Trump-loving media figure accused of making sexual comments to teen girls encourages Trump to shoot migrants

Michael Moates with Sean Hannity

Michael Moates, a Trump-loving conservative media figure who has been accused by multiple underage girls of making inappropriate sexual comments, encouraged President Donald Trump on Monday to shoot any migrants approaching the United States border.

Responding to a President Trump tweet about the caravan of Central American migrants constituting a “National Emergy” (sic), Moates wrote a three-word reply that simply said, “Shoot on site.”

Moates’ recommendation to shoot the immigrants “on site” is actually a malapropism, as the correct term for shooting someone when you first see them is “on sight.”

Moates subsequently deleted the tweet — but not, he says, because he realized that it’s wrong to advocate gunning down women and children seeking asylum in the United States.

“Let me clarify that his tweet was in the context of Donald Trump addressing illegal aliens coming into this country without permission and I also want to go as far as to say the only reason the tweet was deleted was because I was afraid Twitter would ban me,” he wrote in a followup tweet.

Earlier this month, a report from Right Wing Watch documented how multiple pro-life Christian teens have accused the 23-year-old Moates of making sexual comments to them and sending them “inappropriate” photos despite knowing that they were underage.

Moates has responded to the accusations by saying, “The fact that you can’t call a woman beautiful without offending them anymore is a problem.”

Cities across the United States are already seeing the impacts of climate change. Sea levels are on the rise in Miami, Florida, where ocean waters creep into the streets, even when it isn't raining. Massive wildfires have taken out whole neighborhoods in California and in Alaska, about 2.5 million acres have burned since July 3. Wildfires there are getting worse, according to experts.

The problem of climate change has reached a dangerous level for some homeowners in areas that are no longer insurable. In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a Texas Democrat who is running for president in 2020, told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that he believes assault weapons are "instruments of terror" and the government should implement a mandatory buyback policy.

I was asked about @SenToomey saying mandatory buybacks are "awful."

I said the priorities in D.C. are screwed up.

What's awful is a 17 month-old baby shot in the face with an AR-15 in Odessa. What's awful is 22 people killed in a Walmart buying school supplies in El Paso. pic.twitter.com/JAN1xfrQYS
