A discussion on why some Republican women voters are sticking with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump turned into a shouting match when Trump advocate Kayleigh McEnany attempted to pin the blame for former President Bill Clinton’s affairs on Hillary Clinton.
Appearing on Erin Burnett’s OutFront, CNN regular Angela Rye began talking about Trump’s video comments — where he admitted that he has sexually abused women — by describing how the law specifically defines sexual assault.
“One of the things I wanted to do was read quickly just what the definition of sexual assault is because he denied any type of sexual assault when Anderson asked him about it at the debate last night, ” Rye began. “‘Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forceful sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling and attempted rape.’ If you’re grabbing people in their private areas, that is fondling, that is sexual assault.”
“Just so ironic,” McEnany parried. “The selective outrage that the left is okay with Hillary Clinton who put private investigators on people who had viable sexual assault claims, it’s selective outrage.”
“No, it’s not!” Rye shot back.
Turning back to McEnany attempting to pin the sins of Bill Clinton on the Democratic presidential nominee, Rye stated, “That’s rape culture. Kayleigh! You’re blaming someone who succumbed to someone committing adultery on her. We’re Christians. Let’s talk about what that is!”
As McEnany talked over Rye by shouting, “She was accused of facilitating it last night and she was definitely silent,” a frustrated Rye finally had enough, yelling back, “Kayleigh, you’re wrong! You know why. It’s f’ing ridiculous, dude! It’s so ridiculous.”

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
