WATCH LIVE: Beto O’Rourke’s first national town hall on CNN

Published

on

Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is set to hit the national stage during a town hall with CNN hosted by Dana Bash.

The Tuesday night town hall will take place in Des Moines, Iowa. O’Rourke has held nearly 175 town halls throughout the country in coffee shops and diners, however, this is first one on CNN.

Critics of O’Rourke scrutinized him over the celebrity-like roll out of his campaign and noted that he lacks real substance. His decision to appear on CNN shows a shift in campaign strategy.

“In an effort to rejuvenate his presidential campaign — which hasn’t yet benefited from the kinds of viral moments that catapulted him into the limelight as a Senate candidate last year — O’Rourke recently began participating in nationally televised interviews,” a report from CNN noted.

The former congressman from Texas admitted that the roll-out of his campaign which consisted of a Vanity Fair cover shot along with him declaring he was “born” to be president, was rooted in privilege.

“I was attempting to say that I felt my calling was in public service,” he said. “No one is born to be President of the United States of America — least of all me.”

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
