Newt Gingrich is a glutton for punishment, no? Because even though the Trump campaign cast him out after he offered some gentle criticism in regards to the super racist things he says about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, he is still going on the TV talking about how wonderful he is!

Yesterday, Fox and Friends interviewed both Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani on what they thought of Donald Trump's speech about Orlando -- and surprise! They thought it was great! Two thumbs up! They laughed, they cried, it became a part of them. Though Rudy Giuliani, for his part, would not necessarily require that the president resign for failing to say "Radical Islamic Terrorism." Although he did tell the Fox and Friends gang that he "respects [Trump] for saying it."

Giuliani then went on some diatribe about how Trump will totally take down ISIS just like he took down LA COSA NOSTRA in the 1980s, and then launched into a truly weird criticism of Bill de Blasio taking police officers out of mosques.

Via Politico:

"There is no minister, there is no rabbi in this city nor are there some imams that object to having police officers in their congregation. In fact, they want them there," Giuliani said. "They want them to learn the message. It's enlightening for them."

"So you've got -- if you've got nothing going on there but a beautiful religious service, why in His name would you not want to have police officers there?" he asked.

Yeah! Who doesn't want their church service to be a police state? So pleasant! And certainly, if anyone were going to plan a terrorist attack, they would do it in the middle of a religious service, in front of some cops! It's not like they'd wait and do it someplace else entirely! Quite frankly, as horrified as I am by, say, the Army of God and other Christian Terrorist organizations that bomb abortion clinics and threaten workers, I am not stupid enough to think that they would plan these acts during regular church services open to anyone.

Gingrich, for his part, had another cool idea for the new American surveillance state! Bringing back the House Un-American Activities Committee!

"We originally created the House Un-American Activities Committee to go after Nazis," Gingrich said. "We passed several laws in 1938 and 1939 to go after Nazis and we made it illegal to help the Nazis. We're going to presently have to go take the similar steps here."

Ah yes, the House Un-American Activities Committee! That sure isn't a black mark on America's soul or anything! That went really well! No one is embarrassed by that! Remember what a good time it was when all those people were banned from working in Hollywood because some people thought they might be COMMIES? That, friends, was when we first learned the true character of one Ronald Reagan, who gleefully "named names" during the investigation.

It's not like we still expect teenagers to read The Crucible in order to better understand what a terrible idea that whole thing was, or anything. Certainly, this is a thing we should bring back. And while we're at it, let's check into some of Nixon's programs for investigating the American Left, shall we? Maybe he had some good ideas! And Joseph McCarthy, he sure was a great American person. What would he do in this situation?

BRB, gonna go look for some conservatives complaining about how "political correctness" is turning our country into a George Orwell novel and Obama is gonna put us all in FEMA camps.

Fox News has been LI'L BIT CONFUSED about how to cover Donald Trump's treason meeting with Vladimir Putin. There was a lot of tut-tutting from Fox's daytime journalists (the "real" ones) on Monday, but then it was Double Dipshit Time on Monday night as Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity took over the commentary. Carlson found the real election hackers (brown Mexican people who either move to America and become legal citizens who vote or brown Mexican people who are just born here, as if THAT is allowed!) and declared that Russian meddling is like number 115 on the list of things that threaten America. (The other 114 are the blacks and the Mexicans and the gypsies, because Tucker Carlson is a white supremacist.) Meanwhile, Hannity hosted Donald Trump for some kind of mutual lick-off session where Trump said that Putin had informed him that there was NO COLLUSION. It's good to have a KGB handler who remembers stuff like that!

But even then, there was a hopeful moment! Fox News's Chris Wallace committed an actual act of journalism Monday night when he interviewed Vladimir Putin, going so far as to stick Robert Mueller's indictments in the Russian leader's stupid fucking face and dare him to read them. He even asked Putin why he constantly murders people with poison. GO GET HIM, CHRIS WALLACE!

Usually the next morning's "Fox & Friends" is like Carlson and Hannity's afterbirth, but Tuesday morning was a little bit different! For some reason, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade and Abby Huntsman were not 100% pleased with Dear Leader's behavior in Helsinki! So they put on their Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski masks and did their best impression of a more dumber version of "Morning Joe," and oh my god it was SO WEIRD. Like, they would be outraged for a second, but then they would immediately compliment him and reassure him that he is a Very Good Boy who won that presidential election fair and square.

In what seems like a perfectly logical move where corporations are people, MGM International Resorts is suing all the victims of the Las Vegas massacre in federal court. But don't worry -- at least the company isn't seeking damages from them for its own corporate pain and suffering! Instead, the lawsuit is a maneuver to head off liability claims related to the mass shooting last October 1, as is only right and just. All they want is what's coming to them, like immunity from damages and some ill will from consumers, which will no doubt blow over eventually.
