CNN’s Banfield: Hillary’s Emails ‘Not Even a Scandal,’ That’s ‘The Republicans’ Word For It’

CNN’s “Legal View” host Ashleigh Banfield argued that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails aren’t “even a scandal” and “scandal” is “the Republicans’ word for it” on Friday. After Banfield made a generic reference to “controversies” “in the press,” and that “Republicans are delivering any script that [Sen.] Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may need to go after Clinton.” Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman stated, “any Democrat who resorts to citing Republican talking points is going to hurt themselves amongst the grassroots –.” Banfield then cut in to say, “So, you’re saying you don’t think he’s ever going to touch the email scandal, or — it’s not even a scandal. It’s really a controversy, the scandal’s the Republicans’ word for it, but so far, no one has determined there’s any scandal there.” (h/t The Right Scoop) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

‘Steve Jobs’ Star Seth Rogen Hate-Tweets: ‘F*ck you Ben Carson’

Seth Rogen, star of the new biopic “Steve Jobs,” used his verified Twitter account Friday to attack black Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. “Fuck you Ben Carson,” Rogen tweeted. — — Rogen did not elaborate on where this anger came from. Rogen, however, is a Leftist and the fact that Carson is a free-thinking black man is enraging many on the Left. Black conservatives who talk about self-reliance from the government infuriate the Left. A black man who strays from the Liberal Thought Plantation is an existential threat to the Democratic Party. As we saw more than 20 years ago with Clarence Thomas, these kinds of irrational Hate Campaigns are the default position of the Left and the media when faced with an apostate. Rogen is not alone. The hate campaign has been effectively coordinated through CNN, MSNBC, and GQ Magazine, which just yesterday published the hate-headline, “Fuck Ben Carson.” Carson’s been attacked by the media all week for as heartless and nuts for discussing the use of self-defense in school shootings, stating accurately that tyrannies like Nazi Germany began with disarming the populace, and rejecting the Gun Control Truthers whose ideas even they admit won’t stop a single mass-shooting.

Graham: House Freedom Caucus Will Walk GOP Off a ‘Cliff’

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warned that the conservative House Freedom Caucus actions could have dire implications for the Republican Party. Graham said he thought that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) or Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) would be a good speaker and tied the House GOP’s decision to the 2016 contest. “Here’s the question, what are they going to do different than Boehner? What is the problem with Boehner? And how did they fix it?  At the end of the day the House Freedom Caucus was frustrated but they have charted a very narrow path for the Republican Party that I don’t think will lead us to the promised land, it will walk us off a cliff. The next Speaker, I hope it will be Paul Ryan, can reset the House to get things done for 2015 so that we don’t lose in 2016.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
