Bill Maher: "I'm Pissed Off" About Ebola, "People Are Nervous And I Don't Blame Them"

BILL MAHER: I said in the monologue I was pissed off about Ebola and I am... People are nervous and I don't blame them for being nervous. There's a lot of talk now about whether we should have travel restrictions from that part of the world... We don't really know what the situation is here because the cat got out of the bag about a week ago and

Krauthammer Slams Obama's Ebola Czar: "It's a PR Move From Beginning To End"

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I don't think it's going to make any difference one way or the other. It's a PR move from beginning to end. It gives the appearance and motion, this is what Obama specializes in. You have a VA scandal, an IRS scandal, a Secret Service scandal, you fire a guy at the top so you have the appearance of motion. Here you're putting a

Krauthammer: "We're Going To Have To Quarantine A Lot Of Folks"

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Slow to respond and always behind. You hear the administration say, "Well, a travel ban is not off the table." We've been hearing for weeks how it's a terrible idea, it will make it worse. It's the most logical thing to do. British Airways is not flying into these countries, and it will be done, it's only a question of time. Bu



Howard Dean on Ebola: "I Discount Everything Republicans Say;" Rick Perry "An Ignoramus"

HOWARD DEAN: I think it's fine. He's a manager. He's not a doctor. Look, the Republicans just slay me. They are just so ridiculous. So they had an Ebola czar. His name is Vivek Murthy. He's President Obama's nominee for Surgeon General which the Republicans have been stalling at the request of the National Rifle Association since February. So, the

Earnest: Ebola Czar Ron Klain "Has All The Credentials We Could Want"

QUESTION: So just to get back to the question, he does not have any expertise with Ebola or public health? JOSH EARNEST: His area of expertise is implementation, and that is exactly what is needed. Somebody who can coordinate this broad inter-agency response. We need to make sure that this tenacious response is up to the standards of the America

Scott Brown: "We Would Not Be Worrying About Ebola Right Now" If Romney Won

"Gosh can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now? He was right on Russia, he was right on Obamacare, he was right on the economy. And I guarantee you we would not be worrying about Ebola right now and, you know, worrying about our foreign policy screw ups," U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown (R-NH) said on the Friday broadcast of Brian Kilm



Obama: "My Credit Card Was Rejected" At Restaurant In New York

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I should mention, by the way, I went to a restaurant up in New York, when I was there for the UN general assembly, and my credit card was rejected. I guess I don't use it enough. They thoguht there was some fraud going on. Fortunately, Michelle had hers. I was trying to explain to the waitress, "no, I really think I've be

"Special Report" Panel Asks If Ebola Fear Is "Over The Top"

George Will, Charles Krauthammer, and Juan Williams join Bret Baier to discuss the implications of the 2014 ebola outbreak.

Earnest: "So Far No One With Ebola Symptoms Has Entered This Country"

REPORTER: In terms of the Ebola response, the administration talked about the pre-departure screenings in those three countries in Africa and the arrival screenings now. But as far as I can tell, this system has a 0% success rate. None of the people who were stopped in Africa had Ebola and the only person who did have Ebola got through the system.



Laura Ingraham On General Dempsey: "We Have Enough Political Hacks"

BILL O'REILLY: [General Martin] Dempsey, the head of the joint chiefs, the top general, he works for Obama. Ok, so I don't think he's going to Dempsey is going to come out and say, my direct boss, the commander-in-chief or the Armed forces... LAURA INGRAHAM: Yeah, its all political. O'REILLY: With all due respect to Gen. Dempsey, who is a p

Cruz: Time For Congress To Reconvene And Pass Travel Ban From Countries With Ebola

SEN. TED CRUZ: The approach of the Obama administration so far has been like its approach to so many other things, fundamentally unserious. And the time has come to ban commercial air travel from countries that have an active Ebola outbreak. The arguments the administration is giving against it don't make any sense. And the top priority, Sean, s

Chuck Todd: Before Ebola, Obama's Approval Rating Had Been "Ticking Up"

CHUCK TODD: Nobody knows for sure, nobody wants to fully connect to it the second Ebola patient, but it was sort of like the timing of it all starting about Monday or Tuesday. The president's approval rating actually had been ticking up the last couple of weeks as he was dropping bombs on terrorists, on bad guys in Iraq and Syria. And so his number



MSNBC "Anxiety Expert" Says Oversaturation Of Ebola News Can Make People "Feel Debilitated"

[beginning at minute 6 of this video] TAMRON HALL, MSNBC: There are 7,000 people exposed in West Africa, we don't live in a bubble, this is a global concern. And I do believe right before our coverage heightened, there were a million people asking us why aren't you covering the Ebola outbreak in West Africa? Well we are putting this in as part

Obama: "I Don't Have A Philosophical Objection, Necessarily, To A Travel Ban"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I don't have a philosophical objection, necessarily, to a travel ban if that is the thing that is going to keep the American people safe. The problem is that ‒ in all the discussions that I’ve had thus far with experts in the field, experts in infectious disease… a travel ban is less effective than the measures that we are cu

Chris Matthews: Washington D.C. Is Now "Ground Zero" For Ebola Fear

Ebola and all the terror it inspires is now the number one focus of the nation’s capital. Chris Matthews has more with Rep. Peter Welch. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Ebola steals the election. It's not only topic A, it's topic A to Z. Good evening, I'm Chris Matthews in Washington, which is now ground zero for the Ebola fear. It's now official, Ebola is
