‘What the hell happened’ to the GOP?: CNN’s Chris Cuomo laments death of Republican conservatism

Published

on

On Friday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo schooled the Republicans about the traditional values of their own party.

U.S. Congressman Steve King (R-IA) came under scrutiny this week after he asked why the terms “white nationalism” and “white supremacism” were “offensive,” in an article for The New York Times.

“What did the hell happen?” Cuomo asked.

“This isn’t the Republican Party. Remember with Trent Lott and George W. Bush, how Lott was making a joke about Strom Thurmond and George W. Bush came out and said, ‘this is not who we are,'” Cuomo said.

“Segregation was a horrible period. Lott apologized. He actually stepped down from a position. That was the Republican Party. The conservative values, character counts,” Cuomo said.

Gun ‘Van Gogh killed himself with’ to go under hammer

The revolver with which Vincent van Gogh is believed to have shot himself is to go under the hammer Wednesday at a Paris auction house.

Billed as "the most famous weapon in the history of art", the seven mm Lefaucheux revolver is expected to fetch up to 60,000 euros ($67,000).

Van Gogh experts believe that he shot himself with the revolver near the village of Auvers-sur-Oise north of Paris, where he spent the last few months of his life in 1890.

Discovered by a farmer in 1965 in the same field where the troubled Dutch painter is thought to have fatally wounded himself, the gun has already been exhibited at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Published

China's powerful President Xi Jinping has been dealt a rare setback with the suspension of unpopular legislation in Hong Kong following massive protests, but Beijing could bite back by tightening its grip on the semi-autonomous city, according to analysts.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters returned to the streets of Hong Kong on Sunday, calling for the resignation of the territory's pro-Beijing leader Carrie Lam -- even after she suspended a deeply unpopular bill that would have allowed extraditions to the mainland.

Xi is not used to such challenges, having consolidated his power and tightened his grip on civil society on the mainland since taking office in 2012.

Half of the registered voters in Texas would vote to reelect President Donald Trump, but half of them would not, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

Few of those voters were wishy-washy about it: 39% said they would “definitely” vote to reelect Trump; 43% said they would “definitely not” vote for him. The remaining 18% said they would “probably” (11%) or “probably not” (7%) vote to give Trump a second term.
