Joe Scarborough Scorches 'Most Shocking' Part Of Donald Trump's CNN Town Hall

Joe Scarborough on CNN Trump show

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Thursday joined the chorus of criticism being leveled at CNN and Donald Trump following the former president’s lie-soaked town hall on the network.

“Morning Joe” co-host Scarborough ripped CNN and Trump for a “virus of lies” as Trump peddled falsehoods on live television about the 2020 election, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, which he called a “beautiful day.”

It was “a disgraceful performance” and “showed the corrosive effects of Trumpism over eight years,” said Scarborough.

The “most shocking part,” Scarborough said, was the audience “who cheered on a president who tried to overturn American democracy, an audience that mocked and ridiculed the woman who, a jury of her peers, Donald Trump’s peers, found had been sexually assaulted.”


Georgia election workers say former Trump lawyer is dodging subpoena

Jema Ellis dodging subpoenaTwo Georgia election workers suing Rudy Giuliani for defamation said on Tuesday that a onetime attorney for former President Trump is dodging their efforts to serve her with a subpoena.

Attorneys for Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and Ruby Freeman said in a court filing that they have been unable to serve attorney Jenna Ellis with a subpoena, despite repeated efforts.

Ellis — who was part of a legal team that promoted the former president’s unfounded claims of voter fraud after the 2020 election — was identified by Giuliani as one of several individuals who might have relevant information in the defamation case.

After more than a month of negotiations with Ellis’ attorneys, her counsel refused to accept the subpoena and later told attorneys for Moss and Freeman that they were no longer representing Ellis, according to the filing.


Liz Cheney releases Trump January 6 attack ad aimed at CNN town hall

Cheney ad says Trump is not fit for public officeThe former House January 6 committee member Liz Cheney released an attack ad against Donald Trump in New Hampshire on the eve of his appearance there in a controversial CNN town hall.

“There has never been a greater dereliction of duty by any president,” Cheney warns in the ad, which focuses on Trump’s incitement of the deadly Capitol attack on 6 January 2021.

“Donald Trump has proven he is unfit for office. Donald Trump is a risk America can never take again.”

Trump incited the attack by his supporters in an attempt to block certification of Joe Biden’s election win. Nine deaths have been linked to it. Thousands of arrests have been made and hundreds of convictions secured – some for seditious conspiracy.


Ron DeSantis Signs Bill Aimed At Weakening Public Sector Unions

Ron DeSantisFlorida Governor Ron DeSantis said that he signed a major piece of legislation aimed at weakening public sector unions by making it harder for them to collect dues from members.

Senate Bill 256 forbids most unions representing government employees from having dues deducted directly from workers’ paychecks. It also requires that affected unions maintain at least 60% membership in their bargaining units, or else they could face decertification and lose their contracts.


Alarm after lawyer who aided Trump’s 2020 election lie attacks campus voting

Cleta Mitchell

Rightwing election lawyer Cleta Mitchell, a key ally of Donald Trump as he pushed bogus claims of fraud to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 win, is facing intense fire from voting watchdogs and bipartisan criticism for urging curbs on college student voting, same day voter registration and absentee voting.

The scrutiny of Mitchell, who runs the Election Integrity Network at the pro-Trump Conservative Partnership Institute to which a Trump Pac donated $1m do llars, was sparked by recent comments Mitchell made to Republican donors, and a watchdog report criticizing her advisory role with a federal election panel.

Long known for advocating stricter voting rules that are often premised on unsupported allegations of sizable voting fraud, Mitchell last month promoted new voting curbs on students in a talk to a group of wealthy donors to the Republican National Committee, efforts that critics call partisan and undemocratic.





Trump Fails To Make Deadline To Testify In Rape Trial

Trump fails to make deadline to testify in civil caseFormer President Donald Trump rejected his last chance Sunday to testify at a civil trial where a longtime advice columnist has accused him of raping her in a luxury department store dressing room in 1996.

It was not a surprise. Trump has not shown up once during the two-week Manhattan trial where writer E. Jean Carroll testified for several days, repeating claims she first made publicly in a 2019 memoir. She is seeking compensatory and punitive damages totaling millions of dollars.

The jury has also watched lengthy excerpts from an October videotaped deposition in which Trump vehemently denied raping Carroll or ever really knowing her.


Biden names Neera Tanden as his domestic policy adviser

Neera Tanden

President Joe Biden announced on Friday that Neera Tanden will serve as the next head of his domestic policy council.

Tanden, a longtime prominent Democratic operative, will replace Susan Rice, who plans to leave the administration later this month. Tanden has spent the last year-and-a-half as senior adviser and staff secretary in the White House, after her initial nomination to run the Office of Management and Budget faltered in the face of Senate opposition.

“While growing up, Neera relied on some of the critical programs that she will oversee as Domestic Policy Advisor,” Biden said in a statement announcing the move. “I know those insights will serve my Administration and the American people well.”

In addition, the White House announced that Stef Feldman, a longtime Biden aide dating back to the Obama administration, will replace Tanden in the role of staff secretary.
