WATCH: Ted Lieu humiliates Candace Owens for her historically illiterate Hitler comments at House hearing

Published

on

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) on Tuesday busted Trump supporter Candace Owens about historically illiterate remarks she made earlier this year about Adolf Hitler.

While criticizing the Republican Party’s choice to invite Owens to testify before a Congressional hearing, Lieu took out his phone and played audio of Owens saying that the only problem she had with Hitler was he wanted to be a “globalist” and expand his brand of fascism around the world instead of keeping it in Germany.

“If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK, fine,” Owens said. “The problem is he wanted, he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize, he wanted everybody to be German, everybody to be speaking German, everybody to look a different way. To me, that’s not nationalism.”

After playing the clip, Lieu then asked Anti-Defamation League executive Eileen Hershenov if statements like Owens’ “feed into white nationalist ideology.”

“It does, Mr. Lieu,” she replied, although she added that Owens “distanced herself from those comments later.”

Nonetheless, Hershenov said that the ADL “expressed great concern over the original comments.”

‘Which Senator up this year most deserves to lose?’: Preet Bharara flooded with replies to provocative question

Published

on

Former United States Attorney Preet Bharara asked his 1.2 million Twitter followers a provocative question on the eve of President Donald Trump's impeachment trial.

With worries that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is presiding over a sham trial, many analysts have suggested that the Senate itself will be on trial.

"Which Senator up this year most deserves to lose?" Bharara, who was fired by Trump, asked.

There are a number of potentially vulnerable Republicans facing voters in 2020, including McConnell himself, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC), Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
