This reporter mocked Trump supporters as toothless ‘garbage people’ – and now conservatives are freaking out

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday featured an angry mob lashing out at the press. When a Politico reporter derided those lashing out at the press, conservatives lashed out online in offense.

From the media area, CNN’s Jim Acosta posted a video of the “sad scene we faced at the Trump rally in Tampa.”

The video features a man in a “f*ck the media” T-shirt and three different people giving the middle finger.

Acosta said, “I’m very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.”

Veteran Florida politico reporter Marc Caputo retweeted Acosta’s video, adding, “if you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”

Breitbart News’ Joel Pollak claimed that Caputo’s tweet was, “why Americans hate the news media.”

At first, Caputo mocked those who took outrage over his comments on the oral hygiene of Trump’s Florida supporters.

Caputo mocked one critic by saying, “snowflake has a sad.”

In another deleted tweet, Caputo wrote, “Oh, no! I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off.”

“Someone fetch a fainting couch,” he joked.

On Wednesday morning, Caputo apologized.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) predicted on Friday that President Donald Trump "will get worse" because of the lack of impeachment proceedings.

Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, was interviewed on MSNBC by Chris Hayes.

"I want to switch gears on the last question here, just to talk about what’s happened over the last several days with the president’s attacks on your colleagues, the chants of 'Send her Back,' which the president sort of very, very tepidly and meekly sort of disavowed yesterday, but then essentially reavowed today when given an opportunity to talk about it, he sort of reembraced his supporters who were chanting that," Hayes noted.

Here’s why President Trump’s explicit racism is an impeachable offense

Published

on

Without even waiting for former special counsel Robert Mueller to testify about President Donald Trump's obstruction of justice, Democrats are legally justified in acting now to impeach the president for his explicit racism, a civil rights activist argued on Friday.

Journalist and author Shaun King laid out his argument in a column published by The Intercept.

To make his argument, King explained the difference between implicit and explicit racism.

"Across the country, corporations and government agencies, including police departments, are offering a wave of what’s called 'implicit bias training.' The fundamental theory is that, in this country, otherwise well-meaning employees can be racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or xenophobic in ways that they may not really even be aware of," he explained. "It’s the notion that people unknowingly or unconsciously discriminate against others."
