Afternoon Mirror: Jedediah Bila Blasts Fox News
Quote of the Day:
“Again POTUS complained about ill fitting gloves while handing out food to hurricane victims. Per Pool: ‘They’re too small.'”
— Pat Ward, Fox News Sunday.
Spotted: Frank Luntz in Denver Airport
Sorry, readers, no pictures because my paparazzi-in-training spy wasn’t fast enough. He did get a good look at Luntz’s shoes, which he swears were not his signature large sneakers. They were more normal, less obnoxious than usual. “I got no pic. But he was talking on the phone and wearing an orange shirt.” Was he alone? “Alone. I missed the sneakers. Looked like he had some luggage and was probably heading out rather than arriving.” A few minutes later: “He just passed again. He’s wearing an orange polo type shirt. With khaki pants. Just looked like normal tennis shoes. Not the weird ones.” He always wears the weird ones, I told my spy. “I think he wears them when he wants to be noticed. Or when his brand is on display.”
A dose of wisdom: “BREAKING: The world’s problems will not be solved by arguing with strangers on Twitter. We’ll update you when we have more on this story.” — Channel 4, UK broadcaster.
ABC’s The View Co-host Goes OFF On Fox News
On Thursday’s show, the ladies were gushing about Hillary Clinton decision to stay with Bill and Hillary’s explanation in her new book What Happened on why she stayed with him.
Hillary appeared on The View Wednesday.
When it was co-host Jedediah Bila‘s turn to talk, she went off on Fox News and defended her right to have opinions about other people’s marriages or relationship.
“Just to let Fox News know…they wrote this article about me, they spelled my name incorrectly, by the way, I only worked there for years, thanks guys. You can comment on somebody”s marriage if you’re asked about it, and that doesn’t mean that that is going to be the reason you vote for them or you don’t. But if I’m asked about Melania Trump’s relationship with Donald and I’m observing, I can say look, it looks a little weird to me, it looks like a strange dynamic. I’ve comment on Michelle Obama and her husband. I’ve commented on Bill and Hillary. …That’s called having an opinion about something. That doesn’t mean it’s why I’m going to vote for someone.”
The Fox News story has since corrected the spelling of Bila’s name.
Here’s the graph that got J-Bilo so riled:
“In March the co-hosts discussed a video of Melania at the inauguration in which she stopped smiling as her husband was no longer facing her. Jedediah Bila noted “there’s something weird” about the Trumps’ relationship and compared them to a couple she knows that got divorced.”

But Laura Ingraham appears to be…
