Fox News panel goes off the rails after RNC’s McEnany bizarrely claims Democrats want Russians to vote in US elections

Published

on

A Johns Hopkins professor shut down GOP spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany on Saturday, during a bizarre Fox News segment where the host joined GOP spokesperson in attempting to ignore reality.

The political operative was on Fox News opposite Prof. Wendy Osefo of Johns Hopkins.

The segment went off the rails when McEnany, the national spokesperson for the Republican National Committee, claimed “for a party that says they care so much about foreign influence in our election, they don’t seem to care about illegal immigrants, non-citizens, voting.”

McEnany then attempted to argue the Democrats want to allow hundreds of thousands of Russians to invade America and vote in federal elections, presumably for Donald Trump.

“What would you do, Wendy, if Vladimir Putin decides to send over a few hundred thousands to vote in our federal elections?” McEnany asked. “According to the left, that’s exactly what you want.”

“You can’t tell me what I want, Kayleigh, because you don’t know anything,” Dr. Osefo replied.

“You should know your history,” Osefo lectured RNC spokesperson. “Until 1926, immigrants and non-citizens were able to vote in not only local elections, but also federal elections.”

“There is one word I didn’t hear you say one time and that is ‘citizens.’ Citizenship used to matter in this country and apparently it doesn’t anymore, Kayleigh,” Fox News personality Pete Hegseth incorrectly claimed while completely ignoring what Dr. Osefo had just said.

As McEnany continued, Dr. Osefo could be heard sarcastically repeating, “this is a no spin zone.”

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.

Tlaib began her remarks by alluding to the president's attack.

"I’m not going nowhere, not until I impeach this president," she shouted.

Watch the video below from the NAACP.

Why this 2017 German magazine’s cover painting of Trump as a Nazi is getting so much attention now

Published

on

Just months after Donald Trump was sworn in as President, a drawing of the nascent American president was featured on the cover of a top German magazine. Trump was painted as draped in the American flag, and giving a Nazi salute. That chilling August 2017 edition of the German weekly magazine, Stern, received tremendous international attention.

"His fight! Neo-Nazis, KU-Klux Klan, racism: How Donald Trump is protecting hate in America," is a Facebook-generated translation of the cover story's title.
