On MSNBC Saturday, former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook blasted President Donald Trump and the GOP for circulating the fake video of Nancy Pelosi edited to make her look like a stammering drunk — but also had harsh words for Facebook for allowing the video to stay up.
“This is the normal trope, right? It’s the crazy old lazy, is there something wrong with her health?” said Mook. “You recall Hillary wore those glasses to testimony that the Republicans dragged her in for, and they claimed that it meant she had some sort of brain problem, which was utterly absurd. I do really worry about this, and it is a problem that women face more than men, and in a worse way than men.”
“But there is one other piece of this that really bothered me, and that is that Facebook refused to pull these posts down,” he continued. “I mean, these guys are acting like the cigarette companies. Or the gun manufacturers, you know, ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people.’ If there is fake material, fake videos on the internet, they have that obligation to pull this down. And if it’s that’s not illegal, it’s not illegal to leave it up, then we need to pass a law so it is. I mean, it’s outrageous.”
Mississippi fast food cashier ‘terminated immediately’ for ugly racist slur on customer’s receipt
The owner of a fast food restaurant in Mississippi "terminated immediately" an employee after a racist and misogynistic slur of patrons.

A photo of the receipt then spread on social media.
George Conway calls out fears Trump will compromise new US intelligence initiative aimed at Russia
On Saturday, George Conway drew attention to a specific passage of a new article from The New York Times about the intelligence community's efforts to counterattack the Russian power grid, in response to years of covert Kremlin attacks on our own:
“[O]fficials described...hesitation to go into detail with Mr. Trump about operations against Russia for concern...that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation...to the Russian foreign minister.” https://t.co/BXTjjXBmia
