NBC Reporter And Republicans Go Toe-To-Toe After They Were Asked For Examples Of Ukrainian Corruption

Published

on

Some Republican members of Congress got into a rather tense exchange of words with an NBC News reporter after she asked them some questions about Ukraine, including one about wanting examples of corruption in the country.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

Reps. Lee Zeldin of New York, Elise Stefanik of New York, and Mike Johnson of Louisiana gaggled with reporters on Tuesday when NBC’s Heidi Przybyla asked for an example of Ukrainian corruption of concern to President Trump that doesn’t relate to him personally.

They tussled with the reporter as she asked them to explain the corruption the president was concerned about besides allegations surrounding the Bidens and the Crowdstrike theory. The president referenced both in his July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which was the catalyst behind his impeachment.

Zeldin started to answer the question but then said, “If I give a good answer, that doesn’t mean that you have to cut me off, OK? I know that if I give a bad answer, you’d probably let me go all day.”

Zeldin was getting ready to answer the question he was asked, but then decided to ask if other reporters had different questions.

Przybyla said, “I know it’s a hard question,” and added that Trump “is not on the record mentioning anything other than Biden and Crowdstrike, and you haven’t mentioned anything else.”

“I’m happy to answer your question, but all I was asking was, because you have a lot of colleagues here,” Zeldin replied. “You guys want the answer, right?”

Other reporters in the group shared their agreement with Przybyla, to which Zeldin responded, “OK, I’m happy to, but just, you have a unique style, OK, and it’s one that might not be as, I mean, you’re not looking around to see if anyone else has any other questions.”

The mainstream media is definitely not in the good graces of the Republican Party and have not been so for a very, very long time. Perhaps what news organizations like NBC and CNN need to do is go back to being objective and providing people with real facts instead of fabricating stories for the sake pushing an agenda and getting ratings.

If they want to win back viewers, they will have to return to a strict standard of journalistic ethics, otherwise, Fox News will continue to dominate.

Save conservative media!

President Trump Criticizes Democrats After What He Called A ‘Crazy, Chaotic’ Debate

Published

on

Tuesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate was an absolute dumpster fire, a complete clown show of totally epic proportions, a fact that even many Democrats and Democratic voters recognize. The whole event might as well have been a political advertisement for President Trump’s reelection campaign because the only winner to come out of the evening was definitely the current commander-in-chief. President Trump weighed in on the whole fiasco, calling the debate “crazy, chaotic,” two descriptors that fit the evening perfectly. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump sounded off on Tuesday’s debate, hosted by CBS News, on Wednesday morning in a pair of tweets upon returning to Washington, D.C., after visiting India. “Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night. Fake News said Biden did well, even though he said half of our population was shot to death. Would be OVER for most,” Trump said. “Mini Mike was weak and unsteady, but helped greatly by his many commercials (which are not supposed to be allowed during a debate).” “Pocahontas was mean, & undisciplined, mostly aiming at Crazy Bernie and Mini Mike. They don’t know how to handle her, but I know she is a ‘chocker,'” Trump added. “Steyer was a disaster who, along with Mini, are setting records in $’s per vote. Just give me an opponent!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1232657640515342336 Tuesday’s debate was the 10th of the 2020 Democratic primary and featured seven candidates: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; former Mayors Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana; former Vice President Joe Biden; and billionaire Tom Steyer. After the debate was over, lots of folks had harsh words for the debate moderators, even more so than the actual candidates, for not keeping control of the situation and allowing it transform…

Schumer Calls Trump Budget Demand To Fight Coronavirus Inadequate, Requests $8.5B

Published

on

Senate Democrats don’t feel that President Trump’s $2.5 billion budget request to help fight against the spread of the coronavirus, instead seeking to pull in $8.5 billion. According to a top aide, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “is preparing a detailed Senate request” to ask Congress for the money. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: “Expect Schumer’s request to be finalized this morning and sent to appropriators,” the aide said. Democrats on Tuesday dismissed the Trump administration’s $2.5 billion emergency funding request as far too low to prepare the nation to combat the virus in an adequate manner, given its spread in several countries. Democrats point out Congress appropriated $7 billion to battle the spread of the H1N1 virus 11 years ago. Congress is preparing to take up the supplemental spending measure soon, but the final number will have to be negotiated between Democrats and Republicans in both chambers. The House, which is currently run by Democrats, hasn’t yet proposed a spending number, but will take up the legislation first as usual. Republicans in the Senate actually agreed with their Democrat counterparts, stating the figure proposed by President Trump might be a bit too low. Regardless of where you stand on spending for this, the bottom line is that the coronavirus is pretty scary stuff and nations around the world need to be taking proper precautions to ensure the spread of this virus is contained until a vaccine and treatment can be created to prevent it from being a worldwide pandemic. The disease’s death toll has risen substantially since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, and if we want to avoid seeing those kind of numbers here on American soil, it’s going to cost a pretty penny to put all the safety measures in place.
