Fox New host Bill O’Reilly called out CNN anchor Don Lemon Tuesday, saying that Lemon refused to cover a story regarding former National Security Adviser Susan Rice on his program. Lemon was not having it.

O’Reilly tweeted a video of Lemon, which O’Reilly said showed the CNN host refusing to cover a story about Rice, who has been accused of leaked classified information to the press and made requests to unmask the identities of U.S. persons in intelligence reports for political purposes—both of which Rice has denied.

In the video, Lemon said that he will not “insult the intelligence” of his viewers by repeating baseless allegations that Trump and his team were illegally wiretapped. He did not mention Rice in the clip.

Lemon shot back on Twitter, denying that he refused to cover the story and referencing the multiple women who have accused O’Reilly of sexual harassment.

For the first time, a majority of Americans support former President Barack Obama’s health care bill, according to a Gallup poll released Tuesday.

Fifty-five percent of Americans now support Obamacare, the poll reported. This number is a serious increase from five months ago when 42 percent of people approved of the Affordable Care Act while 53 percent disapproved. This is the first time a majority of Americans have approved of the law since Gallup began polling for it in 2012.

Each group polled—Republicans, Democrats and independents—are all more likely to approve of the ACA now than just after President Donald Trump was elected, according to Gallup.

Despite this news, only 26 percent want to keep Obamacare as it is, according to the poll. Forty percent want to keep the Affordable Care Act but amend it significantly and 30 percent want to repeal and replace the law.

The findings are notable because in March, House Republicans pulled their preferred health care bill after they could not garner enough support for the legislation.

The poll was conducted over the telephone from April 1-2, 2017 with a sample size of 1,023 adults 18 and older. The margin of error is ±4 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) announced Friday that she will vote “no” on confirming President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch after publicly voicing her indecision on the subject early this week.

In a Medium post titled “Gorsuch: Good for Corporations, Bad for Working People,” McCaskill voiced her opposition to the nominee and explained why she will vote against him. She attributed her decision not to a party line vote, but one she came to after reviewing Gorsuch’s record, which she says shows a “stunning lack of humanity.”

“I cannot support Judge Gorsuch because a study of his opinions reveal a rigid ideology that always puts the little guy under the boot of corporations,” she said in the post. “He is evasive, but his body of work isn’t. Whether it is a freezing truck driver or an autistic child, he has shown a stunning lack of humanity.”

In the post, McCaskill painted Gorsuch as a champion of corporations and special interests, adding that he would not uphold Trump’s promise to help working people.

“The President who promised working people he would lift them up has nominated a judge who can’t even see them,” she wrote.

McCaskill’s announcement came just one day after two of her Democratic colleagues— Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) — announced separately that they will vote next week to confirm Gorsuch. Many Democrats have publicly said they will vote no, citing either Gorsuch’s record or Republicans’ refusal to give a hearing to former President Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland.

The Environmental Protection Agency attempted to publish a highlight reel of praise for President Donald Trump’s rollback of regulations related to climate change, but it inadvertently included a wrongly-attributed bit of criticism.

An email sent out by the EPA, obtained by Politico, featured a quote attributed to Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), which called the order “irresponsible” and “irrational.”

“With this Executive Order, President Trump has chosen to recklessly bury his head in the sand. Walking away from the Clean Power Plan and other climate initiatives, including critical resiliency projects is not just irresponsible — it’s irrational,” the quote read. “Today’s executive order calls into question America’s credibility and our commitment to tackling the greatest environmental challenge of our lifetime. With the world watching, President Trump and Administrator Pruitt have chosen to shirk our responsibility, disregard clear science and undo the significant progress our country has made to ensure we leave a better, more sustainable planet for generations to come.”

The only problem? Capito, a Republican from coal country, didn’t say that. That quote is actually from Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE), according to Politico. When alerted to the error, an EPA spokesman told Poltico that the email was quickly replaced with another one, which can be read on its site now.

“We apologize for the error and are making sure that our process is improved as we build our team,” the spokesman said in a statement to Poltico.
