Jon Stewart Skewers Ann Coulter Over Her "Our Blacks" Comments

Ann Coulter got her just rewards from Jon Stewart last night for her hideous "our blacks" comments. Check out the snide references during the roundtable segment, too! While he was at it, Stewart also gave Trump a well-deserved comedic trouncing. Very enjoyable - and at Trump's and Coulter's expense!

Van Susteren And Hume Slam Birther Republicans – Promoted On Fox News

Immediately following Greta Van Susteren’s interview with Donald Trump last night, she brought on Brit Hume to discuss the varying tax plans of the 2012 Republican presidential candidates. But before she got to that, she and Hume discussed Governor Rick Perry’s recent birther comments. Clearly, she and Hume were repulsed by them. But what neither of them mentioned was that Perry announced he had become skeptical about Obama’s birth certificate after discussing it with Donald Trump, the same Donald Trump whom Van Susteren had allowed to talk up his birther conspiracy theory without much challenge and had then gone on to give him a platform as a credible pundit.

Donald Trump Goes Birther Again – And Fox News Lets Him Skate

In case you missed it, Presidential candidate Rick Perry announced over the weekend that after talking birtherism with Donald Trump, Perry could not give “a definitive answer” as to whether or not the long-form birth certificate President Obama released last spring is real. Tonight, Greta Van Susteren hosted Donald Trump on On The Record and asked him if it’s true he’s not convinced. Trump revived his original claims and then pretended it wasn’t important. Van Susteren made a point of saying she thought the birth certificate real and she said she “thought” Trump had previously acknowledged its validity. However, she never pointed out the mountain of evidence confirming its authenticity and she never asked Trump what happened to that big investigation in Hawaii he was supposedly conducting into the matter – and then stopped mentioning after Obama's release of the birth certificate.

Donald Trump Teases Running For President Again – Then Repeatedly Paints American Blacks As Racists

Donald “I have a great relationship with the blacks” Trump is back on the maybe/maybe not presidential campaign trail. This time, in the middle of boasting to Sean Hannity about how important he is, how wealthy and how successful – and, by implication how generous and public spirited to consider putting all that aside in order to serve his country – Trump probably blew his chances (assuming he ever had any) by telling Hannity that it was racist for 95% of African Americans to vote for Obama. This is the second time this week (and it’s only Tuesday!) this accusation has been leveled on the Hannity show. In neither case did Hannity – who has a far worse record on race – challenge the outlandish accusation. In fact, some people say Hannity egged Trump on.

Fox News Civil War! Dick Morris Blasts “Teases” Chris Christie, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump

Ordinarily, I don’t put much credence in anything Dick Morris has to say but it’s rare for any Fox News pundit to attack another and in this case, Morris went after two of his colleagues, one regular guest and the darling of boss Roger Ailes, all in one shot.
