Jeanine Pirro to Mitt Romney: ‘How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate?’

Judge Jeanine Pirro minced no words Saturday in slamming Sen. Mitt Romney for being the sole Republican voting to convict President Trump during last week’s Senate impeachment trial.

Pirro claimed that Romney — the 2012 Republican presidential nominee from Utah, who lost to Barack Obama that year — voted the way he did out of jealousy of Trump, who was able to win the White House for the GOP four years later.

“Permit me to introduce you to a non-leader,” Pirro said on “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “The first United States senator in American history to vote to convict the president of his own party — Mitt Romney, the sole and only Republican to vote to convict President Trump.

ROMNEY ANNOUNCES HE WILL VOTE TO CONVICT TRUMP IN IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

“How dare he!” she added. “How could he? And why would he?”

Pirro also criticized Romney and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for invoking their faith while criticizing the president.

“Do you ever wonder why people never mention God or religion — only bring it up when they get caught doing something or when they need an excuse for something they did?” Pirro asked. “What a bunch of phonies.”

“Do you ever wonder why people never mention God or religion — only bring it up when they get caught doing something or when they need an excuse for something they did? What a bunch of phonies.”

— Judge Jeanine Pirro

Pirro pulled no punches, calling Romney an “embarrassment.”

“Your jealousy of this man [Trump] is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has,” Pirro said. “Because guys like you fold like wusses and you don’t have any selflessness or the ability to think about others, as Donald Trump has thought about making America first.”

The host called on Romney to resign from office and ripped his attempt to win over the “Trump-hating left.”

“How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate?” Pirro said. “The people in Utah are furious with you, and your dream of endearing yourself to the Trump-hating left is a joke.”

Driver in Florida plows van into GOP voter registration tent, nearly hitting 6 volunteers: reports

Westlake Legal Group Voter-registration-Latino Driver in Florida plows van into GOP voter registration tent, nearly hitting 6 volunteers: reports fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/crime fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox news fnc/us fnc Dom Calicchio article 2e9e6767-8931-56a5-bd6d-a301d3135990

Authorities in Florida were searching Saturday night for a driver who they claim drove his van into a Republican Party voter registration tent in a shopping center parking lot, just missing six volunteers working there.

The suspect, described as a white man in his 20s, then got out of his vehicle and recorded video of the smashed tent, and flashed a middle finger to the startled voter-registration volunteers before driving off, FOX 30 of Jacksonville reported.

Photos posted by the Republican Party of Duval County showed Trump-Pence placards and bumper stickers strewn around the parking lot, along with the toppled tent. Another photo showed an older model brown-and-tan van driving away from the scene.

NAVY VETERAN’S ‘TRUMP 2020’ FLAG STOLEN FROM HIS FLORIDA HOME: ‘I FELT VIOLATED’

Volunteer Mark Alfieri gave FOX 30 his account of what happened.

“Kind of out of the blue, a man approached us in a van, was waving at us, kind of a friendly demeanor, thought he was coming up to talk to us. Instead he accelerated his vehicle and plowed right into our tent, our tables,” Alfieri told the station.

“After he ran over everything, he backed up, took out a cell phone, kind of recorded the damage, made some obscene gestures at us and then proceeded to leave the complex.”

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry called the incident “outrageous.”

“The hate is toxic and dangerous,” the mayor wrote on Twitter. “Thankfully no one was injured but certainly they are shaken after being targeted because they were registering voters.”

“The hate is toxic and dangerous. Thankfully no one was injured but certainly they are shaken after being targeted because they were registering voters.”

— Mayor Lenny Curry, Jacksonville, Fla.

Florida’s two U.S. senators — Marco Rubio and Rick Scott — also commented.

“Thanking God that no one was injured in today’s politically motivated attack against @DuvalGOP volunteers today,” Rubio wrote.

“This appears to be a politically-motivated attack on hard-working volunteers in Duval County,” Scott added. “Thankful that no one was hurt. @DuvalGOP will not be silenced or intimidated.”

Jacksonville authorities said the driver intentionally tried to strike the tent with his vehicle, the Florida Times-Union reported.

“We are investigating this as an aggravated assault,” Lt. Larry Gayle of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office told the newspaper. “Several people were in the area and could have been seriously hurt.”

The suspect could also face a charge of “interruption of the political process,” Gayle added.

Duval County GOP Chairman Dean Black said no one was injured but the voter-registration volunteers were “shaken up” by the incident.

“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” Black told First Coast News. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our constitutional rights.”

President Trump tweeted about the incident Saturday evening, after GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel retweeted a post by the Duval County GOP.

“Law Enforcement has been notified,” Trump wrote. “Be careful tough guys who you play with!”

Authorities asked that anyone with information about the incident contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or JSOCrimeTips@jaxsheriff.org.

AOC mixes up two ‘very different’ economists in Instagram post about 4-day workweek

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Boston University, had to correct herself Saturday evening after mixing up two “very different” economists during a lengthy Instagram discussion.

“UGGGH TYPO,” the freshman congresswoman wrote after confusing John Maynard Keynes, an early 20th-century British economist who theorized that government spending was linked to economic growth, with Milton Friedman, a free-market American economist and 1976 Nobel Prize winner.

Ocasio-Cortez mistakenly combined their names into “Milton Keynes.”

“I was just reading today about how in 1930, famed economist Milton Keynes predicted that by 2030 GDP and technology would have advanced so much that it would allow everyday people to work as little as FIFTEEN HOURS a week and provide for their families,” Ocasio-Cortez said while discussing the benefits of a four-day workweek with her Instagram followers.

“It’s John Maynard Keynes,” she clarified in a later Instagram story. “Mixed his name with Milton Friedman — a (very) different economist.”

Buttigieg, Sanders supporters trade jeers — and cheers — 3 days before New Hampshire primary

MANCHESTER, N.H. – The friction between supporters of Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg played out Saturday night as those two candidates — plus other White House hopefuls — spoke at a major New Hampshire Democratic Party event just three days ahead of the first primary on the 2020 election calendar.

Both Sanders and Buttigieg claimed victory following Monday’s problematic Iowa caucuses. So as Buttigieg drew closer to Sanders in the latest New Hampshire polls, Sanders has turned up the volume in recent days over Buttigieg’s acceptance of big-bucks contributions from wealthy donors.

BUTTIGIEG RISING: CANDIDATE HOPES TO GO TWO FOR TWO

Sanders – a self-described democratic socialist U.S. senator from Vermont who’s fueling his massive campaign cash haul with small-dollar grass roots donations – had targeted Buttigieg — a former mayor of South Bend, Ind. — at Friday night’s Democratic presidential nomination debate in Manchester.

“Unlike some of the folks up here,” Sanders said, “I don’t have 40 billionaires, Pete, contributing to my campaign, coming from the pharmaceutical [industry], Wall Street and all the big-money interests.”

On Saturday night, as Buttigieg spoke at the Shaheen-McIntyre 100 Club Dinner, Sanders supporters in the crowd inside the Southern New Hampshire University Arena showered the candidate with jeers of “Wall Street Pete!”

Buttigieg supporters – sitting on the opposite side of the arena – countered with cheers of “We need Pete!”

Buttigieg, during his speech, took aim at Sanders – repeating a line that he first started using on the campaign trail in Iowa a week ago as he highlighted the tough task ahead of trying to defeat President Trump in November’s general election.

“We cannot risk dividing Americans’ future further, saying that you must either be for a revolution or you must be for the status quo,” Buttigieg said. “Let’s make room for everybody in this movement.”

Sanders has continuously calls his bid for the White House a “political revolution.”

Later in the evening, when Sanders claimed victory in Iowa during his address, Buttigieg supporters loudly chanted “Pete Buttigieg!”

Longtime New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley called the back and forth between the Sanders and Buttigieg supporters “healthy energy.”

Buckley told Fox News he’s not concerned about continued divisions in the party after a nominee is ultimately chosen, saying the candidates “are fully committed to making sure we’re a united party.”

BIDEN ZINGS BUTTIGIEG – SAYING ‘THIS GUY’S NOT A BARACK OBAMA’

Buttigieg, in his speech, also took aim at former Vice President Joe Biden. The two candidates have been trading barbs in recent days – with the 77-year-old Biden pointing to the 38-year-old Buttigieg’s relative lack of experience and Buttigieg spotlighting the potential pitfalls of returning to the politics of old.

Biden’s campaign went up earlier Saturday with a new digital ad suggesting that Buttigieg doesn’t have enough experience to be president.

The spot uses a clip of then-President Obama calling Biden “the best vice president America’s ever had,” before going on to compare crucial successes of the Obama administration with mundane mayoral actions by Buttigieg, such as installing “decorative lights under bridges.”

Buttigieg, speaking to the crowd hours later, tried to make his case.

“Some are asking what business does the mayor of South Bend have seeking the highest office of the land?” he said.

“Americans in small rural towns, in industrial communities — and yes, in pockets of our country’s biggest cities — are tired of being reduced to a punchline by Washington politicians and ready for somebody to take their voice to the American capital.”

Rudy Giuliani predicts Trump will be ‘totally vindicated’ by ‘smoking gun’ in Hunter Biden probe: ‘We’ve got the documents’

Westlake Legal Group image Rudy Giuliani predicts Trump will be 'totally vindicated' by 'smoking gun' in Hunter Biden probe: 'We've got the documents' Victor Garcia fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/shows/watters-world fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 21afb4a9-51d2-5983-9777-3f61abf4a21e

Three witnesses are ready to “name names” in an investigation into Hunter Biden and alleged Ukraine corruption, Rudy Giuliani claimed Saturday night.

President Trump‘s personal lawyer, who is a former mayor of New York City, made the disclosure during a wild interview on Fox News’ “Watters’ World.”

Giuliani told host Jesse Watters that his goal was to make sure Trump emerges as “totally vindicated” following the Democrats’ failed impeachment proceedings on Capitol Hill, which ended last week with the president acquitted on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

REPUBLICANS SEEK HUNTER BIDEN TRAVEL RECORDS FROM SECRET SERVICE SHORTLY AFTER TRUMP ACQUITTAL

“I want to prove what happened,” Giuliani said, “because I believe if we prove what happened, he will be totally vindicated.”

Watters asked Giuliani if he had any documentation regarding Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine before adding that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., will be investigating that.

“Lindsey, get started,” Giuliani said, laughing, before declaring he had “what I used to call when I was U.S. attorney, the smoking gun.”

Watters’ summarized the “smoking gun” as “a ’roundabout’ — an international wire to avoid detection disguised as a loan.”

Giuliani voiced his frustration that Biden’s father — former Vice President Joe Biden, who’s now running for president — wasn’t investigated back when he bragged about getting Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin fired.

“Look, the government has been so lax in investigating, it’s pathetic,” Giuliani said. “I mean … when I was a U.S. attorney … the day Joe Biden made that boastful announcement … the investigation would have begun the next day for bribery.”

Giuliani ended the segment by declaring, “We’ve got the documents, Lindsey.”

New XFL kicks off with entertaining debut between DC Defenders, Seattle Dragons

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6113644490001_6113642291001-vs New XFL kicks off with entertaining debut between DC Defenders, Seattle Dragons Stephen Whyno fox-news/sports/xfl fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 001fce96-b433-5dcd-bdf2-4085654cca08

WASHINGTON  — The debut of the new XFL had a punt blocked for a touchdown, a juiced-up crowd roaring for big plays and a player swearing during an in-game television interview.

The actual football was hit and miss. College national championship-winning former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones was the biggest star on the field and took the microphone to address fans before the start of a brand-new football league.

“This is for the love of football,” Jones said. “Enjoy.”

Jones’ D.C. Defenders beat the Seattle Dragons 31-19 Saturday afternoon in the opener of the new XFL that provided plenty of entertainment in person and on TV. It’s far too early to tell if the XFL can take a foothold where its previous incarnation and the recently unsuccessful Alliance of American Football failed, but executives are willing to wait and see.

XFL COMMISH SAYS LEAGUE ‘NEVER REALLY CONSIDERED’ COLIN KAEPERNICK, MORE EXCITED TO SEE CARDALE JONES

“For us, if the fans who attend and watch at home feel as though it was a good football game and they had a fun time either watching or being in this awesome venue with us, that’s success,” XFL chief operating officer Jeffrey Pollack said. “We’re taking a long term view in this. Success ultimately will not be measured in the first game or the first weekend or the first season.”

The first weekend is a chance for football fans to catch a glimpse of some of the few players they might recognize. There’s former Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones with Dallas, former NFL QB Josh Johnson with San Diego and ex-Navy standout Keenan Reynolds playing for Seattle.

It’s not the star power of the NFL, but billionaire Vince McMahon’s latest venture is an attempt to capture the attention of hardcore football fans in the aftermath of the Super Bowl.

“Our expectation for this first season is for football fans to simply give us a look, give us a chance, sample us,” Pollack said. “We understand that fandom is earned. It’s not given. … We think that if you love football, you’re going to love the XFL.”

In the league opener, a crowd of 17,163 almost filled up Audi Field, home of Major League Soccer’s D.C. United. There was a buzz around the stadium in the hours before the XFL’s debut, with cars lining up to enter parking lots and fans checking out a league-sponsored tailgate. Fans were already sporting Dragons and Defenders gear and queued up in long concession lines at halftime.

“I didn’t have real expectations going into the game as far as what the experience was going to be like,” Cardale Jones said. “If I did … they would’ve been blown away.”

The location of the first game made sense in the neighborhood of the NFL’s Washington Redskins, who haven’t won the Super Bowl since 1992 and have just one playoff victory in the past 20 seasons. Fan-made signs mocking the “Hail to the Redskins” slogan and asking Redskins owner Dan Snyder to sell the team were draped from a balcony at the 50-yard line.

The broadcast included in-game interviews with a kicker seconds after he missed a field goal attempt and a defender involved in a scrum that led to a penalty. Seattle’s Dillon Day dropped an F-bomb that made it to the airwaves and went viral.

On the field, the play was a mix of traditional college and pro style with some different twists.

There was no coin toss, and when Reynolds fielded the opening kickoff, he did so with everyone else on the field standing still as part of a rule implemented for safety. The clock ran for all but the time inside each two minute warning, and some other tweaks were different for players.

“It was definitely an adjustment for some of the stuff,” said Seattle’s Austin Proehl, son of former NFL receiver Ricky Proehl, who caught the first touchdown pass in the new version of the weaguery. “It’s something we’ve got to get used to.”

With no extra point kicks, teams had the option of trying one-, two- or three-point conversions, but each coach in the first XFL game only opted for one-point attempts.

“The only difference for I think a coach calling plays is deciding to go for one, two or three,” Seattle coach Jim Zorn said. “That was surprising to me was that rule change, being able to go to one, two or three with your extra point try, there’s a lot of strategy in that.”

Bobby Knight welcomed back to Indiana University after 20 years

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.  — Bob Knight’s short stroll from the practice gym to Assembly Hall ended a 20-year journey home.

It seemed as if he never left.

When the former Indiana Hoosiers coach walked through the tunnel Saturday and onto his old court for the first time since his firing in September 2000, the crowd went wild — chanting his name, roaring with approval, thanking him for all the success and banners he brought to Bloomington.

“It was one of the greatest and most emotional things for me,” said former player Randy Wittman, who had a key role in the reunion. “I don’t know if we’ll see something like this again in college basketball. When he moved back here, I told him you’re back here because this is where you belong.”

MICHIGAN STATE’S TOM IZZO DEFENDS PLAYERS BEING TARGETED BY ‘CHICKEN’ CRITICS

The sellout crowd and dozens of former players lauded Knight after watching a video detailing Knight’s contributions.

He walked in with his son, Pat. He hugged Isiah Thomas. He was assisted into the arena by Quinn Buckner. And the 79-year-old Knight reveled in the moment, pumping his fist, pretending to direct Scott May in a practice drill and even leading fans in a chorus of “de-fense, de-fense.”

No, he didn’t wear his trademark red sweater or throw a chair. But he did appear to get a little misty-eyed as the fans cheered.

“We love you, Bobby,” one shouted.

Knight did not speak to the crowd over the public address system. He didn’t need to.

Everyone in attendance understood what the combustible coach had on his 29-season resume: A school record 662 victories, 11 Big Ten championships, five Final Four appearances and, yes, three national titles.

(Associated Press)

They knew some of the stories, too — the Olympic gold medal he won in 1984 with Michael Jordan after cutting Charles Barkley; the infamous chair-throwing incident in 1985; and the firing that took place Sept. 10, 2000, causing the rift between Knight and the university.

University officials put Knight on a zero-tolerance policy earlier that year following an investigation into whether he had choked a former player, the late Neil Reed, during a practice. Then, in September, a student accused Knight of grabbing him in a hallway.

Knight responded by calling his own news conference, bringing witnesses to help explain his version. Two days later, the late Myles Brand announced Knight’s firing.

That was his last public appearance in the building — until Saturday.

Despite the tireless efforts of university officials, led by athletic director Fred Glass, Knight refused every chance to come back.

He skipped championship team reunions and even declined to attend his own induction into the school’s athletic Hall of Fame in 2009 because he said he didn’t want his presence to detract from other class members.

The thaw began in earnest last spring when he made a surprise appearance at an Indiana baseball game. In July, he bought a house three miles from the basketball arena.

“I visited Coach in Montana and Texas,” former player Mike Woodson said. “This is home. I’ve spent the last month back here in Bloomington with him and had dinners a few times with him and we were happy as hell he wanted to come back.”

Knight hadn’t exactly been invisible around Bloomington or the state after the firing.

He took the Texas Tech job, and then retired in 2008 with a then-record 902 career wins. He worked on ESPN as a color analyst. He gave speeches, attended fundraisers, signed autographs and attended basketball games and practices around Indiana.

He just didn’t associate himself with the Hoosiers.

He also spoke at a Donald Trump rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in October 2016 and at another Trump rally on the south side of Indianapolis in November 2018.

And yet everyone associated with Indiana basketball still had one question: Will he ever come back?

“When he moved back here, I knew he was in a good place,” Wittman said. “I knew he was happy here, living, and I told him you belong here.”

It didn’t take long for the rumors to start.

Some expected his return to come against Ohio State, his alma mater, on Jan. 11. Instead, he attended a game that day at Marian University, an NAIA school in Indianapolis, where another former player, Steve Downing, is the athletic director.

But with the Hoosiers playing their biggest rival, Purdue, longtime friend and rival Gene Keady seated in the front row and his 1980 Big Ten championship team being honored Saturday, Knight made it to Assembly Hall and delivered one of his traditional pregame speeches to the current Hoosiers before their 74-62 loss to the Boilermakers.

“I was standing there and he was coach Knight,” Wittman said. “It was like he hadn’t left that locker room. The words he gave to those players before they went out on the floor, it was fabulous.”

The fans thought so, too, sending Knight home with one lasting chant: “Thank you Coach, thank you Coach.”

Jesse Watters to Democrats unhappy with Trump’s tone after acquittal: ‘I don’t care’

Jesse Watters celebrated President Trump‘s “best week ever” Saturday during his “Watters’ World” segment by responding to “the left.”

“The president broke Joy Behar,” Watters said. “She just malfunctioned out there on live TV.”

“I’m crazy today. He’s made me crazy this week,” Behar had said on ABC News’ “The View” after an earpiece malfunction. “He’s winning because I’m getting nuttier and nuttier.”

Watters also turned his attention to Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.

“A powerful address boasting about the blue-collar boom, showcasing personal stories of sacrifice with a very inspiring patriotic flourish there at the end,” Watters said, before blasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s ripping of Trump’s speech.

“She wanted to prove the radical Democrats that she hated Trump just as much as they did,” Watters said. “But regular Democrats hated that and they ripped her.”

“They looked like they hated our country and Nancy Pelosi, the whole time, she’s sitting up there with a disgusting look on her face,” a C-SPAN caller had said. “It’s outrageous.”

Watters said Democrats did not care for the president’s tone after he was acquitted, before blasting Democrats for their actions.

“Democrats didn’t like Trump’s tone. I don’t care. The fanatical left just put everyone through hell for three years. For what? Nothing,” Watters said. “No collusion, no obstruction, no high crimes. Now, what are they going to do? We’ll find out next week, […] and we’ll be ready.”

Boston Market

Nothing says “I love you” more than barbecue, and Boston Market has the perfect item on its menu that does just that this Valentine’s Day: the BAE-by Back Ribs.

The limited-edition sweet and saucy ribs are served in a bouquet, saying farewell to the traditional flowers and chocolate.

“When we first toyed with the idea of adding Baby Back Ribs to our menu, we knew we wanted to focus on flavor and quality,” said Chef Tony Fialho, director of culinary innovation at Boston Market. “Baby Back Ribs are sure to delight barbeque enthusiasts everywhere, but when packaged in a delectable bouquet, they’re the picture-perfect Valentine’s Day gift to help anyone delight –and feed — that special someone.”

While the ribs will be a permanent option on Boston Market’s menu, the bouquet of rips will only be sold on Feb.14 for $29.99.

Everyone knows Red Lobster is famous for its Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Now, the seafood restaurant chain is offering its prized food item nicely packaged in a heart-shaped box, only without the chocolate.

“Valentine’s Day is approaching and that doesn’t have to mean another year of gifting boring bouquets or cheap chocolates,” Red Lobster said of its Valentine’s Day biscuits. “What if you could surprise your loved one with a gift that’s guaranteed to warm their heart and appetite?”

The Red Lobster special will be available on Feb. 10, giving customers the option to purchase a half-dozen Cheddar Bay Biscuits from RedLobster.com for either pickup or delivery. The limited-edition boxes can be made available for an additional $1.

If you’re not feeling the spirit of love this year, there’s an option for you, too. Burger King is now touting an unorthodox special that allows customers to trade in a photo of their ex and exchange it for a nice, juicy Whopper. What’s more, the flagship burger will be served in a special “breakup box.”

The promotion is inspired by both Valentine’s Day and the new movie “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn),” the film being the latest in the DC Extended Universe cinematic series. The film’s main character, Harley Quinn, is apparently dealing with the aftermath of breaking up with the Joker.

“This Valentine’s Day, who needs The Joker when you can have the King?” Burger King said in a press release. “In a new partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures and their new film ‘Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn),’ Burger King restaurants are celebrating Anti-Valentine’s Day in true Harley Quinn fashion.”

“On the heels of the February 7 ‘Birds of Prey’ movie release, in which everyone’s favorite anti-heroine Harley embarks on her post-breakup emancipation from The Joker, Burger King is turning ex-flames into flame-grilled Whopper sandwiches,” the company added. “Talk about turning up the heat!”
