Fox News Ainsley Earhardt Fires Back At Pelosi After Speaker Refers To AG Barr As A ‘Blob’

Ainsley Earhardt, co-host of Fox & Friends, called Nancy Pelosi out after the House Speaker described Attorney General William Barr as a “blob” and “henchman” for President Trump.

Following Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill Tuesday, a spectacle meant only to make Democrat lawmakers feel good about themselves by “reclaiming their time,” Pelosi attacked the Attorney General for allegedly doing the President’s bidding.

She was particularly distraught over his use of federal law enforcement to quell violence in cities like Portland and Chicago.

“He was like a blob,” she said, sputtering along in an MSNBC interview. “He was like a, just a henchman for the president of the United States, instead of the attorney general of the United States of America.”

Name-calling. The woman who is second in line to the presidency and her best retort is to call Barr a blob.

Double Standard

Earhardt was quick to call out the fact that there is quite the double standard in Pelosi’s disrespectful comments about Barr.

“Nancy Pelosi is saying that he is a henchman and a blob, and there’s a double standard there,” she accused. “What if someone called a woman a blob?”

The Fox & Friends host then turned it over to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for his thoughts on the House Speaker’s attack.

“It’s terrible,” he replied. “But this is the same individual who said that the President of the United States is an imposter back during impeachment.”

Jordan added, “I don’t take what she says about people in the administration very seriously.”

To that point, America doesn’t really take what she says seriously. Earhardt is right – imagine the uproar had a Republican called a female Democrat a ‘blob’ or any other schoolyard insult.

They’d be forced to apologize from the House floor.

What Barr Really Said

In Barr’s opening statement he spoke of “one standard of justice” and how he has “handled criminal matters that have come to me for a decision in this way.”

He was clear and concise about his independence from the administration.

“The President has not attempted to interfere in these decisions,” he stated. “On the contrary, he has told me from the start that he expects me to exercise my independent judgment to make whatever call I think is right.”

In other words, not a henchman by any means.

Pelosi went on to reiterate her disgusting claims that federal law enforcement officers are the equivalent of “stormtroopers.”

“Peaceful protest is who we are and what we do. And do some other people come along and try to disrupt? Yes,” she said. “But you don’t send in people acting like stormtroopers into the scene and evoking even more, even more unease and unrest.”

Imagine that line of thinking in dealing with other crimes. You don’t send police into a bank robbery and put the bank at risk. You don’t send police to a domestic violence situation and cause the assailant to become ‘uneasy.’

It’s clear Pelosi’s mind is ‘like a blob’ – a dark, shapeless and aimless mass of darkness.

Maxine Waters On Trump Using Federal Law Enforcement In Portland: ‘Trial Run’ For When He Refuses To Accept Election Loss

Rep. Maxine Waters dipped her toes into the unhinged conspiracy theorist pool, suggesting the federal police response to violence in Portland is a “trial run” for when President Trump refuses to accept his election loss.

Waters (D-CA) made the claim during an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid Wednesday night.

It’s not to quell violence in these Democrat-run cities, you see, federal law enforcement is there as a plant to be ready for action come November.

“This is what you see in country’s that have dictators,” she claimed. “In third-world countries with dictators, they have paramilitary that they can call up against the people anytime they want.”

No, Mad Max, what you see in third-world countries is what you’re seeing on the streets of leftist-controlled cities – chaos, with no regard to law and order.

And that’s when she added an extra layer to her tinfoil hat …

Untethered From Reality

Waters proceeded to engage in ridiculous speculation about President Trump not accepting the election results should he lose to Democrat Joe Biden.

You know, the same thing they claimed he would do in 2016. When it turned out it was Democrats who spent four years refusing to accept the election results. They act like we can’t remember what they said and did a mere four years ago.

“As a matter of fact, it has been suggested that this is a trial run for the president of the United States who may be organizing to not accept what happens when we have the election if he’s not elected,” she wildly asserted.

“Is he going to pull out his military? Is he going to engage us?” fretted Waters. “He has already alluded to there may be a civil war if he’s not re-elected. This is dangerous.”

To nobody’s surprise, Reid sat there nodding her head in agreement as Waters spewed the absurd claim.

The Suggestion

It isn’t that hard to find where the ‘suggestion’ came from.

MSNBC’s John Heilemann made similar allegations earlier this week, meaning a good portion of the network actually believes Trump would use the military and refuse to leave office if he loses the election.

“I don’t want to be overly alarmist about this,” Heilemann said. “But this is the time to be alarmist knowing where Donald Trump stands politically, understanding where we are headed in this election.”

“I think we are looking at potentially a trial run for … a genuine attempt to, through intimidation, and potentially through force, to try to steal this election.”

This is projection, pure and simple. It’s what a Democrat in the White House would be doing if they lost to Trump. You’ve already seen what they have done in trying to oust him – impeachment hoaxes, constant lying by the media, spying, planting fake news, insurance policies, and on and on.

Do you think for a moment that Antifa and other leftist rioters wouldn’t be burning the streets if they didn’t get their way? You’re seeing it right before your eyes!

Last month, Biden predicted the military would have to intervene should Trump lose to him in the 2020 election and refuse to leave office.

It’s not just MSNBC hacks and unhinged Auntie Maxine with these conspiracy theories. It’s gone mainstream to the man who could be sitting in the White House this time next year.

And that is scary.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono Flat-Out Calls Trump Supporters ‘White Supremacists’

Senator Mazie Hirono pulled no punches in an interview with MSNBC stating supporters of President Trump are “anti-immigrant” and “white supremacists.”

Hirono (D-HI) began the segment by claiming the President has been a failure in three aspects:

  • The pandemic – Caused by China with a response slowed down by the impeachment charade.
  • The economy – Caused by the pandemic which had previously been roaring along at historic rates.
  • Systemic racism – Something that only exists in bad individuals and is by no means systemic.

She blamed Trump’s “enablers” for covering up these so-called failures, before really laying into his supporters.

Trump Fans Are ‘White Supremacists’

If there was any question, every Democrat and some Republicans think this way about you because of your support for the President. Hirono just said it out loud.

“We should be dealing with the economic crisis,” Hirono said. “And we should be dealing with the racism that is in our country to which the president speaks to because he has a base of supporters who are very anti-immigrant and white supremacists.”

“That’s who, that’s the, a lot of his base and that’s who he speaks to so the divisiveness continues,” she stammered. “So, we should be focusing on things that we need to focus on.”

The MSNBC host, Chris Jansing, as you would expect, offered no pushback on the outlandish claim.

RELATED: Harmeet Dhillon Wants To Know Where The Outrage Was When Obama Commuted Sentence Of A Terrorist

Made the Claim Before

This isn’t exactly a new claim from Hirono.

In discussing harassment of Republican lawmakers incited by Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Hirono called it activism and justified it due to “white supremacy.”

“Well, this is what happens. They — because when you look at white supremacists and all of that, this is what is coming forth in our country,” alleged Hirono.

“There is a tremendous divisiveness in our country,” she continued. “But this is the kind of activism that occurs. And people make their own decisions.”

There’s divisiveness in our country due to Democrats, unable to debate policies and platforms intelligently, constantly stooping to the race card in order to placate their low-information voters.

Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Continue To Tank At MSNBC

When you think of ultraliberal media stars a lot of names come to mind. But one who has stood out for a while has been Rachel Maddow of MSNBC. However, it seems that even her hard left viewers are growing tired of her, as her ratings are headed to the media equivalent of the Challenger Deep.

Maddow called the month of May quits at the tail end of five Fox News programs in total viewership, including non-primetime shows such as “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier.” And remember, she’s tanking with her own type of viewers.  Her May numbers were even sadder with the key adult demo of 25-54. There she caught 455,000 viewers to end up tied for No. 7 in cable news, even behind a show at ratings bottom-feeder CNN.

Speaking of fake news, “Cuomo Prime Time” beat Maddow in the key demo in May. Even the non-by-the-sentient-watched “Anderson Cooper 360” almost beat Maddow among the vital viewer group last month.

Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson told Fox News, “Rachel Maddow’s success was a one-trick pony. That trick was Trump-Russia conspiracy theories on an Alex Jones level of crazy. After the Mueller report, Maddow’s decline was inevitable. She got a respite due to impeachment hysteria, but now that that too has passed, there’s no reason for anyone except the hardcore left to watch her. Her decline could be permanent unless some other political paranoid delusion draws people back to her.”

Media Research Center Vice President Dan Gainor also told Fox News, “I think this is a battle of extreme idiocy and that favors CNN. Maddow has two strikes against her — she tends to be wonky and she lost a lot of leftist support when she was massively wrong about Russia. Even the left has the standard of wanting their pundits not to make them look bad. And she did. CNN has become a parody of a news network with the unethical faux journalism of anchor Chris Cuomo repeatedly interviewing his brother, the disastrous New York governor. Lucky for CNN, their viewers aren’t tuning into Cuomo or Anderson Cooper for news. They can’t be. They are tuning in for spectacle. And that, CNN will happily supply.”

Piling on, media critic Jeff McCall comments, “Maddow’s credibility likely took a hit in the eyes of the less loyal viewers once the Russian collusion story dissipated. The strategy of focusing so much of her program around one issue looked good at the time and her ratings jumped, but sustaining that momentum was a challenge once the news agenda changed. She will need to find another enticing anti-Trump storyline to lure back the more casual viewers.”

This was inevitable. The rarely drooling members of the left who can still summon up the brain-hand coordination to push a button on a remote are leaving Maddow because she just is never right. Even they have standards for accuracy. They’re very low, but they’re there. And as she begins to slide into permanent orbit decay and burns up in the pundit atmosphere she will blame it on the president, as she always does. If only he had that much power.

Shifty Schiff: Coronavirus Deaths Fault Of Failure To Impeach Trump

Representative Adam Schiff put the blame for coronavirus deaths squarely on the fact that President Donald Trump was not impeached back in January.

Schiff: ‘Little Did We Know How Great The Casualties’ Of Impeachment Failure Would Be

Sparked off by a comment from MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, Schiff went on an insane diatribe linking the casualties of coronavirus to the failed impeachment.

“We can’t act even slightly surprised by this because you told us this was going to happen in your argument in the Senate impeachment trial,” O’Donnell put to Schiff.

“Well, we certainly told the senators that he was not going to change, and there was no way to constrain him. That he is who he is, and he would continue to operate the way he had, and indeed, that’s exactly what we’ve seen since,” Schiff replied. “The one thing we dramatically understated is when we asked the question, ‘If you found him guilty, do you really need to remove him given there is another election only nine months away, how much damage could he really do?'”

“We said a lot, but little did we know just how great the casualties would be. Some days we lose the equivalent of the number of people we lost on 9/11,” Schiff claimed, with clearly no self-reflection. “You know, I think that there is no way we could have foreseen just how tragic his malfeasance would be in his remaining months in the administration.”

Absolutely Unhinged!

The RNC called Schiff’s arguments “unhinged” in their tweet covering his appearance, and I am very much inclined to agree. It’s completely deranged to not only put the blame for deaths from the coronavirus on President Trump, but also in the impeachment itself. Ironically, you can make a far more coherent case that the impeachment debacle actually distracted the attention of the Democrats in Congress from the growing threat of the pandemic back in January!

As Fox News host Sean Hannity pointed out on his March 16th show, Democrats weren’t interested in the coronavirus at all. When the first person with coronavirus entered the country on January 21st, the Democrats were “in the throes of an all-consuming, what has been the culmination of a three-year quest to impeach and throw Donald Trump out of office.” On January 23rd, when China sealed off the Hubei province, House impeachment managers were starting their opening arguments. And on January 31st, when President Trump issued the travel ban to and from China and declared a national health emergency, Democrats, including Schiff, were busy trying to impeach him.

Try denying that Schiff!

Schiff: Lives Would Have Been Saved If Only Trump Had Been Impeached And Removed

Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) made an outlandish claim that many American lives would have been saved from the coronavirus pandemic if only President Trump had been impeached and removed from office.

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that his inability (along with other impeachment managers) to convince the Senate that Trump was guilty and should be removed “haunts” him.

“I don’t think we had any idea how much damage he would go on to do in the months ahead,” Schiff claimed. “There are 50,000 Americans now who are dead, in significant part because of his incompetence, because of his inability to think beyond himself and put the country first.”

“I don’t think we would have ever anticipated that his brand of narcissism and his brand of incompetence would be so fatal to the American people,” he asserted.

It Was Schiff’s Impeachment Charade That Cost Lives

There is a whole boatload of stupidity to unpack in those comments, not the least of which is that Schiff seems unaware – perhaps because he was focused on impeaching rather than governing – that the President had already taken significant steps to slow the spread of the virus.

While the resistance party was plotting their impeachment gambit, Trump was setting up a coronavirus task force, ordering more testing and ventilators, restricting travel from countries known to be battling the virus, and declaring a national emergency.

The first reported case of coronavirus in the United States came on January 21st. The impeachment charade ended in the Senate on February 5th.

Is Schiff really under the impression that Trump’s ouster and Vice President Mike Pence’s takeover of the presidency (he is Chair of the coronavirus task force) would have led to different results? Especially when it had already been in the country for two weeks at least, likely longer?

RELATED: Schiff Vows To ‘Dive Deep’ Into Trump Coronavirus Investigation

Schiff Lied, People Died

Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), has already debunked the claim that more should have been done by President Trump in the month of February.

“You keep calling February this lost month, it’s really not,” Crenshaw told HBO star Bill Maher previously. “It’s just an easy, cheap accusation because there’s no big bold moves taken like there was in January or like there was in March.”

Crenshaw noted that even as of March 3rd, there were still only 100 coronavirus cases in the United States and that Americans weren’t going to accept a lockdown at that point.

Which makes Schiff’s point moot.

Anybody with a working set of eyes and ears is aware that it was the impeachment hoax that took Congress’s focus off of the coronavirus.

It was Schiff and his Democrat colleagues who bogged down an entire nation with their little impeachment dreams while the coronavirus was beginning to flourish.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino responded to Schiff’s claims, spitting fire on Twitter:

Known liar, clown, fraud, oxygen thief, serial hoaxster, and all-around garbage-person, sleazy Adam Schiff is doing everything he can to make this awful situation worse. There aren’t many people walking this planet who’ve done more damage than this sleazeball.

Buckle up. He’s about to do much further damage.

Schiff vowed two weeks ago to conduct a thorough investigation into the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We are diving deeply into what does the intelligence community know, what resources we would bring there, and what do we need to do prospectively to better protect the country in the future,” he announced.

That means another investigation – we’ve already endured Russia, Ukraine, emoluments, etc. – to drag America down even further.

While the President will be working diligently to revive America from the economic devastation wrought by this pandemic, Democrats will be working feverishly to slow him down yet again.

Meaning they will have even more blood on their hands when victims of suicide due to the financial crisis, or domestic violence victims due to lockdown, suffer while Democrats play politics.

Adam Schiff Wants Every American To Have ‘Easy Access To Voting By Mail With A Postage Paid Ballot’

Democratic Congressman and presidential impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Sunday that his party must insist that “every American” have easy access to voting by mail.

Schiff said of President Trump, “I’m more worried he will try to disenfranchise millions of Americans then try to put off the election. He’s already talking down absentee voting, making false claims about the reliability of absentee voting even when he votes by absentee himself.”

‘We need to insist that every American in the fall if they choose to do so, has easy access to voting by mail with a postage-paid ballot’

“But he has openly admitted, and it is rather startling to hear him say out in the open, that he believes that’s more Americans vote, more would participate in our democracy, and he and other Republicans couldn’t get elected,” Schiff said.

“That may very well be true, but that is not a reason to disenfranchise people,” Schiff continued. “It’s a reason to change their platform. But I do think that like they tried in Wisconsin, the Republicans may try to force people to choose their vote or our health and we need to insist, and I think needs to be a very important point in terms of protecting the health care of our democracy, we need to insist that every American in the fall if they choose to do so, has easy access to voting by mail with a postage-paid ballot.”

 

“Because we can’t preserve the health of our country if we allow democracy to be destroyed,” Schiff finished.

Pelosi Pushes Mail-In Ballots Too

The Political Insider reported Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that a “chunk of money” will be designated in the next COVID-19 stimulus bill that will allow Americans to vote by mail.

 

RELATED: Pelosi Claims Next Stimulus Will Allow ‘American People To Vote By Mail’

Pelosi said, “They have also told us 24/7 the Russians are still at work trying to undermine our election. That is why we have to have an important chunk of money in this next bill that will enable us to protect the integrity of our elections, as well as enable the American people to vote by mail, especially at this time of a health danger in going to the polls.”

Voting by mail has become a Democratic theme. Would you trust this kind of system to determine the next President of the United States?

Do you trust Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and their party in pushing this so strenuously?

We don’t either.

Joe Scarborough Says Everyone Except Trump ‘Saw This Coming In Early January,’ But ‘Morning Joe’ Didn’t Mention It Until The 24th

On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that everyone but President Donald Trump had seen the coronavirus pandemic coming at the beginning of the year.

‘Everybody saw this coming, everybody saw this coming in early January’ – Even Though Joe Scarborough Didn’t?

“Everybody saw this coming, everybody saw this coming in early January,” Scarborough claimed on his program “Morning Joe.”

RELATED: New York Times Demands More Abortion Access During Coronavirus Pandemic

But there’s a big problem with his statement –  even Scarborough wasn’t talking about coronavirus in early January.

Trump 2020 Communications Director Matt Wolking tweeted, “Brazen lie from @JoeNBC. @Morning_Joe did not mention the coronavirus until Jan 24, when a guest said ‘we don’t need to be overly concerned yet in the U.S.’ and ‘Americans [should] take this as a wake up call for seasonal flu.’ Joe himself didn’t mention coronavirus until Feb 7.”

Coronavirus Wasn’t Even Mentioned on ‘Morning Joe’ Until January 24

Coronavirus was not mentioned on “Morning Joe” until January 24, when cohost Mika Brzezinski read a news report about China and the 26th death occurring in Wuhan.

There were just a few minutes of COVID-19 coverage that day, with most reporting and political conversations focusing almost entirely on President Trump’s impeachment trial.

Just ten days before this early report, the Chinese government along with the World Health Organization was still saying that the coronavirus was not transmissible from person to person.

Obviously we have since learned this isn’t true. We have also all learned together, whether Scarborough wants to admit it or not, pretending this was well known back in January.

Left-Leaning Journalist Glenn Greenwald Calls Joe Out

The Intercept journalist Glenn Greenwald took Joe to task, tweeting, “Look what a pathological liar @JoeNBC is. Today he said about the coronavirus pandemic in the US: “Everybody saw this coming in early January.” Number of @JoeNBC tweets in January by topic: Impeachment – 29 Election – 11 Sports – 7 Coronavirus – 0″

RELATED: CNN’s Chris Cuomo Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Greenwald is right.

But Joe Scarborough’s purpose here isn’t to tell the truth, but to hurt the President. In that effort, any lie will do.

Maxine Waters Says Trump Is An ‘Incompetent Idiot’ Who Must ‘Pray for Forgiveness’

On Monday, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters went on a social media rant against President Donald Trump over his handling of the coronavirus crisis, calling him an “incompetent idiot” who needs to “pray for forgiveness.”

‘Your ignorance & incompetence are appalling’

“Trump, stop congratulating yourself! You’re a failure & you’ve mishandled this #COVID19 disaster! You’re not knowledgeable & you don’t know more than experts & generals,” Waters wrote on Twitter. “Your ignorance & incompetence are appalling & you continue to demonstrate that every time you open your mouth!”

She didn’t stop there.

“Trump, you incompetent idiot!,” she tweeted. “You sent 18 tons of PPE to China early but ignored warnings & called COVID19 concerns a hoax. You’ve endangered doctors, nurses, aids, [sic] orderlies, & janitors – all risking their lives to save ours. Pray 4 forgiveness for the harm that you’re causing!”

Waters’ Rampage Against Trump Is Nothing New

Waters had accused President Trump on Sunday of ignoring the pandemic early on.

“As you know, we had an office of pandemic affairs basically in the office of the president that was shut down, closed down, not funded by the president of the United States,” Waters told MSNBC host Joy Reid. “That’s the kind of office that does the planning, that anticipates, that makes sure that supplies and everything that’s needed can be readily available when you have this kind of disaster. And so even though we didn’t have that kind of planning in addition to that, the early notifications I’m told were ignored.”

Waters Wants Trump to Address Crisis But Also… Shut His Mouth About It?!?

Strangely, while Waters accused Trump of ignoring the crisis in its early stages, she also believes he should “shut his mouth” about it.

RELATED: Maxine Waters Accuses Trump Of Lying, Ignoring Early Warnings On Coronavirus

“It’s been said over and over again that you cannot trust this president,” Waters told Reid. “Not only is he a liar, he does not believe in anything scientific.”

“So the President of the United States cannot be relied upon,” she added. “Someone said he needs to be quiet, he needs to shut his mouth.”

Despite Waters’ random and often nonsensical grumblings, the Trump administration continues to make strides in implementing testing nationwide, mask production and financial and other relief crucial to Americans during this crisis.

Maxine Waters Accuses Trump Of Lying, Ignoring Early Warnings On Coronavirus

Rep. Maxine Waters accused President Trump of ignoring early coronavirus warnings and suggested he’s “gotten away with a lot of lying.”

The fact that the first part of that sentence is a complete lie is an irony that apparently escapes the California Democrat.

“The early notifications I’m told were ignored,” Waters said during a weekend interview with MSNBC.

Accuses Trump of Lying

Waters then accused the President of lying regarding his implementation of the Defense Production Act.

“I know that the president has gotten away with a lot of lying about what is going to happen with the Defense Act, and he said that he was going to, first of all, invoke it. He did not,” she claimed.

“He waited until the heat was on him, and then he lied on some of the big businesses that he said he had an agreement with that he really didn’t have.”

These are the same people who couldn’t stomach the thought of the President invoking various war powers acts for the last three years, now demanding he does just that.

Trump invoked the Defense Production Act on Friday, compelling General Motors to start making ventilators.

Shut His Mouth

Waters’ comments are in line with those she made weeks ago when she called the President of the United States a “liar” and suggested he should shut his mouth on the coronavirus crisis.

“It’s been said over and over again that you cannot trust this president. Not only is he a liar, he does not believe in anything scientific,” she claimed without evidence. “So the President of the United States cannot be relied upon. Someone said he needs to be quiet, he needs to shut his mouth.”

First, she says he needs to keep his mouth shut, then complains that he hasn’t said or done enough.

RELATED: Lack Of N95 Respirator Masks Found To Be Fault Of Obama Administration

Maxine Is Lying

It’s never a good idea to accuse somebody of lying while simultaneously doing the same thing.

As we’ve noted, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has repeatedly credited President Trump with saving countless lives through swift action at the very beginning.

Travel restrictions implemented by the administration in late January helped limit the spread of the virus.

What were Waters and her fellow Democrats focused on at that time? The impeachment sham.

Aside from that, she also blamed President Trump for a lack of respirators.

The reality, however, is that it was the Obama-Biden administration that failed to replenish those supplies.

In 2009, the H1N1 swine flu pandemic triggered a massive deployment of respirators and masks.

But the Obama administration never set about replenishing the stockpile, despite warnings from multiple experts and a 2010 report funded by the federal government recommending the repository of masks be restocked for a future pandemic.

“In hindsight, it appears to be shortsighted,” said the senior director of public health preparedness for the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials.

Waters is the very definition of short-sighted.
