Fox News’ Neil Cavuto Calls Out Donald Trump: Stop Scapegoating. You Are The Problem.

THE HUFFINGTON POST Fox News host Neil Cavuto devoted a segment on his Tuesday show to giving some “common sense” advice to President Donald Trump.

It’s you,” he said. The host continued to call out the president for “scapegoating,” “feeding [his own] beast,” and “acting beastly with [his] own guys.” Cavuto criticized Trump for alienating members of his own party and creating...

WATCH: Seth Meyers: ‘America Is Both Among, And In, Deep S**t’

THE HUFFINGTON POST “Late Night” host Seth Meyers could not get enough of the recent Washington Post report that said White House press secretary Sean Spicer hid behind bushes to avoid talking to the press the night FBI Director James Comey was fired.  After news broke Tuesday that President Donald Trump had fired Comey, the Post reported that Spicer huddled with staff “in” the bushes. The paper later “corrected” its report to indicate that Spicer was hiding “among” the bushes, presumably after someone in the White House complained about the way the article first characterized the press secretary’s position. “When the White House is...

Sean Spicer Responds To Jimmy Kimmel’s Emotional Plea With Lame GOP Talking Points

THE HUFFINGTON POST White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reacted Wednesday to Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night monologue, saying babies in need of care is why the president is “fighting so hard” to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The only problem is that the revised American Health Care Act that Republicans are rushing to vote on still has fundamental problems, and just this week Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.) unveiled an amendment to the bill that would gut the Affordable Care Act’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions. “We’ve got a health care system that’s not doing what it’s supposed to,” Spicer said...
