Lara Trump denies mocking Joe Biden’s stutter: ‘Yet another example of … egregious reporting’

Westlake Legal Group laratrump Lara Trump denies mocking Joe Biden's stutter: 'Yet another example of ... egregious reporting' fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 04bd5368-a8bb-5183-bb24-ab7f3de50a76

Lara Trump, President Trump’s daughter-in-law and a Trump 2020 campaign adviser, fired back at a tabloid report Friday that claimed she mocked former Vice President Joe Biden’s stutter while at a campaign event in Iowa.

“Yet another example of the egregious reporting we see every day in the mainstream media,” the 37-year-old, who is married to the president’s son Eric, tweeted, linking to the Daily Mail’s story. “Anyone who takes 10 seconds to watch what I actually said can clearly see that I never mention a stutter — didn’t even know he had one — but they can’t help themselves.”

LARA TRUMP LASHES OUT AFTER CNN ACCUSES HER OF ‘LYING’ ABOUT RALLY CROWD’S ‘SEND HER BACK!’ CHANT

While at a Women for Trump event Friday, she told the audience she feels “kind of sad for Joe Biden.”

“I’m supposed to want him to fail at every turn, but every time he comes on stage or they turn to him, I’m like, ‘Joe, can you get it out? Let’s get the words out, Joe!’” she said. “You Kind of feel bad for him. The problem is that’s their front-runner, guys!”

After Vox reporter Aaron Rupar posted a video of the moment, also tweeting that she was “mocking” Biden’s stutter, Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the president’s reelection campaign, defended her.

“Not what Lara said and Rupar knows it,” he tweeted. “Biden was a terrible candidate the first 2 times he ran for president & he’s no better this time. He doesn’t know what state he’s in half the time & thinks Thatcher is still British PM. Nothing to do w/speech impediment. Just bad candidate.”

Biden has been public about his life-long struggle with stuttering. He sometimes stumbles over his words and discussed the problem at the December debate.

While talking about the campaign trail on the debate stage, Biden imitated a child he met with a stutter saying to him, “I can’t talk.”

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders later wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I hhhave absolutely no idea what Biden is talking about,” referring to the debate moment. She followed it with another tweet, clarifying she was not mocking people with speech impediments.

Biden responded, “I’ve worked my whole life to overcome a stutter. And it’s my great honor to mentor kids who have experienced the same. It’s called empathy. Look it up.”

Sanders replied, “I actually didn’t know that about you and that is commendable. I apologize and should have made my point respectfully.”

Maher says Bidens will become the ‘bigger scandal’ if they testify, Lev Parnas ‘not credible’

Westlake Legal Group bill-maher-HBO Maher says Bidens will become the 'bigger scandal' if they testify, Lev Parnas 'not credible' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox news fnc/entertainment fnc e0f11548-f696-561e-9301-fa86e57a4146 article

“Real Time” host Bill Maher returned Friday night after a holiday break and weighed in on potential witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, including the possibility of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden being brought in to testify — as well as Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

Maher said that Democrats who’ve been pushing for witness testimony at the trial — from the likes of former national security adviser John Bolton, for example — could find themselves facing unintended consequences.

“How about this question: Could it backfire, witnesses?” Maher asked during the show’s panel segment. “Because then [doesn’t] Trump get to call Biden and his ne’er-do-well son?”

CNN’S JAKE TAPPER KNOCKS DEMS FOR RUSHING TO TRUST LEV PARNAS: HE HAS A ‘SERIOUS CREDIBILITY PROBLEM’

Maher then blasted Biden for not having a better explanation for his son’s ties to the Ukrainian company Burisma.

“Biden needs a better answer about his son than, ‘I can do more push-ups than you,’ and ‘I’m going to beat you up,'” Maher said.

He then recalled the 2004 presidential election, when Democratic nominee and “war hero” John Kerry was transformed into a “war criminal,” and Republican incumbent and “draft dodger” George W. Bush was transformed into a “war hero.”

“If this gets to a trial and they call Biden and his son, trust me, Biden and his son and Ukraine will be the bigger scandal,” Maher insisted.

Later, Maher slammed Parnas, who made explosive claims this week during interviews on MSNBC and CNN, claiming Trump had direct knowledge of efforts to withhold U.S. aid from Ukraine in exchange for an announced investigation into the Bidens.

“He’s not credible,” Maher said of Parnas. “I believe him actually … but he left a note to himself that said, ‘Get Zelensky to announce that the Biden case will be investigated.’ To himself! It’s like a bank robber writing a note, ‘Remember to rob bank.’ It strikes me as suspicious that you’d do that.”

Tucker Carlson: Democrats want US to be more like California — the state that’s driving residents away

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6124512955001_6124512479001-vs Tucker Carlson: Democrats want US to be more like California -- the state that's driving residents away Victor Garcia fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/topic/homeless-crisis fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 25734214-6235-5a66-8096-9a0ed7f53ccd

Tucker Carlson continued to take on the homeless crisis Friday night, this time tying it to the 2020 presidential election and asking viewers what kind of impact the election will have on the United States.

“The issues at stake are bigger than just the economy or even our foreign policy commitments. 2020 is about the broadest possible questions. What kind of country should we have? Who should live here? What will America look like 50 years from now?” Carlson asked on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“There are a lot of possible answers to those questions,” he added, “but leading Democrats appear to have settled on their position. America, they’re telling us, should be a lot more like California.”

CALIFORNIA EXODUS COULD LEAD TO STATE LOSING CONGRESSIONAL SEAT, CENSUS ESTIMATES FIND

Carlson, who has covered California’s problems extensively, mentioned Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg‘s recent comments praising the state.

“I think that California can serve as a great example for the rest of this country,” Bloomberg said last week.

Carlson said he sees Bloomberg’s view as being woefully outdated.

“The people who moved here in 1960 when Bloomberg graduated high school found their American dream,” Carlson said. “But things have changed. Now, the children and grandchildren of those people are fleeing California.”

The Golden State’s problems have included health and immigration — and residents leaving the state because of failed policies, Carlson said.

“It’s messed up, really messed up,” Carlson said after playing a montage of homeless people taking drugs and leaving filth in the street.

“That’s right. And so finally normal people are leaving California. For decades, the state led the nation in attracting migrants from other states. Now the flow has reversed.”

Carlson blamed the politicians.

“Instead of fixing the problems that are forcing people to flee,” he said, “politicians here have spent the last few years on policies that are frivolous and counterproductive.”

Eric Trump: Reports that Joe’s brother ‘leveraged’ family name show ‘the Bidens are a business’

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132237915640920000-1 Eric Trump: Reports that Joe's brother 'leveraged' family name show 'the Bidens are a business' fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/florida fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/delaware fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/executive/first-family fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8889e74b-8640-5fa5-a7b7-65a81aa1d199

Reports that Joe Biden‘s brother “leveraged” the family name for personal gain, coming months after similar allegations against the former vice president’s son Hunter, are proof the famous Delaware family is “a business,” Eric Trump said Friday.

Trump, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization, told Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” that an ABC News report about Frank Biden is another example of untoward activity utilizing the family’s famous patriarch’s name and position.

In other words, the Biden family has done the opposite of the Trumps, he said.

BIDEN, BUTTIGIEG LOOK TO EXPLOIT IOWA OPENING AS IMPEACHMENT DRAGS RIVALS BACK TO DC

“They all get into business when their father becomes vice president, or their brother becomes vice president,” Trump said. “We get out of business when our father becomes [president]. It’s kind of interesting.

“For the Bidens, this is a business. There’s no question it became a business. You see his brother (Frank) doing it.”

In 2009, while the eldest Biden, 77, was vice president, Frank Biden held a meeting with a business executive at a coffee shop in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., where he agreed to lead a new charter school organization, ABC News reported.

Frank Biden, according to the network, earned “hundreds of thousands of dollars over a five-year period,” and “unabashed[ly]” touted his last name as a “tremendous asset,” and claimed that Bidens “tak[e] care of people who need help.” The charter school organization, ABC reported, was later hit by “claims of mismanagement.”

Turning to the former vice president’s own career, Trump remarked that Joe Biden served in the Senate for more years than Eric Trump has been alive. Biden, a New Castle County councilman in 1972, defeated Sen. J. Caleb Boggs, R-Del., and served in the Senate until around the time of President Obama’s 2009 inauguration.

“This guy has a lot of problems, aside from the fact that he lacks charisma,” Trump said. “Again, he hasn’t exactly been a good mouthpiece for [Democrats] because he keeps on stumbling and going off on these terrible rants.”

He said that former President John F. Kennedy would not recognize today’s “radical” Democratic Party.

“Quite frankly, I think they’re handing my father the win.”

Charlie Hurt: ‘Dyed-in-the-wool Communist’ Bernie Sanders getting played by the Democratic Party bosses

Westlake Legal Group ENC3_132237888263570000 Charlie Hurt: 'Dyed-in-the-wool Communist' Bernie Sanders getting played by the Democratic Party bosses fox-news/us/democratic-party fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 5ca58541-d682-55af-b683-c0ddc2b03f48

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is once again getting the short end of the stick from Democratic Party leaders, Fox News contributor Charlie Hurt said Friday on “Hannity.”

Hurt said that no matter how high the popular energy is surrounding the self-described democratic socialist, the party does not want him to be the nominee.

“I don’t agree with anything Bernie Sanders says, but, he got screwed the last time,” said Hurt, the Washington Times’ opinion editor.

“They stole the nomination from him last time. And the reason they don’t like him is because they — and, again, I don’t like him or anything he stands for but — they can’t control him.”

GREG GUTFELD: HOW IMPEACHMENT IS MAKING TRUMP A BETTER PRESIDENT

Hurt said that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., also appears to have realized the Democratic Party does not want far-left a candidate to be the nominee.

“Elizabeth Warren realizes what the rest of the Democratic Party realizes — the party poobahs, and what Hillary Clinton probably realizes — which is that all the energy is with Bernie Sanders,” he said.

However, Hurt credited Sanders for being more genuine than Warren.

“He is a dyed-in-the-wool Communist and he has been his entire adult life,” he said. “Elizabeth Warren is a faker. She is a fraud. Everything she says is a lie. I’m not saying that she doesn’t believe some crazy things. I think she probably does.”

Sanders’ authenticity, Hurt said, is why many voters in the Democratic Party appear to flock to him.

“Bernie is a Marxist,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, stated during the segment, noting that Sanders and his wife took their 1988 honeymoon in what was then the Soviet Union.

Hogan Gidley: Trump’s legal team is ‘ready’ to defend president in impeachment trial

Westlake Legal Group HoganGidley Hogan Gidley: Trump's legal team is 'ready' to defend president in impeachment trial Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article ae8f997b-8cf0-56f5-9e42-afdef7ba26e4

White House principal deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Friday that President Trump has assembled a “world-renowned” defense team to represent him in the forthcoming Senate impeachment trial.

Gidley also defended the legal team from Democratic criticism on “The Story with Martha MacCallum, saying: “They come out and attack the team, try and impugn their character, as opposed to focusing on the issue at hand, which is: Did the president do anything wrong?

“And the answer is, no,” Gidley added. “And regardless of the team we put in place and this one is world-renowned, don’t get me wrong, the case is pretty cut and dry.”

TRUMP’S IMPEACHMENT DEFENSE TEAM: TOP LAWYERS TAPPED FOR LOOMING TRIAL

The team includes Ken Starr, the former independent counsel who led the Whitewater investigation into then-President Bill Clinton in the mid-1990s; former Florida attorney general Pam Bondi; former federal prosecutor Robert Ray; Jane Raskin, who was part of the president’s legal team during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe; and attorney Alan Dershowitz. Both Starr and Dershowitz are former Fox News contributors.

“If this turns out to be a long, drawn-out process with witnesses, we’re ready. If it’s some version in between where it’s shorter and a couple of witnesses, we’re ready, ” Gidley said. “If it’s absolutely dismissed, which it should be, we’re ready for that as well.”

Gidley described a potential scenario where Trump’s personal attorney, Rudolph Giuliani testified at the Senate trial as “hypothetical” and dismissed recent claims by former Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, saying it was “pretty clear” what the media was trying to do by covering Parnas.

“We are confident the facts are on our side in this case. And you see this person going out, this individual, Mr. Parnas, as you know, out on bail for… allegedly committing federal crimes, all kinds of issues there,” Gidley said.  “When you go to MSNBC, CNN and The New York Times, all of whom have an audio leak, letters leak showing their whole mantra is to take down this president, it is pretty clear what you’re trying to do.”

“Not to mention the fact [Parnas is] looking for a reduced sentence, it seems, at this point,” Gidley said.

Juan Williams: Barr is targeting Comey, has become a ‘thuggish attorney general’

Westlake Legal Group TheFivecomey117 Juan Williams: Barr is targeting Comey, has become a 'thuggish attorney general' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/person/william-barr fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc c328c295-27d6-58c5-bc55-d2e1d0109547 article

“The Five” co-host Juan Williams called Attorney General William Barr “thuggish” Friday and accused him and the Trump administration of targeting former FBI director James Comey in the wake of a report that Comey is being investigated for allegedly leaking information while heading the FBI.

“This is about Bill Barr… he has become President Trump’s thuggish attorney general,” Williams said on “The Five” Friday.

LYNCH ACCUSES COMEY OF MISREPRESENTING KEY CLINTON PROBE CONVERSATION

Williams said he initially thought Barr was “highly credible” but claimed Barr and the Trump administration are “looking to get Jim Comey.”

Co-host Jesse Watters called Barr “a straight shooter” before returning the focus of the segment to Comey, who Watters said was “duped” by “fake Russian news.”

“Here’s what happened with Comey,” Watters said. “He gets duped by fake Russian news, then leaks the fake Russian news he got duped by, and now he is being investigated for it.”

The New York Times reported late Thursday that the Justice Department is investigating whether Comey illegally leaked secret information concerning a Russian document to the Times and The Washington Post,

The review, which the Times downplayed as a possibly politically motivated probe, reportedly concerned a Russian intelligence document “claiming a tacit understanding between the Clinton campaign and the [Obama] Justice Department over the inquiry into whether she [Clinton] intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server,” as the Post described it in May 2017.

Watters said the report justifies President Trump’s firing of Comey in May 2017.

“And if you look back on what happened, Trump was right. Comey was wrong,” Watters said. There was no collusion. So he had every reason to fire James Comey.”

Meghan McCain sends ‘thoughts and prayers’ to NY Times for having to ‘suffer’ through her ‘problematic opinions’

Westlake Legal Group Meghan-McCain-NYT-HQ-Getty-iStock Meghan McCain sends 'thoughts and prayers' to NY Times for having to 'suffer' through her 'problematic opinions' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/person/meghan-mccain fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 67b6a3d9-37eb-5656-80e0-d4fe6acc40ec

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain sent her “thoughts and prayers” to The New York Times on Friday after the paper published an op-ed complaining about her dominating presence on the ABC daytime talk show.

“Going home to the promised land of Sedona…. I’ll be back @TheView next week as usual,” McCain told her Twitter followers. “Thoughts and prayers to the @nytimes opinion for having to suffer through a conservative woman with a big platform’s problematic opinions.”

Times cultural writer Shamira Ibrahim wrote a scathing piece on Thursday slamming the outspoken conservative host of the “The View,” but began by dismissing the need for “civility.”

MSNBC’S JOE SCARBOROUGH DEFENDS MEGHAN MCCAIN, TRASHES NYT OVER ‘EMBARRASSING’ OP-ED

“The daytime co-hosts’ heated bipartisan debates are played down as disagreement among friends. But the strain for ‘civility’ is tiring.” Ibrahim wrote. “Since Ms. McCain joined as a co-host on ‘The View’ in October of 2017, she’s become its most polarizing and predictable figure, the common denominator in the show’s most contentious round tables as of late. In the early days of her arrival, the conservative commentator’s on-air spats made for fun TV. Now, it’s just exhausting.”

She further complained, “For some viewers, Ms. McCain is the privileged product of conservative nepotism, capitalism and the American military-industrial complex. That coalescence naturally renders her a villain to progressives, who envision her as the cathartic personification of a punching bag on social media. Conversely, each pile-on reinforces her base with a narrative of the long-suffering victim of censorship.”

Ibrahim closed her piece by echoing “View” veteran Barbara Walters, who would always end the show by telling her audience to “take a little time to enjoy the view.”

“The problem is, with Ms. McCain still on the show, there’s not much to enjoy,” Ibrahim said.

‘THE VIEW’ IS ‘A BIG MESS’ AND ABC NEWS ‘THE MOST VICIOUS SWAMP IN THE BUSINESS,’ SOURCES SAY

McCain fired back at the Times piece, accusing the paper of “despising” conservative women.

“@nytimes – everyone already knows how much you despise red state, pro life, [sic] pro #2A conservative women, and wish we would all just go away,” McCain tweeted. “If the @nytimes wants to understand the country, maybe they should try having one woman in the room who doesn’t accept their groupthink on guns, abortion, and religion. Apparently that’s too much for them.”

While McCain received support from many on social media, her biggest defender was actually MSNBC star Joe Scarborough.

“What an embarrassing example of how the Left is becoming even more insular by the day. That is saying a lot,” Scarborough began. “The Left owns most of American popular culture. And yet the existence of one moderately conservative woman poses a threat to civil discourse. Good Lord. What a joke.”

The “Morning Joe” co-host then invoked McCain’s father, the late-Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who in his final years was glorified by the media for his outspoken criticism of President Trump.

“The Left kissed up to John McCain every time he spoke truth to Trump but can’t handle his daughter speaking her own mind when it doesn’t fit neatly into a progressive world view? Open your mind,” Scarborough added.

Former Iraqi refugee trying to unseat Ilhan Omar: She is doing ‘irreparable harm’ to the country

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is doing “irreparable” damage to the United States, according to Dalia Al-Aqidi, an Iraqi refugee who is running as a Republican to unseat Omar in November.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Friday with hosts Pete Hegseth and Ainsley Earhardt, Al-Aqidi said her opponent was harming Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District with hateful rhetoric.

IRAQI REFUGEE LAUNCHES GOP CHALLENGE TO ILHAN OMAR: ‘SHE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED’

“As an American citizen, my duty is to defend my country and my duty is to stand up to her hatred and racism that she’s spreading within her community, within the country, and even worldwide,” Al-Aqidi said. “Ilhan Omar is harming every American with her hatred, her standing against what we believe in, [and] against our own Constitution.”

A former White House correspondent, Al-Aqidi told the “Fox & Friends” anchors that America “is her dream.”

“I came to the U.S. more than 25 years ago. So, basically, I’m not a refugee anymore. I’m not an Iraqi anymore. I’m an American. Period.”

“America, for me, is my country. America opened the doors for me,” she stated.

According to the New York Post, Al-Aqidi and her family fled Iraq to escape Saddam Hussein’s terrorist regime when she was in her 20s and they became U.S. citizens in the early 1990s. Omar fled war-torn Somalia with her family at the age of 9.

Dalia Al-Aqidi is looking to challenge Rep. Ilhan Omar.

“I believe in building bridges,” Al-Aqidi stated. “We are not enemies. We are all American and we can fight together and we can discuss issues together.”

“She doesn’t care about her district. She’s done nothing for her district. All she’s done is to harm her district [and] harm her followers,” she said.

Al-Aqidi joins several Republican challengers in the fight for the state, including businessman Lacy Johnson, special education professional Danielle Stella, minister and missionary Lucia Vogel, activist Alley Waterbury, and former auto sales manager Brent Whaley.

That said, Omar won her district by a landslide in 2018.

“So many now, they are looking for someone else,” Al-Aqidi noted. “And I’m here to say, ‘Do you know what? We are Americans, we’re not divided. We all love our country and let’s not take your hate [for President] Trump against America. We are all Americans and we can stand together, defend our country.'”
