    Donald Trump welcomed Rupert Murdoch and his wife Jerry Hall for dinner at his luxurious golf course in northeast Scotland on Saturday, the final event of a two-day tour of his properties there. Murdoch, 80, arrived at around 5:15 with wife Jerry Hall, 59, a former model who was previously married to Rolling Stone rocker Mick Jagger. The pair rode up the road to the clubhouse in an SUV with Trump himself. The MacLeod House, a restored 15th Century mansion on the grounds of the Trump International Golf Links Scotland, was the site of the meal. After a visit to...

That is, until reality bites. Then our wishful thinking or willful ignorance dashes upon the hard rock of unforgiving reality. The crackup always smarts. Thus is the case with the 2016 presidential election. Theres Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. In other words, theres Column A and Column B. Thats the choice. Column C is fairyland. Come November, tens of millions of voters will flock to the polls to choose...

    At this point, whatever happens, the GOPs chances of winning this election is at best 25%, if Cruz is the nominee. If Trump is the nominee, that falls to 3% at best. The problem is; Trump wont win and he wont let himself lose. If he loses the nomination, I see two possibilities; 1) He immediately endorses his friend, Hillary Clinton. His promises are as genuine as a three dollar bill. 2)He waits until mid-October, when all the ballot papers are printed, and then hell endorse his friend, Hillary Clinton.

    In his role as the donor class's darling, Marco Rubio has enjoyed support from the Republicans' media arm, Fox News. Throughout the primary, Fox provided Rubio with friendly interviews and key bookings, including the first prime-time response to Barack Obama's Oval Office address on ISIS. Many of the network's top pundits, including Stephen Hayes and Charles Krauthammer, have been enthusiastic boosters. Bill Sammon, Fox's Washington managing editor, is the father of Rubio's communications director, Brooke Sammon. But this alliance now seems to be over. According to three Fox sources, Fox chief Roger Ailes has told people he's lost confidence in...

    As the war between Fox News and Donald Trump ratchets up, Roger Ailes is fighting off criticism from his senior executives over his handling of the crisis. According to one highly placed source, last night, Ailes sent out the now-famous statement mocking Trump as being scared to meet with the "Ayatollah" and "Putin" if he became president. "That was Roger 100 percent," the source explained. "A lot of people on the second floor" -- where top Fox executives work -- "didn't think it was a good idea." Fox executives are also troubled that Ailes's principal adviser right now is his...

    From Chris Spargo writing at The Daily Mail: The Fox News and Donald Trump feud is heating up now that the Republican front-runner has announced he will not be attending the network's debate Thursday night over the presence of anchor Megyn Kelly. And while the network appears to be publicly siding with Kelly, who is still set to moderate Thursday's debate, the network is also reportedly trying to privately plead with Trump the best way they know how - through the women in his life.

    Speaking on Good Morning America and Morning Joe this morning, Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski hinted that other candidates were thinking of dropping out of the upcoming Fox News debate after Trump decided to bail. He asserted that anchor Megyn Kelly was "obsessed" with his boss, which was one reason why Trump decided not to participate. "Megyn Kelly is totally obsessed with Mr. Trump," Lewandowski said on Good Morning America. "She's done multiple shows on why he shouldn't be even involved in the race on television. She's completely obsessed with him. It's impossible to have a fair and honest...

    [SNIP] UPDATE: Now more of the story is coming out. We can see what provoked Roger Ailes. In a more complete statement issued last night, Fox erred again in editorializing, "We're not sure how Iowans are going to feel about him walking away from them at the last minute...." Rather than stick to the facts, Fox then argued for journalistic integrity, a reasonable point, but more of concern to insiders than to the masses. It's one thing for Trump to say he'll pull out and Fox ratings will be hurt. It's quite another to carry a vendetta and threaten the...

    Donald Trump is slated to make an appearance on Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox News Wednesday night even as he plans to skip Thursday night's debate moderated by the cable network. Trump's spokeswoman confirmed to The Hill that the presidential contender would make an appearance on O'Reilly's show, a day before the debate. The businessman has claimed unfair treatment from the network and has gone after host Megyn Kelly, calling her biased. His White House campaign has said he will host a competing event Thursday night.

    MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday morning applauded Donald Trump's refusal to participate in the Thursday debate hosted by Fox News, comparing Trump to Ronald Reagan. "That’s Trump at his very best. He made a lot of great points there," Scarborough said after playing a clip of Trump's press conference discussing his decision to pull out of the debate. During the presser, Trump said it was childish for Fox News to send out a press release mocking Trump's complaints that Fox host Megyn Kelly treats him unfairly. The news organization released a statement joking that they "learned from...
