Rubio hits back at NYT reporter who called him out for ‘smiling’ at Trump rally

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6047660448001_6047656906001-vs Rubio hits back at NYT reporter who called him out for ‘smiling’ at Trump rally fox-news/politics fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 26d36268-a687-5e38-afff-a75840b3da54

Don’t let a reporter from the Gray Lady catch you smiling at a Trump rally.

Senator Marco Rubio hit back at a New York Times reporter after the writer tweeted that it was “very strange” to see the Florida senator “smiling and chuckling” at the president’s re-election rally in Orlando Tuesday evening.

“BREAKING,” Rubio tweeted mockingly in response to Michael Barbaro. “In an unprecedented move a Republican Senator attended a rally in his home state in support of the re-election of a Republican President.”

In another tweet directed at Barbaro, he aligned himself with several of the president’s policies. “As opposed to smiling & chuckling at a rally for a radical liberal candidate for President who will undo policies to confront China, reduce regulations & taxes, defend liberty in Venezuela & protect the unborn?” he asked rhetorically.

Rubio also called out Barbaro, writing that after weeks of covering him in 2015, the reporter “uncovered that my wife had traffic tickets, I had a fishing boat & my home has big windows.”

Tensions between Rubio and Trump were high in the midst of the 2016 Republican primary when Rubio called Trump the man “with the worst spray tan in America” and joked with a rally crowd that then-candidate Trump may have wet his pants during a debate and had small hands.

Trump dubbed him “Little Marco,” said the senator “choked like a dog” during a debate and “couldn’t get elected dog catcher” in Florida. Rubio dropped out of the race after he lost his home state to Trump by double digits.

Charlie Kirk: Ocasio-Cortez ‘the most powerful Democrat in office’

Westlake Legal Group Kirk-Ingraham_Getty-Fox Charlie Kirk: Ocasio-Cortez 'the most powerful Democrat in office' fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz c315156f-3bfc-50c4-96b9-13f7b55a1a48 article

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., may not be in House leadership, but she is still the most powerful Democratic lawmaker in office, according to Charlie Kirk.

The lack of intraparty blowback against Ocasio-Cortez for comparing detention facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border to concentration camps is evidence of this, he claimed Tuesday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“Immediately, when she says something that is historically wrong or morally incorrect, or something that’s totally detestable, anyone who calls her out for that or criticizes her, all of a sudden we are attacking her,” the Turning Point USA founder told host Laura Ingraham.

“Isn’t that strange? We can’t have a conversation on something she said wrong without saying ‘Republicans pounce’,” he said.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: THE U.S. IS ‘RUNNING CONCENTRATION CAMPS ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER’

“Let’s just be very honest. She is basically the most powerful Democrat in office right now in America.”

Kirk claimed the Bronx congresswoman’s presence on Instagram and other online platforms shows she can draw more attention than some in her party.

“If you really think about it, she has more social media power, she’s able to draw crowds,” he said.

“Most of the Democrats – they couldn’t fill up this crowd if they paid people. They can’t fill up coffee shops,” Kirk continued, speaking from the Amway Center in Orlando, where President Trump held a large rally Tuesday night.

Kirk attributed Ocasio-Cortez’s popularity to the fact she often appears “angry” and favors ideas popular among the party’s more liberal base.

“She has the power of the base of the party because she is angry and she’s committed toward these radical ideas.”

Regarding her comments about concentration camps, Kirk said the New York Democrat should feel “shame.”

Ocasio-Cortez told her Instagram followers Monday the U.S. government is “running concentration camps on our southern border.”

“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a live-stream that was viewed by Fox News.

“The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it,” the freshman Democrat continued.

Fox News’ Joseph Wulfsohn contributed to this report.

Matt Gaetz: Trump’s ‘Keep America Great’ campaign an ‘inclusive movement’

President Trump’s campaign is an inclusive venture that seeks to unite Americans in favor of economic prosperity, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

Gaetz’ home state was “electric” Wednesday night during the president’s raucous rally in Orlando, the congressman from Pensacola said on Fox News’ “Hannity” after the event.

“What’s different about Donald Trump – and so special – is that it’s an inclusive movement that invites people in if they want better jobs, better opportunity, and if they want America respected again,” Gaetz said.

PRESIDENT TRUMP UNVEILS 2020 SLOGAN TO REPLACE 2016 RALLYING CRY DURING CAMPAIGN RALLY

“There’s an electricity here in Florida that we think is going to pulse all around America with an enthusiasm for the Trump campaign,” he added.

The House Judiciary Committee member said people at the rally, which he too attended, were invited to be part of the campaign.

“What was so special today is that people really felt part of this movement,” he said. “It was great to see the president reinforce those themes.”

Gaetz added Trump will “excite the vibrance of this great country through his reelection campaign.”

During the rally, which served as an official kickoff event for Trump’s 2020 re-election effort, the president told the Amway Center crowd he was christening a new campaign slogan to replace “Make America Great Again.”

“We’ve made America great again, but how do you give up the number one — call it theme, logo, statement, in the history of politics — for a new one?” the president asked the crowd.

“You know there is a new one that really works, and that’s called ‘Keep America Great.’ Right? ‘Keep America Great.'”

Watch: President Trump debuts Hillary Clinton impression during Florida campaign rally

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6049740711001_6049745863001-vs Watch: President Trump debuts Hillary Clinton impression during Florida campaign rally Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 1d55b201-6f16-5cd0-a529-b278a6df8afe

It’s been years since President Trump rolled out his nickname for Hillary Clinton, but on Tuesday night he unveiled a potentially new impression of her.

Trump, speaking at his official campaign launch in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday night, harkened back to a moment from the 2016 debates with “Crooked Hillary” when the Democratic candidate asked if he would accept the results of the election.

To the delight of the thousands in attendance, Trump mockingly asked the question in a voice — seemingly debuting his “Hillary voice”.

‘OMG’: TOP HILLARY AIDE STUNNED BY APPARENT EMAIL HACK ATTEMPT IN MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, FBI DOCS SHOW

“You remember during one of the debates when ‘Crooked Hillary’ said ‘If I win, are you going to support me?’  But I must be honest, I didn’t give her a great answer,” Trump said, using the former Secretary of State’s voice. “That might have been my hardest question. During the debates. Isn’t it amazing that it worked the other way around, right?”

The entertainer-in-chief had the Florida crowd in a frenzy as he described his analysis of Clinton and her email scandal, telling the crowd he would not get the same benefit of the doubt with one email deleted and compared the Russia investigation to Clinton’s Benghazi investigation.

STATE DEPARTMENT IDENTIFIES 23 VIOLATIONS, ‘MULTIPLE SECURITY INCIDENTS’ CONCERNING CLINTON EMAILS

“If you want to know how the system is rigged, just compare how they came after us for three years with everything they had versus the free pass they gave to Hillary and her aides after they set up an illegal server, destroyed evidence, deleted and acid washed thirty-three thousand e-mails, exposed classified information and turned the State Department into a pay for play cash machine,” Trump said working the crowd into a fervor.

“If I got a subpoena for e-mails if I deleted one e-mail. Like a love note to Melania it’s the electric chair for Trump,” the president joked.

Trump has shown he isn’t afraid to go off script during his rallies and also takes pride in prodding his political rivals. He recently dubbed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ‘Nervous Nancy.’

Dana Perino: Dems could be looking to ‘chop down’ tallest oak in Biden at debates

Westlake Legal Group Biden-Perino_AP-FOX Dana Perino: Dems could be looking to 'chop down' tallest oak in Biden at debates Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 946d299c-08ae-57a4-8410-37522c7805ea

Expect Democratic presidential candidates to focus on ‘chopping down’ former Vice President Joe Biden at next week’s debates, says Fox News’ Dana Perino.

“He is the tallest oak in the yard and there are a lot of Democrats that want to figure out a way to chop him down,” Perino told “The Story with Martha MacCallum” guest host Ed Henry Tuesday.

The first debate of the Democratic primary season will be split into two nights, June 26-27. The second night features most of the high-polling candidates on the stage, including Biden.

BIDEN HITS BACK AT SANDERS REPEATED CRITICISM

The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” host said fellow 2020 hopefuls could take the opportunity to try to paint Biden as the past and follow the path of former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama by pitching future and progress to the Democratic base.

“Next week at the debates when they start for the Democrats you will see that the shots being taken, not just at Donald Trump… They’ll all do that. But there is going to be a movement for example like a Pete Buttigieg, who’s trying to say that we want the party to go forward. Biden wants to take you backward,” Perino said.

LATEST POLL NUMBERS IN 2020 DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION RACE

“And most Democrats the ones who have done very well just think in the past Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. What were their big campaign slogans — hope and change, moving forward.”

The comments came after Biden said he can win states no Democrat has won in presidential elections in decades.

“I plan on campaigning in the South. I plan on — if I’m your nominee — winning Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, believe it or not,” Biden vowed Monday, as he spoke at a gathering in the nation’s capital of the Poor People’s Campaign’s Moral Action Congress.

No Democrat has carried South Carolina in a presidential election since Jimmy Carter more than four decades ago. Biden, who has developed deep ties over the years in the state where he often vacations, enjoys a large lead over his primary rivals in the state’s crucial first-in-the-South presidential primary.

But capturing the conservative state in a general election would be a high hurdle. Republicans have won the state in every presidential election dating back to 1968, except for Carter’s victory in 1976.

No Democrat has won Georgia since Bill Clinton in 1992. And other than Barack Obama’s victory in 2008, North Carolina has been solidly in the GOP column in each presidential election dating back to 1968.

Juan Williams: Anti-Trump protesters targeting Lawrence Jones with racist abuse an example of ‘intolerance coming from the left’

Westlake Legal Group Williams-Jones_FoX Juan Williams: Anti-Trump protesters targeting Lawrence Jones with racist abuse an example of 'intolerance coming from the left' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article a87051ee-9f1c-504f-9820-1a8da297a35c

Anti-Trump protestors who targeted Fox News contributor Lawrence Jones with racist remarks during an impeachment rally in Manhattan exposed a level of intolerance on the left, according to Juan Williams.

Williams tackled the topic on “The Five,” after protesters at the rally told Jones to “go back to Kenya” and to go back to Fox News “where there’s more cotton for you to pick,” according to a Fox News producer who was at the scene.

“Lawrence has a legitimate right to speak his truth,” Williams said Tuesday, before saying the incident is proof there is intolerance on both sides of the political aisle.

“Why don’t you want to hear it? To me, that’s intolerance coming from the left.”

FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR LAWRENCE JONES FACES RACIST TAUNTS FROM PROTESTERS AT ‘IMPEACH TRUMP’ RALLY

Williams continued by describing the behavior as “damning” and questioning why people “go to that extent”.

“That kind of attitude toward Lawrence is not acceptable,” he said. “To me, it is so damning that they feel the need to go to that extent.”

Williams’ comments came after Jones described the incident on “Hannity” on Monday night.

“This is who they are, Sean,” the Campus Reform editor-in-chief claimed. “So often those of us on the right are painted as the racist people, the hateful people,” he said.

LAWRENCE JONES REACTS TO RACIST COMMENTS AT ‘IMPEACH TRUMP’ RALLY: ‘THIS IS WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE’

“I was just asking these people a simple question about if they felt like the president should be impeached or not.”

Despite the shocking taunts, Jones said he was not fazed.

“I’m going to expose it every single day,” he said. “If they think I’ll stand down because they yelled obscene things, to me they have another thing coming.”

MSNBC contributor makes shocking claim that Kyle Kashuv’s online posts are similar to those of a mass shooter

Westlake Legal Group David-Jolly MSNBC contributor makes shocking claim that Kyle Kashuv's online posts are similar to those of a mass shooter Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/second-amendment fox-news/us/education/controversies fox-news/us/crime/mass-murder fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc bec3521d-9aa5-5329-8cbe-28c87f6825a1 article

MSNBC contributor David Jolly shockingly suggested on Tuesday that the social media messages written by Parkland student Kyle Kashuv sounded like ones of a mass shooter and he “deserves a closer look” as to whether the pro-Second Amendment advocate should be able to purchase a firearm.

Jolly began by telling MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle that he has taken a “harder line” in the debate over whether or not Harvard should have rescinded Kashuv’s acceptance after racist and anti-Semitic messages written by the student when he was 16 years old emerged. The former Congressman said today’s political leaders have given “greater permission” to people with “racist feelings,” and heralded the importance of Harvard taking a stand.

Then he launched into the more shocking part of his statements, comparing the Parkland survivor’s online language to that of mass shooters.

CONSERVATIVE PARKLAND STUDENT DROPPED BY HARVARD ASKS FOR FORGIVENESS: ‘I WISH I COULD TAKE IT BACK’

“My immediate reaction when I really dug into this, these are the social media postings we see of a shooter and we ask, ‘Where were the signs?’ See something, Say something. We see a shooter, and then we go back and look at social media posts and this is exactly what we see,” Jolly said.

“I understand the sensitivity of this man toward Parkland. I’m not a mental health professional to assess him on those grounds but what I’m suggesting… “

“But Congressman, is that too far?” Ruhle interrupted. “Can you make that a leap like that?”

HARVARD RESCINDS OFFER TO KYLE KASHUV, PRO-SECOND AMENDMENT PARKLAND SURVIVOR, DUE TO PAST REMARKS, HE SAYS

“It is not. No, Jolly responded, “because if an incident were to occur — and I‘m not saying it will with this young man — but these are the exact posts we find of people, particularly those who advocate for stronger gun rights, who has been given an audience with the President of the United States in the Oval Office, by Nikki Haley as well, by Vice President Mike Pence, who was an invited guest to a rally to speak for Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis, who was a speaker at the NRA recently… you have to question how do we promote somebody with these social media posts in their background.”

The ex-lawmaker concluded by saying Kashuv “deserves redemption” but also “deserves a closer look if someone with this profile should be able to purchase a firearm under the gun laws in the United State.”

Kashuv has repeatedly apologized for his offensive messages, insisting he has “transformed” into a better human being since the deadly 2018 shooting in Parkland.

Chaffetz: Secretary of State Pompeo should be ‘personally involved’ in Clinton email server review

Westlake Legal Group hemmerchaffetz Chaffetz: Secretary of State Pompeo should be 'personally involved' in Clinton email server review fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/state-department fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 51e6fce4-14a3-561a-b485-74eb649aaab9

Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz said Tuesday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo should be “personally involved” with the review of whether State Department personnel mishandled information contained on Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

The State Department revealed Monday that it identified “multiple security incidents” involving current or former employees’ handling of Clinton’s emails, and that 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” have been issued as part of the department’s ongoing investigation.

The information came in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, who is responsible for overseeing the security review.

“To this point, the Department has assessed culpability to 15 individuals, some of whom were culpable in multiple security incidents,” Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the State Department’s assistant secretary in the Bureau of Legislative Affairs, wrote to Grassley. “DS has issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents. … This number will likely change as the review progresses.”

JASON CHAFFETZ: CONGRESS DOUBLES DOWN ON INCENTIVIZING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Chaffetz said it appears that Grassley, R-Iowa, is the only lawmaker who is continuing to pursue the matter. He stressed that the State Department has still never identified anyone who lost their security clearance as a consequence.

“I love Mike Pompeo as the secretary of state. I have the greatest respect for him, he’s got his very full plate, but he has to personally get involved with this. Some people should be fired, they should lose their security clearances and they should be in jail,” he said.

Chaffetz, a Fox News contributor and former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said the number of incidents reported to Grassley seems “exceptionally low” after three years of investigation.

The State Department, calling the matter “serious,” said it expected to conclude the investigation by Sept. 1. The department acknowledged that the probe was unusually time-consuming.

“Given the volume of emails provided to the department from former Secretary Clinton’s private email server, the department’s process has been necessarily more complicated and complex requiring a significant dedication of time and resources,” Taylor wrote.

Fox News’ Gregg Re and Catherine Herridge contributed to this report.

LaVar Ball condemned for ‘inappropriate’ comment to female ESPN host on air

Westlake Legal Group 0518-lavar-ball LaVar Ball condemned for 'inappropriate' comment to female ESPN host on air Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/sports fnc dc51ff60-90f3-5027-a1c8-a0f42603d0e6 article

LaVar Ball has been slammed for making an “inappropriate” remark to a female ESPN host on Monday, with the network officially condemning him.

Ball made the comments during ESPN’s “First Take” on Monday morning when talking about his son, Lonzo Ball, who was part of the trade deal that reportedly brought Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans to the Los Angeles Lakers.

LAVAR BALL VOWS LAKERS WILL ‘NEVER WIN ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP’ AFTER TEAM REPORTEDLY TRADES HIS SON

Molly Qerim, the host, tried to get the show back on the track after Ball began directing the show, saying “LaVar, can I switch gears with you because I have a question here.”

“You can switch gears with me anytime,” Ball responded during the live interview, prompting outcry on social media.

At the end of the show, Qerim supposedly alluded to the comments made by Ball, saying “If anyone’s calling HR today, it’s me.”

The ESPN released a statement condemning the comments made by Ball and said he was made aware of that.

“LaVar Ball’s comment to Molly Qerim Rose was completely inappropriate and we made him aware of that,” the statement read, according to Larry Brown Sports.

Jemele Hill, writer for the Atlantic magazine who left the network last year following controversial comments about President Trump, praised the host for handling the loudmouth live on air but suggested ESPN should stop putting Ball on air.

“Kudos to Molly Querim for the professional way she handled LaVar Ball after his inappropriate comment. Maybe ESPN will have finally learned its lesson about putting him on TV,” she wrote.

Ball fired back against criticism, releasing a statement insisting that he wasn’t trying to be inappropriate and the meaning of his comment was misrepresented.

Gen. Jack Keane: Trump sanctions ‘crippling’ Iran, trying to curb ‘aggressive behavior’

The Trump administration’s Iran sanctions are hurting the country’s economy and recent events are exposing Tehran’s strategy to deal with the matter, Gen. Jack Keane claimed.

In the time since President Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal and reimposed the sanctions, Iran has been growing increasingly “desperate,” Keane said on “Fox News @ Night

“I think what the Trump administration is doing is fundamentally trying to change Iran’s behavior, not just with nuclear weapons, but their aggressive behavior in the Middle East,” the retired general said.

IRAN RESPONSIBLE FOR ‘BLATANT ASSAULT’ ON OIL TANKERS IN GULF OF OMAN, MIKE POMPEO SAYS

“I think it is working because the sanctions are crippling them. They’ve got obviously a little more desperate here.”

“I think Iran’s strategy here is really to use the international community, Europeans, even Japan, to put pressure on the United States to back off. That is what disrupting the world’s main oil artery in the Middle East is about,” he added, appearing to reference the Iran-linked bombings of oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for what he called a “blatant assault” on the vessels last Thursday.

In a news conference, Pompeo said: “This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication.”

He charged Iran was working to disrupt the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz and this is a deliberate part of a campaign to escalate tension, adding that the U.S. would defend its forces and interests in the region, although he did not elaborate.
