Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) this week tweeted out a photo of herself standing next to the Fearless Girl statue in New York with the caption, “Fight like a girl.”

Apparently, however, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin thinks that she coined this particular phrase when she started using it back in 2011 during Tea Party rally speeches, and she tells Breitbart News that she doesn’t appreciate Warren using it without giving her credit.

“Coming from liberals who urge women to claim victimization, ‘Fight like a girl’ just doesn’t sound the same as when legit fighters for equality say it, mean it, live it, and will never give it up,” she said.

Palin, a half-term governor who was John McCain’s vice presidential nominee in 2008, infamously gave up her job in 2009 to focus on becoming a reality TV host.

Warren told NPR earlier this week that she was inspired to use the phrase “fight like a girl” after seeing a young woman holding a sign with that phrase during the women’s march in Boston this year.

Experts on international conflict resolution are warning that the United States is on the verge of seeing a wave of sectarian violence unleashed by the 2020 presidential election.

In interviews with NPR, several experts said the United States is exhibiting troubling signs that other countries that have been plagued by sectarian violence have shown in recent decades.

"We thought we were immune to it," said Tim Phillips, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Beyond Conflict. "When we looked at our own problems, we thought: 'Of course we have some big issues, but we're in a sense immune from an us-versus-them mindset, a sectarian mindset, where there could be real conflict.'"

Trump’s massive rallies amid COVID-19 pandemic are flopping in key battleground states

Published

It is no secret President Donald Trump loves to bask in MAGA glory at his rallies, but a new survey shows his campaign blitz may be backfiring as voters wonder if the president bears responsibility for hosting potential super-spreader events while COVID-19 batters the Midwestern United States.

A new survey, compiled of voters in six battleground states—Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—found that a great number of voters view Trump "much less" or "somewhat less favorably" due to his continued behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic, reports US News. Despite alarming upticks in cases across the Midwest, Trump has continued to visit vulnerable states and hold massive rallies all while disregarding COVID-19 mitigation practices.
