The View’s Meghan McCain tries to bust Kamala Harris in a ‘weird lie’ about weed — and gets quickly shut down

Published

on

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain tried to trap Sen. Kamala Harris in a “weird lie” about what music she listened to the first time she tried weed, but Sunny Hostin quickly shut her down.

Harris told a radio show that she had smoked pot as a college student, and she cited a pair of rappers whose debut albums came out well after her university days were over.

“The political aspect of Kamala’s interview is she’s caught in a weird lie,” McCain said. “She said she smoked listening to Tupac and Snoop Dogg. She graduated from Howard University in 1986. Tupac’s debut album came out in 1991, and Snoop’s in 1993. She’s either smoking marijuana after the time she said she is or she was listening to different albums or she’s misremembering.”

“This is getting play online,” she added. “The thing I would say to Sen. Harris is, I was impressed with her authenticity. Hillary Clinton was a beta test for not trying to be too cool. Don’t try and be too cool. You’re already cool — you have an interesting background, interesting career so far. Just try to fix our country.”

Hostin pointed out that marijuana was legal in California, and McCain asked why she would bring up two rappers who came out several years later.

“It reminded me about hot sauce in my bag,” McCain said, referring to comments Clinton made on the campaign trail about traveling with hot sauce in her purse.

Hostin headed McCain off, and said that Harris shouldn’t suffer any blowback for her hip-hop anachronism.

“I will say that Trump has lowered the bar so low that it’s not going the matter if she smoked pot during Tupac or Biggie or Beyoncé or anything,” Hostin said.

Host Joy Behar chimed in: “In the age of Trump, I think marijuana should be mandatory, frankly.”

Trump’s ‘craziness’ will drive Mexico to find other sources of soybeans — permanently hurting US farmers: Ex-diplomat

Published

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

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-IL).

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

Published

on

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."
