RNC claims of Trump’s Syria victory undermined by bomb explosion near NBC News team — that killed their driver

Published

The chairwoman of the Republican National Committee lashed out at the press on Saturday.

RNC chair Ronna McDaniel issued a “media bias alert” and specifically attacked MSNBC’s coverage.

“On Friday, when the [Robert] Mueller report was completed, ISIS’s last stronghold in Syria was also eliminated,” McDaniel claimed.

“Since then, MSNBC has not covered ISIS’s defeat for a single minute, refusing to acknowledge this huge win for [President Donald Trump] and the world.”

After McDaniel lashed out at MSNBC for not covering the accomplished mission in Syria, a number of people pointed out that NBC News crew was involved in bomb attack — in Syria.

“We are thankful that NBC employees escaped unharmed, however one of the local drivers working with them was tragically killed,” NBC News President Noah Oppenheim said. “Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.”

McDaniel subsequently received a great deal of criticism for her attack on MSNBC.

Here is what some people were saying at the RNC attacks.

The few police willing to join in solidarity with protesters

Published

on

Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.

A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.

There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."
