To cleanse the palate, lotta emotions running high today.
I don’t know what this is really about but it’s not about the Cohen hearing. Williams rambles on a bit too long while panelist Morgan Ortagus is waiting to cut in, then he says something about a bunker, and — hoo boy.
This is the closest the Fox News set has come to actual violence since the time Hannity pulled a gun on Juan. How has this guy survived this long?
Two clips here from “The Five” plus one of Cohen’s closing statement today, which contained its own intimation of violence: “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power.” He’s overstating that; it’s not like Trump will deploy the military if he loses. But there’s literally no scenario in which he’ll graciously accept defeat, even if he loses by 10 million votes. Some sort of fraud and chicanery will be alleged to explain it. “That’s what they did to me with the Russia probe,” he’ll say of Democrats’ reaction to his victory over Hillary in 2016. Where things go from there, God only knows. Hopefully they won’t get too hairy.
