Despicable: Michelle Wolf Performs Disgusting Stand-Up Routine at White House Correspondent’s Dinner (VIDEO)
THE MSM HAS FUNNY GONE TOO FAR EVEN FOR THE MSM …
Last night at the White House Correspondent’s dinner comedian Michelle Wolf did the impossible, made many in the MSM so uncomfortable and jumped the shark so far that even they are calling it too have gone way far and outrageous. Not only was this not funny, it was vile, mean and downright nasty. But this is what the LEFT has become these days. Who knew it was ok to make fun of women’s appearances? I thought the LEFT said that was off limits. Except when it comes to their double standard.
Even the liberal media think it crossed a line. However, that ddidn’t stop many inattendance from laughing.
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner ended with a barrage of vulgar anti-Trump jokes by comedian Michelle Wolf, who attacked the appearance of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, who was sitting with her at the head table.
What they’re saying: White House officials in the audience thought Wolf’s patter went too far, and thought the attacks on Sanders and Kellyanne Conway were too personal.
Be smart: That creates a new hurdle for the White House Correspondents’ Association to lure President Trump, who has snubbed the dinner the last two years.
ABC’s Jon Karl, a WHCA board member, said on “Good Morning America”: “I think the comedian crossed the line and this went from poking fun to being mean-spirited.”
Drudge’s banner headline: “SMUT STAND-UP SHOCKS DC!”
Wolf was panned by journo-twitter:
CNN’s Jeff Zeleny: “It was an embarrassment in the room and surely to the audience at home.”
N.Y. Times’ Maggie Haberman: “That @PressSec sat and absorbed intense criticism of her physical appearance, her job performance, and so forth, instead of walking out, on national television, was impressive.”N.Y. Times’ Peter Baker: “I would vote to leave the comedy acts to comedy shows and stick to journalism at journalism dinners.”
Bret Baier Interview witn Former FBI Director James Comey on Clinton Probe, Russia investigation … Baier Exposes Comey For the Liar & Leaker He Is (VIDEO)
Bret Baier of FOX News exposes Comey for the lying weasel he truly is …
The more James Comey talks. the less credible he sounds. What becomes obvious is that there was a total double standard when it came to the Trump and Hillary Clinton investigations. It is chilling that he can’t see it. Comey doen’t think he leaked , does sneaky things or does weasily things. Guilty on all counts.
Three Big Takeaways from Bret Baier’s Thorough Grilling of James Comey:
(1.) “What do you mean?” asks an incredulous Baier when Comey says he can’t say for sure that the DNC and Clinton campaign funded the salacious dossier. Comey clarifies that he’s only heard media reports to that effect, but can’t be certain they’re true. How is that possible? First of all, the provenance of that file, and who paid for it, has been an established fact for months. Comey was in an unique position to know basically everything about the dossier, upon which he at least partially relied (his answer on this point struck me as slippery and conflicts with other information) to secure surveillance on a former Trump campaign associate. He claims he knew it was furnished by people opposed to Donald Trump, but never knew their specific identities. Really? Either that’s false or he was strangely and perhaps deliberately under-informed about key details behind a crucial oppo-research file that he exploited to achieve important investigative ends. As for his assertion that Steele’s anti-Trump work was originally paid for by Republicans, this is a Democratic talking point that has long been debunked, as Baier notes. Conservative figures did employ Fusion GPS for a time to gather research on Trump, but they did not fund Steele or his dossier. As Byron York says, “given its importance in Trump-Russia probe and his own relationship with the president, James Comey’s ignorance of some basic facts about the dossier is stunning.”
(2.) On the Clinton email scandal probe, Comey defends his actions over the course of that process — persuasively at times, and less so at others. His explanation of his judgments about Clinton’s criminal intent wasn’t terribly compelling to me. Baier plays a montage of Comey confirming multiple lies Clinton told about her improper and national security-compromising email scheme, essentially asking how intentional deceit about arguably illegal conduct doesn’t signal intent (Trey Gowdy made the same point). Comey responds that Clinton lying to the media and the American people isn’t the same as lying to the FBI. That’s true as a legal matter, but lying to the FBI wasn’t the core potential crime under scrutiny; gross negligence in handling classified materials was. Was Clinton merely sloppy (or ‘really sloppy,’ as Comey puts it in the interview), or did she have an ulterior motive for her reckless set-up, of which she was well aware and calculating? Her repeated public lies about her actions suggest the latter. That ought to be the relevant standard on divining intent within that context, in my view. Plus, “sloppiness” does not explain the lengths to which she went to bypass the rules and accountability, nor does it cover the knowing falsehoods and evidence destruction she engaged in when caught.
(3) In my earlier Comey-related post, I mentioned the theory that the decision to brief President-elect Trump only about the most prurient aspect of the dossier (regarding Russian prostitutes) was a set-up to offer a “news hook” to media outlets eager to run with the story. Baier put this theory to Comey, who said he didn’t leak about that briefing to anyone, adding that former Obama intelligence official James Clapper didn’t either, to his knowledge. The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway pieced together and floated this idea a week ago:
Bret Baier on key takeaways from his James Comey interview
JUST LIKE A SOCIALIST … PROPOSES IGNORANT SOCIALIST JOBS PROGRAM WHEN 14 STATES HAVE RECORDED RECORD ALL-TIME LOW UNEMPLOYMENT RATES …
As reported at The Hill, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of The People’s Republic of Vermont has announced a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one.” UNREAL, just how would we pay for this socialist program? NOW? Jobs under the Trump administration are being created hand over fist. Capitalism seems to be working just fine. Fourteen states have recorded record low unemployment in the past year which begs the question, why would individuals need the government for a job, except to be kept dependent? If Americans want to work, they just need apply. But what else would one expect from a socialist but making individuals dependent upon government.
The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American.
Sanders’s office has yet to release the details of the plan’s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
The Vermont senator joins two other possible 2020 contenders, Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who have also expressed support for similar proposals in recent weeks.
“The goal is to eliminate working poverty and involuntary unemployment altogether,” Darrick Hamilton, an economist at The New School, told the Post.
Maybe Bernie and his socialist friends might want to take a look at the failed Finland experiment … Finland’s basic income trial falls flat. This is what socialism looks like, failure.
The Finnish government has decided not to expand a limited trial in paying people a basic income, which has drawn much international interest.
Currently 2,000 unemployed Finns are receiving a flat monthly payment of €560 (£490; $685) as basic income.
“The eagerness of the government is evaporating. They rejected extra funding [for it],” said Olli Kangas, one of the experiment’s designers.
Some see basic income as a way to get unemployed people into temporary jobs.
The argument is that, if paid universally, basic income would provide a guaranteed safety net. That would help to address insecurities associated with the “gig” economy, where workers do not have staff contracts.
Supporters say basic income would boost mobility in the labour market as people would still have an income between jobs.
Finland’s two-year pilot scheme started in January 2017, making it the first European country to test an unconditional basic income. The 2,000 participants – all unemployed – were chosen randomly.
But it will not be extended after this year, as the government is now examining other schemes for reforming the Finnish social security system.
Federal Agents Raided the Office of President Donald Trump’s Personal Attorney Michael Cohen … President Donald Trump declared attorney-client privilege “dead”
WHAT PRESIDENT HAS EVER BEEN TREATED THIS WAY? WAS HILLARY CLINTON TREATED IN THIS SAME MANNER?
Federal agents raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen on Monday, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels. It is now obvious that special counsel Mueller is going to anything and everything possible to get this president. Cannons of law and ethics be damned. To the LEFT I would ask, how would you have reacted had Hillary Clinton been treated in this manner? This situation is out of control and this partisan witch hunt does need to end. It would be wrong no matter what party the President was from. Where is the ACLU?
Federal agents on Monday raided the office of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, seizing records on topics including a $130,000 payment made to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
A furious Trump, who in the last month has escalated his attacks on Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, said from the White House that it was a “disgrace” that the FBI “broke into” his lawyer’s office. He called Mueller’s investigation “an attack on our country,” prompting new speculation that he might seek the removal of the Justice Department’s special counsel.
The raid was overseen by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan and was based in part on a referral from Mueller, said Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan.
“The decision by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York to conduct their investigation using search warrants is completely inappropriate and unnecessary,” Ryan said in a statement. “It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his clients.”
Authorities working with Mueller chose a similar tactic last summer when they raided the home of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was subsequently indicted.
In this case, Mueller opted to refer the matter to federal prosecutors in Manhattan. Besides Cohen’s office, agents also searched a hotel room where he’s been staying while his home is under renovation.
And after a briefing from Senior Military Leadership on Monday night, Trump took a number of questions from reporters, and started by blasting the raid on his lawyer as a “witch hunt.”
“It’s a disgrace,” Trump said. “It’s frankly a real disgrace. It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
The president also responded to a question about whether he would fire Mueller, charged with investigating his campaign’s ties to Russia.
Trump said: “I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. We’ll see what happens, but I think it’s really a sad situation when you look at what happens. And many people have said you should fire him. Again, they found nothing. And in finding nothing, that’s a big statement. If you know the person who’s in charge of the investigation, you know all about that––Deputy Rosenstein, Rod Rosenstein, he wrote the letter, very critical, of Comey…”
