Arizona GOP candidate melts down and accuses newspaper of printing ‘fake news’ after they endorse her Republican rival

Published

on

A contender for the GOP nomination to fill an open U.S. Senate seat representing Arizona had a full-fledged freak-out after one of the state’s leading newspapers endorsed one of her Republican rivals.

She then accused the paper of publishing “fake news.”

According to AzCentral, former Arizona State Senator Dr. Kelli Ward is making her second run for a US Senate seat and became enraged when the Arizona Republic endorsed Rep. Martha McSally instead.

With McSally leading the primary field — which also includes former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — Ward had hoped for an endorsement to boost her flagging campaign.

When the Republic endorsed her rival, Ward took to Twitter and lashed out in all directions, including attacking mainstream Republicans and the reporters who have followed her campaign.

[email protected] & @yvonnewingett claim to be “journalists” but their agenda is clear: Push for open borders & amnesty. Won’t work this time. Voters won’t be duped by @azcentral into voting for @MarthaMcSally like with @SenJohnMcCain & @JeffFlake. #MarthaMcAmnesty #AZSEN,” she tweed before adding, “The #FakeNews media balks at the notion that they’re the enemy of the people all while continuing to oppose the #AmericaFirst agenda.”

From there she continued her Twitter outrage-fest, defending President Donald Trump who, notably, has not endorsed her or even Arpaio — the recipient of a presidential pardon just months ago.

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

REVEALED: The government just ‘dramatically’ expanded its investigation of Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
