The hosts of “The View” had some tough words for President Donald Trump after a New York Times report claimed he lost more than $1 billion between 1985 and 1994.

“I want to ask the Trump voter one question,” host Joy Behar said on Wednesday. “Would you let [Trump] invest your money?” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg responded by asking why people would let Trump direct where their tax money went.

Goldberg said she was “pissed” that Trump reportedly didn’t pay taxes either, arguing that he avoided something that hardworking Americans had to do every year.

Behar also blasted Trump, noting that she couldn’t decide whether he was a “fraud or a loser.” “When I look at his track record, I think he’s probably a fraud and a loser,” co-host Sunny Hostin told Behar.

NY TIMES REPORTS IT FOUND TRUMP TAX DOCUMENTS SHOWING NEARLY $1.2B IN LOSSES BETWEEN 1985 AND 1994

The Times reported it found Trump tax documents showing nearly $1.2B in losses between 1985 and 1994

Trump responded to the Times’ report on Wednesday, tweeting that the report was a “Fake News hit job!”

Trump also indicated that his actions were common among real estate developers at the time.

“Real estate developers in the 1980’s & 1990’s, more than 30 years ago, were entitled to massive write offs and depreciation which would, if one was actively building, show losses and tax losses in almost all cases,” he said.

Trump was tweeting about the report, co-host Abby Huntsman speculated, because money was “where his insecurity lies.”

Meghan McCain’s husband blasts late-night host Seth Meyers after contentious interview

Westlake Legal Group Seth-Myers-Ben-Domench-Meghan-McClain-NBC-Getty Meghan McCain’s husband blasts late-night host Seth Meyers after contentious interview Sam Dorman fox-news/person/meghan-mccain fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/entertainment/media fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc f5f5443b-cd22-5bf5-be13-77515ad864b2 article

Ben Domenech, publisher of the Federalist, unloaded a series of insults on late night host Seth Meyers after he had a testy exchange with his wife, “The View” host Meghan McCain.

“I see that @sethmeyers, that untalented piece of s— who only has his job because he regularly gargled Lorne Michaels’ b–s, went after my wife tonight with his idiotic anti-Semitic bulls—,” Domenech tweeted, according to The Daily Beast. Michaels is the comedian who created and produced Saturday Night Live, the show where Meyers performed for many years.

Meyers, who hosted Domenech’s wife on his show, challenged McCain on her repeated criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. At one point, McCain asked Meyers if he was Omar’s “publicist.”

ILHAN OMAR MOCKS MEGHAN MCCAIN AFTER FIERY CRITICISM: ‘OH, BLESS HER HEART!’

In another tweet, Domenech called Meyers an “awful person who is known in the industry for how terrible he is.” “He is a monumental a–hole who is utterly unfunny. He deserves the mockery he receives from all the people who laugh at him,” he added.

He also said the host served as proof that “white men get ahead despite their obvious lack of talent.” “It’s @sethmeyers, who would beg for a third of the viewers at @TheView,” he said, referring to his wife’s show.

“But the best thing is how much all the people around @sethmeyers talk about what a s—-y person he is. Because oh, it is sad. So terrible, But he deserves all of it,” Domenech added in a different tweet.

Domenech eventually apologized on Wednesday morning and deleted his other tweets.

“I apologize for rage tweeting about how Seth Meyers treated her. I don’t like him, I think he’s a hack, but I shouldn’t have done that. I’m sorry to anyone I offended,” he said.

During Meyers’ interview with McCain, the host rought up McCain’s commentary on ABC’s “This Week” following the deadly synagogue shooting at the Poway, Calif., last month where she invoked Omar’s tweets, and asserted that both Democrats and Republicans have to tackle anti-Semitism within their own parties.

When asked if there’s a way to talk about Israel without being considered anti-Semitic, McCain responded by saying don’t talk about “Jews hypnotizing the world” and “all about the Benjamins.”

“You do keep bringing up the two tweets she apologized for,” Meyers told McCain, “and I think it’s a little unfair to her, especially because…”

“Are you her publicist?” McCain reacted. “Are you her press person?”

“No,” Meyers answered. “I’m just someone who cares about the fact that there’s someone out there who is in a minority, who has had death threats against her, and I think we should all use the same language that you’re asking her to be careful about her language. And I would ask that everyone be careful about theirs.”

CNN host Don Lemon calls Trump ‘conman-in-chief,’ says he has ‘pulled the wool’ over voters’ eyes

CNN’s Don Lemon launched a blistering attack on President Trump Tuesday night, accusing him of being a “fraud and a conman”.

“Turns out Donald Trump is our conman-in-chief” the anti-Trump host charged during his show, shortly after The New York Times reported President Trump lost $1.17 billion from failed business endeavors from 1985 to 1994.

TRUMP BLASTS ‘HIT JOB’ NEW YORK TIMES REPORT ON LOSSES IN TAX RETURNS

The report claims Trump avoided paying income taxes for nearly 10 years after his businesses lost $46.1 million in 1985 and continued to decline, losing more than $250 million each year in 1990 and 1991, according to IRS tax transcripts obtained by the Times.

His biggest losses amassed from his casinos, hotels and retail spaces in apartment buildings, according to the report.

“Casinos. Casinos losing money? You know what they say about gambling, casino gambling, right, the house always wins? Well, not always. Not if it’s a Trump casino. Who loses money at a casino except for the person gambling?” Lemon said.

Lemon criticized Trump for campaigning for president in 2016 as a “billionaire business genius,” and “convincing the voters that he would be the best dealmaker ever in the White House,” calling him “literally the worst businessman in the country.”

“His biggest con was pulling the wool right over your eyes,” Lemon said to viewers.

Trump responded to the Times report on Wednesday blasting it as a “Fake News hit job” on Twitter.

“Real estate developers in the 1980’s & 1990’s, more than 30 years ago, were entitled to massive write offs and depreciation which would, if one was actively building, show losses and tax losses in almost all cases. Much was non monetary. Sometimes considered “tax shelter,” ……”

….you would get it by building, or even buying. You always wanted to show losses for tax purposes….almost all real estate developers did – and often re-negotiate with banks, it was sport. Additionally, the very old information put out is a highly inaccurate Fake News hit job!”

Baltimore TV anchor Mary Bubala ousted after asking controversial question about city’s recent mayors

A Baltimore TV anchor was ousted days after she received backlash for asking a question surrounding the race, gender and leadership abilities of the city’s recent mayors that some viewers deemed “racist and sexist.”

Mary Bubala, the anchor for CBS affiliate WJZ-TV’s 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. newscasts, no longer worked at the television station as of Monday, four days after her question to Loyola University Maryland professor Karsonya “Kaye” Wise Whitehead led to a firestorm of criticism, the station’s manager Audra Swain told the Baltimore Sun.

Bubala confirmed her departure in a Facebook post Tuesday and said the station she’s worked at since 2003 was “forced” to let her go.

“In my 22 years of working in TV news in Baltimore – 15 of those years with WJZ – I have always treated people with the utmost respect and dignity. I loved my job because I loved the people of Baltimore,” Bubala wrote in the post. “…Unfortunately, I now stand in the path of the tornado. WJZ was forced to let me go. I am saddened and shocked by this decision. Baltimore City has been my home for 25 years and I treasure and am so grateful for the relationships I have made with the people of Baltimore during this time.”

BALTIMORE MAYOR RESIGNS AMID FBI, STATE INVESTIGATIONS INTO ‘HEALTHY HOLLY’ BOOK

MSNBC’S NICOLLE WALLACE ARGUES DEMS SHOULD PURSUE IMPEACHMENT DESPITE UNPOPULARITY

The anchorwoman began receiving backlash on Thursday after she interviewed Whitehead on-air and asked about the last three Baltimore mayors — Sheila Dixon, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and Catherine Pugh, who resigned last week amid state and federal investigations into sales of her children’s book.

“We’ve had three female, African-American mayors in a row. They were all passionate public servants. Two resigned, though. Is this a signal that a different kind of leadership is needed to move Baltimore City forward?” Bubala asked Whitehead.

Whitehead responded to the question by saying she did not believe the Maryland city needed a change in leadership.

Many viewers immediately slammed Bubala for asking the question, including Micki Mayo, the former president of the Baltimore Association of Black Journalists (BABJ).

“Soooooo this happened following the resignation of #Baltimore Mayor #CatherinePugh. URGH! I’m not even sure I want to hear the excuse for this.  I’m cringing and cursing,” Mayo tweeted along with a video of Bubala asking the question.

CNN ANCHOR SUGGESTS HE WANTS DEMS TO ‘TAKE ACTION’: ‘WHEN DOES THE RUBBER MEET THE ROAD?’

Another Twitter user also wrote, “As a Black man in America, I found your question about having 3 female African American on this evening newscast offensive . In a City, which is over 60% black , you have offended thousands of people. You owe your listeners an apology.”

Bubala was quick to apologize and released a statement on Thursday and Friday saying she was “so deeply sorry and sincerely regret the words I chose.” She concluded the apology by asking viewers to let her regain their trust. The criticism continued, however, and BABJ released a statement Monday calling Bubala’s question “racist and sexist.”

“The question implies race and gender are qualifiers in one’s ability to lead while also demonizing African-Americans and women as poor leaders,” BABJ’s statement read. “…While Bubala apologized with a tweet May 3, there was no acknowledgment of the gaffe or apology on-air by her, WJZ-TV or CBS. This is unacceptable since the apology should be administered in the same fashion that the damaging question was delivered.”

Bubala explained in her Monday statement that she was barred from doing an on-air apology.

“Last week I realized I made a mistake in the language I used on air. I immediately apologized for any hurt I unintentionally caused. I received immediate support from WJZ because they knew it was not in my heart to intentionally cause this kind of harm,” the longtime anchor said. “I wanted to do an on-air apology but was not allowed. I hope that the people of Baltimore know that I would never do anything to hurt anyone.”

Bubala concluded by saying she will fight to restore her reputation.

“I fully intend to fight to restore my reputation because I’ve invested my heart and soul in my work and my city. Thank you Baltimore for all of your support during this difficult period of time. It means so much to me,” she said.

CNN anchors celebrate Trump’s leaked tax docs: He’s ‘literally the biggest loser’

The anchors of CNN were ecstatic over The New York Times’ report on President Donald Trump’s leaked tax documents that show he had nearly $1.2 billion in losses between 1985 and 1994.

The report that broke on Tuesday night says that among high-income earners that Trump “lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer,” pointing out in one year he had lost more than double than the individual with the next highest losses, according to IRS records, and that in eight of those ten years, the billionaire real estate mogul didn’t have to pay any federal income taxes.

Trump’s unflattering tax documents were quickly embraced by several CNN personalities.

“Outfront” anchor Erin Burnett called the findings in the NYT report “pretty stunning stuff” and that “this was not normal.”

“Does this to you explain why he doesn’t want anyone to have this information? That he was such a loser?” Burnett asked a panelist. “The reason I say that word, I’m not trying to be funny, he uses that word all the time. He calls people losers and has such disdain and drips with horror when he uses that word, and yet he was literally the biggest loser in the country.”

“AC360” anchor Anderson Cooper called the report “eye-popping,” “stunning,” and “incredible,” admitting there are “a lot of adjectives” to describe it. Cooper grinned as he also referred to President Trump as the “biggest loser” while discussing the report with NYT’s Susanne Craig, one of the reporters who broke the story.

“Cuomo Prime Time” anchor Chris Cuomo showered NYT reporter Russ Buettner with praise for co-authoring the story.

“Boy, you did a hell of a job on this. Any kudos you get is well deserved,” Cuomo told Buettner. “On reporting alone- forget about the impact and the outcome, the reporting is top-notch scrubbing.

Before wrapping up the part-two of a two-part segment, Cuomo congratulated Buettner, saying “in this business, the assumption is to be jealous that somebody else did it. Not me. I’m proud.”

“Read this piece today. You can’t have journalism that’s done better than this and I don’t care who it’s about, I don’t care what it’s about. Just look at the methodology that they take you through in the piece. It’s why people get into journalism,” Cuomo continued. “For days, people are going to be processing this story. For days.”

Meanwhile, “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon declared that Trump was a “fraud” and a “con-man” and that the “fraud and the con is on us.”

“It turns out Donald Trump is our con man in chief and his biggest con was pulling the wool right over your eyes, convincing voters that he would be the best dealmaker ever in the White House,” Lemon told his viewers. “The man who ran for president on his reputation as a billionaire business genius was a really, really, really lousy businessman. Literally the worst businesman in the country! I’m speaking the truth here!”

Lemon mocked Trump’s losses on his casinos, laughing that the house apparently doesn’t “always” win.

“C’mon! Who loses money in a casino, except for the person gambling?” Lemon asked.

The “CNN Tonight” host also slammed Trump for not paying federal income taxes for several years, saying you can do that “if you’re a bad businessman.” He went on to ridicule the president by dramatically reading several exerpts from Trump’s business memoir “The Art of the Deal.”

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said Tuesday that Democratic lawmakers should pursue impeachment proceedings against President Trump despite that path’s unpopularity among voters, insisting it’s “the right thing” to do.

“I don’t understand why the Democrats don’t see the political unpopularity of impeachment as their cover to simply do the right thing,” Wallace said. “If it were popular, they would be accused of doing a politically expedient political play to punish the president. That it’s unpopular gives them all the cover they should need to do the right thing.”

The “Deadline: White House” host called out House Democrats for their reluctance, saying they “balked and blinked and hedged.”

CNN anchor John Berman seemed to urge Democratic lawmakers to “take action” against the Trump administration Tuesday over the Department of Justice’s handling of the Mueller Report and other disputes between Congress and the White House.

The “New Day” co-host referenced the planned contempt vote against Attorney General William Barr by the House Judiciary Committee over the Justice Department’s failure to provide the full text of Mueller’s report by Monday’s deadline.

Berman also mentioned Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s refusal to provide Trump’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee.

“At what point do the Democrats actually take action? They risk seeming like the boy who cried contempt, as it were here,” Berman said. “Because they’ve been talking about it for over a week now. So when does the rubber meet the road here? Steve Mnuchin saying no to the taxes. Will they take him to court this week, or start that process? The contempt stuff, will they vote on that now? Or will they succumb to the delay tactics that the White House seems to be instituting here, just inching it forward day by day?”

Last week, Berman’s co-host Alisyn Camerota said she was “disheartened” that President Trump won’t face consequences based on the findings from the Mueller Report.

“I’m sorry if I sound like they’ve broken my spirit,” Camerota said, “I think I am channeling many members of the American public who feel these past two years have been disheartening for people who believe in justice. The reason that I say that is because, you see in the Mueller report ample evidence laid out of obstruction, of what Robert Mueller considered obstruction, but nothing happens. You see violations of the emoluments clause but nothing happens. You see nepotism, but nothing happens.”

“At this point, I think there is a feeling of, I don’t know, exhaustion, I guess,” she continued. “We know this from polls, we know this from voters turning away after the Mueller report that they think that Congress is going to continue this and there’ll be more legalese and there’ll be more nuance.

Soledad O’Brien slams CNN over its headline asking ‘how black’ will royal baby be

Ex-CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien slammed her former network over a lack of diversity on Monday after CNN’s website responded to the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son by asking, “How black will the royal baby be?”

“Late Night with Seth Meyers” writer Amber Ruffin captured an image of the headline, which was noticed by O’Brien.

“CNN needs more people of color working in the executive, decision-making ranks. Obviously,” O’Brien captioned the image of CNN’s headline regarding the race of the royal baby.

CNN did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The headline directed readers to an analysis labeled, “Don’t use the royal birth to trot out a dangerous myth” and urged people not to turn the baby into “another Great Mixed-Race Hope.” CNN’s John K. Blake – who wrote the piece – responded to Ruffin’s initial tweet with his defense.

“Those who read my entire piece will understand the context. The analysis specifically addresses why classifying a child as X% black is a trap. It’s the language & racial ideas from the Jim Crow era. That‘s the exact point of the our actual headline,” Blake wrote.

As for O’Brien’s criticism, a list of CNN’s leadership posted on its website does not appear to include any people of color. It does, however, include CNN International executive vice president Tony Maddox – who was one over 100 staffers to accept a voluntary buyout this week as the company looks to reduce its headcount.

THIS IS CNN? PRIMETIME SHOWS FILLED WITH LIBERAL OPINION, NOT STRAIGHT NEWS AS NETWORK CLAIMS

The royal bundle of joy is seventh in line for the British throne and is Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild. Harry is the younger son of Prince Charles, the next in line to the throne, and the late Princess Diana. Meghan, a biracial California native, had a starring role on the American TV series “Suits” prior to her marriage to Prince Harry.

O’Brien, who is also biracial, was a CNN anchor before starting production and distribution company Starfish Media Group in 2013.

Earlier this year, CNN was criticized by the NAACP over its lack of minorities in executive positions.

“It is vital that news organizations reflect the diversity of our country, which includes people of color in key decisionmaking roles which are responsible for shaping news coverage and providing nuanced perspectives, especially around issues directly impacting Black America,” the NAACP said in a statement. “CNN’s lack of black representation in leadership roles is troubling and another example of the media industry’s reluctance to address an issue that continues to plague newsrooms across the country.”

Fox News’ Jessica Sager and Sasha Savitsky contributed to this report.

Mainstream media fears Trump might not leave office if he loses in 2020

With the Mueller probe complete, many members of the mainstream media have pivoted to expressing fears that President Trump will refuse to leave office if he is defeated in 2020.

Trump helped troll the media himself when he recently retweeted Jerry Falwell Jr., who wrote, presumably in jest: “I now support reparations-Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back [sic] for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.”

“No one can regard that as a serious suggestion, but it sure has the Trump detractors up in arms,” Fox News’ Howard Kurtz wrote.

While Kurtz was among the many who didn’t think much of the tweet, mainstream media members used it to fuel their concerns that Trump will actually refuse to give up power.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid speculated on Sunday that Trump “doesn’t have any intention of committing to a peaceful transition of power,” while CNN’s editor-at-large Chris Cillizza was ridiculed Monday after tweeting a link to a fictional column he wrote about what would happen if Trump “refuses to admit” he loses in 2020. New York magazine even published a piece headlined, “How Worried Should Democrats Be That Trump Won’t Concede?”

CNN and MSNBC devoted segments to the topic – which were quickly picked up by watchdogs. MSNBC’s John Heilemann asked, “It seems psychotic to have to ask this question, but do you think Trump, in his mind somewhere, thinks he’s owed two more years?” Over on CNN, biographer Michael D’Antonio suggested Trump will try to “cook up” some reason to stay in office.

“Media figures like CNN’s Chris Cillizza would do well to take a look at how Democrats treat election losses before they baselessly claim that Trump won’t leave office,” Daily Caller White House correspondent Amber Athey told Fox News.

CNN’S CHRIS CILLIZZA MOCKED FOR FICTIONAL COLUMN ABOUT TRUMP REFUSING TO ADMIT 2020 DEFEAT

Athey pointed to Hillary Clinton recently claiming that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her, while former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams still refuses to concede the 2018 election.

“Surely those are more obvious threats to democracy than fantasy conspiracies about the president,” Athey said.

Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor echoed Athey’s thoughts, telling Fox News that the media initially claimed Trump wouldn’t accept the 2016 election results, but it was the Democrats who don’t accept them.

“Even now, Hillary Clinton can’t accept she lost,” Gainor said. “Then in 2018 more Democrats refused to accept their losses. Still, the media put forth this fraud about Trump.”

PELOSI: TRUMP NEEDS TO LOSE SO DECISIVELY IN 2020 THAT HE WON’T CHALLENGE THE RESULTS

Cillizza used recent comments from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as the impetus for his fictional piece.

“If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he’s not going to respect the election,” she told The New York Times last week. “He would poison the public mind. He would challenge each of the races. He would say you can’t seat these people.”

Gainor asked, “Why aren’t they asking about Pelosi’s mental state?”

The Washington Post added, “Two more years? Trump’s retweet sets off a furor over the idea of bonus time” as a tweet and the Pelosi comment resulted in media hysteria.

DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News it’s “totally unnecessary for the news media to take a hair-on-fire approach to this notion that Trump won’t leave if defeated in the 2020 election” and said Pelosi’s rumination is the only flimsy basis for the fears.

“But Pelosi’s utterance is based on her political posturing and comes with no stated evidence to support her concern. News outlets that push this totally speculative notion are allowing Pelosi to manipulate the news agenda,” McCall said. “That Pelosi is raising this prospect might have limited news value, but only if the story is covered with sufficient qualifiers to put her unsupported fears in context.”

Despite the backlash, it appears that the storyline isn’t going away anytime soon. The Independent explored on Tuesday what would happen if Trump physically refused to leave the White House.

“The US constitution makes no mention of how a president should be removed if they lose an election and refuse to hand over power to their opponent. So, it is hard to say if anyone would have the appetite to send the FBI, or navy seals, or whatever law enforcement agency, storming into the West Wing to arrest a recently defeated Donald Trump,” the paper’s Clark Mindock wrote.
