Judge Napolitano Explains to Fox News Host: Covington Kid’s Lawsuit ‘Impossible’ to Prove

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on Wednesday helpfully explained to Fox host Charles Payne that the $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post filed by the family of Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann faces a tough road, adding that it is “impossible” to prove that level of damages claimed.

Noting that President Trump gave his support to Sandmann’s suit, which contends the Post targeted and bullied the MAGA hat-wearing teenager in an effort to embarrass the president, Payne asked Napolitano if Sandmann, 16, has a case.

The judge weighed both sides of the argument, claiming the teen “probably suffered” as a result of “false and erroneous” portrayals of his interactions last month with a Native American activist. On the other side, Napolitano pointed out, the student became a “limited purpose public figure” during the confrontation, adding that Sandmann’s lawyers would need to then prove the Post “published what they knew was false and reckless.”

So, er, where’s our invite?

The venue for Meghan Markle’s baby shower is a $75,000-a-night duplex penthouse suite at New York City’s Mark Hotel, and the tab for the party, which was due to kick off at 1230pm Wednesday afternoon, is being picked up by Serena Williams, according to a report in British society bible Tatler.

Reports that the party happened Tuesday are now very much discredited (send us to the tower), with guests arriving at The Mark today in a swirling (and very photogenic) snowstorm.

Scouted: The Travel-Friendly Wall Charger From Ombia Is The Only One You’ll Want In Your Carry-On

One of the best decisions I ever made was getting a portable wall charger that I kept in my luggage at all times. It meant one less thing to remember to pack (and then remember to unpack once I returned) and it gave me peace of mind that if I somehow left it behind, I would still be able to charge my phone at home post-trip.

If you’re a heavy traveler, getting yourself a travel-only fast-charger is almost a no-brainer. But I would take it one step further and invest in one that can be plugged into any outlet, no matter what country you end up in. The Ombia P5 Wall Charger is the one you’ll want to keep tucked into your carry-on at all times.

With its Qualcomm Quick Charge capabilities, it can charge phones, tablets, gaming consoles, and even laptops with both a USB-A and USB-C port, meaning you can charge two devices at once. But the best part about this plug is that it comes with three different adapters that keep your charger chugging along in the UK, Australia, and across Europe. Just swap one of the travel plugs in and you’re ready to go.

The ‘Burberry Noose’ Is Just The Latest Controversy. Why Can’t Fashion Houses Do Better?

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

For many, the sight of a model wearing a noose at Burberry’s London Fashion Week show was disgusting, tasteless, and distressing. Unfortunately, it was not all that surprising.

Frustratingly, it felt like a fashion controversy du jour, a story that would dominate the day’s headlines until a new offensive look started trending on Twitter.

After all, before the noose it was Katy Perry’s blackface shoes. Before Katy Perry’s blackface shoes it was Gucci’s blackface turtleneck. Before Gucci’s blackface turtleneck it was Prada’s blackface keychain. Before Prada’s blackface keychain it was Dolce & Gabbana’s bizarre, anti-Chinese ad campaign.

Scouted: ThirdLove Adds 24 New Sizes To Five Different Bra Styles

People struggle with bras fitting incorrectly—especially people who have larger cup sizes. It becomes more about utility than style, which seems like a huge oversight by most bra brands. Back in June of last year, direct-to-consumer bra brand ThirdLove added 24 new sizes to their Perfect Coverage Bra. Today, they added the same 24 new sizes to four more of their bra style, bringing a whopping 78 sizes into the fold.

The new sizes will be available in these ThirdLove styles: the Perfect Coverage, Classic T-Shirt, Cotton T-Shirt, Everyday Lace T-Shirt, and the Lace Back T-Shirt. The brand already offers half sizes, which is a unique and considerable upgrade to the quality of life for bra-wearers—and something practically unheard of before their launch. With the addition of these new sizes, band sizes start at 30” and go up to 48”, with cup sizes from AA-I (with half sizes in between).

Plus, unlike a lot of other brands that change the design of bras or charge more money for larger cup sizes, ThirdLove upgrades them with wider straps, a more substantial hook and eye closure and keeps the same price. This small but important detail shows that ThirdLove truly creates each new bra size with every person in mind.

Video: Tucker Carlson’s Unaired Meltdown After Rutger Bregman Calls Out Fox News

Last week, Dutch historian and author Rutger Bregman claimed he was cursed out by Fox News host Tucker Carlson in a segment that would likely never air. On Wednesday afternoon, audio of Carlson’s on-air meltdown finally emerged.

“Why don’t you go fuck yourself,” Carlson can be heard yelling at Bregman as the pre-taped segment went completely off the rails. “You tiny brain… moron.”

Bregman became a viral sensation late last month after going off-script during an appearance at the World Economic Forum at Davos, telling the billionaires in attendance that they should stop avoiding paying taxes.

Scouted: Amazon’s Sale on WiFi Routers Saves You Up to 40% — And That Monthly Charge for Leasing Your Current One

If you’re reading this at home, you very likely have a modem and router spreading your WiFi’s signal throughout your dwelling. Today’s Amazon sale cuts up to 40% off of routers, modems, and similar items to give you better access to your fast Internet signal.

Speaking of that signal, you likely lease your modem, router, or both from your Internet provider, adding approximately $10 a month to your bill

Industry leader NETGEAR’s Nighthawk WiFi router is nearly half off and almost cartoonishly highly-rated with more than 23,000 reviews. At this price, the router pays for itself in about seven months and is designed to cover an entire home in the long run — as well as manage connected devices with capabilities like parental control through a dedicated mobile app. Buy it before that price nearly doubles.

‘We Gotta Stop This’: Pro-Trump One America News Fights ‘Socialist’ College Courses

Because we watch Trumpland TV so you don’t have to, today we learned that the Young America’s Foundation has released its annual “Dirty Dozen” list, featuring the 12 most “appalling” college courses it claims are fostering “intellectual abuse and flat-out indoctrination.”

YAF’s Spencer Brown joined One America News host Liz Wheeler to discuss the “pipeline for indoctrinating the next generation of socialist voters,” but they seem to have struggled to find much of substance to be offended by:

The course that topped YAF’s list is offered at Illinois, and is titled “Gender in Gaming,” a topic that has been discussed so long the idea it ought to be debated is now anodyne.

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain Confronts Tulsi Gabbard for ‘Spouting Propaganda from Syria’

Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was greeted with a “warm aloha” on the The View Wednesday morning. But things didn’t stay sunny for long.

As the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate began to lay out how her time serving in Iraq has influenced her non-interventionist foreign policy position, Meghan McCain was just itching to push back. “Can I interrupt you?” she asked.

After thanking Gabbard for her service, McCain told her, “When I hear the name Tulsi Gabbard, I think of Assad apologist. I think of someone who comes back to the United States and is spouting propaganda from Syria.”
