‘But this is red, white and blue!’ Fox host short circuits after guest compares Trump parade to North Korea

Published

on

Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Wednesday acted incredulous when Fox military analyst Ralph Peters threw cold water on President Donald Trump’s plan to have a massive military parade featuring American weapons such as tanks and missiles.

When asked by Hemmer for his thoughts on “showing off American might down Pennsylvania Avenue” by Hemmer, Peters immediately signaled that he was not on board with the plan.

“The French march well, we fight well,” he said bluntly. “Take your pick. If we really want to honor our troops and support them, pass the defense budget.”

Peters went on to explain that he found it distasteful for Americans to be parading weapons and vehicles down the street simply to show off military strength.

“When we have military parades we do honor the troops,” he said. “It is the human element, not heavy metal war machines rolling down the streets of American cities.”

Hemmer then asked Peters what he thought about reporters and analysts saying that Trump’s parade idea is similar to the types of parades we see in Russia and North Korea — and he was taken aback when Peters said the comparisons were apt.

“They’re right,” Peters said. “The people that parade weapons are the North Koreans and the Russians.”

“This is not to parade weapons as if it’s some sort of offensive gesture!” Hemmer interjected emotionally. “This is red, white and blue!”

His findings were incredibly damning for the president and his allies, finding evidence that the campaign eagerly accepted Russian help, if not a full-blown conspiracy, and outlining ten potential episodes where Trump obstructed justice. But Mueller's conclusions are by no means the end-all of everything that happened. Mueller himself acknowledged in his report that Trump's lack of cooperation probably prevented him from finding a lot of information.

The Palestinian leadership should sign on to the US economic development plan and worry about their political status later, Hebrew University of Jerusalem Historian Gaudi Taub told FRANCE 24.

The Palestinian leadership should sign on to the US economic development plan and worry about their political status later, Hebrew University of Jerusalem Historian Gaudi Taub told FRANCE 24.

Palestinians are wrong to reject the $50 million US blueprint to rebuild the Palestinian economy, which US Presidential advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner said is a precondition to peace in the region, Taub said.

Published

The Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet on Tuesday held a hearing titled, “Optimizing for Engagement: Understanding the Use of Persuasive Technology on Internet Platforms.”

"I think these questions raise very serious -- these documents raise very serious questions about political bias at the company," Cruz said, referring to Google.

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) responded.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
