Conservative Tomi Lahren was flattened Friday night going up against Bill Maher’s panel of political experts.
Lahren claimed that it wouldn’t matter to her if Donald Trump was black, had three wives and grabbed women like Trump claimed he did. Michael Eric Dyson said that in the hypothetical scenario with “black Trump,” it wouldn’t matter because he would be in jail.
Maher read off a statistic that 32 percent of Americans think that discrimination against whites is as bad as discrimination against blacks. Lahren tried to pivot to talking about UC Berkeley’s protests but Maher asked her the question again. She confessed that she does think that it is as bad.
“Since I’m a conservative and not a Trump person, let me say this,” Wilson began. “That’s absurd. That’s f*cking crazy”
Lahren also defended Congress for rescinding President Barack Obama’s executive order making it illegal to dump pollutants in waterways because it means coal miners can have jobs again.
“Why do they have to cling to the worst jobs ever?” Maher asked her. Lahren said that it was all they know, but Maher asked why they couldn’t retrain coal miners and give them jobs that won’t kill them.
“He doesn’t know any coal miners!” former senate candidate Jason Kander cut in. “He knows CEOs of coal companies!”
She argued that Trump knows them because they voted for him en masse. But Kander said Trump doesn’t actually “know” them.
“There’s a kind of hazy nostalgia with Trump’s plan, ‘We’re going to have ironworks and shipyards and coal miners,'” Rick Wilson said. “These are things — we might as well get our buggy-whip industry back together again. It’s this retrospective, fake past that doesn’t exist anymore. And, God bless them, they work their asses off, and you know what, natural gas took their jobs, not Barack Obama.”

New testimony adds 2 stunning — and previously unknown — details about the Ukraine extortion
New testimony released Monday from the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the Ukraine scandal included at least two new stunning details about the quid pro quo scheme at the heart of the matter.
Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.
Trump blasted for his ‘Endorsement of Doom’ after Sean Spicer loses on ‘Dancing with the Stars’
Team Trump had gone all in urging supporters to vote for former White House press secretary Sean Spicer on the game show "Dancing with the Stars."
Votes had been urged by RNC officials and Trump himself had urged his 66 million Twitter followers to vote for Spicer.
Despite the full heft of the Trump campaign, Spicer lost on Monday's show.
Trump deleted his failed tweet urging votes for Spicer -- and instead said it was a "great try" by his former advisor.
Looks like this endorsement was as successful as your last one!
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
