Turley says Ron Klain's vaccine retweet is legal issue for Biden: 'Breathtakingly daft'

FOX News

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves threatens legal action on'The Ingraham Angle' Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley called White House chief of staff Ron Klain's recent retweet appearing to praise the Biden administration for executing the "ultimate work-around" for President Biden's recent vaccine mandate "breathtakingly daft." "The retweet was breathtakingly daft on the eve of litigation over the order. It is reminiscent of President Biden admitting that his own White House counsel and their preferred legal experts all said that the eviction moratorium extension was likely unconstitutional," Turley told Fox News on Friday. "Courts will now be asked to ignore the admission and uphold a self-admitted evasion of constitutional limits," Turley added. The "problem is that the thing being'worked around' is the Constitution."

"We've already moved people who were working on the Biden campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there, and I expect you'll see the president-elect travel down there before Election Day." Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock performed well enough to earn runoff elections and are facing Republican Sens.Kelly Loeffler and David Perdu respectively. Warnock won more of the vote than Loeffler – 32.9% to 25.9% - in a crowded field.

FOX News

Former White House press secretaries Ari Fleischer and Kayleigh McEnany react on'Hannity.' President Biden's chief of staff is being lambasted for a tweet appearing to celebrate French President Emmanuel Macron's reelection as proof his own boss can get reelected amid sagging poll numbers, Kayleigh McEnany said Monday on "Hannity." McEnany, co-host of "Outnumbered" and a former White House press secretary for Donald Trump, said Ronald Klain's questionable tweet is proof Biden is surrounded by yes-men. Klain, the chief of staff to both Biden and former Vice President Albert Gore, characterized Macron's double-digit victory over right-wing candidate Marine Le Pen as an "interesting observation" in light of the U.S. leader's own woeful numbers. "That Chief of Staff tweet: He's severely delusional," McEnany said on "Hannity."


Liberal columnist claims Biden gets worse press coverage than Trump, media needs to do 'soul-searching'

FOX News

In media news today, a women's group says'good riddance' to Chris Cuomo after CNN firing, Brooke Baldwin calls on the liberal network to replace Cuomo with a woman, and an MSNBC anchor appears to downplay Bob Dole's accomplishments because of his support for Trump. Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank doubled down Monday on his recent op-ed that claimed "sentiment analysis" data proved the media is tougher on President Biden than they were on former President Trump. Milbank's piece, titled, "The media treats Biden as badly as - or worse than - Trump. Here's proof," cited research from Forge.ai, a data analytics unit of the information company FiscalNote. The study used algorithms focused on adjectives and their placement in articles - more than 200,000 of them - to rate the coverage Biden received in the first 11 months of 2021 and the coverage Trump got in the first 11 months of 2020.
