Dr. Ben Carson: ‘Political class can’t recognize’ this is about the ‘welfare of our nation’

Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force, joined “Hannity” where he praised the president and urged the “political class” to rise above partisanship to deal with the outbreak.

“It’s wonderful that we have a leader who is willing to take decisive action to make hard cause. I’ve seen him many times, make a hard call when everybody else said something else. And he’s been right,” Carson said. “He has very, very good judgment. And, you know, his care in this situation is about the American people, about protecting them and not about political issues.”

TRUMP SETS NEW TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS OVER CORONAVIRUS

Carson weighed in on Trump’s meeting with pharmaceutical companies Monday saying that those concerned with politics should learn from the meeting today.

“And one of the things that I think is very interesting is that a consortium of drug companies have gotten together. They’re normally, you know, competitors. They are working together to come up with cures and to come up with vaccines,” Carson said. “Why is it that the political class can’t recognize that this is something that should rise above that level and that we need to be concerned about the welfare of our nation?”

Trump said Monday his administration has asked pharmaceutical companies to “accelerate” efforts to create a coronavirus vaccine, just a day after the second confirmed U.S. fatality related to the virus.

Host Sean Hannity asked Carson about the virus and his understanding of it. Carson said we should prepare and treat the virus as we would be with the flu.

“We need to recognize that, you know, it is a virus and it needs to be treated like virus and like viral infections. And we need to emphasize to people that you need to do the same things that you would do for any other flu or viral infection,” Carson said. “Keep your your hands washed. Be careful about, you know, where you go and keep yourself healthy in terms of hydration, eating things that are helpful to you, getting plenty of rest. These are the kinds things that make a big difference for people.”

Chris Matthews absent from MSNBC’s primary coverage after sexism allegations, on-air slip-ups

Westlake Legal Group Chris-Matthews-Getty Chris Matthews absent from MSNBC's primary coverage after sexism allegations, on-air slip-ups fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/south-carolina fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-primaries fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Brie Stimson article 88e9dd3b-cb7a-51cb-a61c-2cc2a589d563

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was noticebaly absent from the network’s South Carolina primary coverage Saturday evening, one day after being accused of “sexist” behavior by a former network contributor — and then later misidentifying a politician while on the air.

Earlier in the week, Matthews had issued an on-air apology after drawing backlash for comparing the Nevada caucus victory of Sen. Bernie Sanders to the 1940 invasion of France by the Nazis.

In an op-ed for GQ on Friday, journalist Laura Bassett claimed Matthews had used sexist language when she would visit the MSNBC studio to appear on his show as a guest.

EX-MSNBC GUEST RIPS ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’ NETWORK, CLAIMS MATTHEWS’ ‘SEXIST’ BEHAVIOR UNDERMINED HER PERFORMANCE

She recalled Matthews looking at her in an adjacent makeup chair before an appearance in 2016 and asking: ‘Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?'” Bassett said she laughed nervously but Matthews kept making comments to the makeup artist. “Keep putting makeup on her, I’ll fall in love with her,” Matthews allegedly said.

She said he made another comment about her makeup during a separate appearance. “Make sure you wipe this off her face after the show,” she wrote he said to the makeup artist. “We don’t make her up so some guy at a bar can look at her like this.”

Bassett said she decided to write the op-ed because of a “sexist” interview Matthews did with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., after the last debate in which he pressed her about her accusation that former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg has once told a woman at his company to “kill” her unborn baby. Bloomberg denies he said it.

A feminist group has called for Matthews’ firing over the interview.

Bassett said she wrote a similar op-ed in 2017 without naming Matthews because she was afraid to publicly accuse him at the time, but wrote many women reached out to her saying they knew who she was talking about.

She said while she didn’t think Matthews’ behavior rose to the level of criminal sexual harassment, it undermined her ability to do her job.

In 2017, it was reported that NBC paid $40,000 to a producer on Matthews’ show who claimed he sexually harassed her.

MSNBC has not confirmed the amount paid to the woman, nor has the network said whether the payment was made to settle a harassment claim.

An MSNBC spokesperson said at the time that executives were told that Matthews made inappropriate jokes and comments about the woman in front of others, that the matter was reviewed and it was determined the comments were inappropriate and made in poor taste but were never meant as propositions.

NBC did not immediately respond to Fox News’ after-hours request for comment.

‘Mistaken identity’

Then during his “Hardball” broadcast Friday, Matthews mistook Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jaime Harrison, chalking it up as a case of “mistaken identity.”

Harrison was appearing on “Hardball” to discuss his campaign to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., but the interview went off the rails when Matthews ran a clip of Scott standing beside Graham at that evening’s Trump rally in North Charleston and assumed it was Harrison.

Both Scott and Harrison are African-American.

CHRIS MATTHEWS MISTAKES GOP SEN. TIM SCOTT FOR DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER TO LINDSEY GRAHAM

“Jaime, I see you standing next to the guy you’re going to beat right there, maybe,” he said. “Maybe? Maybe, maybe? Lindsey Graham?”

Soon Matthews realized his error and apologized to Harrison.

“What am I saying? Big mistake. Mistaken identity, sir. Sorry,” Matthews said.

Harrison appeared to roll his eyes and looked shocked, but kept a smile on his face and answered Matthews’ question.

‘I will strive to do a better job’

Matthews also took fire for a comment he made about Sanders’ decisive victory in Nevada last weekend, comparing the candidate to the Nazis’ defeat of France during World War II.

“I’m reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,” Matthews said during the network’s Nevada coverage. “And the general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’ and Churchill says, ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”

But many viewers were outraged by the comments — and Matthews apologized Monday.

“Senator Sanders, I’m sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, especially the Jewish people, to an electorate result in which you were the well-deserved winner,” Matthews said. “This is going to be a hard-fought, heated campaign of ideas. In the days and weeks and months ahead, I will strive to do a better job myself of elevating the political discussion. Congratulations, by the way, to you, Senator Sanders, and to your supporters on a tremendous win down in Nevada.”

NFL analyst Tony Romo agrees to $17M per year to stay at CBS

Tony Romo has agreed to the largest sports analyst contract in TV history, The Post has learned.

The deal to remain at CBS will prevent Romo from entering free agency next week, where ESPN was prepared to bid aggressively for him.

Romo’s new contract with CBS will pay him around $17 million per season, which is more than double the previous NFL high of $8 million per year that John Madden received more than two decades ago.

NFL DRAFT PROSPECT SMACKED IN THE FACE DURING SCOUTING COMBINE ‘GAUNTLET DRILL’

Even when adjusted for inflation — which would make Madden’s number $14 million — Romo still is the highest paid ever.

The long-term deal, sources say, is for significantly more than five years, which means the total value for Romo’s contract will well surpass $100 million.

During his playing career, Romo earned a total of $127 million over 14 seasons. There were only three seasons as the Cowboys’ quarterback that he made more than $17 million.

CBS was motivated this week by Disney’s ability to start bidding on Romo in March, when he could have been eligible for free agency. CBS thought Disney — which hoped to use Romo as a carrot as it goes after a Super Bowl in the next round of negotiations — would bid $20 million per year. ESPN officials vigorously disputed that, saying they would never have bid close to that number.

Though Romo’s salary is astronomical for 20 NFL games, CBS officials felt he showed loyalty because he could have explored how high ESPN would go. CBS and Romo’s partner, Jim Nantz, have been universally praised since network executives Sean McManus and David Berson took the chance on putting Romo in the booth right off the field three years ago.

In Romo’s rookie deal, CBS did have a card to play that could have prevented him from becoming an unrestricted free agent.

Per the terms of Romo’s original contract, he had to tell CBS what it would take for him to agree to a contract prior to him being allowed to go on the open market, sources said. CBS was willing to meet the around $17 million per year and $100-plus milion figure that blocked out ESPN from even getting a chance.

CBS’s calculation is that they spend billions on the NFL, so bidding this high on Romo made sense in the grand scheme. They hope to retain their Sunday afternoon package and Super Bowl in the next round of negotiations with the NFL.

Romo will now earn nearly twice as much in one year than he made during his entire rookie deal, which was for three years and around $10 million. He made a little more than $3 million last season.

As for ESPN, sources have said it has alternative plans as to how it may remodel its “Monday Night Football” booth, which currently consists of Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland.

The first call is likely to be to Peyton Manning, asking if this is finally the year he wants to try to be an analyst.

With the money Disney was planning to offer Romo and with what Romo is being paid by CBS, Manning would have to listen. If Manning says no, ESPN would have to move to Plan C. ESPN was thinking big with Romo and the Super Bowl, but CBS had the initial foresight to sign Romo — and they refused to let him go.

Jury in Harvey Weinstein trial didn’t have enough to convict on predatory sexual assault charge: legal experts

Former Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty on Monday of two of the five charges relating to sexual assaults after a five-day jury deliberation in Manhattan, New York City.

Weinstein, 67, was found guilty of committing a criminal sex act for assaulting a production assistant in his apartment in 2006 and was also found guilty of the third-degree rape of another woman in 2013.

Weinstein was found not guilty on the most serious charge of predatory sexual assault – which could have resulted in a life sentence. Additionally, he was ordered back to jail immediately following the conviction.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN FOUND GUILTY OF THIRD-DEGREE RAPE, CRIMINAL SEX ACT; DA SAYS CASE ‘CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY’

Although Weinstein was convicted on two of the charges against him, many believe the former Miramax studio head could have been found guilty on the more serious predatory sexual assault charge had prosecutors been able to prove Weinstein’s conduct was “repetitive” or forceful – which can be difficult to justify given the jury heard the testimony of various women who stated they were sexually assaulted over an extended period of time.

“The verdict indicates that the jury found the witnesses and their testimony credible but were either not convinced that the state proved that Mr. Weinstein’s conduct was repetitive,” criminal defense attorney Falen Cox – who was not involved with the case – told Fox News on Monday. “Most likely, the jurors compromised and agreed to convict for the offenses that they’d already indicated reaching a unanimous decision, and acquit on the charges they could not agree on.”

The jury of seven men and five women handed down the verdict on Monday after five days of deliberating.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN FOUND GUILTY OF THIRD-DEGREE RAPE, CRIMINAL SEX ACT; DA SAYS CASE ‘CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY’

“The jurors indicated, prior to the verdict, that they could not reach a unanimous verdict on the most serious charges, indicating that at least some jurors didn’t believe the state proved those counts beyond a reasonable doubt,” Cox continued. “In those instances, where not all jurors believe the state has carried its burden — it is the individual juror’s duty to acquit. Jury deliberations often result in compromise — it is difficult to get 12 people to unanimously agree.”

Cox noted that it isn’t uncommon for jurors on one side, or the other, of a verdict to persuade other members of the jury to change their minds, adding that the overall point of a jury is to be open to considering the points of other jurors through examining and re-examining the evidence presented to the court.

In this courtroom drawing, Harvey Weinstein, center, sits at the defense table surrounded by his attorneys as jurors file out of the courtroom after being told by the judge to go back and keep deliberating in Weinstein’s rape case, Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York.

“This verdict is consistent with the difficulty in prosecuting and defending allegations of sexual assault, especially against adult women,” she added. “Our system requires the state to carry a heavy burden to deprive citizens of life and liberty and if 12 people don’t agree that the burden has been carried, and do not change their opinions, even after constructive deliberation and thoughtful evaluation of the evidence, the only true verdict is not guilty.”

Another legal expert believes the prosecution did exactly what they could in prosecuting such a case against Weinstein. Former New York prosecutor Jill Stanley – who was also not involved with the case – echoed Cox’s sentiment on the magnitude surrounding the complexities of the case. However, Stanley believes the prosecution proved Weinstein guilty beyond a reasonable doubt on the criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape but nothing else.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S BAIL INCREASED TO $5 MILLION, FACING JAIL OVER ALLEGEDLY MISHANDLING ANKLE MONITOR

“I don’t see this as a compromise verdict,” said Stanley. “Prosecutors proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt as to criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape. The predatory rape charges are difficult to prove, especially with such an old claim supporting the charge – the Annabella Sciorra rape was alleged to have occurred in the early ’90s.”

“Had there been a stronger, more recent rape allegation serving as the basis for the second rape then, in all likelihood, this jury would have convicted Weinstein of predatory rape as well. The bottom line is this was the right verdict given the evidence presented,” Stanley continued.

Given the fact that the law requires two acts of rape to be charged as a predator and given the continued communication between Weinstein and the victims, Stanley agrees the case proved “complicated” from the start.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN: THESE WOMEN BROKE THEIR SILENCE TO TESTIFY AGAINST THE DISGRACED HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER

“[It] was hard for many to wrap their heads around but the prosecution did an excellent job via experts and witness testimony explaining to the jury the why behind this – why victims still maintain contact with their abusers,” Stanley said.

Meanwhile, both Cox and Stanley anticipate Weinstein’s defense team is already hard at work on getting their client out of jail despite being ordered to serve his time behind bars in the interim as he awaits sentencing.

“Unlike after Bill Cosby was found guilty of sexual assault, the judge presiding over the Weinstein trial, Judge Burke, remanded Weinstein to jail right from the courtroom – he was cuffed and led off while he awaits sentencing,” said Stanley. “No doubt his legal team is already back at their desks, drafting a motion seeking his release pending sentencing based on his medical condition. That motion is not likely to be granted. Harvey Weinstein will now remain a guest of the State of New York for quite some time.”

Cox added: “The sentencing range for the crimes Mr. Weinstein was convicted of is between 5 and 25 years. The judge will determine the sentence at the sentencing hearing and will be allowed to consider mitigation and aggravating evidence. The judge will have the discretion to sentence anywhere within the range allowed by law.”

Rod Blagojevich, Anderson Cooper spar over ex-gov’s record, criminal case: ‘Just bulls—‘

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper engaged in a lengthy and contentious back-and-forth Friday night over the recently freed Democrat’s record and claims he’s made about his criminal case.

Their frustration with one another appeared to reach a boiling point, with Cooper accusing Blagojevich on air of spouting “bulls—,” and Blagojevich using the same profane term in his reply.

CNN did not bleep the remarks.

During their discussion, Blagojevich continued to maintain his innocence regarding the corrupion charges on which he was convicted, telling Cooper he was a “political prisoner” of an unjust criminal justice system — until President Trump commuted his sentence this week, freeing Blagojevich from prison.

ROD BLAGOJEVICH’S SENTENCE COMMUTED: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT FORMER ILLINOIS GOVERNOR’S CASE

The CNN host balked at the claim, accusing Blagojevich of essentially comparing himself to Nelson Mandela — the late South African leader who was long imprisoned because of a racist apartheid system.

“I bet if you were to ask Nelson Mandela whether he thought it was fair in the early ‘60s in South Africa he would say what I’m saying today,” Blagojevich fired back.

Cooper interjected: “I’ve just got to stop you. As someone who worked in South  Africa and saw apartheid, the idea that you are comparing yourself to somebody who has actually been railroaded by an apartheid system is just nuts and, frankly offensive.”

Blagojevich reminded Cooper that it was he, not Blagojevich, who brought Mandela’s name into the conversation.

Blagojevich then told Cooper a more apt comparison would be to U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., whose own federal corruption case was thrown out by a Newark federal judge in 2018. The U.S. Justice Department ultimately opted against retrying the Menendez case.

“What I’m saying is, I was thrown in prison and spent nearly eight years in prison for practicing politics — for seeking campaign contributions without a quid pro quo. No express quid pro quo — and I was given the same standards Senator Menendez was given,” Blagojevich said. “I could very well have been in the U.S. Senate instead of where I was.”

Blagojevich repeated his claim that he was the victim of corrupt federal prosecutors with “uncontrolled” power, and began to invoke chief prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald before Cooper cut him off to ask about a previous remark.

Cooper said Blagojevich was not only convicted by a jury of Illinoians but had his case upheld by a circuit court and denied a hearing by the Supreme Court.

“Your argument doesn’t hold up,” he said.

Later in the interview, when Blagojevich defended his “requests for campaign contributions,” a bemused Cooper interjected “extorting a children’s hospital.” Blagojevich again went on defense, saying there was no “quid pro quo” in that situation.

Cooper later claimed Blagojevich was engaging in the usage of a “whole new alternate universe of facts” and failing to admit guilt.

“That may be big in politics today but it’s still frankly just bulls—,” Cooper said.

“It’s not bulls—, I lived it myself, it’s not bulls— at all,” Blagojevich shot back.

Michael Loftus: Calling Trump racist for praising ‘Gone With the Wind’ is ‘end stage’ of ‘Trump derangement’

Comedian and Fox Nation personality Michael Loftus told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday that media figures calling out President Trump for his critique of Oscar-winning South Korean film “Parasite” as well as his praise for the classic “Gone With The Wind” are suffering from “end-stage” Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Trump was lambasted for wondering aloud why an American movie academy would award its highest honor to a foreign film, pointing to the Clark Gable epic as an example of award-winning cinema.

Sociologist Michael Eric Dyson claimed on “The View” Friday that the film hearkens to “subordinating black people to white folk,” while CNN’s John King directly called the film “racist.”

Also on CNN, New York Times congressional editor Julie Hirschfeld Davis said that the remark was “another way of reminding people of these cultural themes that he really likes to talk about: ‘This is not the country that it should be, this is not the country we want it to be.'”

“Why don’t we bring back Mamie with the handkerchief on her head?” said Republican commentator Ana Navarro on “The View,” sarcastically responding to Trump.

“[Gone With The Wind] is a great piece of American filmmaking,” Loftus said Friday. “I feel bad for all these people at the height of Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

“That’s the end stage of Trump Derangement Syndrome — anything that Trump mentions is racist. At this point blinking will be racist, smiling, using hand gestures…”

Loftus added that he enjoyed Best Picture winner “Parasite,” which was filmed in Korean, but said that the Oscars should be “br[ought] back home” and awarded to American movies.

Devin Nunes vows to sue Washington Post over ‘demonstrably false’ report he told Trump of intel testimony

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News Friday that he plans to sue The Washington Post over a report that claimed he went to the White House and told President Trump of purported testimony by a top intelligence official that Moscow is working to reelect the president in November.

The report also claimed that Trump “erupted” at Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire — who is being replaced by Richard Grenell weeks before Maguire’s “acting” tenure limit is reached March 11. A source who spoke to Trump about Grenell and Maguire told Fox News Thursday that the president did not appear to be upset in any way with Maguire.

“The most concerning part about all this is that we can’t talk about what happened in that meeting. So if anything in The Washington Post story or The New York Times story is true about Bernie Sanders or Putin’s plans and intentions, nobody who is on the committee or who has seen this classified information should be talking about it,” Nunes said on “The Story.

“It gets worse when you have The Washington Post’s claim that I went to the White House,” Nunes continued. “[That] I went to the White House to tell the president really bad things and that he should fire Maguire.

Nunes remarked that the paper will “have an opportunity in federal court in the next couple of weeks to explain who their sources are because I’m going to have to take them to court — because I didn’t go to the White House, I didn’t talk to President Trump.”

The Republican lawmaker claimed that litigation is the “only way to get these guys to stop” publishing false stories.

“They build a narrative, they plant the narrative, they write fake stories about it — things that should not be talked about, this classified information — and they run these stories.”

Nunes also expressed anger at the paper’s sources.

“Who the hell is leaking this if it is indeed true?”

When Faulkner asked Nunes to clarify whether he will seek to face the Jeff Bezos-owned outlet in court, the lawmaker replied: “I don’t have any choice.”
