Sarah Sanders slammed for saying she has ‘never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life’

Published

on

Sarah Sanders is being strongly criticized for defending the students who harassed a Native American veteran over the weekend. The White House White House press secretary told Fox News, “I’ve never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life.”

Sanders, who says President Trump will meet with the students from the Kentucky conservative private Catholic school in the White House after the shutdown, spoke with Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday night, as Talking Points Memo reports.

“I think what happened with BuzzFeed is a great lesson for the media,” Sanders said, referring to the news outlet’s story that President Trump told Michael Chen to lie to Congress. Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office refuted aspects of the article, Buzzfeed is standing by its reporting.

“Quit trying to be first and start trying to be right,” she continued, directing her anger at the media. President Donald Trump has told on average about six lies per day since taking office two years ago.

“We have seen time and time again where they run out here with outrageous, ridiculous stories. One person reports it to begin with and they all jump on it. We saw it again with the Covington students. I’ve never seen people so happy to destroy a kid’s life.”

Sanders, in the video above, begins by claiming President Trump “would love for people to report things accurately.” (Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt has said Trump means, “report the story the way I want it reported.”)

Some on social media were quick to jump on Sanders for her hypocrisy. Among them, David Hogg, one of the Parkland student survivors who were mercilessly attacked and bashed on Fox News and in the conservative media as “crisis actors,” and worse:

Many others noted the Trump administration since 2017 has enacted a policy to intentionally separate thousands of migrant children from their families at the border, in a failed effort to deter others from attempting to cross the border in violation of the law, which is a misdemeanor.

Take a look at some of the responses:

How the conservative right hijacks religion

Published

pastors praying over trump in oval office

Democrats are beginning to challenge the Republican grip on the language of religion and faith in the United States. Democrat Sen. Chris Coons, a graduate of Yale Divinity School, recently wrote an essay for The Atlantic, “Democrats Need to Talk About Their Faith.”

This is a bold and necessary move. However, it may come up against scientific and progressive resistance. This resistance is based on the claim that science and religion, or religion and progressive politics, are incompatible.

Democrats mulling revenge against Mitch McConnell over his treatment of Merrick Garland

Published

on

A report from Politico indicates that there is a battle within the Democratic Party on how much power they will exert placing judges on federal benches should they retake the White House in 2020.

Citing the way that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held open the Supreme Court seat that was supposed to be filled by Chief United States Circuit Judge Merrick Garland, only to have Trump nominate conservative jurist Neil Gorsuch to the court, Democrats are considering using hardball tactics of their own.

It’s just good business: Even red states are dumping coal for solar

Published

on

Arizona, despite being GOP-dominated, is number 3 in the US for residential solar power production. In the first quarter of 2019 alone, Arizona homeowners put in 52.83 megawatts of new solar installations. As for industrial-scale solar, Arizona utility APS generates 1.4 gigawatts worth of solar power, equivalent to a small nuclear plant. APS’s rival TEP is planning residential solar installations in 90,000 Arizona homes. APS is also pursuing new storage capacity and wind power. Arizona now generates more electricity from solar than from hydroelectricity, though its 4 gigawatt Palo Verde nuclear plant is one of the state’s most important sources of power.
