Howard Kurtz Takes Issue With USA Today Article

“No matter who had been president last year, the death toll from COVID-19 would have been high. You can argue whether it’ll be higher or lower and that sort of thing,” said Kurtz.

Fox News commentator Howard Kurtz ripped an opinion piece in the USA Today that called for coronavirus victims to be buried at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Kurtz said the piece is an insult to families who have lost loved ones.

“No matter who had been president last year, the death toll from COVID-19 would have been high. You can argue whether it’ll be higher or lower and that sort of thing,” said Kurtz. “This piece is offensive on about 12 different levels.”

The author of the piece, Jason Sattler, has made it his business to write anti-Trump pieces for the last several months. Sattler resides in Michigan and sits on the USA Today’s Board of Contributors.

“I mean, this piece is offensive on about 12 different levels, for Jason Sattler to argue that we should go bury all the victims of COVID-19 at Mar-A-Lago,” the Fox News media analyst told “America’s Newsroom.”

As of Wednesday morning, the novel coronavirus has infected more than 112,184,238 people across 192 countries and territories, resulting in at least 2,487,155 deaths. In the U.S., all 50 states plus the District of Columbia have reported confirmed cases of COVID-19, tallying more than 28,261,619 illnesses and at least 502,681 deaths.

Dan Abrams: Someone in Donald Trump’s Inner Circle Could See Charges

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

The hearings into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol remain ongoing, and following the raid on former Trump Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark this week, anchor Dan Abrams has a bold belief. 

Abrams, the founder of Mediaite and anchor on NewsNation, considers that for the first time, someone from former President Donald Trump’s inner circle could see criminal charges.

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

“It’s generally seemed to me that the criminal inquiry into Trump and his inner circle in connection with Jan. 6 wasn’t going anywhere. I’m talking about what I actually think is happening, that’s all.”

Abrams stated the latest hearing and the Wednesday raid on Clark are what altered his view on whether anyone could end up seeing charges.

“What we learned today changed my analysis. That’s because federal investigators just raided the home of former trump department of justice lawyer Jeffrey Clark,” Abrams added. 

“He was the guy heading the justice department’s environmental division who Donald Trump tried to put in as acting attorney general could see was apparently the only one within the DOJ willing to support the effort to overturn the 2020 election.”

Finally, Abrams conveyed that the raid’s timing before the hearing could examine Clark’s role could lead to something significant when facing jail time.  

“To get authorization to raid his home now, the day before the Jan. 6 committee held a hearing examining Jeffrey Clark’s role in trying to overturn the election, suggest to me that they believe they suddenly could have something big,” Abrams concluded.

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
