Larry Wilmore mocks Fox co-host for derailing cooking segment by asking black colleague about Kool-Aid

Published

on

Larry Wilmore explained why it was racist for “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade to randomly ask colleague Harris Faulkner during a holiday cooking segment whether she made Kool-Aid.

Faulkner, who is black, was sharing her recipe for peach cobbler during a live broadcast last week when Kilmeade, who is white, blurted out his question — momentarily stunning the “Fox Report” anchor and co-host of “Outnumbered.”

“What are you doing?” Wilmore said. “You don’t ask a black woman if she makes Kool-Aid for Thanksgiving.”

The “Nightly Show” host said the question was inappropriate for two reasons.

“One, it’s racist, and two, because — of course she did,” Wilmore said. “Duh. But now she has to lie about it on television.”

Wilmore said Faulkner’s young daughter was present during the segment, and the girl made what looked to be a double-take at the camera after Kilmeade’s remark.

“Even Steve Doocy’s like, ‘Dude, you know we’re on TV, right?'” Wilmore said, showing the white Fox News host smirking incredulously at Kilmeade.

They worked so hard to make it something really big and special but had one problem - almost nobody showed up. “The Media admits low turnout for anti-Trump rallies ...saying enough. Democrat voters want to hear the politicians talking about issues. This is a huge distraction and will only help Donald Trump get elected. 'Greatest President since Ronald Reagan' said a counter-protester. LehighValleyLive."

Trump’s first term: hits and misses

Published

on

"Promises made, promises kept," goes one of President Donald Trump's main 2020 reelection slogans. Is that true?

Here are some of the key policy hits and misses -- comparing his accomplishments to his promises -- from a tumultuous first term.

- HITS -

Economy:

The economy will be Trump's major selling point.

GDP grew 3.1 percent in the first quarter of 2019 and the last recession was a decade ago. Unemployment is at a 50-year low of 3.6 percent.

Trump's frequent claim that the economy is probably "the best" in US history is an exaggeration, though.

Economists see growing dangers, including exploding government debt and growing backlash from Trump's aggressive trade policies, especially with China.

The racist roots of American policing

Published

on

Outrage over racial profiling and the killing of African Americans by police officers and vigilantes in recent years helped give rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.

But tensions between the police and black communities are nothing new.

There are many precedents to the Ferguson, Missouri protests that ushered in the Black Lives Matter movement. Those protests erupted in 2014 after a police officer shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown; the officer was subsequently not indicted.
