CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed Republican Alabama State Representative Ed Henry, whose defense of U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore on Friday resulted in him suggesting “someone should prosecute” the victims who “are guilty of allowing him to exist for 40 years.”
Between charging that his quote was taken out of context and claiming that Moore is a “victim” of politically motivated attacks, Henry accused Cooper of siding with the women who charged Moore with inappropriate sexual acts.
When Cooper explained that he’s just asking questions, Henry replied: “I would say your questions have a tone to them.”
The Alabama state representative also charged “the left” with “hate mongering,” adding what shocks him is they “[seem] to be all ‘flower child, oh we love peace and everybody’,” but when people “say something they don’t like they’re willing to kill you and that’s scary.”
“My grandfather used to have a nice quick quip about a frog and if he has wings,” Henry offered. “But here’s the thing, frog doesn’t have wings and for you to comment on it makes you as foolish as the question.”
John Oliver perfectly explained the Mueller report in a way all Americans can understand
The overwhelming majority of Americans have not read the 400-plus-page report from special counsel Robert Mueller. As it stands, it's unclear how many elected officials have either. It's become a problem for Democrats, who would like to impeach the president but can't get the American people to pay attention long enough.
"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver has a solution. In his Sunday show, Oliver outlined a vital piece of the report that outlined just one of many obstructions of justice at the hand of President Donald Trump.
After he outlined what impeachment is, he showed Trump talking about the law that claims it's for "high crimes and misdemeanors." According to Trump, he has to be accused of both because it says "and." An annoyed Oliver corrected the president's incorrect assessment.
John Oliver unleashes epic supercut of Fox News host who can’t stop bragging about learning German in high school
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade took German as his foreign language in high school. If you didn't know that, then you likely don't watch Fox News, because the host has made a claim several dozen times.
HBO host John Oliver spent a few moments out of his Sunday episode of "Last Week Tonight" to mock Kilmeade for his desire to remind people of his three years of classes frequently.
Kilmeade has talked about it so many times that his co-hosts began preempting his comment every time the country of Germany is mentioned, or the German Chancellor Angela Merkel appears on the screen.
Watch the hilarious mockery below:
Trump thinks he can create his own healthcare law that will take the issue off the table for Democrats
One of the significant issues Republicans lost on in 2018 was their nearly decade-long crusade to unmake the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
This week Trump will announce that he's running for president again, and he promises a surprise announcement while there. While it's unclear what he intends for the surprise, one thing he is talking about is a better healthcare law than the Democratic one.
According to The New York Times, Trump is "vowing to issue the plan within a month or two, reviving a campaign promise with broad consequences for next year’s contest."
