Trump tells Fox host black Americans have ‘no education, no anything’ — so they should vote for him

Published

on

In an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that American blacks have “no health care, no education, no anything” and that their lives are “a total catastrophe.”

Think Progress reported Saturday night on the interview, in which the candidate attempted to expand upon his remarks to an all-white crowd on Friday in which he said that after four years in the White House, he’s win 95 percent of the African-American vote. Commentators on TV and the Internet found that assertion risible.

Trump appeared on Pirro’s show via telephone. On Friday, he visited the flood-ravaged state of Louisiana where residents criticized him for staging a “photo op” in the middle of a widespread natural disaster.

For black Americans, Trump said, “It’s just, like, a total catastrophe, the unemployment rates, everything is bad — no health care, no education, no anything, no anything. And poverty is unbelievable. Then, I said, ‘Hey, wait a minute, vote for me. What have you got to lose? You can’t do worse, you can’t do any worse than what these people have been doing and I will do better.'”

"I'm wondering if Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be President?" said Matthews. "Maybe that's too exciting a question to raise. Do they want Bernie to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? Maybe they'd rather wait 4 years and put in a Democrat that they like."

‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ co-host says Democrats and the media are ‘the agents of Russia’ — not Trump

Published

on

"Fox & Friends Weekend" co-host Pete Hegseth falsely claimed Friday that the media and Democrats are agents of Russia, because they are allegedly attempting to delegitimize President Donald Trump.

"Every single media member in that clip, every single Democrat that parrots what they are saying — they're working together. They are the agents of Russia," Hegseth told "Fox & Friends."

His comments came after the president's favorite morning show aired a montage of media outlets and Democrats discussing a recent report that Russia was trying to help Trump get re-elected.

"This is what Russia wants," Hegseth said. "They want to sow discord, and misinformation and delegitimize our republic — destabilize it — because they are not our friends. And they know that when we're strong, they are in a worse position."

Gov. Roy Cooper made the offer after a unique situation arose.

The Toronto Maple Leafs were scheduled to play Carolina Hurricanes in hockey, but both of the Marlies' goalies were out with injuries.

So 42-year-old Zamboni drive David Ayres suited up, becoming the second-oldest player to ever make their NHL debut.
