MSNBC Thanks 'Loyal Viewer' Trump After Hosts Read Insulting Statement Aloud

Morning Joe and Mika B.
Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ridiculed Donald Trump Monday after he issued a statement trashing their MSNBC show.
The former president marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day by sending out a statement insulting the cable news program, saying their ratings are low and then misusing a word to criticize them.
"They are having an extremely hard time finding an audience to listen to the Fake News they spurn,” Trump wrote, saying the opposite of what he was apparently trying to convey.

“We do spurn fake news,” Brzezinski noted, correctly using the word with its definition of “reject with disdain or contempt.”

TVNL Comment: How does such an igorant man as Trump still have a following?  He's as embarrassing as anyone can possibly be.  Wake up,  Trumpers.  You're better than that.



Media groups protest limits on access to trial for ex-officers in George Floyd death

US District Judge Paul MagnusonA coalition of media groups says restrictions on access to the federal civil rights trial of three former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's death amount to an unconstitutional closing of the courtroom.

Citing the risks of the pandemic, U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson has restricted the number of people who may be in his courtroom for the proceedings against Tou Thao, J. Kueng and Thomas Lane on charges that they deprived Floyd of his rights while acting under government authority. Jury selection begins Thursday. Magnuson has also restricted how much can be seen on a closed-circuit feed of the proceedings, which will be relayed to overflow rooms where only a limited number of journalists and members of the public can watch.


Jan 6 committee could get some Trump White House documents as soon as Wednesday

Trump WH papers released to Jan 6 Committee

A special House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack could get access to a small portion of Trump White House documents as soon as Wednesday evening, according to a court filing late Tuesday, even as the former president continues a high-stakes bid to block such a release.

The National Archives, the repository for White House files, was scheduled to release about a half-dozen pages of records that, unlike other tranches of documents, had not been blocked from release as Trump pursues a Supreme Court challenge to the House committee's demand for a swath of his White House records, officials said.

"Absent an intervening court order, the Archivist intends to release records from the fourth tranche to the Committee at 6:00 pm tomorrow," acting Assistant Attorney General Brian Boynton wrote in a letter to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

According to the Justice filing, Trump attorneys had "not raised any arguments about those six pages in this appeal."



CNN: Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle's phone records subpoenaed by January 6 committee

Eric Trump and Don Jr.'s girlfriendThe House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol has subpoenaed and obtained records of phone numbers associated with one of former President Donald Trump's children, Eric Trump, as well as Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr., sources tell CNN.

It appears to be the first time the select committee has issued a subpoena that targeted a member of the Trump family, in what marks a significant escalation of the investigation into Trump's role in the January 6 insurrection. The decision to subpoena communication records involving the Trump family underscores the aggressive tack the committee is taking as it races to complete its investigation while battling Trump in court over access to documents from his administration.

Neil Gorsuch defied a request from Chief Justice John Roberts to wear a mask out of respect for Sonia Sotomayor

SC Justice Gorsuch

Sotomayor hasn't taken the bench this year amid the nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases driven by the highly contagious Omicron variant. The remaining justices have appeared in the courtroom for arguments, with each of them wearing masks except for Gorsuch.

The nine justices returned to in-person arguments last fall for the first time since the onset of the pandemic. At the time, none of the justices wore masks during oral arguments besides Sotomayor, NPR reported. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says either type of diabetes could make a person more susceptible to severe illness from COVID-19.


  • US and Russia to hold talks on Ukraine in potential sign ‘diplomacy is not dead’

    US and Russia  to hold talks about Ukraine

    The US and Russian foreign ministers will hold talks in Geneva on Friday in a development that a US official said suggested that “perhaps diplomacy is not dead” in the efforts to fend off a new Russian attack on Ukraine.

    With the White House warning that such an attack could come “at any time”, the US secretary of state, Tony Blinken, will fly to Kyiv on Wednesday and Berlin on Thursday to consult with the Ukrainian government and European allies before the meeting with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov. It comes as Nato also offered Russia a fresh round of talks.

    “The fact that Secretary Blinken and Foreign Minister Lavrov agreed to meet on Friday in Geneva suggests that perhaps diplomacy is not dead,” a senior state department official said. “We will certainly know a lot more after that engagement on Friday.”


    US supreme court considers Boston’s refusal to fly Christian flag at city hall

    SCOTUS to consider Boston refusal to fly Christian flag

    The US supreme court on Tuesday considered whether the city of Boston violated the free speech of a Christian group which sought to fly a flag in front of city hall.

    The justices seemed to have little doubt that Boston was wrong to refuse to fly the banner, which was described as a Christian flag.

    Three flagpoles stand outside Boston city hall. The US flag and the Massachusetts state flag are permanent fixtures. The third pole is usually reserved for the Boston flag but the city has allowed groups to use it while holding events in front of the building.

    Flags that have been flown include the LGBTQ+ pride flag and those of different nations.


    Rudy Giuliani, three other Trump allies subpoenaed in January 6 riot probe

    Rudy Guiliani ad three others subpoenaedThe select House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot on Tuesday issued subpoenas to Rudy Giuliani, another former lawyer for ex-President Donald Trump, and two other allies.

    The subpoenas add to a raft of demands for interviews and evidence that the House panel has already issued to people in Trump’s orbit, a number of whom have resisted cooperating.

    The committee said that the new subpoenas were aimed at “four individuals who publicly promoted unsupported claims about the 2020 election and participated in attempts to disrupt or delay the certification of election results.”

    The Jan. 6, 2021, invasion of the Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters was the culmination of his claim that he had actually won the election.



    AT&T will delay some 5G deployent amid aviation standoff

    some 5G deployment to be delayedAT&T (T.N) said it would agree to temporarily defer turning on some wireless towers near key airport runways to avert a looming aviation crisis but the White House is still pushing Verizon Communications (VZ.N) to follow suit.

    Discussions are centered around that proposal that would also allow about 90% of the wireless tower deployment to go forward, sources told Reuters, though it would impact 5G deployment near many large population centers.

    Two of the sources said it would require delaying just over 500 towers from being activated near airports. The vast majority are Verizon towers.

    "We are frustrated by the FAA’s inability to do what nearly 40 countries have done, which is to safely deploy 5G technology without disrupting aviation services," AT&T said.
