Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX)

A Texas Republican warned that his party would keep shrinking if they continued acting like “assh*les.”

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), the only black Republican in the House, made the remarks at a gathering organized by the Log Cabin Republicans, reported the Washington Blade.

“If you’re at least the age of 40 in most places across this country you have to whisper that you’re a Republican,” Hurd said. “This is a party that is shrinking. The party is not growing in some of the largest parts of our country.”

He blamed bad behavior by other Republicans for that trend line.

“Why is that? I’ll tell you — it’s real simple,” Hurd said. “Don’t be an assh*le. Don’t be a racist. Don’t be a misogynist, right? Don’t be a homophobe. These are real basic things that we all should learn when we were in kindergarten.”

A C-SPAN caller from North Carolina claimed on Tuesday that pharmaceutical companies are plotting to include a tracking device in COVID-19 vaccines.

"I'm 71 years old, basically in pretty good health," a caller named Mark told C-SPAN's Washington Journal. "I don't really have any problem taking the vaccine except that I'm hearing of the possibility of them including a barcoded tracking device that will be a part of the vaccination and they say the reason for that, if it's true, would be to better get effective results with respect to the virus and the vaccination."

"Where are you reading this report?" the C-SPAN host interrupted.

Republicans are giving Trump ‘two more weeks’ to see the ‘writing on the wall’ before intervening: CNN’s Raju

Top Republican officials are remaining silent as President Donald Trump continues peddling false conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, but a new report from CNN's Manu Raju suggests their patience does have its limits.

During an interview with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Raju said that Republicans know they're going to have to acknowledge President-elect Joe Biden won the election at some point, although they're trying to string it out for as long as they can to avoid angering the president.

"Republican senators tell me they believe this will all sort itself out on December 14th," he explained. "I have it at two more weeks, hoping it gets resolved by the time that the state electors are chosen, and at that time they hope the president sees the writing on the wall and they do not have to get involved."

Here’s how Biden plans to roll back Trump’s executive orders in his first 100 days

Published

On Tuesday, CNN reported that President-elect Joe Biden is already mapping out his agenda for the first 100 days — including a series of actions rolling back outgoing President Donald Trump's executive orders on a wide spectrum of issues.

"Trump officials have gutted or hamstrung agencies whose charters clash with the President's long-running efforts to crush what his former chief strategist derisively labeled 'the administrative state,'" reported Gregory Krieg, MJ Lee, and Sarah Mucha. "That means an early effort, Biden indicated in his NBC News interview, to rebuild the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA, he said, has been 'eviscerated' by Trump."
