CNN’s Sean Duffy problem is only going to get worse

How do you solve a problem like Sean Duffy? The former Republican congressman, who was hired by CNN to blindly defend Donald Trump while the impeachment process unfolds, is creating problems for the network by constantly...

George Conway Ups His Game Against Trump While Kellyanne Tries To Save Her Own...

Donald Trump must have had another nightmare, or maybe he even wet the bed. Upon awakening, he grabbed for his phone, like Linus for his blanket and tweeted out into the ethernet, “Where’s the Whistleblower?” (Pssst…one’s in the closet and the rest are under the bed, Donny, and there are more coming…think about that while going to sleep tonight.) George Conway apparently interpreted the tweet as infantile as well, because his response was to patiently explain to the Infant in Chief how all of this works in the real world. The answer, @realDonaldTrump, is, it doesn’t matter. We know you’re not too bright, so we’ll make this simple for you. Let’s suppose you’re walking down Fifth Avenue, and you see a bunch of people running out of a bank. They’re yelling: https://t.co/XPdu9UUpfq — George Conway (@gtconway3d) October 26, 2019 They don’t talk to you. And they don’t need to. They have all the evidence they need. For the same reason, Congress doesn’t need to talk to the whistleblower. They have many other witnesses. They have the memo of your call. And you, Rudy, and Mulvaney have all confessed. — George Conway (@gtconway3d) October 26, 2019 Probably the greatest mystery in Washington D.C. is how Kellyanne and George Conway stay married, when Kellyanne spends her life spinning, lying and gaslighting for Donald Trump and George devotes a good portion of his to deflating Trump’s bubble. George Conway recently revised his Twitter profile, to reflect in no uncertain terms exactly where he stands with respect to his wife’s boss. “Lawyer. Human scum who believes real power is truth. Windmill cancer survivor. And “not part of whatever drug deal Sondland and Mulvaney are cooking up.” The Conways both demur when asked to go on record explaining their all-too-blatant differences of opinion, with respect to Trump, which have been public since June of 2017, when George Conway criticized Trump’s travel ban on Twitter. Since then, he has made it plain that he’s an adversary of Trump, which has only escalated speculation about the differences between George and Kellyanne. It’s even been opined that Kellyanne is the famed White House leaker of legend and lore, and/or the author of her husband’s Twitter account. And a few days ago, Kellyanne went off on a reporter for the conservative Washington Examiner, and that conversation shed some interesting light on how Kellyanne views her relationship with her husband. [If you’re not familiar with this particular fracas, the back story is that Kellyanne’s name was floated as a possible replacement for chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. A reporter for the Washington Examiner mentioned George Conway’s tweets in connection with the story, and Kellyanne took issue with that, to put it mildly.] Conway: Hey, Caitlin. Kellyanne Conway. So I just am wondering why in God’s earth you would need to mention anything about George Conway’s tweets in an article that talks about me as possibly being chief of staff. Other than it looks to me like there’s no original reporting here, you just read Twitter and other people’s stuff, which I guess is why you don’t pick up the phone when people call from the White House because if it’s not on Twitter or it’s not on cable TV, it’s not real. I’m just wondering why you would have, A — why […]

HA! Chris Wallace Says In Response To Trump Attack, ‘One Of Us Has Daddy...

Donald Trump just tweeted at Chris Wallace today. Maybe he’s hoping that Wallace will go the way of Shepard Smith. Somebody please explain to Chris Wallace of Fox, who will never be his father (and my friend), Mike Wallace, that the Phone Conversation I had with the President of Ukraine was a congenial & good one. It was only Schiff’s made up version of that conversation that was bad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019 Raw Story: It isn’t the first Time Trump has gone after the younger Wallace. In a 2015 debate where Trump attacked former Fox News host Megyn Kelly for “blood coming out of her wherever,” Trump also attacked Chris Wallace for not being as great as his father. “The great Mike Wallace was a friend of mine,” Trump said. “He was a tough cookie and he was great. And the son is only a tiny action of Mike, believe me.” If Trump’s comment ever stung him, Wallace is over it. “One of us has daddy issues, and it isn’t me,” he says. Trump does have Daddy issues. Right now, all he can talk about is how terrible Joe Biden and his son are. Trump claims to know all kinds of celebrities, because he’s such a hot shot himself. Does he not know that the well-adjusted sons of famous and successful fathers, the Michael Douglases and Rob Reiners of the world, are not comparing themselves to Dad, they’re being their own men? And because their fathers raised them to have confidence and forge their own path, they’re able to realize their own potential and not spend their lives enthralled to their fathers’ image and feeling inadequate — like Donald Trump? Trump’s neuroses and lack of self-awareness are getting so pronounced that even those of us who took a couple of psych classes in college can see his issues as clear as day. Pity he can’t. And just for the record, there’s no indication Mike Wallace was ever friends with Trump. He interviewed him once on “60 Minutes.” Mike Wallace interviewed thousands of people on that show, including an old landlord of mine who went to prison for Medicare fraud. Seriously. His name was Paul Zander. I guarantee you, Zander didn’t consider Mike Wallace a friend, au contraire. Wallace and his film crew showed up on the sidewalk outside Zander’s medical prosethetics shop in Westwood, while Zander, who was out on a huge bail bond, while awaiting adjudication of his case, stared out the shop window in disbelief. Things were bad enough when his two buddies from Iran, who managed to flee the country before the feds descended, left him holding the bag, I believe under the doctrine of joint and several liability, but don’t quote me. And then Mike Wallace showed up. It was not a good time. Walllace put people on the hot seat. Trump is actually lucky that Wallace deigned to waste a ten minute interview on him, he usually fried much bigger and more interesting fish. CBS News: “There are a lot of things to do,” Mr. Trump said. “You know, a fertile imagination and a fertile mind, Mike, it’s really amazing what can be thought of.” “Politics?” Wallace interjected. “No, not politics,” Mr. Trump said. “You said you could do a better […]

Bombshell: Shep Smith Out At Fox News, The Day After Barr Met With Murdoch...

Donald Trump has been saying for some time that the United States should launch it’s own cable TV network to compete with CNN and which would “tell the truth.” Last week Shepard Smith drew a reprimand for being critical of Tucker Carlson. Then, Thursday William Barr went to meet with Rupert Murdoch. Friday was Smith’s last day at Fox, and Smith happened to be one of the few voices at Fox that was willing to oppose Trump by broadcasting actual facts and not devoting himself to fawning admiration — which is apparently what is demanded and there is no room for dissent. Announcement from Fox News: Shepard Smith is stepping down from his role as chief news anchor. This afternoon's show was his last. Fissures between news and opinion at Fox News are for real. — ErikWemple (@ErikWemple) October 11, 2019 This is a breaking story, which will be updated, but this should make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. There is no way that this development can be viewed in a positive light. Trump demanded loyalty from Fox News, he bristled and screamed when he didn’t get it, and now it looks like William Barr is not only his attack dog, he’s also his PR man, and he convinced Rupert Murdoch to see things Trump’s way. That’s only speculation, but it’s a reasonable theory that fits the facts. Roger Ailes is down in Hell laughing right now. UPDATE: 2:05 p.m. PDT — As anybody who has witnessed terminations in corporate America knows, it is a sign of hostility and disgrace when an employee is walked out of the building by security. Such was the treatment that longtime Fox News anchor Shepard Smith received by the network on Friday. Sources directly familiar tell me many Fox News and Fox Business staffers were "shocked" when Shep Smith announced his departure on @foxnews, some were visibly upset. He was escorted out by security, per sources. Fox plans to have a set of rotating anchors host his time slot. https://t.co/FfW2QUNaoD — Jo Ling Kent (@jolingkent) October 11, 2019 Any illusions that this was a planned in advance and mutually agreed upon, amicable, split have totally been shattered — but you already knew that, right? Poor Shep Smith, he was adjudicated an Enemy of the People and summarily dealt with. Who’s next, Chris Wallace? UPDATE 2X October 12, 2019, 4:40 p.m. PDT: Friends, a Fox publicist sent me the following email this afternoon. I verified her identity and I verified that Jo Ling Kent, the NBC journalist who reported that Smith had been escorted from the building by security, had deleted the tweet and printed a retraction. This is legit. Hi Ursula- Ali from FOX News here- reaching out in regards to your police below. Jo Ling Kent went on to delete her tweet that included the report of Smith being escorted out of the building, given it was false. Can you please update your piece to note that? https://politizoom.com/2019/10/11/bombshell-shep-smith-out-at-fox-news-the-day-after-barr-met-with-murdoch-hello-state-television/ Also- Shepard released a statement denying that his departure was due to Murdoch’s meeting with Barr. See here. New statement from Shep Smith’s spokesman: “The decision to leave was Shep’s and his alone – he will be taking an extended period of time off to be with his family. Following […]
