‘The American dream is dead!’: Watch Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘all-purpose’ Trump commencement speech

Published

on

On Saturday, President Donald Trump spoke to the graduating class at Liberty University, where he railed against his critics and the media and told the assembled audience, “In America, we don’t worship government. We worship God.”

He then played a compilation of some of Trump’s statements including good advice like, “If someone screws you, screw them back in spades,” “The American dream is dead,” and — from a Liberty University speech — “Always have a prenuptial agreement, but you don’t need that because you people never get divorced!”

The Somali-born Muslim lawmaker came to the United States as a child and eventually won a seat in Congress.

On Thursday the first-term Democratic lawmaker became the focus of a raging debate on race and American values after Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back!" at a campaign rally with the president.

Trump’s racism is ‘disqualifying’ for him to remain as president: former White House lawyer

Published

on

Former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained on MSNBC on Thursday why he viewed President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four women of color in Congress as disqualifying.

Anchor Brian Williams read a quote from Susan Glasser of The New Yorker.
