Harlow responded in stride, thanking Porter for the well wishes, but quickly steering the conversation away from her child: "Janet, thank you for being with us, and I appreciate the congratulations on our son on the way".
Late-night comedians went in full force on President Donald Trump on Tuesday after he formally endorsed Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore this week, despite allegations that he harassed underage girls.
Earlier in the day, roughly 250 miles (more than 400 kilometers) to the north, Moore's Democratic opponent called Moore an embarrassment who would be a "disaster" for Alabama in Washington. The instinct to downplay the charges can be seen in two New York Daily News headlines (12/4/17). And he has been crystal-clear about his reason for doing it... Trump wrote on Monday. Moore has denied all allegations.
Whatever you think of Trump, he knows stagecraft.
"The brazen assertion Monday by one of President Trump's lawyers that a president cannot be found guilty of obstruction of justice signaled a controversial defense strategy in the wide-ranging Russia probe, as Trump's political advisers are increasingly concerned about the legal advice he is receiving".
"The president made that decision, and he decided that it was better to have somebody that supports his agenda than a Democrat that doesn't", White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. Which is a perfectly fine instinct, if such language is gratuitous or unrelated-but in this case, the depravity and visceral disgust of the crime in question is the story. "I look forward to fighting alongside the President to #MAGA!"
"I damn sure believe that I have done my part to ensure that men who hurt little girls should go to jail and not the United States Senate", Jones said during a campaign stop in Birmingham, referring to his own record as a former federal prosecutor.
