Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been scrutinized by right-wing media over her Green New Deal, which is an effort to combat climate change.
On Thursday, Trever Noah, host of The Daily Show, mocked right-wing media reporters over their exaggerations about what the deal is proposing.
Several have interpreted this as Ocasio-Cortez seeking to rid America of meat and that she is trying to turn everyone into a vegan.
“Over at Fox News when they heard Ocasio-Cortez and climate change sirens with off,” Noah joked.
He then played a clip of Hannity ranting about it.
“No more steak. I guess government forced veganism is in order,” Hannity said.
Noah then proceeded to mocked Hannity.
“Yeah they’ll force feed us broccoli. Yeah we are all going to be ganged-banged by vegetables,” he joked.
Establishment Dems pressuring new congress members to attend AIPAC Israel junket: report
For years, freshman Democratic lawmakers have faced pressure to attend an AIPAC sponsored trip to Israel, where they were denied access to Gaza and other territories controlled by Israel.
The pressure remains stronger than ever today, reports The Intercept, even as Israel's mideast policy is increasingly questioned.
Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) assured AIPAC that this year the trip would be as well attended as it has been previously. “Like many of you, I’ve traveled to the communities in the south of Israel that have endured rockets and tunnels. I’ve traveled with over 150 of my fellow Democratic members of Congress to meet with those who live under the constant threat of terror,” he said in an April address to AIPAC.
Trump leveled by retired general for making Iran war decisions based on advice from Fox News hosts
During a panel discussion on the increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran after a drone was shot down by the Middle Eastern country in international airspace, a retired general claimed he was worried about Donald Trump's response based upon who it appears the president listens to when it comes to advice.
Speaking with host John Berman, retired Lt. General Mark Hertling warned that the shootdown was a dangerous provocation.
"It's huge, John," Hertling explained. "You can go all the way from backing down completely to a full-scale war -- that's what's dangerous about this situation."
DOJ money laundering probe of Deutsche Bank includes Kushner transactions: report
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) is conducting a criminal investigation of possible money laundering violations by Deutsche Bank, and the New York Times is reporting that the probe will include taking a look at some 2016 transactions involving Kushner Cos. — the business owned by the family of Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law.
In banking, reports of possibly suspicious activity are known as “suspicious activity reports,” and the DOJ is investigating why Deutsche Bank prepared such alerts for activity involving Kushner Cos. but did not file them. A key figure in the DOJ’s investigation is whistleblower Tammy McFadden, who helped prepare suspicious activity reports for Kushner Cos.-related transactions. McFadden is a former compliance officer for Deutsche Bank.
