AOC hits The Economist for linking celibacy to ‘female empowerment’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6029130941001_6029136886001-vs AOC hits The Economist for linking celibacy to 'female empowerment' Frank Miles fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 8005ea42-7dc3-5b6a-a670-5c3a2a233cd8

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., hit back Sunday at a magazine questioning the rise of a new wave of celibacy.

The Economist tweeted earlier in the day: “America is seeing a spike in celibacy [fueled] by economics, technology and female empowerment.”

The tweet linked to a story published last week, entitled: “No sex please, we’re millennials.”

The outspoken freshman congresswoman replied: “If you think your ‘celibacy’ is due to “female empowerment,” maybe it’s because far too many people relied on the disempowerment + silence of women to not be ‘celibate’ in the first place.”

The Economist didn’t respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

The #MeToo movement is empowering victims of sexual assault and harassment to speak up like never before, a watershed moment for holding assailants accountable.

The article aimed to figure out why “young people in America—as in Japan and some other rich countries—are having much less sex.”

It reported that the percentage of American between the ages of 18 and 29 who said they had not had sex in a year more than doubled over the last decade, reaching 23 percent last year.

Gowdy: ‘Saint James’ Comey thinks he ‘gets to write the moral script’

Westlake Legal Group James-Comey-AP Gowdy: 'Saint James' Comey thinks he 'gets to write the moral script' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc e9f15a42-f8b0-5baf-a82e-c091ed94280b Charles Creitz article

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy reacted Friday to former FBI Director James Comey’s appearance at a CNN town hall this week, saying that Comey believes he always “gets to write the moral script.”

“Saint James Comey,” Gowdy, R-S.C., said on “Hannity,” gave “pretty much the same as any other interview. He is always right. He gets to write the moral script.”

During the town hall, Comey said that people like outgoing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein are not of “strong character.”

“I think people like that, like Rod Rosenstein, who are people of accomplishment but not real sterling character, strong character, find themselves trapped. And then they start telling themselves a story to justify their being trapped which is, ‘Yeah, he’s awful but the country needs me,’” Comey told host Anderson Cooper.

JAMES COMEY BLASTS ROD ROSENSTEIN, MOCKS DEPARTYIN DEPUTY AG FOR THINKING ‘THE COUNTRY NEEDS ME’

During the event, Comey also told Cooper that he tried to avoid becoming like Rosenstein and other “co-opted” members of the administration by openly disagreeing with President Trump in the Oval Office.

Gowdy told host Jason Chaffetz that Comey seemingly believes he is correct, and “everybody else is wrong.”

“When I asked Jim Comey how did the Russia investigation get started, who started it, he didn’t know it was Peter Strzok, he never read the initiation document,” Gowdy said. “Comey refuses to believe that any of these decisions should be looked at, so he is always right.”

“He and [former Director of National Intelligence James] Clapper and [former CIA Director John] Brennan are validating the concerns that other people including the president have had about their objectivity by their comments and their demeanor after they left their offices,” Gowdy added.

CONCHA: SOME PRESS COVERING TRUMP’S LEAKED TAX RETURNS SHOWING ‘THE WORST KIND OF BIAS’

Gowdy said that if Comey had not been fired, he would still be “working for an administration he thinks is too good for impeachment.”

Chaffetz said that although he’s been critical of Rosenstein and his tenure, he found Comey’s comments inappropriate.

Gowdy added that Comey exhibited “moral arrogance” with the comments.

Don Lemon accuses Trump of trying to ‘rewrite inconvenient facts’ while defending son

CNN host Don Lemon accused President Trump on Thursday of trying to re-write history in order to defend his son after the Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenaed him as part of the ongoing Russia investigation.

“This is all about revisionist history, keep that in mind, the President trying to rewrite inconvenient facts,” Lemon said before playing a clip of Trump defending his son.

Trump, on Thursday, told reporters he was “surprised” by the committee’s subpoena and that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “exonerated” his son in the investigation.

“My son is a good person. He testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller who doesn’t like Trump, me,” Trump said.

According to Lemon, that was incorrect. “This is the fact: Donald Trump Jr. was not exonerated by Robert Mueller,” Lemon said. He went on to cite Mueller’s report which said it would be difficult for the government to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that Trump Jr. knew his conduct was unlawful during the controversial meeting at Trump Tower.

CNN’S DON LEMON AGREES US FACES ‘CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS,’ VIEWS TRUMP IMPEACHMENT AS ‘REMEDY’

He also disputed Trump’s assertion that Mueller said there was “essentially no obstruction” on the president’s part.

Mueller’s report, as Lemon noted, stopped short of concluding that Trump obstructed justice but also indicated that Congress would have enough evidence to warrant continued investigation.

“If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state,” the report read.

“Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment.”

Lemon also criticized Attorney General WIlliam Barr, arguing that he misrepresented the Mueller report findings when he released his own summary of it in March.

He was referring to the fact that Mueller told the Justice Department he took issue with the way Barr presented the findings. Mueller also clarified, however, that he didn’t mean to say that Barr’s summary was “inaccurate.”

Ben Shapiro says BBC host destroyed him, apologizes: ‘Broke my own rule… wasn’t properly prepared’

Ben Shapiro admitted on Friday he wasn’t prepared for a recent interview with BBC host Andrew Neil that resulted in the conservative star abruptly ending the segment.

“[Andrew Neil] DESTROYS Ben Shapiro! So that’s what that feels like 😉 Broke my own rule, and wasn’t properly prepared. I’ve addressed every single issue he raised before; see below. Still, it’s Neil 1, Shapiro 0,” Shapiro tweeted with a link to a Daily Wire article he penned detailing “all the dumb stuff” he’s ever done.

Shapiro appeared on the BBC to talk about his new book “The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great.” However, things didn’t go as planned when Neil — who often plays devil’s advocate with his guests — pressed on old comments Shapiro had made.

JAMES COMEY CAN’T DIG STRUGGLING CNN OUT OF RATINGS BASEMENT

Shortly after exchanging the pleasantries, Neil went on offense and drilled down on Shapiro’s views, asking the commentator whether the recent pro-life bill in Georgia is like bringing back the “Dark Ages” in the U.S.

Shapiro retaliated against Neil, a former editor of the Sunday Times and a chairman of a media group that includes right-leaning magazine The Spectator, and accused him of harboring left-wing views.

“You purport to be an objective journalist, BBC purports to be an objective, down the middle network,” Shapiro snapped. “It obviously is not, it never has been. And you as a journalist are proceeding to call one side of the political aisle ignorant, barbaric, and sending us back to the dark ages, why don’t you just say you’re on the left.”

“Mr. Shapiro, if you only knew how ridiculous that statement is you wouldn’t have said it,” Neil replied and went on to question Shapiro about comments he has made previously on abortion and transgender rights, as well as his remarks questioning the Jewishness of those voting for President Barack Obama — topics Shapiro addressed in his list of mistakes.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FEARS TRUMP MIGHT NOT LEAVE OFFICE IF HE LOSES IN 2020

Soon before the interview was put to a halt, Shapiro said Neil tried to go through and find “lone things that sound bad out of context” as a way to make “a quick buck on BBC off the fact that I’m popular and no one has ever heard of you.”

“This whole thing is a waste of time. Frankly, I don’t care — I don’t frankly give a damn what you think of me since I’ve never heard of you,” he added. “I think we’re done here.”

Shapiro later admitted that his attack on Neil was misdirected, tweeting that “As I’m not familiar with him or his work, I misinterpreted his antagonism as political Leftism (he termed the pro-life position in America ‘barbaric’) – and that was apparently inaccurate. For that, I apologize.”

Once the interview aired on Friday, Shapiro admitted he wasn’t prepared and that he was losing to the BBC host.

James Comey can’t dig struggling CNN out of ratings basement

CNN continued its ratings struggle on Thursday night when the heavily promoted town hall event with former FBI director James Comey failed to help the network’s ongoing viewership issues.

CNN averaged 1.6 million total viewers during the Comey event from 8-9:15 p.m. ET, compared to Fox News’  2.9 million viewers and 1.8 million for MSNBC during the same time period, according to early Nielsen data.

While Comey’s event finished dead last among major cable news networks among total viewers, it managed to double CNN’s dismal prime-time average during the month of April. CNN averaged only 767,000 prime-time viewers last month, behind 14 basic cable networks including Food Network, TLC and the Discovery Channel, while Fox News averaged 2.4 million viewers to top all of basic cable during the same period with MSNBC No. 2, according to TVNewser.

MAINSTREAM MEDIA FEARS TRUMP MIGHT NOT LEAVE OFFICE IF HE LOSES IN 2020

Thursday’s event marked the second time that CNN has aired a Comey town hall since he was fired from his gig running the FBI. The recent event came only one day after the two-year anniversary of his dismissal by President Trump.

Comey couldn’t dig CNN out of last place during the town hall, but he didn’t make for much of a lead-in, either. During the prime-time hours of 8-11 p.m., CNN averaged 1.4 million viewers compared to 2.9 million for Fox News and 2.1 million for MSNBC.

CNN also finished dead last among the key demographic of adults ages 25-54, averaging 302,000 demo viewers, while FNC averaged 459,000 and MSNBC averaged 351,000 during prime time on Thursday. CNN did, however, narrowly edge MSNBC among the demo from during the town hall from 8-9:15 p.m. ET but returned to last place in the category for the remainder of the evening.

RATINGS-CHALLENGED CNN SHEDS STAFF AS NETWORK MOVES INTO LAVISH NEW DIGS

Anderson Cooper, who moderated the Comey event, was forced to inform CNN viewers about Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe. The need for such an explainer was mocked by Media Research Center analyst Nicholas Fondacaro.

“[CNN] wouldn’t have to give viewers this speedy crash course on who Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are, or Andrew McCabe’s misdeeds, if @CNN had actually covered them in any kind of serious manner,” Fondacaro tweeted.

Earlier this week, the audience for a Fox News town hall with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., was 85 percent larger among total viewers than Klobuchar’s April 22 town hall on CNN.

Meanwhile, at the ratings-challenged CNN, more than 100 employees accepted a voluntary buyout; the company aims to pare its headcount as it moves into a luxurious new headquarters in the Hudson Yards area on the West Side of Manhattan.

“The View” host Joy Behar has seemingly taken a deeply personal shot at President Trump, suggesting that he didn’t act like a “real father” towards his son Donald Trump Jr.

“Yesterday, Trump held a press conference about ‘whatever’ and he talked about his son Don Jr. getting subpoenaed by a Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee,” Behar said, teeing up a clip from Trump.

“And he actually sounds like he cares about someone other than himself in this clip,” she added.

Trump defended his son, saying that he was a “good person” and “totally exonerated” by special counsel Robert Mueller.

“The View” host Joy Behar has seemingly taken a deeply personal shot at President Trump, suggesting that he didn’t act like a “real father” towards his son Donald Trump Jr.

“My son testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by Mueller,” Trump said. Behar followed the clip by mocking Trump for acting like he were a real father.

“‘My son, my son,’ he kept saying; like as if he’s a real father,” she commented. “It was so touching,” Behar added sarcastically before the co-hosts discussed Trump Jr.’s subpoena as part of the Russia investigation.

It’s unclear whether Trump Jr. will comply with a subpoena but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has already indicated he and his father didn’t have anything to worry about it.

Guest host Tara Setmayer also took a few shots at Trump Jr., suggesting that his father was “stuck” with him and that, according to Mueller, he was “too stupid to be able to conspire with the Russians.”

She also seemed to deride the idea that Trump Jr. didn’t tell his father about the infamous meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian attorney during the 2016 election cycle.

“The Russians were very involved, the Trump campaign was willing to take that stolen information,” she said, summarizing Mueller’s findings. “And Don Jr., Mr. ‘I love it’ when he found out emails that they might have Hillary Clinton dirt, all of this brings into question: How much did Donald Trump know?”

She continued by suggesting Trump Jr. was child-like in his attachment to his father. “Does anyone really believe that Don Jr., who can’t go to the bathroom without telling his dad, [that he] didn’t tell his father?”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib said Thursday the people want to see President Trump impeached and urged her colleagues to take such course of action.

The Michigan Democrat appeared on CNN to discuss the latest impeachment talk after MoveOn.org, a liberal activist group, delivered a flash drive with 10 million signatures calling for Trump’s impeachment.

“What I think is important is to recognize that 10 million people said that we need to hold this president accountable,” Tlaib said about the signatures. “That speaks volumes.”

FRESHMAN REP. RASHIDA TLAIB INTRODUCES RESOLUTION URGING TRUMP IMPEACHMENT

Tlaib noted that the number of signatures gives a mandate for the Congress to go after the president and investigate him.

“Just alone, just think about it: ten million people want us to uphold the United States Constitution. Ten million people want us to investigate this president and whether or not he has violated the United States Constitution and whether or not he’s acting above the law. And I think that is tremendous, you know, a movement that is moving.”

“[The petition is] saying to all of us as members of Congress, please, please do something. Take back our democracy. Get back our country.”

— Rep. Rashida Tlaib

As a swipe at her Democratic colleagues who are wary of going all-out to impeach Trump, Tlaib said that the petition is “saying to all of us as members of Congress, please, please do something. Take back our democracy. Get back our country.”

DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSWOMAN TLAIB ACCUSES ISRAEL OF OPPRESSING, TARGETING ‘PALESTINIAN CHILDREN AND FAMILIES’

She also threw shade on House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., who declared a “constitutional crisis” after voting to hold Attorney General Bill Bar in contempt, though balking at the impeachment option.

Tlaib suggested Nadler is acting based on “political strategy” while she wants to impeach Trump because that is – in her view – the right thing to do.

“When I look back at this moment in our country, this remarkable moment in our country, I want to look back and say that I did something,” she said. “Right now, doing nothing is not an option, and ten million people just told us, do something.”

MSNBC guest suggests Trump was probably ‘happy’ players of color didn’t show up to White House ceremony

President Trump paid tribute to the Boston Red Sox on Thursday with a White House ceremony honoring the club’s 2018 World Series victory, but one MSNBC guest took a shot at the commander-in-chief over the celebration.

Ron Klain, the former chief of staff to former Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, appeared on MSNBC and told anchor Nicole Wallace that championship visits to the White House are something that was supposed to bring the country together but the Red Sox’s visit was fostering division — something the president deliberately harps on.

“Among the many, many sad chapters of Donald Trump is that he relishes in dividing us as a country. I bet he was happy today that he was able to say that the white players were here and the players of color weren’t,” Klain said as Wallace sat silently shaking her head.

Klain added: “It’s the kind of division he fosters deliberately. It’s the exact opposite of presidents – Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative – around these kinds of events.”

Trump made no mention of the players who didn’t show up to the ceremony. Manager Alex Cora, American League MVP Mookie Betts, outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr., and pitcher David Price were among them. He described the Red Sox as an ‘unstoppable’ team who had a “spectacular victory.”

“Each Red Sox player is a shining example of excellence living out an American sporting tradition that goes back many generations,” Trump said, adding: “Through every pitch, inning, game, and series, the 2018 Red Sox never gave up and never backed down, always played like champions.”

The Red Sox stressed that the clubhouse has not been divided on the issue; no player or coach was pressured to go, and players who chose not to attend stressed there would be no ill will toward those who attended. While Cora skipped the ceremony, Red Sox principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner, team president Sam Kennedy and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski occupied prominent places on the stage behind Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez ‘entertaining’ idea of endorsing 2020 Democratic candidate, possibly Sanders or Warren

Westlake Legal Group AOC040319 Ocasio-Cortez 'entertaining' idea of endorsing 2020 Democratic candidate, possibly Sanders or Warren Lukas Mikelionis fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 3de6fc43-3e5b-5627-b105-4c05a5e15d98

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez might only be a freshman congresswoman, but she could yet be a kingmaker in 2020.

The New York Democrat told reporters she is “entertaining” the idea of endorsing a candidate in the crowded race to win her party’s nomination, and while she hasn’t yet picked a candidate, she believes Sens. Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are someone she could endorse.

AOC, SANDERS TEAM UP WITH ‘RADICAL’ PLAN TO CAP INTEREST RATES

“What I’d like to see in a presidential candidate is one that has a coherent worldview and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I think Sen. Sanders has that. I also think Sen. Warren has that.”

She went on to add that she also wants to see “working people” in the Democratic primary focusing on combatting income inequality, climate change, and being “bold to really big ideas that are gonna make people lives better.”

“What I’d like to see in a presidential candidate is one that has a coherent worldview and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward.”

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

She didn’t respond to a question whether she would support former Vice President Joe Biden’s candidacy. Ocasio-Cortez has previously said a bid by Biden would be going backward, instead of forward.

“That does not particularly animate right now,” she told Yahoo last month, adding that she has “a lot of issues” with a potential Biden run.

AOC CALLS NEW CAMPAIGN FINANCE COMPLAINT ‘BOGUS’

Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders unveiled a new proposal on Thursday that aims to put a 15 percent cap on credit card interest rates, with the ability of states to establish lower limits if they wish.

Multiple Democratic 2020 candidates also endorsed the Green New Deal, a radical proposal introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey that aims to transform the economy in an effort to tackle climate change.

Yet while Ocasio-Cortez remains the rising star of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, it’s likely that some campaigns could see her endorsement a drawback rather than an advantage during the general election against Trump.

Polls show that Ocasio-Cortez favorability ranking has tanked just months after arriving to Congress, with most of the public – particularly Republicans – viewing her negatively rather than favorably.
