After Al Franken Resigns, Calls for President to Step Down Flood Twitter: ‘Trump Must Go!’

After Al Franken Resigns, Calls for President to Step Down Flood Twitter: ‘Trump Must Go!’
Twitter was divided on Thursday as people voiced their approval — or disappointment — over Sen. Al Franken’s resignation amid multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.

Much like Franken himself did in his emotional Senate-floor speech, many tweeters pointed out the irony that the Minnesota Democrat was forced to resign over his alleged actions while other politicians who have been accused of sexual misconduct — including President Donald Trump and embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore — have not faced consequences. (Trump and Moore have denied the allegations against them.)

Actress Ellen Barkin showed support for Franken while decrying Democrats for their part in his resignation,

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich Defend Al Franken From Democratic ‘Lynch Mob’

  • The Wrap
Fox News host Laura Ingraham came out in defense of Senator Al Franken (D – Minnesota), who is facing calls from many of his Democratic colleagues in the Senate to resign after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. “The Ingraham Angle” host and guest Newt Gingrich both agreed that the crusade against Franken was part of a larger plan by Democrats to set the stage to push out Roy Moore if he is victorious in next week’s election in Alabama for the seat once held by Jeff Sessions — and perhaps even to impeach President Trump. “Be wary of the lynch mob.

Newt Gingrich Accuses Robert Mueller of ‘Grotesque Abuse' of Power -- for Waking Up Paul Manafort in His Pajamas

President Donald Trump has sought to distance himself from former campaign chairman Paul Manafort after he was indicted Monday on money laundering, tax and foreign lobbying charges — including one count of “conspiracy against the United States.” But Newt Gingrich was quick to defend Manafort from what the Republican former house speaker called special counsel Robert Mueller’s “most grotesque abuse” of power.

During an appearance Monday on Fox News’ The Sean Hannity Show, Gingrich criticized Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, specifically the early-morning timing of investigators’ raid on Manafort’s home over the summer.

Megyn Kelly ditched politics for morning television. Did she make a mistake?

She spent more than a decade honing her prosecutorial voice at Fox News. Now her apolitical morning show, Megyn Kelly Today, is struggling to stick

One year ago, Megyn Kelly was on top of the world. Her nightly Fox News program The Kelly File had briefly unseated The O’Reilly Factor at the top of the ratings. The host had begun – despite a 12-year tenure at the network of Roger Ailes – to ingratiate herself with conservatives and liberals alike. She even seemed, for a moment, impervious to the fickle nature of newscasting: the critics who excoriated her history of racially insensitive remarks would just as easily anoint her a feminist firebrand for her takedowns of Newt Gingrich and Anthony Weiner. With a forthcoming memoir and contract negotiations looming, she was in pole position. But Kelly was, to hear her tell it, unhappy; being an enemy of Donald Trump’s can have that effect.

Newt Gingrich Typo-Ridden Tweet Garners Laughs Online: ‘Are You Ok, Fella?’
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took to Twitter to praise Donald Trump’s joint press conference with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and it’s getting attention online for its many typos. Gingrich misspelled five of the first seven words of his tweet; the words he correctly spelled are “was” and “in.” It seems he was trying to say “President Trump was remarkably strong in his joint press event with Sen. McConnell. His grasp of the issues is very deep and growing.” It turned out like this, however: Also Read: Trump Wants 2020 Rematch With Hillary Clinton: 'I Hope So' Gingrich later deleted.

Fox News Alum Carl Cameron to Head TV for Londonderry Tales

Veteran Fox News correspondent Carl Cameron has made a big career shift. He’s joined the Atlanta-based production and finance firm Londonderry Tales to head its television production arm.

Cameron retired from Fox News earlier this month after more than 20 years with the all-news cabler. He was most recently chief political correspondent.

Londonderry founder Patrick Millsaps said Cameron’s background of covering every presidential campaign and White House since 1996 made him well-suited for the job of developing compelling stories for TV. Millsaps formerly worked as chief of staff for Newt Gingrich during his 2012 presidential bid. He launched a talent management firm in 2014 and expanded into film and TV production last year with the Londonderry banner. Former Walden Media executive Chip Flaherty joined Londonderry in July as head of its film arm.

“I am thrilled to have TV veteran Carl Cameron join the Londonderry team,” said Millsaps. “Carl and I met when I was running my first and

The Federalist Published Op-Ed Supporting Scaramucci’s Hire a Few Hours Before He Got Fired

  • The Wrap
The sudden departure of Anthony Scaramucci from the White House staff threw America for a loop — perhaps no one more so than conservative commentary site The Federalist, which just published an opinion piece by senior contributor David Marcus titled, “Why Anthony Scaramucci Is The Man Trump And America Need.” The post went up roughly six hours before the White House communications director was fired after holding the position for only ten days, following Sean Spicer’s exit. In the article, Marcus argued that Scaramucci’s hire was a crushing blow against establishment Republicans, like Newt Gingrich and recently-ousted Wh Chief of Staff.
