CNN’s Jake Tapper mocks Trump for only making it four days before attacking a sexual assault survivor

Published

on

President Donald Trump has shown unusual restraint in his comments about California professor Dr. Christine Ford who accused Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

CNN’s Jake Tapper took a jab at the president during Friday’s show. Tapper “congratulated”  Trump for acting slightly presidential for once.

However, Trump couldn’t hold his tongue for too long and started attacking Dr. Ford at his rally in Las Vegas.

“The restraints are off after making it four days, congratulations, without going after the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault,” Tapper said. “President Trump is on the attack against her — even ridiculing her parents.”

Internet destroys ‘opposite of a journalist’ Chuck Todd over his ‘vapid’ Trump interview

Published

on

While NBC might be happy with the ratings it got from a highly-touted interview with Donald Trump conducted by Meet The Press host Chuck Todd, the reviews of the NBC political director's performance were bad. Really bad.

Focusing on Todd's inability, or lack of desire, to push-back on any of the president's claims -- including particularly egregious claims Trump made about detaining immigrant children at the border that the president blamed on Barack Obama, -- one Twitter commenter called what Todd does for a living the "opposite" of journalism.

Particularly brutal was an assessment by NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen who tweeted: "Just watched @chucktodd 'interview' the president about kids and the border. I don't what that was. But it was not public discourse. Nothing to do with eliciting information, or accountability, or where do you stand? It was like feeding English sentences into a wood chipper."

Rudy was the original Trump: How NYC in the ’90s shaped American history

Published

Running on a platform of overt racial division and culture-war politics — and aggressively demonizing the most vulnerable members of society — a white male Republican wins a hotly disputed election, in defiance of all conventional wisdom and a rapidly diversifying electorate. He replaces the first black man to hold the office, vowing to turn back to clock to an idealized past.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Once in office, the newly elected leader becomes a uniquely polarizing figure, viewed by some as a hero and savior and by others as a corrupt, racist villain. He thrives on media disputes with his enemies, attacks on freedom of speech, outrageous proposals that will never be enacted and grossly exaggerated claims about his accomplishments.

WATCH: White man gets brutally shouted down for telling black kids they can’t play in their own yard

A video which went viral over the weekend shows two white men arguing over what appears to be black children playing near their own homes.

"Keep on playing kids!" a white man, who was later identified as "Nick" can be heard shouting in a video posted by Twitter user @_SamuelLahn.

According to the tweet, a "racist neighbor" had demanded that the "mostly black" children cease playing between two apartment buildings.

"Y'all keep on playing!" Nick says. "I know every single one of y'all lives here. So, please, sir, step away if you don't live here."

"Let them go wherever the fuck they want if they live here!" Nick shouts back after the man disagrees with him. "Guess what? You only own your porch... from there on out, it's free play."
