Severino blasts Sotomayor over rebuke of GOP-appointed justices

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino reacted to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s scathing rebuke of the court’s decision to allow the Trump administration to enforce its “public charge” rule in Illinois, limiting which non-citizens can obtain visas to enter the U.S.

Sotomayor claimed that the Supreme Court has been overly accommodating when it comes to stay applications, but mainly just for the Trump administration. In contrast, she pointed out, they tend to deny stay applications for executions.

“Claiming one emergency after another, the Government has recently sought stays in an unprecedented number of cases, demanding immediate attention and consuming limited Court resources in each,” she wrote. “And with each successive application, of course, its cries of urgency ring increasingly hollow. Indeed, its behavior relating to the public-charge rule in particular shows how much its own definition of irreparable harm has shifted.”

Severino said on “The Ingraham Angle” Monday that Sotomayor’s concern is misplaced, adding that lower-court judges are repeatedly issuing nationwide injunctions at a quantity never before seen — that is, ruling that their decision affects the entire country rather than the jurisdiction wherein it was brought.

SOTOMAYOR ISSUES BLISTERING DISSENT, SAYS REPUBLICAN-APPOINTED JUDGES HAVE BIAS TOWARD TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

She said that most of the cases before the Supreme Court in this manner have been cases involving immigration policy injunctions.

“This is something that never even happened in American history until 1963,” she said of the idea of nationwide injunctions.

“They are doing this all the time. These liberal activist judges have these knee-jerk reactions to Trump policies saying ‘we’ve got to stop this’.  They are not applying the same laws that they have applied to every single presidential administration before.”

Responding to Sotomayor’s concern, she remarked, “of course the Supreme Court has to step in.”

Host Laura Ingraham said that until a case reaches the Supreme Court, the lower-court judges are effectively “vetoing Trump’s policies.”

On Saturday, Democratic presidential hopeful Mike Bloomberg threw his support behind Sotomayor in a tweet.

“Justice Sotomayor is right to sound the alarm,” Bloomberg tweeted Saturday. “If Trump wins in November, the Supreme Court essentially will become a rubber stamp for his assault on immigrants, health care and equality.”

Hannity blasts ‘Bolshevik’ Bernie Sanders, says socialism results ‘in nothing but suffering and carnage’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6096898958001_6096890350001-vs Hannity blasts 'Bolshevik' Bernie Sanders, says socialism results 'in nothing but suffering and carnage' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc d23b0911-fb92-5e2f-8d0a-1a4ffd09da15 article

Sean Hannity focused his attention Monday night on Democratic presidential frontrunner Bernie Sanders, admonishing him for his policies, his past, and his recent controversial positions.

“I always tell you every two years, every four years, what’s the Democratic playbook against Republicans? Always centers around identity politics. Republicans are racist, sexist, misogynist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic,” Hannity said on his television program. “They want dirty air [and] water. They want grandma and grandpa to eat dog food and cat food.”

“But before they get to run those phony ads, well, they get to do to each other what they do to Republicans every two and four years,” Hannity added.

BERNIE SANDERS’ BIG NEVADA WIN PUTS SOCIALIST SENATOR IN DRIVER’S SEAT AS OTHERS SCRAMBLE

Hannity brought up an article written in 1972 by the self-described democratic socialist wherein Sanders mused on what he called women’s “rape fantasies.”

“In a piece entitled ‘Man-and-Woman,’ Sanders writes about various ‘rape fantasies,’ [in] one section writing, ‘A woman enjoys intercourse with her man as she’s fantasizing about being raped by three men simultaneously,'” Hannity said.  “Move over creepy Joe [Biden] and former Mayor [Mike] Bloomberg.”

The host also hit Sanders for his comments defending Cuba and Fidel Castro, from this weekend’s CBS News “60 Minutes” interview.

” [In] 1989, ‘Bolshevik’ Bernie, well, he visited communist Cuba where he was heaping praise on the Castro regime, praising their free health care, free education, free housing. And just this weekend, Sanders continued to praise Cuba’s socialist dictatorship, lauding its literacy rate,” Hannity said. “Wow. How can you be this disconnected?”

Sanders told interviewer Anderson Cooper that he was “very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba. But, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know, when Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program.”

Hannity then slammed Sanders and Democrats for being sympathetic to socialism.

“They want to decide what you eat, what you say, where you live and how you make your living and how much you can make,” Hannity said. “Sounds familiar? It should because this kind of all-powerful, centralized, socialist, statist government has been tried all over the world and it has resulted — every single solitary time, without exception — in nothing but suffering and carnage for the people they promised to help so much.”

MSNBC’s hostile coverage of Sanders hits boiling point as he solidifies front-runner status

Westlake Legal Group Bernie-Sanders-MSNBC-Logo-AP MSNBC's hostile coverage of Sanders hits boiling point as he solidifies front-runner status Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/us/us-regions/west/nevada fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc article 0529bcdd-a1fa-548c-ab2d-22897cd7b687

MSNBC has long been hostile to the Sanders candidacy but his stunning victory at last Saturday’s Nevada caucus has the peacock network sounding the alarm that his path to clinching the Democratic nomination is becoming clearer for the self-described socialist.

The liberal network’s coverage of the Nevada race had many on-air personalities expressing their panic as Sanders continues to solidify his front-runner status.

“I’m reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940. And the general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’ and Churchill says, ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over,'” MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on Saturday, sparking calls for his resignation on social media. He apologized for the remarks Monday night.

The Nazi comparison came days after Matthews’ colleague Chuck Todd suggested that Sanders’ supporters were part of a “digital brownshirt brigade,” which was condemned by the Anti-Defamation League.

MSNBC’S CHRIS MATTHEWS MAKE ON-AIR APOLOGY TO SANDERS FOR LINKING NEVADA VICTORY TO NAZI RISE: ‘I WAS WRONG’

MSNBC welcomed back Democratic strategist James Carville during its Nevada coverage, where he suggested that the media should have a more active role in stressing the “risks” a Sanders candidacy has.

“I don’t know if us in the media are sufficiently telling people what are the risks that you’re running by doing this,” Carville said.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace accused Sanders, along with President Trump, of using “dark art” on the campaign trail, dismissing his support as a “squeaky, angry minority” within the Democrat Party.

Host Joy Reid warned Democrats that they need to “sober up” in order to stop Sanders.

Leading up the Nevada caucus, MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch said he was “absolutely panicked” at the idea that Sanders would face off against Trump in a general election.

“Is anybody panicked beside me in that it does look like Sanders is rolling and that two-thirds of the country thinks we’re going in the right direction, when you have a guy who wants to burn it down?” Deutsch said last week. “To me, I just don’t see him having any shot in a general election, and I’m panicked. I am absolutely panicked.”

On the eve of the Nevada caucus, NBC News published a lengthy report of Sanders’ history of praising Socialist regimes the outlet claims have been “long-buried,” something critics suggested his remarks have only been “buried” by the media.

Such panic has continued since the Nevada contest as well. On Monday, “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough seemed to suggest that Senators Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., should “get out” of the race in order to prevent Sanders from clinching the nomination after “disappointing” turnouts.

MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt declared that Sanders’ surge in the Democratic race is a sign of a “second cult of personality,” the first one apparently belonging to President Trump.

“And if there’s only one thing that’s worse for democracy than one cult of personality in the country, I would argue maybe it’s two,” Schmidt told a panel.

Progressive journalist Jordan Chariton told Fox News that MSNBC has erased “any semblance of the network as a progressive news outlet” after its Nevada coverage sparked so much outrage among Sanders supporters.

“It is now operating as a full-time Super PAC for the establishment Democratic Party pushing out propaganda that is histrionic, anti-semitic, and downright delusional,” Chariton said. “There should be real questions posed, and accountability demanded—both for the anchors spewing this venom and parent company Comcast’s top executives.”

MSNBC’S CHUCK TODD UNDER FIRE FOR SUGGESTING SANDERS SUPPORTERS ARE ‘DIGITAL BROWNSHIRT BRIGADE’

The Sanders campaign has been vocal with its criticism of MSNBC’s coverage of its candidate. Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir accused the network of “undermining” the front-runner’s candidacy.

“It’s been a struggle to change the tone and the tenor of the coverage that we receive,” Shakir told Vanity Fair. “They’ve been among the last to acknowledge that Bernie Sanders’s path to the nomination is real, and even when it’s become real, they frequently discount it.”

It’s not just the Sanders campaign that has had issues with MSNBC. A New Hampshire voter told the network directly that she voted for the Vermont senator because its coverage made her “angry.”

“You can feel the disdain they have for Bernie Sanders’s supporters,” Shakir explained. “It’s a condescending attitude: ‘Oh, they must not be that intelligent. They’re being deluded. They’re being conned. They’re all crazy Twitter bots.’ My view is that there’s a bit of detachment from MSNBC and the people who this campaign gets support from. It feels like they’re covering progressives from an elitist perspective.”

Page Six reported last week that Sanders himself had an explosive confrontation with top MSNBC executives before taking the stage at he network’s Democratic debate, one source saying, “Bernie marched right up to NBC and MSNBC’s head of creative production and began jabbing his finger right in his face, yelling, ‘Your coverage of my campaign is not fair . . . Your questions tonight are not going to be fair to me.’ ”

He even sparred with network president Phil Griffin, according to Page Six, telling him, “Phil, your network has not been playing a fair role in this campaign. I am upset. Is anything going to change?… I hope you will do better.’”

MSNBC, however, could be turning a new leaf.

Vanity Fair reported on Monday that Griffin is “taking the complaints seriously” according to sources, who pointed to live coverage of Sanders’ recent rallies and allowing campaign surrogates to be interviewed on air.

“The Sanders team is in contact with our senior management and they are heard. Phil is doing his best to give Bernie his due,” a source told Vanity Fair. Another said that there’s “chatter” that the network will have more  “pro-Sanders” contributors on-air.

Fourth Watch editor Steve Krakauer previously predicted that despite the “antagonistic relationship” between Sanders and MSNBC that the network will pivot ahead of the general election.

“If Sanders eventually pulls out the nomination, MSNBC (and CNN) will have no choice but to rally to his side in the wake of the alternative,” Krakauer wrote.

Eric Trump slams Sanders: ‘He has three accomplishments, two of which are naming post offices’

Trump Organization executive vice president Eric Trump told Fox News Monday that Democratic front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has achieved relatively in close to four decades as an elected official at the local and federal levels.

“He [Sanders] entered government in 1981 [as mayor of Burlington, Vt.] if you can possibly believe it,” President Trump’s second son told “Hannity.” “He has three accomplishments, two of which are naming post offices, and this is the guy who’s going to issue transformational change.”

NEW HARMONY: AMERICA’S FAILED 19TH-CENTURY SOCIALIST EXPERIMENT

“He always gets out in the speeches, Sean, you know, he says Washington needs transformational change,” Eric Trump added. “Well, he’s been in Washington for almost 40 years and he’s named two post offices.”

In 2014, Sanders successfully sought to rename the Danville, Vt. post office in honor of Thaddeus Stevens — a famously staunch abolitionist Republican who represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. House during the Civil War but was born in the Vermont community.

While a member of the House in 2006, Sanders authored a bill to rename the post office in Fair Haven after the town’s 18th Century founder, Matthew Lyon.

Eric Trump contrasted Sanders’ accomplishments with those of his father, saying that the incumbent president had built a “real estate empire” and then sought the White House “against the greatest odds in the world.”

“He delivered the greatest economy known to any country ever, the best economy this country’s ever had, the best stock market, lowest unemployment, the best military, the highest consumer confidence, the lowest taxes — he cut taxes by 20 percent,” he said.

“I could go on and on and on, but you could not have a greater dichotomy between two people.”

Mark Steyn riffs on Dem worry Trump will return Alaska to Putin, jokes he’ll give ‘Vermont to Trudeau’ first

Westlake Legal Group Video-75 Mark Steyn riffs on Dem worry Trump will return Alaska to Putin, jokes he'll give 'Vermont to Trudeau' first fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/world/world-regions/canada fox-news/us/us-regions/west/alaska fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/vermont fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 424412ef-8655-5710-a93b-fdcd47a35157

Author and columnist Mark Steyn reacted to odd claims by Democrats and media figures about alleged crises President Trump could cause while the coronavirus epidemic is wreaking havoc in places like China and Italy.

Steyn said Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that the eponymous host was correct when he pointed out that CNN has repeatedly run with such stories while much more pressing issues are afoot.

Carlson played clips of CNN analyst and fill-in anchor John Avlon reporting on how purported “Russian” political-themed internet memes are not as harmless as they appear, while another headline contemplated how President Trump — an avid fan of burgers and steaks — would handle his meals in India, where cows are considered sacred by the country’s large Hindu population.

NEW HARMONY: AMERICA’S FAILED 19TH CENTURY SOCIALIST EXPERIMENT

“I would rate them [those topics] very low [in importance], along with the threat that Trump will give Alaska to Vladimir Putin. He will give Vermont to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau long before he does that,” Steyn said. “And that is win-win for everybody.”

In one of the clips Carlson played, former Vermont Governor and former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean claimed the idea of Moscow demanding the return of the Last Frontier was once just a punchline until Trump came along.

“Now it has a new meaning,” Dean claimed. “What are you going to do when [Vladimir] Putin asks for Alaska back? Well, unfortunately, we have a president who would give it to him today.”

In his interview, Steyn said the clip demonstrated the “triviality of CNN.”

Carlson added that the entire collection of recent headlines was “absurd” and “bad for the country, over time.”

Tom Steyer slams Biden for implying that ‘he owns the African-American vote’ ahead of South Carolina primary

Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer defended his candidacy and his impact on the upcoming South Carolina primary Monday night, blasting former Vice President Joe Biden for allegedly claiming “that he owns the African-American vote.”

“I’ve spent more time in South Carolina than any other candidate, I’ve been on the ground talking to people. And there it is, Joe Biden saying [I’m] cutting into the African-American vote,” Steyer said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum“. “The implication is that he owns the African-American vote. He doesn’t have to earn it, but it’s something that institutional politicians from Washington, D.C. somehow own. That’s ridiculous.”

BIDEN CLAIMS RUSSIAN BOTS WERE ATTACKING HIM ON FACEBOOK

Steyer was reacting to Biden’s response to a question on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” Sunday about his current standing in South Carolina following a poor showing in Saturday’s Nevada caucuses.

“What’s happened is you have Steyer spending hundreds of millions, tens of thousands of dollars, millions of dollars out campaigning there,” Biden said. “And so I think a lot’s happening in terms of the amount of money being spent by the billionaires to try to cut into the African-American vote.”

“Let’s be clear. That is insulting because the implication is that African-American voters aren’t out there listening to candidates, listening what they have to say, trying to figure it out,” Steyer said. “That’s actually what they are doing. That’s why I’ve loved South Carolina, is actually being here and talking to those people about what’s going on here.”

Steyer also ripped President Trump’s record on the economy, in particular for Latino and African-American voters.

“Mr. Trump’s lying on the economy,” Steyer said. “He opens his mouth, he talks about how good he is on the economy, he stinks on the economy.”

MacCallum pressed Steyer on the topic, pointing out that recent polling says people think they are better off under the Trump economy.

“That is a series of people repeating what Mr. Trump is saying,” Steyer responded, “and nobody’s pushing back.”

New Harmony: America’s failed 19th-century socialist experiment

Westlake Legal Group Video-74 New Harmony: America's failed 19th-century socialist experiment Samuel Chamberlain fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/shows/special-report fox-news/politics/socialism fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc f3254037-d0db-5d6b-aa0a-30d287c8fb9f Charles Creitz article

(Ed. note: This article has been adapted from the six-part Fox Nation series “The Unauthorized History of Socialism,” hosted by Bret Baier.)

The history of socialism in America did not begin with Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Rather, it began in 1825 on the banks of the Wabash River in Indiana.

On April 27 of that year, Robert Owen, a Welsh textile manufacturer-turned-philanthropist, welcomed 800 eager arrivals to the settlement he had christened New Harmony.

New Harmony was to be a “community of equality” heralding a new way of life. Owen’s followers would soon coin a new name for his vision: “utopian socialism.”

BERNIE SANDERS’ DEFENSE OF CASTRO’S CUBA EVOKES SOCIALISM’S BRUTAL HISTORY

On July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, Owen issued his own variation, what he called the “Declaration of Mental Independence.” From that day forward, Owen proclaimed, men would be free from what he called a “trinity of the most monstrous evils that could be combined to inflict mental and physical evil upon the whole race … I refer to private property, absurd and irrational systems of religion and marriage founded upon individual property.”

The quest to do away with private property would animate the philosophy of socialism for the next 150 years.

Intellectuals were drawn to Owen and the promise of New Harmony, but managing the community’s resources without individual ownership proved highly inefficient. One New Harmony member wrote that “even salads were deposited in the store to be handed out, making 10,000 unnecessary steps [and] causing them to come to the tables in a wilted, deadened state.”

“In the end, I think one of the problems in New Harmony was that it was a big group of idealists in one place — in a very isolated place,” says Connie Weinzapfel, longtime director of the Historic New Harmony site. “They spent a lot of time thinking about the idea of a perfect community. Ultimately you had a lot of thinkers and not enough doers.”

After two years, several re-organizations, and seven different constitutions, Owen’s great experiment collapsed.

“Owen had a very hard time acknowledging that there was a failure at New Harmony,” says Joshua Muravchik, author of the 2003 book “Heaven on Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism.” “And through a period of many months when everyone around him, including his sons, was saying, ‘Things are falling apart,’ Owen was saying, ‘Things are going great here.’

“But eventually, he couldn’t keep up that pretense any longer because everyone was leaving,” Muravchik adds. “And so Owen found a kind of alibi, I think, in blaming the people who came to New Harmony as being poor human material for his experiment.”

Owen’s son, Robert Dale Owen, stayed at New Harmony after its collapse and went on to serve two terms in Congress. He had a different assessment of his father’s experiment, writing: “All cooperative schemes which provide equal remuneration to the skilled and industrious and the ignorant and idle must work their own downfall. For by this unjust plan they must of necessity eliminate the valuable members and retain only the improvident, unskilled and vicious.”

Jesse Watters: Trump is ‘America First,’ while Bernie Sanders is ‘America Last’

Westlake Legal Group Video-71 Jesse Watters: Trump is 'America First,' while Bernie Sanders is 'America Last' fox-news/us/us-regions/west/nevada fox-news/us/education/patriotism fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article a9a69da4-a313-5104-8386-9492da976ae2

Jesse Watters said on “The Five” Monday that President Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have opposing views of America, which could mark trouble for Sanders at the polls if he becomes the Democratic nominee.

Watters told his co-host Juan Williams that Williams and MSNBC host Chris Matthews  — who is facing calls to resign over his comparison of Sanders’ Nevada caucus win to the fall of France to Nazi Germany in 1940 — are likely to be “honest journalists” who will not support Sanders during a general election campaign.

CHARLIE HURT WARNS DEMOCRATS SANDERS SURGE COULD SPELL TROUBLE DOWN THE BALLOT

“The difference between Trump and Bernie … is Trump could win Democrats,” Watters said. “Bernie is not going to win Republicans. There is no middle ground that Bernie is going to win.”

Watters added that Trump had shown in 2016 that he can win traditionally Democratic precincts like working-class white voters in Michigan and Pennsylvania, as well as independent voters in other key states.

“[Trump is on] a bigger, America-first mission. Bernie is ‘America Last’ — that’s not a unifying message,” he said. “You have a core 30-40 percent of the country that might vote for Bernie — they might not even vote for him at all, they might sit out. He’s not a guy who’s going to help the ticket on a Senate seat or down-ballot on a congressional seat.”

Williams noted in response that Matthews had worked as a top staffer for longtime House Speaker Tip O’Neil, D-Mass., and classified the MSNBC pundit as a more moderate Democrat while grouping Sanders with left-wing President Franklin Roosevelt.

Watters appeared to agree, saying that “Even people like Chris Matthews, who put their rose-colored glasses on … can see a mile away that this is going to be a train wreck and there is no way to spin it.”

Dagen McDowell blasts ‘talking heads’ as ‘tools for Putin’ over disputed Russian election interference reports

The Five” discussed the media reaction to reports on Russia’s involvement or prospective involvement in the 2020 presidential election Monday, with particular focus on cable news channels CNN and MSNBC.

“In terms of these talking heads on TV, the makeup-wearing misery mongers, you’re never, ever, ever going to hear them apologize for getting it wrong literally for the last four years,” Fox Business Network’s Dagen McDowell said. “Because in their in their arrogance and insecurity, they’ll never be able to admit that they are tools for Putin and also fools.”

NO EVIDENCE OF RUSSIAN ‘PLAY’ TO HELP TRUMP, BRIEFER MAY HAVE ‘OVERSTATED’ INTELLIGENCE, OFFICIAL SAYS

A U.S. intelligence official told Fox News Sunday that contrary to numerous recent media reports, there is no evidence to suggest that Russia is making a specific “play” to boost President Trump’s reelection bid. The official added that top election security official Shelby Pierson, who briefed Congress on Russian election interference efforts earlier this month, may have overstated intelligence regarding the issue.

Co-host Juan Williams criticized the president for not admitting Russia is trying to aid his campaign.

“You know, it’s so interesting to me this weekend he was all over the idea that the Russians are helping Bernie. But he somehow doesn’t quite grasp that they’re also trying to help him,” Williams said, referencing a Washington Post report Friday that Sanders was briefed that Russians were attempting to aid his campaign.

Williams also criticized the president for refusing to accept Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

“The president still hasn’t admitted that the Russians helped him in 2016,” Williams said. “He’s allergic to it. He thinks it undercuts the value of his win. So he always denies that. He always somehow finds a way to close his eyes.”

Gianno Caldwell predicts coronavirus concerns will have little effect on 2020 presidential race

Westlake Legal Group CavutoCaldwell Gianno Caldwell predicts coronavirus concerns will have little effect on 2020 presidential race Victor Garcia fox-news/us/economy fox-news/shows/your-world-cavuto fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc article 1ab9645f-f76a-5922-9b8a-0db77bdcc392

Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell joined “Your World with Neil Cavuto” Monday to discuss whether the coronavirus outbreak that has caused short-term uncertainty in the global economy could have an impact on the 2020 presidential election.

“I don’t think we’re there at all,” Caldwell said to Cavuto. “I don’t think that something is going to happen because we have a very strong and roaring economy. They talk about unprecedented, record-breaking [low] unemployment rates … I think for the next several months, we’ll continue to be in place, unlike what a lot of celebrities on the left would wish to have happen, I think that we’re going to be in a strong position from here on out, at least that’s what it looks like.”

TRUMP PRESSURES COMPANIES TO FAST-TRACK CORONAVIRUS VACCINE: PETER NAVARRO

Caldwell was referencing comedian Bill Maher, who said last August that a recession was “worth it” if Trump loses the 2020 election.

Wall Street reacted negatively Monday over continued concerns over the coronavirus, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropping by over 1,000 points.

Caldwell also touched upon the possibility of a general election matchup between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.,

“When you think about who’s the consistent voter — polls don’t vote, people do,” he said. “There’s going to be some of your older folks, not your young people that’s fueling Bernie Sanders’ rise at this particular point in time.”

Caldwell also expressed doubt that black voters would get behind Sanders in the required numbers to win the election.

“Bernie Sanders, although he’s got one-third of African-American support now, he still hasn’t solidified that base. And I think that’s going to be problematic for him because only black voters 35 and under seemingly support him, not some of the older voters who are, again, more traditional,” Caldwell said. “So it’s going to be, I think, an issue for Bernie Sanders moving forward if he were to become the nominee. But just about any Democrat in the field, I believe, is going to [find it] very difficult to defeat Donald Trump.”
