Fox News Host Steve Hilton Urges Trump To Dump \'Toxic Chump\' Rudy Giuliani  

Fox News host Steve Hilton, frequently cited by President Donald Trump on Twitter, says it's time to ditch Rudy Giuliani over his business dealings in Ukraine.

"It turns out that the former mayor's own personal business interests are wrapped up in all this," Hilton said on Sunday night. "To put it simply, he's been trying to enrich himself on the back of his relationship with President Trump."

Giuliani has been on the front lines of Trump's attempts to pressure Ukraine into getting dirt on his political rivals, something he claimed was done at the request of the State Department.

At the same time, Giuliani was pursuing contracts for his consulting business with Ukrainian officials, The New York Times and The Washington Post reported last week.

He said the contracts were never finalized and he "got paid ZERO."

Those proposed contracts also named Joseph diGenova and Victoria Toensing, a husband-and-wife pair of attorneys who have also been linked to Trump and have appeared on TV in defense of the president.

"I'm just fed up with the lot of them," Hilton said, calling them "hangers-on" and "grifters."

"It's time to dump these toxic chumps," he declared on his show, "The Next Revolution."

Hilton has been one of many vocal pro-Trump voices on Fox News. Trump has thanked Hilton for praising him, called him "a real pro," and has appeared on his show.

Giuliani's time as Trump's attorney has been most notable for his wild media appearances in which he seems to blurt out information, such as the time he revealed Trump reimbursed attorney Michael Cohen for paying off porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump had previously claimed he had no knowledge of the payments.

The Associated Press reported in October that some of Trump's aides have been pushing the president behind the scenes to ditch Giuliani.

Trump has stood by Giuliani, calling him "honorable."

However, Giuliani has said more than once that he has "insurance" if Trump ever decides to dump him.

Last month, he claimed the "insurance" comments were "sarcasm."

As if it were a political rally, the well-heeled crowd offered cheers and jeers as the president delivered broadsides against his political foes.

This political campaign was likely the last for Joe Arpaio, the former six-term sheriff of metro Phoenix known for leading immigration crackdowns and building a political career around the harsh treatment of jail inmates. Arpaio got edged out Friday in the Republican primary for Maricopa County sheriff by his former second-in-command, Jerry Sheridan, in a race that was lower profile and more modestly funded for Arpaio than the blowout campaigns of his heyday. While he still faced criticism over his 2017 criminal conviction - which President Donald Trump pardoned - many didn't know he was running until they saw his name on the ballot.

Vote-by-mail worries: A 'leaky pipeline' in many states

Brace yourself for what's expected to be the first U.S. presidential election conducted mostly by mail. States have made the option widely available -- only 10 now require voters to provide an excuse beyond fear of COVID-19 when requesting a ballot by mail -- and some three in four Americans are expected to embrace the option for the Nov. 3 presidential election, up from one in four in the 2018 contest. It doesn't help that President Donald Trump has waged a vigorous offensive against the idea via a barrage of baseless tweets alleging the imminence of massive voting fraud. Turmoil in the U.S. Postal Service has only heightened concerns surrounding the ability of the nation's myriad...

CNN's Poppy Harlow Confronts Larry Kudlow With All the Times He's Been Wrong About the Coronavirus

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow doesn't have the best track record when it comes to predictions. And CNN anchor Poppy Harlow was more than ready with the receipts when he came on her show to talk about the coronavirus fallout Friday morning. Harlow began her interview by asking Kudlow if he and President Donald Trump are "worried" about the slowdown in the recovery. "I don't know that there's a slowdown. These job numbers will go up and down," Kudlow replied. When Harlow noted that only 1.8 million jobs were added in July compared to 4.8 million in June, he said, "That is true, and it's going to be uneven as it always is." Kudlow continued to push the administration's argument...
