Kayleigh McEnany: Biden ‘can’t survive’ debate with Sanders or Trump

Westlake Legal Group McEneny Kayleigh McEnany: Biden 'can't survive' debate with Sanders or Trump Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-primaries fox-news/politics/elections/presidential fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/media fnc article 5172be87-c685-5445-a91d-1b80e1b24a61

Trump 2020 National Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” that former Vice President Joe Biden would not be able to survive a one-on-one debate with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., or President Trump.

“Those who are saying [Biden] had a good debate the last time around, he spoke in sound bites. He was on a stage with five or six others,” McEnany said Sunday. “In a two-hour format with Bernie Sanders, this man will not survive.”

“He forgets what state he is in seven times,” she continued. “He can’t survive a debate with Bernie Sanders and he certainly can’t survive one with President Trump.”

McEnany made the comments ahead of Tuesday’s primary contests in six states where Democrats will go to the polls for the first time since Super Tuesday, with only Biden, Sanders and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, still in the race.

Speaking in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday Biden said, “We’re creating a movement here, a movement powered by the backbone of the Democratic Party, a movement that will defeat Donald Trump and restore… this nation.”

McEnany reacted to his statement on Sunday saying, “He has no movement. In fact, he has astroturfed a coalition by encouraging people to drop out, backroom, smoky deals, building a coalition of voters leaving no alternative to Bernie other than himself.”

TRUMP EMBRACES MUDDLES BIDEN ‘ENDORSEMENT,’ AS CONCERNS MOUNT OVER FORMER VP’S COMPETENCE

“He has no enthusiasm,” she continued, adding that he was lacking in donations, “at least he was until last Tuesday.” McEnany was referencing Super Tuesday when Biden was victorious in 10 out of 14 states.

“He’s funded by billionaires… there’s [sic] just a lot of backroom deals,” McEnany said Sunday.

Sanders, who won delegate-rich California on Super Tuesday, said at a campaign rally in Dearborn, Mich., on Saturday that “we believe in democracy, one person, one vote, not billionaires spending hundreds of millions of dollars.”

He continued, “I just don’t think that Joe Biden can generate enthusiasm when you got 60 billionaires contributing to his campaign.”

Biden largely has been basking in new support — even picking up the endorsement of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who just last year accused Biden of supporting what she called racist policies that affected her personally.

Harris joined Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and former Maryland Rep. John Delaney in endorsing Biden.

“I know people try to make a difference between the two saying Biden is a moderate, but it’s not the case,” McEnany said Sunday. “Biden is so far left of [former President Barack] Obama. Biden supports a public option, which would crowd out private insurance. Biden wants to eliminate fossil fuels.”

“Biden is as far left as Bernie,” she continued. “He might cloak it and disguise it in moderate rhetoric, but make no mistake, this man is not a moderate.”

She added, “This man is so far from where Obama once stood so they’ve [Democrats] embraced socialism. They have embraced a veiled, cloaked form of it in Biden.”

Hygiene product supplier sells out of hand sanitizer amid coronavirus scare: ‘We have never seen anything close to this’

Westlake Legal Group Brian-Greenberg Hygiene product supplier sells out of hand sanitizer amid coronavirus scare: 'We have never seen anything close to this' Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox-news/health fox news fnc/media fnc article a5f98740-9da5-56d4-bf8f-79b846292efd

A hygiene product supplier told “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday that he has sold out of hand sanitizer amid the coronavirus scare saying, “We have never seen anything close to this.”

Brian Greenberg, co-CEO of Touchfree Concepts, which, according to its website, sells touch-free restroom products and janitorial supplies, made the comments on Sunday as the number of U.S. coronavirus cases swelled to 400, with cases in about half of the states. The total U.S. death toll has reached 19.

Coronavirus fears prompted shoppers across the country to stock up on disinfectants and nonperishable foods.

“We are absolutely being bombarded by phone calls, emails and people trying to place orders,” Greenberg said on Sunday. “We actually ran out of Purell about two-and-a-half weeks ago and we are completely out of every other type of hand sanitizer.”

“GOJO, the maker of Purell, has informed us that they will have more stock at the end of March and early April,” he continued.

Last week, Kroger, one of America’s largest supermarket chains, capped the amount of sanitizing and cold and flu products customers can order on its website, due to the high volume of demand amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Gary Millerchip, Kroger’s senior vice president and chief financial officer, said the media’s coverage of the virus has made customers hypervigilant and driven up the demand for such items, according to the New York Post.

Greenberg said on Sunday that he recommends people get on the waiting list for hand sanitizer if it’s sold out.

“If you go online, you probably won’t be able to buy the products, it’s just the nature of shopping carts online,” Greenberg noted.

HELP PREVENT CORONAVIRUS WITH HAND SANITIZER: HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN

“But what you should do is actually e-mail the companies and let them know that you want to place an order and that if they’re not in stock, that you want to be placed on back order,” he advised.  “This will ensure that you get the first batch that comes in. So as soon as it comes in, you don’t have to go to Walmart and try to catch it as soon as they stock it on the shelves.”

Fox News published a recipe last week for making homemade hand sanitizer, which uses 99 percent rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) or ethanol, aloe vera gel, and essential oil.

Greenberg noted that there is also a shortage of face masks.

“We sold out of all the masks in mid-January and specifically the N95 [surgical and face] masks, we could not get,” he said on Sunday. “We contacted 3M, who are the manufacturers of the masks, and they are telling us that they will not be restocking it.”

“I believe they’re under contract with the government right now and they’re filling a massive order, not only 3M, but all the other manufacturers of the mask and they’re going to make sure that they divvy it out to the people that need it the most,” Greenberg added.

Dr. Ben Carson: Coronavirus ‘certainly has the potential to be severe,’ task force meeting every day to prevent that

Westlake Legal Group ben-carson- Dr. Ben Carson: Coronavirus 'certainly has the potential to be severe,' task force meeting every day to prevent that Talia Kaplan fox-news/shows/sunday-morning-futures fox-news/newsedge/health fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc article 48d48dc2-7798-5ad7-9041-bea221c09061

Dr. Ben Carson, a member of the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force, said in an exclusive interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” that the coronavirus “certainly has the potential to be severe and that’s one of the reasons that the task force meets every day.”

Carson, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary, made the comment as the number of U.S. coronavirus cases swelled to 400, with cases in about half of the states. The total U.S. death toll has reached 19.

“We’re in communication with a lot of experts around the country in terms of the best ways to contain this,” Carson told host Maria Bartiromo. “Obviously if we don’t use best practices to contain the spread, then we will have a horrendous situation, but we are very cognizant of that.”

“We meet on a daily basis, we evaluate the information and we make recommendations based on the evidence,” he continued.

Carson noted on Sunday “that people who are elderly and who have underlying problems that affect their immune system are much more vulnerable than others.”

He added that health officials also know that the virus can be passed on by people who have “little in the way of symptomatology and in some cases no symptomatology at all.”

“We need to use that information appropriately,” he continued. “If you go to a place where there’s a lot of people and you have a compromised immune system, maybe you need to rethink that.”

“You certainly should rethink getting on a cruise ship, you should think about, taking an airplane trip a long distance, particularly if you’re compromised in some way,” he went on to say.

FORMER DIAMOND PRINCESS CRUISE SHIP CORONAVIRUS PATENT DESCRIBES LIFE UNDER QUARANTINE

When Bartiromo asked Carson if a person who has been overseas should get tested when they come back to America Carson answered, “I think it kind of depends on where you’ve been.”

“Obviously if you’ve been to northern Italy or someplace like that you really want to think about that seriously,” he explained.

The outbreak broke out in northern Italy on Feb. 21 and currently, there are more than 5,800 cases and 233 coronavirus related deaths in the country, according to Italy’s civil protection agency.

“People need to learn how to be responsible,” Carson said on Sunday. “Self-quarantine yourself if you know that you’ve been to one of the dangerous areas. You don’t want to spread that.”

When Bartiromo asked Carson if the United States, specifically healthcare workers, are limited on protective equipment like masks and gloves because many are produced in China he said, “Right now the masks are a bit of a problem.”

“The manufacturers are ramping up very considerably,” he noted, acknowledging that “there are a few obstacles that are in the way, which we are working on now to remove.”

“The other types of protective gear we seem to have plenty of them, but we’re making sure the supply chains are adequate,” Carson said, adding that the U.S. is looking for alternatives to products coming from China, where the new virus is thought to have originated.

“In terms of critical supply chains, let’s make sure that we’re not depending on others,” he said. “It’s the same thing for oil. We used to be so dependent on Iran, it affected the way that we reacted to things that were going on in the Middle East. That’s not the case anymore.”

“The same will apply with the supply chain items and we have a lot of very creative and innovative people in this country, so we need to rely on them to provide the materials that we need,” he continued.

Cancer patient quarantined on cruise ship fears she’ll miss treatments: ‘I really feel like I need to be off the ship’

Westlake Legal Group GettyImages-Grand-Princess Cancer patient quarantined on cruise ship fears she'll miss treatments: 'I really feel like I need to be off the ship' Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/north-dakota fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/tech/topics/virus fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/health fox news fnc/media fnc b9e7a576-4d86-53ef-8b68-bfa38d4c4ac3 article

Speaking on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday Kari Kolstoe, a passenger quarantined aboard the Grand Princess cruise ship with stage 4 cancer said, “really feel like I need to be off the ship.”

Kolstoe of North Dakota, 60, fears she may miss her next round of chemotherapy if she’s forced to stay on the quarantined boat, which is currently stationed off the coast of California and carrying more than 3,500 people from more than 50 countries.

“I’m in a lot of pain. I need to get back for treatment,” she said on Sunday, adding that the cruise was planned years ago.

“The doctor said I could go and obviously in hindsight, it didn’t work out so well, but we thought we were safe and taking everybody’s best advice,” she continued. “So now [I’m] trying to get off this floating petri dish.”

Kolstoe and her husband Paul, 61, said they booked the cruise to help ease the stress of her medical treatments, according to Reuters. Her chemo is supposed to begin again on Monday, but it’s unclear if she will be released in time to make it to the hospital. On Sunday, the Grand Princess was heading to the port of Oakland, Calif., though it is expected that passengers will likely stay aboard the ship for at least another day, according to the Grand Princess Capt. John Smith.

CANCER PATIENT ON GRAND PRINCESS CRUISE SHIP MIGHT MISS TREATMENTS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS QUARANTINE

Smith said passengers who need medical treatment or hospitalization will go to health care facilities in California, while state residents who don’t require acute medical care “will go to a federally operated isolation facility within California for testing and isolation.”

Kolstoe said on Sunday that she has not communicated with the health department, but has been in touch with the state medical director in North Dakota.

“They got a plan, if I can get to North Dakota, how to get services at a cancer center with other sick patients,” she said, adding that “getting there is the problem.”

She said she needs both radiation and chemotherapy “and the radiation is imperative.”

At least 21 people aboard the ship, including 19 crew members, have tested positive for the virus, Vice President Mike Pence said Friday. The ship was heading from Hawaii to San Francisco when it was held off the California coast Wednesday so people with symptoms could be tested for the virus.

Kolstoe said on Sunday that she has heard “nothing specific” about potentially being able to get off the ship on Sunday, but added that on Saturday night “we got our first little bit of good news that the process will start today sometime.”

“The captain last night, when we heard that it will start today, he made it sound like we’re docking today and then obviously acute patients who are already in trouble will be taken right to medical facilities,” she said. “Right now I’m not showing symptoms. I understand I’ll have to be tested, but we got to figure out some way for me to get treatment.”

She added, “President Trump and Vice President Pence and my senator Kevin Cramer from North Dakota are moving mountains really.”

Kolstoe went on to say that she’s not “trying to look on the downside, but I had kind of given up hope that anything would happen this weekend.”

On Saturday, cruise officials disclosed how they think the outbreak started. Grant Tarling, chief medical officer for Carnival Corporation, said it’s believed a 71-year-old Northern California man who later died of the virus was probably sick when he boarded the ship for a Feb. 11 cruise to Mexico.

Kolstoe said she hasn’t “laid eyes on another person” since Tuesday.

“We’re all in this together in these little gerbil-sized rooms,” she said.

Kolstoe added, “The crew is doing everything possible. They’re working under terrible conditions, having to deliver everything.”

She said a man with masks and gloves comes to their door and knocks to drop off food.

CPAC chair had brief contact with coronavirus patient at conference, says he’s not alarmed

Westlake Legal Group RT-Matt-Schlapp CPAC chair had brief contact with coronavirus patient at conference, says he's not alarmed Talia Kaplan fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics fox-news/newsedge/health fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc bde2d870-08a5-5d24-b179-ffee410f8bb2 article

The chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference had brief contact with an attendee at the event who has since tested positive for coronavirus, but he said Sunday that nobody else so far has contracted the virus, including himself.

Matt Schlapp said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” that he called everyone he knows who might have had contact with the patient out of an “abundance of caution.”

“Nobody who was at the conference should panic about what happened,” he said. “We’re going to take all the necessary steps.”

The American Conservative Union, which hosts the high-profile CPAC, confirmed Saturday that one of this year’s attendees tested positive for the virus and is now being quarantined. The conference was held Feb. 26-29 at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Fort Washington, Md.

The person was tested in New Jersey and the positive result was confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the ACU said.

“We’re obviously concerned about the patient,” said Schlapp, who spoke with the attendee over the phone Saturday night.  “This patient’s feeling better. I believe [he] is on the mend, so that’s good news.”

Schlapp said that during the conference he had “incidental contact with him, very briefly.”

“I’m taking precautions. I’m talking to my doctor,” Schlapp said Sunday. “I talked to my mom last night, who was at the conference who is 80 years old. She feels like a million bucks. I feel healthy as a horse. My kids do as well, so there’s no indications from anybody I’ve talked to that there are any more problems.”

The conference is attended by many prominent politicians and White House officials. President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke at this year’s event.

CPAC ATTENDEE TESTS POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS; WHITE HOUSE SAYS TRUMP, PENCE NOT IN CLOSE PROXIMITY

The White House said there’s no indication that Trump or Pence were in close proximity to the stricken attendee.

“I can verify that he had no contact with either the president or the vice president,” Schlapp said. “I can tell you, when the president was on site at CPAC, he lives by what he tells us because I saw him scrub down his hands and clean his hands more than once while he was on the premises, and I did the same, by the way.”

Schlapp went on to say that the patient “didn’t spend a lot of time going all over the conference. He stayed more in a small area.”

He added: “We’ve talked to the Maryland Department of Health. They have been very, very helpful throughout this. They are not alarmed.”

Ex-Sanders surrogate encourages Warren to reject Biden’s ‘racist, monopolistic, neoliberal policies’

Westlake Legal Group Nomicki-Warren-FOX-AP Ex-Sanders surrogate encourages Warren to reject Biden's 'racist, monopolistic, neoliberal policies' Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/outnumbered-overtime fox-news/politics/senate/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox news fnc/media fnc article 02258845-dd9e-5661-9d78-a5b5d569e9d2

Nomiki Konst, a former surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, told Fox News Thursday that she hopes Sen. Elizabeth Warren “courageously steps up and shows her strength as a leader in siding with Bernie Sanders and creating a progressive front against the racist, monopolistic, neoliberal policies of Joe Biden that are not very different than Donald Trump.”

Konst, a former candidate for New York City public, was reacting on “Outnumbered Overtime” to Warren dropping out of the 2020 Democratic race following a disappointing Super Tuesday in which she placed third in her home state of Massachusetts.

Warren’s decision essentially leaves the race as a one-on-one battle between Sanders and Biden, who is surging after claiming a stunning 10 victories in 14 state contests earlier this week. The senator from Massachusetts told reporters she would not yet make an endorsement.

“Let’s take a deep breath and think about this for a little bit longer,” Warren said, adding: “We don’t have to decide that this minute.”

“We would have loved to have her, of course, endorse Bernie Sanders today,” Konst said.

“You’re seeing so many of her prominent surrogates come out today saying that they are supporting Bernie Sanders because they cannot see themselves supporting Joe Biden, who has taken more money from the credit card industry that Elizabeth Warren is fighting. That is taking monopoly money, something that she is fighting,” she added.

She also said Biden has been the “architect” of “the horrible criminal laws of the ‘90s that put one in three black men in jail, [as well as] the welfare reform bill.”

“This is Joe Biden,” she continued. “It’s a very different race than Elizabeth Warren’s race and if you look at the supporters and the platform of Elizabeth Warren, it is so closely aligned with Bernie Sanders.”

WARREN DROPS OUT OF 2020 RACE, DECLINES TO MAKE ENDORSEMENT FOR NOW IN SANDERS-BIDEN SHOWDOWN

When host Harris Faulkner pointed out that it sounds like Konst will not back Biden if he is the Democratic nominee, Konst responded by saying, “Right now Bernie Sanders is the only candidate that has a movement on the ground to defeat Donald Trump.”

“Joe Biden got a bunch of endorsements and some support that came to him in the last minute, that shows he has weak support,” she continued. “Joe Biden doesn’t have millions of small-dollar donations, millions of people knocking on doors. He had a good week, but Bernie Sanders has been building a movement for the last five years and I think there’s a lot of room for Bernie Sanders to take this nomination.”

Warren’s decision to drop out follows the departure from the Democratic field of former South Bend, Ind. Mayor  Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., both of whom endorsed Biden. Billionaire former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg dropped out of the race on Wednesday and also endorsed Biden.

When asked by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Wednesday if he would consider asking Warren to be his running mate, Sanders responded: “It’s too early to talk about that, but certainly I have a lot of respect for Senator Warren and would love to sit down and talk to her about what kind of role she can play in our administration.”

“I think that a Bernie Sanders-Elizabeth Warren ticket would be very hard for Joe Biden to beat,” Konst said.

“That is the future of the party. Actually, that’s the current state of the party,” she continued. “Joe Biden is the past of the party. So if we want to move forward, if we want to defeat Trump, have a different message than Donald Trump and an actual movement on the ground to defeat Donald Trump’s unified Republican movement, we need to go with the movement candidates, not the guy who’s being propped up by a bunch of superdelegates and establishment people doing some political trading.”

Speaking on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday, country music star Big Kenny of “Big & Rich,” talked about the efforts to help the victims of the tornadoes that hit central Tennessee early Tuesday morning, which state officials said killed at least 24 people.

“It’s crazy when you think of the amount of destruction, and everyone’s seeing it out there, it just makes it so real and a lot more real to the people who actually got affected by it than myself and my family who were lucky enough to be south of the path of this tornado,” Big Kenny said on Wednesday, reacting to the damage.

At least two tornadoes blew through the state, causing significant damage near downtown Nashville and Putnam County, around 80 miles east.

Big Kenny said the bad weather woke him up early on Tuesday.

“Seeing the ongoing efforts of everybody just trying to get their lives back in order, it’s just one of those things that reminds you how important community is and how much we can all do when we come together to try to help our neighbors,” said Big Kenny, who participated in a telethon on Wednesday night to raise money for those impacted by the tornadoes.

Big Kenny said people were accepting calls all day long from “concerned citizen after concerned citizen, neighbor after neighbor,” calling in and giving $5, $10, $200, $20,000, whatever it may be.”

He went on to say that he believes about a half a million dollars was collected on Wednesday.

“There are ongoing efforts like that all over the place right now,” Big Kenny said.

“It’s just always awesome to see the strong outpouring of support in this community and from so many communities outside of here,” he added. “I mean, there is a lot of people in this country that have a relationship to Music City U.S.A. and, by golly, we’re going to keep the music playing.”

The damage included more than 100 destroyed buildings, downed power lines and a severely damaged airport.

John C. Tune Airport, Nashville International’s sister airport in West Nashville, “sustained significant damage due to severe weather,” spokeswoman Kym Gerlock said in a statement early Tuesday.

“Everything from John C. Tune Airport almost totally demolished to Donelson Christian Academy, a school that’s just leveled. Imagine if that had happened in the middle of the day when those kids were there. It’s just unbelievable,” Big Kenny said, pointing to some of the damage. “So, you know, I count my blessings that as many people were kept safe as possible and there was [sic] no more deaths from it than what we’ve had.”

“You know, it’s just heart wrenching for all of us. Such a great time for us all to come together and do whatever we can to help out,” he continued.

Dana Loesch on Mike Bloomberg’s struggles: He comes across as ‘awkward’ and unlikable

Westlake Legal Group d26e7df0-DANA-USE- Dana Loesch on Mike Bloomberg's struggles: He comes across as 'awkward' and unlikable Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox news fnc/media fnc ff6aeb2a-f455-5149-aa86-a2aec31ee750 article

Speaking on “Fox & Friends” on Monday, national radio host Dana Loesch said “everything” is at stake for 2020 presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg ahead of Super Tuesday.

Loesch made the comment after host Brian Kilmeade noted that “this might be the biggest week for Mike Bloomberg” with his first televised town hall since he entered the presidential race. The town hall will be followed by the Democratic presidential debate, which will take place on Tuesday in South Carolina, ahead of the state’s primary on Saturday.

Bloomberg, who has spent more than $400 million of his fortune on advertising for his presidential campaign, qualified to participate in Tuesday’s debate, his second since entering the race.

“I don’t think he had a lot of credibility to gamble with in the first place,” Loesch said on Monday, explaining why she thinks “everything” is at stake for the three-time New York City mayor, who has been facing a litany of negative stories about old comments regarding women, African-Americans and others.

SANDERS’ WIN IN NEVADA REINFORCES HIS FRONT-RUNNER STATUS, DRAWS MORE ATTACKS FROM RIVALS

“Everything is going to come to a head [on] Super Tuesday and all that talk is going to be tested.”

She then went on to call Bloomberg “an awkward, wooden person.”

“He does not have that amiable quality that certain politicians do,” she said, adding that “even people like [former Vice President] Joe Biden,” who she thinks is often “wrong on the issues,” seems more “likable.”

“[Biden] seems like, politics aside, you could get along with him,” Loesch said. “Certain people seem like that. Hillary Clinton does not. Mike Bloomberg does not. Certain people … they seem hostile and cool, not in a good way.”

Speaking on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday, Bloomberg’s 2020 campaign senior adviser Tim O’Brien said the former mayor’s campaign is “very optimistic” about Super Tuesday, despite the surging billionaire’s reported poor performance during his debate-stage debut in Las Vegas last week.

The 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful skipped Saturday’s Nevada Caucuses and will skip this week’s primary in South Carolina as he sets his sights on Super Tuesday, which is less than one month away.

BLOOMBERG’S 2020 CAMPAIGN SENIOR ADVISER LOOKS AHEAD TO SUPER TUESDAY: ‘WE’RE VERY OPTIMISTIC’

O’Brien said on Sunday that he is optimistic based on the data he has reviewed.

“We have a very sophisticated polling operation,” he continued. “We’re in 45 states and territories, we have 2,100 people on the ground.”

He also noted that Bloomberg is skipping the first four primary and caucus states – Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina – to focus on saturating voters with ads and campaigning in the 14 states that will vote on Super Tuesday, while other candidates are grinding it out in the early contests.

“All the Democrats coming out of these first four primary states are going to come in to this big ground operation we have and we’re doing very well and we think we will continue to do well,” O’Brien said.

On Monday, Loesch said one of Bloomberg’s downfalls is the fact that he does not seem relatable.

“It’s really hard to relate to someone like him when he says, ‘You know what? You are too dumb to even figure out what sort of soda you should have,’” she said, referring to the soda ban he pushed as mayor. The ban was ultimately reversed by the courts.

Rep. Collins on push for FISA reform: ‘We need to restore the American people’s trust in it’

Westlake Legal Group Collins-news- Rep. Collins on push for FISA reform: 'We need to restore the American people's trust in it' Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/sunday-morning-futures fox-news/politics/elections/republicans fox news fnc/media fnc article 5e42164f-8448-59ac-8aa7-e3c2b0faca58

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., spoke about the push to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) on “Sunday Morning Futures” saying, “We need to restore the American people’s trust in it.”

Collins told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., “is the chairman of one of the best committees in Congress, most prestigious committees, and yet he’s ruining it because we don’t actually delve into ideas.”

The panel is set to consider reforms during a so-called “markup” this week. “We put this off in December because [Democrats] were in the middle of the sham impeachment and they couldn’t deal with the FISA stuff that needed to be authorized,” Collins said, referencing “things that we need in our intelligence committee,” including roving wiretaps.

“But, they didn’t want to deal with it, so we just put it off,” Collins added.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz released a report last year detailing significant inaccuracies and omissions on the part of the FBI in its FISA warrant applications, misleading the court in the process. A major aspect of the report exposed the degree to which the FBI had relied on the unverified dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele as part of opposition research for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Collins went on to say, “instead of actually having hearings, and taking the Horowitz testimony, actually having Mr. Horowitz come in, talk about the problems he found in those FISA warrants, talk about how the court approved these warrants that actually spied on an American citizen… we’ve have no hearings, we’ve had no discussions and now we’re going to put forward a bill that really, I don’t think is going to address the issues.”

Collins noted that there will be “some say about what we’re going to be putting forward.”

GRAHAM REVEALS BIG QUESTIONS HE HAS AHEAD OF SENATE FISA PROBE

Also speaking with Bartiromo on Sunday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., revealed key questions he had ahead of his panel’s investigation this week into the start of the Russia probe that began in secret during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, as well as the FBI’s use of FISA to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Collins went on to say that if America could not trust FISA, “then people will not have confidence that our intelligence communities are doing what they need to be doing and being able to use this court properly.”

Collins also said, “Hopefully we’ll be able to make some changes to it” so that it could restore the “trust factor.”

Rep. Ratcliffe on Russia reportedly trying to interfere with 2020 election: Dems ‘leaked information that’s not accurate’

Westlake Legal Group ratcliffe-use Rep. Ratcliffe on Russia reportedly trying to interfere with 2020 election: Dems 'leaked information that’s not accurate' Talia Kaplan fox-news/shows/sunday-morning-futures fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 24e79152-996f-590f-98aa-8309a991eec6

In an exclusive interview on “Sunday Morning Futures,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, addressed reports that Russia is allegedly trying to interfere with 2020 election, saying Democrats “leaked information that’s not accurate.”

Ratcliffe, who serves on the House Judiciary and House Intelligence Committees, made the comment in response to host Maria Bartiromo, who asked him what happened during a meeting he attended earlier this month when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., brought up the issue of Russia meddling.

“You’re asking me about details of a classified briefing that was intended to remain secret, you’re asking me about it because it has been reported on by the New York Times,” the Texas congressman told Bartiromo. “It’s all too familiar.”

Ratcliffe had referenced a New York Times article, which reported, citing “five people familiar with the matter,” that intelligence officials warned House lawmakers earlier this month that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump reelected.

The article said that even though intelligence officials have reportedly told lawmakers before that Russia’s interference campaign was continuing, the briefing “included what appeared to be new information: that Russia intended to interfere with the 2020 Democratic primaries as well as the general election.”

FISC SLAMS FBI, SAYS ‘FREQUENCY’ OF ERRORS AND INACCURACIES CALLS INTO QUESTION PREVIOUS FISA WARRANT APPLICATIONS

Ratcliffe told Bartiromo on Sunday that anytime there’s a story “that is allegedly anti-Trump or negative for the president, it shows up in newspapers because either Democratic members or Democratic staffers leak it.”

“The problem is in this case, they’ve leaked information that’s not accurate,” he added.

He then went on to explain that “the narrative often from Democrats and the media is that Republicans don’t think the Russians have meddled in our election. They did.”

“They meddled in 2016, they are going to meddle in 2020,” he continued. “That’s not the issue. The issue is why Russia is being so successful in shaking American confidence in the integrity of our elections. And the reason is, it’s because Democrats keep perpetuating and accentuating and proliferating Russian propaganda for their political gain and for their political motivation against Donald Trump.”

Ratcliffe said, “It’s Democrats that created the Steele dossier and pedaled it to our law enforcement and intelligence communities.”

Former British spy Christopher Steele is the author of the anti-Trump dossier of salacious and unverified claims about the president’s ties to Russia.

The dossier’s more sensational claims were not substantiated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose report found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Steele’s now-infamous dossier and research surrounding the 2016 presidential election provided much of the information used in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application and renewals, but Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz found that the FBI did not have any specific information corroborating allegations against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page from Steele’s reporting.

In December, Horowitz released the highly anticipated findings from his nearly two-year review concerning the origins of the Russia investigation and the issuance of FISA warrants for Page. The report said investigators found no intentional misconduct or political bias surrounding either the launch of the Trump-Russia investigation or efforts to seek the controversial FISA warrant to monitor Page in the early stages of that probe. However, it was revealed there were at least 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the Page FISA applications.

On Sunday Ratcliffe said Democrats allegedly created the Steele dossier and gave it to law enforcement “so the Democrats could falsely accuse the president of conspiring with Russia for the better part of three years now, something that Bob Mueller said absolutely wasn’t the case.”

“It was the Democrats that put out a memo saying that everything had been done appropriately at the FISA court and that there wasn’t illegal surveillance,” he continued. “All of these things have been done by Democrats … for their political gain, but has promoted everything that Russia has tried to accomplish and the Democrats have been their biggest allies.”
