“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg shamed a conservative writer for trying to mock newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for wearing a business suit at the Capitol.
Eddie Scarry, a reporter for the Washington Examiner, shared a photo of Ocasio-Cortez wearing a black suit, and suggested she was a hypocrite for wearing the outfit after claiming she didn’t have enough money to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C.
“The first thing I understand when I see what you wrote, sir, is that you know nothing about women’s clothing,” Goldberg said. “You know nothing about women’s clothing.”
She said there was no way to determine how much the newly elected lawmaker had spent on the suit — not that the cost matter.
“Listen, women can put together an outfit and make it look like a zillion dollars, it costs 45 cents,” Goldberg said. “If you’ve got to look good, that’s what women do, so that’s a little — you know, hush, boy.”
Goldberg said the double standard was glaring.
“You know, really what I found interesting is that we have had newly elected officials sleep in their offices because they couldn’t afford the rent, on both sides,” she said.
Guest host Ana Navarro named House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) as lawmakers who’d slept in their offices, and co-host Joy Behar pointed out Joe Biden had, as well.
“Again, as I said, young sir, shhh,” Goldberg said.
Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.
On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.
Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).
Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”
This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying
President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.
The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.
"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
Russia launches criminal case over gay couple’s adoption
Russia on Wednesday said it had opened an unprecedented criminal case accusing officials of negligence for allowing a gay couple to adopt two children.
The Investigative Committee, which probes serious cases, said that Moscow social workers were suspected of criminal negligence for allowing the two boys to live in the family since 2010.
This is the first such case ever launched, reported Interfax news agency.
"Nothing like this has happened before," said lawyer Maksim Olenichev of Vykhod (Coming Out) support group based in the northwestern city of Saint Petersburg.
He told AFP he was in talks with the family to represent them legally because "we think we need to defend this family from the actions of the state."
