Published

on

The Republican machine is in fifth gear right now, speeding to attack one of their top Democratic targets: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

At issue, a video the New York Democrat recorded in which she calls the migrant detention camps on the U.S. Southern border “concentration camps.”

 

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is demanding Rep. Ocasio-Cortez apologize: “Not only to the nation but to the world,” he said. “She does not understand history,” he charged.

“But there is no comparison,” McCarthy claimed, “and to actually say that is embarrassing. To take something that happened  in history where millions of Jews died…and equate that to somewhere that’s happening on the border…she owes this nation an apology,” he said.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is refusing to back down, because she is right:

Carson began his prayer with a standard invocation thanking God for "the blessings that you have bestowed upon this country."

After that, though, Carson gave God a thumbs-up for the work He's done in putting Trump in the White House.

"We thank You for President Trump, who also exhibits great courage in face of constant criticism," Carson said. "We ask you give him strength to endure and wisdom to lead and to recognize you as the sovereign of the universe, with the solution to everything."
