‘Never again’: Scott Baio steals anti-Holocaust slogan to attack Nordstrom for dropping Ivanka Trump

Published

on

Conservative actor Scott Baio appropriated a slogan used by Jews in Nazi concentration camps to lash out at the Nordstrom department store chain for dropping Ivanka Trump’s line of products.

In a tweet over the weekend, Baio shared a copy of his wife’s Nordstrom rewards summary, which indicated that the couple had spent $30,062.16 at the retailer in 2016.

“NEVER AGAIN!” Baio wrote, referencing the Twitter handles of Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Renee Baio.

The “never again” slogan was used by Jewish resistance fighters in the Nazi Warsaw Ghetto and was later adopted as the official motto of the Jewish Defense League (JDL).

According to Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, the words became “more than a slogan” following the war.

“It’s a prayer, a promise, a vow,” Wiesel wrote. “There will never again be hatred, people say. Never again jail and torture. Never again the suffering of innocent people, or the shooting of starving, frightened, terrified children. And never again the glorification of base, ugly, dark violence. It’s a prayer.”

A day after Baio posted the “never again” tweet, he shared a photo of himself with his arms around a rabbi at an Orthodox Bar Mitzvah.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was attacked by a former Republican colleague who alleged McCarthy and his fellow members of Congress have allowed the House GOP to become the official shill for the White House.

In a profile for the New York Times, former Oversight Committee Chairman Tom Davis (R-VA) shamed the GOP House for the way that a once-respectable institution has fallen.

“Congress no longer operates as an independent branch of government, but as an appendage of the executive branch,” said Davis. “He is made for that role.”

Former senator reveals to Maddow how one brave Democrat can reveal key document in impeachment trial

Published

on

Near the end of Wednesday's impeachment trial, Chief Justice John Roberts announced that an agreement had been made to allow senators to read supplemental testimony from Vice President Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams.

The document will remain classified, despite claims that there is no classified material in the document, only evidence that is damning to the president.

"In terms of this document potentially being improperly classified, which is something that has been raised in writing by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and raised on the floor of the Senate tonight by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)," MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow noted. "Obviously, it was the vice president's office that said it was classified, they are getting publicly criticized for that. If it has been improperly classified and it should be something that the public can see, who adjudicates that?"

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

on

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
