Matt Gaetz slams Don Lemon: ‘He is like CNN’s professional eye-roller’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6118913909001_6118911934001-vs Matt Gaetz slams Don Lemon: 'He is like CNN's professional eye-roller' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brie Stimson article 9549db73-056e-55d6-ad63-aec3ed05830b

CNN‘s Don Lemon lost journalistic credibility when he laughed on camera in reaction to a guest’s derisive comments about supporters of President Trump, a Republican congressman said last week.

During an appearance on Fox Business’ “Trish Regan: Primetime,” U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., unloaded on Lemon, the host of “CNN Tonight.”

“He is like CNN’s professional eye-roller who always wants to gasp himself out of breath at everything he sees from the president,” Gaetz, a close ally of Trump, told Regan.

CNN DON LEMON PANEL FACES INTENSE BACKLASH FOR MOCKING TRUMP SUPPORTERS AS ILLITERATE ‘CREDULOUS RUBES’

“He is like CNN’s professional eye-roller who always wants to gasp himself out of breath at everything he sees from the president.”

— U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

But on Saturday, Gaetz doubled down in a Twitter message, referring to Lemon as “a hack,” and “not a journalist.”

“The Left and the mainstream media have contempt not just for President Trump, not just for his allies in Congress, but also for the American people who support President @realDonaldTrump,” Gaetz wrote in a retweet of a clip from his “Primetime” appearance.

Lemon had been roundly criticized for falling into hysterical laughter Jan.25 when a panelist on his show mocked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for claiming an NPR reporter couldn’t find Ukraine on a map before calling Trump’s base of supporters the “credulous boomer rube demo.”

While talking about a statement Pompeo put out Jan. 25 that suggested NPR reporter Mary Louise Kelly misidentified Bangladesh for Ukraine on a blank map, former GOP strategist Rick Wilson said Pompeo “also knows deep within his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it.”

Lemon started to laugh while Wilson continued.

DON LEMON ADDRESSES CNN PANEL MOCKING TRUMP VOTERS

‘Defined by ignorance’

“He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world. And so that’s partly him playing to the base and playing to their audience. You know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump.”

Lemon continued laughing uncontrollably as Wilson said in a mocking Southern accent: “Donald Trump’s the smart one — and y’all elitists are dumb!'”

“You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling!'” New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali added.

Lemon addressed the issue on his show Tuesday, saying he didn’t catch everything that Wilson had said and he was not laughing at Trump supporters.

“Ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you — I don’t believe in belittling people, belittling anyone for who they are, what they believe, or where they’re from,” he said. “During an interview on Saturday night, one of my guests said something that made me laugh. And while in the moment, I found that joke humorous. And I didn’t catch everything that was said.”

He added that journalists aren’t perfect. “When we get it wrong, we say we got it wrong, we apologize, and we move on.”

Wilson also addressed the backlash, tweeting last week that his wife and kids have started to received death threats, but he didn’t apologize for what he said.

Gaetz’s alternative view

In his “Primetime” appearance, Gaetz made his case for why he believes more Americans support President Trump rather than share the view of Lemon and his panelists.

“Donald Trump isn’t just leading a campaign,” Gaetz told Regan, “he is presiding over a political movement. That’s why we’ve only gained strength leading into 2020 and why this impeachment sham is only intensifying our support for our transformational president. Because in real America we see things happening that will impact our lives — a better trade deal in our hemisphere, actually standing up to China. President Trump functionally ending our involvemnet in the Syrian civil war and not starting any new ‘forever wars.’

“These elements of an American nationalist economic agenda, paired with a realistic view of the world where we kill the terrorists and actually come home to bring the resources to our country? That is going to fuel a tranformational victory in 2020.

“And you know what? After the Democrats have impeached Trump and he comes back and wins anyway? Oh, wait till we get a load of Donald Trump in his second term. I think we’re going to be even more transformative.”

Halftime show performer Shakira turns 43 on Super Bowl Sunday

Today is an exhilarating day for Shakira as the Colombian singer will join Jennifer Lopez for an unforgettable halftime show. But it turns out Super Bowl Sunday is special to the star for another reason: she’s celebrating her 43rd birthday.

Shakira has spent the past few months counting down for Super Bowl LIV, which takes place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.

It was first announced that the mother of two and JLo would headline the show back in September.

SHAKIRA SHOWS OFF HER ABS IN HOT PINK BIKINI SHE DESIGNED

“We are so excited to announce that global superstars Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will take the stage together for the very first time at the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show. We’ve been working closely behind-the-scenes with our longstanding partners at the NFL, and now alongside Roc Nation to bring these mega superstars together. It is a testament to our partnership and commitment to push the envelope of what is possible,” Adam Harter, senior vice president of sports, media and entertainment at PepsiCo said in a statement.

Shakira shared her excitement in her own post to Instagram.

“It doesn’t get any bigger than this! So excited about getting on that #SuperBowlLIV #PepsiHalftime stage! 🤩🔥 @jlo #nosvemosMiami #happybirthdaytomeee,” she captioned the post.

The 43-year-old has been working hard to prepare for Sunday. On Wednesday, Shakira shared a video with her dancers, who excitedly announced they only had “four days to go.”

The singer has also shared behind-the-scenes clips of her lifting weights and doing squats in the gym.

“Getting ready for Super Bowl at the Miami Dolphins’ Baptist Health Training Facility,” she captioned a video posted earlier this week.

The Colombian singer and dancer revealed in October that Jay-Z personally called her to extend the offer of performing with Lopez on NFL’s biggest night, which his management company Roc Nation is producing.

“He called me and he asked me if I wanted to be a part of that. And, of course, I didn’t hesitate,” she said. “I said, ‘Of course, count on me.’ And, he mentioned that Jennifer was also involved, and I feel that it’s going to be great because she also represents a really important part of the Latino community who lives in the U.S., and who has been born and raised in the U.S.”

Shakira has been married to husband Gerard Pique, a Spanish soccer star, since 2011. The couple share two sons, Milan, 7, and Sasha, 5.

Janice Dean: Groundhog Day — Why I love it (and what the day means)

First off, before we get to the Groundhog Day holiday, I must confess about my obsession with the movie “Groundhog Day.”

It’s definitely in my top 5 favorite films of all time. I still have the worn-out VHS copy in my collection that I can’t bear to get rid of even though I don’t have a VHS anymore!

Actor Bill Murray is the perfect as the cynical deadpan weatherman Phil Connors who keeps waking up to the exact same day – February 2nd in Punxsutawney, Pa. while he’s there to cover the great tradition of finding out whether the groundhog will see his shadow and we’ll all have six more weeks of winter.

GROUNDHOG DAY STAR PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL SHOULD RETIRE AND BE REPLACED BY A ROBOT, PETA SAYS

I’m one of those annoying people that can recite some of the funniest lines as they are happening. Allow me to demonstrate:

Phil: “This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You’re hypocrites, all of you!” 

Phil: “There is no way that this winter is ever going to end as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don’t see any other way out. He’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.”

Phil: “Come on, all the long-distance lines are down? What about the satellite? Is it snowing in space? Don’t you have some kind of a line that you keep open for emergencies or for celebrities? I’m both. I’m a celebrity in an emergency.”

Alright… back to why I love one of our nation’s oldest traditions: It celebrates what I do for a living: THE WEATHER!

Back in 1887, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil was first given the task of predicting the next 6 weeks of winter. The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, takes care of Phil year-round, and on each Feb. 2, members of the club’s inner circle gently nudge him to wake up at sunrise to see if he sees his shadow.

If he does, it’s 6 more weeks of cold and snow. If not, spring will arrive early!

It’s a simple formula but the pomp and circumstance surrounding it is epic and should be on everyone’s bucket list. I must admit, I am incredibly biased when it comes to the groundhog.

Punxsutawney has a special place in my heart because, in 2017, I was given the incredible honor of being inducted into the Punxsutawney Meteorologist Hall of Fame. My plaque and picture are proudly displayed in the Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center along with some pretty amazing forecasters and academics.

That year, I brought my whole family with me and, just like Phil Connors, we all woke up at 3:00 a.m. and headed to Gobbler’s Knob to see the “seer of seers, sage of sages, prognosticator of prognosticators and weather prophet extraordinary” wake up from his long winter’s nap to predict whether there would be six more weeks of winter.  And just like in the movie, my family stayed at a local bed-and-breakfast with a kind resident named Shirley who has lived in Punxsutawney her whole life.

People come from all over the country to see the groundhog in its full glory. And the year I went with my family, I had the honor and privilege to meet Phil who lives in the library with his wife Phyllis during the offseason.

At the time of the meeting, he was sleepy, and I wasn’t able to have a full conversation with him, but it will still be something I will remember and is up there as far as status goes along with rock stars and celebrities.

In terms of Phil’s forecasting abilities (whispering so he doesn’t hear me) the groundhog’s track record isn’t that great. He’s been correct only 39 percent of the time, however (and this needs to be reported more often) this discrepancy in poor forecasting is because his wording gets lost in translation.

Janice and her family meet Phil the groundhog.

Since there’s only one Phil, and this tradition has been happening for over 100 years, I asked his entourage how he stays so young.

More from Opinion

Apparently there’s a magical “Groundhog Punch” that he’s fed every summer at the annual Groundhog Picnic that extends his life for another seven years.

I asked his inner circle if I could try some of this incredible elixir and they looked at me with horror and told me humans aren’t allowed to try it. Darn it.

So, what will America’s most famous groundhog predict come Sunday morning?

Phil predicted an early spring in 2019 (I was there for “Fox & Friends” for the rare forecast) but I’m going to place my bet that he says 6 more weeks of winter in 2020 despite the fact that the Northeast has experienced a relatively mind winter so far.

As for the forecasting done by computers and humans, anything beyond a 7-day forecast sometimes is a coin toss. — Especially when it comes to predicting long-range winter storms.

CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP

So Phil is doing something that is very tough to begin with. But, we have to respect his craft, and I’m just grateful he makes weather forecasting a thing to celebrate.

Keep up the good work, Phil. And let me know if you ever decide to sell that special elixir that keeps you looking so young.

Lamar Jackson named NFL’s MVP, joins Tom Brady as only unanimous selections

MIAMI — Lamar Jackson‘s stunning season not only earned him The Associated Press NFL Most Valuable Player Award, but he won it unanimously.

That’s right: The second-year quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens joins Tom Brady as the only players to receive every vote for MVP.

Jackson drew all 50 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league. Baltimore’s All-Pro set an NFL record for yards rushing by a quarterback (1,206) and led an offense that compiled more yards on the ground (3,296) than any in league history. The Ravens won their final 12 games of the regular season to finish at 14-2, the league’s best mark.

Jackson had a powerful message for kids who have been told they should change positions on the field and who face criticism and doubters.

“Make those people eat their words,” he said. “It feels good when you can make those people eat their words because they’re so negative. How are you going to wake up and be so negative about somebody who’s not negative toward you or don’t do anything wrong? Don’t worry about what they say. Do you. Stay focused because you want to be great, and you’re going to be great. Just do you.”

“Stay focused because you want to be great, and you’re going to be great. Just do you.”

Brady was also an unanimous MVP in 2010. And like Brady, Jackson’s special season did not include a championship.

“I’m still young,” Jackson said. “I’ve still got a lot of work to do. I’m not really trying to dwell on what I just did. If I win a Super Bowl, you’ll probably see a lot more emotion.”

The Ravens were big winners at NFL Honors on Saturday. John Harbaugh won coaching honors, and his offensive coordinator, Greg Roman, took best assistant coach honors.

Tennessee’s Ryan Tannehill earned the Comeback Player award by one vote over Jimmy Garoppolo, who will quarterback the 49ers in Sunday’s Super Bowl. New Orleans’ Michael Thomas took top offensive player honors, while New England’s Stephon Gilmore grabbed the defensive player award.

Rookie honors went to 49ers edge rusher Nick Bosa and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, the top overall pick in last April’s draft.

Edge rusher Calais Campbell of the Jacksonville Jaguars won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

Thomas is only the second wide receiver to win Offensive Player of the Year. He is in good company: The other receiver to take the honor was Hall of Famer Jerry Rice in 1987 and 1993.

While Rice holds virtually all of the significant NFL receiving records, Thomas has one that made a huge difference with the voters. Thomas caught a league-record 149 passes for 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns. He also played five games without regular quarterback Drew Brees, yet made 42 catches in those outings.

“It was just consistency and following our leader, Drew Brees. He’s been a tremendous example for everyone across the league,” Thomas said. “I don’t take that for granted. I take notes on how he prepares. … Honestly, it’s hard for me to even pat myself on the back without patting the people around me on the back, because they’ve helped me tremendously.”

Gilmore is the first cornerback in a decade to win Defensive Player of the Year.

Considered one of the game’s best cover cornerbacks, the All-Pro made his eighth pro season his best with a career-high six interceptions that tied for the NFL lead. Gilmore was a key member of the league’s stingiest defense in 2019; New England allowed 225 points in winning an 11th straight AFC East title.

“Each and every week, I feel like I’m going against the best receivers every game, and I was able to shut them down as much as I can,” Gilmore explained. “That’s tough being on an island, tough playing a lot of man-to-man coverage each and every week, but I feel like I did that every week.”

For leading the Ravens to the NFL’s best record, including a 12-game winning streak to end the regular season, Harbaugh joined brother Jim (2011) as Coach of the Year.

“I joke with the players all the time, you know, we’re robbing the same train,” he said. “This is a blessing. This is a privilege to be part of this whole thing. You get a chance to coach players like Mark Ingram, Lamar Jackson, Ronnie Stanley — all the guys we have, it’s just something you can’t take for granted.”

Tannehill noted that being the chosen comeback player is a mixed blessing.

“It’s an honor you never want to be up for, but it’s an honor to be recognized, and you had to overcome a lot of adversity,” he said. “To get this point, it’s special.”

Bosa, the second overall draft choice behind Murray, was such a force on the edge of the 49ers’ line that he even received votes for the All-Pro team at a very competitive position.

Bosa’s nine sacks were the fourth most for a 49ers rookie. He was third in the NFL with 68 pressures, according to SportsInfo Solutions, trailing only Cameron Jordan and Danielle Hunter, and his 16 tackles for loss tied him for fifth in the league.

Murray joined such other No. 1 overall selections as Earl Campbell and Cam Newton as offensive rookie winner. The fast, elusive and creative quarterback is the sixth man to do that double; Newton is the most recent, in 2011, one year after Sam Bradford did it. The others were running backs Campbell (1978), Billy Sims (1980) and George Rogers (1981).

Murray started all 16 games, going 5-10-1 with 20 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. He ran for 544 yards and four more scores.

“I think everybody sets out with individual goals and I knew if I played well enough — that’s not obviously the goal — but it was to do my part on the field,” Murray said.

“Lead my guys to wins and try to play as best as I can while being in the position to do so, and I had a lot of help around me.”

Results were announced at NFL Honors.

Joe Theismann, Lou Holtz, Barstool Sports founder give Jesse Watters their Super Bowl LIV predictions

Jesse Watters on Saturday brought in an all-star panel to talk about Sunday’s big game, including Super Bowl-winning legend Joe Theismann, former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz and Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy.

Theismann, who won it all with the Washington Redskins, says the game hinges on the Kansas City Chiefs’ defense.

“I like Kansas City. I think it falls on the shoulders not of the offense of the Kansas City Chiefs, but the defense of the Kansas City Chiefs,” Theisman said on “Watters’ World.”

“They controlled Derrick Henry, who’s a heck of a back,” he said. “I think if they control San Francisco’s running game, put them in [Jimmy Garoppolo’s] hands, even though he hasn’t thrown a lot over the last couple of weeks.”

“I think you’d rather have a chance with Jimmy throwing the football,” Theisman said.

“It’s been 50 years since Kansas City’s been in the Super Bowl. It’s been 16 years since [head coach Andy Reid has] been in the Super Bowl. He’s good,” Holtz said. “He’s the seventh-winningest coach of all time and he’s [only] been the Super Bowl one time.”

“But I do believe […] it is such a close matchup,” Holtz added.

Portnoy, who is betting on the Chiefs, told Watters he lamented that his New England Patriots were not in the big game this year.

All three members of the panel did agree on one thing: that quarterback Tom Brady would be in New England with the Patriots next season.

“They will be back and they’ll be back in the Super Bowl,” Portnoy said.

Des Moines Register, CNN cancel final Iowa poll after Buttigieg reportedly left off at least one call

DES MOINES, Iowa – There will not be a final Des Moines Register poll in Iowa ahead of Monday’s caucuses.

The newspaper, along with media partners CNN and Mediacom, announced Saturday night that they would not be releasing their survey, which is considered the gold standard in Iowa polling.

The shocking news came after a Democratic presidential candidate’s name was omitted in at least one of the poll’s interviews with a respondent. The New York Times is reporting that the candidate left off the call was Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Ind.

BUTTIGIEG UNDER PRESSURE TO FINISH STRONG IN IOWA

The Register, in a statement posted just minutes before the poll was scheduled to be released, said: “Nothing is more important to the Register and its polling partners than the integrity of the Iowa Poll. Today, a respondent raised an issue with the way the survey was administered, which could have compromised the results of the poll. It appears a candidate’s name was omitted in at least one interview in which the respondent was asked to name their preferred candidate.”

“While this appears to be isolated to one surveyor, we cannot confirm that with certainty. Therefore, the partners made the difficult decision to not to move forward with releasing the Iowa Poll,” the newspaper added.

In a statement, CNN added that “we were unable to ascertain what happened during this respondent’s interview, and cannot determine if this was a single isolated incident.”

The Buttigieg campaign, according to The New York Times, said that an Iowa supporter received a phone call from an operator working for the pollster, but that Buttigieg’s name was not listed among the Democratic presidential candidates.

The Register has published the Iowa Poll for 76 years, and Selzer & Co., which conducts the survey, has long been considered a well-regarded polling organization.

Fox News had not heard back from the Buttigieg campaign to confirm The Times’ reporting that Buttigiege was not listed.

Former Green Beret and Seattle Seahawks long snapper Nate Boyer appeared on “Fox Report” Saturday to preview the Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

“I grew up a Niners fan. I’m a huge Niners fan. So I’m going San Francisco all the way on that,” Boyer told guest host Mike Emmanuel. “I think it’s going to be a great game. I really do. Incredible offense from the Chiefs’ side of the ball. Incredible defense on the Niners’ side of the ball. And, you know, the Chiefs defense, Niners offense also not too shabby. So it’s going to be spectacular.”

“You know, if the Niners do lose, I will say I’d be incredibly happy for [head coach] Andy Reed,” Boyer added. “He’s a legendary coach and he absolutely deserves it.”

Boyer, who played for the University of Texas, praised 49ers defensive players including Richard Sherman and Nick Bosa, saying it will be a battle between the 49ers defensive line and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Boyer also praised Mahomes, saying: “He can do it all.”

“You know, he’s incredibly dangerous and just shows over and over that he’s tough to stop,” Boyer said, mentioning that he played against Mahomes once in college.

“I played against him in college, too, when he was at Texas Tech. And that team, you know, that team wasn’t a great football team,” Boyer said. “But you could already see that this kid was different.”

Emmanuel asked Boyer what it was like to deal with pressure situations like playing in the big game.

“You just got to focus, you know, and you’ve got to stay in your lane,” Boyer said. “And just like in the military, know and trust the man on your left and right.”

“Baywatch” icon Pamela Anderson has split with movie mogul Jon Peters after being married to him for 12 days.

The Hollywood Reporter (THR), which was first to report the news of their secret nuptials earlier this month in Malibu, Calif., broke the news Saturday of their abrupt split after less than two weeks, saying the pair have decided to “uncouple.”

“I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to reevaluate what we want from life and from one another,” Anderson said in a statement provided to Fox News by her rep.

“Life is a journey and love is a process,” she said. “With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process.”

“Thank you for respecting our privacy,” she added.

PAMELA ANDERSON SAYS ‘YOU NEVER REGRET SAYING YES’ FOLLOWING SECRET WEDDING TO JON PETERS

Anderson, 52, and Peters, 74, were married Jan. 20.

A source close to couple told Fox News: “She’s known Jon forever, but she never lived with him, contrary to some reports. And until you live with someone… Well, let’s just say Pamela asked for a break. She is heading back to her compound in Ladysmith, Canada, to be with her family.”

The couple did not have an official marriage license, according to reports.

Anderson and Peters were both married four times previously, THR has reported. Anderson was formerly married to Tommy Lee, Kid Rock and twice to Rick Saloman.

Peters had a 12-year affair with Barbra Streisand. The film veteran produced the 1976 version of “A Star is Born” that starred Streisand; he also produced the 2018 remake that featured Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Byron York and Marie Harf on Elizabeth Warren’s call for ‘unity’ to defeat Trump

Westlake Legal Group ElizabethWarrenInterfaith Byron York and Marie Harf on Elizabeth Warren's call for 'unity' to defeat Trump Victor Garcia fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/the-clintons fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 21c8dd51-27a1-5ea5-bba4-9390110a3ee7

Democratic strategist Marie Harf and the Washington Examiner’s Byron York joined “America’s News Headquarters” Saturday in Iowa to talk about Democratic presidential candidates Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

“If there is anything that can unite Democrats and I would argue some independents, people that helped us win the House in 2013, it is Donald Trump, particularly after this impeachment process where it has been clear how dangerous he is in office for most Democrats,” Harf told host Ed Henry.

Saturday, Warren called on Democrats to unify against Trump.

“We will and we must come together as a party to beat Donald Trump, and I’ve got a plan for that,” Warren said.

York also commented on Sanders’ chances as his campaign surges, saying his supporters are holding a “grudge” that dates back to 2016.

“It’s not that they’re not taking him seriously. They clearly are because he has such a troublemaking capacity,” York said of Sanders and reaction to him from some in the Democratic Party. “But there are all these voters out there and they’ve been remarkably loyal to him for four years and they have a grudge, four years old.”

Harf and York also reacted to former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton once again criticizing Sanders, this time when asked if he could unify the party.

“Well, he can do it, for one,” Clinton said on “Your Primary Playlist” podcast, laughing aloud and criticizing Sanders and his supporters for not getting behind her nomination in 2016.

“I’m mad that Hillary lost. I’m mad at Bernie, didn’t help her more,” Harf said, reacting to the comments. “What we need to focus on right now is 2020 and not 2016. And I feel pretty strongly about that.”

York criticized Clinton for jumping in the fray.

“She lost. She’s not going to run again,” York said. “She’s been out of this for a while. She really doesn’t need to publicly complain about this.”
