Elizabeth Warren blasts Fox News as ‘hate-for-profit racket’ that uses ‘bigotry’ and ‘racism’ to refuse town hall offer

Published

“Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit.”

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the first to outright refuse Fox News’ offer to host a town hall for her. The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate who’s been slowly rising in the polls blasted the right wing cable giant as a “hate-for-profit racket” in announcing a “hard pass” on appearing on their network.

Senators Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar have already held their Fox News town halls. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Mayor Pete Buttigieg have each agreed to a Fox News town hall.

Warren, in an expressive Twitter thread, explained her refusal, saying Fox News “gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists,” and “designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.”

Warren did not mention this very valid and important reason. “Fox News is not America,” and is not even conservative America. Despite having the largest viewership of all the cable news networks, “Fox News primetime viewers amount to less than 1% of the population.”

Take a look – and feel free to retweet, so maybe Rupert Murdoch will get the message.

Ex-Bush aide says Trump falls back on racism because he’s losing his mind: ‘Take him to Walter Reed for a full medical’

Published

MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan said President Donald Trump was stuck peddling racism because he's losing his mental faculties.

The former speechwriter and National Security Council staffer in George W. Bush's administration said Trump's attack on four Democratic congresswomen betrayed his inherent racism, and showed that he's mentally diminished.

"I think you're being a little bit too charitable regarding Donald Trump having an actual strategy in the first place," Jordan told "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough. "I think that this is who he is -- he's racist."

"You have seen it, you know, his entire career," she continued, "whether it's calling for five young black men who are innocent to be executed. you see it in his comments consistently throughout the course of his campaign wanting to ban an entire religion from entering the country, and just this week the horrible remarks that, you know, an elected official -- elected by her fellow countrymen and women should be grateful to be in the country and should leave otherwise."

Anger soars over vicious mob attack on Hong Kong protesters

Published

Anger soared in Hong Kong on Monday over a vicious assault on pro-democracy protesters by suspected triad gangsters that left dozens wounded, a dramatic escalation of the political turmoil plaguing the Chinese city.

The financial hub's roiling unrest took a dark turn late Sunday when gangs of men -- most wearing white T-shirts and carrying bats, sticks and metal poles -- set upon anti-government demonstrators as they returned from another huge march earlier that day.

‘That’s rich coming from the man who only loves one thing, himself’: Internet destroys Donald Trump after he attacks 4 Dems again

Published

on

President Donald Trump woke up Sunday morning at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and decided it was a good day to continue his attacks on the four progressive Democratic lawmakers he began targeting one week ago.

Now in day eight of his racist, nativist war on the Congresswomen who are also women of color, Trump called them "weak & insecure," demanded an apology, and decided (contrary to all evidence) they are not "capable of loving our Country."

America has had it with Trump's hate-mongering, racism, and white supremacism, and many across the country are speaking out in very clear terms about this president and his Sunday morning attack.
