Trump: 'Twitter Is Really Boring — A Lot of People Are Leaving Twitter'

Near the end of his presidency, Donald Trump was kicked off of social media platform Twitter for alleged violations of its terms of service. More than three months have passed since, and during an interview that aired on Friday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Hannity,” Trump discussed how he was getting his message out without access to Twitter or Facebook. “I think all of that, but I’m getting the word out because we are doing releases. Every time I do a release, it’s all over the place. It is better than Twitter. Much more elegant than Twitter, and Twitter is really boring. A lot of people are leaving Twitter. It has become very, very boring. When I started with Twitter years ago, it was like a failed thing, concept, a platform, fail. It was failed. And it became exciting. And I think I had a lot to do with it, to be honest with you, it became exciting. Now it is boring. It is no good anymore. The people were telling me.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

DeSantis on Biden Border Policy: 'They've Created This Crisis — But I Think That This Is Intentional, I Think This Is Ideological'

During an appearance on FNC’s “Justice,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) questioned the Biden administration’s approach on immigration, which argued was behind the ongoing border crisis. DeSantis told host Jeanine Pirro the Biden administration was responsible for the crisis. “It obviously is a disastrous change in policy, Judge,” he said. “If you look, Donald Trump had obviously the wall, which we all supported, but also safe third party agreements, as well as remain in Mexico. And guess what happened? The border was under control. So they’ve gone back on those policies, and they’ve created this crisis. But I think that this is intentional. I think this is ideological. I think that they’re getting bit by this politically now. But I think that this was something that they absolutely anticipated.” “So it’s a disastrous way to start an administration,” DeSantis continued. “I think most of the American people are going to be strongly opposed to this, and hopefully, they’ll reverse course. You know, in Florida, though, we’re ready. When I became Governor, we banned sanctuary cities, and we also did e-verify. And so that’s not going to work in Florida, and hopefully, we can do those policies nationwide at some point, but

FNC's Carlson: 'Our Political Class Has Deliberately Decided to Use This Pandemic as a Way to Gain Political Power'

During his show’s opening monologue that aired on Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson explained how those in positions of power were attempting to capitalize off the coronavirus pandemic to increase the amount of power they have over the public.Carlson offered examples of it and pointed out other examples of hypocrisy from those in charge. CARLSON: It is Thanksgiving. We hope you’re having a wonderful time with your family. Nothing is more important or happier than spending time with the people you love. We haven’t had a lot of chances to do that this year, we’ve been pulled apart. Many Americans are alone tonight, more than any time in our history. A lot has changed in this country. But a lot remains the same and we should be thankful for that. In a year when cultural vandals and tragically unhappy graduate students set out to destroy virtually everything in sight from statues of the saints to the very idea of Columbus Day, they haven’t gotten Thanksgiving yet. It remains and there’s a reason for that. Americans care about Thanksgiving and they have for a very long time. Back in 1939, Franklin Roosevelt moved the holiday a week earlier. He said

Tom Cotton: This Time Is Not for Politicians, Press Conferences — Time for Evidence in Court

Friday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) commented on the press conference led by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani a day earlier. The Arkansas Republican argued the time for press conferences had passed, and the present was for court proceedings. “I think where we are is to the point that we need the evidence to be adduced in court,” Cotton said. “Rudy Giuliani and the president’s lawyers have multiple lawsuits filed around the country. We’re to the point, though, where this is time not for politicians or for press conferences. That was during the election. This is a time for evidence in court.” “So you still have some recounts going on, as we heard, in Wisconsin, and potentially another recount in Georgia,” he added. “But this will be decided in the end on the law and the facts.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Trump Lawyer Sidney Powell Responds to Tucker Carlson: 'He Was Insulting, Demanding and Rude'

Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Morning with Maria,” Trump lawyer Sidney Powell responded to Tucker Carlson, who a night earlier had said his show had asked for evidence from Powell to back up allegations electronic voting machines had changed millions of votes that went for President Donald Trump. Powell called Carlson’s requests “insulting, demanding and rude.” “I didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence,” she said. “In fact, I sent an affidavit to Tucker that I had not even attached to a pleading yet to help him understand the situation, and I offered him another witness who could explain the math and the statistical evidence far better than I can. I’m not really a numbers person.” “He was insulting, demanding and rude,” Powell added. “And I told him not to contact me again, in those terms.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Sasse: Democrat Religious Attacks on Judicial Nominees 'Not Just Depraved — It's Dumb'

Monday on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) discussed the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s appointment to the Supreme Court and the potential for anti-Catholic bigotry from Senate Democrats. Sasse reminded listeners of constitutional prohibitions against religious tests, which Democrats have ignored in recent judicial confirmations. “It is a bizarre thing,” he said. “Our Constitution could not be clearer. I mean, first of all, the whole structure of the thing is built around universal human dignity as why we limit government. And the First Amendment has this big cluster of freedoms – speech, press, assembly, protest, and religion as the first one because none of the five make any sense or hold together if you don’t have all the others. And the Constitution explicitly says no religious test. And we’ve seen Democrats, I’ve been on the Judiciary Committee for three and a half years now. We’ve seen Democrats in each of the last four years attack nominees because of their religion.” “Most of them have been Catholic,” Sasse continued. “And I led a charge on the Senate floor to rebuke Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris for when they did this to a district

Blackburn: Trump's 'Constitutional Duty' to Proceed with Supreme Court Nomination

On Sunday’s episode of Fox News Channel’s “The Next Revolution,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told host Steve Hilton it was President Donald Trump’s “constitutional duty” to move ahead on filling the vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “This is the President’s constitutional duty and 29 times, Presidents and the Senate of the same party have moved forward and have done the nomination in an election year,” Blackburn said. “You would have to go back to 1880 to find a time when they decided to leave a seat vacant. So one thing you can depend on is the Senate is going to do its job. Those of us at the Judiciary Committee will do our due diligence. We will prepare properly for the hearing. I look forward to voting for a constitutionalist to go on to the Supreme Court.” “And I think it’s also important to keep in mind that we are fighting the party — or the party fighting this, that does not want to do this, that wants to delay,” she continued. “That is just having a good old fashioned come apart if you will. Steve, they are the ones that want to pack the Supreme

Ocasio-Cortez to Followers on Ginsburg Death: 'Let This Moment Radicalize You'

During a 41-minute monologue posted to her Instagram on Friday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) decried potential forthcoming action on replacing Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg led by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Ocasio-Cortez urged her followers to be proactive in their opposition to any appointment made by Trump, who she called authoritarian. “We have an authoritarian president,” she said. “That’s what we have. He has no regard for the dignity of human life.” She also urged her followers to be radicalized about the upcoming election. “Let this moment radicalize you,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Let this moment really put everything into stark focus because this election has always been about the fight of and for our lives. And if anything, tonight is making that more clear to more people than ever before.” Late in her address, she told followers things won’t be back to normal, even if Biden emerges victorious in November. “I’m sorry to tell you we’re not going back to brunch!” Ocasio-Cortez proclaimed.

Trump Jr.: Mueller Team Wiping DOJ Phones Shows the 'Deep State Is Held to a Different Standard'

Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Watters’ World,” Donald Trump Jr., executive vice president of the Trump Organization and author of “Liberal Privilege,” lamented the “different standard” some in the so-called Deep State, in particular, those working for the Department of Justice special counsel under for FBI chief Robert Mueller.The younger Trump specifically mentioned former Mueller team member Andrew Weissmann. WATTERS: Newly released records from the DOJ revealing that multiple members of then, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team accidentally wiped at least 27 phones used during their anti-Trump probe before the Inspector General could review them. Among those: FBI lovebird, Lisa Page whose phone was quote, “restored to factory settings,” and Mueller Deputy Andrew Weissmann who quote, “answered his password too many times.” If this isn’t the height of hypocrisy, I don’t know what it is. Can you imagine if someone on Mueller’s team was trying to investigate wiped their phones? Joining me now on this and much, much more VP of the Trump Organization and author of “Liberal Privilege,” Donald Trump Jr. There the book is.

FNC's Carlson: Democrats Leveraged Fear of Virus to Gain Political Power — 'This Isn't Science, It's Dystopia'

During Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson remarked on how Democrats continue to lose the coronavirus pandemic a tool in their pursuit to gain political power.Carlson pointed out the inconsistencies from policymakers in defining the virus and its remedies, which he said were being leveraged in an election season. CARLSON: Unfortunately, this is not a normal Labor Day. It hasn’t been a normal summer. In many places tonight, politicians still monitor and control the most intimate details of your life: where you eat, who you spend time with and where, how many relatives you can invite to your wedding. Whether or not you can hold your parents hands on their deathbeds. The pretext for these social controls is the coronavirus epidemic. We never thought it will go on this long. This spring, you’ll remember, we were told we had 15 days to slow the spread. We thought that meant 15 days. We are very little literal, but 15 days became 170 days and it’s still going. People like Tony Fauci showed up. Fauci seemed reasonable enough at first. In January, he said that lockdowns of the kind that China imposed would never happen in

Stabenow: Trump 'Wants the Violence'

During an appearance on Sunday’s “KasieDC” on MSNBC, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) accused President Donald Trump of wanting the unrest, which is turning out to be a liability for Democrats in this election season. Stabenow argued playing up the division was part of Trump’s political strategy. I just have to say about the vice president’s visit. He was up in Traverse City. You know we’re the national — number one in the country growing cherries, and this administration has done nothing to help our cherry-growers who’ve been having a very, very tough time. By the way, the vice president voted to allow the auto industry go bankrupt when he was congressman — just a note. And so, when we look at what’s happening right now, I, first of all, trust Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to do what they believe is right in terms of speaking out as they have. “You know, whether the president is talking about going to Kenosha, it’s my understanding he has not called Jacob Blake’s family or any of the other families,” Stabenow continued. “I’ve certainly not heard him speak about the horror of that — of what has happened to Jacob. He just seems

WH CoS Meadows: We See U.S. Post Office Saga as 'Russia Hoax 2.0'

Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Watters’ World,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows responded to comments alleging malfeasance with regards to the U.S. Postal Service as a means of the Trump administration tampering with the November presidential election. Meadows dismissed those claims, coming from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), as “Russia hoax 2.0.” “When you start to hear what Miss Waters and Miss Pelosi are saying, it’s very troubling because we see this as a Russia hoax 2.0,” he said. “You know, now it’s not the Russians; now, it’s the people, the men and women that work at the U.S. Post Office that supposedly are going to slow this down and anybody who knows the hard-working men and women at the Post Office, like the President of the United States does, knows that they’re not going to do that. He is not going to do that.” “We’re willing to spend the money to make the Post Office great again, and somehow this is one more reason why they believe that they’re going to lose in November and chalk it up to some excuse that has nothing to do with casting a ballot on behalf
