Nancy Pelosi cast an analogy on Monday that effectively likened illegal immigrant so-called “Dreamers” with children killed during the Holocaust.
Speaking to reporters after the Democrats caved and ended their federal government shutdown, the House Minority Leader said America is not a “Sophie’s Choice nation” — a reference to a novel about a mother who had to decide which of her children the Nazis would kill in a concentration camp.
A CNN reporter had a moment of honesty on air that is sure to displease ratings-chasing executives.
Maeve Reston, a National Political Reporter for the cable news network, appeared this morning and said as she talks to voters in battleground states, no one is talking about the alleged Russian influence on the 2016 election or Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ memory is slipping.
MSNBC confronted the 76-year-old Sanders over comments he made in 2013 amid a looming government shutdown, with the obvious implication that Democrats are doing the exact same thing Sanders accused Republicans of five years ago.
A Freudian slip temporarily gave a Democratic condemnation of President Trump’s alleged “sh*thole” remark a very different meaning.
A group of House Democrats gathered before reporters on Thursday to announce they are introducing a resolution to censure Trump after he allegedly referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as “sh*tholes,” a claim he denies.
But as Rep. Cedric Richmond did his best to lambaste the president, he royally botched his opening line.
“First, let me thank you all for coming today,” he told reporters.
“Which is really our need to call an unfortunate press conference and address the country over remarks that 1., should have never been made, 2., that were factually inadequate, uh, inaccurate,” Richmond said.
“So, I know there are a lot of questions,” he continued after swallowing deeply.
Nancy Pelosi apparently thinks she’s everyone’s mother — including the President of the United States.
During a Wednesday Congressional ceremony honoring former Sen. Bob Dole, she told President Trump, Vice President Pence, congressional leaders, members of Congress and guests when to clap during her remarks.
Ohio voters are weighing in on President Donald Trump’s job performance during his first year in office, and it’s clear most are giving him a thumbs up.
On Fox & friends’ “Buckeye State Breakfast with Friends,” a reporter spoke with folks at Momma’s West Main Café in Hillsboro, Ohio, an area where 76 percent of voters backed Trump in 2016.
The editor of the local newspaper invited the television station to “Trump country” to talk to voters.
Sue, who works at Walmart, explained how important the recent tax cuts were to her and others in Hillsboro.
“Well, for one thing, it’s a very, very big deal,” Sue said of $1,000 bonuses for Walmart employees, which the company credited to tax cuts. “When you work for a company and they want to give you a $1,000 check just because the president gave us a tax break, to me it’s a big deal.”
Sue clearly does not appreciate House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s reference to the bonuses as “crumbs.”
“We’ve been called deplorables and everything else,” she said, a reference to Hillary Clinton’s disparaging remarks about Trump supporters during the 2016 campaign.
“This deplorable appreciates those bread crumbs,” Sue said to an applause in the diner. “The disrespect our president has been shown really bothers me. I’ve prayed about it many, many times. I wasn’t an Obama fan, but I never treated him with disrespect. No matter who your president is, he deserves respect.”
Alex, a local realtor, told Fox the mainstream media just doesn’t understand rural Americans.
“The mainstream media and the left on university campuses and the liberal elite, there’s a huge misunderstanding of rural America, and frankly white America,” he said. “I know we have unpleasant factions on both sides among our country, but the average normal person in this area – in the heartland so to speak – is not preoccupied with race. That’s not what we get up and talk about at all, if ever.
“We’re talking about the economy, we’re talking about jobs, how to make America safe, how to make America great again,” Alex said. “That’s what we want. The only color we’re occupied with is green – the economy. Not these racial differences that liberals so often want to pit us against each other.”
CNN also met up with voters in Youngstown, Ohio recently to see if Trump is “living up to their expectations.”
The news site points out that about 7,000 Mahoning County Democrats switched parties to become Republicans and vote for Trump in 2016.
The news site met with five folks from a variety of occupations, including a black pastor, white stay at home mom, and young female minority student, all former Democrats who changed parties to vote for Trump.
Every one of them gave Trump high marks.
“We’re one year in,” the moderator said. “How’s he doing.”
“Fantastic,” one said.
“Great,” said another.
“Phenomenal,” another agreed.
“Better than I ever would have dreamed,” the stay at home mom said. “And I mean that sincerely.”
“I agree,” the pastor said. “He’s doing wonderful, staying on task.”
The moderator asked about immigration, which they all agreed was an important issue.
“As far as I’m concerned, they’re stealing jobs from rightful citizens,” said Rick Green, an iron worker.
The group pointed to the need for rules and respect.
“I feel like when people come here illegally that’s very disrespectful. You don’t respect our laws and you shouldn’t be able to come here freely like that,” the student, Justis Harrison, said.
Geno DiFabio, a machine shop worker, said he’s not turned off by Trump’s tough talk on Twitter.
“I know what he’s done. And I’m starting to get an inkling of why he uses Twitter in the way he does. Because if all he had to rely on is what people say about him, oh my God, I might not like the guy,” DiFabio said. “But I love the guy. I love the job he’s doing.”
Harrison said she doesn’t buy the media’s portrayal of Trump as a racist, because she’s met him in person at a rally.
“He was just the nicest person and if he was a racist as everyone paints him out to be he could have just walked right past me and not said a word,” she said.
Trump’s success, they said, is evident in home prices and the stock market.
“Industries are booming everywhere I’ve seen,” Green said. “There are small businesses starting to pick up.”
Derrick Anderson, the black pastor, agreed that Trump’s tax cuts are making a big difference.
“If you expand your business in the inner city, so then my community will benefit from this tax cut,” he said.
All of the guests agreed that the media is biased against Trump.
Anna Para, a retired mother of four, said many Ohioans like Trump most because he’s like them, “real Americans.”
“He’s like tenacious sometimes and says stuff off the cuff, like we do, like real Americans do. We’re not perfect,” Para said. “I’m tired of suave, I’m tired of polished, I’m tired of the teleprompter. I am. I want my country back.”
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters made a spectacle out of announcing she doesn’t plan to attend President Donald Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address.
Waters is on a crusade to impeach the president because she believes he’s “the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth,” and Trump “doesn’t deserve my attention,” she said.
Waters’ comments undoubtedly appeals to her leftist supporters, but U.S. Army veteran Ricky Taylor quickly pointed out that the 79-year-old career politician doesn’t speak for all minorities and offered to take her seat at the State of the Union address later this month to thank the president in person.
CNN isn’t letting a media-driven story go away, simply because of a doctor’s qualified opinion.
“Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter, who dismissed legitimate questions about Hillary Clinton’s health status, only to push them about Trump’s, is now dissatisfied with Dr. Ronny Jackson’s response to a question about the president’s “mental fitness.”
Ana Navarro has a particularly nasty case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
CNN’s favorite “Republican” contributor took to Twitter on Sunday to call Trump a “Coño” and demand that he pass protections for illegal aliens to prove he’s not a racist.
If @realDonaldTrump wants to try to do something to contradict the widely-held perception that he is a dark-hearted racist, there is a quick way for him to do it: exert some damn leadership and pass #DACA. Pass it now. ¡Coño!
