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.”

When Robert Mueller completed his long-awaited investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, he left many questions unanswered.

But one conclusion was unequivocal: Russia unleashed an extensive campaign of fake news and disinformation on social media with the aim of distorting U.S. public opinion, sowing discord and swinging the election in favor of the Republican candidate Donald Trump.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans

Published

on

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’

Published

on

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."
