On Monday, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League told Fox News host Neil Cavuto that he was “suspicious” regarding the Notre Dame fire.
The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris caught on fire. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fire, and as of now, zero casualties have been reported.
“It’s a monumental tragedy. Forgive me for being suspicious. Last month, a 17th-century church was set on fire in Paris. We’ve seen tabernacles knocked down, crosses torn down, and statues,” Donohue said.
“We don’t know that. If we can avoid what your suspicions are. Now I’m wondering how much more the Catholic Church commits to this or do you think they first want to get to the bottom of it?” Cavuto said.
“First, they have to get to the bottom of it. They will rebuild it. There’s no question. I’m sorry. The Eucharist is being destroyed and excrement smeared on crosses,” Donohue said.
“We cannot make conjectures about this. I’m sorry. Thanks very much. I do want to let people know, we’re not trying to be rude to our guests. There’s so much we don’t know,” Cavuto said.
(Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Fox News was interviewing Cardinal Timothy Dolan. Raw Story regrets the error.)
Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental fitness just draw attention to his own problems: Joy Reid panel
MSNBC host Joy Reid gave some helpful advice to President Donald Trump and his children, who frequently attack former Vice President Joe Biden for his mental health: It makes you look worse.
Speaking to her closing Wednesday panel with Jason Johnson and Howard Fineman, Reid showed a super-cut of Trump's knack for getting words wrong, not knowing how to pronounce simple things, slurring his words, stumbling down the stairs, not knowing where to go, dragging his feet and more.
"Well, you know, my pretext for all my students this fall will be: person, woman, man, camera, tv, and if they can do that, I know they're at least as smart as the president," joked Johnson. "Here's the thing. Joe Biden demonstrated that he literally can ride a bike and do something else at the same time. Like, I have always thought the argument that Joe Biden has lost a step or has some sort of mental deficiency was a complete lie. It's Republicans just projecting. What's important to remember is that no matter how much they spout this nonsense, every single time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he looks worse. There is nothing Joe Biden can say that is more foolish or incoherent than Donald Trump in the middle of a substantive interview."
Here’s how Trump’s ‘nasty’ jab at Kamala reveals his misunderstanding of women
President Donald Trump has reprised one of his most common attacks on women — "nasty" — to describe Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
On Wednesday, writing for The New York Times, Katie Rogers broke down how the president's continual attacks on women in politics — combined with his characterization of women voters — reveals a fundamental misunderstanding of modern gender norms.
Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?
Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.
"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.
During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.
"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
