Fox’s Jesse Watters Launches A Sexist Attack On Cassidy Hutchinson And Gets Shredded On Twitter

Fox News host Jesse Watters (who has been called by some “Bill O’Reilly’s former fluffer”) is absolutely apoplectic that former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson dared to repeat something she heard took place on January 6, 2021 when she testified before the House Select Committee on Tuesday.

Specifically, Hutchinson said she had been told that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump grabbed a Secret Service agent and ordered him to drive to the Capitol while also grabbing the steering wheel of the vehicle.

Keep in mind Hutchinson never claimed she had witnessed the altercation. She made it clear it was something that had been told to her by another person.

And now there are reports that the Secret Service and the agent in question are upset with what Hutchinson said and they’re pushing back by floating stories to the media but not bothering to actually sit down before the committee, be sworn to tell the truth, and testify.

That was the jumping off point for Watters, who began his rant with this:

“If you put up this Secret Service agent who says ‘This girl’s lying, I never said that.’ He’s got 20 years in the Secret Service. Guy’s got a ton of integrity. She’s fresh out of college. Who do you believe? He has a ton to lose by lying. She has a lot to gain by lying.”

So there’s no way a member of the Secret Service would ever lie? Not even to protect his career and not be publicly humiliated? Please! That’s just plain stupid on its face.

But Watters was far from done, adding:

“Look at her. She’s the new ‘it’ girl. She’s gonna get a job offer at CNN, she’s gonna be a contributor, she’ll probably get a book deal. And she’ll waltz around at every party in Washington. Never have to pay for another drink.”

Does it get more misogynistic than that? New “it girl”? Be sure and note the line about never having to pay for another drink, too. As if that’s why Ms. Hutchinson agreed to testify: Just so she could get free drinks.

Twitter ripped Watters to shreds for his disgusting remarks:

Marjorie Taylor Greene Tweets Out A Disgusting Threat At Cassidy Hutchinson

Near then end of today’s January 6 House Select Committee hearing, we learned that there have been efforts to exert influence on witnesses who appear before the panel.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who serves as vice chair of the committee, announced:

“The easy course is to hide from the spotlight and to deny what happened. We have evidence of one particular practice that raises significant concern.

“Our committee commonly asks witnesses connected to Mr. Trump’s administration or campaign whether they’ve been contacted by any of their former colleagues or anyone else who attempted to influence or impact their testimony.”

Cheney then read one example of a communique that had been sent to a witness:

“What they said to me is, as long as I continue to be a team player, they know I’m on the right team … I’m protecting who I need to protect, you know, I’ll continue to stay in good graces in Trump World. And they have reminded me a couple of times that Trump does read transcripts and just to keep that in mind as I proceeded through my depositions and interviews with the committee.” 

In another example, someone called a witness and said an unnamed person “wants me to let you know that they are thinking about you. He knows you’re loyal, and you’re going to do the right thing when you go in for your deposition.”

Clearly, what Cheney was hinting at was witness tampering, which is a very serious federal crime.

And now we have another example of potential witness tampering, this time aimed directly at today’s star witness, former Trump administration official Cassidy Hutchinson.

The threat aimed at Hutchinson comes from none other than Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who sent this tweet:

“Cassidy Hutchinson lied and the@January6thCmte held a special hearing today to broadcast her lies. In ‘23, every single one of them need to be held accountable for what they are putting Pres Trump, his admin, & Republicans through on the people’s dime.

“Enough of this.”

Be sure and note the reference Greene made to a tweet from right-wing lugnut Jack Posobiec, which suggests that Trump couldn’t have possibly reached into the front seat of the limo the way Hutchinson alleged.

However, neither Posobiec or Greene paying very close attention, as another person reminded them regarding the limo:

Let’s not forget just how rich it is that Greene is accusing someone of lying, something both she and Donald Trump do more often then they exhale.

And then there’s the matter of Greene requesting a pardon from Trump as he was preparing to leave office. Who needs a pardon? A guilty person, and thanks to Cassidy Hutchinson we know that Greene and others Republicans in Congress were begging to be pardoned.

But the threat from Greene to Hutchinson and others can clearly be seen as witness tampering, and she damn sure won’t be getting any pardons before 2025 at the soonest if she’s charged and convicted.

So thanks, Margie. You just provided all the evidence needed to nail your trifling ass to the wall and send you off to prison.

Gaetz And Greene Send Out Frantic Tweets After Jan. 6 Committee Proves They Wanted Pardons

Shortly after the January 6 House Select Committee presented testimony that six House Republicans asked failed former president Donald Trump for pardons in the final days of the Trump administration, two of the six named — Reps. Matt Gaetz (FL) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA) — took to Twitter and began making posts that only succeeded in proving just how terrified they are of what the future holds for them.

What might that future entail? According to Norm Eisen, who served as co-counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during Trump’s first impeachment trial, Gaetz and Greene are facing 15 years in jail and disqualification from ever holding public office:

Such cold hard facts clearly triggered Gaetz and Greene.

That led to plenty of pushback on social media. Take a look:

Video Of Marjorie Greene Walking Through Tunnels Beneath The Capitol Leaves Twitter Chattering

Now that we know several members of Congress were part of the plot to install alternate electors who would cast their ballots for failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump despite the fact that he had lost in a landslide to President Joe Biden, speculation has begun as to who those Republicans might be.

One of them, we learned Tuesday from the January 6 House Select Committee, was Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who tried to avoid answering the question of whether or not he’d played any role when asked by reporters Wednesday morning:

And now a video posted by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is setting off speculation that she might also be one of the co-conspirators.

We know that Greene gave tours of the Capitol in the days leading up to Jan. 6, and that brings us to the video she posted online:

No words, no captions, just Greene walking around the tunnels under the U.S. Capitol, which are off-limits to the general public. Is she trying to send some sort of message with the video or just trolling us?

The odd video sent off waves of discussion on Twitter.

Naomi Biden Burns Marco Rubio Down For Whining About The Senate Gun Reform Bill

President Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, shut down Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Twitter after he whined that he hadn’t been given enough time to read a Senate bill on gun reform that passed the upper chamber on Tuesday.

According to Newsweek:

In a tweet, the Florida senator complained about the time given to read the gun bill ahead of a vote on whether to begin debate on the bill after it had been finalized and released.

“We are being asked to vote tonight to begin debate on a gun proposal whose legislative text was only made available less than an hour ago,” he tweeted.

That was all it took for Naomi to go off on Rubio and put him in his place for the absurd posting.

“Ok—suspend reality and believe you would actually read a bill. The bill is 80 pages & ~13,000 words. The average 5th grader reads ~180 words per min. This means a 5th grader could read this bill in just over an hour. You had that for this vote & 30 hours until the actual vote.”

Others then joined the debate and shredded Rubio, including Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was shot and killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012.

Maybe if Rubio wasn’t so damn busy trying to decide what Bible verse he’ll tweet out each day in order to give the false impression he’s a Christian, he’d have enough time to read legislation.
