    MADISON, Wis. -- President Donald Trump lost a federal lawsuit Saturday while his attorney was arguing his case before a skeptical Wisconsin Supreme Court in another lawsuit that liberal justices said "smacks of racism" and would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters only in the state's most diverse counties.U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig, a Trump appointee, dismissed Trump's federal lawsuit asking the court to order the Republican-controlled Legislature to name Trump the winner over Democrat Joe Biden. The judge said Trump's arguments "fail as a matter of law and fact."The ruling came as Trump attorney Jim Troupis faced a barrage of questions about his claims from both liberal and conservative justices on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — President Donald Trump lost a federal lawsuit Saturday while his attorney was arguing his case before a skeptical Wisconsin Supreme Court in another lawsuit that liberal justices said “smacks of racism” and would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters only in the state’s most diverse counties. U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig dismissed Trump’s federal lawsuit asking the court to order the Republican-controlled Legislature to name Trump the winner over Democrat Joe Biden. The judge said Trump’s arguments “fail as a matter of law and fact.” The ruling came as Trump’s attorney in a state case faced a barrage of questions about his claims from both liberal and conservative justices on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Trump is trying to overturn his loss to Biden in the state by disqualifying more than 221,000 votes in Wisconsin’s two most heavily Democratic counties. Trump is not challenging any votes in...
    Mellissa Carone, the woman who achieved viral infamy as a witness at Rudy Giuliani’s farcical Michigan “hearing,” was interviewed at a “March for Trump” in Washington, DC while wearing a shirt featuring her own photo from that hearing. A wire service videographer happened to run into Carone while shooting a livestream of the event, and she was not shy about being filmed, immediately blurting out “Hi I’m the main witness in the Giuliani case. I’m the main witness in Michigan. I’m the main witness in the Giuliani case.” The videographer, stunned, pointed to her shirt and said “That’s a picture of you!” and asked “Can I shoot that picture?” He then proceeded to interview Carone for several minutes, during which she teased a new hour-long video that she “just found” on her phone, and which will be dropping Monday She also removed all doubt as to the spelling of...
    A Florida megachurch pastor has urged his congregants against taking the COVID-19 vaccine,  falsely claiming it will 'alter your DNA' and be used to track people down, and to 'believe in divine immunity' instead. Guillermo Maldonado, who is the founding Pentecostal pastor of King Jesus International Ministry based in Miami and is an avid Trump supporter, preached conspiracies about the vaccine to his congregation on Sunday.   'That is exactly what’s happening with COVID-19. They’re preparing the structure for the anti-Christ,' he said in a live-streamed bilingual sermon. 'The vaccine. They’re going to demand for you to have a vaccine in your passport and seal it. Otherwise, you will not able to travel. Because they’re preparing the way in the vaccine. [The vaccines] are made to alter your DNA,' he added. The FDA is slated to make its recommendation today on the Pfizer vaccine, which has already been approved in the...
    Imagine for a moment that Donald Trump had won the US election last month? I don't mean won it in the increasingly absurd way HE thinks he won it – i.e. that Joe Biden's entirely legitimate victory was invalid because uncorroborated 'mass voter fraud' made it a 'rigged' and 'stolen' election. Only a bonkers conspiracy theorist actually thinks that, someone like the President himself whose pathetic elongated temper tantrum is turning into the most unedifying episode of The Biggest Loser ever aired. No, I mean imagine if Trump had actually won fair and square and was now preparing to be inaugurated for his second term of office? Then imagine that his victory was quite narrow, like Biden's, and came down to a few thousand votes in the swing states? And then imagine that just before the election, a major US newspaper had published an explosive story about his son Donald...
    (CNN)Americans could get the first real glimmer of hope that there will be an end to the pandemic that has upended their lives Thursday, when a key advisory panel takes a vote that could clear the way for the US Food and Drug Administration to greenlight a Covid-19 vaccine within days.The FDA advisory panel will meet Thursday to discuss whether the agency should authorize emergency use of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine at a dark moment in the pandemic, when the US recorded the highest single day tally of more than 3,000 deaths -- and some communities continue to resist precautionary measures like mask mandates as a vocal few falsely claim that the pandemic does not exist.These times cry out for leadership from the White House. Instead, President Donald Trump is pursuing a new round in his quixotic bid to overturn the November election by attempting to intervene in a...

    Reuters December 9, 2020 0 Comments U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he would invoke the Defense Production Act if needed to ensure Americans are first in line for domestically produced coronavirus vaccines at a summit designed to give him and his team credit for speedy vaccine development. Trump made his remarks just before signing an executive order intended to ensure that priority access for COVID-19 vaccines procured by the U.S. government is given to the American people before assisting other nations. The summit, held at a building on the White House complex, was put together in part to highlight Trump’s role in pressing for quick progress on a vaccine. The Republican lost the 2020 presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden but has refused to concede. At the beginning of the event, a video was played showing people, including infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, casting doubt on...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – President Donald Trump will soon be out of a job and so will his eldest daughter Ivanka. So what are they going to do next?  Apparently move to South Florida. Ivanka Trump has spent the last four years by her dad’s side in Washington as a White House senior adviser, but now it appears Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner may be moving to Miami-Dade. The couple have purchased a plot of land in Indian Creek Village in an area dubbed “Billionaire’s Bunker.” The news was first reported by the New York Post’s Page Six, which said the acquisition is “believed to be” of a 1.8-acre, 80,000-square-foot plot most recently owned by Julio Iglesias and listed at $31.8 million. The property is about 60 miles from the president’s Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach. Of course, Mr. Trump is a Florida resident now, listing Mar-a-Lago as his permanent address in 2019....
    A progressive PAC that has installed over a dozen billboards urging Trump supporters to not vote for David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the Georgia runoffs is simultaneously partnering with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang to boost voter turnout for Democrats. Really American PAC is seeking to raise an additional $100,000 so it can install over 50 billboards throughout rural Georgia that state: “Perdue/Loeffler Didn’t Deliver For Trump, DON’T Deliver For Them.” In late November, around the same time Really American PAC began putting up the billboards, the political action committee announced it had partnered with Yang to help deliver a “resounding victory in Georgia” by pledging at least $50,000 to support local efforts to boost voter turnout for Perdue and Loeffler’s Democratic opponents in the Jan. 5 runoffs which will determine whether Republicans maintain control of the Senate. “Really American and Andrew Yang understand that the most effective way...
    Christopher Guenzler, 27, right, aims his handgun at antifascist protesters Saturday in Olympia, Washington, shortly before he fired a round that reportedly only grazed his intended victim. Right-wing demonstrations protesting the November election results on Donald Trump’s behalf began winding down in numbers this weekend—but decidedly picked up intensity in the violence and threatening rhetoric that have accompanied them all this month, thanks mainly to the presence of armed paramilitary groups such as the Proud Boys and various militia groups. The pro-Trump “Stop the Steal” protests seemed to lose some momentum this week, with just over a dozen such rallies recorded. However, what they lacked in numbers they made up for in ugliness: A demonstration in Olympia, Washington, on Saturday turned into a running series of brawls, culminating in gunfire, though no one was seriously injured. And in Michigan, a couple dozen armed protesters showed up at the home of the...
    Washington (CNN)It was a tale of two realities in Georgia this weekend. Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, a young, ambitious Republican, told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday that "mountains of misinformation" from allies of President Donald Trump alleging large-scale voter fraud in the presidential election were hurting GOP efforts in the runoff elections for US Senate. Hours later one of those Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler, continued to offer lip service to Trump's baseless claims."It's very clear that there were issues in this election," Loeffler said during a debate Sunday night when pressed about the President's continuing legal fights to overturn the results.The contrast illustrates a growing rift inside the Republican Party, between those who are willing to call out Trump on his baseless attempts to overturn the election results, and those who aren't. It's been state officials -- governors, lieutenant governors, and secretaries of state -- who have been the most outspoken,...
    President Donald Trump awarded amateur wrestling legend Dan Gable the Medal of Freedom during an Oval Office ceremony Monday afternoon.  As President Trump read prepared remarks lauding Gable’s biography and stunning accomplishments as both amateur athlete and coach, he took time out to tout his own record in politics. “Dan attended Iowa state where he secured two NCAA wrestling championships, national wrestling championships, three big eight titles and became a three-time all-American,” Trump said, adding, “He won 117 consecutive matches and lost only one.” At this point, President Trump appeared to see an in to talk about his own record of wins and losses, which was an opportunity he took to go off-script. “In politics, I won two, so I’m 2-0,” Trump falsely claimed, ignoring the fact that he lost the 2020 General Election to President-elect Joe Biden. “That’s pretty good, too,” he added. “We’ll see how that turns...
    Sen. Kelly Loeffler repeatedly called her Democratic challenger a 'radical liberal' during her runoff debate, while Jon Ossoff faced an empty podium after incumbent GOP Sen.

    Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said dozens of protesters, some of them armed and many seen wearing clothing supporting Donald Trump, showed up outside her home while she was putting up Christmas decorations with her family, including a four-year-old son. As Fox 17 reported, Benson released a statement on Sunday saying she had just finished decorating the home with her four-year-old and the family was preparing to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas when dozens of individuals showed up to her home, some chanting obscenities through bullhorns and some carrying guns. The incident follows a number of unfounded fraud allegations from Trump, who has insisted that he really won the election were it not for millions of illegal votes. Michigan has been a target for his legal challenges, with the president meeting with a group of lawmakers and reportedly pushing for them to overturn the results of the election...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump is increasingly isolated in his claims of election fraud as a growing number of senior administration officials are either directly contradicting his baseless allegations or refusing to echo them.As the President continues to deny the reality that he lost, his head of intelligence now says that Trump's claims of voter fraud, which have been roundly debunked, are being taken and amplified by foreign adversaries.Their goal is "to undermine public confidence in our democratic processes," John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence, told CBS News in an interview, declining to say which countries.Ratcliffe is a fierce Trump loyalist who has been accused of politicizing intelligence to fuel Trump's attacks on the Russia investigation.

Arizona on Monday certified former Vice President Joe Biden as the winner of the state's 11 Electoral College votes, ignoring pleas from Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliana, who at the very moment the certification took place was telling lies about voter fraud and encouraging the state to not certify its results.

    Former President Barack Obama said Republicans had made white men think of themselves as victims Wednesday - and that Donald Trump's surprise success with Hispanic voters was partly because of his appeal to evangelical voters. He explained in an interview Wednesday with The Breakfast Club that what motivates people to vote is often about 'the stories that are being told.' 'What's always interesting to me, is the degree to which we've created, you've seen created, in Republican politics, this sense that white males are victims. They're the ones who are like under attack,' Obama noted. 'Which doesn't jive with both history and data, and economics.'  Obama was trying to explain to hosts Charlamagne tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee what motivated Americans in this past election to vote for President Donald Trump.  Former President Barack Obama explained that the 'stories' told in politics often motivate voters and blamed Republicans for creating...

    Brendan Smialowski/AFP/Getty Images President Donald Trump once again declared that he “will never concede” the 2020 Election, even as his attempts to dispute the results continue to deteriorate. “What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?” Trump tweeted. “We are moving full speed ahead.

    One of the numerous White House and Republican officials to contract the COVID-19 virus is HUD director Ben Carson. With the Trump administration news cycle adding years to every day, Carson’s condition was kept out of public. On Friday, Carson wrote on his Facebook page that his experience became very dire. Carson wrote: “Thank you everyone for your support and prayers as Candy and I battled COVID-19. I was extremely sick and initially took Oleander 4X with dramatic improvement. However, I have several co-morbidities and after a brief period when I only experienced minor discomfort, the symptoms accelerated and I became desperately ill. President Trump was following my condition and cleared me for the monoclonal antibody therapy that he had previously received, which I am convinced saved my life.” As epidemiologist Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding tweeted, “He survived after using monoclonal antibody drugs—*before* it was FDA approved.

    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld slammed society for rewarding and punishing people based on words rather than actions. Using Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and President Donald Trump as his examples, Gutfeld compared their responses to the coronavirus pandemic and the way they were treated in the media.

    During an interview with former Jeb Bush campaign official Tim Miller Monday morning, Joe Scarborough revealed that he has no intention of returning to his former political affiliation, the Republican party, after President Donald Trump leaves office. The conversation with the former Bush campaign communications director was pegged to Miller’s recent column in The Bulwark, titled “Goodbye to All That,” which outlined his departure from the GOP, which he detailed on Morning Joe. Miller lauded President-elect Joe Biden for his early centrist moves. The Republican party isn’t coming back to us,”  adding, “while we have a temporary alliance with Joe Biden, you know, I don’t think that the Democratic party is moving in our direction either.” Scarborough, the former Republican member of the US House of Representatives who announced his departure from the GOP early in the Trump administration, followed Miller’s lead. The Morning Joe host noted that people ask him...

    Savannah Rychcik November 22, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is questioning why President-elect Joe Biden is moving forward with his cabinet picks while his legal team continues to make baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. “Why is Joe Biden so quickly forming a Cabinet when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes, enough to ‘flip’ at least four States, which in turn is more than enough to win the Election?” Trump wrote on Twitter. He added, “Hopefully the Courts and/or Legislatures will have the COURAGE to do what has to be done to maintain the integrity of our Elections, and the United States of America itself.

    Fox Business anchor Liz Claman defended Fox News’ reporters on MediaBuzz Sunday amid attacks from President Donald Trump and his allies against the network. A number of Fox News reporters and anchors have called out the Trump team for baseless and evidence-free claims of voter fraud so massive it would overturn the election. Even Tucker Carlson said that while he isn’t completely dismissing the idea of the voting machine conspiracy alleged by Sidney Powell, he’s seen no evidence of it and she got cross with his show when they inquired. The MediaBuzz panel roundly smacked down the Trump team’s arguments, with Guy Benson in particular noting the vast difference between what they are arguing on television or in press conferences and what is actually happening in courtrooms. At one point, when discussing Rudy Giuliani laughing at CNN, Howard Kurtz noted how Giuliani also got testy over a question from...
    Donald Trump Jr. addressed the widespread internet rumors that suggest he’s abusing drugs on Saturday after testing positive for the coronavirus. Hide In a video posted online, the president’s son, who is currently self-quarantining at his cabin in Upstate New York, brought up the drug claims unprovoked while detailing his symptoms. Hide “I don’t have the red eyes like they claimed I had for apparently using cocaine prior to my RNC speech,” Trump Jr. said. “That is the world of the internet. God knows I troll and do my fair share of it, so I guess it comes back to me, in time, as well. That’s the game.'” Trump Jr.’s comment refers to claims made in August that he appeared to have “cocaine eyes” during the Republican National Convention (RNC). But that was far from the first time the president’s son had been accused of drug use. In late October,...

    General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy is looking to the White House for cues to act when it comes to certifying the presidential election for Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump. And she fears Trump will fire her if she crosses him, a senior administration official told The Washington Post.  President Trump 'does not want a transition,' the official said. 'He's made that very clear, and we are following orders.'  Murphy is in charge of 'ascertainment' - the formal acknowledgement of the winner of the election so the federal government can start the transition process. Without her blessing, Biden's team has no access to federal agencies nor the money allocated for the transition process. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Friday denied anyone from the White House was pressuring Murphy.  'Absolutely not,' she said during her press briefing.

    Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's groundbreaking trip to a West Bank settlement Thursday was meant to highlight the Trump administration's commitment to Israel. Instead, it reignited speculation that the top US diplomat's higher priority is his own political future. Pompeo, the first US secretary of state to visit a settlement and the Golan Heights, touted the Trump administration's break with international consensus to recognize settlements as Israeli territory and its determination to help Israeli businesses in the West Bank avoid international sanctions. But when the news inadvertently leaked that the trip was being described as part of the "Pompeo Doctrine," the criticism was instantaneous. "Pompeo's West Bank winery and Golan excursions have nothing to do with America's ambitions but his own in 2024," Aaron David Miller, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, tweeted. Pompeo's visit was in line with the Trump administration's stated policy and...
    Two Republican senators - Mitt Romney of Utah and Joni Ernst of Iowa - voiced harsh criticism on Thursday of voter fraud allegations made by President Trump’s allies as part of a long-shot attempt to overturn the results of the November 3 election. With a late-night tweet, Romney hit out at the president, who has been unable to get the courts to stop the counting of votes in several key states that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden. Ernst on Thursday blasted a suggestion by a lawyer working on Trump’s legal team who claimed that Republicans and Democrats may have ‘paid to have the system rigged to work for them.’ Trump has alleged he lost due to widespread voter fraud, though his campaign has yet to produce evidence to support the claim. Senator Mitt Romney (left) of Utah and Senator Joni Ernst (right) of Iowa were critical of...
    It's been 184 days since the House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act, and 48 days since the House passed their compromise $2.2 trillion bill, both of which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to take up. More than 250,000 Americans are now dead from COVID-19. Tens of thousands of businesses have shuttered for good. Nearly 750,000 people filed first-time unemployment insurance claims last week. The Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), which is supporting 4.4 million people right now, expires on Dec. 26. What's McConnell doing about it all? Running his judicial confirmation conveyor belt. On Wednesday, the Senate confirmed a 33-year-old lawyer, Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, to a lifetime appointment on the Tampa division of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. She was deemed unqualified by the American Bar Association because she has never tried a criminal or civil case, has never even been co-counsel in...
    In the middle of a deadly pandemic, the Health and Human Services Department will actively refuse to work with the incoming Biden administration for as long as Donald Trump can hold off the formal transfer of power, HHS Secretary Alex Azar confirmed Wednesday. “We've made it very clear that when GSA makes a determination, we will ensure complete, cooperative professional transitions and planning," Azar told reporters. “We follow the guidance. We're about getting vaccines and therapeutics invented and get the clinical trial data and saving lives here. That's where our focus is as we go forward with our efforts.” Azar is waiting for General Services Administration head Emily Murphy to issue a formal ascertainment that President-elect Joe Biden has won, while Murphy is apparently waiting for Trump to run out the clock on his legal challenges, even as Trump has lost dozens of such legal challenges with no sign of...

    (CNN)As the US speeds past the tragic mark of a quarter of a million Covid-19 deaths, its President is sulking in the White House over an election he lost fair and square and obstructing the effort by his soon-to-be successor, Joe Biden, to stand up a fight against the fast-worsening pandemic.President Donald Trump is fixated on his failing, threadbare challenges to the election and is tweet-spreading lies about vote fraud, instead of using his platform and power to confront a once-in-a-century health emergency he falsely assured the nation was all but over.He hasn't appeared at a public event for days and has forbidden any members of his administration to talk to Biden's team.

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes opened his show Wednesday going off on President Donald Trump and his allies for trying to “steal an election” while Republicans do little to stop him. Hayes slammed the latest efforts from the Trump legal team (starring Rudy Giuliani) to “nullify the will of the people,” bringing up a strange turn in the Pennsylvania case in particular. “Now, if you’re confused about what Donald Trump and his enablers are doing right now, you’re not alone. That makes sense. Because there’s, as far as I can tell, no real master strategy to what we’re watching. They aren’t making some well-thought-out chess moves here. They’re jus are kind of throwing everything at the wall,” Hayes said. He said that clearly “screwing people over,” attacking enemies, and filing tons of frivolous lawsuits has been who Trump is for decades, adding, “His life is evidence that not caring about other...

    By Zeke Miller and Andrew Taylor | Associated Press WASHINGTON — With the nation gripped by a resurgent coronavirus and looking to Washington for help, President Donald Trump and lawmakers in Congress have a message for struggling Americans: Just keep waiting. The urgency of the nationwide surge in virus cases, spiking hospitalizations and increasing death tolls has hardly resonated in the nation’s capital as its leaders are vexed by transition politics and trying to capitalize on the promise of a coming vaccine. The virus has killed more than 246,000 Americans this year and infected at least 11.1 million — some 1 million of them in just the past week. Yet in Congress, where talks over economic relief bills stalled out months ago, lame-duck approval of aid is hardly front-of-mind. Across town at the White House, Trump is more focused on getting credit for the vaccine development push and blocking...

    Joe Biden’s supporters are telling everyone it’s time to “unite” and “heal” after the election but really they want to stomp on and silence Trump supporters. CNN’s Jake Tapper implicitly threatened that pro-Trump people better concede the election already or they may not find a job in the future, while other left-wing activists started the “Trump Accountability Project” to make lists of people who dare to support the president. It’s become quite obvious that the “unity” the Democrats actually want is unity of thought.

    More than 130 Secret Service agents who protect President Donald Trump, the White House and the first family have been ordered to isolate because they caught COVID or were in close contact with someone who was infected with the virus.  The spread of the highly contagious disease has sidelined about 10 per cent of the agency's core team, The Washington Post reported, and the infection rate is believed to be linked to the numerous campaign rallies Trump held before the election - 14 in the last three days of campaigning alone. At these rallies, agents stand between the president and his supporters, many of whom are not wearing face masks and who don't practice social distancing.

    For the first time in decades, Georgia was a crucial swing state in the presidential race. One week after the election between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Trump, Georgia's results are still up in the air, with the candidates both hoping to claim the state's 16 electoral votes.  With 99% of ballots counted, Biden on Wednesday held a slim lead of about 14,108 votes, according to Fox News projections. But given the tight margin, election officials said Wednesday the state would conduct an audit of the election and recount by hand the nearly 5 million ballots cast. "With the margin being so close, it will require a full by hand recount in each county," Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said during a news conference in Atlanta. "This will help build confidence." Biden's success in Georgia, which has not voted to elect a Democrat as president since 1992, was underscored by his support in the state's biggest cities,...

    By Andy Sullivan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden plans further meetings on Wednesday to lay the groundwork for his new administration while President Donald Trump pursues a flurry of lawsuits challenging the election results in an effort to cling to power. Trump's unsupported charges of election fraud have gained little traction so far. His campaign said on Tuesday it planned to file a lawsuit in Michigan to halt the state from certifying its results, a day after it brought a similar action in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. Judges so far have tossed lawsuits in Michigan and Georgia brought by Trump's campaign, and legal experts say the litigation has little chance of changing the outcome of the Nov. 3 election. Trump suffered another possible setback on Tuesday when Democrats said a postal worker who claimed he witnessed ballot tampering in Pennsylvania had recanted his allegations. Some 80% of Americans,...
    During the Vietnam War, American military officials put such an outlandishly positive spin on events that the press corps took to calling the afternoon briefings the “5 o’clock follies.” To judge from the fantasies he’s been spinning, Mayor de Blasio has adopted equally bad habits. He wouldn’t know the truth if it fell on his head. His press conference Tuesday was a howler of false claims and pie-in-the-sky promises. His declaration of victory over virtually everything that ails mankind would be laughable if the reality weren’t so grim. With a straight face, de Blasio claimed that during the coronavirus, New Yorkers “came together, found a way forward, created something out of nothing, found solutions we didn’t even know we had. And that’s how we’ve gotten to the point we’re at now.” What city is he talking about? People are fleeing, businesses are dying, jobs are vanishing, crime is surging and...

    A national security reporter was heard dropping the F-bomb during a segment of MSNBC Live Tuesday morning.  NBC's Ken Dilanian appeared on the show with anchor Craig Melvin when things got a little weird.  Melvin and Dilanian were getting ready to discuss the Trump administration's transition with Joe Biden's team and how it relates to the intelligence community when the mistake occurred.  The anchor was introducing Dilanian when the reporter looked down and said: 'Oh sh*t.

    Fox News anchor Sandra Smith was caught on a hot mic reacting incredulously to a guest casting doubt over the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s election win over the weekend, frowning and rolling her eyes while she was off-air. In a clip circulating online, the host of America’s Newsroom was heard exasperatedly asking ‘what is happening’ as DC-based lawyer Cleta Mitchell repeated Donald Trump’s unfounded accusations of widespread election fraud. ‘I think everybody wants to know that this was done properly and legally and we can trust the results,’ Mitchell, who was being interviewed by Fox News’ Trace Gallagher, said. ‘And I think we have to look into every one of these concerns. ‘Remember, just because CNN says, or even Fox News says that somebody's president doesn't make them president,’ Mitchell continued.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday said it was “bad news” that a potential coronavirus vaccine has been developed while President Trump is in office. The New York Democrat also said that he is working with other governors to potentially “stop” the Trump administration’s plan to distribute vaccines for coronavirus, saying that its current design is “flawed.” Como was responding to Pfizer’s announcement on Monday that its coronavirus vaccine has proved 90% effective during clinical trials. The trial results are a potential game-changer in the fight against the virus, which has caused nearly 240,000 deaths in the U.S. this year. “The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo said. Cuomo did not specify his...
    Social media giants are purging Donald Trump supporters from their websites citing concerns over 'violent' protests against alleged electoral fraud. Facebook banned the 'Stop the Steal' group on Thursday after it amassed more than 350,000 members and planned demonstrations across the United States. Meanwhile Twitter slapped warnings on Fox News clips of Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham after they made the case that allegations of election rigging by the President should be adjudicated by the courts.  'Stop the Steal' had a soaring membership when Mark Zuckerberg's staffers moved in to wipe it out, citing 'worrying calls for violence from some members.' One post had said: 'Time to clean the guns, time to hit the streets,' while another was of a cartoon figure holding a machete with the caption: 'I reckon I've had enough of this sh*t.' 'Stop the Steal' had a soaring membership when Mark Zuckerberg's staffers moved...
    Joe Biden’s apparent election victory over President Donald Trump on Saturday has catapulted years-old songs back into heavy digital rotation, including YG’s anti-Trump rap medley FDT and Miley Cyrus’s Obama-era hit Party in the U.S.A. FDT, the acronym which stands for ‘f*** Donald Trump’ and which is performed by YG, was briefly the most played song on iTunes on Sunday. YG, the Compton, California native, released the track with the late Nipsey Hussle on his 2016 album Still Brazy, which coincided with the stretch run of Trump's campaign. After Biden was declared the projected winner by major news organizations on Saturday, digital sales of FDT jumped by 740 per cent compared to Friday, according to Billboard. Sales of FDT increased on Tuesday, the day of the actual election, which was drawn out over the course of several days as several key battleground states needed more time to count absentee ballots....
