New Mexico trick-or-treaters given graphic anti-abortion propaganda with candy

Published

Parents in New Mexico were outraged last week after finding graphic anti-abortion propaganda attached to candy given to their children on Halloween.

Frank Valdez told KRQE that he noticed the cards with photos of fetuses and anti-abortion messages in the trick-or-treat bags belonging to his friend’s kids.

“We just noticed these cards attached to certain candies and started pulling them off, and we were pretty shocked to see that kind of stuff targeted at kids,” Valdez recalled. “They’re forcing an agenda on little kids, pretty much.”

A debate over abortion has heated up in recent weeks in the lead up to a vote on a 20-week abortion ban in Albuquerque. Election day is Nov. 19, but early voting began last week.

KRQE tracked down the woman who handed out the anti-abortion propaganda to trick-or-treaters. While she refused to be go on camera, she defended her right to spread her beliefs if children came to her home.

But some residents think that targeting kids on Halloween should be out of bounds.

“My gut reaction is anger because children should not be subjected to that kind of adult material,” one neighbor insisted to the station.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.

Maddow breaks down how Trump’s Ukraine scandal all links back to Manafort — and the mob

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday reported how President Donald Trump is returning to the Paul Manafort playbook as he seeks re-election in 2020.

Manafort, who is currently serving a federal prison sentence, was Trump's campaign chairman during the 2016 election.

Maddow reminded how weird of a selection the choice had been seen at the time.

"Whether or not Paul Manafort, himself, is going to spend the rest of his days in prison, personally, what happened around the time that Paul Manafort was the campaign chairman for the Donald Trump for president campaign in 2016 is that however weird it seemed that the Trump campaign was hiring a guy like Manafort to come basically from Ukraine, come back to the U.S. and work on a political campaign here, I mean, what he brought with him were contacts and business partners and secret funders and organized crime-linked Kremlin connections in Ukraine," Maddow reported.
