Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stated that when China’s ships approach the Bering Strait “our warplanes ought to go out and escort them,” and the US should talk with China “about perhaps asking them to play by the same rules in our marketplace that they force us to play by in their marketplace” on Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co.” Fiorina said that while she wouldn’t cancel the state visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping, she “wouldn’t make it a huge photo op,” but rather a “serious negotiation.” She continued, “now is the time to put pressure on China in all kinds of ways,” and that there is “no question” China is a “rising adversary,” cheated on trade deals, and engaged in cyber espionage and attacks. Fiorina called for air and sea patrols of the South China trade route before stating, “Number two, when their ships

Hewitt on Trump: I Didn’t Ask Gotcha Questions, ‘I Genuinely Hate Them’

Friday on CNN’s “The Lead With Jake Tapper,” conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt denied that he asked Donald Trump “gotcha questions” in their radio interview Thursday. Host Jake Tapper asked, “Mr. Trump told you immediately after you asked him specifically about General Suleimani and Hezbollah and Hamas, that he didn’t think the questions were fair. Why do you think they are fair?” Hewitt said, “Gotcha questions, which I don’t think are fair, are tricks to attempt to embarrass people. I provided the name of General Suleimani, I talked about the other people. I didn’t ask him for names and didn’t ask for groups. I don’t think a gotcha question that doesn’t quiz you is a gotcha question. I think it’s a serious probing question as to do you think the Iran deal will mean for these terrorist groups when Iran gets $150 billion and General Suleimani is such a talented terrorist.

Santorum: Kim Davis Is ‘Heroic’

Republican presidential candidate and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum praised Rowan County, KY clerk Kim Davis (D) for her “heroic” refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses on Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day.” Santorum said, “Well, there’s lots of issues surrounding this. And the first one is, why are we putting someone in jail because they have a religious objection –.” When asked if he thought the fact that the clerk’s office was issuing license for same-sex marriage, Santorum responded, “we have a situation where the United States Supreme Court, in my opinion, acted unconstitutionally. And it’s not just mine, it’s also Justice Roberts’ opinion. He said that the court acted without any constitutional support to do this.” Santorum added, “the obligation of, — I believe of a president, of a Congress when the court acts unconstitutionally, and I believe they have acted unconstitutionally, is to use the power that is inherent

Adam Carolla Responds to Bill Maher: ‘Racist’ to Assume All Whites Are Wealthy

On his podcast earlier this week, Adam Carolla reacted to HBO’s Bill Maher calling GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump and other Republicans racist for wanting to deport illegal immigrants, specifically Mexicans that have crossed the U.S.-Mexican border. Carolla pointed out that liberals or progressives, such as Maher, saying the deportation of all illegal immigrants is not a real problem that exists and deporting them would theoretically cause the price of lettuce to increase tremendously because there would not be anyone in the United States to do the work. “[Liberals] all think white people just head right to Princeton, Harvard and Yale. They don’t live in the real world. All the white dudes I went to school with all got into construction and what we did was day labor work. Thats all we did. Because we’re poor and come from parents that are poor as well.” “This weird thing that we keep selling
