

    Did Joe Scarborough just suggest that the suits at his own network are craven cowards who put bucks over ethics? On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough predicted that if Matt Lauer had pulled a Stephanopoulos, NBC would hesitate to punish him [just as ABC hasn't disciplined Steph], because Lauer's morning Today show "is where they make the money."

  • Mika Hits ABC's 'Lack of Judgment' In Hiring Stephanopoulos

    On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski criticized George Stephanopoulos for covering the story of the Clinton Foundation story without disclosing that he had donated to it. But Brzezinski's biggest blast was reserved for ABC, which had hired the hyper-partisan Clinton adviser in the first place. Brzezinski hit the "lack of judgment of the people who are hiring him to think that he can just erase [his close Clinton ties] from his brain." View the video here.

    As this campaign season draws to an end, doubtless many will comment on what was right and what went wrong for each party. Let me beat the crowd by stating whatever the outcomes of the Congressional and state races the notion of Republicans continuing to allow Democratic operatives posing as newsmen and women to act as moderators in candidate debates is one of the most inexplicably stupid blunders of all. And yet each election it is repeated. Let this be the last time. Here are some names and incidents that should be engraved forever on the RNC steps and in...

    Speaking with Laura Ingraham this afternoon, George Stephanopoulos addressed Republican Sen. Rand Paul‘s suggestion that the ABC host purposely aided the Obama White House in driving the “war on women” narrative of 2012. In an interview with Geraldo Rivera last week, Sen. Paul asserted that Stephanopoulos’ “obscure” question about contraception during a GOP debate might hint that the newsman colluded with the Obama campaign to generate the resultant “war on women” narrative.

    Last year NewsBusters repeatedly made the case that members of the press – in particular ABC’s George Stephanopoulos – aided and abetted President Obama’s claim that the Republicans were engaging in a so-called War on Women. In a radio interview with Geraldo Rivera Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said this might have been the case (video follows with transcript and commentary): GERALDO RIVERA: Reince Priebus, the RNC chair was on the Republican, top politician on the Republican side, just saying that if CNN and NBC don’t cancel their planned films about Hillary Clinton, that he’s not going to allow any...

    Ping-pong diplomacy worked with China, so why not b-ball diplomacy with North Korea? Mika Brzezinski is clearly not buying that line of logic. On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski confessed to being "angry" with George Stephanopoulos for having the extraterrestrial otherwise known as Dennis Rodman on This Week to discuss his recent trip to North Korea, which included meeting with its new leader, Kim Jong Un. Mika didn't spare her fellow MJ panelists, calling them "idiots" when they persisted in discussing Rodman's trip and TW appearance. View the video here.
