Activist Alison Howard of Concerned Women for America told Fox News over the weekend that Lena Dunham was backing an organization that had murdered “millions of young women” with her support for Planned Parenthood.
On the Saturday edition of Fox & Friends, host Anna Kooiman noted that Dunham had convinced a number of Hollywood actresses — like Amy Poehler, Ellen Page, and Leslie Mann — to wear pink T-shirts backing Planned Parenthood with a campaign she had started by going topless, but speculated that they could be doing “just the opposite” from empowering young women.
“Planned Parenthood sneaks under the guise of women’s health with these pink T-shirts, pink tennis shoes, but all they’re really promoting is abortion,” Howard opined. “It’s actually sad. It’s ironic and sad that women like Lena Dunham and these other celebrities, when they plaster ‘I heart Planned Parenthood’ across their chest, they’re saying, I heart an organization that single-handedly has murdered millions of young women. Little women in the womb that never got a chance like they did.”
“This organization has been caught red handed committing — not only participating in helping sex traffickers and children abusers, but also, aiding and abetting those who have committed abortion on basis of race and gender,” she continued. “And at our taxpayer expense. To a tune of $1.2 million a day of taxpayer funds they do it.”
“Well, yeah, critics of Planned Parenthood say it is an abortion factory,” Kooiman remarked. “But they would say, ‘We help with family planning, we also offer birth control, and condoms, and help women plan for their future rather than having unwanted children. But do you believe that they’re actually teaching promiscuity?”
Howard argued that the actresses were just “putting on a T-shirt and saying, ‘You deserve a free handout from the government.'”
“I hope that young voters take notice that Planned Parenthood is not looking to help you in your real future with jobs, the economy, getting married, having kids one day, and living the American dream,” she insisted. “They’re trying to retake the American dreams in pink T-shirts that advocate abortion.”

‘Teargaslighting’: Laura Ingraham pivots to tear gas trutherism now that hydroxychloroquine out of news cycle
Trump mounted the photo-op, in which officials also launched flash-bang shells and rubber bullets, because he was "annoyed" by reports that he had hidden in the White House bunker. Ivanka Trump "urged" her dad to come up with a "more personal way of demonstrating toughness," according to The New York Times.
Colbert names Trump’s siege on DC the ‘Tinyman Square’ incident
It wasn't quite Tiananmen Square, where a still-unknown number of Chinese protesters were murdered by the government in 1989, but it was the closest thing President Donald Trump managed to score this week.
After watching the footage of the military tear gas, beat and shoot at protesters so Trump could march from the presidential bunker to St. John's Church for the cameras.
"It was like Tiananmen Square," Colbert deemed. "Except, in Trump's case, Tinyman Square."
Trump claimed on "The Fox & Friends" that no one was tear-gassed, so it's unclear what was stinging people's eyes and making them cough, choke and tear up. The Park Police released a statement saying it wasn't tear gas. While the moment was captured on video from dozens of different camera angles, one protester actually grabbed a canister of Oleoresins Capiscum, or "OC," the gas that was used.
Rachel Maddow shows increase in cases of COVID-19 in states where the GOP wants to move its convention
The Republican Party is determined to have a massive GOP convention where they can have hundreds of its members, delegates and elected officials celebrate President Donald Trump. The only problem is that the coronavirus is still going strong. North Carolina's governor finally had to make a decision and tell the GOP that it was too dangerous to have that many people fly into their state while they're still trying to get the virus under control.
So, mere months before their convention, the Republican Party was forced to look for another location. As MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained, however, their options aren't great. While New York has managed to flatten their curve and significantly reduce their cases of COVID-19, other states haven't been able to do the same.
