Internet shames Palin for Julian Assange apology: She ‘can collude with Russia from her house’

Published

on

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who once equated Julian Assange to Osama bin Laden and Taliban leaders, apologized to the WikiLeaks founder in a Facebook post Tuesday, urging her supporters to watch the whistleblower biopic “Snowden.”

“The Left having been oh-so-guilty of atrocious actions and attitudes of which they’ve falsely accused others,” Palin wrote after watching Fox News host Sean Hannity’s interview the WikiLeaks founder.

“The media collusion that hid what many on the Left have been supporting is shocking,” she added. “This important information that finally opened people’s eyes to democrat candidates and operatives would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange.”

“I apologize for condemning Assange when he published my infamous (and proven noncontroversial, relatively boring) emails years ago,” she added.

The move was a complete 180 degrees from Palin’s former position on the WikiLeaks founder; the former Alaska governor once calling Assange “an anti-American operative with blood on his hands.”

Noting the marked reversal, the internet immediately criticized Palin for her lack of conviction regarding the transparency organization and it’s founder, with one user joking the apology shows Palin can now “collude with Russia from her house.”

GOP officials admit 2020 platform is basically whatever’s on Trump’s Twitter account

Published

on

President Donald Trump has shaped the Republican Party into his own image in less than four years on the job, and that doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon.

Nearly half of the House Republicans on the job when Trump took office in 2017 have either retired, resigned, been defeated or are retiring in 2020, and many of the GOP newcomers are devoted Trump loyalists, reported Politico.

“Whether the president wins or loses, his policy views and style have firmly taken over the Republican Party — nationalism and white grievance, those kinds of things,” said Matt Moore, former chairman of South Carolina's GOP. “I don’t think that Trumpy politics will be leaving the stage anytime soon.”

Published

The Trump administration on Tuesday forced all hospitals and states to make a significant and immediate change in how they report coronavirus patient data, hijacking the information to be funneled into the Dept. of Health and Human Services.
