Nevada state Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) got into a war of words with one of her opponents on Thursday during a Republican congressional primary debate, Crooks and Liars reported.
Footage from the six-person debate shows Fiore looking intently at Annette Teijeiro as Teijeiro tells her, “I know you’ve been around the country, but there are problems here in Nevada. And you know what? We can’t solve problems by going and shooting people in the head.”
The remark was a reference to Fiore’s statement last December that, rather than barring Syrian refugees from entering the state, she would rather travel to Paris and “put a piece of brass in their ocular cavity and end their miserable life.”
The video, which was originally posted by Teijeiro, shows Fiore standing up and grabbing another microphone before telling her, “Your time is up.”
As the assemblywoman says that, a bell begins ringing — presumably to signal the end of Teijeiro’s turn. Fiore then adds, “You wanna have a debate with me? You wanna have a fight with me? The bell is ringing. Put your mic down.”
The two candidates had another contentious exchange later on, when Fiore said of Teijeiro, “This chick can’t run on her own merits, so the only thing she does is attack all of us.”
“I’m not a chick, I’m actually a medical doctor,” Teijeiro replied. “I’m an anaesthesiologist.”
Fiore and Teijeiro, along with four other contenders, are running to become the Republican candidate for the state’s 3rd Congressional District. The current incumbent, Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV), is running this year to represent the state in the Senate.
Watch the exchange, as posted by Crooks and Liars, below.
Rudy Giuliani is desperately trying to save Trump using ‘the word of a KGB agent’: CNN’s David Gergen
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani this week has been in Ukraine working with a wide variety of shady characters with the intent of digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Among other people, Giuliani has been talking to are Andrii Telizhenko, a former Ukrainian diplomat who is also suspected of working for Russian intelligence operations, and Andriy Derkach, who attended the Dzerzhinsky Higher School of the KGB in Moscow and whose father was a former KGB officer.
Rick Santorum falls apart during CNN defense of Trump as fellow Republican Charlie Dent smirks
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.
Fox News judge explains why he would “certainly” vote to impeach President Trump
Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano declared Wednesday that he would "certainly" vote to impeach President Donald Trump if he was a member of Congress.
During an appearance on "America's Newsroom," Napolitano asserted his belief that "the Democrats have credibly argued that [Trump] committed impeachable offenses" in the Ukraine scandal.
"The easiest one — because this existed in Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton — is obstruction of Congress," he said. "So — by directing his subordinates to refuse to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas, whether it's for testimony or for documents — that's an impeachable offense."
