Trump supporter: President mistook me for an ‘overweight’ protester at rally, but I still ‘love the guy’

Westlake Legal Group 1be377ec-trump-split Trump supporter: President mistook me for an 'overweight' protester at rally, but I still 'love the guy' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-hampshire fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections/presidential fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article a10ba00c-da4c-5255-9278-8c0b008f00af

An attendee at President Trump’s New Hampshire campaign rally said the commander-in-chief mistook him for a protester but he harbors no hard feelings.

Frank Dawson told Griff Jenkins in an interview aired Friday on “Fox & Friends” the president called him out in the midst of a disturbance at the rally in Manchester — but didn’t realize he was the one confronting some actual protesters.

“He didn’t see me rip the signs away from those three people that were sitting near us,” he said.

“They were trying to cause a ruckus and they jumped up and started yelling something.”

TRUMP TELLS NH RALLYGOERS ‘WE HAVE A BUNCH OF SOCIALISTS OR COMMUNISTS TO BEAT’

Dawson, whom Jenkins said is a law enforcement and military veteran, will appear on “Fox & Friends” Saturday to talk about a very special phone call he received after the apparent case of mistaken identity.

Speaking to Jenkins after the rally, Dawson further described what transpired that evening.

“I don’t even care what they were yelling, but it wasn’t going to happen beside me because I’m trying to listen to my president,” he said.

“I think he thought I was part of it, but I wasn’t — I was the good part of it.”

As Dawson confronted the protesters, the president shouted in his direction.

“That guy’s got a serious weight problem. Go home. Start exercising.”

The avid Trump supporter later laughed off the criticism.

“Everything’s good. I love the guy. He’s the best thing that ever happened to this country.”

Later Thursday, Trump turned to domestic and foreign policy, with a focus on the economy. Responding to recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, the president emphasized the importance of mental health treatment and vowed, to sustained applause, “We will always uphold the Second Amendment.”

Trump also promised to work more on the opioid epidemic, which, according to The Washington Post, has claimed more lives in 2017 alone than mass shootings have in the past five decades.

Dr. Marc Siegel: Epstein death in NY prison under extremely tight security ‘unusual’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6072105716001_6072105193001-vs Dr. Marc Siegel: Epstein death in NY prison under extremely tight security 'unusual' Frank Miles fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-york fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/person/jeffrey-epstein fox news fnc/media fnc article 3125cebf-97af-578c-84a4-b28949f20e74

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel said the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein shouldn’t have happened in a New York City jail previously renowned for its ability to hold notorious prisoners under extremely tight security.

“It is unusual,” he told guest host Mark Steyn on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “Where were the cameras? Where was the observation?”

Safeguards — including cell checks every 30 minutes — were not followed the night before Epstein’s death, The New York Times reported Sunday, citing a law enforcement official familiar with the investigation.

Epstein, 66, had pleaded not guilty to federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. His lawyers maintained the charges against him violated a non-prosecution agreement he signed over a decade ago.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN DEAD: TIMELINE OF SEXUAL ABUSE ALLEGATIONS AND RELATED LEGAL CASES

The manner in which Epstein killed himself has not been announced publicly by government officials. An autopsy was performed Sunday, but New York City Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Barbara Sampson said investigators were awaiting further information.

Siegel told Steyn that the number one cause of death in prison is suicide, one out of three prison deaths, and that suicide is highest among sex offenders.

Epstein had been placed on suicide watch after he was found in his cell a little over two weeks ago with bruises on his neck. But he had been taken off that watch at the end of July and returned to the jail’s special housing unit.

Siegel added no “self-respecting” psychiatrist would never take someone him suicide watch, and he found the death odd considering in 40 years the prison facility had only one suicide.

Epstein’s death brings fresh attention to the staffing at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, where shortages worsened by a partial government shutdown prompted inmates to stage a hunger strike in January after they were denied family and lawyer visits.

Eight months later, the lockup remains so short-staffed that the U.S. Bureau of Prisons is offering correctional officers a $10,000 bonus to transfer there from other federal lockups. That’s on top of a so-called “recruitment incentive” that amounts to 10 percent of new guards’ first-year salaries.

Staffing shortfalls are resulting in extreme overtime shifts, in which guards may work up to 16 hours a day.

“It’s a disgusting place,” Siegel said about MCC, calling the prison squalor and full of vermin.

The 12-story jail had been designed to house 449 inmates when it opened in 1975 near the Brooklyn Bridge. Its population ballooned within two years to 539 inmates, prompting a judge to declare it “unacceptably cramped and oppressive for most healthy inmates.”

Today it holds more than 760 inmates and counts among its former star inhabitants the Mexican drug lord and escape artist Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, Mafia boss John Gotti, several close associates of Osama bin Laden and Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff.

Al Sharpton urges 2020 Dems to skip ‘political cannibalism,’ focus on taking down Trump

Westlake Legal Group TV-MSNBC-Sharpton-1 Al Sharpton urges 2020 Dems to skip 'political cannibalism,' focus on taking down Trump fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/kamala-harris fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/cory-booker fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Danielle Wallace article 91b289e0-80d7-54e6-8129-4722778845f1

The Rev. Al Sharpton warned Democratic presidential candidates Friday against engaging in “political cannibalism” during the nomination process and urged them to focus on the bigger picture of defeating President Trump in the general election.

Sharpton, who founded the civil rights advocacy group National Action Network, also addressed the political infighting between Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden and black Sens. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker, both of whom challenged the former vice president’s record on civil rights.

JOE BIDEN WARNS HE WON’T BE ‘AS POLITE THIS TIME’ WHEN HE FACES KAMALA HARRIS IN NEXT DEBATE

“Let’s stop here now, because all of us in public life have done things you could capitalize on,” Sharpton said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Sharpton explained that by fighting among themselves, the 2020 Democratic hopefuls “do Trump’s job for him.”

“None of us are diametrically opposed to the voting rights and gender rights and LGBTQ rights and civil rights of people like Donald Trump is,” Sharpton said of the Democratic 2020 hopefuls. “Save your fire for the main event. Don’t shoot all your bullets now and come into the main event with an empty gun.”

Speaking to African-American voters at the NAACP convention in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Biden said he’s not going to be “as polite” with Harris during next week’s round of Democratic presidential debates in Detroit.

During their debate in Miami in June, Harris confronted Biden on his opposition decades ago to federally mandated school busing. That same night, the California Democrat also criticized comments Biden had made about his ability to find common ground during the 1970s with segregationist senators with whom he disagreed.

During Wednesday’s convention, Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, also challenged Biden’s support of a 1994 Clinton-era crime bill that critics claim was responsible for the mass incarceration of black men in the U.S. Biden countered by criticizing the so-called “stop-and-frisk” tactic used against African-American men in Newark, N.J., while Booker was mayor there from 2006 to 2013.

Sharpton wrapped up his appearance on the MSNBC program by recommending the Democratic candidates define their differences and not waste too much energy and fire “when it ought to be all directed at who’s trying to turn back the clock in this country,” a jab directed aimed at President Trump.

Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins disagrees with NASA’s planned Moon return: ‘We should shoot directly for Mars’

Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins wants NASA to aim its sights squarely on Mars for future space exploration.

The Columbia Command Module pilot discussed the space agency’s plans to return to the Moon with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto during an interview Thursday on “Your World.”

APOLLO 11 ASTRONAUT MICHAEL COLLINS RECALLS DRINKING COFFEE DURING ‘LONELY’ MOON LANDING ORBIT

The U.S. has aimed to land the next man and the first woman on the Moon by 2024, with an eye toward sending a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s. The astronauts also would be the first humans to set foot on the Moon’s South Pole.

Collins, however, said he thought NASA should be focusing its efforts on the Red Planet. “The current plan has been well thought out, but I disagree with it, we should shoot directly for Mars,” he said. “Twenty-some years ago, I even wrote a book, a whole boring book, on a mission to Mars and I have always been a believer in Mars.”

APOLLO 11: WHAT NEIL ARMSTRONG AND BUZZ ALDRIN SAW DURING DRAMATIC MOON LANDING

He also advocated naming a future Mars mission after President John F. Kennedy, who famously vowed in 1961 that America would land a man on the Moon before the end of that decade.

“He was such a wonderful guide for us in the Apollo venture,” Collins said. “400,000 Americans, would you believe, at the time, working on that program – Kennedy’s voice expedited that whole thing.”

APOLLO ASTRONAUT REVEALS WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WALK ON THE MOON: ‘MOST BEAUTIFUL TERRAIN I’D EVER SEEN’

July 20 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.

Only 12 men, all Americans, have walked on the Moon.

Rep. Collins blasts Pelosi’s remarks: Dems passed resolution they couldn’t read on House floor

Westlake Legal Group collins Rep. Collins blasts Pelosi's remarks: Dems passed resolution they couldn't read on House floor fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 94231e8f-78bb-5284-87d8-1a356f73425e

Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends” that Nancy Pelosi’s speech on the House floor was “clearly over the line,” defending his decision to demand her words be stricken from the public record.

The tensions erupted Tuesday after the House Speaker condemned the “president’s racist tweets,” introducing a resolution titled, “Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress.”

Collins said the very title of the resolution violates the rules of the House, since it ascribes a “motive” to the president by calling him “racist.”

“They passed a resolution that they cannot read on the floor of the House. That shows you bad this is. … This is nothing but to get the president, to make a mockery of their own leadership abilities because they don’t like this president,” he said.

After Collins’ objection, the Democrat-controlled House voted along party lines not to strike Pelosi’s words from the record and voted separately to restore her speaking privileges. A resolution was then passed to condemn Trump’s “go back” remarks directed toward four freshmen Democratic women.

Collins also expressed his disagreement with the so-called “squad,” comprised of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

He said their recent rhetoric, especially about border detention facilities, shows the House “is broken right now and why the president is leading.”

“We in the House have to maintain the decorum that we have,” said Collins.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, voiced his frustration with “the squad” Tuesday and reacted to the House of Representative’s vote to condemn President Trump’s controversial remarks.

“I mean they’re so focused on going after this president, so focused on actually getting to impeachment I believe that they’re not going to stop at anything even if it means breaking the rules on the House floor where there is a certain level of decorum that you must maintain,” Jordan said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

The House passed a resolution Tuesday evening condemning Trump’s “racist” remarks this weekend.  The moment was overshadowed by a dramatic floor fight earlier in the day that ended with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled out of order for a breach of decorum.

Jordan defended the president’s comments and his displeasure with the Democrat’s position on the border with Mexico.

“I think the president was expressing the frustration that so many Americans feel about what’s going on at the border.

It’s manufactured, it’s contrived.’ And they wouldn’t provide the money we needed to actually deal with the situation on the border,” Jordan said.

Jordan also blasted the four congresswomen, noting their past controversial comments saying it was difficult to work with them.

“These are the same people who said abolish ICE, abolish the Department of Homeland Security. I mean these are the radical positions they take,” Jordan said.

Moderate Dem slams ‘squad’ for threatening to primary him: ‘They’re not Democrats … they’re socialists’

Westlake Legal Group Squad-Cuellar_AP-FOX Moderate Dem slams 'squad' for threatening to primary him: 'They're not Democrats ... they're socialists' Nick Givas fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 6af62057-fac7-5270-8248-e701e555ea50

Rep. Henry Cuellar D-Texas, responded to the threat of a primary from the four female progressive House members known as “the squad” on Tuesday and accused them of being socialists in disguise.

“I mean it’s this group called the Justice Democrats. I think they’re not Democrats quite honestly,” he said on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

“They’re socialists and they want to impose their vision to Texas and we certainly know that in Texas our vision is very different from … what I call these Justice Democrats, which are really socialists. They’re not really Democrats.”

LISA BOOTHE: TRUMP’S SPAT WITH ‘THE SQUAD’ MAY BENEFIT HIM, DOES LITTLE TO MOVE NEEDLE ON IMPEACHMENT

Cuellar was referring to the four House members who took on President Trump in a Monday press conference, after engaging in a Twitter spat with the commander-in-chief. They are Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Rashida Tlaib D-Mich., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Cuellar said he isn’t the only Democrat to fall into the squad’s crosshairs and claimed some members are being targeted for their support of Israel. He also predicted most Americans wouldn’t side with the squad because their values don’t line up with most Americans.

“I do know that they are going after different folks, for example, they’re going after Juan Vargas… and the reason they’re going after him is because he has a very strong pro-Israel voting record,” he said.

“And that’s just you know, just amazing that they’re targeting him. They’re going after Jim Costa also. They’re going after Lacy Clay. They’re going after other folks. But again, their vision is not the vision of most Americans.”

TRUMP FIRES BACK AT SQUAD, CHALLENGES HOUSE TO ‘REBUKE’ THEM FOR ‘FILTHY AND HATE LACED’ LANGUAGE

Cuellar also praised the $4.6 billion bipartisan immigration package passed by Congress last month, which Ocasio-Cortez and Omar voted against. He said part of the funding will go to non-profits and churches, trying to help ease the crisis at the southern border.

“I was able to get that $30 million reimbursement for the nonprofits and the churches that are doing so much at the border. They’re putting money out of their pocket. So we were working with them. We got a lot of the language there,” he said.

“So when the bill came out I looked at it and that bill had a lot of things that we had looked at. When they say that there’s no protocols or no rules — that we gave the president a blank check — that is not correct because there are protocols that Homeland has.

“There are protocols that ICE has … there’s language that I have added there to make sure that we have transparency and protection for the migrant kids.

Tucker Carlson: When AOC, Ilhan Omar and the ‘squad’ are talking, Democrats are losing

In the series of tweets Sunday, President Trump attacked four freshmen Democrats in Congress: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib. He called them anti-American. Cable news has been going bonkers ever since.

The consensus in Washington is that Trump made a mistake by once again making the story about himself. Maybe that’s true. Time will tell.

But there’s another way to look at it. By singling out these four members of Congress, the president also highlighted their prominence in the Democratic Party.

Six months ago, these were just four young lefties in a sea of 235 House Democrats. Now, they are the Democratic Party. If you don’t believe it, you must have missed the press conference all the channels took live on Monday. The congresswomen said a lot which will help define the Democratic Party going forward. For example, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, explaining that the president is not really the president?

“The remarks from the occupant of our White House — I will always refer to him as the ‘occupant’ as he is only occupying space, and does not embody the grace, the empathy, the compassion, the integrity that that office requires and that the American people deserve,” she said.

So, if you’re not compassionate, according to this member of Congress, you are illegitimate. “This president is illegitimate,” she says because the 2016 election itself was illegitimate. It didn’t go the way Democrats wanted, so, of course, it must have been rigged, three months after the Mueller report showed otherwise.

“This president has been credibly accused of committing multiple crimes, including colluding with a foreign government to interfere with our election,” Omar said.

When Ilhan Omar, Ocasio-Cortez and the rest — when those four people are talking, Democrats are losing. They don’t know that yet on Twitter.

It went on like this, just days after a terror attack on a facility, driven by very irresponsible rhetoric. The group repeated the insinuation that border detention facilities that were created by the Obama administration are, in fact, a brand-new atrocity created out of nothing by the Trump people, and they are a crime against humanity.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.: Keeping children in cages and having human beings drinking out of toilets. 

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.: He can’t look a child in the face, and he can’t look all Americans in the face and justify why this country is throwing them in cages. 

It was a big day. Earlier in the day, new party leader Ilhan Oman was asked about a recent terrorist attack committed by the left and she pointedly refused to condemn it. It’s not hard. But she didn’t do it. Why didn’t she?

Because progressives love it. They love this whole thing. They think moments like that are helping their cause. They’re thrilled when Ilhan Omar and the rest give the finger to their many political enemies.

The problem is Twitter is not America. Twitter is a tiny, foul-smelling sewer where unhappy people share their fever dreams. The rest of the country is a very different place, and the rest of the country finds that kind of rhetoric disgusting. Even the majority of Democrats are unnerved by it. Look at the polls.

When Ilhan Omar is talking, Democrats are losing. Again, when Ilhan Omar, Ocasio-Cortez and the rest — when those four people are talking, Democrats are losing. They don’t know that yet on Twitter, but they’ll find out at some point, probably soon.

Hannity: ‘The radicals are in charge’

Fox News’ Sean Hannity focused Monday night on the change within the Democratic Party, declaring once again that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is now the leader and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is “powerless.”

“They are on the verge of an all-out civil war. Nancy Pelosi has lost complete control of her radical socialist base. Freshman Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman Tlaib and Omar and Ayanna Pressley are now running the show,” Hannity said on his television show.

“Speaker Pelosi is now totally powerless.”

Hannity was reacting to past comments made by the four congresswomen who responded to President Trump’s controversial tweets Sunday calling for the progressive congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.

Trump doubled down Monday calling out the lawmakers for their Anti-American “hate.”

Hannity warned that “radicals” within the Democratic Party will use identity politics to attack any that oppose them including other Democrats to “reshape America.”

“It does not matter what Speaker Pelosi says, what she does. The radicals who are in charge, anyone who opposes them of course quickly labeled xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, sexist, and a bigot and want dirty air and water,” Hannity told his audience.

“The so-called ‘squad’ of far left freshmen congresswomen are now using identity politics even against members of their own party. The end goal is to fundamentally reshape America.”

The Fox News host also pointed out the influence this “wing” has on the Democratic presidential candidates.

“The base of the Democratic Party is so powerful that every 2020 hopeful has adopted their fringe socialist policies. And if they don’t adopt it completely they are trashed by many of the four,” Hannity said.

Hannity blasted the four congresswomen for calling for the impeachment of President Trump Monday during a press conference and for their vision of the country.

“They don’t want to improve this country. They want to remake this country into something we all know will fail,” Hannity said. “They want to impeach the one person that’s been standing in their way.”

Fox News’ Gregg Re contributed to this report.
