Scaramucci claims some White House aides hate Trump: ‘Like a hostage situation’

Westlake Legal Group Scaramucci-Trump Scaramucci claims some White House aides hate Trump: 'Like a hostage situation' Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 8539777e-78c8-5bfd-b908-cface232b3da

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci claimed on Thursday that he knew people within the White House who hated President Trump’s “guts” but were terrified to criticize him.

“We both know people inside the building,” Scaramucci told CNN host Chris Cuomo, “that are whispering to each other that ‘O.K., those guys are right — are they going to come for our help?’ I mean, it’s like a hostage crisis inside the building.”

“They absolutely hate the guy’s guts but they’re scared out of their minds. Look at what he did to me and my wife this week,” Scaramucci said.

His comments came as he and the president traded barbs over social and broadcast media. On Tuesday, for example, Trump tweeted that Scaramucci was “just another disgruntled former employee who got fired for gross incompetence!”

SCARAMUCCI LAUNCHING PAC TO ‘DISMANTLE’ TRUMP: I CAN POSSIBLY MOVE ‘EIGHT PERCENT’ OF HIS VOTERS

Trump was acting like a fascist, Scaramucci argued, by putting the spotlight on him.

“I’m a private citizen … he may not have early-stage dementia but he has full-blown early-stage fascism,” Scaramucci said. “He’s going after private citizens with the power of the presidency.”

Scaramucci went on to call Trump a “basket case,” pointing to his comments like being the “chosen one” for fixing trade with China.

More from Media

In recent weeks, Scaramucci has emerged as a vocal critic of Trump for what he described as “racist” statements on the president’s part.

He’s also launching a PAC in order to “dismantle” Trump and claims he could potentially sway as much as eight percent of Trump voters.

TRUMP DERIDES SCARAMUCCI AS ‘ANOTHER DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE’ IN LATEST TWITTER ATTACK

Both White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel have derided Scaramucci by taking shots at his credibility.

“His feelings just seem to be hurt,” Grisham previously said while responding to Scaramucci’s criticism of Trump’s mental health.

Scaramucci’s comments heightened suspicion that Trump faced internal opposition to his agenda. Some confirmation for those suspicions came in September 2018 when an anonymous senior official published an op-ed denouncing the president in The New York Times. “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” the title read.

Madonna supports Miley Cyrus after her viral Twitter thread denying cheating on Liam Hemsworth

Madonna was among the first celebrities to share their support for Miley Cyrus as she defended herself against accusations of cheating on Liam Hemsworth.

On Thursday, the “Wrecking Ball” singer took to Twitter in a tirade, vehemently denying reports that she was unfaithful to Hemsworth during their brief eight-month marriage.

“I can accept that the life I’ve chosen means I must live completely open and transparent with my fans who I love, and the public, 100% of the time,” Cyrus began in an eleven-post tweetstorm. “What I cannot accept is being told I’m lying to cover up a crime I haven’t committed. I have nothing to hide.”

MILEY CYRUS GETS TATTOO TO COMMEMORATE HER ITALIAN VACATION WITH KAITLYNN CARTER

The star went on to explain how she’s grown from her past persona as a partier. The thread was emotional and raw, giving fans their first insight into the end of the 26-year-old singer’s marriage. Because of the honesty behind it, Madonna took to the comments of the rant–which Cyrus reposted on Instagram–to share her support.

“Thank GOD!! You are human! A woman who has lived. No need to apologize!!” Madonna wrote.

As People notes, actress Shailene Woodley and model Lily Aldridge left red heart emojis on the post. Cyrus’ sister, Brandi, noted that she was proud of her sister.

“love this. So much from the heart. Takes a lot to say. I love every version of u. Perfection is imperfect and that’s a fact,” wrote Bella Thorne.

MILEY CYRUS ‘CHANGED’ FOR LIAM HEMSWORTH BEFORE DIVORCE FILING, REPORT SAYS

The “Party in the U.S.A.” songstress’ diatribe came in response to a TMZ report on Aug. 14 that claimed Cyrus cited Hemsworth’s alleged intense drinking and drug abuse as a smokescreen for what really went down in their marriage – infidelity on behalf of Cyrus.

It was only one day after news broke of their separation that photos surfaced of Cyrus locking lips with Kaitlynn Carter, 30, during a trip to Italy.

Hemsworth officially filed for divorce from Cyrus on Wednesday in Los Angeles, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The pair had a prenuptial agreement in place, so the division of property is likely to move forward without a hitch.

Cyrus and Hemsworth tied the knot in December after losing their Malibu home in a wildfire. They announced their separation after eight months of marriage and more than a decade of on-again-off-again romance earlier this month.

American detained in Russia on spy charges says guards injured him; court extends detention by 2 months

A retired United States Marine detained in Russia for eight months on allegation of spying will remain in detention for two more months, a Moscow court ruled Friday, despite the man’s claims that prison guards had injured him.

Paul Whelan, an American citizen who also holds British, Irish and Canadian passports, will remain detained until late October. Whelan is reportedly being held in cramped conditions at a Moscow detention facility. He felt unwell in court, forcing the court to call an ambulance, though paramedics said he won’t be hospitalized.

During Friday’s appearance, Whelan said the Russian prison guards attacked him, causing him pain. The U.S. Embassy last month said Whelan’s condition has worsened.

“The prosecutor’s office also knows that I was injured by security guards in the pretrial detention center,” Whelan was quoted as saying by Interfax, a Russian news agency, noting that he was in “great pain.”

“Even Salem witches had more opportunities to defend their rights,” said Whelan, who’s facing up to 20 years in prison over the allegations of espionage.

Vladimir Zherebenkov, his lawyer, said that the pre-trial investigation should be over soon and the trial is expected to begin in the fall, the New York Times reported.

“We hope that Paul’s case goes to trial swiftly so that he can speak to the false charges laid against him,” his family said in a statement prior to the court appearance. “We will continue to seek his freedom and look for a diplomatic solution that will bring him back to his family.”

Whelan once pleaded with President Trump to intervene and secure his release during a June court hearing, saying, “Mr. President, we cannot keep America great unless we aggressively protect and defend American citizens wherever they are in the world.”

He accused Russian authorities of trying to “to force a confession,” and said that his “life has been threatened; my rights have been denied.”

Trump hasn’t spoken publicly nor tweeted about Whelan’s case, but media reports say U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton and other Trump administration officials have spoken out against his continued detention, for which they claim the Russian government has produced no evidence.

Whelan previously worked for Kelly Services, which maintains offices in Russia. He received a “bad conduct” discharge from the Marines, according to his official military personnel file obtained by Fox News. His dates of service were listed as May 10, 1994, to Dec. 2, 2009.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard trolls Cleveland Indians after sweep

Westlake Legal Group AP19235003499439 New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard trolls Cleveland Indians after sweep Lucia Suarez Sang fox-news/sports/mlb/new-york-mets fox-news/sports/mlb/cleveland-indians fox-news/sports/mlb fox news fnc/sports fnc article 5bd19855-8963-5827-86ff-6f8681c8db93

The Cleveland Indians learned the hard way: Don’t poke Thor.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who’s nicknamed “Thor” because of his powerful fastball and flowing blond locks, on Thursday dominated the Indians on the mound — and then dropped the hammer on Twitter.

While killing time between two rain delays that ultimately ended in the Mets’ favor, giving New York a 2-0 win over the Tribe and a three-game sweep, Syndergaard trolled the Indians’ social media moderator.

Cleveland’s social team tweeted a video of the U.S. flag at Citi Field blowing violently in the storm Thursday — complete with a fake laptop flying past it into the night.

“Should have closed the press box window…” they wrote.

CLEVELAND INDIANS’ YASIEL PUIG TAKES PAGE FROM LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES BATTER

Syndergaard, who retired 16 batters in a row to start the game and only allowed two hits in six innings, responded about 40 minutes later: “Or fire the guy who lost his computer instead. I suggest the social media guy.”

After the Mets had officially locked up the victory, Syndergaard responded directly to the Indians’ pregame tweet in which the team said it understood their fan base’s “frustration” after splitting a series in the Bronx with the Yankees and then losing two games to a “fringe postseason team.”

“We got some FRINGE for you right here, we call it a SWEEP in NYC. #LFGM,” he tweeted. The hashtag stands for “Lets F—ing Go Mets” and has become a vulgar, but popular, rallying cry during the team’s second-half surge.

The Mets’ three-game sweep helped give them 13 wins in their last 14 home games, a run that’s firmly established them as contenders for one of the two NL Wild Card spots.

Cleveland lost for the seventh time in nine games overall, meanwhile, dropping 3 ½ games behind Minnesota in the AL Central.

Kat Timpf mocks left-wing outrage over Monopoly’s new ‘socialism’ edition 

Fox Nation’s Kat Timpf has a response to those who are apparently outraged by an iconic board game maker poking fun at socialism.  “Wah, wah, wah.  Maybe they’re making fun of socialism because it’s bad,” said Timpf on Fox and Friends Friday morning.

Hasbro, the maker of the beloved family game Monopoly, released a special edition of the game called, Monopoly Socialism.  The satirical-twist on the decades-old game replaces Monopoly’s traditional player tokens with a phonograph, pocket watch, and old fashioned rotary phone.  Instead of players’ collecting $200 when they pass go, the socialism-themed edition instructs players that will receive a $50 “living wage”.

One Assistant Professor of History at Rutgers University-Camden is apparently not amused.  Professor Nick Kapur wrote in a lengthy thread on Twitter, “I bought a copy of Hasbro’s mean-spirited and woefully ill-informed “MONOPOLY: SOCIALISM” board game so you don’t have to.”  Kapur took offense at the portrayal of the political ideology, “It goes without saying that this game is entirely uninterested in trying to understand what socialism actually is and how it might function.”

Kat said the critics of the game are missing the point. “We’ve seen [socialism] kind of not work in the past, so I feel like it might be fair game to make fun of it…I also don’t understand how people are getting so upset about a game.”

Even Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex. added his voice to the debate.  The Senator tweeting his own long thread in response to that Rutgers professor.  “We could do the Venezuela edition: start out (in 1950) with the 4th highest GDP per capital (sic) in the world: end starving in the street with massive shortages of food & medicine,” Cruz tweeted.

Tucker Carlson: San Francisco bans words to hide its crime problem — and to control your mind

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6075955988001_6075953768001-vs Tucker Carlson: San Francisco bans words to hide its crime problem -- and to control your mind Tucker Carlson fox-news/us/crime fox-news/topic/homeless-crisis fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight/transcript/tuckers-monologue fox-news/politics/state-and-local/cities fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 58ffe468-50e2-574e-8b74-87929f5e6943

For the past couple of years, we’ve reported in some horrifying detail on how the professional left has totally transformed the city of San Francisco from this country’s most beautiful city, our Cape Town, into a cesspool of filth, homelessness and drug addiction. That is not an exaggeration. There are now more junkies in San Francisco than there are high school students.

And so you won’t be surprised to learn that the city has also become threatening and dangerous. The rate of property crime in San Francisco is the highest of any big city in America. More than five dozen cars are smashed and robbed every single day of the year. It’s a disaster.

But don’t worry, the city’s leaders have a plan to respond to this. And of course, it’s not more cops or better enforcement of the law. That would be bigoted. Instead, the city of San Francisco has decided to ban words that suggest San Francisco has a crime problem. If people aren’t allowed to talk about crime, maybe they won’t notice crime exists. That’s the thinking.

SAN FRANCISCO HOMELESS STATS SOAR: CITY BLAMES BIG BUSINESS, RESIDENTS BLAME OFFICIALS

So last month, the city’s Board of Supervisors decreed that there’ll be no more “convicted felons” in San Francisco. Going forward, ex-cons are to be called, “justice-involved individuals.”  Well, as it happens, the people they committed crimes against are also  “justice-involved individuals.”

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

So, in other words, victim and criminal are now morally indistinguishable. That’s on purpose. This is woke equality.

But there’s a problem. Back in Washington, leaders of the Democratic Party apparently haven’t gotten the memo on this, and some are still using the term “felon,” which is the real “F” word.

So you might want to send the kids from the room as we play the following clip. We warn you: It’s ugly.

Former President Barack Obama: An overwhelming majority of Americans agree that anyone trying to buy a gun should at least have to prove that they’re not a [bleep] or somebody legally prohibited from owning one. 

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y. 2020 presidential candidate: And I do support full restoration of [bleep] rights to vote. 

Joe Biden, 2020 presidential candidate: I think the policy that the voting rights for [bleep] make sense. 

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.., 2020 presidential candidate: For all of those young men, mostly of color, who got arrested and are now [bleep] for life is selling that weed on the corner. 

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.: Every law-abiding citizen has the right to have a gun unless you’re a [bleep]. 

Hillary Clinton: What enabled that young man to get a gun he was not entitled to? He was a [bleep]. He had a [bleep] conviction. 

Sorry, about all the “F” words. How insensitive can you get? Someone better call H.R.

Meanwhile, back in the city of San Francisco, there are no longer any “juvenile delinquents.” The whole category has disappeared. Criminals under 18 are now referred to as “young people impacted by the juvenile justice system” — as if the system, and not the kid, committed the crime, which is what the left in fact believes. It’s your fault, not theirs. Check your privilege, Middle America.

Drug addicts, meanwhile, in San Francisco are now called “people with the history of substance use.” “Use,” not “abuse.” Get it? Heroin addicts are now the same as insulin-dependent diabetics; both use “substances.” You can’t call one better than the other. They’re both exactly the same.

Now, you could laugh this off. San Francisco, after all, is where all the crazy things happen. But language makes thought possible. When the words disappear, so does our ability to think about the ideas the words represent.

When they prevent you from saying the obvious, over time, it becomes impossible to see the obvious. And that’s exactly of course, why they do it.

Moulton ends long-shot White House bid, in latest 2020 Dem drop-out

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6064606054001_6064601430001-vs Moulton ends long-shot White House bid, in latest 2020 Dem drop-out Paul Steinhauser fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox news fnc/politics fnc dc3880a7-e84d-5487-a35f-a2c0dc2d73fd article

Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts repeatedly has said he’s not a quitter.

But on Friday, the three-term congressman and U.S. Marine veteran who served four tours of duty in the Iraq War ended his long-shot bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Moulton’s campaign said the congressman would formally announce the news during his speech later Friday in San Francisco at the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting.

MOULTON ADMITS NOT QUALIFYING FOR DEBATES MAKES WHITE HOUSE BID MORE ‘CHALLENGING’

“I am ending my campaign for president,” Moulton will say, according to an advance copy of his remarks obtained by Fox News. “Though this campaign is not ending the way we hoped, I am leaving this race knowing that we raised issues that are vitally important to the American people and our future.”

“I have only been in this race since April—I got in later than many of the other candidates—but I couldn’t be more proud of what our team has accomplished over these last several months,” he’s expected to add.

Moulton’s move comes as it was all but certain he wouldn’t reach the thresholds set by the DNC for candidates to make the stage at the third round of primary debates, which will be held next month. The congressman failed to qualify for the first and second round of debates.

Moulton’s dropping out of the race comes just two days after Jay Inslee ended his White House bid. The longtime climate crusader and former congressman announced yesterday that he would run for a third term as Washington state’s governor.

Last week another lower-tier candidate – former two-term Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper – also ended his presidential campaign. On Thursday he announced a bid for his state’s Democratic Senate nomination, in hopes of challenging Republican Sen. Cory Gardner in next year’s election.

And last month long-shot Rep. Eric Swalwell of California dropped out of the White House race.

THE LATEST FROM FOX NEWS ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

Even with these departures, there are still roughly 20 Democrats running for their party’s presidential nomination.

In an interview with Fox News earlier this month, Moulton said he’s “not a quitter.”

But he acknowledged that if he failed to make the debates in September and October “it definitely makes it more challenging” to continue his White House bid.

And he said that “obviously if I get to a point where I just don’t see breaking out, then I would try to find who I think would be the next best nominee to take on Trump and get behind him or her.”

Moulton emphasized that one of the reasons he ran for president was he believed “it’s the best way to serve the country because I don’t think there’s a better nominee to take on Donald Trump. I think the image of a young combat veteran going up against the guy who’s a draft dodger on stage is exactly what we need to win.”

In his speech in San Francisco on Friday, Moulton will announce that he’s now running for re-election.

“While this is the end of my campaign, it is certainly not the end of our efforts,” he’ll say. “I will once again be running for Congress in the 6th District of Massachusetts, my home, and I can’t wait to get back at it.”

More GSA debauchery: Probe finds ex-official had sex on agency’s roof with White House staffer

The same agency that sparked a firestorm during the Obama administration for lavish spending at a Vegas conference – complete with a widely mocked photo of a grinning fed lounging in a hot tub – is back in the headlines. This time, for an incident involving a former official, vodka and … yada yada yada, some sex on a roof.

The details from the 2017 liaison emerged in a newly released inspector general report. The watchdog’s investigation found multiple violations committed by Brennan Hart, a former associate administrator and acting chief of staff at the General Services Administration.

FLASHBACK: HOT-TUBBING GSA OFFICIAL INDICTED

According to the 2018-dated report, Hart admitted to investigators that he kept a bottle of vodka at his desk, while stating he only drank after business hours. In the same interview, he also admitted to having “sexual relations” at GSA headquarters in July 2017 with a White House staffer, whom the report does not identify.

Brennan Hart was cited in a GSA watchdog report for drinking and having sexual relations at the central office in Washington. 

The visit began with Hart fixing a drink using the bottle of vodka. The encounter developed from there.

“He said their sexual activity began in the Administrator suite area and culminated with oral sex on the rooftop of the Central Office,” the report said. “Hart stated this occurred on only one occasion.”

WRC in Washington first reported on the IG’s findings, obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request.

Hart’s employment ended in March 2018, the same month the IG’s report was transmitted to agency leaders and the White House counsel.

CONGRESS PROBES MORE QUESTIONABLE GSA SPENDING

An agency spokeswoman said in a statement the GSA holds “all employees to the highest ethical standards and takes appropriate actions to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.” Further, the spokeswoman said: “GSA does not tolerate inappropriate use of alcohol in the workplace or any violation of government regulations regarding alcohol. Further, GSA does not tolerate the misuse of government property by any GSA employee.”

The inspector general flagged multiple violations, for the sexual conduct at headquarters and for the alcohol consumption in the office. Hart did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

The report detailed an interview with another GSA official who confirmed he drank alcohol with Hart at the central office in July 2017 after work hours. Further, GSA Administrator Emily Murphy told investigators she “often permits the consumption of alcohol in her office … by her immediate staff after business hours on Fridays,” though is “very careful about such approvals.”

As for the White House staffer, the report indicated agents tried to interview the official but were told they’d need approval by the White House counsel. Their communication with the Trump White House apparently ended there.

The agency is responsible for federal office space and buildings. Despite the seemingly mundane mission, the GSA attracted the scorn and scrutiny of Congress back in 2012 after lavish conference spending was revealed.
