Biden's Border Crisis with Chad Wolf
In July, nearly 200,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended trying to cross the border -- a 325% increase from the average number of July apprehensions during the Trump administration. Ten of those apprehended were on the terror watch list. Enough fentanyl was seized to kill every single American

Brutal honesty with Kellyanne Conway
Kellyanne Conway: "I. . . survived many people trying to take me down and push me out, and I won't forget that."
Former Trump senior counselor Kellyanne Conway sat down with Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt and Washington Times Commentary Editor Kelly Sadler in a fiery interview to discuss her new book, Here's the Deal, her time in the White House, and critiques of Trump's 2020 campaign team.
"If Washington is a town where people have mastered the art of backstabbing, Kellyanne Conway is not a backstabber," said Charlie during the interview. "You see her coming and you better be prepared for it."

Durham probe + Mrs. Greene goes to Washington
"You can't compare it to Watergate because it would be a disservice to all of the people involved in Watergate, this is so much worse." Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt gives his take on the explosive allegations in the Durham probe. Charlie tells Andy Parks about how, after ignoring the story that broke Saturday, a few left-tilting news sites bestirred themselves late Monday with articles focused on rebutting or downplaying the report. And then, say what you want about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, but one thing is for sure. The “political bad girl” has not gone all Washington on her constituents back home in Georgia. Charlie shares details on his recent sit-down with Marjorie Taylor Greene and the reaction to her arrival in Washington.
New front in attack on Trump
"It is always wonderful to have new allies fighting to save our country. It is also delightful when hopeless nerds entertain us with their pretzel logic and fancy words." Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt joins Andy Parks with a look back at how the loudest voices in political conversation are the most out of touch with regular voters. Self-awareness is generally not the strong suit of the intellectual, literary rowboat cruise ship set in New York City.
When all else fails, go to war?
Look! Over there! War in Ukraine! Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt joins Andy Parks and says President Biden is a desperate, dangerous weapon-wielding idiot who suffers from the profound delusion that he is some kind of expert on the world stage and knows what he is doing. Charlie says only in Washington could a fool with Biden’s record of failure, dishonesty and disaster keep getting promoted until reaching the highest office in the land. We saw what a disaster Biden was at ending the war in Afghanistan. Who on earth would trust him to start a new one?
Forever 2021: Merry Christmas and Let’s Go, Brandon!
It is only right and fitting that we give a little shoutout to President Biden this Christmas as we close out the first year of his historically disastrous presidency. So says Washington Times Opinion Editor Charlie Hurt. Charlie tells Andy Parks he's not sure whether Biden is aware of how disastrous it is. At least you can’t say Biden hasn’t unified America. Despite his very best efforts to divide us, everyone this year is uniting around this simple Yule Tide refrain. Let’s go, Brandon!
Been following him since he wrote for the Detroit News!
Charlie, saw your interview on Fox Saturday 11/6. Your the first guest who explained exactly about the big lie. Four years of lies in order to secure votes for the mid term. And there was no visible outrage from the right. They just sat back and watched. I’m just a retired old guy and from the first day of Trump’s term I realized what the left was up to. You also knew. You described exactly what happened. Let’s hope Durham has his day before congress.
