Sarah Sanders Laughed In CNN Host’s Face After Catching Him In SICK Lie During Live Interview

Chris Cuomo must have really thought he had a “gotcha” moment when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders agreed to an interview with him for his CNN show, “New Day.” CNN ratings have been sinking faster than the Titanic in recent times.

Routinely called out for selective coverage and significant bias, as well as flat out “fake news” Cuomo likely thought he could regain some credibility as a “serious journalist” by baiting Sanders. Cuomo did not disappoint launching into the expected diatribes and the usual lies regarding the Trump administration.

Cuomo asked Sanders if she liked her job as press secretary for President Donald Trump. Sanders naturally answered in the affirmative and went on to tout accomplishments by the Trump administration citing the strong economy and President Trump’s recent legislation benefiting veterans. Realizing he had no method of attack here, Cuomo then chose to wonder aloud, inquiring if Sanders believes the president’s contention with the media is sustainable.

Sounding much like junior high boy passing notes stating “Do you like me? Check ‘yes’ or ‘no’?” Cuomo asked: “Do you think that by saying, ‘We stink,’ that we don’t like veterans, that we are bad for America, the president says we are enemies of America, do you think that that works for you long-term?”

Sanders all but laughed in his face and retorted sharply:
“ What I think is important to remember is that you guys get to ask the questions, but you can’t always complain about the answers,” Sanders shot back. “You constantly ask the same question over and over and over again and expect different answers and then get mad when the answers don’t change.”

Realizing this interview was not going in the direction he wanted it to go, Cuomo attempted to cut Sanders off, interjecting with: “Yeah, that’s the job, that’s the job!”

Sanders returns fire with a truth bomb Cuomo cannot refute, stating: “No, the job is to get information and to report the news!”

That must have been a bitter pill for Cuomo to swallow, but Sanders was not finished with her total annihilation of this journalistic hack. She adds:  “Unfortunately, you guys quit reporting the news. When I can read a news story and I have no idea what side of the story the reporter is on, that’s a good news story. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a lot of news that looks like that [on CNN].”

Sanders simply does not suffer fools, nor does she engage in silly word games where one side tries to convince the other that the grass is not indeed green. She refuses to engage in the media spectacle CNN’s Jim Acosta and April Ryan attempt to create during White House press briefings.

Naturally, Cuomo got his dander all up at Sanders’ suggestion that he is a mere opinion journalist and then attempted to make the ridiculous claim that Sanders does answer the public’s questions during White House press briefings.

Sanders was having none of Cuomo’s attempts to deflect. “I answer questions all day, every day,” Sanders retorted. “It’s what I spend every minute of the day doing. It’s why I’m sitting here at 9 o’clock at night answering questions to you.”

Cuomo is known for touting the leftist party line and citing approved propaganda from the Democratic party line for line. He has been caught in lie after lie, yet manages to keep his job at CNN because his brother is the governor of New York and his father was the former governor of the same. Without his family connections? He would be asking such riveting questions as, “Would you like fries with that?”

In 2015, Cuomo repeated the lie “a video started the Benghazi attack” siding with Hillary Clinton’s account of the events that occurred. He to this day denies any wrongdoing on the part of the Obama administration. The key to journalistic integrity is being willing to hold anyone and everyone accountable for their actions regardless of political affiliation. It seems Cuomo missed that memo.

Hot Air reported on Cuomo’s coverage of the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October of 2015
“In preparation for this long-anticipated event, CNN’s Chris Cuomo took the opportunity to interview committee member Martha Roby (R – Alabama 2) regarding what we should expect out of this Q&A session. It’s definitely a newsworthy topic which has captured the nation’s attention, but Chris might have wanted to prepare a bit more before the interview. He managed to get nearly everything wrong with his questions and seemed genuinely shocked when he failed to fish out the answers he was looking for.

Here are just a few of the premises which Cuomo fed into the interview. Let’s see how he did.

Cuomo: “But then you get to legitimate questions of well, what else are you going to learn? You’ve had the secretary, the former secretary now, for over six hours. She spoke specifically to what she knew before, during and after. She gave you answers that may not have been satisfying to you, but she gave answers. She talked to you about the threat. She talked to you about her recognition of the threat. She talked to you about her response to the threat.”

That’s certainly a damning accusation. Unfortunately, there are just a few details which Cuomo got wrong.

Hillary Clinton has never testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi. She testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for two and a half hours in January of 2013. (Worth noting that it was controlled by Democrats at the time.) She also testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee for three hours in the same month, which was more than two years before we got any of her emails.

Here’s another golden Cuomo moment:

“[Secretary Clinton’s] been the target. You’ve had members of your party, members of this committee, say that it is about her, they were going after her, you had Kevin McCarthy bragging about bringing down her poll numbers, you had that sentiment echoed by other Republican congressmen. So it’s not just me who’s bringing up this cynicism.”

That would make a great talking point except for the fact that the only two Republicans who have said anything of the sort are not on the committee and have no direct knowledge of anything that the committee has done.”

Just last week Cuomo made the wild claim that there was “proof of potential collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign. Except, there isn’t, except maybe in Cuomo’s mind. Rather than actually look at the facts, Cuomo chose to go head to head with Rep. Jim Jordan (OH-R) who blew him out of the water exposing his propaganda peddling for the lies it is. Facts are pesky sometimes.

Jordan stated plainly the federal government lied when it obtained Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. He also stated it relied on a false dossier to prop up its case during the course of his interview with Cuomo.

Cuomo attempted to refute:“They did disclose where the dossier came from. It is not all false allegations in that dossier.” Any judge worth the black robe he or she dons daily while sitting the bench and takes their pledge to ethics seriously would not approve a warrant if they knew the evidence was a bought and paid for unverified dossier by Hillary Clinton. Nevermind, there is an active and ongoing investigation by the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) currently.

Jordan was incensed at Cuomo’s obvious lies and attempts to peddle propaganda and replies: “You know this to be the case even though you have never seen the FISA application yourself?”

Cuomo had nothing much to say after that, yet he still continues to promote the ridiculous and completely false narrative: “no one spied on the Trump campaign” even after Democrats were forced to publically acknowledge that it was true.

Cuomo and others like him seem to forget that there is a huge difference between “Freedom of the Press” and actual investigative reporting. It is the polar opposite of allowing “The Onion” or “Mad Magazine” to show up and attempt to interfere with the ability of actual journalists to have open and respectful communication between the American people and The White House in seeking answers to questions we have.

Lindsey Graham Utterly Humiliates Liz Warren — “This Is My Trump Moment!

In less than a day, Sen. Elizabeth Warren completely destroyed her career. She released a DNA test and ended up humiliating herself and offending the Cherokee Nation. Now, Sen. Lindsey Graham had some unkind words for her, and he’s calling it his “Trump moment.”

We really have to hand it to Lindsey Graham. In recent weeks and months, the man has thrown down the gauntlet against his liberal rivals. I can’t say for sure what’s happened, but it seems like the South Carolina Senator has gained some serious boldness.

He went to bat for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. After the left tried to destroy the man’s reputation with empty accusations, Graham was one of the few Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to strongly back and defend Kavanaugh. His powerful words after Kavanaugh’s testimony quickly went viral. He’s a big reason Kavanaugh is a justice today.

It’s very possible we are seeing a new Graham. He is joining Donald Trump’s much bolder and intense GOP. In fact, we are seeing this across the Republican Party. Conservative leaders are dropping their pretenses, realizing they can and should confront the Democrats over their years of corruption.

Enter Sen. Elizabeth Warren. By now you’ve heard about her ridiculous plot to upstage the president. For years, Donald Trump’s questioned Warren’s American Indian heritage. The woman has claimed, on numerous occasions, that she’s descended from a tribe. In fact, she’s made a very big deal about it during speeches, rallies, and interviews.

In a pathetic attempt to shut up Trump, she released a DNA test that was supposed to confirm her ancestry. Instead, we’ve learned that she has less Indian DNA than most white Americans. On top of that, the DNA test had to use Mexican samples — not Cherokee, the tribe she claims to be a part of.

The whole stunt imploded dramatically. But we’re not done yet. Hoping to hold Warren to her years of boasts, Lindsey Graham spoke up. Not mincing any words, he said he was going to take a DNA test himself. He was certain he has more Indian heritage than Warren.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is ready to show up Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying Tuesday he plans to take a DNA test to find out whether he has more Native American heritage than she does.

“I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday. “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.”

“This is my Trump moment. This is reality TV,” Graham quipped.

Graham said he did not think much about his heritage until Warren released her DNA results concluding she was between 1/1024 and 1/64 Native American.

“I’m dying to know,” Graham said. “I think I can beat her.” [Source: Washington Examiner]

This is so spectacular. Not willing to let Warren sulk away with her defeat, Graham is holding her feet to the coals.

This Democrat has bragged about her “Native American heritage” for a very long time. She’s exploited it. She’s mentioned it time and again during election campaigns. Warren has tried to use her supposed American Indian heritage to help her career and get more votes. It was a sleazy and despicable tactic.

Lindsey Graham, in announcing he’ll take his own test, is not just showing Warren up. He is reminding everyone of the big deal Warren made about her heritage. He is putting the final nail in her coffin. It doesn’t even matter if Graham has a ton of Cherokee DNA. Just by calling out Warren like he did shows how bold he and the rest of the GOP has become.

Long gone are the days when Republicans cowered before Democrats. They are no longer willing to let liars get away with their schemes. Graham’s epic troll is a sign that Republicans are playing for keeps. It’s about time.

Are you proud of Graham for what he’s doing? Do you think more Republicans should hold Democrats to their statements? Then be sure to share this story with everyone.

Joy Villa: I’m a Republican for the first time in my life. The extreme left is out of control…

I’m a public figure and new Republican. I’m going to take my energy where it counts: the polls. You should, too, whether you share my views or not.

Voting: It’s the thing my ancestors bled and died for. It’s the thing women in America were jailed for daring to suggest they could, too, impact nationwide elections.

I’m a public figure as a recording artist and TV commentator. In 2017, I hit No. 1 on the Billboard Rock and Alternative Charts with my independent album, “I Make The Static,” and have amassed over half a million followers in my #Joytribe and countless red-carpet events displaying my fashion.

Most notably, my 2017 and 2018 Grammy dresses, where I actually wore my heart on my sleeve.

Today we log on to social media to find left-leaning Hollywood think it’s their duty to attack our president and anyone he endorses. I’m tired of the same old story coming out of their mouths; I think it’s time we start healing and encouraging a healthy and respectful differing of opinions.

I’m not mad at Taylor Swift

Most recently, Taylor Swift broke her silence on her politics, telling her followers she was voting against Republican Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee.

But I’m not mad at her.

Why? Well, even though I love what powerful pro-life advocate Marsha stands for, I’d be a hypocrite if I went against another singer who decided to share her own personal politics. I say share and share liberally.

Don’t attack, don’t slander, and don’t dictate. Taylor kept it civil, and I applaud that.

I’m not a Democrat, but that doesn’t make me an enemy of the Democrats, and I don’t consider them mine.

As a Latina, I’m working with my friends in the nonpartisan Latino Coalition encouraging people to register and vote. I’m working with my Jewish friends in the Jewish Republican Alliance to mobilize the Jewish community. I’m in the inner cities with the African-American Get Out The Vote campaign.

More: Democrats’ big miscalculation: Conservative women like me won’t abandon Brett Kavanaugh

More: I’m a liberal, Democratic teenager in a family of pro-Trump partisans. Don’t worry, I’m safe.

I’ll let you in on a secret: I’m actually a registered Republican for the first time in my life. When I voted for the first time ever, it was in 2008 for Barack Obama, and I was a registered independent.

When I voted for Donald Trump on 2016, I was still an independent. For this November, I believe in and have thrown my weight behind voting Republican.

Why? Because the extreme left is out of control. They are no longer the moderates or centrists of old, the kind-hearted liberals who truly wanted to help the underprivileged and champion women’s rights and change America for the better.

Things have changed. I believe the leftist culture is now made up of socialist university professors, confusion of genders, attacks on families, believing public opinion over facts, the news media’s twisting of what was said, hatred of men and white Americans and the slander of anyone they don’t 100 percent agree with.

I can no longer be a part of this group. I had to walk away.

Conservatives haven’t judged me

The right is guilty of extremist diatribes, too. But I’ve seen much less of it from them. In fact, I’ve become less judged by my skin color or gender since coming out as an open conservative two years ago.

I don’t care whether you’re gay, straight, religious or not, what color you are or your stance on Trump. I really don’t care whether you register as Democrat, Republican,independent or undecided. I don’t care what you call yourself; that doesn’t matter.

I may be just another public figure telling you my opinion, but I’m going to take my energy where I know it counts: the polls.

On Nov. 6, whether you agree with my politics or not, register, study the issues, and vote.

Don’t just get mad, go out there and do something about it. Exercise your right that was fought and bled for.

Use your power and your voice in your city, state and nationwide elections. Study the issues, know the candidates, and make the choices based on your heart and mind, not your party affiliation or even what your family or friends say.

I’ll use my voice as black, Hispanic and female, to vote.

As a free American, it’s my right.

Jay Leno: Late-Night Has Become A ‘Depressing’ Anti-Trump Bashfest

The good ol’ days of late-night hosts like Johnny Carson putting laughs above politics have long sailed past our culture into oblivion, leaving us with a lineup of partisan hacks who mistake progressive talking points for a witty joke.

The last of these former late-night hosts, Jay Leno, senses an imbalance in the comedy Force. Speaking with , Leno declared that late-night comedy has devolved into a “depressing” anti-Trump bashfest that deadens the intellect and leaves our escapist passions wanting.

“Late-night has always been pretty topical,” Leno said. “The only trouble is now everyone has the same topic. It’s all depressing Trump stuff.”

Leno lays none of this at the feet of the talent and credits all the late-night hosts for having a unique voice in their own right. He just feels the topics have become too ideologically focused, which breeds negativity. While Leno certainly never shied away from political topics, he always brought a level of humanity to it that lifted people above the grime.

“The trouble is that there’s such negativity now,” says Leno. “When I did the show, Bush was dumb and Clinton was horny and it was human problems. Now it’s all anti-women, anti-LGBT, anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-Salvadoran; it’s such a negative thing.”

“Ultimately, it’s depressing,” he continued. “You don’t really watch late-night TV to get away from reality anymore; now it’s more in your face. You laugh but then you go to bed going, ‘Oh man, the world is really pretty rough.’ And it’s not, it’s one man that causes all these problems!”

In no way does this make Leno a Trump supporter. In the same interview, he voices support for the anti-Trump women’s march and feels that his presence has emboldened women to become feminists; all leftist talking points. While Leno has always had his own political opinions, he had enough professionalism and appreciation for average Americans to set-aside his politics to just tell jokes. The same could be said for Jerry Seinfeld. Both were comedians first and activists second. Now, it’s either the other way around or the two have become interlinked into an unsettling hybrid.

When asked if he wishes he still had a platform to take his own shots at President Trump, Leno again showed that comedy, professionalism and gratitude matter more than political activism.

“I had my platform and I enjoyed it for 22 years,” he said. “But at some point, it turned into a young person’s game. At some point, you need to step back and say, ‘I did it.’ I was lucky enough to live in a time when we did very well and the show was No. 1 and then say thank you and step back.”

Leno now hosts the CNBC docuseries “Jay Leno’s Garage,” which explores his avid passion for cars.

President Trump in Preparation To Fire Obama’s Right Hand Man…

President Trump is on a tear these days to weed out those in the swamp who should have been removed long ago. He has plenty of slugs to choose from. The place is literally filled with them. I still contend they should have been vetted and purged from the various agencies from the very beginning. But here we are.

Trump has been asking since last month why Justice Department official Bruce Ohr still has a job. He’s definitely getting ready to fire Obama’s top swamp slug.

The president asked, “how the hell” he is still employed after he testified on Capitol Hill about his relationship with former British spy Christopher Steele and his ties to the now infamous anti-Trump dossier. That’s a very good question and I think we’d all like an answer to it.

“How the hell is Bruce Ohr still employed at the Justice Department?” Trump tweeted. “Disgraceful! Witch Hunt!” Truer words were never spoken in my opinion.

From Fox News in August:

“Republicans allege that Ohr played a key role in selling the so-called Steele dossier, commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Ohr was grilled over his involvement behind closed doors on Tuesday by the House Oversight and Judiciary committees

“Messages indicate Ohr continued to communicate with dossier author Steele after the FBI fired him as a source in late 2016 due to his contacts with the media.

“I don’t know if it’s improper but I want to know who at DOJ knew and it certainly looks like he continued to meet with Mr. Steele after the FBI had terminated their relationship with Mr. Steele,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News ahead of the Tuesday meeting.

“Ohr’s wife Nellie worked at Fusion as a Russian specialist and did research that formed part of the dossier.

“Ohr, who joined the Justice Department in 1991 and eventually was named the associate deputy attorney general before being demoted amid the investigation into his meetings with Steele, did not reply to questions shouted by reporters before his hearing on Tuesday.

“At least seven Republican House members traveled to Washington over the August recess for the interview. No Democratic lawmakers appeared to attend, though staff were in the room.

“Democrats say the entire GOP investigation is an attempt to undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller. They have criticized the Republicans’ focus on Ohr as overblown and misleading.

“With Paul Manafort in jail, Michael Cohen in court, and a host of longtime Trump confidants cooperating with federal prosecutors, we can understand why Republicans are increasingly desperate to create a distraction and undermine the Department of Justice as a hedge against what the investigators may find,” Reps. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., said Wednesday in a joint statement.
