Charles Barkley warns Alabamans have been ‘brainwashed’ to support Roy Moore ahead of rally for Doug Jones

Published

on

Basketball legend Charles Barkley is campaigning for Doug Jones, Roy Moore’s Democratic challenger for Alabama’s open Senate seat — and he thinks Alabamans have been duped into supporting the twice-fired former chief justice.

In an interview with AL.com, Barkley said Alabama voters have been “brainwashed” into supporting the controversial GOP candidate.

“All you have to do is talk about God and say you don’t like homosexuals … and abortion,” Barkley, who claims to identify as neither a Democrat or Republican, said.

Barkley said it’s “unbelievable” that Moore has gotten so far amid allegations from several women that Moore had or pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and he in his 30’s.

“You couldn’t make it up. If somebody sent you a script, with all he’s done and said, you wouldn’t believe he could still be in the race,” the NBA hall-of-famer and Auburn alum said. “To me it’s silliness that this guy’s trying to win.”

“I don’t want this guy representing my state,” Barkley, an Alabama native, concluded.

Trump White House hammered for covering up their own economic projections as jobs vanish

Published

on

The Trump White House has decided against releasing midyear economic projections this summer, breaking precedent at a time when unemployment is expected to top 20 percent.

The Washington Post reports that the administration is not releasing updated economic projections that "would almost certainly codify an administration assessment that the coronavirus pandemic has led to a severe economic downturn" with massive job losses that have topped 36 million in just two months.

Joe Scarborough can sue for defamation — and ‘it could require Mr. Trump to pay substantial punitive damages’: Legal expert

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough may have a defamation case against President Donald Trump, according to one legal expert.

Peter Schuck, an emeritus professor of law at Yale and visiting professor at the University of California, Berkeley, laid out the case against the president in a new column for the New York Times.

"Trump’s wantonly cruel tweets about the tragic death in 2001 of Lori Klausutis are distinctive," Schuck writes. "They may constitute intentional torts for which a civil jury could award punitive damages against him."
