Hogan Gidley is a campaign spokesman for President Trump, who made an appearance on MSNBC with host Hallie Jackson. 

With the 2020 Presidential Election days away, what was likely supposed to be an interview to spotlight Trump, turned into an argument and allegations of widespread voter fraud. 

Jackson began the back and forth debate when she brought up a statement from FBI Director Christopher Wray.

“Director Wray talked specifically about the idea that — essentially I’m paraphrasing here —  there is no widespread evidence of voter fraud, that the American people should feel confident in the way that voting procedures are being conducted,” Jackson said.

The MSNBC host then added whether the president is spreading misinformation over voting security.

“Given this new information from Director Wray and the comments he’s now reiterating, will the president back off on making those claims?” Jackson asked. “Is that a conversation that you and the campaign are having with him?”

Gidley did respond to Jackson’s claims and questions.

“You can’t deny what you’ve seen on television and all these local markets,” Gidley said.

The Trump campaign spokesman also added that Americans want a free and fair election, which is what Trump is pushing for when discussing voter fraud.

Both Jackson and Gidley continued the back and forth discussion, which ultimately led to Jackson cutting the interview.

Former military veteran and current host of Fox & Friends Weekend, Pete Hegseth, shared his thoughts about his journey to host a national television show, the problem with higher education, and how social media prevents independent thinking, in a recent conversation with Bobby Burack of Outkick.

Hegseth wrote a book called Modern Warriors which is due to be released on Tuesday. “I think readers across the spectrum will enjoy it as it reminds them why America is such a special country,” Hegseth said. “I’m not really asking questions – I’m facilitating the discussion. What’s cool about these guys is that they get really comfortable.”  

Hegseth, once a member of the Army National Guard, was in the running to head the United States Department of Veteran Affairs before he became engulfed in an adultery controversy. He explains that his military experience was a catalyst for his television career.  

“One day they asked, hey have you thought about asking questions instead of answering them?” Shortly after that conversation, the network gave him a chance to host Fox and Friends. “I hadn’t done professional television in that role before. But if you’ve been shot at, reading a teleprompter and asking a couple of questions is not the most stressful thing you’ve ever done in your life.”  

Asked about his Ivy League education, Hegseth said that “he’s sending his degree back to Harvard and telling them that they can keep it. The challenge is getting these parents to wake up and stop sending their kids back to these schools.”

Fox Corp. will not open its offices or facilities until at least April 2021, according to the company’s CEO Lachlan Murdoch who recently sent out a memo to employees explaining what the next several months may look like.

“Over the past eight months, our teams have been working together more closely than ever despite the physical separation,” the letter said. “It was our hope that the trajectory of the pandemic would be such that we could begin our reopening in January 2021. However, with cases continuing to rise, we have delayed our next possible phase one reopening date to no earlier than April 2021.”

In addition to extending the remote work period, Fox is also going to prolong the period when it pays full-time employees’ health insurance premiums. That benefit will now last through the end of 2021.

“We made this decision with the well-being of the entire FOX organization in mind. With most employees continuing to work remotely through at least the end of March, we are able to maintain a low density in our offices for those employees whose jobs do require them to be on site.”

MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow is urging people to take COVID-19 more seriously after her long-time partner contracted the virus and almost died. Maddow returned to her show Thursday following a two-week hiatus.

On November 6th, Maddow announced that she was taking a leave of absence from her show after she encountered someone who tested positive for coronavirus. On her return, she announced that person was her partner, Susan Mikula. The pair have been together for 21 years.

“My relationship with Susan at the end of the day is the only thing that I would kill or die for,” Maddow said. “Susan has been sick with COVID for these past two weeks, at one time we thought it might kill her.” Maddow has tested negative for the virus. She begged her viewers to not downplay the severity of the coronavirus as cases surge across the country. “”For Thanksgiving next week, you really are just going to have it at home without people coming over. Yeah, that is going to suck, but it’s going to suck so much less than you or someone in your family getting sick. Trust me!”
