Democrats lampoon Trump’s endorsement of Romney

Published

on

Before real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump even had a chance to officially endorse Mitt Romney for president on Thursday, the Democratic National Convention whipped together a video that mocked the entire ordeal.

After noting that Romney ranked 47th out of 50 in job creation as governor and “bled manufacturing jobs from Massachusetts,” the video asked why Trump would want to endorse him.

It’s because they both like firing people, according to the video, which was released hours before Trump held his press conference.

The American Bridge 21st Century Foundation, a Democrat affiliated super PAC, released another video hours later.

The video consists of a series of clips of Romney and Trump each talking about various issues, and concluded the only difference between them is their hair.

Barack Obama’s official Twitter account highlighted the endorsement as well.

Economist mocks GOP for trying to pin racism on Democrats — after telling a harrowing story about anti-black economic envy

Published

on

Economist Julianne Malveaux explained to the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that there was a time in the United States where black Americans were actually closing the wealth gap with white Americans -- until white Americans rioted and burned their property.

The area's prosperity came to an end in 1921 when white Tulsa residents used baseless accusation of a black man sexually assaulting a white woman as a justification to chase out all black residents and set fire to their neighborhoods. Hundreds of black residents were killed in the riots and the majority fled the city.

Published

on

Whoopi Goldberg had to cool off a heated argument on "The View" between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain, who complained about being the show's "sacrificial Republican."

McCain mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for appearing at President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Orlando, where the president belittled him from the stage.

"The transformation is complete," McCain said. "That's what I thought last night, the transformation is complete."

She then warned the other panelists not to overlook the crowd enthusiasm for Trump, and she recalled a conversation with a producer who couldn't understand why the president's supporters loved him so much.

Reparations hearing erupts in applause after Ta-Nehisi Coates gives McConnell an epic lesson on racism

Published

on

Author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Wednesday delivered an epic smack down of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations for slavery.

In Coates's opening remarks, he responded directly to McConnell's claim that the government should not pay out reparations to black Americans because slavery ended more than 150 years ago.

Coates pointed out that the United States was still paying out pensions to the families of Civil War soldiers "well into this century" and he said that the government still honors treaties it signed even though no one who signed them is still alive today.
