Tucker Carlson hits Warren over sexism accusation against Sanders: ‘What a fraud. What a liar. What a phony’

Westlake Legal Group TUCKER-CARLSON-WALMART Tucker Carlson hits Warren over sexism accusation against Sanders: 'What a fraud. What a liar. What a phony' Victor Garcia fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 30018103-6483-5073-8051-eee84a603575

Tucker Carlson spent the opening moments of his television program Tuesday night weighing in on Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren‘s “ugly” campaign collapse and her new feud with campaign rival Bernie Sanders.

Sanders and Warren’s beef escalated following reports that Sanders told Warren in December 2018 that he did not think a woman could win the White House in 2020.

SEXISM ALLEGATIONS THE DAY BEFORE THE DEBATE AS SANDERS-WARREN MEETING CONTROVERSY EXPLODES

Carlson dissected Warren’s campaign and the burgeoning feud.

“And so as she [Warren] hurtles toward Earth, Warren has pulled her reserve chute. She’s denouncing Bernie Sanders… wait for it… as a sexist,” Carlson said before playing a clip of Sanders from 1988 in which the then-mayor of Burlington, Vt. told an audience: “In my view, a woman can be elected president of the United States.”

“So has Bernie Sanders changed his mind about that?” Carlson asked. “Elizabeth Warren claims that he has. The question is, is she telling the truth?”

The host looked at Warren’s disputed past, including her claims of having Native American heritage. He also mentioned the Massachusetts senator’s repeated campaign trail claim that she was not offered a teaching job because she was pregnant.

“The scenario she described never happened. She made it up. How do we know that?” Carlson asked. “Because Elizabeth Warren herself told a very different story 12 years before.”

“I worked, it was in a public school system that I worked with the children with disabilities. And I did that for a year. And then that summer, I actually didn’t have the education courses,” Warren said in a 2007 interview. “So I was on an emergency certificate it was called and I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, I don’t think this is going to work out for me.”

“So it turns out they didn’t actually wish her luck and fire her for being pregnant,” Carlson said. What a fraud. What a liar. What a phony. We can say that conclusively. So could a lot of voters.”

Carlson believes Sanders didn’t “attack” Warren for being a woman.

“Say what you want about Bernie Sanders. We do regularly. But he probably didn’t attack Elizabeth Warren for ‘being a woman,'” Carlson said. “There are a lot of reasons not to vote for Bernie Sanders, but you have to be a shallow lifestyle liberal to think sexism is one of them.”

Fox News’ Paul Steinhauser and Sam Dorman contributed to this report.

UK police fear Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s security costs will spiral out of control, report says

Westlake Legal Group harrymarkle UK police fear Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's security costs will spiral out of control, report says Julius Young fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/topic/royals fox-news/person/prince-harry fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc dff52e8f-188c-51ec-8b78-a089a6ac4353 article

British police are bracing themselves for the worst and fear that protecting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will cost them dearly, according to a new report on Tuesday.

With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex being considered “internationally protected people,” the couple had a total of 10 specialized officers deployed to provide around-the-clock protection while they celebrated the holidays in Canada, although only six would accompany the couple at all times, according to The Times of London.

The outlet reported that Harry and Markle’s jet setting has placed a strain on London’s Met police as law enforcement is currently finding it “extremely difficult” to properly train the number of royal protection officers required to meet demand.

MEGHAN MARKLE DIDN’T CALL INTO ROYAL FAMILY SUMMIT WITH THE QUEEN BECAUSE IT WASN’T ‘NECESSARY’

Additionally, the Times said the travel costs for the trained officers had risen by more than $2.5 million last year alone.

Harry and Meghan “have not thought out the security implications of their move and have put the Met in an impossible situation,” a former Met police officer told the Times.

JUSTIN TRUDEAU ON MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY’S SECURITY COSTS: ‘WE’RE NOT ENTIRELY SURE’ IF CANADA WILL HELP

The report maintained that Harry is deemed high-risk due to his previous tour in Afghanistan as a British Army officer coupled with his current standing as captain-general of the Royal Marines.

Meanwhile, the anti-monarchy group Republic claimed the costs of royal protection has exceeded $135 million a year paid by taxpayers, according to the report, which said the couple are also demanding principals.

Meanwhile, despite reports that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had made promises directly to the Queen that Canada would pick up the security bill, Global News reports that he is unsure of Canada’s future involvement.

QUEEN ISSUES STATEMENT ON MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY AFTER FAMILY TALKS, AGREES TO PART-TIME MOVE TO CANADA

“There are still a lot of decisions to be taken by the Royal Family, by the Sussexes themselves as to what level of engagement they choose to have,” Trudeau said. “We are obviously supportive of their reflections but have responsibilities in that as well.

“We’re not entirely sure what the final decisions will be,” he added.

According to the Evening Standard, Canada will still provide security to the Sussexes whether or not they continue to be guarded by British royal protection officers from Scotland Yard.

Six Democrats qualified for the DNC’s seventh presidential primary debate.

Eyes are on Iowa as the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates gather there for the seventh debate. The Iowa caucuses take place in less than three weeks. It’s the first contest of the primary.

Only six candidates qualified for Tuesday’s debate, hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register: former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, billionaire business executive Tom Steyer and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The latest polls show mixed results, with no clear favorite. What’s more, Tuesday is the first debate that will not have any candidates of color onstage — a fact some have attributed to the DNC’s qualification standards.

Since December’s debate, three more candidates have dropped out: New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, entrepreneur Marianne Williamson and former housing Secretary Julián Castro. (Here’s a full list of who is still running.)

Rep. Mast waits silently after asking for names of any fallen Americans whose deaths didn’t justify Soleimani strike

Westlake Legal Group soleimani Rep. Mast waits silently after asking for names of any fallen Americans whose deaths didn't justify Soleimani strike Nick Givas fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/us/military fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox news fnc/politics fnc article 00971e4b-9d51-5148-a38d-f1588b675fb1

Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., sat in silence during a congressional hearing on Tuesday after demanding to know which fallen Americans didn’t justify the deadly drone strike carried out against Iranian Gen. Qassam Soleimani earlier this month.

The hearing was called to discuss U.S. foreign policy with regard to Iran, following Soleimani’s death and the rogue nation’s retaliatory attack on American coalition forces in Iraq.

Mast, a retired Army Ranger who lost both legs while serving in Afghanistan, took the opportunity to discuss the threat Soleimani posed and became righteously indignant with those who disagreed with the decision to take him out.

“I look at Soleimani as a terrorist machine gun nest, really. He’s been spraying rounds at the U.S. for many years on many different fronts,” he said. “You want to ask is [an attack] imminent? Well, just because this machine gun nest might be taking a moment to reload, that doesn’t mean that it’s not an imminent threat. It just got done firing rounds over at our embassy. … Just because it was taking a breather to reload — that didn’t mean it wasn’t an imminent threat because it wasn’t literally pushing the button on something.”

Mast then asked the witnesses to name one soldier whose death during the war on terror didn’t justify lethal force in response. He also said he’d be willing to yield his time to another House member if they wished to answer instead.

REP. MAST, A RETIRED ARMY RANGER, TO BE EVICTED FROM OFFICE AT VA AFTER GRILLING OFFICIALS

“There’s a number of my colleagues still remaining here. I am more than willing to yield to any of my colleagues that want to answer this question,” he said. “If you walk out this hallway and you take a right and another right, and another right, you’re going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the war on terror. And I would ask, can any of you provide me one name on that wall that does not justify killing Soleimani?

“I got two minutes and 30 seconds,” the Florida Republican continued. “I’ll be more than happy to sit here and wait. Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing.”

After about 15 seconds, House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., said Mast could continue talking, but he stood firm.

“I’m continuing Mr. Chairman,” he replied. “I’ve got two minutes remaining, I will sit here and wait for somebody to provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify the killing of Soleimani.”

After another 10 seconds of silence, Engle said Mast had made his point and attempted to move on to another member. Mast said he had not yielded back the remainder of his time and had a right to continue waiting, while Engle accused him of disrupting the proceedings.

“I think you’ve made your point. You’re out of order,” Engel repeated.

Ultimately, the chamber continued to sit in silence for the remainder of Mast’s time before he noted that no answer had been given.

Live Updates From the Democratic Debate

With less than three weeks before Iowa’s caucuses, tensions are rising among the top-tier candidates. The de facto truce between Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has evaporated in recent days, Mr. Sanders has attacked former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., remains the object of scorn from his top rivals.

For the first time in the 2020 campaign, there’s a real chance of a four-way battle royale live on the debate stage.

The strategy comes with significant risks. Iowans tend to dislike it when candidates go negative, and progressives are already blanching at the prospect of a prolonged Sanders-Warren conflict, given that many of them believe either candidate would be preferable to the more moderate Mr. Biden and Mr. Buttigieg.

The conflict makes for good television — and CNN in past debates has sought out tensions between the candidates — but it doesn’t always lead to more affection from voters. The trick for candidates Tuesday night will be navigating attacks and counterpunches without undermining Democratic unity and catering to voters’ all-encompassing desire to defeat President Trump.

Mr. Biden often claims he’s not engaging in “hyperbole” — but as Democratic candidates work to appeal to voters of color, that’s exactly what he did as he highlighted his standing with those constituencies in an interview published Tuesday, hours before a debate for which only white candidates qualified.

“I get more support from black and brown constituents than anybody in this race. That’s where I come from. I come from the African-American community,” Mr. Biden, who is white, told The Sacramento Bee. “That’s my base. We’re the eighth largest black population (as a percentage) in the United States in my state. That’s how I got started.”

Those remarks came in response to a question about the all-white debate stage, a disappointment to many Democratic voters and activists who were energized by the diversity of the field at the outset of the campaign.

“I think there’s some really qualified people, but it’s the way, you know, the way the polls are running, the way things are moving,” Mr. Biden said. “I’m not sure this whole debate setup has made any sense anyway to begin with. But it is what it is. But I tell you what: If I’m elected president, I promise you my administration is going to look like America.”

The debate comes a day after Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey, dropped out of the race, leaving just one black person — Deval Patrick, the former governor of Massachusetts — in the Democratic contest.

Polls do show Mr. Biden with a commanding lead among African-American voters over all, though the contest for younger black voters, as well as for Latino voters, is far more competitive, and Mr. Sanders in particular has shown strength with those constituencies.

Ms. Warren’s top aides and her new surrogate Julián Castro have been telegraphing a message of unity, promoting Ms. Warren as the candidate who can bridge the party’s progressive and moderate wings.

That’ll be hard if she’s stoking a war with Mr. Sanders.

Ms. Warren is going to try anyway, having already adopted most of Mr. Sanders’s platform without some of his harder edges. She’s sure to be asked about reports in recent days that Sanders volunteers disparaged her election chances in calls to Iowa Democrats and the report, followed by her confirmation, that Mr. Sanders told her a woman could not be elected president.

There’s little evidence that Sanders supporters can be moved away from the Vermont senator, but it is incumbent upon Ms. Warren to demonstrate to moderate and undecided Iowans that she can appeal to all elements of the party and, as she often says in her remarks, win Republican votes for proposals like her wealth tax.

As the House moves to send impeachment charges against Mr. Trump to the Senate for a trial, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren will soon be spending far more time in Washington than in Iowa.

The debate offers one of their best, last chances to make a big, televised impression from Iowa before the caucuses. Can they effectively take advantage of that opening?

Ms. Warren, who has a renowned campaign organization on the ground, and Mr. Sanders, who has a loyal fan base in Iowa, have some more cushioning — but both of them are locked in a tight race among a crowded top-four tier. They’ll both be looking for a defining performance that will stay with undecided voters in Iowa while they are off the trail.

Mr. Biden and Mr. Buttigieg, the other two leading candidates in Iowa, who are competing with each other and Ms. Klobuchar for more centrist voters, will be free to campaign while their rivals are in Washington, and their supporters are eager to take advantage.

Hours before Tuesday’s debate, Ms. Warren released a plan to cancel student debt by executive action.

She argues that existing laws give the Education Department the authority to cancel federal loans as well as to issue them, and that as a result, she can direct the department to do so without congressional approval.

Essentially, she is proposing a more aggressive way of carrying out the student debt plan she released months ago, which would cancel up to $50,000 in debt for about 95 percent of borrowers.

She said she would instruct her education secretary to begin canceling debt on her first day in office, and “to amend any regulations or policy positions necessary to get there.” She said she had consulted with experts on the legality of her proposal, and attached a letter from lawyers at Harvard Law School’s Legal Services Center that bolstered her case.

The proposal “will require clearing a lot of red tape,” Ms. Warren wrote. “But let’s be clear: Our government has cleared far bigger hurdles to meet the needs of big businesses when they came looking for bailouts, tax giveaways and other concessions.”

Coming off two strong debate performances and her strongest fund-raising quarter to date, Ms. Klobuchar expected an Iowa surge in the closing weeks before the Feb. 3 caucuses.

That hasn’t happened yet, and polls show she remains well below the viability threshold to capture delegates from Iowa.

One clear sign she’s not a factor: Nobody is attacking her. Other campaigns, which aren’t struggling for attention as Ms. Klobuchar often does, aren’t worried about her and are openly plotting at how to recruit her supporters on caucus night should she fail to reach the viability threshold.

Yet Iowa has a long history of late-charging surprise candidates. Just ask John Kerry in 2004 and Rick Santorum in 2012, who both rocketed from single-digit polling to win the state. For Ms. Klobuchar, time is running short, and Tuesday may be her last shot to make a case for herself.

Mr. Patrick, the only black candidate remaining in the presidential race, is not be participating in Tuesday’s debate, and he is not taking his exclusion quietly.

“Tonight, six candidates will take the debate stage, all remarkable public servants,” Mr. Patrick, a former governor of Massachusetts, said in a statement. “Yet tonight America will not see herself in full.”

He was referring to the all-white debate line-up. As the Democratic field has been winnowed, the candidates on the stage no longer reflect a racial or ethnic cross-section of America.

Since December, three candidates of color have withdrawn — Senator Kamala Harris of California, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and Julián Castro of Texas, the former housing secretary.

Two other nonwhite candidates, the tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, remain in the race but did not qualify to participate tonight under debate rules.

Alongside CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Abby Phillip, tonight’s debate moderators include Brianne Pfannenstiel, the newest chief politics reporter for The Des Moines Register. This is a unique job in journalism: Ms. Pfannenstiel covers a local contest with national implications (the Iowa caucuses), giving her unparalleled power for a reporter at a regional newspaper.

As a New York Times profile of her described, she and the paper are regularly sought out by campaigns to get their messages across to the only voters who matter right now.

She said she has a “dream job,” one where she feels she has a tangible impact. “I’m not just sending something out into the abyss,” she said. “People here in Iowa are actually going to caucus, and so what you write informs how they think about the candidates and the policies and issues, and it’s all real for them.”

She added, “It’s easy in political journalism to get caught up in the idea that it’s a game show or it’s all strategy, but getting to be the politics reporter for The Des Moines Register means that it’s all real.”

Between impeachment hearings, football playoffs and the holidays, TV audiences for that other national story line — the Democratic presidential primary — have been dwindling.

Candidates and cable television producers are hoping that tonight’s matchup in Iowa can reverse the trend.

Last month, 6.17 million people watched the Democratic debate on PBS — a 66 percent decline from the 18.1 million Americans who tuned in for the second night of primary debates in June. The December event was easily the smallest live audience for a presidential debate in 2019.

But Tuesday’s event, sponsored by CNN and The Des Moines Register, is shaping up as must-see-TV.

Only six candidates will appear, the fewest this election cycle, which is good news for Democratic voters who have complained about unwieldy debates featuring up to a dozen candidates.

The Democratic Party is promising a two-hour-long debate on Tuesday, including opening statements, a tighter schedule than past debates.

To prepare, an army of CNN producers has spent 10 days transforming Sheslow Auditorium, an intimate opera house on the campus of Drake University, into a futuristic soundstage.

The building’s stained-glass windows will be integrated into the broadcast. Seventeen cameras, and about 5,000 feet of lighting and power cable, were required for the production.

“It’ll be interesting to see if the candidates feel closer to the audience and if that makes them open up a little more,” Mark Preston, CNN’s vice president of political events, told The Register. “Perhaps it will.”

To close out the debate last month, Mr. Yang struck a self-aware note: “I know what you’re thinking, America,” he remarked. “How am I still on this stage with them?”

As it turns out, Mr. Yang will not be on the debate stage in Iowa on Tuesday night. After earning a spot in the first six Democratic debates, Mr. Yang failed to qualify for this one because he did not receive 5 percent support in enough qualifying polls.

Mr. Yang has urged the Democratic National Committee to commission more polls. And his campaign, emboldened by a high-profile poll of Iowa caucusgoers that was released on Friday, has sharpened its criticism of the D.N.C., arguing that if it had done its “due diligence,” Mr. Yang “would certainly be on the debate stage.”

Mr. Yang himself weighed in on Twitter on Monday: “I want us to be on that stage,” he wrote. “I think we earned it.”

The airwaves in Iowa’s four main media markets are growing increasingly crowded. Over the past week, 42 different political ads have aired in the state, $2.5 million worth of political advertising time.

Most of the ads reflect candidates’ central arguments. Senator Elizabeth Warren has spent more than $190,000 reminding voters that she doesn’t take money from big donors, and therefore wouldn’t sell administration jobs like “cushy ambassadorships.”

But in the past 24 hours, candidates have begun using more creative messages, trying to break through a very fluid field in Iowa and going beyond staid biographical ads.

On Monday, Mr. Sanders began airing an ad that featured a clip of John F. Kennedy describing the motivation behind going to the moon, then quickly transitioned to the voice of Mr. Sanders pitching his liberal platform as equally ambitious and achievable as landing on the moon.

And Tom Steyer, the self-funding billionaire who tops the Iowa spending charts with $12.5 million in the state, took aim at Mr. Trump’s wealth in a new 60-second ad that began airing on Tuesday. In the ad, which was surely designed to try to elicit a rebuke from the president, Mr. Steyer says he’s an “actual billionaire” while Mr. Trump is a “fake billionaire.”

Though Michael R. Bloomberg is airing ads nationally on CNN, there will be no political ads tonight during the commercial breaks airing nationally, as the cable network has refused to air a political ad during the debate, though a campaign could still buy in a local cable market that is out of CNN’s control.

Biden aide rejects Sanders’ foreign policy slam, says voters will side with Joe’s record

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132235221810120000 Biden aide rejects Sanders' foreign policy slam, says voters will side with Joe's record fox news fnc/media fnc fe8f96c9-b1d8-552b-ad91-7f36a07c5aef Charles Creitz article

A top campaign aide to former Vice President Joe Biden rejected a broadside from rival Bernie Sanders, who had criticized the former Delaware senator’s foreign policy record.

Biden Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield told Martha MacCallum on Tuesday’s “The Story” that her boss has repeatedly addressed his vote in favor of the Iraq War.

SANDERS UNLEASHES ON BIDEN OVER MIDEAST RECORD

“He said he regretted his decision to vote to give George W. Bush the authority to send inspectors into Iraq because [Bush] abused that power to go to war,” she said. “The vice president has been very clear about that.”

“I think voters would stack the totality of Joe Biden’s record on foreign policy up against Bernie Sanders’ any day,” Bedingfield added.

Bedingfield noted that Biden has been in the White House Situation Room during important decisions and has a Senate record that favors nuclear nonproliferation and moderate foreign policy.

The 77-year-old was key in negotiating the Paris Climate Accord and the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, she added.

Bedingfield said Biden should give voters a reassuring feeling as a presidential candidate at a time when Americans are “very afraid” of how President Trump is comporting himself internationally.

Sanders has used his attacks on Biden to highlight how his anti-war credentials differ from the former vice president‘s record.

“Joe Biden voted and helped lead the effort for the war in Iraq, the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said in a recent interview on CNN.

During a recent New Hampshire campaign stop, Biden appeared to echo Bedingfield’s remarks, stressing that he would “put my foreign policy experience against anyone in the country right now.”

Last week, Biden said that the president had planted “the seeds of danger” when he discarded the Iran deal, describing it as “the day [Trump] turned his back on our closest European allies.”
