Conservative radio host Alex Jones defended Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) statements regarding measles vaccines by hurling a barrage of insults toward CNBC host Kelly Evans, Media Matters reported.

“You realize you’re signing on to a system of murder, you little piece of trash, tramp, filth, scum woman,” Jones yelled on his show on Tuesday. “You arrogant piece of garbage! I’m sick of all you people up there lecturing us. She’s the type of woman that wants Super Bowl ads to say, ‘Sorry you had a boy.’ All a bunch of pinhead cult members.”

Jones also called Evans a “media whore” for challenging Paul during an interview on Monday after he told another conservative radio host, Laura Ingraham, he felt most vaccines should be voluntary.

“I guess being for freedom would be really unusual,” Paul said. He was subsequently criticized for his remarks, as well as for shushing Evans during the interview.

Jones insisted that Paul was “a good guy” and said that both the Kentucky senator and his father, former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) had “basic morals.”

“They know how dangerous the vaccines are,” Jones argued. “They know what’s in the inserts. They’re not just going to go along with the system and lie.”

While vaccines were a great medical development, Jones said, they were controlled by “the new world order” and were now being promoted by both liberal and conservative surrogates.

“They’ve got Rachel Maddow, Obama, Fox News, Bill O’Reilly, all of them, attacking anybody that tells the truth,” Jones said. “They’re just like, ‘There are no side effects, it’s totally safe, and it will protect you, you will not get the measles, if you get this shot.’ All pure bull.”

Jones also alluded to an interview he conducted with Paul in 2009, before he took office. As Media Matters also reported, Paul complained about what he described as potential federal overreach with the introduction of mandatory vaccinations.

“The first sort of thing you see with martial law is mandates, and they’re talking about making it mandatory,” Paul said at the time. “I worry because the last flu vaccine we had in the 1970s more people died form the vaccine than died from swine flu. I think you have to use your brain but I think every individual should be allowed to make that choice.”

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

Published

on

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’

Published

on

One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.

"I love them much more than the men," he added.

Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."

"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.

Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.

"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."

Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
