Amy Klobuchar’s Caucus-Day in Iowa Visit Pays Off

JOHNSTON, Iowa — For weeks undecided Iowans have been saying that they may make their decision based on the last candidate they see in person. On Monday night, that sentiment paid off for Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota at Johnston Middle School.

The senator was a surprise guest at the Johnston 2 precinct, popping in just after the caucus began to make one final pitch to the more than 350 attendees.

“The most important thing is that we win in the general election,” she said, adding that if she was the nominee, the party would rebuild the “blue wall” that President Trump had cracked in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in 2016. “We’ll make Donald Trump pay for it,” she added.

While the final results were unclear, there was no shortage of drama inside the middle school gymnasium, where each of the campaigns staked out room on the yellow bleachers. A handful of undecided Democrats were swarmed by the precinct captains of the most competitive campaigns, who were charged with lobbying people to back their candidate.

Ms. Klobuchar came here because Johnston is a Des Moines suburb that flipped from Republican to Democratic in 2018. It is filled with the sort of moderate Democrats and Republicans she is banking on to support her. Joseph R. Biden Jr., the former vice president, was also counting on support from those same Democrats, but the results of the first alignment were disappointing for him.

“I wish there was a way to tell who is undecided,” said Gregory Davis, a retired Lutheran minister who served as Ms. Klobuchar’s precinct captain.

As caucusgoers trickled in, the most organized campaigns scurried to track who was showing up. Rhonda Gooding and Lara McAdams, the precinct captains for Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., combed through their lists and called supporters who they had not seen.

Over in the section reserved for Biden supporters, the precinct captain Penny Schempp began to get nervous. She had far less than 15 percent of the room, meaning that without an infusion of Biden supporters he would not reach viability — forcing his group to make their second choice.

As Ms. Schempp fretted, a supporter of Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur, came by to lobby her to switch to the rookie candidate.

The Iowa result is far more about momentum than it is about delegates. Buttigieg is giving himself a boost until the real totals are tabulated.

“I just need to have someone with experience in government,” Ms. Schempp said. The Yang supporter replied that Mr. Biden was responsible for the impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump.

“He shouldn’t have gotten his son that job for $50,000 per month,” the Yang supporter, who declined to give her name, added. But her argument fell flat.

The first alignment results were indeed bad for Mr. Biden here. With 37 supporters, he fell far short of the 54 caucusgoers required to reach the 15 percent threshold.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the first alignment with 76 supporters, followed by Ms. Klobuchar with 75. Mr. Buttigieg had 70 and Ms. Warren 59.

Mr. Yang, who had 33, and the billionaire Tom Steyer and Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who had four each, also failed to reach viability.

Then came the realignment, a frenetic 15-minute period that saw the viable candidates’ supporters swarm like vultures into the sections reserved for Biden and Yang supporters.

But not everybody picked a second choice. About half of the Yang group walked out. Some Biden backers did, too.

Melanie Weatherall, a 50-year-old nurse who wore a blue sequined dress with BIDEN in sparkly letters across the back, refused to realign to another candidate when he was not viable.

“Nobody else can beat Trump,” she said. “They said we should go to Amy, but what is the point? They’re going to mess it up when they can’t beat Trump.”

In the end, Ms. Klobuchar picked up the vast majority of Biden supporters here — adding 31 to her total in the realignment. Her new supporters included Ms. Schempp, the Biden precinct captain, and Greg McCabe, a 76-year-old retiree who said Ms. Klobuchar was his second choice all along.

“I like Amy’s integrity,” he said. “I only backed Biden because I thought he would be better at foreign relations.”

Ms. Klobuchar’s 106 supporters were more than enough to win the precinct. Mr. Sanders, who had the most after the first alignment, placed second with 83, followed by Mr. Buttigieg with 81 and Ms. Warren, who did not win any new supporters in the realignment. She finished with 59.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid would accept White House invitation, calls it ‘quite an honor’

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid says he plans to celebrate his recent Super Bowl win with a trip to the White House should President Trump extend an invitation.

He spoke to reporters after the Chiefs victory on Sunday night, adding he “hadn’t even thought” about the visit.

“I mean, I’ll be there,” Reid said. “I’ll be there. If they’re inviting us, I’ll be there. It’s quite an honor, I think.”

PATRICK MAHOMES LEADS CHIEFS TO COMEBACK VICTORY OVER 49ERS IN SUPER BOWL LIV

On Sunday, Reid captured his first Super Bowl victory in his 21st season as an NFL head coach, setting an NFL record for most wins [222] before his first championship. He was the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1999 to 2012, losing to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl back in 2005.

His first win in the big game was also the first Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in 50 years.

The team’s four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, Tyreek Hill — one of the fastest players in the NFL — also said he would make a trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

“That would be great to go to the White House,” Hill said, according to the Kansas City Star. “I’ve never been to D.C., so that would be great.”

The LSU Tigers were the last time to visit the White House and be honored by the commander in chief after they defeated the Clemson Tigers 42-25 to win the college football National Championship back in January.

“Your football program has inspired countless fans across the country,” Trump told the team during the visit.

White House visits have become scarce in recent years under Trump, with players from the Patriots and Eagles skipping visits.

Waiting Years for This Night, Then Hours for an Iowa Winner

DES MOINES — Every four years since the 1970s, the political gods have smiled upon Iowa, endowing its residents with uncommon power to set the course of national politics as the first nominating contest.

For that privilege, Iowa has found itself — more this year than ever — in the position of defending its perch. Why should a state so disproportionately white take such a leading role, especially for a Democratic Party that prides itself on its diversity? Why is a hodgepodge of gatherings in school gymnasiums the pinnacle of American democracy?

On Monday evening, as the byzantine system left results unreported well after state Democrats had predicted being able to lend some clarity, Iowa’s precarious standing appeared to take another hit.

“The integrity of the results is paramount,” Mandy McClure, a spokeswoman for the Iowa Democratic Party, said in an initial statement as the wait persisted. “We have experienced a delay in the results due to quality checks and the fact that the I.D.P. is reporting out three data sets for the first time.”

Later, she added that the party had “found inconsistencies” in the reporting of results. “This is not a hack or an intrusion,” Ms. McClure said. “The underlying data and paper trail is sound and will simply take time to further report the results.”

For a party that had worked for three years and three months to begin the process of trying to defeat President Trump, the caucus stumble seemed to register as another reason for angst in a season with many — another surreal turn in a political moment defined by them.

All year, Iowa Democrats had grown consumed with identifying the candidate best positioned to counter Mr. Trump this fall. They filled creaky school auditoriums and union halls and overstuffed coffee shops to weigh and measure a roster of contenders that exceeded 20 at its peak.

Progressive or moderate? Veteran statesman or relative newcomer? Options abounded.

Late Monday night, at least, the state’s verdict remained sealed.

The state party changed its rules for this year to accommodate concerns that the caucus process was not transparent. Instead of reporting just one number at the end of the night, it would report, on a rolling basis, three numbers per precinct — a delegate count and the amount of support in both the first and second rounds. But instead of making things clearer, the new process seemed only to muddle matters early in the night.

With no hard results to reckon with, several candidates were liberated to give the cheeriest version of their stump speech, hustling to the stage before any math could dampen the mood.

The party is attempting to verify results reported on the app by getting smartphone pictures of the paper worksheets at each precinct site.

“We’re going to walk out of here with our share of delegates,” former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told supporters. “We feel good about where we are.”

The caucuses, like so much else these last three years, were proceeding in the outsize shadow of executive chaos in Washington — an impeachment trial that at once consumed valuable news media oxygen ordinarily afforded to the presidential election and temporarily removed several candidates from the campaign trail altogether. The coming days, which are expected to include a State of the Union address and an acquittal for Mr. Trump in the Senate, should only be of a piece.

Yet despite the recent competition for attention, perhaps no one has felt the burden of the primary calendar more than the Iowa caucusgoer, charged with setting Democrats on a path toward victory in November against a president viewed by the party as a singular threat. For some Iowans, the pressure proved paralyzing, freezing them in indecision. In interviews for months leading up to the caucuses, many struggled to reconcile the candidate they liked with the candidate they thought others would like — neighbors, family members, friends in other states.

Many were also cognizant that a murky result would weaken Iowa’s claim that it acts as a springboard to the nomination. And now, with Monday evening unfolding unevenly, they know it is likely the rest of the country could inherit their anxiety, too.

If Iowa did not supply answers on the timeline it usually does, the pre-primary campaign of the past year had already set the direction of the 2020 contest in lasting ways. After a midterm triumph premised often on the success of female and nonwhite candidates, the remaining roster of top contenders is older, whiter and more male-dominated than many Democrats had initially hoped, with front-runners like Senator Bernie Sanders and Mr. Biden.

“Voters are just so terrified of Donald Trump being re-elected that they are bending over backwards to avoid anything that looks or feels like 2016,” said Meredith Kelly, a top aide to the failed 2020 presidential campaign of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. “And one very obvious factor was that a woman ultimately lost to Donald Trump.”

In her own bid, Senator Elizabeth Warren has appeared perpetually mindful of this mental hurdle for many voters, presenting herself as the candidate of “unity” and urging Iowans not to fear voting with their hearts.

“I am not afraid,” she said last year, setting off on a riff she would repeat often, “and for Democrats to win, you can’t be afraid, either.”

If nothing else, Ms. Warren and Mr. Sanders have often succeeded in focusing the primary on the merits of progressive policy. With Mr. Biden and Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., emphasizing a more consensus-minded pragmatism, the senators have argued for vast economic upheaval and turned a debate over a “Medicare for all” health-care system into the campaign’s most substantive running dialogue.

Warren supporters chanted the tagline of her wealth tax (“two cents!”) as if requesting a song at a concert. Sanders fans nodded with purpose through his signature swipes at the billionaire class — particularly after two of its members, Michael R. Bloomberg and Tom Steyer, joined the race.

The campaign of Mr. Bloomberg, who is not contesting the early states, spent the day merrily sending out news releases about contests scheduled for March or later, when his functionally bottomless resources are expected to sustain his bid. But despite Mr. Bloomberg’s recent climb in some national polls, progressives insist they have tapped into a zeal that cannot be purchased.

“The grass-roots energy is clearly in the progressive wing of the coalition,” said Maurice Mitchell, the national director of the Working Families Party, which endorsed Ms. Warren. “Primaries are absolutely the place where you vote your heart, and you vote your values.”

At the same time, there can be only one nominee. And as the nomination battle heads to New Hampshire and beyond, Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren will be fighting for progressive supremacy, with both hoping to establish themselves as the left’s liberal standard-bearer.

For a year, the two smothered each other in praise, pulling back if any remark was construed as an attack. On the debate stage, they presented a unified front against the moderate candidates flanking them. But last month, their carefully cultivated unity ruptured after reports that Mr. Sanders had told Ms. Warren privately in 2018 that a woman could not win the presidency. He has denied saying this.

Of perhaps greater concern to many Democrats is the incessant rehashing of 2016 slights, with supporters of Mr. Sanders and Hillary Clinton — who recently insisted that “nobody likes” the man she bested in the primary four years ago — squabbling anew in the days before the caucus.

Last week, a top Sanders surrogate, Representative Rashida Tlaib, joined a crowd of Iowans in booing at the mention of Mrs. Clinton, who remains to many Sanders supporters an avatar of corporate centrism.

“The haters,” Ms. Tlaib vowed, “will shut up on Monday when we win.”

Ms. Tlaib apologized afterward for the booing — an episode that reminded Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ms. Tlaib’s congressional ally, about a regret of her own.

“If I could have one wish,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview, “I should have asked Santa to never have us relitigate 2016 ever again.”

Jeffrey Epstein estate worth $57M more than a previous estimate: report

Jeffrey Epstein’s estate is worth over $57 million more than a previous estimate and it’s made over $1 million by selling off some assets including a Bentley worth almost $200,000, according to new court documents filed in the Virgin Islands.

A new estimate values the dead financier’s worth at over $634 million, according to court papers filed in Virgin Islands Superior Court by lawyers of the estate.

Epstein’s estate was originally estimated to be valued at over $577 million around the time of his death, according to documents released with his will at the time.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN PRISON GUARD’S LAWYER ‘HIGHLY LIKELY’ TO SEEK DISMISSAL OF CLIENT’S CHARGES

The estate has made $1 million since then in part after five of his cars were sold off including, a 2018 Bentley worth $195,000, a 2019 Mercedes worth $133,200 and three Chevrolet Suburbans worth $112,000 combined, the court papers say.

The estate also liquidated four bank accounts associated with some of his companies that held over $500,000 in cash, according to the court documents.

The new figures, laid out in a quarterly accounting document, don’t include the value of his art collection, his jewelry, watches and his shares in a company which are all still pending appraisal.

A large part of the increase appears to be because new estimates of his worth at the time of his death are higher than originally thought, while a small increase appears to be due to his estate increasing in value as of the end of 2019, according to the court papers.

New papers were also filed in the probate case in the Virgin Islands by some of Epstein’s victims and the estate lawyers who worry that the Virgin Island Attorney General Denise George’s recent lawsuit against the estate could jeopardize their claims and the establishment of a victim compensation fund since George opposed the fund.

PRINCE ANDREW ‘DID IDIOTIC THINGS’ BUT ‘HE’S NOT A PEDOPHILE’ DESPITE JEFFREY EPSTEIN TIES, ROYAL COUSIN SAYS

Sean Foster, a lawyer for five sexual assault victims who have sued Epstein’s estate, said in court papers that his clients joining the case, “is the only vehicle available to assure that these victims of Jeffrey Epstein will not suffer detrimental harm by the intervention and objection asserted by the Government.”

Lawyers with the estate said, in court filings, that granting George’s motion “to torpedo” the victims’ fund — called the Voluntary Claims Resolution Program — “will unfortunately accomplish only one thing: it will divest scores of women of their ability to engage in a voluntary, confidential and non-adversarial alternative to litigation to resolve their claims of sexual abuse by Mr. Epstein.”

Top Antitrust Official Is Said to Recuse Himself From Google Inquiry

Westlake Legal Group 03dojgoogle-1-facebookJumbo Top Antitrust Official Is Said to Recuse Himself From Google Inquiry United States Politics and Government Lobbying and Lobbyists Justice Department Google Inc Ethics and Official Misconduct DoubleClick Inc Delrahim, Makan Conflicts of Interest Computers and the Internet Antitrust Laws and Competition Issues

WASHINGTON — Makan Delrahim, the head of the antitrust division at the Department of Justice, has recused himself from investigating Google, even as the agency’s examination of the largest tech companies ramps up.

Mr. Delrahim, 50, recently removed himself from looking into allegations of anticompetitive practices at Google because of a potential conflict of interest related to his past work for the internet search company, two people with knowledge of the decision said.

In 2007, Mr. Delrahim, who was in private law practice at the time, had a contract to lobby for Google’s acquisition of the ad-technology company DoubleClick, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the details are confidential.

“As the technology review progressed, Assistant Attorney General Makan Delrahim revisited potential conflicts with previous work with the Department of Justice’s ethics office,” said a Justice Department spokesman. “He and the ethics office have decided that he should now recuse himself from a matter within the tech review in an abundance of caution.”

Mr. Delrahim is recusing himself as the Justice Department has embarked on the most high-profile antitrust investigations of technology companies in years. The agency opened investigations into Google, Amazon and Facebook last summer as questions over the dominance of the tech giants increased. The Justice Department has since called in dozens of rivals across media, retail and tech to gather evidence of anticompetitive business practices by the tech companies.

The Federal Trade Commission and dozens of state attorneys general have also started antitrust investigations into Facebook, Amazon and Google. A congressional committee has also opened a similar investigation into big tech companies.

It was unclear why Mr. Delrahim’s recusal was taking place now, given that the Justice Department’s investigation into Google has been in process for months.

But he has faced increased criticism for potential conflicts of interest. Last year, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, said Mr. Delrahim should recuse himself from tech investigations because of his history of consulting for Google and Apple while he was an attorney last decade.

Calling his lobbying work for Google and Apple “extensive and lucrative,” Ms. Warren said in a letter to Mr. Delrahim last June that “any reasonable person would surely question your impartiality in antitrust matters involving Google.”

In December, text messages between Mr. Delrahim and the top executives involved in a blockbuster wireless merger of T-Mobile and Sprint emerged in court after state attorneys general had challenged the deal. In the text messages, Mr. Delrahim appeared to facilitate negotiations between the companies and to help the deal get approved by the Federal Communications Commission.

Mr. Delrahim’s recusal raises questions about the Justice Department’s oversight of the Google investigation. In a statement, the agency said Ryan Shores, an associate deputy attorney general, and Alex Okuliar, a deputy assistant attorney general who joined the Justice Department last week, would oversee the tech review.

The tech investigations have drawn unusual interest from Attorney General William P. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen. Mr. Barr, a former official for Verizon, and Mr. Rosen, a former antitrust attorney, have given public speeches on their concerns about the power of big tech firms and their interest in examining whether the companies have broken antitrust laws.

Mr. Delrahim has been a divisive figure in antitrust circles. He opposed the merger of AT&T with Time Warner in November 2017 but the deal eventually went ahead. Months later, he approved the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint.

Jeffrey Epstein estate worth $57M more than a previous estimate: report

Jeffrey Epstein’s estate is worth over $57 million more than a previous estimate and it’s made over $1 million by selling off some assets including a Bentley worth almost $200,000, according to new court documents filed in the Virgin Islands.

A new estimate values the dead financier’s worth at over $634 million, according to court papers filed in Virgin Islands Superior Court by lawyers of the estate.

Epstein’s estate was originally estimated to be valued at over $577 million around the time of his death, according to documents released with his will at the time.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN PRISON GUARD’S LAWYER ‘HIGHLY LIKELY’ TO SEEK DISMISSAL OF CLIENT’S CHARGES

The estate has made $1 million since then in part after five of his cars were sold off including, a 2018 Bentley worth $195,000, a 2019 Mercedes worth $133,200 and three Chevrolet Suburbans worth $112,000 combined, the court papers say.

The estate also liquidated four bank accounts associated with some of his companies that held over $500,000 in cash, according to the court documents.

The new figures, laid out in a quarterly accounting document, don’t include the value of his art collection, his jewelry, watches and his shares in a company which are all still pending appraisal.

A large part of the increase appears to be because new estimates of his worth at the time of his death are higher than originally thought, while a small increase appears to be due to his estate increasing in value as of the end of 2019, according to the court papers.

New papers were also filed in the probate case in the Virgin Islands by some of Epstein’s victims and the estate lawyers who worry that the Virgin Island Attorney General Denise George’s recent lawsuit against the estate could jeopardize their claims and the establishment of a victim compensation fund since George opposed the fund.

PRINCE ANDREW ‘DID IDIOTIC THINGS’ BUT ‘HE’S NOT A PEDOPHILE’ DESPITE JEFFREY EPSTEIN TIES, ROYAL COUSIN SAYS

Sean Foster, a lawyer for five sexual assault victims who have sued Epstein’s estate, said in court papers that his clients joining the case, “is the only vehicle available to assure that these victims of Jeffrey Epstein will not suffer detrimental harm by the intervention and objection asserted by the Government.”

Lawyers with the estate said, in court filings, that granting George’s motion “to torpedo” the victims’ fund — called the Voluntary Claims Resolution Program — “will unfortunately accomplish only one thing: it will divest scores of women of their ability to engage in a voluntary, confidential and non-adversarial alternative to litigation to resolve their claims of sexual abuse by Mr. Epstein.”

Trump says CNN’s Don Lemon is ‘not a smart person’ after controversial segment, calls laugh ‘phony’

Westlake Legal Group Lemon-Trump-AP2 Trump says CNN's Don Lemon is 'not a smart person' after controversial segment, calls laugh 'phony' Victor Garcia Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 6c52b398-a67b-5b7e-80ab-08f688658f93

President Trump has reacted to a recent viral clip of CNN anchor Don Lemon and his panel mocking the president and his supporters, calling the anchor’s laugh “phony.”

“So I watched this guy, he’s a terrible … he’s not a smart person, at all. But I watch that phony laugh. That wasn’t a laugh. He was trying to act, puts his head down, always laughing so hard,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity as part of an exclusive interview conducted just before the Super Bowl,y. “There’s nothing funny about what was said.”

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

The panel, which originally aired Jan. 25, featured Lemon, New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Wajahat Ali, and ex-GOP strategist Rick Wilson discussing the heated exchange between Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an NPR reporter, in which Pompeo allegedly challenged the journalist to point out Ukraine on a blank map.

Wilson used the topic to mock President Trump as well as his supporters.

“[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,” Wilson began, causing Lemon to chuckle. “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.”

As Lemon began crying with tears of laughter, Wilson went on to depict what he thought a typical Trump supporter sounded like.

“‘Donald Trump’s the smart one — and y’all elitists are dumb!'” Wilson said with a heavy southern accent.

“‘You elitists with your geography and your maps- and your spelling!'” Ali chimed in during the mockery.

“That was good,” Lemon said, laughing so hard he nearly lost his breath. “That was a good one. I needed that.”

Conservatives criticized the segment and the Republican National Committee used clips of the segment in a fundraising ad.

Lemon addressed the issue this past 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,” Lemon said.

Trump and Michael Bloomberg square off in Super Bowl commercials

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Bloomberg_AP Trump and Michael Bloomberg square off in Super Bowl commercials fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/super-bowl fox news fnc/politics fnc David Aaro article 91973545-2d57-5fbf-bae6-4a087a4ce890

President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg ran dueling commercials on Super Bowl Sunday, spending roughly $10 million for 60 seconds of airtime.

Trump’s response on Sunday comes as Bloomberg, a billionaire, has spent roughly $300 million on ads, running twice as many than Trump’s entire 2016 campaign, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The first of two 30-second ads by Trump featured Alice Marie Johnson — a nonviolent drug offender commuted by the president with the help of Kim Kardashian. The emotional ad showed her being reunited with her family and thanking Trump.

TRUMP, IN SUPER BOWL INTERVIEW WITH SEAN HANNITY, PREDICTS FALL OF PELOSI: ‘RADICAL LEFT IS GONNA TAKE OVER’

“My heart is just bursting with gratitude,” Johnson says in the commercial. “I want to thank President Donald John Trump. Hallelujah!”

Trump’s second commercial focused on his record and the booming economy.

Bloomberg responded with longer, but still emotional ad on gun violence, which showed Calandrian Kemp, a mother from Texas who lost her son, George Kemp Jr., from a fatal gunshot wound. He was an NFL hopeful and died at 20-years-old.

“Lives are being lost every day,” Kemp says in the commercial. “It is a national crisis.”

Text later appears on the screen saying “Mike [Bloomberg] started a national gun safety movement that’s changing laws and saving lives.”

SEAN HANNITY PREVIEWS PRESIDENT TRUMP SUPER BOWL INTERVIEW

During a pre-Super Bowl interview on Fox News, Trump fired shots at the presidential candidate, appearing to taunt him for his 5-foot-eight stature.

“It’s OK, there’s nothing wrong — you can be short,” Trump told Sean Hannity. “Why should he get a box to stand on?”

Bloomberg responded to his comments, saying that Trump “lies.”

“I stand twice as tall as he does on the stage — the stage that matters,” Bloomberg said, according to the paper. “I think Donald Trump knows that I can beat him, and that’s why he comes back with those kinds of comments.”

Sean Hannity said Monday the idea of a Bernie Sanders victory in the Iowa caucuses has establishment Democrats in a state of panic.

“The Democratic primary is shaping up to be yet another dumpster fire like it was in 2016,” Hannity said. ” Socialist Bernie Sanders has surged into the lead and the Democratic establishment is in a state of shock and panic.”

The “Hannity” host accused Democrats of “rigging” the system to avoid the spectacle of Sanders accepting the party’s nomination for president..

“[In] 2016 Democrats, well, they did their best to rig the primary against Bernie Sanders … DNC [interim] chair Donna Brazile discovered that the Clinton campaign and the DNC had in fact been working together to defeat Bernie throughout the primary. In other words, the system was rigged.”

“Now,” he continued, “history seems to be repeating itself. The DNC is changing the rules so that one of Bernie’s top challengers — maybe [Michael] Bloomberg or whoever else, can take the debate stage without meeting requirements.”

Hannity called Sanders’ policies “downright scary,” and reiterated his message to viewers who will “render the ultimate verdict” come November.

“Whatever happens in Iowa,” he said, “in 274 days, you, the American people, you will render what is the ultimate verdict.”

“President Trump will be acquitted [by the Senate] on Wednesday and the latest impeachment witch hunt will be dead. The power to decide our future now rests squarely in your hands. You can, in 274 days, shock the world again.”
