Published

on

A transgender woman in California had her privacy violated in a Denny’s by Jasmine Saavedra a self proclaimed Latina spokeswoman for President Trump.

Saavedra is a GOP candidate running for U.S. Congress 44 District.

In a Facebook video that Saavedra posted, she walked up to the bathroom and claimed that she couldn’t use the ladies room because it was occupied.

“So, that guy is violating my right to use the ladies room here, and he’s saying he’s a lady!  Stupid guy,” she said.

Entering the bathroom and filming the scene with her cell phone using a selfie-stick, Saavedra screamed at the woman occupying a stall with the door closed, telling her, “You’re invading my privacy.”

Saavedra continued harassing the transgender woman and claimed she was being put in “danger.”

“How can I be with a man inside of the ladies’ room just because he thinks he’s a lady?  This is unbelievable. Only in California this happens,” Saavedra said.

As the transgender woman walked out the bathroom Saavedra pointed the camera in her face.

“Next time use the men’s rooms or nobody’s rooms,” Saavedra said.

She encouraged her Facebook following to vote for her during the primary election being held on June 5th. She promised that she “will fight to get our right to have a ladies room.”

Meghan McCain snaps at Sunny Hostin for daring to disagree with her about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Published

Meghan McCain slammed President Donald Trump for hurling racist abuse at four Democratic congresswomen to heighten divisions in his rival party, and then framed the debate in the exact same way he has.

The conservative co-host on "The View" condemned the president's statements urging the four first-year lawmakers to return to their home countries as racist, and then complained that one of their chiefs of staff had accused moderate Democrats of turning a blind eye to racism.

"I think the politics of this is fascinating," McCain began. "We spent our entire week last week talking about how racist and xenophobic the original comments and the chants were, and I stand by that statement."

Here’s the insidious role Sean Hannity played in derailing Al Franken’s political career

Published

on

The U.S. Senate lost one of its most prominent liberals when Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, dogged by sexual harassment allegations, announced his resignation in December 2017. Some of Franken’s defenders believed the Democratic Party was too quick to throw him under the bus; other Democrats stressed that in light of the #MeToo movement, his resignation was absolutely necessary. Franken’s political downfall is the subject of an in-depth report by the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer, who describes — among many other things — the role that Fox News’ Sean Hannity played in the media firestorm.

The media got it wrong: There’s no evidence GOP support for Trump improved after his racist outburst

Published

on

One of the most popular articles last week involved claims that polls showed Republicans had increased their support of President Trump.  But a closer analysis of the data reveals that any increase in support was within the margin of error.  So the polls couldn’t conclude that GOP support for President Trump had gone up or down.

Polls are tricky creatures.  We either give them near god-like status, or discount them entirely, often depending on whether they show us what we want.

I remember the movie “Machete,” where an opportunistic Texas politician fakes his own shooting.  Within five minutes of that story breaking, the news anchor reported that the politician had drastically improved his standing in the polls.  Surveys don’t work that way.
