Mike Pence to receive ‘Working for Women’ award from Kellyanne Conway’s conservative women’s group

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence will be awarded the “Working for Women” honor from the Independent Women’s Forum Wednesday despite years of working to hurt women.

According to a release sent to New York Magazine, “the award recognizes an individual who values free markets, works to create a more dynamic and innovative work world, and celebrates the valuable contributions women make to society,” Jezebel reported Sunday.

Pence was the real extremist on the ticket with a long list of victims. After fighting to take down Planned Parenthood in Congress for Indiana, he became governor and took it to a state level.

Pence led the GOP’s efforts to destroy Planned Parenthood with six pieces of legislation in just six years. He went so far as to threaten to shut down the government if Planned Parenthood continued to be funded. He not only cut needle exchange programs to provide clean needles to addicts, he then worked to shut down clinics where people could get free HIV/AIDS testing. The result was an HIV outbreak, which he ignored for two months before being forced to act.

Pence is scoring the award because Kellyanne Conway is on the organization’s board. Jezebel notes the irony of a group that celebrates “personal liberty” while awarding a man who opposes the personal liberty of women.

Having let Johnson throw out several scenarios and try and spread the blame around, Todd, finally cut in to say, "You seem to blame this on everybody but the president. It was the president’s actions."

"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”

GOP lawmaker goes on extended rant about Schiff to duck Tapper questions about Trump intimidating witnesses

Published

on

On Sunday morning House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) attempted to blow off questions by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether President Donald Trump was trying to intimidate former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch with a tweet during her testimony, choosing instead to attack committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for wanting to impeach the president.

Following a long interview where the State of the Union host had to correct the Ohio Republican's assertions multiple times -- with Tapper once flatly stating "That's not true" -- the CNN host asked about Trump's tweets that were immediately characterized as witness intimidation.
