AOC, Trump join list of celebs and social media stars as ‘most influential people on the internet’

Westlake Legal Group Ocasio-Trump AOC, Trump join list of celebs and social media stars as 'most influential people on the internet' Sam Dorman fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/tech fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/tech fnc article 23cdb4c3-3b24-54d3-ab40-8b13ba214b00

While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Trump differ vastly in their political views, a new ranking highlights some common ground between the two.

According to TIME magazine, both are incredibly effective at influencing people on the internet. The two joined a slew of celebrities — including singer Ariana Grande and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex  — on the publication’s list of the “25 Most Influential People on the Internet.”

Other top influencers included conservative author Ben Shapiro, rapper Cardi B, and the Hong Kong protesters.

The list came just as President Trump and Ocasio-Cortez traded barbs on Twitter in what was perhaps their most heated and direct exchange to date. Trump’s online comments about Ocasio-Cortez and other freshman congresswoman ignited a media firestorm involving the most powerful members of Congress.

The incident provoked a speech from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Tuesday when she called on her Republican colleagues to denounce the president’s “racist” tweet about Ocasio-Cortez and others.

Earlier in July, Pelosi downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s influence by comparing her substantial Twitter following to the few votes she was able to get in opposing a bipartisan border funding package.

On Tuesday, both Trump and Ocasio-Cortez continued battling via Twitter as the latter accused him of being a racist and the former charged progressive lawmakers with hating the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez also sparked a prolonged debate about Holocaust references when she used Instagram to accuse immigration enforcement of housing migrants in “concentration camps.”

Trump has long used Twitter as his proverbial bully pulpit, directly attacking Democrats and even using the platform to break news about changes in his administration. As the president struggled to obtain funding for border wall funding, he continually blasted Democrats on Twitter for what he saw as inaction on immigration reform.

Trump’s border wall got a boost from Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, also on the list, who used the internet to crowdfund money for a southern border wall.

Vox writer Carlos Maza, another controversial figure in the Twittersphere, also made the list.

Bret Baier: Censure vote against Trump a ‘campaign commercial in the making’ for House Democrats

Westlake Legal Group Pelosi-BB-hetty Bret Baier: Censure vote against Trump a 'campaign commercial in the making' for House Democrats Nick Givas fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc f995bb2c-04ca-5f3e-846d-ef10f0d2bc77 article

Fox News’ Bret Baier said a possible censure vote in the House to condemn President Trump’s tweeting is a “campaign commercial in the making” for Democratic candidates running for reelection in 2020.

“All of these things — when these resolutions come up, it’s just a political maneuver so that the opponents can say that on this vote, so-and-so stood with what they’ll call ‘racist tweets. And it’s a campaign commercial in the making,'” Baier said on “The Daily Briefing” Tuesday.

“The same thing happened, actually, with the resolution to condemn the words of Ilhan Omar that got watered down in the House of Representatives.” he continued.

Baier was referring to Trump’s war of words on Twitter Sunday with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and four of her freshman members, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib D-Mich., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

FLOOR FIGHT ERUPTS AS PELOSI SPEAKS AHEAD OF VOTE TO CONDEMN TRUMP’S ‘RACIST’ COMMENTS

Pelosi faced immediate backlash on the House floor when she attempted to persuade Congress to condemn Trump’s comments, in the form of a rebuke from Rep. Doug Collins R-Ga, who asked that her comments be “taken down.”

“Can I ask the words be taken down? I make a point of order that the gentlewoman’s words are unparliamentary and be taken down,” Collins said.

He also commented on the general push for impeachment and said the four progressive Congresswomen have not produced anything tangible to charge the president with, other than bad taste.

“I think there is a significant push [for impeachment] that you heard the four congresswomen last night talk about,” he said. “[It’s] not based on the findings of the Mueller report, but based on [Trump’s] character and they say it’s high crimes and misdemeanors but they don’t outline what they are. I think there is a push from Rep. Al Green and others to get that started right away. And Nancy Pelosi, after dealing [with] what she dealt with, with the four congresswomen, kind of putting them in a box — now they’re all together and they’re defending those four congresswomen. And I wonder if it will bleed over to impeachment.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ CONTINUES TWITTER SPAT WITH TRUMP, LINKS GOP TO WHITE SUPREMACY

Baier also said the four women are playing into Trump’s hands as he attempts to brand the Democratic party as radical and extreme, ahead of the 2020 elections.

“The president, from the political point of view, really wants to have these four congresswomen be the face of the Democratic Party … He wants to see the Democrats rally around them and lift them up because of the controversial things that they’ve said do not sell well in a large part of the country,” he said.

“The way that he did that over the weekend with the tweets, obviously sent up alarm bells. Not only for Democrats but for some Republicans. And I think you’re seeing Mitch McConnell try and deal with that in his way, and I bet he’ll get peppered with questions about the president’s action since.”

Hannity: ‘The radicals are in charge’

Fox News’ Sean Hannity focused Monday night on the change within the Democratic Party, declaring once again that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is now the leader and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is “powerless.”

“They are on the verge of an all-out civil war. Nancy Pelosi has lost complete control of her radical socialist base. Freshman Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman Tlaib and Omar and Ayanna Pressley are now running the show,” Hannity said on his television show.

STIREWALT: HOW PELOSI IS TRYING TO ‘TRAP’ REPUBLICANS FOLLOWING TRUMP’S COMMENTS

“Speaker Pelosi is now totally powerless.”

Hannity was reacting to past comments made by the four congresswomen who responded to President Trump’s controversial tweets Sunday calling for the progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.

Trump doubled down Monday calling out the lawmakers for their Anti-American “hate.”

Hannity warned that “radicals” within the Democratic Party will use identity politics to attack any that oppose them including other Democrats to “reshape America.”

“It does not matter what Speaker Pelosi says, what she does. The radicals who are in charge, anyone who opposes them of course quickly labeled xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, sexist, and a bigot and want dirty air and water,” Hannity told his audience.

“The so-called ‘squad’ of far left freshmen congresswomen are now using identity politics even against members of their own party. The end goal is to fundamentally reshape America.”

The Fox News host also pointed out the influence this “wing” has on the Democratic presidential candidates.

“The base of the Democratic Party is so powerful that every 2020 hopeful has adopted their fringe socialist policies. And if they don’t adopt it completely they are trashed by many of the four,” Hannity said.

Hannity blasted the four congresswomen for calling for the impeachment of President Trump Monday during a press conference and for their vision of the country.

“They don’t want to improve this country. They want to remake this country into something we all know will fail,” Hannity said. “They want to impeach the one person that’s been standing in their way.”

Kellyanne Conway says critics employ Hatch Act to ‘silence’ her support for Trump

Westlake Legal Group Conway-Hannity_FOX Kellyanne Conway says critics employ Hatch Act to 'silence' her support for Trump fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3e1e0c93-1cec-5fcf-9e2a-52c37a49c0d7

Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway responded to critics Monday after formally defying a Hatch Act-related subpoena from the House Oversight Committee.

Her opponents are concerned about her effectiveness at her job and hoped to silence her, Conway said Monday on “Hannity.”

“I’m concerned that there’s such a weaponization and politicization of this thing called the Hatch Act,” she said.

The Hatch Act limits political activity by federal workers. Congress approved the Hatch Act in 1939 to limit partisan activity by federal employees to ensure the government functions fairly and effectively.

KELLYANNE CONWAY DEFIES HOUSE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE SUBPOENA OVER ALLEGED HATCH ACT VIOLATIONS

The Office of Special Counsel — separate from the office formerly run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller — opened two cases focused on allegations Conway violated the Hatch Act by engaging in “both official and political activity” — during her media appearances and on her Twitter account, @KellyannePolls.

The report stated, “Ms. Conway regularly participated in official media interviews in her capacity as a White House spokesperson to answer reporters’ questions about the Administration. Beginning in February 2019, Ms. Conway, during official media appearances, engaged in a pattern of partisan attacks on several Democratic Party candidates shortly after they announced their candidacy for President,” detailing instances involving Sens. Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

The OSC stated that in one Feb. 19 interview on “Fox & Friends,” Conway “insinuated that Senator Booker was ‘sexist’ and a ‘tinny’ ‘motivational speaker,’” and claimed Warren, D-Mass., was “’lying’” about her ethnicity.

Conway said that no matter how heavy the pressure is on her to keep a low profile, she will continue to publicly support the president’s policies.

“They’re not going to silence me,” she said. “They’re not going to take away my First Amendment rights.”

Conway also “attacked” O’Rourke for not “thinking the women running are good enough to be President.”

Karl Rove: Beto O’Rourke’s reparations push could exacerbate ‘racial divide’

Republican strategist Karl Rove ripped Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke‘s for his position on reparations and his revelation that he and his wife are descended from slave owners.

“I think it trivializes the issue. I mean … you feel only urgent about this because in the 1850s, 160 years ago, his forbears had two slaves. You know, you either feel that we ought to make reparations … for slavery because … you feel it’s necessary and a moral obligation, or not,” Rove said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” on Monday.

AS DEMOCRATS DEBATE REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY, POLLS SUGGEST AMERICANS ARE NOT CONVINCED

O’Rourke revealed on Twitter on Sunday that he and his wife, Amy, are both descended from slave owners.

The Democratic presidential hopeful also posted an article on Medium where he promised to continue to support reparations, “beginning with an important national conversation on slavery and racial injustice.”

Rove said: “There are just so many ways that this issue will simply cause greater racial division in this country and divide us more deeply. And I don’t think … Robert Francis O’Rourke’s approach to this helps at all.”

Peter Thiel tells Tucker Carlson which 2020 Dem has him ‘most scared’

Billionaire Silicon Valley investor Peter Thiel says there is one Democratic presidential candidate who makes him most concerned ahead of the 2020 elections.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is the only Democratic candidate campaigning on the economy, while others are mired in discussions about identity politics, Thiel said Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“I’m most scared by Elizabeth Warren,” he said.

“I think she’s the one who’s actually talking about the economy, which is the only thing that I think matters by far the most.”

Thiel, who addressed the 2016 Republican National Convention as its first openly gay speaker, also said he found the other nearly two dozen Democratic primary contenders uninspiring.

PETER THIEL SAYS FBI, CIA SHOULD INVESTIGATE IF CHINESE INTELLIGENCE INFILTRATED GOOGLE: REPORT

“I think almost all the others are equally unimpressive in the sense that it’s all identity politics of one flavor or another,” he said.

“I wouldn’t want to rank how unimpressive they are, since that would be forcing me to rank the different identities and which one’s more privileged and more special, and that would be a dangerous thing to get into.”

Earlier in the interview, Thiel discussed how he called Sunday for the FBI and CIA to investigate whether Chinese intelligence had infiltrated Google.

Thiel made the comments during a speech at the National Conservatism Conference in Washington. He said the FBI and CIA needed to ask Google three questions to determine if the tech giant had been compromised by Chinese intelligence.

Speaking to Carlson, Thiel said artificial intelligence is something, “people talk about nonstop in Silicon Valley.”

“But they almost never talk about its dual use,” he said.

“If it’s real, if this is a real thing, it obviously can also be used by the military, it’ll be weaponized in all sorts of ways, and it’s an important national security question as to who has it.

“There’s this very peculiar background where Google is working with the Chinese on Communist government and not with the U.S. military; so the Project Maven decision was a decision not to work with A.I., with the U.S. military — but they’re working with the Communist Chinese.”

Lara Trump: ‘Frustrating’ to watch progressive Democrats ‘dump on our country’

Democrats‘ so-called progressive “squad” continues to critique America, which has rightfully led to friction with President Trump, according to 2020 campaign senior adviser Lara Trump.

Some of the policies advocated by the group — including calls to change border policies and abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — are counterintuitive to what a representative of the American people should support, Trump claimed Monday on “The Story.”

“It’s very frustrating to see people who are supposed to represent our country, these congresswomen, dump on our country every single day — call for the abolishment of ice, call for open borders, go against everything that he’s doing,” she said.

“At a certain point, we’re all frustrated as Americans.

“We need to step back for a second and remember Donald Trump is a man who gave up his entire life because he loves this country so much and he wanted to fix it.”

Lara Trump also questioned the intentions of Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

“Why are you representing people of this country if you dislike it so much?” she asked.

“His frustration is clear here,” she added of her father-in-law, the president.

STIREWALT: TRUMP’S OMAR, AOC COMMENTS LEADING PELOSI TO TRY TO ‘TRAP REPUBLICANS’

Members of the “squad” have feuded bitterly with top House Democrats in recent days, leading some observers to allege that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attacks on the freshmen progressives have emboldened Trump.

But, leading up to Monday evening’s news conference, the weight of the party establishment was firmly behind the four members of Congress — united, with all hands on deck, in attacking Trump’s comments. Pelosi announced Monday the House would take up a resolution to condemn the president’s “xenophobic tweets.”

Just minutes before the representatives were set to take the stage, Trump invoked Omar’s infamous casual reference to the 9/11 terrorist attacks as an instance in which “some people did something” — and renewed his calls for anti-American individuals to leave the country.

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country,” Trump wrote. “If you are NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!”

Trump added that some people “HATE our Country,” and are “anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.'”

Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera criticized President Trump Monday for his controversial tweets this Sunday saying he was “saddened” by the remarks and wished he would apologize.

“I was really saddened by what he said invoking the language of racism and xenophobia in describing these four women I thought it was very unnecessary,” Rivera said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

“The Democrats were doing a great job in destroying themselves and being divided and he united them gratuitously, I don’t know why he did it. I don’t know what he was thinking, it is unfortunate.”

Monday, Trump doubled down on his explosive tweets this weekend for progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from and “come back and show us how it’s done,” rather than criticize the Trump administration. He also demanded they “apologize” for what he called their anti-American “hate.”

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., held a press conference Monday blasting the president for his comments and calling for his impeachment.

Rivera lamented how the president’s comments can justify criticism levied against him.

“You know when I defend him I do so against all these gratuitous attacks in the media. He has the worst press of any president in modern history and yet he does things like this that leaves himself open to the criticism that he is exactly what the people who hate him say he is and I feel it’s very unfortunate,” Rivera said.

Rivera, who appeared emotional and said he considered the president a friend, said he hopes the president actually doesn’t believe his own comments.

“I just hope it isn’t a glimpse at his soul. I just hope that he doesn’t really believe that every person of color comes from someplace else,” Rivera said.

As for the congresswomen, Trump directed his comments toward, and whether or not their past controversial comments justify the president’s criticism, Rivera argued they had a different standard than the president.

“They are radicals. They have a different role than the president of the United States. The leader of the free world…. he’s the person that activates the slogan of the United States of America. He’s the glue. He can’t be the divider,” Geraldo said.

Jesse Watters: Trump ‘won’ the ‘squad’ press conference, Dems just want to ‘impeach him for tweeting’

President Trump emerged the victor after four freshmen Democratic lawmakers held a press conference responding to his criticisms of them, according to Jesse Watters.

The members of the so-called progressive “squad” continue to make extreme assertions about the president, which isn’t a good look for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Watters claimed Monday on “The Five.”

“Donald Trump won that press conference,” he said, moments after Reps. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. spoke on Capitol Hill.

“Nancy and ‘the squad’ lost — that was a terrible look. It seems like they want to victimize themselves even further. I don’t think that’s the way to go against President Trump.

“They’re saying he’s a white nationalist and he’s committing human rights violations… Obama actually deported more and also put people in cages.”

Watters also dismissed calls from Omar and Tlaib to remove Trump from office.

“They’re continuing to play the victim and continue to pout — and now they want to impeach him for tweeting,” he said.

Responding earlier, host Greg Gutfeld also said he believed Trump could claim victory after the lawmakers’ remarks.

“I think President Trump got exactly what he wanted,” he said, going on to list several disputed claims made by the congresswomen.

“I wrote down: ‘drinking out of toilets’ — that didn’t happen,” he said.

“Colluding with Russians — I think we found out the answer to that. The most corrupt presidency in history — ‘eh’.”

During the press conference, Pressley repeated referred to Trump as “the occupant of the White House.”

She claimed he is seeking to “marginalize and silence” the women, but quickly turned her focus to various issues, from gun violence to immigration.

Omar, however, curtly dismissed Trump’s rhetoric as “the bile of garbage that comes out of his mouth.”

Tlaib, speaking separately, backed Omar’s call for impeachment, saying Trump’s language was “disgusting and bigoted” and that his administration was “lawless.”

Asked by Fox News’ Chad Pergram about Trump’s criticisms of Omar’s remarks as anti-American, Omar slammed the president’s, “complete hypocrisy,” and said his presidential campaign was founded on all the things “wrong” with the United States.

Omar has previously been criticized by prominent members of both parties for making anti-Semitic remarks. In March, the Democrat-led House overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan resolution that indirectly condemned Omar’s repeated ‘anti-Semitic’ and ‘pernicious’ comments.
