WATCH: Trump-loving British right-winger gets doused with a milkshake by anti-racism protester

Published

Trump-loving U.K. politician Nigel Farage on Monday became the latest high-profile far-right figure to find himself on the receiving end of a milkshake bath.

Scotland’s The Herald reports that a 32-year-old man named Paul Crowther on Monday doused Farage with the milkshake he was holding while the politician was talking with voters in the city of Newcastle.

In a video posted by The Herald, Farage is seen talking with a couple of voters before moving away from them. As he’s walking away, Crowther approaches and quickly dumps his milkshake all over Farage’s suit.

Crowther was subsequently taken away in handcuffs by law enforcement officials, witnesses said.

In an interview with The Herald, Crowther said that he wasn’t originally planning on dousing Farage and claimed that he saw the former UKIP leader in a chance encounter.

“I didn’t know he was in town, I thought this is my only chance,” he said. “The bile and the racism he spouts out in this country is far more damaging than a bit of milkshake to his front.”

Multiple far-right figures in the U.K. have been doused with milkshakes in recent days, including UKIP’s Carl Benjamin and ex-English Defense League leader Tommy Robinson.

The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.

Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump

Published

In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.

Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.

2020 Election

Inside the secret GOP plan to keep power in 2020 — and beyond

Published

on

In 2020, we need to pay attention to state elections as well as elections for president and Congress. State elections could decide whether the Republican Party further corrupts American democracy.

As demographics change — and America becomes more diverse and more liberal — the GOP has responded by implementing policies that will take away power from the American people. Rather than changing with the times, they’ve got another plan: minority rule – by them.
