CNN’s Don Lemon taunts Trump while touring new studio: Only a ‘real billionaire’ can afford this space

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-0f7e272d663d43d28f5fa4167a77fa3f CNN's Don Lemon taunts Trump while touring new studio: Only a 'real billionaire' can afford this space Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 83fc91a1-2423-51a5-950c-c740d7ed1dd7

CNN anchor Don Lemon took a shot at President Trump as he was giving his colleague Chris Cuomo a brief tour of the new studio, suggesting that the president can’t afford such a large space since he isn’t a “real billionaire.”

The liberal news network is currently in the middle of a major transition from its New York City headquarters on Columbus Circle to the newly-built studio in Hudson Yards and over the past several weeks CNN’s NYC-based programming has been slowly migrating to the new location.

And during their nightly handoff on Monday, the “CNN Tonight” host offered Cuomo a glimpse of the new digs.

“I’ve got to tell you something,” Lemon said to Cuomo. “I moved.”

Lemon joked that he “actually lives here” before walking up an on-set staircase, where he said a kitchen and a bathroom were located on the upper level.

“Isn’t it beautiful?” Lemon asked.

“Do you know how much an apartment of that size would cost in this city?” Cuomo asked.

“No! Who could afford it?” Lemon responded. “The only person who could afford an apartment like this, maybe, well, it wouldn’t be Trump. It would be someone who’s actually a real billionaire.”

Lemon and Cuomo both chuckled

Lemon blasted Trump last week shortly after The New York Times published its story about the real estate mogul’s major losses in the 1980s and early 90s, calling him the “conman-in-chief” and a “fraud.”

‘Trump, the clean-up man’: Ingraham says president ‘wisely using tariffs’ to ‘punish China’

Westlake Legal Group laura-Ingraham-FOX- 'Trump, the clean-up man': Ingraham says president 'wisely using tariffs' to 'punish China' fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article aed529c4-198f-5e90-92dc-c9d985c9c629 /FOX NEWS/WORLD/GLOBAL ECONOMY/Trade

In her “Ingraham Angle” monologue on Monday, Laura Ingraham said President Trump is effectively the “clean-up man” for past presidents who may have been too wary to take a hard line against China on trade policy.

Ingraham noted that the Chinese government “retaliated” against Trump’s 25 percent increase on tariffs on some Chinese goods by threatening to hike tariffs on 5,000 U.S. products.

She dismissed criticisms from some Democrats and members of the media who panned Trump’s decision.

“Presidents since George Washington have recognized the power and importance of tariffs to protect American interests,” she said. “Facing China’s gross trade abuses… Trump is wisely using tariffs to punish China for bad behavior.”

US-CHINA TRADE TALKS END WITH NO DEAL, BUT TRUMP PUTS FAITH IN ‘STRONG’ RELATIONSHIP WITH XI

She continued, “With Trump in the White House, China knows that the days of exploiting the American market with impunity are over.”

Ingraham played video from January 2000, when then-President Bill Clinton urged China’s entry into the World Trade Organization.

US TRADE GAP JUMPED TO 10-YEAR-HIGH; RECORD GAP WITH CHINA

“This agreement is a good deal for America,” Clinton said at the time.

“Well, Trump is basically now the clean-up man for presidents and politicians who did nothing about China, virtually nothing, for decades,” Ingraham said, adding that the goods-and-services deficit with China in 2018 was several hundred billion dollars – and a hefty increase from the time before China entered the WTO.

“With all we know now about how China operates… there is a legitimate question to ask. Why are we trading with them at all? They are a geopolitical adversary who intends to destroy… freedom. They want to dominate,” Ingraham said.

‘Not looking good’ for Comey, Rosenstein ‘absolutely right to slam’ ex-FBI director, Hannity says

Westlake Legal Group James-Comey-Reuters 'Not looking good' for Comey, Rosenstein 'absolutely right to slam' ex-FBI director, Hannity says fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/tech/topics/fbi fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc d82b0921-851a-5d09-bfa0-92110d01148b Charles Creitz article

Sean Hannity said in his “Hannity” Opening Monologue on Monday that former FBI Director James Comey “abused his power” and that there has been “mounting” evidence to that effect.

Hannity said Comey signed off on one of four Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications that sought authorization to conduct surveillance on President Trump’s then-campaign adviser Carter Page.

The decision was detailed in a memo released by the House Intelligence Committee in February 2018, an act that Comey subsequently criticized as “dishonest and misleading.”

The memo stated that on October 21, 2016, the Justice Department and the FBI “sought and received” a FISA probable cause order authorizing “electronic surveillance” on Carter Page from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Hannity said that the circumstances surrounding the FISA warrant applications were suspicious.

“Comey abused his power. The evidence against him is mounting,” Hannity said.

He said anti-Trump dossier source Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent, reportedly “hated then-candidate Trump and was willing to do anything to take him down.”

Hannity criticized Comey for using Steele’s dossier as part of the “predicate” for the FISA warrant.

Hannity added that, in a speech in Baltimore, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein responded to Comey’s critiques of his own personal character.

ROD ROSENSTEIN QUOTES ROBERT MUELLER IN COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS

Rosenstein told the audience that he didn’t blame Comey for being “angry,” but that the ex-lawman “seems to be acting as a partisan pundit – selling books, earning speaking fees while speculating about the strength of my character and the fate of my immortal soul.”

“Rod Rosenstein is absolutely right to slam the former disgraced FBI director,” Hannity said.

“It’s not looking good for Mr. Super-Patriot Jim Comey,” he added. “He was a terrible FBI director.”

Hannity said that a “damning shadow” was being cast over him.

Steyn on Alyssa Milano’s ‘sex strike’: Attempts at ‘woke-ness’ taking us back to ‘dank slumbers of 60 years ago’

Westlake Legal Group GettyImages-1078617590 Steyn on Alyssa Milano's 'sex strike': Attempts at 'woke-ness' taking us back to 'dank slumbers of 60 years ago' fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/georgia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/politics fnc dfe195e8-28f1-59b4-9880-85a00ce99e53 Charles Creitz article

Author Mark Steyn reacted Monday to actress Alyssa Milano’s “sex strike” – launched in opposition to a new Georgia law that bans abortion after a baby’s heartbeat is detected.

Steyn said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that until this point, many pro-choice advocates made claims to the effect of “abstinence education doesn’t work, so we have to have abortion [rights].”

ALYSSA MILANO OPENS UP ABOUT HER FRIENDSHIP WITH JOE BIDEN AMID BACKLASH FOR DEFENDING MISCONDUCT ALLEGATIONS

“But abstinence apparently does work when Alyssa Milano is commanding it,” he remarked.

“We just cannot risk pregnancy. Join me by not having sex,” he said, paraphrasing a recent tweet by Milano.

“So, on the day that Doris Day dies, we are basically back to the sexual morality of Doris Day. “Young at Heart,” circa 1954, in which Hollywood actresses now are promoting chasteness because the risk of pregnancy from having sex is too high. ‘Woke-ness’ eventually brings you back to the same dank slumbers of 60 years ago. It’s amazing,” Steyn continued.

Day died early Monday at the age of 97.

Steyn said that the response from pro-choice activists to the new law in the Peach State was a “very weird reaction to public policy” that is “a lot more draconian than just trying to win a few elections in Georgia.”

Georgia is one of several states in recent weeks that have passed legislation forbidding doctors from ending pregnancies when a heartbeat can be detected, which is roughly at six weeks.

KERRY MADE ‘TERRIBLE MISTAKE’ TALKING WITH IRANIANS, BUT LOGAN ACT PROBE ‘PROBABLY OVERKILL’, JOE LIEBERMAN SAYS

Critics of such legislation have argued that many women don’t discover that they’re pregnant in six weeks.

The entertainment industry, in particular, is wrestling over the Georgia law because many films and TV shows are made in the state due to its widely popular tax incentives.

Finding the Bright Side: Shannon Bream interviews ‘personal hero’ husband ahead of new book release

To celebrate the release of her new book, “Finding the Bright Side: The Art of Chasing What Matters,” Fox News anchor Shannon Bream interviewed the “personal heroes” who have played a big role in her life – the first of whom is her husband, Sheldon.

Shannon Bream, host of “Fox News @ Night,” asked Sheldon about the time their relationship began.

“After our first date, I went back and told my roommates I was going to marry you,” said Sheldon. “Did they think you were crazy?” Shannon asked.

“No, because they knew you,” he said.

Shannon asked Sheldon about some of the tougher times in their lives, such as the period just before their wedding.

Sheldon said that time was “doubly tough” for him because his father had recently passed away, and he had undergone brain surgery after being diagnosed with a tumor.

He credited his “great support system” – Shannon, his mother, and his extended family – for getting him through that tough time.

“The Breams are pretty amazing,” Shannon remarked.

In her book, “Finding the Bright Side: The Art of Chasing What Matters,” Bream shares a deeply personal examination on finding purpose and growth amid life’s unpredictability.

Bream also opens up about her strict childhood, her years in law school, her experience participating in pageants like Miss America, her former Marine and police officer father and her mother, whom she affectionately refers to as the “Meanest Mom in the World.”

She also spoke about the book on “Fox & Friends” Monday, saying that her faith is similarly paramount in her life.

In that interview, she recalled the “winding path” she took to make it to the anchor chair at Fox News, and how her faith and her family helped support her along the way.

Read an excerpt of the book, and get your copy when it goes on sale Tuesday.

Kerry made ‘terrible mistake’ talking with Iranians, but Logan Act probe ‘probably overkill’, Joe Lieberman says

Westlake Legal Group Joe-Lieberman-FoxNews Kerry made 'terrible mistake' talking with Iranians, but Logan Act probe 'probably overkill', Joe Lieberman says fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3f3c8382-c13e-5d9b-b46b-acb4dc8e8cd1

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman said Monday on “Your World” that former Secretary of State John Kerry made a “terrible mistake” when he spoke last year with Iranian officials.

Lieberman, who also served Connecticut in the U.S. Senate as both a Democrat and later an Independent, added that calls for Kerry to be prosecuted under the Logan Act are “probably overkill.”

“I thought that John Kerry made a terrible mistake in talking to the foreign minister of Iran – almost giving him advice about how to deal with the Trump administration, which is at odds with Iran,” Lieberman told host Neil Cavuto.

“It’s the wrong thing to do. We have one secretary of state at a time.”

Lieberman said President Trump “did the right thing” in removing the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly nicknamed the “Iran Deal.”

Lieberman said that investigating or prosecuting Kerry may be ill-advised because the former Massachusetts senator still has his “freedom of speech.”

“He can say whatever he wants publicly about what the president did with the Iran nuclear agreement,” Lieberman said, maintaining that Kerry’s contact with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was still a “bad move.”

Lieberman said that going after Kerry on a Logan Act violation would “probably [be] overkill” but that the debate “establishes a principle.”

TRUMP SAYS JOHN KERRY ‘SHOULD BE PROSECUTED’ FOR IRAN CONTACTS

“It’s an important principle for the conduct of our foreign policy and, respectfully, John Kerry violated that principle, which makes a lot of sense,” he said.

“To think about prosecuting him, we ought to just let it go,” he said.

Lieberman said Kerry should consider how he would feel if former Secretaries of State Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell acted in a similar manner to his overtures.

Last week, President Trump accused  Kerry of breaking the law by meeting with Iranian officials last year — and went so far as to say he should be prosecuted under the Logan Act.

“You know John Kerry speaks to them a lot, and John Kerry tells them not to call. That’s a violation of the Logan Act, and frankly he should be prosecuted on that,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“But my people don’t want to do anything, only the Democrats do that kind of stuff. If it were the opposite way, they’d prosecute him under the Logan Act,” he said.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza mocked for ‘analysis’ pairing 2020 Dems to ‘Game of Thrones’ characters

Westlake Legal Group ciz-got CNN's Chris Cillizza mocked for 'analysis' pairing 2020 Dems to 'Game of Thrones' characters Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment/game-of-thrones fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 8cd88951-b8aa-516d-b5b9-947a8fed24ec

CNN editor-at-large Chris Cillizza was the subject of ridicule over his “analysis” that paired the Democratic candidates running for president in 2020 to characters from the HBO hit series “Game of Thrones.”

“What else… has lots of characters and drama with an uncertain ending? (Amazing segue, right???) Why, the 2020 Democratic presidential primary campaign, of course!” Cillizza wrote, later adding a disclaimer that many of the “Game of Thrones” characters are “murderers” and “horrible people,” uring readers that they “shouldn’t take this literally.”

Cillizza matched former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with Jaime Lannister (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), arguing that both were “born to do this” and struggled with “deeper internal conflict about who they are and whether they are doing the right thing.” He then matched former Vice President Joe Biden with “Game of Thrones” villainess Cersei Lannister (played by Lena Headey), insisting they were both “de facto incumbents” and that they “know their enemies are coming for them.”

He paired California Sen. Kamala Harris with the Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) because they both “have lived up to the hype” but pointed to the potential fear that they “represent too much change for a staid world.” South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg was paired with Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) since they were previously “unheralded and ignored” but are now “the axis on which the story spins.”

FANS SAY ‘GAME OF THRONES’ HAS ANOTHER EDITING BLUNDER BUT HBO EXPLAINS ERROR NEVER MADE IT TO AIR

Other notable matchups include Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Arya Stark (played by Maisie Williams), California Rep. Eric Swalwell and Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (played by Aidan Gillen), Massachsetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Brienne of Tarth (played by Gwendoline Christie), and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Maester Aemon Targaryen (played by Peter Vaughan, who passed away in 2016).

The analysis, which was published Sunday hours before the penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones” aired that night, was ratio’d on Twitter, meaning it received more replies than likes and retweets.

Many ripped Cillizza’s piece, suggesting it is proof that journalism is “dying.”

Journalist Yashar Ali blasted Cillizza, suggesting the political reporter is being overpaid for writing “drivel.”

“Here’s why his stuff gets views: they put his stuff on the front page which is in the top 30 websites in US.. Anything will get views. They give him push alerts, so every CNN mobile user is alerted when his stuff posts,” Ali tweeted. “Don’t put his pieces on the front page of CNN, don’t give him a push alert for a month, see where his numbers go.

Former Rep. Issa: Schiff knows he’s been ‘disingenuous’ about Trump-Russia claims

Former Rep. Darrell Issa said Monday on “Outnumbered Overtime” that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff knows he was “disingenuous” when he claimed he had evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia.

Issa claimed that rather than admit the fact, his fellow Californian is instead pivoting and working toward the “destruction of the president.”

“The Trump administration has decided to say a blanket ‘no’ to any kind of oversight whatsoever. No witnesses, no documents, no nothing,” Schiff, a Democrat, said in an ABC News interview on Sunday.

Schiff claimed Trump is asserting executive privilege power over things “he knows there is no basis for.”

“We are going to fight it. We are fighting it,” he said.

Issa said that Schiff failed to produce evidence the president colluded with Russian actors in regard to his 2016 election victory and is now badgering the administration.

“Instead, he has shifted to the destruction of the president,” Issa said, adding that it is important for the public to understand that Congress’ oversight ability does not come from the Constitution.

“We have it because of the necessity to know that’s in order to legislate. As a result, the courts have always held that there has to be a legislative purpose,” Issa said, adding that House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal’s, D-Mass., ongoing attempts to acquire Trump’s tax returns do not meet that standard.

Host Harris Faulkner noted that Neal recently subpoenaed Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig for the documents.

Issa said some of the Democrats’ actions echo the “Bills of Attainder” used by leaders like English King Henry VIII in the 1500s.

Issa said that the king passed laws targeting an individual or a group rather than the public at-large.

“That is exactly what’s happening,” he said. “This [effort] to demand ten years of the president’s tax records, it’s not about the next president, it’s about this president.”
