Jeffrey Toobin Calls Judge’s Ruling ‘Another Very Important Win’ For House Dems

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reacted to a judge’s ruling Wednesday in favor of House Democrats seeking financial information from banks that worked with President Trump, calling it a “win” for Democrats. “Well, it’s another very  important win, because the legal  issue, fundamentally, is the same  as the one (Monday) regarding  the accounting firm that did the  President’s taxes,” Toobin told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “The President’s lawyers have  argued in both courts that this  is ...

Carson’s ‘Oreo’ Wisecrack Got Some Laughs, But Katie Porter Is Having None Of It

Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) isn’t amused. After House and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson got some laughs for confusing a housing foreclosure term with America’s favorite sandwich cookie, Porter said on “Morning Joe” Wednesday that the exchange demonstrates Carson isn’t up for the job. “I thought you did a great job trying to get answers yesterday,” MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski told Porter. “You had questions about the numbers of foreclosures and the numbers of people who...

Ben Carson Defends ‘Oreo’ Gaffe: I Just Couldn’t Hear Very Well!

Come again? Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson chalked up his infamous Oreo gaffe at a hearing on Tuesday to not being able to hear very well. “It was, first of all, it was  three-and-a-half hours of testimony,” Carson said on Fox Business Network Wednesday morning. “ So you can see that some of the  networks are only interested in  those kinds of sound bites that  they can use to ridicule.  You know the fact of the matter  is, I was having difficulty  hearing her.” ...

No, thanks. That was the collective response on Monday from several New Yorkers who couldn’t be bothered to talk to “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocey.

“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was quite impressed with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s performance in his Fox News town hall Sunday night, declaring that “I’ve seen the future of the Democratic Party and it’s Mayor Pete.” He softened the dramatic flourish: “It may not be in 2020, perhaps it’s in 2024 and beyond, but this guy is going to play an important role in the mainstreaming of the Democratic Party for many years to come.” Scarborough: “I’ve seen the future of the Democratic ...

Trump Claims ‘Picture File’ Shows Comey And Mueller Are Best Buds

While complaining about the Russia probe, President Donald Trump on Thursday claimed the special counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI director James Comey are “best friends.” His citation?

Pictures of Mueller and Comey certainly exist, but that’s hardly surprising given that Mueller was Comey’s predecessor...
