Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto on Wednesday confronted one of the network’s most loyal Trump defenders, dismantling Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett’s latest pro-Trump book that asserts the president is the victim of an ongoing “witch hunt” by the so-called Deep State and Democrats.As Jarrett promoted his new book on Cavuto’s show, the pro-Trump pundit immediately remarked that his host’s copy of the book was marked with a “lot of yellow Post-It notes.” Cavuto, meanwhile, went on to note that Jarrett focuses much of his book’s attention on blaming the media for the purported witch hunt against Trump, which Jarrett claims the Ukraine scandal is part of. After the Fox analyst claimed the media was “lazy,” suffer from a “liberal bias,” and “shoot from the hip,” Cavuto wondered aloud if Jarrett could say anything negative about the president’s behavior and tendency to lie and misspeak.“But do you say that the president does not sometimes confuse people?” Cavuto asked. “He says something and then says something else?”Jarrett tried to deflect, complaining about reporters accepting “intelligence leaks,” prompting Cavuto to press again.“I get that, and you well-researched that and documented with great detail, and it is impressive,” the Fox anchor noted. “But do you fault the president for anything?”Pausing for a moment, Jarrett responded that the one thing he can fault Trump for was hiring Jeff Sessions as his attorney general, something he added Trump himself has said he was wrong to do.Cavuto, who is one of the rare Trump-skeptic voices on Fox, further confronted his colleague on Trump’s lies and flip-flops on payments he made to women he had alleged affairs with, causing Jarrett to shrug that off. The host then moved on to Trump attempting to get a foreign leader to dig up dirt on a political opponent.“With the Ukraine situation, when you look at that-now you are the lawyer, I don’t know what is considered a high crime or misdemeanor, might not fit the case here-is it proper for a sitting president of the United States to talk to a foreign leader about involving himself in a campaign?” Cavuto asked.The pro-Trump Fox personality, however, took the opportunity to make an argument he’s made in the past-that it would actually be a crime if the president did not ask Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family. (There is no evidence Biden or his son did anything illegal or wrong in Ukraine.)After a bit more back and forth, Cavuto eventually tried to get Jarrett to admit at least one thing: Doesn’t it “look bad” that Trump pressed Ukraine to investigate Biden?“It looks bad to Democrats,” Jarrett said. “It does not look bad to me.”This gentle but telling confrontation comes on the heels of a network civil war between the Fox news division and opinion hosts and commentators, which recently spilled out on air. Earlier this month, amid these clashes, longtime anchor Shepard Smith announced he was departing Fox News after 23 years.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Sen. Bernie Sanders said in Tuesday’s Democratic debate that the three wealthiest Americans have more money than the bottom half of all Americans - an assertion he’s made before, including at the Democratic debate in June. Sanders is referring to billionaires Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and Warren Buffett. And according to the fact-checking news organization Politifact, Sanders is right that they’re richer than half of all Americans.In 2018, Forbes said that Bezos and his family are worth $160 billion, Gates is worth $97 billion, and Buffett is worth $88 billion. That comes to a total of $345 billion dollars.The Guardian reported that Bezos’ ex, MacKenzie Bezos, will receive $36 billion in their divorce. That would drop his worth to a paltry $124 billion, and the total worth of Bezos, Gates and Buffett to $309 billion.Also Read: Bernie Sanders Released From Hospital After Heart AttackBut that still makes their combined wealth significantly higher than the roughly $250 billion in combined wealth for the bottom half of Americans, according to a study by the Institute for Policy Studies. The institute is a progressive think tank.Politifact has rated Sanders’ statement as true.As the Institute reported, “almost one in five American households now resides in our Underwater Nation. These households often have no savings at all or owe more than they own.”Sanders brought up the statistic in response to a question from CNN’s Erin Burnett, who asked if he wants to tax billionaires out of existence. Sanders said he does indeed want significantly higher taxes on the wealthiest people in America.“When you have a half-million Americans sleeping out on the street, 87 million people uninsured or underinsured, when you have hundreds of thousands of kids who cannot afford to go to college, and millions struggling with the oppressive burden of student debt… and you have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” Sanders said. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she agreed, and accused fellow Democrats on the debate stage of wanting to protect billionaires. Sen. Amy Klobuchar fired back that “not even the billionaire” onstage wanted to protect billionaires, referring to Tom Steyer.Lawrence Yee contributed to this story.Read original story Bernie Sanders Says 3 People Are Wealthier Than Half of All Americans.
