Kamala Harris slams ABC following debate: ‘Not one question about abortion or reproductive rights’

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, blasted ABC following the third Democratic debate on Thursday night for failing to ask any questions about abortion and reproductive rights.

“The #DemDebate was three hours long and not one question about abortion or reproductive rights,” Harris tweeted minutes after the debate ended.

ABC did not immediately respond to Fox News for comment.

KAMALA HARRIS COMPARES TRUMP TO ‘WIZARD OF OZ’ ON TRADE: ‘A REALLY SMALL DUDE

Harris wasn’t the only one critical of ABC. Her colleague, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., went after the network for partnering with “health care industry” advertisers while defending his signature Medicare-for-all legislation.

“We need a health care system that guarantees health care to all people as every other major country does, not a system that provides $100 billion a year in profit for the drug companies and the insurance companies,” Sanders said. “And to tell you how absurd the system is, tonight on ABC, the health care industry will be advertising, telling you how bad Medicare-for-all is, because they want to protect their profits. That is absurd.”

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos moved on to the next candidate as Sanders’ line earned some applause.

Rudy Giuliani: ‘If we have equal justice under the law McCabe has to be prosecuted’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6085832350001_6085830229001-vs Rudy Giuliani: 'If we have equal justice under the law McCabe has to be prosecuted' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 52c1326e-3868-531c-ad5a-e7c8657741b8

The president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, called former FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe a “disgrace” Thursday after it was reported that a U.S. attorney recommended proceeding with charges against the current CNN contributor.

“The fact is that McCabe disgraced the FBI, first of all by leaking FBI agents. By the way you’re not supposed to leak,” Giuliani said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

US ATTORNEY RECOMMENDS PROCEEDING WITH CHARGES AGAINST MCCABE, AS DOJ REJECTS LAST-DITCH APPEAL

It was reported Thursday that U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu made the recommendation to move forward with charges against McCabe.

Giuliani, a former mayor of New York City, said that McCabe eventually being charged is likely the first step in an investigation targeting officials who worked against President Trump.

“So I think this is the beginning of investigating and bringing out the real crimes that took place here, which is honestly what appears to be an emerging conspiracy to frame Donald Trump,” Giuliani said.

Giuliani put forth that in order to have “equal justice under the law” McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey both need to be prosecuted.

“If we have equal justice under the law McCabe has to be prosecuted. And so does Comey,” Giuliani said.

But Giuliani stressed that such actions shouldn’t be based on politics.

“You can’t prosecute other false statement cases or perjury cases just because they’re Democrats or they were helping Hillary, it doesn’t give them immunity from the law,” Giuliani said.

Doug Schoen: At third Dem debate, one big winner and two surprise losers

Westlake Legal Group AP19256005263790 Doug Schoen: At third Dem debate, one big winner and two surprise losers fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Douglas Schoen article 7adbe6a6-d586-5841-b4e4-ad31c4da011b

In the most contentious Democratic debate thus far, a winnowed field of 10 Democratic candidates took the stage in Houston Thursday night and sparred over hot-button issues such as health care and immigration.

Notably, this was the first time that frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden shared the debate stage.

Warren and Biden exhibited stark differences on style, policy and vision for the Democratic Party, embodying two opposing theories of what the party should be.

DEBATE DESCENDS INTO MELEE OVER HEALTH CARE, OBAMA, SOCIALISM AS DEMS STRUGGLE TO SHOW UNITY

This divide was apparent during an explosive debate over health care, during which Biden went on the attack against Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., for the hidden costs associated with their “Medicare-for-all plans.”

More from Opinion

Warren deflected when asked if middle-class taxes will go up to pay for “Medicare for all,” saying total costs would go down – but not explicitly stating whether taxes for middle-class families would increase.

“What we’re talking about here is what’s going to happen in families’ pockets,” Warren said.

“This is about candor, honesty,” Biden retorted. “There will be a deductible – in your paycheck … someone making 60 grand with three kids, they’re going to end up paying $5,000 more.”

Though many were watching Warren expecting her to deliver a knockout performance, the senator fell somewhat short of that expectation. While this will likely not impact Warren’s standing in the presidential race at this early stage – which according to most polls is a close second behind Biden – she did not have the debate moment that many were anticipating.

Aside from Biden’s generally strong performance, he compellingly and convincingly delivered his core message of restoring, protecting and rebuilding the Obama-Biden record.

On the other hand, the first 30 minutes of the debate during the health care discussion were arguably Biden’s best moments on the campaign trail to date. Though the former vice president’s performance was not perfect, he exhibited a much-needed display of strength and preparedness.

Aside from Biden’s generally strong performance, he compellingly and convincingly delivered his core message of restoring, protecting and rebuilding the Obama-Biden record.

“The senator says she’s for Bernie. Well, I’m for Barack,” Biden said about Warren’s support for “Medicare-for-all,” referencing last month’s debate, when Warren said she completely agreed with Sanders on “Medicare-for-all.”

At the previous debate, several progressive candidates took aim at former President Obama’s legacy on health care as a way to attack Biden on his record.

However, in a marked reversal, both Warren and Sen. Kamala Harris of California – who sharply criticized Obama in the last debate – praised the former president for the positive systematic changes to health care that came as a result of ObamaCare.

Indeed, if there was an absentee winner of the debate, it was Obama. Aside from Biden, one of the clearest, and most concise health care arguments came from Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who has polled consistently in the low single-digits and had yet to have a strong debate moment before Thursday night.

Klobuchar said that although Sanders may have written the “Medicare-for-all” bill, she “actually read the bill,” noting that under Sanders’ plan “we will no longer have private insurance as we know it” – resulting in millions of Americans losing their private insurance.

Similar to previous debates, the discussion of immigration had Biden on the defensive over the 3 million undocumented immigrants that were deported under the Obama administration.

Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, in particular, took aim at Biden, using the moment to attack Biden for “taking credit” for positive elements of the Obama legacy and distancing himself from criticism.

“He wants to take credit for Obama’s work but not have to answer any questions,” Castro said of Biden.

These attacks largely fell flat, as did Castro’s attempted jab at Biden’s age, and will surely not result in a post-debate polling spike for Castro that other candidates have experienced after attacking Biden during a debate.

“I stand with Barack Obama all eight years – good, bad, and indifferent,” Biden said in response to the immigration attacks, once again reverting to his campaign message of restoring, protecting and rebuilding the Obama-Biden record.

Aside from Castro’s attacks, throughout the entire night Sanders was the candidate who attacked Biden the most. He went after the former vice president not just on health care, but also on corporations, Biden’s vote in favor of the Iraq war as a senator, and trade.

But while Sanders was one of the more vocal candidates, he did not deliver the performance he needed to in order to pull ahead of Biden or Warren in the polls.

Ultimately, Biden’s impressive – though not perfect – performance was a much-needed display of strength and preparedness and will likely solidify his frontrunner status.

Lenny Dykstra rips ‘Bagel Boss’ Chris Morgan’s shirt at promotional event

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058000326001_6058001367001-vs Lenny Dykstra rips ‘Bagel Boss’ Chris Morgan’s shirt at promotional event Tamar Lapin New York Post fox-news/sports fnc/sports fnc Ben Cohn article 71c9d19e-a025-5b23-bca3-c2be3c257bde

They’re not even in the ring yet and already “Nails” and the “Bagel Boss” have drawn first blood.

Troubled Mets great Lenny Dykstra ripped “Bagel Boss” guy Chris Morgan’s shirt Thursday night — making him bleed — during an Upper West Side promotional event for their upcoming boxing match.

The retired MLB All-Star’s attack sent the pint-sized Long Island brawler tumbling off the stage at the Stand Up NY comedy club on 78th Street and Broadway.

CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST FORMER MLB STAR LENNY DYKSTRA

But Morgan quickly recovered, taking off his tattered shirt and climbing back onstage to lunge at Dykstra, who was held back by a handful of burly men before he could cause more damage.

The ragin’ bagel store customer blasted Dykstra’s ripping his shirt as a “cheap shot.”

“Once the shirt came off it was over, I was all over them, they had to get me off,” he postured to The Post.

The 5-foot-tall fighter went viral in July following a meltdown at a Long Island Bagel Boss, which started when he thought one of the workers was “giggling” at him because of his diminutive stature.

“It’s about belittlement, what she was doing!” he yelled on video. “Giggling, all this crap! Being used by women, going on dates, they lie, say they like me and then use me for my money!”

Dykstra has previously vowed to “f–king punish” Morgan for his woman-hating viral tirade.

At Thursday’s event, Morgan detailed how he’s been gearing up for his Sept. 28 ring bout against the ex-ballplayer in Atlantic City.

“I’ve been jogging every day. Eating better,” he said. “I switched to chicken and fish, whole-wheat bagels, none of that other crap. That gluten-free crap.”

“I am so much more ready. And I’m gonna destroy you,” he yelled at Dykstra.

Dykstra shot back: “If you beat me I will literally walk across the country and swim across the f—ing ocean.”

Sanders laughs out loud at Biden’s ‘rather humorous’ claim he’s too trusting of ‘corporate America’

Westlake Legal Group Sanders-Biden-AP Sanders laughs out loud at Biden's 'rather humorous' claim he's too trusting of 'corporate America' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/vermont fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/delaware fox-news/politics/regulation/health-care fox-news/politics/finance/banking fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-debate fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 4b8e2deb-c012-55af-9122-85e1c8ed6627

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., laughed heartily when Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked him about a claim made by former Vice President Joe Biden during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate in Houston.

Biden criticized Sanders’ Medicare-for-all health care plan, which the Delaware Democrat claimed required some faith in “corporate America.”

Biden said his plan would expand on the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) and vowed to cut costs for families while welcoming all Americans who want the option to be automatically enrolled.

BIDEN MOCKS SANDERS: ‘FOR A SOCIALIST, YOU’VE GOT A LOT MORE CONFIDENCE IN CORPORATE AMERICA THAN I DO’

“If you notice, nobody’s yet said how much this is going to cost,” Biden said. “You have my friend from Vermont saying that the employer will give that money back to the employee.”

He added: “Let me tell you something, for a socialist, you’ve got a lot more confidence in corporate America than I do.”

While Doocy was being interviewed by Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier, Sanders walked past, and the reporter was able to stop him for a brief question on the matter.

“Biden … referred to you as a socialist and he said he thought you were too nice to corporate America,” Doocy said.

Sanders smiled and began laughing.

DEBATE DESCENDS INTO MELEE OVER HEALTH CARE, OBAMA, SOCIALISM AS DEMS STRUGGLE TO SHOW UNITY

“One of us voted for the Wall Street bailout — that was Biden, by the way. One of us voted for disastrous trade agreements that were sponsored by corporate America — that was Biden. One of us voted for a bankruptcy bill that was pushed by the banks — that was Biden,” he said.

“So, to suggest that Bernie Sanders is sympathetic to the corporate elite, I think, is rather humorous.”

More from Media

Sanders elaborated, telling Doocy the only way for Democrats to defeat President Trump in 2020 is to engage in a campaign of “energy and excitement that speaks to the needs of working families.”

“I’m very proud … that I am the only candidate to be 100 percent funded by grassroots donations,” he said.

During the debate, Biden bristled when Sanders went on to blast the former vice president, noting the urgency of cancer patients who are struggling financially.

“I know a lot about cancer,” Biden fired back, in a reference to his son Beau, who died of brain cancer. “And let me tell you something: Every single person who is diagnosed with cancer, or any other disease, will not go bankrupt because of that.”

Fox News’ Brooke Singman contributed to this report.

Bill Maher says 2020 Dems’ far-left policies are a ‘cancer on progressivism’

Westlake Legal Group Maher-Dems Bill Maher says 2020 Dems' far-left policies are a 'cancer on progressivism' Sam Dorman fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/media fnc article 37be19ba-f61b-5a54-99d3-92a6b1e1e178

HBO host Bill Maher derided 2020 Democrats’ apparent shift to the left during the primary season Thursday, suggesting it was a plague on the progressive movement.

“It’s not good. It’s kind of a cancer on progressivism,” Maher said on “Morning Joe” hours before the third Democratic primary debate.

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had asked the comedian about the 2020 field’s criticism of former President Obama: “How maddening is that to you that they’re having this race to the far left?”

More from Media

Several media personalities criticized the 2020 field after the second primary debate when most candidates knocked the Obama administration on issues like immigration and health care as a way to attack the frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden.

OBAMA ALLIES FUME AS DEM CANDIDATES BLAST LEGACY TO SCORE POINTS ON BIDEN: ‘WRONG AND TERRIBLE’

Biden has stood by the previous administration’s Affordable Care Act as other candidates have pursued more aggressive reforms like “Medicare for All.”

Maher warned that Democrats risked hurting their electoral prospects by moving so far to the left, saying that Democrats would only lose if they are “scarier or crazier” than Trump.

“If you run on taking away people’s health care and taxing them too much and taking away all of their guns and trans women get abortion rights — I think that came up in the first debate, I don’t think you are going to win this election,” he added.

Maher called for the Democratic Party to have a “Sister Souljah” moment, referring to former President Bill Clinton distancing himself from a DJ’s racially charged comment in 1992. The phrase “Sister Souljah moment” has come to represent politicians publicly rejecting extreme people or positions.

HARRY REID RIPS DEMS OVER ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL,’ BORDER POLICIES: ‘OF COURSE’ IT WILL HURT US IN 2020

Maher isn’t the only one to call out Democrats’ drift towards the left. Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., predicted that 2020 Democrats would alienate voters by pushing to decriminalize border crossings.

“There are so many more important things to do. Decriminalizing border crossings is not something that should be at the top of the list,” he recently told Vice.

He also indicated that “Medicare for all” would be “much harder to sell” than building upon the Affordable Care Act.

Biden camp warns rivals, says attacking former VP ‘not the way’ to improve polls

HOUSTON — Joe Biden’s campaign offered a warning to the former vice president’s 2020 Democratic primary rivals after Thursday night’s debate: “Attacking Joe Biden is not the way to advance yourself in the polls.”

From the spin room in at Texas Southern University in Houston on Thursday, Biden campaign officials briefed reporters after what they called a “stellar night” and “forceful, passionate performance” from the former vice president.

BIDEN MOCKS SANDERS: ‘FOR A SOCIALIST YOU’VE GOT A LOT MORE CONFIDENCE IN CORPORATE AMERICA THAN I DO’

“I think candidates have seen, not just in the debates, but over the course of this campaign, that attacking Joe Biden is not the way to advance yourself in the polls,” Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Beddingfield said after the debate. “I do think candidates are seeing that, and learning that lesson in terms of where we are in the race.”

The campaign, prior to the debate on Thursday, told reporters that Biden had “a target on his back” as the frontrunner, after grappling with sustained critical media coverage and a narrative from his left flank that he’s not progressive enough.

But during Thursday night’s debate, it was former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro who attempted to bash Biden—this time, seemingly hitting him on his age and memory.

Castro took a shot at Biden’s memory, accusing him of contradicting himself about whether Americans would have to buy into a public health care option under his plan or if they would be automatically enrolled.

“I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in, and now you’re saying they don’t have to buy in,” Castro said. “You’re forgetting that!”

Castro’s comment wasn’t accurate, as Biden, just minutes before stated: “Anyone who can’t afford it gets automatically enrolled in the Medicare-type option we have.”

BIDEN CAMPAIGN REJECTS MODERATE LABEL, SWIPES AT PLAN-OBSESSED RIVALS

But Biden adviser Anita Dunn checked Castro, saying that his “cheap shot” was “based on a lie.”

“I think Castro, who likes to talk about learning from history, clearly didn’t learn from the first two debates that taking personal cheap shots at Vice President Biden actually doesn’t work out that well for the candidate who throws the shot,” Dunn told reporters. “It’s unfortunate that Castro decided to go the route he did.”

Meanwhile, the campaign said Thursday’s debate was an important exchange about policy, and that voters now know more about the candidates. Dunn touted Biden’s performance, saying that Biden’s persona on Thursday was that of “Joe Biden the statesman,” citing his empathy toward other candidates on stage over a series of issues.

“His final answer on resilience really did illustrate why people really have a real connection with Vice President Biden and why they feel he gets their lives and why they could trust him,” she said.

And Biden senior adviser Symone Sanders added that “voters know Joe Biden.”

“They know him, they know his record, they know he’s been there for them,” she said. “So the asserting anything that flies in the face of what the voters know to be true themselves because of their experience with Vice President Biden just won’t stick.”

Colorado boy, 5, stages ‘Up’-themed birthday photoshoot with great-grandparents

A Colorado boy has paid tribute to his favorite movie with a photoshoot.

Elijah Perman, 5, is a huge fan of the 2009 Pixar classic “Up.” His mother, part-time photographer Rachel Perman, says her son is “obsessed” with the movie.

When Elijah and his twin sister Emilee turned 5 recently, Rachel decided to do what she called “magical shoots” for their birthday.

“I was diagnosed with cancer right after my twins were born and had fears if I would even get to see their 5th birthday,” she told Fox News in an email. “… SO for their 5th birthday I wanted to celebrate the things they love with photos! It’s a celebration for me and them!”

Emilee got a photo session with a horse dressed up as a unicorn. Elijah chose to pay tribute to his favorite movie. He donned a boy scout’s uniform similar to the character of Russell, while his great-grandparents Richard and Caroline Bain proved to be dead ringers for Carl and Ellie. And, of course, there were balloons. Lots and lots of balloons.

“It seemed like a sweet idea to get my grandparents involved in the process,” Rachel Perman told Fox News. “I love that we get to celebrate them as well.
