WATCH: CNN interview on Black Lives Matter spins out of control as conservative sheriff berates host

Published

on

CNN anchor Don Lemon seemed to have a difficult time interviewing Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a frequent critic of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Lemon started the interview off by saying the police in Baton Rouge had a message of peace and asking Clarke for his sentiment.

“Their message is peace and coming together in the country,” Lemon said. “What’s your  message?”

Clarke sniffed at his question.

“You don’t believe that for one minute, do you,” he said. “Any protests over the deaths of these cops today in Baton Rouge? Any riots or protests over the deaths of the police officers in Dallas, Texas?”

Clarke then blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for the recent spate of cop killings in Dallas and Louisiana, growing agitated until Lemon had to ask him to “keep it civil.”

Clarke continued to rail about the movement until Lemon cut him off to take a commercial break, saying, “Are you gonna let me talk?”

When they returned, Clarke said, “First of all, this whole anti-police rhetoric is based on a lie. There is no data and no research that proves any of that nonsense. None.”

Lemon then told him to be specific about what he was talking about. Clarke then said everyone from President Barack Obama to the Washington Post were lying about data that shows black people are statistically treated more harshly by law enforcement than white people, which Lemon countered.

Clarke then tried to turn the conversation to “black-on-black crime,” but Lemon pointed out that’s a different conversation and tried to get the interview back on track.

Published

on

On Tuesday, acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan withdrew his nomination as new details came to life about a violent series of domestic disputes within his family, including an incident in which he defended his son for assaulting his wife with a baseball bat.

Former White House official David Gergen scorned the idea that the White House and Senate Republicans were not aware of this information, noting that Shanahan was already confirmed to a high-ranking office in the Pentagon and would have already undergone a rigorous FBI background check.

Nancy Pelosi says White House attempt to block Hope Hicks testimony is ‘obstruction of justice’

Published

Nancy Pelosi clap

President Donald Trump's White House is committing obstruction of justice by claiming Hope Hicks has "immunity" from testifying before Congress about her time in the administration and even transition.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was asked about the administration's contention by CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju.

Pelosi replied that it was, "obstruction of justice."

The answer could be important as Congressional precedence says that obstruction of justice is a high crime or misdemeanor worthy of impeachment.

Ocasio-Cortez dunks on Liz Cheney again for using Nazi language to defend Trump: ‘Enjoy defending concentration camps’

Published

on

Dick Cheney's daughter continued to receive ferocious backlash after she falsely claimed that Donald Trump's tent cities are not "concentration camps."

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) demanded Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) learn history -- while revealing she knew little -- during a Twitter outburst.

“The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are. … ‘Never Again’ means something ... we need to do something about it," Ocasio-Cortez noted.
