Rick Santorum: Liberal media is using Pope Francis to push ‘real division’ among American Catholics

Published

on

Former GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum accused media outlets of intentionally taking Pope Frances out of context in order to foment dissent among Catholics, Right Wing Watch reported.

“I know his heart, and yet he will say things that I know he means innocently and I know they’re innocent,” Santorum told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg. “But it can be taken by those, let’s just say not so innocent, to try to twist what his meanings really is.”

“You’re talking about the liberal media with their agenda,” Malzberg replied.

“Yeah, it is.” the former Pennsylvania senator said. “They want nothing more than to drive a real division between the church, not just here but around the world.”

Santorum did not criticize the Pope himself. Instead, he argued, reporters have twisted his words, like his recent remark that Catholics did not need to “breed like rabbits.” Pope Francis later backtracked on that statement.

“I think this Pope is great,” Malzberg said. “I just don’t get a lot of the things he says.”

Santorum said the issue is not how well the Pope discusses Church doctrine.

“The casualness of the conversation [with reporters] leads many who would love to see division leads them to take those and run with them in a direction that the pope certainly didn’t attend,” he said.

The Associated Press reported on Friday that Santorum is considering another presidential campaign, and will take part at a forum hosted by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) that will feature several other prospective GOP candidates.

The man rattled off a string of profanities and capped it off with "f*ck you." Several security guards blocked the man from getting close to Gutierrez.

"Apologies for some of the background noise you just heard," MSNBC host Hallie Jackson said as the network cut the sound.

‘Major jealousy’: CNN panel of black voters tear Trump apart for continued Obama obsession

Published

on

CNN on Monday hosted a panel of black voters from South Carolina to discuss the 2020 Democratic primary, but the conversation quickly derailed into a discussion of their mutual dislike for President Donald Trump.

During the discussion, CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked them if they were surprised that Trump kept bringing up Obama during his campaign rallies and in his tweets.

"There is a major jealousy there!" said South Carolina Democrat Alex Belk.

Democrat Vanity Deterville went so far as to say that Trump's election in 2016 was a "whitelash" against the country's first black president, and she accused the current president of using "emblazoned racism" to get himself elected.

‘Devin Nunes keeps getting caught in one clumsy lie after another’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough busted Rep. Devin Nunes for lying about his own role in President Donald Trump's scheme against Ukraine -- which he then tried to cover up during the impeachment inquiry.

House Democrats have released documents showing Nunes and his staffer Derek Harvey communicating with Lev Parnas, an associate of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani -- who directed efforts to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden.

"Devin Nunes just keeps getting caught in one clumsy lie after another," Scarborough said. "Remember the facade of the press conference on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue he made a total fool of himself lying about information he claimed to have, but he didn't have until the White House fed it to him."
