Newsmax Host Has On-Air Meltdown When Army Vet Criticizes Trump: ‘Cut Him Off Now!’

Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield grew enraged and had an on-air meltdown during an interview with an Army veteran, eventually cutting the interview short because the vet dared to criticize failed, one-term former President Donald Trump.

According to Jason Campbell of Media Matters, Army veteran Joe Saboe told Stinchfield that “multiple” presidents had made mistakes in Afghanistan, which led the host to counter:

“I can tell you this didn’t happen under President Trump. And I know there’s a lot of people on the left that want to try to blame President Trump. He wanted out of Afghanistan real bad. He was real frustrated not being able to get out. But he didn’t pull out because he knew this would happen.”

In an attempt to set Stinchfield straight on the facts, Saboe told him:

“With due respect, veterans — I’m being one, right — our friends are over there. We followed this closely for multiple administrations and we know the Trump administration’s efforts here fairly weak, that they were trying to limit the number of people that would get out so there was coordination problems for a long time.”

The way the host responded, you’d have thought Saboe had just set an effigy of the ex-president alight and burned a flag to boot:

“Cut him off! Cut him off now! Cut him off now! You’re not going to blame this on President Trump on my show! That’s not happening!”

Still enraged, Stinchfield continued:

“God bless you for being a veteran. God bless you for trying to get Americans out. But don’t come on this program and take the talking points of the left and blame President Trump! That’s not helping anybody! The Biden administration screwed this up from the very start! You know it! I know it! The country knows it!

“I’m mad about that, man. I really am.”

Yeah, Grant, your hypocritical fascist outrage is very impressive. But Trump’s fingerprints are all over the U.S. policy in Afghanistan, and it was Trump’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who met with the Taliban in Doha and kissed their asses.

Trump’s foreign policy was a disaster. It could take decades to rebuild the bridges he burned with our allies and distance ourselves from the thugs he so eagerly embraced.

Paranoid Trump Tells Newsmax That The United States Will End In Three Years

With excerpts of the latest book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa making headlines, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump had to find the nearest right-wing media outlet and vent his spleen, suggesting that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley is a “traitor” and predicting that the United States will end in three years time.

Appearing on Sean Spicer’s evening Newsmax show, Trump began by whining that “our country has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody’s ever seen before.”

Actually, our country has never been stronger. The economy is doing great, more Americans are getting vaccinated for COVID, and the United States is once again respected and admired because we have a stable, caring person in the White House.

Trump then made his prediction of what he thinks will happen in the near future:

“And you go to these elections coming up in ’22 and ’24 — we’re not going to have a country left. The election was rigged and we’re not going to have a country left in three years, I’ll tell you that.”

The election was not rigged, and there isn’t a shred of evidence to suggest otherwise. Trump is just upset he lost by a huge margin and is now facing indictment and imprisonment on any number of crimes.

And then there was the matter of Gen. Milley, who, according to Woodward and Costa, assured his Chinese counterpart the U.S. would not launch a surprise strike on China during Trump’s final days in office:

“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

According to Trump, if that’s true, it’s “treason.” Coming from an alleged traitor, that’s pretty damn rich.

The failed ex-president then added:

“It’s totally ridiculous. I never thought of it. For him to say that I would even think about attacking China, I think he’s trying to just get out of his incompetent withdrawal out of Afghanistan.”

Why is Trump so upset? Because he knows every word of the new book is true and it shows what a sick, twisted, insane little man he is.

Capitol Rioter Calls Newsmax From Lockup To Whine That He Wants To Go Home

Christopher Worrell wants us to feel sorry for him even though he got himself arrested for being one of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on January 6 and now can only think of going home instead of being locked up in pretrial detention.

Worrell is also a member of the Proud Boys, a far-right extremist, neo-fascist gang of thugs that promotes and engages in political violence across the United States.

But according to Worrell, he’s ever so sorry for what he did and thinks the government should give him a break because he’s suffering from a disease and needs urgent medical attention.

During a phone interview with Newmax host Greg Kelly, Worrell whined for nearly ten minutes, telling Kelly:

“The regrets I have is, I mean, nobody I knew, talking to, during or after, had any idea that anything like that was going to occur on that day. None of us had any tendencies or anything other than the preach our First Amendment rights and protest our tyrannical government, it seems like, you know, they’re just worried about their own political agenda.”

Boo freaking hoo! You were in the wrong place at the wrong time, huh, Christopher? Then how do you explain the fact that you’re also charged with using pepper spray on a law enforcement officer? That’s not a protest; it’s assault and battery.

That’s not all Worrell had to say.

Once he had whined and sounded as if he was about to cry as he alleged that he’s not getting adequate medical treatment for his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, he remarked:

“I have another court hearing coming up soon, and we’re hoping the courts are going to see, but, you know, they’re just, they’re mistreating me. They promised me treatment way back in April, and yet here I am, still 166 days later with no treatment, so that’s our plan and our hope that the courts have a little bit of compassion, let me go home to get some medical urgent medical treatment that I need.”

They’re mistreating him? Did he think being in jail would be a pleasant experience? If Chris Worrell was so damn concerned about his health, he should have stayed home on Jan. 6 instead of going to Washington looking for blood and oozing hate from every pore.

Why should we have a shred of sympathy for Worrell or any of the others awaiting their day in court? Are we supposed to buy their bullshit excuses and believe their crocodile tears now that they’re facing a long stint in prison?

There’s an old saying that was popular way back when on a show that ran in the 1970s. The show was called “Baretta” and it featured actor Robert Blake in the lead role. The theme song had this line in it:

“Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.”

That’s my advice for the traitors who stormed the Capitol. You did the crime, and now you have to do the time. End of story.

Newsmax Host Suggests Obama Has Never Worked A Day In His Life And Is Lazy

Today is former President Barack Obama’s 60th birthday, so a very happy birthday, Mr. President, and thank you for all of the many things you did to make this country better during your two terms in office.

Not everyone, however, is happy about the fact that President Obama is turning 60 and holding a birthday party. Some of them are downright angry and even jealous.

A perfect example would be Newsmax host Greg Kelly, who thought he’d suggest that Obama has never had to work hard and is basically just a lazy black guy who managed to get ahead in life due to the color of his skin.

Here’s how Kelly started his rant about the former president:

“Everything is great for him. he’s a billionaire, and it just hit me today. You know, he’s never really had a job. We all know he never broke a sweat as president.”

Of course, what Kelly neglected to add is that Obama was in such excellent physical condition that he didn’t have to break a sweat. Apparently, the folks at Newsmax prefer fat pigs who eat KFC and Big Macs endlessly as head of state, especially since that presents such a stellar image to the rest of the world.

However, Kelly was only getting warmed up with what turned out to be an incredibly racist diatribe. He continued:

“How about in his way UP the ladder, huh? Night school position at Chicago law school. I don’t think he worked too hard there.”

How many classes has Greg Kelly taught at an elite law school? Probably none. And he also neglected to mention that Obama graduated from Harvard Law School and was even editor of Law Review, the highest honor any law student can receive.

Of course, President Obama has also written some best-selling books, but that doesn’t impress Kelly, either:

“How hard do you have to work on those books when you are the subject when you write about yourself?”

Well, at least he didn’t need a ghostwriter like some other presidents we can think of and even name, especially since they only got one term in office and left the country a wreck.

There was also this pathetic attempt at slagging Obama:

“And I know being Mr. Michelle Obama was probably challenging at times, but basically he’s had a very cake life.”

Again, the jealousy. Kelly wishes he could have attracted the attention of a woman as brilliant and classy as Michelle Obama.

Basically, Greg Kelly took an entire segment of his poorly-watched show and let the world know that he cannot stand the fact Barack Obama has accomplished more in his 60 years than 99.9% of conservatives ever will. And he also didn’t file for bankruptcy multiple times or say publicly that he was attracted to his daughter when she was 13.

Happy Birthday, President Obama. And thank you for still driving the right-wingers crazy.

Coronavirus Right Wing Morons WTF?!

Newsmax Host: Vaccines Are ‘Against Nature’– Diseases Are Supposed To ‘Wipe Out’ People

As hospitalizations from COVID-19 in red states continue to skyrocket and the Biden administration urges Americans to get vaccinated as a way to prevent another wave of the deadly disease — this time as a result of the new Delta variant — right-wing media continues its assault on science and rational thought.

For weeks now, Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been questioning the need for COVID vaccines, and now Rob Schmitt of Newmax has decided to join the misinformation brigade by proudly asserting that vaccines go “against nature” because diseases are supposed to “wipe out” a certain number of people.

Monday, Schmitt had this to say on the matter of disease and vaccines, according to Media Matters:

“I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I’m not a pro-vaxxer. I’m somebody that’s looking at this thing and trying to figure it out.”

Admitting that he’s “not a doctor,” Schmitt then added:

“I’ve always thought about vaccines, and I always think about just nature, and the way everything works. And I feel like a vaccination in a weird way is just generally kind of going against nature.”

And then Schmitt took his remarks to the most absurd level imaginable:

“Like, I mean, if there is some disease out there — maybe there’s just an ebb and flow to life where something’s supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes. Vaccines kind of stand in the way of that. Do you follow what I’m saying? Does that make sense to somebody in medicine?”

However, if that was the case, children in this country would be dying by the hundreds of thousands each year from preventable diseases such as smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough. Millions more would be paralyzed or die from polio. Is that what we want to see happen when we have ways of eliminating such childhood scourges?

In the case of coronavirus, misinformation is literally death. And while most of us believe everyone has a First Amendment right to express their opinion on any subject, that doesn’t mean it’s wise for so-called “news” networks to delude their viewers into being so cavalier with their health or the health of their loved ones.

If you can’t shout “fire!” in a crowded theater, then you damn well shouldn’t be minimizing the seriousness of a virus that has already killed over 600,000 Americans. To do so makes you complicit in adding to the death toll. That may not be a crime, but maybe it should be.
