  • Maher to Democrats: ‘Let’s Not Eat Our Own’ in 2020
    by Ian Hanchett on February 16, 2019 at 4:46 am

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher urged Democrats to not eat their own in 2020 and defended Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and former Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) from criticisms they have received. Maher began by saying, “Let’s not eat our own, the way we nitpicked Hillary to death over her emails and other bullshit.” He continued, “Kamala Harris has already had to play defense because it’s come out that when she was a prosecutor, she prosecuted people. Not very progressive. She should have found a way to apply more forgiveness, and the fact that she didn’t is unforgivable. Elizabeth Warren claimed to be Native American. So what? Trump claimed to be human. If you think this stupid, blown-out-of-proportion Indian controversy makes her inauthentic, you’re the phony. She is the champion of consumer rights in the age of income inequality. When it comes to Elizabeth Warren, I have no reservations. Bernie Sanders? We used to like him, but he didn’t personally chaperone everyone on his campaign, so he’s a sex monster once removed. A candidate has to have tough standards for their staff, but not […]

  • Nadler: Trump Saying He ‘Didn’t Need to’ Declare Emergency ‘A Body Blow to His Case’
    by Ian Hanchett on February 16, 2019 at 2:59 am

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said that President Trump’s statement that he “didn’t need to” declare a national emergency is “a body blow to his case.” Host Chris Cuomo asked, “So, do you believe that those words will weigh heavy in any legal reckoning of the move?” Nadler answered, “They certainly will. Because the lawsuit will say that the — that there is no real emergency. And he’ll say there’s a real emergency. And here, he — the defense will be that the president decides whether there’s an emergency, the court can’t look behind that. And here the president’s saying there’s no real emergency. That’s a body blow to his case.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett […]
