On Thursday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo grilled White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway over the president’s habits of inciting violence.
Trump said that his supporters including the police and military will get “tough” with those whose oppose him.
“Are you open to saying he should not have said what he said?” Cuomo asked Conway.
“You’re just reading into it like you usually do. You have to read the entire interview. He was talking about how peaceful and gentle many people are who are otherwise tough,” she responded.
She then began randomly rambling about Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and said that she incites violence.
“It has nothing to do with the question,” Cuomo said.
“She crazily told people, to get up in their faces. If you see somebody in the Trump cabinet,” Conway tried to explain.
“Is this that frightening? You really can’t defend it,” Cuomo said.
Wall Street is ignoring the omens of recession — here’s why
The Federal Reserve seems a lot more concerned about the state of the economy than it’s been letting on.
The Fed lowered its target interest rate by a quarter point on Sept. 18, the second such cut since July – and the first reductions since the Great Recession more than 10 years ago.
Judging by the words of Fed Chair Jerome Powell, this isn’t that big a deal. In his statement following the decision, he said: “We took this step to help keep the U.S. economy strong in the face of some notable developments and to provide insurance against ongoing risks.”
Elizabeth Warren accuses Congress of complicity in Trump’s continued abuses
Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused the U.S. Congress of complicity in President Donald Trump's continued abuse of power late Friday, after reports surfaced of his alleged attempts to solicit foreign meddling in the 2020 presidential election, and reiterated her demand that Democrats use their majority in the House to pursue impeachment.
Warren's tweeted statement came hours after the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's opposition to a Ukrainian prosecutor in 2016.
‘Resistance’ liberals love the FBI and CIA — but history says they don’t love you back
A freaky moment recently transpired on television. In a nonfiction adaptation of “American Horror Story,” Bill Maher, nominally a member of the liberal “Resistance,” led his audience and guests in applauding and paying tribute to the FBI and CIA. To her credit, panelist (and rival talk-show host) Krystal Ball remained stoic, refusing to bring her hands together or smile. But even she allowed the moment to pass without noting the obvious: The CIA and the FBI are two of the most anti-democratic and violent forces in the history of our country.
Maher’s weird and historically illiterate “tribute” to two organizations with endless résumés of human rights violations, political persecution of dissidents and overseas coups directed at democratic governments — not to mention stunning failure at the principal tasks of their mission — punctuated his declaration of gratitude for “our safety” since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The comedian and commentator then tried to dress this right-wing, jingoistic bromide in progressive drag by reminding the crowd that President Trump has “disrespected” both agencies.
