GOP candidate goes ballistic over racism charges: ‘I don’t give a sh*t’ because ‘my son is named after a black man’

Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA)

U.S. Rep. Scott Taylor, who is vying for reelection in Virginia, had some choice words for Republican senate candidate Corey Stewart this week, but refused to condemned Stewart for the racism, bigotry and anti-Semitism that he is associated with.

While speaking at a campaign rally in Virginia Beach over the weekend, Democratic congressional candidate Elaine Luria argued that Virginians “are better than this,” according to the The Virignia-Pilot.

“We are better than ripping infants from their mother’s breast at the border and placing them in a detention center. We are better than the bigotry, and the racism and the anti-Semitism that we saw on the streets of Charlottesville last year,” she explained.

Luria said that Taylor should “reject the fact that Corey Stewart stands next to racists and anti-Semites.”

When the paper caught up with Taylor, he appeared to be enraged by Luria’s remarks.

“I don’t give a s— about Corey Stewart,” Taylor ranted. “No one else does either except for Democrats who are trying to target me. … No one cares, except for a small teeny amount of people you met at the cupcake place.”

“What are they trying to say? That Scott Taylor likes Corey Stewart so therefore he’s a racist?” he continued. “Do you think that’s going to play here? My son is named after a black guy. I’m a military guy. We don’t give a s— about where you come from. Black, white, brown, gay, straight. I don’t care.”

Taylor, who has a 5-year-old son named Sterling, did not say which black man he was named after.

‘We followed the president’s orders’: Sondland leaves no wiggle room for Trump’s direct involvement in Ukraine scandal

Published

on

European Union ambassador Gordon Sondland will leave no wiggle room for President Donald Trump to deny his direct involvement in the Ukraine scandal in his bombshell opening statement.

As reported by the Daily Beast, Sondland will testify that he followed President Donald Trump's orders to work with personal attorney Rudy Giuliani on dealing with Ukraine, despite the fact that he was personally reluctant to do so.

"Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States," the statement says. "We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders."

Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’

Published

on

Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.

But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.

In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.
