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.
Ex-Trump adviser launches attack on Roger Stone’s jury forewoman — then dares her to sue him
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "Weekends," former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg went off on a rant attacking the jury forewoman in Roger Stone's trial, accusing her of being a liar and daring her to sue him.
"That trial, I had problems with it," said Nunberg. "Amy Berman Jackson, the judge, said things at the Manafort trial that made her completely conflicted to do this trial. There was an issue with the foreman. It came out she lied ... that's what Roger is appealing."
"So, Sam, you're just saying that a jury foreman and a judge were lying," said anchor Alex Witt. "Where is the proof on that?"
Trump’s ‘full-on racism’ will ‘go way uglier’ as election nears: Ex-White House official
On MSNBC Saturday, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci warned that President Donald Trump's toxicity on race relations will only worsen in the run-up to the election in November.
"You were in charge, for a brief time, but for communications from this White House, and it does seem that Trump is going there because that's where he thinks he has to go," said host Joy Reid. "92 percent of African-Americans, not surprisingly, disapprove of Donald Trump's handling of race. But even 57 percent of white Americans disapprove of his handling of race relations. There's a lot of white marchers out there, marching for Black Lives Matter. Has he miscalculated and misread white people, at least the majority of them, in this moment?"
Trump leveled in brutal Never-Trumper Republican ad accusing him of turning US into a ‘banana republic’
In an ad released by Republicans Voter Against Trump, the president was accused of turning the U.S. into a "banana republic" after he commuted the sentence of Roger Stone who was convicted of multiple felonies.
Coming just hours after the president handed Stone a get-out-of-jail-card that kept him from turning himself into jail later this month, the dissident Republican group posted their new ad to Twitter which accused Stone of "lying under to oath" to protect Trump, while also noting that Stone was looking at three years in jail.
The ad also notes that a "criminal who lies to protect Trump goes free."
