Dan Gainor: In Trump impeachment coverage, anti-Trump media embrace Democratic hero

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6125942920001_6125943012001-vs Dan Gainor: In Trump impeachment coverage, anti-Trump media embrace Democratic hero fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/opinion fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc Dan Gainor article 02ba417b-59f4-5760-b3cd-f23d360ee18a

The anti-Trump media are sparing no effort to proclaim their love for their hero in the Trump impeachment drama – House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

As the lead House manager in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial now underway, Schiff’s lengthy assault on the president has drawn so many positive comments that Trump haters in the media are straining to find synonyms for “brilliant” as they heap praise on him. It’s a wonder they aren’t calling for his likeness to be added to Mount Rushmore.

No news organization has praised Schiff more than CNN. It’s probably not even possible. The combined network team dropped the word “very” 11 different times during one impeachment trial break to underscore how very, very much they loved his presentation.

TUCKER CARLSON MOCKS ‘ST. ADAM’ SCHIFF’S PERFORMANCE AT SENATE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

“Situation Room” anchor Wolf Blitzer said Schiff gave “a very, very powerful and forceful speech” and made “a very, very strong case.”

“The Lead” anchor Jake Tapper described what Schiff was “very forcefully saying.” Tapper also noted Schiff’s speech was “a very factually based argument” and “very long, two and a half hours.”

Yay, verily.

More from Opinion

CNN analyst Joe Lockhart, who was White House press secretary when President Bill Clinton was impeached and has worked for many Democratic politicians, tried a different strategy. He made news the old-fashioned, fake way.

Lockhart tweeted about a supposed discussion between Republican senators where one said of the Democratic accusations against Trump: “I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up s—– creek.”

That post received more than 10,000 retweets and 42,000 likes. But Lockhart followed it up a few minutes later, admitting: “OK maybe I made up the convo, but you know that’s exactly what they’re thinking.”

Lockhart was slammed for what he later termed a “joke.” The Babylon Bee response struck home: “Leave the satire to us; we’ll leave the fake news to you.”

ABC tried a similar hype strategy. Senior National Correspondent Terry Moran could barely contain himself as he oohed and aahed about Schiff’s “senatorial eloquence” or his “meticulous” nature and the argument he made in “classic legal fashion.”

Washington Post theoretical “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin also used “meticulous,” to which she added “brilliant.”

Former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter made it sound like Schiff was ready to hold a concert on PBS. He declared: “I think it’ll go down as one of the great performances.”

Both “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski praised Schiff for “a virtuoso performance.”

Perhaps future Schiff speeches will get their own soundtrack or win a Grammy.

Schiff was even compared to Daniel Webster, who went down in history as one of the great Senate orators. Esquire writer Charles P. Pierce said Schiff “was playing in the same league as Webster was 190 years ago.”

And Slate’s Tom Socca said that Schiff and his team have “all the facts and principles on their side.” To address that, Team Trump “had nothing to counter them with but nonsense and lies. Nonsense, lies, and 53 votes.” That number is key and Slate’s “Impeach-O-Meter” only gave Trump a “0.5% Chance of Removal.”

Congress and the National Press Club better stock up on Teddy Bears and Scotch for when this fiasco is over. Because the media and the left are going to need them both.

Don Lemon’s assault accuser says CNN anchor a ‘liar and hypocrite’ with #MeToo coverage

The man suing CNN host Don Lemon for assault says his claim isn’t being taken seriously because it doesn’t fit the mainstream media’s #MeToo movement narrative.

Dustin Hice filed an explosive lawsuit against Lemon – who is openly gay — last year, accusing the “CNN Tonight” host of a sexually charged assault.

Hice told Fox News the alleged “vile, disgusting, lewd and inhumane” attack would be treated much differently if he were a woman.

MAN SAYS HE WITNESSED CNN HOST DON LEMON’S ALLEGED ASSAULT: ‘I WAS KIND OF MAKING FUN, I FEEL BAD NOW’

“[Lemon] put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache and under Plaintiff’s nose,” according to the lawsuit, filed Aug. 11, 2019 in Suffolk County Court.

Lemon offered a six-figure settlement before talks broke down and the formal complaint was filed, according to Hice.

“I’m not doing this for notoriety or fame, I’m doing this because I’m standing up for myself and what I believe in,” Hice told Fox News. “I’ve grown a new respect for people dealing with mental health issues because stress, depression, anxiety, those are all very serious things. It consumed my life.”

CNN did not respond to a series of questions from Fox News, including a request for comment regarding Hice’s claim that Lemon offered him a six-figure settlement.

Lemon was served with the complaint Wednesday. The case was moving to discovery, according to a source close to Hice’s legal team.

CNN did not immediately respond with a comment regarding the complaint being served.

TRUMP MOCKS CNN’S CHRIS CUOMO OVER VIRAL VIDEO: ‘I THOUGHT CHRIS WAS FREDO ALSO’

Lemon, through CNN, previously vehemently denied Hice’s allegations, and has continued to host “CNN Tonight.”

“I’ve grown a little skeptical of the news after what’s happened to me, nobody acknowledges it anymore,” Hice said. “The hypocrisy, he is a black, gay, liberal and supposed #MeToo advocate but when it doesn’t fit their narrative, or it’s one of their own, they don’t even address it.”

Lemon allegedly asked a crude question about Hice’s sexual preference during the physical confrontation, leaving him “shocked and humiliated,” according to the suit. The alleged incident occurred at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern, in the prestigious Hamptons area east of New York City in July 2018.

CNN initially denied Hice’s account and said Hice seemed to bear animosity toward the cable news network. But, Hice said he didn’t watch much CNN, with the exception of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” before the alleged incident and had no reason to trash the network.

Last year, the New York Post cited a “source close to Lemon” who said Hice asked for $1.5 million in exchange for not filing the lawsuit. Hice admitted that $1.5 million was a figure discussed during settlement talks but said it’s only part of the story.

“They painted me as trying to extort $1.5 million from him but they never mentioned that he offered many times over six figures to settle. He tried to make payments on that and I said, ‘No thank you,’” Hice said. “I think that when he went to CNN and [denied the accusations], he probably failed to mention that he offered me well over six figures in the settlement process.”

While Hice wasn’t particularly opinionated about CNN before the alleged incident, he has since paid close attention to Lemon’s show.

“I don’t want to see his face on the news anymore because he’s a blatant liar and hypocrite,” Hice said, pointing to a Sept. 2018 segment when Lemon discussed the various ways victims of sexual harassment dealt with the aftermath and trauma.

“It was only two months after he assaulted me,” Hice said. “This is something that I’m going to be healing from and recovering from for the rest of my life.”

Hice said he didn’t want to take the spotlight away from female victims of abuse and said he developed a strong sympathy for anyone going through similar struggles.

“The media has labeled me as an ‘accuser,’ as opposed to a ‘victim,’ just because I’m a male,” he said. “I’ve been struggling, but there is a lot of people that have gone through a lot worse things than somebody rubbing their genitals and putting it in your face, as disgusting and vile as that is. There are people that have been raped and worse.”

CNN’S DON LEMON ACCUSED OF ASSAULT IN SEXUALLY-CHARGED ENCOUNTER AT NEW YORK BAR

Hice said he took a polygraph test with a former FBI profiler to prove to people close to him that he’s telling the truth.

“I passed with flying colors, this guy hooked me up to this whole machine, it was nerve-wracking but I just wanted to prove that I’m not lying,” Hice said. “Witnesses saw this happen. The whole town of Sag Harbor knew.”

Last year, when the suit initially was filed, Fox News spoke with George Gounelas, one of the witnesses named in the suit who was Hice’s boss at the time of the alleged incident.

Hice approached Lemon to strike up a conversation but the newsman declined, according to Gounelas, who said he and Hice then offered to buy Lemon a drink, which the CNN host also declined.

Hice told Fox News he simply wanted to be able to share a story of taking a shot with the CNN host and was not hostile, confrontational or looking for trouble.

“He took offense to it, or took it as me flirting, and that’s when he decided he’s above the law and can do whatever the hell he wanted,” Hice said.

CNN’S DON LEMON VOWS TO ‘LEAN IN HARDER’ ON NEWS COVERAGE IN 2020: ‘I’M READY TO FIGHT’

Gounelas said that a few moments later, Lemon came up to them.

“Don Lemon has now come around the corner and is standing face to face with us. There is a beam, a pole, in the place. Don’s standing up against the pole, face to face with Dustin, I turn around and I’m standing right there between the two of them,” Gounelas said. “He’s saying, ‘So, you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me?’”

Gounelas told Fox News he couldn’t recall what Lemon said verbatim, but it was “along the lines of, ‘Do you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me, because you wanna f— me?’”

Gounelas said Lemon appeared “pretty drunk” when he confronted the duo.

“He put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers and, like, clipped Dustin’s nose up and down with two fingers asking ‘do you like p—- or d—?’” Gounelas said.

Gounelas also said he laughed during the alleged incident and immediately mocked Hice as “gross” because of Lemon’s alleged actions – but Hice didn’t think it was a laughing matter.

“Dustin was in this shock mode, saying, ‘Bro, did that just happen? That was disgusting,’” Gounelas said, noting that the story followed Hice. “Every time we went out, every bartender offered him a lemon drop shot, making fun of him. He got some sh– for it.”

“The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts,” a CNN spokesperson told Fox News in a statement when the suit was first filed last year. “This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon.”

“Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time,” the CNN spokesperson added last year.

Murkowski says she called Trump to reassure she doesn’t ‘hate’ him

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said she called President Trump last fall to reassure him she doesn’t “hate” him, according to a report.

Murkowski said she decided to phone the president shortly after reading about remarks he made about her at a November event. “He was just kind of off the cuff and he said, ‘I don’t know, I think Lisa Murkowski hates me. I kind of like her,’” Murkowski told the Anchorage Daily News Saturday.

She said she told Trump during the call that while she sometimes disagrees with him, “I don’t hate you. I don’t hate anybody, but I don’t hate you,” the Daily News reported.

The president was gracious to her, she said. “He was so sweet, he says: ‘Oh, that’s so nice,’” she told the Daily News.

On the call, Murkowski said she also discussed issues important to Alaska for several minutes.

She told the paper that policy disagreements are a fact of legislating, but that it’s important to keep positive professional relationships.

Murkowski has at times clashed legislatively with Trump, most prominently when she was the only Republican senator to vote against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In late 2019, when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News he would be leading a “full and fair process” but still “coordinating” with the White House team for the impeachment trial, Murkowski said that she was “disturbed” by the news.

“To me, it means that we have to take that step back from being hand in glove with the defense, and so I heard what leader McConnell had said, I happened to think that that has further confused the process,” she told KTUU-TV last month.

Bloomberg willing to spend ‘whatever it takes’ in 2020 White House bid: campaign manager

Westlake Legal Group AP20019758958515 Bloomberg willing to spend 'whatever it takes' in 2020 White House bid: campaign manager Louis Casiano fox-news/shows/fox-news-reporting fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 19d83aea-2688-5cf2-8f17-a7e34c165a03

Democratic presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg is willing to “spend whatever it takes” to get his message out and broaden his support to secure the party’s nomination, campaign manager Kevin Sheekey told Fox News’ “Bill Hemmer Reports” on Monday.

During Monday’s interview, Hemmer questioned Sheekey over how much of Bloomberg’s own money the former New York City mayor is willing to spend to unseat President Trump.

“Fox Business headline here it is and it’s big one: ‘Two billion reasons Bloomberg could unseat Trump,'” Hemmer said. “Is he willing to go deep, two billion, or is that just a headline?”

BLOOMBERG, IN OKLAHOMA, PUSHES PLAN TO FIGHT RACIAL INCOME INEQUALITY

“Mike’s view is, ‘Hey I want to spend whatever it takes to put myself in a position to make a difference,'” Sheekey responded,” before touting Bloomberg’s record as the three-term mayor of America’s largest city.

“He was able to make an enormous difference in New York through three terms as mayor,” Sheekey added. “There’s no one who doesn’t say that he didn’t bring this city back from 9/11, that he didn’t improve education, that he didn’t make the streets safer, that he didn’t rebuild the economy of New York after the worst tragedy ever to occur on American soil.”

In an earlier segment on the show, Hemmer interviewed Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, who said he wasn’t worried about Bloomberg’s candidacy until he outpolls the likes of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg

“Brad is not running a national campaign,” Sheekey responded. “Brad is running a campaign in six states… and right now if the election was held, I think President Trump is re-elected and that’s one of the reasons Mike Bloomberg got into this campaign.”

BLOOMBERG PANS DEMOCRATIC FIELD FOR FAILING TO ADDRESS ISSUES, SAYS HE ‘DIDN’T LEARN ANYTHING’

Bloomberg, a former Republican, will skip key nominating contests in Iowa and New Hampshire to focus on California and other states in an effort to broaden Democratic support.

“We’ve allowed two states, Iowa and New Hampshire, to pick our nominee… to the exclusion of people around the country,” Sheekey said. “So Mike Bloomberg has said ‘What if we actually got everyone involved… what if we actually empowered people to play a role in this campaign and what if we got the ideas?'”

Hemmer pointed put that when Bloomberg’s predecessor as mayor, Rudy Giuliani, tried the same strategy during his failed White House bid in 2008, it backfired.

“When he skipped Iowa and he showed up in New Hampshire, reporters were not asking him, ‘What is your campaign about?’ They were asking him, ‘Where have you been?'” Hemmer said.

Sheekey dismissed the comparison, noting that Giuliani focused mostly on Florida, while Bloomberg has volunteers campaigning across 36 states on his behalf.

Hemmer then asked whether Bloomberg will divest himself from his media empire, Bloomberg Media Group, and other assets should he be elected in 2020.

“So if he’s the nominee it’s billionaire versus billionaire. And we’ve seen President Trump break the rules of precedent of the past. Does Michael Bloomberg plan to do the same?” asked Hemmer.

“No, I think Mike Bloomberg is the candidate that can take Donald Trump on and take this country in the right direction. I don’t think there’s another candidate in the Democratic primary that can do that,” Sheekey said. “Mike has said that if he was elected, he would take that company and all of his assets and put it in a blind trust.”

The Fox News Rundown podcast: “From Selling Drugs to Selling Ice Cream” – Strive is a not-for-profit organization that has spent over three decades helping people in low-income communities learn the skills necessary for getting and keeping jobs. One of their many success stories is Roy Castro. With the help of Strive and a mentor, Roy went from a life of selling drugs and multiple prisons stints to running his own multi-million dollar ice cream company.

On the Fox News Rundown, Dana Perino, host of Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing” tells Castro’s story by talking to his mentor, Strive President and CEO Philip Weinberg, Goldman Sachs partner Dina Powell McCormick and Roy Castro himself.

Also on the Rundown: The Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal has rocked the world of baseball and started a national debate over whether decoding the unspoken cues exchanged by the opposing team’s pitchers and catchers is cheating or just “gamesmanship”. The debate has even divided the Fox News Radio newsroom. We break down “the fourth wall,” as host Chris Foster talks to his fellow Rundown host Dave Anthony and Fox News Headlines 24/7 sports reporter Jared Max about the scandal and what this could mean for the future of the sport.

Plus, commentary by Democratic political analyst Mary Anne Marsh.

Democrats in the media are starting to see that the 2020 presidential election is going to be a “bloodbath” in favor of President TrumpJesse Watters said Saturday.

“The Democratic debate was awful,” he said on “Watters’ World,” referring to last week’s Democratic clash in Iowa. “Wait until Trump faces off against these guys. He’s going to chop them into pieces and he’s going to smile doing it. He’s even cockier and looser now than when he debated ‘Crooked.’”

Watters pointed to several progressives — the Rev. Al Sharpton, CNN’s Van Jones and filmmaker Michael Moore — who said couldn’t see any Democrats onstage at the debate who could beat Trump.

“I didn’t see anybody … that really said ‘I’m taking charge, I can be president,’” Sharpton, an MSNBC contributor, said after the debate.

“There was nothing I saw tonight that would be able to take Donald Trump out,” Jones echoed.

Moore had perhaps the most damning assessment.

“They will mark this day … as the day Donald Trump was reelected because once again the Democrats, the liberals, the left couldn’t get it together,” he predicted last week.

“When Sharpton, Van Jones and Michael Moore and I agree, it’s got to be true,” Watters said.

He added that Lev Parnas, the indicted Rudy Giuliani associate, is supposed to be the next “silver bullet” to take down the president. Parnas was interviewed by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow last week about evidence that allegedly shows a conspiracy to surveil former U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch in Ukraine

“This guy’s changed his story a dozen times, turns out he’s never even talked to Trump about Ukraine,” Watters said.

“The left [is] getting more desperate the more it looks like Trump will get reelected,” Watters said.
