‘F*cking crazy’: Rick Wilson slams Tomi Lahren for claim whites are discriminated as much as blacks

Published

on

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.”

Republican Marsha Blackburn shuts down applause as 9/11 bill vote unfolds in the Senate

Published

on

The funding for 9/11 first responders has officially passed the Senate after public outcry and significant lobbying by firefighters, police and others who worked after the Twin Tower attacks. But it was the emotional testimony from comedian Jon Stewart that drew much-needed publicity to the cause.

But as the bill was coming up for a vote, with the assurance it would pass, the gallery erupted with applause, with some senators joining in. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) shut it down quickly.

"Expression of approval is not permitted in the gallery," Blackburn shouted, while banging her gavel. She proceeded to bang her gavel at least 25 times more and repeated again that any expression of approval was not permitted.
