Charlie Hurt: Biden’s gaffes must be ‘hugely embarrassing’ to Obama

Westlake Legal Group Joe-biden-obama-AP-Reuters Charlie Hurt: Biden's gaffes must be 'hugely embarrassing' to Obama fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/delaware fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/elections/presidential fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc de746ce7-7be4-5d49-958f-92b2379828dd Charles Creitz article

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s gaffes during his Democratic presidential campaign must be frustrating for former President Barack Obama, according to Charlie Hurt.

In addition, Hurt said, a published report that Obama advised Biden in early 2019 that he did not have to seek the presidency in 2020 is not a positive development for Biden.

“This has been his shtick for 45 years in Washington,” Hurt said Friday on “Hannity,” referring to Biden’s gaffes. “That’s why he’s never managed to get the nomination for president. It’s why the closest he’s ever come to the White House was being handpicked by Barack Obama to be his vice president.”

OBAMA REPORTEDLY TOLD BIDEN HE DIDN’T HAVE TO RUN IN 2020

The Fox News contributor added that Biden has not been a great ambassador for the Obama presidency.

“Think about this for a minute: Think about how embarrassed Barack Obama must be to have this guy trying to go out there and uphold Obama’s legacy,” he said. “It’s got to be hugely embarrassing.”

More from media

Regarding the New York Times report about Obama’s assessment of Biden’s presidential aspirations, Hurt considered whether someone in the ex-president’s orbit spoke with the paper.

“Who leaked this stuff?” he asked. “The only people that could have leaked all this stuff to the New York Times was Barack Obama’s people. And, I mean — what a shiv in the back.”

Guest host Gregg Jarrett added Biden has been attacked in primary debates for his connection to some of Obama’s policies.

In the Times story, Obama reportedly told Biden, “You don’t have to do this Joe, you really don’t.”

Obama reportedly “took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.”

Speculation has swirled over the decision by Obama to so far refrain from endorsing Biden formally. Still, despite Obama’s early hesitation, he has taken a much more involved role in Biden’s campaign than in the efforts of other candidates, The Times reported.

Gutfeld: Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Israel ‘stunt’ used grandma as ‘Trojan horse’

Westlake Legal Group Netanyahu-split Gutfeld: Rep. Rashida Tlaib's Israel 'stunt' used grandma as 'Trojan horse' fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/middle-east fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/benjamin-netanyahu fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8759eabb-22d1-56df-af8e-da076ae2295b

Events surrounding a now-curtailed trip to Israel by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., show the freshman lawmaker wanted to cause trouble, according to Greg Gutfeld.

However, Gutfeld’s co-host Juan Williams claimed Friday on “The Five” that it was President Trump who had acted inappropriately in regard to the itinerary.

“She wrote a letter saying she dearly needed to see her very old grandmother,” Gutfeld said of the Detroit-area Democrat.

“And, Israel approved. And then she said, ‘Ah, you know what, I’m not going to do it.’ So, she used her elderly grandmother as a prop for a stunt.

RASHIDA TLAIB SIGNALS SHE WON’T GO TO WEST BANK, DESPITE GETTING ISRAELI MINISTER’S PERMISSION

“Let’s not forget the trip that she was planning … was put together or planned with an anti-Semitic group.”

Gutfeld added Tlaib’s actions showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his administration acted responsibly in the matter.

“If someone is going to your house specifically to vandalize it or destroy it, you shouldn’t have them there,” he said.

“Then she used her grandmother as a Trojan horse to get in. It’s disgusting.”

However, Williams had another view, instead calling Trump’s actions “disgusting.”

ISRAEL BLOCKS OMAR, TLAIB FROM ENTERING COUNTRY AMID PRESSURE FROM TRUMP

President Trump going to a foreign country and saying that a member of our Congress can’t travel to your country — and our president is working against the U.S. government? It’s outrageous,” he said.

“He wants to make these four somehow the face of the Democratic Party,” he said of progressive freshman House members, Tlaib among them, who comprise “the Squad.”

In making the initial decision preventing entry in an official capacity, Netanyahu said travel plans by Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., referred to a trip to “Palestine,” not Israel, and the congresswomen were not interested in meeting with Israeli officials.

He went on to note that the Palestinian organization that planned the visit, MIFTAH, supports the boycott-Israel movement, and that people associated with the group have supported terror against Israel in the past.

HOUSE OVERWHELMINGLY OKS RESOLUTION OPPOSING ISRAEL BOYCOTT IN RARE BIPARTISAN VOTE

However, in a letter sent to Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Tlaib had requested a chance to visit her Palestinian grandmother, who lives in the West Bank, according to The Jerusalem Post.

“This could be my last opportunity to see her,” Tlaib wrote of her grandmother, who is in her 90s. “I will respect any restrictions and I will not promote any boycotts against Israel during my visit.”

Tlaib was later given permission to visit, but the Michigan lawmaker turned down the offer.

“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she tweeted.

“I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me and use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive and racist policies.”

On Thursday, Trump said in a tweet it would show “great weakness” for Israel to allow the two congresswomen into the country.

New York Post columnist: Public ‘too quick to damn masculinity’ because of ‘mutation’ of #MeToo, feminism

Westlake Legal Group splir-perino New York Post columnist: Public 'too quick to damn masculinity' because of 'mutation' of #MeToo, feminism fox-news/world/world-regions/australia fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/ohio fox-news/us/crime fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc dff31dcf-4abd-5d67-938c-25a8c4c8d221 Charles Creitz article

The public is often too quick to criticize classic masculine traits while ignoring their “chivalrous” actions in tense situations, according to Miranda Devine.

In her recent New York Post column, Devine laid out cases in which the “noble side” of masculinity is often glossed over, as the writer told Dana Perino Friday on “The Daily Briefing.”

“I think we so quick to damn masculinity, and unfortunately, this sort of offshoot fo the feminism movement, this sort of mutation of the #MeToo movement, has conspired to tell boys and young men that their masculinity, their very essence, is somehow toxic — is malign and diseased,” she said.

“Every time we have these stories of mayhem and bloodshed … you see men rushing in to save the weak, to save women, save children.”

SYDNEY STABBING VICTIM IDENTIFIED AS SEX WORKER WHO REPORTEDLY SAW SUSPECT BEFORE RAMPAGE

In her column, the Australian columnist pointed to brave actions by men during a recent stabbing attack in Sydney and the actions of a bouncer during the Dayton, Ohio, shooting.

She said the bouncer, Jeremy Ganger, stood “at a door and ushered everyone in, and he was injured in the process but he protected others.” Ganger suffered a leg wound in the attack.

More from media

In Australia on Tuesday, a 21-year-old man allegedly stabbed a 24-year-old woman to death, then went on a public rampage before being confronted by a group of civilians.

Those who intervened pinned him to the ground with a milk crate until authorities were able to arrest him. New South Wales Police Superintendent Gavin Wood said it appeared that the attack was unprovoked.

In her Post column, Devine described the phenomenon of men rushing toward danger as, “the chivalry instinct.”

“We always are quick to point to the dark side of masculinity when violence is committed, but too often we overlook the feats of bravery by men who combat it,” she wrote.

Watters: Biden campaign is ‘history repeating itself’ after former VP’s past flameouts

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 Democratic presidential bid may meet the same end as his last two attempts to win the White House, according to Fox News’ Jesse Watters.

Biden’s recent gaffes, and a new report that the former U.S. senator from Delaware may scale back his campaign appearances as a result, are troubling, Watters claimed Thursday on “Hannity.”

“He needs to call the MyPillow guy and nap off some of these gaffes,” Watters said, referring to entrepreneur and outspoken Trump supporter Michael Lindell.

“I don’t think he’s going to make it, I literally don’t,” Watters added about Biden. “He’s mixing up cities, he’s forgetting when he was vice president.” (Biden previously misstated the locations of two recent mass shootings and mistakenly said another had occurred while he was vice president when it actually occurred about a year after he left the job.)

“He needs to call the MyPillow guy and nap off some of these gaffes. …  He’s mixing up cities, he’s forgetting when he was vice president.”

— Jesse Watters

GAFFE-PRONE BIDEN SHOULDN’T BE CLOISTERED, OBAMA AIDE SAYS

“He flamed out the last two primaries. History is repeating itself,” Watters said. He added that Biden appeared to get “knocked around” by fellow 2020 contender Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., at a June debate, as well as by past claims of inappropriate touching.

Watters also pointed to parts of Biden’s campaign platform he found problematic.

“Think about what he said about China, about giving health care to illegal aliens, raising middle-class taxes, and eliminating oil and natural gas,” he said. “The flip-flopping and the apologizing — it’s insane.”

In the past, Biden made two previous attempts at running for president.

In 1988, he ran unsuccessfully in a primary that was ultimately won by then-Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis. In 2008 he ran again but the Democratic Party nomination ultimately went to then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., who chose Biden as his running mate.

Earlier Thursday, former Obama adviser David Axelrod claimed the report of a scaled-back campaign schedule was a troubling development for the ex-vice president.

“This is bad advice. You can’t cloister the candidate and win,” Axelrod tweeted.

MSNBC reporter says manager told her to not ‘look too Latina,’ dress like Ivanka Trump

An MSNBC correspondent claims in a new book that a female network manager asked her to not “look too Latina” and to dress like Ivanka Trump for the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Mariana Atencio, who works for MSNBC and NBC, wrote in her book, “Perfectly You: Embracing the Power of Being Real,” that she received a phone call from the unnamed manager as she prepared for a flight to the 2017 dinner, asking her what she planned to wear to the event, The Washington Post reported.

“It was a weird phone call — with an even weirder request, Atencio wrote. “‘Why do you ask?’ I replied. ‘Please don’t look too Latina.’ At first I thought I didn’t hear correctly. ‘I beg your pardon?’ I asked. ‘When you pick your outfit, I mean. Don’t look too Latina.’

Atencio, a Venezuelan immigrant, claimed the manager suggested she go to Saks for help styling her outfit.

“‘Have them pick out something demure. Not too colorful or tight. Think Ivanka Trump, okay? Let me know if you run into any trouble. Bye,’” the manager said, according to Atencio.

She wrote that her self-esteem and identity suffered from the insensitive phone call, The Post reported.

She said she wore the “Ivanka-type gown” that was suggested by her stylist at Saks but she was “miserable” the whole time.

Atencio wrote she didn’t confront the manager about the incident, but several months later she said she told the manager to “shut up about stuff that doesn’t impact the product” when the woman criticized her for wearing red lipstick.

In a statement, MSNBC wrote, “That’s obviously a highly inappropriate and unacceptable comment. More than a year and a half later, when it was first brought to a manager’s attention, immediate action was taken.

Would Colbert invite Trump on his show again? ‘The quick answer would be no’

Westlake Legal Group Stephen-COlbert Would Colbert invite Trump on his show again?

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert said during an interview on CNN on Wednesday night that he would not invite President Trump back onto his show, saying it would be hard for him to be “properly respectful of the office.”

“Would you want to have Trump on your show again?” CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked.

“The quick answer would be no,” Colbert said after a brief pause, “because it would be hard for me to be properly respectful of the office. Because I think that he is so disrespectful of the office that it’s very hard to perceive him as I would want to perceive a president in terms of their status and the dignity and the representation of the United States. So I think just for safety’s sake, it wouldn’t be a good idea.”

Colbert previously had then-candidate Trump on his show in September 2015 during the GOP primary period.

During the interview, the “Late Show” host explained why he had called Trump a “heretic to reality.”

“As a raised Catholic, the greatest sin is actually heresy because it’s not only are you astray from the right path, you’re inviting, you’re encouraging other people to come with you on that path,” the CBS star told Cooper. “He, our president, wants to live in a fantasy world where only the way he perceives the world is the way it is, the only things that serve his vision, and he’s trying to convince us that it’s the only world that exists. … He is not appealing to the better angels of our nature.”

Kamala Harris slammed for ‘politicizing’ Philadelphia standoff

Sen. Kamala Harris faced criticism Wednesday for promoting her campaign’s gun control plan during an appearance on CNN that coincided with breaking news about the police standoff in Philadelphia in which six officers were shot.

“When will it stop?” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate from California asked CNN’s Wolf Blitzer when he asked for her reaction to the initial reports of the shooting.

“And I stress initial reports,” Blitzer added.

As Harris related details of her plan, information about the ongoing standoff was still sketchy.

HOURS-LONG ORDEAL ENDS IN PHILADELPHIA AFTER 6 OFFICERS WOUNDED; HOSTAGES FREED

Social media was quick to deride the presidential candidate for “politicizing” the developing situation before most of the relevant facts were known.

“After only one (1) hour Kamala Harris started talking gun control to Wolf Blizer BEFORE the Philadelphia Police had the shooter in Philadelphia out yet or BEFORE all the cops were OUT of their respective hospital yet ! I know that Harris wants to be the President but hey wait,” one person wrote.

HARRIS, WARREN FACT-CHECKED ON CLAIM MICHAEL BROWN WAS MURDERED

“Why in the world did you come out with your political statements on CNN during the standoff of police and a madman shooter in Philadelphia?? How stupid and irresponsible of you,” another tweeted.

‘You used this as a political tool while bullets were flying and two officers were trapped in the house. Just disgusting. I’m from Philadelphia, we see it real clearly,” another criticized.

One Twitter user suggested her statements weren’t worthy of a president.

“Before the facts come out you took the opportunity to pre-judge the shooter in Philadelphia … You have no clue about the gun or individual. Definitely not Presidential.”

“BEFORE IT’S EVEN RESOLVED YOUR POLITICIZING THE PHILADELPHIA SHOOTER,” another wrote.

The shooter, identified as Maurice Hill, 36, who has an extensive history of gun-related convictions.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross told reporters two officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant when the shooter opened fire at the home.

All of the wounded officers were expected to recover.

Epstein accuser’s lawyer: Ghislaine Maxwell was a ‘principal conspirator’ in alleged sex-trafficking ring

Westlake Legal Group Ghislaine-Maxwell-Jeffrey-Epstein-1-Getty Epstein accuser's lawyer: Ghislaine Maxwell was a 'principal conspirator' in alleged sex-trafficking ring fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz cf6e79e1-79e9-5a7f-ba35-d99a01d7bbea article

Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged former “madam” Ghislaine Maxwell was a key figure in trafficking young girls to the financier, according to one accuser’s lawyer.

Jennifer Araoz’s attorney Dan Kaiser claimed Wednesday on “The Story” Maxwell must be held accountable for her alleged role.

“Justice begins now for her,” Kaiser said of his client. “That’s why she filed a lawsuit today. She is fully intending to see this through to the end.”

JEFFREY EPSTEIN ACCUSER SUES GHISLAINE MAXWELL, 3 OTHERS; SAYS EPSTEIN ‘FORCEFULLY RAPED’ HER AT 15

In response, host Martha MacCallum asked whether Araoz, now 32, has ever met the British socialite and media heiress.

Kaiser said Araoz had not met Maxwell but claims she had an important role in Epstein’s alleged criminal transgressions.

More from media

“Ms. Maxwell was one of the principal conspirators in the human sex trafficking ring,” the attorney said.

Much of the focus going forward should be on her, “because of her [Maxwell’s] efforts, because of her perpetuation of this ring, through her administratively handling this operation, by maintaining the pipeline of girls to Mr. Epstein,” Kaiser also claimed.

The latest lawsuit, which many analysts expect to be the first of many civil cases involving Epstein’s estate and former acquaintances, accuses the disgraced financier of “forcefully” raping Araoz at his Manhattan townhome in 2002. Araoz told NBC News last month that she told Epstein repeatedly to stop and that he “knew exactly what he was doing.”

Earlier Wednesday, Fox News obtained Araoz’s lawsuit, which claims Maxwell conspired to facilitate her alleged rape.

The suit’s defendants include Epstein’s estate, Maxwell and Jane Does 1, 2 and 3, a trio later described as a “recruiter,” a “secretary” and a “maid.”

Kaiser told Fox News that Araoz has not yet been able to identify the alleged “recruiter.”
