Published

Members of the Black Lives Matter movement can be seen challenging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in footage from a meeting in New Hampshire last week that was published by GOOD magazine on Monday.

“I say this as respectfully as I can: if you don’t tell black people what we need to do, then we won’t tell you all what you need to do,” one organizer, Julius Jones, tells her.

“I’m not telling you,” the candidate replies. “I’m just telling you to tell me.”

“What I mean to say is that this is and has always been a white problem of violence,” Jones says. “There’s not much that we can do to stop the violence against us.”

While the video has the footage mistakenly listed as being filmed on April 11, the magazine stated that it was shot on Aug. 11, after the activists from the movement’s Boston chapter were blocked from entering a Clinton event in Keene and instead taken to an “overflow room” to meet with her. The video was reportedly available on the group’s YouTube account before being listed as private before being shown on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show on Monday night.

The footage was split into two installments. The first one can be seen here.

Update, 11:14 p.m. EST: MSNBC posted footage from the video, as well as an interview between guest host Melissa Harris-Perry and Jones and fellow organizer Daunasia Yancey.

“What we were looking for from Secretary Clinton was a reflection on her personal responsibility for being part of the cause of this problem, mass incarceration,” Yancey told Harris-Perry. “Her response, targeting on policy, wasn’t sufficient for us.”

The interview can be seen below.

Published

CNN host John King on Thursday found himself at a loss for words while watching the latest escapade of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, who is in Ukraine this week to apparently resume his quest to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

During a segment about Giuliani's latest Ukraine caper, King played an interview clip with former Fox News host Eric Bolling in which Giuliani refused to say what he was doing in the country.

"I'm not here -- I don't have to defend myself!" Giuliani said, when asked about his reasons for traveling to Kiev. "I didn't do anything wrong. I didn't do a darn thing wrong!"

Published

on

James Rosen of Sinclair Broadcasting suggested on Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was lying when she said she does not hate people because her Catholic faith teaches her not to.

Rosen caught the Speaker's wrath at her weekly press conference, when he shouted a question about her "hating" President Donald Trump.

Pelosi responded by coming back to the podium and dressing down Rosen. She noted that Catholics are taught not to hate.

Later, the Sinclair reporter showed up at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) weekly press conference.

‘Don’t mess with me’: Pelosi’s presser ends with a bang as she blasts reporter for asking if she ‘hates’ Trump

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly rebuked a reporter who asked whether she hated President Donald Trump.

The California Democrat announced Thursday morning that she had asked Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler to draft articles of impeachment, and she then announced that the committee would hear evidence in the case in a hearing Monday.

"Ukraine was the vehicle of the president's actions (but) this isn't about Ukraine," Pelosi said. "This is about Russians. Who benefited? Who benefited from that holding that military assistance?"

"All roads lead to Putin," she added. "Understand that."
