Vice presidential contenders Kaine, Pence blast Trump, Clinton at debate

Published

on

Democrat Tim Kaine and Republican Mike Pence quickly launched attacks on presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday at a debate between the two vice presidential contenders.

The two candidates wasted no time in launching broadsides against Republican Trump and Democrat Clinton in the opening minutes of their 90-minute debate at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia.

“Donald Trump always puts himself first,” Kaine, a U.S. senator from Virginia, said, pointing out that when Trump began his presidential campaign last year he called “Mexicans rapists and criminals” and had also voiced the “outrageous lie” that Democratic President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.

Pence, the governor of Indiana, shot back at Kaine that he and Clinton “would know a lot about an insult-driven campaign” and then accused Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state, of bungling foreign policy with large sections of the Middle East “literally spinning out of control.”

The debate was the only one featuring the vice presidential contenders and came as Clinton has edged ahead of Trump in national opinion polls and in some Nov. 8 battleground states where the election is likely to be decided.

John Oliver unleashes epic supercut of Fox News host who can’t stop bragging about learning German in high school

Fox News host Brian Kilmeade took German as his foreign language in high school. If you didn't know that, then you likely don't watch Fox News, because the host has made a claim several dozen times.

HBO host John Oliver spent a few moments out of his Sunday episode of "Last Week Tonight" to mock Kilmeade for his desire to remind people of his three years of classes frequently.

Kilmeade has talked about it so many times that his co-hosts began preempting his comment every time the country of Germany is mentioned, or the German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears on the screen.

Watch the hilarious mockery below:

Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats

Published

on

One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.

According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."

Donald Trump Tampa rally

An MSNBC panel speculated that one of the things President Donald Trump will do when he announces his reelection campaign this week is run a rerun of 2016. The reason, the panel explained, is he thinks it's the one thing that has worked for him.

Sunday, it was announced that Trump was so furious with his lousy poll numbers that he fired the team of pollsters. Trump apologists claimed that the anger had more to do with the leak of the poll numbers to the public.

Either way, Trump is in trouble, whether he's willing to admit it or not. But his solution is characteristically "Trump."
