Published

With rumors once again swirling that there’s a video of President Donald Trump using the N-word, Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak trotted out what appeared to be a trial balloon for defending the president.

“Hip-hop music, n-word literally every 2 seconds,” Pollak complained. “I don’t like it but this is just what the cool people listen to I guess. Maybe we’re overdue for a real national conversation about the word and its public use.”

‘I’m entitled’: Kayleigh McEnany defends her 11 mail-in votes while calling it ‘fraud’ for the masses

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday faced questions from Fox News about why she had voted by mail 11 times even though President Donald Trump has called absentee ballots a "scam."

McEnany was asked about her voting history after the Tampa Bay Times reported that she had used mail-in voting nearly a dozen times in recent years.

"So why is it OK for you to do it?" Fox News host Ed Henry asked McEnany. "I understand you are traveling, you're in a different city. But how can you really be assured that your votes were counted accurately but when other people do it, it's fraud."
