Trump adviser AJ Delgado loses her mind when GOP strategist calls out white supremacist supporters

Published

While appearing as a guest on “All In with Chris Hayes,” to discuss Donald Trump’s latest comments about African-Americans, Trump adviser AJ Delgado lost her mind after Hayes claimed that most Trump supporters are racists.

She began by saying that she was offended by Hayes’ accusation that Trump supporters had ties to white supremacists.

“I just want to distinguish between two claims,” Hayes began. “If you’re a Trump supporter you’re there for a racist or white supremacist which I would never say and don’t think Rick would say. The people out there that are racist and white supremacist, they’re overwhelmingly and publicly supporting Donald Trump.”

“That’s not true!” Delgado shouted.

“AJ, it is true. The people on the white supremacists alt-right movement in this country flock to Donald Trump,” Republican strategist Rick Wilson shot back.

The two then began shouting at each other and talking over each other.

Delgado claimed that people don’t care about this issue anyway and don’t want to see two people arguing on TV about who has two white supremacist Twitter followers.

Wilson said that Trump should decry and denounce those like David Duke and others while also stop appealing to people like them with his dog whistle politics.

Delgado maintained that average voters don’t care about these things, though the average person of color has indicated that they do.

“This is a guy who is feeding these people with a nod and a wink every single day,” Wilson shouted back. “A guy who constantly denigrates women, Muslims, minorities in a host of different ways. I’m not saying every person who supports Donald Trump is a racist, that’s absurd. Every racist you turn over — every time you turn over a rock and find a racist, they have a red MAGA hat on. There is not a — there’s not a coincidence here.”

Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines

Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.

"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.

More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.

At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.

In a progressive welcoming move, Chief Justice John Roberts issued his New Year's Eve annual report urging his fellow federal judges to stand up for democracy.

"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."

Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why

Published

on

According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.

As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
