Sanders could ask Harry Reid for removal of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair: report

Published

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may seek the removal of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) as the head of the Democratic National Committee this week in a meeting with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Yahoo News reported, citing aides who are helping set up the meeting.

“We’ve been in listening mode for the most part,” the aide said. “[Reid is] going to be hearing what Bernie’s ideas are for bringing the party together and hoping he comes with some ideas.”

On Tuesday, the Vermont legislator said he would continue to campaign for the party’s presidential nomination despite losing primaries in California, New Jersey, and South Dakota to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Sanders will reportedly meet with Reid on Thursday, the same day he is expected to meet with President Barack Obama, amid calls for him to end his campaign.

Tensions between Sanders and Wasserman Schultz rose last month, when he not only criticized her following a clash at the party’s Nevada convention, but endorsed Tim Canova, who is challenging her for her congressional seat.

The aide said Reid would be “open to hearing [Sanders] out” regarding replacing Wasserman Schultz.

But as the Hattiesburg American points out, it was Marx's response that set Twitter on fire.

Published

In a landmark action, Twitter has for the first time attached independent fact-checking information directly to two tweets from President Donald Trump. The president’s tweets make false claims alleging that wider use of mail in ballots will result in an increase in voter fraud.

This is far from the first time Trump has posted falsehoods on Twitter. But it is the first time the social media company has taken action against his account.

‘I’m entitled’: Kayleigh McEnany defends her 11 mail-in votes while calling it ‘fraud’ for the masses

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday faced questions from Fox News about why she had voted by mail 11 times even though President Donald Trump has called absentee ballots a "scam."

McEnany was asked about her voting history after the Tampa Bay Times reported that she had used mail-in voting nearly a dozen times in recent years.

"So why is it OK for you to do it?" Fox News host Ed Henry asked McEnany. "I understand you are traveling, you're in a different city. But how can you really be assured that your votes were counted accurately but when other people do it, it's fraud."
