Republican Rick Santorum bashes White House for ‘sideshow’ behavior that has a ‘corrosive effect’ on the GOP

Published

on

On Tuesday, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum warned that the ‘sideshow’ antics in the White House have a negative impact on the Republican party.

The special election runoff for the U.S. Senate seat in Mississippi, between disgraced Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy, is very close.

Santorum noted that no matter who wins that it will be a bad night for Republicans.

“I think Cindy Hyde-Smith will win this race. But this is not going to be a great night for Republicans,” Santorum told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “If we end up winning this by six or seven points, that is just more of the same from election day.”

“So the message to the White House is that the sideshow that goes on every day in the White House has a corrosive effect on our ability to win races,” he said.

He added, “We would be talking about a lot of different things. We spent most of the time tonight talking about Donald Trump and Mueller instead of other issues that may have fit in that could have been important to drive a different message.”

“So message to the White House– the fixation on this scandal is having electoral consequences now with 40 house seats,” Santorum said.

O'Brien's appointment comes a week after the firing of Bolton, who was known to clash with Trump because of his hawkish foreign policy positions.

A Massachusetts tow truck driver was caught on camera last weekend hurling racist abuse at a black man.

"Because of your f*cking n*gger husband," says the driver, whom she identified as Jeff, as he walked toward his truck.

The woman confronts the driver about the racial slur, and the driver confirms that's what he said and then pulls out his own phone to record the incident.

"Look me up -- my last video of a white man went viral, of the motorcycle girl that hit the news," she tells the driver. "I bet you this goes viral, too."

Christian conservatives are giving Americans an ‘allergic reaction’ to religion: researchers

Published

on

The number of Americans identifying as atheists is increasing -- and recent social science research suggests that the Christian Right is playing a key role in making that happen.

As reported by Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight, new research has found that distaste for Trump-loving Christian conservatism has not just turned some Americans off from individual churches but from religion altogether.

"As recently as the early 1990s, less than 10 percent of Americans lacked a formal religious affiliation, and liberals weren’t all that much likelier to be nonreligious than the public overall," FiveThirtyEight notes. "Today, however, nearly one in four Americans are religiously unaffiliated. That includes almost 40 percent of liberals — up from 12 percent in 1990, according to the 2018 General Social Survey."
