On the one-year anniversary of the first Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen unleashed his interview with former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
“Why should the president pick a side between anti-fascists and fascists?” Cohen asks, dressed in his Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr. disguise. “He’s the president of all people?”
Lewandowski gives a noncommital perspective of a “place and time to disagree with people everywhere,” in his answer.
“You have to respect them [though], you can’t be attacking them,” Lewandowski says of the white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
In wake of Charlottesville, Trump said that there were “very fine people on both sides” of the protests.
“Honest, fascist people just want to express their right to start a genocide. That is their right!” exclaimed Cohen as Ruddick for Sunday’s episode of “Who is America?”
Ruddick then asked why Trump would move into a “black man’s house,” referring to the White House, where President Barack Obama once lived.
Lewandowski explained it wasn’t Obama’s house it is the “people’s house.”
Ruddick brought out a conspiracy theory about PBS being owned by the Rastafarian lobby by adjusting the logo to look like the person in the logo is smoking marijuana.
With a flag pin securly in place, Lewandowski explained that Trump respects women and “the American people are so smart” not to believe the fake news media.
Cohen made a lot of absurd statements, but Lewandowski never got away from his talking points.
‘This is going to be a blowout’: Morning Joe throws devastating new Fox News polls in Trump’s face
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough kicked off Friday morning by listing off a collection of new polls that shows Donald Trump is headed to defeat in November, adding that the presidential election is looking like it will be a blowout favoring Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
Speaking with "Morning Joe" co-host Willy Geist, Scarborough appeared almost giddy as he read off the latest numbers showing the president still has not turned his floundering campaign around.
"Joe Biden has pulled ahead in Wisconsin in some polls 7, 8 points," Scarborough began. "So the states everybody has been talking about, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and really Ohio wasn't a part of this. Ohio and Iowa comfortably fell in Donald Trump's campaign, but all five of those states across the upper Midwest have obviously been part of the heartland battle."
‘Trump will use every tool to cheat’: Dems prepare for Trump refusing to leave the White House
Democrats say they are taking President Donald Trump's refusal to guarantee a peaceful transition of power very seriously.
In interviews with Politico, Democratic operatives and politicians say they are preparing legal and political strategies to stop the president from trying to steal the 2020 election even if vote counts show that he's been decisively defeated.
Experts: Lawsuit heading to Supreme Court would lead to ‘massive’ transfer of wealth from middle-class to richest Americans
The Republican lawsuit that seeks to strike down the Affordable Care Act would save the richest one-tenth of 1 percent of Americans an average of $198,000 per year, according to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
The case, which was initiated by 18 state attorneys general and backed by the Trump administration, is scheduled to be heard by the Supreme Court a week after the November election. A Texas judge ruled in 2018 that the entire Obamacare law was unconstitutional, after the Republican-led Congress eliminated the individual mandate penalty in its 2017 tax bill and an appeals court then sent the case back for the judge to decide whether the entire law needed to be struck down.
