Fox Host Furious After Commentator Slams Show for Not Mentioning Record-Breaking COVID Deaths: You Can’t Fact Check My Heart



Fox News host Harris Faulkner was outraged after liberal commentator Marie Harf blasted the show for not even bothering to acknowledge the record-breaking number of people who are now dying each and every day from the coronavirus.

“We’re 43 minutes into the show and we haven’t mentioned yet the 3000 Americans died yesterday, more than on 9/11, and every day for a while we’re gonna have that many American deaths,” liberal commentator Marie Harf told the co-hosts on “Outnumbered.”

“I think that there are public health officials and leaders in this country who are drowning, and there are people are dying,” she continued, suggesting that the federal government has done little to support state and local officials.

“Congress should be doing more to help businesses,” she added. “But as we debate these regulations we cannot lose sight of the tragedy that is unfolding. Every single day in this country in large part because people want to go about life is normal. And a lot of people don’t want to wear masks, even though the evidence is overwhelming that they save lives.”

Faulkner was furious, accusing Harf of taking “a shot at us,” while insisting she keep her “judgment someplace where you know you can fact check it because you can’t see my heart.”

She then slammed Harf, charging, “What exactly are you trying to say? That is offensive, and it is not true. It is not true.”

Faulkner stuck to the GOP agenda, insisting that the “best way to protect those people that we love so much, is to make sure that the decisions that we make give them longevity, after the pandemic as well and to get what we do, right, based on the science.”

She never mentioned social distancing, wearing masks, and just staying home as much as possible.

“Please keep your judgment someplace where you know you can fact check it,” Faulker raged, “because you can’t see my heart and trust me when I tell you, it hurts, all of us to lose those Americans and people around the world.”

President Trump, a study showed, has been the largest spreader of coronavirus misinformation. But as The Washington Post has reported, “Fox News may have kept millions from taking the coronavirus threat seriously.”

Trump’s New Social-Media Investors Didn’t Know He Was Involved When They Loaned $300 Million: Report



Former president Donald Trump’s media venture, Truth Social, could give his new company access to $300 million.

However, some of the investors who funded the venture weren’t aware that Trump would be involved, according to a report from the New York Times.

“The details of Mr. Trump’s latest partnership were vague,” the Times reports. “The statement he issued was reminiscent of the kind of claims he made about his business dealings in New York as a real estate developer. It was replete with high-dollar amounts and superlatives that could not be verified.”

Trump’s partner in the deal is Digital World Acquisition, which is a “special purpose acquisition company,” or SPAC.

“These so-called blank-check companies are an increasingly popular type of investment vehicle that sells shares to the public with the intention of using the proceeds to buy private businesses,” the Times reports. “At the time that investors bought shares in Digital World, it had not disclosed what, if any, companies it planned to acquire. On its website, Digital World said that its goal was “to focus on combining with a leading tech company.” At least one of the investors, Saba Capital Management, did not know at the time of the initial public offering that Digital World would be doing a transaction with Mr. Trump, according to a person familiar with the matter.”

‘Not Competent’: Legal Experts Pan Trump’s Lawyers and ‘LOLsuit’ Against Twitter and Facebook as ‘Going Nowhere’



Donald Trump, the former president, on Wednesday announced what he described as a class action lawsuit against “Big Tech,” specifically Facebook, Twitter, and Google, and their CEOs as well. Trump for about 50 minutes ranted and railed about having been banned from the social media platforms, along with numerous other grievances.

Trump, his team, and the group supporting him, America First Policy Institute, are essentially claiming Trump’s First Amendment rights were violated when he was banned from the two social media platforms, and because they have protection under federal law known as Section 230, they are an arm of the government, which experts say is false.

Legal experts are responding negatively to both the lawsuit itself and the attorneys who filed it.

Sam Brunson, Georgia Reithal Professor of Law, Loyola University Chicago, mocks their AOL email addresses and calls them “not competent.”

He also calls the lawsuit a “LOLsuit.”

Commercial, trademark, copyright, patent and trade secret litigation attorney Akiva Cohen calls the attorneys a “clown show.”

And also mocks them for having AOL email addresses, among other things.

RNC Reinforces Ties to Trump by Moving Major Donor Dinner to Mar-a-Lago



The Republican Party has had multiple chances to distance itself from former President Donald Trump, including most recently when he sent the RNC a cease and desist letter warning them to not use his name or image for fundraising. But as usual the RNC just reinforced its ties to Trump, moving a major donor dinner to Mar-a-Lago.

“The weekend retreat in early April for the party’s most influential donors will be at a luxury hotel in Palm Beach, as in past years,” The Washington Post reports. “But the RNC has decided to move the Saturday evening portion of the schedule to the former president’s private club to accommodate Trump and guests who would like to visit the site.”

The move will line Trump’s pockets with cash and give him another opportunity to bask in the spotlight of the donors’ adulation.

At least 350 are expected to attend the Mar-a-Lago event.
