Fox News host: Kids living in homes receiving aid are the ‘Democratic party’s new version of slavery’

Published

on

During a Fox News discussion regarding the high incidence of American families with children receiving government aid, an Outnumbered co-host called the children of those families the “Democratic party’s new version of slavery.”

Host Harris Faulkner noted that a recent Census Bureau report states that 65 percent of American children live in households receiving government support in the form of food stamps, Medicaid, and the national school lunch program, in video captured by Media Matters.

Turning to co-host and former Clueless actress Stacey Dash, Faulkner said, “Stacey, I know you have some strong thoughts on this.”

Dash immediately called it “slavery” before listing off a seemingly random laundry list of unrelated topics.

“This is the Democratic party’s new version of slavery to me,” she stated. “I am a believer in the American dream. But as long as you are told where you have to live, what you have to eat, what you have to wear, where you have to go to school, you will never know the true meaning of expression. And, the power and value of  self achievement. You’ll never know what that is.”

Saying she was playing “devil’s advocate,” a seemingly confused Faulkner asked Dash, “What would you say to somebody who would argue that those so many of these children might be needing these programs and so you would be leaving them behind if you didn’t shore them up.”

“You educate them, ” Dash simply stated. “You support them and you give them a certain amount of time, you don’t just keep giving it to them.”

Faulkner replied, “Um,” before moving on to co-host Melissa Francis.

What would the GOP do if Trump actually shot someone? A former government ethics chief explains

Former director of government ethics, Walter Shaub

President Donald Trump infamously said in 2016 that his supporters were so loyal that he could shoot someone in broad daylight and not lose any support.

Walter Shaub, who served as chief of the Government Ethics Office under former President Barack Obama, hilariously imagined how elected Republicans would react if Trump actually did shoot someone on 5th Avenue.

"It was indecorous of the president to shoot someone on Fifth Avenue," Shaub said, imagining a scripted GOP response. "I would have preferred he not do that. In the strongest possible terms, I add that I find it to be generally inconsistent with the higher aims of responsible governance. And you can quote me on that."

Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks

Published

on

As CNN contributor Rick Santorum struggled to defend Donald Trump's quid pro quo proposal to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky on Friday morning, his fellow Pennsylvania Republican, former Rep. Charlie Dent, laughed at his fumbling for answers.

Sitting down with "New Day" host John Berman, Santorum once again attempted to make the case that the president was withholding aid over Ukraine corruption and not because he was seeking dirt on political opponents -- and didn't fare well as Berman kept fact-checking him.

With the two former GOP lawmakers on split-screen, Santorum refused to concede that the president was asking for a personal favor during the phone-call that eventually led to a House impeachment inquiry into the president's actions.

Ukraine’s ambassador to Austria shreds Trump allies for giving Putin their ‘enthusiastic help’

Published

on

Olexander Scherba, who currently serves as Ukraine's ambassador to Austria, sent out a scathing tweet on Friday excoriating allies of President Donald Trump who seem hellbent on helping Russian President Vladimir Putin reassert Russia's dominance over Eastern Europe.

In his tweet, Scherba explained the scope of Putin's ambitions, which he said went far beyond seizing Ukrainian territory.

"Putin isn’t just fighting Ukraine," he wrote. "He is fighting the whole world order, created by Reagan."

The ambassador then turned his attention to American supporters of President Donald Trump who have been cheering Putin's actions.
